Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2 (GHRP-2), also known as Pralmorelin, is a synthetically made growth hormone secretagogue, a peptide that stimulates the body to increase natural production of growth hormone. GHRP-2 is an agonist of ghrelin, a gut peptide and also known as “the hunger hormone”, which binds to the growth hormone secretagogue receptor. Ghrelin has been shown to stimulate growth hormone secretion and appetite initiation.
Functions and effects
GHRP-2 is used to increase muscle mass, decrease body fat, and enhance flexibility and joint health. GHRP-2 also promotes better recovery from injuries and training. GHRP-2 is also functions to improve sleep, enhance anti-aging benefits, and improved overall health and wellness. Higher growth hormone levels also lead to greater production of IGF-1 in the body, which improves in lean body composition, accelerates growth of muscle tissue and reduces body fat. GHRP-2 promotes significant increase in strength and endurance, especially when used long term. Athletic performance, physical capacity, and aging-related decline all have the ability to improve drastically with the use of this peptide.
GHRP-2 is generally administered 1-3 times daily at dosages ranging from 150mcg to 300mcg per administration.
Excessive usage of GHRP-2 can lead to water retention and tingling or numbness in the hands and feet. This can be a sign that the dosage is too high and should be reduced.
