If you’ve been researching how to increase your human growth hormone levels, either naturally or with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), you’ve probably come across a lot of different methods, advice or supplements/drugs that are available. Some of these are most likely scams but the number of options are truly increasing in the medical field. It used to be that you could either try to increase your growth hormone levels naturally or take HGH injections. These days, you have a bit more to choose from than just those two options. One of these alternatives is something called Ipamorelin.
Ipamorelin: the Growth Hormone-Releasing Peptide (GHRP)
Ipamorelin is not another synthetic version of human growth hormone. It is a peptide that stimulates the anterior pituitary gland to release growth hormone. The pituitary gland is a small gland that sits at the base of the brain and plays a major role in all kinds of endocrine, or hormone, functions. For example, the pituitary gland plays a role in regulating growth (via human growth hormone secretion), regulation of the thyroid, pain relief and temperature regulation.
Ipamorelin must be injected, just like with growth hormone itself. Once injected, it travels to the hypothalamus, which is located right above the pituitary gland, as well as the pituitary gland and stimulates the production of endogenous growth hormone. With ipamorelin injections, the body’s natural production of growth hormone will not be negatively affected or suppressed – it just stimulates it to increase production. With regular human growth hormone injections, the body may start to lose the ability to produce growth hormone on its own (since your injections are replacing it) and once therapy is stopped, your body will take a long time to recover and produce growth hormone again. This is the advantage of growth hormone stimulants such as ipamorelin or sermorelin acetate – they stimulate the body to produce more growth hormone and not at the expense of the body’s natural ability to create it itself.
The Benefits of Peptides in Anti-Aging
Ipamorelin is a peptide, meaning that it is a chain of amino acids. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins. These days, peptides are now considered the number one method used for anti-aging and wellness techniques. This is because peptides are naturally occurring within the human body leading to minimal side effects but are highly effective in what they do.
And what do peptides do? They help to grow and maintain the body and its natural processes. Aging leads to lower levels of essential amino acids as well as growth hormone. Peptides alone can stimulate the body’s natural production of growth hormone to increase.
In addition, the cost of peptides are significantly less than typical human growth hormone injections. In fact, HGH therapy could cost some patients up to $1,000 a month. With peptides, the cost is less than that over the course of three months versus one month of HGH injections.
What Can Ipamorelin Injections Do for You?
Ipamorelin therapy will increase cell synthesis and insulin secretion from pancreatic cells. It will also increase the hormone ghrelin in the stomach. All of this aids in the release of growth hormone and helps to control hunger. All of this works in the body to promote fat loss, the movement of nutrients around the body and an increase in lean muscle mass.
The benefits of ipamorelin are pretty amazing, especially to body builders who are looking to increase growth hormone in a more natural way as well as people who are suffering from adult-onset growth hormone deficiency who want to avoid HGH injections. The benefits include:
- improved muscle strength and muscle mass
- reduced body fat
- stronger bones
- joints and ligaments that heal and are less painful
- better skin
- increased energy and feeling of vitality
The Safety of Ipamorelin Injections
Ipamorelin doesn’t just work efficiently and quickly, but it is also one of the safest growth hormone stimulants out there on the market today. The main reason for this is that the injections do not affect blood levels of prolactin or cortisol. As mentioned previously, it also will not affect the body’s natural production of growth hormone, which is great for when the therapy comes to an end for whatever reason.
The body’s highest natural production of growth hormone occurs at night when the hormone is synthesized and released in pulses. We recommend that our patients follow this same idea when injecting Ipamorelin peptides by injecting at night, about half an hour before bedtime.
Our clinic offers ipamorelin injections, as well as many other options for increasing human growth hormone. In addition, we offer real HGH injections as well as sermorelin acetate, another hormone that stimulates the body’s natural production of growth hormone, also known as a secretagogue. If you are interested in human growth hormone therapy and would like to explore the various options available to you, consider giving our clinic a call to discuss these effective and affordable options now!
