Peptides for Strength & Lean Muscle Mass
If you’re looking to gain lean muscle or increase your strength when in the gym, there are physician prescribed peptides that are used for their effect on an athlete’s muscle mass. Peptides can assist in the goal of growing bigger muscles possible. They may also help to burn body fat, improve muscle recovery and slow aging. Each type has specific purposes for which it is more useful. These compounds are in many cases beneficial because of how they boost release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. GH secretion is amplified when GHRH and GHRP substances are used together. (GHRH means growth hormone releasing hormone and GHRP means growth hormone releasing hexapeptide, a type of growth hormone releasing hormone). Essentially, peptides cause hypertrophy (increase in size of muscle cells) and hyperplasia (increase number of cells). It increases number of muscle cells as a downstream effect, promoting lean muscle gain. This is perhaps the primary reason why many of fitness enthusiasts, body builders and athletes follow a program combined with peptides.
Please Note: Some peptides and peptide hormones to enhance athletic activity are banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. If you are an athlete in any form of competition, the responsibility is yours to refer to their regulations and abide by them).
Perhaps, the primary reason why peptides are used in bodybuilding has to do with how they improve growth hormone production. It is no a secret how HGH helps to improve lean muscle mass. Your body uses peptides to promote increased secretion of HGH. They, therefore, make it easier to achieve an increase in muscle mass. Their usage may help enhance strength and boost testosterone production.
Among the other reasons why bodybuilders use peptides is its ability to help you recover faster. They can assist in making oxygen available to the muscle cells in sufficient amount. They can also improve your level of endurance and help to burn visceral fat.
CJC-1295 is a synthetic GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) analogue made up of 30 amino acids. It has been found to be highly effective with regards to the increase of growth hormone secretion and IGF-1 without negatively affecting the pulsatility of GH secretion. CJC-1295 is often combined with Ipamorelin due to its enhanced specificity as a GHRH. This peptide generates similar increases in growth hormone secretion, but without the appetite stimulation and increase in cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin, and aldosterone seen with other peptides in its class. This peptide has been found to be very well-tolerated and perfect when combined with Ipamorelin as it creates a synergistic effect.
POSSIBLE BENEFITS OF CJC-1295:
• Increases growth hormone secretion and IGF-1 Levels with no increase in prolactin
• Promotes Muscle Growth
• Promotes Fat Loss
• Increased Cellular Repair and Regeneration
• Promotes slow wave deep sleep
• Promotes clearer memory focus
The peptides CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin combined, provides both a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH), or amplifier, and a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP), or inducer. This combination will promote the increase of growth hormone (GH) and is effectively used for anti-aging purposes as well as those with inflammatory conditions, disease or those who have low IGF-1 levels.
Possible Benefits of CJC 1295/Ipamorelin include:
• By stimulating the production and secretion of GH, helps increase lean muscle mass, build strength and decrease body fat.
Increased fat metabolism, which can lead to overall improvements in body composition.
• Can assist muscle recovery from workouts, which allows for faster progression and typically more fat loss.
• Anti-aging properties, including improvements to sleep, energy, mood, bone density, immune function, and body composition.
Ipamorelin is one of the latest and greatest peptides in the growth factor family. Deemed one of the safest GHRP’s, Ipamorelin is a secretagogue (a substance that causes another substance to be secreted) and Ghrelin receptor agonist (promotes secretion from cells in the stomach and is important in appetite regulation and food intake). Ipamorelin is a 3rd generation GHRP and is regarded as the cleanest of the GHRP’s.
While taking Ipamorelin, your body’s natural chemistry shifts into a state where it must turn to fat as its primary fuel source, (and IGF-1 elevation) and enhances your metabolic activity / gastric motility leading to more calories being burned overall. Ultimately, this leads to an optimal state (what the body thinks is ghrelin) making your body work like a well-oiled machine. Ipamorelin’s long lasting effects include maximizing the full potential of body by working with its natural chemistry. Perhaps you are already doing regular, intense physical training, but you can improve your results with Ipamorelin. It promotes strength, growth, energy and vitality that last for hours. By taking Ipamorelin, you are using the physical processes of your body to achieve your dream body. The best thing about it is that you won’t experience any adverse side effects.
Ipamorelin can also be used to achieve a more youthful and energetic state though long-term use (6-12 months).
The Insulin-like Growth Factor is one of the endocrine hormones that is produced in the liver. The release of this hormone increases in the presence of Human Growth Hormone. Numerous cells throughout the muscles of the human body are equipped with cell receptors that have a high affinity for Insulin-like Growth Factor. This makes this hormone one of the best growth hormones and a facilitator of general cell growth which it does by targeting different specific tissues and in more autocrine cell communication processes, it facilitates cell division.
Some Benefits of the Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 and some of the reasons why it has substantial advantages include:
• It facilitates protein synthesis in the body.
• It regulates the storage of fat and channels it to be used for the production of energy. This results in a noticeable fat loss.
• Promotes positive effects on metabolism; increasing lean body mass and decreases fat
• It increases the regenerative properties of the body’s nerve tissues.
• Upregulates anti-oxidant benefit and ligament strength
• It boosts hyperplasia in muscle cells, which leads to fuller muscle tissues.
• Optimal IGF-1 and growth hormone levels are crucial to bone development during childhood and throughout adult life.
In simple terms, the weight gain that you will experience from the use of IGF-1 is not due to water weight. All your weight gain will be caused by actual muscle growth which is a long-term effect. Compared to steroids which are overly known for putting on water weight and often leading to adverse side effects, you will not get 10lbs from Insulin-like Growth Factors, but you will acquire solid muscle gain after every one or two weeks which will be composed of actual heavy muscle.
The most important feature of IGF-1 is its ability to cause hyperplasia in the human body. The body of a person who is on steroids goes through hypertrophy, this means that they will only be increasing the size of the existing cells in their muscles. On the other hand, IGF-1 leads to hyperplasia which purports the growth and development of new cells in the muscles. Generally, you will accomplish much more in terms of muscle density and size at a normal genetic level.
Ibutamoren is frequently used as an anabolic substance, to increase lean body mass and create bigger muscles. Increases Growth Hormone (GH) and Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) in a more physiologic, pulsatile manner.
• Mimics the action of ghrelin, the hormone of hunger.
• Increases muscle mass and strength.
• Reduces muscle wasting.
• Increases bone density.
• May improve sleep
• Increases IGF-1 which is associated with longevity.
• May have positive nootropic (brain function) effects.
• May help with wound healing.
• Studies also suggest that it may be beneficial in early Alzheimer’s Disease.
Lowers Triglycerides and Cholesterol
Lowers Hemoglobin A1C and Insulin levels.
• Improved Energy and Mood.
• Improved Overall Quality of Life.
What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin / GRF 1-29
The first “of its kind”, sermorelin developed in the 1970’s, is the original growth hormone releasing hormone secretagogue “blueprint” on which all other GHRH products were later to be based. This peptide is designed to mimic the effects of growth hormone releasing hormone by releasing somatropin (growth hormone) from the body’s somatotropic cells.
Benefits of Sermorelin
Sermorelin can cause the pituitary gland to release HGH above what it usually produces, resulting in:
• Increased lean muscle
• Positive influence on the immune system
• Increase of beneficial natural sleep patterns (HGH releases in excess during deep sleep)
While Sermorelin is approved by the FDA, it is banned by the World Anti Doping Agency for use in all sporting endeavours. This is due to the fact that it can enhance anabolism, recovery and potentially strength output as a result of the manner in which it supports the ligaments and tendons.
