Studies in Ipamorelin for Muscle Growth and Bone Density

Studies in Ipamorelin for Muscle Growth and Bone Density

  Ipamorelin, also known as NNC 26-0161, is a pentapeptide with the amino acid sequence Aib-His-D-2-Nal-D-Phe-Lys-NH2. Researchers suggest it may induce a peak in growth hormone (GH) synthesis by the pituitary gland via activating the growth hormone secretagogue receptors (GHS-Rs). In this respect, Ipamorelin is classified as a growth hormone secretagogue (GHS). It appears mimic...
Research in BPC-157 and the Digestive and Nervous Systems

Research in BPC-157 and the Digestive and Nervous Systems

  BPC-157 is a pentadecapeptide made of 15 amino acids and bears the sequence Gly-Glu-Pro-Pro-Pro-Gly-Lys-Pro-Ala-Asp-Asp-Ala-Gly-Leu-Val, and a molecular formula of C62H98N16O22. This is a fully synthetic peptide with a sequence not known to occur in nature. However, it is often termed a “gut peptide,” as it is suggested to have similar structure and properties to...
L-Glutathione and its Efficacy in the Liver, Brain, and Skin

L-Glutathione and its Efficacy in the Liver, Brain, and Skin

  L-Glutathione is a tripeptide made from the amino acids glycine, cysteine, and glutamine. It is naturally found in humans, animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria. In humans, it is produced by the liver and plays a central protective role against oxidative stress from heavy metals, free radicals, reactive oxygen species, peroxides, and many others. It...
Benefits of IGF-1 LR3 Peptides in Tissue Growth

Benefits of IGF-1 LR3 Peptides in Tissue Growth

  Scientists have created IGF-1 LR3 peptides by modifying the amino acid sequence of IGF-1. The new peptide has similar effects but higher potency and improved stability. The LR3 in the name describes the two modifications to the IGF-1 molecule. Long R3 IGF-1, or IGF-1 LR3, is an analog of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)....

Benefits and Side-Effects of Adipotide Peptides (FTPP)

  Adipotide peptide is a synthetic peptidomimetic and an experimental proapoptotic drug known as FTPP (Fat-Targeted Proapoptotic Peptide). Peptidomimetics are synthetic molecules that mimic a natural protein's structural domain. Adipotide binds to the protein receptor prohibitin, which is why it also bears the name Prohibitin-targeting peptide 1 (Prohibitin-TP01). By doing so, it has proapoptotic effects...
How Tesamorelin Fights Lipodystrophy and Other Conditions

How Tesamorelin Fights Lipodystrophy and Other Conditions

  Tesamorelin is a synthetic peptide analog of the growth hormone-releasing factor (GHRF). By mimicking the function of GHRF, Tesamorelin can trigger the GHRF receptors in the pituitary gland and stimulate the natural production of human growth hormone (hGH). As an hGH secretagogue, Tesamorelin peptide has been approved by the FDA for human use, more...
The Best Peptides for Hair Growth

The Best Peptides for Hair Growth

Hair loss can occur in men and women, but men experience it more frequently. Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss and has degrees of severity. Hair loss on the scalp and body can either be temporary or permanent. Androgenic Alopecia is hair loss caused by genetics; it worsens with age and can result...
Peptides Used to Promote Healthy Skin

Peptides Used to Promote Healthy Skin

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and performs numerous essential functions, but it is also vulnerable to various skin-harming infections and diseases. The skin is a barrier against thermal, physical, and mechanical injury and obstructive substances. It helps retain moisture and provides a sensory organ for temperature and touch. Furthermore, the...
