GHRP-6 is short for Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 6 which is a hexapeptide with a chain comprised of 6 amino acids. This special sequence signals the body to begin secreting Growth Hormone (GH) while also blocking Somatostatin, a hormone that inhibits Growth Hormone release.
Research studies have shown that GHRP-6 stimulation of Growth Hormone secretion has a host of beneficial effects associated with increased growth hormone levels such as decreased body fat, increased muscle, and increased strength and stamina. Increased amounts of Growth Hormone then can cause the liver to secrete the hormone IGF-1 which has also been implicated in improving the animal body’s ability to burn fat and build muscle. Clinical cases have shown that the use of GHRP-6 was associated with increased muscle mass and a reduction of body fat.

GHRP-6 has become a viable alternative to Growth Hormone supplementation for anti-aging benefits.
