GHRP-2 Growth-Hormone-Releasing-Peptide-Two (GHRP-2) is a synthetic ghrelin analogue. It causes the release of endogenous (internal) Growth Hormone (GH) from somatotropes in the anterior pituitary gland. It works synergistically with GHRHs and lacks the lipogenic properties (fat creation/storage) of ghrelin. GHRP-2 excites the hypothalamus and causes a high release of GH which tapers back to baseline by the third hour post admin. This pulse closely represents that of the natural pulse of the human body giving it an advantage over synthetic GH use.
Benefits and Potential of GHRP-2
Similar to Ipamorelin, GHRP-2 has great benefit and potential in athletes and wellness. GHRP-2 has been studied and shown to be effective in treating age-related GH decline when used in combination with a GHRH such as CJC-1295. GHRP-2 when used with an equal dose of a GHRH creates a 3-hour pulse of GH that is double the amplitude of 8IU of synthetic GH. This makes it a more effective, healthier substitute to synthetic Growth Hormone with the added safety and lower cost benefits.
