What are peptides?
Peptides are short-chain amino acids that are found naturally in the human body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and these amino acids are specifically designed to regulate certain functions within the human body.
Peptides are used as a mode of therapy that are used to take existing sequences and rewrite to potentially regulate and rejuvenate functions. In simpler terms, they bind to and tell other cells what to do, mimicking or replacing the functions of the naturally occurring peptide. Peptides may have the ability to rewrite body chemistry to promote homeostasis, restoration and anabolism.
Growth hormone-releasing peptide 6, also known as growth hormone-releasing hexapeptide, is one of several synthetic met-enkephalin analogues that includes unnatural D-amino acids. It was developed for its potential growth hormone-releasing activity and are called growth hormone secretagogues.
GHRP-6 has a unique role in potentially elevating the levels of human growth hormone. This peptide works by acting at the hypothalamus and the pituitary in order to provide a signal to the body to initiate growth hormone secretion and release. Additionally it has the ability to inhibit Somatostatin, which is a hormone responsible for inhibition of Growth Hormone release. This means GHRP-6 may have the ability to enhance levels of growth hormone by reducing the influence of the somatostatin at the pituitary. Additionally, it has an action on somatotrophs (the pituitary cells) which encourages the discharge of growth hormone releasing hormone by increasing cAMP formation, which may further lead to the release of hGH from somatotroph stores [R].
Potential Benefits of GHRP-6
Research studies have shown that GHRP-6 stimulation of Growth Hormone secretion has a host of beneficial effects associated with possible increases in 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 [R].
