AOD-9604 (Advanced Obesity Drug) peptide, also known as Lipotropin is a drug used in obesity treatment originally manufactured by Metabolic Pharmaceuticals. It is a peptide derived from amino acids 176-191 of the GH polypeptide, which enhances fat reducing effects.
AOD stands for Advanced Obesity. The peptide AOD-9604 is used in the treatment of obesity. It facilitates rapid burning of fats and development of muscles. One of the advantages of this drug is the absence of adverse effects on blood sugar and insulin resistance. AOD-9604 has shown potential effects to repair cartilage and muscle, and it is often used in the treatment of osteoarthritis. AOD-9604 is the first peptide of its kind. Obesity is a prevalent problem, especially in Western countries. This product may offer a solution because it is effective and has little effect on blood sugar.

The Development of AOD-9604 Peptide:
Investigators at Monash University discovered that the fat-reducing effects of GH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the GH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 177-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the GH molecule and appears to have no effect on growth or insulin resistance. It works by mimicking the way natural Growth Hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with unmodified Growth Hormone.
How does it work?
Individuals who need to maintain a certain height or those with obesity problems use AOD-9604 peptide. Most people use it to build muscle mass. AOD-9604 works by mimicking the function of human growth hormone in the regulation of burning fat metabolism. At the same time, it increases the activity of beta-3 receptors, which are relevant to overall metabolism. It is also known for its properties in the lipolysis stimulation, resulting in fat destruction. This makes it different from other medications that treat obesity. Other medications suppress appetite or the rate of food absorption. The peptide has a high capacity to burn fat. It triggers the release of fats from the fat cells which lead to obesity. It is especially great in reducing stubborn fats in the abdominal area.
