GH-releasing peptides (GHRPs) are synthetic peptides that like GHRH act directly on pituitary somatotrophs to stimulate GH release. GHRP-2, an investigational drug, is one of the most potent members of the GHRP family. It has been shown to be effective in adults via the oral and intranasal as well as the iv route of administration.
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2 Synthetic is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 6 amino acids, having a molecular mass of 817.9 Dalton and a Molecular formula of C45H55N9O6.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The GHRP-2 hormone was lyophilized with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GHRP-2 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GHRP-2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 99.0% as determined by analysis by RP-HPLC.
AMINO ACID SEQUENCE
GHRP-2 FUNCTIONS AND ACTIONS
This peptide essentially could make the body to produce more human growth hormone. It works to stimulate centralized GH production along with a substance called ghrelin. Ghrelin is a neurological hormone that basically tells your body when you’re hungry, and it also has some regulatory functions in food intake and absorption, in addition to secretion of digestive acids. Also, GHRP-2 works to suppress somatostatin, which is a hormone that inhibits the release of GH in the body.
Because high ghrelin levels lead to extreme hunger, and we do not advise some peptides due to this side effect. In fact, the sister hormone of GHRP-2, GHRP-6 is a culprit when it comes to causing higher levels of hunger. GHRP-2 is a better choice since it stimulates very similar effects sans the extreme ghrelin increases that leads to hunger. But this isn’t to say that there won’t be a little bit of increased hunger. You’ll definitely feel hunger on this peptide than without it, but the effects it has on the body are outstanding. It’s just a flatout good thing to have more GH going throughout your entire system.
