What Are GHRPS?
Until recently, testosterone therapy was the holy grail of hormone replacement therapy. Recent advances in poly-peptide synthesis, however, have advanced anti-aging science to new heights. Peptides are short, bonded chains of amino acids. They are similar to proteins, but are smaller and do not contain as many amino acids. Many peptides are produced naturally in the body. However, some peptides, such as Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRPs), are created exclusively in the laboratory.
GHRPs were developed to enhance the production of the body’s Human Growth Hormone (HGH) by stimulating the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. HGH, also known as somatropin, is a naturally occurring peptide hormone that boosts your body’s growth throughout childhood and adolescents. HGH also helps promote overall good health by regulating muscle and bone growth and helping us to metabolize sugar and fat. Unfortunately, the natural aging process compromises our body’s ability to manufacturer HGH, leading to a gradual depletion of muscle mass and an increase in fat.
