Hexarelin is a peptide that is very similar to GHRP-6. The main use of Hexarelin is to stimulate the release of growth hormone by acting on the pituitary gland as well as the hypothalamus. Although it is commonly overlooked by many as a commonly usable peptide, it does have the largest growth hormone release of any growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP). Because this peptide can help release the natural production of growth hormone, it will not likely have an effect on shutting down one’s natural production of GH.
Similarly to GHRP-6, Hexarelin activates the pituitary gland and releases GH in pulses. A good benefit to this peptide is that it does not release any hunger pangs like GHRP-6 is commonly known to do. A suppression in somatostatin allows for full release of GH, since somatostatin is known to suppress the release of growth hormone.
Reduced Body Fat
Increased Muscle Mass
Increased Mineral Density
Strengthening of Connective Tissue
Improved Skin Elasticity
General misc benefits associated with GH
Increased cortisol levels
Increased prolactin levels
Lowered Libido (most possibly from increase of prolactin)
Along with the general associations with growth hormone, Hexarelin can also aid in cardiovascular protection associated with left ventricular pressure problems. It may also help heal scar tissue. Most of the advantages seen on studies with rats show that most of the benefits worked better when the subject was leaner (had less body fat).
Mixing, Storing, and Dosing of Hexarelin
Like many other peptides, Hexarelin is stored in a room-temperature, dry and dark location when in the freeze dried powdered form. To use the peptide, it must be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water using an insulin syringe, injecting the water very carefully down the side and avoid shaking the vial so that the hormone is not denatured. Once it has been reconstituted, it should be stored in a cool, dry and dark place like the refrigerator. It should be injected subcutaneously (into the fat) with an insulin needle. A common starting dose is 200mcgs per injection.
