What is GHRP-2?

The full name of GHRP-2 is Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2. Its main purpose is to promote the secretion of growth hormone in the pituitary. The principle is that GHRP-2 can stimulate the release of ghrelin, which is one of the regulating substances that promote the secretion of growth hormone, and it is normally regulated by the nutrition intake of the human body. Generally speaking, the secretion of ghrelin will rise during the fasting and before eating. Compared with its little brother GHRP-6, GHRP-2 does not cause the serious side effect, that is, hunger.

GHRP-2 has a lot of benefits for people, such as reducing body fat, promoting sleep, increasing the release of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor), raising bone density, and accelerating the repair of cells after training. But in addition to the side effect, hunger, GHRP-2 also increases the levels of cortisol and prolactin in the body, as well as fatigue, tingling, numbness, and reducing insulin sensitivity. The reduction of insulin sensitivity is one of the factors contributing to diabetes. Cortisol can promote the energy supply of amino acid, glucose, and fatty acid, and keep the blood sugar level high.

GHRP-2 can be bought from almost all chemical laboratory companies, but in the United States, only purchases for research are legal, and any individual purchase behavior is illegal. In Japan, GHRP-2 10mg is one of the diagnostic drugs used to check the deficiency of growth hormone.
