What are PEPTIDE HORMONES and what are they for?

Today I’m going to talk about this article about peptide hormones … (some of them)! First let’s understand what the word peptide means.

It is formed by the union between two or more amino acids. They are classified by the number of amino acids contained in their formulation, with 2 amino acids being classified as dipeptide, 3 amino acids – tripetídeo, 4 aminoacids – tetra peptide, with greater number of amino acids in this formation are called polypeptides.

Just for you to have an idea of ​​what these amino acids are, all that are found in the peptide formulation are classified by acronyms …

  • A-Ala-Alanine
  • C-Cys-Cysteine
  • D – Asp – Aspartic acid
  • E – Glu – Glutamic Acid
  • F-Phe-Phenylalanine
  • G-Gly-Glycine
  • H-His-Histidine
  • I-Ile-Isoleucine
  • K-Lys-Lysine
  • L-Leu-Leucine
  • M-Met-Methionine
  • N-Asn-Asparagine
  • P-Pro-Proline
  • Q-Gln-Glutamine
  • R-Arg-Arginine
  • S-Ser-Serine
  • T-Thr-Threonine
  • V-Val-Valine
  • W-Trp-Tryptophan
  • Y – Tyr – Tyrosine

And what does this table have in relation to peptides? They said, they are formed by amino acids so, here’s what goes from amino acids to form the peptides most known to you …

  • GHRP-6 (His-DTrp-Ala-Trp-DPhe-Lys-NH2)
  • GHRP-2 (DAla-D-2-Nal-Ala-Trp-DPhe-Lys-NH 2)
  • Hexarelin (His-D-2-methyl-Trp-Ala-Trp-DPhe-Lys-NH 2)
  • Ipamorelin (Aib-His-D-2-Nal-DPhe-Lys-NH2)

Well, this foundation is of little interest to most of you, so let’s take a closer look at these peptide hormones in practice and what they are for … let’s summarize this stop!

GHRP6 – The first peptide I’m going to talk about is GHRP-6. Its function is to increase the levels of GH in the body and also consequently, the levels of igf1, its main factor is the burning of fat and the increase of muscle mass. A disadvantage or advantage of its use is the great increase of appetite, yes it gives to hunger to damn, that can be an aggravating if the person is in a diet to dry (cuts), it opens more appetite that the boldenona believe!

As I said here, its main function is to increase GH (growth hormone) levels, so maybe ghrp6 is the darling of bodybuilders. However, it used in conjunction with another peptide called GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) the effect is much greater, further increasing the production of GH in this way.

Ghrp6 is very effective in treating injuries as well and is used in the aesthetic treatment for improvement in skin quality. It is generally used 2 to 3 times a day for a greater effect on GH production: fasting on waking, before lunch and before training. About half an hour before the first meal, when blood sugar levels are not high, that is, after blood sugar levels have taken time to fall after the last meal.

Well, let’s go to another peptide … GHRP-2 PRALMORELIN. Ghrp-2 has as its main characteristic and major function, increase in lean muscle mass and decrease in body fat, increase in energy body, strength and resistance, bone tissue growth, very good factor in anti-aging paper and improvement in conditions of joints.

Very effective in mass gain and can be used in conjunction with other peptides without problems, such as GHRP-6, it also has to be always used on an empty stomach (fasting) so that the effect is 100%, as explained above of the empty stomach motives in the GHRP-6. Effective doses of 10 ui 3 x a day are the most used …

Well let’s go to another peptide. I will summarize and put only the main functions of them so that the article does not get long and annoying!

This one is the most famous and known of the peptides. It is a POLIPEPTÍDEO, because it is formed by several amino acids in its constitution. IGF 1 or SOMATOMEDIN C, has the power compared to that of INSULIN (I speak of insulin in another article). Its main characteristics noted in the use is also to stimulate more the production of GH, which will lead to the increase of lean mass and with that, a greater burning of the adipose tissue (fats), also improves the skin and combats the wrinkles and therefore it is used in anti-age (age) treatment. Other functions of the IGF1 in the body, is to improve the quality of sleep, mood and good cholesterol levels, and it is reported in the use of improved energy levels in the body and the immune system is well protected against possible diseases such as flu and others related to the drop in immunity. in the same way, improves the quality of sexual life!

Let’s go to HGH Fragment 176-191 … it is also used to gain lean mass, but its action is greater in fat burning and therefore it is also used in fasting in the morning, being performed later, that heavy cardio for a greater burning of body fat. It is also used in combination with other peptides mentioned above, and is recommended to use in the early hours of the day and wait for the maximum time to make your 1st meal, for a better effect!

Going back to the peptides, let’s talk a little about IPAMORELIN … this is another peptide that is also used for fat burning. Its main function is this, muscle definition, being a potent anti-aging peptide, normally taken 30 minutes before training, to gain gains. For visible results the use is at least 3 months, less than this is silly to use, because it will not see anything expressive. This is also true for the other peptides I mentioned above. Therefore, they are expensive products, difficult to access and only use if you have bullet in the needle. In short, it’s not like EAS that anyone can go out shopping, it has almost no registered or cataloged side effects, but it’s gringa thing, if you have dim dim, good luck, just look for a doctor and do your exams, all process with him, because if you have money to buy peptides and obvious, that has money to pay a medical follow-up !!!

Well, there are a lot of peptides to talk about, and I’ll leave that to a new article, part II. I hope you have clarified what are the famous peptides that everyone comments in the gym, nowadays. It is worth remembering that they are a cluster of amino acids in a single product, not the class of EAS, and their function, most of the time, is to act directly in GH. GH being high, we will have more gain of lean mass, clean and free of the undesirable fats, besides having other functions in the organism mentioned above in the article.

Good people, I’m stopping here. Do you like article I about peptides? … so enjoy and share with your friends, information is never too much!
