Ipamorelin is synthetic pentapeptide with strong growth hormone-releasing properties. It was was derived from GHRP1. Ipamorelin significantly increases plasma growth hormone levels, but simultaneously does not affect prolactin, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH) and or thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels, it is highly selective GH peptide for inducing the secretion of GH only.
Ipamorelin and scientific studies
According to scientific study that has been based on animal test subjects, Ipamorelin’s functionality is linked to the pituitary gland and the liver. It has been determined that the peptide works with the pituitary gland to increase secretions related to growth while simultaneously blocking secretions known to block the release of growth secretions. The peptide’s work with the liver induces an uptick in the expression of IGF-1. This secretion is noted to have high anabolic properties, which enables it to play a key role in the overall growth and repair of muscles and tissues. These interactions ultimately enable an animal test subject to experience an elevated measure of functionality relating to the growth and repair throughout its body.
Ipamorelin strengthening connective tissues
Because of the interactions that Ipamorelin has with the pituitary gland and the liver, scientific study based on animal test subjects has been able to link several theoretical benefits with the peptide’s presence. Most of these benefits relate to the notion of several elevated processes, such as a higher rate of burning through body fat, joint rejuvenation, an improvement of skin tone, an increase in the density of bone mass, and a strengthening of connective tissue.
