Hexarelin is a peptide which stimulates production of growth hormone. Hexarelin is analogues to GHRP-6, they have the same effects and dosages, so they may be regarded as synonyms. Originally they were used to treat deficiency of growth hormone.
Hexarelin is also similar to GHRP-2, with the exception that the latter is more powerful as to the GH production and besides it increases the level of prolactin and cortisol. They can be used together to produce synergetic effect and achieve maximum GH concentration.
There are many ways of hexarelin administration – subcutaneously, intramuscularly, under the tongue etc. The molecular size of this peptide is so small that it can penetrate through the vessels of oral cavity. However the best bioavailability is achieved by injections. When taken subcutaneously the level of GH increases in 30 minutes, and then after 6 hours it gradually drops to initial level.
The major effects of Hexarelin
- Increases muscle mass and strength
- Fat Burning
- Improves muscular relief
- Increases appetite
- Rejuvenating effect
- Improves immunity
- Bone strengthening
- Protects the liver
- Anti-inflammatory effect
Dosage and usage
The optimal dosage of Hexarelin is 1 μg/kg of body weight. The lower dosage has weaker effect, meanwhile higher dosage does not greatly increase the level of GH. For instance, the increase of the dosage from 100 to 200 μg will lead to only 25% increase of GH concentration, thus 100 μg is optimal dosage in bodybuilding. The compound is taken 3 times a day: after training, 15 minutes before meals and before going to bed.
During prolonged usage the effectiveness of the drug may drop, due to acquired tolerance. Therefore the length of the cycle should not exceed 4-8 weeks, and after the cycle one should make a 2-week gap. So if you don’t want to waste your money follow this schedule. However the problem of desensitization can be solved by stacking it with CJC-1295, which became very popular among bodybuilders.
You can increase effectiveness of Hexarelin by stacking it with other stimulators of growth hormone or anabolics. For instance CJC-1295 or GRF (1-29) can increase the effect of hexarelin several times. The combination of hexarelin with GHRP-2 is also very popular among bodybuilders.
