The role of diet and nutrition in cervical carcinogenesis: Effect of folic acid supplementation on biochemical indices in overweight and obese men with type 2 diabetes. It causes intense hunger and gastic motility. It can have a mild effect on cortisol and prolactin.

It is a first generation GHRP. It can have an effect within the normal range on prolcatin and cortisol. It is a second generation peptide. Hexarelin is not sloppy like GHRP-2 it gives a higher GH pulse but has some Gastric motility although no issues with hunger, you have to cycle the use of this peptide to avoid desensitisation though. Ipamorelin is not sloppy at all. It does not release as much GH as GHRP-2 but it causes virtually no hunger or gastric motility and for the most part does not effect cortisol or prolactin.

It is a third generation peptide. If you are very sensitive to perturbations in cortisol or prolactin you would choose the more expensive Ipamorelin. What GHRH to use? CJC is the shortest at 5minutes this is destroyed by the body before it can do anything. Store the powder in the freezer if unmixed but once mixed with Bac water store in a fridge for best results life of product although can be stored in a cool place away from sunlight.

Before meal 1 PWO B4 Bed Make sure to leave hrs between jabs, results depend on frequency not dose so jabbing mcg 3 x daily will give better results than mcg once per day. Decision Matrix for you: Are you primarily trying to lose fat or gain muscle?

Can be injected IM or SubQ. Additions these are not required for good results and should be used by the advanced BB: Adding Insulin to peptides will give you the same type of results as adding it to GH.

What do I do? There will be zero GH release if somatostatin is around and only some if somatostatin is just starting up or just diminishing. Only if you are lucky to inject when somatostatin is gone will there be decent GH release. To overcome this, very large amounts say 2mg mcg are sometimes used. Choose a dosing schedule. If once a day do it pre-bed. If twice a day then do it pre-bed and post workout PWO. If three times a day do it pre-bed, PWO and in the morning. How many times can I dose before I lose pulsation?

Six 6 a day every 3 hours, How few times can I do it for some better sleep, small anti-aging effect? Then if that goes well go to full saturation dose.

If that goes well add a 2nd dosing, If that is fine add a third dosing.
