GHRP-2 is a synthetic hexapeptide Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP). Acting on the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland to release growth hormone with a slight stimulator effect on Prolactin, ACTH and Cortisol levels. GHRP2 has demonstrated that it is very effective at stimulating GH production in research test subjects. Thus, It has a short half life with peak concentrations occurring around 15 minutes and not longer than 60 minutes after administration.
Ghrelin, the recently identified peptide secreted by gastric endocrine cells (1), has attracted much interest for its dual effects. The growth hormone secretagogue receptor cloned in 1996 regulates growth hormone release. The circulating ghrelin is also implicated in meal to meal regulation.Ghrelin levels increase in anticipation of a meal (13) and are suppressed by food ingestion (13, 14), but the underlying mechanisms are not known. The meal-related suppression of ghrelin is proportional to the carbohydrate (CHO) content of the meal but does not appear to be directly related to glucose or insulin (14,15), although insulin administration decreases ghrelin.
