Function: To stimulate GH secretion, appetite, and to gain weight
GHRP-2 is a synthetic agonist of ghrelin, the newly-discovered gut peptide which binds to the GH secretagogue receptor. Ghrelin has two major effects, stimulating both GH secretion and appetite/meal initiation. GHRP-2 has been extensively studied for its utility as a GHS. Since the test subjects body will end up producing more GH this way, fat will be reduced while lean muscle mass is increased. Along with this, IGF-1 levels will increase, as well, along with the different hypothalamus functions.
GHRP-2 basically acts exactly like ghrelin. It can induce food consumption just like ghrelin and stimulate GH secretion, too. When infused, GHRP-2 makes the GH levels in the body increase a lot and it can induce cell cAMP secretion the way that GRF tends to, as well.
GHRP-2 as a Growth Hormone Secretagogue
GHRP-2 has been studied extensively for its utility as a growth hormone secretagogue (GHS). Scientists have discovered that the Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2 increases the natural production of growth hormone (GH). In the early 90’s, one of the most famous studies was performed and later published in 1997 in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism. This study further exemplifies the theory that growth hormone releasing peptides (including Ipamorelin and GHRP-6) could help hormone deficient adults and children. Ever since these major scientific studies, GHRP-2 has been widely produced. With other scientific labs confirming the results from their studies, GHRP-2 can in fact work for those who lack the ability to make adequate human growth
