It should be noted right off the bat that GHRP-6 doses are often normally (and ideally) combined with doses of a GHRH analogue, such as Mod GRF 1-29 (CJC-1295 without DAC) due to the synergistic effects and compatibility between the two, as previously mentioned in this profile. With that being said, the proper GHRP-6 doses do not change whether or not it is utilized with a GHRH. If an effective GHRP-6 dose is 100mcg, for example, then 100mcg of GHRP-6 should be administered whether the user is utilizing it alone or with Mod GRF 1-29. The term/phrase “saturation dose” or “saturation doses” can be heard a lot when peptides are discussed. A saturation dose is defined as a dose that will completely (or near completely) saturate the peptide’s target receptors. In GHRP-6’s case, this means the Ghrelin receptors located on the hypothalamus and the anterior pituitary.
From the examination of many studies, the saturation GHRP-6 doses have been determined to be 1mcg per kg of body weight, and an average dose of approximately 100mcg without concern for bodyweight. That is to say that a 100mcg saturation dose of GHRP-6 will fully saturate receptors, and that 200mcg will only provide 50% additional effectiveness, and a 300mcg dose will provide only 25% additional effectiveness, and so on and so forth. This is very much the case with almost all GHRPs and GHRH analogues, as it seems to be the nature of these peptides.
One common concern when it comes to GHRP-6 doses (or the doses of any Ghrelin mimetic/GHRP) is the fact that it has been found to exhibit the ability to induce secretion of Cortisol and Prolactin. While many studies have indeed demonstrated this, they have also demonstrated that the Prolactin and Cortisol increases in most test subjects were not altered at all at GHRP-6 doses of 100mcg or less. GHRP-6 doses that are increased above 100mcg will exhibit increased Cortisol and Prolactin secretion, but minimally. As the dose is further increased, it stands to reason that the Cortisol and Prolactin secretions will increase as well.
GHRP-6 doses are measured in mcg (micrograms), and it is very important to make note of this distinction due to the fact that the common measurement of most other performance enhancing drugs is that of mg (milligrams). Synthetic Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is measured in iu (international units).
Expectations and Results from GHRP-6 Doses
Results and expectations from an HGH secretagogue such as GHRP-6 should be all of the same effects that any other form of Human Growth Hormone would provide. This includes fat loss, muscle mass increases, strength gains, healing and repair of joints and connective tissue, and a plethora of other benefits and changes. An important note to make is that the effects from any HGH application, whether it be an endogenous release from a GHRH or synthetic HGH administration, will all occur rather steadily over a longer period of use. Dramatic results within weeks are never to be expected, but with proper nutrition and training, dramatic performance and physique changes
