While it may not have the hashtag swagger that has growth hormone hogging the supplement limelight, its high-tech cousin ghrp 6 might offer even more benefits. The hexapeptide is renowned for its ability to increase muscle mass and endurance, but it also has the potential to boost collagen levels and improve sleep quality for those who struggle with poor rest. It is known to help speed up healing and reduce inflammation, which means it could be used to recover from injuries more quickly.
While there is still much work to be done in terms of deciphering the wizardry behind GHRP molecular cytoprotective mechanisms, early research has hinted at some promising findings. For example, the peptide can prevent stress-induced mucosal damage by inhibiting both the inflammatory response via Akt activation and the magnitude of the proinflammatory reaction by directly interfering with the secretion of inflammatory mediators such as leukotrienes and myeloperoxidase.
Furthermore, the hexapeptide has been shown to protect heart tissue by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. In particular, the peptide was found to decrease LV dysfunction and fibrosis by preventing the oxidation of heparin. It also reduced myocardial infarct size and ventricular fibrosis by lowering the levels of apoptosis and oxidative stress.
In addition, the hexapeptide was found to have a preventative effect in a rat model of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) induced by doxorubicin. Concomitant GHRP-6 peptide administration completely prevented cardiac function failure, evaluated as a percentage of ejection fraction by echocardiography.
