As we get older, we do not stop producing growth hormone (GH), but, in fact, we just do not produce as much as we did when we were growing up. The male body has selected times during the day when the body is ready to release some of the stored growth hormone. Interestingly, the most powerful GH release comes when we sleep (this is why it is important to sleep like a baby). If you are concerned with building muscle, then you know that sleeping and eating are two of the most important factors that you need to keep growing.
Hunger and Ghrelin
Food intake is where GHRP-6 is going to outshine other GHRP peptides. This is mainly due to the fact that GHRP-6 is known to drastically increase hunger, which normally occurs within an hour after injection. The extreme hunger has been linked to the increase of ghrelin within the stomach. Ghrelin is a hormone that is produced by cells in the stomach that are released due to the stomach being empty or if the stomach thinks it is empty. Ghrelin not only aids in stimulating GH release, but it also helps regulate appetite, promote fat loss in muscle tissues and helps in healing damaged tendons. Studies suggest that elevated levels of ghrelin in the stomach have been shown to have a direct link with fast healing of damaged tissues. This is why GHRP-6 may be a better option for healing than the newer modified version GHRP-2. GHRP-2 works the same as GHRP-6 but the extreme hunger side effect is not as severe.
