Ipamorelin is a pentapeptide and ghrelin mimetic with growth hormone releasing activity.
Ipamorelin imitates ghrelin and ties to the ghrelin receptor in the brain, thus selectively stimulating the release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland.
Growth hormones are frequently released and more abundant in children. When humans begin to age, the production of growth hormones decelerates and lessens gradually over time. Ipamorelin can encourage these growth hormones to be created and released regularly.
Ipamorelin is used to help increase growth hormone production, which can assist in the reduction of body fat, enhancement of lean muscle mass, improved sleep, and increased energy and overall wellness.
Ipamorelin is mainly used for collagen production, wrinkle reduction, acceleration of healing and recovery, and enhancement of mood and sleep; therefore, it is a peptide sought for its anti-ageing benefits.
