So, you got your heart broken, but she wasn’t so hot that you’re willing to try full on Steroids yet… Peptides should fit you perfectly, right? Wanna lose weight or achieve some muscle growth?
Using a Peptide Stack to gain muscle mass has become incredibly popular after people have been using these Peptides for their ability to burn body fat.
Which ones are going to be best though? And is it even worth it? How does a Growth Hormone Secretagogue work, and will she ever come back?
I have (some) of the answers.
What is the Best Peptide Stack?
Choosing the best Peptide stack is actually tricky seeing as there are various Peptides and various ways in which to combine them with one another.
Essentially, you have three categories for Peptide stacks: Muscle Growth, Fat Loss, and Recovery. And even in those, there will be overlap, seeing as one Peptide can cause both an increase in lipolysis and hypertrophy at the same time.
We will go into which ones are best for each application in a bit, however, most people will use Peptides for muscular growth and a better muscle structure. Thus, the best Peptide Stack for muscle growth would be:
- CJC-1295 (w DAC) – One of the original Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones that will increase Growth Hormone production by binding to the growth-hormone-releasing hormone receptor (GHRHR) 
- Ipamorelin – Ipamorelin will simply lower Growth Hormone-inhibiting Hormone (GHIH). GHIH caps the amount of Growth Hormone a person can produce, thus lowering those levels of IGF-1 that can lead to more muscle tissue and muscle strength gains 
- GHRP-2 – GHRP-2 will work similarly to Ipamorelin in inhibiting GHIH, but will also stimulate hunger by a much larger measure 
- [Bonus] IGF-1 DES: The reason Growth Hormone and Growth Hormone Secretagogues are used in sports, is because they will stimulate the release of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor 1) into the body, which can result in more hypertrophy, so why not take pure IGF-1 that has been made more potent (DES) 
How Do Peptides Work?
If you haven’t learnt by now, there are multiple Peptides. Some are amazing at increasing muscular growth while some will only be good at burning fat. Some will even only be used for muscle endurance.
The mechanism in which the Peptide works, depends on which Peptide you end up using. For instance, a GHRH (such as CJC 1295) will interact with Growth Hormone Secretagogue receptors and cause an increase in HGH production.
Some Peptides that are more commonly used like Creatine, which will increase Creatine phosphate levels in the body. More Creatine phosphate means more explosive power and strength. Other Peptides will be used from a health perspective as they can decrease Cholesterol levels.
The human body reacts to various Peptides and other research chemicals, and each Peptide will interact differently. Compared to a “best Steroid stack”, Peptides are far less likely to cause side effects.
What Peptides can I stack?
Stacking Peptides is incredibly common. It is so common, in fact, that companies now release Peptides that are already pre-mixed. Overall, they will have similar goals between them, such as weight loss or muscle gain. To stack Peptides, follow these rules:
1) Pay attention to side effects
Do not use Peptides that will cause the same type of side effects. For instance, using two Peptides that’ll raise blood sugar levels could be bad.
2) Have a clear goal
Once you have a clear goal (weight loss, muscle growth, or recovery) then you can decide which Peptides to stack with one another.
That said, here are some very common Peptides to stack with one another:
1) GHRH + GHRP
2) GHRH + GHRP + IGF
3) GHRH + GHRP + HGH Frag
4) GHRH + GHRP + HGH Frag + Melanotan
These are some common stacks, but since there are about 100 different Peptides, it can be hard to list them all. If you are looking to stack Peptides but you are unsure, you can use the option “Get a Coach” on the top of your screen, and I’ll help you.
Another thing to consider is that Peptides can be used for more than just muscle strength gains and body composition changes. They are wildly effective for muscle recovery and reducing muscle soreness.
Anti Aging Peptide Stack
Using Peptides for their Anti Aging properties has become massively popular. We know that the big one, HGH, definitely has an effect on skin and hair quality. Some may even be useful for relieving pains.
The reason for this is that GH plays an extremely important role for cell regeneration and construction. IGF-1 (which increases as Growth Hormones do) is also extremely good for hair health.
The best Peptides for Anti Aging would be CJC 1295, Sermorelin, and even something like IGF-1 DES. The last is often associated with muscle building, and that is exactly why I believe it’d work. Lean tissue is one of the best things you could have to combat aging.
Are Peptides Legal?
Peptides fall under the term of Research Chemicals and therefore may only be sold as a “research chemical”. They cannot be sold for human consumption, and they are illegal in tested sports.
Some Peptides can be obtained through an Online Peptide Clinic like Marek Health, where you will have professional medical advice. These are mostly Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides that will simply increase the amount of Growth produced by your Pituitary gland.
What is the Best Peptide for Muscle Mass?
There is no “best” in science, unfortunately. There is a “best” for you in your situation, however, with muscle growth as the main goal, you’re looking at using IGF-1 DES as the best one. The best one that will also be cost-effective would be a combination of GHRH and GHRP. One thing to remember is these muscle compounds are not as strong as a steroid stack.
How does Growth Hormone cause Fat Loss?
Growth Hormone is the main Peptide everyone wants to use for fat loss, and if you want to lose fat, there are very few Peptides that’ll do a better job. Growth Hormone causes fat loss by increasing Lipase levels in the body, which will release Free Fatty Acids (FFA) from fat cells.
These FFA can then be used as energy by the mitochondria and is even more effective when used before fasted cardio.
Is MK 677 better than Ipamorelin?
MK 677 is known as a Growth Hormone secretagogue and will increase the natural amount of Growth Hormone release. This can be used, just like Peptides, for weight loss, or for lean mass gain. Both of these are effective, however, MK 677 seems to be better in regards to aiding in sleep.
Which is better GHRP 2 or GHRP 6?
Both are good Peptides, and both will have similar effects in regards to helping you build a better muscle structure. That said, GHRP 6 is going to have a much greater impact on hunger which in turn can help you gain muscle.
Do Peptides increase Testosterone?
While Peptides are somewhat effective for muscle growth, most people will know Testosterone has greater muscle building capabilities. Some Peptides can increase Testosterone levels slightly, however, not a massive amount.
