Check out this video with Dr. William Seeds, who is the president of the peptide society. Apparently MK-677 is known for being a sub-par alternative to HGH. It is known for causing a lot of bloat, water retention, lethargy and numbness in fingers, most likely due to the water retention/ bloat. Peptides like Ipamorelin, tesamorelin and CJC-1295 are the much preferred alternatives to HGH. They come with all the benefits, with very little to no sides, and are a good balance between efficacy and cost.

How much per month do those other growth hormone releasers cost? I was paying $160.00 per month for MK677 with all the negative sides..the pharmaceutical HGH was $260.00 a month for 1 IU a day with no sides and all the same benefits (they just took a bit longer to notice due to lower dose). The cost was a little more but my doctor is very conservative and it is the real thing..if you can afford it I would definitely recommend the real pharmaceutical grade HGH any day..why do you want to use it anyways?

My IGF-1 came back at 190, which imo is way too low. It’s been getting lower and lower over the years, and it’s just time to start improving my growth hormone levels.

According to Dr. Seeds, using GHRH analogues like CJC-1295 or Tesamorelin, along with GHRP’s like ipamorelin, are much healthier for you than injecting pharmaceutical grade HGH, and can yield the same results as HGH, if not better.

As far as pricing goes, I’m not sure. My appt with defy is next Tuesday, and I’ll find out how much Empower’s Ipamorelin is. Empower doesn’t offer CJC-1295 or Tesamorelin, so I’m going to see if defy can write a script to tailor made pharmacy where they have both, if I’m not mistaken. I might try calling tailor made to see if they’ll release their pricing for both peptides.
 
How old are you? I’m 55 and my IGF-1 was 130 prior to starting TRT (mid range for my age). After starting TRT it went up to 190 (top end for my range)..I then started HGH and it increased my IGF-1 to between 260-270..I feel pretty good at that number..my recovery and healing has been great along with the other benefits..it did take me about 5-6 months before I really started to notice the difference..it works great with my TRT..I’ve been on TRT just over a year now and HGH for about 7 months..I’m still seeing and feeling the changes in my body..there are no real studies at what levels IGF-1 should be at but my doctor who has been prescribing his patients HGH for about 10 years now has noticed for a cost/benefit ratio that his patients got the best bang for their buck when their IGF-1 levels were around 300..I’m pretty close at 270..my doctor says I will see slow changes on my low dose over the next 12-18 months..I don’t know about those other releasers but I’m happy with the real HGH..I hope it works out for you..keep this thread updated..I would love to know your results..

Thank you so much for that info! Very very helpful. HRT is so new. But the main thing that I’m realizing on my journey is that we have to optimize all hormones to be optimal, not just pick and choose which hormone imbalances to address. Testosterone is just one. It’s not more important than any of the others. They’re all equally as important to address. Just like the thyroid, growth hormone deficiencies are extremely underlooked, and have so many other benefits than the usual ones we all know about, including improvements with depression, anxiety, overall mood, etc. Anytime you improve sleep, everything is going to improve. But thank you for posting what you did about where you feel good in the range, and where your doctor likes people in the range. Extremely helpful. Makes sense. I would imagine it’s just like testosterone. Most guys would probably do well with their growth hormone levels near the top of the range, or a little above.

I’m 33, to answer your question. And I’ll aboslurely keep this thread and the forum updated once I’m on the peptides for a while. But make sure to watch the video above with Dr. Seeds. It seems like downregulating your own production of growth hormone with synthetic HGH might have some long term unwanted consequences, and it might be smarter to use peptides to encourage your body to produce more growth hormone on it’s own. Plus the peptides don’t downregulate your own production. But then again, if what you’re doing is working, may not be smart to mess with it. Either way, glad you’re doing well, and thank you very much for the info above. It was very helpful.

These are side effects that HGH also has. None of those peptides are more effective than HGH for fat loss. And most of the HGH induced weight gain is extracellular water. The only proven benefit of HGH has been reduction of visceral fat.

There’s something with the constant pulsing of GH that happens with MK-677 tho that is unnatural to the body and results in increased side effects. We’re not supposed to have a constant bleed of GH throughout the day. It’s supposed to be pulsed. That’s why peptides with DAC is a no no as well. It causes a bleed effect, which is not what u went when it comes to growth hormone

From lots of boards and lots of research (for whatever that's worth) it seems pretty clear to me that Ipamorelin with cjc (no dac) just before bed and maybe right after workout is the right way to go.

***What I can't figure out is why more people don't mix peptides. I'm super delicate with them, and it's way more convenient than drawing lots of syringes. I'm not reconstituting and storing my Ipamorelin, cjc w/o dac, bpc 157, and bp500 all in one vial. Measured super carefully and treated super gently/carefully. Anyone see an issue with that?***

For what it's worth, these 4 have been life-changing. There are good, seemingly reputable sources, not super expensive, and literally I heal so fast I can work the same body part hard like 24-48 hours later after a workout that should have left me sore for 4-5 days. Also bodyfat reduction, muscle increase, better sleep, better skin, better hair...I'm probably preaching to the choir.
