Hexarelin, a powerful GH-releasing peptide, is one of the most admired drugs when it comes to stimulating the release of growth hormone (GH).

Hexarelin has the chemical name of L-Histidyl-2-methyl-D-tryptophyl-L-alanyl-L-tryptophyl-D-phenylalanyl-L-lysinamide; {HIS}{D-2-ME-TRP}{ALA}{TRP}{d-PHE}{LYS}-NH2 and the molecular formula of C47H58N12O6.

The peptide, Hexarelin, is superior to GHRH and GHRP-6 in stimulating GH release and can easily stimulate the secretion of GH, ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone), cortisol, and prolactin during sleep. The seven-amino acid peptide is considered more effective and long lasting than GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) and a potent GH releasing peptide combination is experienced when Hexarelin is combined with GHRP-6 (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide–6) compared to pairing of GHRH with GHRP-6. The combination (Hexarelin and GHRP-6) is associated with dramatic enhancements in terms of circulating IGF-1 concentrations in addition to improvements in the terms of serum IGF-1, IGF-binding protein-3 concentrations, and promotion of linear growth. Hexarelin is also beneficial in reestablishing the levels of Insulin-like development factor-I and growth hormones.

One of the biggest reasons why Hexarelin is popular among professional sportsmen is because this performance enhancing drug has the unique potential of promoting growth of new muscle fibers, increase body strength, and increase size of existing muscle fibers. In addition to these advantages, Hexarelin is also useful in promoting neural protection, joint rejuvenation, protection and healing, and fat reduction. It is also beneficial when used with growth hormone and IGF as Hexarelin restores the natural levels of hormones, such as testosterone, which may have been negatively affected by IGF and GH use.

The recommended dosage of Hexarelin is 200 mcg per day when used via subcutaneous injections and should be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) to maintain its efficacy and shelf life.
