GHRP-2 is a short polypeptide containing only 6 amino acids. It belongs to the group of proteins that release growth hormone and can influence the G-protein receptor. Also known as KP-102, GHRP-2 is a hexapeptide and clinical research published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism in 1997 on Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2 showed medically supervised test subjects who had growth hormone deficiency had increased gH levels when prescribed and administered GHRP-2. GHRP-2 boosts the hypothalamus function and stimulates the pituitary gland to produce increased natural secretion of growth hormone.
GHRP-2 has a molecular mass of 817.97 and its molecular formula is C45H55N9O6. Being a synthesized version of GHRP-6, GHRP-2 can greatly stimulate the release or secretion of growth hormones and partially stimulate ACTH, cortisol, and PRL levels. This compound is known to increase calcium ion influx level and release more growth hormone. Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 2 (GHRP-2) has a short half-life. It can significantly raise IGF-1 levels and is being being researched for its anti-inflammatory effects in laboratory tests.
