Hi All. long time no post
To recap, I have stabilized my TRT with 37.5 mg of Test Cyp and 250 IU of hcg 3/week and have found myself to be stable. I am also applying a circadian method to supplementing with T3 to clear out RT3 which has been raised due to yo-yo dieting, fasting, stresses etc
I do "feel" that there is a component missing though. At my age (43) also taking into account my medical history I sincerely feel that I can do with a GH boost.
To be clear, I am not (yet) looking at pinning synthetic GH just yet, but rather looking to see if I can "encourage" my own body to increase its' own production of GH by making use of peptides. much like the way I tried to jumpstart my own endogenous T production...
As usual with research on the interweb, many things are repeated, ad nauseam and most posts are "copies & pastes" of each other, with many of them containing a modicum of truth.
So, I thought I would post my suggested protocol here as this is the spot where I received the most unbiased, honest & truthful help from some very knowledgeable persons.
My idea is to try and assist my body with production of its own GH, so, I will be looking at pinning with the peptides twice a day. I also realise that stimulating the hypothalamus and the pituitary for a prolonged period could be detrimental so I am aiming for a 6 month trial on, 6 months off and to then re-evaluate.
I have decided on using:
1) CJC 1295 w/o DAC (chosen this as opposed to with DAC as the half life of w/o DAC matches circadian rhythm more closely)
2) GHRP-2 (Chosen this as opposed to GHRP-6 in order to avoid appetite stimulation)
According to studies, using either of these peptides on their own would result in higher levels of endogenous GH, but using them both together results in a synergy between them that produces much higher levels and stronger pulses. Not to mention that a GHRP is supposed to lower some sort of a GH releasing antagonist....
I understand that the saturation dose (even though the receptors clear very quickly and the half life of the two chosen peptides are very short) is 100 mcg each
Given the above my dosing protocol is 100mcg each upon waking and a further 100 mcg each before retiring for the night.
My goal with this is not anabolism (apparently, a 3rd dose/day preferably post workout helps to eventually bring about anabolism) but rather rejuvenation and "anti-aging"
I have access to peptides that are 97%+ purity and at reasonable prices to boot. So, I am thinking that the above is a solid protocol.
This is of course if my pituitary is up to the job, I am primary hypo-gonadal after all...if this experiment fails to produce verifiable results then I will consider Jintropin...
How does the above sound to you? Feasible? Or no?
