HGH Fragment 176-191


I was browsing through some internet chemical research products and came across this. I don't plan on using, or purchasing any of these products, but what I read in the description seemed like it may be an interesting means of fat loss. Any more info about this stuff from the experts?

"The HGH Fragment is a modified form (Figure 1) of amino acids 176-191 at the C-terminal region of growth hormone.

Investigators at Monash University discovered that the fat-reducing effects of GH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the GH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 176-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the GH molecule and appears to have no effect on growth or insulin resistance. It works by mimicking the way natural hGH regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with unmodified hGH. Like unmodified GH, the HGH fragment 176-191 stimulates lipolysis and inhibits lipogenesis both in laboratory testing and in animals and humans. The HGH fragment does not appear to affect appetite.

In laboratory tests on fat cells from rodents, pigs, dogs, and humans, the HGH fragment released fat specifically from obese fat cells but not from lean ones, reduced new fat accumulation in all fat cells, enhanced the burning of fat. In rodents (rats and mice), HGH fragment reduced body fat in obese animals but, enhanced fat burning without changing food consumption or inducing growth (as it does not increase IGF levels) or any other unwanted hGH effect."


Anybody out there have experience with this peptide?


Somebody has to have heard of it? Bushi, schwarz, contrl? If it works like it says it does it sounds like it would be a very nice fat burning tool and actually help keep the fat off during a bulk phase.


Found this while looking some stuff up...scroll down about 1-2 paragraphs to where it talks about fragment 176-191...it first talks about 177-191



Ive heard of it. Im very sceptical of the claims that it produces the same results as hgh. considering the cheap price.


Just tried some for fat loss works better than hgh on mg basis, makes since though the AA chain is about 7% of the full hgh molecule and if this is really the active site so to speak it would mean you are getting quite a bit more of the active component per mg.

used about 800mg a day, coulod feel something within 30 min of fisrt injection wouldn't know how to describe the feeling,

One note, burns quite a bit more than hgh injecting.

Plus it is still research grade so not illegal to order.


Could you elaborate your experiences a bit more for us?
