How It Works: Growth Hormone Peptide Family


 Here is a quick overview of the 4 primary Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides most commonly used i athleti pursuits today. This is meant as a means to determine what might be the best and most appropriate application for your individual research needs.



How It Works: Insulin Growth Factors



IGF stands for insulin-like growth factor. It is a natural substance that is produced in the human body and is at its highest natural levels during puberty. During puberty IGF is the most responsible for the natural muscle growth that occurs during these few years. There are many different things that IGF does in the human body; I will only mention the points that would be important for physical enhancement. Among the effects the most positive are increased amino acid transport to cells, increased glucose transport, increased protein synthesis, decreased protein degradation, and increased RNA synthesis.


Is HCG a thing of the past? HMG vs. HCG



For decades BB’rs have been using HCG both on-cycle and off-cycle to prevent testicular atrophy, as well as help re-grow the testes prior to commencing PCT. HCG, known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, accomplishes this function by mimicking the actions of LH (leutinizing hormone) within the body, which is the hormone responsible for stimulating testosterone production. Aside from the obvious cosmetic benefits associated with testicular maintenance, retaining function of the testes helps set the stage for a more rapid post-cycle recovery by retaining the organ’s ability to respond optimally to circulating LH.


How it Works: GHRP-2 Analogue



Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP-2) is a synthetic ghrelin analogue. Like ghrelin, it stimulates release of endogenous growth hormone from somatotropes in the anterior pituitary; also like ghrelin, it is synergistic with endogenous growth hormone releasing-hormone (GHRH) as well as with synthetic GHRH analogues such as Sermorelin or GRF(1-29).  Whereas GHRP-2 and other ghrelin analogues increase the number of somatotropes involved in the GH pulse by inhibiting somatostatin, GHRH increases the pulse amplitude per pituitary cell or somatotrope by other means. Unlike ghrelin, GHRP is not lipogenic meaning it does not induce fat storage. While ghrelin has a very important role in hunger, GHRP-2 as an analog of ghrelin does not increase appetite significantly.


How it Works: DAC Conjugated CJC 1295




DAC conjugated CJC 1295 is an hGH secretogue that is unique by way of an additional lysine molecule that is added to facilitate the DAC complex. This conjugation makes for a much longer half-life. CJC 1295 DAC is a exceptionally designed peptide and is known for being the finest of the hGH secretogues.


Survey Asks: How Does Tadalafil Work?



Medical testing has shown that Cialis is effective in 60%-80% of cases when used to treat erectile dysfunction in subjects. Most failure cases are from subjects that have had some form of surgery that made getting or maintaining an erection physically impossible. Tadalafil produces results similar to Viagra, but the effects of Tadalafil last longer than Viagra. In addition, Tadalafil can be taken on an empty stomach or with a meal. When Tadalafil and Viagra were compared in a study Tadalafil allowed for more sexual frequency and that in turn raised Testosterone levels higher in the Cialis group.


Osteoporosis Drug The Next Great Bodybuilding Tool? Destroys Estrogen Receptors!



A drug approved in Europe to treat osteoporosis has now been shown to stop the growth of breast cancer cells, even in cancers that have become resistant to current targeted therapies, according to a Duke Cancer Institute study.

The findings, presented June 15, 2013, at the annual Endocrine Society meeting in San Francisco, indicate that the drug bazedoxifene packs a powerful one-two punch that not only prevents estrogen from fueling breast cancer cell growth, but also flags the estrogen receptor for destruction.


Male Birth Control? Closer Than You Might Think



Alexander Fleming's accidental discovery of penicillin was one of the most important—and fortunate—mistakes of the 20th century. Nearly 100 years later, James Bradner thinks he and his colleagues may have stumbled on something that could be similarly world-changing: A molecule that could lead to the world's first effective male birth control pill, which could be ready for human testing within a year.


Drug Expiration Dates: Food For Thought



With a splitting headache you reach into your medicine cabinet for some aspirin only to find the stamped expiration date on the bottle has passed - two years ago. So, do you take it or don't you? If you decide to take the aspirin will it be a fatal mistake or will you simply continue to suffer from the headache? This is a dilemma many people face in some way or another. A column published in Pyschopharmacology Today offers some advice.

It turns out that the expiration date on a drug does stand for something, but probably not what you think it does. Since a law was passed in 1979, drug manufacturers are required to stamp an expiration date on their products. This is the date at which the manufacturer can still guarantee the full potency and safety of the drug.


Trenabol- No Cough Tren

Unlike any other prohormone that has come before it, Trenabol occupies a very unique place in the prohormone world, as it is the first to convert to the highly regarded Trenbolone. No small feat and not to be minimized, I would be lying if I told you that this hasn’t been attempted before. In fact, the number of companies which have tried to cash in on this proposition stretches way back to the industry’s infancy, when VPX was the first to try and produce a Trenbolone PH over 10 years ago.


Jelfa Omnadren 250




Testosterone is by far my favorite steroid because it's safe, comfortable, elicits rapid mass and strength gains while maintaining libido, a sense of well-being and energy. I recommend Testosterone as the base of almost every cycle. It's not uncommon for a first time user to gain 15-20lbs of LBM in a standard Testosterone cycle. Testosterone comes in many estered and non estered preparations. Additionally Testosterone comes in a wide variety of pharmacy grade and underground lab blends. Jelfa Omnadren 250 from M4BTEAM is a high quality oil based four component pharmaceutical grade Testosterone blend.




arimidex-anastrozole-300x199Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor used to lower circulating estrogen. It was developed to help fight breast cancer as estrogen plays a role in the growth of cancer cells. Arimidex binds reversibly to the aromatase enzyme through competitive inhibition. This suppresses the conversion of androgens into estrogen. Circulating plasma estrogen can be reduced by nearly 85% in women using Arimidex. A common misconception is that aromatase inhibition is similar in men than women.





Testosterone Suspension and Testosterone Base

testosterone-suspension-aquavironTestosterone is the undisputed king of steroids mainly because it is safe, elicits rapid mass and strength gains while maintaining libido, a sense of well being and energy. It’s not uncommon for a first time user to gain 15-20lbs of LBM in a standard Testosterone cycle. Pure Testosterone comes in a water based aqueous form (Suspension) and also in a solvent/oil based form (Test Base).


Is your Growth Hormone real? A guide to find out

hygetropinHGH is expensive and often faked so about 1 year ago I began testing HGH using HGH serum and IGF-1 testing via blood work. During this period of time the real world experience of testing HGH led me down an exciting road of research and learning. It is my hope to share my experiences and the science behind HGH testing so that HGH users may know for sure that the products they are injecting are genuine.


Tren Cough Explained

I was recently asked "What do you think is the contributing issue with Tren cough immediately after injection? What do you think are some ways to help avoid the issue from surfacing in the first place?"Over the years I have read various theories from prostaglandin metabolization to pulmonary oil microembolism. I imagine that the causes of "Tren Cough" are varied and it's not always just because of one thing.


Osta Rx SARM Profile

IOstartinemagine a compound that elicits steroid like muscle building effects with little or no androgenic side effects, a compound that packs on lean body mass while lowering body fat in individuals who don't even weight train, a compound that is safe to use for months and may even be used by females because it does not cause females to develop male sex characteristics, a compound that makes you feel good, improves sleep, increases libido and changes body composition positively. Well, we don't need to imagine this compound because Osta rx possesses these traits and is a present day reality.


Welcome HeavyIron To The RxMuscle Team

292181 109563492517292 612672016 nPart of my vision for Rx Muscle, as Editor-In-Chief, is to expand the Chemical Enhancement portion of the site. Starting in December you will see new groundbreaking articles, a lab testing forum, and much more. With the expansion comes new leadership, and that leadership will come in the form of John Conner (AKA HeavyIron).

If you haven’t heard or seen the handle, HeavyIron, then you probably are new to this bodybuilding thing... Or you’re natural! John started posting on the message boards looking to communicate with like minded individuals, and over the past few years he has become one of the most widely respected chemical enhancement experts. I also have the good fortune of working with John at IronMagLabs, so I know that when he sets his mind to something, there is no stopping him.

553934 146147962192178 1622748569 nWhen I spoke to John about the position, he immediately had ideas on how to make the site better and what he’d like to bring to the revamped site. Along with writing articles himself, he is forming a team of individuals to bring the members the newest and most cutting edge information. John’s plans extend to the forum, and not only the content and discussion there, but also the moderation. He favors a looser style of moderation and more edgy discussion, and we plan to leave that completely up to John’s discretion.

With John at the helm, it is our goal to not only have Rx Muscle the premier site for contest coverage, but also the premier site for Chemical Enhancement.

Building Muscle & Losing Fat with SARMs!

Ostartine I must get at least five emails every day asking me how to maximize muscle gains while minimizing side effects associated with the enhancement process. I use the term “process” to describe the whatever-it-takes attitude that most ultra-determined men and women have when it comes to adding new lean muscle tissue to their physiques.


A Womans Guide to Chemical Enhancement



This article was written by one of RxMuscle's most respected female Forum Administrators who is an accomplished bodybuilder and veteran of Online Fitness Community. I am republishing this now to try and get the word out to so many women who come to our site seeking help from other womae about what drugs they can take and what drugs they shouldn't take. I will say this loud and clear: Always check with someone knowledgable about PED use with women or a traienr who has SUCCESSFULLY trained women before subjecting yourself to potential long term consequences you may have never thought of. Just because it worked "for your boyfriend or husband" does not mean it will work the same for you. Please use safely and educated.

This article covers the spectrum of most major chemicals used by athletes around the world. Sassy covers AAS, GH, Fat Burners, Non-Stimulant Fat Burners, Thyroid meds, Birth Control and more.

ThymosinBeta 4 Reduces Injury Recovery Time


ThymosinBeta 4 in layman’s terms means repair and recovery faster than ever imaginable. Originally developed for repair and recovery in equine racing, the application soon reached the bovine world in the form of rodeo competition and shortly thereafter, humans began “researching” the product in human tissue repair and regeneration.  Scientifically, there is no human research available as it is not available for human use. Anecdotally however, citations and observations by experienced chemically enhanced athletes around the world are singing its praises.


IGF-1: The Holy Grail for Muscle Growth?

IGF-250x250IGF-1, as the name implies, is an extremely anabolic hormone that has insulin-like actions (i.e. it shuttles nutrients, specifically amino acids and glucose, into the muscle cells where they can then be synthesized into new muscle tissue).
