HGH Fragment (HGH Frag 176-191) is a peptide hormone of the Growth Hormone (GH) class. Specifically, HGH Frag 176-191 is as its name implies a fragment of the GH hormone, a piece or part of the GH hormone. Human Growth Hormone (HGH), the tail end of the hormone is cut off and what’s removed is HGH Frag 176-191. This is the part of HGH that represents its fat burning power. This will be the primary and perhaps only purpose of HGH Frag 176-191, for use in fat loss and dieting. The studies on HGH Frag 176-191 date back into the 1970’s and in the early 1980’s were confirmed in terms of the fragments ability to directly affect adipose tissue.
HGH Fragment 176-191 is the end of the 191-amino acid Human Growth Hormone molecular chain. GH is a hormone produced by the pituitary. HGH is the synthetic version produced in a lab; both are comprised of the same 191-amino acid chain. GH, in particular elevated levels through the use of HGH have long been associated with fat loss. They have also been associated with increases in muscularity, recovery and a host of health and anti-aging benefits. For HGH Frag 176-191, the concentration of action is only on the adipose fat cells, specifically by increasing lipolitic action.
HGH Frag 176-191 has been shown to be such an effective fat loss tool it actually inhibits the formation of lipids and fatty acids. Equally important, as it is only a portion of the full GH hormone, the issues of hyperglycemia often associated with HGH use are absent. This means there is no blood sugar issues as can occur at times with HGH.
There isn’t much to say about the effects of HGH Frag 176-191 other than to say it directly promotes fat loss. The individual’s metabolism runs stronger and the existing fat burns away faster. Is it a better option than regular HGH for this purpose? That’s a hard question to answer. Some data shows that it is a stronger or more suitable option. If fat loss is the only concern it does make sense to choose this fragment over the full form. If blood sugar issues are hard to control with HGH, again it makes sense to give the fragment a try. However, you’re also doing away with the almost innumerable benefits of HGH when you rely only on the fragment. Recovery, a stronger immune system, healing, and all the related anti-aging properties, on this basis alone HGH will always be the better option.
In terms of a fat loss agent, the effects of HGH Frag 176-191 will not include the appetite suppressant effect of many over the counter fat burners or stimulant based effects like Clenbuterol. The individual may find he runs a little warmer (slightly) but that should be about it.
HGH Frag 176-191 has no place in an off-season diet for the individual looking to pack on mass.
The most common side effect of HGH Frag 176-191 will be an irritation of the skin at the injection site. Injected areas may be slightly sore or itchy post injection. Changing or rotating the injections sites can help. Users may find certain areas of the body are more pleasing to administer the hormone than others. If severe pain occurs due to an injection, the user may want to question the purity of his product as this should not occur with quality HGH Frag 176-191.
The side effects of HGH Frag 176-191 should not include those commonly associated with HGH, such as swelling of the extremities. Headaches, while possible are highly unlikely, as is water retention or any type of edema commonly associated with HGH. Users should also not experience drops in blood sugar with this compound. HGH Frag 176-191 will not affect thyroid or testicular function and presents no issues of virilization with female use.
HGH Frag 176-191 is provided in lyophilized form (dry powder) and is reconstituted by the user with bacteriostatic water. The fragment is typically injected subcutaneously but can also be administered intramuscularly. Regardless of injection preference, all injections should occur on an empty stomach. Injecting with food in the stomach will weaken the effectiveness of the compound.
HGH Frag 176-191 can be administered 1-2 times per day with twice daily producing optimal results. If once per day, it should be taken 30-60min before breakfast. If twice per day, the second dose should be taken before bed and a few hours after the day’s last meal. 250-500mcg per day is the most common dosing range with 500mcg being the most common. 500mcg per day should produce significant fat loss in most any individual.
On the basis of fat loss, HGH Frag 176-191 is an excellent product. The downside is there’s a lot of garbage on the market, it won’t necessarily hurt you, but it may not help either. The other downside is this peptide fragment lacks all the other benefits of HGH. It is tempting to use for fat loss when we consider how much cheaper it is than HGH, but the user will find better long-term results if he were to save his money until he can afford HGH. But for those who have a difficult time with glycemic control, it starts to look more appealing.
For the performance athlete, the only time this compound makes sense is during a cutting phase. It’s a good option for a bodybuilder on a budget. How much fat will be lost will, however, be diet and genetically based, meaning individual genetic response will play a large role. Some users will get more out of HGH Frag 176-191 than others, as is the case with most hormones.
