(Please NOTE: It is normal for FRAGMENT (176-191) to mix cloudy after reconstitution with bacteriostatic water.)
Fragment (176-191) is a fat-loss peptide derived from the GH molecule, which directly initiates lipolysis and inhibits lipogenesis, but in order to better understand this peptide, it is imperative to have at least a rudimentary understanding of its parent hormone, GH. Growth hormone is a polypeptide which contains an amino acid sequence that is 191 amino acids in length. Frag (176-191) was developed by isolating and modifying the specific portion of the GH molecule responsible for the hormone’s lipolytic and anti-lipogenic effects. The portion of the molecule responsible for these effects is amino acids #176-191. In every sense, Frag should primarily be considered a fat loss peptide which performs these functions through the same pathways as traditional GH, but without exposing the user to the potentially undesirable side effects which may present themselves during GH administration.
Unlike GH, Frag (176-191) has no effect on insulin sensitivity and therefore, will not contribute to insulin resistance. This is a noteworthy benefit, particularly for those individuals who exhibit impaired insulin sensitivity, yet still wish to experience the fat loss benefits that GH has to offer without further contributing to insulin resistance. IGF-1 levels also remain unaffected by Frag.
Common benefits of Frag (176-191) include:
* An increased rate of lipolysis.
* Inhibition of lipogenesis
Common side effects of Frag (176-191) include:
* Frag (176-191) does not display any of the side effects commonly associated with growth hormone usage. This is largely due to the peptide containing an abbreviated portion of the GH molecule, so the potential for side effects is minimal.
Recommendations for use:
* Frag (176-191) works best when blood sugar levels are minimized and physical activity is engaged in post-administration. Since the usage of this peptide facilitates the immediate liberation of fatty acids into the bloodstream, fat loss will occur at a more rapid rate if these fatty acids are oxidized (burned off as energy), as this will prevent them for being redeposited back into the fat cells. If the individual wants to maximize the body’s ability to burn off these newly released fatty acids for energy production, one should temporarily minimize the availability of glucose, as it is the body’s preferred energy. This is achieved through dietary management and proper peptide timing.
Frag has been used in a variety of ways since its release, but not all methods garner satisfactory results. There is no specific period of time over which Frag should be used (cycle length), although using small doses on an infrequent basis is not likely to result in an acceptable rate of fat loss. Most users prefer to inject Frag multiple times per day over a shorter period of time, in order to experience more rapid results. Regardless of frequency of use, the user should take into consideration blood sugar levels and physical activity prior to each inject. While blood sugar is relatively easy to manage, we do not always have the luxury of engaging in a cardio session post-inject. In terms of physical activity, I recommend doing your best to engage in some type of physical activity, if possible, after an injection.
One option for utilizing this peptide would be to use 1000 mcg per day, over a period of one week. The total daily dosage should be broken up into several smaller dosages throughout the day. The following is one example of how an individual might implement Frag into their routine.
7 Day Example Cycle:
Dose #1: 350 mcg before breakfast, followed by cardiovascular exercise about 20-30 minutes later. *Note: If one is worried about losing muscle tissue while performing fasted cardio, then one can consume a combination of EAA’s w/extra Leucine…or a carb-free protein shake prior to performing cardio. Amino acids are ideal, as they result in the smallest increase in blood sugar. All foods which lead to significantly increased blood sugar levels should be avoided.
Dose #2: 350 mcg Pre-workout. This dose is taken about 20-30 minutes before your daily weight training session and/or cardio session. About 3 hours prior to training, one should begin relying primarily on protein foods (preferably whole protein foods and/or amino acids) as a main source of energy, so that blood glucose levels are minimized by the time the Frag is administered. After weight training is complete, the user can consume as many carbs as necessary in order to satisfy metabolic requirements.
Dose #3: 300 mcg towards the end of the day. Again, the same rules regarding blood sugar apply. While most will not want to perform physical activity a 3rd time during the same day, doing so will lead to greater results. *Note: While some of the recommended guidelines are not ideal for maximizing weight training performance (ex: minimizing carbs pre-workout), these guidelines are only temporary; to be used during the week Frag is implemented into your routine. Since priorities should shift from muscle growth to fat loss during Frag administration, these guidelines are reasonable and desirable. After Frag is discontinued, one can resume their normal routine.
