GHRP-2(Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2) has a similar effect on the body with GHRP-6. Since they are in the same class of compounds called Growth Hormone Secretagogues. GHRP-2 is primarily used to increase food taken by making its user feel hungry. Medically it is used for the treatment of GH (Growth Hormone) deficiency in addition to such diseases like obesity, cachexia.
The major side effect of Peptide GHRP-2 is a remarkable increase in appetite because of stimulating the release of Ghrelin (about 20 minutes post injection), which is a hormone excreted naturally in the lining of the stomach making the person feel hungry. This is why GHRP-6 can be used in the treatment of cachexia (wasting), eating disorders and obesity.
