Firstly, Ipamorelin (INN) (developmental code name NNC 26-0161) is a peptide selective agonist of the ghrelin/growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS) and a growth hormone secretagogue. The compound was initially synthesized by researchers at Novo Nordisk in the late 1990s to treat post-operative ileus, which is a condition characterized by prolonged abdominal pain and distension.
Nonetheless, the compound didn’t make it past Phase II clinical trials as a treatment for the condition. Instead, it has lived on thanks to its ability to stimulate the production of plasma growth hormone. For instance, it does this by binding to the growth hormone secretagogue receptor. This is a type of receptor in the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and other body parts.
How Ipamorelin works:
Like pralmorelin and GHRP-6, Ipamorelin does not affect prolactin, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), or thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. However, unlike pralmorelin (GHRP-2) and GHRP-6, but similarly to growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), Ipamorelin does not stimulate the secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) or cortisol, and is highly selective for inducing the secretion only of GH.
When Ipamorelin binds to this receptor, it stimulates growth hormone production. As a result, this potentially encourages the body to build muscle mass and burn fat.
