Gonadorelin HCL vs. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) December 30, 2020

Gonadorelin HCL vs. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)

What is Gonadorelin? Gonadorelin is a peptide and bioidentical to gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) that is naturally released from the hypothalamus gland. GnRH causes the pituitary gland to release other hormones (luteinizing hormone [LH] and follicle-stimulating hormone [FSH]), which stimulates the testes to produce testosterone and sperm. Why Gonadorelin instead of the hCG? Gonadorelin works as an alternative to hCG, and studies show that GnRHs are just

Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide (DSIP)

Delta-Sleep-Inducing Peptide (DSIP) was first proposed as a sleep-peptide and this remains the prevalent impression of its function. Since normal people spend about one-third of their lifetime sleeping (about 25 years), it is rather surprising that the phenomenon of sleep and its purpose, which is still in question, has been long overlooked as a topic of scientific interest. A decisive step forward was made between

Kisspeptin: an alternative to hCG

Kisspeptins (formerly known as metastin) are peptides encoded by KISS1. The gene was first discovered in 1996, in Hershey, PA, USA, and was subsequently named after Hershey’s chocolate kisses. The peptide product of KISS1 is a 145 amino acid peptide that is cleaved into four shorter peptides: kisspeptin-54, kisspeptin-14, kisspeptin-13, and kisspeptin-10 (the numbers denote how many amino acids in each). All these isoforms activate the

Hormonal Imbalance: Symptoms, Causes, and testing

There are lots of different hormonal imbalances because there are lots of different hormones, but millions of people suffer from some type of imbalance of these hormones and even the smallest amount of imbalances can affect how we feel drastically. We can evaluate imbalances in three hormonal systems that tend to communicate with each other the most: Adrenal Hormones (stress hormones)Sex Hormones (testosterone or estrogen,
