Human growth hormone (HGH) is a peptide hormone, meaning a long chain of amino acids. Or as the research shows, it has 191 amino acids. Peptide hormones work by sending instructions directly to human DNA, telling it to produce something more or other less and thus changing the way our body operates. This chain of 191 amino acids can be compared to a very complex keyword.
It is not uncommon for a single hormone to carry out multiple functions and HGH is not an exception. Thus, it promotes growth, burning of fats, strengthens bones or mineralization of body, and much more. Slowly, science is discovering that HGH is made up of many small sub-units with different functions. It means that one can use one a small fragment of HGH when its one kind of effect is needed, and another is not required. Using small fragments may also help get rid of side effects caused due to high doses of certain hormones.
Thus, as the name says, fragment 176-191 is just a part of HGH, consisting of few amino acids. This fragment will not work like complete growth hormone, but it can do some of its functions. Researchers have found that HGH Frag 176-191 controls the so-called fat-reducing effect of growth hormone.
This fragment of the hormone has an ability to regulate fat metabolism, but will not cause other side effects characteristic of growth hormone. It will not increase blood sugar levels, or cause ugly acromegaly (overgrowth of individual bones, thus worsening facial features), or cause undue stress on some internal organs. Frag 176-191, stimulates lipolysis (dissolving fat) and at the same time preventing the formation of new fat tissues. Unlike HGH, frag 176-191 does not increase appetite. This also helps prevent fat accumulation.
All this means that frag 176-191 can have quite a different use when compared to HGH. It can help burn belly fat, help fight obesity, reduce body weight, all this without the side effects characteristic of HGH. Such a compound can be especially useful for those with resistant pockets of fats.
Since it is only a fragment of HGH, it will not cause negative feedback and will not suppress natural production of growth hormone. In fact, this small fragment may even stimulate the production of growth hormone.
Many athletes use it due to its beneficial effect of fat metabolism, as it helps destroy unnecessary body fat, but without having a negative influence on the blood glucose levels. HGH frag 176-191 may also stimulate the production of insulin and generally has a positive anabolic effect. It means that it helps build muscles and at the same time it may help burn stubborn fat.
Apart from athletes, it can have a role in aesthetic medicine; it can help women get rid of ugly fat accumulations in certain parts of the body. Further, researchers think that it can be used to treat lipodystrophy, a medical condition characterized by the unusual accumulation of fat in certain parts of the body.
