OK so GHK-Cu is weird. Yesterday I injected 2mg subQ, can't really say if I noticed much, but this morning I injected 4mg subQ and like all my inflammation disappeared. This 4mg was stronger than the highest ibuprofen dose I've ever taken regarding inflammation reduction. (like 1.2 grams ibuprofen). About an hour later I worked out and I've had the strongest pump/soreness I've ever had regarding lifting. Also I'm in a ridiculously good mood and don't feel sluggish mentally (probably because of CNS inflammation reduction?)
I'm curious weather these effects will last after the full vial or if this is only while it's in my blood stream. Cause if it's only while it's in my blood stream I think that price tag isn't too bad cause I feel fan-f**king-tastic.
Comment - Below is my favorite GHK story. If it were possible, I wonder if GHK-Cu would help terminally ill people in hospice care.
I originally bought GHK-cu (copper peptide) for my skin, and possibly to help with my husband's joint inflammation. It worked for both, but this is another post. I have a 16-year-old Jack Russel, Dachshund mix. For the last two years, she's been wheezing. Apparently she has an enlarged heart which is pushing on her lungs. She was still very much enjoying her life, so, we've kept her happy and decided that if she began to suffer, we would do something. Well, late one night about a week ago, the wheezing got terrible, she was struggling. Gasping for air, lethargic, dull eyes. We love her dearly but firmly decided that if she was still bad in the morning, we'd take her to the vet and do whatever had to be done. I cried. Then, just on the off-chance that it might help her, I drew up a 2.5 mg SubQ syringe of GHK-cu. I pinched some skin on her neck, and administered. She didn't even feel it. The next morning, this dog was, I don't know how to say it any other way, rejuvenated: about five years younger (15-20 in dog years.) The wheezing had all but stopped, eyes bright, running around, tail wagging. I concluded that the Copper Peptide may have reduced the swollen heart. I'm sure many of you will say there's no way one dose could have that effect. But I have no other explanation for it. I am not planning to do it regularly. My idea was alleviate her suffering, that was all. But she got so much healthier. I will give her the copper again if she shows signs of degrading.
Since the post above, we have given the same dog one more GHK-cu injection as well as one small BPC-157 injection. I have also put a small amount of Epitalon in special doggy eye drops, which is a way of getting some in her body and bypassing the gastrointestinal system. Our dog, nearly 17 yrs old, is now running short distances (whereas before she walked very slowly and tired after 20 or so yards). Overall, she is walking more than a half mile before showing signs of slowing down; her vision has improved dramatically, and she sleeps without wheezing. The only difference in her care has been peptides. One small, happy mutt does not a scientific study make, but I feel these results are worth putting out there. Maybe someone who has tried everything might be helped. Who knows? Good wishes to all. PS I have also added peptides to human eye drops, which I keep refrigerated. This is probably not going to deliver a big dose to the system, but I feel it helps.
Yes, It's great. Potent anti-inflammatory, great for post workout recovery, and really does speed up the healing process. I've had a couple bumps and scrapes from a hike and it healed them up remarkably fast. I don't perceive any mental or nootropic benefits when dosing subq, but that doesn't mean it isn't doing something special sub-perceptibly. The research behind it makes it sound like the fountain of youth.
I wasn't sure where to post this. It's not really a nootropic-related report but I thought people would be interested in these results.
My dog is 11-years-old and in great shape for her age. Her only identifiable age-related issue is bare spots at her elbows on her front legs. She's had them for at least 5 years now (the bare spots, not the legs; those are OEM).
I ordered some GHK-Cu to try it out and I thought "What the hell? Let's see if this will do something for her." I mixed 20 mg of the reconstituted GHK-Cu into 20 g of a standard moisturizer and have been applying it to her bare spots for a week. They haven't filled in completely but there is noticeably more fur in those spots. Prior to this, you could see the bare spots easily from a distance. Now, the one on her left leg isn't even visible unless you look closely and move the surrounding fur. The results for this are much better than I would have expected.
