Re: dosing for injections for antiaging

Dr. Loren Pickart ·
From Reddit 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...

Hi Dr. Pickart, I've been using GHK-Cu for 4 weeks at 5mg daily. I've had great effects including skin, cognitive function and hair growth, it's pretty incredible! I have a quick question that I'm hoping you can answer. You recommend the purchase of GHK-Cu through Ceretropic. I'm curious what dose people use for anti aging effects. I'm concerned of copper toxicity and taking to much of GHK-Cu. I've spoken with you on the phone and had a great conversation with you! You're done amazing work...

I've been using GHK copper peptide injections for about a year for general anti-aging and systemic effects. I'm not aware of any side effects at present, and have not found much info on the subject. I also use the Skin Biology products topically. Peptide Sciences is a reputable provider of , high quality injectable peptides, made in US. Good customer service. There are less expensive vendors, but the quality is suspect.

I don't know of any side effects at the dosages typically used which are 1 to 7 mgs daily. In one kilogram amounts, GHK-Cu costs about $10 a gram or $0.10 per milligram. But we have been under FDA pressure for years about the copper peptides and can say little. We cannot say what all the other sellers of copper peptides say about the actions of copper peptides. I have been told many times by FDA people that we have too much science. SuperSmart sells a sublingual form of 5 mgs GHK-Cu but,...

Hello Dr. Pickart, I’ve been following your work for years with much interest You mention; ”The only issue is to keep copper and zinc in a rough balance of about 5 parts zinc to 1 part copper.” In maintaining proper zinc/copper balance are oral zinc supplements suitable for raising zinc levels?

Also too much zinc or iron can lower the copper in your body. Also: Are there any other special considerations?

Re: Copper Misconceptions

Dear Beth, Many of our clients have emailed us with concerns about the safety of copper. Excessive copper has been blamed for many diseases – Alzheimer's, heart disease, cancer, etc. The problem is that most of this comes from data on blood plasma copper and diseases. But usually, high blood plasma copper is associated with low tissue copper. Most plasma copper (60%) is locked in proteins such as in ceruloplasmin - an acute phase reactant that rises with stress and disease, and other...

GHK has a potential for treating several diseases and in all the research on the molecule, no negative actions have ever been reported. But I doubt if it will ever used in the USA because of its low cost. Think of the new $1,000 a day drug for the treatment of hepatitis C of the liver. The best possibility is that it be used as a nutritional supplement and encapsulated in liposomes for oral use. It should fit the legal definition of a nutritional supplement.

Please let me know if you hear of any good results with this system. My hope is that physicians outside of the USA start testing GHK-copper on patients. My fear is that the big pharma will replace GHK with an expensive synthetic drug filled with side effects. The person's lungs might work better, but their hair will fall out, they will have constant nausea, and their cognitive ability will plummet.

Dear Rossana, I see no problem with this. Copper and magnesium have very different binding affinities. There is great confusion about copper in the blood.
