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...

Why is a lethal doze mentioned ? Dear Dr. Pickard, why don’t you tell us the side effects directly if Injected. Yes, there are Drs. prescribing this injections and people seeing skin tightening, youthful suppleness, etc . Also vials vary from $200.00 and up! Why such wide range on pricing?

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? Thank you, Adam

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...

Re: dosing for injections for antiaging

Dr. Loren Pickart ·
I would not recommend injecting GHK-Cu. We just have little information on human injections. GHK-Cu passes the stratum corneum rather easily, so just using the product on your skin, should put some GHK-Cu into your body. And GHK-Cu works at 1 nanomolar on cells. The Russian anti-anxiety studies in rats found GHK strongly affects the rats within 12 minutes at a dosage that would correspond to 35 micrograms in humans.

Hi Dr . Pickart , why do you say Crepey Skin Escape is not meant to be used around the eye area ? I read this statement but you don't say why . Is it because it contains DMSO ?

Re: DMSO & GHK: A Success Story

Dr. Loren Pickart ·
I don't think it will cause any problems. We just are somewhat over-cautious on newer products. Crepey Skin Escape is receiving great reviews. As for DMSO, I still have not found any real evidence for toxicities. Mechanics have used it for many decades to remove grease from auto parts.

Re: Basal Cell Cancer on Nose

We are not allowed to give medical advice. GHK seems to have both anti-cancer properties and skin regenerative properties. Retinoic acid also has both anti-cancer and tissue regenerative properties.

Re: Basal Cell Cancer on Nose

Dr. Loren Pickart ·
I think it would be safe but I am not a physician. I recommended retinoic acid because it is widely used in cancer therapy and also remodels skin. Go to "Pubmed" and do a search on "retinoic acid cancer" and youbwill see what I mean. GHK may be used in cancer treatments in the future, but for now still in the basic research area.
