Re: dosing for injections for antiaging

Dr. Loren Pickart ·
There are reports of human injecting GHK-Cu bought from other companies. If someone does this watch the blood pressure which may decrease with a very high dose. I do not recommend injection but if you do this, the keep it to a total to 2 mgs to 20 mgs of GHK-Cu. A possible lethal dose, based on studies in mice, would be about 23,000 mgs injected IV at one time.

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 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?

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

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.

Re: Dosing

Dr. Pickart says: "My earlier estimates of the amount of GHK-Cu needed for human effects were far too high. Since we are in the USA, we only have good reports on GHK-Cu working well at 1 to 7 mgs per day by injection. The SuperSmart GHK-Cu has Linguinal 5 mg GHK-Cu and we have a number of good reports on that product.

Thank you for posting your question - We are happy to reply back! We are checking with Dr. Pickart to see if there might possibly be any interaction if you plan on adding GHK-Cu to this product. Keep in mind that for a finished product however, Dr. Pickart never suggests to go beyond 3% GHK-Cu as the final concentration. There simply would be no need to and Less is More when dealing with potent cosmeceuticals. Best Wishes, -Skin Biology

I’ve also tested various oils such as jojoba or, even better for hair, castor oil, and they come at a neutral ph as well. Will that be enough to consider them safe for the GHK-Cu?
