What is AOD-9604?
AOD-9604, also known as the Anti-Obesity Drug is one of the rare peptides that is FDA approved. The FDA lists it under the GRAS status, which means it is Generally Recognized as Safe when used as intended. AOD-9604 is a modified synthetic analog of human growth hormone, originally developed in the 1990’s by Professor Frank NG at the Monash University in Australia. Professor Ng was trying to find a drug that would replicate the fat-busting effects of human growth hormone without the muscle-building properties. It is known to speed up metabolism and increase weight loss in less time than simply diet and exercise combined.
What are the Benefits of AOD-9604
Combined with proper diet and exercise, AOD-9604 reduces body fat at a higher rate due to its ability to stimulate the pituitary gland and imitate the way natural growth hormone regulates fat metabolism. It prohibits the body’s natural tendency to transform non-fatty foods into body fat and promotes the utilization of stored energy during fasting or exercise. AOD-9604 will not affect blood sugar levels and reduces visceral fat – which is fat tissue in and around the organs in the abdominal area. AOD-9604 also mimicks the regenerative properties of growth hormone.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Depending on the individual, family history, level of obesity, and several other health factors, it is hard to pinpoint the exact time frame that results will be evident. However, most people taking AOD-9604 supplements will see noticeable results within 3 months. Obviously when combined with a strict diet and exercise program, some may see results much sooner. AOD-9604 can also be used in conjunction with other therapies to enhance results and increase fat loss. With no known risks associated with treatment, AOD-9604 is a safe and effective treatment for weight loss and fat burning. Recent clinical studies have shown a reduction in body fat in obese, over-weight, and average-built people, primarily in the mid-abdominal region.
In addition to its ability to decrease body fat, AOD-9604 is also being studied for its regenerative abilities. Human growth hormone is known for its ability to maintain, build and repair healthy tissue in the body, along with accelerating the healing process after a muscle or bone injury. Studies are now being conducted on the replication of these properties by AOD-9604. Currently, there are studies taking place to test the use of AOD-9604 in treatment for osteoarthritis, hypercholesterolemia, bone, and cartilage repair. When used in conjunction with BPC-157 (Body Protective Compound), known for its regenerative properties, AOD-9604 can have a positive impact on the repair of cartilage, tendon, and muscle injuries.
How is AOD-9604 Administered?
AOD 9604 can be taken orally or injected subcutaneously (under the skin). The oral method is in the form of a dissolvable lozenge. Injections will be absorbed more quickly into the bloodstream. Most people only require one injection or dose per day. To optimize results, take on an empty stomach – either 30 minutes before a meal, or 30-45 minutes after your last meal of the day. It’s best to consult your health care professional for timing and dosage levels that are best for you. Keep in mind that peptides can break down if exposed to high temperatures, so it is always best to store them in a refrigerator.
Is AOD-9604 Safe?
The amino acids in AOD-9604 are the same as those of the growth hormone naturally produced by your body. Recognized by the FDA in the GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) category, this peptide is extremely safe with no known health risks associated with it.
