Peptide has several interesting features. First, it is a good fat burner, and secondly, it can increase the endurance of athletes. It’s became quite a popular drug among cyclists, but he is interesting to us from the point of view of bodybuilding. Today we will find out whether there is any sense in using this drug by law enforcers.
Mechanism of peptide influence on the body
The main effect on the organism of this peptide is related to the activation of AMPK. Many athletes know that ATP is synthesized by mitochondria as an energy source for chemical reactions at the cellular level. These processes do not use fats, glucose and fatty acids as energy sources, since they must be produced in the mitochondria to create ATP. When this substance is synthesized, its first derivative product is adenosine diphosphate (ADP). If the cell lacks other energy sources, then the next derivative is adenosine monophosphate (AMP).
Accumulation of AMP occurs only in those cases when the cell has no more energy. The body has a special system, through which the cell identifies the absence of an energy source by the level of AMP, after which AMPK is activated urgently.
This substance then starts the process of obtaining energy from fatty acids, by converting them into ATP and stimulating the work of other systems. From all written it can be concluded that, thanks to AMPK, activation of the cellular mechanism takes place at the moment when they lack energy sources. This can happen with high-intensity training or from a lack of calories.
Dosages of the peptide
Now we should talk about those dosages of Boss Peptides, fat burning and stamina under which were increased. All these doses are valid for a person weighing about 90 kilograms.
At the moment, three studies on mice have been completed. In the first study, experimental animals had a tendency to diabetes and obesity. They were treated with the drug for five weeks daily in an amount of 500 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. The endurance of the subjects increased on average by 44%, and the expression of genes responsible for metabolic processes also increased. To a person, to achieve a similar result, you need to take about 3.2 grams per kilogram of body weight.
In a second study, mice were given a dose of 250 milligrams per kilogram of animal weight. An increase in insulin sensitivity, which lasted for 24 hours after application of the drug, was detected. The dose for a person would be the same 3.2 grams per kilogram.
In the last serious study, the dose was 150 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. Two groups of animals were used: inclined to obesity and thin. It was found that the peptide acted beneficially on obese animals, significantly improving their condition. In turn, in the body of lean mice, there have not been any significant changes. For humans, the equivalent dose to achieve this result is 1 gram per kilogram of body weight.
A few more less significant clinical studies were carried out, which confirmed the effectiveness of the use of the above dosages.
