AOD-9604: The Anti-Obesity Drug
Everything you need to know to start your research with this peptide!
Wait, What Was A Peptide?
Peptides are short strings of amino acids, typically comprising 2–50 amino acids.
They are easier for the body to absorb than proteins because they are smaller and more broken down than proteins.
Therefore, they can more easily penetrate the skin and intestines, which helps them to enter the bloodstream more quickly.
Research peptides are any peptides that researchers use in scientific research.
In recent years, peptides have gained recognition as being highly selective and effective in therapeutic applications.
Research peptides are those synthesized for study in the lab that can lead to new breakthroughs and future pharmaceuticals, but they become medicines only after undergoing rigorous study, clinical trial, and crucially, the FDA approval process.
HGH Fragment 176-191
To tell the full story on AOD-9604 it is important you also know this peptide.
HGH Fragment 176-191 is a synthetic form of amino acids 176-191. This region of amino acids is known for playing a role in both the breakdown and formation of fat.
It targets fat cells and enhances the burning of fat.
The main effect of this compound is to reduce abdominal fat (mainly visceral fat), without compromising blood glucose levels and to increases muscle mass.
Other positive features of HGH Fragment 176-191 include protein synthesis, vascularity from increased nitrogen retention, increased bone mineral density, better sleep, and increased strength through hyperplasia.
Many studies have shown the fact that the HGH Fragment 176-191 is an effective treatment for obesity and fat loss, and much safer than its Human Growth Hormone counterpart.
So What About AOD-9604 Then?
AOD-9604 is a modified version of HGH Fragment 176-191. It is actually almost the same peptide but tyrosine is added at the N-terminal end.
It gives the peptide a more efficient structure basically.
So in short, we could say it is the better version of the original HGH Fragment 176-191.
The modification of this peptide makes sure the structure of the peptide is stronger.
The biggest advantages of this modification are that the peptide is transported inside the test subject in a better and more efficient way after injection.
In this way, the short-chain peptides can do their work more efficiently and so all the benefits of this peptide will be much stronger than with regular HGH Fragment 176-191.
So because of the added tyrosine, the structure of this peptide is stronger.
You could say it is HGH Fragment 176-191 2.0. A sample study on this concept can be found here.
How Does It Work And How To Do Your Research?
AOD-9604 is FDA-approved and often marketed as an anti-obesity drug.
In particular, AOD-9604 is known to reduce abdominal fat, have no effect on blood sugar levels, prevent non-fatty foods from turning into body fat, and regulate metabolism.
Additionally, AOD-9604 can improve a body’s response to healing, encourage cellular growth, and heal torn muscles due to rigorous exercise.
Like almost any peptide it works best when using injections for your research.
It works best in a fasted state. So you should focus on this in your research to get maximum benefits.
It has a short half-life so you can even inject it twice a day in your research.
One of the most efficient and popular ways of researching with AOD-9604 is doing one injection right before bed, 3-4 hours after food, and one injection straight upon wakening, with a short fast of 3-4 hours after the injection.
You could also add some form of cardio for your test subject more at the end of the morning fasting period.
Short Recap With All Benefits
AOD-9604 (Anti-Obesity Drug 9604) is a peptide that excels in fat burning.
Research should be done with injections and in a fasted state.
AOD-9604 is a better and more efficient modification of HGH Fragment 176-191.
The benefits of this peptide are:
- Reduces body fat
- Increases calorie burn
- Triggers fat release
- Boosts your metabolism
- Prevents non-fatty foods from turning into body fat
- Doesn’t increase your appetite
- No negative effects on blood sugar levels or tissue growth
- May help with bone and cartilage repair, especially when used with the peptide BPC 157
As with most peptides, research shows virtually no side effects when researching with this peptide.
We hope this article gets you excited for future research with this great peptide and gives you all the research help you need.
