AOD 9604, a modified form of amino acids 176-191 that was originally used as an anti-obesity drug. Injecting this modified hormone fragment can stimulate the pituitary gland, which in turn can speed up metabolism and burn body fat. AOD 9604 imitates the way human growth hormone regulates fat metabolism and prohibits the transformation of non-fatty foods into body fat. AOD 9604 does not affect blood sugar and can help mobilize stored energy during fasting or exercise.
Peptide AOD 9604 regulates how the body metabolizes fat. It does so by:
- Stimulating lipolysis, or the breakdown of fats and lipids via the hydrolyzation of triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids.
- Inhibiting lipogenesis, the metabolic process that forms fat (even from nonfat foods), increasing the amount of triglycerides in the body.
Researchers have also discovered the benefits of AOD 9604 aren’t limited to fat loss. It also contains various other regenerative properties that may benefit people with:
- Worn cartilage
- Bone damage
