You’re probably aware that peptides can have a significant impact on muscle growth and gain in bodybuilders. What you may not realise is that there are a plethora of peptides to choose from, making it nearly impossible to determine which are most effective for muscle gain and muscle growth without extensive research. Of course, you don’t have to spend hours, or even days, researching peptides. Instead, we’ve compiled a list of the top muscle-building peptides.

Below is our list of the best peptides for muscle growth, ranked by effectiveness and popularity, as well as a brief description of how they are used and the results you can expect. USA Direct Sarms

1. The GHRP

Bodybuilders have come to rely on GHRP, or growth hormone-releasing peptides, to maximise muscle gains. GHRP-6 is widely regarded as the most effective GHRP on the market, particularly for bodybuilders who struggle to meet their high-calorie requirements. This is because it stimulates your appetite by releasing ghrelin, a digestive enzyme. According to research, it can help you gain lean body mass while losing fat. However, you should expect to be starving within 20-30 minutes of taking it.

Dosage of GHRP

One microgram/kg per day is typical (It is recommended you inject one before breakfast and one before bedtime).

Each injection should not be more than 300 mcg.

• Increased appetite • Increased energy levels, allowing for longer and harder training • Significant muscle and strength gain • Increased lean body mass • Improved sleep quality but not duration • Reduced recovery time from injuries and intense workouts

2. ipamorelin

Ipamorelin is one of the most recent and widely discussed growth hormones on the market. Some bodybuilders consider it to be “the best growth hormone-releasing peptide.” This is because it mimics ghrelin and stimulates pituitary gland growth hormone secretion. But, more importantly, it does so without stimulating your appetite, essential for bodybuilders who have no trouble meeting their daily caloric requirements.

Dosage of Ipamorelin

Begin with 100 mcg first thing in the morning. You can then progress to 200 mcg per day.

It is especially effective when combined with 100 mcg GRF-MOD1 29. An 8-week cycle is recommended, with a maximum of a 12-week cycle.

• Reduced body fat • Increased lean muscle mass • Improved workout recovery • Anti-aging properties that improve the appearance of skin and nails • Minimal impact on cortisol levels

3. Hexarelin

Hexarelin (also known as examorelin) is another potent GHRP that increases your body’s release of growth hormones. This boosts cell regeneration and reproduction in the muscles, resulting in a more pronounced, leaner muscle tone. Aside from that, studies show that Hexarelin increases specific bone markers, implying that it helps increase bone density, potentially lowering your risk of osteoporosis and fractures later in life.

Dosage of Hexarelin

Every day, 100 mcg is injected at the same time.

For the best results in a 30-day cycle, take 1-2 weeks off.

Hexarelin Effects • Excellent muscle growth and strength gain • More pronounced muscle tone • Overall performance improvement • Lower levels of body fat • Significant increase in healing properties.


Follistatin has grown in popularity among bodybuilders in recent years. The reasons for this are straightforward. According to research, it promotes cell growth throughout the body and increases muscle tissue in response to injury. It has also been shown to stimulate muscle growth by acting as a myostatin inhibitor. This is significant because myostatin restricts how quickly and how much muscle you can build. Therefore, Follistatin allows bodybuilders to gain strength above normal levels by doing so.

Follistatin dose is 100 mcg injected once daily for 10 to 30 days.

Follistatin Effects • Significant increase in muscle growth in a shorter period • Decreased fat accumulation in the body by effectively decreasing the size of adipocytes (fat-storing cells) • Rapidly increasing lean muscle mass • Aids in muscle loss • Improved fertility.

CJC-1295 is number five.

CJC-1295, which works by increasing plasma growth hormone levels in your body, has long been a favourite of bodybuilders. It works the same way as the peptides discussed above, giving you more muscle definition, a leaner frame, and more energy.

Dosage of CJC-1295

There are two options. CJC-1295 DAC (drug affinity complex) is an improved version with a longer half-life.

Because of its long half-life, users only require one injection per week. Therefore, the recommended starting dose is 500 mcg per injection for a maximum of 4-6 months (In some cases, users may benefit from dosages as high as 1000 mcg per week, though you should start at a low dose).

The recommended dosage for CJC-1295 is 500 mcg injected three times per day, though you can inject up to 1000 mcg three times per day.

• Shortens muscle recovery time between intense workouts • Improved muscle definition • Increased muscle mass and strength • Enhanced fat metabolism • Reduced body fat levels • Reduced signs of ageing • Improved sleep quality

Peptide Injection Procedure

If you’re new to injecting peptides, you might be surprised at how quick and straightforward the procedure is. This is a subcutaneous injection, which means you’ll go just beneath the skin’s surface.

Before you continue, here are some of the best subcutaneous injection sites:

• Upper arm • Abdomen (at least 2 inches away from the belly button) • Thighs • Lower back, if you can comfortably reach it

Following the selection of your site:

1. Clean your hands.

2. Prepare the needle and the injection by the instructions that came with it.

3. Clean the injection site with an alcohol wipe.

4. Using your thumb and index finger, grasp 1-2 inches of skin. Pinch the skin together.

5. Insert the needle entirely through the pinched skin.

6. Remove the skin and press down on the plunger to allow the peptides to be released. Make sure that everything goes in.

7. Remove the needle and dispose of it properly.

8. Apply pressure to the injection site with a cotton ball for a few seconds.
