Best taken at night. Clinically shown to reduce weight in humans. AOD helps to lose stubborn abdominal fat has restorative properties to the cartilage of joints. Does not have negative side effects on IGF1 or blood sugar levels. It has a longer half life than FRAG.
FRAG has been shown to cause weight loss in animal and human studies. It helps to target fat loss by mimicking the lipolysis portion of the growth hormone gene. It does not have as long of a half-life as AOD, therefore it cam be taken in the morning or at night depending on your eating schedule.
How it Works
AOD and FRAG therapies have been heavily researched however, they are not currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration to diagnose or treat any known medical conditions. Their use in adults to lose weight continues to be studied in clinical trials but any other usages is considered “off label” and should only be used under the direction of a physician.
What is AOD & FRAG?
For years people have been asking for something to help them lose weight, specifically fat. There are many treatments available: Diet and exercise, liposuction, sculpting (Hot and Cold), and multiple supplements. At NeuDrip, we have studied them all. Sometimes diet and exercise alone are not enough, and procedures are costly and have varied results. Supplements and prescription medications can have varied unintended consequences. We offer two peptides that mimic the fat burning portion of growth hormone: AOD 9604 and Frag 176-191.
Both AOD and FRAG
Both are composed of the last 16 amino acids of the Growth Hormone molecule, this is responsible for the fat burning effects seen with Growth Hormone. The chemical difference between them is AOD has a tyrosine amino acid in place of an alanine. This gives AOD a longer half life in the body aka it has a longer effect of 6-8 hours vs Frag which is closer to 2 hours.
AOD 9604 is a heavily researched peptide that has been shown in human clinical trials to have increased fat loss. In a human study of AOD 9604, 300 obese individuals took the drug once daily for 12 weeks, and results showed that it tripled weight loss when compared to the placebo. The study also found that the weight loss remained steady during the trial, indicating that resistance to AOD 9604 drug would be unlikely.
There are a number of AOD 9604 and Frag studies that demonstrate its effectiveness in treating weight gain and obesity. Human studies with Frag have not shown clinical significance, which is a fancy way of saying that while its use has shown weight loss in patients, it cannot be proven beyond any doubt.
In addition to its fat loss properties, studies show that AOD 9604 can also help osteoarthritis, as well as promote bone and cartilage repair.
So what’s the difference?
Think of it like this it’s like comparing botox to dysport… AOD has more of an effect each day than FRAG. AOD will do more of the work than FRAG however it is more effective when combined with intermittent fasting. If intermittent fasting is not part of your routine, you will see more benefit from FRAG.
NeuDrip offers both AOD 9604 and Frag 176-191, call to find out which is right for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our therapy focuses on adult clients who feel they have lost something with age and are trying to restore youth. It is not intended to treat or cure any specific medical problems. After your initial consultation and lab work, we will discuss if peptide therapy is right for you.
If you are suffering from fatigue, weight gain, thinning hair or any of the other chronic symptoms listed above that Peptide therapy have been shown to improve, you should contact NeuDrip to schedule a consultation. You may be suffering from the effects of aging and low GH levels. You may also be suffering from other illnesses, our Board Certified Surgeon can help you figure this out and make the recommendations that are best for you.
Yes. The best way to do peptides is through subcutaneous or intramuscular injections. We focus on daily subcutaneous injections because it gives the most control and accuracy. While some peptides can be taken orally, absorption through the GI tract and metabolism by the liver can greatly affect the dose needed and the results.
Peptides naturally increase the amount and or duration of your natural release of growth hormone. While some of the benefits to sleep and recovery will be seen in the first few weeks, other effects like bone density, collagen levels, and cardiovascular improvements may take 3-6 months.
For best results GHRP should be dosed to coincide with your natural growth hormone release from the pituitary gland. That occurs at night while we are sleeping. Therefore your injection should be 30-60 minutes prior to going to bed.
It is ok to miss a dose of medication, you do not need to “make up” the dose at your next injection and we do not recommend changing the dosing on your own.
GHRP causes you to release more of your natural growth hormone at one time, your body needs to replenish those supplies. By taking a holiday 2 days a week, you help to restore your supply of Growth Hormone.
While the long term effects of peptides are not yet known, there are several clinical studies showing their safety and benefit.
