Melanotan II has become a popular product in the bodybuilding community, for two major reasons. The first is the way it develops a gradual, natural-looking tan that shows muscles off to their best potential and the other is the boost that it can give the libido.
A tan is an important part of the way a bodybuilder’s muscles look and a healthy tan can enhance them, especially for a competition. Together with strategic lighting, creams and oils a tan can make certain muscle groups appear larger and bulk out the person’s frame.
Melanotan II has also been more popular because of the positive effect it has on the libido. Prolonged use of anabolic steroids can decrease the amount of circulating testosterone in the body, even though the person is exercising regularly. When the body receives its hormones from an external source it gradually stops making them itself, and testosterone levels are likely to get lower as a result.
For most bodybuilders one supplement that can take care of the aesthetic need to have a natural looking tan, and take care of boosting their libido, is convenient. For bodybuilders whose sex drive has not been adversely affected Melanotan I can give them the tan they need without having any effect on their libido.
While bodybuilding is supposed to highlight the aesthetic of a healthy and toned physique the use of steroids has made it a very unnatural process that causes more harm than good over the long term. Misusing anabolic steroids can result in problems related to sexual health and can also cause infertility over the long term. Illegally obtained steroids are usually about ten times stronger than those prescribed for medical reasons by a doctor, and many bodybuilders “stack” or use more than one at a time, making their side effects even more pronounced.
Certain melanotan peptides have been shown to have fat burning capabilities and enhance weight training and weight loss efforts. They promote the release of Growth Hormone which has a positive effect on the body’s ability to build lean muscle mass and respond positively to the hours you spend working out.
GHRP Peptides can be taken on an empty stomach and followed up with a high protein / low fat / low carbohydrate meal or meal replacement shake thirty minutes later by people who want to bulk up. For those who want to cut, they can take the peptide and skip the meal afterwards. For best results the peptides should be taken in conjunction with a high protein / low carbohydrate / low fat diet. The peptides do not provide a quick fix solution and need to be committed to for a minimum period of three to six months in order to see favourable results.
