Bodybuilding Peptide Effectiveness Ratings
IMPORTANT NOTE: GH (Growth Hormone) Releasing Peptides and other peptides mentioned on this website DO NOT cause quick changes in body composition as may be the case with anabolic steroids for building muscle mass, or stimulant weight-loss drugs such as Duromine, Albuterol, Clenbuterol etc.
To gain any significant benefit from these products you must be committed to taking them for 3 months at a minimum, however 6 months is usually better. They provide slow and steady gains/losses in weight (depending on your goal), but the advantage to this is the results are much more permanent than drugs which cause rapid changes in body composition, and they have a much better safety profile with little to no side effects.
Below we have ranked each of the 8 peptides mentioned on this website according to various goals for which they are used. The rankings are based on both feedback from longer-term users of the products and also clinical trials. Please note, the rankings are based assuming each peptide is used on its own, not when used in combination with other peptides (which can significantly increase their effectiveness). To read which peptides are best used together, please visit the Peptide Combinations information page
Note: For side effects, the higher the rating, the fewer the side effects.

Persons who train (strength training and/or cardiovascular) a few times a week and are interested a “cycle” of significant length (3-6 months) involving a combination of two products to increase their effectiveness and results.
Best Muscle Building Combination: GHRP-6 + CJC-1295 DAC
Best Fat Loss Combination: HGH Fragment 176-191 + CJC-1295 DAC
For Advanced Athletes
Persons who follow a very strict training (strength and/or cardiovascular) and diet regime who wish to utilize as many products as possible, and for a significant amount of time (6 months or more), in order to gain maximal results:
Best Muscle Building Combination: GHRP-6 + CJC-1295 DAC + IGF-1 LR3
Best Fat Loss Combination: HGH Fragment 176-191 + CJC-1295 DAC + IGF-1 LR3
Safest* Overall (for long term usage) Combination: GHRP-6 + Modified GRF 1-29 + IGF-1 LR3
*While CJC-1295 DAC is by far the most potent, effective and convenient peptide for muscle gain, fat loss and anti-aging, it causes a continual GH release in the body. Although this has not been proven unsafe, even in very high dosages, it is not known what continuous year-round use could do to the pituitary gland. This is why it is always recommended to cycle CJC-1295 DAC every 3-6 months with its shorter-acting brother Modified GRF 1-29 which only causes pulses of GH and not a continual “GH bleed”. It should be noted however that for maximal benefit in the quickest possible time, CJC-1295 DAC should definitely be used and not completely avoided as some have suggested.
