Hey guys and gals-

Another Christmas is here and the Need to Build Muscle family wants to wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday.

For us 2011 was a year of incredible growth for the company – we were able to hire a full time staff and open a brick and mortar store where we not only sell our products to walk-in customers, but where we can ship and receive products and house our entire support staff (the people who you hear on the other end of the phone when you call us) in one building. That’s a huge deal for us, because it puts our customer support on an entirely different level – you can actually get me on the phone (the owner of the company) almost any time you’d care to call. And you can even stop by and check out our products in person, any day of the week (*except Sunday – we all need a day off).

So this year I was also able to meet a lot more of my customers, both in person and on the phone… sometimes leading to hour-long conversations about working out or eating right, or even sharing recipes. Remember, my entire business started out with me selling home made protein bars out of my kitchen, while I was writing a cook book for EliteFitness.com and also working as a Chef in Boston. That kind of thing doesn’t happen when you don’t put in a lot of hours, and it doesn’t happen when you don’t keep your customers happy (how can a business keep growing if they consistently lose customers?).

And we’ve also stepped up our quality control, taking the initiative to not only import the highest quality herbs, but we’ve now gone ahead and gotten them tested and authenticated by a leading third-party laboratory.

It’s also been a huge year for launching products, which is a great experience for everyone, because on this end we get to work with new ingredients and figure out interesting formulas, and for the customers, they get a chance to get their hands on something unique (remember, we were the first to work with Prolensis to offer Bulbine natalensis on the retail level, and have recently  partnered with WM-hdp to bring it to our customers first).

Anyway, I’d like to think that I not only have a lot of customers, but that I’ve also made a lot of friends (hey – fifty thousand forum members can’t be wrong!). So I’d like to give all of you guys – my friends – a gift for Christmas. From now until New Years, you can get 20% off anything in the NTBM store with the discount code “merryxmas”. Remember, you don’t need to worry about the stuff you eat between Christmas and New Years Day, you need to worry about the stuff you eat between New Years’ and Christmas!

Anyway, thanks for everything, and have a great holiday!

Need to Build Muscle Thanksgiving Mailer

The family here at NeedToBuildMuscle.com wants to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving – and to help celebrate, we’ve got some exciting new products, news, discounts, and special offers. And in case you haven’t heard we’ve got a brand new toll-free number:

1(855)-236-6987

Did you know that on the average Thanksgiving Day, Americans spent 1.2 hours eating and drinking, but a whopping  3.7 hours in front of the TV on Thanksgiving Day? If the food doesn’t get ya, the laziness will!

It’s a great day to hang out with family, and maybe catch up with some friends that you don’t get to see as often as you’d like. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to eat 3,000 calories in a single meal. What we like to do here at NTBM, to avoid eating a bunch of calories that we might not need, is:

  1. Make sure we drink a ton of water with our meal. This serves to help fill us up faster, and helps offset all of that sodium hidden in turkey stuffing. And hey, a protein shake or two can also help you keep your diet a little healthier onTurkey Day…
  2. Take a walk after the meal. Instead of plopping down on the couch (and usually falling asleep) we like to take a walk. It helps us digest and avoids that “food hangover” we get from too much food and too little activity.
  3. Eat a good breakfast. If you’ve eaten a good breakfast, you’re far less likely to hit the candied yams for a third helping.
  4. Don’t skip the gym. If we can, we do a workout or even just a bit of cardio, on Thanksgiving and the day after. Or failing that, we schedule our rest day to fall on Thanksgiving and hit the gym hard the next morning, while everyone else is hitting the shopping malls (haven’t these people heard of shopping online?!).
  5. Just because you blew off your diet for a day, don’t blow your supplements too. Have a protein shake, your usual fat burner, and whatever else you usually take.

And to help you get back on track after those huge Turkey & Stuffing dinners, we’re doing a golden ticket giveaway for all of our Whey to Build Muscle 5lb protein powders. Remember Willy Wonka? Well that’s exactly what we’re doing: we’re putting a golden ticket in 1 out of every ten bags, and the winner gets a free 30 minute phone consultation with me, Nathan Chase, the owner of Need to Build Muscle. So if you’ve got questions about training, diet, supplements, or whatever, you get to talk to me for half an hour and ask anything you’d like.

We’re also having a 25% off sale from now until November 30th. Just enter the promo code: givethanks25.

If you haven’t heard about Waxy Maize, it’s the one thing bodybuilders and endurance athletes can both agree on. It has an extremely high molecular weight and is the number one carb choice for people who don’t want their carbs to just be empty calories. Well we’ve actually got something even better on our hands – it’s called WM-hdp™, and although it’s made from Waxy Maize, it’s been chemically altered to (are you ready for this?) actually burn fat and increase resting energy expenditure. Regular Waxy Maize doesn’t do this. So we’ve teamed up with the very first company in the world to offer this product, WM-hdp™, and added it to our product line. If you’re already using Waxy Maize, switch to WM-hdp™ and let us know what you think. It mixes easily and without a blender into your favorite protein shake, and we’re offering 1lb bags in natural flavor, so it won’t interfere with the taste of your favorite shake (which we know is Whey to Build Muscle, right??).

For everyone who’s been patiently waiting, Thiomucase is back in stock, and HCGenerate & RSTransaderm will be in stock by December 1st.

So don’t let one day of overeating and under-exercising ruin your whole holiday season. Get back on track with our 25% off discount and our new fat-burning Carb, WM-hdp™.

 

 

N2 Burnthe only fat burner you’ll ever need!

Ever take a fat burner and then sit around waiting to “feel” something? Ever get jittery from as thermogenic only to crash two hours later? Or take the latest-greatest fat burner and not lose an ounce of fat? Those days are over now that N2Burn is here!  Our new formula contains ingredients proven to:

  • Destroy body fat
  • Build muscle
  • Boost metabolism
  • Improve thyroid function
  • Turbo charge energy levels
  • Enhance nutrient absorption

First let’s back up a bit…

You may have noticed that there’s never been a fat burner under the Need To Build Muscle name before. We’ve jumped in the ring with a product in every other category, from creatine to carbs to preworkout formulas, but we’ve never released our own premium fat burner until now. The reason for that is simple: We wanted to make sure we got it right the first time. Plenty of good companies have come out with really great proteins, preworkout formulas, and test boosters, but fallen flat on their faces when it came time to put out a really great fat burner.

Of course, the same can be said about any category, but the fat burner market is probably the most competitive one (think about it: it’s one of the only nutritional categories that you see television commercials for). So we knew that we needed to bring out A-game before we put our name on the product.

We knew we could formulate a great fat burner, and put tons of potent, high-quality ingredients into a capsule, but part of the problem is the capsule itself! Drop a capsule in a glass of water and what happens? After a few minutes, it dumps all of the ingredients into the glass at the same time. This is what causes that huge stimulant rush followed by a severe crash that you find with most fat burners.

That’s why we decided to use a time-release tablet (not a capsule, but an actual tablet). But we didn’t stop there – the coating on the capsule itself is thermogenic, and you’ll feel it working as soon as you take it – the coating is Cinnamaldehyde, a potent appetite suppressant and insulin regulator.

This way, N2Burn starts working as soon as it hits your tongue, and continues working throughout the day, because of our special time-release tablet and formula. We’ve designed this product to work alone as your only fat burner (2-3 tablets no more than 3x/day), but also to be used with a less complete, or faster-acting, formula (1 tablet along with your regular thermogenic).

In other words, maybe you crash after a couple of hours on your favorite fat burner – take one capsule of N2Burn with your current product, and you’ll enjoy a longer acting stimulant effect, thanks to our caffeine-amplifying and extending ingredients. Or maybe you still have stubborn bodyfat in the abdomen (guys) or legs (women)…N2Burn contains a special blend of yohimbe and Alpha-yohimbe that will target those areas. So even if you’ve already found a fat burner you like, you can use a single cap of N2Burn and turbo boost its effects!

The key here is the synergy between our ingredients. We built this formula from the ground up, to give you the best possible results, using only the highest-quality, scientifically-proven ingredients:

N2X (Caffeine) blend:

First we started with caffeine – a xanthine, and probably the most widely consumed fat loss agent in the world; whether it’s in your morning coffee or your fat burner, it’s been shown in studies – too many to even start mentioning – to burn fat through several mechanisms. It aids the muscle’s ability to contract, increases mental focus and clarity (blocking adenosine receptors) and it helps liberate and mobilize fatty acids for use as fuel instead of carbs and protein.

Caffeine is so important that we see it in nearly every fat burner on the market, and that’s because it not only elevates your resting metabolic rate – the degree to which your body burns calories while at rest – but it also boosts the amount of calories you’ll burn while exercising. This is why the time-release aspect of N2Burn is so crucial – it doesn’t hit you just drank a six-pack of energy drinks. It provides a clean, focused stimulant effect, with energy that doesn’t go sky-high, then leaves you crashing a few hours later.

Next, we added Naringin to the formula, based on a 1993 study showing that it could extend the effects of caffeine by up to 23%  – again, this was to make our product last longer than the competition. Then we added Mangosteen, another ingredient that we believe acts synergistically with caffeine, by inhibiting certain enzymes that may degrade the caffeine molecule in the bloodstream.

Remember, we wanted this to be a time-released formula…we could have loaded it up with a ton of caffeine, but we didn’t need to, because our other ingredients will extend and amplify its effects, and make it feel like you’re using a much higher dose (but without the jitters). Evodia Rutaecarpa, which not only increases the metabolism of caffeine, but also acts similarly by influencing the secretion of catecholamines, from the adrenal glands and reducing the uptake of fat and increasing the body’s natural rate of burning fat and heat production.

There’s no reason to take a teeth-chattering, insomnia-inducing 400 milligrams of caffeine, when we can take advantage of synergistic ingredients that can make a lower dose work even better.

N2 Phenyl blend:

Phenethylamine (PEA) is an amine found in chocolate, thought to provide the “good” feeling that results from a candy bar – but without the fat gain! It is also an important neurotransmitter and “clean” feeling stimulant that works (*you guessed it) synergistically with caffeine.

But it also works to increase fat loss by stimulating the all-important release of norepinephrine, which is (as you know) a potent lipolytic (fat-burning) hormone. To boost it’s effects, we’ve included two related ingredients: tyramine (4-hydroxy- phenethylamine) and hordinine (N,N-dimethyl-4-hydroxyphenylethylamine). Together, these three ingredients act in unison to stimulate fat burning while elevating your mood.  If you’ve never tried PEA before, do yourself a favor and try N2Burn! And even if you’ve tried it, you’ve never tried it with our unique blend of PEA analogues and synergists…

N2 BAT blend:

Originally, it was believed that humans didn’t retain much of their so-called Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT) after childhood – which is speculated, in part, to help explain why children have such fast (eat-anything-and-not-get-fat) metabolisms. Babies and infants have large amounts of brown adipose tissue, which is critical to their body’s ability to produce heat.

White fat cells store energy from the food we eat, but brown fat consumes calories to generate body heat. So you can see why we wanted to include something that helps stimulate this tissue. BAT stimulation has been shown to have incredible effects on fat loss, originating at the mitochondrial level; but only recently have those effects been shown to apply to human adults, who (it turns out) have a significant amount of this type of fat.

Green Tea Extract (EGCG) contains polyphenols and catechins, and was shown to significantly boost metabolism in a study published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. This is thought to be through Brown Adipose Tissue stimulation. Both Undaria pinnatifida (brown seaweed) and Norsynephrine Hydrochloride have been included as well, and both have also been shown to have considerable effects on brown adipose tissue.

N2 Heat blend:

Ever eat spicy food and find that you’re sweating halfway through the meal? Well that’s your body reacting to the spices by increasing thermogenesis, or the rate at which your body produces heat (and burns calories). Capsicum annum, or chili pepper capsinoids are often to blame for this reaction, and that’s exactly why we’ve included it in N2Burn. But not only does it boost your body temperature, it also helps with suppressing the appetite. Think about it: you can’t eat a ton of spicy food, not only because it’s hot, but also because you stop eating sooner. This is because of the appetite suppression found in hot spices. But even better is the fact that capsinoids can not only reduce overall bodyfat, but can also produce a site-specific reduction of abdominal fat.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a mild spice that has been shown to enhance energy metabolism and reduce lipogenesis (body fat accumulation)…even with a high-fat diet. We think this is important because we want people to think about this product for year-round use, not just for getting cut. Think about it: we’ve included a ton of fat-burning ingredients, but also a ton that prevent you from gaining body fat. This way, you can use a lower dose of this product while bulking, and make sure that your gains are lean body mass and not fat.

N2alpha blend:

Alpha receptors are like the traffic cops of fat loss. Without their signal to go, fat loss gets stopped in its tracks. Unfortunately, these receptors are abundant in so-called “problem fat” areas, i.e. the abdomen for men and the hips and thighs for women. Yohimbe hydrochloride and Alpha-Yohimbe (a more potent analog) are alpha-2 receptor antagonists –they deactivate the alpha-2 receptors and allows norepinephrine to mobilize stubborn fat stores. Both of these alkaloids are potent stimulants as well, and help contribute to the overall energy you’ll get from N2Burn.

Unfortunately, not all fat burners contain these alpha-receptor antagonists, which makes other products even more effective if you stack a single pill with your current (non-Alpha-stimulating) fat burner.

N2 Balance blend:

We consider Ashwagandha to be a must-have ingredient in any fat burner. It has been shown in peer-reviewed medical research to elevate T3 and T4 levels, while also lowering markers of oxidative stress, and boosting testosterone at the same time. Research also indicates that it is a potent anabolic compound, and because the body is typically stressed while we’re trying to lose fat, this is very important. One of the first things to go on a diet is optimal thyroid levels, as your body attempts to readjust to a lower caloric intake, to maintain body weight. Testosterone levels also take a beating on a diet, as does performance. Ashwagandha can single-handedly tip the scales from losing muscle instead of fat to burning fat and actually gaining muscle!

If your current fat burner doesn’t include this ingredient, you need to start adding N2Burn into your supplement stack. Whether you’re bulking, or trying to gain muscle while keeping body fat off, this herb is essential to your success.

Finally, to balance the formula out, we included Coffee Arabica, Fenugreek, and R-ALA were added to help with insulin levels. As you probably know, elevated insulin levels can lead to the accumulation of adipose (fat) tissue, so we thought to include several ingredients that aid with insulin management. Coffee Arabica reduces the amount of carbohydrates stored by the body, fenugreek has been shown to favorably alter blood sugar, and R-ALA balances insulin and glucose levels.

And because the thyroid can take a beating while you’re dieting, we’ve added olive leaf, which can elevate active thyroid (T3) levels. And we’ve included N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, which is an epinephrine precursor, but also promotes a healthy thyroid gland, along with the known-thyroid stimulator Diiodotyrosine and gugglesterones. These ingredients will all help you achieve optimal thyroid levels, and therefore, optimal fat loss.

Phytosterol Extract and L-Theanine have both been shown to aid digestion, and because we suggest using this product before meals, we couldn’t imagine not including them. If you recall, the coating of our tablets is Cinnamaldehyde, which helps you eat less and control insulin. Therefore, taken right before a meal, N2Burn will help to curb your appetite, control insulin, and even help digestion – we’ve got you covered from your first bite to your last, whether you’re bulking, cutting, using N2Burn alone or in conjunction with a another fat burner.

My friends and Fellow Americans,  This year support Ron Paul for Republican Primary and president!

We as a nation have now become victims of our own government. Held captive and preyed on by the top ten pharmaceutical companies, who have more money and power then every other fortune five hundred company combined. The top ten have completely taken over in every facet of our government and nation’s leadership. No longer are we the great democracy we once were; rather now a dictatorship invested in disease, chronic illness, and obesity has been placed over us.

As former US Army, it pains me to say what I have and what I am about to say. Our ‘Under God’ is “under attack”, the Republic is no longer standing, our once indivisible has been divided up, along with our liberty and justice, handed to the top ten once and for all.

The money in Washington is ours and the people who work there is our supposed employees? Elected by the people for the people? I set aside partisanship a long time ago. I once believed that republicans represented morals and good family values. But now I understand that no matter what party you think you are, what side you think you stand on, and no matter what state you live in red or blue. Big business is running this country and the jokes on me and you.

What is it that I have been rambling on about?  Am I just another conspiracy theorist like every other American who speaks out is made to look like? Or like I have this past year, have you felt it too? What’s the latest news, what branch of the government is sticking it to us this time America? What laws have been passed “against us”? What freedom have we lost this time? What right do I know longer have today? In the Media this is never the headlines.  But here on the internet our last and only hope, these are the cries of a once great nation.  This is the reason you are 4 paragraphs deep into this Article, and exactly what I am about to tell you about again!!!

Hours of my fellow Americans blood sweat and tears have been spent building this nation and for what? I am sure everyone remembers June 30th 2006. NO? Why would you, and after everything that has happen since then how could you?  Well allow me to remind all of you what happen on that day.

On June 30th, 2006 a final ruling by the FDA went into effect. Establishing a regulatory power shift that bypassed all laws and our countries fundamental rights to protect our selves’ and loved ones.  This final rule was only one step toward a greater goal which is now being laid out for all to see. On June 30th 2006 our American right to face our attacker in court was stripped from us by our government. Our right to sue, or even question the safety and legitimacy of a drug pushed on us through our doctors, on behalf of a major pharmaceutical drug rep was taken away.  What our government did on that day was issue an   insurance policy for to pharmaceutical industry along with these words.

“We think that if your company complies with the FDA processes, if you bring forward the benefits and risks of your drug, and let your information be judged through a process devised by the FDA, you should not be second-guessed by state courts or the Americans whose lives they will effect.”

This law reversed long standing policies that allowed states to protect our consumer rights and safety! However the states, along with local entities, and every man woman and child of America was not given a single solitary opportunity of any kind to object!

Executive order 13132 given by one of our nation’s last great leaders, President Ronald Reagan, States the FDA is to consult with every states governing agencies and local authorities, about the effects of each regulation it issues that affects the state and its people.

Nowhere in the first proposed rules did the FDA make any mentions of any kind , seek comment , or counsel from the states or Americans , about the provisions they later snuck in under our noises. In fact the only paperwork the states and Americans had a chance to lay eyes on the FDA’s exact words were that the new regulation to be enacted would absolutely not over rule or negate state law. However this is exactly what the FDA did six years later well everyone was sleeping like a thief in the night.

Six years between the purposed bill and the actual bill snuck in by the FDA was given to insure everyone was sound asleep. Resting on false information and lies hand fed by the FDA six years prior, Americans hand no chance!   A complete abuse of agency process, and utter disregard for dual system of government that is in place to protect our rights and safety, And this is who we are supposed to trust to protect us from harm?

America we fell asleep once again, and like clockwork the government has snuck in and took our rights. On june 30th 2006 our government along with the FDA issued all the pharmaceutical companies an insurance policy. Then in January 2011 our US government handed the FDA a blank check to help insure that policy pays off!!

Despite the FDA’s inabilities to stop outbreaks of food born disease and its approval of deadly or at best problematic drugs (Ambien, Vioxx, and so many we lost count), our American government has taken away our rights to protect ourselves and choice how we as Americans want to insure we live healthy fit lives. We no longer have a choice!

I am not writing to you today to ask for your help in preventing the government from taking away every supplement we have ever known and come to rely on. No I am sorry to say, this has already been done! I was sleeping and so were you. Superfoods, multivitamins, detox supplements, and medicinal herbal products we have all come to depend on to prevent disease and boost our immune health could soon be stripped from store shelves and outlawed across the nation.

They have taken our hopes, our money, and our abilities to fight back and now even our choices of what we can and cannot take to keep us healthy will be stripped from us.

The pharmaceutical industry has been hard at work, doing everything it can to set the stage for the total annexation of the dietary supplement industry. We are going to lose every single supplement and natural product, cure, remedy therapeutic herb, municipal ingredient we have every known and there is nothing anyone can do about it!! The cold hard truth is now upon us. We are screwed beyond imagination.

America was lead to believe this was a good thing. That the supplement industry was evil and corrupt and had to stopped by the FDA before consumers get hurt.  Even though few, if any deaths at all were reported  in the newly implemented Adverse Event Reporting for dietary supplements, the Federal government is still aiming its regulatory muscle at vitamin, mineral and herbal pills. Despite the fact that dietary supplements are far safer than table salt, aspirin, vaccines and many FDA-approved drugs, they are being demonized. Year after year, surveys conducted by poison control centers show dietary supplements to be the safest products of all. Yet in the last 2 years the FDA has fought tooth and nail to demonize the supplement industry and label it hazardous to the consumers. Declaring too congress that it lacks the regulatory power to stop the supplement industry monster.

Below is a letter from Congressmen Paul and Defazio which echoes the concerns of vitamin consumers around the world regarding the immense threat posed by the UN Codex Commission to block our access to therapeutic potencies of vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements.

By clicking on the link following the letter, you can see the questions John Hammell asked Congressman Burton and his own Senators and Congressmen to ask the Congressional Research Service re our obligations under CODEX – and whether or not our domestic laws protect us from harmonization to international standards. http://www.iahf.com/index2.html

Remember the above letter date’s back pre 2003, and now just before the 4th of July weekend 2011, congress has just issued the blank check the FDA has been waiting for. In the wake of hundreds of dietary supplements recently being outlawed across the EU, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has quietly unleashed a regulatory scheme that, if fully implemented, could ban virtually all dietary supplements in the USA that were formulated after 1994.

A quote from Ron Paul http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul246.html

“Millions of Americans take dietary supplements every day, and the numbers are growing as the Baby Boom generation ages. More and more Americans understandably are frustrated with our government-controlled health care system. They have concluded that vitamins, minerals, and other supplements might help them stay healthy and less dependent on the system. They use supplements because they can buy them freely at stores and research them freely on the Internet, without government interference in the form of doctors, prescriptions, HMOs, and licenses. In other words, they use supplements because they are largely free to make their own choices, in stark contrast to the conventional medical system.


But we live in an era of unbridled government regulation of both our personal lives and the economy, and Food and Drug administration bureaucrats burn to regulate supplements in the same manner as prescription drugs.

The health nannies insist that many dietary supplements are untested and unproven, and therefore dangerous. But the track record for FDA-approved drugs hardly inspires confidence. In fact, far more Americans have died using approved pharmaceuticals than supplements. Not every dietary supplement performs as claimed, but neither does every FDA drug.

The FDA simply gives people a false sense of security, while crowding out private watchdog groups that might provide truly disinterested consumer information. It fosters a complacent attitude and a lack of personal responsibility among people who assume a government stamp of approval means a drug must be safe, and that they need not study a drug before taking it.


The FDA, like all federal agencies, ultimately uses its regulatory powers in political ways. Certain industries and companies are rewarded, and others are punished. No regulatory agency is immune from politics, which is why the FDA should not be trusted with power over our intimate health care decisions.

The real issue is not whether supplements really work, or whether FDA drugs really are safe. The real issue is: Who decides, the individual or the state? This is the central question in almost every political issue. In free societies, individuals decide what medical treatments or health supplements are appropriate for them.


Over the past decade the American people have made it clear they do not want the federal government to interfere with their access to dietary supplements. In 1994, Congress bowed to overwhelming public pressure and passed the Dietary Supplements and Health and Education Act, which liberalized the rules regarding the regulation of dietary supplements. Congressional offices received a record number of comments in favor of the Act, which demonstrates how strongly Americans feel about health freedom.

The FDA simply has thumbed its nose at Congress and ignored the new rules in many instances, by attempting to suppress information about health supplements. But in 1999 a federal appellate court affirmed that the American people have a First Amendment right to such information without interference from the FDA. However, members of Congress have had to intervene with the FDA on several occasions to ensure that they followed the court order.

My regular listeners already know about another looming threat to dietary supplement freedom. The Codex Alimentarius Commission, an offshoot of the United Nations, is working to “harmonize” food and supplement rules between all nations of the world. Under Codex rules, even basic vitamins and minerals will require a doctor’s prescription. As Europe moves ever closer to adopting Codex standards, it becomes more likely that the World Trade Organization will attempt to force those standards on the United States. This is yet another example of how the WTO threatens American sovereignty. By cooperating with Codex, the FDA is blatantly ignoring the will of Congress and the American people”

Dr. Ron Paul is a Republican member of Congress from Texas.

This year I will be supporting the only candidate I know for a fact has a proven track record of defending Americans rights to supplements.


Sermorelin


First before I get into the meat of this Article, that I know for a fact all of you will be salivating over after reading. I want to address My family today and say thank you to all of you once again for all of your support over the years. You have all been like brothers and sisters to me and as always I am forever indebted to you all. My friends These past 2-3 months have been a very exciting times for us all within the Needtobuildmuscle family. Why you ask? No I am positive anyone reading this right now who is a part of the family already has 50 answers to that question lol. But let us entertain the poor few who have been on the outside looking in so to speak. As part of the family you have gotten to take part in new learning experiences over the past 2-3 months. So many new and exciting experiences, its literally been like being 5 years old again and stepping foot into your very first candy store I would say. Hey, I am not going to even try to deny it folks. Even for me with my vast experiences, advanced knowledge of chemical enhancements, years+ researching/studying , and all that I have come to know. I my self have been like a kid in a candy store. I have found my self with that look of awe and amazement in my eyes as if I had just gotten my very first sneak peak of my old mans hustler magazine stash!

I have discovered more new information about everything from peptides to herbs in the last 8 months. Then I have in the last 7 years of my chemical enhancement pilgrimage my friend. Well OK I highly doubt that but wow does it ever feel like it some times. My friends it is you that has put breath back into my lungs and a beating back into my heart. For a wile there I was starting to think I mite have been losing my fire but circumstances out of my control that some would consider bad luck. Have actually jump started my research and passion like a defibrillator . So ya guys your going to be getting a butt load of Articles here on my blog. Now more then ever I have a drive to help all of you learn new things. Now more then ever I have a desire to RAISE THE BAR! and set the standard of knowledge, research, man helping man, our family, all that we have , have done and will do together. I have that passion again to reach for the sky and go for what they tell me I cant do and will never have. Then taking all of it and sharing it with the people who have always been with me. You my NTBM family.

OK OK Get to the Article already Needto

Yes my friends I am as excited as you are for this new one. Because this one is without a doubt the long lost secret fortune of the peptide world.

It is the king of all kings, and has been sitting on its ancient throne waiting to wage an epic war of massive muscle building proportions. If you read only one single Article of mine in your entire life friends, MAKE IT THIS ONE! Let the killing that shit commence.

Sermorelin is a form of GRF that contains just the first 29 amino acids. GRF that is produced by neurosecretory neurons in the brain contains 44 amino acids. The structure of GRF was first discovered by the Nobel Laureates, R. Guilleman and A. Shalley. Around the 1970’s one of their students, William Wehrenberg sought to determine which part of the HGH molecule was needed for its pituitary stimulating response. The process of eliminating individual amino acids and then examining the remaining peptide, he discovered that only the first 29 amino acids are responsible for stimulating pituitary production and secretion of GH. That is where the chemical name for Sermorelin GRH 1-29 NH 2 comes from. The NH 2 suffix is included in the name so as to indicate the amino terminus of the molecule. It is a growth hormone secretagogue, which means that it stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and secrete HGH. Sermorelin is a small peptide containing only 29 amino acids whereas HGH is a much larger molecule containing 191 amino acids. Real simple is the fact that Sermorelin is a biological active analog of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) responsible for the stimulation of GH. Daily doses of Sermerolin range from 200 to 500 micrograms. I have found that a 200mcg pre 1 hour pre work out and a 300mcg pre bed is so powerful I have wet dreams just thinking about what its doing to me well I sleep.

Sermorelin’s effects are regulated at the level of the pituitary gland by negative feedback loop and through the release of somatostatin so over stimulation of GH is avoided and sides of over GH stimulation are minimized or even avoided. Tissue exposure to GH released by the pituitary under the manipulation of Sermorelin is periodic not “square wave” preventing tachphylaxis by mimicking normal physiology cycle of a GH pulse. This occurs by stimulating the pituitary it preserves more of the growth hormone neuroendocrine axis that is the first to fail during aging, Pituitary recrudescence resulting from Sermorelin blocks the surge of hypophyseal hormone failure that occurs during aging; thereby preserving not only a vital anatomy but also a vital physiology. Sermorelin provides the patient with all the benefits and maybe more of HGH replacement therapy. Sermorelin has highly specific and dense receptors on pituitary somatotrophs for binding. Making it a real easy transition to bind to the cells that produce and release GH. Once it binds, Sermorelin initiates its action through a cylicAMP aka cAMP second messenger system which is the same as that used by naturally occurring growth hormone releasing hormone.


Loss of HGH potency after about six months or more of continuous use is not uncommon at all and is not due to lack of inefficiency. It is due to the fact that injection of HGH elevates blood levels of the hormone to unnaturally supra-physhiological values for several hours each day, and at unnatural GH pulse frequencies. Also, constant stimulation causes increased production of IGF-1 which also has more constant tissue exposure than with normal bodily states. These issues causes target tissue receptors to down regulate in an attempt to prevent over stimulation by the unnatural exposure to GH and IGF-1 aka Negative Feedback Loop. Under normal physiological conditions, GH is released from the pituitary gland in episodes that cause levels to increase and decrease many times throughout the day or as I like to call them GH pulse cycle frequencies. Under most normal conditions, tachyphylaxis or down regulation does not occur since the tissues receptors get time to “rest” between each stimulatory event. In contrast to HGH injections, there is no loss of potency with Sermorelin because its action on the pituitary gland is modulated by feedback through somatostatin and is all through endogenous means. This causes GH to be released from the pituitary in episodes, rather than in “square wave” pharmacological presentation as occurs upon injection of the gene mimicking product HGH. In addition, the pituitary gland up-regulates to stimulation by Sermorelin causing the gland to rejuvenate due to increased natural production of GH.RF/Sermorelin also has a direct effect on the brain to promote non-REM slow wave sleep. This is the reason why Sermerolin also induces such sleep, as slow waves are needed to maintain a slow heart rate where deep sleep can be peak. The deepest stage of sleep is where the most GH is released and this is why you will hear people say that their sleep is so deep like a baby while on GH therapy. Deeper sleep not only leads to more GH production but also more neurotransmitter production so that your brain functions better. One neurotransmitter that will surely rise while on Sermerolin usage is dopamine which is the neurotransmitter responsible for GH release, prolactin control, coordination, learned behaviors, reward system, emotion, well sense of being, aggression, motivation, and memory. Dopamine is also a neurohormone released by the hypothalamus. Its main function as a hormone is to inhibit the release of prolactin from the anterior lobe of the pituitary.

Now lets think about this for a minute my friends. Many of us over the last few months have been learning a lot about peptides haven’t you? One of the main concerns I have seen focused on throughout the NTBM communities Is how everyone of us love love loves The awesome muscle growth effects and increase to hunger from peptides like GHRP-6 and GHRP-2. However a few people have had trouble getting over or around the slight increase to prolactin that can some times be caused by them. More so with GHRP-6 then 2. Non the less I have seen concerns voiced for this issue with both.

I my self love chemicals that fall into the “mass building,size building, nutrition retention, increased hunger” categories so I was very pleased when the wave of excitement about swept through our forums about GHRP’s 6 and 2. I was of course let down to see so many people hang these peptides up on the shelf in feer of a little prolactin increase though..

OOO Yes I am sure by now most of you if not all are starting to see where I am going with all this. Yes Sermorelin’s dopamine agonist effects are so pronounced that it will cause enough inhibition of prolactin to almost completely offset any raise caused by GHRP-6 or GHRP-2. But my what I am about to show you next will blow your minds forever. Not only can we all pull GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 down of the shelfs again. We should just go ahead and make it mandatory that everyone does so. WHY?? Well my muscle seeking bood bro’s this is why <——-click read and OMG needto You are once again ” THE MAN” . Ok for you lazy folks who cant be bothered to click a link let me spell it out for you. I will just take out my favorite part of all and cut/paste it here for you to see.

After a combined challenge with GHRH1-29NH2(Sermorelin) and GHRP-2, five of eight children in group A had peak GH concentrations greater than 5 μg/L. GH AUC of the GHRH1-29NH2 plus GHRP-2 test in group A (1,136 ± 764 μg/L · min) was significantly greater than GH AUC of the GHRP-2 bolus (P = .02) but was not different from GH AUC of GHRH1-29NH2 (P = .09). A dramatic response to combined GHRH1-29NH2 and GHRP-2 administration was observed in group B, with peak GH levels above 100 μg/L in four of five children. GH AUC of the GHRH1-29NH2 and GHRP-2 combined study (7,035 ± 1,513 μg/L · min) was significantly greater than the AUC obtained after administration of GHRH1-29NH2 (1,943 ± 819 μg/ L · min, P = .015) or GHRP-2 (1,982 ± 887, P = .014) alone

Ok all that gibberish means is one huge fact. The Synergy of Sermerolin+ GHRP=super cycles. It is well documented and established that the concurrent administration of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH)(IE Sermerolin) and a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide(IE GHRP-6 or2)results in synergistic release of GH from pituitary stores. In other words if GHRH contributes a GH amount quantified as the number 2 and GHRPs contributed a GH amount quantified as the number 4 the total GH release is not additive (i.e. 2 + 4 = 6). Rather the whole is greater than the sum of the parts such that 2 + 4 = 10. Yes what I am saying is that when We combine Sermorelin with GHRP-2 or GHRP-6 we get super normal Growth hormone activity plus synergistic cancellations of side effects. Resulting in the perfect peptide cycle.

SuperCharge Sermerolin

As we know Sermerolin acts upon endogenous levels of GH along its natural pulse frequencies. Unfortunately; though we all now know that if you want to get the most out of GH you need longer periods of GH spikes . Furthermore We also now know that A lot of GHRP’s cause a rise in prolactin and some more then others like GHRP-2 and 6, but that these peptides are the bad boy kings of raising growth hormone levels among the moany other posative aspects they have. Making them by far the two best ” overall muscle building” peptides we have in our Arsenal . That is why I recommend that one take Sermerolin with a GHRP-6 or GHRP-2 so that you get the best of worlds.This will by far make Sermerolin a better alternative to HGH injections as you get the longer peak of GH with the significant increase in GH levels When you need them most ( more on dosing later) .But lets not loose steam and keep Killing this sh*t guys.

Moving on

Intravenous and subcutaneous sermorelin specifically stimulate growth hormone secretion from the anterior pituitary. Hormone responses to intravenous sermorelin 1 microg/kg bodyweight appear to be a rapid and relatively specific test for the diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency. False positive growth hormone responses are observed in fewer children without growth hormone deficiency after sermorelin than after other provocative tests. Adult data indicate that the combination of intravenous sermorelin and arginine is a more specific test and this merits evaluation in children with growth hormone deficiency. However, normal growth hormone responses to intravenous sermorelin cannot exclude growth hormone deficiency due to a hypothalamic deficit: subnormal growth hormone response to other provocative tests is needed to confirm the presence of disease in these patients. Limited data indicate that once daily subcutaneous sermorelin 30 microg/kg bodyweight given at bedtime is effective in treating some prepubertal children with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency. Significant increases in height velocity were sustained during 12 months’ treatment with sermorelin and data in a few children suggest the effect is maintained for 36 months of continued treatment. Sermorelin induced catch-up growth in the majority of growth hormone-deficient children. Slow growing, shorter children with delayed bone and height age appear to have a good response to treatment with sermorelin. The effect of long term treatment with once daily subcutaneous sermorelin 30 microg/kg bodyweight on final adult height is yet to be determined. The effects of the recommended dosage of sermorelin have not been directly compared with those of somatropin. However, increases in height velocity from baseline values with subcutaneous sermorelin 30 microg/kg bodyweight per day, given as continuous infusion or as 3 divided doses, were less than those in children receiving once daily subcutaneous somatropin 30 microg/kg bodyweight. Intravenous single dose and repeated once daily subcutaneous doses of sermorelin are well tolerated. Transient facial flushing and pain at injection site were the most commonly reported adverse events. CONCLUSIONS: Sermorelin is a well tolerated analogue of GHRH which is suitable for use as a provocative test of growth hormone deficiency when given as a single intravenous 1 microg/kg bodyweight dose in conjunction with conventional tests. Limited data suggest that once daily subcutaneous sermorelin 30 microg/kg bodyweight is effective in promoting growth in some prepubertal children with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency. (Prakash A, Goa KL (August 1999). “Sermorelin: a review of its use in the diagnosis and treatment of children with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency”. BioDrugs : Clinical Immunotherapeutics, Biopharmaceuticals and Gene Therapy 12 (2): 139–57.)

My chemical enhancement brethren, Semoreline was used by doctors and medical professionals for 28 years!! before its patten/use was dropped and it was no longer FDA approved for its uses with children. This is not just another hum drum peptide that only the hard core have tinkered with to see what it can do to our bodies. This bad boy has real history proving its worth through its wide spread use for “Human growth hormone therapy”.

Human growth hormone therapy and Sermorelin growth hormone releasing hormone therapy have substantially the same treatment benefits because injected recombinant human growth hormone (ex. Somatropin) medication is genetically engineered to have the same DNA structure as human growth hormone produced by the pituitary gland when stimulated by Sermorelin acetate growth hormone releasing hormone injections. The benefits of Sermorelin therapy or recombinant human growth hormone therapy include the following: Increases the development of lean body mass through the development of new muscle cells, increases muscular strength, increases vitality and overall energy, increases endurance and muscular endurance, reduces body through higher lipolysis output, improves heart contraction, increases recovery time from injuries and surgeries, increases IGF-1 production, improves sleep quality, improves the immune system defense, increases rate of protein synthesis and stimulate the growth of all inner body organs except the brain, and increases the mineralization of the bone along density through increased calcium retention.

Sermorelin Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone Therapy Costs Less Than Half the Cost of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone Therapy. I know people who are paying over 500 dollars a month from Anti-aging clinics to get their HGH therapy. That is a third of most people’s mortgage or rent. I personally could not see myself investing money on HGH as there are other MUCH CHEAPER ways of obtaining all the benefits of GH with a lack of sides such as injecting Sermerolin. For crying out loud, 500mg of L-dopa at 75% extracted from mucana pruriens would do a world of good and cost way less than HGH therapy.

With all that you can see above, Sermerolin is clearly a greater alternative to GH therapy for a cheaper price tag. But whats even greater is that when combined with GHRP-2 and or GHRP-6 We are able to create super Growth hormone cycles. SO let us now get into some protocols of the most powerful peptide cycles you can add to your steroid cycles or use stand alone.

We have already covered the basic but super peptide foundational combo. GHRP-6 or 2 combined with Sermorelin. With this as the foundation the limits for growth have been smashed to bits. Lets go over the dosing though.

The best way to dose this combo Would be as follows.

AM wake up dose: 300mcg-500mcg GHRP-6 or 200mcg-400mcg GHRP-2

1 hour Pre work out Sermorelin puls dose: 150-200mcg

post work out puls dose Sermorelin puls dose: 150-200mcg

Early night time dose: 300mcg-500mcg GHRP-6 or 200mcg-400mcg GHRP-2

pre bed puls: Sermorelin puls dose: 150-200mcg

What kind of effects can one expect from the above peptide cycle? You can expect this to be the best experence you have ever had with peptides weather it me your first or your 15th. If you have never used this combo then just start out nice and simple as its explained above. You will Sleep better, Wake up 100% more rested. Notice almost instant like muscle recovery. You will have a much greater feeling of well being throughout your entire day. Satisfaction in both mind and body my friends and of course muscle growth comes with all of the above and a cherry is added to the top of this cake in the form of fat melting like butter If one where to of course diet correctly.

What kind of variations do we have to choice from needto?

The variations to this cycle are endless. My persinal favorite would be dropping the post work out puls dose of Sermorelin and replacing it with a post work out dose of IGF-1 Ec or as most of our members know it MGF <–sold here as IGF-1dc my friends. Its really simple you would drop the Sermorelin and replace with

20-40mcg each side of the muscle group worked in a localized fashion. Ergo if you worked out your Chest that day you would Sub-q inject 1 20-40mcg dose into each pectoral muscle or into the left Triceps and right Triceps all depending on what muscle group you worked most and or what muscle grup is lagging for you. Yes you bet this causes localized recovery and growth.

My friends I thank you again as always for reading and following along with my blog. Your support is a major factor in my life and without it I am lost. I love you all so much and I hope you enjoy discovering this the long lost secret fortune of the peptide world. Or coming back to it again if you have been wasting your money on under dosed crap these days. I hear there seems to be a lot of that going on around forums these days.

STAY SAFE, BUY AMERICAN, AND ALWAYS REMEMBER TO SUPPORT THE PLACES THAT HELP YOU GROW THE MOST. Above all, always remember to Kill that shit guys!!!!
