Peptide Reconstitution Procedure for Potential Users
Without a doubt, the use of peptides is becoming extremely popular, considering the number of users that seem to increase day by day, but some are still confused and afraid of using such substances due to lack of factual information, while others find it very simple, alongside the requirement of simple mathematics.
The use of any Performance Enhancing Drug (PED) should always be with the guidance of a physician. Hence, this guide to the use of PED does not consider the existing laws of any country for that matter. Also, this article does not prove or disapprove any illegal activity. This is simply to guide and educate readers and potential users of PED. While this is merely for research use, there is without any reference to any companyís products.
Materials for Reconsitution
This is only an assumption that you have already acquired your peptide of choice. It is now time for the process of reconstitution. You will need the following paraphernalia in order to complete this procedure, including a peptide vial, bacteriostatic water, an insulin syringe, and alcohol wipes, which is normally available in local pharmacies or diabetic supply stores.
When it comes to the choice of syringes, it is always available in drug stores, but widely vary based on your country or state. Some places offer a low quantity of insulin syringe choices, while others require a prescription. Keep in mind that there are laws associated with this matter, mainly as a countermeasure in preventing the HIV increase transmission with the use of unsafe needles. This normally happens between the drug addicts who tend to purchase clean syringes.
Apparently, the syringe size greatly depends on the source. For instance, an insulin syringe ranges between 29g and 31g. For your awareness, the smaller the gauge, the larger the number. Therefore, a 31g syringe is smaller than a 29g syringe. Smaller gauge syringes generally provide less soreness during injection, however, these types are more fragile. A 31g syringe would be convenient enough, considering a minimal pinch, while ensuring proper care. Itís time to reconstitute once all materials have been gathered. Also, ensure a clean environment, prior to reconstitution, reducing the risk of contamination.
A typical 5mg peptide would be a good example, as manufacturers of these substances usually provide such measurement of GHRPs. If your product does not contain 5mg, this procedure would still hold true, although certain products may contain different amounts of active ingredients. This model will likewise use a 100mcg dose. But, then again, this could vary based on your product or your personal dosing preference.
Before anything else, it is also essential to measure the needed bacteriostatic water for the reconstitution procedure. A total of 50 doses is derived from 100mcg doses from a single 5mg vial (100mcg x 50 = 5,000mcg, or 5mg). This formula is applicable to any amount of product. For instance, the Ipamorelin peptide usually comes in a 2mg vial. That would be 2,000mcg of Ipamorelin, divided by 100mcg, equals 20 doses. The amount of dosage is very important because it will dictate the utilization of the reconstituted product.
Now, back to the initial 5mg product, which results in 50 doses. The main idea would be adding enough bacteriostatic water to the peptide, making way for individual dosage. Adding a little bacteriostatic water is preferred by some users with an attempt in keeping it easy enough to dose. Hence, the key point is to know that regardless the amount of bacteriostatic water in the vial, the yield would always be 100mcg. Therefore, adding 1ml of bacteriostatic water to the vial, the 100mcg dosage would be 2iu on the syringe.
It is up to you, the user, who will determine the amount of bacteriostatic water to use, while keeping this guideline a non-opinionated one. There is no recommendation on the use of bacteriostatic water as it will be determined by the size of the vial and the accuracy of your pins.
After choosing the certain amount of bacteriostatic water, it is now time for the actual reconstitution process. This model makes use of 2ml bacteriostatic water for the process. You can use this guide as follows:
1. First of all, snap off the plastic cover of both the peptide vial and bacteriostatic water.
2. Grab an alcohol wipe, wiping down the top (rubber material) of both the vial and water. Discard the alcohol wipe, while allowing the vials to dry up for a second.
3. Take the syringe and remove its safety cap as most syringes will have a cap over its needle, plus another one over its plunger. Set the caps aside, but ensure not to expose the needle to anything, keeping it sterile.
4. Pull the plunger on the syringe towards its maximum reading as 1/2cc or 1cc, allowing the syringe to fill with air. This procedure is also done by drawing the air from the peptide vial by inserting the needle in the vial, but keep it right side up. You can draw the air that way, pulling the syringe from the bottle.
5. Moving forward, insert the needle in the rubber part of the bacteriostatic water, as the syringe is inserted, turn the bacteriostatic water vial upside down, pushing the plunger into the syringe. Slowly draw back the syringe back to its maximum reading so as to allow it to fill with bacteriostatic water.
6. Turn the vial of the bacteriostatic water back to the right side up, removing the syringe afterwards. Take extra caution in order to prevent the needle from contacting with anything else.
7. Insert the bacteriostatic water into the peptide vial. A slow reconstituting is highly recommended so as to avoid adding the bacteriostatic water into the peptide directly. Thus, add the water down the side of the peptide vial. Grab the vial and insert the syringe through its rubber stopper on a certain angle, just enough that the needle could penetrate the rubber. Therefore, it should be angled to the side of the vial.
8. Push down on the plunger slowly in order to allow the bacteriostatic water in entering down the sides of the peptide vial. Take time in doing this.
9. When all the bacteriostatic water is into the vial, it is now time to remove the syringe, gently swirling the vial to allow the peptide in dissolving into the water.
10. Based on the amount of bacteriostatic water and the size of the pin, it is necessary to repeat the 3 to 9 steps, until the correct amount of water is added to the peptide. Aiming for a 2ml of water, alongside a 1/2cc syringe, this procedure should be done in a total of four minutes. But, then using a 1cc syringe, this process should be completed two times in total.
11. When the proper amount of bacteriostatic water is added, it is time to place back the caps on both ends of the syringe. Discard the apparatus properly. Reusing the syringe for injection is never recommended.
Note: The main reason why the syringe should be filled with air, including the insertion of air into the vial, is keeping the pressure in the vial. This allows drawing much easier.
Refrigeration is necessary for certain products. Hence, it is very important to know and understand every peptide, before any purchase and use. However, refrigeration is only necessary after reconstitution. If it needs to be, then do so. Make a complete research work, an in-depth one if possible, allowing any potential user to utilize such product the safest and most proper way. This should also be done in order to max out the potential effects of such products, as positive outcome is always desired by any user.
Over and above, seeking the advice and assistance of the experts in this industry is equally necessary prior to the use and reconstitution of any product, especially the ones involving syringes or injections. This is to ensure that procedures are done properly and completely. For potential users, it is always best to arm oneself with facts and complete knowledge, ensuring correct products, reconstitution procedures, and proper dosage and usage, allowing only the best results.
