What is AOD9604?

One weight loss approach that has proven successful is called AOD9604, which is a modified form of amino acids 176-191 of the GH (growth hormone) polypeptide. It is FDA approved and often marketed as an anti-obesity drug.

Investigators at Monash University discovered that the fat-reducing effects of GH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the GH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 176-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the GH molecule and appears not to affect growth or insulin resistance. This is a safe and viable option for many patients due to its many benefits.

Benefits of AOD9604

  • Reduces Body Fat
  • Regulates Fat Metabolism
  • Prevents Fat Storage
  • Stimulate Fat Release
  • Imitates Natural Growth Hormones
  • Does Not Affect Blood Sugar
  • Reduces Abdominal Fat
  • Possesses Regenerative Properties
  • Mobilizes Stored Energy During Fasting or Exercise

Side effects can include:

AOD9604 is typically tolerated well with little to no side effects. Some patients may experience minor side effects, including dizziness, nausea, or fatigue. If you notice these side effects and feel they have increased after taking this medication, consult with your doctor.

How AOD9604 Works

AOD9604 works by mimicking the way natural Growth Hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that are seen with unmodified Growth Hormone

Like Growth Hormone, AOD9604 stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown or destruction of fat) and inhibits lipogenesis (the transformation of nonfat food materials into body fat) both in laboratory testing and in animals and humans. Recent findings have shown, in addition to its fat loss properties, AOD9604 processes many other regenerative properties associated with growth hormone

AOD stimulates the pituitary gland like HGH and other growth hormones to speed up the metabolism and increase weight loss in a shorter period than just diet and exercise alone.


One of the great things noted about AOD9604 is that it comes in a variety of forms of administration, such as nasal spray, dissolvable tablet (Troche or RDT), and injection (subcutaneous injections using an insulin syringe). Dosage varies by individual and the method of administration. However, here are some basic guidelines:

AOD9604 in nasal spray form comes in 1000mcg/mL 20 mg in a 10mL VIAL. Do 1-2 pumps in a single nostril daily Monday – Friday.

AOD-9604 in the form of a dissolvable tablet (RDT & Troches) comes in 500mcg. Take one dissolvable tablet daily Monday – Friday.

AOD-9604 in the form of an injection (Lyophilized) is 6 mg /10 ml. Reconstitution is with 8 mL of bacteriostatic water and injected 40 units in the morning 30 minutes before food, Monday – Friday. (Equivalent to 20 days of 300 mcg per dose.)

The History of AOD9604

AOD9604 is a modified version of the HGH fragment 176-191 peptide (contains a disulfide bridge) and thus a derivative of human growth hormone (HGH). Originally developed as an anti-obesity drug due to its lipolytic (fat burning) properties, AOD9604 has shown benefit in studies of heart disease, osteoarthritis/cartilage repair, and metabolic syndrome. In addition, AOD9604 stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown or destruction of fat) and inhibits lipogenesis in animal studies.

AOD9604 was initially developed as an analog of HGH with the express purpose of fighting fat. Phase 2B clinical trials were completed in Australia, testing the drug in 300 obese individuals. The peptide was administered once daily for 12 weeks, and the results showed that the drug tripled weight loss when compared to the placebo and the rate of weight loss remained steady during the trial period. This indicates that resistance to the peptide is unlikely to occur and that longer-term treatment would result in even greater weight loss.

When Will I See Results?

You will feel results before you see them physically. You should notice an increase in your energy levels and an improvement within your body. It can take up to 12 weeks to see significant weight loss but stick with the regimen, and you should experience noticeable results. The best part of this program is that the weight loss is permanent as this medication directly targets fat cells only in a process called lipolysis.
