While bacteriostatic water is the recommended solution to reconstitute growth hormone peptides, healing peptides and neurotropeptides among others, there is one specific family of peptides that should only be used with Acetic Acid Water.
What is Acetic Water?
Acetic acid is one of the simplest and more common organic acids. It is the chemical responsible for the sour taste of vinegar. It is a weak acid and as such does not completely dissociate in water so the intact and dissociated forms are in equilibrium in solution.
For reconstitution, acetic acid water should have a base deionized/sterile water solution mixed with 0.6% acetic acid.
It is highly recommended that you use Acetic Acid Water to reconstitute all IGF sequence peptides. This is because the amino acid sequence being so fragile for IGF peptides that the alcohol in bacteriostatic water can damage the sequence and render the entire vial ineffective after just a couple of days.
This is why most people mistakenly think they get fake IGF peptides especially the LR3 forms of IGF which are the most fragile sequences. The acetic acid water doesn’t break down the sequence but still provides anti-fungal and antibacterial qualities to help your peptide product remain sterile.
