What is GW-501516?
GW-501516 or GW-501 is research chemical which has recently been discovered to be a very interesting compound which seems to activate the same pathways you would get through regular exercise. Although only licenced for in vitro (outside living organism), some licenced studies have shown that it increases exercise endurance more than any other compound when combined with AICAR.

It seems that this compound may be the so called “magic bullet” that people suffering from obesity could benefit from should the initial in vitro studies prove satisfactory. The large pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline have begun investigations into GW-501516 because it has shown to reduce the accumulation of fat in mice who have been fed a very high fat diet. Furthermore, it seems it shifts the bodies metabolism to burn the fat reserves instead of the carbohydrates or muscle protein. It has also been shown that GW-501516 increases muscle mass, and may be one of the best current avenues to target obesity.

What is GW-501516 used for?
Due to GW-501516 being so new, it is an area of research that scientists must build their own hypothesis for mechanisms of action. Since it seems to work by activating the AMP-activated protein kinase, it may be suitable to add GW-501516 to cells cultures in vitro and measure the enzyme activity. It is also hypothesised to have an action as a PPARβ modulator, so research into the modulation of Peroxisomes for which PPARβ control the size and number of, may be useful.

It may also be used as a reference sample for GC/MS, NMR and FTIR analysis catalogues. Chemistry students may use it as a primary reagent should they so wish.

Buy GW-501516 from have managed to secure a confirmed laboratory who have managed to completely synthesis this exciting new chemical for research purposes. At this time we are simply waiting on the purity analysis to be completed before we make GW-501516 available to the public.

All orders of GW-501516 are strictly not for human consumption and must only be used for legitimate research chemical purposes by customers over the age of 18.
