During our younger years, there is an abundant production of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) which is used to sustain and nourish the function, form and overall health of our body.
However, as we age, GHRH declines which results to a decrease in the secretion of pituitary human growth hormone (HGH). Eventually, the HGH levels goes down and production stops. When this happens, the HGH insufficiencies increase and age-related symptoms such as brittle and dry hair, dry skin, lethargy, reduction of lean body mass, poor cognitive function, and slower or difficult recovery from injuries, surgeries and other strenuous activities are started to be experienced. As a result, stamina, vitality and overall health is diminished.
Sermorelin is a bio-identical hormone peptide containing the first 29 amino acids that make up the growth hormone in our bodies. Considered as a revolutionary drug, Sermorelin addresses aging problems by stimulating the pituitary gland to naturally produce and secrete increased amounts of growth hormone, which then aids in an array of beneficial results such as increased energy levels, enhanced sleep quality, strengthened bone and muscle, regulated cellular activities and reversed aging process.
Due to its powerful and significant effect on HGH secretion, Sermorelin is able to restore and regenerate the HGH levels and imitate its effects, boosting one’s health span and significantly improving quality of life. Approved by the FDA under the brand name Geref and available only by prescription, Sermorelin is a safe and effective alternative to HGH without its harmful side effects and high cost. It can be used by both children and adults to treat growth hormone deficiency. Note however that though considered as the best HGH supplement in the market, it will not be as effective in people with high HGH levels deficiency. It is then recommended that an HGH therapy should be done first prior to starting Sermorelin treatment.
The growth hormone releasing hormone or GHRH is naturally processed in the hypothalamus. It sends signals to the pituitary gland which then controls and regulates the natural release of growth hormone among many other functions. However, problems may occur in the function of GHRH. There are instances wherein it is not being released enough, problem with the destination pituitary gland occurs, or the pituitary gland does not function properly. When the mechanism to produce GHRH malfunctions, the process of aging starts at a faster rate. This is where Sermorelin treatment comes in. Sermorelin Acetate works as a biologically engineered version of GHRH, imitating the function and effects of the hypothalamic peptide. GHRH travels to the pituitary gland, attaches to its receptors and signals to produce HGH naturally. On the other hand, when Sermorelin is administered, it travels through the bloodstream, binds to the GHRH receptors and stimulates the somatotroph cells to produce and secrete HGH. As a result, Sermorelin achieves similar effects of HGH such as enhanced energy levels, increased sex drive, increased muscle mass and the aging process is slowed down or reversed, without the negative effects of HGH.
Sermorelin injections are safe to be taken by the following:
However, should you have any of the following conditions, inform your medical provider first prior to starting this peptide therapy:
The goal of Sermorelin therapy is to induce the pituitary gland to produce more HGH naturally. By doing so, several issues that develop due to HGH deficiency can be reversed, stopped and treated. Some of the benefits of Sermorelin injections include:
Sermorelin Acetate can be used as treatment for conditions deemed necessary by your doctor including the following:
All medicines may cause side effects. For Sermorelin, no generalized allergic reactions have been reported. Only minor side effects were observed as follows.
Should you experience allergic reactions or persistent and severe side effects as stated below, seek medical attention immediately
Always inform your doctor or medical provider about your previous and existing health conditions including allergies, medicines, supplements or vitamins that you are currently taking or have taken previously to avoid any contraindications. If you are taking alcohol, using tobacco or any of the below medicines, inform your doctor right away:
