Is Sermorelin Therapy Right For Me?

Is Sermorelin Therapy Right For Me?

The body naturally produces human growth hormone (HGH) in the pituitary gland. HGH is responsible for the growth and regeneration of cells. Without these, bone density and muscle mass would not be supported. This hormone is also responsible for maintaining the health of tissue, including your brain and other vital organs and plays an essential role in how your body uses food for energy (your metabolism). During the day, the amount of HGH in the blood changes and it is also affected by sleep, exercise, diet and emotional stress. There are ample amounts of human growth hormone produced during youth in order for the body to sustain health and basic, normal functions, including sleep. However, as you age, the pituitary gland slowly begins to reduce the amount of HGH it produces, resulting in weight gain, signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles) and a decrease in muscle and bone mass. So, in order to prevent the effects of aging, including weight gain, it is necessary to increase the production of HGH and an effective way to do this is with Sermorelin.

What is Sermorelin?

Sermorelin, first developed in the 70’s, is a medication that helps to stimulate the production of your body’s own natural human growth hormone by the pituitary gland. It is a fairly small peptide that contains 29 amino acids, which encourage the pituitary gland to increase the production of HGH. When Sermorelin is compounded for injections, it is combined with a growth hormone releasing peptide, which helps to “wake up” the pituitary gland, so it will once again begin the production of HGH. The decline of HGH production during aging often results in sleep problems, skin issues, increased body fat, joint pain, or other age-related problems. As it relates to weight loss, the biggest benefit of Sermorelin is an increased metabolism. An increase in HGH aids in the breaking down of food for energy, resulting in a more effortless weight loss journey.

For Sermorelin to be beneficial, it must be used appropriately. So, it is important to visit your medical professional to determine if Sermorelin is a good option for you.

Benefits of Sermorelin

As your growth hormone levels decline, there is a significant decline in the ability for your metabolism to receive the signal to process the food you consume. This results in proteins, lipids (fats) and carbohydrates being turned into fat instead of fuel. This fat accumulates in all areas of your body, but especially in the abdominal region as you age. Belly fat is thought to be the most dangerous type of fat, because it can crowd the internal organs as well as secrete aromatase, an enzyme that ultimately increases the accumulation of belly fat. Those deficient in HGH may also have an excess of cortisol, a stress hormone that stimulates ghrelin. Ghrelin is the hunger hormone that increases the need for additional food in order to increase energy. As your body responds to ghrelin, you eat more, which your body turns to fat due to a reduction in HGH. Thus, from a weight loss standpoint, the greatest benefits of Sermorelin is an increased production of your body’s natural HGH, which helps you lose the excess weight even as you age.

Other benefits of Sermorelin include:

  • Improved immune function
  • Increased strength and energy
  • Improved mental and physical performance
  • Improved wound healing
  • Increased retention of calcium and improved bone density
  • Improved heart function
  • Improved quality of sleep 

For Sermorelin to be beneficial, it must be used appropriately. So, it is important to visit your medical professional to determine if Sermorelin is a good option for you. Your doctor will do a complete physical examination to make sure you don’t have any preexisting adverse conditions that could make this treatment unsafe. You'll work together to come up with an appropriate plan and dosage that is the most beneficial for your needs.
