Sermorelin Peptide Therapy A safer, more effective alternative to HGH
Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) similar to the hormone that your body produces naturally. Today Sermorelin is showing promising results in healthy adults that want leaner muscle mass, less fat. Sermorelin comes with significantly fewer risks and side effects that traditional non-FDA approved HGH for performance enhancements.
When injected into the body, it causes the release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland. Sermorelin injections help to counteract decreases in muscle mass and bone density by stimulating the body’s natural production of growth hormone.
Benefits of Sermorelin
Sermorelin stimulates receptors in the brain to naturally release growth hormones that promote building lean muscle, reducing fat, and improving performance.
- Aids in the development of lean body mass and new muscle cells.
- Reduce body fat.
- Increase energy and vitality.
- Improves ability to concentrate.
- Increase strength and endurance.
- Accelerates healing from wounds or surgery.
- Improved cardiovascular function.
- Enhances the immune system.
- Improves sleep quality.
- Increases calcium retention and increases bone density.
HGH vs Peptides Peptides offer the same benefits as HGH but without the risks
|Effect on HGH Levels||Promotes unnatural HGH Levels Can shutdown natural HGH production||Promotes natural release of HGH Levels Promotes natural HGH production|
|Effect on Pituitary Gland||Can negatively impact pituitary function||Supports pituitary function|
|Safety||HGH levels drop when therapy is stopped High risk of overdose Risk of Tachyphylaxis Associated with a range of side-effects.||HGH production continues for a period even after the therapy is stopped Very low risk of overdose No risk of Tachyphylaxis Minimal side-effects.|
|Accessibility||Controlled substance, hard to access legally||Readily available through legal means|
|Cost||Higher costs||Lower costs|
|Benefits||All the benefits of healthy HGH levels||Same benefits as HGH but without the risks|
Is Sermorelin therapy the same as HGH therapy?
No, Sermorelin is a growth hormone secretagogue, which means that it stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone. Sermorelin is a small peptide containing only 29 amino acids, whereas HGH (human growth hormone) is a much larger molecule containing 191 amino acids.
Is Sermorelin therapy the same as "HGH" releasers?
No, the over the counter “HGH” releasers are usually the amino acids L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-ornithine, glycine, L-dopa, as well as such substances as ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate and the herbs macuna pruriens and tribulus terrestris. While high doses of these compounds sometimes elicit release of HGH from the pituitary gland, the effect is non-specific. In other words, they create a general effect on brain activity, just as exercise does, that sometimes causes HGH to be released. However, the effect is intermittent and unreliable since it does not work through any receptor specific process on the pituitary gland. In addition, high doses of amino acids can produce kidney problems presenting a risk for the regular use of such products. In contrast, Sermorelin initiates its action exactly the same as that used by naturally occurring growth hormone releasing hormone. Furthermore, it has an excellent safety profile with little side effects
Why consider Sermorelin therapy as an HGH therapy alternative?
For several reasons, including the fact that it produces the same effects on body composition and other benefits of HGH, but in addition, its effects are regulated at the level of the pituitary gland by negative feedback and by release of somatostatin so that safety concerns associated the HGH overdosing are minimized or completely avoided. Tissue exposure to HGH released by the pituitary under the influence of Sermorelin is episodic not “square wave” preventing tachphylaxis by mimicking normal physiology. By stimulating the pituitary, Sermorelin preserves more of the growth hormone neuroendocrine axis that is the first to fail during aging.
Is Sermorelin injected like HGH?
Currently, the only method for effectively administering Sermorelin is by subcutaneous injection. To avoid bruising and soreness, it’s best to switch up the location of the injection place.
What is the proper dosage for Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is usually administered once a day, ideally at night. Your doctor will determine your dosage and length of treatment based on your individual factors.
Who should avoid Sermorelin?
- People who are allergic to Sermorelin
- People with Hypothyroidism
- Women who are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
- Women who are breastfeeding
What are the Side Effects?
The most common side effect of Sermorelin is caused by its injection under your skin. You may experience any of the following at the site of injection:
