Sermorelin GH Therapy: The New Wave
Growth Hormone (GH) therapy has been a popular treatment since the 1990’s. Today, Sermorelin GH Therapy has become a popular alternative as it enables patients to experience the benefits of GH therapy without the risks or side effects.
What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is a growth hormone releasing factor that contains the first 29 amino acids that make up the growth hormone produced in our bodies. This contributes to Sermorelin’s function as a growth hormone secretagogue (a substance which causes another substance to be secreted). In this case, the substance whose secretion is promoted is growth hormone. For this reason, Sermorelin is often referred to as a Growth Hormone stimulator and is considered an excellent alternative to the use of HGH.
Advantages of Sermorelin
Sermorelin promotes the healthy function of the pituitary gland, the gland that is responsible for our body’s production of growth hormone during the aging process. Basically, it optimizes the pituitary gland’s ability to do its job, naturally.
Sermorelin therapy promotes the release of growth hormone in our bodies, naturally. Sermorelin does not shut down the body’s own production of growth hormone, but instead supports pituitary function and natural production of growth hormone.
Sermorelin is generally accepted for medical use, largely due to its safety profile and is commonly prescribed within health and wellness protocols.
Benefits of Sermorelin
The easiest way to understand the potential benefits of Sermorelin therapy is to look at the symptoms of growth hormone decline and the effect that growth hormone therapy has upon those symptoms.
Changes in Body Composition
Changes in body composition due to decreasing levels of growth hormone are reflected by decreased muscle mass and increased body fat percentages. Correcting Growth Hormone levels has been shown to reverse this state by increasing muscle mass and reducing body fat percentages.
Bone Mineral Density
Research has shown that growth hormone deficiency in adults contributes to a reduction in bone density and therefore increased risk of osteoporosis. Growth hormone replacement therapy for greater than 12 months has resulted in improved bone mineral density and hence, lower risk of osteoporosis.
As growth hormone therapy corrects body composition and improves muscle mass, muscle strength also improves.
As Sermorelin contributes to improvements in bone mineral density and increased muscle mass and strength, it can also contribute to the prevention of joint deterioration that is a feature of arthritis. Optimal growth hormone levels are also essential for the health of connective tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and the synovial tissues found in joints.
As Sermorelin contributes to increases in bone density, muscle mass and body fat reduction; exercise performance increases have been a demonstrated benefit of this therapy.
Growth hormone therapy has been shown to increase protein synthesis, increase fat oxidation, normalize carbohydrate metabolism and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol. These favorable effects on metabolism may in part explain some of the other benefits of hGH including improved heart health and body composition.
A reduction in skin thickness and all-important skin collagen is another result of growth hormone deficiency. Both conditions are improved by growth hormone therapy.
Many individuals have found an improvement in energy, libido and sexual performance following growth hormone therapy, some men even claiming an improvement in problems with premature ejaculation.
Quality of Life
Sermorelin treatment benefits include improvements in mood, energy and general feelings of well being.
