SERMORELIN HGH THERAPY
Home | SERMORELIN HGH THERAPY
Sermorelin HGH therapy has become a popular treatment. Sermorelin HGH Therapy has evolved as a popular alternative to HGH as it enables patients to experience the benefits of Growth Hormone 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.
Sermorelin vs. HGH
In HGH Therapy, the main difference is Sermorelin is a secretagogue. This means, it is not growth hormone itself, but it actually stimulates the pituitary gland to produce more growth hormone naturally. This gives the body the benefits of hGH without giving the actual hormone. This bypass of injected hGH prevents many problems.
Unlike Sermorelin, when you use HGH injections, it accumulates in the body. Levels of exogenous hormone increase for a while and then drop back down suddenly. Patients taking HGH often experience benefits for a period of time and then the effects abruptly stop. It then takes more and more medication to produce the same original effect, and taking too much can lead to severe HGH side effects.
Because Sermorelin stimulates growth hormone production naturally, it is typically much safer than HGH. With Sermorelin, the body attempts to self regulate how much or how high hormone levels can get. This type of regulation is referred to as normal feedback; a protection mechanism of the body. When levels, get too high, normal feedback mechanisms help bring levels to a more safe and steady state. This regulation of the body prevents the “square wave” pattern seen with HGH, thus preventing sudden drops of hormone levels.
There are over the counter secretagogues that are said to increase HGH levels much like Sermorelin. These products such as L-glutamine, L-dopa, L-arganine, L-orirnithine, glycine, ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate and herbs such as Macuna pruriens and Tribulus terrestris are amino acids that, in high doses, may elicit a small release of HGH from the pituitary. However, their effect is non-specific and typically intermittent and unreliable because they do not work on any specific receptor on the pituitary gland. High doses of amino acids can also produce kidney problems. Because Sermorelin’s action mimics the body’s naturally occurring growth hormone releasing process, this is not an issue.
The only method of administration currently available for Sermorelin is by subcutaneous injection. Even though HGH and Sermorelin work at different places in the body (Sermorelin at the pituitary and HGH at the liver), the dosages are comparable. Typically, Sermorelin is prescribed in micrograms and HGH in international units (IU). Sermorelin cost is also much lower than HGH.
The timing of the daily Sermorelin injection is also important. Sermorelin is given once a day at bedtime. Timing the injection prior to sleep is important because Sermorelin complements the body’s natural production and release of Growth Releasing Factor during sleep.
In the battle of Sermorelin vs HGH, it is clear using Sermorelin in place of HGH has numerous benefits. It not only is cost effective and easier to obtain, but it is more importantly a safer option for increased growth hormone production within the body without the side effects.
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, hormonal imbalance and the effect that growth hormone therapy has on 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.
