Facts About Sermorelin & Human Growth Hormone
What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin Acetate is Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH). It stimulates the pituitary gland to produce more Human Growth Hormones. Sermorelin is a bio-identical hormone, meaning it is a hormone identical in molecular structure to the hormones naturally present in the body. It therefore acts like hormones produced by the body. Unlike other forms of growth hormone treatment, Sermorelin increases the body’s production of Human Growth Hormone safely and effectively.
What is Human Growth Hormone?
Human growth hormone (often abbreviated as HGH or simply GH) is naturally produced in the pituitary gland and is responsible for cell growth and regeneration. Growth hormone plays an essential role in increasing lean muscle mass and bone density while also being important to maintaining the health of all tissues in the body – vital organs and the brain included. In children, growth hormone is vital to normal growth and development. However, after the body reaches adulthood, the body’s production of HGH declines. In the mature adult, production of growth hormone is significantly decreased.
A form of synthetic injectable HGH is often used to treat specific types of growth hormone deficiency in children and adults. However, direct growth hormone injections of this type are controversial when used for anti-aging therapy rather than for treating these illnesses. Therefore, Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy (which is not direct human growth hormone injections) is a preferred method of increasing HGH as it stimulates natural production of growth hormone through the pituitary gland.
Common Benefits of Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy
As we age, the pituitary gland produces less and less hormones. This leaves many individuals asking how to increase growth hormone. The purpose of Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy is to cause the pituitary gland to increase growth hormone production in the bodies of aging men and women to a more youthful level, thereby reversing many of the effects of aging. The common benefits of Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy are:
- Increased production of human growth hormone
- Increased development of lean body mass
- Reduced body fat through lipolysis
- Increased energy, vitality, endurance & strength
- Accelerated healing from wounds or surgery
- Strengthened heart
- Enhanced immune system
- Improved sleep quality
- And more.
As this list indicates, the effects of Sermorelin growth hormone therapy and the increased human growth hormone production can be quite profound, helping to optimize an individual’s overall feeling of vigor and well-being.
How Do I Take Sermorelin?
Sermorelin growth hormone therapy is given to the patient by prescription in a multi-dosed, injectable vial. The vial contains a powder disc which contains Sermorelin Acetate. Bacteriostatic Water is mixed with the Sermorelin to provide solution for injection. (Instructions on proper handling and storage are provided with the prescription)
It is very easy to self-administer a dose of Sermorelin. It is injected into the body fat, subcutaneously (just under the skin, not into the vein or muscle), using a very small needle. Sermorelin growth hormone therapy shots are initially prescribed for six days per week, but they are decreased in frequency over time.
When Do I Take Sermorelin?
Since growth hormone is mostly released during sleep, the best time to take Sermorelin growth hormone therapy shots is before bedtime. Also, Sermorelin promotes sleep, so taking it during the day can make you tired.
What is the Normal Sermorelin Dosage?
The normal Sermorelin acetate dosage is in the range of 250 – 500 mcg per night. Your InShape Medical medical provider will determine the appropriate dosage for you based upon your individual test results, age, height, weight, and exam.
How is Sermorelin Therapy Effectiveness Measured?
Your provider will monitor your symptoms and blood work to evaluate the effectiveness of the therapy. But of course, your personal experience with feeling a decline in symptoms is very important. Patients with sleep problems often notice significantly improved sleep in just the first few weeks of treatment. And patients with relatively normal sleep patterns often notice improved quality of sleep. At the same time, patients typically report increased energy levels and improved mood. Within the first several months of Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy patients typically notice positive changes in their bodies, such as better muscle tone and a leaner appearance, as well as better skin tone.
How Long Does Sermorelin Take to Work?
As noted above, certain benefits of treatment are seen within the first several weeks. Other benefits of Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy take longer to notice, typically 3-6 months. Levels need to be sustained over time to get the full benefits of treatment, such as: increased lean muscle mass; reduced body fat; increased skin density and collagen production; increased bone density; enhanced immune system and cardiovascular function, pancreatic and liver function;and optimal increases in energy and vitality.
Do I Need to Take Sermorelin Forever to Keep Seeing Results?
Actually, no. After the initial “loading” period of 3-6 months, and optimal benefits are achieved, the patient goes on a maintenance program that no longer requires daily injections of Sermorelin. This also reduces the cost of the treatment plan.
Sermorelin Growth Hormone Therapy has an ongoing effect in which optimal HGH levels can be sustained long after the last injection. Just like synthetic HGH, Sermorelin initially must be injected every day. Unlike synthetic HGH, once optimal levels are sustained with Sermorelin, injection frequencies can be decreased or stopped altogether. Once results are achieved, patients are then typically switched to a maintenance protocol eliminating the need for ongoing daily injections while reducing the total cost of therapy.
InShape Medical restores optimal levels of Human Growth Hormone by utilizing comprehensive and effective protocols. Depending on the individual patient, the protocol may also include bio-identical hormones like testosterone, which may further increase lean muscle tissue, reduce body fat, and improve overall energy, health and longevity. Additionally, injections of vitamins, lipotropic agents, and amino acids may also help to optimize the benefits of the therapy.
