Cell regeneration is the body’s natural process by which all injuries are healed, and all growth is achieved. The body is naturally programmed to replace or repair missing or damaged cells throughout tissues and organs.
The process of cell regeneration depends wholly on the presence of human growth hormone (HGH) levels sufficient to catalyze regeneration. Without HGH, cell regeneration becomes slower, more difficult, and eventually impossible. Both men and women experience lower HGH as a normal function of aging. But when HGH drops so low that injuries heal slower, the condition is known as growth hormone insufficiency.
Scientists have researched peptide therapies as methods of treating HGH insufficiency and are seeing remarkable outcomes. A peptide is a string of amino acids in a particular sequence that acts both like a protein and like a hormone. There are more than 7,000 peptides that occur naturally in the body. Of those 7,000, sermorelin is one of the most adaptive and powerful peptides.
Sermorelin is an acetate salt derived from an amidated synthetic peptide (GFR 1-29 NH2) that corresponds with the naturally occurring human growth hormone (HGH). The power of sermorelin to improve growth in humans was initially observed in treating children for physiological underdevelopment. Today, it is prescribed to treat HGH insufficiency in adults as well.
Sermorelin is not HGH. It is an HGH secretagogue, meaning that it prompts the body’s natural ability to release more HGH. Sermorelin does this by stimulating the pituitary gland to increase production of the potent peptide.
The symptoms of growth hormone insufficiency include:
- Low Energy
- Increased Body Fat
- Brain Fog
- Muscle Weakness
- Diminished Libido
Because these symptoms often have multiple potential causes, a doctor can help you determine what is happening.
Because every patient is unique and because peptide therapy is a potent treatment, sermorelin is available only by prescription. The doctor will do blood tests to determine the patient’s current level of HGH and other hormones before treatment. Based on this, the doctor will prescribe peptide therapy administered either orally (tablets) or subcutaneously (injections). The normal dosing range is between 0.2mcg and 0.3mcg daily at bedtime, injected and using different injection sites from time to time.
Most patients begin to see results within a week and see hose results increase for several months. HGH is responsible for regulating red blood cell production, controlling inflammation, regulating fat cells and lean muscle, mitigating osteoporosis, and increasing testosterone. So patients report many different benefits from starting sermorelin therapy:
- Increased lean body mass
- Greater strength and energy
- Higher workout performance
- Faster recovery periods between workouts
- Reduction in body fat
- Accelerated wound healing
- Higher bone mineral density
- Better quality sleep
Side effects are rarely seen and tend to be manageable. Tell your doctor if your sermorelin therapy results in a rash or hives, swelling around the mouth, or difficulty breathing.
