Sermorelin Peptide Therapy | How does it work?
What is Sermorelin Peptide Therapy?
Sermorelin Acetate is an FDA approved medication that causes the release of Growth Hormone from the pituitary gland. As we age, the HGH production and secretion from the pituitary slows, and is in part responsible for the aging process. Through the use of Sermorelin, individuals are able to effectively and naturally increase HGH levels. HGH is thought of, by many doctors, as the ultimate anti-aging hormone, due to it’s many possitive effects at the right dosages in the body.

What is Sermorelin Acetate?
As stated at the beginning of the article, Sermorelin Acetate is a synthetic version of a naturally ocurring hormone that causes the secretion of HGH from the pituitary gland. This is why Sermorelin, along with a number of other similar peptides are grouped into what are called “Secretagogues”. The pituitary works by releaseing HGH into the body, after which the pituitary will then replenish HGH stores within the pituitary. So, by increasing the frequency and/or the amount of HGH released from the pituitary gland, Sermorelin actually causes the pituitary to create additional HGH.
How does Sermorelin Work?
Sermorelin is not HGH, but it does help to improve HGH levels in a more natural way, compared to HGH therapy. Sermorelin is considered a “secretagogue”, which means that it causes the secretion of HGH from the pituitary into the blood stream. As stated above, this HGH release from the pituitary will then stimulate the pituitary gland to produce more HGH for the next secretion. For most individuals, this secretion can be artifically stimulated up to 3 times per day, although we recommend using Sermorelin only at night, for most clients, as this mimics the bodies natural patterns. By increasing HGH, we can effectively improve a number of health markers in our patients. To learn more about the benefits of Sermorelin and increased HGH levels, read on.
What are the benefits of Sermorelin?
HGH is responsible for cell health in the body, which means the benefits of improved HGH levels have a number of possitive effects. HGH has been widely studdied, and has been considered by many doctors as the ultimate anti-aging hormone, with many proven benefits. Some of the more notable benefits of HGH are:
- Decreased body fat
- Increased muscle mass
- Increased strength
- Improved energy
- Improved quality of sleep
- Helps combat insomnia
- Increases physical and mental performance
- Enhances calcium retention
- Bone density Improves
- Improves immune function
- Improves fat burning
- Improves skin elasticity
- Aids in connective tissue repair post injury
- Contributes to the health of Hair and Nails
Sermorelin vs HGH therapy
The benefit of Sermorelin over HGH therapy, is that while Sermorelin will increase HGH by causing the Pituitary to create more HGH, levels will never exceed healthy levels in the body. This is why Sermorelin is the choice of most doctors to increase HGH levels, and overall health of their patients. Sermorelin offers a safer alternative to HGH injections.
