Sermorelin is a secretagogue of human growth hormone (HGH) meaning that it stimulates the release of HGH in our bodies.
Sermorelin is a bioidentical peptide that corresponds to the amino-terminal segment of the naturally occurring human growth hormone-releasing hormone.
What is human growth hormone and why is it important?
HGH is responsible for stimulating the growth, healing, and renewal of all the cells in our bodies. We have high levels of HGH as children and adolescents to enable us to grow and mature into adults. HGH still plays an important role in the repair and regeneration of human tissue throughout our lives.
Until we are around 30 years of age, we have spent most of our lives with fairly high levels of HGH. By that time, our HGH levels are only about 20 percent of the peak levels we had during childhood. The reduced levels are no longer enough HGH to repair all the damage that is occurring to our bodies.
After the age of 30, our HGH levels continue to decline by about 12 to 15 percent per decade. As our HGH levels continue to decline, the damage that we call aging continues to accelerate.
HGH decline is not the only cause of the manifestations of aging. Even with HGH levels of a young adult, we would continue to experience the effects of aging, however, those effects would be greatly diminished until we reached a very advanced age.
HGH does not affect the root cause of aging, as measured by maximum lifespan, but it can certainly affect many of the manifestations of aging. By increasing the levels of HGH in our bodies, we can slow or even reverse many of the manifestations of aging.
Ideally, increasing our HGH should begin at about the age of 30, but increasing HGH in older people can reverse the manifestations of aging by 5 to 15 years or more. There is no other single therapy currently available that can have the impact on the aging body that HGH can.
Here are a few of the manifestations of aging resulting from a decrease in HGH:
- loss of muscle mass;
- loss of bone density;
- joint pain;
- increased body fat;
- thinning, wrinkled skin;
- hair loss;
- cognitive decline;
- reduced sex drive;
- poor sleep;
- cardiovascular decline;
- a decline in the immune system.
Scientifically Sermorelin is referred to as GRF 1-29 NH 2 which stands for growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF) with the numbers (1-29) indicating the amino acid chain that is responsible for the effect of the Sermorelin.
Sermorelin IS NOT HGH; Sermorelin is a bio-identical hormone that acts as a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) that has been genetically engineered to stimulate the secretion of growth hormone (HGH) from the pituitary gland.
As we get older, the hormones produced by the anterior pituitary are depleted. It has now been shown that GHRH can restore the GH producing cells to a youthful level causing elevation of levels of IGF-1.

Possible Benefits of Sermorelin Injections:
Increase development and cut of lean muscles – because muscles become larger using Sermorelin shots, and the fat melts away, it gives the appearance of being leaner and meaner.
Improved recovery time from working out and physical activity – one of the biggest setbacks of aging is that it takes longer to recover from muscle building and working out. Sermorelin shrinks the recovery time from injury and physically strenuous activities.
Increase vigor, improve stamina and up-regulate vitality – a rising sense of zest and zeal inexplicably rises in people who use Sermorelin. Suddenly you feel a sense that you want to seize life, you find you have a greater capacity for getting things done and you develop a go get it done attitude.
Melt belly fat and adipose tissue on the hips, thighs, and buttocks – a very place men and women accumulate fat, is exactly where Sermorelin seems to melt away these problem areas.
Bone strength and bone mineral density composite improve – our bones become lighter and frailer as we age because we lose our capacity to hold the mineral density in our very bones. Women more than men suffer from osteoporosis, and Sermorelin has been shown in some women to have a protective capacity in these regards.
Regulation of other hormone symphonies improves
Boost metabolism, improve circulation – one of the most noticeable things about Sermorelin is how it helps people to lose weight safely. Although not promoted as a weight loss medication, through the increase in muscle mass and the reduction in fat, the visual results are impressive.
Sleep, a quality that deteriorates with age, plays a very important role in the amount of human growth hormone our body produces. The majority of our natural HGH production is known to occur during deep sleep. Because the body produces HGH during deep sleep, fewer hours of sleep and poor sleeping patterns result in a low production of HGH.
Sermorelin therapy promotes longer, deeper sleep and improved sleeping patterns. Production of HGH during the sleep cycle becomes dramatically improved. This deep restful sleep and increased production of HGH enhances the body’s ability to better recover and regenerate from daily life and exercise.
