Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) which is a hormone that tells the body to produce HGH.
Sermorelin is not a human growth hormone but it is a secretagogue, which means this hormone stimulates the production of another hormone. Specifically, sermorelin tells the pituitary gland to promote and secrete growth hormone.
The human brain produces sermorelin naturally. Sermorelin stimulates a natural process, which provides the body with the benefits of a human growth hormone without the risks of introducing a hormone into the body.
Dosage and Use of Sermorelin
The recommended dosage is 0.2 – 0.3 mcg by subcutaneous injection at bedtime. Consumers should consult with their weight loss professional for calculating the optimal dosage, depending on the patient’s personal health and needs.
Reconstitute sermorelin by injecting the diluting liquid into the vial of sermorelin. Direct the flow of liquid against the glass vial wall rather than squirting the diluents directly into the sermorelin. Gently swirl the vial with a rotary motion to dissolve the contents completely. Do not use if you can see particles in the reconstituted solution, or if the reconstituted sermorelin solution appears cloudy.
Wipe the rubber vial stopper with antiseptic solution before puncturing the stopper with a needle to prevent possible contamination. To reduce the risk of infection, use sterile disposable syringes and needles. Use small syringes to make drawing the prescribed dose from the vial more accurate.
The body produces human growth hormone at night, usually in the seventh or eighth hour of sleep, so it is best to administer sermorelin at night.
For best results, rotate injection sites periodically.
Benefits of Sermorelin
First developed in the 1970s, sermorelin is useful as an anti-aging therapy. It also promotes weight loss.
Other benefits include:
- increases in the development of lean muscle growth through the generation of new muscle cells;
- improvements in workout and recovery;
- reductions in body fat through fat breakdown, known as lipolysis;
- increases in energy, strength, and stamina levels;
- increases in muscle mass and definition;
- improved endurance;
- accelerated healing from wounds or after surgery;
- strengthening of the immune system;
- improved regulation of other hormones;
- increases in Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) production to build muscle mass;
- boosts in healthy levels of growth hormone;
- increases in mineralization of bone density and bone health.
All medications, including sermorelin, can produce side effects. The most common side effect associated with sermorelin is a reaction at the injection site. Reactions include pain, swelling, and redness. These side effects are usually mild and typically go away after a few days.
Sermorelin is not associated with a high risk of side effects because the body produces sermorelin naturally, so it has natural processes to keep sermorelin levels in check. Unlike injections of human growth hormones, which can remain high then drop suddenly, sermorelin stimulates a constant supply of natural human growth hormone.
