What is Sermorelin Acetate?
Sermorelin Acetate is a compound similar in structure to growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). Sermorelin has been known to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone. It’s a a bioidentical synthetic hormone peptide sequence comprised of 29 amino acids
Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat children but many functional medicine doctors are using it off label to optimize growth hormone levels of adult patients. Unlike HGH, Sermorelin is affordable, and can be used off label.
- Sermorelin Aceteate is best prescribed to taken at least 30 minutes before or after food consumption
2. Sermorelin Acetate is normally prescribed at night to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland
during REM sleep
What forms of Sermorelin are available?
Sermorelin is available in lyophilized injectable form and oral preparations.
What are GHRP 2 and 6? How are they used with Sermorelin?
GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are forms of Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides. Growth hormone releasing peptides stimulate
the pituitary gland’s natural production of endogenous human growth hormone. Sermorelin is an analogue of
growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). Synergistic release of GH from the pituitary gland is initiated when
Sermorelin is concurrently administered with a growth hormone releasing peptide
(GHRP-6 or GHRP-2).
Why Would I Want to Use Sermorelin?
Based on the literature, Sermorelin has been shown to be effective in raising growth hormone/ insulin like growth
factor – 1 levels which helps to:
Increase bone density Regenerate nerve tissues
Strengthen the cardiovascular system Strengthen the immune system
Increase muscle mass Enhance energy levels
Improve ability to burn fat Improve cognition and memory
Increase sex drive Improve bone and mineral density
Improve recovery and repair from injuries
Patient Benefits Over Time
Benefits for patients on Sermorelin shown over the first eight weeks of protocol may include improvements in:
Week 1 Quality of sleep
Recovery from workouts
What You Need to Know
Sermorelin should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Always tell your physician about all medications
and supplements, especially corticosteroids and thyroid medications, that you are taking. Common side effects of
Sermorelin include reactions at the injection site, such as pain, redness or swelling; and less than 1 percent of patients
