The Purpose of Sermorelin Acetate Therapy
The purpose of Sermorelin Acetate Therapy is to cause the pituitary gland to increase growth hormone production in humans. The purpose of adult Sermorelin growth hormone therapy is to reverse the effects of aging and secure the extensive treatment benefits described below.
What is Sermorelin Acetate GH-RH?
Sermorelin Acetate is a "growth hormone-releasing hormone" (GHRH). This prescription drug is compounded by U.S. pharmacies pursuant to a physician's prescription and is patient self-injected subcutaneously. It stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts of human growth hormone. Sermorelin Acetate is a truncated analog of a growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF 1-44) that is naturally produced by the brain to stimulate pituitary production of human growth hormone. The increased volume of human growth hormone (hGH) produced by the pituitary gland causes an increase in the production of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver and results in the benefits of treatment provided to the adult patient.
Benefits of Sermorelin Acetate Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone Therapy
Increases the development of lean body mass through the development of new muscle cells
Reduces body fat through lipolysis
Increases energy and vitality
Accelerates healing from wounds or surgery
Strengthens the heart
Enhances the immune system
Increases IGF-1 production
Improves sleep quality
Increases calcium retention, and strengthens and increases the mineralization of bone or bone density.
Increases protein synthesis and stimulates the growth of all internal organs except the brain.
Plays a role in fuel homeostasis.
Reduces liver uptake of glucose, an effect that opposes that of insulin.
Promotes liver glucogenesis.
Contributes to the maintenance and function of pancreatic islets.
Sermorelin Growth Hormone (GHRH) Therapy
As a result of Sermorelin Growth Hormone (GHRH) Therapy, the increased volume of human growth hormone secreted by the stimulated pituitary gland is converted by the liver into IGF-1. The increased amount of IGF-1 in the blood stream results an increase in metabolism and growth of new cells within the body's organs and bones. This treatment is prescribed for unlabeled use in adults to reverse the effects of aging, increase bone density, enhance the immune system, and strengthen the heart, as well as, other organs of the body. Since the increased volume of human growth hormone is produced by the body's pituitary gland, the body's endocrine system will not allow more growth hormone to be produced by the Sermorelin GH-RH stimulation of the pituitary than the body can safely process within the endocrine self-monitoring system.
Growth Hormone - Releasing Hormone (Sermorelin Acetate) has been specifically approved for medical use in increasing growth hormone levels in children deficient in growth hormone production. Its use to increase the growth hormone and IGF-1 levels in adults is an off-label use of this prescription drug and not the approved use. It is specifically approved only for use in children and was formerly manufactured under the prescription drug brand name of Geref.
Growth Hormone - Releasing Hormone (Sermorelin Acetate) Therapy causes the pituitary gland to increase the growth hormone and IGF-1 levels in humans. It is a prescription drug that may be prescribed for adults for unlabeled uses and the cost is about one-third the price of illegal adult synthetic, recombinant human growth hormone (HGH) injections therapy.
Growth Hormone - Releasing Hormone (Sermorelin Acetate) Therapy for Adults increases adult lean muscle mass, reduces body fat and reverses the effects of aging in adults because of the benefits flowing from its stimulation of the pituitary gland to increase production of human growth hormone and the resulting increased production of IGF-1by the liver.
