Symptoms of HGH deficiency include increased body fat, loss of muscle mass and strength, osteoporosis, decreased energy, fatigue, fragility, senility, weight gain, diminished sexual drive, greater risk of cardiovascular disease and lower life expectancy. In other words, the symptoms of aging. While Sermorelin produces the same effects on body composition and provides all of the other benefits of HGH injection therapy, it is universally regarded as a much safer treatment option.
15% average decrease in fat (especially belly fat)
8% average increase in lean muscle mass
Improved skin texture resulting in a more youthful appearance
Fewer skin wrinkles
Improved physical performance
Improved immune function
Improved sleep quality
Increased bone density
Faster healing of injury, fracture, or wound
Enhanced brain function, retention of intellect with aging
Improvement in overall physical and mental well being
Improved exercise tolerance
Please click on and read this article to find out why Sermorelin is a superior and MUCH safer treatment option versus HGH therapy.
It’s a rather technical article so please allow me to summarize it more simply.
-Prescribing human growth hormone for anti-aging purposes is ILLEGAL. Even though many practices prescribe HGH very liberally, they do so knowing they are breaking the law; that is a big reason why HGH therapy is VERY expensive nowadays. MOST IMPORTANTLY, do you really want to receive treatment from a physician who is knowingly breaking the law? That’s probably not a good sign of the offending physician’s moral code; i.e. $$$ more important than morals or patient safety. Pacific Longevity is one of the VERY few anti-aging practices that puts the patient before profits.
-It is virtually impossible to overdose on Sermorelin
-Sermorelin maintains the natural pulsatile release of growth hormone.
-HGH therapy results in a constant exposure to rather than pulsatile release of growth hormone; this can result in “tachyphylaxis.” Tachyphlaxis means that response to therapy either halts or is greatly reduced.
-Sermorelin helps build up the pituitary gland’s growth hormone reserves. HGH therapy decreases or shuts down natural growth hormone production and release.
-Sermorelin is much less expensive than is HGH therapy. This wasn’t always the case. However, because these clinics are taking their chances with the law and medical board, they must charge more to justify that risk.
The effects of Sermorelin are regulated at the level of the pituitary gland by negative feedback and by release of somatostatin so that safety concerns associated with HGH overdosing are greatly minimized. Contrastingly, with HGH injections, there is no negative feedback nor does somatostatin affect exogenous HGH injections. Simply put, overdosing on HGH is as simple as injecting more HGH. Whereas, it is nearly impossible to overdose on Sermorelin.
What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is an analog of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). GHRH is produced in the brain and stimulates production and release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. In other words, Sermorelin increases your own natural growth hormone levels.
During youth, ample amounts of GHRH are produced so that the pituitary is able to provide the body with sufficient growth hormone to sustain health and vitality. GHRH declines with age causing reduced production and secretion of HGH.
The symptoms of HGH deficiency include increase in body fat, loss of muscle mass and strength, osteoporosis, decreased energy, fatigue, fragility, senility, weight gain, greater risk of cardiovascular disease and lower life expectancy. In other words, the symptoms of aging.
HGH revs up metabolism and selectively reduces fat around the abdomen, hips, waist and thighs while also increasing lean muscle mass. Combined with an effective exercise regimen, the selective fat loss around the mid-section can make an otherwise unattainable 6-pack a reality for many.
Skin, Hair and Nails
Antioxidants and even other hormone treatments can be a great help in maintaining a youthful appearance, but only HGH can take a decade or so off your face. The skin regains thickness, becomes more elastic and hydrated and people start looking visibly younger, usually within a few weeks. Not only do the fine lines vanish and deeper wrinkles recede, the face can actually undergo a change of contour. HGH appears to have a tonic effect on hair. In clinical tests 38% reported new hair growth, coming in faster and thicker, and even in its natural color. Nails are also strengthened and cellulite removed.
Exercise and Body Building
Medical studies have proven that positive gains occur only while growth hormone is being secreted. HGH significantly increases the effects of exercise and muscle building, including energy, muscle strength, stamina and endurance.
Learning, memory and intelligence all depend on adequate supplies of growth hormone. Sermorelin can not only reinvigorate the mind. It can improve concentration and can have a profound effect in increasing energy and a sense of well-being.
Effects on Growth
Growth is a very complex process, and requires the coordinated action of several hormones. The major role of growth hormone in stimulating body growth is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete IGF-I. IGF-I stimulates proliferation of chondrocytes (cartilage cells), resulting in bone growth.
IGF-I also appears to be the key player in muscle growth. It stimulates both the differentiation and proliferation of myoblasts (muscle cells). It also stimulates amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in muscle and other tissues.
Growth hormone has important effects on protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism.
Protein metabolism: In general, growth hormone stimulates protein anabolism (protein building) in many tissues. This effect reflects increased amino acid uptake, increased protein synthesis and decreased oxidation of proteins.
Growth hormone enhances the utilization of fat by stimulating triglyceride breakdown and oxidation in fat cells and suppresses their ability to take up and accumulate circulating fats or lipids.
Growth hormone is one of a battery of hormones that serves to maintain blood glucose within a normal range. Growth hormone suppresses the abilities of insulin to stimulate uptake of glucose in peripheral tissues and it’s ability to synthesize glucose in the liver.
In summary, Sermorelin produces the same effects on body composition and provides all of the other benefits of HGH injection therapy. However, Sermorelin is much less expensive and much safer than is HGH injection therapy.
