What Is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is the first 29 peptides of the Growth Hormone Release Hormone, and it acts entirely the same way. It is a mixture of Sermorelin and GHRH receptor peptide-6. Interesting enough, Sermorelin started out as a medication for Cerebral Palsy, and Cystic Fibrosis. Sermorelin (GHRH) therapy is a popular anti-aging treatment that can safely restore your own production of youthful human growth hormone (hGH) levels, without concerns about the negative side effects of a direct HGH replacement therapy. With Sermorelin, the resulting increase in natural hGH production is gradual and safe because it uses the body’s own natural hGH production processes, and it can improve a wide range of age related conditions. Sermorelin therapy ensures that you maintain healthy HGH levels as you get older.

What Is HGH And How Does It Work In The Body Naturally?
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a hormone that is released into our blood stream after the GHRH (Growth hormone Releasing Hormone) binds to the Pituitary gland in our brains. Typically, the pituitary gland is contained by a substance called somatostatin. The Somatostatin will stay attached to the receptors on the pituitary gland; this means the GHRH cannot bind. However, during specific times of the day, the somatostatin is released from the pituitary gland and the GHRH can finally bind, which results in the release of the Human Growth Hormone. This occurs several times through the day; usually during stressful situations, and at night when resting.
As humans age, there is a decrease in the release of HGH. Therefore, it takes longer for older people to heal. At the age of 20, the average human peaks in their HGH. Every decade after that, the Human Growth Hormone decreases by approximately 15-30%. This means that by age 40, they have roughly 50% of the HGH they once had at half the age.
When we’re young, our bodies produce a growth hormone releasing factor that triggers our pituitary gland to produce and release human growth hormone (hGH) in levels that are sufficient to sustain good health and vitality. However, as we age, growth hormone releasing factor declines causing a decrease in the production and secretion of pituitary hGH. This often results in a growth hormone deficiency that can erode health, diminish vigor and vitality, and lead to a host of undesirable symptoms.
What Is GHRP-2?
Growth Hormone Receptor Peptide 2 is a substance that is mixed into the Sermorelin that gives the pituitary gland the ability to have a human growth hormone release within 15-20 minutes of administering. When the GHRH and Sermorelin are able to bind to the pituitary gland together, it causes an increased stimulation, which entails a greater amount of HGH to be released into the blood stream.
SERMORELIN GHRP2, has proven to be much more effective and have a more profound effect on body composition.
No Off Cycles! SERMORELIN GHRP-2 requires no off-cycles. In fact, the longer you use it, the better your pituitary gland functions, more like it did when you were younger!! SERMORELIN GHRP2 can be used to re-stimulate the natural production of human growth hormone.
At Thrive® Health Solutions, we’ve combined the pituitary-supporting effects of Sermorelin with the stimulating action of GHRP-2 (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide). GHRP-2 stimulates the pituitary gland which causes an increase in growth hormone release. In addition to amplifying your GH releasing Hormone, GHRP-2 also acts to suppress other hormones that inhibit your body’s natural growth hormone secretion. GHRP-2 also supports your central nervous system by protecting neurons, as well as, increasing strength similar to the way certain steroids in the dihydrotestosterone family do.
What Is The Difference Between HGH And Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is not HGH; it is a like hormone to the GHRH. Human Growth Hormone is an illegal substance and cannot be prescribed to patients for use. When HGH is injected into the body it is genetically engineered in a lab to mimic the effects of natural HGH. The human growth hormone is a much larger molecule that reaches 190 amino acids, whereas Sermorelin is 29. Sermorelin is much safer and has not shown any increase of cancer possibility, unlike injectable HGH.
Sermorelin does not add HGH to the body, instead it stimulates the release of the HGH your body has already formulated.
Can Testosterone Replacement Therapy And Sermorelin Be Done Together?
Yes! It has proven effective to increase energy and strength, and even more so when the medications are used together.
How Is It Administered?
This medication is given Subcutaneously; in the stomach or the fatty tissue in the back of the arm. It should be injected every night before bedtime, and the patient should not eat 2 hours before or after the injection. If the patient does eat, the drug will not be effective. Also note that this medication takes 3-4 months before the patient will feel the full effects. The reason is takes this long is because the body needs to adapt to this change slowly, otherwise it increases chances of side effects. Patients can be on this medication for as long as they desire, they can also take breaks in between. However, it is suggested to be on Sermorelin for a minimum of 4-6 months.
How Do We Monitor The Levels?
Since HGH is spontaneously released into the blood stream, we would have to do the blood when it has been released (nearly impossible). Therefore, we monitor the insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Studies have shown that as HGH rises in the human body, so does the IGF-1 at a very similar rate.
What Are The Concerns With This Medication?
There are currently no negative long-term side effects of this medication, in rare instances (less than 1%) there are some possible short-
term side effects;
- Flushing of Face
- Mild Headache
- Injection Site Reactions: this can be prevented by cleaning the injection site prior to giving the injection, and rotating injection sites.
How Does Sermorelin IGF-1 Work?
Before you can understand how your depleted hGH levels are restored, you have to understand how the hormone is first produced. Human Growth Hormones are produced naturally by the pituitary gland. This gland is responsible for controlling a majority of the other glands in your body so it is often referred to as the Master Gland. However, the production of HGH is one of the most popular functions of the gland and is vital for the growth of your body. As hGH is produced, it enables your organs to produce IGF-1 which aids in the overall development of your bodily functions. So as you can see, all of these functions are interrelated and connected. Without HGH, none of it is possible.
The production of your hGH levels will peak in your early twenties. Your pituitary glands will start to produce less of the hormone and you will begin to experience many of the side effects described above. Sermorelin therapy stimulates the pituitary to produce the hGH naturally produced in your body so that you can reach optimal hormone levels. Ideally you will reach the levels that you had in your early twenties and will become more youthful. Your therapy will help your natural regeneration rate to increase and you will experience tissue growth and other excellent benefits. Sermorelin is administered via injections. It is easy to administer and can be done from the comfort of your home. Many refer to the Sermorelin (IGF-1/hGH) Therapy as THE anti-aging solution.
Sermorelin is a human growth hormone releasing hormone that stimulates the pituitary gland to release HGH, naturally. Within 3-6 months of injections, patients will begin experiencing several positive effects such as improved sleep, better exercise tolerance, faster muscle growth and weight loss, improved skin tone, better hair growth, increased sexual performance, stronger bones and faster healing, and more.
HGH and Aging
The aging process can be attributed to this fact: Research shows that that by age 20, the average level of HGH is at 10 milligrams (per deciliter of human blood). By the time you are 60 your level goes down by 80 percent. Growth hormone is in charge for many of the factors that keep us feeling and looking young! For example: hGH directly effects height, muscle growth, vital organs, cells, and tissues. Our HGH levels start this sharp decrease right after the age of thirty. This rapid decrease then takes you to about 20% of where you were when you were in your twenties.
In order to help people enjoy the kind of quality of life they truly deserve, scientists have spent over forty years researching the benefits of hGH therapy. These great benefits are fat loss, increased energy, growth in lean muscle, better mood, higher libido, and can even help your bones fight osteoporosis. Other proven effects are improved brain performance, as well heart, and immune system performance.
Sermorelin, GHRPs & Other Peptides
Sermorelin is a bio-identical hormone that induces the release of natural, endogenous GH. Peptides are specific chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of the proteins that play critical functions throughout the body. Your muscles, skin, and all tissues contain millions of amino acids, peptides, and proteins that play essential roles in your physical composition, neurotransmitter support, energy generation, and biosynthesis. Learn how sermorelin research has advanced sufficiently to provide comparable results to much more expensive hGH-based therapies.
Sermorelin stimulates your pituitary gland by binding to specific receptors that increase production and secretion of endogenous Human Growth Hormone (HGH), naturally! Sermorelin can enhance overall health and wellbeing and may be used in conjunction with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) in men and women, weight loss programs, slow metabolism, thyroid, Low-T and erectile dysfunction treatment in men.
If a patient has a personal history of Malignancy they are not advised to try this medication.
COMMON SERMORELIN QUESTIONS
Sermorelin (GHRH) is a bio-identical hormone that has recently been genetically engineered to stimulate the secretion of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) from the hypothalamus, a gland adjacent to the pituitary gland, Naturally, without the negative side effects and cost of traditional HGH replacement therapy.GHRH is a peptide that contains the first 29 amino acids of our own GH. These 29 amino acids are the active amino acids of GHRH. It is GHRH that stimulates the pituitary glands to release GH. As we get older, the hormones produced by the anterior pituitary are depleted. It has now been shown that GHRH can restore the GH-RNA to a youthful level causing elevation of levels of IGF-1.
Sermorelin is injected into the body fat, subcutaneously, using a very small needle similar to what a diabetic uses to inject insulin. Injections are initially prescribed for every day and are decreased in frequency over time. Sermorelin is presented in a multi-dosed, injectable vial. Administration and storage instructions will be provided with your prescription.
The best time to take Sermorelin is prior to bedtime. Growth Hormone is primarily released during sleep and most beneficial to the body’s recovery and repair during this time. Sermorelin has a promoting effect on sleep and can therefore make you tired if taken during the day.
Due to the pulsatile nature of both endogenous hGH and IGF-1, a single blood draw is not sufficient for accurate measurement. Thrive® physicians measure effectiveness in patients through symptomology (the study of your symptoms-see benefits); physical appearance and measurements; and blood analysis.
Patients usually report improved sleep within the first few weeks of therapy. Of course, this is only noticed in patients who have trouble sleeping in the first place, however most patients at least notice an increase in sleep quality. This is usually concurrent with increased energy levels and improved mood. After 3-6 months of therapy patients start reporting noticeable or significant body changes, such as increase in muscle tone and a leaner physique. Over time patients will also notice a significant improvement in skin tone and health.
Just like most peptide hormones, Sermorelin usually has a “loading” period of 3-6 months before full effects are noticed. Once injected, for a period of three to six months, its actions are dependent on a chain reaction of biological processes which result in elevated and sustained HGH and growth factors. It takes some time for levels to become optimal and initiate the benefits we are seeking to achieve.
Actually, no. Sermorelin has an ongoing effect in which optimal hGH levels can be sustained long after the last injection. Just like synthetic hGH, Sermorelin initially must be injected every day. Unlike synthetic hGH, once optimal levels are sustained with Sermorelin injection frequencies can be decreased or stopped altogether. Once results are achieved, patients are then switched to a maintenance protocol eliminating the need for ongoing daily injections and reducing the total cost of therapy!Thrive Health and Wellness, LLC Sermorelin therapy restores optimal levels of Human Growth Hormone using a more effective approach. We may recommend combining an effective dosage of Sermorelin with bio-identical hormones like testosterone to increase lean muscle tissue, reduce body fat, and improve overall health and longevity.Our medical team also recommends the utilization of injectable amino acids and peptides to help improve results.
