For certain qualifying patients, sermorelin can produce remarkable before and after results for patients suffering from age-related growth hormone deficiency.
Sermorelin belongs to a class of compounds called secretagogues. As a group, secretagogues stimulate the “secretion” of specific hormones. In the case of sermorelin, it is a synthetic duplicate of naturally occurring Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone or GHRH that stimulates your pituitary gland to increase the output of human growth hormone (HGH).
HGH is essential for growth, health, and well-being. However, the pituitary gland’s ability to produce HGH declines as you age. This decrease in pituitary function is often related to the depletion of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones. Supplemental GHRH in the form of prescription sermorelin therapy has been shown to make up for this loss, increase the production of HGH, and have several “before and after benefits.”
