Sermorelin Acetate is a “growth hormone-releasing hormone” that is produced naturally by the human brain to stimulate production and release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. It stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts 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. 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, vitality, and growth. During aging, GHRH declines, causing a decrease in the secretion of pituitary HGH which leads to growth hormone insufficiency which can erode health & vitality.
Sermorelin Acetate Therapy causes the pituitary gland to increase growth hormone production thereby increasing the liver’s production of IGF-1.
Sermorelin Acetate is often prescribed as a cost-effective alternative to human growth hormone for adults with human growth hormone deficiency as diagnosed by a licensed physician.
