WE Can help you get more from your workouts and fight signs of aging
As you age, your natural production of growth hormone decreases. This decrease leads to normal changes of aging including a decrease in lean mass, increase in fat mass, and decrease in bone density. Recovery from workouts takes longer, and the visible improvements lessen.
Use of a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) such as Sermorelin can help to naturally boost your growth hormone release and reverse these signs of aging.
WHAT ARE GROWTH HORMONE RELEASING HORMONES?
Growth hormone releasing hormones such as Sermorelin, also called “peptides”, are a synthetic peptide equivalent to the first 29 amino acids (1–29), which contain the active part of native, hypothalamic growth hormone-releasing hormone. Due to this chemical structure it is able to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone. Sermorelin was initially developed and approved by the FDA for treating growth hormone deficiency in children, but now many functional medicine providers use it off label to optimize the growth hormone levels of adult patients. There are also several growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) that can be combined with a GHRH to increase the body’s growth hormone release even more.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING PEPTIDES?
Peptide treatment comes with many possible benefits, including:
- Increased muscle mass
- Improved ability to burn fat
- Increased sex drive
- Improved recovery and repair from injuries
- Enhanced energy levels
- Improved sleep
- Increased bone density
- Strengthens the cardiovascular system
- Strengthens the immune system
- Increased skin elasticity
HOW ARE PEPTIDES TAKEN?
Typically these medications are prescribed to be taken at night to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland during REM sleep. They are best when taken on an empty stomach (about 2 hours after last food consumption) and 30 minutes before eating.
Peptides come in many different formulations depending on the desired results, and are most often taken as a subcutaneous injection 5 nights per week. Some formulations are also available in oral or sublingual dosing.
