BACKED BY RESEARCH
In multiple studies, sermorelin has been shown to acutely increase growth hormone levels, resulting in a myriad of health benefits for the subjects. Men and women in a six month study experienced lean body mass increases and an average 5-8% reduction in body fat levels, particularly in the abdominal region. Impressively, another study showed an increase in levels of IGF1 by 30% in men and 23% in women(IGF1 is essentially a hormone derived from growth hormone that is responsible for muscle growth in adults – more growth hormone equals more IGF1). Other studies have indicated increases in cognitive function, bone mineral density, and general subjective improvements in wellbeing and quality of life. Long term usage studies are still being conducted but the consensus is that sermorelin is especially well tolerated and is an effective option for the purpose of anti-aging.
HOW SERMORELIN BENEFITS YOU
As we get older, we all experience a steep decline in growth hormone levels. After the age of 30, growth hormone levels drop by 15% on average for every decade of life. Remember the seemingly endless energy you had as a teenager? Well this youthful vitality is due in part to abundant growth hormone production and release by your pituitary gland. During puberty, males release an average of 150 nanograms of growth hormone daily for every kilogram of bodyweight. This amount settles to about 25 nanograms per kilogram a day at the age of 55 – an 83% reduction in daily growth hormone levels. What this means is an increased body mass index due to higher body fat ratios, reduced muscle mass and strength, decreased bone density, and poorer lipoprotein (cholesterol) profiles among other things.
Like many aspects of the aging process, decreased growth hormone production is usually asymptomatic at first with its ill effects not becoming apparent for some time. Up until recently, the only option to replace growth hormone came in the form of exogenous (from outside the body) human growth hormone (hGH). However, besides being illegal for the purposes of anti-aging, hGH has a whole host of unwanted side effects that most people would rather avoid. They include an increased risk for tumor growth, heart disease and diabetes. These major side effects are commonly attributed to the fact that when you use hGH, levels of growth hormone are unnaturally high throughout the entire day. So what can you do if you are feeling the physiological and psychological effects of aging and want to reverse the hands of time by increasing your growth hormone levels?
HOW TO USE SERMORELIN
Sermorelin is commonly taken by subcutaneous injection, which is an injection under the skin but not in the muscle. The best time to take the injection is in the evening since that correlates better with the natural secretion of growth hormone.
The common recommended dosage of Sermorelin for anti-aging is one 300 mcg injection per day.
