What is Sermorelin Acetate (GHRF)?
Sermorelin Acetate is a biological active analog of growth hormone releasing factor (GRF 1-44) which is a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) produced by the brain to stimulate the production and release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland. When the volume of human growth hormone (hGH) is increased, it stimulates the production of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver.
Why do practitioners prescribe Sermorelin?
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. Proponents of Sermorelin therapy also affirm its many positive effects and advocate that it helps rejuvenate youthful energy and vitality.
When we are young, generous amounts of GHRH (Growth-Homone-Releasing Hormone) are produced, allowing the pituitary to provide the body with plenty of growth hormone to maintain growth, health, and vitality. As we age, GHRH production decreases and leads to growth hormone scarcity which can inhibit healing, health, and vitality.
