Sermorelin is a growth hormone releasing factor (GRF) that contains the first 29 amino acids that are needed to stimulate pituitary gland secretion of human growth hormone (HGH). The HGH that the body naturally produces contains 191 amino acids. HGH is an endocrine hormone, like estrogen or progesterone. Sermorelin is not the same thing as natural HGH produced in the body, it is the synthetic version of it. It works by stimulating the pituitary gland to produce more human growth hormone. It is often given to children with growth problems. It can also benefit adults who become deficient in HGH. Sermorelin can help aging adults keep their youthful look longer. Sermorelin also helps to alleviate some symptoms in patients who have HIV.

Sermorelin therapy can benefit adults to improve the appearance of wrinkles and increase the elasticity of the skin. Better bone strength and higher energy levels can be maintained. Men who take sermorelin benefit from having improved muscle mass, strength and stamina as well as well as increased sex drive and better sexual performance. Sermorelina also help improve kidney function and memory. Men can benefit from taking Sermorelin as well, because it increases the amounts of GHRH in to body so that health and vitality is sustained during the aging process. The amount of GHRH naturally declines as one ages. Sermorelin is given through subcutaneous injections and its affect on the body are the same as HGH. It is a viable and safe alternative to HGH replacement therapy and is completely legal. The FDA approved growth hormone injections for children in 1997. It was approved for experimental clinical use for adults in 1998. Adults who have growth hormone deficiencies can resolve them by taking Sermorelin.
