What is Sermorelin?

Sermorelin is a natural occurring amino acid that causes the brain to secrete more human growth hormone (HGH). HGH is one of the most important hormones for maintaining a functional body and staying healthy and young. It has numerous benefits including helping the development of new tissues including muscle, maintaining a lean body, increasing fat metabolism, producing more energy, building stronger bones, maintaining the health of the organs, maintaining a natural sleep cycle and more.

If you're trying to lose weight or get better results from your exercise efforts, increasing your production of HGH can help you tremendously. There are several ways to do this such as extensive exercise and a proper diet, but none of those particular methods increase your growth hormone levels dramatically.

Your growth hormone levels start declining at age 30

By the time you reach the age of 30 your body has become accustomed to the high levels of growth hormone that it has had throughout your entire life.  At this age our peak hormone levels are only a fifth of what they are during childhood and they start dropping off by anywhere from 12 to 15 percent per decade. It may seem like just a small decrease but that drop of 15 percent can have significant effects on a person's metabolism, energy levels, and overall health.

Your growth hormone levels eventually reach only a fraction of what they were in your twenties. This has dozens of unwanted effects, and it is thought that this is one of the primary causes of aging. We put on weight easier as we age, our bodies become more fragile, and we have a lower muscle density than when we were younger.

To reduce these unwanted aging effects as much as possible, replacing a growth hormone deficiency can prove to be effective. Sermorelin is regularly prescribed to adult patients to replace lower than normal levels of HGH. It is an effective and safe way to increase production of this important hormone without some of the unwanted side effects of injecting the hormone directly.

Although Sermorelin  is certainly not an aging cure, it can directly treat and prevent many of the health problems that  can pop up with age. It can reduce skin wrinkling, maintain and increase bone density, increase muscle mass and prevent muscle wasting, maintain a healthy immune system and strengthen it, prevent cognitive decline and neurological disorders, maintain normal red blood cell production, reduce the chance of developing cardiovascular disease, and it also helps reduce abdominal fat levels dramatically. Without a doubt there are many adults who can benefit from using Sermorelin as a way to safely increase their GH levels as they age without side effects.

Injectable HGH is sometimes used to treat a deficiency

There is a synthetic version of the hormone that has been used for deficiency replacements and as a supplement by some. Injecting synthetically produced HGH can work to replace low levels but it has some unique potential side effects. The risk of overdosing is higher unless you are prescribed the hormone from a medical professional. Also the quality of the hormone is incredibly important to consider.

If the product is obtained from an unknown or foreign source there are serious potential health risks, as there is no way to guarantee the quality of a hormone produced from an unknown laboratory. Even laboratories that claim to produce real HGH can have issues with their production methods and create a hormone that does not act exactly like naturally produced HGH.

Non-bioidentical HGH is thought to lead to several negative effects, especially when it is used in excess. Some of the negative effects can include muscle stiffness, chest pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, abnormal bone growth, and enlarged organs. This effect does not occur when the hormone is obtained from a high quality source like Nu Image Medical and given at a proper dosage as prescribed by a medical doctor.

Sermorelin increases growth hormone levels naturally

Sermorelin is commonly used to treat HGH deficiencies because it causes the brain to produce higher growth hormone levels naturally. It is considered to be preferable to hormone injections for several reasons. First, when the brain produces the hormone it is as natural and pure as it can get, so there is no risk of negative side effects due to the hormone being non-bioidentical.

Sermorelin or GRH 1-29 is prescribed at low doses, and it causes the body to produce growth hormone in a safer way. If there is too much sermorelin the body will shut down growth hormone production naturally, so the risk of overdose is virtually non-existent when this method is used. When the hormone is released by the pituitary gland naturally, it is also released in the proper amounts, and by using the natural pathway it reaches every part of the body.

By using sermorelin, adults with a hormone deficiency can benefit in several ways. They may experience increased energy levels, higher muscle mass even if they have a sedentary lifestyle, reduced stomach fat and vascular fat, increased libido, fewer wrinkles, a normal sleep schedule, increased bone density, higher levels of enduring during workouts, improved wound healing, better eyesight, and many other positive effects.

Sermorelin therapy can be recommended by Nu Image Medical and self-administered at home. A medical doctor will give you an initial evaluation to determine whether or not the therapy is recommended to replace a GH deficiency. If it is recommended, sermorelin will be prescribed to you and you will self-inject it at home using a small needle. We will provide you with instructions on how to do this, and answer any questions that you have at all.

Our hormone products are all safely produced at quality laboratories in the United States, so you can rest assured that you are getting a high quality sermorelin treatment program. Many adults over the age of 30 will have a growth hormone deficiency and can benefit from replacing their hormone levels naturally. Stop the effects of aging and find out if you can benefit from natural and safe growth hormone replacement using sermorelin therapy today.
