What is a Hormone?
Hormones are tiny chemical messengers that help our body do different tasks. Hormones are made up of amino acids and are produced by the endocrine glands. They travel throughout the body stimulating certain activities. For example, Insulin is a well-known hormone that helps our body digest food. Our growth, digestion, reproduction and sexual functions are all triggered by hormones.
What is Human Growth Hormone?
Human Growth Hormone also known as HGH is the most abundant hormone produced by the pituitary gland, which is one of the endocrine glands. The pituitary gland is located in the center of the brain. HGH is a very complex hormone. It is made up of 191 amino acids, making it fairly large for a hormone. In fact, it is the largest protein created by the pituitary gland.
HGH secretion reaches its highest in the body during adolescence. This makes sense because HGH helps stimulate our body to grow. However, HGH secretion does not stop after adolescence. Our body continues to produce HGH usually in short bursts during deep sleep. Human growth hormone is known to be critical for tissue repair, muscle growth, healing, brain function, physical and mental health, bone strength, energy and metabolism. In short, it is very important to just about every aspect of our life.
What is a Peptide?
We are certified in Peptide Therapy by the AMMG.
A peptide is a naturally-occurring substance that form when two or more single amino acids join together via a peptide bond to form a short chain.
Thymusin Alpha 1 / Beta 4, Sermorelin, CJC-1295, BPC-157, Tesamorelin
Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing peptides also known as GHRP. GHRP’s work to increase circulation of growth hormones, which in turn cause an increase in IGF1 or (insulin-like growth factor 1). This process of increasing growth hormones is more natural than using Human Growth Hormone (Genotropin, Norditropin, Omnitrope, Serostim).
What is a Sermorelin?
Sermorelin has several clinical indications and applications related to GHRH/GH insufficiency.1 For example it is officially indicated and approved for diagnostic evaluation of pituitary function and also for treatment of delayed or inadequate growth in children. It also can be used to oppose maladaptive changes in body composition such as reduced lean body mass (muscle), increased total and visceral fat, and decreased bone mass resulting from low or inadequate concentrations of serum GH and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1).
Data from research and clinical studies have demonstrated sermorelin’s multifaceted properties, some of which include:
- Peak increases in hGH followed administration of GHRH analogs after 15 or 30 min. An increase in the integrated plasma growth hormone (GH) response was observed at each dose.2
- Quality of life parameters including general well-being (P < 0.05) and libido (P < 0.01) significantly improved in men receiving sermorelin therapy.3
- Youthful concentrations and patterns of serum hGH were restored in older persons by daily injections of GRF (sermorelin).4
- Body composition improved after regular administration of GRF for 90 days resulting in increased muscle mass, increased total body water and decreased visceral fat.5
- Quality of sleep improved as indicated by extended Stage IV and Slow Wave Sleep in men.6
What role does HGH play in the body?
Human growth hormone and IgF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) have been shown to play a significant role in:
• Conversion of body fat to muscle mass
• Growth of all tissues (New Skin and Collagen)
• Energy level
• Tissue repair
• Whole body healing
• Cell replacement
• Bone strength
• Brain function
• Sexual function
• Organ health and integrity
• Enzyme production
• Integrity of hair, nails, skin and vital organs
Basically, any function in your body is in some way tied to HGH. This is why HGH is often called the “fountain of youth”. Elevated HGH levels are what make you feel young again.
Does your body always produce HGH?
Your body must always produce HGH or you would not be able to function. However, as you pass the age of 20, your body decreases the about produced each year. By age 60, most people are likely to have lost 75% of the HGH their body normally produces.
For example, here are some average HGH secretion levels:
• At 20 years old we average 500 micrograms/day
• At 40 years old we average 200 micrograms/day
• At 80 years old we average 25 micrograms/day
Why does the body produce less HGH as we get older?
This question leads to a much bigger question – Is aging a preventable disease? For years people have believed that as we get older our body basically wears out. The theory went that all of our organs, tissues, muscles, bones, etc., have a set life span and will get weaker as we age. When someone is 40 and is complaining that they cannot do what they used to be able to do at 20, we accepted this as the natural process of getting old.
Researching HGH shows that aging may be preventable to a certain extent. This research indicates that our body is very capable at the age of 40 to have the same makeup as we did at the age of 20.
It was originally believed that the pituitary gland did not have the capacity to produce large amounts of HGH as we get older. However, recent studies have shown that aging pituitary glands are capable of producing as much HGH as young pituitary glands, if it is adequately stimulated. This shows that the somatotroph cell, the cell in the pituitary gland that releases HGH, does not “lose power” as we age.
So, if the problem is not with the pituitary gland, why does HGH decrease as we age? One theory is that the pituitary gland does not “know” it should be producing more HGH. Our body has a feedback loop that says when the IGF-1 levels decrease, produce more HGH. For some unknown reason it is possible that this loop is broken and the pituitary gland has a harder time getting the signal to produce more HGH as we age.
Another theory is that as we get older our Somatostatin levels increase. Somatostatin is a natural inhibitor to growth hormone. So, as we age the somatostatin levels increase and this leads to a decrease in HGH.
Is there any way to maintain high HGH or GHRP levels as we age?
Yes. A daily injection of this HGH or Sermorelin (GHRP) will lead to an overall increase of growth hormone in the body. It is important to understand that recombinant HGH is only available in injection form. The 191 amino acid hormone is too delicate to be made in any oral form.
What effect does this increase in HGH have on the body?
While numerous studies have been done on the effects of HGH injections, the most ground breaking study was done by Dr. Rudman and published in the New England Journal of Medicine on July 5, 1990. The journal reported that men who had taken HGH injections had shown an 8.8 percent gain in lean body mass with a 14 percent loss in body fat – without any change in diet or activity. It bears repeating that there was no change in diet or exercise – and the subjects who received HGH injections had a 8.8 percent increase in lean body mass.
If you look at all the studies that have been done on HGH injections you get the following list of benefits:
• 8.8% increase in muscle mass on average after six months, without exercise
• 14.4% loss of fat on average after six months, without dieting
• Balance of these hormones aid with all cosmetic stem cell procedures

• Regrowth of heart, liver, spleen, kidneys and other organs that shrink with age
• Greater cardiac output
• Superior immune function
• Increased exercise performance
• Better kidney function
• Lowered blood pressure
• Improved cholesterol profile, with higher HDL and lower LDL
• Stronger bones
• Faster wound healing
• Younger, tighter, thicker, fuller skin
• Hair regrowth
• Wrinkle removal
• Elimination of cellulite
• Sharper vision
• Mood elevation
• Increased memory retention
• Improved sleep
HGH Side Effects
Possible side effects of HGH use include:
• nerve, muscle, or joint pain
• swelling due to fluid in the body’s tissues (edema)
• carpal tunnel syndrome
• numbness and tingling of the skin
• high cholesterol levels
What is the average dosage a person would take?
Based on clinical studies from top U.S doctors most patients start at 1iu-2iu’s per day 5-6 days per week.
Where do I inject myself?
You can inject it sub-cutaneous, just under the skin, in the stomach area or leg, 1/2 inch 1cc insulin syringe, or alternatively you can inject it intramuscular, however the results from sub-cutaneous injections are more effective. Typically at night before you go to bed is the best time to inject HGH or GHRP.
How long before I start to see results from taking HGH?
After about 2 months you will notice improvements in your sleep patterns, increased appetite, and more energy levels. The most significant results start showing after 4 – 6 months of treatment and continually improve and become more significant the longer you are taking HGH or GHRP.
How can I measure my HGH / GHRP levels?
HGH is only present in the body for a short period of time. However, IGF-1, which is your insulin growth factor, is present in the body at all times. Recent studies show that this is the most effective way to measure your HGH levels. Blood and saliva tests can show your IGF-1 levels. Generally, the lower your levels, the more you stand to gain from HGH treatment.
