Sermorelin & Growth Hormone Stimulation
If you've done your research, you probably already know that the pituitary gland produces growth hormone. You may also know that growth hormone is what promotes the growth and repair of cells. When we are younger, our pituitary gland produces healthy supplies of growth hormones, enought to supply a growing body what it needs.
But as we get older, and the pituitary ages, it produces less growth hormone, and aging occurs as a consequence.
While it may not be the “fountain of youth”, it's obvious that restoring growth hormone to healthy levels can be very beneficial when it comes to managing the aging process.
How Sermorelin Helps
When it comes to restoring growth hormone to healthy levels, sermorelin is different than growth hormone replacement. Rather than replacing growth hormone directly, sermorelin is a growth hormone releasing hormone (or GHRH) that works by stimulating the pituitary to begin producing its own growth hormone. At WCT Medical we strongly support restoring hormones to healthy levels in the most natural way possible. A significant benefit of sermorelin is that it enables the production of growth hormone to be regulated at the level of the pituitary gland, resulting in episodic “dosing” of growth hormone - which is exactly what your body does naturally.
Research has shown that restoring growth hormone to healthy levels yields the following results:
|Skin||Increased elasticity, texture, and tightness, particularly in the face|
|Energy||Increased energy and emotional stability.|
|Bone||Improved bone strength and mass|
|Libido||Increased sex drive|
|Fat||Decreased body fat, particularly in the abdomen|
|Healing||Shorter recovery time from injuries and exercise|
|Memory||Enhanced brain function and growth of neuron dendrites|
|Heart||Improved cardiovascular strength and lowered blood pressure|
|Kidney||Improved kidney function|
|Immune System||Improved immunity and healing|
|Hair||Improved hair texture|
|Cholesterol||Elevated HDL (good cholesterol) and lowered LDL (bad cholesterol)|
|Mental Health||Increased emotional stability and sense of wellbeing|
|Metabolism||Increased metabolism and greater ability to control weight|
|Stress||Increased protection from the ravages of stress and cortisol|
