What is Sermorelin Acetate?

Sermorelin Acetate is a compound similar in structure to growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). Sermorelin has been known to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone. It is a bioidentical synthetic hormone peptide sequence comprised of 29 amino acids.

Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat children, but many functional medicine doctors are using it off-label to optimize growth hormone levels of adult patients. Unlike HGH, Sermorelin is affordable and can be used off-label.

Sermorelin Acetate is best prescribed to be taken at least 30 minutes before or after food consumption. It is normally prescribed at night to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone stimulation of the pituitary gland during REM sleep.

What Forms of Sermorelin Are Available?

Sermorelin is available in two forms

– lyophilized injectable

– oral preparations

What Are GHRP 2 and 6?
How Are They Used with Sermorelin?

GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are forms of growth hormone-releasing peptides. Growth hormone-releasing peptides stimulate the pituitary gland’s natural production of endogenous human growth hormone. Sermorelin is an analogue of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). Synergistic release of GH from the pituitary gland is initiated when Sermorelin is concurrently administered with a growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP-6 or GHRP-2).

Why Should I Want to Use Sermorelin?

Based on the literature, Sermorelin has been shown to be effective in raising growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor -1 levels which helps to:
  • Increase bone density
  • Strengthen the cardiovascular system
  • Increase muscle mass
  • Improve the ability to burn fat
  • Increase sex drive
