Sermorelin Acetate (Geref) is a form of growth hormone releasing factor (GRF) which is naturally produced by the brain to stimulate pituitary production of hormones.
Fountain of Youth MD knows that sermorelin therapy offers exciting results and benefits for men suffering from the signs and symptoms of adult growth hormone deficiency. These treatments are prescribed for unlabeled use in adults to improve growth hormone deficiency and to increase lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, increase bone density, enhance the immune system, and strengthen the heart, as well as other organs of the body.
Use of Sermorelin has been shown to improve:
- Food intake, sleep and behavior
- Gonadotropin secretion (raises testosterone in men)
- Gastric acid secretion and motility
- Modulation of cell proliferation and survival
- Cardiac performance and vascular resistance
- Energy and metabolism
- Glucose metabolism
- Exocrine and endocrine pancreatic function
Sermorelin is a prescription drug compounded by US pharmacies that stimulates the pituitary gland to naturally produce increased amounts of hormones. Translated: instead of giving you an injection of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) that could result in side effects from too much HGH, sermorelin signals the body to increase its own production of Growth Hormone. This mechanism of action prevents Sermorelin causing excessively high Growth Hormone levels.
As a result of sermorelin therapy, the increased volume of hormone secreted by the stimulated pituitary gland is converted by the liver into IGF-1. The increased amount of IGF-1 in the blood stream leads to the product’s beneficial effects by increasing metabolism and growth of new cells within the body’s organs and bones.
Sermorelin therapy has been specifically approved for medical use in increasing hormone levels in children deficient in hormone production. Its use as an agent for increasing IGF-1 levels in adults is becoming increasingly popular in age management and anti-aging medicine.
However, it’s important to note that the hormones prescribed by our physicians cannot be prescribed for the sole purpose of aesthetic issues such as weight loss, improving one’s figure, or increasing skin elasticity. Proper prescribing of such medicine requires that the patient have signs and symptoms of hormone deficiency and laboratory findings that support the diagnosis.
Again, what we do at Fountain of Youth MD is restore hormonal balance and correct hormonal imbalances by providing medically-supervised treatment programs that include customized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
