Sermorelin Therapy

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an injection that could improve sleep quality, help you lose weight, and increase energy? Good news! NexGen Health & Wellness is now offering Sermorelin therapy to patients who want to increase their muscle mass, and especially for those who are on testosterone replacement therapy.  Sermorelin therapy supports restful sleep, provides increased energy, helps our patients lose weight, and so much more.

What is Sermorelin? 

Sermorelin is a 29 synthetic amino acid peptide derived from the amino acids of the endogenous hormone called GRTH or Growth-Hormone-Releasing-Hormone. Its intended primary use was as a diagnostic agent to assess growth hormone secretion. Sermorelin’s purpose was to determine and diagnose a growth hormone deficiency.  

Initially, Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat short-stature disorder. It was proven to be a safe and effective treatment for undersized children needing to induce “catch-up growth.” Sermorelin helped to diagnose if a child’s growth failure was due to idiopathic GH deficiency. It worked by increasing GH and insulin-like growth factors. Eventually, other human growth hormones were proven more effective, and Sermorelin lost its popularity, yet only for a short time, as new trials determined other effective uses for Sermorelin. 

What Does Sermorelin Therapy Do? 

Trials have now determined that Sermorelin has unique properties, and when injected into healthy older adults in intervals, it can safely increase their GH and IGH-1 levels. In addition, older adults who undergo the therapy can experience several other benefits, including: 

  • Increases in fat loss

  • Improved muscle performance

  • Improved memory

  • Achieve more restful sleep

  • Improved body composition

  • Increased stamina during exercise

  • Increased skin thickness

  • Increased resting energy expenditure

  • Increased sense of well being

  • Treats low IGF-1 levels 

  • Diagnosis of growth hormone deficiency 

  • Increased heart strenth

  • Improved wound healing

Effectiveness of Sermorelin Therapy 

Sermorelin has gained enormous popularity since it is proven to rejuvenate and revitalize your mind and body. Your body’s production of HGH peaks at age 20. Around age 30, you will experience a 15% decrease in HGH every ten years. This decrease in HGH as we age causes health problems associated with aging, such as: 

  • Decreased energy

  • Lower libido

  • Increased body fat

  • Hair loss

  • Wrinkles

  • Weakened immune system

  • Decreased mental alertness

  • Depression

The lower HGH levels could also contribute to the development of medical issues in patients, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, auto-immune diseases, an increase in cholesterol levels, or an increased risk of cancer cell growth. However, studies have proven that immediately after receiving Sermorelin therapy, patients feel more energetic and have an overall feeling of well-being. In addition, within a year of Sermorelin therapy, patients experience up to a 20% reduction in body fat. Much of the fat loss occurs in the abdominal region, which reduces 30% of fat in contrast to 10% of peripheral fat loss (the arms, legs, face, and neck).
