Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone or GHRH. It works on the pituitary gland which in turn releases more HGH into the body. The biological effects of Sermorelin were first observed in vitro cultures of rat pituitary cells. When compared to other GHRH analogues, Sermorelin was found to be the most potent, potentially 4-5 times as potent as naturally produced GHRH. Recent studies of other GHRH analogues in pigs have also found synthetic GHRH analogues to be more effective than the naturally occurring hormone.
Sermorelin has a wide range of positive effects. Due to its nature as a GHRH, Sermorelin only increases the body’s ability to produce more growth hormone; it is not an addition of growth hormone itself. While the peptide has many clinical uses, it is also of additional interest for:
- Focus and mental clarity
- Increasing strength and endurance
- Strengthening skeletal system and increased bone density
- Faster muscle and joint recovery time
- Increased skin elasticity and loss of cellulite
