What are peptides? Your body makes peptides naturally. They're strings of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. But peptides are easier for your body to absorb because they’re smaller than proteins and can enter the bloodstream quicker. 




Sermorelin was developed in the 1970s and it’s been found to be useful in anti-aging therapy and weight loss.  Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide.  It’s not a human growth hormone (HGH).  Specifically, sermorelin tells the pituitary gland to promote and secrete growth hormones.  Our bodies naturally produce sermorelin but our levels of HGH decrease as we age.  


Sermorelin and Weight Loss

Sermorelin is useful for weight loss because higher levels of growth hormone lead to higher levels of metabolism. It increases fat burning abilities.  It helps the body use our fat reserves for energy first instead of relying on glucose from carbohydrates.


Additional Benefits of Sermorelin

  • improve energy levels
  • more restful sleep
  • improved memory & cognitive functioning
  • improvements in libido
  • improved hormonal balance
  • improve stamina and endurance levels
  • Increases in the development of lean muscle growth through the generation of new muscle cells
  • improvements in workout and recovery
  • increases in muscle mass and definition
  • improve your immune system
  • increases in mineralization of bone density and bone health


Potential Side Effects

Because sermorelin treatment causes the pituitary gland to produce HGH naturally, your endocrine system will not allow more HGH to be produced than your body can handle. 

Side effects are rare and minor when using sermorelin as a weight loss medication.

For healthy individuals, peptide supplements are unlikely to cause serious side effects because they are similar to the peptides present in everyday foods.

The most common side effect associated with sermorelin is an allergic reaction at the injection site. Reactions include pain, swelling, and redness. These side effects are usually mild and typically go away after a few days.

Who Should Not Use Sermorelin

  • pregnant women
  • breastfeeding women
  • people with history of cancers within the last 5 years, or if any current cancers or tumors no matter whether malignant or benign – including skin cancers.
