PEPTIDE THERAPY: SERMORELIN
What Is Sermorelin?
– Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide composed of 29 amino acids

– Sermoreln is best prescribed to taken at least 30 minutes before or after consuming food.

WHAT FORMS OF SERMORELIN ARE AVAILABLE?

HOW DOES SEMORELIN WORK?
GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides that stimulate the pituitary gland’s natural production of endogenous human growth hormone. Seremorelin is an analogue 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).
