HORMONE CHANGES & AGING
Women and Men need a healthy balance of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Symptoms in people lacking adequate hormone balance may include weight gain, mood swings, lack of energy, osteoporosis, loss of muscle, skin elasticity, and changes in mental acuity.
Hormonal imbalance can occur for a multitude of reasons at any age however two of the more common are Menopause in Women and Andropause in Men.
The process of Menopause in a woman can be a major hormonal disruptor and often causes decreased libido, vaginal dryness, bladder irritability, and hot flashes. Hormone changes resulting from Menopause can be treated safely and corrected to ensure healthy aging. The same is true for men experiencing Andropause (i.e. Male Change of Life).
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you are in need of Hormone Support.

What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is a synthetic peptide that stimulates the pituitary gland to increase the natural production of growth hormone. Since its discovery in 1970, sermorelin therapy has been used successfully in numerous clinical trials to treat the symptoms of hypogonadism and hypopituitarism. In 1997 the Food and Drug Administration approved Sermorelin as a treatment for people with hypopituitarism.
Why is Sermorelin Better Than Taking HGH?
Unlike HGH, sermorelin has few adverse symptoms; this is because sermorelin causes the body to produce GH naturally. Most men report a noticeable difference in symptoms of low GH after only three months of therapy.
Sermorelin has been shown to promote increased bone density, better muscle, and joint health, reverse weakness caused by aging, and decrease risk factors for heart attack and stroke.
Since its introduction to the medical field, many men with hormone deficiency have found it to help manage secondary conditions such as osteoporosis, loss of muscle tone, fatigue, and weight gain.
Other reported benefits of sermorelin therapy are more restful sleep, a stronger immune system, and a better sense of overall wellbeing. Many testosterone replacement therapy patients also find sermorelin to be a helpful addition to testosterone replacement therapy since it decreases the likelihood of certain side effects.
How Does Sermorelin Help Me Lose Weight?
Human growth hormone, or HGH, is a naturally occurring substance that is responsible for growth and development. When we are young, HGH is produced in large amounts. However, as we get older, our HGH levels decline. Human growth hormone is essential for children, and without it, they may fail to grow normally. It also plays an important role in some bodily functions, including tissue repair, brain function, metabolism, and energy.
Sermorelin is a synthetic substance that is actually a human growth hormone-releasing hormone. This means that it stimulates the pituitary gland to create and release more human growth hormone. In stimulating this natural process, it means that patients don’t have to take artificial growth hormones but can instead see their own production increase.
Sermorelin For Weight Loss
While sermorelin injections are regularly used to treat growth problems in children, some studies have also found that a boost of sermorelin can be beneficial in helping adult patients to lose weight.
Studies have found that people who are overweight or obese have much lower levels of human growth hormone than those who are of a healthy weight. Studies have found that by giving adults sermorelin, it can encourage the natural improvement in HGH production which in turn can improve total body composition – this means increasing bone and muscle mass and decreasing fat. This could help patients to lose some of their excess weight, plus benefit from a better shape through improved muscle mass.
It is important to note that no additional treatment will be successful alone. Sermorelin must be combined with a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise if patients are to obtain and sustain their weight loss results.
Other Benefits Of Sermorelin
Sermorelin isn’t only beneficial for weight loss. It has also been shown to have a number of other advantages, including:
- Promoting quality sleep
- Improving immune function
- Increasing stamina and physical performance
