Growth Hormone

Note inscribed with Human Growth Hormone (HGH) or Somatotropin is surrounded by laboratory test tube with blood, brain figure and stethoscope. Significance and effects of growth hormone on human body

Human growth hormone is necessary for children to grow. In adults, while the need is not so great, we still need HGH for our overall health and vitality. Unfortunately, after peaking in our teens, our body’s production of growth hormones declines year after year.

At PowerMD, we provide sermorelin injections to stimulate new production of growth hormones from the pituitary gland. This offers a natural method for replacing lost amounts of human growth hormone.

What is growth hormone?

Growth hormone (GH), sometimes called human growth hormone (HGH) is an important hormone as it signals the body to grow and heal. Growth hormone levels are high during youth, but rapidly decline throughout adulthood.

What happens without growth hormone?

As growth hormone levels decline, muscle mass and bone strength decrease; ligaments and tendons weaken, and cartilage, skin, hair, and nails become thin. As collagen throughout the body loses its elasticity, the skin sags, and wrinkles, joints become stiff and painful, and arteries harden and thicken. These muscle, collagen, and bone tissues have growth hormone receptors, but there is little growth hormone to “activate” growth and repair in these tissues.

Symptoms of growth hormone deficiency:

  • Lack of energy or fatigue
  • Decreased sexual desire
  • Muscle weakness
  • The decrease in muscle mass
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Weight gain, especially in the abdomen
  • Shyness
  • Withdrawal from others
  • Nervousness or anxiety
  • Sadness or depression
  • Feelings of hopelessness

Reported benefits of growth hormone replacement:

  • 15% average decrease in fat
  • 8% average increase in muscle and lean body structures
  • Improved skin texture resulting in a more youthful appearance
  • Fewer skin wrinkles
  • Increased bone density, a reversal of osteoporosis
  • Faster healing of any type of injury, fracture, or wound
  • Improved sex drive
  • Greatly enhanced immunity and resistance to infection
  • Enhanced brain function, retention of intellect with aging
  • Improvement in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s syndromes
  • Improved fertility, sperm production, and ovulation
  • Improvement in overall physical and mental well-being
  • Improvement in sleep disorders, the better quality of sleep
  • Improved exercise tolerance
  • Improved mineral balance
  • Improved mood, with less depression and fatigue
  • Improved heart and kidney function

What is sermorelin HGH stimulator?

When we are young, our bodies produce lots of what is known as a growth releasing factor. This stimulates our pituitary gland to release human growth hormone (HGH) in levels necessary to create growth and development of young bodies. As we age, our production of the releasing factor declines, so the pituitary doesn’t release anywhere near the same amounts of human growth hormones and hormone deficiency that can result.

Sermorelin is comprised of 29 amino acids found in the hormone GRF 1-44, a hormone the body produces naturally to stimulate the release of growth hormone. As an HGH releasing agent, sermorelin triggers your pituitary gland to produce your own natural HGH.

What conditions can sermorelin HGH stimulator help treat?

By triggering the release of more growth hormones, sermorelin helps in these areas:

  • Increase protein synthesis, which aids in muscle recovery and repair
  • Increase energy and stamina
  • Increases calcium retention, which improves bone strength
  • Improves sleep patterns
  • Promotes growth of new proteins, necessary for muscle development
  • Helps to improve sexual function
  • Produces and maintains more lean muscle mass, while burning more fat
  • Increases cell production and cell turnover
  • Stimulates cartilage and connective tissue regrowth
  • Strengthens the immune system

What are the benefits of sermorelin HGH stimulator?

These injections simply work to stimulate the pituitary gland to release new amounts of HGH. When this happens, all of the above health benefits accrue. It’s necessary to stimulate the pituitary to release new growth hormone amounts because this production drops dramatically after we exit our teenage years. Sermorelin provides a natural boost in HGH production from within. This contrasts with direct injections of HGH, which have various health risks and side effects.

How is a sermorelin HGH stimulator session done?

Sermorelin is given by injection. Dr. Power makes these subcutaneous injections into areas of fatty tissue that is just below the skin. Anywhere you can pinch the skin and pull fatty tissue is appropriate. We often target the abdomen or thigh for this reason. The session takes just a few minutes.

What results can a sermorelin injection achieve?

Sermorelin not only provides the restorative benefits of growth hormone, but it also helps to maintain pituitary gland health, and it can improve your natural pituitary function. Patients find that restoring healthy hormone levels can sustain and promote youthful physiology that has often been lost due to age-related hormone deficiency.

Patients can achieve the health improvements listed above, but timeframes can vary by the individual. Typically, most patients will begin to notice some changes within just a few days of their injection, with steady improvements continuing over the next four to six months with continued therapy.

Is there any recovery after receiving sermorelin injections?

There isn’t any downtime or recovery after your sermorelin injections. As with any injection, you may feel some slight soreness at the injection site, but that typically only lasts a few hours. Otherwise, patients can return to their normal activities as soon as they leave our PowerMD offices.

Are there side effects involved with sermorelin injections for HGH stimulation?

Adult injections of sermorelin are considered to be “off label” usage when used to address acute or age-related growth hormone insufficiency. The most common side effect is usually mild soreness at the injection site. Otherwise, these are the possible side effects with sermorelin for adult use:

  • Headaches
  • Flushing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Hyperactivity
  • Sleepiness
  • Hives
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Changes in taste
  • Skin pallor
  • Tightness in the chest
