GROWTH HORMONE RELEASING HORMONES
In childhood and during your adolescent years the brain stimulates the pituitary to release optimal levels of growth hormone. As we age these levels continue to decline. Research has shown that many people maintain the ability to secrete and produce growth hormone even after their levels have fallen.
GHRH benefits may include:
· Stimulates the growth of muscle which has a positive effect on stabilizing joints and improving mobility
· Improved body composition
· Improved function of the immune system
· Improved quality of sleep
· Improved healing
· Helps to stimulate the loss of body fat
· Improves the appearance of skin and hair
· Improved recovery from exercise
· Enhanced sex drive and performance
· Enhanced mental clarity
GROWTH HORMONE RELEASING HORMONE ANALOGS
Sermorelin was developed to treat childhood growth hormone deficiency. It was designed to be used for the baby’s entire life by acting on the pituitary to release Growth Hormone which stimulates the baby’s stem cells to grow. In the adult, GH stimulates your body’s stem cells to start multiplying so the increased number of cells may have a more dramatic effect on healing.
Sermorelin is a first generation GHRH analog and has been in use for 20 years.
Tesamorelin is a third generation GHRH analog, more potent than Sermorelin, and is also FDA approved.
GROWTH HORMONE RELEASING PROTEINS
These GHRH analogs are frequently administered with a second group of compounds called Growth Hormone Releasing Proteins, GHRP, which help to boost the pituitary’s output of Growth Hormone. This has an increased effect over just using a plain GHRH, and may provide better stimulation of the stem cells.
Ipamorelin is one of the more popular GHRPs available. The combination of GHRH analogs with GHRP therapy is a powerful tool of Regenerative Medicine and cell therapy.
