Sermorelin Therapy | Palm Beach Gardens – West Palm Beach – Jupiter
Clinically Proven to Increase HGH Without the Side Effects
Sermorelin treatment is prescribed for use in adults to increase lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, increase bone density, enhance the immune system, and strengthen the heart, as well as other organs of the body.
Why The Need For Sermorelin and What is Human Growth Hormone?
Human Growth Hormone (hGH) is essential to our well-being, and has long been utilized in the field of anti-aging. hGH is a hormone released from the pituitary gland. In children, it promotes normal growth and development. In adults, it helps to maintain normal body structure and metabolism. It increases our energy levels, promotes muscle growth, encourages mobilization of fat stores for energy, and protects our organs. Unfortunately, by middle age our body’s natural production of hGH declines by 85% and continues to decrease by about 2% per year.
What happens if I don’t have enough hGH?
Having deficient levels of growth hormone results in a diminished sense of well-being, increased body fat storage, loss of bone density, reduced immune system function, and weakened muscles. Having weak muscles is not only aesthetically displeasing, but is dangerous as well. Undeniably, your heart is the most important muscle in your body. Having a weak heart muscle results a low heart rate and impairs the ability of the heart to contract with enough force to effectively circulate blood throughout the body. This can result in heart failure and subsequent impairment of major organ systems.
Issues with hGH Injections:
Physicians have used hGH injections for years in attempt to combat the hormone’s natural decline. However, this method of treatment does not come without risks. Our natural hormonal regulatory systems operate on negative feedback mechanisms in attempt to maintain normal levels. In an ideal state, when our body senses we have enough of a hormone, it turns off the gland that is responsible for its release. When our body recognizes low levels of a hormone, it will stimulate the gland to release more. Using synthetic hGH injections to replace what you lack can “turn off” your pituitary gland’s natural release of hGH, leaving you dependent on these injections. If you were to suddenly stop taking hGH, it would take time for your body to remedy this sudden change, leaving you with dangerously low levels of the hormone. There are other dose-dependent risks associated with administration of hGH.
hGH has anti-insulin properties. (Insulin is a hormone that prevents your blood sugar from rising above normal levels). Repeated administration of excessive hGH can place your body in a diabetes-like state, and could potentially result in true diabetes. And, just as we’ve mentioned too little hGH can be detrimental to our heart, so can too much. Long term use of high-doses of hGH can lead to excessive growth of our heart muscle, particularly the left ventricle. The left ventricle is the last chamber of the heart that blood flows through before re-entering vascular circulation. If this chamber enlarges (ventricular hypertrophy), it can result in congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, heart attack, and sudden death. So this leaves us at a crossroads. How do we replace our declining hGH levels safely and naturally in order to avoid the above complications? Sermorelin.
Sermorelin: The Natural Alternative
Sermorelin is an FDA-approved synthetic hormone that raises your hGH levels using your body’s natural process. Sermorelin addresses the primary cause of declining hGH by stimulating the pituitary gland to release hGH. It allows us to bypass the use of hGH injections, thereby avoiding problems associated with them. Because sermorelin promotes natural production, your body’s feedback mechanisms are able to regulate the release of hGH naturally, preventing dangerous highs and lows.
