What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is a prescription drug that is used to treat growth hormone deficiencies. For certain patients, sermorelin therapy can be a more cost-effective alternative to HGH injections.
Sermorelin belongs to a class of peptides that are known as secretagogues. These are biological chemical compounds that stimulate the production and release of hormones. The complete technical name for the drug is Sermorelin Acetate GHRP-6.
The “GHRP” stands for “growth hormone releasing peptide,” because sermorelin can stimulate your body to produce more human growth hormone. Sermorelin Acetate GHRP-6 is biologically identical to the GHRPs produced by your own body.
For men who may be suffering from milder forms of age-related growth hormone deficiency and may not need full-blown growth hormone replacement therapy, peptide therapies such as sermorelin injections may be a lower-cost alternative. Generally speaking, sermorelin is less expensive and has fewer possible side effects than growth hormone therapy.
However, like HGH itself, sermorelin is only available with a doctor’s prescription and will only be prescribed for you once one of our licensed endocrinologists has determined that you qualify for a sermorelin therapy through proper diagnosis and testing.
