What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin is a GHRH (growth hormone–releasing hormone) peptide analogue. Its peptide sequence is comprised of 29 amino acids. This sequence is a portion of the endogenous human GHRH, and is currently considered to be the shortest synthetic peptide that possesses the full array of functional GHRH activity. Due to this fact, sermorelin is considered to be a growth hormone secretagogue.
Sermorelin has been used during research to stimulate the secretion of growth hormone from the adenohypophysis (also called the anterior pituitary). The anterior pituitary secretes trophic hormones. Sermorelin has also been used in research stimulation tests to assess for pituitary sufficiency in relation to the secretion of the growth hormone.
Dosage and Usage
Sermorelin, along with the other peptides you will use, comes as a delicate lyophilized powder that should be kept out of the light and in a cool dry place. Reconstitution is done with bacteriostatic water (BC water) or sodium chloride meant for injection. Injections can be administered one hour before workout at a dose of 200mcg-300mcg. Normally, Sermorelin injections are taken before bed at around 300mcgs.
Of course, as with any GHRH, you will want to use this peptide alongside a GHRP like GHRP-2 or Ipamorelin for maximum release of growth hormone stores. Ideally, though user could still benefit from using a GHRH like CJC 1295 with DAC and a GHRP like Ipamorelin throughout the day and then utilize Sermorelin as a pre-bed timed dose. Do not discount Sermorelin as simply an anti-aging peptide. It can still help promote the growth of lean body mass and increase the availability of IGF-1 in the blood stream.
