Hi, this is Dr Shreder. In a world filled with self-help information about how to age gracefully. Obviously, controlling significant medical issues such as diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol are the first order of business! I would, however, like to discuss a substance that may indeed help to slow the speed of the aging clock. The substance is known as Geref or by the generic name Sermorelin acetate.
Sermorelin acetate is a hormone also known as Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH). The function of this substance is to signal the brain (pituitary) to release its own Growth Hormone. Growth Hormone is anabolic, meaning to increase growth.
Growth hormone has many beneficial effects on the body, such as:
- Speed healing
- Augment muscle mass
- Helps with the break-down of fat
- Increases the body’s ability to make protein
- Stimulates the growth of all internal organs excluding the brain
- Helps the liver to produce glucose
- Contributes to the maintenance and function of pancreatic islets
- Stimulates the immune system
The body’s production of Growth hormone rapidly drops as we age. It’s probably a contributing reason for why we heal more slowly as we age.
Here at, Full Circle Wellness, we have extensive experience with the beneficial use of Sermorelin. If you are intrigued about employing this substance as well as other hormones into your personalized age management plan contact us and schedule a consult to discuss the possible use of sermorelin acetate as part of your age management strategy.
