Sermorelin Life Transforming but What Is Sermorelin Really? 5 (1)

Sermorelin Life Transforming but
What Is Sermorelin Really?

Sermorelin life transforming (GHRH), simply put, is a secretagogue. It is another bio-identical hormone that’s been most recently genetically engineered to stimulate the secretion of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) from the hypothalamus, which is a gland adjacent to the pituitary gland.

Depression Symptoms, Depression Symptoms from low hormones

Sermorelin injection is a peptide that contains the first 29 amino acids of the amino acid chain that our own GH (Growth Hormone) is composed of. These 29 amino acids are the active amino acids of GHRH. It is GHRH that stimulates the pituitary glands to release GH. As we age, our body produces less and less of our vital hormones, Growth Hormone being the main one. Studies now show that Sermorelin injection can restore GH-RNA to youthful levels, causing an elevation in the subjects IGF-1 numbers.

How Does Sermorelin Come?

Depending on how your physician doses your protocol, Sermorelin will come in a multi-dosed, injectable vial.  Each vial contains a powder disc, which contains the Sermorelin Acetate. Again, potency will vary on the physician’s recommendations for an effective and safe therapy. The vial is vacuum-sealed by the pharmacy for your protection and for the preservation of the hormone peptide.  You will also receive a bottle of bacteriostatic water for each vial of Sermorelin that comes with your program. The Bacteriostatic water is mixed with the Sermorelin to result in the solution utilized for injection.  Of course, you can also expect that administration and storage instructions will be provided with your prescription.

Special at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic

The specialty pharmacies we are associated with allow us to offer our patients the convenience of being prescribed medication that does not need to be refrigerated. Sermorelin injection is a medication that needs to be administered every day and, depending on the protocol, sometimes several times a day. This can be complicated for our typical patient, who is always on the go. Our Sermorelin Life Transforming combination Sermorelin/Ipamorelin product need no refrigeration, ever.

  • Specifically, the Sermorelin/Ipamorelin travel-pens are special in that they provide an entire month’s worth of medication that never has to be refrigerated. Convenient and extremely cost effective.

How Do I Take Sermorelin?

Sermorelin Life Transforming is injected into the body fat, subcutaneously, using a very small needle, similar to what a diabetic may use to inject insulin.  Injections are initially prescribed for every day and are decreased in frequency over time.

When Do I Take Sermorelin?

The endocrine system is most active at night. It’s most effective to administer your Sermorelin just prior to bedtime. Keep in mind, it’s during REM sleep that your body is mainly releasing Growth Hormone, as it’s most beneficial to the body’s recovery and repair during this time. Sermorelin therapy also promotes sleepiness. It helps you get into deep sleep very quickly and effectively and can, therefore, make you tired if taken during the day.

How Do You Measure the Effectiveness of Sermorelin?

Due to the pulsatile nature of both endogenous HGH and IGF-1, a single blood draw is not sufficient for accurate measurement. The physicians at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic specialize in assisting patients to understand how they, personally, are affected and benefiting from their qualified programs. Aside from measuring the effectiveness in patients through symptomology (the study of your symptoms see benefits); physical appearance and measurements, additional and more frequent blood analysis is the most accurate way to ensure effectiveness and your safety throughout your protocol.

How Will I know It’s Working?

Several things should be expected to form a properly administered Sermorelin program. Remember that Sermorelin injection is another form of GH therapy so, your list of benefits will read the same as what you’d expect from an hGH therapy. Initially, patients on Sermorelin therapy should expect:

  • improved sleep within the first few weeks of therapy – most patients at least notice an increase in sleep quality
  • increased energy levels
  • improved mood.
  • After 3-6 months of therapy, patients start reporting noticeable or significant body changes, such as an increase in muscle tone and a leaner physique.
  • Over time patients will also notice a significant improvement in skin tone and health.

What are The Benefits of Ipamorelin Secretagogue 5 (1)

The Benefits of Ipamorelin

Benefits of Ipamorelin is considered to be a secretagogue, which means that it plays a role in energy homeostasis. It promotes the natural secretion of GH into the bloodstream. It is also considered to be an agonist. This means that it contains the ability to bind certain receptors of a cell and induce a cellular response.

Sermorelin Acetate, sermorelin, sermorelin therapy

Mainly, Benefits of Ipamorelin’s method of functionality operates through BOTH the brain and liver, which is what makes it a significantly exciting new entry in the world of age prevention and youth recovery.

Relative to how it works in the brain, scientific studies utilizing animal test subjects have shown that its functionality causes a stimulation of the pituitary gland.  The pituitary gland is a pear-shaped gland that is located at the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain. The primary operation of this gland is to regulate and control most endocrine system-related processes. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Growth and metabolism
  • Pain relief
  • Temperature regulation

In the case of the liver, a related scientific study using the same test subjects was able to determine that Ipamorelin’s overall functionality promotes a significant boost in the production of IGF-1.

So, let’s compare some basic GH therapies and their functional cycle to understand the differences.

  • Growth HormoneGrowth Hormone, as it’s released by the body, must flow through our system until it reaches the liver where it is metabolized and converted into IGF-1. From there it’s programmed to be delivered to whatever corresponding growth factor tissue(s) in the body that need repair and regeneration.
  • HGHHuman Growth Hormone is a bio-identical hormone that is administered via injection to enter the bloodstream. As a result, it is carried to its central operative location, the liver, so it can be converted into IGF-1. From there it’s programmed to be delivered to whatever corresponding growth factor tissue(s) in the body that need repair and regeneration.
  • SermorelinSermorelin is the original secretagogue formed of the initial 29 amino acids in the chain that constitutes GH. Its function is to induce an overproduction of the patient’s own Growth Hormone. The secreted Growth Hormone will flow through our system until it reaches the liver where it is metabolized and converted into IGF-1. From there it’s programmed to be delivered to whatever corresponding growth factor tissue(s) in the body that need repair and regeneration.
  • IpamorelinIpamorelin, like Sermorelin, is a secretagogue that stimulates the production of GH in the pituitary and hypothalamus, which also needs to travel through the patients’ system until it reaches the liver to be converted into IGF-1 for all the same purposes. The difference with Ipamorelin is that it also stimulates the liver to work optimally, which invariably helps to very effectively produce more IGF-1.

The combination of the processes regarding secretions from the pituitary gland and the liver has exhibited a capacity to produce a heightened measure of systems related to growth and repair throughout the body.

Though it is turning out that Ipamorelin may be one of the best alternatives available to hGH therapy, as it not only promotes the extra production of the subjects own GH and, additionally, helps to stimulate the liver to produce greater amounts of IGF-1 in the process, but it’s also understood to not influence certain bodily processes to happen, unlike other secretagogues that have been shown to function in a similar capacity.

One very important point for patients participating in other secretagogue therapies is that it has been determined that it does not promote an increased production of the enzyme ghrelin. Keep in mind that the secretion of ghrelin is mainly just a means to stimulate hunger.  However, Benefits of Ipamorelin has been determined to not cause this increase due to its ability to bind to major control points of gastric, appetite, and growth motility.

Another very significant positive difference is that Benefits of  Ipamorelin does not display a capacity to significantly boost levels of cortisol. Patients on different types of secretagogue therapies have reported jitters, cold sweats or nervousness and this is due to those other therapy’s overall impact on cortisol levels. Because Benefits of Ipamorelin does not affect the body in this way, patients are able to better benefit from just the positive aspects of GH therapy, whilst keeping unwanted side effects at bay.

Ipamorelin Benefits

Very conclusively, study after study has shown that benefits of Ipamorelin – specifically, its relationship with the pituitary gland and the liver – could hypothetically be enabled to be linked to a host of elevated processes.  Some of these processes include:

  • A strengthening of joints and connective tissue
  • An increase in bone mass density and strength
  • An improved skin tone
  • The rejuvenation of joints
  • An elevated process in which adipose tissue (also known as body fat) can be broken down.

In conclusion, certain studies have determined that due to the inherent nature of these particular benefits, it is thought that it could play a crucial role in the overall slowing down of test subject’s aging process.

Hormones and High Cholesterol 5 (3)

Hormones and High Cholesterol

Hormones and High Cholesterol, the silent killer! High cholesterol that goes undetected can send you to an early grave. The popular belief is that high cholesterol is associated with overweight individuals and it manifests itself as excess body fat. However, you can be thin and still not metabolize sugar properly resulting in high cholesterol.

In a stunning study, a group of healthy older men who took low-dose Growth Hormone shots for nine months lost an average of 9.2% total body fat, 6.1% of abdominal fat, and an astounding 18.1% of the deep layer of central body fat. These results were achieved without dieting or exercise. This study was carried out by Gundmundur Johnson, Bengtsson, and their colleagues at Sahlgrenska University Hospital. It was a randomized double-blind study involving 30 men between the ages of 48 to 66 years old. Not only did the treated group lose a significant portion of their belly fat (the placebo group gained weight that during that period), but they also had improved glucose metabolism, lower blood cholesterol, and triglycerides, and lower blood pressure.

obesity-in-the-world

Growth Hormone is an important regulator of LDL cholesterol as well as total cholesterol and triglycerides. It lowers diastolic blood pressure by reducing the resistance of arteries and capillaries, which carries the blood throughout the body. Studies have actually shown that daily Testosterone injections and  HGH can actually lower cholesterol in as little as 4 days.

We urge you to contact us if you have a history of Hormones and high cholesterol. Of course, we don’t recommend relying solely on HGH therapy to reduce your Hormones and high cholesterol levels. Human Growth Hormone is a much more complex medical-pharmaceutical that is capable of healing, regressing, and improving an array of ailments that you may be experiencing.

Contact us at your earliest convenience. At AAI Rejuvenation Clinic we complete the basic blood panels required to qualify you for therapy, as well as selecting and personalizing your blood draw to help us identify specific ailments you are focused on correcting. Hormones and High Cholesterol can lead to an assortment of different health problems including a heart attack and death. Let us uncover exactly what is going on internally. We can map out a program designed specifically to assist your physiology that enables you to reach and accomplish your goals of better health and fitness.

How Can I Balance My Thyroid 5 (3)

Balance Thyroid

The Balance thyroid and adrenal glands (those producing cortisol) are the key regulators of the body. If the Thyroid and Cortisol levels are not right, the rest of the body will NOT function well. This is why these central hormones must be treated along with Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, & Human Growth Hormone.

Thyroid

Many patients, especially women in their 30’s & 40’s, are diagnosed with Hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid by their primary care physician or endocrinologist. These doctors only diagnose cases of overt or severe deficiencies–we call it clinical Hypothyroidism. If a patient has some or all of the classical symptoms of Hypothyroidism, but the blood tests are within the normal range of values, no thyroid replacement therapy is given to relieve these symptoms. So what happens to patients that test on the low side of “normal” &/or suffers hypothyroid symptoms? These patients have subclinical hypothyroidismEstimates are that 20-40% of the population suffers in some way from sub-clinical hypothyroidism. We were taught in medical school to only treat those patients with overt thyroid deficiencies; there was no such thing as “subclinical” hypothyroidism. The philosophy was: patients are deficient or not, everything else in the middle is perfectly normal. With the advent of Anti-Aging Medicine, everybody is treated to create an optimal balance of hormones & to obtain the hormonal levels of our youth. Be it sub-clinical or clinical hypothyroidism, severe or mild deficiency, patients do not have to endure hypothyroid symptoms and the negative effects these causes in the body and their hormones.

What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid?

A “sluggish” thyroid can cause a range of symptoms from cold hands & feet, chronic fatigue, hair loss/thinning, low libido, and depression to weight gain and inability to lose weight…in short, symptoms of slow metabolism. Also, pale/leathery skin, stiff joints, atherosclerosis, easy bruising, muscle cramps, persistent low back pain, mental sluggishness, emotional instability with crying spells, temper tantrums, mood swings, and increased susceptibility to colds, viruses, & respiratory illnesses.

How does an underactive thyroid affect the other hormones in the body?

Because hormones are mutually-dependent, a deficiency of one can create excesses of another, and vice versa, with numerous possibilities for imbalance and unhealthy symptoms. Imbalances of estrogen, progesterone, and cortisol are linked to low thyroid. 80% of low thyroid patients have low cortisol or “Adrenal Fatigue” and vice versa. Many studies have found that Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels are very low in Hypothyroid patients and when hGH is replaced in these people, the thyroid is usually normalized. Low Testosterone levels are also found in Hypothyroid patients (especially men) and Testosterone replacement therapy significantly improves their thyroid function.

Why do patients with an underactive thyroid never feel “normal” again and experience residual symptoms?

Thyroid replacement therapy (especially synthetic versions like “Synthroid”, “Levothyroxine”, etc) improves some of the hypothyroid patient symptoms, but virtually everyone complains they are never the same person after having thyroid problems. This is because they are not completely treated! They may be treated for their thyroid deficiency, but all the other hormones are out of balance or in abnormal levels in the body. It is crucial to test ALL hormones and treat ALL hormonal imbalances at the same time to be able to get back to the peak of health.

How do I know if I have a “sluggish” or underactive thyroid?

If you answered yes to 2 or more of the symptoms in this questionnaire, you may benefit from natural thyroid supplementation.

What do I do if I am already on thyroid replacement therapy?

First, we will test the Balance thyroid and gather all the patient symptoms in order to determine how the patient is responding to the current therapy. At this point, we will be able to switch from synthetic to Bio-Identical thyroid replacement therapy and fine-tune the dose. It is important to also test for Cortisol, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, and Human Growth Hormone levels to detect any imbalances and treat them at the same time as the Balance thyroid. We always treat the patient as a whole, not only the test result.

How can I balance my thyroid?
  1.  First, determine your symptoms
  2.  Then, test your thyroid levels (this involves 5-7 blood tests, not just the 1usual test that your doctor gets)
  3.  Find a board-certified doctor in Anti-Aging Medicine (specializing in Bio-Identical hormonal therapy)
  4.  Detoxification is a key component of your Balance thyroid to work at its maximum potential
  5.  Always Supplement with Nutriceuticals (pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements that are prescription strength, free of harmful contaminants, and actually absorbed by the body)-only way to have the available building blocks to regenerate the body’s tissues and to work properly
  6.  ALWAYS use a Bio-Identical thyroid hormone (the exact chemical structure as the hormones produced by the body and derived from a natural source)
  7.  STOP all synthetic hormones-Premarin, Provera, Progestins, and birth control pills, pellets, injections, & intrauterine devices (They ALL contain synthetic hormones)-the imbalances caused by these hormones usually affect Balance thyroid
  8.  Use “hormone-free” foods and products
  9.  Minimize stress and use stress-handling techniques like yoga, meditation, prayer, 10. Stop smoking ASAP
  10.  Eat more fiber
  11.  Get deep, restful, uninterrupted 7-8 hours of sleep-this is the only way that body tissues regenerate after being used during the day.
