What is Ipamorelin Acetate?
Ipamorelin Acetate is a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (GHRP) that stimulates the pituitary gland within the body to release natural growth hormone (GH). Ipamorelin Acetate is a pentapeptide composed of five amino acids and has a biological half-life of 2 hours after administration. It is widely known for being able to suppress somatostatin or growth inhibiting hormone.
As we age, our hormone levels fluctuate interfering with patient’s overall quality of life. Imbalances can result in loss of energy, increased irritability, sleeplessness, memory problems, and low sex drive. Utilizing peptide therapy separately or in conjunction with hormone replacement may restore optimal hormone levels in your patients. Studies suggest that Ipamorelin Acetate did not affect FSH, LH, Prolactin, or TSH levels. Furthermore, Ipamorelin did not seem to have an impact on cortisol and ACTH levels during GHRH stimulation.
Sermorelin Acetate is a compound similar in structure to growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH). Sermorelin has been known to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone.
It is a bioidentical synthetic hormone peptide sequence comprised of 29 amino acids Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat children but many functional medicine doctors are using it off-label to optimize growth hormone levels of adult patients
Unlike HGH, Sermorelin is affordable and can be used off-label Sermorelin Acetate is best prescribed to take at least 30 minutes before or after food consumption Sermorelin Acetate is normally prescribed at night to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland during REM sleep
What are GHRP 2 & 6? How are they used with Sermorelin?
GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are forms of Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides. Growth hormone releasing peptides stimulate the pituitary gland’s natural production of endogenous human growth hormone. Sermorelin is an analogue of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). Synergistic release of GH from the pituitary gland is initiated when Sermorelin is concurrently administered with a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP-6 or GHRP-2).
Sermorelin can be used independently or combined with GHRP-2, GHRP-6, or other Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (such as Ipamorelin).
Why would I want to use Sermorelin?
Based on the literature, Sermorelin has been shown to be effective in raising growth hormone/ insulin like growth factor -1 (IGF-1) levels which help to:
Increase bone density Regenerate nerve tissues
Strengthen the cardiovascular system Strengthen the immune system
Increase muscle mass Enhance energy levels
Improve ability to burn fat Improve cognition and memory
Increase sex drive Improve bone and mineral density
Improve recovery and repair from injuries
Patient Benefits Over Time
Benefits for patients on Sermorelin shown over the first eight weeks of a protocol may include improvements in:
Week 1 – Quality of Sleep
Week 2 – Recovery from workouts
Week 3 – Mental Clarity
Week 4 – Skin Elasticity
Week 5 – Body Composition
What You Need to Know
Sermorelin should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Always tell your physician about all medications and supplements, especially corticosteroids and thyroid medications, that you are taking. Common side effects of Sermorelin include reactions at the injection site, such as pain, redness or swelling; and less than 1 percent of patients report dizziness, flushing, headache or hyperactivity.
