Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
and Sermorelin Therapy
Human growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. It is a naturally-occurring hormone in the body. HGH is important for growth, cell regeneration and cell reproduction. With HGH, your body’s regeneration process is enhanced to the levels you enjoyed when you were younger. HGH helps to maintain, build and repair healthy tissue in the brain and other organs. Athletes and fitness enthusiasts are drawn to its ability to erase old injuries. It gives an aging body access to a high set of performance benchmarks. This helps to build muscle mass, boost metabolism and burn fat.

What is Human Growth Hormone Therapy?
Growth Hormone Therapy using Bio-identical HGH
Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is a protein-based hormone. HGH stimulates growth, cell reproduction and generation. This hormone also regulates body composition and body fluids, affects muscle growth and strength, controls sugar and fat metabolism, and may even influence heart function. Bio-identical Growth Hormone Therapy is highly effective at reducing or even reversing the signs of illness, injury and aging.
What is Sermorelin Therapy?
Growth Hormone Stimulation Therapy using Sermorelin
While aging, in and of itself, is not a disease, it can result in adverse changes in body composition and function. And, while aging is associated with a mild form of adult growth hormone deficiency (GHD), growth hormone replacement with Sermorelin has met with, in some cases, significant success.
Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy has been referred to in the anti aging community as the fountain of youth. Growth hormone declines in men and women equally as we age. Sermorelin, a blend of amino acids, is the latest advancement in anti aging medicine that stimulates your own bodies ability to produce more growth hormone. Sermorelin is much less expensive than Bio-Identical HGH Therapy and has been shown to be a very safe method to stimulating your pituitary gland to produce growth hormone.
During the initial visit, which takes less than an hour, you will complete a comprehensive, men’s health assessment. Blood for labs will be drawn, and take and measure other vitals.
On the second visit, you will meet with your medical provider to discuss your lab results, health assessment, and goals to create a personalized treatment plan. This also takes less than an hour.
The treatment regimen is based on your individual needs. Human Growth Hormone or Sermoreline Therapy Patients will typically be prescribed a nightly treatment regime tailered to the patients needs.
Once your treatment plan is underway, your medical provider will stay up-to-date on your progress through feedback from you, regular labs, and leading-edge technology that optimizes treatments to maximize your health and wellness.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) improves physical capacity by stimulating collagen synthesis and increasing muscle strength. Muscle mass tends to decline as you age. Stimulating lean muscle growth reduces age-related tissue loss.
Obese individuals often have limited release of growth hormones. HGH and dietary restrictions result in larger weight losses than diet alone. Hgh accelerates the breakdown of lipids (fats) into energy the body can use.
HGH deficiency treated with growth hormone injections improves the quality of life and psychological well-being of patients. A study of adults with HGH deficiency showed that concentration, cognitive ability, and mood improved after six months of HGH treatment.
Lack of sleep alters pituitary and hypothalamus function. Individuals with sleep deprivation have decreased HGH release. This can further disturb the sleep-wake cycle.
Effective metabolism of lipids and reduced body mass reduces the risk of heart disease. Fatty plaque blockages are less likely among patients without HGH deficiencies.
Hgh and IGF-1 together stimulate bone-forming and bone-resorbing cells for denser, stronger bones. For people susceptible to age-related osteoporosis, this can prevent painful fractures later.
For athlete and accident victims, HGH therapy for healing stimulates bone growth. Hgh also stimulates cellular regeneration to speed healing. Local application of HGH speeds up fracture healing without affecting the entire body.
