Sermorelin For Weight Loss

Sermorelin is a synthetic form of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), which is naturally produced in the brain. Sermorelin is often used for weight loss applications as it promotes the release of human growth hormone (HGH). An increase in HGH levels leads to an increase in “Insulin-like Growth Factor-1” (IGF-1), IGF-1 is directly linked to increases in metabolic function. In laymans terms, Sermorelin triggers your body to increase its energy consumption, leading to weight loss.  Additionally, HGH is responsible for many other benefits, such as; increased muscle mass, improved sleep quality, improved liver function, and higher bone density. 

Although in-depth research directly targeting weight loss with Sermorelin is thin, a 2020 study by Deepankar et al. noted that Sermorelin has the potential to “significantly improve body composition” by stimulating the release of human growth hormone.

How Fast Can You Lose Weight on Sermorelin?

Peak levels of Sermorelin are reached within 5-20 minutes of injection. As Sermorelin works by helping your body naturally increase its HGH levels, you will begin to notice positive mental and physical effects within a few weeks of starting treatment. 

However, the positive effects on body composition may take between three to six months to show themselves. Some studies show that after a year of treatment, patients experience an overall loss of 20% body fat, most being lost from the abdominal region. These results can be expedited with an effective diet and workout routine. 

Remember that there is no secret pill or injection that will solve your weight loss problems immediately. Sermorelin is a helpful stepping stone to a better, healthier you.

Does Sermorelin Burn Belly Fat?

Sermorelin may help to reduce body fat and specifically abdominal fat. Growth hormone plays a role in metabolism and energy use by the body, and low levels of growth hormone have been associated with increased body fat. Supplementation with Sermorelin or other growth hormone forms may help increase metabolism and promote the breakdown of fat, which could lead to weight loss and a reduction in abdominal fat.

 

Sermorelin Dosage For Weight Loss

Although there is overwhelming interest in the application of Sermorelin for weight loss, studies on the subject are thin. In the studies that have been conducted, a clinical dose falls somewhere in the area of 1 mcg (microgram) per kg of body weight. 

If you are interested in using Sermorelin for weight loss, reach out to a medical professional that can more accurately evaluate your needs for weight loss. 

 

What Are The Benefits of Sermorelin

As you get older, just like any process in your body, your ability to produce HGH decreases. As HGH is responsible for managing a number of important functions like metabolism, a loss of HGH can be detrimental to your well-being. Fortunately, Sermorelin acts like a starter for your body’s ability to produce HGH, which means supplementing with Sermorelin can provide a host of positive benefits such as:

It is important to note that individual results may vary and that Sermorelin should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional. If you are considering using Sermorelin, it is important to discuss the potential benefits and risks with your healthcare provider to determine if it is appropriate for you.

While studies on the use of Sermorelin for weight loss are limited, a 2020 study by Deepankar et al. found that Sermorelin has the potential to “significantly improve body composition” by stimulating the release of human growth hormone. 

The effects of Sermorelin on body composition may take three to six months to show, with some studies showing that after a year of treatment, patients experience an overall loss of 20% body fat, particularly in the abdominal region. 

The recommended dosage for weight loss is one microgram (mcg) per kilogram of body weight. Still, it is important to consult with a medical professional to determine the appropriate dosage for individual needs. Sermorelin can cause mild side effects such as injection site pain and headache, but serious side effects such as swelling and difficulty breathing may occur in rare cases.
