Improved Bone Mineral Density
This is another “proven” result when taking sermorelin due to the fact that growth hormone elevation leads to enhanced collagen synthesis.
Collagen is vital for the development of every structural component of the body, including ligaments, tendons and bones. Should its levels be increased within the system (and its activity) – the user will benefit from not only rapid recovery but a higher level of structural integrity too.
This is going to be useful for everything from general mobility to enhanced strength (due to having a stronger foundation with which to produce power) and is as much an anti-aging benefit as it is a benefit with aesthetic connotations (enhanced strength can lead to enhanced size when applied as part of an effective training program.)
This positive trait would prove beneficial to all users of sermorelin, especially those who may be suffering from degenerative health issues like osteoporosis
Increased Growth Hormone
This benefit probably goes without saying due to the mechanism of action exerted by sermorelin. An increase in growth hormone levels is certain when integrating this product.
It’s worth noting though that one of the primary reasons why GHRP products needed to be developed was due to the fact that growth hormone releasing hormone products like sermorelin are not capable of diminishing the effects of somatostatin.
Somatostatin comes into play as part of the “second half” of the growth hormone release loop.
It is released as a means of telling the somatotropic cells to cease their release of growth hormone, thus recalling it back into the somatotroph storage cells. This is to ensure that we do not “use up” our organic supply of growth hormone and place any excess stress / pressure on the internal organs.
Where GHRP products come into play is that they inhibit the effects of somatostatin whilst simultaneously providing a powerful pulse release of growth hormone. As such, growth hormone releasing hormone is capable of elevating blood plasma growth hormone levels, but it will always ultimately fall prey to the effects of somatostatin.
It’s impossible to discern precisely how much of an elevation to “normal” levels can occur before myostatin exerts its effects, but it’s reasonable to state that at least some degree of elevation when compared to normal levels is possible. On the note of release as well – it’s also important to consider how limited the human body is in regards to when it can actually release growth hormone without the utilisation of secretagogues.
Typically, we “naturally” release growth hormone at two to three intervals throughout the day / night (early in the morning, the late afternoon and during sleep. The problem with these organic pulses is that we have no means of timing when they will occur. We can state with some degree of accuracy that the above-mentioned windows are roughly when an elevated release is likely to take place, but we have no means of knowing at which hour or minute that may be.
As such, we don’t have any form of control over growth hormone utilisation. For instance, ingesting nutrients / training in line with gh release will always be favourable compared to training outside of these release windows. As such, utilising sermorelin means we can “guarantee” an elevated gh presence on command whenever we wish, as opposed to having to wait on our body’s natural pulses.
This level of control is intensified with the use of a GHRP due to the fact that we can inhibit the effects of somatostatin, subsequently allowing us to access all of the growth hormone released with combined sermorelin / GHRP utilisation.
At the very least, sermorelin will allow us to elevate growth hormone levels no matter when it is used – keep in mind though that it’s active life within the body is roughly 10 minutes, so effective dosage timing is a must.
Stronger Immune System
As per the reported benefits of growth hormone secretagogues in regards to cardiac health – we simply don’t have any conclusive scientific evidence to suggest that sermorelin or any other secretagogue can definitely improve the immune system.
Interestingly, we can conclude that it is capable of boosting the immune system in those who are suffering from degenerative diseases that impair their immune functionality (the AIDS virus for instance) thanks to this study.
Bizzarely though, those with normal immune functionality have not been shown to lose any immune function whatsoever in the face of diminished growth hormone presence. It would seem that growth hormone is only capable of boosting the immune system when some kind of immune disorder is in place. Admittedly, this doesn’t necessarily prove that excess growth hormone levels wouldn’t in some way boost it, but it is certainly a fairly solid indicator.
One element to consider is that through growth hormones ability to enhance the regeneration of internal organs and skin cells, our capacity to “fend off” the effects of disease and harmful bacteria should subsequently be improved too, owing to the improved vitality of these areas. This isn’t of course a cast iron scientific thesis, but the implications make rational sense.
