GROWTH HORMONE /
HGH RELEASING PEPTIDE AND SECRETAGOGUES
Just like Testosterone, Human Growth Hormone (HGH) levels heighten during your teenager to early adulthood years levels decline significantly when you reached the age of 30s resulting in a myriad of symptoms that are again usually connected with "getting older". Low HGH symptoms usually include:
Loss in muscle mass and strength
Increased body fat
Decreased sex drive
A myriad of "age-associated" symptoms
Replacing HGH itself is quite pricey and can only be prescribed based on strict FDA guidelines. This is where secretagogues come in.
HGH secretagogues are medications that naturally boost the body's capability to create its own HGH. These medications are typically administered daily and are in pill or injectable form.
Growth hormone insufficiency is diagnosed by checking your insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which is part of every client's initial blood work during their first visit at opTmale Wellness. IGF-1 is produced by the liver in response to circulating HGH that is secreted while you sleep. The higher the IGF-1 levels, the more growth hormone the body is producing. If IGF-1 levels are low, it indicates that your body is not producing enough HGH.
There are many benefits of Growth Hormone Restoration including:
Enhanced sleep and recovery
Enhanced mood and well-being
Increased lean muscle mass and strength
Reinforces the immune system
Increased bone density
Sermorelin (injectable) is a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone Analog that stimulates the production of HGH. It is taken nightly and improves sleep quality. Also, it aids in fat loss, improves muscle composition, and anecdotally improves mood and well-being
Ipamorelin (injectable) is a Ghrelin agonist and stimulates HGH production at a more constant but slower rate that imitates the natural release of HGH during sleep. It aids in fat loss, developing muscle mass, improving sleep, and improving the immune system. It can be taken more long term as an anti-aging supplement in older patients if wanted.
Ibutamoren (pills) is a Ghrelin agonist that stimulates the pituitary gland to release HGH. Ibutamoren is unique because it is dispensed as a pill rather than an injection. Ibutamoren enhances muscle mass, aids in fat loss, increases appetite, improves physical performance and stamina, and is said to aid in surgical/injury recovery.
