Sermorelin: The Science of Youthful Aging

All That’s Old

You’ve heard it before – all that’s old is new again. It’s true with fashion fads, hairstyles, and make-up. Wouldn’t it be amazing if it were true of our bodies, too? We’re all looking for that magic elixir; our youth in a bottle. We’re nowhere near finding that right now, but there are many things available that can make us look and feel younger and more vibrant.


By now you’re probably familiar with the word peptides. You can get a better idea of what peptides are here. Peptides are chemicals in the body that bond with other chemicals and each has a different, specialized set of functions. Peptides can be used for a plethora of things related to health and wellness like:

  • Anti-aging
  • Tissue repair
  • Gut healing
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Weight loss

Peptide therapy is a fairly new treatment modality but can be very effective, especially in helping us to regain some of our youth.


One of these peptides, Sermorelin, has been researched for several decades. Sermorelin is a synthetic version of a growth hormone (GH) that acts on the pituitary gland. It attaches itself to the appropriate GH receptor on the pituitary gland and causes growth hormone to be released. Essentially, peptides like Sermorelin work because they mimic functions that already occur naturally within the body. They cause the body to do something it already does or did more of when we were younger.

Growth hormones are interesting in that they are most prevalent during childhood but they do help maintain health of cells and tissues throughout our lives. The level of secretion of growth hormones decreases as we age, which, in turn, may cause some of the signs of aging like loss of lean muscle mass.

Using Sermorelin

Sermorelin can be used in a variety of ways in a peptide treatment. APEX Hormone Health uses it for:

  • Increasing muscle mass
  • Increasing strength
  • Decreasing body fat (weight loss)
  • Better sleep
  • Quicker recovery after a workout
  • Lessening achy joints

It has also been shown to be a promising tool in managing aging in men, especially as it relates to low testosterone levels and the physical characteristics of low T.

Possible Side Effects

There are possible side effects from Sermorelin. Some of these are:

  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Facial flushing
  • Strange taste in the mouth
  • Vomiting
  • Redness at the injection site

Overall, Sermorelin is considered safe, but it can interact with other medications, including some thyroid medication, aspirin, and insulin. It’s best if you consult a medical practitioner before using Sermorelin.
