Sermorelin is a hormone-stimulating peptide used in anti-aging treatments. If you’ve felt yourself feeling tired after little exertion, weaker than usual at the gym, or you just don’t think you have that spark you had before, sermorelin may make a real difference. This rejuvenation game-changer can boost your energy levels, improve focus, reduce fat, and increase lean muscle mass, among many other benefits.
As part of a range of Peptide Therapy options at AsandraMD, sermorelin facilitates growth hormone (GH) production. Rather than adding new hormones, like traditional hormone therapy, it instead enables the body to replenish them in a natural way, which is safer and more effective than regular growth hormone therapy.

Peptides are naturally present molecules in the body. They are the ”building blocks” that form long chains of amino acids, which then go on to make other important bodily substances like proteins. Different combinations of amino acids form energy-rich proteins and also constitute some of the body’s most important biological messengers, hormones.
Peptides play an important role in many physiological processes. Some of their functions include the following. (1)
- Tissue Growth & Repair
- Cell Communication
- Muscle Building
- Biochemical Reactions
- Immune Support
- Fluid Equilibrium
- pH Balance
- Digestive Health
We all have the ability to make peptides naturally. And, these peptides go on to become proteins in many systems throughout the body. However, as we age, certain peptides can decline in quality and quantity. Harnessing exogenous peptides in peptide therapy encourages natural hormone production. Continued treatment with Sermorelin and other peptides supports both physical and cognitive improvements, helping our patients feel reinvigorated and refreshed.
Losing Growth Hormone
Growth hormone is crucial to the development process when we are young. It also plays a key role in ensuring our bodies are working efficiently in adulthood. Studies have even confirmed that GH is vital to every system in the body throughout the lifetime. The aging process causes a number of hormone changes, including a decline in GH production. So what happens when there isn’t enough GH to go around? (2)
- Increased Body Fat
- Reduced Strength
- Decreased Muscle Mass
- Poor Memory
- Declining Cognitive Function
- Less “Quality” Sleep
- Reduced Bone Density
Younger adults usually don’t see any major differences in GH production, except in cases of growth hormone deficiency. But things start to change once we enter our 30s. After the third decade of life, GH secretion decreases by around 15% for every future decade afterward. (2)
So what does this mean in practice?
“I Don’t Have Any Energy or Drive Anymore”
Every now and again, you might catch yourself slipping when we can’t remember something. We may feel less “on the ball.” We may find we’re losing muscle despite keeping the same workout regimen, or we can’t lift the weight we could when we were younger. With sermorelin peptide therapy, you can support healthy brain and body function well into your golden years.
Benefits of Sermorelin
Sermorelin is a growth hormone secretagogue, which means it causes growth hormones to be secreted. It is not quite the same as a natural peptide, but it still triggers the release of natural hormones. Over a 6 month period, taking sermorelin can benefit patients in the following ways
- Increase Strength & Endurance
- Increase Lean Body Mass
- Improve Muscle Tone
- Increased Mental Focus
- Promote Deep, Restful Sleep
- Increase Sex Drive
- Improve Metabolism & Digestive Health
- Improve Joint, Skin, & Hair Condition
- Increase Vitality
Rather than peptides, some people use synthetic growth hormones to achieve higher levels of GH in the body. However, this usage can often lead to a short spike and then a drop-off of GH. Like Dr. Asandra, many regenerative doctors agree that peptide therapy is not only the safer option, but also the most efficient, natural way to increase growth hormone levels.
Other Growth Hormone-Releasing Peptides (GHRPs)
GHRPs are a group of peptides that are not naturally present in the body. They were first synthesized in 1977, and have since been used in numerous ways in the medical field including to improve joint health, increase lean muscle mass, and increase muscle strength.
GHRPs like Sermorelin work in a similar way to natural hormones. However, studies have shown that peptides are very likely to be safer and more reliable. (3) They include the following.

Ibutamoren Peptide Therapy
Ibutamoren, sometimes known as MK-677, is peptide therapy for maintaining a healthy metabolism. It mimics the “hunger hormone” ghrelin, which releases growth hormone when it interacts with ghrelin receptors in the nervous system. Studies indicate that ibutamoren can increase growth hormone production by up to three times. (4) Ibutamoren can help you restore metabolic health, increase lean body mass, improve bone density, and improve skin quality.
AsandraMD offers combined CJC-1295 and ipamorelin therapy to optimize your weight loss and get healthy. Like sermorelin and ibutamoren, this peptide therapy is designed to improve hormone regulation of key bodily processes. Patients see less fat, more lean muscle, increased performance, better lumbar bone density, and improved skin thickness.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
TRT isn’t just for libido! It’s also a valuable tool to help you rediscover your strength, your mental clarity, and your overall mood. Testosterone therapy can also be used successfully alongside sermorelin peptide treatment for comprehensive rejuvenation.

What is sermorelin?
Sermorelin is a human growth hormone stimulator. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, it can help people with depleted hormone levels maintain a healthier, more muscular physique, improve virility, and sharpen age-related cognitive decline. It can also be used to help to maintain a healthy weight.
Can sermorelin fix belly fat?
Sermorelin therapy can trigger a reduction in body fat, including visceral fat, the belly fat found deep in the abdominal cavity. Treatment gradually improves lean body mass, strengthens muscles, and reduces body fat.
Do people use sermorelin in bodybuilding?
Yes, sermorelin is one of the most useful peptides for bodybuilding. However, many people also choose sermorelin therapy to improve their general physical and mental health as they get older.
