Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is naturally produced in our bodies and is integral to proper body function. Cell growth and regeneration and healthy tissue are dependent upon this hormone. As we age, HGH levels decrease and we are left with negative effects that are commonly associated with old age. But through AD Precision Health’s therapies, you can reverse the effects of low HGH.
Treating HGH Deficiency the Safe Way
Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency
HGH is produced by the pituitary gland and is released into the body every three to five hours. The production of HGH begins to wane in women in their early 20s and in men by their mid-thirties. Low HGH, apparent in middle age, can lead to noticeable effects such as weight gain, low energy, diminished strength, sexual dysfunction, and poor sleep. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, you should have your hormone levels checked to see if you have growth hormone deficiency.
Many have treated HGH Deficiency through the use of synthetic HGH replacement therapy, but we don’t use any synthetic hormones in our treatments. Instead, we use Sermorelin and Ipamorelin, two bioidentical hormones that have proven to be safer and more effective than the synthetic alternatives. Because these hormones are bioidentical, they are able plant-based and carry the same structure as our own hormones.
What is Sermorelin?
Since the 1970’s, Sermorelin Acetate has been used to treat growth hormone deficiency. This powerful peptide stimulates the pituitary gland so it produces its own growth hormone, instead of injecting HGH directly into the body. By using Sermorelin Acetate instead of the synthetic HGH, an HGH overdose is next to, if not, impossible.
Sermorelin is injected subcutaneously using a short, thin needle just under the skin generally into the stomach or the hip. This is a daily treatment option for patients who have low HGH levels.
What is Ipamorelin?
This slow-building treatment has no reported side-effects that can be present in other growth hormone therapies. Like Sermorelin, this bioidentical hormone stimulates the pituitary gland to provide a steady release of growth hormone. This particular treatment has been shown to have higher patient success than some other therapies.
Ipamorelin can be administered as a lozenge that dissolves under the tongue (Troche form) or by subcutaneous injection.
What is Ibutamoren?
Ibutamoren Acetate increases the body’s production of its own growth hormone. By stimulating the pituitary gland, it causes the body to release its stored growth hormone and the aging process is slowed. This is typically taken for 3-6 months before full effects are seen and can be administered long-term with little to no side-effects.
Ibutamoren is administered orally before bed and stays active in the body for approximately 24 hours, leading to a better night’s sleep.
Benefits of HGH Replacement Therapy
The benefits of using Sermorelin, Ipamorelin, or Ibutamoren may include improved:
- Improved Sleep quality
- Ability to burn fat & increase muscle mass
- Cardiovascular system & bone density
- Immune system
- Appearance of skin
- Cognitive function
- Regenerate nerve tissue
- Improved healing and recovery
- Improved memory and cognitive function
It takes time for the full effect to be felt. During the first few months, patients may see improvements in their energy, sleep habits, and mood. After six months, the physical changes are apparent in skin and immune health, body composition, and healing response.
