1. Sermorelin 10mg
Sermorelin 10mg is a synthetic peptide hormone produced naturally in the body. It was first discovered in the 1950’s and has been used for many years to treat patients suffering from cachexia (wasting syndrome). Cachexia is a condition where the body loses muscle mass due to a lack of appetite. In addition to its use in treating cachexia, sermorelin has shown promise in treating obesity, diabetes, and cancer.
2. Uses of Sermorelin
The uses of sermorelin are numerous and have been studied extensively. One of the most promising uses of sermorelin is in treating cachexia. Cachexia is a condition that occurs when the body experiences severe weight loss. Patients who suffer from cachexia may lose up to 20% of their total body weight. Cachexia is often associated with chronic illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, and heart disease.
3. Mechanism of Action
Sermorelin works by binding to specific receptors located in the hypothalamus. Once bound to these receptors, sermorelin stimulates the release of hormones called corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) and arginine vasopressin (AVP). These two hormones stimulate the pituitary gland to produce adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), which then stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol. Cortisol is responsible for increasing blood sugar levels and stimulating hunger.
Sermorelin is administered orally at doses ranging from 0.05 mg/kg to 1 mg/kg. A typical dose would be around 0.1 mg/kg.
5. Side Effects
Side effects of sermorelin are rare and mild. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, and insomnia.
