Sermorelin therapy is most effective when used as a long-term program to prevent the signs and symptoms associated with aging. We recommend a minimum of six months of sermorelin treatment for the best results. Sermorelin can be used indefinitely with minimal side effects for long-term use. Results can be seen within the first couple of months of treatment with most patients; an increase in energy levels, improved sexual performance with increased sex drive, improved sleep patterns with deeper and more restful sleep, and changes in body composition with increases in lean muscle definition and decreasing body fat. Sermorelin has been effective in increasing bone density through increasing calcium retention and mineralization of bone. Physiological aesthetic changes are noticed with thicker hair, increased skin elasticity, and decreased cellulite and wrinkles. Patients may also experience an increased ability to recover from injury or illness along with decreases in joint and muscle pain, fatigue, and depression. Overall improvements in mental focus and function are also a common treatment result.
