Sermorelin is a protein that can be prescribed by a doctor for people who suffer from growth hormone deficiency syndrome. This is diagnosed by blood test and physical symptoms. Often people, as they age, will stop releasing this hormone into their bodies and this results in lack of energy, loss of muscle and bone mass, sagging or wrinkling skin and generalized accelerated body aging.

When we see this, we recommend a trial of Sermorelin, because it stimulates the release of Growth Hormone Releasing Factor (GHRF) from the hypothalamus, one of the master control glands in the brain. GHRF then goes to the Pituitary gland and releases Growth Hormone, which then enters the blood stream and has anti-aging effects all over the body. These effects include increased lean muscle mass, reduced body fat, increased bone density, enhanced immune system, and strengthen heart muscle. People with elevations in Growth Hormone actually reduce their biological age and look, act and feel younger.

Growth Hormone

Growth hormone (GH or HGH), also known as somatotropin, is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth and cell reproduction and regeneration in humans.

Effects of growth hormone on the tissues of the body can generally be described as anabolic (building up). Like most other protein hormones, GH acts by interacting with a specific receptor on the surface of cells.
A blood test can determine if a patient’s growth hormone levels are low and if that is the case, they may begin a course of GH.

Growth hormone has many positive effects on the body:

  • Increases calcium retention, and strengthens and increases the mineralization of bone
  • Increases muscle mass
  • Increases protein synthesis
  • Stimulates the growth of all internal organs excluding the brain
  • Plays a role in homeostasis
  • Reduces liver uptake of glucose
  • Contributes to the maintenance and function of pancreatic islets
  • Stimulates the immune system

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
