Typically, there are two ways to boost levels of HGH in the body. The first is by using a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) or growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) and the second is by using actual HGH.
Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone/Peptide Therapy
Sermorelin, Tesamorelin, Ipamorelin, MK-677 and CJC 1295 are all releasing hormones and peptides that stimulate the pituitary gland to produce and secrete HGH. They can increase the volume of human growth hormone (HGH) secreted by the pituitary gland. This treatment is prescribed for use in adults to increase lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, increase bone density, enhance the immune system, and strengthen the heart and other organs of the body. Since the increased volume of human growth hormone is produced by the body's pituitary gland, the body's endocrine system will not allow more growth hormone to be produced by the stimulation of the pituitary than the body can safely process within the endocrine self-monitoring system. Its use for adult hormone deficiency is not restricted.
Ipamorelin, a growth hormone releasing peptide, can be added to Sermorelin. CJC 1295 can be added to Ipamorelin. Both act the same but on different receptors. A combination of both can increase the effectiveness and overall outcome of treatment.
Actual Human Growth Hormone Therapy
Actual HGH can also be used directly to boost levels of growth hormone. By using actual human growth hormone you bypass the pituitary gland. This allows you to take advantage of the benefits of HGH much sooner with higher doses. Positive results are achieved much quicker with this approach.
Studies have shown that the fastest and most effective way to manage the signs and symptoms of aging, such as decreased libido, lack of energy, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, decreased mental alertness, weakened immune system is to boost your growth hormone levels. To get the best of both worlds therapy can consist of bioidentical HGH injections providing an instant boost of human growth hormone in your body, and a growth hormone releasing hormone prompting your pituitary gland to produce its own human growth hormone to sustain these benefits over the long term. This is a very powerful combination therapy which prevents essentially all of the side effects of HGH therapy alone. Growth hormone releasing hormones and HGH treatment combined provide more of the benefits than available from either program by itself.
IGF-1 Therapy (Insulin-like Growth Factor)
IGF-1 is a naturally occuring protein with a molecular structure similar to insulin. It is not Human Growth Hormone. Rather, it is produced inside the body primarily by the liver as an endocrine hormone, and functions as a mediator of the effects of growth hormone. When growth hormone is released into the blood stream from the pituitary or from an injection, it stimulates the liver to produce IGF-1, which in turn stimulates growth in a broad range of cells: skeletal, muscle, cartilage, bone, nerve, skin and multiple organs. In fact, the majority of the benefits related to HGH are actually brought about as a result of IGF-1 and other growth factors. IGF-1 and HGH treatment combined provide more of the benefits than available from either program by itself.
