—— a peptide analog of Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone (GHRH) useful for diagnostic purposes and anti-aging treatment.
What is Sermorelin?
Sermorelin Acetate, also known as GRF 1-29, is a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) produced by the brain that stimulates the production and release of Growth Hormone (GH). Sermorelin Acetate was first developed in the 70s, which is thought to be the shortest fully functional fragment of GHRH and has been used as a test for Growth Hormone secretion.
Its function is the stimulation of growth hormone and seems to be a good alternative to synthetic growth hormone (HGH), which can cause adverse effects on pituitary function and it is only allowed in special cases like deficiency of this hormone on children and adults or individuals with AIDS. Sermorelin Acetate affects a more primary source of failure in the GH neuroendocrine axis, has more physiological activity, and its use for adult hormone deficiency is not restricted.
Compared to human Growth Hormone (hGH), Sermorelin Acetate is a growth hormone secretagogue, which means that it stimulates the pituitary gland to produce and secrete growth hormone. Also, Sermorelin Acetate and Modified GRF 1-29 contains 29 amino acids whereas hGH is a larger molecule containing 191 amino acids.

Storage: This lyophilized preparation is stable at room temperature when garded from light, but should be kept at -20°C for long term storage, preferably with dessicant. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable when stored at 2-8°C. For maximum stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20°C. Avoid repeat freeze/thaw cycles.
