Sermorelin is a synthetically made version of the peptide Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH), which is responsible for stimulating natural growth hormone production.

This stimulation of growth hormone production helps increase muscle mass, decrease body fat, enhance recovery, improve sleep, enhance flexibility and joint health, and improve overall health and wellness.
