As of Sept 1st 2021, I am recommending Paradigm Peptides.
Sermorelin acetate is a drug that is used to help the body produce more growth hormone. Even though companies selling it refer to it as a research peptide, the fact of the matter is that this compound is a drug. People use it for the benefits of increased growth hormone in the body such as more energy, less body fat, increased muscle mass, and a more youthful appearance. However, sermorelin is “weak” compared to real human growth hormone, but the side effects are much less. So one pondering its use has to ask himself or herself, “Do I want a powerful drug with side effects (real human growth hormone)? or would I rather have a safer drug with minimal side effects if any (sermorelin)? The answer is personal to everyone.
What is sermorelin acetate
First, sermorelin acetate is not growth hormone nor is it an anabolic steroid. It is a growth hormone secretagogue. It is a growth hormone releasing peptide that is man-made or synthetic. It is not natural. Which means it stimulates the pituitary gland to tell the body to produce more of its own naturally occurring growth hormone.
Human growth hormone is a controversial drug that has many side effects. Researchers have been trying to create a more effective way to solve problems related to growth hormone deficiency such as growth retardation in children. Sermorelin growth peptide was created for this. Unfortunately, it was found that sermorelin is not effective in helping children with their growth problems. The product was discontinued by the pharmaceutical company and now can only be obtained for “research purposes”.
According to the very limited research data I have found online, it seems the sermorelin dosage is around 100mcg to 500 mcg per daily injection. Yes, this is an injection with a needle. Keep in mind that most of the other delivery methods are a scam. Injectable is the only method that I prefer. The best time to take the injection is at night on an empty stomach. When you go to sleep growth hormone levels increase so you want to take advantage of that. From what I have seen online at a store like Ion Peptides that are selling sermorelin, it is being sold in a 2mg vials of liquid.
Here is the calculation
100 mcg= 0.1 mg
500 mcg = 0.5 mg
So that bottle of 2 mg will give you 4 days worth if you are using 500 mcg dosage.
Always start with the lower dose.
Cycles can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. There are several ways to cycle sermorelin. One is to day a 5 day on 2 day off cycle. Then after your cycle give yourself a hiatus of about 3 to 6 months. I personally would not recommend continually doing cycles. Instead, 1 or 2 cycles a year that last about 3 months. There is no “perfect” cycle and everyone is different. You have to experiment on what works best. Is there a chance that it does not work at all? Yes. Is there a chance you experience side effects? Yes of course. Is there a chance that you have great results? Yes. Like with all drugs you have to monitor yourself or have your doctor monitor you to make sure everything is going OK with your health.
If you want to use it for weight loss you can. Supposedly from what I have researched online, the weight loss results are very good. But one cannot be a fool and not exercise, eat bad, and other things similar. The goals with weight loss is to reduce your calories and take advantage of intermittent fasting, which also increases growth hormone. By fasting and combining sermorelin you’ll have a better chance at reducing body fat. In addition, use protein powders to suppress the appetite. A protein blend like Muscle Shake is perfect. Adding fat loss supplements could not hurt a well.
A cycle of this product should run from 4 to 6 weeks. Ion Peptide is charging about $20 for a 2 mg bottle, so a cycle is going to cost you about $200.00. Not a bad price for a muscle growing cycle. I’ve seen doctors online charging $1,000 for a cycle.
If you are going with 500 mcg dosage, which is what a lot of bodybuilders do, you are going to need about 10 bottles. 10 bottles would be about 6 weeks. This is a high dose and like all drugs, you want to start with a smaller dose. Maybe 200 mcg per day and work your way up. Or stay on the same cycle and then take about 4 weeks off and then increase the dose with the next cycle.
Sermorelin Side Effects
If you want to prevent side effects you’ll have to monitor your IGF-1 Levels. If they get to high most likely you could experience:
- a headache
- hard time sleeping
- difficutly swallowing
- tightness of chest
Sermorelin For Sale
Upon Googling “sermorelin for sale”, you’ll find numerous websites selling “research peptides”. However, the problem is how do you know which company is selling legitimate products? Technically the ONLY way to know that you are getting what you paid for is to view a 3rd party lab analysis of that particular product you wish to buy. Ion Peptides from Hong Kong is a great choice to buy sermorelin. I’ve seen their 3rd party tests and talk with their representatives frequently. Any companies selling research peptides in the USA is pretty much doing it illegally. And most likely they are getting them from China and doing ZERO 3rd party testing. I like Ion Peptides because they are the manufacturer with their own facilities. This is what you want.
In conclusion, like with all drugs, seek your doctor’s advice before using sermorelin. Sermorelin seems to be the safer version if you are looking to use growth hormone to improve your overall appearance. The only drawback is daily injections which could start to get painful at the injection site. The cost is low in my opinion and the side effect risk is small. I would recommend combining with fasting to help with muscle growth and weight loss.
