ermorelin is a GHRH analogue sometimes referred to as GRF 1-29. This growth releasing polypeptide contains 29 amino acid and is the 1-29 fragment. It is recognized as the shortest fully functional fragment of gH releasing hormone.
Sermorelin has a molecular mass of 3357.96 and molecular formula C149H246N44O42S. Sermorelin contains the first 29 active amino acids of GHRH that stimulate the pituitary gland in the release of growth hormone. In research this increase has shown a positive effect on lean muscular tissue, bone density, immune system functioning, and adipose fat reduction. Sermorelin has been studied as an anti-aging tool originally by increasing the release of growth hormone, this increased volume of hGH causes an increase in production of Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). When researchers discovered that only the 29-acid sequence was responsible for pituitary gland stimulation, Semorlin was targeted as a testing method for various forms of gH deficiency.
