  • Boosting Growth Hormone Without Injections

    Boosting growth hormone without injections Updating the GHRPs and Sermorelin by Richard Walker, M.D.   Ed. - Eagle eyed readers may recall Dr. Walker’s other excellent articles regarding GHRPs and GHRH in issue 3, 2014 and issue 3, 2013 of the Aging Matters™ magazines, (note, they can be downloaded from the IAS website). In them he described how bolus injections of recombinant growth hormone (rhGH) do not reproduce bioidentical patter...
  • Synergy - the story of GHRHs and GHRPS

    Synergy - the story of GHRhs and GHRPs Richard Walker MD Background – age-associated hGH insufficiency It is well known that serum titers of human growth hormone (hGH) decline during aging and that replacement of the hormone opposes many maladaptive changes in the body associated with senescence (Rudman et al., 1990). Thus, over the past two decades there has been extensive study of possible methods to overcome the hGH deficit so as to bet...

  • An interview about sermorelin and GH with Dr. Richard Walker

    An interview about sermorelin and GH with Dr. Richard Walker Sermorelin is being heralded as the breakthrough for the delivery of growth hormone (GH). GH itself is a hormone that has been recognised for a long time as having significant effects as an anti-aging tool, ever since Dr. Daniel Rudman’s experiments in the 1980’s. Those clinical trials suggested that over some months injectable GH could reverse biological age in the 60-80 year old group by as much as 20-years; fact...
  • A holistic approach to growth hormone therapy using sublingual sermorelin

    A holistic approach to growth hormone therapy using sublingual sermorelin why Growth Hormone production is reduced during aging Progressive reduction in growth hormone (hGH) production and secretion beginning shortly after young adulthood is an early endocrine characteristic of aging in humans and animals. Over time lowering levels of this hormone contributes to many of the undesirable aspects of senescence. These include changes in body composition favoring fat over muscl...
  • Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy in Aging

    Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy in Aging review by Richard F. Walker, Ph.D., R.Ph. & Angela M. Reagan CIM Scientific research often lacks direct relevance to the human condition and therefore, seldom generates more than casual interest in the public mind. However, technology resulting from clinical investigations sometimes gains widespread attention because it holds promise for a better life. For example, when data from a study of human growth hormone (hGH) replaceme...
