Questions regarding Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy:
GHRH is a peptide that contains the first 29 amino acids of our own GH. These 29 amino acids are the active amino acids of GHRH. It is GHRH that stimulates the pituitary glands to release GH. As we get older, the hormones produced by the anterior pituitary are depleted. It has now been shown that GHRH can restore the GH-RNA to a youthful level causing elevation of levels of IGF-1.
We do have it in oral droplet form but it costs more and does not work quite as well as the injection. The injection however is from a very small needle the size of an insulin syringe injection and only goes just under your skin or subcutaneous injection. No one has felt it yet in the belly fat.
