Geref, a.k.a. sermorelin acetate, is a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) thats approved for medical use in stimulating the bodys pituitary gland to increase production of natural human growth hormone (HGH) within the capacity and safety of the human bodys endocrine system. The purpose of therapies that employ Geref, and its related drugs, is to slow/reverse the effects of aging and secure its extensive treatment benefits.
Geref comes in 1 vial of 0.5 or 3.0 mg of sermorelin, and 1 vial of 2 ml sodium chloride both of which are for subcutaneous (beneath the skin) self injection. Geref is a controlled substance, the control being a physicians prescription which moderates amount (how much), frequently (how often), and duration (how long) this drug can be provided.
For bodybuilding/athletic purposes Geref: increases the development of lean body mass through the generation of new muscle cells; reduces body fat through lipolysis; increases energy, vitality, strength and endurance; accelerates wound and surgical healing; strengthens the heart; enhances the immune system; increases IGF-1 production; improves sleep quality; increases calcium retention, while strengthening and increases bone mineralization and bone density; increases protein synthesis and; stimulates the growth of all internal organs, except the brain.
The recommended dosage of Geref varies with the individuals goals (mass gaining, lean muscle development, fat loss, or definition enhancement) and on other variables like anabolic cycling, personal body stats, etc., but the minimum effective dosage is 0.2-0.3 mcg/day (at bedtime) which is often enough to keep blood serum levels well above baseline with this particular drug.
The most common treatment-related side effect is an adverse injection site reaction characterized by pain, swelling or redness. Clinical study results demonstrated that other side effects had individual occurrence rates of less than 1% and include: headaches, flushing dyspagia (difficulty swallowing), dizziness, hyperactivity, somnolence (drowsiness) and urticaria (hives).
To augment its anabolic effects, professional and recreational bodybuilders often cycle Geref alongside anabolic steroids like Halotestin, Oral Turinabol, Deca-Durabolin, Oxandrolone, Primobolan, testosterone (cypionate, propionate, and enanthate), Winstrol, and Trenbolone.
