Sermorelin with Glycine

Body Composition/Anti-Aging

Sermorelin with Glycine is a combination treatment that stimulates the body’s production of growth hormones in order to combat the physical effects of aging and repair damaged tissue. Sermorelin is a man-made hormone composed of amino acids, otherwise known as “the building blocks of life.” Amino acids are vital for helping to build proteins in our cells and contribute many health benefits to our bodies, such as: 

  • Vibrant skin and hair
  • Strong nails
  • Higher energy levels
  • More muscle mass
  • A stronger immune system
  • Growth and repair of body tissue
  • Improved Metabolism
  • A healthy digestive system 

Sermorelin is similar in structure to a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), and when combined with the amino acid and neurotransmitter Glycine, the pituitary gland is stimulated to naturally secrete growth hormones without unwanted effects like also producing higher levels of prolactin. This effective treatment is used for age management and longevity therapy in adults with a decrease in growth hormone production that happens as a result of aging. Preserve your longevity so that you can keep enjoying everything life has to offer while feeling your best. Schedule a personal consultation at Swan Medical in Los Gatos.

Sermorelin with Glycine is an easy and effective way to treat a growth hormone imbalance and prevent the effects of aging, such as fatigue, sleeplessness, loss of muscle mass and struggles with memory. Manufactured human growth hormone (GH) treatments have several documented side effects.[1] However, Sermorelin with Glycine works differently than injecting a growth hormone because it instead stimulates the body’s own production of growth hormones. As a result, it does not carry the same risks and serious side effects as injecting a manufactured human growth hormone. Sermorelin with Glycine can also be conveniently administered in the privacy and comfort of your own home. If you are considering Sermorelin with Glycine treatment, contact Dr. Castillo’s office at (925) 905-9922 or by filling out our convenient online contact form to schedule your free consultation. 


Who wouldn’t want to become a stronger, younger, and more optimized version of themselves? Together, Sermorelin and Glycine work to improve your body’s natural hormonal balance and stimulate the body’s production and release of growth hormones by the pituitary gland. Some of the most noticeable benefits of this age management treatment include higher energy levels, the increased ability to burn fat, more lean muscle mass, better sleep quality, and enhanced memory and sex drive. Because this combination works to stimulate the body’s natural production of growth hormones, rather than injecting manufactured hormones, it is also a safer alternative to human growth hormone (hGH) therapy.


Most healthy adults can successfully use Sermorelin with Glycine to reverse some of the negative effects of aging due to a growth hormone imbalance. Patients with certain medical conditions may need to avoid this treatment, and a prescription is required. During your free personal consultation with Dr. Castillo you will explore any risk factors and determine if Sermorelin with Glycine treatment is right for you.

There is very little patients need to do in order to prepare for a Sermorelin with Glycine treatment other than consult with a physician and receive a treatment plan and prescription. Because it is an amino acid-based approach there are also no serious side effects – only benefits that you will begin seeing almost immediately! ​​Most patients begin with a 6 month treatment plan, but it is safe to continue treatment year-round if necessary. 


When you are ready to begin treatment, you will receive your Sermorelin with Glycine as an injectable treatment that is usually taken 5 days per week, with 2 days off. The injections are administered in the privacy of your own home with a very small, delicate needle similar to those used for insulin injections. The injections should be administered at night, after eating, and are usually given on or around the fatty skin of the belly or thigh. It is recommended to switch the location of the injection sites in order to minimize any slight discomfort. 


Sermorelin use has minimal risks associated with its use, and recovery time after an injection treatment is immediate. You may experience slight swelling or bruising around the injection site that will most likely go away as your body adjusts to the injections. As with any synthetic drug there is the possibility of an allergic reaction so it is important to monitor for any symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, such as: hives/rashes; swelling of the mouth, tongue, lips, or face; shortness of breath; or tightness in the chest. If you notice any of those symptoms, immediately call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.


Sermorelin and Glycine, when used together, are the ideal combination for increasing the body’s natural growth hormone release. Benefits of using this hormone power couple provide rejuvenation and leave you feeling like a younger version of you, with improved ability to burn fat, better sleep quality, less daytime fatigue, and greater mental clarity.

Think of using Sermorelin with Glycine as a treatment marathon rather than a sprint. Because it takes time to change your body’s biochemistry, this powerful solution offers long-term results. Most patients see the full effects of using Sermorelin with Glycine within 2-3 months. Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

Sermorelin with Glycine can be used as its own stand-alone treatment or can be added to your already-existing hormone replacement therapy (HRT) treatment plan. Dr. Castillo will work with you to determine the best possible treatment options based on your individual needs.

What is Sermorelin with Glycine? 

Sermorelin is a synthetic peptide hormone made up of 29 distinct amino acids that mimics the actions of the body’s naturally-occurring growth hormone releasing hormones (GHRH). When combined with the amino acid Glycine, which also acts as a neurotransmitter, the body is stimulated to produce more growth hormones in a safer treatment than injecting manufactured human growth hormones directly.2 This peptide-based treatment is available only to patients with a prescription.

How is Sermorelin with Glycine used?

Under the supervision of a prescribing physician, this treatment is usually self-injected into the skin on a nightly basis multiple days per week using a small needle for minimal discomfort

What are the side effects of Sermorelin with Glycine? 

There are very few side effects associated with the use of Sermorelin with Glycine. Some patients may experience short-term swelling or bruising around the injection site that will most likely go away as your body adjusts to the injections. 

Sermorelin vs. human growth hormone (hGH): What’s the difference?

You may be wondering why it is necessary to inject Sermorelin with Glycine rather than just injecting human growth hormone (hGH) itself. Over the last few decades many people have used genetically-engineered human growth hormones, but they have many documented risks and side effects[1] that make using Sermorelin with Glycine a much safer and more attractive option.
