What is Sarcotropin?

Sarcotropin therapy is intended for adults in search of a new lease on life and improved rejuvenation

Sarcotropin is a pharmaceutical, medical food designed to oppose muscle loss and the symptoms associated with Sarcopenia. This non-invasive treatment delivers a formulation of active, essential ingredients proven to stimulate Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) in the brain resulting in production and secretion of Growth Hormone (GH) by the pituitary gland, much like the body did naturally during youth.


Unlike Human Growth Hormone (HGH) therapy — which synthetically replaces declining levels of HGH from the outside — Sarcotropin attempts to address the primary cause of declining GH from the inside by naturally stimulating the pituitary gland to produce more Growth Hormone. Sarcotropin encourages weight loss, positive energy balance, improved sleep habits, and an improved body composition when used in conjunction with a regular diet and healthy lifestyle.

Benefits of Sarcotropin Therapy

In addition to efficacy, the ingredients in Sarcotropin have been deemed safe for extended use. A large Phase 3 clinical trial was conducted, confirming further the safety and effectiveness of Sarcotropin ingredients use in human beings, as well as the benefits.

Some of the benefits of Sarcotropin therapy include:

  • Increases lean muscle mass

  • Enhances cognitive function

  • Improves sleep quality

  • Increased sex drive

  • Encourages weight loss

  • Accelerated healing

  • Enriches sex drive

  • Improved energy

Safety and efficacy 

A 90-day Phase III clinical trial was conducted to confirm the safety and efficacy of Sarcotropin IPA in humans. The results of the 90-day trial include: 

  • 9% loss in total body fat

  • 14% loss in visceral fat (body fat stored within the abdominal cavity)

  • 5% increase in lean muscle tissue

  • 16% increase in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1 is a naturally occurring hormone that promotes bone and tissue growth, as well as other metabolic benefits)

Ingredients in Sarcotropin

Sarcotropin includes a variety of ingredients designed to naturally support hGH production, along with other benefits.

Sarcotyn™ Blend – This proprietary blend is designed to stimulate the pituitary gland and raise hGH levels naturally.

  • Pralmorelin (GHRP2) – An orally-active, synthetic growth hormone-releasing peptide that acts as an appetite suppressant for increased weight loss. GHRP2 also reduces visceral fat via a process known as lipolysis, in which fats are broken down through enzymes and water (hydrolysis). 

  • Ipamorelin – A growth hormone-releasing peptide that stimulates the production and secretion of growth hormone in the body to help reduce body fat, improve muscle strength and mass, strengthen bones, repair joints and ligaments, improve skin quality, and increase energy and vitality. 

Alpha-GPC (alphaglycerylphoshorylcholine) — This compound is made from choline and shows promise in increasing acetylcholine in the brain, leading to increased memory and learning.

L-Leucine – As a branched chain amino acid (BCAA), L-Leucine may help increase Human Growth Hormone production, which can lead to better body composition, more muscle growth, and more.

L-Arginine – This amino acid aids in the creation of protein, which in turn impacts body composition. L-Arginine also improves blood flow which can have a positive impact on blood pressure.

L-Pyroglutamic Acid – This acid aids in the production of neurotransmitters, which may help with cognition, mood, memory, and more.

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) — GABA is a neurotransmitter that reduces synaptic activity for a calming effect. It may help improve sleep and reduce anxiety.

DMAE (dimethyl-aminoethanol) – This compound may increase acetylcholine production, which helps with brain function.

Mucuna pruriens (velvet bean extract) – This natural extract has high levels of L-DOPA, which is an amino acid that converts to dopamine in the brain. L-DOPA may have positive effects on cognition, brain function, and mood.

Menaquinone-7 (Vitamin K2-mk7) – This natural vitamin may help support heart health, improve immunity, promote bone health, and more.

Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) – Vitamin D3 is responsible for maintaining calcium and phosphate levels. It also supports bone health, immune function, and more.

Prunus domestica (Rosaceae plum juice) – Plum juice provides a natural source of ghrelin, a hormone produced by the stomach that triggers hunger cues. It also provides a natural source of fiber and can support the digestive process.
