Human Growth Hormone, HGH, has alternatively received both beatings and boosts by the scientific and medical communities and the media. What is HGH? Who should take it?
HGH supplementation was originally approved, and still used today, to help extremely small children attain a more normal adult height. Were it not for HGH, these children would be abnormally short-statured adults.
Although using hormone growth therapy for adults has been both a social and ethical controversy for over 50 years, individuals who inject HGH on a regular basis give glowing testimony of Youth Regained: stronger muscles, faster response time, increased mental acuity and memory, a level of energy they haven’t seen in years, and a reduction of body fat. Mayo Clinic studies have shown that injections of HGH increase bone density and muscle mass, decrease body fat, bolster the heart’s ability to contract, improve mood, and increase exercise capacity. Notwithstanding these fabulous consequences, only adults diagnosed with “adult growth hormone deficiency” are allowed to use HGH.
What is Human Growth Hormone?
HGH, as used today, is also called somatropin. The version used is identical in amino acid sequence to that naturally produced by the human body and is called rhGH for “recombinant” human growth hormone. It’s chemically identical to that produced by the pituitary gland.
Who should take HGH?
Beginning in your 40s, your pituitary gland begins slowing its production of HGH. A continued decrease in HGH will ultimately cause obesity, osteoporosis, mental confusion, decreased immunity and cardiovascular problems such as high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. See any connection between these symptoms and what we’re told to expect as “normal aging”? Of course! Many of the signs of “normal aging” are due in part to a decrease in HGH production, as well as diminution of other hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone and progesterone.
How is HGH best taken?
HGH molecules are too large for the body to absorb them unless injected. The pills, creams and sprays offered on the Internet are useless. Injecting a small, daily dose of HGH is almost completely painless through the use of extremely thin, short needles. Some versions of HGH come in an easy pre-loaded cartridge in a pen-style injector. You dial up the dosage as defined by your physician, inject it once a day, and that’s it. Simple. Easy.
How do I know if I need HGH?
Blood tests can reveal your body’s level of HGH. If extremely low and accompanied by some of the problems noted above, a prescription can be written for you to receive HGH based on a diagnosis of adult human growth deficiency.
When monitored by a qualified physician, HGH supplementation can dramatically increase the quality of your life, while fending off many of the consequences of aging.
