HGH stands for human growth hormone. HGH therapy replaces the deficiency of this hormone in our bodies. It was originally developed for children. Those with deficiencies of the hormone, inhibiting their growth. Now it is able to be used with adults. When an adult has a consistent deficiency of it there may be premature aging.
It is a naturally occurring hormone in the body produced in the pituitary gland. Specifically in the anterior pituitary. This is attached to the hypothalamus which produces a growth hormone releasing hormone. This hormone then stimulates the pituitary gland to synthesize and release growth hormone. It's protein based with 191 amino acids.
In our 20's we have a high level of HGH but by the time we reach sixty that level may decrease by more than 85 percent. The decline of the hormone occurs about the same time we start to notice those small signs of aging. Typically there will be signs starting past mid thirties. This is not absolute, but for most people they start to notice appearance of fine lines on their face. They do not recover from physical activity as quickly either.
The hormone promotes growth and repair. It is most active during puberty. As you get older it is activated during deep sleep. Another reason why adequate sleep is so important. HGH is responsible for brain function, metabolism, mental health, healing, bone and muscle strength. Some of the possible symptoms of a deficiency may be depression and anxiety, trouble sleeping, decrease in sexual desire, and fatigue.
Studies have shown these can be reversed with HGH therapy. Therapy can increase energy and lessen mood swings, increase sexual desire and stamina, improve memory, strengthen bones, and promote weight loss. The immune system is improved, hair and skin improve as well. Skin will have more elasticity and hair losses its dull texture. Improved cholesterol levels and kidney function, even increased cardiovascular strength may happen with this therapy.
The therapy is hormone replacement therapy. It is recombinant HGH, a synthetic version of the growth hormone that is prescribed by a doctor. It is administered through shots usually given daily. It should be given by a physician, because in order for it to be effective it must be properly dosed for each individual and the symptoms they present. A full medical exam should be given to determine if HGH therapy is right for you. This is necessary since some medical conditions can not tolerate it.
In multiple studies there have been many benefits found as the result of HGH therapy. Mentally and physically, what was thought of as just getting older or as normal is not necessarily so. Appearance can be improved right along with the immune system and blood pressure and digestion. Quality of life is improved overall.
