Get the facts — and understand proven ways to promote healthy aging.
Nowadays there are some people who believe they've found youths fountain – A hormone that helps you lose weight, reduce wrinkles, lower blood pressure, adds muscle mass, increases energy and actually reverses the aging process. It sounds like a fantasy, but it's actually something our bodies create naturally– Human Growth Hormone.
Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland — a pea-sized structure at the base of the brain — to fuel childhood growth and help maintain tissues and organs throughout life. Beginning in the middle age, however, the pituitary gland slowly reduces the amount of growth hormone it produces. This natural slowdown has prompted an interest in the use of synthetic human growth hormone (HGH) to stave off the realities of old age.
Who needs to take human growth hormone?
Synthetic human growth hormone, which must be injected, is available by prescription. It's approved to treat adults who have true growth hormone deficiency.
For adults who have a growth hormone deficiency, injections of human growth hormone can:
- Increase bone density
- Increase muscle mass
- Decrease body fat
- Increase exercise capacity
- Increase libido
What can human growth hormone do for otherwise healthy adults?
Studies of healthy adults taking human growth hormone are limited. Although it appears that human growth hormone injections can increase muscle mass and reduce the amount of body fat in healthy older adults, the increase in muscle doesn’t translate into increased strength.
HGH is an incredible substance and has tons of proven benefits. An article in the New England Journal which showed results of a study on HGH proved it could improve brain function and memory as well as increase your mental focus. HGH can also help you sleep soundly, improve your sexual performance and drive and even boost your energy and endurance. In addition, you will experience an increase in muscle tone, a loss of body fat and a reduction of wrinkles. These results are incredible and show that HGH actually does work.
