Woman can sometimes fear using growth hormone, because they do not want to become overly muscular or “manly.” However, that is an unfounded fear, and when prescribed properly, growth hormone therapy can be just as positive for women, as it can be for men.
Because we know that it helps to build lean muscle, growth hormone is often associated with body builders. Indeed, action stars such as Sly Stallone and Hugh Jackman have admitted to using HGH to help them “pump up” to their on-screen super-heroic proportions. However, just as many female celebrities, such as Jane Seymour, Jane Fonda, and Suzanne Sommers, also turn to HGH, albeit for other reasons than building mega-muscles.
Women can and do benefit from the muscle building power of HGH, but, instead of using it to “bulking-up” as we do for men, we prescribe it for women to boost their metabolism, which adds in weight control. Growth hormone therapy for women improves their body-fat ratio, stimulates the metabolism, and reduces the risk of osteoporosis.
More importantly, growth hormone for women has been shown to help minimize the symptoms of menopause! Growth hormone also promotes sleep, cell regeneration, skin elasticity, hair growth – all related to helping women maintain a more youthful appearance as they age!
How Do Women Know If They Need Growth Hormone Therapy?
Women who have been treated by myself or affiliated clinics around the nation report similar symptoms of low HGH:
- Weight gain, an increase in fat around the abdomen, difficulty losing weight despite exercising
- Fatigue, loss of energy, lethargy, and “the blues”
- A loss of interest in sex, problems in their intimate relationships
- Loss of skin elasticity, loss of muscle tone, hair loss
- Memory problems, trouble concentrating or multitasking
- In women, the symptoms of growth hormone deficiency are amplified by other hormone deficiencies, including low thyroid, and menopause-related hormone imbalances. It is more likely that you suffer from several hormone imbalances that contribute to an imbalanced endocrine system.
What Can Women Expect From Growth Hormone Therapy?
Results of HGH therapy in women will vary depending on age, activity levels, nutrition and the levels of other hormones, which also may be low, or imbalanced. Nonetheless, growth hormone has definite general health benefits for women. It has been called everything from “the fountain of youth” to the “sexy hormone.” Growth hormone therapy benefits usually begin to appear within a matter of weeks, and include:
- Increased fat loss, leaner body, improved muscle tone
- A decrease in wrinkles, improved skin texture and elasticity
- Improved energy and daily stamina
- Improved memory, cognitive ability and focus
- Increased bone density, reduced risk of osteoporosis
- Decreased risk of heart attack and diabetes
- Improved immune system and resistance to allergies
Why Should A Woman Start Growth Hormone Therapy?
The benefits of growth hormone have not been studied as extensively in women as they have been for men. However, women use growth hormone for many of the same reasons. For women in particular, growth hormone therapy should only be undertaken in the context of a comprehensive approach to hormone management. By balancing growth hormone in relationship to other hormones such as thyroid, cortisol and the “menopause hormones,” women can see dramatic improvements in both their appearance and feeling of overall wellbeing.
