Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is produced by your pituitary gland and regulates growth in children and teens. Growth Hormone therapy also helps to maintain muscle mass, bone strength and cellular health throughout life.
When just about all you are doing is growing, like when you are a child or adolescent, your HGH levels are extremely high. Your body is literally flowing with HGH.
Once you hit about 20, and are “all grown up,” your production of HGH starts a steady decline. Once your reach your 30’s your HGH production drops by about 15% every decade.
By the time the average guy hits his 60’s your HGH level can be 75% less than it was in your 20’s or 30’s.
HGH production does slow down once you stop “growing.” However, it still plays a vital role in keeping you looking well, and feeling physically strong and mentally alert. HGH is essential for a healthy immune system. It is crucial to your body’s ability to heal itself and replace dead or dying cells with new ones.
Despite its continued need, the gradual decline in HGH we all experience, is largely responsible for the fatigue, weakness, bone loss, and the overall lack of vitality that we usually think of as “just growing old.”
Growth Hormone Therapy for Age-Management
Scientists may not be ready to declare Growth Hormone therapy as the “Fountain of Youth,” but we do know for certain that it promotes the building of lean muscle mass and helps you burn fat more efficiently.
Any physical trainer will tell you, building lean muscle and burning fat is the main goal of any fitness program or regimen.
Once you burn fat, and build muscle, you boost your metabolism, and are well on your way to improved health, strength, and longevity. In other words your “peak performance.”
In fact, Growth Hormone therapy not only helps you to build muscle when you work out, the right kind of work out increases the production of HGH!
Studies have found that high intensity interval training, or HIIT, increases your production of HGH.
You ever notice how kids play? They run, jump and climb at full-throttle for a while, then lay down on the playground to catch their breath, before jumping up to do it all over again. It is their HGH that allows them to do that. They also are “instinctively” doing interval training to further stimulate the production of HGH their growing bodies desperately need!
We may not be able to stay children forever, but we can take steps to increase our production of HGH through exercise, lifestyle changes, and Growth Hormone therapy.
Growth Hormone Therapy
The first time growth hormone therapy was used for as an anti-aging treatment was in a landmark 1991 study.
Published by Dr. Daniel Rudman, in the New England Journal of Medicine, the study looked at the effects of growth hormone therapy on elderly men.
Rudman said in his conclusions that the loss of fat, the increased muscle, and better bone density he saw in the men was as if they “turned back the clock” by 10 to 20 years.
If you are over 40, and feeling weak, fatigued, and/or experiencing sexual wellness issues, you may benefit from Growth Hormone Therapy. However, you need to understand that HGH injections can only be given with a doctor’s prescription.
There are many clinics out there, such as Cenegenics, that claim to provide you with Growth Hormone Therapy, when in reality all they are giving you are expensive amino acid supplements.
The same is true of any website that claims to sell you HGH. These products cannot, and do not contain Human Growth Hormone.
Instead they are combinations of protein powders and amino acids that claim to stimulate the production of HGH. However, few, if any such claims have been substantiated.
Growth Hormone Therapy can only be given to you by doctors trained and qualified to provide Hormone Replacement Therapies.
Have you or anyone you know taken HGH, what were the results?
