What is HGH?


Hormones are chemical messengers made up of amino acids and produced by the endocrine glands to be sent all over the body to stimulate certain activities. Growth, digestion, reproduction and sexual functions in the human body are all triggered by hormones.

HGH or Human Growth Hormone is the most abundant protein hormone produced in the pituitary gland (a pea sized endocrine gland located at the centre of the brain) that stimulates the liver to produce somatomedins, which stimulate growth of bone and muscle. HGH is a very complex hormone made up of 191 amino acids. HGH production occurs largely during adolescence, coming to a peak in our 20's. After that, it declines; reaching a sub-optimal level after 40.

HGH is known to be critical for conversion of body fat to muscle mass, tissue repair, muscle growth, healing, brain function, physical and mental health, bone strength, energy and metabolism. HGH is a powerful hormone that plays an important role in controlling one's emotions and sexual functions. Adults, who don't have enough HGH, can suffer from lack of energy, muscle weakness, emotional distress, and disintegration of hair, nails, skin and vital organs, etc.

HGH is also often called the "fountain of youth" and elevated levels make one feel younger. Average HGH levels at different ages are: Age 20: average 500 micrograms/day; Age 40: average 200 micrograms/day; Age 80: average 25 micrograms/day.

The body produces less HGH as we get older. However, aging can be prevented if the pituitary gland is adequately stimulated to produce a moderate level of HGH even at a matured age or if supplemented by injections. HGH injections give the following benefits: increase in muscle mass; fat loss; higher energy levels; enhanced sexual performance; greater cardiac output; superior immune function; better kidney function; lowered blood pressure and improved cholesterol profile; stronger bones, hair and skin; faster wound healing; wrinkle removal; sharper vision; mood elevation; and increased memory retention.

The effects of HGH supplementation are beneficial particularly in case of children and young adults. It has been claimed that in case of older adults, too, HGH can build up muscles and reduce body fat. Studies are being conducted to find out if this is true or not. Scientists are skeptical because in older adults, there can be serious side effects like diabetes, joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and fluid accumulation in skin and other tissues, resulting in high blood pressure and heart failure.

Is HGH Enhancement Safe? This question has been hotly debated. HGH has been successfully used in the medical community for over 30 years. According to research, HGH supplements have substantial benefits and no harmful side effects. Who doesn't want to reverse the aging process? And what better way is there than HGH supplementation?
