Human growth hormone (HGH) is produced in the pituitary gland of humans,
and is a hormone that is secreted throughout one’s lifetime. It
is effective in promoting growth in children and plays an important role
in adult metabolism. Human growth hormone has been responsible for the
effects on development, immunity and metabolism. HGH has been known to
exert anabolic effects throughout the body favoring the tissues, bones
In studies it has been determined that an aging person exhibits lower
levels of growth hormone in comparison to a younger individual. This decreased
HGH level has significant negative effects on how fat is distributed,
one’s immunity and overall energy.
Insulin has a negative impact on the body, if you eat an excess
of refined carbohydrates and sugars over a long period of time, the body
creates much more insulin than it needs, and adult-onset diabetes can
occur. The other dangerous hormone is cortisol, our fight-or-flight hormone,
which essentially tears down tissue, including brain tissue. It is in
a sense, the opposite of human growth hormone, an anti-aging hormone which
builds up the body's tissues.
Human growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor (IGF) have anti-aging
benefits that have been increased immune function, development of lean
body mass and development of organs that shrink with age-the heart, liver,
spleen, kidneys, thymus, and thyroid. IGF has been shown to improve energy,
enhance kidney functions, strengthen bones and lower blood pressure. By
balancing electromagnetic fields in the body, it aids in optimizing the
body in improving communication between the immune, nervous and hormonal
It is said that HGH and its mediator, IGF 1 may aid in treating aging,
by keeping cells in as healthy a state as possible. A cell’s ability
to function depends upon the genetic codes for all proteins, hormones,
and enzymes that make the cell run. Antioxidant supplements such as vitamin
C and E have been known to limit damage caused to the DNA and bolster
immunity in the process. HGH and IGF 1 go one step further and accomplish
what antioxidants may not be able to. HGH and IGF1 help DNA self heal
prior to cell division, initiating the movement of amino acids and nucleic
acids into the cell and cell membranes. IGF 1 facilitates the movement
of nucleic acids giving it the materials needed to repair damage to the
DNA and initiate cell division.
While many hormones can be replaced to ward off the effects of aging,
HGH reaches far beyond the scope of any single hormone in not only preventing
aging, but in significantly reversing a broad range symptoms of aging.
While the growth hormone decreases, the aging process rapidly increases.
It has been determined by HGH proponents that one can reach the status
of elderly by the age of 35-40.
People who have age related deficiencies of HGH have been known to become
fat, frail, and lethargic, losing interest in normal activities, including
sex, sleep, concentration, eventually losing their zest for life. HGH
is being touted as the silver bullet of life extension.
It is important that in deciding to go with an anti-aging therapy such
as this, you discuss with your doctor what your options are. If you are
pregnant, nursing, or have a history of cancer, autoimmune diseases, or
are undergoing therapy- this may not be right for you. Discuss with your
doctor at length about what may be right for you.
