Human growth hormone (HGH)

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 and muscles. 

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 systems.

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.
