Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
Human growth hormone (HGH) is naturally produced by the pituitary gland, and acts as a catalyst for glandular secretions critical to maintaining a healthy body. It also fuels growth during adolescence, and continues to maintain bones, muscles, organs, tissues, and heart function throughout your life. Human growth hormone injections are FDA-approved for treating poor growth in children, as well as medical disorders.
As early as the age of 40, HGH production begins declining. This decrease is more dramatic in people who have experienced a minor or traumatic brain injury, radiation, or surgery to the pituitary gland. HGH injections may be able to benefit adults who have a deficiency of growth hormones in their body.
The symptoms of declining HGH levels include:
- Decreased muscle to body fat ratio
- Cardiovascular problems
- Decreased immunity
Human growth hormone replacement therapy has been shown to improve:
- Increased bone density and muscle mass
- Decrease in body fat
- Improve sense of well being
- Improve memory
- Improve the heart’s ability to contract
- Increased capacity to exercise
