Human Growth Hormone (HGH)

What is Human growth hormone (HGH)?

Human growth hormone (HGH) is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. It stimulates cellular growth, reproduction and regeneration. It is normally produced by the body in larger amounts during childhood and adolescence to stimulate growth. HGH production increases as a child grows peaks at puberty and slowly decreases over a person's lifetime. The day to day levels of HGH varies as well. It has been found that the production of HGH can increase after exercise, sleep and trauma.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Deficiency

A small amount of HGH is secreted by our bodies each day and is needed to maintain a healthy life. Children with low HGH are usually small in size, present with delayed puberty and may have slow tooth development.

Adults with low levels of HGH have been found to present with low libido and energy, decreased muscle mass, increased body fat, dry skin, mood issues and concentration problems.

HGH deficiency may also lead to less noticeable issues such as osteoporosis, cholesterol abnormalities and heart issues.

Synthetic Human Growth Hormones

Synthetic HGH has been used to treat children with growth disorders and growth delays for decades. They are also used in adults with muscle wasting from chronic diseases and in adults who are HGH deficient.

In patients with Growth Hormone Deficiency, the replacement has been shown to improve quality of life, enhance lean body mass, improve cardiovascular function and could strengthen bone. These effects are termed anabolic (building up) as opposed to being catabolic (breaking down).

Because of its anabolic effects, many athletes, including bodybuilders, have also used HGH to increase muscle bulk, increase exercise capacity and get more energy.

Anecdotal reports have also suggested that HGH has “anti-ageing effects” as termed by some. Users report renewed energy, weight loss and increased lean muscle, increased libido and better mood and sleep. These, however, are off-label uses and if done, should be administered correctly and monitored closely.

Human Growth Hormones Use

HGH can only be given subcutaneously (under the skin) and is usually done daily. If you were to see products marketing HGH as an oral tablet, it is not going to work; HGH will be broken down in the gut before it is absorbed into the body.

Do not turn to buy HGH online as well. You can never guarantee that it is an unadulterated or safe form of HGH.

Injecting contaminated or impure products into your body can alter many of your bodily functions with devastating consequences. Injecting yourself with hormones can affect many of your biological processes and should always be done under medical supervision. Our doctors will do baseline tests to make sure you are suitable for these injections. Regular blood tests are recommended to monitor how your body is reacting to the drug.

Are There Any Side Effects?

HGH administrations are not without side effects. In large doses, they can cause fluid retention, insulin resistance, joint stiffness and carpal tunnel syndrome. A safe dose can be determined by a doctor to minimize these side effects.

Not all people who have the above signs and symptoms have an HGH deficiency. If you feel that you may be suffering from HGH deficiency, speak to one of our doctors about it!
