HGH and Anti Aging
Without the Human Growth Hormone (HGH), people get old. Although aging is inevitable, most people are not willing to accept the fate without the fight. HGH and Anti Aging are somehow connected, aren’t they? Could HGH help us stay or look younger?
I am sure you all have heard about HGH as the elixir of youth. This hormone is naturally produced by the pituitary gland and it is responsible for cellular well-being through our lives. During childhood, it makes our bodies grow. Logically, as we grow old, our pituitary gland shows decrease in HGH secretion, which leads to many degenerative diseases, daily pains and aches etc.
Studies show multitude benefits of HGH including increased muscle tissue, bone density, skin tone, hair growth and reverse graying, fewer wrinkles and better overall well-being. Human growth hormone has effects not just on growth, but on our body composition. If a person has a significant HGH deficiency, they decreased muscle mass, increased body fat and decreased bone density. To cut a long story short, if you have a HGH deficiency, your body ages faster than it should. This inspired Dr. Rudman and others to publish their study on positive effects HGH had on older men who were been injected with this hormone. Soon after that, HGH was considered to be the anti-aging miracle. However, it has also been used by athletes in order to increase muscle mass and therefore HGH was banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
HGH is not recommended to everyone, therefore you should ask your doctor whether it is appropriate for you. This is a prescription hormone, just like Progesterone, Estrogen and Testosterone, therefore it should be used carefully. If you are an older patient with degenerative conditions, HGH might be helpful for you. One of the negative sides of Human Growth Hormone is that it has to be given by injection.
