HGH, although very controversial, is considered by some scientists, doctors and researchers, to be one of the single most important protein/hormones in human development, health, regeneration, wellness and longevity. A growing number of Anti-Aging, Longevity and Cell Regeneration doctors swear by HGH and consider HGH replacement therapy to be a revolution in medicine.
Benefits of HGH
Most Importantly, clinical evidence and recent medical research clearly demonstrate that by replacing HGH in IGF-1 deficient adults, we can significantly eliminate premature aging symptoms, reverse the biological effects of aging, reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, strengthen the immune system, improve sexual performance and libido, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, restore hair color and growth, increase bone tissue, strengthen the heart, regenerate organs and increase energy.
There is no other substance known to medical science that has such extensive and well documented ability to deter and reverse the aging process as HGH.
In reviewing the benefits of growth hormone therapy listed above, it is difficult to believe HGH could have so many beneficial effects. However, as we examine more closely the evidence accumulated by medical research and the interaction between growth hormone and the various bodily systems and cell regeneration that affect the areas benefited, we develop an understanding as to how an increased level of growth hormone results in so many beneficial effects on the entire body.
Some studies have suggested HGH replacement therapy might possibly extend the human lifespan 10 to 20 years, as long as a health conscious lifestyle is included as a part of the doctor monitored HGH therapy program.
Bone Density and HGH
During growth hormone therapy, there is a definite improvement in bone density. One study showed an increased bone mass of 2% per year.
Growth hormone restores abnormal low levels of extra cellular fluid. This cellular dehydration is implicated in many of the signs of aging. By replenishing this extra cellular fluid, skin becomes thicker and wrinkles become less noticeable. Also, there is normalization of kidney function and improvement in sweating capacity.
Look closely at the skin of younger people and older people, you will notice several factors which give the indication of age. 1. smoothness of the skin 2. thickness of the skin 3. discoloration and age spots 4. wrinkles 5. suppleness among other factors, HGH has been shown to shift human skin towards a more vitality and youthfulness. Children, teenagers and young adults with growth hormone deficiency have experienced the signs of premature aging of the skin, and skin more closely resembles the skin of significantly older people.
Weight Management and HGH
Growth hormone induces decomposition of adipose tissue. The adipose cell volume will decrease significantly. Metabolism is increased, which results in the degradation of fat. In addition, cholesterol is lowered.
There is consistent improvement in this parameter with a usual 10% increase in lean body mass, and 5-10% decrease in body fat. Fat loss was greatest in the abdominal region. The alterations in body composition are reversed. The lean body mass increases, as the adipose tissue decreases. This accounts for the fact that there may not always be an overall weight loss because of the increased muscle mass. In addition, HGH affects the liver, kidneys, spleen, skin and bone, and is protective against atrophy, by causing re-growth of tissue.
