Human Growth Hormone (HGH)

HGH Therapy

Human Growth Hormone is a naturally occurring hormone in the body. It is responsible for promoting growth, regulating body fluids, body composition, fat metabolism, bone growth and muscle growth.

HGH also boosts sex drive, slows down the progression of age-related diseases and conditions such as erectile dysfunction, and generally improves the well-being of a person.

Synthetic HGH is popularly taken for its anti-aging properties and performance-enhancing ability. Although when it was first developed in the 1980s, it was strictly made for medical treatment for patients suffering from natural human growth deficiencies. It was also used to treat bowel diseases and muscle-eating diseases.

In any case, having low levels of HGH can cause several adverse symptoms in the body that worsen with time if not treated.

Symptoms of Low Human Growth Hormone

  • Stress and Depression
  • Loss of hair
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Loss of memory
  • Decline in muscle strength and mass
  • Poor concentration
  • Dry skin
  • Increased triglycerides
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Cardiovascular disease risk
  • Resistance to insulin
  • Increase LDL (“bad”) cholesterol
  • Building up of fat around the abdomen
  • Reduced bone density
  • Temperature sensitivities
  • Increased weight

Benefits of Human Growth Hormone in Men

Compared to women, men start to experience the effects of aging as early as 35 years of age, with fatigue, weakness, baldness, low libido, and memory loss being among the first signs. HGH, therefore, is highly beneficial for men who are aging and have started to experience these signs. Some of the benefits include:

  1. Increased Muscle Strength

For all ages, HGH has been used to improve the physical wellbeing of men by stimulating collagen creation in the skeletal muscle and tendons. This increases strength and performance.

  1. Improvement in Erectile Dysfunction

Human growth hormone is responsible for male reproductive functions. Therefore, a deficiency of the same hormone contributes to the loss of sexual desire and difficulty maintaining an erection. Increasing HGH levels improves these issues significantly.

  1. Fast Post-Workout Recovery

If you are an athlete or you are regularly active, higher levels of HGH helps to cut down the time it takes to recover between workouts.

  1. Higher Libido

Sexual function is highly linked to the testosterone and the HGH hormone levels. When these two hormone levels are high, there is a marked increase in sex drive.

  1. Better Mood and Cognitive Function

When HGH is administered, there is a significant increase in the mood of a person. Studies show that HGH can be an effective drug in treating cognitive functions in adults.

Risks Associated With Human Growth Hormone

Synthetic HGH is a well-guarded legal medication and its sale and distribution is very limited. You must have a prescription from the doctor in order to obtain it.

There is counterfeit HGH circulating that can be obtained without a prescription. These counterfeit drugs either have very low HGH or none at all. Even worse, they are made of potentially harmful formulations. One could end up with complications that may be fatal depending on what chemicals are used to make the fake HGH.

Best Ways to Increase Human Growth Hormone Naturally

High-Intensity Exercise

Exercises with high intensity for a minimum of 10 minutes will stimulate the secretion of HGH in your body. The determining factors here are intensity, frequency, and duration.

Laughter

It may seem surprising, but studies have shown that laughing alone can increase the human growth hormone by a 27%.

Vitamin C

Studies have proven that there is a correlation between low vitamin C levels and low growth hormone secretion. Therefore, consuming foods high in vitamin C such as oranges and pineapples will help increase HGH levels.

Liver Detox

Your liver is responsible for releasing the IGF-1 hormone, which stimulates the production of cells that increase muscle mass. However, this process is slowed down if your liver is having to process toxins or foreign chemicals. Taking a simple liver detox will obviously increase HGH in the body.

Other Ways

Other ways to increase HGH include taking supplements such as L-arginine, L-glutamine, and alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (A-GPC).

Precautions to Take When it Comes to Taking Human Growth Hormone

While HGH is highly beneficial in the body, it also comes with side effects when taken regularly and in high doses. Major side effects include enlargement of toes and fingers, skeletal changes, and lengthening of the jaw. In some cases, internal organs also become enlarged.

As skeletal muscles increases in size, patients are likely to experience general muscle weakness and occasional feelings of carpal tunnel syndrome. This happens particularly to patients who take HGH daily.

HGH Side Effects

Some people may also experience swelling of the face and the fingers when taking more than four International Units (IU) of HGH. However, these side effects are temporary. Once the dose is reduced the swelling comes down too.

Other side effects include:

  • Fluid retention and swelling
  • Increased risk of diabetes
  • Potential risk of developing cancerous tumors
  • Nerve, muscle, and joint pain
  • High cholesterol levels leading to obesity

The combination of these side effects, especially as a result of taking high doses of HGH, could lead to serious complications. HGH should only be taken as a prescribed medication from a qualified physician.
