HGH refers to human growth hormone and is an abbreviation for human GH measured in the extracts from human pituitary glands.
Growth hormone (GH) is also called somatropin and somatotropin.
It is a polypeptide hormone secreted by the somatotrope cells of the anterior pituitary gland, in larger amounts than any other pituitary hormone and stimulates growth and cell reproduction in humans.
In 1985, biosynthetic human growth hormone replaced pituitary-derived human growth hormone for therapeutic use in the U.S. and elsewhere.
GH secretion occurs in different amounts and patterns for different individuals and changes throughout life with peaks declining with age.
Effects of growth hormone on the tissues of the body can generally be described as anabolic (building up). Like most other protein hormones GH acts by interacting with a specific receptor on the surface of cells.
GH is known to stimulate the production of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1). The liver is a major target organ of GH for this process, and is the principal site of IGF-1 production.
Although height growth is the best known effect of GH, it serves many other metabolic functions as well. GH increases calcium retention, and strengthens and increases the mineralization of bone.
It increases muscle mass by creating new muscle cells, while at the same time reducing body fat, increaseing protein synthesis and stimulating the growth of all internal organs along while at the same time stimulating the immune system.
How Human Growth Hormone Works
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is like estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, melatonin or DHEA - one of many endocrine hormones that decline as we age.
Many of these hormones can be replaced with supplements to slow many of the effects of aging. HGH, however, goes further,- not only can HGH prevent biological aging, but it can reverse a wide range of age related process's signs and symptoms. HGH therapy has been scientifically shown to turn back the biological clock by as much as 20 years.
The decline of human growth hormone with age
is associated with many symptoms of aging.
These include wrinkling, gray hair, decreased energy, and diminished sexual function. Lack of growth hormone contributes to increasing body fat,
cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and an inclination toward other aging-related diseases.
You may have observed these symptoms in younger adults, and often this is to do with a human growth hormone deficiency. Fortunately, clinical evidence demonstrates that by elevating human growth hormone, we can significantly reverse these symptoms.
Careful stacking of amino acids.
Twenty amino acids form the building blocks of all proteins and are needed for the body to make the proteins of enzymes, many hormones, muscle, bone, skin, organs, etc. A number of these amino acids have been shown to induce growth hormone secretion. The new formula stacks them in such a way that has proven to maximize their benefits..
Please Note: Attempting to combine these amino acids on your own to produce the same results of the careful stacking should be avoided. This product contains synergistic combinations or stacking that has been lab tested over time to produce maximum stimulation of HGH.
