What exactly is HGH?

The pituitary gland resides in the center of the brain and HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is the hormone that it produces in the greatest quantity. Human growth hormone is important for a number of bodily functions, and it is secreted by the pituitary gland.

Perhaps you are wondering why we need additional HGH if our bodies already produce it. Why should you try HGH replacement?

Researchers have found that HGH levels start to drop by the age of 30. The levels will continue to decline at a consistent rate as the years go on. As a matter of fact, some believe that there is an 80% reduction in our levels of HGH over the years.

What is the relevance of this?

Because it is believed by many researchers that the drop in HGH levels is the culprit behind many health issues and diseases related to modern aging, including weight gain, lack of energy, muscle loss, wrinkles, decreased mental alertness, compromised immune system, vision issues, etc.

That is to say, it is believed that decreasing levels of HGH have an effect on the signs of aging. As our HGH levels decline, the adverse effects of aging become more noticeable. Therefore, the belief is that boosting growth hormone levels will result in a reversal of the aging process. This means that HGH really might be the fountain of youth.

How can we increase our HGH levels?

HGH levels can be increased or replaced in three ways:
# human growth hormone injections
# human growth hormone oral sprays
# herbal supplements that utilizeĀ  a natural means of increasing the body’s HGH levels.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of each method? What really works?

METHOD # 1: HGH Injections

Some noted studies have suggested that HGH injections are effective, but there are some disadvantages to using HGH injections.

HGH injections are normally administered two or three times each day. Each injection costs about $25, so it costs $50-$75 daily to use injectable HGH. Another issue is that a prescription is necessary in order to obtain injectable growth hormone. And insurance does not cover HGH injections because they are not a treatment related to a “classified disease.” You will have to pay for this treatment out of your own pocket!

Plus as previously discussed, synthetic (scientifically engineered) HGH is used in injections. That is to say, it is not a natural substance. There is always the potential for side effects to occur whenever a large quantity of foreign hormone is introduced into the human body. As a matter of fact, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine on July 5, 1990 indicated that a number of adverse side effects were experienced by people who received injections.

Pros: Injectable HGH works well

Cons: Injectable HGH is costly, painful, time-consuming, requires a prescription and may cause serious side effects
