Human growth hormones have been a hot topic of discussion in the medical community for decades. HGH has definite medical uses. This was originally developed to treat patients who have a deficiency.
The human body produces human growth hormones naturally. This is released from the pituitary gland. In children, growth hormones are abundant because they are in their growing years.
That is why kids grow out of their shoes so quickly. This is why their skin is soft and heals quickly. Their growth hormones continue to regenerate their cells so that damaged cells are quickly replaced.
When children are deficient in growth hormones, they do not meet their physical development goals. In order to intervene, medical research discovered a way to replace the missing growth hormones. Thus HGH was developed.
While HGH has a legitimate place in medicine, the sports and nutrition industry began to look at HGH as a supplement that can boost the development of muscle mass and provide the body with anti-aging benefits in adults. Oral supplements containing HGH came on the market. Soon, HGH in forms of sprays also appeared. There was some debate as to whether or not the sprays work.
Producers of the HGH sprays say that the sprays are not intended to replace the body’s own production of HGH. By nature, the adult body does not produce as much HGH as a child because the adult body has finished its growth development stage. There are no longer growth spurts.
The adult has reached his natural, intended height. However, for people who want a boost in their cell regeneration, they want a way give their own HGH production a boost.
This is what the makers of HGH sprays are trying to accomplish. The spray is formulated as a homeopathic supplement.
The formulation is different from the pharmaceutical grade of HGH because the spray is administered sublingually, or under the tongue. The soft tissues under the tongue absorb the HGH spray and goes into the bloodstream.
The active ingredient helps to stimulate the pituitary gland to release more HGH. Thus, the spray helps the body produce more, not to replace what the body is supposed to produce.
Too much HGH introduced from the outside can actually work against the body. If a great amount is introduced from externally, the pituitary gland is liable to stop producing its own HGH in an attempt to achieve a balance. The body has a natural tendency to balance its own systems. If too much of a substance is detected, it will find a way to compensate.
There are many opinions on the topic of HGH. In order to find the right answers for yourself, you should discuss your needs with your doctor. Everyone’s body is different. A supplement that works for one person may not be the best choice for another. Your doctor is the first person with whom you should discuss any new supplementation that you wish to try. This will ensure that you are approaching the supplementation safely and logically.
The Internet is full of advertising about HGH and other anti-aging, muscle-building supplements. It is essential that you look beyond the hype.
Do some research on the manufacturer of the product and see if you can find any reviews on them. See how long they have been in business. Try to weed out the fly-by-night brands from the established, legitimate brands.
HGH that is meant to replace a body’s deficiency is typically delivered by injection. It is a medical procedure that must be prescribed by a physician. The formulation of the HGH in hormone replacement therapy is not the same as the formulation found on the consumer market. That includes oral supplements and sprays. It is important that you understand what the differences are so that you will not have the wrong expectations.
HGH may help in the regeneration of new cells and provide your body with youthful energy. However, one must not forget the basics. Nothing can replace a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. Good, clean living habits are essential. That includes not smoking, no excessive alcohol, and plenty of restful sleep. This will give you a strong foundation in good health.
