At birth, humans have a fairly high concentration of human growth hormone in their system that peaks later around puberty then gradually declines as we age, past age 30 the decline becomes more rapid, and we notice that our body’s tend to become fatter, less athletic, have less energy, and more depression as time goes on.
So, replacing the declining human growth hormone, HGH, that is being lost has become a partial key to the fountain of youth, bringing a reversing of the aging process, more physical strength, more energy, and better mental health along with it. What exactly is HGH, can you buy HGH, are there any side effects, and is it right for you? Let’s take a look.
To quickly summarize, HGH is secreted by your pituitary gland and causes a wide range of bodily functions involving hormones, to name a few, it increases the speed at which tissues regenerate themselves, has considerable effect on the function of the brain.
Increases the speed at which cells die and are replaced, and stimulates the production of many other hormones in the body that are related to maintaining strength, youth and agility.
Studies conducted by clinical scientists on elderly subjects showed a considerable increase of lean muscle, reduction of overall body fat, reduction of abdominal fat, and an increase in strength in nearly every subject in the study. There was also a considerable improvement in bone density and smoothness of the skin. Obviously the scientists were on to something big, but are there any side effects to be aware of?
Some of the possible side effects of using prescription HGH include nerve damage, muscle pain, joint pain, fluid retention, numbness of the skin, high cholesterol levels, hair loss, and increase risk of diabetes.
There is also suspicion that use of HGH, when one has a cancerous tumor, may increase it’s growth thereby causing faster spread and more lethality.
There’s also a considerable risk when buying the drugs illegally, many times you’re not actually getting anything at all since there is no where you can complain about an illegal purchase.
Because of the incredible high cost of HGH it’s commonly counterfeited, so if you’re not getting it directly from the pharmacy, with a prescription, most likely it’s not real. But, what does that mean for the person who wants to avoid the side effects, stay within the law, and still gain the youthful benefits of HGH?
An important fact about human growth hormone that must be considered is that in order to gain the benefits of this hormone it must be taken by intramuscular injection. There are many so-called HGH products in the form sprays, tablets, and even drinks, but once the HGH goes through the digestion process, there’s nothing left of it, it’s totally ineffective, as well as being illegal in most countries.
There is however a group of products called HGH releasers that causes your own body to release more HGH into your system at safe levels to avoid all the dangerous side effects.
These HGH releasers can be purchased over-the-counter at health food stores and on the Internet without a prescription, and they’re not illegal. Just how does one find the right HGH releaser, that is effective and can be taken orally?
There is available, both online and at your local health food store, an herbal, all natural HGH releaser that helps your body generate more HGH and release it into your bloodstream.
You definitely want to check and make sure that it is an all-natural herbal product with no synthetic ingredients, as synthetic ingredients have been known to cause damage to the pituitary gland, causing it to stop manufacturing its own HGH because of an oversupply of the synthetic HGH in the bloodstream, it’s a natural reaction, but one that you want to avoid.
Once you are in the situation where your own to pituitary gland has turned off production, you would need to continue the synthetic supplements for the rest of your life.
So exactly what do you look for on the label of the HGH releaser that would be the safest, easiest to use and still be effective in stimulating the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone so you can enjoy the benefits in your body? You want to look for the all-natural supplements called GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), and Mucuna Pruriens have been proven scientifically effective.
Some other herbs that are usually included are amino acids such as L-Lysine or L-Aginine in order to enhance the effect of the hormone releasing.
The other very important factor you need to look for is “Enteric Coating” on the supplements, this is a special coating that protects the supplements from being degraded by the acids in your stomach, so that they reach the intestines where optimal absorption can take place.
Without this coating, it’s doubtful that any HGH releaser compounds will be effective. Because these releaser compounds only stimulate the body to produce and regulate its own hormone, there are very few, if any, side effects caused.
As with most types of supplements that we take to enhance our health, it is extremely important to remember that you won’t see results immediately, especially with HGH releaser supplements.
In fact, you should expect to wait at least 3 to 4 weeks before seeing noticeable results, remembering of course that the results will be gradual as new cells replace the old cells in your body at a slightly faster rate than before. Once you get to the point were you are seeing results, it’s important to continue taking supplements in order to continue to see improvements.
