For a long time the effects of Growth Hormone Deficiency were unknown. Recently however, the effects of low HGH in adults have been discovered. Health professionals now recognize HGH deficiency as a clinical syndrome which has many physiological consequences that has an effect on both women’s and men’s health such as:
- Bone healing and composition
- Muscle mass, strength and tone
- Exercise energy and capacity
- Cholestorol and lipids in the blood
- Psychological well being
- Cardiovascular risks
- Changes in body composition which includes obesity
- Impotence, loss of sex drive and low libido.
HGH deficiency in adults is a condition known as Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency or AGHD. This clinical condition may be treated with recombinant Human Growth Hormone. Individuals who are suffering from AGHD enjoy numerous benefits by subscribing to medically supervised HGH treatment. Such treatment results in numerous benefits for the patient. Most health centers that offer HGH therapy, treat both women and men who are experiencing problems or symptoms that are associated with growth hormone deficiency.
Potential Effects of Growth Hormone Treatment
Some effects of growth hormone treatment may include:
- Enhanced bone strength and mass which helps to fight osteoporosis
- Increased texture, skin elasticity and tightness
- Increased endurance, stamina and energy
- A restored interest and desire in sex
- A boost in muscle strength, tone and mass
- A reduction in fat tissue combined with the capability to reduce weight
- Lower blood pressure and improved cardiovascular strength
- Enhanced renal function
- Enhanced concentration and increased mental strength
- Improved Healing and enhanced immunity
- Help reduce hair loss and improves the hair’s texture and tone
- Helps reduce LDD and increases HDL
- Increased emotional stability, ambition and drive
- Reduced fatigue and an increased ability to sleep
What are Hormones?
You can think of hormones as messengers that are formed by the endocrine glands. They are then sent all over the body in order for them to stimulate specific activities. For instance reproduction, digestion, growth and sexual functions are all bodily functions that are triggered and they all depend on hormones to work properly.
As we grow older, our bodies tend to produce smaller hormone levels. Some of the hormones whose production is affected as we grow older are:
Just like the name suggests, HGH is a hormone that plays the role of helping our bodies grow. As we age and growth hormone production levels reduce, the benefits of HGH in our bodies slowly declines.
What is HGH?
HGH is a protein molecule that contains 190 amino acids that are linked in a particular sequence. It is produced in the brain by the pituitary gland and is secreted in pulses. These pulses range between 10 and 30 in a day and may be improved with exercise. For many years, doctors have prescribed HGH for children who suffer from HGH deficiency. However, in recent times, research shows that adults too can suffer from HGH deficiency.
So, why would adults need HGH?
Though HGH does play a very critical role in the development of our bodies in the early stages of our lives, that is not the only thing that HGH is good for. Here are a number of uses that HGH is good for too.
- Sex Drive
- Bone strength
- Muscle growth
- Tissue Repair
- Heart function
- Mental health
- Heart and brain function.
To combat HGH deficiency in our bodies, researchers have developed synthetic HGH otherwise known as Somatotropin or Somatropin. The name of the synthetic HGH varies from one manufacturer to another as they each assign their version of the synthetic treatment a brand name. These HGH therapy products are only available by prescription and can only be administered through one method only; injection.
During the adolescent stages, the production of HGH in our bodies is usually at its peak, it is for this reason that there is a spike in our bodies growth. On average, research shows that the production of HGH in our bodies, declines at a steady rate of about 14% annually. At age 20, an adult produces 500 micrograms of HGH, however by the time we are 80 normal production will have fallen to 60 micrograms or perhaps even less. Most doctors consider adults to be HGH deficient if their IGF-1 levels are below 200.
