How Does Growth Hormone Work

The Importance Of Natural Human Growth Hormone

Human growth hormone, also known as HGH, is produced by the pituitary gland to help regulate and maintain many of the human body’s systems and processes.  When we are young, a healthy pituitary gland produces a large amount of growth hormone, but as we age into and past our 20’s, it produces progressively less of the hormone.

An imbalance of human growth hormone in your body can cause a variety of serious, and even dangerous, problems with your health.  For this reason, it is extremely important that your body maintains a healthy, balanced level of growth hormone – especially as you grow older.

How Human Growth Hormone Works

Growth hormone is an anabolic hormone, which basically means that it helps to maintain a healthy metabolism.  Growth hormone is called such because it quite literally stimulates your bones, muscles, and even your internal organs to grow and become stronger.

Growth hormone accomplishes its task by motivating your body to produce and reproduce a variety of different cells – giving it a very important role in the development and maintenance of :

  • General Growth
  • Muscle Strength & Mass
  • Bone Strength & Density
  • Natural Healing
  • Regulation of Metabolism
  • Health of Internal Organs
  • Healthy Weight & Body Fat Percentage

The first signs of a deficiency in growth hormone include symptoms such as fatigue, weakened muscles, weakened immune system, as well as depression.  As human growth hormone deficiency progresses, serious health effects such as weakened bones and muscles can occur – leading eventually to frequent pain, arthritic effects, and possible bone fractures.

Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy

Growth hormone replacement therapy works in much the same way as your natural growth hormone works.  A synthetic growth hormone, such as Semorelin Acetate, is injected into the body to do the same thing that your naturally occurring human growth hormone is supposed to do: stimulate the reproduction and generation of necessary cells.

Common applications, that growth hormone therapy has been proven safe and effective for, include:

  • Increasing Bone & Muscle Mass
  • Improving Athletic Performance
  • Anti-Aging Treatments
  • Mood Enhancement
  • Sleeping Disorders
  • Weight Loss
  • General Weakness
  • Decreased Memory
  • Even Sexual Dysfunction

Of course, as with any other hormone therapy (or any medical procedure), it is important to meet with qualified doctor to discuss your unique needs and medical history.
