HGH For Antiaging
The human growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone that is made by your body in the pituitary gland. It is often marketed as an anti-aging hormone. In children, it is important for normal growth. In adults, HGH helps regulate and maintain your tissues and organs. Children sometime receive HGH injections because a lack of HGH in their body is impacting their growth rate. HGH is mainly responsible for all the growth process and changes that occur in teenage when a child starts turning into an adult. As a person grows older, the amount of HGH being produced by the pituitary gland starts being reduced considerably hence causing all the changes that come with old age such as wrinkling of skin etc.
Like many hormones, HGH levels decrease as a person gets older. This is a normal part of aging and happens to everyone. HGH is becoming a popular anti-aging supplement gaining immense popularity all over the world. Because HGH is only available in injection form (other forms of HGH have not been proven effective) HGH must be given by a qualified doctor. The cost for one year of HGH injections can be more than $15,000. This is extremely expensive and not everyone can afford this. However, if you want to turn the clock back, you're going to have to pay a price for it. The price you pay comes by the way of long bills of over $15,000/year. The saddest part is that there has been little research on HGH and aging –- one study shows that lower HGH levels correlate to increased longevity compared to people with high HGH levels.
While HGH is not the fountain of youth that people claim, there are some benefits to HGH supplementation. Of course, anyone whose body lacks the ability to make HGH would benefit from this medical treatment. HGH also increase muscle mass (but not strength). Some people claim to have more energy and feel better on HGH supplementation, but no study has been done to rule out the placebo effect (which is likely to be strong if a person is paying $15,000 for treatments).
Hence HGH does have an anti-aging effect, atleast some people claim so. However, since there hasn’t been enough research about the topic, it is quite difficult to jump to a conclusion.
