HGH And Anti Aging ( NEW ARTICLE ) Human growth hormone HGH or the generic term
somatropin is a natural hormone that all of us have circulating in our blood stream.
The Hormone is produced in the anterior pituitary gland in our brains. Human growth
hormone production regulates and promotes the growth of bones and muscles in our
bodies. It also promotes cell growth and healing in our bodies. At the age of 25
the production of HGH in our bodies slowly and gradually begins to decline. Prior
to the age of twenty five our human growth hormone levels as measured by the IGF
– 1 factor are about 350. By the time we reach middle age( 40 or more) the levels
of human growth hormone HGH in our bodies has declined to substantially lower levels
with an IGF – 1 factor below 170.
Prior to 1985 human growth hormone HGH was manufactured from the pituitary glands
in cadavers. In 1981 Genentech Labs pioneered the DNA technology to reproduce bio
– identical human growth hormone HGH for use in the medical market place. In 1985
the USA FDA approved laboratory produced human growth hormone for use in the medical
It is our opinion at The Anti Aging Institute of The Americas that human growth
hormone HGH replacement has substantial anti – aging benefits when used under a
doctor’s careful supervision. Elevating our patients levels to a IGF – 1 factor
of 350 has substantial benefits. Some of the benefits are increased recovery and
healing time, increased muscle mass on an incremental basis, and reduced body fat.
Our patients are not allowed to elevate their levels above IGF – 1 350 and patients
that knowingly take abusive levels of human growth hormone should be aware of the
negative consequences which can include an enlarged heart and increased cranial
In males we utilize human growth hormone HGH replacement with testosterone replacement
to achieve the best anti – aging results. It is fundamental to our philosophy that
anti – aging is hormone replacement utilizing human growth hormone HGH and testosterone
plus healthy nutrition plus a good exercise program. The patients that adhere to
this discipline experience superior results in looking and feeling younger and have
a superior quality of life than their peers that choose not to embrace an anti –
Human growth hormone replacement HGH can not be provided to patients that have cancer,
diabetes related diseases or are recovering from recent traumatic surgery such as
open heart surgery. Patients should make sure that their human growth hormone HGh
is produced by FDA approved globally respected pharmaceutical companies. Human growth
hormone HGH produced in China should not be taken, regardless of how attractive
the price is. In the United States human growth hormone HGH is approved for the
treatment of AIDS and Dwarfism.
In Costa Rica human growth hormone HGH is legal for anti – aging quality of life
purposes under a doctor’s care and supervision.
