Human Growth Hormone, HGH or Somatropin is a hormone that is naturally produced by our bodies. The pituitary, an organ at the base of the brain, releases this hormone in an explosion, releasing the highest levels during sleep. GH stimulates bone epiphyseal growth plates which are responsible for bone augmentation. GH also triggers the release of insulin-like protein factor-like I (IGF-I), which in response to GH stimulates the growth of bones, muscles, and other tissues and regulates the release of GH from the pituitary gland. The growth hormone also contributes to proper bone density, which is important in childhood and adulthood, when poor bone density can cause problems such as osteoporosis.
Growth hormone is known to promote longitudinal growth in children and adolescents, but also has several important metabolic functions throughout life. The effect of HGH on adult bodies are well documented in research with recombinant growth hormone therapy (rhGH) in patients with growth hormone deficiency.
Benefits of HGH
The growth hormone nourishes childhood growth and helps maintain tissues and organs throughout life. At present, there are more and more lists of the benefits of HGH treatment in children, adolescents, and adults, such as:
- Increase muscle strength
Human growth hormone improves human physical performance by stimulating collagen synthesis in skeletal muscles and tendons, increasing muscle strength and, as a result, increasing sports performance.
- Better fracture healing
Giving human growth hormone has been shown to accelerate bone regeneration and make it a key component of bone healing and stimulates bone metabolism.
- Increased weight loss
Overweight individuals have a limited response to the release of growth hormone stimulation, and after successfully losing weight, the growth hormone response may be partial or complete.
- Helps with erectile dysfunction issues
Recent studies have shown that human growth hormone is responsible for male reproductive function and penile erection can be triggered by growth hormone through stimulating activity in the smooth muscle of the human corpus cavernosum, making it a natural remedy that has the potential for impotence.
- Stronger bones
The pituitary stimulates growth hormone secretion and is very important for the regulation of bone growth, especially during puberty. The growth hormone produces the IGF-1, which is produced in the liver and released in the blood.
- Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease
Adults who lack growth hormone are at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease which results in decreased life expectancy. The results show that lipoprotein metabolism is altered by a growth hormone deficiency, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Dosage of HGH
Normal dosage of HGH is between 3 and 8 IU/ day, split into two or three injections. Professional bodybuilders are reported to use much more, but this may result in nasty side effects, such as GH gut, especially when used in conjunction with Insulin. So 8 IU/day should be considered a maximum dose if you are looking to keep it safe. Somatropin is a special hormone. It is not advised for users who are looking for fast results. Its benefits are seen in 6 months time, so you need to show patience. Cycle length is usually 6 months, during which consumers will notice significant increase in quality, lean muscle mass, and loss of fat storage. Follow all instructions on the prescription label and ask your doctor before you decide starting an HGH cycle. Use the medicine exactly as ordered.
Somatropin is usually subcutaneous (under the skin). Your doctor can help you with tips on how to handle drugs correctly.
Recombinant human growth hormone (GH) is routinely given as a daily subcutaneous injection in patients with GH deficiency (GHD). Daily injections and prolonged GH infusion have the same effect on body weight and body composition. Two routes of administration produce similar daily GH excretion and similar serum GH levels.
