Hormone Replacement

Human Growth Hormone - HGH

Is one of several endocrine hormones, like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone that decline in production with age. While many of these hormones can be replaced to deter some of the effects of ageing, growth hormone goes far beyond the effect of any one of these hormones to not only retard biological ageing, but also to significantly reverse many effects of ageing. Researchers have proven growth hormone therapy can reverse the biological effects of ageing.

The use of growth hormone has been increasing in popularity, due of course to the numerous benefits associated with use. To begin with, GH stimulates growth in most body tissues, primarily due to increases in cell number rather than size. This includes skeletal muscle tissue, and with the exception of the eyes and the brain, all other body organs. The transport of amino acids is also increased, as is the rate of protein synthesis.

Growth hormone itself also stimulated triglyceride hydrolysis in adipose tissue, usually producing notable fat loss during treatment, GH also increases glucose output in the liver, and induces insulin resistance by blocking the activity of this hormone in target cells. A shift is seen where fats become a more primary source of fuel, further enhancing body fat loss. Its growth promoting effect also seems to strengthen connective tissues, cartilage and tendons. This effect should reduce the susceptibility to injury and increase strength.

Much of the muscular gain is due to an increase in the number of cells rather than size. The transport of amino acid is increased, as is rate of protein synthesis. HGH also increases glucose in the liver and induces insulin resistance by blocking the activity of this hormone in target cells. This results in a more muscular, leaner physique

Some of the possible beneficial effects of Human Growth Hormone:

(There is still much controversy surrounding this type of treatment. This is something you can discuss with the doctor in the clinic. There is much published both for and against. Follow these links for more information and literature) - -

  • Increase in energy and muscular strength
  • Increase in the size and functions of all internal organs, reversing age related shrinking and dysfunction
  • Improving memory and mentation
  • Reduction in body fat by 16% on average within 6 months
  • Increase in muscle mass by 9% on average within 6 months
  • Stronger, harder bones
  • Smoother, softer, more moist and resilient skin
  • Thicker, more lustrous, healthier hair sometimes with return of youthful colour
  • Lowering of high blood pressure
  • Increase in sexual interest and performance in both men and women
  • Reduction or elimination of osteoarthritic pain and immobility
  • Elevated mood and improved sense of well-being
  • Improved memory and mental clarity
  • Decreased LDL/bad cholesterol and increased HDL/good cholesterol for improved cardiovascular function
  • A reduction in insulin resistance in non-diabetic individuals

To get HGH prescribed requires a full medical history which is assessed and considered by a doctor along with an examination. The doctor will thereafter organise blood tests and discuss both the merits and possible pitfalls of this treatment.
