Human Growth Hormone is a powerful hormone essential for anabolic activity and cellular rejuvenation. Produced by the pituitary gland it is actually the hypothalamus that determines the amount of Human Growth Hormone produced by the pituitary and this can largely vary from one person to the next. While this production is necessary for many of our physical processes, unfortunately as we age it declines and it does so more rapidly as we enter into middle age and beyond. Understandably many confuse Human Growth Hormone with anabolic steroids; this confusion is brought on in-part by lack of education but inaccurate media reporting is also largely responsible. Human Growth Hormone is not a steroidal hormone; although it is a hormone it belongs to a class known as a peptide hormone. A peptide hormone is a protein based hormone whereas anabolic steroids are cholesterol or fat based. Both anabolic steroids and Human Growth Hormone share some very similar traits in-terms of their benefits within the body, however, Human Growth Hormone will prove to be for all intense purposes a bit more powerful of a hormone.
The peptide hormone Human Growth Hormone, commonly known as HGH is produced by the pituitary gland with regulation being determined by the hypothalamus portion of the brain. The hypothalamus is responsible for the release of two factors, Human Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (HGHRH) and Somatostatin (SST) and it is by this release that causes the pituitary to take action determining how much HGH will be produced and released. Generally speaking, the more HGHRH and SST released the more HGH released in the body, however, our general physical state plays a large role in this as well. An individual who undergoes consistent and regular exercise, especially weight training will inevitably produce more Human Growth Hormone than someone who does not; yes, natural HGH production and physical exercise go hand-in-hand.
Human Growth Hormone carries with it a host of attributes and benefits to the body but all of these benefits can largely be broken down into cellular production, repair or rejuvenation and growth. The more HGH we have in our system the greater the rate these functions perform and the greater the performance the more efficient physical being we possess. As we understand the human body, every last inch is comprised of cells, all responsible for differing aspects. For proper function new cells must be created, old cells must be repaired and restructured to meet demand and HGH is largely responsible for this process; that should give you an idea on how powerfully important HGH is. Further, Human Growth Hormone plays a vital role on our metabolic rate; the more HGH we have the greater rate our metabolism functions, the more HGH we possess the greater fat burning efficiency will be.
Men and women, young and old produce Human Growth Hormone; as you witness your local news reporting if you’re largely unfamiliar with HGH this is probably a surprise as in many circles HGH is viewed as a narcotic. This is nothing more than uneducated assumptions based on emotional fear as every human being produces HGH and it’s important to our health and quality of life. As imperative to overall health as it is, the greater our overall health the greater HGH production will be; it’s a circular effect. However, as the benefits of Human Growth Hormone are becoming more understood many have begun a supplemental process. This may be brought on by age, you get older, you produce less HGH so you supplement with more. However, more commonly than any purpose is HGH use for performance enhancing and if you can even slightly understand cell structure and performance you can begin to understand why this type of supplementation is so highly regarded.
There are countless benefits to supplemental HGH use but there is really only one true way to reach this desired end. Yes, we can diet and exercise and increase HGH production but only to a slight degree; diet and exercise will more or less be responsible for keeping natural production stable and not increasing it to a great degree. There are also oral and transdermal HGH medications but most of these have been proven to be largely ineffective as this type of administration is largely not tolerated by the body. The only way we will ever greatly benefits from supplemental Human Growth Hormone is by injection form and normally on a daily basis. While this may seem bothersome and annoying at best the benefits are in-fact so great you will soon forget and disregard any annoying factor. The list of benefits is so long if they were all listed you’d be reading for the next couple of weeks; nevertheless, to give you a general idea we’ve listed some of the most enticing Human Growth Hormone benefits obtained through supplemental use:
Human Growth Hormone is one of the safest things we will ever undergo supplemental use with. Granted, there are possible negative side-effects but by-in-large they are heavily dose dependent, meaning those who use responsibly will normally never concern themselves with even one negative effect. Look at it like this; you need food to live, if you eat too much food in one sitting you’ll throw up; this would be a negative side-effect but it doesn’t mean food is bad. The same can be said of HGH and when we use it responsibly the benefits are in-fact truly great.
Those who abuse Human Growth Hormone will be risking bone growth, particularly in the hands, feet and jaw line areas and most of these individuals will experience swelling of their extremities. This swelling can occur even in responsible users, especially in the early stages until the body adapts but most will not experience it beyond a little tingling in the hands.
