HGH Therapy - Adding Vitality to Your Life:
Steroids have been controversial ever since these were introduced in the 1950s. Numerous news accounts, mostly on sports figures that tested positive for steroid use, continue to bring negative connotation on these substances. While it is true that some forms of steroids are banned, there are many which are legal (albeit restricted), including the Human Growth Hormone (HGH), also known as Somatotropin. Marketed as Real HGH, Somatropin or 191 Amino Acid Sequence HGH, the biologic drug is available in the US, Europe and other countries.
This HGH hormone is produced naturally in the human body by the pituitary gland and, as its name implies, is responsible for making cells grow bigger and divide more rapidly. HGH also facilitates inter-cellular amino acid distribution and conversion to proteins, which results in muscle build-up. Studies also show that somatotropin reduces carbohydrate usage in the cells and increase utilization of fats, resulting in a leaner body composition.
Humans make HGH throughout their lifetime; a steady growth from the early years until puberty when production of the hormone reaches its peak and the body experiences growth spurts. At the age of forty, the amount of HGH produced by the body starts to decline – a phenomenon seen as the main cause of reduced body functions and frailty that comes with old age.
At present, HGH is medically indicated for the following conditions: growth hormone deficiency in adults, children with short stature or kidney failure, and people with HIV and AIDS - to counteract the muscle wasting effect of these conditions. In the US, use of HGH as an anti-aging treatment is prohibited, though in a report last year, CNN found that prescriptions for HGH treatment are on the rise, even if its legal status is ‘fuzzy’.
In adults, use of HGH had been shown to increase metabolism, physical and mental energy, muscle mass, libido and bone density as well as normalize cholesterol levels and reduce body fat. Some of the side effects associated with HGH include swelling in arms and legs, arthritis and carpal tunnel symptoms, muscle pain, diabetes and abnormal growth of bones. Weighing the benefits one gets from HSH against the common side-effects, a growing number of endocrinologists have recognized that in many cases, the advantages far outweigh the possible side-effects, particularly for people whose lifestyle has been greatly curtailed as a result of the hormone deficiency. There are many documented instances wherein patients report generally greater signs of vitality, better health and well-being after taking the hormone.
In the US, body builders and other people with active lifestyles routinely use HGH – procured either by prescriptions or online purchases. Obviously, these people see the lean muscle development and fat-burning effects of the hormone greater than the risks associated with it. Other important factors that weigh heavily in favor of HGH are its ability to heal muscle - even cartilage- injuries quickly, and the fact that it is undetectable (for now) in current drug-testing tests – a boon for athletes who are required to undergo these tests. For years, bodybuilders have known that combining the hormone with testosterone drugs brings better results – well-defined muscles, heightened endurance and strength.
While selling of the injectable HGH is restricted in the country, a lot of online suppliers from abroad can ship the drug to US residents without any complications. Usually, the hormone is taken with other performance-enhancing steroids which are also supplied by the online stores.
