Am I a Good Candidate for HGH Therapy?

You’ve likely heard about the benefits that many people are having with the human growth hormone. The human growth hormone is something that’s produced by your pituitary gland. It is vital to keeping the tissue in your body healthy. On hearing these benefits and on hearing some of the problems that the human growth hormone treatments, or HGH therapy, you may be asking yourself if human growth hormones are right for you or if you are a good candidate for them.

When most people think about the HGH, they think about it in connection with building muscle mass and density. And the truth is that this hormone is a key factor in the regeneration and building of muscle. But this hormone does a lot more than just that. It’s also key in boosting one’s libido. HGH can slow down the speed with which degenerative diseases affect a person. Having a stable level of HGH in your body can give you an overall improved sense of well-being.

Every human produces HGH at some level. Once you hit your teenage years, your body is producing this hormone at high levels. Once you hit your mid 20’s, your body starts to produce less and less of the hormone, and the decline is cumulative over the years. What’s unique about HGH is how short it lives within your body. When your pituitary gland creates it, it only produces results for a few minutes and then your liver takes that hormone and turns it into the growth factors that you need for muscle growth and overall health.

So how do you know if HGH therapy is right for you? This can be beneficial if you have a deficiency in the hormone. The only way to determine if you have a deficiency of this type is by having a blood test. If the blood test determines that you do have a low functioning pituitary gland or that there is a pituitary tumor that’s affecting the production of HGH, then supplements may be provided.

If your body is producing abnormally low amounts of the HGH hormone, you may notice increased body fat, increased weight, and difficulty exercising. You may notice that your lean body mass is declining and your muscles are not as strong as they used to be.

HGH therapy is good for men and women who are showing signs of deficiency. Some mistakenly confuse HGH deficiency with the normal signs of aging. They are very different. Just because you get older does not mean that you need to lose muscle. Just because you get older does not mean that you need to lose libido. Just because you get older does not mean that you need to have a drastic drop in energy. If you feel that the changes in your body are due to problems with hormone production, you may be a good candidate for HGH therapy.
