Human growth hormone (HGH) plays a crucial role in cell regeneration and the maintenance of healthy tissue, especially in the brain and other vital organs. Naturally produced by the pituitary gland, the hormone travels through the bloodstream to the liver, where it is converted into growth factors used by the rest of your body to promote tissue, bone and muscle growth. The hormone also helps regulate the metabolism of sugar and fat. Since your body produces less HGH after age 30, you may experience signs of aging like increased abdominal fat, loss of muscle mass and lower energy levels. To slow or even reverse premature aging, you may consider HGH therapy under the supervision of our physician. This prescription-only therapy can provide numerous benefits for both men and women.
Research shows that HGH therapy increases lean body mass above that which is possible through diet and exercise alone. As a result, the treatment can help you improve your strength and endurance. With more lean muscle mass, your body will burn more calories and decrease the amount of stored fat. Numerous studies have confirmed that excess fat in the abdominal region is commonly associated with many serious health issues. Enhanced weight loss can significantly aid in reducing risk factors for numerous potential health problems. Studies also confirm that HGH therapy can increase bone mineral density, which can aid the healing process and lower the risks of osteoporosis.
Other benefits of HGH therapy include higher energy levels, lower blood pressure and decreased cholesterol levels, as well as improved cardiovascular and kidney function. Along with improved athletic performance, HGH therapy can also lead to faster recovery times. The therapy is reported to improve restorative sleep, lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and reduce signs of aging skin like wrinkles. HGH therapy can also lead to higher libido, increased cognitive function and improved psychological well-being.
