Human growth hormone (HGH) is a hormone, produced by the pituitary gland. It plays a key role in anabolism, growth, cell regeneration, and cell reproduction.
HGH helps to maintain, build, and repair healthy tissue in the brain and other organs. This hormone can help to speed up healing after an injury and repair muscle tissue after exercise. This helps to build muscle mass, boost metabolism, and burn fat.
HGH was also efficient in cosmetology. It slows down the aging process and supports the regeneration of collagen structures in the skin.
HGH is used to treat age-related diseases. However, research supporting these claims is limited.
HGH stimulates metabolic processes in cells to activate metabolism. It stimulates the liver to make an Insulin-like Growth Factor -1, which is a highly active anabolic substance, for muscle tissues especially.
So HGH plays a part in bone and organ growth, as well as muscle protein synthesis.
Uses and benefits:
- increase performance
- improve bone density
- increase muscle mass
- reduce body fat
Many athletes use hGH to enhance their results in sports. It’s sometimes used in combination with anabolic steroids to increase muscle mass and enhance athletic performance.
Some people believe hGH has anti-aging effects since natural levels of HGH decrease with age.
