HGH: Getting The Basics

By Lisa Smithers

What is HGH…basically? It’s an abbreviation for Human Growth Hormone. The HGH moniker is often referred to as a miracle…sometimes an anti-aging cure, but that’s only one of many conditions and problems that people claim HGH can “cure.”

HGH (human growth hormone) is a polypeptide produced by the anterior pituitary gland. It’s a 191-amino acid with a very complex structure. Because of its complex structure it is responsible for a very wide variety of functions and processes in the human body. Some of these vital functions and processes include: cell regeneration and reproduction, growth, aging, etc.)

Because of the complex nature of the HGH it benefits a wide variety of systems and functions. It regulates many vital processes throughout the body systems. And this is in addition to the most obvious “growth” responsibilities that gives the hormone its name.

HGH levels decline gradually as time passes. Many theorize that many of the commonly recognized signs of aging are a direct result of decreased levels of HGH. Recognized signs of aging that could be caused by decreased levels of HGH include: decreased general cell health, decreased energy, decline in organ function, negative fat handling, etc.

By the age of 60 many have already experienced as much as an 80% decline in the levels of HGH. The decrease percentage is in comparison to the typical 20 year old’s HGH levels.

Symptoms of low levels of HGH in the system include: increased body fat, decreased sense of general well being, increase in general anxiety and social isolation, decrease in general health, etc. Many experts believe that the most obvious signs of aging including wrinkles, decreased sex drive, gray hair, etc. to be a result of decreased HGH levels.

The skeletal system benefits greatly from appropriate levels of HGH in the body. Lipids and cardiovascular health also benefit greatly from appropriate HGH levels. Other systems and functions that benefit from healthy HGH levels include: skin elasticity, immune function, blood pressure, cell regeneration, mental clarity, etc. It can also benefit those who have trouble sleeping.

In addition to the benefits normally associated with proper HGH levels…homeopathic HGH formulas offer extra benefits. Homeopathic remedies (including HGH formulas) are easily accessible. And they come with an extensive list of benefits. While they aren’t the miracle anti-aging cure that many take them for…they do come quite close. They’re better than any combination of multi-vitamins.

Lisa Smithers struggled throughout her college career with HGH imbalances. After finding Growth Hormones Direct she was eventually able to succeed in obtaining her college degree.
