Human Growth Hormone Treatments

By Lisa Smithers

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – the hormone that promotes growth during childhood and adolescence, among many other vital functions affecting multiple systems in the body – is plentifully produced by the pituitary gland in our youth; however, as we grow older, the natural secretion of HGH diminishes. As a result, replacement of HGH in our adult bodies becomes very important for several reasons, including weight control.

HGH acts on the liver and other tissues stimulating production of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I). This substance is responsible for the growth-promoting effects of HGH. Because level IGF-I circulating in our blood typically decrease with age, obesity often results.

Thy advantage of boosting HGH in our bodies has many positive effects on our physical and emotional wellbeing, including the potential reduction of body fat. But that’s only one of numerous benefits. Others include an increase in lean muscle mass, an increased sex drive, improved quality of sleep, improved vision, improved cognitive function, restoration of hair and nail growth, a strengthened immune system, and increased energy levels, just to name some of them.

How do we replace the HGH in our bodies that was once important for growth in our youth, but is now decreased in production, yet still important for other reasons in adulthood? There are three ways: HGH injection, introduction of HGH releasers and homeopathic HGH.

The traditional method of Human Growth Hormone therapy is through injection. Before any type of hormone treatment, however, hormone testing is first performed. The testing is followed by an official diagnosis, which, in turn, is followed by closely monitored injection therapy.

The third option are homeopathic HGH formulas. Homeopathic HGH formulas provide a non-invasive, safe therapy that is effective in comparison to the first two options. It is used in order to promote weight loss, to increase general health, to aid successful dieters in maintaining new weight loss, to increase lean muscle mass and that’s just a few of the potential benefits.

Just how effective is HGH treatment? The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of a very interesting 1990 study on the topic. The study involved 12 men, ages 61 to 81, men who were healthy but had IGF-I levels below those found in normal men who were much younger. These 12 older men were given growth hormone injections three times a week for six months. At the end of the test, the 12 men who received HGH were compared to a group of 9 men who had not received HGH treatments. The results of the study showed a marked decrease in adipose tissue (fat) and an increase in lean muscle mass as well as lumbar spine density in the men who were given HGH injections.

Although early tests of Human Growth Hormone treatments by injection showed positive results in the decrease of fatty tissue, an increase in lean muscle mass and other benefits, the drawback was the cost of the injections. The high price of the injection method of HGH treatment made it unavailable to the public in general. Then, with the introduction of homeopathic HGH treatments, the price issue was solved. Almost anyone could afford this homeopathic method of HGH treatment. Today, the benefits of HGH treatment are readily available to everyone through the use of the new, affordable, and accessible homeopathic Human Growth Hormone treatment.

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.
