Growth hormone encourages physical development in children and assists in the survival of tissues and organs during life. The pituitary gland, which is about the size of a pea and is situated at the base of the brain, produces it. The pituitary gland, on the other hand, steadily decreases the amount of growth hormone it releases beginning in middle age. This natural aging mechanism has sparked interest in using synthetic human growth hormone (HGH) to prevent some of the symptoms of aging, such as loss of muscle and bone mass.
If you’re cynical, that’s a positive thing. HGH hasn’t been shown to help otherwise stable adults recover their youth and vitality. HGH treatments and HGH Supplements, on the other hand, can increase the risk of developing other medical conditions. HGH can not be used to treat ageing or age-related disorders, according to experts. Adults that have a growth hormone deficiency, as opposed to the normal decrease of growth hormone that occurs with age, can be given synthetic HGH by their physicians. Growth hormone deficiency is most often caused by a benign tumor on the pituitary gland (pituitary adenoma) or the surgical or radiotherapy treatment of an adenoma.
Adults with AIDS or HIV-related growth hormone deficiency who have an abnormal distribution of body fat may benefit from HGH treatment. Human growth hormone research on healthy adults are scarce and inconsistent. Human growth hormone tends to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat in healthy older adults, but the increased muscle mass does not translate into increased strength. It’s unclear if human growth hormone has any other advantages for healthy adults. There is little or no knowledge about the long-term effects of HGH treatment in healthy older adults since clinical trials of HGH treatment in healthy older adults have been limited and short in length.
In the United States, HGH therapy is only approved for the treatment of growth hormone deficiency and related problems associated with HIV infection. HGH can only be used if it is given as an injection. Human growth hormone isn’t used in pill form. Some dietary supplements in pill form claim to increase HGH levels, but research shows no benefit. The Food and Drug Administration classifies HGH as a controlled substance. It is illegal to use HGH for a condition that has not been licensed, such as muscle building or as an anti-aging treatment in older adults.
The majority of HGH uses are not FDA-approved. Some people take the hormone in combination with other performance-enhancing drugs including anabolic steroids to gain muscle and increase athletic performance. The impact of HGH on athletic results, however, is uncertain. Some so-called anti-aging experts have speculated and suggested that HGH products could reverse age-related bodily degradation because the body’s HGH levels naturally decrease with age. These arguments, too, are unsubstantiated. The use of HGH for anti-aging purposes is not approved by the FDA.
