HGH in bodybuilding

March 8th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Syntetic Human Growth Hormone is sucessfully used in bodybuilding nowadays due to its favorable properties and probably most important one – it is not traceable. Let’s find out how it works…

Human Growth Hormone levels decline rapidly after age 30. These HGH levels, along with the related IGF-1 amounts, must be elevated in order to maximize muscular size and growth. Human Growth Hormone levels are associated with decreased fat, increased muscle mass, high energy, and increased sex drive. It is HGH that has been found in studies to facilitate the metabolism of fats in the body. HGH is also known for it’s powerful muscle-building effects. Increasing HGH is definitely a good thing, especially for bodybuilders. HGH tends to decrease naturally with age, so the older you get, the harder it is to lose fat. Metabolically speaking, GH is responsible for the regulation of insulin (glucose metabolism), protein synthesis, transportation of amino acids across cell membranes, growth factor-1, a metabolic liver hormone) and IGF-2, osteablast production (bone mass) and fat metabolism. GH also has a profound effect on the immune system.

Between the ages of 20 and 25, GH production begins a steady decline, and research associates this correspondence with the phenomena we call aging. Somatopause (Soma = GH) is the term used to describe this condition. The human brain shrinks in size by as much as 30% by the time we die, as do other vital organs. Much of this is due to the dramatic drop in the production of somatomedins (growth factors) with age, which in turn are regulated by GH. Within the psychological domain, when GH levels drop, mood levels become less stable and the feelings of youthful resilience ( the ability to “bounce back”) diminishes.

GH is one of the most extensively researched hormones in the body. Anti-aging specialists focus on its ability to regenerate kidney, lung, heart, and liver tissue.

The majority of GH research has focused on its clinical application at injectable dosage levels (from 1 to 2 I.U.s). However, research is now surfacing regarding the effects of micro-dilution supplementation on quality of life.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) has been extensively studied both clinically and theoreticaly for many decades. GH has been referred to as the “Fountain of Youth”. It has astounded the medical community with its numerous positive physiological effects on degenerative conditions related to both aging and disease. The reported higher energy levels, enhanced libido and sexual performance; regrowth of internal organs that shrink with age; and greater cardiac output. In addition, superior immune function, better kidney function, lowering of blood pressure, and improved cholesterol profile (higher HDL and lower LDL) have been documented. Younger thicker skin with tightening and lessening of wrinkles, hair growth, sharper vision, mood elevation/releif from depression, increased memery retention, improved sleep, decreased recovery time from exercise, muscle strain/injury, and regeneration of tissues in degenerative diseases have also been noted.
