Human Growth Hormone?
Conscious Evolution Institute
HGH is one of the many vital hormones produced by
the endocrine system to keep our minds and bodies running at full
capacity. Like many other vital hormones, such as testosterone,
progesterone, estrogen, and DHEA, endogenous Human Growth Hormone
production begins to decline as we get older. HGH deficiency is one
of the primary culprits which speed up the aging process, and for
this reason, Human Growth Hormone shots are one of the most effective
means by which to slow, and in many cases even reverse, the slow
degradation associated with the aging process.
Clinical Anti-Aging physicians and scientists have
provided evidence that HGH Hormone Therapy has the ability to reverse
the physiological symptoms of aging to such an extent to where in the
best cases, Human Growth Hormone is capable of reducing the body's
physical age by as many as twenty years just with a single year of
How is Human Growth Hormone
produced by the body?
HGH is produced by our pituitary gland by means of
physiological structures known as somatotrophs. The hormone is then
released into the body in short, quick bursts which are then
distributed throughout the body via the blood stream. The
hypothalamus is the control-center which tells the pituitary when to
release these bursts of HGH.
One of the primary ways that Human Growth Hormone
functions in the body is that it is converted into a hormone known as
Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 in the liver. IGF-1 is also referred to
by its alternate name Somatomedin-C in many cases. IGF-1 is a close
relative to insulin, and its primary purpose is to break down fatty
tissue and convert it into energy which is then used by the muscles
and various organs around the body to speed up metabolic and
IGF-1 is also the primary means by which HGH
Deficiency is diagnosed. Human Growth Hormone is released in short
bursts which are difficult to monitor effectively. After Human Growth
Hormone is quickly converted into IGF-1, the levels of this hormone
remain relatively constant in the blood stream and are directly
correlated with Human Growth Hormone production.
HGH Peak Production
Human Growth Hormone is secreted at its highest
rate while we are in our adolescence during the growth spurt of
puberty. During the teen and preteen years, this is the primary
function of Human Growth Hormone. It increases cell reproduction and
heavily targets bone tissue, causing the bones to grow and the body
to therefore reach its final adult height. HGH levels drop from these
peak levels after the epiphyseal plates of the long bones harden,
preventing further growth.
Although it is unhealthy to restore this peak
level of Human Growth Hormone, it is important for physical and
mental health to maintain the HGH levels present in the body during
our late teens and twenties, because these levels are the most
effective for preserving the body and preventing premature aging.
Growth Hormone in Other Animals
In all species of animal, Growth Hormone levels
have been shown to decline with age. This is an undeniable
evolutionary fact that, at least to this point, has never been
confronted with any source of contention in the scientific community.
Although this seems like an unfortunate, yet unavoidable constant, it
is possible to subvert this process of HGH decline through the use of
Human Growth Hormone therapy in order to preserve healthy HGH levels
associated with youth and vitality.
The rate at which GH production declines in
different animals varies, but in human beings, Human Growth Hormone
levels drop by about 1 to 2 percent each year after the age of
thirty. The average rate of decline per decade is around 14 percent.
Although the year to year change in HGH production might not seem
like much, over time, it begins to accumulate and the body begins its
precipitous decline into old age.
To put the rate of hormone decline in a different
context, at our adult peak around the age of twenty, the human body
produces around five hundred micrograms of HGH per day. By the time
we reach age forty, this level drops down to around two hundred. When
we get to the ripe age of eighty, it declines to just a miniscule
twenty-five micrograms! From twenty to forty this represents a sixty
percent decline. From twenty to eighty, the effect is
breath-takingwe produce just over six percent of the HGH we
circulated in our prime. No wonder we look and feel so old! As Human
Growth Hormone declines, so does its derivative IGF-1. With lower
levels of IGF-1 in the blood stream, rates of metabolism drop, and
one of our body's primary means of renewal is disrupted.
Cause of HGH Deficiency
At this point, scientists have not pinpointed
exactly why this process of HGH Deficiency develops over time,
although they understand the basic effects of that decline. By the
time men reach their late thirties and early forties, the decline in
Human Growth Hormone becomes symptomatic, and the effects of
deficiency become more and more apparent. The skin droops, and muscle
tone starts to decline.
It becomes harder to maintain a healthy weight,
and fatigue makes the days become more of a struggle. Medical studies
have shown that even as the somatotroph cells which produce Human
Growth Hormone age, they still have the capability to produce
adequate levels of HGH if properly stimulated. In a landmark study,
scientists manually administered GH-RH (Growth Hormone-Releasing
Hormone) to the pituitary glands of aging laboratory rats. The
somatotrophs responded by pumping out youthful levels of Human Growth
This research, and other studies which have
corroborated the findings, have led scientists and physicians to
theorize that the mechanism for HGH deficiency is tied to the factors
which lead to the release of the hormone, and not the health and age
of the pituitary gland, itself.
Theories about HGH Deficiency
There are three competing theories today about
what factors may cause this genetic decline in Human Growth Hormone
levels. It is likely that all three theories play some role in HGH
Deficiency, but it is unclear which theory is more dominant than its
Theory One: HGH and Somatostatin Production
The first theory is that one of the issues which
hinder Human Growth Hormone production is an inhibitory hormone known
as somatostatin. This hormone functions as a negative feedback
mechanism which blocks GH-RH Receptors on the pituitary gland and
slows the production of Human Growth Hormone. As we age, it is
believed that these HGH-Blockers eventually begin to prevent humans
from producing adequate levels of Growth Hormone. In animal research
studies, scientists blocked the production of somatostatins in the
brains of aging rats and found that their Human Growth Hormone
production returned to youthful levels.
Theory Two: HGH and the Hypothalamus
The second theory revolves around the
hypothalamus, which signals the pituitary to release Human Growth
Hormone. Research has shown that as we age, the hypothalamus becomes
less sensitive to triggers which would normally cause it lead to the
secretion of GH-RH. This decline in GH-RH production then creates a
cascade of deficiency, leading to depressed levels of HGH production
as well as IGF-1 conversion in the liver.
Theory Three: IGF-1 and Insulin
Another final theory quickly gaining support
blames HGH and IGF-1 receptors throughout the body. There is evidence
that leads researchers to believe that as we age, various receptors
for these two important hormones become desensitized to the
stimulation of Human Growth Hormone and its derivatives. This theory
equates HGH Deficiency with insulin resistance. The body slowly loses
its ability to respond to hormonal triggers and the body ages
drastically as a result. If this is true, then this form of Human
Growth Hormone Deficiency is very similar to diabetes.
When is HGH Produced?
Human Growth Hormone is produced mainly during two
different periods. HGH is released in its highest amounts during the
hours of deep sleep. This is why proper sleeping habits are vital to
the efficient release of Human Growth Hormone, and why many HGH shots
are delivered at night before bed, in order to simulate the natural
release by the body. HGH is also produced during periods of intense
physical activity such as cardiovascular exercise and weightlifting.
Human Growth Hormone release during exercise helps the body perform
better and helps the body recover more effectively after exercise is
Symptoms of Human Growth Hormone
Various clinical and scientific studies have
linked HGH Deficiency to a number of different symptoms of aging.
Most of these symptoms have been revealed in younger patients who
suffer from HGH Deficiency at an early age as well. These symptoms
Cardiovascular disease Lowered
metabolism leads to higher levels of fat and unhealthy triglycerides
and LDL cholesterol in the blood stream, leading to issues such as
blot clots, heart blockages, and hypertension. Human Growth Hormone
breaks down unhealthy fatty tissue and restores a healthy balance of
HDL and LDL cholesterol in addition to reducing Triglyceride levels.
Fatigue HGH Deficiency reduces the
body's ability to respond to vigorous exercise effectively.
Without the energy provided by IGF-1, the body doesnt have the
energy it needs to maximize the benefits of exercise. In addition to
this, low levels of Human Growth Hormone can make it hard to get out
of bed in the morning or even make it through a work day without
succumbing to various symptoms of generalized exhaustion. HGH shots
help patients maintain high levels of energy during exercise which
helps maximize the benefits of both aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
Trouble sleeping The release of
Human Growth Hormone at night plays a major role in maintaining a
healthy circadian rhythm If you are deficient in HGH, there is an
increased chance that you will have issues sleeping, or be able to
sleep for a full eight hours. This issue causes a vicious feedback
loop because poor sleeping habits further exacerbate HGH Deficiency.
Hormone Replacement Therapy helps restore healthy rhythms and
patterns of sleep, helping you wake up more well-rested and
Changes in hair color and hair thickness
Human Growth Hormone Deficiency produces generalized effects of
reduced rejuvenation throughout the body. Without proper levels of
HGH, the hair begins to degrade. Color slowly begins to fade until
the hair turns grey or white. Once lush and healthy hair has a
tendency to become thin and wispy and prone to falling out. Human
Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to restore
healthy hair to a significant percentage of patients.
The development of fine lines, wrinkles,
and sagging skin Human Growth Hormone Deficiency is most
noticeable in its early stages in the effect that it has on the
structure and health of the skin. Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
leads to weakened muscles under the skin which contribute to sagging
skin on the face and neck. It also reduces fluid retention in the
skin cells which leads to the formation of deep lines and wrinkles,
because the individual skin cells are no longer as robust and
healthy as they once were.
This combines with
weakened muscle structure underneath the skin and makes wrinkles more
noticeable and distracting. Human Growth Hormone shots restore the
intracellular fluid which makes the skin look flush and healthy. It
also tightens the skin, reducing that unwanted sagging which droops
the face and makes a person look far older than he or she should.
Decreased muscle mass and strength
As was mentioned earlier, Human Growth Hormone Deficiency reduces
the ability of the body to withstand rigorous exercise. In addition
to this, deficiency also diminishes the gains made when exercising
as well. In addition to providing the energy and fuel needed to
perform strenuous exercise, HGH also provides the muscles with the
tools they need to repair themselves and become stronger as a result
This is one of the
primary reasons why bodybuilders and athletes utilize Human Growth
Hormonebecause it vastly increases the gains made in terms of both
strength and physical aesthetic as a result of exercise. Although
Human Growth Hormone is illegal in the United States for performance
enhancement, it is perfectly legal to experience these physical gains
as a benefit of treating legitimate Human Growth Hormone Deficiency.
Increased adipose fat deposits and obesity
Human Growth Hormone deficiency plays a major role in the
development of weight gain and obesity in patients over the age of
thirty. HGH is a central player in basic human metabolism, and as
HGH levels start to decline, this is directly correlated with a
decrease in metabolism. Are you eating the same food you did in your
twenties and still intake the same number of calories, but you find
that you are putting on the pounds all of a sudden? This is likely
the result of Human Growth Hormone Deficiency, and initiating HGH
Hormone Replacement Therapy can help you reverse this trend and lose
HGH shots naturally
reduce body fat percentage by increasing metabolism and breaking down
adipose tissue which is predominantly located around the hips,
stomach, waist, and thighs. This fat is then converted into energy
that the body needs to perform day-to-day activity. The benefits of
this increased metabolism create a positive feedback loop in which
enhanced energy allows one to work out harder and longer and burn
Bone health Human Growth Hormone
plays a major role in the maintenance of bone health and, although
natural, the decline in Human Growth Hormone production weakens the
bones and greatly increases the risk of bone fractures and breaks as
well as osteoporosis. Similar in some ways to how IGF-1 effects
muscle tissue, this hormone provides the bones with the necessary
tools and nutrients needed to maintain a healthy skeletal system. In
addition to this, IGF-1 increases the metabolism of cells within the
bones, causing repair and maintenance to occur more quickly and
efficiently, preventing dangerous bone disorders such as
osteoporosis when used appropriately.
Decreased Libido and Sexual Ability
Much like Testosterone and Estrogen deficiency, HGH Deficiency in
some cases weakens the sex drive. This is due to a number of
factors. Low energy and fatigue make one less interested in sex for
example. Poor body image as a result of weight gain and muscle loss
can also make it difficult to get in the mood. In addition to this,
Human Growth Hormone plays a key role in a man or womans
functional ability to perform as well.
In men, HGH deficiency
can lead to erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. In women,
HGH Deficiency can lead to vaginal dryness or other symptoms of
female sexual dysfunction. HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy has been
shown to be quite effective at restoring sexual function even without
the use of sexual aids such as Cialis or Viagra.
Depression and mood swings HGH
Deficiency has been linked to a number of mood disorders which are
associated with aging. As with decreased libido, some of the reasons
why these mental disruptions occur are because of the influence of
the other symptoms of Human Growth Hormone deficiency on the human
psyche. As the aging process begins to create a physical and mental
decline, it is only natural to have feelings of anxiety and
depression. Fatigue and low energy create a perpetual system where
nothing ever seems to get done correctly and you have no motivation.
Weight gain and muscle atrophy cause you to have poor physical
perception which makes you just not feel attractive anymore.
In addition to this,
depression and mood disorders are exacerbated by Human Growth Hormone
decline itself. The mental and physiological roots of HGH induced
depression and anxiety magnify one another and can put a person in a
rut that can be incredibly difficult to escape without the help of
medication or therapy. If you feel that your depression may be the
result of HGH Deficiency, it may be better for your mental health to
try HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy before turning to
Anti-Depressants and Anti-Anxiety medications, because these
medications can sometimes have side-effects which adversely impact
your mental health in other ways.
Memory and cognitive issues HGH
Deficiency has been linked to a number of different cognitive issues
that occur as the result of the aging process. When using HGH for
general Anti-Aging purposes, a significant percentage of individuals
who used the therapy were able to perform more effectively at
memory-oriented tasks and were confident that their memory had
improved as a result of therapy. In addition to this, focus and
mental sharpness were found to increase as well, allowing many
patients to perform better on the job, as well as help them think
critically in other aspects of their daily life.
So what can HGH Hormone
Replacement Therapy do for me?
