Utah Human Growth Hormone Rejuvenation Treatments
Most people are woefully unaware of the potential benefits of HGH Restoration. All they know about Human Growth Hormone is that it helps kids grow and that athletes use it to try to get an edge on the competition. HGH is actually an incredibly vital hormone that keeps us feeling young and healthy.
HGH concentrations peak during puberty, and drop to optimal adult levels by the late teens. Around the age of 30, HGH Levels start to decline. This decline is very slow, and it may take years or even decades to become noticeable, but it does eventually have a major impact on health and wellness. It reduces your ability to heal from injury, makes you more susceptible to illness, causes your body to build bodyfat and lose muscle, among other symptoms.
If you feel that you may be suffering from Adult-Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency, the Conscious Evolution Institute offers two primary forms of treatment: Sermorelin Acetate Injections and HGH Injection Therapy. Sermorelin Acetate has the unique ability to facilitate your pituitary to create more natural Human Growth Hormone, and HGH Shots naturally supplement your body's waning supply. Both forms of treatment can help boost your HGH Levels to youthful and optimal concentrations.
Utah Testosterone Replacement Therapy
If you are a man, and you feel that you are losing your virility and sexual potency as you grow older, there is a very strong chance that you are a perfect candidate for the variety of Testosterone Restoration Options that we provide to citizens of Utah. If you think you may be suffering from Testosterone Deficiency, it is important that you get treatment quickly, because Low-T isn't just a sexual disorder, it also diminishes your health and vastly increases your mortality risk over time.
Men with untreated Testosterone Deficiency are more likely to experience Obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Stroke, Atherosclerosis, and Osteoporosis, just to name a few risks. Our HRT Clinic offers a number of treatment options, including Testosterone Enanthate, Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Patches and Testosterone Topical Sprays.
Utah HCG for Weight Loss
Hormone Replacement Therapy can even be used as a medical treatment, in addition to simply being used as a tool for hormone restoration. One option that our HRT Medical Clinic provides is HCG Injections for Weight Loss. This proven Bio-Identical Hormone Treatment, when combined with a strict diet known as Caloric Restriction, has been scientifically established to encourage significant weight loss without leading to fatigue or severe hunger.
HCG works because it has the special ability to counteract hunger pangs, making dieting an easier and more pleasant experience. It also encourages the body to burn bodyfat rather than structural fat and muscle. Just give us a call to get started!

Salt Lake City
Salt Lake City is the capital city of the state of Utah, and it is also the largest metropolitan area in the state. Salt Lake City is most well-known for being the religious center of the LDS Church, and nearly half of the city belongs to the Mormon Church. The city was originally founded as a Mormon settlement by Brigham Young in 1847.

West Valley City
West Valley City is the second most populous city in Utah, and is the largest of Salt Lake City's suburbs. The city was first incorporated in 1980, from the unincorporated communities of Redwood, Chesterfield, Granger, and Hunter. The largest employers in West Valley City are Verizon Wireless, UPS, and Discover Financial. Unlike Salt Lake City, West Valley City remains an overwhelmingly Mormon community.
Provo is located south of Salt Lake City, and is located along Utah Lake. It is the third most populous city in the state, and was another community founded by the Mormons in the 19th century.
