Just What is HGH and Is It Dangerous?

HGH is an acronym for Human Growth Hormone. It is a protein manufactured by the pituitary gland that stimulates growth in childhood and is important for maintaining a healthy body composition, muscle mass, bone mass, fat distribution, and well-being in adults.

Human Growth Hormone stimulates our body to regenerate and renew itself.  As we grow older, our naturally generated supplies of Human Growth Hormone diminish. This means our body’s cells are fed less amino acids and have less of a chance to regenerate themselves.

The pituitary gland is a tiny endocrine gland located in the brain. It is often called the "master gland of the body". The pituitary gland produces and secretes many hormones that travel throughout the body, directing certain processes stimulating other glands to produce different types of hormones.

Human Growth Hormone Levels

At age 21, the normal level of circulating Human Growth Hormone is about 10 milligrams per deciliter of blood. After the age of 30, the circulating rate of Human Growth Hormone in blood decreases by about 14% per decade. The average 60 year old has about 2 milligrams of Human Growth Hormone per deciliter of blood. By age 80, most seniors barely produce enough Human Growth Hormone to build a fingernail, explaining why injuries experienced by seniors take such a long time to heal.

How is Human Growth Hormone Taken?

Human Growth Hormone can be taken in the form of a pill or liquid supplement, a prescription injection or it can be sprayed into the mouth.  You can also get powders that consist of herbs and supplements that can encourage your body to produce its own human growth hormone. The injectible form of human growth hormone is considered to be the most effective when it comes to anti-aging.

Popular injectable brands of Human Growth Hormone are Norditropin, Humatrope, Saizen and Serostim. The price of an injection really varies from country to country but you can expect to pay between $25 and $250 a shot.

Is Human Growth Hormone Dangerous?

Human Growth Hormone is not recommended if you have a disorder of the pituitary gland such as Graves Disease or Cushing’s Disease.

Potential, but uncommon side effects of human growth hormone include fluid retention, pain or swelling in the joints and carpal tunnel syndrome. Human Growth Hormone has been shown to thicken tissues in some people so it may not be appropriate with people who have disorders like psoriasis.

If you are injecting Human Growth Hormone at doses well over 150 IU a day you can end up with a very serious condition called acromegaly  Symptoms of acromegaly include swelling of the hands and feet, jutting of the brow, spaces developing between the teeth, tunnel vision and increased sweating.

Scientific Studies

Studies have shown that synthetic Human Growth Hormone, whether taken orally or injected can slow down and even reverse common signs of again such as a waning sex drive, thinning hair, a pot belly, lack of muscles, failing vision, depression and skin wrinkles.

To be safe, only take Human Growth Hormone with supervision of your doctor. The oral sprays, nose sprays, powders, liquids and Human Growth Hormone boosters on the market are not dangerous if taken under your doctor's supervision and taken as directed.
