It has been called the “fountain of youth,” and a powerful tool in fighting the affects of aging. It has also garnered controversy as having unsafe side affects when NOT administered as part of a medically supervised hormone replacement therapy (HRT) program.
The name of this wonder drug is called Human Growth Hormone (HGH). It has become one of the most well known agents in defying aging in hundreds of clinics around the United States. Thousands of male patients swear to its effectiveness and power in generating muscle, boosting energy, improving the immune system and stimulating cognitive functions.
It first came to prominence in 1990 when a New England Journal of Medicine study released data that 6 months of HGH therapy decreased the amount of body fat and increased lean body mass and skin thickness. While controversial, some involved in the study concluded that Growth Hormone “were equivalent in magnitude to changes incurred during 10 to 20 years of aging.”
The study confirmed that once men pass the age of 30, the secretion of growth hormone by the pituitary gland tends to decline.
This contributes towards the atrophy of lean body mass and general deterioration in body composition.
Over the next few decades, many studies confirmed a broad range of benefits including the following:
• Improves immune function
• Improve quality of life
• Improve cognitive function
• Improves action of testosterone
• Improves brain function
• Reverses osteoporosis
• Decreases cardiac disease
• Improves heart function
• Improves body composition
The result is that HGH therapy is now a $100 million annual market for GH manufacturers, probably way more. With this surge in interest, comes risk. A number of illegal sales take place over the Internet and many so-called HRT clinics offer short-term HGH fixes rather than sustainable medically supervised programs that put the health of the patient first.
This has resulted in some negative press and a painful vetting procedure by prospective patients as they seek out reputable clinics with onsite medical doctors overseeing the program.
Failure to sign up with an medically supervised clinic can have adverse long-term side effects for patients. These could include an elevated incidence of glucose intolerance and diabetes among males.
Regenx Medical Institute is a physician-guided program that has investigated, researched and implemented a complete range of HRT strategies for aging men and women.
With a team of onsite doctors, each patient undergoes an extensive medical exam that covers the endocrine system, nutrition, skin care, genetics, enzymes & probiotics, and the overall health of your immune system or what we refer to as “Gi”.
Research into HGH therapy indicates substantive medical benefits when carefully regulated by an onsite Doctor and supporting team.
For instance, a 2002 study entitled The effect of long-term untreated growth hormone deficiency (GHD) and 9 years of GH replacement on the quality of life (QoL) of GH-deficient adults concluded that patients with declining HGH experienced significant declines in health over a nine year period. In contrast, those who received HGH experienced improvements in energy and other benefits.
“Too little growth hormone can cause short stature in children, and changes in muscle mass, cholesterol levels, and bone strength in adults,” reports the Health Section of The New York Times.
Further, HGH used in combination with Testosterone may have a number of positive benefits on both muscle growth and energy levels. If you suffer from a lack of focus or simply desire to feel like you once did at the age of 20, a combination of Testosterone, HGH, nutrition and exercise regimens may bring your body back into balance.
