Human Growth Hormone: Fountain of Youth or the Same Old Hype?

by Dr. John H. Maher and Dr. Bruce Howe

In this day and age, it seems that more and more women and young teens are starving themselves to be in the current "skinny mode". Why is this happening?

In this overly commercially orientated world, with skinny models all over the world, and people trying to emulate that "look". I am quite sure it started with Twiggy, in the 1960's. I think Twiggy was smart. She looked at her skinny little frame and realized that she was not like most girls, so instead of hiding herself she flaunted it.

(A Brief Guide to Hgh Enhancement Supplements, the Current Rage in Anti-Aging, Longevity, Building Lean Body Mass, and Rejuvenating Sexual Potency.)

What if you had a natural and safe product with clinically proven results in the battle against aging? What if you could reverse aging? Looking, feeling, and performing 10, even 20 years younger?

What if you could burn fat without dieting or exercising; increase your muscle mass without exercise; improve your sexual drive and performance; enhance your athletic performance and endurance; have younger, tighter, thicker skin; eliminate cellulite; dramatically support truly refreshing deep sleep; build stronger bones; alleviate menopause and male "andropause"; improve your cholesterol and triglyceride profiles; strengthen your heart while lowering blood pressure; even improve your hair growth and texture; improve mood, memory and concentration; strengthen your immune system; and likely add years to your life?

Well... with human growth hormone (Hgh) enhancements you can. Over 28,000 medical studies say you can!

Indeed, a 10 year study just completed in June 1998 for the National Institute of Aging state the results with human growth hormone, also known as Hgh, "are too good to be true!"

What is Hgh?

Nestled in the center of our heads there sits a rather tiny but very powerful gland called the pituitary gland. Hgh is one of 7 hormones secreted by the pituitary. Growth hormone, like thyroid hormone, has an effect on almost all our tissues and organs. As the name implies, it enhances the growth of various organs and tissues, especially muscle and bone. Basically, human growth hormone increases protein synthesis. Proteins are the major building block out of which our body is made. Normal secretion of Hgh occurs in a daily cycle, like a tide. It varies with exercise, sleep, stress and nutrition.

Why Does Hgh Enhancement Help?

As we hit middle age, there is a natural decline in hormone production, not only of Hgh, but estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, androstenedione, and testosterone. With advancing age, an increase in the incidence of osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, mood and memory disorders, loss of libido, , etc. occurs. Also, central obesity increases and muscles shrink. Scientific studies are demonstrating a causal relationship between the decline in hormone levels and an increased incidence of the aforementioned conditions. The exciting development is that by replacing these hormones, these developments can actually be reversed. Hormone replacement for estrogen, thyroid and now progesterone are commonplace. Is Hgh next?

What's the Downside?

Hgh was only used for children with certain growth disorders until the mid 1980's. It was extremely expensive, as the only source was human cadavers!

Then recombinant DNA technology made it possible to engineer bacteria to produce Hgh. Still it cost about $200 to $300 per week to buy such recombinant Hgh! Plus, you need frequent blood tests, costing $100 plus each time to monitor the proper dosage. And you have to give yourself shots twice a day, though these are more inconvenient than painful.

There is some debate as to whether Hgh shots might stimulate cancer. Proponents counter that Hgh actually builds the immune system, therefore likely helping to prevent cancer. The informed consensus opinion at this time seems to be that those with cancer should not take Hgh as it might stimulate cancer growth too!

Another concern is that Hgh shots, as with any hormone replacement therapy regularly taken, tend to inhibit our own natural production. So, if you stop, you could really "crash", having become dependent on an outside source of Hgh.

In Part II, we will continue our discussion on human growth hormone.

We will present information on natural Hgh secretagogues, a safer and much more affordable way to benefit from Hgh enhancements. And we will discuss ways to optimize your Hgh levels with nutrition, exercise, rest and stress reduction.
