Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
Growth hormone, has long been famous in bodybuilding, and in other power sports, its miraculous effects on muscles, its rejuvenating effect on the body, but is it all so, is it really a magic pill? Elixir of youth for a man?
A man at all times was looking for an answer, a miracle cure that could prolong life, slow the aging process, live forever. Scientists have noticed that if the level of human growth hormone is kept at a high, juvenile level, then the aging process can be slowed down. The discovery of this growth hormone is the most important achievement in a person’s ability to turn back time.
In America, in the medical journal New England, July 5, 1990, published a study in the field of medicine, which forever changed the world of drugs intended for rejuvenation. It published the results of a 6-month trial conducted by Dr. Daniel Rudman, MD, with a synthetic growth hormone, over 12 elderly men, aged 61 to 81 years.
Growth Hormone and Bodybuilding
Sports supplements that stimulate the production of human growth hormone (HGH) are successfully used in fitness and bodybuilding industries, primarily to address such issues:
- Increased muscle mass, fat reduction
- Improvement of skin structure and appearance
- Increased bone mass (bone growth), helps cope with osteoporosis
- Increases intelligence, keeps a clear mind, memory, even in old age
- Increases sexual desire
- Improves the physical, mental state of a person
- Improves sleep
- Reduces overall fatigue, helps to get out (not to fall into) depression
Growth hormone is a peptide hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland in the brain. This pituitary gland (pituitary gland) controls the growth and multiplication of cells in the human body and other vertebrate animals. Recently, growth hormone has become available through injections, pills and sprays for patients who want to increase muscle mass and reduce body fat. Growth hormone was originally developed, for children of small height, who need to grow. Before use, make sure that you know all the effects and potential risks associated with taking HGH.
Among all pharmacological preparations of the sports industry, growth hormone (somatotropin) deserves special attention. Growth hormone is produced in limited quantities under appropriate conditions by the pituitary gland and represents a chain consisting of 191 amino acids. I note that somatotropin is responsible for the overall growth of the human body to a certain age (about 20 years), later its production is reduced to almost zero, which results in the cessation of human growth when reaching a specific age threshold.
It is important to know that the growth hormone released in bodybuilding has not so much value as it can be achieved by its use in combination with other anabolic substances. Correctly formulated course with somatotropin allows you to achieve impressive results in power, relief and volume indicators.
Growth hormone in bodybuilding has gained popularity due to the property not only to increase the volume of muscle cells, but also to increase their total number. In addition, other, but no less important, useful properties of the use of somatotropin are the fat burning and strengthening of the ligaments and tendons of the athlete. Thanks to the above-mentioned properties, there is an increase in power indicators and an increase in energy, which contributes to the effectiveness of training.
Together with what it is best to apply?
“Give-away” from recombinant somatotropin can be increased if, along with it, take – in small doses – thyroid hormones. It used to be that together with the growth hormone it is necessary to take triiodothyronine, but recent studies show that thyroxine will be the best choice.
It is believed that growth hormone will not be able to show its anabolic properties without insulin, but, firstly, we have already mentioned the anabolic properties of recombinant somatotropin – it’s not necessary to “get hung up” on them, and secondly, one should realize that in the presence of insulin will not occur the process of lipolysis, and many in fact apply growth hormone just for fat burning purposes.
Are there any side effects of growth hormone, and if so, which ones?
There are side effects of any drug, and growth hormone is no exception. In the final analysis, everything depends on the dosages and the duration of the application. So, excessive infatuation with synthetic growth hormone can lead to a significant growth of cartilaginous tissue, which can result in a long nose, sharply protruding cheekbones, an increased size of the foot. It is especially sad that all these troubles most often affect the fair sex.
Increase in size and internal organs: liver, kidneys, spleen. Again – with prolonged use of growth hormone in high dosages. Another trouble is tunnel syndrome, which means numb fingers (usually the middle finger). Tunnel syndrome can occur with very modest dosages of growth hormone.
