Human Growth Hormone, (also known as HGH) is a powerful hormone that is released by the pituitary gland. It’s release is affected by many different factors in the body. Human growth hormone has profound effects over cellular metabolism and most of its effects we look for are mediated by Insulin Like Growth Factory (IGF1). As we age we begin to decline in our GH release and it’s theorized that this part of why we age. When we introduce HGH back into the body we notice a multitude of improvements. The ones patients seek out the most are: decreased body fat, improved muscle tone, increased skin elasticity, improved deep sleep and overall anti-aging effect.
The old way of this therapy was to give actual HGH to the patient. This was not only too expensive but found to have some potential side effects that were not so favorable. Revolutionary discoveries have been made in healthcare in the world of PEPTIDES. When the brain wants to release growth hormone, it releases small peptides that signal the pituitary gland itself to dump our stock of growth hormone that it has. Next, it makes more and waits for the next signal. The decrease in growth hormone release we experience as we age is not from the gland itself, in most cases, but rather a weakened signal from the brain. By use of specific peptides we are able to prove the best type of human growth hormone release; your body’s own GH itself! The side effects associated with standard HGH therapy are not present with this peptide therapy.
With a lowered production of HGH comes less collagen which is responsible for skin elasticity
Decreased HGH can lead to impaired cognitive function
Hormones regulate everything in our bodies including sleep cycles. Sleep is crucial to our body's recovery and well-being
With lower HGH levels, you are more susceptible inflammation and bone disease
Hormone imbalance, especially HGH imbalance can lead to fluctuations in weight and extreme weight gain.
Fights bad cholesterol
With our personalized peptide programs men and women are reporting amazing improves in the symptoms above. It generally recommended that most should get their other hormones optimized first TESTOSTERONE, PROGESTERONE, ESTROGEN and THYROID. Getting your HGH levels back to optimal ranges is considered that “fountain of youth”.
No. This has been a misconception for a long time, and there is no proven evidence to support it. According to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, multiple studies have concluded that Human Growth Hormone replacement therapy does not increase the risk of cancer compared to the general population. Given this safety profile we will not treat cancer patients until we can
No. this is another misconception. An American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine study demonstrated that after a nine-month treatment with Human Growth Hormone, there was an improvement in insulin sensitivity in all of the patients in the study. There is other research though that shows it may cause insulin resistance. This is why we don’t actually use actually HGH in our practice and only utilize peptides to increase GH in the body. We believe this is the safest method of GH therapy; and it’s much more affordable.
No. Over the counter supplements are usually amino acids like L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-ornithine. While high doses of these compounds sometimes produce a release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland, the effect is small. Also the levels of these compounds need to be so high that they can cause stomach upset. To date there is no method that safely and EFFECTIVELY increases GH levels other then actual HGH or peptide therapy.
