Human Growth Hormone (Somatropin) is a protein hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland. HGH represents one of the most important hormones in the human body as it affects our bones, skeletal muscle and internal organs, as well as plays roles in numerous other areas throughout the body. Also supports the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and minerals. Through its direct mode of action, it can also stimulate the growth of connective tissue. Beyond connective tissue growth, HGH has been shown to significantly increase the size and number of cells in skeletal muscle.
The hormone will also further support triglyceride hydrolysis, which in turn will promote the reduction of adipose tissue or body fat. So effective in its abilities surrounding fat, HGH has been shown to significantly reduce total cholesterol levels. In its direct functioning capacity, Human Growth Hormone sends a signal to the cells in the muscle, bone and adipose tissue to promote anabolism and lipolysis.
Human Growth Hormone – Duration of Use:
In a therapeutic setting, male Human Growth Hormone doses will normally fall in the 1-3iu per day range.
For the female patient, Human Growth Hormone doses will normally fall in the 1-2iu per day range.
Regardless of the total dosing, Human Growth Hormone is not something that produces fast results. The hormone will be relatively useless if only used for a short period of time. In order to promote fat loss and enhance recovery, at minimum the individual will need 8-12 weeks of use with 16 weeks being far more effective. For true anabolic growth, the individual will need to plan on continuous HGH therapy at a decent dose for a minimum of six months. In a therapeutic setting, specifically anti-aging, total use will be indefinite. Most plans will call for continuous therapy or at least therapy that last the majority of the year.
