What is Human Growth Hormone Therapy?
Our level of Human Growth Hormone is less than half by the time we hit middle age. When this important hormone decreases, we begin to experience symptoms, such as: weight gain, decreased energy, changes in the way we sleep, low libido, and more. But, what is human growth hormone? The pituitary gland, the master gland of the human body, is responsible for the production of several different hormones. One of these hormones, the human growth hormone (or HGH) serves many important purposes in the body that are related to growth. Among these, HGH produces an increase in cell tissue growth, increases muscle mass, contributes to strong bones, and stimulates the immune system.
Originally, HGH was used to boost the growth and development in children suffering from growth hormone deficiencies. However, HGH has an effect on body composition, not just growth. People with HGH deficiencies, generally due to types of pituitary disease, have increased body fat and decreased muscle mass and bone density. Which, consequently, are also symptoms of aging. Therefore, a group of doctors in 1990 published study in the New England Journal of Medicine called “Effects of Human Growth Hormone in Men over 60 Years Old” concluded that “diminished secretion of growth hormone is responsible in part for the decrease of lean body mass, the expansion of adipose-tissue mass, and the thinning of the skin that occur in old age.” And, most importantly for our purposes at Revitalogy, the study also found that men who were given Human Growth Hormone Therapy saw improved muscle mass, decreased body fat, and better bone density.
Human Growth Hormone Therapy is the administration of Sermorelin Acetate (Sermorelin Forte Plus) Therapy, a growth hormone-releasing agonist (a substance that initiates a physiological response when combined with a receptor). It works by stimulating the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.
How is Human Growth Hormone Therapy Administered?
HGH is prescribed as liquid and a powder with a diluting solution for use as an injectable delivery method. These are the only formulations that have been approved by the FDA. HGH sprays and pills are available without a prescription and do not have FDA approval. Sermorelin Acetate is a medication that must be prescribed by a licensed physician.
