Growth hormone deficiency often causes a decline in muscle mass and other low-quality of life symptoms. Working out and eating healthy is not enough to maintain health over time. Many people are trying to increase their natural growth hormone levels by using HGH supplements. However, this has also been associated with side effects like sleep apnea, worsening depression, and increased heart attack or stroke risk.
The best way to increase your natural levels of human growth hormone is by consuming specific nutritional and herbal supplements that benefit healthy hormonal balance. The natural medicine department at our clinic can help you or your loved one find the right formula for boosting growth hormone production.
Growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland, a pea-sized structure near the brain’s base. The pituitary gland produces several different hormones, including growth hormone (GH), also known as somatotropin. Growth hormone regulates cell metabolism to ensure that cells grow as much as they need to but not more.
The primary role of growth hormone is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to produce IGF1 (insulin-like growth factor 1), a potent hormone that stimulates growth in bones, tissues, and muscles. Without enough GH, the body’s tissues cannot function properly. This can lead to low energy levels, increased fat accumulation, decreased muscle mass, and other symptoms associated with age-related decline.
In most people with healthy levels of GH in their bodies, excess growth hormone is broken down by another hormone called somatostatin. If you have extra growth hormone in your blood from natural or synthetic GH supplements, this extra GH has nowhere to go and can build up within the body. Growth hormone and IGF1 are linked with an increased risk of blood clots and cancer.
There is no known natural way to boost your body’s growth hormone levels. Approved GH treatments include injectable formulations that are only effective while being injected. Studies comparing human growth hormone treatments to placebos have not shown any statistically significant difference in improving health and fitness.
The most effective way to increase natural levels of GH is by consuming specific nutritional supplements and herbs that support healthy hormonal balance. These nutrients help protect cells from the harmful effects of excess growth hormone and IGF1, while increasing the cells’ sensitivity to growth hormone, making it more effective. This allows cells to function correctly even with lower daily production of natural human growth hormone.
If you have been diagnosed with low-quality of life symptoms such as poor sleep or depression, a natural hormone supplement may be able to help you. The right nutritionist can help determine which supplements help the most and then customize a formula based on your treatment goals.
The main benefits of human growth hormone medicine are recovering from illness, increased strength and energy, improved muscle mass, and increased nitrogen elimination in the urine. Growth hormones relax smooth muscle tissues in the blood vessels, allowing for more efficient oxygen exchange and easier removal of waste products from cells. This can improve mental functions associated with aging and heart health and even enhance immune functions.
Natural human growth hormones can also improve skin elasticity, promote muscle repair, and aid in tissue healing after surgery or other injuries. Growth hormones can help treat conditions associated with aging, such as diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and heart disease.
Growth hormone is the most abundant hormone in the body and is especially important for children. It helps them grow into adulthood by increasing muscle strength, protein synthesis, and bone density. After puberty ends, growth hormone production declines naturally every year. The decline of natural growth hormone levels can also accelerate the aging process in adults by causing low energy levels, weight gain due to increased fat storage, and a decline in muscle mass.
