The human growth hormone (HGH) is a natural body-produced substance secreted by the pituitary gland in humans. According to research, the HGH levels can be linked with aging.
Along with prolactin, another “anti-aging” hormone produced by the pituitary gland, HGH levels decline with age until mortality. HGH levels remain relatively stable from age 20 until age 65, after which levels begin slowing to a steady decline. The decline in HGH values is associated with the aging process.
HGH levels can be measured in blood, urine, or saliva. The main indicator of HGH level is the serum concentration of this substance, which correlates well with the actual amount of HGH produced by the pituitary gland. Low hormone levels are an important factor determining mortality among humans and other animals.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) has been shown to reverse the age-related decline in muscle mass, physical performance, and muscle function.
To level the playing field for fair and equal treatment of our aging population, we must consider it vitally important to examine how aging affects our health care system.
Many people do not know or forget that the medical community operates under a profit motive. Pharmaceutical companies are permitted to make a very large profit off of their products, especially when they are ‘life-saving’ or ‘life-enhancing,’ such as the HGH. The U.S. government also allows pharmaceutical companies to sell any drug approved by the FDA at whatever price they deem necessary (with no oversight).
While this incentive may be suitable for producing new life-enhancing drugs, it also allows pharmaceutical companies to charge crippling prices for products whose sole purpose is to enhance longevity rather than save lives. This price gouging hurts the average person and places them at a disadvantage when it comes time to cover the costs of their care.
The phrase ‘anti-aging’ must be used with caution when referring to HGH replacement therapy or hormone replacement therapy in general. While some drugs are used to delay the onset or slowing of aging, they may not be safe to use long-term. Although aging slows down the rate at which HGH is produced, it does not stop it entirely. The body produces less and less HGH as it ages means that more and more of this hormone is being consumed each year to keep up with the declining output. Therefore, a drug that stops production altogether would be theoretically harmful and could adversely affect the human body.
Nonetheless, there are many options when it comes to HGH replacement therapy to slow the process of aging and help maintain youthful health and vitality. A natural option would include:
• Eating a healthy diet rich in antioxidants and other nutrients, including those found in soy products.
• Exercising regularly.
• Taking supplements that have been proven helpful by clinical trials.
• Engaging in healthy lifestyle choices.
Who is a Suitable Candidate for Anti-Aging Hormone Therapy?
If you’ve been diagnosed with HGH deficiency, are experiencing the effects of aging, and want to improve your health, HGH therapy may be right for you. You may also qualify if you have a condition or disease associated with low Human Growth Hormone levels, such as AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and obesity.
If this is your road, you should know:
FDA-approved HGH for anti-aging therapy only increases levels to normal—it doesn’t make a person younger. Many other elements play a role in healthy aging, including overall health and diet.
HGH therapy is not meant to be used as an anti-aging shortcut but as a treatment option for deficient patients. HGH treatment is probably not for you if you are perfectly healthy or if you are only interested in slowing the aging process without the help of replacement therapy.
