Human growth hormone therapy (also known as HGH or HGH replacement therapy) is a medical treatment which has been receiving an increasing amount of press recently. Many experts are of the opinion that HGH can help to reduce or even reverse many of the physical effects of aging including loss of muscle mass and corresponding increase in body fat, sleep disturbances and a loss of mental acuity, among other effects.
Many people have high hopes about HGH replacement therapy – mostly that it will help them combat aging so they can feel young even as they age. There is also though a quickly growing community that are using human growth hormone therapy supplements for the purpose of bodybuilding and/or weight loss.
Human growth hormone therapy today comes in many forms. This excludes HGH injections which needs medical supervision and recommended only for those suffering from certain medical conditions. The two popular forms of HGH therapy today are HGH sprays and human growth hormone supplements.
HGH sprays are tinctures which are taken orally and include amino acids, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients which are formulated to stimulate the pituitary gland into producing HGH naturally. The hormone is released into the body, causing the liver to produce what is known as IGF-I (insulin-like growth factor I), which helps the body to maintain and build tissue.
Part of the reason for the popularity of HGH sprays is that these products are very easy to use. These oral sprays are used behind the tongue once or twice a day. People who use oral HGH sprays on a daily basis say that they have a greater sense of well being, more energy, increased mental clarity and better overall health, with the effects being noticeable in a few weeks time.
HGH supplements work just like HGH sprays, with only the delivery system differing. Rather than sprays, these supplements are in the form of powders, tablets or capsules which are usually taken once or twice per day. Their effects are much the same as the sprays, with users reporting a loss of fat and increase in lean muscle mass, better sleep and a higher sex drive, among other benefits.
The advantages of human growth therapy are various and wide-ranging. However, much of the scientific evidence which proves its effectiveness has only been based on data on HGH therapy through injections. However, there is continuous evidence proving the same effects when using HGH supplements and oral sprays. Although the results are generally slow and take a few months, the ease of use and its lack of negative side effects make them better alternatives to HGH injections.
Some of the potential benefits of using HGH therapy include: Decreased body fat Increase in lean muscle mass Injuries heal more quickly Increased bone density, including a regression in osteoporosis symptoms Greater mental clarity and better memory Improved immune function Better skin texture – and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles More energy
