When guys reach 30 years old, they enter a period known as “somatopause,” where human growth hormone levels start to drop profoundly. Human growth hormone or popularly known as HGH can turn back your body’s internal clock, helping you rapidly build muscle, slash fat, and increase libido, all while sending energy levels through the roof. But when it comes to discussions on HGH, there are often more questions than answers.
To help you decide whether you need HGH, check out our straightforward Q&A, which answers some of the more commonly asked questions and learn how to take control of your HGH production naturally and through the use of synthetic sources.
What is human growth hormone (HGH)?
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a complex, protein-based peptide hormone. This important hormone is produced in the Pituitary Gland, sometimes referred to as the ‘Master Gland’, which is an extension of the brain This hormone stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and regeneration in our bodies. The pituitary gland naturally secretes the hormone, but production gradually decreases as we age.
What are the signs of low HGH levels?
The list of symptoms associated with HGH deficiency is extensive. Because HGH has receptors in the brain, you might experience depression, changes in mood, trouble sleeping, poor concentration, impaired cognitive functions, and memory loss.
Physically, HGH deficiency can cause weight gain, muscle loss, decreased bone density, wrinkles, cellulite, sagging skin, brittle nails, thinning hair, balding, or greying of hair. Other symptoms of HGH deficiency include low libido and erectile dysfunction.
What are the benefits of HGH?
Some of the benefits of HGH therapy include improved oxygen flow, metabolic stimulation to burn fat, promotion of hair, skin and nail health, increased bone density, improved blood flow, improved focus and concentration, enhanced orgasms and endurance, improved sex drive and erectile function.
How do I know if I have low HGH?
A visit to a doctor’s office can help determine that. Your doctor will take a thorough history, do a physical examination and take some blood samples. Once the test results are in, your doctor will be able to determine if you have low human growth hormone levels.
Does low HGH affect the production of testosterone?
Yes. Men who suffer from diseases such as erectile dysfunction often have low levels of HGH in the body, which means that their level of testosterone is low as well.
How can I boost the levels of HGH in the body?
There are various ways you can boost the levels of HGH in the body, namely HGH injections, and even natural ways. Some of the natural ways include exercising, getting enough sleep, reducing stress, a healthy diet, and intermittent fasting.
HGH injections, on the other hand, is whereby the growth hormones are directly administered into the body and gets absorbed into the bloodstream directly. There are oral supplements available on the market claiming to increase growth hormone levels but there is no HGH oral supplement that actually contains human growth hormone and ingesting these supplements will do nothing to increase your level of human growth hormone.
What are the different types of HGH injections?
Some of the most popular injector options for adult HGH therapy include Single-use, prefilled, disposable syringes, human growth hormone pens that use interchangeable cartridges, HGH injector pen systems that are all-in-one units that come prefilled with HGH and Standard vials of lyophilized HGH powder.
What are the side effects of Growth Hormone products?
Not everyone who uses HGH gets side effects. Side effects are also dose dependent i.e. higher doses come with a higher probability of getting side effects.
Growth hormone product side effects may include:
- Elevated blood glucose levels
- redness at the injection site
- joint pain
- in rare cases a rash.
Where can I get HGH in Malaysia?
HGH should be used with utmost care and consideration. While the risks of HGH therapy cannot be eliminated completely, they can be mitigated under the watchful eye of a knowledgeable medical doctor.
Only use HGH that you get via a doctor’s prescription and check in regularly with your doctor while you’re taking it. People who purchase HGH illegally may be getting tainted or impure products, which are potentially dangerous. There are many online websites which promise genuine HGH products but in truth they are fake. I’m sure there are some of you who have been approached by “agents” in the gym trying to sell their “body enhancing” products.
If you get the drug illicitly, you may not know what you are really getting. Because of the high cost, HGH drugs have been counterfeited. If you are not getting HGH from your doctor, you may be getting an unapproved product.
The bottom line is that taking HGH could have potentially disastrous consequences, especially if you don’t have a valid prescription and regular follow-ups with your doctor.
Talk to your doctor before considering any form of HGH.
