Somatotropin/Somatropin Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of Somatotropin Supplements and Somatropin Injections

Somatotropin—also known as human growth hormone (HGH) or simply as growth hormone (GH)—is a polypeptide produced by somatotrope cells in the pituitary gland. It supports skeletal growth in children and adolescents, and plays a role in metabolism, body composition, muscle growth and tissue repair in adults. In addition to the somatotropin naturally produced by the body, a synthetic form of HGH called somatropin is available with a doctor’s prescription. Certain health and bodybuilding supplements may also help increase somatotropin production through natural ingredients known as HGH releasers. Many of these ingredients can be found in the proprietary-blend formulas of Somatropinne HGH, Growth Factor Plus, HGH 30,000 Nanograms, A-MAX 50, and HGF MAX, among others.

Functions of Somatotropin

Children and adolescents require somatotropin for proper growth and development; those with an HGH deficiency may require somatropin injections to achieve normal height. In adults, somatotropin helps maintain healthy tissues and organs. It can also increase bone density, muscle mass, and protein synthesis as well as decrease body fat and improve exercise capacity. Because HGH production naturally declines with age, some adults take somatotropin-boosting supplements to enhance their athletic performance and combat the physical signs of aging.

Sources of Somatotropin/Somatropin

For most individuals, the primary source of somatotropin is the body’s endogenous production by the somatotropic cells of the pituitary gland. The body produces its highest levels of somatotropin during childhood and adolescence; these levels significantly decline when the individual reaches full adult height. Scientists have also developed a synthetic form of somatotropin known as somatropin or somatrem, using E. coli or mammalian cells to create therapeutic proteins in a laboratory setting. Somatropin is chemically identical to the somatotropin that is produced by the pituitary gland and administered by subcutaneous injection. It is a regulated substance, which means it can only be legally prescribed for FDA-approved uses.

Since somatropin injections are not legally available to healthy adults, those seeking the benefits of somatotropin may opt to take natural supplements that are designed to boost the body’s own HGH production. Certain amino acids are recognized as natural HGH releasers—including GABA, arginine, ornithine, glutamine, lysine, tyrosine and glycine—so dietary supplements containing these ingredients may help increase somatotropin levels.

Somatropin Benefits and Uses

The pituitary gland’s secretion of somatotropin supports bodily growth and development throughout childhood and adolescence, so the most common reason for prescribing somatropin is to treat children and teens with HGH deficiency or specific medical conditions. FDA-approved pediatric uses of somatropin include idiopathic growth hormone deficiency, Noonan syndrome, Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, chronic renal insufficiency, short stature homeobox-containing gene (SHOX) deficiency, and idiopathic short stature.

Although HGH levels naturally decline with age, somatotropin continues to play a role throughout adulthood—helping to regulate metabolism and protein synthesis and promoting organ, tissue and bone health. Somatropin may be legally prescribed to adults who have severe HGH deficiency, which normally occurs due to a pituitary adenoma (tumor) or adenoma-related surgery or radiation treatments. It is also sometimes prescribed to prevent or minimize wasting in AIDS patients.

Somatropin injections can improve bone density, muscle mass and exercise capacity in adults with HGH deficiency, and they can produce similar outcomes in healthy adults. As a result, some bodybuilders and athletes take somatropin to enhance their athletic performance and physique. However, it should be noted that somatropin cannot legally be prescribed for such purposes. Furthermore, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), International Olympic Committee and numerous sports organizations have banned the use of HGH injections among athletes.

Given the potential repercussions associated with illegal somatropin injections, many bodybuilders, athletes and aging adults have starting taking natural HGH supplements to help the body increase its own somatotropin production. Proponents of somatotropin-boosting supplements report that these natural HGH releasers have helped them develop lean muscle, improve their strength and endurance, and recover from intense workouts and injuries more quickly. They also credit HGH supplements with enhancing their body composition and slowing the visible signs of aging.

Somatropin Side Effects

Individuals considering HGH injections should be aware of somatropin side effects and interactions. Some users have experienced an allergic reaction, with symptoms such as itching or rashes, chest pain, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face, tongue, or throat. Other possible side effects include headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, fluid retention, swelling of the hands or feet, muscle stiffness or pain, and burning, tingling or numbness in the skin. Somatropin may increase the risk of developing diabetes, cancer or pancreatitis, and it can cause dislocation of the hipbone that results in limping or knee/hip pain. Interactions have been recorded when somatropin is used with estrogen hormone replacement or glucocorticoids (such as prednisone or hydrocortisone), and somatropin can cause adverse effects in patients with diabetes, scoliosis, kidney disease and certain other medical conditions.

Somatotropin-boosting HGH supplements tend to have fewer and less severe side effects than somatropin injections; however, the side effects and interactions will vary depending on the supplement’s ingredients.

More detailed safety information on somatropin side effects, interactions and precautions can be found on the Mayo Clinic website. For natural somatotropin-boosting supplements, refer to the relevant ingredient articles on HGH.com to learn about potential side effects and interactions. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before using somatropin injections or natural HGH supplements.

Somatotropin/Somatropin Research and Studies

Researchers have conducted numerous studies on both the natural and synthetic forms of somatotropin. Visit the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explore the latest somatotropin research and somatropin studies. For research on specific ingredients that have been shown to boost somatotropin levels, refer to the corresponding ingredient articles on the HGH.com blog.

You will discover there is a wealth of information on at HGH.com. We recently posted this related blog post on HGH/somatotropin: Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, Supplements

Human growth hormone (HGH)—also known as somatotropin or simply as growth hormone (GH)—is a polypeptide hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland. It promotes growth in children and adolescents, and plays a role in body composition, metabolism, muscle growth and tissue repair in adults. Beyond the human growth hormones naturally produced by the body, synthetic HGH—or recombinant HGH—is manufactured in laboratories and may be obtained with a doctor’s prescription. Select health and bodybuilding supplements may also help boost human growth hormone levels with natural ingredients known as HGH releasers or HGH secretagogues. Many of these ingredients can be found in products such as HGH 30,000 Nanograms, Somatropinne HGH, Ana-GH, DBol-GH and Growth Factor Plus, among others.

Functions of Human Growth Hormone

HGH is required to support proper growth and development in children and adolescents, and it also plays a role in adult metabolism. Human growth hormone can help increase muscle mass, bone density, exercise capacity and protein synthesis, and may decrease body fat. It also helps maintain healthy tissues and organs. Since human growth hormone production naturally declines with age, many believe that HGH supplementation can help improve athletic performance and provide anti-aging benefits in adults.

Sources of HGH

As previously noted, the primary source of human growth hormone is the pituitary gland. HGH production peaks during childhood and adolescence, and substantially declines once full adult height is attained. Laboratory-manufactured synthetic HGH—also known as recombinant HGH, somatropin or somatrem—is another source of growth hormone available to some individuals. This injectable form of HGH may be prescribed to children and some adults that have been diagnosed with human growth hormone deficiency or specific medical conditions. Synthetic HGH is a regulated substance and may only legally be prescribed for FDA-approved uses. These include Turner’s syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, chronic renal insufficiency and idiopathic short stature in children, as well as HGH deficiency and AIDS-related wasting in adults.

Since recombinant HGH is not legally available to healthy adults, many individuals rely on natural HGH supplements that are formulated to increase their body’s own production of human growth hormone. A number of amino acids are recognized as natural HGH releasers. These include L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-glycine, L-lysine, L-ornithine, L-tyrosine and GABA.

Human Growth Hormone Benefits and Uses

The main purpose of HGH is to support human growth and development during childhood and adolescence, and this is the most common reason synthetic HGH is prescribed to young patients. However, human growth hormone continues to play a role throughout adulthood; it helps to regulate metabolism and protein synthesis and supports bone, tissue and organ health. Recombinant HGH may be legally prescribed to adults who have severe HGH deficiency, which typically results from a pituitary adenoma (tumor) or treatment of an adenoma with surgery or radiotherapy. Synthetic growth hormone is also sometimes prescribed to treat the wasting syndrome that can occur in individuals with AIDS.

Human growth hormone injections can increase muscle mass, bone density and exercise capacity in adults with HGH deficiency, and it can produce similar effects in healthy adults. For this reason, some athletes and bodybuilders take recombinant HGH to improve their physique and athletic performance, even though it cannot legally be prescribed for such purposes and is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), International Olympic Committee and numerous sports organizations.

In light of the controversy and legal restrictions surrounding injectable HGH, a growing number of athletes, bodybuilders and aging adults have turned to natural HGH supplements to help boost the pituitary gland’s secretion of human growth hormone. Many report that L-group amino acids and other natural HGH releasers have helped them build lean muscle, enhance bodily strength, increase athletic endurance, tone their physique, recover faster from intense workouts and injuries, and minimize or reverse the visible signs of aging.

HGH Side Effects

Synthetic human growth hormone injections are associated with a number of side effects that can range widely in severity. Among the more serious HGH side effects some patients have experienced are atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), hypertension (high blood pressure), and abnormal growth of bones and internal organs such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. HGH may also increase the risk of developing diabetes and can cause cancerous tumors to grow in size. Other human growth hormone side effects include: edema (swelling caused by excess fluid in tissues); carpal tunnel syndrome; joint, muscle or nerve pain; numbness or tingling sensations in the skin; headaches; dizziness; blurred vision; chest pain; irregular heartbeat; and a rash or itching near the injection site.

Natural HGH supplements tend to have fewer and less severe side effects than synthetic growth hormone injections; however, the side effects and interactions will vary depending on the ingredients.

More detailed safety information on synthetic HGH side effects can be found on the Mayo Clinic website under the “Growth Hormone (Parenteral Route)” entry. For natural HGH supplements, refer to the relevant supplement ingredient articles on HGH.com to learn about potential side effects and interactions. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before using synthetic human growth hormone injections or HGH supplements.

HGH Research and Studies

A wide body of research exists on human growth hormones, including naturally produced HGH, recombinant HGH and ingredients that function as HGH releasers. Refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for an overview of the latest HGH research or to search for articles highlighting the results of human growth hormone studies. For research on specific ingredients that function as HGH releasers, refer to the relevant ingredient articles on the HGH.com blog.

How to Gain Muscle Fast using Natural Bodybuilding Supplements

 
 
You can use Natural Bodybuilding Supplements 
legally and safely to Gain Muscle Fast

How to use natural bodybuilding supplements to gain muscle fast

For most individuals who use bodybuilding supplements, the goal is not only to make gains in muscular mass, density and strength, but to make these gains as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, some individuals believe that the only way to make the fastest possible gains is by using steroids or artificial bodybuilding supplements. Although these types of supplements can yield fast, noticeable gains, they can also lead to dangerous side effects and severe health problems, now and in the future. No amount of expedited bodybuilding progress is worth ruining your health, even if a competition is quickly approaching. The answer is to make wise use of natural bodybuilding supplements, which leads to safer, more maintainable gains without the unnecessary health risks.

For a list of our (safe and legal) bodybuilding supplements, visit http://www.hgh.com

Natural Bodybuilding Supplements for Quick, Effective Bodybuilding Gains

When choosing natural bodybuilding supplements to make the fastest possible gains, the most important thing you can do is research the individual supplements you're considering to determine how they can be strategically implemented into your bodybuilding routine. Certain supplements are intended to be used during the bodybuilding off-season, when your main goal is to make major gains in muscular bulk, strength and density. Other supplements are better suited for competition season, when your goal is to cut into the fat you build up during the off-season and increase muscle definition and toning, revealing the muscles you've worked so hard to achieve.

Without this understanding, you could very easily use high-quality natural bodybuilding supplements at the wrong time, and assume that they don't work properly when the real problem is user error. This is why it's so important to read the literature included with the supplement by the manufacturer rather than assuming that all natural bodybuilding supplements serve the same purpose.

Combining Diet and Exercise with Natural Bodybuilding Supplements

Even the best and most effective natural bodybuilding supplements won't turn a couch potato into Mr. Olympia unless they're combined with proper exercise and dietary habits. In other words, if you take a bodybuilding supplement and think this means you can start ignoring your strength training routine, you'll quickly realize that you have no gain in muscular mass, definition, strength or density.

For example, many natural bodybuilding supplements are designed to speed the rate at which your muscles recover from exercise, allowing you to work out more frequently with a lower risk of injury and ultimately enjoy faster gains as a result. However, if you don't have the motivation to increase your workout frequency, it will make little difference in the pace of your bodybuilding progress.

Your diet is also crucial. Many bodybuilding supplements are designed to increase your appetite, or allow your muscles to utilize the protein you feed them faster and more effectively. However, the supplement itself may not include protein of its own, so unless you're eating protein-rich foods such as lean cuts of meat, beans and peanut butter (or natural whey protein supplements) with regularity, there will be no protein for your muscles to utilize, much less utilize more efficiently.

Specific Bodybuilding Pills To Look At:


  1. ANA-GH

    This is a great Mass Building supplement. Doesn't taste bad (because it's a pill and not a powder). Won't cause stomach issues. Great Mass Gain, No Side Effects. http://www.hgh.com/ana-gh.aspx
  2. CLEN-XDV

    Great Fat Burner and Muscle Builder. This pill has tremendous fat building properties as well as muscle building properties. http://www.hgh.com/clen-xdv.aspx

 




Deer Antler Velvet - Why It's Important and Great!

Deer Antler Velvet is a newer ingredient that is seeing a lot of traction in the bodybuilding supplement industry. Endorsed by many pro athletes now, including NFL and NBA all stars, Deer Antler Velvet is known to increase stamina, endurance, strength, and muscle tone.

You will find that in many HGH Supplements, Deer Antler Velvet will be a primary ingredient. This has become a very important ingredient and depending on which supplement you go with, Deer Antler Velvet will make all the difference.

What's even better about Deer Antler Velvet is that the known side effects are minimal and not harmful. Most consumers experience the positive benefits listed above, in addition to joint relief, better immune function, increased mental capacity, and even greater sexual endurance.

Deer Antler Velvet is the modern day HGH. It's even better than HGH in a way since you can take it in a pill form and your stomach acids won't kill it, unlike liquid HGH (injections). That is why we developed HGH Supplements (in pill form) - the supplements are pills supplementing the effects and benefits of HGH.

In summary, from now on, when you see the Deer Antler Velvet ingredient in a pill, that's probably a good thing if you're looking for these benefits:

  • Increased Sports Stamina
  • Increased Muscle Strength
  • Added Muscle Ton
  • Better Immune Functions
  • Joint Pain Relief
  • Increased Concentration
  • Fat Burning
  • Added Sexual Endurance
  • Added Strengh
You can find Deer Antler Velvet in some HGH.com HGH Pills including:
  1. Clenbuterol XDV (CLEN XDV) - Used for Fat Burning and Building Lean Muscle
  2. Maximizer Penis Enlargement - Deer Antler Velvet used for added sexual endurance
  3. HGH Spray - Deer Antler Velvet used for all benefits listed above.
