HGH Information and Resources

Excerpts and Links to HGH Information and Resources

At HGH.com, we are proud to be recognized as the leading manufacturer and producer of natural natural bodybuilding, fitness, health and HGH supplements. Below you will find a collection of informative and educational HGH related articles to help our customers, patrons and end-users have a place to learn all about HGH.

HGH, Human Growth Hormone (Somatropinne) - How it works

"HGH" stands for "Human Growth Hormone". Growth Hormones are produced naturally by the body's pituitary gland at the base of the human brain. However, the body sometimes does not produce enough of the hormone, which can stunt growth. Further, the amount of growth hormone decreases exponetially (naturally) as you get older. This "aging" can take a toll on your body, which can be even more affected with unsteady or unhealthy diets or lack of exercise. Read the full article on How HGH Works at http://www.hgh.com/how-hgh-works.aspx.

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

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. - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/human-growth-hormone-hgh-benefits-uses-side-effects-and-functions

Somatotropin/Somatropin Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

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. 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 - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/somatotropin-somatropin-bnefits-uses-side-effects-and-functions

Human Growth Hormones - A Quick Primer

Human Growth Hormones are substances in our bodies that we should all value, greatly, but we probably never even think about them or hear about all the wonderful things they can do for us. As adults in crisis, either through an AIDS related disease, cancer, surgery, or the effects of too much radiation, these hormones can help us recover. As elder citizens, HGH can help fight muscle loss and other signs of aging. Read the full article at http://www.hgh.com/articles/human-growth-hormones/index.aspx

HGH Reduces Body Fat - Benefits of HGH

Upon turning 40, some people experience what is commonly called “middle-age spread.” Regardless of diet or exercise, it becomes harder and harder to keep the stomach area from storing up fatty deposits.HGH supplements are used to stave off the accumulation of fat around the stomach and vital organs, thus helping to avoid a potential heart attack or a worse health condition down the road.

How to Increase HGH Levels Naturally

In recent years, I’ve seen a growing level of interest in how to increase HGH levels naturally, particularly among bodybuilders and athletes. Given the controversy and issues associated with synthetic HGH injections, many people are seeking out natural ways to increase their body’s own production of HGH. This is something that I do myself, and it’s a topic I’ve often discussed with our HGH.com-sponsored athletes – IFBB pros Tricky Jackson, Ben White and Tara Silzer. So I decided to compile our top tips in one blog post, which highlights seven effective ways to naturally boost HGH levels - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/how-to-increase-hgh-levels-naturally

 




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.

GABA Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, or GABA

Gamma-aminobutyric acid, more commonly known as GABA, is a non-protein amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter. GABA and its precursor, glutamate, are the most abundant neurotransmitters in the central nervous system, particularly in the cerebral cortex. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter while GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, so their actions are complementary. In addition to being produced within the body, GABA is also available as an ingredient in select health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGF MAX and HGH 30,000 Nanograms spray.

Functions of GABA

As an inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA balances the excitatory effect of glutamate in the developed brain and helps to control cortical stimulation. Due to this action, GABA can have a calming or tranquilizing effect, including anxiolytic and anti-convulsive properties. Evidence suggests it may also stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) production, thereby serving as a natural HGH releaser.

Sources of GABA

GABA is produced by the body, where it is synthesized from glutamate through decarboxylation. While GABA is not naturally found in fresh foods, it can be created through lactobacillus fermentation; therefore, GABA may be consumed in fermented foods such as kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, miso, kefir and yogurt, as well as in GABA-fortified foods. In addition, foods that contain GABA’s precursors—glutamic acid or L-glutamine—can help boost GABA levels. Dietary sources of glutamate/glutamine include whole grains, brown rice, beef liver, pork, halibut, mackerel, lentils, broccoli, bananas and tree nuts. Vitamins B-6 and B-12 are required for GABA synthesis, so taking these vitamins may help support GABA production. Finally, GABA may also be consumed orally as an ingredient in natural dietary supplements.

GABA Benefits and Uses

Evidence has shown that GABA may help treat hypertension, so it is sometimes used in medications that are designed to lower blood pressure. The method of action appears to be due to GABA’s ability to suppress the sympathetic nervous activity that leads to high blood pressure. GABA’s anticonvulsant properties suggest that it may be effective in reducing the frequency of seizures in some individuals, while its calming effects may help reduce stress, relieve anxiety, elevate mood, and improve focus and concentration.

A number of studies have indicated that GABA may act as a natural HGH releaser, or HGH secretagogue. In light of its potential to stimulate HGH production, GABA-containing supplements are often taken to support lean muscle growth, decrease body fat and enhance exercise tolerance. Furthermore, GABA is believed to have an analgesic effect, so it may help to alleviate feelings of pain or soreness after an intense workout.

Side Effects of GABA and Potential Interactions

GABA supplementation is generally considered safe for healthy adults; no side effects have been reported at commonly administered dosages. However, since GABA has been shown to reduce blood pressure, supplements containing GABA may increase the risk of hypotension (abnormally low blood pressure) when taken in conjunction with antihypertensive drugs.

More detailed safety information on GABA side effects and interactions can be found in the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (subscription required). As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing GABA.

GABA Research and Studies

Many researchers have explored the use of GABA to treat medical conditions such as hypertension and anxiety. Numerous animal and human studies—including some published in the British Journal of Nutrition, Journal of Physiological Anthropology, Clinical and Experimental Hypertension, Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, and Transgenic Research—have revealed GABA’s ability to lower blood pressure in cases of hypertension. Other studies have demonstrated its relaxing, immunity-enhancing and anti-anxiety effects. According to an article in BioFactors, GABA not only induces relaxation but also reduces anxiety; and evidence suggests it may enhance immunity under stress conditions. An animal study published Neuroscience found that GABA decreases anxiety-like behavior in rats. Furthermore, researchers documented GABA’s neuroprotective effects in the Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology, which reported that GABA-producing Lactobacillus buchneri protected neuronal cells against neurotoxicant-induced cell death. Some researchers have explored the potential of GABA to be used in an analgesic capacity for pain relief—as described in Advances in Pharmacology, Neurochemical Research and the European Journal of Pharmacology—though further evidence is needed to accurately evaluate its effectiveness for this use.

Multiple studies have indicated that GABA is capable of promoting human growth hormone (HGH) secretion; relevant findings have been published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, Acta Endocrinologica, Medicine and Sport Science, and other journals and textbooks. One study featured in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise examined the effect of GABA ingestion on immunoreactive growth hormone (irGH) and immunofunctional growth hormone (ifGH) release at rest and after exercise, and found that GABA elevates both resting and post-exercise HGH concentrations. Bodybuilders and athletes often take GABA supplements to help increase muscle growth, enhance muscle tone, burn fat and improve exercise tolerance. However, while GABA has been shown to stimulate HGH secretion, further clinical studies are needed to prove a direct correlation between GABA and other purported health and fitness benefits.

For additional GABA research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
