Human growth hormone (HGH) replacement therapy has many antiaging benefits.
Before we discuss the various antiaging benefits of HGH therapy, first, you need to have a clear understanding of exactly what we mean by the term “antiaging” or that some food, hormone, or supplement possesses antiaging abilities.
Antiaging medicine is the branch of medicine that aims to reduce the chance of developing aging-related diseases and conditions by targeting the biological process of aging through lifestyle changes and proven therapies such as growth hormone replacement.
The world’s largest advocate for antiaging medicine is the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). Doctor Ronald Klatz, one of the Founders of A4M and author of the book, Grow Young with HGH, has said, “The antiaging effects of growth hormone are global, acting on both mind and body, anatomy and physiology, form and function. By replenishing your supply of growth hormone, you can recover your vigor, health, looks, and sexuality.”
The many antiaging benefits of HGH therapy have been well-documented. Here are seven of the top antiaging benefits of HGH.
One of the main benefits of HGH therapy for both men and women regardless of age is an improved sex life. As people age, one of the first things they notice is a drop in the sex drive, or libido, and other sexual performance issues. In men, that usually means erectile dysfunction. As women age, they can experience a decreased desire for sex, vaginal dryness, and other sexual health issues. In both genders, these sexual problems can be related to the drop in HGH that occurs as we age.
In men and women with sexual health issues related to HGH loss, growth hormone replacement therapy can help.
Clinical research has shown that human growth hormone (HGH) can improve bone health and reduce the risk of osteoporosis and osteoporosis-related fractures.
Human growth hormone, or HGH, has been scientifically proven to help prevent and treat osteoporosis. A landmark study published in 2015 in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that for many years after it was given, HGH continued to reduce the risk of fractures and helped maintain bone density in postmenopausal women who had osteoporosis.
Since then, a recent literature review and meta-analysis indicated that growth hormone replacement therapy reduces the risk for fracture in all patients with osteoporosis, men and women. The researchers concluded that HGH can enhance bone mass and can protect against osteoporosis fractures “quite efficiently.”
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is vitally important for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin.
The key to healthy, young-looking skin is collagen. Collagen is a protein that supports your skin’s strength and elasticity. Think of collagen as the foundation of your house. As the foundation gets old and worn, it can cause the house above it to settle and crack. The same is true of your skin. As collagen production slows due to low levels of growth hormone, the skin loses its support and begins to wrinkle and sag. Also, the ability of your skin to heal and repair itself lessens as HGH levels drop. The loss of collagen and your waning ability to repair damaged skin cells leave your skin looking old and creepy.
HGH therapy revitalizes skin in two ways. It promotes collagen repair and growth as well as the increased rejuvenation of another protein vital to skin health known as elastin. Elastin is largely responsible for your skin’s elasticity and resilience, something else that lessens as your HGH levels decline.
HGH therapy has a similar antiaging benefit on hair. The benefits of HGH therapy for healthier, thicker hair have been well-documented. HGH can be used to restore thinning hair for both men and women. Just it does for your skin, by stimulating increased rejuvenation and health of hair cells, a common benefit of HGH therapy is thicker, more youthful-looking hair.
There is a definitive link between your levels of HGH and your ability to build stronger muscles and burn fat and lose excess weight.
We all know that the older we get, the more muscle tone we lose, the easier it is to put on weight, and the harder it becomes to take it off. This is all because of declining levels of human growth hormone. HGH increases muscle strength by enhancing muscle mass. HGH also ramps up protein synthesis throughout your body, providing the energy required to power muscles and help them to grow bigger and stronger.
HGH also plays an important role in how well your body burns fat because it increases lean body mass and increases metabolism.
HGH can also improve the health of one of the most important muscles in your body – your heart. Over the past several years, there has been increasing evidence that growth hormone therapy can have a positive impact on heart health.
Studies have shown that growth hormone therapy can help you to increase your strength and stamina by helping you to build more lean muscle.
HGH also boosts your body’s metabolism and increases your ability to burn fat. Therefore, HGH therapy can help you to lose weight and lower your risk of obesity. HGH therapy can help you to lose weight by raising your metabolism and improving your body’s ability to burn fat and build lean muscle.
As you lose fat and gain muscle, your metabolism will increase. A faster metabolism helps to burn more body fat, and the more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn, even at rest. In biological terms, calories are fuel for energy. The more calories you can burn, not only will you lose weight, you will have more energy.
Among the many antiaging benefits of HGH therapy are its positive impacts on brain health in terms of emotional states, memory, and cognition. HGH helps repair damaged brain tissue and aids in the ability to produce proteins in the brain used for storing memories. After eight to twelve weeks of taking HGH injections, patients report improvements in mental alertness, motivation, and memory.
In addition to having a positive impact on your ability to focus and concentrate, HGH therapy has also been linked to improving moods and emotional wellbeing. This seems to be due to the relationship that HGH has to the production and release of neurotransmitters – the brain’s so-called “feel good” chemicals – such as dopamine and serotonin.
Since HGH levels drop steadily over time, the various antiaging benefits of HGH can help you at almost any age. Here is a breakdown of the benefits of HGH therapy by age, starting with men and women in their 30s.
People who are over 30 may only just begin to feel the effects of declining HGH. They may feel like they have less energy. They will usually find that they are not able to exercise as long as they used to, or they are seeing fewer benefits from their workouts. The benefits of HGH therapy for patients over 30 include:
Once you are over 40, HGH levels continue to decline, and more of the symptoms of age-related growth hormone deficiency appear. In addition to how HGH helps people over 30, the benefits of HGH for patients over 40 include:
In addition to all of the benefits of HGH mentioned for patients over 30 and over 40, people over 50 receiving HGH therapy can expect to receive all of the remaining antiaging benefits of HGH, including:
There are certain medical conditions that can cause “premature aging” or result in symptoms that look like aging. Most of these are genetic conditions or rare syndromes such as progeria, Werner syndrome, and Downs syndrome. Growth hormone deficiency is not one of these conditions.
However, growth hormone is closely related to aging, and as we have discussed elsewhere in these pages, age-related growth hormone decline could be responsible for many of the conditions we think of as aging or getting older.
The goal of antiaging medicine is to use lifestyle and behavior modification, along with proven therapies like HGH replacement, to help prevent age-related disease, and thereby help you to potentially live longer. We cannot say that HGH definitively “slows aging,” but its antiaging benefits have been clearly demonstrated.
By reducing systemic inflammation, boosting your metabolism, and lowering your risks of developing conditions such as diabetes and heart disease — HGH can certainly improve your chances of living longer.
What we can say without any doubt or hesitation is that HGH will help you to age better. You will have more energy and greater overall health that will allow you to continue to enjoy all the things your love to do. In other words, HGH may or may not add years to your life – but it certainly can add life to your years!
HGH is a vital hormone. HGH is responsible for the health and vitality of every cell and tissue in your body. However, as critical as HGH is to your health and wellness, unfortunately, your levels of HGH decline as you age. Almost all of the things we think of as “signs of aging” — fatigue, weight gain, sexual health issues, memory problems, and more — can all be attributed to this drop in HGH.
Since most if not all of the symptoms of “aging” can be linked to lowered levels of HGH as we age, it was only natural for doctors to wonder if giving older patients HGH could reverse some of these symptoms. The first breakthrough study to illustrate the antiaging effects of HGH was published in 1990 by Dr. Daniel Rudman at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Dr. Rudman’s results were published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine.
Dr. Rudman’s research clearly showed the many antiaging benefits of HGH. The men in the study who had been given HGH (as opposed to placebo) showed increased muscle tone, loss of fat, younger-looking skin, and reported a feeling of “greater overall wellbeing.”
Since the publication of the landmark Rudman study, the antiaging benefits of HGH have been confirmed by extensive clinical use and many other studies.
Now that you know a lot more about the extraordinary antiaging benefits of growth hormone therapy, why not contact us today, and see if you can benefit from the life-changing benefits of HGH replacement therapy.
1. Can HGH Therapy Help You Live Longer?
There have been clinical studies to indicate that HGH could impact longevity. Most recently, The National Institutes of Health have recently provided the Ohio University Edison Biotechnology Institute and Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine with $2.23 million to John Kopchick, Ph.D., to follow up his earlier work that found that growth hormone could extend the lifespan of mice.
Whether HGH can actually help humans live longer is a difficult question to answer, but we do know that it can help you age better and maintain optimal health throughout your senior years, no matter how long or short they may be.
2. Is it Legal to Use HGH for Antiaging?
It is absolutely legal to use HGH for its antiaging benefits – if it has been prescribed for you by your doctor. In order for your doctor to prescribe HGH to you for antiaging, you must first be diagnosed with an age-related growth hormone deficiency. A diagnosis of age-related HGH loss requires specific blood tests.
3. Do I Need a Prescription for HGH Therapy?
Yes. It is totally illegalto purchase or use HGH for antiaging or any other purposes without a doctor's prescription. Furthermore, legitimate growth hormone therapy for adults is only given via injections. Any product claiming to be HGH or contain HGH that you can buy online or anywhere else without a prescription cannot by law contain any actual growth hormone.
4. How Do I Find the Best Antiaging HGH Clinic?
You definitely want to look for a doctor or clinic that specializes in “antiaging medicine.” You want to look for a clinic that is a member of or partners with the A4M and or has practitioners who have fellowships or certifications in antiaging medicine. But beyond that, you want to work with an antiaging clinic that is experienced and has a proven track record of helping people to look and feel younger with HGH and other hormone replacement therapies.
Hormone replacement is as much an art as it is a science. HGH therapy and other hormone therapies are not a "one size fits all" kind of solution. You want to work with a clinic that not only understands the antiaging benefits of HGH for adults but also knows how to tailor them to your particular needs.
