Human Growth Hormone:
The human growth hormone is made up of 191 amino acids, and its production within our body peaks when we are young. It affects almost all cells and tissues of in the body and is considered to be a master hormone that controls many organ and bodily functions. Its release and circulation stimulates the liver to manufacture IGF-1.
With age, circulating levels of IGF-1 decline due to the inability of the pituitary gland to release the human growth hormone. A hormone called somatostatin inhibits its release. At age 21, the normal level of circulating HGH is about 10 milligrams per deciliter of blood, while at age 61 it is 2 milligrams per deciliter, a decrease of 80%!
IGF-1 supports the reduction of fat and encourages the movement of cholesterol in a desired direction.* It also supports cardiac cells and helps to improve cardiac function.* By supplying amino acids that are essential in the production of balance human growth hormone levels, HGH supports cardiovascular health.*
IGF-1 functions to support the burning of fat by making it available as fuel.* Lipolysis is triggered when the growth hormone binds to fat cell receptors where it can cause a series of enzymatic reactions in the cell to break down fat.* Providing amino acids that aid in the release of growth hormones, HGH supports weight management, improved metabolism and lean muscle mass.*
IGF-1 is the active, growth stimulating metabolite associated with the beneficial effects of human growth hormone therapy. Once the human growth hormone is released from the pituitary glands, it circulates to the liver where it is converted to IGF-1, which then stimulates growth in a variety of tissues. The beneficial effects of elevated IGF-1 levels are well documented and are associated with the following:
• Decreased body fat content*
• Enhanced lean body mass*
• Healthy cholesterol levels*
• Efficient cardiac output*
• Increased skin elasticity*
• Improved memory*
• Increased libido*
• Increased energy and sense of well-being*
As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop (15.5 g) per day in 8 oz water and take on an empty stomach at bedtime or right after strenuous exercise, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
