The Effects of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) on the Body
Studies on HGH have revealed that it might be the fountain of youth the world has been searching for. Meanwhile, the hormone continues to provide the edge to the best of world athletes. Research has revealed that the appropriate use of peptides induces the pituitary gland to secrete more of the human growth hormone. However, the use of such peptides has not been recommended for human use yet. Enhanced HGH levels improve performance and delay the onset of aging.
What Is HGH?
Human growth hormone, also known as HGH or Somatotropin, is a peptide hormone. It consists of a chain of 191 amino acids produced naturally in the human body and promotes cellular regeneration, reproduction, and growth. HGH levels decrease in the body with age, thereby causing many older men to seek therapy that restores the benefits of HGH.
What Does HGH Do Inside The Human Body?
HGH primarily functions as an anabolic hormone. It binds to cognate receptors on the cellular surface and promotes the building of body tissues. A quality peptide which either stimulates HGH production or mimics the hormone can usher in a range of physiological benefits.
Regulation of body weight – Frag 176-191, comprising of the last 25 peptides in the HGH chain, promotes fat breakdown and suppression of new fat synthesis. Meanwhile, CJC 1295 w/o DAC is a popular compound that promotes improved HGH production.
Encourages Better Sleep – DSIP, Epitalon, and Selank improves sleep cycle and pattern by controlling both the anxiety that can lead to insomnia and the imbalances in body chemistry due to unstable sleep schedules (such as those experienced by shift workers).
Improves Mood – Aside from anxiety, proper HGH levels help provide the chemical homeostasis in our body. This natural hormone cycle influences our brains, helps to improve temperament and provides a positive, energized outlook.
PT-141, through the HGH axis, addresses issues of low libido for many. Studies reveal that it can help treat erectile dysfunction, trigger a higher libido in men and women, and possibly even act as an aphrodisiac.
Would Your Research Realize The Benefits Of HGH?
The physiological benefits of HGH are well established. Hence studies of HGH demand researchers to use quality peptides to ensure the output is of acceptable standards.
We have enlisted some of the diverse spectra of physiological benefits which HGH has on our bodies:
1. Enhances Muscle Strength
2. Promotes Healing
3. Promotes the regeneration of bone and muscle tissue
4. Aids in Control Of Weight And Body Fat
5. Reduces Risk of Heart Disease
6. Improves Fat Reduction
7. Muscle Gain
8. Faster Recovery Times
9. Brings about a better Immune System Function
10. Improves bone mineralization and thus establishes a higher bone density
11. Improved Cellular Repair for Skin and Organs
12. Stimulates rapid protein synthesis
HGH administration releases the hormone from its natural biological control. This alters the hormone cycle more drastically, thereby affecting the response of the body tissues to the peptide. This is referred to as square-wave physiology as opposed to natural crest and trough response to the hormone. High HGH also suppresses feedback mechanisms and disrupts the natural 24-hour pattern of the peptide.
Hence, the use of peptides to stimulate the release of HGH is considered to be a safe alternative. The use of Sermorelin acetate overcomes these challenges as physiological feedback mechanisms of HGH secretion regulate it. The peptide only mediates an increase in the hormone set-point. HGH and many other hormones exhibit the phenomenon of tachyphylaxis in which excess ligand inhibits the cognate receptors in the body over the course of time and eventually becomes less effective. Thus, the body requires to be put on a drug holiday to overcome tachyphylaxis, and the peptide benefits are transiently lost. Sermorelin does not get influenced by tachyphylaxis. Rather, the use of Sermorelin improves the physiological concentration of cognate receptors through an unknown mechanism.
HGH thus plays a gamut of diverse roles in the human body, from bone and muscle development, general growth, fat metabolism, improvement of sleep, and cognitive power to the enhancement of libido. There is a decrease in HGH levels in the body with age. This often causes a change in the general metabolism of the body. Hence, researchers look for different ways to enhance the hormone levels in the body, which prolongs the hormone’s physiological benefits and maintains the natural hormone cycle in the body.
