what is Human Growth Hormone (HGH), and is it dangerous?
I wonder if you know what hormones are. They are simply tiny chemical messengers that help our bodies to do different tasks. They are produced by the endocrine glands and then set all over the body to stimulate certain activities. The sudden aggressive sexual behavior of your pet is one of them.
Human Growth Hormone is the most abundant hormone produced by one of the endocrine glands- the pituitary, to be specific. The pituitary gland is located in the center of the brain.
In non scientific terms, Human Growth Hormones are very complex and are made up of 191 simplest units of proteins called Amino Acids.
As the name implies, these hormones are very necessary for physical growth in humans. Their secretions reach the peak in the body during the adolescent period of every human being.
However, that doesn’t mean its secretion ceases after this stage of human development. Because our bodies continue to produce these human growth hormones in short bursts, especially during deep sleep.
You will be shocked to know that these growth hormones play a major role in various processes in the body. Examples are- growth of all tissues, tissue repair, bone strength, brain function, sexual function, enzyme production, etc. The list is almost endless.
That is probably the reason why the Human Growth Hormone is often called the “fountain of youth”. The reason behind this appellation is not far fetched.
Anything that goes on in your body is in some way tied to Human Growth Hormone. And you should know that elevated Human Growth Hormone levels will almost make you feel young again.
The popular young Argentine football prodigy that plays for the club FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi, boosted his height from 4 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 2 inches… thanks to countless Human Growth Hormone injections.
One of the drawbacks of the Human Growth Hormones injections is the cost. FC Barcelona was paying an average of 500 British pounds daily… over a period of 4 years to achieve the miracle of Lionel Messi.
It is an extremely expensive process, no doubt. A year’s supply of Human Growth Hormones injections can cost $20,000… and don’t even think of insurance. It simply won’t cover it because it is not a ‘classified disease’.
If you have $20,000 a year to spend, it doesn’t guarantee you access to the Human Growth Hormones injection because it is mainly available in prescriptions.
At this point, you may be asking- is there any danger associated with the injection of the Human Growth Hormone into the blood stream?
Research by Dr Rudman, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, shows that patients on Human Growth Hormone injections suffered Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Gynecomastia, a term for enlarged breasts.
The doctor believed that with less Human Growth Hormones, the side effects might go away, but tragically he died before he could test his theory. And so… the question still lingers on.
Now there are questions like – what you would do if your teenage child is short, will you allow him suffer the psychological trauma? Or you’d rather go for the “Messi” type of solution?
