Human Growth Hormone: Does It Really Affect The Aging Process? (part 1 of 2)

Human growth hormone is a very important hormone with regards to growth and metabolism processes. This hormone dictates the growth of an individual.

According to researchers, HGH is also important in reversing the effects of aging. They claim that HGH supplements return the vibrant feel of being young again, strengthens the bones and increases muscle mass. However, these results are subject to doubt and scrutiny nowadays.

The question is why is HGH associated with the possibility to reverse aging, to slow it or even to stop it? HGH is produced in the anterior part of the pituitary gland and helps in maintaining tissues and organs throughout the life of an individual. The HGH secretion is in its peak during childhood and on the onset of the puberty years. The secretion of HGH during these years is the main reason why individuals grow during this period in their life. However, it is said that once a person reaches middle age, the HGH secretion lessens thus providing less possibility in growth and other processes that the HGH affects.

Human growth hormone products and supplements are identified as anti aging products also. Nonetheless, these products are primarily for adults and children who have growth hormone deficiency and acromegaly or gigantism. It was never written in the prescription that these products are to be taken as anti-aging supplements.
