Human Growth Hormones (HGH) : Pros And Cons You Should Know

May 26, 2008
HGH human growth hormone is the hormone that stimulates the growth of cells in the human body. The pituitary gland, which is located at the base of the brain, secretes the Human Growth Hormones. The pituitary gland is a tiny gland but is also the king of all glands in the body.

HGH human growth hormone is present in animals also. The secretion of this hormone in children and teenagers is high compared to that of adults. As age increases the secretion lessens. HGH hormone consists of proteins in the form of amino acids which help in the growth of children especially the height and the growth of bones. In adults HGH growth hormone makes the person look energetic and youthful and full of life.

HGH human growth hormones must be available in moderate levels in order to be effective and safe for the body. If we have an excessive amount of HGH in our body, we may develop the following sickness - pituitary tumour,gigantism or even type II diabetes. If pituitary tumour occurs, the symptoms include frequent head aches, impaired vision and deficiency in other hormones secreted by the pituitary gland. This kind of tumor usually affects adults aged 40 and above. Some treatments for this tumor are surgery and radiation therapy.

Pituitary gigantism, as you can probably guess, is caused by an excessive secretion of the HGH hormones which results in the body growing very large. Most children in this category are too tall or too fat for their age.Type II Diabetes is the 3rd case. Symptoms of this diabetes type are painful nerves, muscle weakness and insulin resistance.

On the other hand, if HGH is secreted less, then this is considered as a human growth hormone deficiency syndrome. Reduced activity of the pituitiary gland is the main cause in case of adults. HGH defiency in children can affect their growth and subsequently shorter height. Less energy and bone mass and weakness are other symptoms of growth hormone deficiency. The main cause of this HGH human growth hormone deficiency is an injury to the pituitary gland. Other causes include the gene mutations and injury to the hypothalamus(A portion of the brain that acts as a "pacemaker").

HGH Deficiency can be treated by substituting it with identical HGH through injections into the blood stream. This method should not result in any negative side effects as it is substituting HGH with an identical compound. Another method is by consuming HGH releasers oro precursors that act to stimulating the pituitary to produce more of the growth hormones.

HGH injections can sometimes be used even though there is no actual deficiency in the body. HGH growth hormone injection can be used as an anti ageing substance. Injections of HGH can also treat obesity, shortness in height,, chron's disease, multiple sclerosis and in helping body builders and other sportsmen. Human growth hormones also have negative effects such as they help in the growth of cancerous cells in breast, colon and lung cancer. It can aslo increase the risks of diabetes and cause joint and muscle pain. On the bright side, HGH hormones can be used to increase the production of milk in cows and buffalo.

In spite of its possible negative side effects, HGH human growth hormones can burn body parts and produce new cells which will keep a person active and refresh all day. In other words when produced in the right amount by our body, this is something that keeps us fit and beautiful.

One of the best and most natural way to increase the level of HGH in your body is to take HGH releasers or precursors. These are pills or supplements that will enhance the ability of the pituitary gland in producing the human growth hormones needed for youthful energy, looks, etc. There are lots of such pills in the market today so you need to so your own research and find out which ones are the best for you.
