Anti-Aging HGH Treatment - Fact Or Fiction?

Aug 17, 2007
The application of an anti-aging HGH treatment to combat, and in some instances actually halt the aging process, may sound like science fiction to many but the reality is, it may not be too far into the future when this type of product could be available to "Mr. And Mrs. Joe Citizen."

HGH stands for human growth hormone and is utilised by the body to promote development. Essentially, HGH is linked to growth and the advancing changes that allow a child to grow into adulthood. It peaks in the body during a persons teen years however, it gradually starts to decline from then on.

SO what about the theory of just replacing what has been lost in persons of an older age? As an anti-aging product and elixir of life, it's benefits have been known for a long time especially in the sports arena to improve performance. What has also been noticed is a correlation between the use of HGH and what seems to have been somewhat of a rejuvenation in skin appearance.

So can human growth hormone be used in the area of anti-aging? Recently, a Harley Street plastic surgeon declared that he has been defying the onset of aging by experimenting on himself and his wife with a course of human growth hormone. Many studies have shown that it has the ability to produce a more youthful effect but at what cost. The product has reportedly been used for years by the "in crowd" of the beauty industry but to the ordinary layman the question of at what cost continues to be asked.

Are there side effects to consider? Particularly if used in large doses then yes, side effects are associated with HGH. The problem with it is that it is protein-based and can only be injected. There is plenty of skepticism surrounding those products claiming to be either taken orally or inhaled. A search online can return millions of results concerning HGH and associated products but be very wary. Side effects have been known to occur when the product hasn't been taken in accordance with the proper directions. What these side effects are have been varied but heart failure is high on the list. Abuse of HGH by self indulgents is always a concern however, it has been shown in studies that if used in regulated amounts then yes, the benefits can be quite startling.

So where are we headed with HGH? Is it the "fountain of youth" many of us have been craving for so long. Is it the cure for some of the most ravaging diseases known to man. Or is it just a fad that will pass with time? You have to admit that there is definitely something about it that excites many people in the right areas. But how long before we see some real breakthroughs being made and be able to order it over the counter? One thing is for certain, there is a lot of research being performed on human growth hormone and the knowledge base is growing at a rapid rate.
