In the beginning HGH therapy was considered unusual and only used when a person lacked the proper levels of the necessary hormone. HGH is made by the pituitary gland and if it doesn’t produce enough it is usually the result of abnormal genetics, illness or being hurt in some way. This causes issues such as not reaching the proper height in children and many more problems in adults such as loss of muscle, fatigue, unexplained weight gain, sexual disorders, decreased energy levels and lowering in bone density levels.
Once the problems were identified researchers then began looking for ways to make it readily available to restore HGH to normal levels. Although HGH comes from natural sources there was some risk involved so efforts began to find a safe alternative. As a result there is now a synthetic form of HGH that is said to be much safer. Once this was accomplished it became a logical assumption that it could be used for many other people such as athletes promoting increases in strength and muscle mass thus improving their performance levels.
It is also effective for seniors to prevent loss of muscle and strength, decrease in weight gain issues and dry, brittle skin associated with aging.
The downfall of HGH injections is that they are very costly and since they need to be done on a somewhat regular basis they tend to become bothersome over time. Because of this researchers continually search for ways to provide other alternatives to give human growth hormone.
Because of its inconvenience and cost HGH injections are not generally an option for many people. That then leaves the many supplements that have become available. Many of these contain amino acids that help by stimulating the pituitary glands to promote more HGH into the body. Many of these products are made from ingredients that are all natural and at this time no side effects have been reported when used as directed.
The general consensus is that HGH injection therapy is not advisable for everyone and is not approved for issues relating to aging making dietary supplements containing the hormone not only more affordable but much safer. Almost anyone can take these supplements and many manufacturers even provide free samples for anyone wanting the opportunity to try them. The one thing to check for before using any of these products is to make sure they don’t contain any ingredients that you may be allergic to. Other than this there have been no known side effects reported in connection with these supplements.
