HGH or human growth hormone stimulates growth of the body, reproduction of human cells and also regeneration processes in the human body.
This hormone is used to treat different disorders of growth in children and deficiency of HGH in adult people. Some claim that this hormone can increase vitality of the elderly. Although these claims haven’t been confirmed by clinical trials, some doctors may still prescribe it to their patients. HGH is an anabolic agent, and for that property, it is used by various athletes for muscle growth. This hormone is banned from usage in sports. Its metabolites can be detected in blood tests, but not in urine tests. In the United States, HGH can’t be bought without a doctor’s prescription.
HGH Supplements – Myths and Truths
When buying HGH supplements, you should always be aware of potential fraud. Anyone who claims that the product is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) doesn’t know a thing about dietary supplements. Since the 1994, dietary supplements don’t need to be approved by the FDA.
HGH injections can help you to increase muscle mass and lose some unwanted fat from the body. However, there is not a single supplement available on the market that will provide similar results. Simply, these supplements are not HGH injections.
Supplements usually contain some of the products the manufacturers claim they do, but the dosage amounts may not be accurate, and the same thing goes for HGH. Dietary supplements can’t contain significant amount of HGH because it won’t be a supplement but a drug. Even if the supplement contained the highest allowed amount of HGH (for dietary supplements) it still won’t be a pure growth hormone. Additionally, there is no way to take this hormone orally, as a tablet or capsule, because it will break down before it reached your blood. So, it is best to be aware of the companies and dietary products stating that they contain real HGH.
Another thing is important for anyone who wants to use HGH supplements. There are some homeopathic remedies made for HGH deficiency and other growth hormone-related issues. These products are somewhat different, because they are not made to compensate the lack of HGH, but to stimulate the body to increase the production of this hormone.
