Human growth hormone (HGH) is a naturally occurring hormone that is synthesized in the pituitary gland. It plays a vital role in cell regeneration, maintaining healthy tissue in muscle, the brain and vital organs. Human growth hormone supplementation has been used in hormone replacement protocols for a number of years to augment the long term fight against the diseases of aging and help maximize physical performance in the aging athlete.

Research to support these beneficial properties has dramatically increased in recent years. The benefits of human growth hormone are numerous, but there may be a better, safer, cheaper way to augment HGH levels.
The Benefits of Human Growth Hormone Augmentation
The benefits of HGH augmentation include:
- Improvement in body composition; reduced fat mass and increased lean muscle
- Decreased risk of osteoporosis
- Increased strength
- Improved protein synthesis
- Improvement in skin collagen and thickness
- Improved exercise performance
- Improvement in immune function
- Improved libido and sexual performance
- Improved heart function
- Better mood and cognitive function
- Better sleep
Just to name a few!
Improving the Body’s Natural Production of HGH
By improving the body’s natural production of HGH there is less potential of depleting your body’s store of HGH. Using the peptides also demonstrates less need for more drug to achieve the same effect over time.
There are now a number of growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) and growth hormone releasing hormones (GHRH) that can boost your own growth hormone levels that are safer and with fewer side effects than synthetic HGH. The combined use of a GHRP and GHRH can increase your HGH production and boost HGH secretion.
By improving the body’s natural production of HGH there is less potential of depleting your body’s store of HGH if you miss a dose. The use of these peptides also demonstrates less tachyphylaxis, or the need for more drug to achieve the same effect over time.
More Natural, Safer, Less Expensive Alternative for HGH Supplementation
I am pleased that there is now a more natural, safer, less expensive alternative for HGH supplementation.Although the safety profile with the synthetic HGH products is very good, there are still potential risks and side effects. These include carpal tunnel syndrome, skin thickening, hyperlipidemia and hyperglycemia. GHRP and GHRH have fewer and less severe side effects which can include, hyperactivity, dizziness, flushing, sleeplessness and headache.
Both HGH and the GHRP/GHRH combination can achieve similar benefits, with one striking difference- cost. Growth hormone improving peptides cost approximately one third to one half as much as synthetic HGH. These peptides are used in a similar dosing regimen to synthetic HGH, which is a daily sub-cutaneous injection.
Improving HGH levels can add yet another positive piece to a balanced hormone program. I am seeing IGF-1 level improvement that is as good or better than with synthetic HGH.
