Prescription growth hormone has many positive benefits, but how does growth hormone therapy work?
Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is a hormone that is normally produced by your pituitary gland. HGH is primarily responsible for influencing everything responsible for cellular growth. Therefore, growth hormone is instrumental in building strong bones and healthy muscles.
As vital as HGH is to the natural process of growing from a child to an adult, and despite the critical role it plays in fitness, even after adulthood, unfortunately, we begin to lose HGH at a relatively young age. Much like another critical hormone, testosterone, growth hormone levels peak in your teen years and early 20s. Once any man or women hits his or her late 20s to early 30s, he or she can experience a significant drop off in HGH levels. The decline only gets worse from there.
Growth hormone therapy works by providing a way to make up for what time and nature take away.
Why Does Growth Hormone Therapy Work?
Growth hormone therapy works by making up for the drop in HGH production as you age. By keeping your HGH at more youthful levels, growth hormone therapy leads to:
Decreased body fat
Increased lean muscles
Improved memory and cognitive function
More productive workouts and quicker recovery after exercise
Growth hormone therapy works, not because you are pumping someone up to superhuman levels beyond what is normal, but simply because you are returning him or her to his or her particular peak level, before HGH started to decline.
Does Growth Hormone Therapy Always Work?
Like any therapy or medical procedure, the results you can expect from growth hormone therapy do vary from person to person. However, generally speaking, growth hormone therapy works for just about anyone who was found to have a growth hormone deficiency. Since growth hormone therapy is designed to be individualized, and return you to your particular peak performance level, naturally it will work differently for each person taking growth hormone. In other words, if you were basically a healthy, active person, who enjoyed moderate physical activity in your 20s, taking growth hormone in your 50s, will not turn you into an Ironman Triathlete, but, it will probably allow you to get back into doing the things you loved to do when you were younger.
Does Growth Hormone Therapy Work Even Once You Stop?
As we have pointed out above, since growth hormone therapy is prescribed for your unique needs and lifestyle, benefits will vary. Most people receive the full benefits of HGH replacement therapy within about six months.
Once you have been on HGH replacement therapy for three months or more, you will start seeing some drastic improvements in your body, and your physical fitness. Your belly fat will drop, your muscles will grow and tighten, and you will feel more agile in both mind and body.
After you have completed six months of growth hormone therapy, in most people, your body will have undergone almost a complete transformation. You will be stronger. You will be leaner. You will be able to accomplish physical and mental tasks, more like you could when you were younger. Your overall stamina and vitality will improve, as will your outlook on life. These effects, when augmented by a program of diet, fitness and exercise, should last long after you have competed your growth hormone therapy.
The key is — you will be in control. How long your positive effects of growth hormone therapy last, will be in your own hands. Many people will use the increased energy and strength they have received from growth hormone therapy, to become more active and to exercise more. For such people, keeping up with the improvements made by HGH therapy, will certainly last. Others may choose to continue the strides they have made by continuing on a low dose or with intermittent growth hormone injections. Still, there may be others, that despite being given the gift of a “new you” from growth hormone therapy, who will allow themselves to slip back into old habits, which can destroy their results.
How well growth hormone works, is largely up to you!
Does Growth Hormone Therapy Work the Same on Everybody?
Growth hormone therapy works by having it tailored to your individual needs. Growth hormone therapy works for everybody, but that does not mean it works the same way on every body! Growth hormone therapy works best when it is tailored to the unique HGH needs of your body.
How Do I Get the Best Growth Hormone Treatment?
Growth hormone therapy does work. Everybody can achieve some level of positive results from growth hormone therapy. However, not all doctors who provide growth hormone therapy are alike.
As we have been saying, each person, man or woman, seeking growth hormone therapy is different. If you want your growth hormone therapy to work, you want to work with a practitioner who truly understands this, and will tailor your growth hormone therapy to your unique symptoms, goals, and lifestyle.
Beyond that you want to work with someone who is experienced, and has a proven track record in understanding the unique needs of patients with adult onset, or age-related growth hormone deficiency. When seeking a doctor to provide you with growth hormone therapy, consider asking these four questions:
1. Why are you qualified to provide growth hormone therapy?
Does the practitioner have any certifications or specialties in hormone replacement?
How long has he or she been in practice?
2. Do you participate in continuing education, and keep up with the latest breakthroughs in growth hormone treatments?
Of course the answer should be “yes.”
3. What diagnostic tests will you use, and how will you determine the right dosage for my growth hormone replacement?
You want to hear that the physician will use a growth hormone blood test to accurately determine your growth hormone levels, and then along with those results, and your particular medical history, he or she will prescribe the right dosage of growth hormone for your unique needs and particular set of symptoms.
4. What kind of hormones do you use for hormone replacement Therapy?
You want to work with a clinic that only uses bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are exact duplicates on the molecular level, as the hormones produced by your own body. As such, bioidentical hormones are the safest, and most effective hormones to be used in growth hormone therapy, or any kind of hormone replacement therapy.
