Introducing Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
Human growth hormone in its natural form is a substance produced during the early stages of human growth, peaking in the teen years. The pituitary glands in the brain continue to produce this hormone until a man or woman reaches forty years of age, after which the production of the hormone lessens considerably.
Many people who want to maintain the effects of youth for as long as possible--namely with smooth skin, strong bones, and full-headed hair--try to artificially increase levels of growth hormone by taking HGH supplements in pill and/or injection form. However, most supplements claiming to contain HGH are actually imitators, as it is very difficult to access HGH without a doctor's prescription.
Regardless of the substance, any supplement could have major effects on the body. It is important to never take products branded as "HGH Energizer" or under similar names without the direct supervision of a medical professional.
What is all the hype about?
If you think by popping a few HGH Energizer pills you can retain your youth forever, it is time to wake up from your daydreaming. The fact is that while HGH pills may increase your stamina for a while, or help to give you more energy, there are very real adverse side effects to taking these pills without prescription.
Improper usage of HGH supplements can cause the swelling of arms and legs caused by water retention, headaches, abnormal growth of hair, diabetes, hardening of the arteries, and the enlargement of the heart.
Is HGH useful in any way?
While HGH supplements will not and cannot keep you young, they can help combat medical illnesses such as growth hormone deficiency. HGH injections provided by a medical professional are useful in helping the development of children with diseases or conditions, such as kidney failure, that inhibit their natural growth. Human growth hormone is natural and needed in the body. In some cases it can be injected to help treat diseases. Its use as a magic supplement, however, is potentially dangerous and not recommended.
The human body is a wonderful thing, and age is just a part of life. It is important to accept that as you get older, your body will change. When you accept that fact, you can enjoy the changes in your body, and adapt to a slower pace of life. HGH supplements are not the fountain of youth they are described to be by over eager "experts" and blog fanatics who advertise the pill as a way to stay eternally young while pitching for clicks on advertisements they make money off of.
