Growth hormone (HGH) - What does it do to the human body?


Growth hormone is necessary for the growth and development of a child's growth normal  and bone increases with age from birth to puberty. HGH, produced by the pituitary gland, spurs growth in children and adolescents. It also helps to regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and possibly heart function.
Growth hormone (HGH) -  What does it do to the human body?

HGH hormone doesn't increase the development and distribution of pre-cartilage cells explicitly in artificial culture medium but increases the development of cartilage tissue when inject directly to the animals. Thus, HGH may indirectly influence cartilage and bone. For those who don't produce enough HGH hormone, they grow slower and stature smaller than their old. Hormone HGH excess is often caused by a pituitary tumor secreting GH (usually benign). Too much HGH hormone, children's bones continue to grow long beyond the age of puberty, resulting they is a giant with a height of 7 feet . Produced synthetically, HGH is the active ingredient in a number of prescription drugs and in other products available widely over the Internet.

Synthetic human growth hormone, which must be injected, is available only by prescription. It's approved to treat adults who have true growth hormone deficiency.

Growth hormone deficiency in adults is rare and may be caused by pituitary adenoma or treatment of the adenoma with surgery or radiotherapy. For adults who have a growth hormone deficiency, injections of human growth hormone can:

Increase bone density
Increase muscle mass
Decrease body fat
Increase exercise capacity
Human growth hormone is also approved to treat AIDS- or HIV-related muscle wasting.

What can human growth hormone do for otherwise healthy adults?

Studies of healthy adults taking human growth hormone are limited. Although it appears that human growth hormone injections can increase muscle mass and reduce the amount of body fat in healthy older adults, the increase in muscle doesn't translate into increased strength. It isn't clear if human growth hormone may provide other benefits to healthy adults.
