Growth Hormone Benefits, A Detailed View
The Many Benefits of Growth Hormone - Explained
We have listed the benefits of growth hormone in our products page of UPLift/GH, but not explained them in detail. Here's a closer look at each benefit:
Increased Energy and Endurance
The most telltale sign of the benefits of increased HGH is our level of energy and endurance. Take the flight of stairs test. Prior to HGH promoters supplementation, calibrate your endurance by the number of steps you can go the stairs before your legs and lungs betray you. Record that and take your HGH supplementation before a restful night's sleep. Then go back to the stairs and have another go. This time, you will be surprised by how much your legs and lungs can bring you.
How you may ask? Our lungs contain IGF-1 receptors (IGF-1R) that lock-in to IGF-1 hormones circulating in our blood as a result of increased plasma HGH levels. When this binding happens, our lung's capacity to regulate oxygen is increased, thus making it more efficient in the respiration of oxygen needed for energy expenditure.
Improved Immune System
Our immune system is one of the beneficiaries of increased HGH, resetting it as if it was in our adolescent years when our own body's production of HGH is at its highest. This can be attributed to the growth hormone's ability to influence the body to regenerate our cells. White blood cells, which help fight disease, are increased and the production of red blood cells is enhanced. Also, macrophages needed to defend against bacteria are boosted. New antibodies are created and the production of interleukin 2 and T-cells is elevated. This means our body's defenses against colds, flus, infections, and other diseases that you frequently encounter in crowded places or at the workplace is increased, protecting your body from being invaded by these maladies.
Lean Muscle Growth
One of the most long-lasting effects of growth hormone is its capability to sculpt your body into works of art. Not the Van Gogh type, but the likes of Michaelangelo's David, since GH actually tones your muscles and burns down the fat that are deposited all over our body. With weight training, your GH will skyrocket to the point where you gain weight as a result of lean muscle mass growth. This is because GH influences protein synthesis which is needed to increase muscle mass. And with muscle gain, fat reserves is easily dissolved because even at rest, our bodies burn fat through our muscle reserves.
Muscle growth comes in two forms: hypertropy which is an increase in the size of muscle fibers, and hyperplasia which is an increase in the number of muscle fibers. This process causes splitting of muscle fibers, resulting eventually in a greater number of fibers the same size as the originals. It is this second form that GH influences growth in lean muscle tissues.
Greater Fat Loss
What is greater than leaner muscles? How about leaner muscles and greater fat loss? Consider the two independent studies:
In a double blind, placebo controlled crossover study of overweight women, HGH therapy caused an average loss of more than 4.6 pounds of body fat, most of this in the abdomen.
In two double blind, placebo controlled studies by David Clemmons, M.D., at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, HGH combined with dieting, accelerated weight loss. All of the people participating in the study were between 35 to 60% over their ideal body weight. In the studies, which were either for six or eleven weeks, HGH combined with diet caused a 25% acceleration in the rate of fat loss above and beyond the effects of diet alone. In the 11 week period, the HGH treated subjects lost 30 to 32 pounds, compared with 20 to 25 pounds in the controls. And while the controls lost muscle along with fat, the treated (HGH) group held on to their body tone."
Burning fat is just the tip of the iceburg. Once GH is increased, our body's ability to burn calories is also increased, providing the energy we need to sustain our daily tasks. The source of fuel for burning the calories is taken all over our body - our thighs, love handles, stubborn belly fat (abdomen), arms, and others. As mentioned in the previous point, it really does tone your body to look like a work of art.
Mood and Sleep Patterns
In 1996 a team of Swedish scientists discovered why HGH replacement makes so many people feel good. They found it acts on the brain just like an antidepressant, raising the level of the neurotransmitter B-endorphin, which has been called the brain's opiate. HGH also lowers the level of dopamine, which is associated with feelings of agitation. Other reports indicate that increased levels of HGH reduce stress, improve focus and concentration, and build self-esteem and self-confidence. A 1998 report showed that depressed men have a marked decrease in HGH secretion during the first three hours of sleep as opposed to non depressed controls. Indeed, higher levels of HGH induced a more restful and sounder sleep.
Three different studies in Sweden, Denmark, and England reported that HGH replacement therapy had dramatic, positive effects on patients suffering from low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
Effects on Skin and Hair
Wrinkles and excess facial fat are what makes a us look old. GH influences youthful looking skin through skin thickening. You will notice that contours are more prominent and youthful looking, hydration and elasticity sets in. In some documented cases, burned skin is repaired and ulcerated wounds close. Fine lines fade and deep, set in wrinkles become less noticeable all due to cell rejuvenation.
Our hair will also begin to grow in its natural luster, growing thicker and stronger. One study has attributed new hair growth to 38% of its clinical participants to HGH supplementation.
In the world renowned study by Dr. Daniel Rudman, elderly men had an increase of skin thickness of 7.1% on average. A further self-evaluation of 202 people taking HGH for six months showed that two thirds reported improvement in skin texture, skin thickness, and skin elasticity. Of this same group, 61% observed fewer wrinkles and 38% reported new hair growth.
Enhanced Sex Drive
For those who have unnatural deficiency of their growth hormone levels, frequent problems arise relating to lack of sexual desires of any kind. GH-deficient males have trouble producing and maintaining erections and GH-deficient females have extra trouble getting in the mood for sexual activity. Having an orgasm is often impossible for individuals with severe deficiencies.
Sex drive with HGH supplementation benefits both men and women. With increased GH, the desire to copulate is increased, and in general the quality of orgasm is enhanced as well. For women, vaginal dryness disappears, and the ability to perform multiple Orgasms becomes possible again.
Some of you for this reason alone is good enough to take in HGH supplements.
Improved Brain Functions
No, GH will not increase your IQ instantly, but in an indirect manner.
Neurons are pathways in our brain where signals pass through as we process information. Without it, or the levels of neurons decreased, our brains will not function properly. As we age, neurons can become damaged and slow down. Neurons are a permanent fixture and though we cannot grow new neurons, thanks to HGH, we can rejuvenate and repair the ones we have. The effects of which benefits our short-term and long-term memories, learning, and intelligence.
Greater Bone Density
Having sturdy and dense bone muscles is a characteristic that is desirable to have. Consider that our muscles are wrapped around our bones, supporting our movements and posture. Calcium supplementation alone is not sufficient, as it requires vitamin D in order for it be absorbed by our bodies. And calcium may only recover the calcium content of our bones. However it does not change its structure to make it become more dense.
A Swedish study of 44 men and women between the ages of 23 and 66 who were severely deficient in HGH, found that two years of HGH treatment caused significant increases in the density of the bones that form the hip joint and the vertebrae of the lower spine. There were increases in calcium, osteocalcin, and two types of collagen, which are markers of bone formation. The researchers estimate that they have reduced the possibility of fracture so that it now equals that of normal healthy controls.
Another study showed Growth Hormone treatment helps to build bone density and reduces the risk of fractures in pre- and post-menopausal women, as well as those with deficient growth hormone levels.
Now that we have examined each benefit thoroughly, I'm sure it will lead you to ask, "Where have you been all my life?"
