HGH - Human Growth Hormone

HGH / Human Growth Hormone

HGH Therapy Benefits
Think if you were able to maintain the same level of HGH production from your youth through your adult life. What if you were able to take control of the aging process and drastically slow down, even reverse the symptoms associated with aging?
Human growth hormone therapy will provide dramatic changes in general health and overall body composition. More and more doctors and patients are turning to HGH therapy not only to improve their current health and physical condition but also in the form of preventative medicine. Although HGH therapy is extremely effective at reducing and reversing one's current symptoms of aging, it is also very effective in preventing them.
• Increase Lean Muscle Mass and Decrease Levels of Body Fat
One of the biggest things people with low human growth hormone levels find is that they gain body fat easily, especially around the midsection. With HGH therapy, patients find they lose weight, lose body fat and increase lean muscle mass. The waist starts to decrease in size, body fat percentage begins to fall and lean muscle mass starts to increase all over the body.
• Eliminate Depression and Anxiety
For those suffering from low HGH levels, feelings of depression and anxiety can take over. You begin feeling like an entirely different person than what you once did. Instead of feeling invigorated and excited to do all of the things you once loved, you begin to dread them. Staying in bed seems like a more enjoyable option than going out into the world. HGH therapy will help you take control of your emotions and bring back joy and a sense of fulfillment in your life.
• Become More Social

Along with the feelings of depression, people begin to feel isolated and withdraw from interacting with others. Long gone become the days of enjoying gatherings and time with loved ones. With HGH therapy, you have the power to regain your lost time and enjoy being around others and doing things together.
• Restore Sexual Interest
 Increase Sex Drive and Sexual Performance
Countless individuals find they begin losing interest in sex and experience a decrease in sexual function as their HGH levels decline. Instead of feeling attracted to their partner, they begin feeling depressed and no longer attractive. They start to abstain from sexual activity because the desire is no longer there. HGH therapy works to restore the intimate feelings that have been lost for so long. Your attraction to your partner is restored and you are able to form a bond with each other once again.
• Improve Quality of Sleep and Sleeping Patterns
If you are tired of going through the night after night of restless sleep, low HGH levels might be to blame. By partaking in HGH therapy, you will find that you can enjoy a deeper and more restful sleep. You will awaken in the morning feeling rested and rejuvenated. Instead of feeling run down and out of sorts, HGH therapy will able you to make it through the day without feeling like you need to take a nap in the middle of the day.
• Improve Memory and Cognitive Function
Aging and memory loss go hand in hand. How many times have you heard individuals talk about struggling to remember things that used to come easy to them? Growing older doesn’t mean you have to struggle remembering simple daily tasks or where you left those sets of keys. HGH therapy means an increase in memory and an overall sense of wellness.
• Increase Energy Levels
Even though it might be common to suffer from fatigue every once in a while, you shouldn’t feel like all you want to do is sleep every day away. If you find you are spending more of your time in bed than you are out enjoying the things going on in the world around you, it might be time to do something about it. Being run down and needing to rest and relax is one thing, but being overcome with fatigue is another entirely. HGH therapy will help restore your energy levels and help overcome the fatigue and sleepiness of low hormone levels.
• Rebuild Strength and Stamina

Many people, feel run down and weak. As a result, they are unable to exercise or engage in otherwise healthy activities to promote health and well-being. Once they begin using HGH therapy, stamina, strength, and energy will increase. Instead of running from exercise, they begin to embrace it without having to worry about taking a rest every couple of minutes.

Human growth hormone (often abbreviated HGH or hGH, or simply GH for growth hormone) is an important part of the body’s endocrine system. It is especially active in the growing child’s maturation (although it is not the only physiological factor that makes kids get taller and grow). HGH is released by the brain into the bloodstream during sleep, and its release is part of the repair and restoration function of sleep.

The hormone is a complex protein produced by the pituitary gland in the brain, and in addition to promoting growth in childhood, it helps maintain healthy body tissue even during adulthood. The pituitary gland releases growth hormone non-continuously the release looks like a pulse.

The human growth hormone promotes a healthy metabolism, enhances your physical performance, and may even help you live longer.

When is the human growth hormone released during sleep?

Both sleep and exercise induce the release of human growth hormones. Experts estimate that as much as 75 percent of the human growth hormone is released during sleep.

In normal healthy people, the major period of HGH release occurs during the first period of Stage 3 sleep stage during the night, about an hour after you first fall asleep. Stage 3, also known as deep sleep or slow-wave sleep, accounts for about one-quarter of your sleep each night. Deep sleep is the most restorative in all stages of sleep. During this stage of sleep, HGH is released and works to restore and rebuild your body and muscles from the stresses of the day.

How does sleep affect the production of the human growth hormone?

A person cycles through the stages of sleep four to five times each night. HGH is released during the first few times you experience stage 3 sleep. Sleep deprivation has a big impact on your sleep cycles, and consequently impacts how much, if any, of your HGH gets released during your initial cycles of stage 3 sleep.

If a person stays up all night when he or she normally sleeps, there is no surge in growth hormone release. After a period of sleep deprivation, there is an extra hormone released when sleep is resumed, and the pattern departs from the normal pulse during slow-wave sleep.

Scientists did an experiment where they hid people away from daylight and other environmental cues that act as circadian hooks. The subjects were allowed to set their own sleep schedule which ended up deviating from the typical 24-hour cycle. This experiment has been done many times, but in this case, the scientists measured the blood levels of growth hormone and followed when the pituitary gland released the hormone. They found the peak levels of hormone released during sleep decreased significantly. The first slow-wave sleep (SWS) period of the night was shorter and the first REM period happened sooner.
