Human Growth Hormones for Sale
What is Human Growth Hormone?
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the pituitary gland. HGH helps the body to make new cells, regenerate, heal and grow. HGH helps muscles grow, builds strong bones, and reduces fat. Some say it even removes wrinkles and sagging skin, but that depends on the individual. The recombinant form of human growth hormone made in the laboratory is called somatropin. Somatropin is 100% bioidentical to the naturally occurring growth hormone our pituitary gland secretes.
Human Growth Hormone Gets Demonized
Growth hormone use among athletes is believed to start in the early 1980s. Initially, traditional test methods did not detect its use among professional athletes. This was one reason it became so popular for performance enhancement. It wasn’t until the early 2000s before technology advanced to such a level as to detect it with blood testing. Blood testing can now distinguish between natural and synthetic (factory made) somatropin hGH.
It wasn’t long after athletes began getting tested for performance enhancing drugs, that major media began sensationalizing reports. Major media outlets began attacking Anti-Aging Medicine, associating this segment of the medical industry to athletes doping for performance enhancement. It should be noted, anti-aging hormone replacement therapies only replace what’s missing. That is, sufficient amounts of these hormones to raise normal levels to upper physiological (optimal) normal levels. On the other hand, athletes abusing hormones for performance enhancement use much higher doses of hormones, which is significantly different.
In 1990, Dr. Daniel Rudman, M.D., along with his colleagues at the Medical College of Wisconsin published a landmark study in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study details the first clinical trial of HGH over a 6 month period on 12 participants. Their ages were from 61 to 81. Those getting growth hormone injections gained an average of 8.8% muscle while loosing 14% body fat. This was without diet and exercise. Additionally, their skin became thicker and firmer and all showed an increase in bone density.
Legal Status of Growth Hormone
Human growth hormone is not controlled under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which is good, since it is only a naturally occurring substance produced inside our bodies. However, as part of the Anabolic Steroids Control Act passed in 1990, the distribution and possession, with the intent to distribute hGH, for any use, other than the treatment of a disease or recognized medical condition, where such use has been authorized by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and pursuant to the order of a physicians, was criminalized as a 5 year felony under penalties in the Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act of the FDA.
Currently the secretary of health and human services has indicated hGH for adults for the following items in the USA:
- Wasting syndrome for AIDS
- Short bowel syndrome
- Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency Syndrome (AGHD)
We can prescribe hGH replacement therapy at our international treatment centers for anti-aging “quality of life” (QoL) purposes. Prescriptions made by our physicians are legally valid in any modern country for at least 90-days and possibly longer. Inquire with us for more details.
Although many groups and agencies interpret that AGHD is NOT simply the decline of hGH with age, no one really knows the true definition of adult growth hormone deficiency. This is arguably a major issue for both doctors and patients. For those doctors treating patients in the US, there is fear for many. Supposedly these same groups and agencies attempt to claim that a growth hormone stimulation test (peak GH <0.5 ng/L), is required. However, a single blood test alone is not appropriate for a clinical diagnosis to AGHD. Doctors must establish a sound physician-patient relationship which includes various forms of blood testing, a detailed medical history, and a lengthy consultation session to understand more thoroughly each patient’s individual symptoms, issues and quality of life.
Health Risks Associated with Aging
Due to poor diet and the modern lifestyle, the population as a hole is more sick than heaver. Heart disease kills approximately 550,000 (or more) people every year. Cancers cause almost the same number of deaths each year. The two diseases combined represent almost 1 Million lives lost each year. Most of these diseases can be avoided. We know this from global epidemiological studies. In societies that eat a standard American diet, these problems persists. In societies that don’t, these problems don’t exist either. Ironically, human growth hormone replacement offers some benefits which directly reduce many of the risk factors associated with our two leading causes of death.
What is telling about the modern health risks we all face, is that more than ever before our hormones are not functioning and secreting as well as they once did. This is most likely due to three critical factors:
- Modern diet and our heavy processed food consumption
- Trace amounts of environmental toxins we ingest every day in our food supply, the air we breath and the water we drink
- Increased levels of stress
We know from male studies that testosterone production is down when compared to earlier generations. Also, sperm count is down in males as well. All these factors are signaling very serious metabolic issues. Again, hGH has offered some benefit in risk factors associated with these declines. These declines are not simply part of aging. These declines are accelerated due to living the modern lifestyle for 30, 40, and 50 years or more.
