What does HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Do in the Body?

Human growth hormone is a substance produced by the pancreas that is responsible for helping regulate growth, metabolism, bone growth, body composition, and heart function among other vital functions. With too little HGH, the body doesn’t develop properly through adolescence, and with diminishing levels as we age, we experience a slowdown in almost every area of life.

What Is Human Growth Hormone?

Put simply, HGH in the body is a messenger, carrying a chemical signal throughout the body to regulate normal functions and ensure healing, growth, and proper use of nutrients. It regulates nearly every aspect of metabolism, promoting healthy healing, bone growth, and regulating body composition. As we age, the levels diminish, resulting in less vitality and motivation.

Growth Hormone Deficiency

HGH contributes to nearly every aspect of bodily function. As we age and it diminishes, the signs of aging set in. It becomes more difficult to remain fit, and energy levels may begin to deplete. HGH deficiency in children and young adults results in stunted growth and other serious health challenges. In adults, the normal diminishing of HGH production in the body results in slower healing, lower metabolism, and less efficient use of nutrients by the body. HGH replacement therapies may help rejuvenate energy levels and vitality.

Human Growth Hormone

There are two types of HGH therapy– synthetic and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Synthetic hormones have been shown to have a variety of side effects making them inefficient and potentially undesirable as an option. Bioidentical hormone replacements are identical to the hormones produced naturally by the body, so they tend to cause less disruption in the body and act like natural hormones, ensuring there’s no rejection by the body.
