Human Growth Hormone Treatment

Human Growth Hormone Treatment

What is HGH Peptide Therapy?

HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Peptide Therapy, also known as Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide Therapy or Growth Hormone Stimulating Peptide Therapy, is a treatment regimen that involves administering peptides, such as Sermorelin and Ibutamoren to encourage your body’s production of human growth hormone naturally. HGH peptides function by interacting with the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to naturally increase growth hormone levels in the body when the hormone is no longer being adequately produced by the body naturally due to factors such as aging. HGH peptide therapy is usually administered through subcutaneous injections for optimal results. HGH peptide therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies such as testosterone replacement therapy to enhance and increase your results.

What are Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Peptides?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids which join together to form proteins. They are the building blocks of every protein in our bodies. Peptides act as bioregulators and instruct cells and molecules in the body on what functions to perform. Human growth hormone, or simply growth hormone, is a peptide hormone secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland and secreted into the bloodstream. HGH is known as the repair hormone and plays a crucial role in the maintenance of a youthful appearance and healthy bodily functions. It also keeps you in a better mood, normalizes weight by increasing muscle mass and reducing fat, gives you more energy, and helps you to think clearly. It governs our height, bone length, and muscle growth, among many other functions. Though our bodies naturally make growth hormone peptides, the production of peptides can differ considerably by individual and as we age, the quality and number of peptides within the body may decrease. HGH peptides are synthetic compounds designed to counter this effect and stimulate your body’s production of human growth hormone naturally to maintain an optimal HGH level in the body.

Indications for HGH Peptide Therapy

HGH peptide therapy is usually recommended as a treatment of choice in individuals who are noted to have a serious decline in HGH levels. Low production of human growth hormone or growth hormone deficiency can have many negative effects on your quality of life. This is where growth hormone-stimulating peptide therapy helps. Symptoms of HGH deficiency include:

  • Low energy and vitality
  • Poor mood and self-control
  • Loss of skin elasticity and wrinkles
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Reduced overall strength and endurance
  • Reduced cognitive function
  • Higher body fat concentration in the waist
  • Hair loss
  • Poor sleep
  • Problems with sexual function
  • Reduced bone density and susceptibility to fractures

Preparation for HGH Peptide Therapy

In general, a consultation will be held with you prior to beginning HGH peptide therapy. This enables your doctor to carefully review your concerns, medical history, and medications you are taking to tailor an HGH peptide therapy regimen specific to you. You should inform your physician if you are pregnant, might be pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to conceive as peptide therapy may be contraindicated in such patients. In addition, children and individuals with certain medical conditions such as melanoma history, may not be suitable candidates for peptide therapy. Consultation with a physician is strongly recommended before starting any peptide therapy to determine if it is safe and appropriate for you. The practitioner will determine the specific prescription, the frequency, and the dose during your consultation after reviewing your symptoms, medical history, and lab blood work results.

Administration of HGH Peptide Therapy

HGH peptides are generally considered safe when used responsibly and under medical supervision. It is typically administered in an injection form. You will be given a prescription of a multi-dose, injectable vial, containing growth hormone stimulating peptides such as Ipamorelin or Sermorelin or other appropriate stimulating prescription. The vial contents are to be combined with bacteriostatic water to form the solution required for injections per instructions given by the pharmacy and your medical practitioner. Most growth hormone stimulation peptide therapy regimens involve the patient self-administering a dose into their body fat just under the skin with a tiny needle. Usually, you will start with more frequent doses at the beginning of therapy (known as a loading period), then taper off as your HGH levels become optimal over time. When the medication is administered, it goes to the pituitary gland and binds to the appropriate receptors, activating the pituitary gland to make considerable amounts of human growth hormone than you have been making when your growth hormone is deficient. Improved HGH production typically results in you attaining the mental, emotional, and physical health of a more youthful individual with higher HGH levels.

Post-Administration Results

Results differ from individual to individual and may not be predictable or consistent among individuals. Some people feel an almost immediate improvement in the way they feel following an HGH peptide therapy session. For many others, it may take at least a few weeks to notice the desired results. Usually, you should feel improved physiological effects throughout the body within a few weeks. Complete benefits such as decreased fat and increased muscle mass may be observed between 3 to 6 months following the beginning of treatment.
