A study, published in the journal Stroke, suggests less fatigue and better recovery of cognitive abilities, such as learning and memory, in patients with HGH treatment after a stroke.
HGH has the potential to transform the lives of those who survive a stroke.
Treatment and rehabilitation after a stroke can be challenging for both the patients, and their families. Recovery typically means a long and difficult process to repair the patient’s memory, ability to concentrate, speech function and more. Anxiety, worry, and severe fatigue are common symptoms among those who have survived a stroke.
The results of the study, conducted in collaboration between the universities of Gothenburg and Newcastle, showed a link between levels of HGH and improved cognition after a stroke.
Previous studies have also demonstrated that human growth hormone generally has positive effects on cognition after brain damage. Treatment with growth hormone after a stroke seems to have a positive effect on brain function.
Researchers analyzed a number of growth factors and biomarkers in the injured area of the brain and found patients treated with human growth hormone showed greater improvements in cognition following a stroke when compared to controls. Treatment with human growth hormone may facilitate rehabilitation and improve a patient’s quality of life after suffering cerebrovascular damage.
Human growth hormone was also found to promote brain plasticity, meaning it helped the brain form new connections between brain cells. More research will need to be conducted to truly understand why HGH helps improve brain cognition following a stroke, but it may be due to the positive impact HGH has on brain plasticity.
About Human Growth Hormone
Growth hormone (GH) is a small protein that is made by the pituitary gland and secreted into the bloodstream. GH production is controlled by a complex set of hormones produced in the hypothalamus of the brain and in the intestinal tract and pancreas.
HGH increases during childhood, peaks during puberty, and declines from middle age onward.
Human Growth Hormone Benefits
HGH is available as a prescription drug that is administered by injection. Benefits of HGH include; increased bone density and protection from fractures, increased muscle mass, improved exercise capacity and energy, and a reduced risk of heart disease
In the brain, HGH led to higher levels of bio-markers that reflected the formation of new blood vessels, reduced loss of brain tissue and repaired of nerve damage.
