In both men and women, age-related declines in testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) are associated with an increase in body fat and a decrease in lean muscle mass and bone mineral density. When taken together, testosterone and HGH therapy can increase lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, improve bone-mineral density and improve a woman’s overall quality of life.
Hormone fluctuations are natural and occur throughout our lives. Events that impact female hormone production include; puberty, perimenopause, menopause, genetics, environmental toxins, stress, aging, sleep, exercise and nutrition.
Most women are aware of bio-identical hormone replacement, but two hormones that are commonly overlooked and undervalued for women are; growth hormone and testosterone. For many years, the research has shown testosterone and HGH supplements have a number of beneficial effects for women.
Testosterone plays a vital role in bone strength, brain function and the overall development of lean muscle mass and strength. It also helps contribute to a general sense of well-being, higher energy levels and increased sex drive.
Growth Hormone (HGH) helps to regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and heart function. The benefits of HGH therapy include: increased energy levels, improved exercise performance, increased lean muscle mass, hair growth and stronger bones.
Human growth hormone (HGH), also known as somatotropin, is a stress hormone produced by the pituitary gland to stimulate cell regeneration, growth and maintenance. It is critical to maintaining bones, muscles, organs, tissue and heart function. Growth hormone raises the concentration of glucose and free fatty acids and stimulates the production of IGF-1, which stimulates growth in a variety of tissues including bone.
HGH and testosterone levels begin to decline in a woman’s 20’s and early 30’s and continue to decline over a woman’s lifetime.
Symptoms of low testosterone:
- Low sex drive
- Low sexual satisfaction
- Fatigue or lethargy
- Muscle weakness
Symptoms of low HGH include:
- Decrease in muscle mass
- Increase in body fat
- Decrease in bone density (osteoporosis)
- Cognitive impairment
- Hair loss
- Dry skin
- Increased triglycerides
- Insulin resistance
- Impaired immune system
Years of Research Shows HGH Increases Strength and Enhances Performance
Improved Body Composition
In 2015, a study published in the “Journal of multidisciplinary healthcare” assessed 91 men and 97 women over three years and found women who took both testosterone and GH had significantly greater increases in lean mass, reductions in fat mass, improvements in bone mass density, and greater improvements in quality of life and mood. The researchers found treatment with testosterone and HGH was associated with favorable effects and was safe and well tolerated by women across a wide range of ages.
A 2003 study, published in the “Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism” showed HGH in older women improved hand and leg strength, increased lean body mass and decreased total body fat.
A study published in 2004, in the “Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism” showed injections of HGH reduced both total cholesterol and LDL levels and was well-tolerated.
The Journal “Metabolism” published a study in 2010 and results showed patients receiving injections of growth hormone had lower body fat and lower blood sugar when compared to the group not receiving growth hormone injections.
The Benefits of HGH and Testosterone Include:
- Increased sexual desire
- Improved skin elasticity
- Increased muscle strength
- Weight loss and decreased risk of obesity
- Improved cardiovascular health
- Increased bone density
- Improved cognitive function
- Improved sense of well being
- Improved sleep
- Improved bone fracture healing
- Improves your hair and nails
If you are concerned taking HGH and testosterone will give you the physique of a bulky bodybuilder, don’t be! You will have a toned, sleek, sexy body, that you will want to show off. Your skin will be tighter, your hair shinier, and your nails stronger.
