Human growth hormone (HGH), also known as somatotropin, is a 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.
The role of HGH:
Increases muscle mass
Promotes the breakdown of fats and lipids
Increases cell production and regeneration
Stimulates the growth of organs
Stimulates the immune system
Helps maintain the balance of physiologic processes
Reduces liver uptake of glucose
Helps maintain pancreatic islets
Promotes the synthesis of glucose in the liver from non-carbohydrate sources
Increases calcium retention and strengthens mineralization of bone
The production of growth hormone begins to decline as early as age 35 and continues to decline as we get older. Other factors that can affect the secretion of growth hormone include; diet, exercise, stress, other hormones and sleep.
Symptoms of low HGH include:
Decrease in muscle mass
Increase in body fat
Decrease in bone density (osteoporosis)
Impaired immune system
