Human Growth Hormone

Human Growth Hormone

Human Growth Hormone or HGH has been used by adults to gain a range of health benefits. It is also used in the weight loss arena because it reduces liver uptake of glucose, an effect that opposes that of insulin. HGH also tends to promote lipolysis, which results in some reduction of body fat.

Other uses for HGH include:

* to reverse effects of aging in older adults
* to aid bodybuilding
* to enhance weight loss in obesity
* for fibromyalgia
* Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis

HGH has been shown to improve muscle strength and slightly reduce body fat in Prader-Willi syndrome, benefits more important to these children than increased height. It has also been shown to help maintain muscle mass in AIDS wasting. GH can also be used in patients with short bowel syndrome to lessen the requirement for intravenous parenteral nutrition.
