Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is an endocrine hormone that is produced by the anterior portion of the pituitary gland. It is made up of 191 amino acids. Production of HGH decreases with age. Virtually every system in the human body is in some way dependent on HGH for proper functioning. HGH begins to decline in the late 20's and declines steadily until productionis reduced by as much as 90 percent by age 70.
HGH replacement therapy is quickly going to the forefront of preventive and rejuvenating medicine. It has been shown that as we age our body's natural GH production decreases. Many of the symptoms of body decline are seen as a result of this decrease. More importantly, clinical evidence and recent medical research clearly demonstrate that HGH replacement therapy can significantly eliminate these symptoms, reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, strengthen the heart and improve sexual performance.

An article in a recent issue of Preventive Medicine Magazine, speculated on the improved quality of life, and money that could be saved if every man and woman over the age of 35 took growth hormone. The contribution to improved health, quality of life and decrease illnesses, would be an immense saving in personal suffering and health care costs.
Side effects such as water retention and joint pain are rare and are usually only present for a short time until the body adjusts to levels HGH it once had. This is easily controlled by adjusting the dose.

1) HCG is not an FDA approved method of weight-loss therapy. 2) HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
