HGH or Human Growth Hormone is considered a “performance enhancing” substance by most major sports organizations. As such, it is banned and tested for by the NFL, NBA and similar organizations worldwide.
The recent controversy regarding Peyton Manning has brought HGH back into the spotlight once again.
HGH may still be looked on poorly by major league sports, but it is being used with increasing success among non-athletes, primarily in relieving pain and accelerating healing. So, is it time that the sports world take another look at it.
As a medical practitioner who has seen first-hand the many benefits of Human Growth Hormone(HGH), I say yes!
HGH and Healing
Now let me make one thing completely clear. I am in no way suggesting the use, or abuse of HGH to give any pro-athlete an unfair advantage on the playing field.
However, it has been shown in recent, and ongoing studies to speed up and improve healing. This is exactly the kind of research into HGH therapy that sports franchise owner, and Shark Tank investor, Marc Cuban is supporting.
Pro athletes are well paid individuals and team owners rely on them. Sports medicine is dedicated to keep these high-performance athletes from getting hurt, and from recovering more efficiently if they are injured.
In my professional opinion, if it proves to be effective in helping joints heal faster and better, it is wrong to deny team doctors the ability to use it. Sports doctors are already permitted to prescribe pain-killers, anti-depressants and other drugs. These all have far more negative side-effects than Human Growth hormone.
There have been several recent studies that indicate HGH’s ability to restore connective tissue. Extensive research in this area continues. I see no reason why pro-sports should bar the limited use of Human Growth Hormone(HGH) for injured athletes, just until they are able to return to the field.
Other Positive Uses of HGH Therapy
It may be some time before the sports world considers my suggestion, if at all. In the meantime, there are many other benefits of it that can be enjoyed by lay persons.
We are learning more and more about HGH’s role in anti-aging. It is a hormone that is necessary to allow your cells to grow and multiply so you can increase in size and strength from a child to an adult.
However, even when you have reached you full height and maturity, it is still important. While you may no longer be growing, as long as you are living you need to repair and replace cells that become damaged or die.
When we are young, we have much more HGH. That is why kids heal faster than adults. As your HGH production decreases the older you get, your ability to replace dying cells also decreases. You reach a point where more die, than can be replaced, this is what we experience as “aging.”
The lower levels of HGH contribute to weight gain, lack of vitality, loss of muscle mass and even sexual wellness issues we experience the older we get.
HGH therapy can:
- Increase the rejuvenation and growth of cells throughout your body
- Help you burn fat and lose weight
- Help you build lean muscle
- Improve your immune response and help you heal and recover faster
- Make you feel younger and more vital
- Improve sexual wellness
The only way to determine if you have sub-optimal HGH levels is through appropriate testing. If you are found to be lower than you should be for your age, you may be prescribed HGH therapy. Real therapy can only be obtained with a physician’s prescription, and can only be administered with injections.
If you see any products available without a prescription, or to be taken without injections, it is not real HGH.
Have you, or anyone you know ever tried a hormone replacement therapy, what were the results?
