Osteoporosis or loss of bone density is a serious problem in women as they get older.
Women are at a greater risk of developing osteoporosis than men because their bones tend to be smaller and weaker, to begin with, and as they lose estrogen, a hormone that protects bones, they lose more bone density than males. In fact, 1 in 2 women over 50 suffer a broken bone or a fracture due to osteoporosis.
HGH, or human growth hormone, has been thought to improve bone health, and can help to prevent the bone loss that occurs as we age. A new study seems to indicate that growth hormone therapy could be an effective treatment for women with osteoporosis.
HGH and Bone Health
The study, recently published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, suggests that “older women with osteoporosis could get lasting benefits from a few years on growth hormone.”

Before entering the ten-year study, 56% of the women had experienced fractures due to bone loss. During the ten year period of the trial in which they were on HGH replacement therapy, that number dropped to only 28%.
The researchers admit that the study involved only a small sample of women and that more research is needed before HGH will be an approved treatment specifically for osteoporosis. However, this is one of a growing number of clinical trials that point to the many benefits of growth hormone replacement therapy.
Growth Hormone Therapy and Optimal Aging
Besides showing positive effects for treating bone loss, there are many other “anti-aging” benefits of HGH. In fact, HGH may be your body’s most important hormone, since it is responsible for stimulating the growth, healing, and renewal of all the cells in your body.
Of course, when you are young, HGH is necessary so you can grow and mature from a child to an adult.
But, even once you are “all grown up,” growth hormone still plays a vital role in renewing and repairing every cell in your body. Despite the need for its continued presence, the production of HGH does slow down over time.
Levels of HGH begin to drop most significantly as you reach middle age, and that is when most people start to “feel older.” But, what they are really experiencing could be the effects of lower levels of HGH.
Declining levels of HGH can contribute to fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass and bone density, poor sleep, and even sexual issues – all of the things we normally attribute to “aging.” Growth hormone therapy can:
- Rejuvenate and revitalize every cell in the body
- Aid in fat loss, weight reduction, and muscle gain
- Help your body heal faster, and boost your immune system
- Return your energy to more youthful levels
- Improve your overall quality of life
But, the only way to get real growth hormone therapy is with a doctor’s prescription. Do not be fooled by-products on the internet, or in health food stores, that claim to be HGH or contain HGH, they cannot by law.
Real HGH is only given via injection, and only after you have been diagnosed, and given a doctor’s prescription for growth hormone therapy.
