What Is Growth Hormone?
Growth hormone is responsible for cell regeneration and reproduction. Originating in the pituitary gland and secreted into the bloodstream, growth hormone interacts with tissues in the body. It contributes to the development of bone and cartilage. In both children and adults, growth hormone stimulates protein production and the body’s ability to utilize fat.
As we age, growth hormone levels steadily decline, which can affect energy levels, muscle strength, joint health, exercise performance, and metabolism. In appropriate patients, Growth hormone supplementation can safely and effectively help individuals facing symptoms of growth hormone decline and deficiency.
