Human Growth Hormone – Scam or Miracle?
Human Growth Hormone has been shown in research studies to improve body composition “lean body mass”, decrease fat, increase skin thickness, and increase mineral bone density, among other wellness characteristics.
A lot has been said over the years about human growth hormone. Many claim human growth hormone is a miracle drug while others suggest anti-aging doctors are profiting from naive patients searching for the fountain of youth. Having been involved with growth hormone treatment now for more than a decade, we believe human growth hormone is neither a miracle or a scam. Instead, it is someway a palliative remedy for many signs of aging caused by years of poor nutrition, environmental toxins and obesity. When used properly, human growth hormone can offer many regenerative possibilities for mankind.
All is not known about the important role growth hormone plays in our bodies. However, we do know that bodies produce human growth hormone naturally in the pituitary gland. From the pituitary gland, growth hormone is secreted into the bloodstream. The amount of secretion and receptors determine the body’s ability to grow, heal, and regenerate cells. As growth hormone passes through the liver, it creates another important hormone called IGF-1. It too also aids in growth and recovery.
Important Note: Anyone consider the use of injectable human growth hormone should first be tested by a qualified physician to determine your body’s actual production level of the hormone.
As many now understand, since we were children, our body has naturally secreted human growth hormone from the pituitary gland. As we age and our levels decline, sex drive decreases, the skin wrinkles, brain function slows, and body fat increases. In general, the body becomes easily fatigued. Replenishing human growth hormone can slow and reverse some of these aging related symptoms in adults.
Modern human growth hormone is produced in now mass-produced in the lab. This goes back all the way to the 1980s when scientist first discovered the technology necessary to genetically engineer 100% bioidentical human growth hormone in the lab. Before that time growth hormone had to be taken from cadavers, which could put patients at risk for transfer of disease. This is no longer a risk with 100% bioidentical synthetic human growth hormone.
At the present time, human growth hormone replacement therapy in the United States is very expensive. One can expect to pay as much as $1,500-$2,000 USD per month for a human growth hormone prescription in the USA. AntiAge Medical through the Anti Aging and Wellness Clinics, currently has 4 treatment centers in Latin America where human growth hormone is offered at much more affordable prices. As an example, a patient can expect to pay about $18 per IU for Nordatropin Human Growth Hormone Replacement. That will equate to about $550 USD per month for human growth hormone replacement therapy, assuming a standard dosing protocol.
Important Note: Norditropin human growth hormone is the number one leading growth hormone used throughout the world and the United States. It is manufactured by Novo Nordisk.

It is only a list of the most common beneficial characteristics often listed in the research literature or in anecdotal findings among anti-aging medical clinics based on patient feedback.
