HGH as an Osteoporosis Treatment
HGH is a natural substance produced by one's pituitary glands at its highest levels during childhood. The higher levels of HGH in a person's body, the more IGF-1 their body produces. IGF-1 is responsible for both healing damaged cells and developing new ones.
Osteoporosis is caused by the deterioration of bones that begins occurring after a person turns 30. Prior to age 30, a person's builds and stores bone. After 30, those bones begin to break down. If a person did not build enough bone density in their youth, they can suffer from osteoporosis -- a low bone density that causes bone to become fragile and break easily.
One major factor in osteoporosis is the fact that a person's body produces less and less GH as they age. GH is responsible for healing damaged bone cells, so, when a person is young, their GH heals damaged bone cells. As they grow in age, the amount of GH their body naturally produces declines, and their body is no longer able to repair these damaged calls. The result in a significant number of elderly people is osteoporosis.
HGH is a synthetic human growth hormone that can be used to return a person's GH levels to those of their youth. For this reason, HGH can strengthen bones and may even heal bone damage caused by osteoporosis.
HGH is commonly purchased for use as an anti-ageing drug. It's currently being researched for the effectiveness of its use to slow down the aging process, and it's widely used in alternative clinics for the elderly as a means of rejuvenation.
