HGH, or somatotropin, is also known as human growth hormone, something that naturally occurs in humans, peaks during puberty, then gradually declines over time as we age. By the time we’re 30, our HGH levels are half of what they were at puberty. But what is HGH really and what does it do?
HGH controls or influences biological functions ranging from metabolism to sleep ability, but also includes immune function, muscle cell growth, and libido. In other words, HGH controls functions normally attributed to human aging.
Somatotropin vs Somatropin
Somatotropin is the natural occurring human growth hormone. Somatropin is a synthetically developed human growth hormone. Blood tests can differentiate the difference in the bloodstream.
Professional and collegiate athletes are banned from having somatropin in their blood, whereas somatotropin is naturally occurring and acceptable.
How to Increase HGH?
HGH is produced in the pituitary, so while you can inject or supplement yourself directly with HGH, it’s more effective to stimulate the pituitary gland to produce more of the body’s own HGH.
Sermorelin is a prescription-level strong peptide that increases the pituitary gland’s production of somatotropin, and it requires a prescription. This pill causes an increase of natural HGH, or somatotropin.
Other ways to increase HGH levels in the body include taking it in pill form, such as getting a prescription for somatropin.
Prescriptions for somatropin are given to treat children’s growth disorders as well as adult growth hormone deficiency.
Somatropin prescriptions increase somatropin, or synthetic HGH levels in the body, and are still effective.
NewULife Somaderm HGH Gel
Another way to increase your somatropin (synthetic HGH) levels is with a topical gel called Somaderm, which is sold by distributors of NewULife, a new network marketing company.
Does HGH Work?
HGH does increase functionality of the aforementioned bodily processes, and may give professional athletes a big of a boost.
HGH Weight Loss
If you’re looking for rapid weight loss, don’t get HGH confused with HCG. HCG diet can induce weight loss of up to one pound a day. HGH isn’t that. Because your body may function a bit better, it’s not unlikely that weight loss may occur. Increased healthy habits tend to pile up with small wins, such as those that a bit more HGH in your system can cause.
The team at ModernLean has reached the consensus opinion that it is not a weight loss booster, but another form of biohacking.
