Human Growth Hormone (HGH) or rDNA somatropin is a hormone that is naturally produced by your body. It is synthesized and secreted by cells in the anterior pituitary gland located at the base of the brain. Its secretion into the blood circulation follows a pulsating pattern resulting in fluctuating IGF-1 blood serum levels and production is at its peak during sleep at night. In blood serum, Human Growth Hormone exists as a complex combination of substances that control and regulate other hormones and bodily functions.
HGH is the primary or master hormone responsible for growth, repair and regeneration of cells, tissues and organs in the body. Following secretion into the blood circulation, HGH has short half-life of about 10 minutes. When HGH levels are low your body’s ability to repair and maintain itself is impaired. For this reason many hormone specialists believe age-related disease and health conditions come from low or deficient hormone levels like HGH, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid, insulin, melatonin, estrogen and progesterone. hGH stimulates many metabolic processes in cells. hGH affects protein, fat, carbohydrate and mineral metabolism. The major role of hGH is to stimulate the liver to secrete Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-I). IGF-I stimulates muscle and bone growth and also plays a key role in muscle protein synthesis and organ growth. Learn more about what is HGH – About HGH.
