Growth Hormone Can Be Used Against Aging
Having a healthier aging is the goal of many people seeking my office. In addition to the diet rich in vitamins and minerals, which plays an important role in aging, a hormone produced by our body can also help: HgH or growth hormone.
It rejuvenates skin, muscles and bones, recovers functions of organs such as the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys, revitalizes the body's immune system. the immune system, decreases the risks of heart attack and stroke, improves oxygen uptake in patients with emphysema and prevents osteoporosis.
The main advice and never take HgH replacement on its own, since only when prescribed by a doctor, it is safe and shows positive results
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that 20 men between the ages of 61 and 81 treated with synthetic HgH showed a reduction in sagging and localized fat accumulation and had an increase in muscle mass. The research also showed the following results:
- After six months of use, there was an increase of 8.8%, on average, muscle mass, without the need for exercise, and a reduction of about 14.4% of fat, without diet.
- Regenerates the heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, and skin.
- Supports wrinkles, reduces cellulite, promotes hair growth, restores skin elasticity and firmness, reverses skin dehydration. other organs compromised by old age.
- Boosts immune status, strengthens bones and accelerates recovery from injury. It lowers blood pressure and improves cholesterol levels, helping to keep HDL high and low LDL.
- Improves sleep, mood, vision, memory and sexual performance.
In addition to these results, Hgh also proved to be very effective in fighting obesity, improving metabolism, increasing muscle mass and selectively reducing fat accumulated in the waist, abdomen, arms and legs.
Even though this hormone is very important for our body, its production decreases sensibly with time. At age 21, normal HgH levels are about 10 milligrams per deciliter of blood, and at 61, only 2 milligrams? 80% less. For this reason, replacement is almost always indicated for the elderly by age 65.
For many specialists this replacement should be done even earlier. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration - a government agency that controls food and medicines? recommends replacement for patients with low HgH levels after age 40.
But just like all types of hormone replacement, some care needs to be taken with HgH consumption. The main advice and never do it on your own, since only when prescribed by a doctor, it is safe and shows positive results.
An exaggerated amount of HgH in the body can lead to acromegaly, which is excessive growth of some parts of the body, such as hands and feet. Fluid retention and carpal tunnel syndrome are also linked to excess growth hormone.
The point diet stipulates each food a distinct score based on the caloric value of each item. In it, there are no dietary restrictions, however, when an individual adopts this method, he receives a certain amount of points that must be distributed throughout the meals. Therefore, it is always necessary to record what was ingested in the meals and the quantity.
According to data from the Ministry of Health, only 41% of infants under six months in Brazil are exclusively breastfed. The rate is similar to the world average, estimated at less than 40% by the WHO (World Health Organization). According to the organization, the ideal would be that 90% to 100% of children with this age group would be exclusively breastfed.
