In 1990, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed growth hormone essentially reverses the signs of aging in men, results that have been upheld by hundreds of subsequent studies.
One of the earliest benefits of human growth hormone (HGH) therapy is fat loss – especially around the abdomen, where a lot of men develop the classic beer belly. Within weeks of starting HGH injections, men beginning shedding fat and replacing it with muscle. In a controlled study at Thomas Hospital in London, 24 adults treated with HGH lost an average of 12.5 pounds of fat and replaced it with 12.1 pounds of lean body mass. Why is this hormone important in men? Because growth hormone declines with aging. By age 40, our growth hormone production is 40% of what we produced in our 20s, and by age 60, it is less than 25%. The decline of growth hormone and the related hormone IGF1 are directly related to cardiovascular disease, reduced sexual function, decreased energy, increased body fat, loss of muscle and many other symptoms of aging.
Men who have used HGH for years talk about similar benefits: they don’t feel the aches and pains they used to, they sleep better, they have higher energy levels, and their sex lives have improved.

How Does Hormone Therapy Work?
HGH therapy involves the restoration of hormone levels. Recombinant DNA growth hormone (somatropin) is indistinguishable from naturally produced growth hormone (somatotropin). In fact, the synthetic version has been abused by professional athletes precisely because it is so difficult to detect.
Recombinant human growth hormone (somatropin) is a protein that is manufactured to be nearly identical to the main form of the naturally occurring human growth hormone. This hormone can stimulate tissue growth, linear growth (height), and protein, carbohydrate, lipid, and mineral metabolism. It has approved indications in both the adult and pediatric populations.

What Else Do I Need To Know?
Growth hormone deficiency should never be treated without balancing the entire endocrine system. It works in synergy with other hormones. In men, these hormones include testosterone, cortisol, thyroid hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), DHEA, insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), and luteinizing hormone (LH), among others. All of these hormones must be at an optimal balance for men to feel their best.
If, for example, testosterone levels are low (low T) or the adrenal glands are depleted (adrenal fatigue) growth hormone replacement will not achieve the desired effect.
When a man enters andropause (male menopause) all of his “vitalizing” hormones have dropped to a faction of their previous levels. In order restore him to a maximum state of wellness, the entire spectrum of hormone deficiencies seen in andropause should be addressed.
