Testosterone Testosterone is a steroid hormone that acts in vertebrates to regulate many sexually dimorphic traits and express many fitness related traits in males (Zysline et al. 2006). A hormone is a secreted chemical messenger that coordinates cell-to-cell communication. Testosterone belongs to the class of steroid hormones known as androgensthe generic term for any natural or synthetic compound that stimulates or controls the development and maintenance of masculine characteristics in vertebrates by binding to androgen receptors, including the activity of the accessory male sex organs and development of male secondary sex characteristics. Steroid hormones such as testosterone (and estradiol on the female side) act early in development to organize male or female phenotypes that are activated later (Zysline et al. 2006). Testosterone’s chemical formula is C19H28O2. Although testosterone in vertebrates can activate male-typical phenotypes, testosterone’s presence and action is not limited to males, and both sexes of most vertebrate taxa naturally produce testosterone (Zysline et al. 2006; Nelson 2000). In mammals, including humans, testosterone is primarily synthesized in the male’s testes, but small amounts are also secreted by the female ovaries, the placenta, and the adrenal glands of both sexes. Scientists have isolated testosterone and developed procedures for utilizing it medically to treat a wide variety of medical and psychological conditions, including low libido and even depression. This represents one aspect of human creativityutilizing it in service to others. However, human creativity can also be applied toward ill purposes, and testosterone provides a good example. Despite known side effects, some have used testosterone and other steroids to gain unfair competitive advantage in sports. Some athletes have admitted winning competitions, such as track and field events while circumventing the rules with performance enhancing drugs, to the detriment of honest competitors. This case of sacrificing others and the sport for one’s personal gain reveals an unethical application of human creativity. Testosterone’s effects can be classified as either anabolic (related to protein synthesis and growth) or virilizing (related to the biological development of male sex characteristics). However, the two categories are closely related: Greatly differing amounts of testosterone prenatally, at puberty, and throughout life account for a share of biological differences between males and females. On average, the adult male human produces about 20 to 30 times the amount of testosterone synthesized by an adult female (Larsen, et al. 2002). Nonetheless, like men, women rely on testosterone (albeit in significantly smaller quantities) to maintain libido, bone density, and muscle mass throughout their lives. Since testosterone was isolated by scientists in the 1930s, it has been used to treat a host of clinical issues, ranging from hypogonadism (the underproduction of natural testosterone) to certain forms of cancer, osteoporosis, and depression. More recently, testosterone replacement therapy has become available to older men, whose testosterone levels naturally decline with age; however, large-scale trials to assess the efficiency and long-term safety of this treatment are still lacking. Anabolic steroids, a category which includes testosterone and its derivatives, have also received attention due to their controversial use to increase muscle mass and enhance athletic performance. Anabolic steroids were designated a controlled substance by the United States Congress in 1990, under the Anabolic Steroid Control Act; Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Argentina, and Brazil also have laws controlling their use and distribution (The Steroid Group, 2006). Like other steroid hormones, testosterone is derived from cholesterol, a sterol lipid with the chemical formula C27H45OH. Steroids are characterized by a carbon skeleton with four fused rings; they are distinguished by the functional groups attached to the rings. Androgens (such as testosterone) are a major class of steroid hormones responsible for the development of male secondary sex characteristics. Testosterone is derived from the androgen androstenedione via a reduction of its 17-keto group. The presence of a hydroxyl group (-OH) at position C-17 has enabled the development of synthetic forms of testosterone that can be administered in therapeutic treatments: Most hormones are synthesized in a specialized tissue, then released to target cells as needed. The largest amount of testosterone is produced by the testes in men, but it is also synthesized in smaller quantities in women by the thecal cells of the ovaries, the placenta, and the zona reticularis of the adrenal cortex in both sexes. In the testes, testosterone is specifically produced by the Leydig cells. The male generative glands also contain the Sertoli cells, which require testosterone for spermatogenesis (the synthesis of spermatozoa). Because testosterone is not soluble in water, it is transported to target cells bound to a specific plasma protein called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). When a hormone arrives at the target cell, it binds to, or fits, a site on the receptor protein. Binding creates a ligand-receptor complex, causing a conformational change (a change in the molecule’s structural arrangement) that initiates a sequence of reactions leading to a change in cellular function. The effects of testosterone in humans and other vertebrates are triggered via two main mechanisms: (1) by activation of the androgen receptor and (2) by conversion of testosterone to the steroid estradiol, the major estrogen in humans, which in turn activates certain estrogen receptors. The rate of hormone biosynthesis and secretion is often regulated by feedback circuits, in which changes in the level of one hormone affects the levels of other hormones. Luteinizing hormone (LH), which is synthesized and secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, functions in the regulation of testosterone levels. LH acts upon the Leydig cells of the testis to stimulate testosterone production. LH’s release is controlled by pulses of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus. These pulses, in turn, are subject to estrogen feedback from the gonads. Testosterone has its greatest impact on sexual differentiation during two stages of life: (1) Before birth and (2) during puberty. Most prenatal androgen effects in humans occur between the 7th and 12th weeks of gestation, and are responsible for the masculinization of the developing fetus. Changes include closure of the perineum, thinning and rugation of the scrotum, growth of the penis, and closure of the urethral groove to the tip of the penis. Prenatal virilization of genetic females and undervirilization of genetic males are common causes of ambiguous genitalia and intersex conditions. Undervirilization can occur if a genetic male cannot produce enough androgen or the body tissues are unable to respond to it. In females, intrauterine exposure to heightened levels of testosterone leads to profound genital abnormalities. In humans, for example, excessive exposure to androgens in the womb gives a girl a greatly enlarged clitoris and a vagina that is partially fused shut. In the most severe form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia, complete masculinization of a genetically female fetus results in an apparently normal baby boy with no palpable testes. More often, the virilization is partial and the genitalia are ambiguous. Postnatal effects in both males and females are mostly dependent on the levels and duration of circulating free testosterone. Early postnatal effects are the first visible effects of rising androgen levels in childhood, and occur in both boys and girls during puberty. They include adult-type body odor, increased oiliness of skin (acne), appearance of pubic hair and underarm hair, growth spurts (accelerated bone maturation), and the appearance of fine upper lip and sideburn hair. In males, the following advanced postnatal effects typically manifest themselves during late puberty: Adult testosterone effects are more clearly demonstrable in males than in females, but are likely important to both sexes. Some of these effects may decline as testosterone levels decrease in the later decades of adult life. They include maintenance of muscle mass, maintenance of bone density, libido, and clitoral engorgement/penile erection frequency. Behavioral effects of hormones are difficult to understand and to attribute to a given cause; in addition, a given hormone can have very different effects on behavior depending on the region of the central nervous system on which it acts. Nonetheless, high levels of circulating testosterone have been correlated to aggression in a variety of vertebrate species. For elephant bulls in musth (period condition in bull elephants), the amount of testosterone in the blood soars to levels fifty times higher than usual; during this period, male elephants demonstrate a mix of desperate lust and rage and are likely to engage in fights with other similarly affected males. Moreover, abnormal intrauterine exposure to androgens fosters aggression in females: Female mice that are snuggled between their brothers during fetal life are exposed to higher levels of androgens than females nestled between sisters and are more aggressive adults (Judson 2002). The aggression associated with high levels of naturally circulating testosterone seems to be closely related to reproduction. For example, in male red-winged blackbirds (agelaius phoeniceus), testosterone levels peak during the two-week period when males are defending breeding territories and guarding their mates from rivals (Barnard 2003). A experimental study on female dark-eyed juncos, a species of bird, found that exogenously increased testosterone levels led to increased intrasexual aggression (as well as decreased cell-mediated immune function) (Zysling et al. 2006). Increased aggressive behavior in female birds might help them acquire high quality mates or nesting sites, be more active in nest defense, or help win territorial interactions with other females, but might also lead to increased energy expenditure, potential for injury, or risk of predation (Zysling et al. 2006). Various forms of exogenous (externally produced) testosterone and other anabolic steroids are used in medical treatment and (more controversially) as a bodybuilding tool or performance enhancer; they are most commonly administered in oral, injectable, and transdermal form. Testosterone was originally used for the treatment of males who have little or no natural testosterone productionthat is, males with hypogonadism. Hormone replacement therapy maintains blood testosterone levels in the normal range. Over the years, testosterone has been administered to treat a variety of conditions, including infertility, lack of libido or erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, and for penile enlargement, height growth, bone marrow stimulation and reversal of anemia, and even appetite stimulation. To take advantage of its virilizing effects, testosterone is often administered to female-to-male transsexual men as part of hormone replacement therapy, with a “target level” of the normal male testosterone level. Decline of testosterone production with age has led to a demand for androgen replacement therapy, though there is disagreement within the medical community about the efficacy and safety of such treatments. Caution about embracing testosterone replacement therapy stems in part from the lessons of female hormone replacement therapy trials, where initially promising results were later refuted by larger studies. Still, testosterone replacement therapies in women to treat or prevent osteoporosis have yet to show the risks now associated with estrogen replacement therapies. Women may use testosterone to treat low libido, often a symptom or outcome of hormonal contraceptive use. Women may also use testosterone therapies to treat or prevent loss of bone density and muscle mass and to treat certain kinds of depression. Some drugs work to reduce testosterone’s effects. For example, finasteride inhibits the conversion of testosterone into its metabolite dihydrotestosterone (DHT). By lowering levels of DHT, finasteride may be used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern baldness). Testosterone administered to an athlete in order to improve performance is considered to be a form of doping in most sports. After a series of scandals and publicity in the 1980s (such as runner Ben Johnson’s improved performance at the 1988 Summer Olympics), prohibitions of anabolic steroid use were renewed or strengthened by many sports organizations. Testosterone and other anabolic steroids were designated a controlled substance by the United States Congress in 1990. Anabolic steroids have been associated with numerous side effects when administered in excessive doses; these include elevated cholesterol levels, acne, elevated blood pressure, hepatotoxicity, and alterations in left ventricle morphology. Adolescents who abuse anabolic steroids also risk stunted growth. Some side effects are gender specific. Development of breast tissue in males, a condition called gynecomastia, is usually caused by high levels of circulating estrogen, the result of the increased conversion of testosterone to estrogen via an aromatase enzyme. Another male-specific side effect is testicular atrophy, a temporary reduction in the size of the testes. Possible female-specific side effects include increases in hair, deepening of the voice, enlarged clitoris (clitoral hypertrophy), as well as temporary decreases in menstrual cycles. When taken during pregnancy, anabolic steroids can affect fetal development. A popular conception, perhaps misconception, regarding the side effects of anabolic steroids is that use leads to increased aggression, known in popular parlance as roid rage. Some early studies have shown a slight correlation between manic symptoms and anabolic steroid use; however, more comprehensive and recent studies have brought into question their methodology and conclusions (Pope and Katz 1988). Many scientists and medical professionals have concluded that anabolic steroids do not markedly increase aggressive behaviors (Fudala et al. 2003; Pope et al. 2000; OConner 2002).

January 28, 2015 Credit: Thinkstock Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com Your Universe Online Women are two times more likely to be diagnosed with depression than men, and new research appearing in the journal Biological Psychiatry suggests that their sex hormones may be to blame. According to the researchers from the Medical University of Vienna behind the study, previous scientific studies have proven that female sex hormones have a strong effect on the psyche. Also, phenomena such as the postpartum blues and mood swings that occur prior to menstruation on a regular basis further confirm this association, the study authors claim. Conversely, the male sex hormone testosterone has been found to impact a persons mood and emotions in a positive way, and now the authors believe that they have discovered the biological mechanism behind this relationship which could also help explain why men tend to suffer from depression more often as they grow older and their testosterone output falls. Rupert Lanzenberger from the universitys Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy and his colleagues claim to have demonstrated for the first time that testosterone increases the number of serotonin transporters (proteins) in the human brain. Those proteins regulate the concentration of serotonin, and are also the target for antidepressants, the researchers said. To study this possible effect of testosterone, Lanzenberger and his colleagues used cross-sex steroid hormone treatment of transsexuals who had been seeking gender reassignment therapy. They recruited 33 transsexuals, and used positron emission tomography (PET) both before and after the start of treatment in order to gauge its impact on serotonin transporter levels. As study author Georg Kranz explained, Transsexuals are people who feel that they are living in the wrong body and who therefore want high doses of opposite gender hormone therapy to adapt their appearance to that of the other gender. Genetic women are given testosterone, while genetic men are given oestradiol and medications to suppress testosterone production. Kranz, Lanzenberger and their colleagues found that serotonin transporter levels in the brain were significantly higher after just four weeks of hormone therapy with testosterone, and that the levels increased further if therapy continued beyond that point. In addition, they also found a link between testosterone levels in the blood and the concentration of serotonin transporters.
Female sex hormones have a strong effect on the psyche. This has been confirmed by numerous scientific studies and by phenomena such as the “baby blues,” a bout of low mood following childbirth, or recurrent mood swings that occur prior to menstruation. However the male sex hormone testosterone also affects our mood and emotions, as well as our libido — and in a positive way. In a study published in the highly journal Biological Psychiatry, researchers from the MedUni Vienna have now discovered a potential biological mechanism behind this relationship. As they grow older and as their sex hormone output falls, men suffer more commonly from depression and some studies have already demonstrated a positive effect of testosterone supplementation on the moods of the test subjects. Now, the study led by Rupert Lanzenberger from the University Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy has demonstrated for the first time worldwide that testosterone increases the number of serotonin transporters (proteins) in the human brain. These proteins regulate the concentration of serotonin and are also the target for antidepressants. Serotonin transporters increased after just four weeks of hormone therapy As a model for investigating the effect of testosterone, the researchers from the MedUni Vienna chose hormone therapy given to transsexuals. Says primary author Georg Kranz: “Transsexuals are people who feel that they are living in the wrong body and who therefore want high doses of opposite gender hormone therapy to adapt their appearance to that of the other gender. Genetic women are given testosterone, while genetic men are given oestradiol and medications to suppress testosterone production.” Using the imaging method of positron emission tomography (PET), the scientists together with Wolfgang Wadsak and Markus Mitterhauser from the Clinical Department of Nuclear Medicine and Ulrike Kaufmann from the University Department of Gynaecology have demonstrated that serotonin transporter levels in the brain are significantly higher after just four weeks of hormone therapy with testosterone and that they rise further if therapy continues. Moreover, a close relationship has also been demonstrated between testosterone levels in the blood and the concentration of serotonin transporters. “The study has shown that testosterone increases the potential binding sites for commonly prescribed antidepressants such as SSRIs in the brain and therefore provides major insights into how sex hormones affect the human brain and gender differences in psychiatric illnesses,” says Siegfried Kasper, Head of the University Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the MedUni Vienna.

What are some of the reasons why some hgh and testosterone hormone deficient patients often experience fatigue, depression, obesity and anxiety
HGH Replacement Therapy Treating Low HGH Levels and Deficiency
Some medical conditions that are mental, motivation or energy level associated, especially those related to HGH hormone imbalance, can have a wide variety of deleterious symptoms that often lead people to be misdiagnosed or under-diagnosed, or prescribed the wrong medications and treatments. Low HGH in adult men and women, also known as Adult Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency (AGHD) or Hypopituitarism, can result in flagging low energy, feelings of anxiety and chronic fatigue, these are symptoms that often manifest as a consequence of other health issues affecting the patient which are less readily apparent. Sometimes these mental and physical health issues can be the result of deficiencies in hormones like HGH and testosterone, which can be replaced through injections.
In order to get the best possible injectable HGH replacement treatment, it is important for both doctor and patient to understand how these psychological symptoms can be the result of other factors in a patient’s medical profile, not just hormone decline. Before turning to psychiatric medications, it’s important to rule out other potential causes that can lead to these conditions. Sometimes people become depressed because of obesity or hormone decline, and that’s what our HGH doctors will evaluate at our HGH clinic. Are you low in HGH? A simple IGF-1 test can determine if you are deficient in HGH, you might have hypopituitarism. Are you low in testosterone? A simple blood test can be conducted at a local labcorp center to determine if you have hypogonadism (low t). Take the first step at our HGH rejuvenation clinic. To reach us, the communication form is available for you to provide your confidential information, so you can reach us to discuss your hormone replacement therapy options. Our HGH Clinic serves the whole USA, so be sure to fill out the form and then call us, to talk about HGH injections, testosterone replacement therapy and Sermorelin Acetate. Our HRT clinic provides all kinds of excellent HGH, Sermorelin, Testosterone and HCG Diet Hormone Replacement Treatment programs.
The following list provides some items to be aware of for when a patients complain about symptoms of weight gain, obesity, fatigue, declining libido, sadness, depression, mood swings or anxiety:
These Medications Can Sometimes Have Side Effects that Cause Unintended Mental Effects
Often, a patient experiences psychological symptoms as a result of medicines that they are taking, whether those medicines are prescription or over the counter. The following are some medications that can lead to feelings of Depression, Anxiety, and Exhaustion:
- Muscle Relaxers
- SSRIs (This may come to a surprise to some patients, but in some patients, SSRIs can suppress some feelings associated with depression, while others to experience these feelings more acutely)
- H2 Blockers
- Parkinson Medications
Testosterone Deficiency, Low T and Hypogonadism Can Cause Depression, Anxiety, Fatigue and Obesity
Depression, anxiety, obesity and fatigue are very common symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency, the medical term most often used to describe this is hypogonadism and in the popular culture it has been labelled Low T. If a patient is feeling down, psychologically, and they report that these feelings seem to have crept up on them over time, there is a real chance that these psychological symptoms are a direct result of Low-T (hypogonadism) and Andropause (number of age related symptoms associated with hgh decline). Andropause is a serious medical condition in which the normal decline of Testosterone with age leads to symptoms associated with suppressed Testosterone Levels. These symptoms include:
- Depression – men and women with low hgh or testosterone sometimes describe feelings of sadness for no reason.
- Anxiety – men and women with low IGF-1 levels or low t (hypogonadism) sometimes describe getting anxiety out of the blue.
- Fatigue – men and women with declining levels of testosterone or hgh can experience being tired after a full night’s rest.
- Weight Gain – both men and women gain weight when their hormones are not balanced or in decline.
- Loss of Muscle Mass – in our 40s we easily can lose a pound of muscle and gain a pound of fat due to hormone decline.
- Poor Cholesterol Balance – diet is the best predictor of cholesterol imbalance, but so is genetics, a lipid panel should be conducted.
- Arthritis – arthritis is often a disease associated with old age, poor joint health and in young people genetics.
- Elevated Blood Sugar – eating a low glycemic diet, is one of the best ways to naturally boost ones vital hormones like their HGH Levels.
- Reduced Capacity for Exercise – with HGH and Testosterone hormone decline, finding motivation to exercise can be very difficult.
Hypogonadism often called Low T
Low-T (hypogonadism) or Low Testosterone is one of the most common causes of these psychological symptoms in older patients with no history of depression and anxiety in the past, and that do not have relatives that have experienced depression in the past. In order to effectively assess Testosterone Deficiency, it is important to both measure Free and Total Testosterone. A patient can have clinically normal Total Testosterone Levels and still have Testosterone Deficiency. It is the amount of Bioavailable Testosterone that is most important in the diagnosis of Testosterone Deficiency, not the total amount circulating through the blood stream. Treating testosterone deficiency with injectable testosterone cypionate, testosterone enanthate or testosterone propionate can provide relief when conducted with a proper hormone replacement protocol.
The main symptoms that can clue a doctor or patient into Testosterone Deficiency are reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, fat gain, muscle loss, fatigue, inhibited well-being, and year-round cold sensitivity, in addition to the psychological symptoms explained above. Because Testosterone Deficiency is a complex medical disorder, it is the collection of symptoms rather than the appearance of any single symptom that reveals the likelihood of Hypogonadism.
Hypothyroidism Commonly Leads to Feelings of Exhaustion, Anxiety, and Depression
Hypothyroidism isn’t as common as Testosterone Deficiency, but it can lead to severe issues related to metabolism and energy, which can directly impact psychological wellness. The Thyroid is the energy center for the brain, and if the thyroid isn’t producing sufficient amounts of particular hormones, it can lead to severe energy deficits. Thyroid Hormone Therapy is incredibly effective at normalizing metabolism and energy levels, but it can also take an extended period of time, often months, before it truly provides overwhelming benefits to the patient. Generally, Hypothyroidism is treated with Bio-Identical Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Therapy. Thyroid issues can lead to both major weight loss, or serious problems with obesity, because the thyroid plays a very important roll in metabolism. One should have blood analysis done every 3 months to measure their thyroid levels.
Depression Is a Common Symptom of Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian Cancer is a serious condition that often gets caught later than it should. One of the initial symptoms that women experience as a result of Ovarian Cancer is depression. This symptom often manifests in the patient in the months and years preceding more severe symptoms. By the time the most obvious symptoms of Ovarian Cancer become apparent, the patient is in much greater danger, because the cancer is usually in its later stages by the time these more powerful symptoms manifest. Women should go to their doctor quickly if they are experiencing feelings of depression, because this can potentially save their life. In other words hormone decline isn’t always the culprit when depression sets in.
Sleep Apnea and Restless Leg Syndrome Can Both Lead to Exhaustion, Fatigue, and Depression
Sleep Apnea is a medical condition in which a patient does not get healthy sleep, because their breathing becomes disrupted, depriving oxygen to the body and brain. If the condition becomes severe enough, the patient will often wake up with a start, gasping for air, but the condition often manifests as loud snoring. When a patient isn’t getting the restful sleep that they need, they wake up tired and exhausted, no matter how long that they stay in bed.
On top of that, Sleep Apnea severely impacts the body’s natural production of Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone, because both of these hormones are primarily produced during sleep. As we mentioned earlier, Testosterone Deficiency is another cause of fatigue and depression, and patients with Sleep Apnea often experience significant psychological and metabolic symptoms resulting from their condition. Medical conditions not associated with low HGH or testosterone deficiency, can often cause these same hormones to decline.
Sleep Apnea is most effectively treated with breathing devices. Some patients do fine with specialized mouthpieces designed to facilitate airflow, whereas other patients need a CPAP Machine, which provides a steady stream of air to keep airways open. Severe sleep apnea sometimes requires surgery or other methods to correct.
Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome leads to similar issues, but with a different root source. Restless Leg Syndrome is a condition in which the patient is unable to keep their legs still during sleep, or they feel the uncomfortable urge to move their legs, which disrupts their sleep. This is a real neurological disorder, and it can prevent the patient from getting healthy sleep because they either have trouble falling asleep, or they can’t get restless sleep because of their unconscious movements.
Get Hormone Treatment from a reputable HGH and Testosterone Clinic
There are a number of medications that can lead to or exacerbate Restless Leg Syndrome, including MAO-Inhibitors, SSRIs, and any medication which suppresses dopamine, such as Reglan and certain antipsychotics. Commonly, Restless Leg Syndrome is treated with a low dose opiate, Klonopin, or Requip. The best thing for you to do is get more than one opinion, contact us if you are feeling symptoms associated with depression, obesity, anxiety or fatigue, we can send you to a local hormone clinic or blood draw center in your town, or city, to test your HGH and testosterone levels. If you are low in these vital hormones, we can offer you HGH and testosterone replacement programs to optimize your hormone levels. There is no reason for you to feel fatigue, anxiety, depression or suffer from weight management issues, HRT hormone replacement treatments might be right for you. We offer hormone treatments for both men and women. Fill out the contact form on our web site, and then call us to confirm you filled out the form. We can talk to you about the costs associated with these programs and how to get started.
Since it is abundantly clear that maintaining optimal HGH Levels is helpful and beneficial, you’re likely wondering what you can do to support and sustain Human Growth Hormone Concentrations in the blood stream. There are three things that you can do to promote HGH Production: Weight Training, Healthy Sleep, and Good Diet.
Exercise for Increased HGH Levels
One of the best ways to amplify your own natural Human Growth Hormone Production is through exercise, although some forms of exercise are superior to others with regard to encouraging HGH Production. The two forms of physical activity which produce the best HGH gains are anaerobic exercise and High Intensity-Interval Training.
Anaerobic exercise is anything that puts resistance-pressure on your muscles. Any activity that mimics the effects of weight lifting on the body is a form of anaerobic exercise. High Intensity-Interval Training is a form of activity in which you alternate pushing your body to the limit and active resting.
These activities are catabolic, and your body will respond by producing Human Growth Hormone to stimulate repair and balance your energy state. When you engage in these forms of activity, your muscles develop tiny, microscopic tears, which HGH production helps to heal, and in the process, this increases your strength. These forms of activity also encourage the body to burn fat, as glycogen energy stores become depleted.
There’s nothing better that you can do to naturally stimulate HGH release than perform these kinds of training.
Human Growth Hormone production can be manipulated, and if you want to maximize your HGH Production, it’s important to master this form of manipulation. Although high-intensity exercise increases HGH Secretion, there are limits to the HGH benefits that can be gained through physical activity. For example, it’s important to limit your training to 45 minutes per day, at least when you first begin a set regimen. This is because Growth Hormone Production plateaus during physical training, but after around 45 minutes, the body produces less Human Growth Hormone, and it starts producing more Cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone, and when your body produces too much of it, it can counteract the benefits of Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone.
Of course, that 45 minutes is just a baseline, and that number can be adjusted over time with sufficient training. For example, if you exercise consistently 4-6 times per week for a month, you can increase the length of time that you exercise and maintain HGH production for an extra 2 minutes. This means that, over the course of months, you’ll be able to engage in an hour of vigorous exercise per session while influencing your hormone production optimally.
The research regarding this has only been conducted over short periods of time, under a year in almost all circumstances. This means that, over a longer period of time, you may be able to push your body even further. In spite of this open-ended possibility, the vast majority of physical trainers recommend no more than an hour of high-intensity training.
Get Sufficient Rest to Maximize HGH Production
Although you do produce Human Growth Hormone when you exercise and sporadically throughout the day, the vast majority of the HGH that you will release every day is while you are asleep. The body secretes 3/4s of its daily Human Growth Hormone Production in the hours that you are asleep, and this HGH is produced primarily when you are in REM-Sleep.
Because of this reality, it is vitally important to get a healthy night’s sleep every night if you want to have ideal hormone levels. It is true that your body will produce some HGH while you are in even the most fitful of sleeps, but it’s important to engage in deep, restful sleep in order to get your Hormone Balance in order. The same goes for Testosterone, which is also produced mostly while you are asleep.
Growth Hormone produced during rest is devoted mostly to rejuvenation and rehabilitation. It helps your body rebuild energy stores depleted as a result of the activities of the previous day. HGH produced via exercise promotes a heightened level of activity and improves output, and is directed more efficiently by the human body.
If you are interested in maximizing the gains from your physical exercise and simply want look and feel better, you should make the concerted effort to get eight to ten hours of healthy sleep per night. Wake up when you feel most invigorated, and maintain that good habit.
In addition to getting a full night’s sleep, make sure you get that sleep at around the same time each night. There is evidence that sleeping at the same time every night and establishing a strong pattern increases the amount of time that you spend in REM Sleep, and therefore enhances your natural Hormone Production.
Of course, we all know that sometimes you go out a little too late on the weekends, or factors out of your control alter your sleep/wake times. There are ways to mitigate the circadian impact of these altered habits, however. For example, if you normally sleep from 11-7, but you stay out until 2am on Friday night, wake up at 11am on Saturday and take an hour long nap later in the day for the next three days. This way, you can average out your sleep debt and minimize the effect that it has on your normal schedule.
Good Nutrition to Maximize HGH Levels
Diet and nutrition are also vitally important for maximizing your HGH Production and therefore maximizing the benefits of your workout regimen. If you are interested in increasing muscle mass and tone, nutrition is the key that amplifies the benefits of exercise and healthy sleep.
There has been a lot of research into Human Growth Hormone Secretagogues. Secretagogues are hormones which increase or improve the production of other hormones. In order for your body to effectively make the most Human Growth Hormone, you need to provide the body with all of the appropriate building blocks needed, the most important of which are amino acids. Of course, if you take amino acid supplements, or eat fortified foods containing amino acids, it’s important to ensure that a round fifteen to twenty percent of your calories that you intake today are clean fats.
Clean fats are natural fats such as Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Omega-6 Fatty Acids, and Saturated Fats, which promote healthy cholesterol levels which are necessary to produce hormones effectively. Unsaturated and Polyunsaturated Fats should be a minority of the fat calories that you intake daily, and you should avoid trans fats by all means necessary.
If you take amino acid supplements, take them around forty-five minutes before you exercise in order to amplify HGH Production optimally. The following amino acids play a role in Human Growth Hormone Production, and you can use them as part of your pre-workout supplementation:
5 to 8 grams of Arginine – Arginine is one of the primary amino acids which facilitate HGH Production. In fact, Arginine is used in HGH Testing in order to determine the health of the pituitary gland.
4 to 7 grams of Ornithine – Ornithine is the second most important amino acid with regard to HGH Production. Arginine and Ornithine are important components of Human Growth Hormone, and when taken simultaneously, they increase the benefits of one another.
5 grams of Glutamine – Glutamine isn’t directly responsible for HGH Production, but this amino acid performs some of the same ancillary functions as Arginine, and allows the body to use Arginine for HGH Production more effectively.
3 to 10 grams of Glycine – Glycine has been shown to be an effective supplement to both increase HGH Release during exercise and as a means to boost production during sleep.
3 to 6 grams of Branch-Chain Amino Acids – These amino acids facilitate the processes which enhance muscle repair and building. When combined with Human Growth Hormone, the results are maximized.
Trace Supplementation of Lysine and GABA – These amino acids can benefit HGH production and weight training gains, but they should not be taken at the same time as the previously mentioned supplements. These amino acids are associated with relaxation and calmness, and many take these amino acids in order to facilitate metabolism post-workout.
There are other important nutrients that help you produce maximum HGH. Among these are antioxidants, Vitamin B2, and Vitamin C.
Of course, the suggested doses are intended for individuals looking to maximize their workout capacity. For those that are looking for physiological benefits but aren’t necessarily looking to bulk up, smaller doses taken in the morning or just before bed can provide great benefits.
By taking the Amino Acids above at the quantities listed, it is possible to enhance natural, baseline Human Growth Hormone production by around fifty percent. In addition to the supplementation above, you’ll also ideally be getting plenty of a variety of amino acids from the protein in your diet.
When Should You Turn to HGH Therapy?
Using the tips above, you can do wonders for your HGH Production, but aging still limits the potential gains of your day-to-day lifestyle regimen. Over time, your body will lose its ability to produce HGH as efficiently as it did when you were younger. Many men and women never reach the point where their HGH Levels become so low that it seriously hinders their health, but many others reach a point where reduced Growth Hormone Production reduces energy levels, body composition, and psychological well-being, just to name a few issues related to the condition.
If, as you grow older, you start to feel the limits of your natural Hormone Balance, it would benefit you to contact a health professional to have your Hormone Levels checked. With a simple physical and blood test, it is possible to create a revealing snapshot of your underlying hormone balance, and your physician can offer his or her opinion regarding what you can do to improve your Hormone Balance and whether HGH Injection Therapy or other Hormone Replacement Products can help you optimize your health and wellness.
There is a lot of promising research with regard to HGH Therapy, as well as other associated therapies designed to improve health and wellness via the same mechanism. For example, Sermorelin Acetate and Tesamorelin Acetate are both Hormone Treatments which have the capacity to enhance HGH Production. They do so by imitating the function of GH-RH in the blood stream. In fact, these hormones have the same physiological effect on the body as Human Growth Hormone.
Sermorelin and Tesamorelin are commonly prescribed for patients suffering from Age-Associated HGH Deficiency, and these hormones actually have a slightly better safety profile than Human Growth Hormone. They are also cheaper, which many patients find appealing. Finally, Sermorelin is available off-label, unlike Human Growth Hormone. Unfortunately, HGH, in spite of its immense potential benefits, is highly restricted as a medication, owing largely to its use as a Performance Enhancing Drug. Your physician may find that you qualify for Sermorelin or Tesamorelin Therapy even if you don’t qualify for HGH Therapy just yet.
August 04, 2012 Many people call Sermorelin injections the poor mans human growth hormone (HGH) injections treatment program for adult men and women. The reason is HGH and Sermorelin do exactly the same thing, which is ultimately stimulate IGF-1 from the liver with the result being the stimulation of cell regeneration in the human body. Why are the Benefits of Sermorelin Injections are the exact same as HGH Injections? The benefits and side effects of HGH and Sermorelin are identical, but Sermorelin works better with the hypothalamus-pituitary-liver regulation axis, where as HGH does not. In lay persons terms when you inject HGH unless the doses are small, they are not natural like the ones your body releases in pituitary bursts about 30 times in a single day. With Sermorelin you are stimulating your pituitary gland to release HGH, not putting HGH into your body, there is a big difference, and the fact of the matter is that after decades of rave reviews for the benefits of Growth Hormone injection treatment, people are now starting to switch to Sermorelin because it is usually about half the price. What are Adult Men and Women Saying About Sermorelin and Testosterone Injections Treatment Programs? The number of people who are suffering from HGH and Testosterone hormone deficiency have reported that they got the best anti-aging results from a growth hormone treatment program that was exclusive utilizing Sermorelin Injections and Low Testosterone Replacement Therapy programs. How do I get on a personalized Hormone Replacement Therapy Program through a legitimate USA based medical clinic that works with patients in the 50 United States? The first step is to fill out the Hormone Treatment Online Medical History Form.
Saizen Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy Saizen is one of a small, but growing number of legal HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy medications in the United States. Saizen is produced by the pharmaceutical manufacturer Merck Serono. Merck Serono is one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, and is based in Geneva, Switzerland. This company is not to be confused with the domestic pharmaceutical company Merck & Company, and in North America, Merck Serono is known as EMD Serono. Saizen is an injectable form of Synthetic Human Growth Hormone. The History of HGH Originally, HGH Hormone Treatments were made from real Growth Hormone harvested from human tissue, but in the year 1981, medical researchers were able to figure out a way to synthetically produce Bio-Identical HGH in a laboratory. Before it was possible to manufacture Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone, HGH treatments were far more costly than they are today, and as a result of this breakthrough, and others since, Human Growth Hormone Injectable Therapy has continued to become cheaper and more affordable to the average consumer. Saizen Human Growth Hormone is Simple and Easy to Use Saizen HGH follows in that legacy of making Growth Hormone cheaper and easier to use. The following are a number of products released by Serono in order to perform HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy: Saizen HGH Therapy Administration Devices Saizen Cool.Click HGH Treatment The Saizen cool.click is a revolutionary means of delivering Human Growth Hormone. Although the HGH is still delivered subcutaneously via injection, the Saizen cool.click does not need a needle! The cool.click works by creating a small hole through which Saizen Human Growth Hormone is delivered. This tiny hole is produced using a spring mechanism. In the past, many people have been nervous about HGH Hormone Replacement because before this point, the only way to deliver HGH was directly through a potentially imposing needle. Many people just can’t commit to any medical therapy which requires them to stick themselves with a needle every day. Although the Saizen cool.click was the first needle-free means of delivering HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy, EMD Sorono has updated the design to increase ease of use, comfort, and accuracy, with an updated version known as the Saizen cool.click2. EMD Serono lists the following features of the Saizen cool.click2: Needle-less delivery This form of HGH Delivery vastly reduces needle anxiety. Easy-to-read LCD monitor The monitor displays dosing information and can ensure that a patient delivers exactly enough Saizen HGH in order to properly treat his or her HGH Deficiency. Thoughtful shape and design the Saizen cool.click2 is ergonomically configured in order to maximize ease of use. Reduced noise the cool.click2 is much quieter than its previous design, allowing you to deliver HGH without bringing attention to yourself. Reverse dosage dialing this mechanism allows the patient to adjust and readjust dosage at any point before administering HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy. Alterable injection pressure This HGH Injection Tool lets you adjust the rate at which the spring mechanism pierces the skin, allowing you to minimize potential discomfort at the injection site. Safer than needles Because of the way that the cool.click2 is designed, there is virtually no risk of accidentally pricking yourself. The spring mechanism only exposes itself at your command, and you don’t have to cautiously prepare a needle for every injection. Delivers doses in both milligrams and milliliters the cool.click2 can adapt to different measurement scales, allowing you to dose accurately in regard to both mass and volume. HGH Therapy with Saizen Easypod Like the Saizen cool.click, the Saizen easypod is another product produced by EMD Serono which is designed with comfort and ease of use particularly in mind. The easypod is a simple-to-use injection device which quickly and accurately delivers injections of Bio-Identical HGH. The easypod is what is known as an easy injector. This means that the easypod is a means to deliver injections of HGH without the vigorous protocol of a standard needle injection. The Saizen easypod has the capability of quickly and automatically titrating the appropriate dose of HGH. Upon pressing the trigger button, the machine automatically provides an injection of Human Growth Hormone, minimizing the amount of potential contact the you will make with the needle. The Saizen easypod exclusively uses cartridges known as Saizen click.easy in order to deliver the intended dosage. The click.easy device serves two primary purposes. First, the click.easy is a reconstitution device. The Saizen Human Growth Hormone is combined with a fully sanitized solution in order both to rehydrate anhydrous HGH and to convert the Human Growth Hormone into a deliverable form. Second, the click.easy is a delivery device. The click.easy is designed and shaped in a way which allows the patient to use it in combination with the Saizen easypod in order to maximize safety and ease of delivery. The Saizen easypod can be used repeatedly in order to deliver HGH injections as long as it is properly maintained, and new needles are use for every injection. The easypod has a large monitor which allows patients of all ages to easily see and understand the instructions and options provided by the device. The easypod also provides multiple means of decreasing discomfort associated with injection. The individual patient can adjust injection administration via four distinct settings: Needle Speed, Injection Speed, Injection Depth, Injection Time. HGH Easypod Settings Needle Speed This setting adjusts the speed at which the needle is injected through the skin. Using this method is much more precise than performing a manual injection. Injection Speed This refers to the rate by which the Saizen Human Growth Hormone is delivered into the body. This setting is a substitute for manually adjusting the speed using the plunger of a needle. Injection Depth With this setting, you can alter the depth at which the needle descends. Dependent upon the location of the injection, different depths may be required. In addition to this, some may find that deeper injections cause increased discomfort. Injection depth also depends upon which needle the patient uses. Injection Time This prompt controls the amount of time that the needle remains in the skin after injection. Some patients find it more comfortable to increase the time between injection and needle removal. The Saizen easypod also maintains a diary of past injections, allowing both you and your physician to have a record of your injection schedule. The goal of the Saizen easypod is to reduce the effort it takes to undergo safe and effective Human Growth Hormone Injections while also minimizing pain or discomfort which can result from the use of needles. The easypod even allows you to input expiration dates to ensure that you dispose of your reconstituted synthetic Human Growth Hormone as soon as it becomes expired and ineffective. Saizen one.click HGH Injector The Saizen one.click is another means of injecting Saizen Human Growth Hormone. Like the easypod, the one.click is another injection device which focuses on being easy to use. The one.click is a much simpler device than the easypod. This product is mechanical only and features no monitor or electrical equipment of any kind. The one.click has an adjustable dial which controls how much Human Growth Hormone you inject in a single dose. In addition to this, you can also adjust the depth of the needle injection manually. One of the primary advantages of the Saizen one.click is that it is simple to store and easy to carry and conceal. Also, because the one.click is a completely mechanical device, it is cheaper than the easypod while also being easier to use than a standard injection. The Saizen one.click automatically delivers the HGH injection with a single click, minimizing the time it takes to deliver the injection. The device itself also minimizes potential inappropriate contact with the needle as well. As with all forms of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone, the reconstituted solution should be stored at temperatures between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit in order for the hormone to remain effective and useful. Saizen click.easy The Saizen click.easy is the simplest injection device that Merck-Serono provides. This product still has the capability of injecting HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy quicker and more simply than a standard injection, but lacks all of the bells and whistles associated with the other Saizen Delivery Devices. This product still minimizes needle exposure and also delivers a subcutaneous injection with a single click, however. This device is for patients who want a quick and easy way to inject HGH Therapy without the need or desire to make more precise adjustments with other more high-tech injection devices. How is Saizen HGH Supplied? Saizen is generally provided to the patient via two means: HGH Direct Injection For patients who are not interested in using the Saizen Delivery devices listed above, there is the option of simply delivering the Human Growth Hormone via needle and syringe. For patients who are interested in administering HGH in this way, Saizen is available in vials. Saizen vials are available in two different sizes. Both 5 milligram vials and 8.8 milligram vials are available. These vials contain lyophilized Bio-Synthetic Human Growth Hormone. HGH is highly sensitive in its normal form, and must be freeze-dried and hermetically sealed in order to survive periods of extended storage and transport. When the Saizen is ready to be used, the powdered HGH must be reconstituted with a diluent. The diluent is a sterilized, clear solution that does not interact with the HGH molecule and can deliver the medication into subcutaneous tissue. HGH Cartridge Delivery For patients who wish to use delivery devices such as those listed above, Merck-Serono provides Saizen HGH Cartridges which are designed especially to be used with Saizen Human Growth Hormone Administration Devices. Saizen cartridges contain both lyophilized Human Growth Hormone and the sterilized diluent, separated by a small barrier. When you are ready to use the Saizen HGH Cartridge in one of the devices listed above, you will insert the cartridge into the device and follow the instructions provided with the device in order to combine and reconstitute the solution. After the cartridge of Human Growth Hormone has been activated and given time to fully hydrate, the solution is ready for injection. There are a few different options for the Saizen Cartridge, and these options are dependent upon both the size and strength of your individual dose. Saizen Questions At what Temperature Should Saizen be Stored? Like all forms of Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone, Saizen must be properly stored in order to remain potent. Lyophilized Saizen which has not been combined with diluent can be safely stored at room temperature (between 59 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit). After reconstitution, Saizen should always be refrigerated, except when it is immediately going to be used for injection. Reconstituted Saizen HGH should be stored between temperatures of 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit. Does Saizen Contain Preservatives? Saizen does contain preservatives in order to maximize the length of time that HGH is stable and usable. The vial form of Saizen contains benzyl alcohol, and the cartridge form of Saizen contains metacresol. How Often Should I Take Saizen Injections? The frequency with which you administer HGH Hormone Injections is completely dependent upon your physician’s advice. Generally, injections are delivered once daily, just before bed, but there are a number of other options available which will not have a negative effect on your therapy. Nightly injections are thought to have the most beneficial effect on sleep and the cortisol cycle. Some prefer to take their doses early in the morning, or before engaging in exercise. Injecting before exercise is believed by some to increase the effectiveness of exercise, reducing fatigue and feeling of exhaustion. Some physicians even recommend that certain patients take two small doses each day rather than one larger dose once per day. It all depends on your age, goals, and needs as a patient. What Are Saizen’s Side-Effects? The majority of patients will suffer from no side effects, or only the most minor symptoms. The most common symptoms are injection site irritation and possible headaches. Adult patients may rarely experience increased blood sugar, joint pain, and swelling as a result of Saizen. If any of these symptoms occur, please talk to your doctor.
We are available to speak with you today: Friday, January 17, 2014 Free Medical Consultation: 1-800-996-9664 Sermorelin is a synthetic drug which is derived from GH-RH, which is also known as Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone. GH-RH is the hormone responsible for the production of Human Growth Hormone, commonly referred to as HGH. GH-RH is secreted by the hypothalamus and functions as a chemical messenger which sends the signal to the pituitary to secrete more Human Growth Hormone to be delivered throughout the body. Sermorelin is not naturally produced by the human body, but it is functionally identical to Growth-Hormone Releasing Hormone produced by the human body. Sermorelin contains the same initial 44 proteins that are present in GH-RH, and scientists and researchers have discovered that this truncated version of Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone is the shortest known derivative that produces an identical effect upon the body as GH-RH, which is to enhance pituitary secretion of HGH. In our preteen and early teenage years, Human Growth Hormone is primarily responsible for the increase in growth rate associated with puberty. Children that suffer from a deficiency in Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone do not produce sufficient levels of Human Growth Hormone and therefore do not grow at the same rate as their peers. Human beings complete the process of normal growth and reach their final adult height after the epiphyseal plates of their long bones close at the end of puberty. After this point, the role of Human Growth Hormone changes, yet the role of GH-RH remains the same. After puberty, the body needs to produce sufficient levels of Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone that allow the body to secrete the HGH that it needs to sustain itself at peak condition, allowing us to enjoy maximum vitality and health. GH-RH allows the body to function optimally as it was meant to function. Unfortunately, production of Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone by the pituitary drops as we age, and this reduction in endogenous production of GH-RH is directly correlated with reduced release of Human Growth Hormone, which inevitably leads to a rapidly sped up aging process. At age twenty, the human body produces an optimal level of adult Human Growth Hormonearound five hundred micrograms each day. By the time we reach our late twenties to early thirties, the levels of endogenous Human Growth Hormone that we produce decreases at a seemingly marginal rate of one to two percent each year. Over time, however, this constant decline accumulates, leaving our bodies grossly deficient in Human Growth Hormone. By the time we reach the age of eighty, the human body only secretes around sixty micrograms of Human Growth Hormone dailyoften even less! In otherwise healthy adults, an HGH level of around two hundred micrograms is considered low. The effects of Human Growth Hormone Deficiency begin to become more pronounced as we enter our late thirties and early forties. At this point, our deficiency in Human Growth Hormone begins to greatly under-perform and our bodies start to age more rapidly. Rapid aging is not inevitable, however. And Sermorelin Therapy is a fantastic means by which to alleviate the effects of age in away that allows us to grow old in a healthy way that does not take from us our vitality. Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy is effective at treating Human Growth Hormone Deficiency, but it may not be the most efficient way to restore optimal hormone production. It may only be covering up an underlying problem.
Every single week will will update this web site with the newest information, research, science, medicine and products associated with Sermorelin Injections. We intend to provide you with the latest knowledge about Sermorelin sermorelin medical treatments, and also information about sermorelin scams, so you can see what companies are promoting fake sermorelin, so you can avoid them. What are Sermorelin Acetate Injections? Initially developed decades ago, Sermorelin Acetate is an analogue of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) or a shortened peptide of the 44 amino acids of GHRH reduced to 29 amino acids. Why should one inject only the 29 amino acid chain version to stimulate the human body, instead of the 44 amino acids our hypothalamus naturally produces? Because the 29 amino acid chain is the minimum necessary for Growth Hormone (HGH) stimulation by the pituitary gland and its easier and more affordable to make thus saving you money on your Sermorelin shots. Sometimes when compounding Sermorelin Acetate shots, GHRP-6 is added to the mixture when requested, this is another growth hormone releasing factor. The goal of these kinds of peptide and secretegogue shots are to stimulate Human Growth Hormone production in the body. The medical term for a hormone that stimulates another hormone is secretegogue, and sermorelin is a secretegogue of HGH, in the same way that HGH is a secretegogue of IGF-1 or Insulin-like Growth Factor 1, also called somatomedin C. Hopefully your eyes havent glazed over from all these complex terms, from here on out everything will be put in more simple language, laypersons or laymans terms. What is the Sermorelin treatment and HGH Injection Connection HGH Human Growth Hormone (Growth Hormone) is secreted the most at night when one is in the deepest of REM sleep (usually just before dawn), but Growth Hormone is also released during the entire 24 hour day cycle in small spikes. HGH is critical in maintaining the organs and tissues in our body, because it stimulates regeneration, and thus without it, we are fall apart, and experience symptoms of age related disease more rapidly as they accumulate. HGH levels are highest during youth and puberty, but then decline once our body has reached it mature size, and HGH production summits in our youth. When we reach our 30 to 40 range, the decline of hgh accelerates at a rough loss of 15% a decade or about 1 to 2 percent each and every calendar year that passes. At the age of 40, our hgh levels are less than half of what they were when we were in our early 20s. By using growth hormone releasing factors and peptides, or growth hormone releasing hormone stimulation via the form of sermorelin shots, before one goes to bed, the production of hgh during the sleep cycle is dramatically improved. Sleep is when we regenerate our bodies. With higher release of hgh during our sleep, we tend to wake up more rejuvenated the next day, our bodies feel more connected, tighter, younger, our minds crisp and energetic, but the good news is sermorelin injections are much more affordable than HGH injections. More people are turning to sermorelin injections each and every day, because the cost is more affordable. The patients who report the best results with a hormone treatment program for men or women, do sermorelin and testosterone injections in conjunction. If you would like to learn more about the anti-aging properties of Sermorelin injections contact the Conscious Evolution Medical Institute of Hormone Treatment for Men and Women. What are the Benefits of Sermorelin injections? The benefits of sermorelin acetate injections are the same as with hgh shots, but sermorelin works much better with the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and liver complex, than HGH. The most outward visible benefits of sermorelin treatments include tighter, softer and plumper, supple skin your skin will look more like it did when you were younger. With Sermorelin injections Wrinkles decline, skin sagging is reduced and thin skin firms up and holds more water, as skin cells were generally, when one is at a younger age. Some have reported that age spots decline with sermorelin shots as well. People tend to report a renewed sense of vitality and mental clarity with sermorelin, alleviating many of the health problems and maladies associated with aging. Weight loss, and muscle development comes with sermorelin shots too, as it causes the metabolism to increase and one can burn fat more easily and develop muscle, if one incorporates an exercise program. How does one determine the dosage of Sermorelin? A simple blood test in the form of a hormone panel for men and women, is all that is required to determine how much injectable sermorelin you should use during a hormone replacement program. Sermorelin injections are typically done 5 days a week in what is called 5 days on and two days off. The injections are typically done at night time, and the patient should go to sleep on an empty stomach for the maximum benefits. Do not consume sugar or dairy before sleeping, as these items can interfere with your hgh production. Remember to always keep your sermorelin stored in the refrigerator, not on the door, but in a safe spot, where it wont get bumped into or rattled around. You might also want to avoid putting it anywhere in the refrigerator where it is the coldest, if there is a risk of freezing. In other words there are some spots in refrigerators that have a higher risk of freezing than other areas of the same refrigerator, and we are not talking about the freezer, but the actual refrigerator. There are places in refrigerators that are colder than other places, so keep that in mind. Hormone Injections for Adult Men and Women

Nutropin Hormone Replacement Therapy If you are over the age of thirty, you may not fully recognize how Human Growth Hormone Deficiency can impact the body. In our early development, all the way through our teenage years, the primary function of HGH is to help us grow taller and help us develop into healthy adults. But did you know that Growth Hormone Levels naturally impact health at all stages of the life span? If you are thinking about choosing Nutropin for the treatment of HGH Deficiency, the goal of this article is to help you understand Nutropin HGH Therapy and how it can benefit and improve your life. Although it is incredibly important to discuss these issues and medical treatments with a qualified physician, it is beneficial to both you and your doctor that you are as fully informed as possible. Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding Nutropin Injection Treatments. Nutropin FAQ What is Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency? Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency (abbreviated AGHD) is a medical condition that arises when the Human Pituitary Gland (located near the base of the brain) does not naturally release enough Human Growth Hormone. This medical issue is also sometimes referred to as Somatotropin Deficiency. What Causes AGHD? In adulthood, there a number of reasons why GH Levels can become lower than normal. Some of these reasons are the result of medical illnesses. For example: Tumors of the Pituitary Gland can alter the normal physiological release of hormones, including Biological HGH. Surgery in or around the Pituitary can damage the gland, reducing or eliminating its capacity to produce Growth Hormone. Cancer Radiation Treatments can render Somatotrophs inside the Pituitary Gland nonfunctional. Head injuries such as severe concussions can damage the pituitary as well, due to both blunt force trauma and swelling. In addition to these medical causes of Low HGH, the body slowly begins to lose its ability to produce Endogenous Human Growth Hormone as a natural result of aging. Although not pathological, this can still severely limit human health and potential, and many patients choose Nutropin or other forms of HGH Replacement in order to alleviate the effects of this natural deficiency. What Are the Types of HGH Deficiency? Adults with Low Human Growth Hormone Levels can generally be split into two primary groups: Most Adults develop Growth Hormone Deficiency during adulthood, as a result of Natural Physiological HGH Decline, or as a result of medical issues during adulthood. These patients are considered to have Adult-onset HGH Deficiency. Some patients have experienced Issues with HGH Secretion their entire lives. These patients have what is called Childhood-onset Human Growth Hormone Deficiency. The difference between the two forms of deficiency share some similarity between Type-One and Type-Two Diabetes. Some patients are just born with the issue, and others develop it during adulthood for a variety of reasons. How can Nutropin HGH Treatments Benefit Me as an Adult? Even though HGH is the most important requirement for growth and development, most potently during puberty, the human body needs Human Growth Hormone throughout the lifespan. Just because our bodies have stopped growing in height doesn’t mean that the growth stimulating effects of the hormone are no longer beneficial in adulthood. Medical researchers and clinical scientists have found that Somatotropin Deficiency can lead to numerous physiological issues, many of which are related to the aging process, including: Increased Body-fat Decreased Muscle Mass Fuzzy Memory Hindered Mental Cognition Poor Cholesterol Low Energy Weakened Immune System Increased Injury Rehabilitation Time Sleeping Disorder I’m Taking Other Medications for Hormone Optimization. Why Should I also Consider Nutropin Injections? Dependent upon the root cause of Adult-Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency, patients may be taking other Hormone Replacement Therapies in addition to HGH. Although the Pituitary Gland is most widely recognized for the release of Endogenous HGH, the Pituitary is also responsible for the release of a number of different hormones as well. Sometimes issues with the Hypothalamus also contribute to symptoms related to Growth Hormone Deficiency. All hormones released by the pituitary are delivered through the body via the circulatory system. After the Pituitary Gland releases hormones into the blood, each hormone circulates to different target organs or tissues in order to accomplish particular important goals. Human Growth Hormone is released by the pituitary and is responsible for a number of different vital functions, including: Childhood Growth Muscle Development Weight Control Healthy Sleep Mental and Cognitive Optimization Energy Maintenance and Fatigue Reduction Improved Cholesterol Profile Although Human Growth Hormone produces a number of benefits and performs many vital functions, other hormones released by the pituitary also impact physical health in ways that alter the release and benefits provided by HGH. It is important to discuss any and all medications that you are taking with a medical specialist in order to ensure that Nutropin Growth Hormone Injections are right for you. In some cases, your medications may not permit you to use this therapy. In other cases, medications that you are taking may simply lead your Hormone Specialist to alter your dosage in order to optimize your HGH Benefits. It is also important to inform your Prescribing Growth Hormone Physician about any supplements you take or vitamin regimens you engage in. Human Growth Hormone HRT is usually combined with Dietary and Nutritional Guidelines in order to increase the effectiveness of treatment, and your current health choices can help your doctor tailor your HGH Plan in ways that can help you get the most out of therapy. What are the Forms of Adult-Onset GH Deficiency? There are two forms of Adult Onset HGH Deficiency, and there are different ways to diagnose each form of deficiency: One form of Growth Hormone Deficiency is the result of a direct malfunction of the Pituitary Gland. This is the rarer cause of Low HGH Levels, and this form of deficiency is normally caused by health conditions which have hindered the body’s ability to produce natural levels of Human Growth Hormone. Nutropin Hormone Replacement Therapy naturally restores Normal Hormone Levels by directly replacing HGH that the pituitary is unable to secrete properly on its own. A second type of Growth Hormone Deficiency is the result of the reduced function of the Hypothalamus. Low Levels of HGH are rarely caused directly by medical complications arising from the Hypothalamus, but Age-Related HGH Decline is a direct result of changes it Hypothalamic function that occur in adults over the age of thirty. As we enter our thirties, the Hypothalamus begins releasing less and less Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone (also known as GH-RH). This intermediary hormone is the direct precursor of Human Growth Hormone, and, for reasons not fully understood by Endocrine Scientists, declined release of GH-RH is a direct cause of Adult GH Deficiency. How is Adult Human Growth Hormone Deficiency Diagnosed? Growth Hormone Deficiency directly caused by Pituitary malfunction can be diagnosed using a method known as the GH Stimulation. With this test, your physician will use GH-RH or another chemical such as Arginine in order to directly stimulate the pituitary gland to release HGH. HGH Deficiency involving a healthy pituitary gland can be diagnosed by testing the blood stream for a hormone known as Insulin-like Growth Factor One (IGF-1). Although Human Growth Hormone quickly dissipates from the blood stream, making natural production hard to track, IGF-1 stays in the blood stream for a longer period of time, making it a more useful barometer for your innate HGH Production. How Can I Be Diagnosed with Low Growth Hormone? In order to be diagnosed with Chronically Low HGH Levels, you must both have a demonstrably reduced ability to secrete Human Growth Hormone, and you must also be symptomatic. If you experienced Youth-Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency as a child, you will need to show your physician documentation to prove your ongoing deficiency. What Pituitary Issues can Lead to Adult HGH Deficiency? In adults, Low Levels of Growth Hormone can be the direct result of damage to the pituitary, or diseases which hinder the function of the gland. In addition to this, pituitary tumors can lead to Growth Hormone Deficiency, the most common of which is a pituitary adenoma. Direct damage to the brain as a result of surgery, trauma, and internal bleeding can also reduce the function of the pituitary. Radiation can also limit the effectiveness of the pituitary gland. Why did my Medical Specialist Request a DEXA Scan Before Prescribing Nutropin Shots? DEXA Scans have the ability to monitor body composition. One of the most significant symptoms of HGH Deficiency is a reduction in bone density, and the Dual-Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry Scan can be used to quickly and vividly show the health of a patients bones. DEXA Scans are also able to provide other information such as your personal Body-Fat Ratio, highlighting the percentage of Lean Muscle to Body Fat in your body. By monitoring fat, muscle, and bone density, DEXA Scans allow your physician to monitor the benefits of your treatment by comparing before and after pictures which will track the effectiveness of your individualized Nutropin Hormone Therapy.
