I bet you made a long list of resolutions for 2020! Don’t fret if you feel behind; it’s only February! My guess is many of those resolutions center around feeling better physically and emotionally.
Maybe you want to:
Perhaps you are starting to notice the years ticking by and your body slowing down and changing. And, you’ve started seeking solutions. Right now, a popular solution for all of these “problems” is Human Growth Hormone (HGH).
But before you jump on the HGH bandwagon and start ordering products off the internet that are offering you what may be false hope, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty about HGH! Let’s take a look at an even better solution, HGH Peptide Therapy.
In this post, we will cover the basics of HGH and HGH peptides, followed by questions that I am frequently asked regarding the use of HGH peptides.
What Is HGH?
Natural HGH is produced by the pituitary gland. It incites growth in children and adolescents and helps regulate body fluids, body composition, sugar and fat metabolism, muscle and bone growth, and possibly heart function.
HGH production peaks around age 20 and then steadily declines. Levels drop by over 1% each year after age 30, which is why our bodies begin to show signs of aging.
Synthetic HGH is an active ingredient in many prescription drugs. The FDA has approved HGH for treating rare conditions like:
- Treating short stature of unknown cause
- Turner’s syndrome
- Prader-Willi syndrome
- Chronic kidney disease
- HGH deficiency or insufficiency
- Children born small for gestational age
- Short bowel syndrome
- Muscle-wasting associated with HIV/AIDS
- HGH deficiency due to rare pituitary tumors or their treatment
Although people have been using synthetic HGH as an anti-aging or wellness drug, these uses have not been approved by the FDA.
HGH is also expensive and has a wide range of side effects that can negatively impact natural HGH production and pituitary function over the long term. Unfortunately, many people are procuring the drug illegally from pharmacies that may not have their best interests in mind.
Use As Directed
It’s essential to use HGH only as directed by a healthcare provider, such as our practice.
Side effects of using HGH can include:
- Nerve, muscle, or joint pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- High cholesterol levels
- Numbness and tingling of the skin
- Increased risk of diabetes
- HGH can contribute to the growth of cancerous tumors
Here’s the Good News
If you are looking for an anti-aging or weight loss solution, you don’t have to use HGH. You can use HGH Peptide Therapy instead.
HGH peptides are a safer, more effective solution to treating low growth hormone levels. HGH Peptide Therapy has been proven to boost your own HGH levels, which will, in turn, slow the aging process.
What Are Peptides?
Peptides are made from amino acids. Some of these amino acid chains act like neurotransmitters, while others act like hormones.
They have numerous functions, but the important thing here is they naturally stimulate the pituitary gland to produce HGH. Many patients have found these higher HGH levels remain stable even after their treatment has been completed.
What Are Peptides Used to Treat?
Peptides can treat dozens of issues. The most common reason peptides are prescribed is to boost growth hormone for better recovery naturally. But peptides are also used to:
- GI and musculoskeletal inflammation
- Body fat through lipolysis (fat breakdown)
- Energy, Strength, and Stamina
- Muscle mass, definition, and endurance
- Your body’s ability to tan naturally
- Natural HGH production
What Are the Most Commonly Prescribed Peptides?
Peptides can be used alone or combined with other peptides to boost your own HGH levels. The most commonly prescribed peptides include:
These peptides all function in a similar manner to boost growth hormone production in your body.
How Long Do The Peptides Last?
Peptides can be injected daily or given orally. Although peptide therapy must be prescribed and customized by a healthcare provider, you can administer the shots at home using a tiny insulin needle once daily before bedtime.
It’s essential to administer the shot at bedtime because HGH is released at night time in young people and we want to mimic that process. Initially, you need to use it daily, but sometimes the frequency can be adjusted over time depending on your specific situation.
How Long Will It Take to Feel the Impacts?
After a few weeks of use, you should experience improved sleep and increased energy. If you are using it to decrease fat and improve muscle mass, expect to see results in 3-6 months.
How We Use HGH Peptide Therapy at Silhouette Health and Wellness?
HGH Peptide Therapy is a unique treatment that requires an in-depth consultation to customize for patient needs.
HGH Peptide Therapy is safe but only available under the guidance of a medical professional. While most patients experience zero to few side effects, we recommend a comprehensive consultation before treatment to asses any possible issues as well as to inform you of the process, what to expect, and what you will gain.
Although results may vary from patient to patient, clinical studies have shown HGH Peptide Therapy can lead to many physical and mental benefits, such as:
- Improved energy
- Increased lean body mass
- Fat reduction
- Improved bone density
- Increased vitality, strength, endurance
- Improved cardiovascular and immune function
- Better sleep quality
- Improved skin quality and higher collagen density
