Growth Hormone’s Function
No matter if you’re an avid runner, weekend warrior, or just looking to get the most out of your body, we can help give you that competitive edge. Improve the way you feel and the way you recover safely while increasing your body’s growth hormone production.
Growth hormone (GH) is a hormone that is released from the pituitary gland which is located at the base of the brain. GH is essential for growth and development in humans, it allows us to grow to our adult height, develop muscle, promoting energy and development of proper cognitive function. In our early 20’s, when our body’s reach maturity, growth hormone levels decrease.
If GH levels are too high in humans we can develop a syndrome known as acromegaly which can cause increase thickness of the bones of the jaw, fingers and toes, resulting heaviness of the jaw and increased size of digits. This excessive growth can cause excessive pressure on the nerves (which can lead to carpel tunnel syndrome), muscle weakness, increased sweating, insulin resistance and reduced sexual function.
Growth Hormone vs. Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides
As noted above, excessive levels of growth hormone can cause a lot of negative side effects, which is why it is dangerous to directly replace growth hormone as we age. Luckily, growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) have been developed which act upon the pituitary gland. GHRP cause the pituitary to release GH in the body, but it also allows the body to regular GH levels so that they do not get too high. This allows us to safely increase GH levels with no risk of levels becoming too high.
The table below gives a comparison between GH and GHRP supplementation.
