Hgh and Its function in Weight Loss

      Hgh stands for Human Growth Hormone, which is produced in the pituitary gland located at the base of the skull. Hgh is responsible for many bodily functions often associated with youth. This includes energy/vitality, the production of lean muscle mass, weight loss, bone density, sexual drive, tissue growth and other health benefits most often associated with being young. As we age, primarily beyond 30, the body's production of Hgh slows and so do the benefits that come with it.

Studies have been conducted with Hgh and have found that with the supplementation of Hgh in middle age men, that on average they lost 14% of their body fat while gaining almost 9% in lean muscle mass. They also noticed firmer skin and felt more energetic. It is not uncommon for people who take Hgh to claim they feel 10-20 years younger in many cases. Hgh is available through a doctors injections but there are also supplements available online that help your body to increase its natural levels of Hgh.
