Can HGH Hormones Is Used to Delay Aging? A Surgeon is Testing the Theory

 A 55-year-old surgeon said in London that his research can help to overcome, or at least delay, the effects of aging. He said he can do it using injections of human growth hormone (HGH). The doctor claims to have injected HGH for 15 months and witnessed some promising results. Could this new treatment be the source of the everlasting youth of the 21st century?


 In an interview with the London Evening Standard last Tuesday, Doctor Mathew said he was very satisfied with the results of the treatment on his body: his skin is "brighter", he feels more "alive" and his libido is "on the rise". While experts line up to condemn his treatment for considering it dangerous, Mathew is not the only one to get excited about growth hormone. Actually, he is one of the many people who believe that HGH is the elixir of life.

Growth hormone is a substance produced by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain and is responsible for growth in childhood and, subsequently, a series of bodily functions that include many aspects of metabolism. For example, children who are deficient in this hormone are small and, in contrast, an excess of HGH in adulthood causes acromegaly, a form of gigantism.

In a normal, healthy person, HGH reaches a production peak in adolescence and then declines steadily until the total amount secreted by a 60-year-old man becomes exactly half that of a 20-year-old man. Many of the things we do not like about aging - increased body fat, brittle bones, thinner skin - are also characteristics of adults with growth hormone deficiency after brain trauma or removal of pituitary tumors.

So basically if the levels of the hgh hormone are kept on the same level as they are in youth, then the aging can be delayed.

But there are four major problems with the use of this hormone as the elixir of life. First, it is only effective if it is injected. Second, since it was originally made from human brain material, there was a risk of contracting the mad cow disease. However, that barrier was eliminated when the genetic technology allowed a safe production. Third, it is very expensive. You can check the prices on to get an idea. But the most important problem is this: if something has a biological effect, it is also capable of producing side effects.

Some were already known through the abuse of HGH by athletes like heart failure, diabetes, and cancer. But Mathew defends low doses and says they are "safe, like vitamin C".

One of its main effects is that it promotes insulin resistance - a key feature in diabetes. That insulin resistance causes several effects of aging and many argue that a drop in HGH levels, in fact, would protect us from insulin resistance.

With all the research going on HGH, let’s hope that someday scientists will be able to harness its positive effects and use it for the betterment of humanity.
