Human Growth Hormone is an injectable hormone that can be administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly. When injected subcutaneously, HGH carries a bioavailability of approximately seventy-five percent. When injected intramuscularly, HGH carries a bioavailability of approximately sixty-three percent. The mode of administration will also affect the half-life of the Somatropin hormone. When injected subcutaneously, it will carry a half-life of approximately hours. When injected intramuscularly, it will carry a half-life of approximately hours. While this is a rather short half-life regardless of the mode of administration, keep in mind the total effects far outlast these numbers due to the pronounced and significant increases in IGF-1 production that stretch far past the twenty-four hour mark.
One of the most common questions asked about HGH is whether it can make users grow taller. Between the ages of about 12 and 18, your body is still growing. During this time, the administration of HGH can help you add inches to your height. As such, HGH is an essential part of therapy for children who have growth disorders such as dwarfism. However, between 18 and 21 years old, growth plates on your bones fuse together and essentially “lock” your height. Administering HGH may cause individual bones in your body to thicken, but it will not lengthen them.
Beginning at around the age of 20, growth hormone secretion drops by the rate of 15% every ten years, by 60 years your body secretes a quarter of its potential growth hormone production. Such a reduction, largely contributes to the speeding up of the aging process & is strongly associated aging symptoms including: cardiovascular health, body fat levels, osteoporosis, skin wrinkling, greying hair, poor energy levels, declining libido, reduced physical performance , decreased muscle & strength, psychological disorders, insomnia & more. HGH is known as the “master hormone” which controls sex hormones including testosterone & all other hormones produced by the glands in the body.
