Growth hormone, or HGH, is a popular therapeutic intervention for aging men and women globally. Unfortunately, many people are unfamiliar with the unique benefits HGH can have on the human body. Additionally, misinformation has led many to believe that HGH therapy is only suitable for older patients or those looking to gain muscle mass, like bodybuilders. Neither is true!
The truth is that growth hormone production peaks in our mid 20’s, and while growth hormone can help build muscle, it serves a greater purpose. Growth hormone is more of a metabolic hormone that’s responsible for many functions, like regulating energy (fat) reserves. One of the most potent benefits of HGH therapy is the loss of omental body fat, which is the inflammatory fat around the abdomen and organs. In addition to its inflammatory nature, omental fat is also linked to a risk for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
