What is human growth hormone? A protein-like substance, it is produced by the pituitary gland in the base of the brain. It plays a vital role in many of the body’s metabolic processes – too little in childhood leads to stunted growth, and too little in adult results in excess body fat, lack of lean muscle tissue, breakable bones and thin, wrinkle-prone skin. 	skin care with human growth hormone

As we know that the production of the hormone slows down as we grow older. By the age of 60, we make half as much HGH as we did at 20. The pharmaceutical industry originally obtained it by extracting it from the brains of dead humans (a risky process that meant some batches were contaminated with CJD, the human form of “mad cow” disease), but in 1985 it was produced synthetically.

Then, in 1990, a landmark clinical trial supported its ant aging effects. Dr Daniel Rudman’s study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that HGH reversed many of the biggest markers of aging – increasing skin thickness, reducing wrinkles and body fat, and increasing muscle mass by the equivalent of 10 to 20 years, in men in their sixties and seventies.

Successive studies suggested HGH also boosts libido, improves mental wellbeing, increases energy levels and metabolic rate. “Nearly 20,000 clinical studies conducted around the world document the broad benefits of pharmacological HGH therapy,” says Dr Ronald Klatz of the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine. “With HGH, the so-called signs of ageing can be reversed.”
