What is human growth hormone?

Secreted by the pituitary gland, the human growth hormone; as the name implies, is the hormone that promotes linear growth in human beings from childhood through their adolescent stage. Naturally, when we stop growing, the level of this hormone in our systems declines sharply; and is hardly traceable in mature adults.

How does HGH affect the body in young adults?

Discovered in the early 1920’s, HGH (Human Growth Hormones) was isolated for the first time in 1956 in the form of Somatotropin.  Naturally produced in the pituitary gland by the stimulation of the hypothalamus, this hormone produces the following effects in the body of young adults between the ages 20-30:

  • HGH promotes the synthesis of new muscle tissue, and the repair of torn or damaged ones.
  • Researches have also discovered that HGH promotes the metabolism of body fat for the release of energy.
  • It promotes sound sleep, especially during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage.
  • It is also know to enhance sexual performance.
  • It helps to strengthen the bones.
  • It promotes healthy heart and kidneys.



Unlike testosterone and its derivative, HGH is not androgenic and does not cause side effects like aromatization when administered in trace amounts. 

What is the normal concentration the GH in adult humans? How to get HGH?

In healthy adult humans, optimum concentration of HGH in the bloodstream is 1.0-1.5mg. This translates to around 5 nano grams/milliliter of blood in male adults and about twice the amount in females.
Drops in the levels of HGH can be improved naturally through body building activities like intensive training, adequate rest, healthy diet, and supplementation.

What are the available options for boosting HGH concentration in adults?

Oral Sprays: HGH oral and nasal sprays are very common in the market and are believed to be effective. Unfortunately, research has shown that this hormone is made up of highly unstable molecules, and as such, is not suitable for sublingual administration. Hence, their efficacy is is not as high as believed.

Injections: HGH injections are commonly used by athletes to improve performance. However, not only are they expensive, they are also known to have adverse side effects like enlargement of the vital organs, the face , and the limbs, resulting in heart disease, kidney failure, and diabetes, to mention but a few. Hence, unless otherwise prescribed, these injections are unsafe for human consumption.

Natural Supplements: natural HGH supplements come in the form of oral pills that are not unlike vitamin supplements. They work by stimulating the pituitary gland to boost HGH production in the body. They are particularly active during sleep when the body is at rest, and are best taken before going to bed at night. They are very safe and highly effective, making them the best option for you at any time. 


HGH is filled with a lot of potentials for boosting all facets of physical activities in adults. However, there are a lot of restrictions about the administration of this hormone, especially in regard to administration without any form of medical guidance. Although there are a lot of ongoing agitations for the lifting of most of these restrictions, caution needs to be applied when taking HGH supplements. For obvious reasons, it is not advisable to take HGH sprays and injections, especially without medical guidance. Even if there is a need for boosting HGH levels in the body, natural supplements will always be your best option.
