Human growth hormoneHuman growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally by the pituitary gland to help promote growth during childhood and sustain organs and tissues throughout life, until around the age of 40, when the amount released is reduced.
Synthetic human growth hormone is only available by prescription through a muscle injection. The synthetic human growth hormone is approved for adults with a true shortage of this natural hormone, or for children with short stature, Prader-Willi syndrome, Turnerís syndrome or kidney failure.
Currently, there is a high interest in HGH as an age reducer to bring back a youthful appearance in aging adults. Websites are claiming to offer oral sprays and natural HGH releasers that increase HGH in the body, though there are still many tests and studies being done to show the effectiveness of this hormone and the possible side effects.
