MIAMI, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Human Growth Hormone, abbreviated as HGH, functions much like it sounds. The hormone stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and regeneration of bones and tissue in humans. Produced naturally by the pituitary gland, the hormone is a protein made out of 190 amino acids that is secreted into the bloodstream.
HGH was originally used as a prescription drug for both child and adult growth hormone deficiencies. Those who received the drug form of HGH benefited by growing properly. However, HGH can also be medically administered to athletes for other medical benefits as well.
The metabolism is a chemical, digestive process in the body that helps break down food into tissue, energy, and waste. Everyone has a certain metabolism rate where calories are used or burned off. HGH helps regulate the metabolism rate by building up protein, maintaining stable levels of blood sugar, and most notably, breaking down and utilizing fat. In relation to athletes, HGH will help reduce body fat.
Develops Lean Muscle
With the reduction in body fat, HGH will also help maintain and increase lean muscle tissue for athletes. According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, lean muscle mass increased by 8.8 percent for a group of older men who used the drug. The findings were similar for children and young adults in regard to the increase in lean body mass and the decrease in adipose-tissue (fat) mass.
