Science has already proven the function of natural human growth hormone in the growth and development of the different cells and tissues of the body. It is within this context that HGH is largely considered as the body’s natural substance that provides it with health, youthfulness, and strength.
What you have to know about HGH
The body naturally produces human growth hormone. This hormone is produced and secreted by the front lobe of the pituitary gland and is primarily composed of amino acids. The human growth hormone’s action can be categorized into two major parts: cellular growth and development and fat utilization. Human growth hormone acts on the different cells to facilitate their growth. This includes regulating their size as well as cellular division. These essentially make up tissues that clump together to form organs. In simple words, HGH ensures the optimum life cycle of each individual cell in the body. Additionally HGH ensures that all organs of your body reach their fullest potential both in structure and functionality.
Now cellular processes require energy. The task of building tissues and organs and ensuring that they all function optimally require tremendous amounts of energy. Cells need to eat and breathe oxygen in order to survive and perform the many things it needs to do. In the process of cellular growth, energy needs to be continually provided to the growing cells and tissues. The primary source of energy in the body is glucose from carbohydrates. In case the body runs out of energy to perform its body growing needs, it burns stored fat as fuel. HGH therefore, converts stored fat into usable energy to serve as fuel for the many processes related to cellular growth and development.
In other words, human growth hormone stimulates cells to grow which requires energy in order to perform many cellular processes. Fat is mobilized from its storage sites in order to fuel the cellular processes needed for growth.
To sum up the effects of human growth hormone in the body:
- Allows an individual to grow from being a small child to a full-grown adult, complete with fully functioning tissues and body organs.
- Increases the size and number of cells through mitotic division, ensuring the healthy transmission of genetic material from one cell to its offspring.
- Facilitates the differentiation of cells especially those in the bones and muscles in order to help these organs reach their fullest potentials.
- Facilitate the processes involved in the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
- Increases the uptake of amino acids by the body necessary for a variety of enzymatic and metabolic processes.
- Increases the synthesis of proteins for cellular and tissue growth.
- Decreases the oxidation or destruction of protein building blocks.
- Enhances the conversion, mobilization, and utilization of fatty cells for more efficient fat burning processes.
- Helps the body in regulating blood sugar levels within normal limits by producing Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 or IGF-1 which is essential for facilitating tissue repair and regeneration.
- Stimulates chondrocytes and osteoblasts to build, grow, and continuously develop bone tissues.
- Increases the retention of calcium in the body in order to strengthen the bone as well as improve the bone’s mineralization process.
- Increases the mass of muscles by increasing the individual histologic physiology of the muscle sarcomere.
- Helps the body in maintaining a stable internal balance, known as homeostasis.
- Reduces the uptake of glucose by the liver.
- Promotes and increases the synthesis and release of glucose from fat molecules by the liver in a process called gluconeogenesis.
- Helps the body in maintaining the structure and function of the Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas which is responsible for the synthesis and secretion of insulin and glucagon.
- Stimulates the different cells of the immune system by aiding in the development of important immunoglobulins as well as enhancing the efficiency of the phagocytic processes.
- Increases the conversion of tetraiodothyroglobulin into triiodothyroglobulin through the removal of one iodine molecule in order to enhance the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins in the body.
Overall, human growth hormone is essential for normal growth and development. Additionally, studies have shown that human growth hormone can play a central and key role in psychological health and emotional wellbeing. Studies have also shown that HGH can significantly boost energy levels thereby improving overall mood and ensuring a generally positive outlook in life. Its effects on cognition, particularly memory and learning, have also been studied extensively.
Without a doubt, human growth hormone is essential for optimum health and wellbeing. Not only is physical health ensured, mental and emotional health are also guaranteed.
