History and Overview
Today’s bodybuilding market offers hundreds of supplements, steroids, pro-hormones, and HGH UK that help us age better and improve our physical appearance. However, none of these supplements escapes the controversy on whether they are safe or not, whether they have irreversible, damaging side effects, or whether their benefits outweigh the high price to pay for having a beautiful body. Today, we will have a look at another worldwide used muscle builder: HGH.
Growth Hormone was first discovered in the 1920s. However, it was not until 1956 that GH was successfully isolated from the human pituitary gland. Scientists started to harvest GH from cadavers; however, in 1981, they finally managed to synthesize the first HGH in a laboratory. The benefits of GH are outstanding: regeneration and cell growth, increasing bone density, enhancing muscle mass, and regulating body fluids
GH plays a crucial role in maintaining all the human tissue healthy, including vital organs or the brain. Therapeutically, this amazing growth-promoting factor is used in the treatment of numerous diseases, such as hormone deficiency or insufficiency, the Turner syndrome, poor growth generated by renal failure, the Prader-Willi syndrome, children born small, inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoporosis.
The amazing properties of this natural cutback gave birth to a new culture: the use of synthetic growth hormone supplements to delay some of those changes that inevitably occur with age, such as bone and muscle mass decreasing. Many people believe that HGH UK is capable of turning back the body’s aging clock.
What results can I expect?
Our bodies produce GH naturally. However, the GH production starts to decline as we age. After the age of 30, GH starts to decline by 25% every decade on average. At a rough calculation, by the time we hit 50, we are operating at around 25% of the body’s original capacity. If that didn’t happen, we would definitely live much longer, we would be significantly taller, and we would have a much better body composition. But, we can’t fight Mother Nature. Or can we?
Numerous researches have demonstrated that the effects of HGH on our system are remarkable:
• HGH UK enhances the synthesis of protein, thus supporting muscle recovery and repair.
• It improves the REM-stage sleep and produces more energy.
• It regulates body fluids, and bone and muscle growth.
• HGH builds stronger bones and maintains the duration and quality of vital organs.
• Stimulates the immune system.
• Tests conducted in people who suffer from obesity have demonstrated that it enhances the metabolism of body fat, converting it to energy. Many professional and amateur bodybuilders and athletes have used GH to maintain and increase lean mass while dieting.
•It improves the sexual performance
In the case of athletes, since it is not androgenic and has fewer side effects, HGH may be considered superior to testosterone or other similar derivatives.
How does it work?
The Growth hormone is a peptide hormone responsible for stimulating growth and cell reproduction and regeneration in both animals and humans. Athletes and bodybuilders use GH due to its ability to increase lean body mass, burn fat, strengthen ligaments and joints, shorten the recovery time, and speed up the healing of damaged tissue.
But GH is far from being a magic potion with incredible results in gaining muscle ass and decreasing bodyfat. Despite its proven amazing properties, if used alone, it is not a powerful anabolic agent. Testosterone, thyroid medication, or Insulin can be extremely helpful during a HGH run.
When using HGH, the body uses more Insulin, thyroid hormones, and Androgens. Used together, HGH and Testosterone can do wonders. HGH is known to stimulate bone formation as well as ligament regeneration, while the testosterone increases muscle mass and strengthens the bone.
How is it used and dosed?
Most chemicals can be taken in several ways. Usually, the generally accepted ‘proper’ administration is the one most people use. While this ‘proper’ method can work wonders for some, it may have little to no effect for others. In the case of HGH UK users, the performance depends mainly on each person’s liver capacity and general state. This is why experience should guide you through proper dosing. Obviously, it is recommended to start with the minimum dosage, which should not go above 4 IUs per day.
The most common administration method has been the subcutaneous injection. However, we are talking about a medical method used for GH-deficient children and adults.
In the case of athletes and bodybuilders, things are a little bit different. We are no longer talking about deficient patients, but about persons who expect GH to work in the body quickly and who wish to make the most of it. In these cases, the intramuscular (IM) method is definitely a better choice, as it reaches the user’s system faster and starts its action quicker. Taken orally, HGH tablets would be digested by the stomach before the body could even absorb them.
The optimal dosage would be 6 to 8 IU per day, divided into 2 doses and administered 5-7 hours apart. For example, one dose (3-4 IUs) could be taken after workout, while the other dose (the remaining 3-4 IUs) can be administered before going to bed.
HGH side effects
All drugs have their fair share of side effects. Extremely high doses of HGH used for prolonged periods of time might cause acromegaly (i.e. enlargement of bones, fingers, organs), which could lead to premature death.
Though there is no definitive evidence that HGH can cause the rapid growth of an existing cancer, it is wise not to use it if you have cancer. Since HGH helps the body regenerate faster and enhances cells growth, cancer could be accelerated by the use of HGH.
Among the most common side effects, we can highlight: middle ear infections, muscle and joint stiffness, fluid retention in the limbs, visible water retention, swelling of the ankles.
Can Human Growth Hormone make me lose my hair?
On the contrary! Though this is an aspect that is still stirring up controversies and that requires further investigation. Hair regeneration and growth are considered to be one of the many benefits of GH. So you’re safe!
Will it make me aggressive?
Aggression is considered an extremely rare symptom when using HGH. So NO, HGH is not very likely to make you aggressive. On the contrary, it may enhance your feeling of well-being and happiness.
Is it legal to use and buy HGH UK?
Just like steroids, HGH is considered a class C drug, which makes it illegal to sell in the UK. Under the British laws, HGH should be available only on medical prescription and should be used to treat severe growth conditions and disorders, such as Aids-related muscle wastage.
However, the possession for personal use is not illegal. But as always there is a black market for this kind of thing. So YES, you will not find it difficult to buy HGH in the UK, especially from on-line retailers and in-person dealers. HGH UK is easily found with some digging.
