What is Human Growth Hormone?
Where Does hGH Come From?
What is human Growth hormone? Well, let’s start with the basics: Growth Hormone is the master hormone released by the pituitary gland. This peptide hormone is made up of 191 amino acids that form a long, single-chain polypeptide. Growth hormone is synthesized in the somatotropic cells, which, again, are found in the anterior pituitary gland. These cells are also responsible for storing and releasing the hormone. Growth hormone is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, development, and regeneration. The pituitary gland is the master gland of the endocrine system. It controls all the glands of the endocrine system. Your hormones keep your entire body and all its systems functioning. Hormones impact your weight, hair, and nails, as well as sex drive and attitude. It’s essential to know your hormone levels and whether they are in the normal range. You should also be aware of how they affect you and what you can do to ensure they are functioning optimally.
Sermorelin acetate is a natural active analog of growth hormone releasing factor, (GHR) which is a growth hormone-releasing. (Sermorelin) Is naturally releaser to stimulate production healthily by the pituitary gland. Sermorelin Therapy is not a human growth hormone, it is a hormone secretagogue, which means that it stimulates the pituitary gland to specific receptors to increase the production of HGH.
Growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRPs) are a family of synthetic peptides that stimulate GH secretion. Importantly, they have no structural similarity to sermorelin or GHRH; instead, they function via receptors in the pituitary gland and/or hypothalamus. At AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, we compound two different GHRPs (GHRP-2 and GHRP-6) into the sermorelin mixture. The resulting mixtures, sermorelin peptides GHRP2 and sermorelin peptides GHRP6, are particularly potent and effective GH-inducing agents that yield comparable results to typical yet considerably more expensive hGH therapy.
GHRP-2 is a synthetic analog of the peptide hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is a small 28 amino acid peptide that is produced by the stomach in response to hunger. It also activates the growth hormone secretagogue receptor (also known as the ghrelin receptor) to stimulate GH production and metabolism. GHRP-2 functions similarly to stimulate the hypothalamus and increase the production of endogenous GH from the pituitary gland; synthesis then slowly drops back to baseline by the third hour after administration. This more closely replicates the pulsatile nature of endogenous GH production, which makes it advantageous and potentially safer compared with synthetic HGH use.
GHRP-6 is a hexapeptide synthetic analog of met-enkephalin, which is an endogenous opioid growth factor; however, GHRP-6 does not exhibit opioid activity. GHRP-6 works similarly to GHRP-2; however, it is a first-generation GHRP that does not induce GH levels as strongly as GHRP-2. Instead, it promotes food intake by stimulating hunger and helps increase energy metabolism; therefore, it is good for patients that need to increase their food intake.
Our interest is to help answer the question, what is human Growth Hormone, in as simple and concise a format while making sure no important details are missed. Simply put, Growth Hormone, as is encompassed in the name, literally helped to grow you; every aspect of you. When growth hormone is released, it is metabolized by the liver and converted into what is known as IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor-1). This chemical invites the production of protein in the body and depending on your different stages of development, promotes the growth of your muscles, bones as well as all your organs. In fact, Growth Hormone is responsible for the growth of all the tissue in your body. It promotes the regeneration and production of cells in the body, as well as stimulates their healing.
HGH is produced by top pharmaceutical organizations as a bio-identical hormone. This is identical to what the body produces with the exception that there is no DNA association. Administering hGH therapy in the not-so-distant-past was nothing to take lightly. It needed to be extracted from the brain of cadavers. This antiquated process didn’t come without its unfortunate repercussions. Patients treated with this early form of hGH had abstract side effects. This process is no longer legal. Today, technology has advanced to the point that we are able to clone and produce a clean, exact, bio-identical replica of the HGH hormone in a laboratory. When you qualify for therapy with AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, you will be prescribed Brand hGH only. HGH cannot be produced in a simple lab. It cannot be compounded or cannot be ingested, as the molecule is too delicate and small. It would be immediately destroyed by the gastric process. Contact us at AAI Clinics so we can talk to you about how to know if you are obtaining real hGH or, how to qualify for this life-transforming program.
