It is safe to say that the trend nowadays is to use thing in a way it is not supposed to be used. Using oil for food as an oil to intensify skin’s beauty, a tea you drink to rejuvenate the skin and similar scenarios, they are treated as innovations. Even hormones that are not supposedly used to be anti-aging are now used and marketed as such. Yes, what the article is referring to is the human growth hormone or HGH or Genf20 Plus.
What has been buzzling around the market now is that HGH can be of used to promote youthfulness despite age and even slow down aging. But many health care experts beg to argue, big time.
What is HGH for?
Somatotropin is a substance that is responsible for our maturation. The changes in our body from the time we were so tiny and cute up to the moment that we are ready to receive the toll of life on us, that’s adulthood, HGH plays a good role. The proper distribution of fat and muscles for us to determine if we are a boy or a girl, man or woman could be the better term, is brought about by somatotropin.
The stretching of our bone and the muscle’s ability to hold the body is defined by how good the HGH worked during our entry to adulthood. Indeed this hormone is crucial in one’s growth and development.
But the human mind tends to rationalize the functions of this hormone and suggest that it can do better than what it’s solely created for. Some professionals suggests that orally taken HGH will be able to increase muscle mass among elderly taking it, counter the effect of aging and even improve body fluid levels.
The Truth about the Myth

The hormone is indeed helpful if taken intra-muscular especially for those with special medical conditions like low hormone levels (Turner’s and Prader-Willi syndrome for instance) and even those with HIV and AIDS. But no concrete evidences have been shown yet on how HGH can help in being a poor anti-aging substance or a lame elixir of life.
