HGH & IGF-1 Therapy

If you’ve reached a certain age, you may already be aware of how unkind time can be to your body and appearance. Aging brings forth many less than desirable and inevitable changes to your overall health, such as lower energy and fatigue, a slower metabolism, increased body fat, decreased muscle mass, a lower libido, aging skin and more. While all of these symptoms are merely a natural result of getting older, they can also be caused by declining hormone production within the body.

Each hormone in your body plays a vital role in nearly every major bodily function, including your body’s growth. Aging, as well as naturally declining hormone levels, are associated with many unfavorable aging symptoms and health conditions. As a result, anti-aging specialists such as those at Body Symmetry MD have been utilizing Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Peptide therapy to help reverse and slow the onset of aging symptoms and restore the bodily deterioration that accompanies aging with great success.

What is Human Growth Hormone (HGH)?

While many glands within your body work to produce different hormones, the pea-sized pituitary gland located at the base of your brain directly below the hypothalamus is often considered to be the “master control gland”. This is largely in part due to the pituitary gland’s role in controlling the other glands hormone production within your body, as well as for producing and the hormone responsible for your growth, or HGH. During childhood and adolescence, the HGH levels produced and secreted at their highest levels to help promote healthy growth and development. As you get older, however, it is normal for these levels to decline with age when you have finished developing.

It is estimated that by the time an individual reaches middle-age, usually around the age of 40, both men and women alike will be producing about half of the HGH levels they created at the age of 20 or young adulthood. Your pituitary gland produces and releases HGH into your bloodstream while you are in the deep stages of sleep and works to bind to specific cell receptors throughout your body. HGH binds to receptors in the regions of the brain responsible for learning and memory as well as fat cells to help them release their contents and convert into energy. HGH also works to stimulate the liver to produce a powerful hormone known as insulin-like growth factor 1 or IGF-1. IGF-1 is responsible for promoting the growth of bone, cartilage and lean muscle mass in your body.

Who Can Benefit From HGH Peptide Therapy?

With so many functions in the body relying on HGH, even a small amount is critical for your body’s maintenance and wellbeing. However, even minuscule changes brought on by aging and declining HGH levels can have adverse effects on how well your body functions along with your overall quality of life. An HGH deficiency or declining levels in adults can contribute to the following unwanted symptoms as you get older:

  • Reduced cognitive function
  • Poor moods, anxiety or depression
  • Increased fat around the waist or midsection
  • Decreased lean muscle mass
  • Weak bones
  • Fatigue or low energy
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced libido
  • Brittle skin and nails

If you are experiencing any of these unwanted symptoms of aging and you are over the age of 40, HGH peptide therapy may be beneficial in helping to reverse signs of aging and allow you to feel like a younger version of yourself once again. By carefully analyzing your blood results, health history and personal goals, our physician-guided staff at Body Symmetry MD will help you determine if you are deficient in HGH and whether HGH peptide therapy can help you reach your personal goals.

What Results Can I Expect From HGH Peptide Therapy?

In adults, supplementing with HGH peptide therapy on a routine basis can aid in stimulating your pituitary gland to produce increased amounts of HGH naturally. By restoring your HGH levels to more optimal levels, patients will usually begin to experience improvements to signs of aging in as little as three to six months. While the results of HGH peptide therapy will vary from patient to patient, overall improvements from HGH therapy can increase upon longer or more extended periods of use. Some of the results observed from regular HGH peptide therapy injections can include:

  • Elimination of fatigue
  • Boosted energy and motivation levels
  • Improved workout performance
  • Shorter recovery times post-workout
  • Improved muscle tone and muscle mass
  • Decreased body fat
  • Improved metabolism
  • Stronger skin and nails
  • Increased sex drive or libido
  • Increased endurance and strength
  • More balanced and improved moods
  • Better sleep quality

It is essential for patients who undergo HGH peptide therapy to incorporate the treatment into an overall healthy lifestyle for the best results. Getting plenty of sleep, eating a healthy and balanced diet as well as exercising regularly are also crucial elements to a hormone deficiency treatment plan. At Body Symmetry MD we are passionate about comprehensive wellness and will work with you to design an effective growth hormone therapy plan to get you feeling like your best self.

IGF-1 Therapy

IGF-1 is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin that is produced in the liver. While IGF-1 plays an essential role in childhood and adolescent development, it continues to have constructive metabolic effects well into adulthood. IGF-1 is primarily responsible for promoting bone and muscle growth and strength. Lower than optimal levels of IGF-1 can be an indicator of a sluggish pituitary gland, which may contribute to a host of problems such as:

  • Difficulty maintaining lean muscle mass
  • Excess body fat
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Sagging skin, fine line and wrinkles
  • Poor bone density
  • Weakened immune system
  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Diminished vitality

In addition to utilizing HGH peptide therapy to help encourage the body to stimulate the production of IGF-1, our solutions to a specific IGF-1 deficiency at Body Symmetry MD in most cases can include the following medications for your therapy:

  • Sermorelin Acetate
  • Sermorelin with GHRP-2
  • Sermorelin with GHRP-6
  • Sermorelin with GHRP-2 & GHRP-6
  • IGF-1 LR-3

What Results Can I Expect From IGF-1 Therapy?

While the results of IGF-1 therapy can vary from patient to patient, overall improvements from IGF-1 treatment can increase upon longer or more extended periods of use. Some of the results observed from regular IGF-1 therapy injections can include:

  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Reduced body fat
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Increased skin density and collagen production
  • Improved bone density
  • Enhanced immune system and cardiovascular function
  • Improved pancreatic and liver function
  • Increased energy and vitality

Optimal levels of HGH and IGF-1 are a sign of good health and vitality, but even a slight drop in hormone levels can have adverse effects on bodily functions and age you faster.
