Singanitropin or Human Growth Hormone (HGH), also known as Somatropin, is a hormone with anabolic effects, i.e. promotes muscle growth. This is a natural substance that is produced inside the human body to stimulate physical growth. It is this hormone that is responsible for the growth of children and adolescents into adults.
However, in our body, the level of growth hormone decreases with age: after 30 years, it decreases by 25% every ten years, reaching 25% of the original amount by the age of 60. In some opinion, if it did not decrease, then the average life expectancy would be 140 years old, people world be taller and their muscle mass would be bigger. This is the reasoning behind athletes taking synthetic growth hormone in order to improve muscle mass and performance.
The benefits of growth hormone are numerous. Despite the fact that it was discovered in the 1920s, even today studies periodically appear that talk about new possibilities for its use.
Growth hormone plays a very important role in building muscle mass: it counteracts the action of insulin (which prevents fat burning) and promotes muscle anabolism and the acquisition of “dry” muscle definition. It is involved in the processes of restoration and repair of muscle tissue. This is how muscle mass grows.
Growth hormone stimulates the use of fat as energy. Recent studies in overweight people have unequivocally confirmed this fact.
There are also known facts of the use of growth hormone by people on a diet who are trying to lose weight when a decrease in fat level was accompanied by an increase in muscle mass (in the absence of physical activity!).
Growth hormone enhances fat burning, as well as carbohydrate and protein metabolism, both in a hungry and full state. In a hungry state, the natural production of growth hormone for the oxidation of fats is increased to provide energy to protect against catabolism (a state of destruction of muscle cells, to use them as an energy source).
If HGH is used for recovery purposes only, then 1-3 IU can be used once daily. For performance enhancement, HGH is taken daily with an average dose being 4-6 IU. The common duration of use is anywhere from 6-24 weeks depending the user’s goals.
HGH causes growth in more than just the muscles, it causes growth in all organs of the body, except the eyes and brain. Some common side effects include joint pain, headache, flu-like symptoms and back pain. It may also increase blood sugar levels in individuals who do not have diabetes or glucose intolerance.
