What is Aging?

We think of it as the progressive decline in mental and physical functioning and appearance, which is accompanied by an increase in susceptibility to chronic diseases. This is caused primarily by three factors:

Genetic inheritance
Declining hormone levels
Oxidative stress

We attack the aging process by improving the latter tow:


Balanced Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy
Key health promoting hormone levels begin to decrease by your mid-thirties, principal among which are growth hormone, DHEA, testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, and melatonin.

Best time to start therapy for women is in their forties to make the “pre-menopause transition to menopause much smoother. For men to reverse the well-documented decline in testosterone levels that starts in late thirties known as “andropause”.

Oxidative Stress Reduction
The natural metabolic processes of our bodies as well as the toxins in our environment subject us to the damaging effects of free radicals. These are highly toxic molecules that damage our DNA and proteins, making us susceptible to cancer, and corrode our arteries, increasing our risk of heart disease. In effect, they cause our bodies to “rust” just as oxygen does to iron. Antioxidants are our bodies’ natural defense against free radicals. TOP


 

What are hormones?

A hormone is a specific organic product of living cells that, transported by the bodily fluids, produces a specific effect on the activity of the cells remote from its point of origin. Such a product exerts a stimulatory or excitatory effect on a cell’s activity causing specific biologic effects. TOP

 

What is HGH?

HGH or human growth hormone is the hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland and is the principal hormone in the human body that is responsible for growth, cell regeneration and repair. It is produced throughout life with levels falling as we age. TOP

 

How does HGH work?

HGH is released by the anterior pituitary gland, usually in a pulsed way, with maximum release occurring during the early part of the night, thus ensuring maximal amounts available for cell and tissue regeneration and repair during sleep. Human growth hormone enters the circulation and arrives at other cells, particularly the liver, where it triggers the release of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1), an active substance which goes to all of the cells in the body and is taken up by receptors on these cells from whence messages are transmitted into the cells to encourage cell regeneration and repair. It is the elevation of the IGF-1 levels through HGH that produce the biochemical effects attributable to HGH release. TOP

 

How is the body's HGH level controlled?

As with all hormones in the human body, HGH levels are under the control of a "feedback loop" whereby the body constantly monitors the levels of any given hormone and adjusts them as needed. Somatostatin is another substance produced in the hypothalamus of the human brain just in front of the pituitary gland. It controls the levels of human growth hormone by switching off the release of HGH once maximal levels have been achieved. TOP

 

What happens if there is too much HGH available?

In humans excessive production of HGH due to a breakdown in the feedback pathway during youth and the growth period, produces gigantism known as acromegaly. Excessive levels later in life can lead to expansion of bones into large spongy bones as well as large weak muscles. Gigantism or acromegaly is rare and is clinically obvious. The huge majority of humans have normal feedback loops and mechanisms, and those with normal stature and size do not have excessive HGH levels. TOP

 

Can Secretagogues produce an excess of Human Growth Hormone?

Secretagogues such as HGH4me are the safest way to elevate HGH levels and therefore IGF-1 levels to the normal levels found in youth as they work entirely naturally by encouraging the release of HGH from the human anterior pituitary gland. HGH is produced throughout life but its release diminishes with age. The feedback loops, however, remain intact and secretagogues will not cause excessive release or excessive stimulation of the pituitary gland. This results from their natural mode of action using the body's own feedback loop. TOP

 

Does HGH4me contain any animal products?

No. HGH4me has been specifically formulated to contain only naturally-derived amino acids and other compounds none of which come from animal sources. TOP

 

Can HGH4me cause problems with drug interactions?

No. HGH4me is an entirely natural product which contains none of the other amino acids or substances that can cause interactions with drugs, other dietary supplements, vitamins or minerals. It is not a drug. TOP

 

Are there side effects that could be associated with taking HGH4me?

HGH4me is formulated in a specific way to encourage HGH release, there are no known side effects from taking this dietary supplement. Very occasionally individuals have experienced headache when first starting on the product and this is usually due to an insufficient fluid intake. It is suggested that individuals drink eight glasses of water per day whilst taking this product. TOP

 

Does the fluid intake have to be taken as water?

No. Provided that a reasonable amount of water is drunk daily, other fluids such as tea and coffee, fruit juices and flavoured drinks can substitute. However, the consumption of water is encouraged. Some of the other drinks such as caffeinated colas, coffee and tea all have diuretic effect which means that the body passes more water than when drinking plain water. TOP

 

If I am already taking thyroid medication or other forms of
hormone replacement therapy such as oestrogens,progestogens,
can I take HGH4me?

Yes, If individuals are already taking other medications, particularly those with a hormonal effect, elevating HGH levels to the norms of youth will have no detrimental effect and may have a benefit. Some studies have shown that thyroid secretion which is controlled by the release of thyroid-stimulating hormone from the pituitary, is also affected to some extent by HGH levels. There have been studies which have shown that treatment to elevate HGH levels can improve thyroid function, so in theory secretagogues such as HGH4me could act similarly. HGH is only part of the anti-aging story and many Medical Anti-aging Clinics will do a full hormone profile on individuals before recommending one particular supplement or a particular treatment as all of our hormones are involved in the balance of the body and its health and wellness.
