An important factor contributing to the aging process is
the depletion of hgh / hGH / HGH (Human Growth Hormone) with
the passage of time.
Human growth hormone, a substance produced by the pituitary
glands, stimulates normal body development and growth by altering
chemical activity in the body cells.
Human growth hormone stimulates the production of protein
in muscle cells and the release of enegy from the breakdown
of fats. It is responsible for the strength, energy and vitality
of youth; the strong sexual drive, the soft and smooth skin,
the straight and supple limbs, the density of the bones, and
the firm and sculpted muscles.
Growth hormone is manufactured by the Pituitary gland, known
also as the master gland, the nerve center of the hormonal
system. During youth, the Pituitary releases an abundance
of human growth hormone; in fact, the production of human
growth hormone is consistent throughout one's adult life.
However, beginning with the 20’s, your pituitary begins
releasing less and less HGH into your system. This loss of
Human Growth Hormone to your body is considered to be the
beginning of the breakdown of body systems and functions,
leading to the onset of aging.
Between the ages of 21 and 60 the amount of HGH released
into the body is said to drop by 80% or more! At age 40 we
have 50% of the human growth hormone level of our youth.
Science has yet to discover why depletion of hgh occurs.But
the big question is whether this process of hormone depletion
can be halted and its effects reversed!
The age-related change in hormone levels is an area of continuous
research. One of the milestone findings, published in 'The
New England Journal of Medicine' as far back as 1990, following
Dr. Daniel Rudman's experiments with increasing the levels
of HGH in a test group, is quoted below,
"The effects of six months of human growth hormone
on lean body mass and adipose-tissue were equivalent in magnitude
to the changes incurred during 10-20 years of aging."
Another hormonal gland, the hypothalamus has as important
a contribution as the as the pituitary on the HGH supply chain.
One of the important activities of the hypothalamus is to
coordinate and control the hormonal secretions of the pituitary
gland. It does so through specialized nerve cells which secrete
other hormones called releasing factors (or releasers) into
the blood, which travel to the pituitary to signal the quantum
of growth hormone it should release.
The pituitary gland releases an amount of GH in direct proportion
to the amount of release hormone it receives. As we get older,
the hypothalamus sends out less and less "release hormone"
and consequently the pituitary releases less and less hGH
and your body starts to self distruct.
In fact, this very principle of hormonal flow, and the activity
of the chemicals we call 'releasers', seems to have been known
to the Himalayan people in ancient times, and forms the basis
of the Tibetan rejuvenation yoga and anti
aging technique. They seem to have known, 4000 years ago,
how to push the button that would cause the body to secrete
the releasers, rather than rely on artificial synthetic ones.
To stop the release of growth hormone, the hypothalamus secretes
a substance called 'somatostatin', which shuts down the release
of growth hormone. Lifestyle factors such as sleep deprivation,
stress and high levels of blood glucose also affect growth
The bulk of the HGH released goes to the liver where it stimulates
the release of a chemical called 'somatomedin-C, also known
as Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), one of the growth
factors produced by the body.The balance is channeled to other
HGH receiving sites in the body. Both IGF-1 and IGF-2 are
key components of anti-aging. IGF-1 works to repair cells,
promote growth, and regulate metabolism. IGF-2 maintains the
health of nerve tissue, and works to stimulate bone marrow
and bone growth. IGF-1 is the easiest to measure of all the
With advancing age, the pituitary builds up a store of human
growth hormone instead of releasing it into the system. So
how can the pituitary be induced to release enough of its
hGH to limit the aging process and reverse your biological
clock? There are a number of different ways. Factors that
induce more release of growth hormone include, a lower blood
glucose level, and exercise. Our recommendation is Tibetan
yoga rejuvenation technique.
Growth hormone supplementation is also a widely used strategy.
