HGH Gel Q & A
What is human growth hormone?
Throughout your childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood, your pituitary gland (the small gland at the base of your brain) creates ample amounts of HGH. This hormone helps you grow and supports a number of your body’s most important processes during that growth, including:
- The metabolism of sugar and fat
- The regulation of muscle and bone growth
- The regulation of your body fluids
In fact, HGH has long been produced synthetically and offered as a medication to help children with stunted growth. It’s also prescribed to adults with HGH deficiency. In those adults, the introduction of HGH into the body has been shown to:
- Increase muscle mass
- Increase bone density
- Decrease fat
What are the benefits of HGH?
In your mid 20s, your body slows its production of HGH and aging starts to take hold. Many scientists link the most unwanted parts of aging to this decrease in HGH production. Studies connect increased HGH levels to improved:
- Muscle mass
- Bone density
- Athletic endurance
- Weight-loss results
- Hair, skin, and nail health
In short, HGH has the potential to reverse the signs of aging, helping you live a more youthful and vibrant life regardless of your age.
How do I take HGH?
While HGH is available in pill form, its benefits are limited when taken this way. The enzymes in your saliva and gut break down HGH, rendering it ineffective.
Instead, Dr. Stern offers HGH gel. You apply this gel topically just like you would any other lotion or cream. Your skin absorbs the HGH within ten minutes, introducing it directly into your bloodstream. This way, you get all of the benefits of HGH without the need for an injection.
The gel comes in a bottle with a pump so measuring your dosage is easy. Dr. Stern directs you on how many pumps to apply to your body and at what time of day to best address the symptoms of aging that you’re experiencing.
Apply the gel in areas where your skin is thinnest, like your inner arms, wrists, underarms, and behind your knees. For the best results, rotate the location where your apply your HGH gel.
