Hormones regulate and repair our bodies, making them vital to our systems. When we are young, hormones are plentiful and work together to keep the various bodily functions balanced. Good communication between the hormones keeps our bodies regulated. As we age, hormone levels naturally decrease, slowing communication down and making it so the endocrine system does not respond as well to the body's needs. The human growth hormone (HGH) is one of the most important hormones affected by aging.
Human growth hormone (HGH) is a protein-based peptide hormone. It stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in humans. Human growth hormone is synthesized, stored, and secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. During youth, ample amounts of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) is produced so the pituitary is able to provide the body with sufficient growth hormone to sustain health, vitality and otherwise normal aspects of form and function. GHRH declines with age, causing reduced production and secretion of pituitary HGH and thereby increasing the result of adult growth hormone insufficiency (AGHD).
Symptoms of low levels of growth hormone:
- Low energy
- Decreased sense of well-being
- Decreased muscle mass or strength
- Decreased blood levels of IGF-1
- Poor sleep quality
- Increased body fat
- Mood swings
- Difficulty concentrating
- Lack of drive or desire to exercise
- Poor healing or weakened immune system
