Article Body:
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) or Somatotrophin is a protein which helps in
growth and cell production in animals and humans. It is the hormone which
is made naturally in the pituitary glands of humans. The pituitary gland
is deep inside the brain just behind the eye. The hormone is made in the
body throughout a person’s life but the developm ent of this hormone is
more when the person is young. The human growth Hormone is a microscopic
protein substance and is found secreted in short pulses after the
exercise and during first hours of sleep. The hormone plays a very
essential role in adult metabolism and growth of children.

The growth hormone as it indicates helps in th growth of the human body,
it stimulates the liver and other tissues which in turn stimulates the
growth of bone. The process of growing continues till the time when it
has to i.e till the time a person reaches adult height. But the role of
the growth hormone does not ends, then there will be normal level of
human growth hormone that will maintain the balance throughout lifetime.
Another function of Human Growth hormone is to c ontrol protein,
carbohydrate and fat metabolism, and stimulates the growth of muscle
tissue in cell reproduction. our lifestyle, diet, exercise, adequate
sleep, stress levels will have great impact on the growth hormone and its
capacity to function properly.

Normal growth and proper function will always keep the body fit but there
are condition when there is excessive growth of this hormone or
deficiency, both hampers the proper functioning of the body along with
some adverse effects. If the level of HGH is increased in the body it
results in Giantism in children where the growth is rapid and in
continuation. Whereas in adults it results in Acromegaly, a disease in
which the bones of the jaws, fingers and toes thickens which exerts
presure on nerves, insulin resistance or a person can suffer from a rare
form of type2 diabetes, this is not all a persom with increased growth
hormone can have weak muscles and reduced sexual function. This condition
is treated with medication which obstructs the release of human growth
hormone.

When there is deficiency of growth hormone it results in stunted growth
in children whereas the effects are mild in grown ups. They will
experience muscle weakness, fatigue or weariness and inability to
metabolize the fat. The deficiency of growth hormone can be treated with
the supplements of human growth hormone. But in more sereve conditions
the solution lies in surgery.

There are HGH injections ,HGH oral sprays and HGH supplements which are
meant to fulfull the requirement of human growth hormone when the body is
not able to produce it naturally. The growth hormone are said to be
working as anti aging process, but the more advanced studies reveal that
the evidence are inconclusive to prove that HGH reverse the process of
aging. Prolong use or regular application of growth hormone will
definitely have many side effects and long lasing ill effects on health.
