Growth hormone, or somatotropin, is a collective name for a number of hormones that are responsible in general for body growth. And, first of all, for the growth in the literal sense-that is, the growth hormone stimulates the growth of bones. That is why the large secretion and the highest concentration in the blood of this hormone falls on the infant and children's period. In the future the level of secretion of somathropin steadily decreases.
Growth hormone affects almost all metabolic processes in the body-its role is very high in protein, carbohydrate, fat and mineral metabolism, because for the growth of the bones need to be active in the areas of bone growth of a number of minerals (eg, calcium) , the growth of muscles holding bones, etc., is also important.
With the cessation of bone growth in 20-25 years, the surplus of growth hormone becomes particularly dangerous for the body, because under its influence the processes that cause the violation of the proportions of the skeleton in some areas (face, feet, hands, etc.). In order that this does not happen, the body has mechanisms, lowering both concentration in the blood of the growth hormone, and the level of its secretion. In particular, the increase in the concentration of somathropin causes the activation of gluconeogenesis, leading to an increase in blood glucose levels and, as a response, increased insulin secretion. Insulin is the antagonist of growth hormone in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. In addition, the high concentration of somathropin leads to increased production of somatostatin, suppressing its secretion.
In addition to bone growth, growth hormone increases muscle growth, both by improving transport in muscle cells amino acids, and by stimulating protein synthesis processes.
Interestingly, the stimulation of muscle growth by HGH has a somewhat virtual character, since cell growth occurs primarily due to the accumulation of water and therefore there is no increase in strength and endurance. So (given the role of somatotropin (HGH) in splitting fats) increasing muscle mass by means of HGH is important to achieve a beautiful relief, but useless in power sports such as weightlifting and powerlifting.
It is also important that anabolic effects are only possible in the presence of insulin and testosterone, with their deficiency hormone growth does not have anabolic action.
Somatotropin contributes to the activation of fat metabolism, prevents the growth of fat tissue, accelerates the splitting of fats, and thus helps to reduce the weight of adipose tissue, in connection with which the growing muscle mass is drier.
The decrease of secretion of growth hormone in mature and especially old age entails a number of negative effects – lowering of immunity, propensity to accumulation of fat, weakening of processes of protein synthesis and degradation of muscle tissue.
This possibility exists, as a number of preparations containing synthetic somatotropin are developed. However, the intake of exogenous growth hormone has a number of side effects. Above all, the increase in somathropin concentration causes the rise of concentration glucose in the blood, thus exerting a large strain on the pancreas, Vyrabatyvajushhuju insulin to reduce the level of sugar and somatostatin for oppression of secretion Growth hormone. Thus, the intake of drugs containing growth hormone can lead to diabetes mellitus and pancreatic diseases, as well as disrupt the thyroid gland, cause the development of arterial hypertension and much more. And this is just the immediate and direct negative effects of the additional intake of somathropin. Not to mention that the drugs with growth hormone are very expensive and therefore actively counterfeited.
Therefore, we strongly recommend: Do not put experiments on yourself, risking to completely adjust the hormonal balance in the body and come to the need for serious treatment.
If you decide to take drugs with HGH-be sure to consult an experienced endocrinologist, and accept somatotropin only under his supervision, following his recommendations.
We, as advocates of a healthy way of life, will stop on ways of natural increase of secretion of growth hormone. It is known that the highest peak of secretion of somatotropin (HGH) falls on the first half hour-an hour after falling asleep. In addition, it is important that increased physical activity also stimulates the production of growth hormone.
From here we can draw a conclusion about how to naturally increase the secretion of somatotropin (HGH) by your body.
Do not reduce the natural secretion of the use of foods that lead to an increase in blood glucose and fatty acids. In practice it means to abstain from fatty and sweet (and in general from simple carbohydrates).
Provide your body with a calm and comfortable sleep. Rest will contribute to recovery after training and active secretion of somatotropin (HGH).
Of course, actively train. This is the main necessary condition, ensuring both the disposal of excess fat and the growth of muscle mass with somatotropin (HGH).
If you want more-try to take more products with high amino acids, positively influencing the development of growth hormone-arginine, ornithine, glutamine, lysine. It is possible to try such food additives as creatine (stimulates development of insulin factor of growth of IGF-1) and GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid stimulates development of growth hormone).
