The Human Growth Hormone, a protein formulation, is secreted by the Adenohypophysis or the anterior part of the Pituitary Gland. This single chain, 191 amino acid, poly-peptide hormone, is naturally manufactured, stored, and released by the Somatotrophs (cells located in the anterior lobe of the Pituitary Gland). It encourages growth, and cell production and regeneration in humans by stimulating protein formation. HGH or the Human Growth Hormone is an anabolic, proteinaceous hormone, which is secreted by the Pituitary gland of the endocrinal system. Recent clinical studies have substantiated the crucial and pivotal role that HGH plays, in reversing the effects of ageing, boosting physical and mental health and giving an overall youthful and energetic life.
The Human Growth Hormone (also termed as Somatotrophin), commands the various functions of the body and hence, is the key hormone in the body. It stimulates tissue repair, governs the replacement of the cells, controls brain functions and the functioning of diverse enzymes.
The Human Growth Hormone serves several vital and essential functions in the body:
