At Westboro Spine and Holistic Health Center, we utilize a natural approach to help stimulate or boost the body`s production of HGH. A consultation with Dr. Moncton will determine if you may benefit from these adjunctive formulations. Hormone testing available in Westborough.
The #1 question…What is Human Growth Hormone (HGH)?
Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is produced by the pituitary gland in large amounts when we are young, but secretion falls off sharply as we age. Human Growth Hormone promotes tissue repair, cell regeneration in the bones, muscles and vital organs, and supports the immune system in combating infection and disease. HGH achieves this by improving movement of amino acids (the building blocks of cells and muscles) across cell membranes. As the body`s cells die off, HGH ensures that replacement cells are healthy and readily available. As we age, our HGH levels decline causing our cell replacement levels to reduce. HGH supplementation supports the body`s ability to self-repair and delay the aging process.
There are a variety of ways to increase your levels of HGH.
- Actual HGH replacement with injections of the recombinant DNA human growth hormone or of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). This procedure is performed by an MD usually specializing in Anti-aging Medicine.
- HGH secretagogues/precursors, substances that stimulate the brain to release more of the hormone that includes natural nutrient supplements.
- Homeopathic HGH preparations which can contain very small amounts of the actual HGH molecule, reported to act as secretagogue agents.
