Vitamin D3: The Miracle Vitamin that is so much more than a Vitamin
Research scientists continue to discover new benefits to vitamin D3. They have also discovered that vitamin D3 is technically not a vitamin, but a hormone…a very powerful hormone that can play many vital roles in maintaining your good health. This recent research has lead to the conclusion that vitamin D3 is more important than we ever believed. Let’s take a look at what vitamin D3 is, and the role it plays in your body.
One difference between vitamin D3 and other vitamins is this: We, along with others in the mammal kingdom, have the ability to create Vitamin D3 by exposing ourselves to direct sunlight. This was first noticed shortly after vitamin D was discovered in 1920. The decade of the 1920′s ushered in the Industrial Revolution, and witnessed large numbers of people moving into cities and working indoors, in dark, grimy factories. This contrasted greatly with their former rural work outdoors, where they were exposed to sunlight.
At the time, scientists were urgently seeking a cure for rickets, a debilitating bone disease that primarily affects children. Researchers noticed that those who lived in areas with less sunlight had a much higher rate of rickets than those in sunny climates.
The hypothesis was formulated, tested and proven: vitamin D is essential to the bone health of everyone, especially children. And the best source of this vitamin was thought to be the sun.
But there are a few problems with this sunlight exposure approach. For starters, scientists have established a direct link between excess sunlight and skin cancer.
Second, for those people who live in the northern latitudes, getting enough direct sunlight in the middle of a freezing winter is not an easy task. As you move farther from the equator, the angle of the sun increases. Why is this important? Because this results in less Ultraviolet-B rays that help you create adequate vitamin D levels. This is especially true in the winter months. Therefore, supplements are needed to fill in the gap.
Make sure you take the right kind of Vitamin D
Before we go any further, it is important to make crystal clear the type of vitamin D that we are referring to. There are two types of vitamin D available in supplements; vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (Ergocalciferol). The distinction is simple. Vitamin D2 is synthesized by plants, while vitamin D3 is synthesized by humans when ultra-violet-B rays from sunlight hit our skin.
Therefore, vitamin D3 is the more natural type of vitamin D. In addition to being more natural, vitamin D3 converts much faster than vitamin D2, and D2 has a shorter shelf life.
The take-away is simple. Vitamin D2, while most certainly better than nothing, should not be your first choice of a vitamin D supplement. Whenever possible, stick with vitamin D3.
How common is Vitamin D deficiency?
More common that imagined. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, in 2008 vitamin D deficiency was recognized as a pandemic! With the dire warnings from dermatologists about the risk of skin cancer due to sunlight exposure, we are getting less vitamin D than ever. In addition, very few foods naturally contain vitamin D.
A French study concluded that 14 percent of otherwise healthy adults had low levels of vitamin D…very low. Another study, this time in America, measured the vitamin D levels of medical professionals – and discovered that among those who had not taken a vitamin D supplement, an astonishing 42 percent of them had a vitamin D shortage by winter’s end. Among those tested who did supplement with vitamin D, the shortage rate was reduced to 11%.
Here are a few more categories of folks that are at an elevated risk of vitamin D deficiency:
Children, regardless of age
Obese people, and those who have had bariatric surgery
Anyone with liver and kidney problems
People with dark skin
Anyone with osteoporosis, or an elderly person who has a history of falls or has had a bone fracture.
So, now you can see the need for this vitamin, and its importance. Simply put, Vitamin D3 just about does it all! From the anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties, to keeping your brain neurons firing on all cylinders and fighting depression, the benefits just keep on coming. Let’s look at a few more things this miracle vitamin does:
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, vitamin D is essential for the “formation, growth, and repair of bones and for normal calcium absorption and immune function” and there are studies to suggest that “higher levels of vitamin D in the blood are associated with reduced risks of colorectal cancer; however, the research results overall have been inconsistent.”
Prevention of osteoporosis. Vitamin D helps us absorb calcium and phosphorous, which play a crucial role in maintaining the strength and integrity of our bones.
Strengthens the immune system. Immune system cells have structures with vitamin D receptors. Therefore, as a result of vitamin D deficiency, your immune system is weakened, and the risk of infection dramatically increases. Also, vitamin D3 protects the body from respiratory infections, and can help the body defend against tuberculosis. Finally, vitamin D3 is a safe and effective way to prevent and/or lessen the effects of the flu virus.
Lessen heart attack risk. A study published in 2012 concluded that low levels of vitamin D3 may increase the risk of heart attack and early death. In fact, a 2010 presentation at The American College of Cardiology demonstrated that low levels of vitamin D in patients with cardiovascular disease were approximately 30 percent less likely to die if they supplemented with vitamin D3. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death, worldwide. Vitamin D3 is a weapon of protection to add to your arsenal.
Maintaining a healthy body weight. According to research carried out at The Medical College of Georgia, vitamin D plays a large role in maintaining a healthy body weight.
Reduces the risk of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Multiple Sclerosis is far less common the nearer you get to the equator, since there is more sunlight.
Reduces the risk of many types of diseases. Cancer (colon, prostate, breast and pancreatic), autoimmune diseases, (diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis) and Crohn’s disease occur less in a person with adequate vitamin D levels than those with vitamin D deficiency.
How to make sure you are getting Vitamin D3′s benefits
One way to insure you are getting an adequate amount of vitamin D is the way Mother nature intended: the sun. 10-15 minutes exposure is enough to get the vitamin D supply that you need, especially in the summer months. There is certainly no need to risk developing skin cancer by continually staying in the sun longer than that.
As with so many other health concerns, the food you eat plays a vital role in getting a sufficient supply of Vitamin D3. Here is a brief list of foods that contain vitamin D:
Fish: Sardines, mackerel, tuna, catfish and salmon
Finally, consider supplementing. The recommended dosage depends upon how severe the deficiency is – and this can be discovered by a blood test.
Currently, the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is 400 International Units (IU’s). Considering the fact that on a hot, sunny summer afternoon, it is possible to receive a dose of 20,000 IU’s of vitamin D in as little as 15 minutes of laying in the sun, the RDA seems a tad bit anemic. A minimum dosage of vitamin D should be in the range of 2,000 to 3,000 IU’s per day. This is especially true in the northern latitudes during the winter months.
In closing, here is a quote from Dr. Michael F. Holick, MD, PhD, professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at the University of Boston Medical Center:
“Vitamin D doesn’t treat diseases; vitamin D is there to help prevent chronic illnesses.”
Health has been described as “90 percent prevention, 10 percent cure”, and this has been proven time and time again. The miracle protection offered by vitamin D3 is safe, easy and inexpensive. Your continued good health may depend upon you taking advantage of it.

Do you fantasize about stopping aging?
Want to regain your youthful energy?
Wish you could effortlessly zap your ever-accumulating fat?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, you are where you need to be…at last! Keep reading to finally discover the secrets of using a safe, easy, legal and proven method to turn the clock back…watch in amazement as your body sheds years, aches, and pounds…and experience a miracle transformation.
How many times have you heard that exercise and correct nutrition are the keys to health and longevity? Also, why you shouldn’t smoke, and why you should limit alcohol consumption, stay hydrated, get sufficient sleep and control your stress levels? And that you don’t need to take supplements or any kind of hormone replacement therapy? Just stay on the path, and forget about anything “unnatural.”
However, experience has shown that eventually these ideas weaken under the merciless battering ram of aging. No matter how strict you diet, or how many miles you run and intensely pump iron, and no matter how many Yoga pretzel-type poses you can squeeze into, you lose a little bit each year. At first, it’s almost imperceptible. A slower step here, a few new aches and pains there. And if you casually mention this, your concerns are downplayed or ignored, due to your age.
But as time goes on, aging continues to rear its ugly head in a most insidious manner. The wrinkles…the graying…the fatigue…the difficulty of concentrating…the inability to get a good night’s sleep…the new health concerns…all add up to the point that they can’t be denied or ignored.
Hopefully, you are not suffering from any or all of the above afflictions. But even if you’re not feeling the full fury of any of them, the brutal truth is this: in spite of everything you have done correctly, aging is winning. For sure, it’s a slow, grinding, hard-fought battle, thanks to your lifestyle. But aging inexorably advances, seemingly becoming more and more resistant to your efforts to slow it down.
As mentioned earlier, any concerns about the changes an older person is experiencing are quite often dismissed as “that’s natural for your age.” Or how about: “There’s nothing we can do about it, so just accept things as they are and deal with it.”
But is this depressing, bleak scenario really that cut and dried? Is there anything more we can do to feel like living again?
The answer is YES…through the miracle of Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH)
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): A Modern Miracle
One of the main causes of aging is a lack of growth hormone. Beginning at approximately age thirty, our body’s ability to produce growth hormone begins to slow down and continues to drop at an alarming 10% per decade. As you continue to lose growth hormone, all of the above symptoms of aging appear…and just keep getting worse if you don’t do anything about it.
This is where Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH) can make a difference in your life…a gigantic, life-changing, dramatic difference. HGH is a state-of-the-art, cutting-edge therapy that can benefit both men and women. How does it work? Keep reading.
When you try our therapy, our physicians will restore your hormones to a youthful level by injecting Bio-identical hormones. These injections are precise, and are individually tailor-made for you.
Our treatments restore your levels of these vital hormones to what they were decades ago, in the prime of your youth: exactly where they need to be for you to notice the miraculous transformation that Hormone Replacement Therapy can bring! All this is done naturally, since the Bio-identical hormones we treat you with supplement your own body’s natural production of these same exact hormones.
An important point to consider is this: There is nothing unnatural or synthetic about this treatment. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy using testosterone, human growth hormone, estrogen Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Menopausal HRT are biologically identical versions of the hormones you have in your body. Why is this therapy needed? The problem is simple: as mentioned above, as you age your levels of these hormones decline…with debilitating effects on your health.
Here are some of the many benefits you will experience with HGH:
Blowtorch ugly, unhealthy fat
Skyrocket your energy levels
Strengthen your heart
Improve your health and quality of life
Experience deep, restorative sleep

Re-Invent Your Life Today
No question about it. Recently, we have heard so much about Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – especially its dangers and abuses. Yet common sense tells us that there are benefits to HGH. These benefits may be astonishing, since athletes are among its heaviest users, and they are ultra-competitive and acutely aware of what works and what doesn’t.
So, what is the truth? Is HGH safe and effective, as some claim? Or is it loaded with hidden dangers and hideous side effects? Just what are the benefits? And do they outweigh the risks? Let’s take a look at the facts of HGH. Then you will be in a much better position to make an informed decision as to whether or not HGH is appropriate for you.
Human Growth Hormone is produced by the pituitary gland. The pituitary is located near the central core of the brain. The specific location where Human Growth Hormone is secreted is the rear portion of the frontal lobe of the pituitary. In this area there are organs known as somatotrophs which secrete Human Growth Hormone when they receive GH-RH Stimulation from the Hypothalamus.
Remember those teenage years when you could stop at a late-night, fast-food drive-through, devour an obscene, calorie-loaded pile of cheeseburgers, fries, sodas and milkshakes…yet wake up the next morning and still have abs? Or how easy it was to quickly get into tip-top shape for your favorite sport? And how your energy levels were akin to a rumbling volcano? How could this be?
The answer is simple. During these years, adolescent bodies are experiencing an explosion of HGH. This miracle substance speeds up our metabolism, which allows us to burn fat and build muscle. For many parents of teenage boys, the price of buying Junior a set of barbells is far more than its cost. Endless eating binges and constant trips to the clothing store for larger-sized clothes is a seemingly never-ending expense. But this expense is not never-ending. Here’s why.
Mother nature, in all her infinite wisdom, is usually great about giving us what we need, when we need it. Considering that for several thousands of years of human evolution the average life-span was about 35, we only needed spurts of HGH through our twenties. Therefore, as we enter our thirties, HGH begins to decline at approximately 10% per year. This can happens even faster for some folks, due to poor lifestyle choices.
Regardless, the thing to remember is this: Mother Nature has not as of yet caught up to our recently extended life-spans. For example, entering the 20th century, the average male life expectancy was a mere 47 years! This was, of course, due to a variety of factors (sanitation, lack of modern medical procedures, risk of childbirth, ignorance of nutrition, etc.), and there have always been examples of individuals living extremely long lives.
However, we still carry the genetic patterns of eons of evolution. We are designed to reproduce in our teens or early twenties. By thirty, we have (according to this theory of evolution) fulfilled our mission, and have no need for excess HGH.
But we are not helpless bystanders to this travesty. Contact us NOW, and keep reading to learn how to fool our evolutionary decline. At times, Mother Nature offers the best way to go. But there are times when she does not…and she needs tricked. We will show you how to do this: safely, with ease and convenience.
Congratulations! You have just moved beyond “thinking about it”, and day-dreaming about what you would like to look and feel like. You have taken action…GREAT! We’re as excited as you are to help you experience the miracle of Injectable Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy.
Naturally, you probably have a few questions. Please keep reading for the answers.

Question Six: Do you have any first-person testimonials? Yes explore our site
Let’s get going…NOW!
You may feel that you are becoming fatigued, faster and more often than you did in your younger days. You may also be suffering from other symptoms of aging ( i.e., low sex drive, diminished immune system, loss of mental sharpness, etc.).
You may also have heard about Injectable Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy, and realized that your problems may stem from a growth hormone deficiency.
Good thinking. The amount of HGH secreted by the pituitary gland drops off as we age. The older we get, the sharper the drop. So, the odds are that you probably are correct…you very well may have a HGH deficiency. But there’s only one way to know for sure: a comprehensive, detailed, professional blood test.
And that’s our first step in designing an Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy that fits your unique needs.
Your blood sample will be sent same day delivery via Federal Express (FEDEX) to our associate corporation LabCorp, which is an experienced, professional blood diagnostic company.
Once there, LabCorp specialists will run several tests (listed below). Withing 3 to seven days, we will have your results, which will be gone over in detail by one of our anti-aging physicians. This will allow us to narrow your treatment options to exactly what will give you results…quickly!
Then, your anti-aging physician will call you, and together we will devise the program that is uniquely designed just for you. We will work as a team, with one goal in mind: your successful HGH replacement therapy treatment.

Are You Sick And Tired Of Being Sick And Tired?
Then Its Time To Reverse The Aging Process…with Genotropin
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is one of the most, if not the most important hormone in the human body. It is responsible for so many functions of the body, and affects fat, muscle and cells. As we grow, the pituitary gland secretes more and more growth hormone. This reaches a peak in our teen years, as waves of HGH surge though our veins, like a fire hose with the water turned on full blast.
Regrettably, this surge begins to drop off as early as our mid-20?s. Starting around age 30, we lose growth hormone at a rate of at least 10% per decade…and this accelerates dramatically with each passing decade.
The sad reality of this? Very simple. Fully grown adults need HGH every bit as much as children and growing teenagers. By making certain lifestyle changes (correct nutrition, exercise, stress reduction and supplements), we can slow the loss of HGH. But without HGH replacement therapy, we are still fighting a losing battle…in spite of our best and valiant efforts.
This is where Genotropin can help
Genotropin is biologically similar to HGH in the sense that both are manufactured and secreted by the pituitary gland. Genotropin is an injectable form of HGH, and is approved for use in adult with low levels of HGH. Levels of HGH are detected by a stimulation test in the blood. This test measures the ability of the pituitary gland to secrete HGH.
How to use Genotropin Safely
When you begin HGH Genotropin Replacement Therapy, our professional and experienced staff will guide you every step of the way. Safety is our top priority, and this means we will not prescribe any form of HGH Replacement Therapy (including Genotropin) until we have evaluated the results of your blood work and physical exam. Specifically, clients will not receive Genotropin therapy if they:
Have active tumors, or are in the process of receiving anti-tumor treatment.
Have any sort of complications from injury, surgery, and any heart or lung problems
Are suffering from Prader Willi Syndrome
Are allergic to the preservative Cresol
Once you have began Genotropin therapy, you will be instructed to contact us immediately if any of the following symptoms appear: vomiting, nausea, blurry vision and headaches. These may be symptoms of a rare disorder called Intracranial Hypertension, which occurs as a result of abnormal levels of pressure in and around the brain. As mentioned, this is very rare, and is easily dealt with by halting the therapy or adjusting the dosage.
Other possible side effects are: muscle or join pain, tingling and numbness in the fingers and toes, stiff joints and fluid retention that may lead to swelling of the feet and hands. These symptoms usually disappear on their own. If not, we will adjust the dosage.

You’ve read about the benefits…the incredible, mind-blowing benefits…that Injectable Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy (HGH) can deliver. Perhaps you have waded through the scientific studies – studies that have demonstrated and scientifically proven, time and time again – that HGH works! And your conclusion is that maybe…just maybe…this is exactly what you have been searching for and have at long-last finally found. Yet you’re still not quite sure.
For many, this is the first time that any anti-aging product or treatment regime has actually delivered on it’s promise. And the first time they have found something that is not too good to be true.
Why is this? What’s the secret?
This is, of course, a logical question. Exactly why does HGH produce the benefits and results that it promises? What’s the secret? Good question. A question that deserves an honest, easy-to-understand answer.
And the answer is…drum roll…Cell Regeneration
Here’s why. Aging was once considered an inevitable fact of life. Everyone gets old. That’s Mother Nature’s plan, and that’s “just the way it is.” All attempts to slow or reverse the aging process were considered either immoral or scientifically impossible.
However, the past several decades have witnessed a sea change in attitudes toward aging. Medical professionals, bodybuilders, life-extension devotees, research scientists and regular people with an interest in alternative health have gradually began to see aging as it is: A DISEASE
And the loss of growth hormone is the main cause of aging.
Think about this. Human Growth Hormone is responsible for virtually everything in our bodies…muscle growth…memory…metabolism…skin and hair growth…our ability to heal wounds…and more…much more.
What do all of these important functions have in common? They are all ruled by our cells. Simply put, cell reproduction and growth are a direct result of the growth hormone that is secreted by the pituitary gland.
This is the reason why children and teenagers seem to change so rapidly. Growth hormone is racing through their veins at a breakneck pace. So far, so good.
The problems begin as the pituitary gland slows down the release of growth hormone. This usually begins around the age of 30, and continues at approximately 10% per decade. Do the math, and construct the graph. The line steadily goes downhill…
And the end result is not a pretty picture.
Wrinkles. Sagging skin and muscles. Increased flab around the mid-section. Thinning hair. Fatigue. Lack of quality sleep. Joint pain. The onset of one affliction after the next. Indeed, not a pretty picture…not by a long-shot. But when growth hormone goes to work at the deepest cellular level, the entire game changes. Here is a brief, non-scientific explanation of why growth hormone is so effective.
Protease is defined as an enzyme that breaks down proteins and peptides. Protease plays a huge role maintaining our good health. From helping digest the protein we eat, to boosting out immune system and keeping our blood in an alkaline state (as opposed to an acidic state), protease keeps things running as intended.
However, our supply of protease is subject to constant attack from Free Radicals. Free Radicals are defined as an atom or group of atoms that has one unpaired electron, which makes it highly unstable and reactive. Free Radicals have been proven in studies to cause cellular damage, and are linked to many age-related diseases.
Growth Hormone to the rescue
This is where growth hormone proves itself to be a super-hero. Growth hormone offers a stonewall defense of our cells by stimulating protease inhibitors. These defenders attack Free Radicals tooth and claw, and stop them from doing damage to our cells. The results? Take a look:
Increased bone density, smooth, glowing skin, improved digestion, skyrocketing energy levels and many other amazing surprises all team up to put the brakes on aging…and even put aging into reverse gear!
As you can see, beauty is not just skin-deep. It begins at the smallest and deepest levels of our bodies: our cells. The astonishing benefits that growth hormone delivers begin from the inside out. There is nothing “just cosmetic” about injectable HGH. Literally everything in your body…from the tiniest atom to the largest organs and muscles…will experience a rejuvenation that must be seen and felt to be believed.
But none of this can happen without you taking action. Don’t waste another moment with useless daydreaming about regaining your youthful vitality. CALL US! NOT TORORROW…NOT NEXT WEEK…NOT NEXT MONTH…CALL RIGHT NOW!
To obtain HGH injections is no longer a difficult task because the FDA has approved growth hormone replacement therapy for adults diagnosed with deficiency. There are many web sites offering HGH treatments online, but only a few of them are reputable. To obtain HGH in the United States, you need to take a physical exam, get your blood tested for deficiency, and show signs and symptoms of low hgh levels. Before you start an HGH therapy program, be sure the place you are purchasing from requires blood panel tests at your local blood draw center, like quest diagnostics or lab corp. Do not buy from web sites that do not require blood tests, or you will get a knock on the door from the FBI or DEA, and have handcuffs slapped on you. Go through legitimate medical centers like Conscious Evolution Medical Institute of Hormone Therapy or Kingsberg Medical or Anti-Aging Group.
In other words only buy HGH from board certified physicians specializing in Endocrinology, not from fly by night Internet web sites that dont require medical evaluation.
You can be certain that our HGH physicians will prescribe to buy HGH online only after blood work, examination and complete medical history form was provided by the patient. Hormone experts will observe their patients before and during HGH therapy. The most important goal for our specialists is improvement of life quality for their patients.HGH Doctors will not prescribe to buy HGH online just because people want it or because HGH therapy is very popular in our days, or for any other irrelevant reasons. HGH Doctors will not prescribe to buy HGH online for bodybuilding purposes or people under 30 years of age without the proof of decreased levels of HGH or symptoms relevant to Human Growth Hormone deficiency. Only a specialist can determine the feasibility to buy HGH online for anti-aging and improvement of your life quality. Our specialists prescribe to buy HGH online only for people who really need HGH therapy and only for rejuvenation purposes.
Remember: when you are looking to buy HGH injections, remember that Somatropin (HGH) can only be obtained through prescription from a licensed physician.
Another important fact is that our HGH Physicians prescribe only Somatropin injectables approved by FDA and our physicians prescribe injections for their patients only if it it’s clinically necessary. You can never be 100% sure of the HGH injections quality and how safe they are when you buy HGH injections online from fly by night web sites.
The slogan of Mancore’s product-line parent company, Complete Nutrition is “Look better. Feel better. Perform better”, but what they are selling on one of their websites, or specifically www Mancore Results, appears to be nothing more than fancy tablets with proprietary blends in sexy supplement jars and to top it off, a spray bottle with the words HGH on it. Why does this matter? Let’s visit their web site first http://www.mancoreresults.com/ and find out. On the front page of the mancore web site, is the mean and lean, Mike Alstott, Former All-Pro Fullback and beside him is an embedded video of talking heads offering energetic and glowing reviews about the mancore line of products and how it came into existence.
Know this, the only legitimate hormone replacement therapy programs that exist, are under the guidelines of medical science, requiring a physicians prescription. If you see a company selling supplements, pills, or tablets that use hormone names in them like testosterone or hgh, they are likely scams. Have you seen the latest hormone replacement therapy marketing scam? Genf20, nugenix, Serovital, and now Mancore. Why are they scams? because they use deceptive concepts to market their products, and make claims that can not be scientifically backed up after 80 years of testosterone research and 50 years of HGH research, there is nothing in scientific or medical literature to back up the claims these web sites claim about their products.
Let’s look closer, a visit to their expensively designed web site www.ManCoreResults.com shows handsome people and beautifully package bottles of pills or sprays, with names like Testosterone Replenish and HGH Night Spray. Vitamins don’t replenish Testosterone, and HGH Night Spray? Come on, what a joke, the only way to increase HGH in the body without exercising is via HGH injections or Sermorelin injections, but taking vitamins and concoctions of herb complexes do not replenish or boost hormones in our body at any level other than a placebo.
Do you know why testosterone is injected intramuscularly or delivered by a transdermal cream? Because these 2 methods allow Testosterone to enter the blood stream. If you took testosterone in the form of pills, it would slowly destroy your liver, this is why there isn’t a single reputable doctor on the planet Earth that would prescribe you testosterone pills. So when you surf around our web site, we will show you many different companies selling testosterone pills, which dont actually have testosterone in them, but vitamins and herbs. We provide these companies on our site, so you can checkout their slick marketing scams.

Human Growth Hormone Patient Profile
Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy continues to amaze. New uses for this potent therapy are being continually researched and uncovered. Although today, HGH Hormone Replacement is only available for a few particular indications, in the future, there is no doubt that its uses will continue to grow in number.
Human Growth Hormone Post-Polio Treatment
In today’s article, we will discuss the benefits of Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy experienced by a man named Chris. Chris was diagnosed with polio when he was a young child. Although Polio is all but eradicated in the United States today, there are still many that suffer from the after-effects of this devastating virus.
Although Chris eventually beat the disease, he was stricken with a few chronic issues as a result of his battle. For six months, Chris suffered from paralysis of one of his legs. Although the paralysis eventually wore off, Chris still suffered from a partial loss of mobility in his leg. He was forced to wear a brace until he was thirteen years old, which extended from his hip to his knee.
In addition to the mobility issue he suffered as a result of polio, his leg also did not grow appropriately, leaving his affected right leg smaller, shorter, and weaker than his healthy left leg. Even his foot was smaller two sizes smaller, in fact. Chris always worked through his disability, though, and regained a significant amount of function over the years.
The Debilitating Effects of Post-Polio Syndrome
Later in his life, his doctor officially diagnosed him with a disorder known as Post-Polio Syndrome. This disorder usually occurs later in life in patients that experienced Polio at a young age. The body starts to slow down and degrade over time, and the muscles start to weaken, leading to an overpowering sense of fatigue.
Patients that suffer from Post-Polio Syndrome often have to take numerous drugs in order to alleviate the symptoms of the disorder. Chris was prescribed quite a few, including sleeping pills to soothe his restless nights, and pain medications to alleviate chronic pain, and muscle relaxers in order to reduce the frequency and severity of twitching muscles. On top of that, they sharply suggested that he reduce his physical activity in order to reduce agitation and preserve energy.
Although Chris was on a cocktail of medications, he was told that even this was likely not enough. For many, the long-term prognosis for Post-Polio Syndrome is rather depressing a life bound in a wheelchair, experiencing continually degrading, physical function which forces many to be dependent on friends, family, or health care professionals.
Chris couldn’t imagine a life like this for himself. Even in the face of his circumstances, he always lived life to the fullest, and the prospect of not being able to live life his own way was a depressing concept. At first, the physiological and psychological effects of Post-Polio Syndrome wreaked havoc upon his once active and vibrant life. Because he was forced to live a lifestyle without exercise, his weight began to increase quickly and dangerously.
The disease itself left him increasingly tired and exhausted, enhanced by his lack of physical activity. The support groups were supposed to help him come to terms with his new life, but they only frustrated him more and more. He was frustrated because everyone seemed to be giving up and settling for an unfulfilling life of progressive decline.
Then He Found Human Growth Hormone
His despair in regard to his circumstances drove him to seek other opinions and treatment options. Chris had heard that there were new alternative treatments, and he wanted to take the chance to improve his condition. In 2002, he learned that Post-Polio Disorder was associated with Human Growth Hormone Deficiency, and that HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy had the potential to help people like him reverse the symptoms and severity of Post-Polio Disorder.
Benefits of HGH
Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy has long been known to provide a number of different benefits to patients suffering from HGH Deficiency, including:
Improved Sleeping Habits
Enhanced Muscle Mass
Increased Fat Burning Potential
Improved Cardiovascular Health
Alleviation of Depression and Anxiety
Doesn’t Chris sound like the poster-child for Human Growth Hormone Deficiency?
The doctor that prescribed Chris HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy was a lot like him. He also suffered from Post-Polio Syndrome, and actually used HGH Injections himself, in order to treat the symptoms of the disease. In addition to HGH Deficiency, Chris also learned that he could also potentially benefit from Testosterone Replacement Therapy, and his doctor prescribed him a Testosterone Cream. Post-Polio Disorder is largely a disease of Hormone Imbalance, and by correcting this hormone Deficiencies, he had hope that he could resolve all the other issues adversely affecting his health.
How Did HGH Benefit Chris?
Within a month of starting Hormone Replacement Therapy, Chris started to notice some significant changes in his physical ability. Although Chris could still walk, he no longer had the capacity to carry himself up the stairs without pulling himself up using his hands. After starting Hormone Replacement Therapy, he found that he was able to walk up the stairs using his lower body alone, something he had not been able to do for well over a year.
As time passed further, his life only got better. After nine months, he dropped eighteen pounds and even became fit enough to start swimming again! Although he didn’t have the endurance he did when he was younger, he could still swim as long as half of a mile as long as he took brief breaks. Chris was no longer shackled by fatigue and his self worth began to soar.
Long Term Effects of HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy
Chris continued to take the therapy. After nearly two years, he still maintained a healthy weight, and he is still active and energetic. The only issue that he has had is a slight weakness in one of his hands, which is a small price to pay for getting his life back.
Chris experienced very minor side effects as a result of treatment. In the initial week, he experienced a bit of water retention in the legs, but as his body acclimated to treatment, the edema naturally faded. It should be noted that some other patients do experience certain side-effects, including joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and increased blood pressure.
Why Hadn’t HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy Been Recommended Before?
Although Chris experienced incredible benefits through the utilization of Human Growth Hormone, the use of HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy for this purpose has not been studied deeply. This is likely because polio is all but defeated today in the United States. In spite of this, there are still many older individuals that suffer from post-Polio Syndrome that would likely benefit from enhanced Human Growth Hormone Levels.
Although Polio is very nearly eradicated, there are still many worldwide that could still benefit from this treatment. This is also another data point which shows that HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy has a number of significant, well documented benefits.
In the last decade, it has been discovered that one of the most life-altering symptoms of Post-Polio Syndrome is a severe Deficiency in Human Growth Hormone later in life. By restoring HGH Levels, it is possible to help these patients live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
What Does This Have To Do With Me?
Although Polio is no longer an issue in the United States, or most other countries in the world, the effects of HGH Injections upon patients with Post-Polio Disorder is incredibly enlightening. Polio is just one of a number of factors which can cause a man or woman to experience severe HGH Deficiency. Other potential causes include:
Symptoms of HGH Deficiency
All of these issues have the potential to reduce or eliminate a patient’s ability to produce healthy levels of Human Growth Hormone. Most of the symptoms that Chris experienced were the hallmark symptoms of Growth Hormone Deficiency, including:
Fatigue HGH is a potent, metabolic hormone. If the body isn’t producing enough Human Growth Hormone, energy levels plummet. This decline in energy has a devastating impact upon health and vitality.
Increased Weight Gain These same metabolic processes also help keep weight in check. Without appropriate physical activity, or the energy to engage in that activity, the body starts to accumulate fat. This body fat tends to build around the midsection.
Decreased Muscle Mass Human Growth Hormone and IGF-1, as well as Testosterone, are central to maintaining strong and healthy muscles. As HGH Levels decline, patients are more prone to issues related to frailty, which prevent them from doing simple things like walking up a flight of stairs with ease.
Depression and Irritability HGH Deficiency also has a powerful impact on psychological health, through a mixture of physiological changes and changes in self-worth.
The use of HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy helped Chris. Could it help you?

My First Experience with HGH
Men’s Health > Testosterone > Testosterone Cream
Testosterone cream is a form of testosterone hormone replacement therapy that is used to raise the levels of testosterone in males that are experiencing a deficiency.
When men have a low testosterone level in their body, they generally experience several different symptoms that can adversely affect their quality of life. These symptoms include:
When the above symptoms occur, a doctor will prescribe testosterone hormone therapy to increase testosterone levels in the body and to alleviate some of the deficiency symptoms.
When testosterone cream is applied, there are some side effects that can occur. In most cases the side effects are mild; yet they can grow more severe if untreated. These side effects can include:
And just in case your the curious type, or if you would simply like to know, here’s how to apply Testosterone cream ..

4-Men: Testosterone Cream – Male Enhancement Information
The Connection Between Low-T and Infertility
Why Does Testosterone Deficiency Cause Infertility?
One of the most sure-fire signs of Testosterone Deficiency is lack of libido. Everyone knows that sex drive is tightly connected to Low-T. Even though there are many other symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency, this is the single symptom that most people understand and recognize. Most people also know that Low-T is one of many causes of Erectile Dysfunction, although there are a few other common causes as well.
Who Should Use Testosterone HRT?
For men that are experiencing trouble in the bedroom, whether that be the result of lack of sex drive, lack of functional ability, or both, Testosterone Hormone Treatments are an amazing tool for restoring normal sexual function in a large segment of aging males.
There is one potential problem involved in regard to Testosterone HRT, however, and every man should be made aware of it, no matter the age. Testosterone Replacement has the ability to put energy back into your love life, but it can also reduce your fertility while you are using it.
Infertility and Testosterone Replacement
According to urological specialists, Testosterone HRT has a significant impact on the ability for a man to bear children effectively. There have even been studies which have explored the potential of Testosterone Replacement Therapy as a form of birth control. Research has shown that long term Testosterone Supplementation can cause men to lose one hundred percent of their sperm production while using the treatment. Long Term Low-T Treatment has this effect in nine out of ten men.
Although Testosterone is fantastic for your bedroom experience, it may prevent you from experiencing the fruits of your labor. Many (or even most) men will be perfectly happy with this. By the time most people need Testosterone Replacement Therapy, there is a high likelihood that they have already had all of the children that they plan to have.
Even if circumstances change, suspending Testosterone Treatments can restore Sperm Production (although Erectile Dysfunction issues will return).
How does Natural Testosterone Contribute to Fertility?
Testosterone is one of the most vital components of sperm production. The connection between sperm genesis and Testosterone can be most simply described as a positive-feedback loop. Let us further explain exactly how this works:
Before either Testosterone or Sperm can be created, the testes must receive signals from the brain to authorize production. The hormones that trigger the production of Sperm and Testosterone are known as Gonadotropin-releasing Hormones, also referred to as GnRH. The term Gonadotropin signifies that the hormones are responsible for the production of sex hormones by the Testes and Ovaries.
The two primary hormones related to healthy sexual function in both sexes are known as Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone. In order for sperm to propagate, both hormones must be available in constructive amounts.
In a healthy man with normal Testosterone Levels, this system is in perfect equilibrium, and will work without a hitch. As Testosterone Levels in the blood drop, the brain gets signals to increase production of both hormones to compensate.
Why does Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy Reduce Fertility?
Testosterone Replacement Therapy is a simple concept. In order to restore proper function and health, a physician will prescribe a Testosterone Treatment that restores Hormone Balance by introducing an outside source of Testosterone. Unlike Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy, which can only be delivered via injection, there are numerous, effective ways to effectively deliver Testosterone to the human body.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy can be administered the following ways:
Testosterone Dermal Implants
All of these methods can restore Testosterone Levels effectively, restoring function over time. The problem is that, when you introduce outside sources of Testosterone, you confuse your body just a little bit, which causes the positive feedback loop to turn into a negative feedback loop.
Your body senses the increase in concentration of Testosterone, and signals to the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to limit or suspend Testosterone Production. Because of this lack of natural Testosterone Secretion, your brain does not send signals to the testes to produce sperm either.
Over time, Testosterone Replacement Therapy will continually diminish your sperm production. As sperm production drops, this slowly reduces your ability to conceive until sperm production either completely shuts down or drops to a point to which fertilization becomes incredibly difficult.
If you are planning to conceive a child in the near future, it is recommended that you turn to another source of Erectile Dysfunction Treatment, such as Cialis or Viagra. There are other treatments which can increase sex drive and sexual function while not limiting your fertility.
Why Choose Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Although Testosterone HRT limits fertility, by most other measures, it is far more beneficial to your body and overall health than other forms of ED Treatment if you suffer from Low-T. There are numerous symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency that are not treated when using other forms of Erectile Dysfunction Treatment.
For example, Viagra increases Erectile Function by restoring blood flow to the penis and inducing the release of nitric oxide which promotes the vasodilation vital for an erection to form. Viagra was actually originally conceived in 1991 as a treatment to promote healthy blood pressure. Over the next few years, researchers noticed that the drug had the side-effect of promoting the formation of erections, leading to it’s eventual approval as an Erectile Dysfunction medication.
This doesn’t treat the root cause of Testosterone Deficiency however, it only treats a limited pool of symptoms associated with the disorder. Choosing Testosterone Replacement Therapy means that you can resolve a number of other symptoms associated with Low-T, including:
Loss of Muscle Mass
Decrease in Bodyfat Metabolism
Loss of Bone Mass
Fatigue and Energy Depletion
Unless your ultimate goal with therapy is to conceive a child, the benefits from Testosterone Replacement Therapy often far outweigh the loss of fertility and other risks.
Does this Negative Feedback Mechanism lead to other health issues?
It does not. Testosterone delivered to the body from an exogenous source provides all of the other necessary benefits of Testosterone Naturally Produced by the human body. The system of bio-feedback involved with natural Testosterone release only has an effect upon the production of natural Testosterone and the production of sperm by the testes. Because of this, Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has no negative effect upon processes vital to male health.
In order to properly stimulate fertility, it is vital to both ensure that Natural Testosterone Production and Luteinizing Hormone production remain sufficiently elevated to encourage the healthy production of sperm. Testosterone Replacement Therapy alone is not capable of achieving that goal.
How to Increase Fertility in Men Experiencing Testosterone Deficiency
If you are a man with Low-T, one of the most effective means to increase Sperm Production is with the use of Gonadotropin Injections. Gonadotropin Injections contain Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Luteinizing Hormone. They achieve Sperm Production through bypassing the feedback mechanism associated with Testosterone Replacement that discourages the release of Gonadotropins.
What is the Basic Protocol for Diagnosing Infertility
Generally, when a man comes into a clinic to learn about his fertility status, the first step is for the man to provide a sample in order to establish his sperm count. If he is producing an abnormally low amount of sperm, the next step is to perform blood testing in order to establish his T-Levels.
If the patient produces an abnormally low level of Testosterone, but still retains sexual function, the next step is simply to administer Gonadotropin Injections in order to promote enhanced fertility.
Although it may be fine to go to a general practitioner in order to establish Testosterone Levels and Sperm Count, the next step should be to talk to a reproductive specialist. Reproductive Endocrinologists are trained specifically in order to diagnose and treat Hormone Issues which lead to fertility problems.
Natural Ways to Increase Fertility
Although Gonadotropin Injections have a positive effect on fertility, there are other ways that you can naturally choose to enhance your fertility. If you would like to try your hand at natural procreation, you can try these steps before you visit a doctor, but these same steps can also further enhance fertility in combination with medical treatment.
Anything that you can do to positively influence your natural production of Testosterone will benefit your fertility. We recommend the following three steps to increase fertility
Eat Better- Bodyfat Percentage has a significant effect upon Testosterone Production. Adipose fat, which pools around the stomach, hips, and midsection, has a negative effect upon Testosterone Levels. This form of fat has the ability to absorb Testosterone and convert it into Estrogen. By losing weight, you can eliminate the negative influence of Estrogen and promote healthier Testosterone Utilization.
Exercise More Often Another way to increase Testosterone Production is to engage in healthier exercise habits. Physical activity helps promote Testosterone Production in two important ways. First, it increases metabolism, burning off excess fat. Second, Testosterone Secretion increases as a direct result of intense physical activity. The combination of these two benefits can enhance fertility significantly for some men.
Get a Full Night’s Rest Testosterone is also released in significant amounts during sleep. If you don’t get the proper amount of sleep that you need, or you have environmental or medical issues which prevent you from sleeping soundly through the night, your Testosterone Production will likely suffer. By enforcing good sleeping habits, you promote a healthier and more natural release of Testosterone throughout the day.

The Connection Between Low-T and Infertility
The Subtle Effects of Low-T
How Low Testosterone Can Slowly Degrade Psychological, Physical, and Sexual Health
A lot of men resign themselves to the decline associated with aging. What they don’t realize is that a large number of symptoms most people associate with the aging process are actually the result of underlying hormone deficiencies. Because of their slow onset during mid-life, most men don’t realize that the changes in their life are powerfully affected by these changes in hormone production.
The goal of this article is to help you realize the symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency so that you can recognize the signs early and seek treatment to extend the pep and vitality of your life.
Subtle Signs of Low-T
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has been shown to lead to miraculous changes in health for men that suffer from Low-T. Testosterone HRT has been shown to effectively reduce fatigue, increase libido, and improve mood. It is incredibly easy to resolve an underlying Testosterone Deficiency, so if you qualify for treatment, there is no reason not to consider it.
In order to qualify for Testosterone Replacement with the Conscious Evolution Institute, you have to pass three important criteria:
YouMust Have Clinically Low Testosterone Levels
YouMust Display Manifest Symptoms of Low-T
YouMust be Over the Age of Thirty
It should be noted that Low-T alone does not warrant medical treatment. Many men actually have Low Testosterone and don’t display symptoms. For this reason, in order to qualify for Testosterone Replacement, you must actually be experiencing symptoms of Low-T. This means that Testosterone Replacement can only be used as a treatment and not as a preventative measure.
Before starting Testosterone Treatments, it is also important to recognize that the therapy does have certain side-effects associated with it, and there is a limited pool of data regarding the long term benefits and risks of treatment. If you think Testosterone Replacement Therapy may be the correct course of action for you, talk to a professional, like those at the Conscious Evolution Institute.
Signs of Testosterone Deficiency
Although the signs of Testosterone Deficiency are quite obvious when you actually take the time to acknowledge them, their effects over time can be incredibly subtle. Testosterone Deficiency is a spectrum disorder, meaning that dependent upon the level of deficiency, you will experience a different range of symptoms.
The severity of the symptoms also depends upon the severity of the deficiency. This means that as Testosterone Levels first start to decline you will feel absolutely no noticeable change, but as months and years continue to pass, the accumulated effects of continuous changes in Testosterone Concentration will have an ever-growing affect on your life.
Think of it like the old science experiment involving the toad. If a toad is placed in excessively hot water, it will immediately jump to safety. On the other hand, if you place the toad in water and slowly increase the temperature to dangerous levels, it will not realize the change in temperature and will not jump out to save its life. Hormone Deficiency acts in the same way. It happens so incrementally that there is significant chance that you are suffering from it and don’t even realize it!
All men experience Testosterone Decline in a similar way. Men have healthy levels of Testosterone and HGH throughout the teens and twenties, but the ability to produce Testosterone slowly starts to decline as we grow older. Depending on your own personal sensitivity to hormone deficiency, as well as the unique rate at which your T-Levels decline, you may experience noticeable symptoms sooner than later.
Below are some of the common symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency:
Low Energy and Fatigue
Over the course of Testosterone Decline, the body becomes less and less effective and generating energy and positive metabolism. As a result of this, you will eventually start to have trouble keeping your energy levels in the black, causing you to tire out more easily, or be less able to engage in strenuous physical activity.
Testosterone is intricately involved with the male Sex Drive. When we are young, our veins are pulsing with Testosterone, which contributes to our voracious appetite for sex and romance when we are young. As we get older, however, our ability to generate that psychological spark slowly fades. Men often think their decline in libido is a natural result of age. Wives often think their husbands are simply losing interest. If you are unable to get excited for your lover, there is a significant chance that it isn’t you, or her, it’s your T-Levels.
Many men also confuse Low Libido for a lack of ability to become sufficiently aroused. ED is the symptom of Testosterone Deficiency which is easily the most noticeable, but many men experience this issue and still don’t think their problem is simply Low-T.
At first, Low-T simply reduces the frequency of erections, but over time, it can severely affect the firmness of the erection. The lack of blood flow reduces both the effectiveness of the erection and the pleasure gained through sexual activity. In cases of severe Testosterone Deficiency, the male will often lose the total ability to experience an erection.
Most men don’t realize that Low-T can have a negative effect upon psychological health as well as sexual health. Healthy Testosterone Levels have been strongly correlated with healthy cognitive activity. As Testosterone Deficiency worsens, it can become more difficult to focus and concentrate on completing tasks. These concentration difficulties may be the result of general fatigue which impacts a man’s stamina in all aspects of life.
Depression and Dysthymia
Testosterone can also negatively impact psychological well-being. In men, Testosterone plays a role in maintaining a healthy baseline of happiness, and Testosterone Deficiency can negatively impact the release of pleasure chemicals in the brain which stimulate happiness. There are many men that mistakenly take anti-depressants, when they should be taking Testosterone.
Short Temper and Irritability
Low-T is directly correlated with an increase in the hormone, cortisol. Although Cortisol is a necessary hormone, men with Low-T start to produce way too much of it, which contributes to even further reductions in Testosterone Concentration. Increased cortisol levels induce stress on the body and mind, causing men to experience elevated levels of stress which contribute to increased anxiety issues. The cool, calm, collected influence of Testosterone is stripped down, leaving a man in a persistent and unhealthy beta-state.
Loss of Muscle Mass
As men grow older and their Testosterone Levels Decline, their muscle strength starts to fade. This is because Testosterone sustains male muscle mass. It’s the single biological reason why men are stronger than women. Testosterone Deficiency reduces this natural advantage in muscle building power, however. Most men simply think that aging causes the muscles to weaken, but it’s actually mostly the result of changes in hormone balance in the male body.
Increase in Bellyfat
This is another symptom that is frequently the result of Testosterone Deficiency, but most men resign the symptom to aging. Testosterone enhances general metabolism, helping to burn fat and maintain a healthy muscle-fat ratio. This is one reason why women naturally have a higher bodyfat percentage than men.
Their lower level of metabolism encourages them to distribute fat differently. Their natural, healthy hormone balance encourages this. Men with Low-T often start to pack on the pounds, and this extra belly fat has the capacity to further drain T-Levels because fat cells have the natural ability to convert Testosterone into Estrogen and Cortisol.
Reduced Perception of Self
All of these symptoms combine together and contribute to a general loss of self-worth. Testosterone Deficiency causes a slow drain of manhood which can have various negative impacts on overall health. As you are likely realizing by now, the symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency contribute heavily to what we perceive as simply aging, but it encourages an accelerated form of aging which has enhanced negative impact on all aspects of self.
Low-T Impacts Every Aspect of Health and Wellness
The thing that combines all of these symptoms is that they all come on slowly, and the cause of each symptom on its own could be the result of multiple different factors. What makes Testosterone Deficiency easy to recognize is that it impacts various systems at the same time, contributing to a slew of symptoms that all negatively impact health.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms you may be experiencing Testosterone Deficiency. The more symptoms you are dealing with, the more likely that Low-T is a real and terrible problem for you. The good news is that Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has the capability to return a stronger sex drive and a greater sense of youthfulness and health!
Methods of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
One of the great things about Testosterone HRT is that there are a number of different ways to get treated, simply dependent upon your personal preference. Below is a list of treatment options available to any man that suffers from Testosterone Deficiency:
Testosterone Creams and Gels- One of the simplest forms of Testosterone Treatment is Topical Testosterone. Testosterone Gels and Creams are absorbed directly into the skin, and require a daily treatment. Popular Testosterone Gels are Testim and AndroGel.
Testosterone Sprays- This form of Testosterone Treatment is similar to Testosterone Gels, but the Testosterone is aerated and applied using a pump mechanism. This simplifies the process of application and makes sure that you only apply Testosterone where you need it. Popular Testosterone Sprays are Fortesta and Axiron.
Testosterone Patches Testosterone is also available via transdermal patches, which provide Testosterone steadily over the course on an entire day. These patches are generally worn on the upper torso or arm. Like Testosterone Gels, they are applied on a daily basis.
Testosterone Oral Patches One of the newest forms of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy provides Testosterone via a patch attached to the gums. This form of Testosterone Replacement is easy to conceal, and requires twice daily treatment to be effective. It works by releasing the hormone directly into the blood stream via the sensitive tissues of the mouth. The most popular Low-T Oral Patch is known as Striant.
Testosterone Implants Another newer form of Testosterone Replacement is Testosterone Subdermal Pellets. In this form of treatment, pellets of Testosterone are implanted just below the skin, where they release Testosterone steadily over an extended period of time. Testosterone Pellets last far longer then other forms of Testosterone Treatment. One dose can last three to six months! Although Testosterone Implantation is a minor surgical procedure, you trade one session of surgery for months of treatment.
Testosterone Injections Testosterone Injections were the original form of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy, and are still quite popular today. With this form of treatment, Injections deliver Testosterone directly into muscle tissue, where it slowly works its way into your system. Testosterone Shots come in various forms. Some require multiple administrations per week, while others T-Injections can last for up to two weeks!
Why Isn’t There a Testosterone Pill?
Testosterone Pills are simply not a viable form of Testosterone Treatment. When Testosterone is ingested orally, acids and enzymes in the stomach break down Testosterone into its component parts, preventing you from experiencing the full benefits of treatment.
This biological breakdown of Testosterone can also harm your liver over time, because the organ is not designed to handle such high concentrations of the amino acid fragments which cycle through the liver after injection.
All other forms of Testosterone Treatment directly deliver Testosterone to the bloodstream, bypassing the liver and providing treatment directly to the body.
Performance-Enhancing Anabolics vs. Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy
There is a widely spread misconception that Testosterone HRT is the equivalent of taking Steroids for Performance Enhancement. This simply isn’t true. It certainly is true that Testosterone can and has been used for the purpose of enhancing athletic performance, but when used by patients with a medical need, it functions quite differently.
The goal of Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy isn’t to rejuvenate the body by pumping it up with unnatural levels of Testosterone, the goal is simply to restore Testosterone to the healthy levels associated with optimal, healthy function. Testosterone Abuse does provide gains to muscle mass and cuts fat, but it also has a number of negative side-effects.
Testosterone HRT for men with Diagnosed Testosterone Deficiency is a safe and effective way to restore health and vitality! Although some men may experience certain side-effects, these side-effects are generally mild, and can be easily treated and reversed simply by adjusting dosage.
Don’t Let Testosterone Deficiency Sneak Up on You!
To treat Low-T quickly and minimize the negative impact that it can have upon your health and well-being, it is important to be aware of both your own health circumstances and the Signs of Low-T. By recognizing the signs, you can talk to a qualified physician quickly and monitor your Testosterone Levels. By doing this, you can start Treating Low-T as soon as you become symptomatic optimizing your health and longevity!
If you think you may be a candidate for Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy, we encourage you to contact the Conscious Evolution Institute today. We have a staff of Board-Certified Physicians, and a well-trained clinical staff that can help you restore optimal hormone balance.
Subtle Effects of Low-T
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 19, 2014
As the body ages, metabolism slows, and countless symptoms of hormonal imbalance steadily reveal themselves. Men begin losing free testosterone in the body beginning around age 30, and at a rate of about 2% per year thereafter. The signs of low testosterone are feeling excessively fatigued, weaker, depressed, and lower sex drive. Women also experience hormonal imbalances as they age, the main hormonal plunge occurring at menopause. Symptoms of menopause can be sleeplessness, hot flashes, mood swings, memory problems, and much more. A great new way to treat these hormonal imbalances is via hormone replacement therapy. The Diet Doc system allows interested clients to order simple test kits, collect saliva or blood spot samples at home, send in samples, and review results and discuss treatment options with a licensed Diet Doc doctor.
Diet Doc only utilizes bio-identical hormone replacement options when administering their unique therapy. Synthetic hormone replacement treatments have been found less effective, and may actually be detrimental to the patients wellbeing. Studies have shown that patients report greater satisfaction with HRTs that contain progesterone compared with those that contain a synthetic progestin. Bio-identical hormones have some distinctly different, potentially opposite, physiological effects compared with their synthetic counterparts, which have different chemical structures. Both physiological and clinical data have indicated that progesterone is associated with a diminished risk for breast cancer, compared with the increased risk associated with synthetic progestins. Estriol has some unique physiological effects, which differentiate it from estradiol, estrone, and CEE. Estriol would be expected to carry less risk for breast cancer, although no randomized controlled trials have been documented. Synthetic progestins have a variety of negative cardiovascular effects, which may be avoided with progesterone.
Diet Docs new hormone replacement therapy is perfect for those who are feeling the effects of aging, or those who may naturally have hormonal imbalance and require treatment to attain normal health. The only way to determine if a hormonal imbalance is present is to test. Interested patients can contact Diet Doc and consult one on one with a doctor to determine which test may be needed to determine an area of need. Diet Doc offers a wide variety of tests, from a simple saliva collection to blood spot and urine tests to determine hormone replacement needs. These patients need only call the companys toll free number, or if a specific test is already desired, visit the HRTTreatments website at http://www.HRTTreatments.com and order a test kit from the online store.
Many potential patients around the country have shied away from seeking help for age related hormone imbalances, to avoid an embarrassing face-to-face visit to a doctors office. Diet Docs hormone test kits can be accessed completely through telemedicine, over the phone or the internet, to provide clients with the tools they need to quickly determine if hormone replacement therapy is right for them. Each patient will receive the test kit ordered, as well as unlimited consultations via telephone with a licensed Diet Doc doctor to review results and discuss treatment options, and access to bio-identical hormones delivered directly to their door. After an initial consultation with a doctor, patients can order their treatments, supplements, and much more with the ease of a telephone call, receiving their treatments in the comfort and privacy of their own home.

For years, doctors have advised patients about the relationship between diet and health risks for conditions such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Now, as community health researchers, we are seeing a correlation between a self-reported unhealthy diet and reduced levels of testosterone in men ages 45 and older.
Testosterone is an androgenic hormone found in men and in lower concentrations in women. In addition to playing an important role during male puberty and sexual development, testosterone serves important functions and affects multiple organ systems. Studies have indicated that men with lower levels of testosterone have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, as well as diabetes, obesity and all other causes of mortality. Testosterone serves an important function in developing muscle mass, especially in the face and upper body, and building bone density. Probably the most commonly known function of testosterone is its role as a sex steriod, which means it increases libido and improves sexual function.
Our team at the UK HealthCare Division of Community Medicine in collaboration with the University of North Texas Health Science Center found a correlation between poor diet and low levels of testosterone in men ages 45 and older. The research was supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. The study, which was recently published online in the Journal of Primary Care and Community Health, analyzed testosterone levels and lifestyle factors of 147 men in the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area.
All participants underwent a one-hour interview in addition to having blood drawn to measure testosterone levels. Participants were asked whether they had a healthy diet, which was classified as having high amounts of fruits, vegetables, poultry and fish, or an unhealthy diet, which was classified as having high amounts of red meat, fried food and fast food. The study found reduced testosterone levels were related to the increased age and unhealthy diets self-reported by participants. The study implicates that diet, in addition to advanced age, is a possible risk factor for developing reduced testosterone levels.
Testosterone levels among men decline by 1 percent per year starting at age 40. Low testosterone is defined as less than 300 nanograms/deciliter. Our study found that 39 percent of participants had levels below 300 nanograms/deciliter. According to an unaffiliated 2009 study by the National Institutes of Health, five million men have low testosterone.
While low levels of testosterone won’t threaten a man’s life, the condition can lead to a reduction in quality of life. Testosterone deficiency is typically only treated for symptoms as therapies to treat low testosterone levels are still under testing and review. Only a small percentage of men in the study exhibited symptoms of lower levels of testosterone. More research will be required to fully understand the relationship between diet and testosterone levels. Still, our findings point to evidence that diet is a major indicator when it comes to overall health and wellness.

Diet may impact low testosterone
Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 18, 2014
There is little doubt that advancements in the area of mens health, together with the age-old pursuit of an elusive fountain of youth, have fueled an explosion in sales of testosterone products. The phenomenon is driving billions of dollars worth of sales* towards the testosterone supplement industry. According to a report in The New York Times (10/15/13), one testosterone drug, AndroGel, manufactured by AbbVie, generated over $2 billion in sales in 2012. The report also states that that figure has been forecast to double by 2017.*
The use of testosterone supplements, however, has caught the ire of some health criticsin addition to at least one testosterone lawsuit**– who advocate for caution claiming that increased levels of testosterone could trigger cardiovascular issues such as a heart attack, or stroke in otherwise healthy men. For example, a recent study published in PLOS One*** (January, 2014) noted that testosterone therapy doubled the risk of heart attack in men over the age of 65. An earlier study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (11/06/13) **** concluded, following a study of data related to men in the Veterans Affairs health care system, that the use of testosterone therapy was associated with increased risk of adverse outcomes, such as heart attack and stroke.
However, not everyone agrees that testosterone is the marauding juggernaut some make it out to be. Noted physician Dr. Abraham Morgantaler, an Associate Clinical Professor of Urology at Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Director of Mens Health Boston, said in comments to LawyersandSettlements.coms Brenda Craig that he doesnt buy into the current fear mongering over testosterone therapy and heart issues. In fact, he maintains the opposite is true. For 30 years there has been a substantial body of literature that has shown that low levels of testosterone are associated with increased cardiovascular risks, he said. Morgantaler, and colleagues in the Androgen Study Group, has petitioned for the retraction of a study published late last year in JAMA,***** first published online November 6, 2013 linking the treatment for testosterone deficiency with increased rates for heart attack and stroke. Morgantaler, in comments to journalist Craig, noted that in his view and those of his colleagues in the Androgen Study Group, the study was flawed. Among other allegations of a flawed study, Morgantaler notes that 10 percent of study participants were women and non-users of testosterone.
I call this medical literature malpractice, Morgantaler said.
LawyersandSettlements.coms Craig also spoke with Dr. Michael Carome, an advocate with Public Citizen and Director of their Health Research Group, who agreed the JAMA study***** is probably the weakest of the studies on this issue, he said. Carome, however, is among the camp who warns of cardiovascular risk from increased testosterone use. In combination with all the other information and recent studies and evidence of increased risk of cardiovascular disease with these drugs, there is a clear need for a stronger warning on the labels.
In its petition to the US regulator, Dr. Carome and colleague Dr. Sidney Wolfe, MD cited various studies, including Basaria et al, July 2010 , a study that was terminated early when a randomized trial of 209 men resulted in a five-fold increase in heart attack and stroke. Public Citizen also referenced Finkle et al, 2014 , which was a study underwritten by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and involving 45 times as many men using testosterone (55,593) than any previous, single study. Study authors concluded that a risk for heart attack amongst study participants 65 and over following use of testosterone therapy for three months was twice that of the risk for the men in the year before use. In men under 65 with a history of heart disease, there was a 2.9-fold increased risk for heart attack.
Testosterone supplementation has been used for decades, with much success, to treat extremely low levels of testosterone encountered by men suffering from hypogonadism, a congenital condition characterized by the failure of testes to descend. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy can also experience low levels of testosterone, for which testosterone supplementation is viewed as a benefit.
Dr. Carome, however, is concerned with the overuse of testosterone for largely non-medical reasons. The problem is these drugs are being over prescribed in the US and many people who do not have hypogonadism are being prescribed these drugs, says Dr. Carome.
While Dr. Carome, and Dr. Morgantaler reflect opposing views, there is some common ground. Both take issue with the accuracy and validity of the JAMA**** study. And both experts agree that testosterone, regardless of ones position on its risks, should only be at play within the context of sound, medical diagnosis and need, rather than hyperbole.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 19, 2014
As AndroGel and other hormone-raising therapies continue to be named in testosterone lawsuit (http://www.testosteronelawsuitclaims.com/) allegations, Bernstein Liebhard LLP has launched a new website for men who may be eligible to file a case of their own.
The Firms new site will include updates on claims that have already been filed over this testosterone treatment therapy, as well as several other Low T prescription medications. According to court records, a number of AndroGel lawsuit filings are now pending in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois on behalf of men who allege that use of drug may lead to strokes, heart attacks, dangerous blood clots and other complications. (Case Nos: 1:14-cv-00776, 1:14-cv-00780, 1:14-cv-00777, and 1:14-cv-00772)
The new website from Bernstein Liebhard LLP will educate potential claimants on the process of filing a case alleging similar injuries resulting from their use of Testim, Axiron and other similarly-designed products, including AndroGel.
Our Firm continues to hear from men who allegedly sustained strokes, heart attacks, and other side effects stemming from Low T treatment therapies, so we recognized the importance of launching a website that provides them with the information they need to file a testosterone lawsuit, says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective medical devices and drugs. The Firm is currently offering free legal reviews to anyone who claims to have suffered serious heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, after taking a prescription testosterone therapy.
According to a brief filed on March 28th with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), some 30 AndroGel lawsuits have now been filed in the Northern District of Illinois. The brief was filed by plaintiffs in these cases, who asked that all similar claims be transferred to the jurisdiction, where they would be coordinated by a single judge. (In Re: AndroGel Product Liability Litigation, No. 36, JPML)
The federal Panel has not announced its decision to approve or deny this request.
In addition to AndroGel lawsuits centralized in Illinois federal court, several other testosterone lawsuits are currently pending in courts throughout the U.S. Court records show that two claims over Testim were filed in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania on March 10th and 25th on behalf of men who were allegedly injured by the medication. (Case Nos. 140301684 and 140302537) On February 26th, another lawsuit over the medication was filed in the Northern District of California. (Case No. 14-278)
All these claims similarly allege that certain Low T treatments like AndroGel are aggressively marketed by manufacturers to treat low libido, fatigue and other common symptoms of aging. In turn, more men have been prescribed testosterone-raising medications that are only approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat low levels stemming from another medical condition, such as hypogonadism (low or no testosterone).
How are Human Growth Hormone and Aging Linked, and How Can I Increase my HGH Levels?
Human Growth Hormone is one of the most important hormones that the human body produces. Although we tend to think of HGH as a hormone which is only active during puberty, it actually plays a role in our health all the way through our lifespan, from the day we are born until the day we die. Of course, our body has different needs for Human Growth Hormone throughout the lifespan.
Importance of HGH Early in Life
When we are young, we need Human Growth Hormone in order to grow properly. HGH is directly responsible for the metabolic processes which lead to bone growth, organ growth, and the increase in height associated with childhood development. Before puberty, we produce a high, yet steady amount of Human Growth Hormone, but when puberty hits, our Growth Hormone Production absolutely skyrockets.
Importance of HGH during Puberty
Puberty occurs primarily as a result of two factors. First, the brain amps up HGH Secretion, causing children to quickly grow into adolescents. The second primary change associated with puberty is that the body becomes flush with sex hormones, triggering sexual differentiation. Young girls start to produce high levels of Estrogen, develop breasts, and begin menstruation, and boys start to produce high levels of Testosterone, triggering changes such as the development of facial hair, stronger muscles, and a deeper voice.
Importance of HGH in Adulthood
Now, we all know that Testosterone and Estrogen are important throughout our adult life, but many people might think that Human Growth Hormone Production stops being important after we have completed the growth associated with puberty. This is not the case. Human Growth Hormone is intrinsically important to most aspects of metabolic health, and Growth Hormone Deficiency can have devastating effects upon human health.
After puberty, the body drops Human Growth Hormone secretion significantly. This is important, because Human Growth Hormone production over a certain threshold contributes to increases in bone growth, but at the end of puberty, this becomes impossible, because the growth plates, also known as the Epiphyseal Plates, close.
Beyond this point, having too much Human Growth Hormone leads to HGH Overdose, causing the bones to thicken and become misshapen, and the organs to grow.
After puberty, Human Growth Hormone production drops to a rate at which it maintains a state of Hormonal Homeostasis, with the perfect amount of Human Growth Hormone Secretion to encourage optimal function. This period of optimal HGH Secretion lasts for a period of ten to fifteen years, until we reach our late twenties or early thirties. At this point, Human Growth Hormone Release starts to slowly, yet steadily decline.
HGH Production Declines in the Late Twenties
The exact speed at which this change takes place varies somewhat from person to person, but the rate tends to range from between one to two percent per year depending upon the variables of the individual.
How are Human Growth Hormone Deficiency and Aging Linked?
As scientists learn more and more about the aging process, and the changes that take place, they are discovering that HGH Deficiency plays a major role in how aging occurs. Human Growth Hormone plays a central role in cellular reproduction and rejuvenation, and as HGH Levels drop, the regenerative capacity of the body is no longer able to keep up with the rate of natural decline, which leads to numerous symptoms that we associate with aging, such as muscle atrophy, fat development, Osteoporosis, and the decreased ability to fight illness and infection.
After Human Growth Hormone Production wanes, you can expect to experience around a fifteen percent decline in HGH each year. By the time you make it to forty five, your Human Growth Hormone Production will likely drop to a point in which you start to experience real issues as a result, especially if you are experiencing a severe deficiency.
Sermorelin Acetate and Bio-Identical HGH
Although HGH Deficiency is a major issue that all of us will have to face one day, there are a number of things that you can do to help restore your Human Growth Hormone Levels and live a longer and happier life.
For patients that are suffering from a severe deficiency, however, the most effective means of treatment will be the use of Hormone Replacement Therapy. Hormone Replacement Therapy means using outside sources of hormones that our bodies produce in order to restore a healthier hormone balance.
There are two ways that we can increase HGH Production using Hormone Replacement Therapy. The most direct form of Hormone Replacement Therapy for HGH Deficiency is Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone via injection. HGH Injections are delivered subcutaneously, beneath the skin, generally on a daily basis. The Human Growth Hormone that you inject into your body is exactly the same as the HGH that your pituitary gland produces naturally.
The second way to medically restore Human Growth Hormone Levels is by using Sermorelin Acetate. Sermorelin Acetate is a functionally identical form of a hormone known as Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone. GH-RH is the direct precursor to Human Growth Hormone, and is released by the Hypothalamus. When the pituitary is stimulated by GH-RH, it directly responds by releasing Human Growth Hormone into the bloodstream.
Why Don’t Doctors Prescribe Bio-Identical GH-RH?
Sermorelin Acetate Injections have the exact same effect upon the body as the natural release of GH-RH, while being a truncated form of the hormone. Sermorelin Acetate is actually a chain of the first 29 amino acids that comprise GH-RH. Beyond those first 29, the final portion of GH-RH has no effect upon human physiology. Because of this, doctors use the truncated Sermorelin Acetate molecule because it is cheaper to produce while having the exact same level of effectiveness.
Natural Ways to Boost HGH Production
Of course, not everyone qualifies for Sermorelin Acetate Injections or HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy. Luckily, there are a number of things that you can do as a health-conscious individual in order to increase your body’s capacity to produce more Human Growth Hormone naturally. Inevitably, you will still experience decline, but there are healthy ways that you can slow down the severity of that decline, increasing your overall health and wellness while postponing your need for HGH Injections.
Exercise to Boost HGH
Physical activity is one of the most effective ways to increase Human Growth Hormone Production naturally. Exercise is one of the two main times during which HGH Production is stimulated. Although all forms of vigorous exercise have a positive impact on Growth Hormone Release, HGH is secreted in its highest amounts during hard and vigorous spurts of exercise.
If you like to run, incorporate a series of sprints into your route. Pushing your body to the limit for brief periods of time causes your body to release high levels of Human Growth Hormone.
One reason that Human Growth Hormone Release is promoted as a result of exercise is because the body uses Human Growth Hormone as a mechanism to break down and release lactic acid from the muscles. Vigorous exercise stimulates the development of lactic acid in the muscles, because lactic acid is a critical component of anaerobic energy production.
HGH Speeds up Recovery Time
In addition to helping you exercise harder, Human Growth Hormone also speeds up the rate at which the body recovers from vigorous exercise, allowing you to work out harder and more often. Although Human Growth Hormone does not directly stimulate increases in strength, it passively increases this strength by increasing your muscles’ capacity for work.
Boosting HGH with Weight Lifting
You can also boost HGH Secretion through Anaerobic Weight Lifting. When you lift weights, your body produces a lot of Human Growth Hormone. The amount that you release depends upon the size and number of muscles you work out, so the muscles of the legs and the core are most effective at boosting Human Growth Hormone, although you will want to work out your entire body, of course.
HGH Secretion is also dependent upon the way that you exercise. HGH is Stimulated most effectively by lower reps of higher resistance, rather than lower weights associated with increased tone. In addition to this, you can also increase Growth Hormone Production by performing your reps very slowly. By performing high levels of resistance very slowly, you maximize your body’s release of powerful HGH.
Diet to Boost HGH
Another way to boost your natural production of Human Growth Hormone is through diet and weight maintenance. Unhealthy diets are associated with increased levels of Insulin Production. Although Insulin and Human Growth Hormone share some similarities, they are relatively antagonistic in nature. The more Insulin your body produces, the less Human Growth Hormone your body will release.
In addition to this, Insulin decreases the effectiveness of Human Growth Hormone that is already in your system. If you are relatively young and overweight, the best way that you can increase Growth Hormone Release is simply by losing weight.
How to Control Insulin Production Effectively
Besides simply losing weight, you can regulate your insulin production by avoiding foods high in sugar, or foods that have high levels of simple carbohydrates. Simple sugars and carb consumption leads directly to spikes in insulin that directly antagonize healthy Human Growth Hormone production.
In regard to your diet, itself, you should be eating a significant, yet healthy, amount of high-quality lean protein, while minimizing your consumption of saturated fat. Although saturated fat is a necessary part of a healthy diet, almost everyone in America includes far too much saturated fat in the diet. Ideally, you should find filling and healthy sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, as well as reasonable amounts of monounsaturated fat.
Sleep to Boost HGH
The most effective way to maintain normalized Human Growth Hormone Levels is through healthy sleep. Although vigorous physical activity can increase HGH Production, if you sleep poorly, your body’s ability to make it’s own Growth Hormone will be severely limited. You see, HGH is produced at levels higher during sleep than any other part of the day.
This doesn’t mean that you can sleep 6 hours a night, though. Human Growth Hormone is stimulated by a particular type of sleep. Human Growth Hormone is secreted at its highest levels during the third and fourth stages of sleep, which are the deepest. If you don’t get your body’s natural requirement for sleep each night, this promotes restlessness which keeps you from reaching these deep and restorative sleep phases.
Cortisol and Sleep
Healthy sleeping habits are also related to normalized cortisol production. Ideally, your cortisol levels will be at their highest in the mornings, because this is one of the ways that your body wakes itself up. If your sleeping schedule gets out of whack, this can cause your cortisol to peak at abnormal times.
If your cortisol levels are abnormally high as you are falling asleep, this also prevents you from sleeping deeply, preventing you from getting the healing HGH that your body so desperately needs.
Supplements to Boost HGH
There are certain amino acid supplements that have been proven to at least slightly elevate HGH, while providing other benefits as well. Of course, if you are suffering from acute Human Growth Hormone Deficiency, simply supplementing your diet with amino acids won’t be nearly enough, but if you are just looking for additional means to coax your body into producing just a little more Human Growth Hormone, supplements are a great way to maximize your natural production.
A few examples of supplements that can increase HGH Levels are L-Arginine, L-Citrulline, and Glutamine. If you are looking for natural sources of L-Arginine, they can be found in flax seed, sunflower seeds, and various types of nuts. It can also be found in whole grain, salmon, shrimp, and egg yolk. If you are looking for L-Citrulline, the best sources are watermelon, garlic, and onions. For Glutamine, look to whole wheat, beans, cabbage, spinach, chicken, and dairy.
Dangers of HGH Sprays and HGH Pills
Although HGH Hormone Replacement Therapy is a legitimate and effective medical treatment, there are many supplements that attempt to replicate the benefits of Human Growth Hormone Injections by other means. If you take nothing else from this article, remember that there is no such thing as an effective Growth Hormone Pill or Growth Hormone Spray. The only effective means of delivering Human Growth Hormone is through injection.
Growth Hormone is a Unique Molecule
You see, Human Growth Hormone is the most complex hormone created by the human body. Because of its unusually large size, it is impossible to deliver Human Growth Hormone by any means other than injection. HGH Molecules are too large to penetrate through the skin. Human Growth Hormone is also too large to penetrate mucous membranes, such as those in the nose.
Oral HGH Bad for the Liver
Oral Human Growth Hormone can even be dangerous. The stomach is designed to break down complex molecules into their component ingredients by means of hydrochloric acid contained within the stomach. There are some hormones that can survive this process, but HGH is inevitably torn into amino acid fragments.
These fragments do nothing more than provide a negligible and temporary boost in Growth Hormone Levels. The downside is that the liver and kidneys aren’t designed to pass large amounts of these Peptide fragments, and over time, HGH Pills can cause liver and kidney damage.
Only Obtain HGH by Prescription
The only Human Growth Hormone that you can trust is that which is prescribed by a doctor and provided by a licensed and accredited pharmacist.
Promote Optimal Health by Maintaining Human Growth Hormone Balance
These are all ways that you can conscientiously increase your natural Human Growth Hormone Production. Remember though, that although these steps can help promote healthier production of HGH, one day, there is a significant chance that these methods will longer be enough to stimulate the healthy production of Human Growth Hormone.

The Inevitability of Andropause
Although not as sudden and severe as menopause, Andropause is a significant issue which will eventually affect every man’s life and vitality. Andropause is the slow period of hormonal change which begins to take effect during the middle of a man’s life. Although hormonal decline begins long before it becomes symptomatic, the symptoms generally begin to appear even in healthy men around the age of menopause in women.
What Triggers Andropause?
We still have a lot to learn about Andropause. We understand a lot about how hormone decline takes place, but researchers do not fully understand the whys. What we do know is that both Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone Levels peak during the teens and twenties, before entering a life long slow state of decline in the late twenties or early thirties. Hormone Decline is nefarious.
Although you won’t recognize the changes from year to year, over the course of many years, the way your body feels and reacts to stimuli will change shockingly over the course of a ten to fifteen year span. On average, both Testosterone Levels and Human Growth Hormone Levels will drop at a rate of about one to two percent per year, depending upon your health and genetics.
People who have poor exercise habits and those that are obese will experience these changes more quickly than those that are healthy. This means that you lose ten to twenty percent of your hormone production every decade!
Although Andropause is an inevitability, there are fantastic treatment options available for men that feel that the symptoms are having a negative effect upon the way that they live and enjoy life. Hormone Replacement Therapy is a clinically proven medical treatment which has been shown to resolve Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone Deficiency effectively, helping you live a happier and more productive life.
How does Low-T Happen?
There is a particular biological process that occurs over time which leads directly to the Low Testosterone Levels of Andropause. When we are young, robust, and healthy, the hypothalamus sends strong and frequent signals to the pituitary gland to release Testosterone precursors to the testes. As a result, the body creates ample amounts of Testosterone, enough to contribute fully to a vibrant and energetic lifestyle.
As a man gets older, however, the hypothalamus starts to send weaker signals for those Testosterone Precursors, which prevent the testes from receiving sufficient signals for Testosterone Production. This leads to the hallmark symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency.
Symptoms of Testosterone Deficiency
Fatigue Testosterone is a powerful metabolite, generating energy for the body. Without healthy T-Levels, men start to become tired and exhausted more easily.
Increased Weight Gain Testosterone is important, because it acts as a counterbalance for forces in your body that cause you to gain weight. Without enough Testosterone, your body will produce abnormally high levels of Estrogen and Cortisol, which both encourage fat accumulation.
Irritability Testosterone is a central aspect of a healthy male psychology. Healthy T-Levels promote assertiveness and positive outlook. Low-T often causes men to experience problems with anxiety and irritability.
Loss of Muscle Mass Testosterone is the most powerful anabolic hormone produced by the human body. A man’s testosterone is what causes him to have a body that’s fit and strong. Without sufficient Testosterone, muscle mass will inevitably decline.
Depression Research has also shown that Low-T can have a significant effect upon happiness and feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment. Testosterone Deficiency can eat away at your very ability to enjoy life.
Erectile Dysfunction Testosterone Deficiency can also destroy your sex drive and your ability to even engage in enjoyable sexual activity Testosterone is the match that lights the fuse of sexuality, and without enough of it, you won’t be able to fuel your desire.
Treating Andropause-Related Low-T
Although many forms of Testosterone Deficiency can be resolved or alleviated by changing one’s health habits, Andropause is a problem because there is no way to improve your Testosterone Levels beyond a certain baseline. That’s no reason to resign yourself to this intensely negative aspect of the aging process, however.
Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy has been proven in the lab and in the field to effectively bring Testosterone Levels up to the healthy levels of early adulthood. The medical form of Testosterone is Biologically Identical to the Testosterone your own body generates, so there is no risk of rejection. Testosterone HRT can quickly and safely restore more normal and healthy T-Production.
Testosterone Treatments are offered in a number of different ways, its just up to you to choose which form of treatment appeals to you. There are Testosterone Patches, Pellets, Implants, Creams and Sprays available which can help promote a healthier and brighter you!
How does Andropause-related HGH Deficiency Happen?
Andropause causes both Testosterone Deficiency and Growth Hormone Deficiency through similar mechanisms. Like Testosterone, Human Growth Hormone Production is ultimately mediated by the hypothalamus. When your hypothalamus receives signs that the body needs HGH, it sends a hormone called Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone to the pituitary, which directly stimulates tiny organs in the pituitary known as Somatotrophs to release HGH into the body.
As you enter your late twenties or early thirties, the signals for Human Growth Hormone production start to weaken. There is no known biological advantage for this to occur, but it has a devastating effect on the way that men live their lives.
Symptoms of Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone share some symptoms, while Human Growth Hormone Deficiency produces some unique problems as well:
Reduced Muscle Mass Although Testosterone promotes muscle mass through anabolic means, Human Growth Hormone also stimulates muscle mass by enhancing the body’s ability to repair the muscles after exercise. Men with HGH Deficiency have trouble achieving gains as quickly from workouts, and they take longer to recover physically from exercise.
Increased Fat Mass Like Testosterone, Human Growth Hormone is another powerful metabolite produced by the human body to promote healthy weight. HGH Production is negatively affected by obesity and weight gain, creating a terrible cycle of weight gain which is incredibly difficult to triumph over.
Osteoporosis Although Low-T Levels have an affect upon bone health as well, HGH Deficiency has a far more dangerous effect upon bone health. Human Growth Hormone promotes the healthy cycling of bone material, and it also maintains healthy and smooth cartilage.
Weakened Immune System Growth Hormone is one of the key components which preserve healthy cellular function and division. Men with HGH Deficiency often get sick more easily and take longer to recover from illness, because the body starts to divert energy to other processes.
Lack of Energy Human Growth Hormone activates energy from fat tissue, giving the body a healthy influx of energy throughout the day. Andropause can reduce the ability of HGH to unlock the energy of adipose fat, slowing you down and making you groggy and fatigued. Andropause can also upset the delicate balance between insulin and HGH, further depressing Growth Hormone Levels, especially after meals loaded with carbs and sugars.
Cholesterol Imbalance Healthy Levels of HGH are also intimately correlated with healthy cholesterol balance. Studies have shown that Low-T has the terrible effect of simultaneously increasing HDL Cholesterol Levels and decreasing LDL Cholesterol Levels.
Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy
HGH Deficiency caused by Andropause has a devastating effect on human health and well being, but there are two amazing ways to restore healthy Human Growth Hormone Levels in order to stimulate a stronger and healthier body and mind. The first of these treatment options is Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone HRT.
Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy restores GH Levels by providing the body with a stable outside source of the hormone. Unlike Testosterone Replacement Therapy, as of today, there is only one way to provide this treatment: via injection. Human Growth Hormone Injections are administered via Subcutaneous Injection, meaning that a small gauge needle delivers the medication just below the top layers of the skin.
These injections are easy to administer and no more painful than an insulin injection. The injections are required on a daily basis, and over the course of a few months, the benefits of the treatment will fully take hold. You will likely experience some benefits related to energy, cognition, and temperament very quickly, while physical changes will begin to take place over a slightly longer period of time.
Sermorelin Acetate Therapy
Another form of therapy which restores Human Growth Hormone Levels effectively is known as Sermorelin Acetate Therapy. Sermorelin Acetate is a medical version of the precursor hormone which stimulates the production of Human Growth Hormone, known as Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone. Although the two are biologically different, they have the same functional effect upon the human body. Sermorelin Acetate is simply a truncated version of the GH-RH molecule itself. Like Bio-Identical HGH, Sermorelin Acetate is also provided only via subcutaneous injection.
Why Choose Sermorelin Acetate over Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone?
Although what medication you choose is ultimately up to the judgment of you and a medical professional, Sermorelin Acetate functions slightly differently within the human body than injectable HGH. When you inject Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone, you directly replace HGH that the body is not sufficiently producing on its own. Because of this, the body has no means of regulating HGH Levels.
Sermorelin Acetate Injections, on the other hand, deliver GH-RH, which is regulated in the brain by a hormone known as Somatostatin. When the body senses that it has enough HGH in its system, it releases Somatostatin to block receptors in the pituitary which stimulate HGH Production. Via this method, the body receives exactly as much Human Growth Hormone as it needs, preventing the risk of abuse and overdose.
In addition to this, the brain is able to release Human Growth Hormone naturally via the pituitary, preserving pituitary function, and providing HGH to the body on its own, natural terms. Some studies suggest that because Sermorelin Acetate Injections promote natural HGH Release Patterns, it helps the body use HGH more effectively, and prevents the development of hormone tolerance.
