Steroids Vs Human Growth Hormone

Brief and Straightforward Guide on: Steroids Vs Human Growth Hormone
Understanding The Human Growth Hormone

The Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a protein based hormone, secreted by the Adenohypophysis or the anterior portion of the Pituitary Gland. Comprising of 191 amino acids, this poly-peptide hormone, is naturally synthesized and released by the Somatotrophs (cells located in the anterior lobe of the Pituitary Gland). The Human Growth Hormone (also called Somatotrophin), controls a host of important functions and metabolic processes in the body, and hence, is called the key hormone. It stimulates cell reproduction and tissue repair, governs the replacement of the cells, directs the working of various enzymes and hormones, and controls brain functions.

HGH is responsible for normal growth and development in children and adolescents, and, in adults, it performs the chief function of sustaining muscle mass, maintaining ideal body weight, boosting energy levels, providing vigor, and staving off aging.
