Could Low Levels of Growth Hormone be Affecting Your Cholesterol?

Could Low Levels of Growth Hormone be Affecting Your Cholesterol?


Did you know that Human Growth Hormone has a huge impact on cholesterol levels? Many studies have proven that HGH has the power to lower bad cholesterol levels (LDLs) and increase good cholesterol (HDLs) in the body.

Human Growth Hormone, also known as HGH, is a chemical produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. The body produces human growth hormone throughout life. It's primary function in childhood is stimulating bone growth. However, once puberty is reached, levels of the hormone naturally begin to decline. We also physically begin to see and feel this hormonal decline with age, and common signs of aging become more prevalent. For example, the metabolism begins to slow down dramatically and the chance of weight gain steadily goes up. This increase in weight gain, loss of energy, and often an increase in sedentary lifestyle that typically accompanies aging can be attributed to lack of growth hormone. Extra weight gain itself then has a lot of negative impacts on the body including plaque build up in the arteries. This form of cholesterol that causes plaque to build up in the arteries can produce a disease known as atherosclerosis, which can be very dangerous. This plaque build up can actually break away from the arterial walls triggering blood clots and can also block blood flow to the brain and heart resulting in a stroke and/or heart attack. Research has also shown that HGH lowers levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood. Reduced CRP levels are typically noted with a decrease risk for heart problems.

With increased HGH, muscle mass and energy levels actual improve and wrinkled skin and body fat decreases. HGH not only reverses signs of aging, but it may just save your life.

Individuals should only take HGH or HGH peptide boosters, such as Sermorelin, through a licensed physician's care. They should also make sure to document and keep track of their cholesterol levels.
