Human Growth Hormone (HGH) - In treatment

Font : A-A+

Elixir of youth- in treatment

Coming to the much-hyped HGH-elixir of youth part, HGH is so sought after because although it is produced in plenty when one is young, there is a gradual decline in its production as one grows older. This accounts for the appearance of grey hair, weight gain, loss in memory, brittle nails, wrinkled skin and loss of vitality in older people.

Utilizing the property of HGH, the new science of cosmetology administers this hormone to the body to replenish it in the system.

The hormone is given to people to make them look and feel much younger than they actually are! HGH thus prevents biological ageing to some extent.

It has the approval of FDA for HGH therapy in cases of adults in the treatment of hypopituitarism and somatotropin deficiency.

Today HGH is available in the form of capsules or injections to restore youthful looks and energy. It is yet to get the approval of FDA as the elixir of youth.

The (tall) claims made by cosmetic therapy companies for HGH therapy include the following:
