If you are considering any form of hormone therapy, the Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is an option you should become familiar with. Hormone therapy can help balance the decline of hormones that occurs as individuals age. In general, HGH begins to decline when an individual reaches the age of 30. While this is a natural process, the sudden imbalance of hormones can cause a range of symptoms. In this article, we will discuss what HGH peptide therapy is, the benefits, how it works, and what to expect.
What is HGH Peptide Therapy?
First, let’s discuss what HGH peptide therapy is. This treatment uses peptides (short-chain amino acids) to target specific systems in the body. Specifically, the HGH secretagogue peptide is used to increase growth hormone levels in a more natural way than alternative treatment options such as recombinant HGH, or rhGH.
When your HGH levels are balanced, the body functions in a healthier way that can improve your quality of life. Studies have shown that the hormone can have an impact on mood, weight, energy, and mental clarity. There are two main forms of FDA approved HGH secretagogues: Sermorelin and Tesamorelin. These forms are generally safe and effective in treating HGH deficiencies.
HGH levels decline with age, however, when these levels decline at a faster rate than normal, they can cause a variety of uncomfortable symptoms such as loss of muscle mass and lower endurance. HGH Secretagogue can help improve these symptoms as well as improve other body systems from increasing brain function to increasing sexual function.
HGH peptide therapy stimulates the release of hormones in the body to produce balanced levels and improve uncomfortable symptoms of HGH deficiency. In turn, these hormones send messages to the brain that begin chemical reactions necessary for higher cognitive function. This may improve memory, alertness, motivation, concentration, and even prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Skin and Hair
When your hormones are out of balance, your skin and hair are often the first to be impacted. It is common to see thinning or damaged hair and thinning and loose skin in individuals that have an HGH deficiency, experience the impact of aging, or have unbalanced hormones. By stimulating the hormones in the body, more nutrients are diverted to the skin and hair allowing them to absorb more collagen, thicken, and tighten.
Interruptions in your body often cause interruptions in your sleep which can have an impact on your mood, energy levels, brain function, and other body functions. Research shows that HGH can improve sleep quality, however, it is important to note that it may not have an impact on sleep conditions such as insomnia or apnea.
HGH also stimulates a range of immune system responses that can increase the number of red and white blood cells in the body. This improves your body’s ability to fight disease and heal more effectively.
HGH secretagogue has been shown to reduce the risk of a variety of heart conditions such as irregular heartbeat, stroke, or heart attack.
As individuals experience a loss in endurance and strength, it is common to experience loss of muscle mass and increased body fat. HGH can Improve strength and metabolism which, in turn, can reduce body fat and improve overall health. Sermorelin is known to increase lean muscle and reduce body fat.
As mentioned above, HGH improves your body functions on a cellular level in the immune system which improves the body’s healing responses. This includes the bones! In addition, it can improve bone density.
It’s no secret that sexual function can decline as an individual ages. When you stimulate the production of hormones that decline as we age, it is common to see improvements in all areas that have been, including sexual functions.
Oftentimes, when people refer to sexual function in aging individuals they are referring to male function which may leave you wondering “what does HGH do for females?” HGH provides sexual function benefits for both men and women including the following.
- Increased desire
- Faster arousal
- Stronger erections

How it Works
There are many questions that you might have concerning how HGH treatment actually works such as, “How do I get started with HGH treatment?” “What HGH treatment delivery options are available?” “How long does it take for HGH to work?”
Getting started with treatment is simple. Start by finding a hormone therapy clinic that you trust and schedule a consultation. Telehealth hormone therapy clinics can perform consultations online so you don’t have to wait for an office visit. Your consulting physician orders labs to determine your individual hormone levels that will be used to create your treatment plan.
You and your physician will develop a personalized treatment plan designed for your body. The most effective delivery method for HGH treatment is subcutaneous injections. It is important to note that hormone therapy takes time to achieve results as your body adjusts to new levels. In addition, every patient is different. Some individuals experience changes such as improved quality of sleep as early as the first week of treatment, however, it can take up to six months to see the full effect of the treatment.
