Can Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Delay Aging?

- Oct 04, 2019-

As we age, the skin begins to thin, gradually losing muscle and bone, and increasing body fat. These changes are part of the aging process.

Years ago, a study of the effects of Human Growth Hormone on healthy adults was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. In the study, twelve (aged 61-81 years) men continued to receive human growth hormone for six months. As a result, it was found that these people's skin became thicker, muscle mass increased, bone density increased, and fat mass decreased. Their overall changes after treatment are:

Skin thickness increased by 7%;

Muscle mass increased by 8.7%;

Bone density increased by 1.6%;

Adipose tissue decreased by 14.4%.

Therefore, scientists have concluded that human growth hormone has a delay in aging and can even reverse this process.
