HGH Benefits for Weight Loss

HGH Benefits for Weight Loss

Human growth hormone decline may be the reason why people tend to gain weight as they age.

The more we learn about the benefits of HGH for weight loss, the better able we are to help people get rid of those excess stubborn pounds and support the body’s proper metabolic functions.

How to Lose Weight with HGH

HGH benefits for weight loss do more than just help you burn through stored fat – you will also reset your metabolism to function as it did when you were years younger.

Human growth hormone plays many different roles in the body. Through its various receptor cells located in the brain and on tissues, it controls, regulates, and stimulates a wide range of functions.

Fat cells each have growth hormone receptors. When HGH binds with the receptors on fat cells, it initiates enzyme reactions that break down fat in the cells. This process is known as lipolysis. As the fat breaks down, it can then be flushed out and washed away – hence the recommendation of drinking a lot of water when trying to lose weight.

HGH and Metabolism

The best way to explain how HGH benefits weight loss is by looking at its direct impact on the metabolism.

The body consumes proteins, lipids (fats), and carbohydrates. HGH exerts either a direct or indirect effect on each of these areas.

Protein Metabolism

The HGH effects on weight loss begin with protein metabolism. Here, HGH works in both a direct and indirect way, as follows:

  • Direct – HGH stimulates tissue protein anabolism, increasing the uptake of amino acids and decreasing protein oxidation
  • Indirect – through its mediator insulin growth factor 1 (which HGH stimulates the production of by the liver), HGH increases the body’s demands of protein by strengthening the muscles. The result is increased protein metabolism by the body – reducing the ability of fat conversion.

Carbohydrate Metabolism

The HGH benefits for weight loss through carbohydrate metabolism occur as growth hormone promotes anti-insulin activity by suppressing the ability of insulin to stimulate the peripheral tissue uptake of glucose.

Carbohydrate intake increases blood glucose levels and if consumed at night, can also hinder growth hormone release.

Lipid Metabolism

The direct effect of HGH on fat metabolism occurs through triglyceride breakdown. HGH also increased adipocyte oxidation. HGH also reduces LDL cholesterol levels.

How to Lose Weight with HGH

HGH is not a diet. You will not lose five pounds a week starting with your first shot. It is important to understand this so that you do not have unrealistic expectations.

As one of the many HGH benefits, weight loss will occur as the body’s natural metabolic process start to function at a higher level of efficiency.

Most adults can expect to lose about 10 percent of their fat mass while improving lean mass at roughly the same percentage over a treatment period of six months. This does not always translate to an abundant weight loss as lean muscle weighs more than fat.

What you will notice is an overall toning effect occurring in your body. Muscles will become more defined as fat starts to slowly melt away. This change becomes most noticeable in the third month of HGH therapy and continues after that.

To increase your weight loss while using HGH injections, we recommend increasing your physical activity – especially high-intensity output. Consuming a healthy diet, getting enough sleep (7 to 9 hours), and reducing stress will all support your weight loss with HGH.

You should not have to worry about any HGH for weight loss side effects as long as your HGH therapy was prescribed by an experienced doctor following comprehensive blood analysis. Only people with a verifiable human growth hormone deficiency should use HGH injections.
