In this day and age, it seems that more and more women and young teens
are starving themselves to be in the current "skinny mode". Why is this
In this overly commercially orientated world, with skinny models all over
the world, and people trying to emulate that "look". I am quite sure it started with
Twiggy, in the 1960's. I think Twiggy was smart. She looked at her skinny little
frame and realized that she was not like most girls, so instead of hiding herself
she flaunted it.

Anti-Aging, Longevity, Building Lean Body Mass, and Rejuvenating Sexual
What if you had a natural and safe product with clinically proven
results in the battle against aging? What if you could reverse aging? Looking,
feeling, and performing 10, even 20 years younger?
What if you could burn fat without dieting or exercising; increase your
muscle mass without exercise; improve your sexual drive and performance;
enhance your athletic performance and endurance; have younger, tighter,
thicker skin; eliminate cellulite; dramatically support truly refreshing
deep sleep; build stronger bones; alleviate menopause and male
"andropause"; improve your cholesterol and triglyceride profiles;
strengthen your heart while lowering blood pressure; even improve your
hair growth and texture; improve mood, memory and concentration; strengthen
your immune system; and likely add years to your life?
Well... with human growth hormone (Hgh) enhancements you can. Over
28,000 medical studies say you can!
Indeed, a 10 year study just completed in June 1998 for the National
Institute of Aging state the results with human growth hormone, also
known as Hgh, "are too good to be true!"
What is Hgh?
Nestled in the center of our heads there sits a rather tiny but very
powerful gland called the pituitary gland. Hgh is one of 7 hormones
secreted by the pituitary. Growth hormone, like thyroid hormone, has
an effect on almost all our tissues and organs. As the name implies, it
enhances the growth of various organs and tissues, especially muscle and
bone. Basically, human growth hormone increases protein synthesis.
Proteins are the major building block out of which our body is made.
Normal secretion of Hgh occurs in a daily cycle, like a tide. It varies
with exercise, sleep, stress and nutrition.
Why Does Hgh Enhancement Help?
As we hit middle age, there is a natural decline in hormone production,
not only of Hgh, but estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, androstenedione, and
testosterone. With advancing age, an increase in the incidence of
osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, mood and memory disorders, loss
of libido, , etc. occurs. Also, central obesity increases and muscles
shrink. Scientific studies are demonstrating a causal relationship between the
decline in hormone levels and an increased incidence of the
aforementioned conditions. The exciting development is that by replacing these
hormones, these developments can actually be reversed. Hormone replacement for
estrogen, thyroid and now progesterone are commonplace. Is Hgh next?
What's the Downside?
Hgh was only used for children with certain growth disorders until the
mid 1980's. It was extremely expensive, as the only source was human
Then recombinant DNA technology made it possible to engineer bacteria
to produce Hgh. Still it cost about $200 to $300 per week to buy such
recombinant Hgh! Plus, you need frequent blood tests, costing $100 plus
each time to monitor the proper dosage. And you have to give yourself
shots twice a day, though these are more inconvenient than painful.
There is some debate as to whether Hgh shots might stimulate cancer.
Proponents counter that Hgh actually builds the immune system, therefore
likely helping to prevent cancer. The informed consensus opinion at
this time seems to be that those with cancer should not take Hgh as it might
stimulate cancer growth too!
Another concern is that Hgh shots, as with any hormone replacement
therapy regularly taken, tend to inhibit our own natural production. So, if you
stop, you could really "crash", having become dependent on an outside
source of Hgh.
In Part II, we will continue our discussion on human growth hormone.
We will present information on natural Hgh secretagogues, a safer and
much more affordable way to benefit from Hgh enhancements. And we will
discuss ways to optimize your Hgh levels with nutrition, exercise, rest
and stress reduction.
