As the master hormone, controlling most of the functions in our body, the Gonadotropin (HGH) has been claimed to have several anti aging properties.
As a person ages, the hormonal levels in the body tend to fall. Clinical evidence and research studies suggest that HGH levels fall after the third decade of life at the rate of 14% per decade, so that, by the age of eighty years, a person produces only a fraction of the hormone produced during childhood. This information is based on a study conducted by Dr. Klatz of the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine, which indicated that the prime cause of aging was a fall in production of Growth Hormone. As per the study, by the age of 80 years, the production of HGH is barely enough to allow rebuilding of muscles and tissues.
Today in the United States alone, there are several thousands of individuals who use HGH products in different forms, for anti aging. As per an estimate, there are about 20,000 to 30,000 American adults taking HGH injections, annually, for anti aging, while almost a million adults use other products like HGH sprays or HGH supplements.
