Can HGH Help Burn Body Fat?

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a natural hormone that is produced by your pituitary gland. As you age, the level of HGH in your body declines. As HGH declines you can experience an increase in body fat, lack of energy, and decreased lean muscle mass, as well as other symptoms.

However, by increasing HGH production or with prescription HGH, you can burn unwanted body fat. HGH is converted to insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in your liver. IGF-1 competes with the same receptor sites as insulin on your cellA€™s surfaces. When it does this, less glucose in transported into your cells to burn as energy, so your body will burn fat instead.

Normally, a person’s body uses all of their glucose as energy before burning energy from their fat reserves. Human growth hormone (HGH) forces your body to obtain more energy from its fat reserves. Significant fat loss is the result.

Because human growth hormone (HGH) triggers your body to burn fat for energy, you will lose weight even during inactive periods. Energy is required for all aspects of living. HGH can even cause your body to burn fat while you are sleeping! Additionally, it allows you to eat a normal low-glycemic diet without excess weight gain. It is important that you eat a low-glycemic diet while taking HGH so that you donA€™t have too much excess glucose in your blood stream, as this can lead to insulin resistance and increase diabetes risk.

Human growth hormone (HGH) also causes heightened energy levels and metabolism. Naturally produced HGH creates these effects when youA€™re young. An increased metabolism means increased fat loss. In fact, HGH has been shown to cause weight loss even when you donA€™t exercise.

So how do you know if you are HGH deficient and if HGH hormonal therapy is right for you? If youA€™re in the West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, or Los Angeles area, schedule an evaluation with Dr. Mike Carragher.
