Growth Hormone Therapy

Reverse the Effects of Aging with HGH Therapy

HGH, or human growth hormone, is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the body that decreases as you age. This can cause a host of symptoms such as excess abdominal fat, fatigue, depression and more.

As we age, less HGH is produced in the body, which will naturally cause levels to drop. However, certain conditions and diseases may also cause low HGH in the body. People who have had meningitis, a head injury, or radiation therapy are all at higher risk for developing an HGH deficiency as they age. This is because these conditions cause damage to the pituitary gland, which is where HGH is produced and regulated in the body.

The decline in growth hormone/IGF-1 is associated with decreased muscle and bone mass, fat gain – particularly around the midsection, reduced strength and energy for exercise. In the body, growth hormone is chiefly regulated by two hormones produced in the hypothalamus, growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) and somatostatin or growth hormone inhibiting hormone. (GHIH). A third hormone, ghrelin, produced in the stomach is an and binds to the growth hormone receptors. When your blood sugar is low, the optimally functioning hypothalamus will release GHRH and your pituitary will release growth hormone. Growth hormone acts on cells in the liver, muscles, bones, and cartilage causing the secretion of IGF’s primarily IGF-1. Interestingly, plasma levels of ghrelin increase when blood sugar is low working with GHRH to stimulate for a synergistic growth hormone release.

You don’t have to settle for these less than desirable outcomes! To counteract these problems that low HGH levels can cause, Potomac Rejuvenation Center can prescribe peptides that will help restore your body’s HGH levels naturally.

Aging is natural, but that does not mean you have to accepted the signs and symptoms as they come. There are natural ways to treat and reverse many of the signs, including sermorelin therapy.

Benefits of HGH Therapy

By optimizing growth hormone levels our patients can expect to see:

  • Fat loss
  • Increased in lean muscle size
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Improved recovery from workouts and injuries
  • Increased bone density
  • Improved cognitive function (short term memory, problem solving)

What is our HGH therapy?

Our HGH therapy is an effective treatment for children and adults with a growth hormone deficiency. We do not inject a growth hormone, but rather work by stimulating production of growth hormones that are naturally produced in your body in the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is stimulated by the injections to increase the body’s natural HGH production.

Potomac Rejuvenation Center’s HGH therapy enables you to feel more youthful and increases your physical well-being. Many people begin to look younger due to the additional firmness in their skin. This is because the skin gains the ability to hold additional water, which decreases fine lines and wrinkles. When an individual is young, their skin naturally holds more water. This therapy offers relief from many health issues associated with the aging process. Numerous individuals have reported feeling a lot younger once they began therapy.

Our growth hormone releasing peptides are eliminated by the body quickly, so therapy must be taken on a frequent basis to get the most out of Potomac Rejuvenation Center’s HGH therapy.

Key Benefits of HGH Therapy

When HGH levels are restored, bone density is increased by increasing the levels of bone-forming cells in the body. This can help reverse the effects of osteoporosis and osteomalacia, which can cause bone pain and fatigue.

If you have stubborn belly fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, low HGH levels may be to blame. HGH treatment will help you lose weight by stimulating fat-burning hormones to be released in the body, which will give your metabolism the boost it needs to help you lose weight.

Replenishing HGH levels in the body can also have a dramatic effect on your overall mood and mental health.

Our HGH Therapy Options

Our patients are able to restore growth hormone levels to optimal ranges safely and effectively through peptide therapy.

CJC1295 is an analog of growth hormone releasing hormone. (GHRH). CJC1295, much like endogenous GHRH discussed above stimulates the pituitary gland to release growth hormone. Growth hormone that will act on several body tissues (liver, muscle, bone, cartilage) and stimulate IGF-1 release.

Ipamorelin is a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) and like ghrelin binds to the growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R). Once ipamorelin binds to the receptor it stimulates the release of growth hormone from the pituitary.

CJC1295 and Ipamorelin both work with body to promote a natural release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland. The use of peptides supports healthy pituitary function and will not cause a dramatic drop off of growth hormone if discontinued.

Ibutamoren – MK-677 binds to growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R) which stimulates the secretion of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. Additionally it blunts the impact of the growth hormone INHIBITING hormone somatostatin in turn amplifying GHS-R.

BPC-157: The human body has a built in system for self-healing and injury repair. One of the important components of this system is called the Body Protection Compound (BPC-157). BPC-157 is a peptide made up of 15 amino acids and is produced by the body in the acidic environment of the stomach. The peptide has been known for its ability to heal, repair and regenerate. Studies suggest that BPC-157 is useful in the treatment of ulcers in the digestive tract as well as management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a group of inflammatory disorders of the digestive tract. BPC-157 also facilitates wound healing of various tissues, including skin, muscle, bone, ligament, and tendon.

This can be taken with testosterone therapy without any negative interactions. They are both addressing very different hormones. Growth hormone levels are peaked during puberty and tend to slowly decline after this period. Using products like MK-677 or other growth hormone peptides like ipamorelin or sermorelin w/GHRP2&6 can help to optimize your growth hormone levels.
