Growth hormone is an anabolic hormone synthesized from the pituitary gland.

Many functions are observed, including maintaining a normal body structure and increasing metabolism.


Alternative names for the rescue hormone are: Somatotropin; GH; human growth hormone; HGH


What is Growth Hormone?


Growth hormone is released into the bloodstream from the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland also produces other hormones with different functions of the growth hormone.

One of its function in children is their growth and development and the healing of bones. In adults, it does not cause growth but helps maintain normal structure and metabolism. Activates metabolic functions and transforms fat into energy. Including it also affects blood sugar levels, with some increases.

How is growth hormone controlled?


The release of this hormone in the body is not continuous. Its release is in the form of "pulsating bursts" every 3 to 5 hours. This release is controlled by two other hormones produced by the hypothalamus (a part of the brain): pituitary-stimulating growth hormone releasing growth hormone, and somatostatin that inhibits this release. Growth hormone levels increase and regulate through the quality and levels of various conditions: sleep, stress, physical activity, and low blood glucose levels.

They are also growing at the time of puberty. Growth hormone levels decrease during pregnancy and if the brain feels high levels of growth hormone or insulin-like growth factors already in the blood. Increase in growth hormone synthesis is significant in strength training sessions. This raises the fat burning process.


The more burdensome the weight training, the more hormone will produce your body. The highest levels of GH do not measure during the training itself but during the recovery.

Basic rules to follow to synthesize growth hormone naturally:

Strength training with basic exercises at least 3 times a week

Sufficient but not excessive rest between the series

A sufficient amount of sleep - at least 8 hours

Proper diet including pure protein and fast protein in the post-workout period

Avoid drinking alcohol


What happens if there is a deficiency of GH in the body?


In the absence of this hormone in the body there is a slow development in children. Adults experience conditions such as obesity, decreased vital function, increased risk of heart disease, weak muscles and bones.

The reason for reduced GH levels may be different, such as genetic burden, lifestyle, brain injury, and so on. Obtaining in an artificial way is usually injected, once a day or several times a week. In the absence of a hormone, adult individuals often experience fatigue, unable to perform daily tasks, which in turn leads to low self-esteem and reduced standard of living.

What happens if there is excessive GH synthesis in the body?


Logically, excessive synthesis leads to too much growth. Different forms of gigantism are observed. In adults, excessive growth hormone for a long time leads to a condition known as acromegaly, where patients get swollen hands and feet. The facial features also change.

These patients also have organ widespread and serious functional disorders such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. More than 99% of cases are due to benign pituitary tumor-producing growth hormone.

Overproduction of GH is detected after glucose overload.
