What Is Growth Hormone Therapy?

Human growth hormone (HGH) is a protein that is released by the pituitary gland located near the base of the brain. Its main purpose is to control the reproduction rate of cells to maintain a healthy and strong body. It can also help with children’s growth, and helps to maintain the healthy functioning of organs muscles, tissues, and bone.

At the Advanced Hormone Clinic of South Bay, we offer HGH therapy to replenish the HGH that is lost as men and women age for an improved quality of life. HGH therapy is done by injection, since supplements that are taken orally have been proven ineffective. This is because the supplements will be digested by the stomach before it is absorbed by the body.
