What is human growth hormone
Before we look at the potential for sport, let me say what that growth hormone is not.
Human growth hormone is produced in the brain, particularly the pituitary gland. When released, it stimulates the liver, which produce insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). This hormone then causes the growth and repair of bones and body tissues, including muscle, skin, organs, and so on.
Natural production of hGH was checked somatokrininem neurohormones, growth hormone-releasing peptides, somatostatin and a normally limited on the pulse during the day. Usually it is about twenty doses, of which the greatest comes shortly after the sleep onset.
HGH is most essential for children's growth and its level increases dramatically during adolescence, peaks around twenty years and slowly decreases in adulthood. Healthy pituitary hGH but the production never stops completely.
