Understanding How HGH Helps Reverse Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is the accumulation of plaque in our arteries that begins early in adulthood and gradually gets worse over time. Atherosclerosis is even more of a concern if you have other risk factors such as diabetes, high-blood pressure, a family history of heart disease, obesity, or if you smoke. This progressive disease slowly and silently blocks, narrows, and hardens arteries, leading to heart attacks, strokes, and all forms of cardiovascular disease.

Clinical studies have shown that human growth hormone (HGH) treatment may be able to help reverse diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, and other forms of aging. Since atherosclerosis is thought of as a metabolic disease, reversing metabolic problems and other forms of aging may help to reverse the effects of atherosclerosis.

Research suggests that HGH deficiency is associated with increased risks of cardiovascular disease and that elevating bodily levels of HGH in the bloodstream may help boost cardiac function and improve the quality of the arteries.

Our liver acts as the primary organ for disposing of cholesterol in the body, and researchers have looked at human growth hormone’s potential for increasing the number of LDL (the bad cholesterol) receptors in liver cells which help remove LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. Since HGH aids in cleaning the arteries by improving liver function and removing harmful cholesterol, it also helps prevent atherosclerosis, reducing chances of a heart attack or stroke.

Human growth hormone is naturally produced in our bodies through the pituitary grand, and is then released into the bloodstream. When we are young, our pituitary gland functions at a higher level and produces plenty of this hormone. However, beginning sometime in our early 20s, the production of human growth hormone begins to steadily decline and by the age of 60, our body ends up producing very little HGH with subsequent pronounced and escalating signs of aging. Increased levels of HGH have been clinically proven in slowing the aging process and improve quality of life for people who are suffering from HGH deficiency.

Human growth hormone therapy is readily available with a prescription under the supervision of a physician. However, treatment can be quite painful and very expensive. For patients who undergo therapy, the process requires nearly 50 injections every month at a cost upwards of $2,000. For most people, this method is neither cost-effective nor convenient.

Many people have sought out natural alternatives to prescription human growth hormone that offer a safe, effective, and affordable option. A select few of these homeopathic formulas contain a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that help strengthen and empower the pituitary gland. The link could be made that strengthening and empowering the pituitary gland to function at more youthful levels would naturally produce greater levels of HGH in the body.

Additionally, some of these formulas contain ingredients that have been clinically proven to provide an amazing spectrum of benefits that mirror those often seen with traditional HGH treatment programs. This safe and effective natural alternative offers an affordable and convenient solution for those seeking these benefits.
