Growth Hormone and Body Fat

It is important to recognize how our muscle-fat ratio tends to change with age. Some 80% of a young adults weight is lean body mass-muscles, organs and bones. Only 20% is fat (adipose tissue). After the age of thirty muscles atrophy partly due to your genetic make up and partly due to lifestyle, such as poor diet and lack of exercise. Every decade thereafter an average of 5% of lean body mass is replaced by fatty tissue, so that by the time most of us reach 70 yrs, we have gone from an 80-20 lean-fat ratio to a ratio that is closer to 50-50.
Growth Hormone decreases 14% every decade as we age so that a 70 year old secretes only 20% of the Hgh (human growth hormone) secreted by a 20 year old.

Dr Danial Rudman published a land-mark study in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1990 when he showed that aging adults can reverse the physical signs of aging by as much as 20 years from injections of growth hormones. The most significant results were the drastic change in the ratio of muscle to fat. A study at the same institution after Dr. Rudmans death was published in 1996 and revealed the following, when 202 patients were given a low dose of growth hormone injection for several months:

- 88% reported improvement in Muscle Strength
- 81% reported improvement in Muscle Size
- 71% reported improvement in Body Fat
- 81% reported improvement in Exercise Tolerance
- 83% reported improvement in Exercise Endurance
- 71% reported improvement in Skin Texture
- 68% reported improvement in Skin Thickness
- 71% reported improvement in Skin Elasticity
- 51% reported improvement in Wrinkle Disappearance
- 38% reported improvement in New Hair Growth
- 55% reported improvement in Healing of Old Injuries
- 53% reported improvement in Back Flexibility
- 73% reported improvement to Common Illness
- 62% reported improvement in Duration of Penile Erection
- 57% reported improvement in Frequency of Nighttime Urination
- 57% reported improvement in Hot Flashes
- 84% reported improvement in Energy Level
- 62% reported improvement in Memory

Growth Hormone is safe but expensive. I like to replace growth hormone for one month four times a year and give amino acids secretagogues the other 8 months. The combination of certain amino-acids like (lysine, arginine, glutamine and ornithine) will spur the pituitary gland to release growth hormone especially when combined with the zone diet and a good exercise program. This protocol lets you take advantage of the benefits of growth hormone while reducing the cost and risk of any side effects.
