Answering Your Questions About Human Growth Hormone

Human growth hormone is sometimes called the “youth” hormone, and is one of the most vital hormones produced by the body. This article answers some of the most common questions we’re asked about hGH.

Q: What Is hGH?

A: hGH stands for human growth hormone. It is a single-chain peptide hormone produced naturally in the body by the pituitary gland, which sits deep within the brain. We all produce it–human growth hormone is crucial for both men and women.

Q: What Does It Do?

A: When hGH is released into the bloodstream it travels throughout the body. It passes into your fat cells and can actually cause them to shrink. It enters your muscle cells, stimulating lean muscle growth. When it reaches the skin it maintains healthy blood flow, ramps up collagen production, and strengthens the underlying substructure of the skin’s critical architecture, which can help keep your skin firm, tight and smooth. For these reasons and more, hGH is often called the “youth” hormone.

Q: When Do Our Bodies Produce hGH?

A: Our bodies can produce human growth hormone at any time, but production doesn’t stay at constant levels throughout the day. Typically, it peaks while we sleep, with our highest levels being produced when we’re in the deepest stages of sleep (usually about an hour after we nod off).

Q: Why Is There Such a Focus on Increasing Our hGH Levels?

A: Although our bodies manufacture human growth hormone naturally, our levels begin to decline rapidly as we age. They peak in our 20s, and for the rest of our lives, our levels drop. Some experts believe this decline in production plays a role in many of the signs of aging we experience, like increased body fat and reduced energy. Because of this possible association, many people actively work to boost their hGH to more youthful levels.

Q: How Are Synthetic hGH Injections Used?

A: These are used for medically low human growth hormone levels. This is most often used for children who suffer from hGH deficiency, although some adults are also prescribed injections for medical use. While it’s true that some people use synthetic injections for “off-label” use (think celebrities and athletes), this practice is not only expensive, but is extremely controversial. Some experts fear that introducing the synthetic form into the body may upset the natural production of HGH.

Q: How Can I Boost My Levels?

A: As with everything related to our health, nutrition plays a big role. Eating too much sugar, especially right before bed, can interfere with the body’s ability to produce hGH. Sugar causes our insulin levels to spike, and insulin plays a role in suppressing hGH production. Keeping your insulin levels under control with nutritious food choices makes your body better able to produce hGH normally.

Q: What Else Affects My hGH Levels?

A: Having too much body fat can also decrease human growth hormone production, so working to keep your body fat at a healthy percentage might also help. And, of course, getting an adequate amount of rest every night gives your body a chance to produce those peak levels while you sleep. Stick to the same bedtime schedule as much as you can to help optimize the time your body spends in deep sleep. Exercise–especially high-intensity workouts–can also help boost your hGH levels.

Q: Can I Boost My hGH Levels Naturally? 

A: If you’re serious about increasing those naturally declining hGH levels, check out SeroVital. Rather than introducing a synthetic hormone into the body, SeroVital is a highly specialized, hormone-free blend of amino acids that works by nourishing the pituitary gland, allowing it to produce more youthful levels of hGH. It is backed by 4 clinical trials and shown to be a safe and effective way to significantly boost hGH. It can help bring your hGH levels closer to what you may have experienced in your 20s and 30s. *

Q: How Long Does It Take for SeroVital to Work?

A: Everybody is different, so results vary. Many of our customers notice improvements in a few weeks, but real change isn’t always immediate. Our customers call it a “lifestyle” product because consistency is key, and big changes build over time. Stay consistent and give it time to work. Many women who take it for 4-6 months say they’ll never go back to life without it.
