GROWTH HORMONES (HGH)
In fact, growth hormone was created to treat GH deficiency, it is highly popular in sports, especially in bodybuilding. The popularity is easy to explain – growth hormone combines 3 benefits: good muscle gains, fat loss at the same time as gaining muscles, increase libido and few side effects.
Growth hormone, which stimulates growth, cell reproduction and the release of insulin-like growth factor (to boost protein synthesis), is an integral component in supporting fat burning and safeguarding against muscle losses. As with testosterone, GH production is to be encouraged in healthy trainees. The more, the better. While dieting, many of us lose muscle weight along with body fat; a natural consequence of aerobic training combined with intensive weight training and low fat/low calorie eating. A drop in muscle may then result in a lowered metabolic rate, and less fat burning. It is therefore essential that we maintain muscle while getting lean, one of the toughest training dilemmas the natural bodybuilder will ever face.
