Where and How is Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Produced?

Human growth hormone (HGH), is one of the initiators and controllers of physical and psychological processes that happen in our body.

If you’ve listened closely in science and biology class, you’d remember a funny thing about the endocrine system. For those who forgot, the endocrine system is a part of the body (like the neurological system, or digestive system) that is in charge of excreting various hormonal compounds into the body to give other organs the chemicals and signaling they need to work well.

The endocrine system consist of:

  • hypothalamus.
  • pituitary.
  • thyroid.
  • parathyroids.
  • adrenals.
  • pineal.
  • testes or ovaries.

The primary endocrine gland is the pituitary, a small nut-like gland that is nested in the center of our brain, just below the hypothalamus. The role of this gland kind of fits well with the location it is placed – it is the “head” of the endocrine system.

The pituitary gland produces and excretes several different hormones that oversee, or better, initialize and control the production of hormones in other glands in our body. The hormones it produces can stimulate other organs and metabolic processes, and they can induce the production of other hormones which together work for the betterment of our organism.

Even though it is placed in our head, the pituitary gland is not exactly a part of our nervous system, although it’s not exactly true that it isn’t. The pituitary gland communicates with other parts of the body through the hormones it produces and it oversees the healthy functioning of these parts of the body. These include the digestive tract, blood vessels and heart, muscle function and growth, genital function, thyroid, and adrenal function, even liver.

Indirectly, the function and hormone production of the pituitary gland eventually even affects our brain, either by the hormones that it produces on its own or by the hormones other glands produce by its order. For example, the adrenal gland can produce adrenaline which will make us feisty, or estrogen and testosterone which will either make us more interested in nail polishing or blade honing.

While it is in charge of healthy brain and body development, it is controlled by the brain itself, namely the hypothalamus, which produces chemical triggers that start or stop certain hormone production.

The Role of HGH

As you could imagine from this much, the pituitary gland produces human growth hormone. With HGH the body can do a lot because this stuff affects so many body processes.

For example, it is a vital part and triggers body growth. HGH is THE hormone that helps children grow into a size of an adult. Deficiencies in HGH can lead to slower and lesser growth, and the excess of this hormone can lead to gigantism in adulthood. The growth plan is dictated by several processes and in the vast majority of cases, these processes seal the growth somewhere in adulthood. So, there is no way to grow larger after these processes have ended.

In adulthood the production of HGH doesn’t stop, it just gets weaker little by little, until old age kicks in and it gets really low. In the meantime, HGH is in charge of various metabolic processes that maintain our body’s normal function.

One of these processes is the healthy development and maintenance of bone tissue. Through HGH the bones stay strong and sturdy. The same goes for our muscles. HGH is in charge of the creation of various proteins that also go into our muscles, so it’s in charge of maintaining and increasing the lean mass of our muscular system.

Okay, HGH is building, but it’s doing way more than that. It is involved in lipid metabolism as well, as it breaks down lipids so that the body can use energy from them, and then it’s involved in safely removing the side products from the bloodstream, along with triglycerides.

If you ever wondered why we need to take in our electrolytes regularly, you should know that we’d need to take much more if there wasn’t for HGH – this hormone regulates the retention of some of the most precious compounds within the body, like phosphate, sodium, etc. Without it, we’d need Gatorade much more often.

How pituitary gland doses HGH

The peculiar thing about HGH is that it is not constantly produced, but it’s rather produced in bursts. These bursts come several times during the day and it depends on the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus produces a hormone that triggers the pituitary gland to produce HGH in specific parts of the day (when sleeping for example).

Another way to trigger HGH production is during stress and physical strain. The body is then asked for better sugar metabolism and body rebuilding, so HGH is produced and released.

Benefits of CJC – 1295 / Ipamorelin Over Time

Peptide research is proving that short chain amino acids like CJC-1295 combined with Ipamorelin are about to become the most effective anti-aging and weigh-loss treatments in the history of mankind.

These two peptides have already proven to be game changers for inflammatory conditions, energy deficiencies, mood disorders, and sleep issues. But, now research scientists and cutting edge medical doctors feel their anti-aging and weight loss benefits are so incredibly effective that they will soon become the #1 go-to weight loss and anti-aging treatments in the 2nd half of the 21st century.

Sometime before midnight as well as the early morning Growth hormone is released into the bloodstream from the anterior pituitary gland.

Our body’s natural growth hormone levels peak when we are about 20 years old and slowly decrease but stays close to to that level until around 30 years old at which time the HGH level begins to decrease at a rate of about 15% a year.

As the body ages, both men and women tend to gain weight, lose energy, and decrease muscle mass. This is due to our natural growth hormone levels that have decreased year over year as we age.

How long does it take for CJC-1295 / Ipamorelin to work?

Research shows CJC-1295/ Ipamorelin short term (3-6 months) has proven to have fat loss benefits and provide overall improvements in body composition. CJC-1295/Ipamorelin increases fat metabolism, so when aging and low HGH levels are present and this starts to become a factor in a person’s ability to lose weight, these peptides can create a more efficient and sometimes faster process of loosing adipose tissue.

Lose Up To A Pound A Day – The CHI Way By Just Eating An Alkaline Balanced Diet?

 

Believe it or not there is a good side to having a high percentage of body fat, as it plays a major role in extending lives because it provides the first line of defense from the acid wastes that go hand-in-hand with the Standard American Diet (SAD).

When we eat the SAD, we consume vast amounts of acid-based foods.  These acidic foods cause acidic waste, so our body’s first line of defense is to use the body’s optimal amount of fat cells to store the toxins. This defensive measure is helpful, although for most of us it’s no match for the amount of acidic foods we are accustomed to eating – so the body must make more fat cells so that the acidic waste will not be dumped in to our blood stream. 

Our health problems are compounded when our fat cells multiply beyond our body’s ability to handle them at natural healthy levels.  When  this happens we find ourselves not only dealing with unhealthy levels of fat cells, we find our bodies soon show signs of disease in the heart, lungs, liver, colon, kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder and other vital organs.

When I speak about high acidic foods which are part of the SAD, I’m primarily referring to all processed food along with dairy, meat, bread and any foods which are high in sugar. All of these foods are highly acidic and cause acid wastes to build up through out the body, including the fat cells.  

This brings me to why you can healthfully loose up to a pound a day stopping the toxic poisoning of your fat cells and balancing your pH!  

Here at Creative Health Institute, our students and guests are always amazed at the amount of fat that just seems to melt off their bodies on a daily basis. This quick weight loss is not water weight, as every participant is eating two and a half to three pounds of high alkaline raw living food per day, along with drinking a minimum of half their body weight in ounces of water.  The key to their success is the power of the alkaline foods and their ability to help the fat cells safely release their toxic acidic waste into the bloodstream, without adversely affecting the blood or bodies vital organs and systems.

There are a million-and-one weight loss programs and diets. It’s proven that 99% of the craze diets fail, not because the dieter is lazy or has no self-control, but because the weight loss program or diet is not based in eliminating acidic toxic waste and poisons from the first line of the body’s defenses, i.e., fat cells.

So, are you ready to experience the joy that is a natural expression of being able to free your fat cells of toxic acidic waste and poisons?  If so, then simply begin eating two and a half to three pounds of raw highly alkaline food per day, drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water and combine this simple eating regiment with just a ½ hour exercise daily. So, now that you know how it’s done, what’s keeping you from having the healthy toxin free body that you deserve?

If you need more information or need help with losing weight naturally, or want to know more about how you can have more natural energy, gain lean muscle, sleep better, wake more refreshed and be much less likely to get sick,  feel free to contact us at 866.426.1213.
