HGH effect on body functions
Growth hormone (somatropin, somatotropin, HGH) is a substance that is formed in the human body in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. It regulates many functions in the body, including growth. Growth hormone acts through growth factors (IGF-1), which are formed mainly in the liver.
Growth hormone has a multifaceted effect on the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Growth hormone is an anabolic hormone (that is, a hormone that stimulates tissue growth), which increases the transport of certain amino acids into cells, accelerates protein synthesis and affects the metabolism of fats and fluid balance in the body. Growth hormones enhance the effects of testosterone and anabolic steroids on muscle growth.
