HGH & Nandrolone
As we age, natural hormone production in our body’s begins to slowly decline. This can cause some not-so-desirable side effects that come with age including decreased muscle mass, fatigue, brain fog, and more. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and Nandrolone are AASs (Anabolic androgenic steroids). Despite common beliefs, are very beneficial for rebalancing hormones in the body. Most of the “bad press” that surrounds the use of AASs is based on the inappropriate, non-physician-directed use of black market AAS products. Nandrolone along with HGH treatment is safe and effective when used properly under supervision.
Hypogonadism, is the inadequate production of Testosterone. This is associated with dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes, among others. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) in hypogonadal men improves these risk factors. TRT leads to resolution of their hormonal imbalance and the related symptoms. Indeed, an increase in lean body mass and muscle mass with the systemic administration of nandrolone could improve body composition and augment testosterone’s effects when closely monitored by a physician. HGH and nandrolone are two therapies that are frequently useful for treatment of hypogonadism.
What is HGH?
HGH stimulates growth in youth and improves sleep, muscle mass, while reducing fat as we age. In addition, it also can help to improve mental clarity and focus. HGH plays a crucial role in development and maintenance, yet men in their 40’s produce about half the amount of men in their 20’s. Still, that small amount is critical for the maintenance of skeletal and muscular systems. Loss of HGH leads to muscle wasting, fatigue, low energy, loss of libido and general deconditioning.
What is Nandrolone?
Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid, which are a group of chemically related structures derived from the male sex hormone testosterone. It is developed primarily to combat muscle wasting medical conditions, but recently attention has shifted to its capabilities for hormone rebalancing therapies. It has been used as a viable treatment option for patients recovering from orthopedic surgeries such as joint replacement and repair surgeries.
How Does HGH Work?
Every night when you sleep, a kidney-bean-sized gland in your brain called the pituitary gland secretes HGH and various other important hormones. HGH is a polypeptide consisting of 191 amino acids. It act as a chemical messenger throughout the body, triggering the growth and destruction of bone, fat, and muscle cells, among other activities.
HGH then flows into your bloodstream and binds to specific cell-surface receptors found throughout your body. These receptors are in dense clusters in the brain. From here they travel to areas with various receptors and trigger growth throughout the body. HGH binds to fat cells, triggering a cascade of activity. This results in the breakdown of the fat cell to be useful for other processes that require fat as a catalyst. It also plays a role in fat loss through its ability to aid in insulin production, an anabolic hormone that facilitates the uptake of sugar in the blood and inhibits the breakdown of proteins.
Historically, nandrolone is associated with the stigma of doping or only for body builders. Nandrolone alleviates joint pain, improves rotator cuff health, increases muscle mass, with a primary anabolic effect. This means patients can increase muscle mass, without the hair loss side effects seen in testosterone alone. Nandrolone is always prescribed with testosterone in a 2:1 ratio to prevent erectile dysfunction.
Who Is a Candidate For HGH and Nandrolone Therapy?
- Patients who are planning to undergo an orthopedic surgery – including rotator cuff, knee replacements, shoulder repair, etc.
- Those who have suffered muscle atrophy as a result of inactivity or surgical recovery.
- Age-related hormonal imbalance.
- Patients who are struggling to lose weight or build muscle effectively.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT)
If you have experienced fatigue, decreased sex drive, inability to focus, irritability – then TRT/BHRT could be right for you. TRT has many benefits and adding nandrolone into the mix can help to improve the efficacy of the treatment. Nandrolone can help specifically solve muscle-building issues and other symptoms that are a result of Hypogonadism. If you want to combat the negative effects of low testosterone, reach out to your local hormone specialist to find out if Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is right for you.
