Is it natural?
  • Our bodies naturally secrete growth hormone, but
    at around age 40 your pituitary gland slows down
    when secreting this particular hormone, resulting
    in more aging symptoms.
  • Some people would like to use HGH as an
    anti-aging agent.
  • Others use it to keep there muscles growing.

Stimulant
  • HGH is classified as a stimulant.
  • It provides the power and energy needed to build
    muscle.

Produced?
  • HGH was, up until around 1985, collected from
    dead bodies in Africa.
  • Thousands of dead brain cells for a few drops of
    HGH.
  • Used to help stunted growth for children.
  • Today Gene Splicing is used in labs allowing gene
    cloning of amino acids needed to produce HGH.

11
Overdose
  • By injecting HGH you are already overdosing your
    body with more than it needs of this hormone.
  • There are no details as to symptoms of an
    overdose, ironically those who overdose show a
    decrease in cancer cells in 6 years.

12
How to get HGH in you.
  • HGH is normally injected, its about 350,000
    nanograms of the hormone into your body. Though
    your body only needs 50,000. It is traditionally
    injected all at once but a new version of this
    hormone is going for a 2x a day method.

Psychological effects
  • HGH has proven to be a stress reliever and is
    shown to help recover memories and monitor
    emotions based on higher quality of sleep.

    HGH, doctor says there is low physical dependency
    or very moderate.

    drug.
  • Schedule III means it has a medical use in
    treatment in USA.
  • Low physical dependency and high psychological
    dependency.

    stunted growth, growing deficiencies in children
    and other problems related to development.

Interesting Facts
  • We found the usage of HGH into children to help
    them grow and help with bone density to be
    interesting because we only know it as a
    performance enhancer.
  • We were interested to learn about the penalties
    for intent to sell and for usage.

Case Study
  • Cardinals outfielder Rick Ankiel was linked to
    an investigation of steroid/HGH hunt in athletes.
  • Reported that he got a 12 month supply of HGH.
  • Article goes into more on steroids and HGH cases
    in athletes.
