It’s the human growth hormone known as HGH. You probably already know it’s the pituitary gland that releases the HGH into your bloodstream. Your body doesn’t release this hormone all the time. In a perfect machine, like your body, this hormone is released during the daytime hours.
The best part about it is that you can feel its benefits during the sleep-wake cycle, diet, and exercise. It responds well to these activities during your lifetime. Athletes go step further into “abusing” this growth hormone so that they can speed up the recovery period and skills.
However, this usually leads to a bigger risk because the HGH risks can outweigh the benefits.
Especially when it comes to women.
Professional female athletes are taking additional high dosage for women to improve their strength and performance.
They are taking them like drugs. Science supports this occurrence as you can find indications that the HGH improves the athletic abilities.
A study from 2003 in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism took the HGH intake in older women who were suffering from HGH deficiency.
The scientists were amazed by the results as the growth hormone gave great results strengthening the hands and legs in most of the subjects.
It increased the lean body mass while lowering the total body fat percentage.
According to an investigation from 2010 released in the Annals of Medicine, the subjects taking the hormone were sprinting faster on a stationary bike.
However, they gave lower results in jumping and aerobic capacity.
These effects of growth hormone disappeared a week after the end of the treatment. The women who were subject to this test didn’t get any side effects or something like that.
An investigation from 2004 released in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism was testing the hypothesis in younger and older women with HGH deficiency.
The first outcome of this study was about the cholesterol levels and the risk of cardiovascular health.
Results say that the HGH injections were able to reduce the total and bad cholesterol levels, were well tolerated without side effects, but it increased the ring size.
The benefits of HDH on women come with a price. The growth hormone increases the fluid retention or causes bloating.
According to a study from 2005, the subjects who were exposed to HDH injections experienced bigger fluid retention. Further studies revealed that the water retention was extracellular. This explains how the HGH reduces lean body mass.
The HGH injections could cause more severe damage. The growth hormone use could lead to diabetes. According to an investigation from 2005 published in the Metabolism journal, the subjects took growth hormone to correct their low HGH levels.
The whole procedure decreased insulin sensitivity and increased the glucose in most of the women.
These changes are worrying because can lead to diabetes. This means that everyone should be extremely cautious while taking these growth hormone injections.

Depression has its effects on physical health just like it has on the mental, so its treatment should target both in order to ensure overall health. The following 9 drinks and foods can greatly help the treatment of this disease: 1 – Blueberries
Blueberries have potent antioxidant properties which reduce oxidative stress, which is the main feature of this disease. They also support the growth of new cells, which is also a way to treat depression.
These fruits are rich n tryptophan, which is converted into 5-HTP by the brain. Afterward, 5-HTP is turned into positive neurotransmitters such as serotonin and melatonin. Moreover, bananas are also rich in potassium and magnesium, so make sure you have a couple of them daily.
Magnesium is a miraculous remedy in the treatment of migraines and depression, and a 100-gram bunch of almonds contains 268 mg of magnesium.
This has been confirmed by a 1968 study which showed that the adequate levels of magnesium reverse migraines, irritability, and depression.
You should have a handful of almonds daily, and it is estimated that women and men aged 19-30 need 310 mg and 400 mg of magnesium, respectively, while 31 and older need 420 mg, and women 320 mg.
4 – Avocados
Avocados are high in potassium, 485 mg per 100 grams, and this mineral has been shown to treat stress and depression. Hence, make sure you consume an avocado during snack time, and some more during the day, as adults should get 4,700 mg of potassium daily.
5 – Asparagus
Asparagus is high in folic acid, and B vitamins, which improve mental helps by supporting the body’s tryptophan conversion, which in turn is converted into serotonin.
6 – Chocolate
Dark chocolate, or specifically, the cocoa in it, boosts the levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain and lowers the levels of cortisol, the ‘stress’ neurotransmitter. Make sure you get 40 grams of dark chocolate daily.
7 – Spinach
Spinach contains more folic acid than all other dark leafy greens, and depressive people often lack it. Folic acid also boosts the levels of dopamine and serotonin in the brain. Spinach is rich in magnesium and improves the antidepressant effectiveness.
8 – Salmon
Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which soften cell membranes and helps serotonin to reach the brain. If you take anti-depressants, it will reduce the side-effects, and boost their effectiveness.
Yet, make sure you always consume farmed organic salmon, and a whole fish contains 1 gram of omega-3.
9 – Green Tea
Green tea has been used in the treatment of depression for millennia. It contains polyphenols which boost the brain’s supply of dopamine and increase insulin sensitivity, which ensures a steady supply of glucose – which serves as a brain fuel.
Studies have shown that the more green tea you drink, the more benefits you enjoy. Therefore, drink more and feel less depressed!
