In the last few years, growth hormone secretagogues have become increasingly popular among bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts, and anti-aging experts. These drugs are used to stimulate the human body’s natural production of growth hormone (GH), which helps to increase muscle mass and lower fat stores.
Growth hormone secretagogues are synthetic versions of the natural human growth hormone (HGH) that our bodies produce. They attach themselves to receptors on cells and trigger the production of new proteins, which is why they’re also called “protein precursors.” This protein production can lead to increased muscle mass, increased bone density, improved sleep patterns, boosted energy levels, and decreased body fat percentage.
The most common growth hormone secretagogue is CJC-1295. This drug is considered a peptide, which means that it acts as a precursor for another substance (in this case, GH). It can be injected subcutaneously or intramuscularly, and the effects appear almost immediately.
CJC-1295 is a synthetic compound that was developed in the 1990s by scientists. It’s used primarily to increase muscle mass and decrease fat stores. The drug works by triggering your pituitary gland to produce more GH, which then increases levels of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor).
Benefits of Growth Hormone Secretagogues
Growth hormone secretagogues offer many benefits to those who use them. For example:
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Reduced body fat percentage and weight loss
- Increased bone density
- More restful and better sleep quality
- Enhanced memory and cognitive function
- Improved cardiovascular health (cardiovascular system)
- Improved hair, skin, and nails
For years only the Hollywood elite had access to different variations of growth hormones. Actors/actresses and the big wigs would go to extremely exclusive or expensive facilities owned by people like Beverly Hills anti-aging specialist, Dr. Uzzi Reiss. In an interview, Dr. Reiss explained that he has been taking growth hormones for many years due to the numerous benefits that they offer.
The list of Hollywood stars includes Sylvester Stallone, Nick Nolte, and Suzanne Somers. Of course, these are the only people to have openly talked about their therapy to the public. There has been wide speculation of peptide and hormone therapy use across all facets of the mega stars we see every day that somehow are maintaining a youthful appearance, physique, and lifestyle. Actors like Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt, Jamie Foxx, and Paul Rudd, all seem to be frozen in time while the rest of us seem to be going full speed ahead.
This is most likely a combination of hormone replacement therapy, peptide therapy (growth hormone & secretagogues), skin rejuvenation devices like Morpheus8 and Forma, injectable neurotoxins and dermal fillers, and having a private specialized anti aging doctor to precisely deliver the proper treatment to them.
At Fountain of You MD Dr. Arbuckle has been developing these very therapies for his patients. We believe that these therapies should be available to anyone seeking to better themselves and improve their quality of life to a level they did not think possible.
