Turn Back The Clock

  Man is a creature of the age in which he lives; only a few are able to raise themselves above the ideas of the time, Are you one of them?  
     
 
 
We have learned so much the pass few weeks about the Growth Hormone and how it benefits us. Growth Hormone is natural to the body (it is secreted by the pituitary gland), it is not harmful to us. A person on Growth Hormone Therapy is not taking a material that is foreign to the body.

The breakthroughs in this therapy have amazed the medical world. Dr. Bruce N. Ames, a University of California researcher and geneticist commented:

"Ultimately we are going to be able to get people to live a lot longer than anyone thinks."

 
 
A great deal of ageing is due to the breakdown of proteins in the cell as well as the DNA and RNA that provide the blueprint for making protein. Skin, hair, bone and muscles are all made of proteins and as these proteins degrade, so do the things that are made of them. The skin wrinkles, hair falls out, muscles shrink, bones lose their density. The primary brain cell, the neurons, cannot regenerate; thus, starting in middle age, our mental power declines. The main ingredients to stimulate the production of Growth Hormone are special proteins, or known widely as the amino acids. Twenty amino acids form the building blocks of all proteins and are deeded for the body to make the proteins of enzymes, many hormones, muscle, bone, skin, organs etc. The followings are the benefits of amino acids:
 

Arginine

It is an essential amino acid, meaning that the body cannot create amino acid on its own but must get it from the foods we eat. Arginine causes the secretion of growth hormone. An number of clinical studies on arginine combined with lysine have shown fantastic increase of the growth hormone. Positive claims for arginine include increasing fat burning and building muscle tissue probably through the stimulation of growth hormone, increasing the weight and activity of the thymus gland, boosting immunity, fighting cancer, promoting healing of burns and other wounds, protecting the liver and detoxifying harmful substances and enhancing male fertility. Researchers believe that arginine help to restore sexual function in impotent men. It worked because it is a precursor of nitric oxide, which plays a key role in initiating and maintaining an erection.

Ornithine

It is a non-essential acid, meaning the body can synthesise it from other food sources. It shares many of the properties of arginine, but it has also been shown to regenerate the liver in animals.

Lysine

It is an essential amino acid that affects bone formation, height and genital function. Researches shown that a combination of lysine and arginine may increase thymic hormone secretion in order animals and humans, partially reversing the immunodeficiency of ageing.

Glutamine

It is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It is a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that the body may not be able to synthesise all it needs when it is under physical stress. Glutamine is the latest amino acid to generate excitement as a GH-releaser, thanks to a 1995 study by Thomas C. Welbourne of Louisiana State University College of Medicine. Glutamine is the amino acid that is most used by the body, particularly during times of stress. The immune system and the gut practically live on glutamine. If the body does not produce enough glutamine, muscle loss and immune dysfunction can occur. The gut atrophies, meaning nutrients all kinds cannot be absorbed as well as before.

So, let's walk together on the journey to longevity and a healthier lifestyle!
