WHAT IS HGH?
HGH stands for human growth hormone which is a large molecule consisting of 191 amino acids. It was discovered this far back as the 1920′s and began to take on interest in the scientific community in 1958 when a pioneering endocrinologist first injected HGH into a stunted child which produced no growth hormone. At first HGH was obtained by extracting it from the cadavers of thousands of brains from dead animals from the pituitary gland and only yielded a few drops. Soon there was not enough supply all the children that so desperately needed it. Three children developed mad cow disease and then later a total of seven children developed mad cow disease of the 5000. The FDA ordered it banned in 1991. The only solution was to produce this large molecule from scratch which would be a momentous task but was possible because of the emerging new science of gene splicing which meant they clonal proteins which make up the human body. By 1985 a company by the name of Genentech managed to accomplish this feat and did not have a problem classifying it as a drug because they created it one amino acid short of the 191 amino acids that would make a identical to HGH in the human body. A company by the name of Eli Lilly took advantage of this fact and manage to create the HGH molecule with the full 191 amino acids which meant that it was a hundred percent identical to HGH in the human body even though it was produced synthetically. Almost all the other hormones that are manufactured today and promoted by medical doctors are far from identical to the human body’s hormones. These hormones are often called synthetic hormones because they are so far from identical to the human body and it is this fact that allows them to get a patent and make large money on the particular drug hormone. Hormones that are identical to our human body can be produced today and are known as bio-identical hormones. The drug companies cannot get patent on bio identical hormones and therefore these hormones are very inexpensive and have been shown to be anti carcinogenic in various clinical trials as opposed to the synthetic hormones which have been shown to cause cancer. This is not the case with synthetically produced HGH which is 100 percent identical to the HGH of our human body and therefore very safe when administered properly or and very small amounts.
