Is HGH and Steroids The Same Thing?
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Men's Health Issues

HGH is Not Steroids

Strong MusclesHuman Growth Hormone is not steroids. Read that again. HGH and anabolic steroids are not the same thing. Got it? Good, because there are so many misconceptions about both agents of human growth and development that most people simply lump them into the same category.

Heck, even the media doesn't know the difference. Most stories you read about performance enhancing drugs just hide the fact that the journalist who wrote the story doesn't have a clue about what steroids are, what HGH does, and that there's no grey area that separates the two in athletic competition. HGH is not steroids. Simple as that.

A Definition Please...

HGH is a synthetic version of growth hormone, a 191 amino acid protein-based peptide hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland and responsible for cell growth and regeneration. Growth hormone determines your height, bone density, skin condition and your body's ability to repair itself and look young.

Anabolic steroids are a drug that mimics the effects of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone. Such drugs, including Halotestin and Durabolin, increase muscle size and strengthen bones. They're legal only with a doctor's prescription to treat medical conditions related to lack of testosterone. When taken for reasons other than this purpose, they're illegal.

Having said this, both HGH and steroids have anabolic properties, meaning they can can 'build up' human tissue. And in some cases, they produce similar benefits. They also share similar side effects, and in the event you're looking for a safer alternative to HGH and steroids for a natural advantage in the gym, we'll review that too.

Where the Confusion Comes From

HGH and steroids are both legally available to treat medical conditions related to hormone deficiencies. Some endocrinologists prescribe HGH to treat growth hormone deficiency, in children and adults. When administered to a child, HGH can increase height, which makes it a popular treatment for children who demonstrate stunted growth.

HGH is also approved to treat cachexia – loss of body mass from AIDS.

Steroids are a legal way to treat deficiencies in testosterone. Such drugs can cause puberty to start early and can treat boys with a genetic disorder. As with HGH, they're legal only when prescribed by a doctor.

Both HGH and steroids are synthetic and have performance enhancing properties. They can both increase muscle volume and human performance, though steroids more dramatically than HGH.

Their anabolic properties make both HGH and steroids an attractive option for individuals who want to enhance the human condition. In that light, HGH is most often abused for cosmetic reasons, particularly to look younger. And steroids are often misused between 10-100 times their recommended dosage to build muscle mass.

Handle With Care

While both treatments are synthetic, HGH is a synthetic form of growth hormone. Somatropin is a well-known patented version of HGH.

Steroids, though designed to mimic testosterone, are simply drugs.

As you may have heard, both synthetic HGH and steroids come with a concerning list of side effects. Among other things, HGH when taken with injections can cause abnormal bone growth, nausea, joint stiffness, increased risk of diabetes, several forms of cancer and more.

But it's those steroids, and the many health risks associated with them, that have received the most attention in media circles. These include:

Men looking to make gains in the weight room should avoid needles completely, be it from HGH or steroids. Instead, they might consider another route.

A Safer Alternative: The HGH Releaser

An HGH releaser is a dietary supplement of herbals and amino acids designed to stimulate natural production of growth hormone.

Unlike synthetic HGH, an HGH releaser contains no growth hormone. Instead, it's formulated to encourage the pituitary gland to release growth hormone naturally, for similar benefits of more intrusive HGH injections, but with milder results and without the reported side effects.

The HGH releaser has received substantial media attention in recent years as an anti-aging supplement. And yet, with the influence of growth hormone on muscle development, a natural growth hormone supplement may have applications for all men looking to build muscle naturally, but without the dangers of synthetic HGH and those nasty steroids.

An HGH releaser may help with muscle growth and offer more energy. But to benefit the most from such a product, it's advisable to choose an HGH releaser with the right dosage for muscle growth and energy, yet within safe and acceptable levels.

To that end, and if this interests you, look for an HGH releaser formulated specifically for muscle growth. Ideally it should consist of an oral supplement and a spray with Alpha-GPC. The product should be taken twice a day, once in the morning and again at night, to maximize your circadian rhythm and natural, exercise-induced growth hormone release.

With this in mind, you might consider HyperGH 14x, which in addition to having the above prerequisites, comes with enteric coating, which maximizes absorption and delivers the most ingredients to the small intestine where they're processed and used for the greatest benefit.

Male Intimate Love Making Problems & Aging
Topic: Aging
Researchers have found that many of the performance problems for older males can be "attributed to illnesses related to aging". The medical conditions of the elderly that can inhibit performance ability include heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and various other things. In addition, older men may have performance difficulties because "as you age, the pelvic muscles that control orgasm become softer, and secretions from your testes and prostate diminish". Although impotence can occur at any age, it is much more common among older males than it is among younger males. In this regard, studies have shown that approximately 8 percent of men experience impotence at the age of fifty-five; this figure increases to 55 percent by the age of seventy-five, and 75 percent by the age of eighty.

Many men experience a decreased ability to get it up as they become older. In addition, some researchers have argued that middle-aged men go through a period of "male menopause." Although this experience is less intense than the experience of menopause in women, it nonetheless results in a decline in testosterone production, a decline in fertility, and a decrease in performance ability. It is also important to note that a decline in sexual desire and ability may be related to the ingrained expectations and attitudes of society. Because of the influence of societal beliefs, "men commonly have the false impression that it is inevitable to lose performance capacity with age".

Thus, there is evidence to support the view that older men often experience a decline in performance. However, it is incorrect to assume that this is a problem that confronts all men, or that it is a problem that cannot be dealt with.� In an extensive survey that involved more than 800 elderly men and women, Bernard Starr and Marcela Weiner found strong evidence "that not only are older people indeed interested in sex, they also think about it, desire it, and engage in it when they can". In regard to older men, specifically, although many researchers have found "progressive declines in male sexual interest, activity, and performance with age," others have found that the majority of men (as many as 80-90 percent) continue to retain sexual interest and engage in sexual activity in one form or another "well into the 70s or beyond". Impotence drugs may be helpful in enabling older men to remain sexual active.

Herbal products are available without a prescription, making them discreet if you wish to keep the problem a secret for a time to see if you can resolve it yourself. Look into VigRX, a world leader in herbal sexual improvement. Other products that work for similar sexual problems include Semenax, and Katana. Look into these if you have concern about privacy or desire to avoid the side effects that accompany the heavier pharmaceuticals.

More importantly, men need to "adapt their expectations" as they grow older, and to thereby maintain a healthy attitude toward the natural processes of aging and performance in old age.

Counteract The Symptoms Of Aging
Mood:  happy
Topic: Aging

Aging Is A Natural Process

aging couple
Aging is a natural process that everyone is subjected to. As a matter of fact, the aging process started kicking in the moment we were born. However, its unsightly effects are only felt when we start hitting middle age. Despite this, knowing what triggers the unwanted effects of aging and being aware of the right products can actually help you easily slow down or give the illusion that you have halted the aging process before its effects actually get on your nerves.

Many people are getting more and more afraid of facing the signs of aging. There is definitely no one in the world who would love seeing visible lines on their face or damaged skin complexions. Unfortunately, age sneaks up like a thief in the night. You might not like it nor appear to be combating it lightly but inevitably, you grow a year older after every three hundred sixty-five days.

As years add up to your age, they come with changes that take the youth in you. The function of the cells and organisms in your body shift, creating visible changes that sometimes come rapidly. The aging process may be different with each individual because there are many factors that contribute to it, but the bottom line is, everyone will surely get to it at one point of their lives or another.

Bodily Changes

Some of the bodily changes that you will experience include a significant difference in your weight and height. Weight increase is one of the major concerns that aging people wish to find a solution to. Reduced physical activity due to the weakness of the bones and muscles will definitely take its toll on your weight. Your height, on the other hand, naturally decreases as you get older. This is a result of a handful of factors like changes in posture and in the growth process of your spinal bones. Aside from these, your skin is also a fool proof sign that you are getting older. It becomes rough, loose, and dry. Women get more concerned about the skin changes than men because they tend to experience them faster. With the many hormonal changes women go through starting at the onset of puberty, pregnancy and menopause included, their skin rapidly becomes more vulnerable to age.

Mental Abilities

Your mental abilities may also become limiting as you grow older. Learning would be a lot more of hard work than, say, when you were on your twenties. Memory loss is also one of the more popular effects of aging. Older people are oftentimes forgetful because their brain process information slower than usual. Your mental fitness would also contribute to the many emotional combats that you will face. Anxiety and depression is very common among the older population because of the physical and mental limitations that they come across with.

Sexual Performance

Sexual performance is also greatly affected by aging. You may either lose the appetite or the ability to do it altogether.

Human Growth Hormones (HGH)

Some say maintaining a constant supply of the magical Human Growth Hormones (HGH) is like enjoying a youthful life forever. HGH production peaks in adolescence and slowly decreases after you reach your twenties. The decrease is more significant as you grow older, which explains the overall difference that you experience if you are beyond your fifties. Low levels of HGH in your body system is the main reason behind the visibility of the signs of aging.

Proper HGH Levels

Among the many things that can be benefited from the aid of proper HGH levels are healthy skin, a more functional immune system, decreased body fat, increased muscle mass, increased bone density, low cholesterol, and high energy levels among others. The older population may submit themselves to an HGH Replacement Therapy to continuously enjoy the limitless possibilities of being young and healthy.

There are of course, things that you can do to enjoy the youthfulness of being young without having to go through pricey medications and therapies.

Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

One is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, meaning, continuously participating in physical activities. Regular exercise is a good solution that will slow the aging process down without having to shell out bucks. A good exercise program that you follow regularly is the best answer to combat weight gain, muscle loss, bone density decline, or even any form of heart and cholesterol-related diseases for that matter.

Eating Healthy

Eating healthy is another trigger that could make you look and feel young longer. The right choices of foods and taking in the right amounts of them would create a great impact on your body's vitality. Do away with less fat, less salt, less sugar, and more greens, so your body could enjoy the most benefits from eating rather than suffering from the ugly consequences of not eating right.

Avoiding Harmful Vices

Avoiding harmful vices like smoking and alcohol drinking can do loads to you more than you can imagine. Smoking is detrimental to the whole body. It triggers premature death but will not let you go looking young as well. The major components of cigarettes have harmful effects that are especially reflected on your complexion. Dry and rough skin can be caused by the poor circulation and low oxygen levels in your blood, which are generated through puffing airs of smokes. Alcohol, on the other hand, depletes your body of the vitamins and minerals it needed to be functional. It also causes dehydration. Keeping a stress-free and happy life most of the time would surely make you feel better about a lot of things and in the process, would make you age gracefully. Stress affects your body and your well-being greatly so make sure that you manage all the aspects of your life well including your career and your personal and social relationships with people.

Admittedly, the fast-paced era held back people to keep a healthy, balanced, and stress-free life only realizing later on that they should have done so. But by that time, you may well be reaching old age and would find it difficult to repair the damages that your old habits created. The good news is, there is a tried and tested way to help counteract the symptoms of aging in a no sweat fashion. HGH supplements helps supply your body's needed HGH to maintain its youthful glow. It tackles all the ugly nightmares that most people worry about getting older.
