Growth hormone, or GH for short, is a protein that consists of 191 amino acids, produced in the anterior pituitary gland. One of its characteristic functions is that it contributes to body growth during adolescence. The release of GH, produced during sleep, is regulated by the hypothalamus. Since it stimulates protein synthesis and breaks down fat reserves, it should definitely be considered a hormone of “positive” effect. Year by year from around the age of 35–40, muscle mass gradually decreases, at the same time, however, the fat content of our body grows. This process can be attributed to the highly reduced GH levels. The most effective and safest way to increase the level of this hormone is, therefore, to enhance its production in the body.
