Hi “?”, thank you for the question.

The use of growth hormone in ‘normal healthy adults’ is controversial and its exact benefits and long term complications is not well understood. However, you are correct as there are a number of individuals using growth hormone to decrease ageing, enhance endurance and muscle growth, vitality, etc.

If you are considering using growth hormone my suggestion is to consult with an endocrinologist who can examine you and take the necessary blood tests to help monitor your levels and progress.
