The hormonal system in the body acts as a control system along with central nervous system and controls vital body functions.
Human growth hormone (HGH) is also released by the pituitary gland which is endocrine in action and is also termed as a master gland of the body.
The hormone is produced at the age of adolescence and declines as we grow up.
With the decline in the level of HGH, there arise so many problems which are also related to aging. With the advancement in science and medical sciences, hormone replacement therapy has been developed in which disorders due to hormonal deficiencies are treated.
For the conditions like Carpel tunnel syndrome, renal chronic insufficiency, growth retardation inside the uterus, low gestational age etc all can easily be treated with hormone replacement therapy. The individuals suffering from congenital growth disorders can be treated by HRT.
Growth hormone is being widely used for the treatment of congenital disorders, for increased muscular power and stamina in sportsmen and for children who are diagnosed with lower HGH levels in the body.
For the medical conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome battered-wife syndrome, fibromyalgia, obesity, we can safely use hormone replacement therapy. Besides, athletes can use it safely for boosting up stamina and a performance enhancer.
Anti-aging is one of the most wanted phenomena nowadays and the growth hormones can be highly effective in the treatment of aging and its symptoms on the body such as the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the skin, loss of hair, decreased muscle mass and low memory etc.
The decrease in the level of GH is related to age and adds to high visceral adipose tissues, lowering of lean body mass, bone mass decrease and lower exercising capacity along with the unwanted thinness of the skin. The deficiency of growth hormone also results in increased fat accumulation in the body and hence related to cardiovascular ailments.

As for sportsmen the lower body fat and increased muscle mass due to HGH levels can definitely be highly effective to boost up power.
