Human Growth Hormone: Abusing The Possibilities (part 2 of 2)
Old people are prone to abuse HGH products because of their desire to slow down the aging process. They are made to believe that increasing human growth hormone levels will result in the reversal of aging. They believe that the intake of HGH can increase muscle mass, lean muscle tissue, energy levels and can produce a younger looking skin. However, these claims have not been truly proven.
The manifestation of the HGH abuse in the elderly people is simple. Their vulnerability to believe in advertisements and their desire to stay young is making them too gullible to succumb to the deceptive nature of advertising. HGH products and supplements claim that they can give beneficial results to halt aging process but these are not all true.
Another group that is prone to abuse HGH products and supplements are the athletes. Majority of the athletes want to perform well in able to contribute to the success of their team. They also want to achieve fame. The use of steroids has been banned from the sports world because it was proven that it really increased performance. HGH products and supplements have also been banned but there was no proof that it actually increases performance. Athletes tend to use the HGH supplements because of its perceived effect to muscle mass and strength. These increases however do not necessarily equate to increased performance.
Other groups that actually believe on the powers of HGH and abuse it are the parents. Parents who want their children to perform well and to grow taller use these products without proper prescription.
HGH abuse is clearly manifesting itself in different scenarios. What is common is that the HGH supplements have not been approved to be used in all of the situations mentioned and the use of HGH is not monitored by a doctor. Human growth hormone products have only been approved for medical purposes. Most of all the advertisements promoting HGH supplements as anti-aging and performance enhancers are just scam to sell a product. Do not take HGH supplements without prescription. Consult your doctor first.
