WHY WE AGE Growing old is a fact of life, and it’s inevitable. Our bones become brittle, skin starts to wrinkle, muscles get weaker, and energy plummets. These are the typical signs of aging. But, why do we age? The average life expectancy in the US is only 77 years of age. Can we do better? If so, how much longer can we live?
Cell Division Naturally, cells divide only a certain amount of times in the body. The cell division process begins at the time of conception and is necessary for the development and growth of a life. As we grow, cells divide and multiply; however, as we continue to get older cell division slows down.
Telomeres At the University of Utah, Dr. Richard Cawthon and his colleagues discovered that shorter telomeres are correlated with shorter lives. Telomeres are stretches of DNA which protects our genetic information from being destroyed. It is; however, that when cells divide, these telomeres get shorter. Ultimately,when they get too short, cells can no longer divide. This shortening has been directly linked with not just aging and cancer, but a higher risk of death, as well.
Epigenetic Factors Many People have a common, pre-conceived understanding that only genetics play a key role in how long we live (i.e. “My father died of a heart attack at the age of 50, and so will I”). While to some degree this is true, there are other positive epigenetic factors that play an even bigger role. Epigenetic factors are essentially the overall lifestyle changes made that can disrupt your own genetic make-up. Perhaps, this is how we can extend not just our lives, but the quality of life as well.
WHAT EXACTLY IS HGH? Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a single-chain peptide hormone produced from the pituitary gland, the master gland in the body. This is the hormone that helps you grow throughout childhood, hence the word “growth”. Around the age of 20 HGH is at it’s peak, and then plummets around the age of 25. This is when the dreadful aging process begins, as this hormone slowly declines for the rest of your life. But don’t worry, growing isn’t the only thing HGH is good for. Many experts say that elevating growth hormone when you are older can bring back your levels to when you were in your 20’s. Most people experience these benefits in as little as two weeks. Some expected benefits include: • Better mood • Healthier hair, skin, & nails • Promotes hair growth • Increased joint mobility • Enhanced libido
WHAT CAN LOW GH LEVELS LEAD TO? • Decreased strength and stamina • Low energy • Decreased muscle mass • Weight gain, especially around the midsection • Feeling of depression, anxiety and sadness
• Fat loss (especially around the mid-section) • Greater muscle tone • Increase in strength • Improved memory • Increased bone density
• Thin and dry skin • Decrease in sexual function and interest • Reduction in bone density • Fatigue • Greater sensitivity to cold and heat
WHAT CAN CAUSE LOW GH LEVELS? • Aging adult • Lack of sleep • Severe head injury • Pituitary tumor • Infection

The molecular breakdown of HGH found in SOMADERM Gel is a synthetic USP human growth hormone (somatropin). SOMADERM Gel is a homeopathic form of growth hormone and is 100% safe and effective for men and women over the age of 18.
Is HGH Dangerous? To quickly answer this question, HGH is
not considered to be dangerous.
Amidst all the benefits of HGH, there are some stigmas that still exist, and the media has portrayed this hormone in a negative light. Where HGH replacement therapy can become dangerous lies within self administering the hormone without any supervision, with incorrect dosing, and improper guidance.
Is HGH Replacement Therapy A Substitute For Healthy Lifestyle? Although HGH has been looked at as the “miracle drug” or the “Fountain of Youth”, it should never be the replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Any medical professional will recommend a combination of a healthy diet and exercise, in order achieve the most results from HGH. Those who do not exercise, for example, will still achieve fat loss, but will do so at a much slower rate than someone who combined the hormone with consistent exercise.
