Today will be my last post on basic Hormones . I will post more in the future.

I thought I should touch on the elephant in the room AKA Growth Hormone.

As we age Growth Hormone levels fall. This results in:-

  • A decrease in muscle mass
  • An increase in fat
  • Vital organs start to shrink
  • Our body becomes more susceptible to disease
  • Our ability to metabolise sugar declines


  • Decreased % of body fat
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Increased bone mass
  • Maintained mental capacity
  • Maintained cardiac function
  • Improved skin tone, thickness and elasticity
  • Improved immune function
  • Improved exercise capacity
  • Raises good fats and lowers bad fats
  • Improves Sex drive and general get up and go attitude.

I am not going to enter into a debate about who should and shouldn’t supplement with Growth Hormone, although I am happy to hear your comments and thoughts.

I do not take Growth Hormone every day. I take Sermorelin which is a Growth Hormone releasing Hormone.

A word of warning: Please, please, please do not buy any of these on the internet. You have no idea what you are getting. They must be prescribed and supervised by a medically qualified Doctor.
