Tech Billionaires are Putting their Faith in Growth Hormone
Some of the top technology gurus are turning their sights and resources to radically extending the human life span which includes Growth Hormone.
What do the names Jeff Bezos, Peter Thiel, Larry Ellison and Larry Page all have in common? As CEOs for companies from Oracle to Amazon, besides being billionaire giants who have all been largely responsible for our current technology revolution, they have all been investing heavily into growth hormone research.
Why? Because these like-minded visionaries who have done so much to revolutionize how we interact with technology, now want to try to do the same with how long we live. They have all been pouring their money and powerful resources into drugs and therapies designed to slow the effects of aging and its related illnesses, most notably those that involve the use of Human Growth Hormone or HGH.
These entrepreneurs and venture capitalists are investing in start-ups and technologies that are testing all sorts of avenues to extend life, from drugs such as rapamycin, to therapies that target aging on a molecule level.
Until such techniques can evolve from the labs to approved drugs, these investors such as Peter Thiel, and Dan Scholnick of Trinity Ventures, are taking advantage of the many anti-aging benefits we have available to us right now such as growth hormone therapy.
There are so many positive anti-aging benefits of growth hormone that investors such as Thiel have referred to it as the “Fountain of Youth.”
What is Human Growth Hormone?
As you might gather from its name, Human Growth Hormone regulates and stimulates growth from childhood to teen, to adult. It also is critical throughout your life to help you to maintain muscle mass and bone strength. Growth hormone is made and secreted by the pituitary gland. Despite the need for its continued presence, your body produces less and less HGH over time.
Your levels of growth hormone drop most significantly as you reach middle age.
Think about it. Who is stronger, faster and more vital, a person in their 20s, or one in their 50s? Generally speaking, the younger person of course, and much of that has to do with their relative levels of HGH.
Once you are beyond your late teens to early twenties, your growth hormone level declines at a rate of about 2%-4% a year. Over time, that is a significant drop which can contribute to fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass and bone density, poor sleep, and sexual issues.
There have also been studies that have found a definitive link between intense exercise, and the increased secretion of HGH, that is why many medical professionals refer to HGH as the “fitness hormone.”
Benefits of Growth Hormone Therapy
HGH Therapy such as that being taken by Thiel and others, has been shown to:
- Rejuvenate cells throughout the body
- Aid in fat loss and muscle gain
- Help the body heal faster
- Boost energy to more youthful levels
- Improve the overall quality of life
In practice, HGH supplementation is often combined with other hormone stimulating factors such as Sermorelin. These combination therapies help encourage the production of not only HGH, but testosterone and other hormones, and often result in:
- Increased Energy & Stamina
- Improved Skin Texture & Elasticity
- Better Sleep and Reduced Sleep Disturbance
- Healthier Cardiovascular & Immune System
- Improved Bone Density & Strength
- Loss of Body Fat & Helping Prevent Weight Gain
- Increased Muscle Mass and Ability to Rebuild Lost Muscle
- Increase in Sex Drive, Sexual Potency & Frequency
- Improved Mental Function, Focus & Concentration
As with any kind of hormone therapy, growth hormone therapy is only available with a doctor’s prescription, and should only be received from experienced and certified medical professionals.
Is HGH the long sought after Fountain of Youth? That remains to be seen. However we do know that it is one of our most powerful weapons in our ever growing arsenal to combat the ravages of aging.
