Dr Oz: HGH Shots Pros vs Cons
In this segment, Dr Oz examined the risks of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Injections into your body. Some health professionals consider HGH The Fountain of Youth, while other health professionals believe the shot could actually cause more damage than good.
The Human Growth Hormone comes from the middle of the brain (the pituitary gland). Our bodies need the growth hormone to grow and maintain tissue. It peaks during the adolescent years, decreasess in our mid-twenties, and continues to decline as we age. Some people believe that boosting HGH levels will make you feel younger and live longer. However, others believe the boost interferes with our bodies natural functions and may even shorten life.
