HGH hormone

Gut flora are essential to good health and without them we become sick. Proper balanced flora regulates the immune system.

1. Wikipedia "Growth hormone (GH) is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals. Growth hormone is a 191-amino acid, single-chain polypeptide that is synthesized, stored, and secreted by the somatotroph cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland. Somatotropin (STH) refers to the growth hormone 1 produced naturally in animals, whereas the term somatropin refers to growth hormone produced by recombinant DNA technology,[1] (laboratory methods, molecular cloning) and is abbreviated "HGH" in humans.Growth hormone is used as a prescription drug in medicine to treat children's growth disorders and adult growth hormone deficiency. In the United States, it is only available legally from pharmacies, by prescription from a doctor. In recent years in the United States, some doctors have started to prescribe growth hormone in GH-deficient older patients (but not on healthy people) to increase vitality. While legal, the efficacy and safety of this use for HGH has not been tested in a clinical trial. At this time, HGH is still considered a very complex hormone, and many of its functions are still unknown.[2]In its role as an anabolic agent, HGH has been abused by competitors in sports since the 1970s, and it has been banned by the IOC and NCAA. Traditional urine analysis could not detect doping with HGH, so the ban was unenforceable until the early 2000s when blood tests that could distinguish between natural and artificial HGH were starting to be developed. Blood tests conducted by WADA at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece targeted primarily HGH.[2] This use for the drug is not approved by the FDA.GH has been studied for use in raising livestock more efficiently in industrial agriculture and several efforts have been made to obtain governmental approval to use GH in livestock production. These uses have been controversial. In the United States, the only FDA-approved use of GH for livestock is the use of a cow-specific form of GH called bovine somatotropin for increasing milk production in dairy cows. Retailers are permitted to label containers of milk as produced with or without bovine somatotropin." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Growth_hormone

2. Pub Med "Fatty acid-induced damage in pancreatic ß-cells is assumed to play an important role in the development of type 2 diabetes. ..The hGH-mediated suppression of FAT/CD36 mRNA was associated with a decrease in palmitate uptake and fatty acid-induced basal hyper-secretion of insulin resulting in improved glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. This study suggests that hGH can protect ß-cells against fatty acid-induced damages." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21679697 This report states that HGH hormone can stimulate insulin production.
