HGH Peptide and IGF-1 Therapy

What is HGH and IGF-1 Therapy?

As you age, you may become aware of how unkind time can be to your body and appearance. Aging can bring forth many less than desirable and inevitable changes to your overall health, such as lower energy and fatigue, a slower metabolism, increased body fat, decreased muscle mass, a lower libido, aging skin and more. While all of these symptoms are merely a natural result of getting older, they can also be caused by hormone production declining within the body.

During childhood and adolescence, HGH is produced and secreted at the highest levels to help promote healthy growth and development. As you get older, however, it is normal for these levels to decline. It is estimated that by the time an individual reaches middle-age, both men and women produce about half of the HGH they produced at the age of 20 or during young adulthood.

Each hormone in your body plays a vital role in nearly every major bodily function. Aging can be paired with naturally declining hormone levels and be associated with unfavorable symptoms and health conditions. As a result, our anti-aging specialists utilize Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Peptide Therapy to help reverse and slow the onset of aging symptoms and restore any bodily deterioration that can accompany aging.



While many glands within your body work to produce different hormones, the pea-sized pituitary gland is often considered to be the “master control gland.” This is largely due to the pituitary gland’s role in controlling hormone production within your body and its role in producing HGH.

Your pituitary gland produces and releases HGH into your bloodstream while you are in the deep stages of sleep. HGH binds to receptors in the regions of the brain responsible for learning and memory. It also binds to fat cells to help them release their contents to be converted into energy. HGH also works to stimulate the liver to produce a powerful hormone known as insulin-like growth factor 1 or IGF-1. IGF-1 is responsible for promoting the growth of bone, cartilage and lean muscle mass in your body.



With so many bodily functions relying on HGH, this hormone is critical for your body’s maintenance and well-being. However, even minuscule changes brought on by aging and declining HGH levels can have adverse effects on how well your body functions and your overall quality of life. An HGH deficiency or declining levels in adults can contribute to the following unwanted symptoms:

  • Brittle skin and nails
  • Decreased lean muscle mass
  • Fatigue or low energy
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increased fat around the waist or midsection
  • Poor moods, anxiety or depression
  • Reduced cognitive function
  • Reduced libido
  • Weak bones
  • Reduced libido

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and are over the age of 40, HGH peptide therapy may be beneficial in helping to reverse signs of aging. By carefully analyzing your blood results, health history and personal goals, our physician-guided staff will help you determine if you are deficient in HGH and whether HGH peptide therapy can help you reach your personal goals.



In adults, supplementing HGH peptide therapy on a routine basis can aid in stimulating your pituitary gland to produce increased amounts of HGH naturally. By restoring your HGH levels to more optimal levels, patients will usually begin to experience improvements in as little as three to six months. While the results of HGH peptide therapy will vary from patient to patient, overall improvements from HGH therapy can increase with longer or more extended periods of use. Some of the results observed from regular HGH peptide therapy injections can include:

  • Better sleep quality
  • Boosted energy and motivation levels
  • Decreased body fat
  • Elimination of fatigue
  • Improved metabolism
  • Improved muscle tone and muscle mass
  • Improved workout performance
  • Increased endurance and strength
  • Increased sex drive or libido
  • More balanced and improved moods
  • Shorter recovery times post-workout
  • Stronger skin and nails

It is essential for patients who undergo HGH peptide therapy to incorporate the treatment into an overall healthy lifestyle for the best results. Getting plenty of sleep, eating a healthy and balanced diet and exercising regularly are crucial elements to a hormone deficiency treatment plan. At BodySymmetry MD we are passionate about comprehensive wellness and will work with you to design an effective growth hormone therapy plan to get you feeling like your best self.



IGF-1 is a hormone produced in the liver and is primarily responsible for promoting bone and muscle growth and strength. While IGF-1 plays an essential role in childhood and adolescent development, it continues to have constructive metabolic effects well into adulthood. Lower than optimal levels of IGF-1 can be an indicator of a sluggish pituitary gland, which may contribute to a host of problems such as:

  • Difficulty maintaining lean muscle mass
  • Diminished vitality
  • Excess body fat
  • Low energy or fatigue
  • Poor bone density
  • Poor sleep quality
  • Sagging skin, fine line and wrinkles
  • Slow Recovery after workout
  • Weakened immune system



While the results of IGF-1 therapy can vary from patient to patient, overall improvements from IGF-1 treatment can increase upon longer or more extended periods of use. Some of the results observed from regular IGF-1 therapy injections can include:

  • Enhanced immune system and cardiovascular function
  • Improved bone density
  • Improved pancreatic and liver function
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Increased skin density and collagen production
  • Reduced body fat


Optimal levels of HGH and IGF-1 are a sign of good health and vitality, but even a slight drop in hormone levels can have adverse effects on bodily functions and can age you faster.
