This hormone is produced in the pituitary gland and plays its most critical role during childhood and adolescence. As we age, HGH continues to maintain healthy tissues and organs, just at lower levels. These dropping levels of HGH can lead to decreased metabolism, energy, tissue repair, and brain function.
HGH does not act alone. In fact, it is controlled by GHRH, better known as the growth hormone-releasing hormone. When levels of GHRH are low, health care professionals may prescribe Sermorelin, a synthetic form of GHRH.
