James Strole and Bernadeane at People Unlimited, continue ageless PE by welcoming a discussion on HGH and super longevity.
Dr. Steve Hruby, DC, of Kai-Zen Wellness in Scottsdale, Arizona spoke about Sermorelin Acetate, a genetically engineered bioidentical hormone which promotes production of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). This was part of People Unlimited’s continuing Ageless PE series, held on the evening of September 26th.
Dr. Hruby discussed how critical a good foundation of health is to super-longevity,emphasizing that 90-95% of our lifestyle choices should be foundational choices in the areas of exercise, diet, supplementation, sleep, stress management and environment. He reminded us that anti-aging is not natural. Nature defaults to decay and degeneration over time, so smart lifestyle choices are necessary to tip the balance and optimize our current epigenetic expression of health. Dr. Hruby sees the other 5-10% as using the latest and greatest enhancements and technologies to prevent and reverse degeneration.
There followed a discussion about Human Growth Hormone and some of its main effects in the body:
- Build-up and maintenance of structural tissue through the production of collagen, found in connective tissue, skin, bone, muscle and internal organs. The visual aging process shows a decrease in collagen.
- Maintains a strong heart (muscle)
- Metabolism of fat and energy production
- Improves function of all the other hormones, especially insulin.
HGH level is simple to measure with an inexpensive blood test, the IGF-1, and Dr. Hruby stated that the use of growth hormone has been found to be extremely safe, promoting improvement in all the above areas. A combination of studies (meta-study) shows that there are 88% positive beneficial benefits and no adverse effects, all good news to us at People Unlimited who are moving to build extreme health and reverse any aging or deterioration that we may experience. Typically, HGH levels usually deplete by 50% after age 70.
Dr. Hruby went on to discuss some ways to naturally boost the IGF-1 such as the use of vitamin D, melatonin, GABA, Glutamine, L-Arginine and L-Lysine. However, he favored Sermorelin over HGH Replacement, since replacement doesn’t stimulate the body’s own production of the hormone. Sermorelin stimulates regrowth and regeneration of the pituitary gland to secrete more growth hormone. An added benefit is that it also promotes slow wave sleep (deep sleep). Sermorelin injections can be prescribed by a doctor or it can be taken sublingually.
A member of People Unlimited, Dr. Hruby is a valuable resource to the community at large, but especially to all of us at People Unlimited in our ongoing mission to seek out, use and promote all beneficial age reversal technologies in the modern world.
