HGH Precursor Therapy in Springfield, MO

Aging is the main cause of many symptoms best described as bodily deterioration. As the body ages, metabolism slows, bone and muscle mass deteriorates and energy levels disappear.

Frequently memory and mental focus weaken as the body gets older. Many suffer from a decline in libido as they age, while others have difficulty sleeping soundly through the night.

How Can Hormone Replacement Therapy help with Aging?

There are plenty of solutions assumed to work to combat aging. Adding antioxidants to one’s diet is assumed to slow aging by inhibiting the harmful effects of free radicals. Evidence shows that a supervised calorie-restrictive diet or a diet with intermittent fasting can slow the effects of aging as well. Hormone replacement therapy is commonly used to slow the effects of aging as often symptoms of aging are a result of hormone imbalances.

What is HGH Precursor Therapy?

HGH Precursor Therapy is a program that is designed to encourage the production of HGH (Human Growth Hormone.) HGH is responsible for muscle growth and general youthfulness found earlier in life. Through the use of a tri-peptide precursor, HGH can prevent or reverse the aging process while stimulating muscle growth and fat loss.

What are the benefits of HGH therapy?

As we age, our production of the releasing factor declines, so the pituitary doesn’t release anywhere near the same amounts of human growth hormone. This can lead to hormone deficiency and its accompanying symptoms such as fatigue and insomnia. The goal of HGH precursor therapy is to stimulate the pituitary to release new amounts of growth hormone.

These are the benefits our patients have found with these treatments at Affirm:

  • Increased lean muscle mass due to growth of new muscle cells
  • Reduced body fat
  • Improved workouts
  • Faster recovery times
  • Increased energy, strength, stamina
  • Decreased joint and muscle pain
  • Better sleep
  • Increased libido
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Improved focus and mental clarity

How is HGH precursor therapy done?

These tripeptides are given by injection. We make these subcutaneous injections into areas of fatty tissue that is just below the skin. Anywhere you can pinch the skin and pull fatty tissue is appropriate. We often target the abdomen or thigh for this reason. The session takes just a few minutes. 

What is a tripeptide precursor?

A tripeptide is a peptide derived from three amino acids that are joined by two or sometimes three peptide bonds. Certain peptides are involved in stimulating the pituitary gland to release human growth hormone. This is necessary to create growth and development of our bodies when we are young. 

As we age, our production of the releasing factor declines, so the pituitary doesn’t release anywhere near the same amounts of human growth hormones and hormone deficiency can result. 

The tripeptide we use at Affirm stimulates the body to release growth hormone, just as in our younger years. These are HGH releasing agents, triggering your pituitary gland to produce your own natural HGH.

What is a good age for HGH precursor therapy?

Our body’s natural production of human growth hormone peaks at around age 20, and then starts its inexorable decline. That doesn’t mean you would need HGH precursor therapy to boost your natural production at, say 27. But when you start feeling the impacts of the decline this is the time you should look into our HGH precursor therapy at Affirm. There isn’t a set date or time; it depends upon how you feel. 

How long does HGH precursor therapy take to show results?

These injections don’t produce immediate results, as your body needs to begin to increase its natural production of HGH. Most patients report improved sleep and energy levels within a few weeks of starting treatment. The full slate of benefits, such as fat reduction and muscle mass increase will take from 3 to 6 months. Results vary with different patients.

Is HGH precursor therapy safe?

The tripeptides we use at Affirm for our HGH precursor therapy are well-tolerated and found to be a safe way to increase your body’s natural production of human growth hormone. All these treatments do is encourage the pituitary gland to produce new amounts of growth hormone. This is a natural process that declines with age. This treatment simply seeks to give it a boost as we get older.

What are the side effects associated with HGH therapy?

The most common side effect is usually mild soreness at the injection site. Otherwise, these are the possible side effects with adult use:

  • Headaches
  • Flushing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness
  • Hyperactivity
  • Sleepiness
  • Hives
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Changes in taste
  • Skin pallor
  • Tightness in the chest
