Age is not kind to muscles. Not only does the body lose muscle mass with age, but fat comes in to take its place.
The human growth hormone plays an important role in building muscles. As you age however, growth hormone levels diminish. By the time you hit your fifties, you may be left with a third of the growth hormone levels you had at age of 35.
Peptide Therapy attempts to address age related muscle loss by stimulating the release of growth hormone which leads to increased lean muscle mass, fat loss, improved athletic performance, and more.

Human growth hormone is released into the body by the pituitary gland. Small amino acid chains called peptides encourage this release.
In order to understand Peptide Therapy for Muscle Growth, it’s important to understand the relationship between growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1.
When growth hormone leaves the pituitary gland, it travels around the body via the bloodstream, eventually reaching the liver.
