Understanding the treatment options available through Elite HRT can give you a small idea of what you may expect when a personalized treatment plan is made for you.
Below is a closer look at some of the many types of treatment options that Elite HRT has to offer.
HGH is shorthand for Human Growth Hormone. As the name implies, HGH serves to promote growth in humans. A large portion of the general population thinks that HGH only plays a role in development. While HGH is certainly an important player in the maturation and development process, HGH also serves many maintenance functions in fully grown adults.
As people age, their levels of HGH can tend to drop. Starting in their 30’s, some people can begin to notice symptoms associated with their diminishing level of HGH. A decrease in libido, weight gain in the abdominal area, and fatigue are just a few of the symptoms that can result from low HGH levels. The main issue is that many of these symptoms are simply written off as a part of aging, or unavoidable side effects from different medications that tend to come with aging. In reality, there are options that you have to help restore HGH levels and get yourself back to feeling youthful and spry again.
The most conventional treatment for low HGH is HGH hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment that aims to restore hormone levels through the direct addition of the hormone.
For HGH specifically, hormone replacement therapy consists of a regular self-administered injection of the hormone. By directly supplementing the hormone, this method can quickly restore hormone levels to a more appropriate level without having to visit an in-person clinic for injection by a health professional.
With an HGH HRT treatment, you’ll likely experience increased energy levels, improved muscle composition, a faster metabolism, more restful sleep, and a general improvement in your quality of life. The benefits of HGH hormone replacement therapy are vast, providing results that normally need a combination of treatments to attain, and Elite HRT has the capacity and know-how to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.
Peptide therapy for HGH is another method of increasing HGH levels. The main difference is that peptide therapy does not involve the injection of HGH. Peptide therapy utilizes the power of short amino acid chains to promote the release of HGH levels within the body.
Peptide therapy works by increasing the select peptide concentrations within the body that send a message to the pituitary gland to secrete HGH. While this method may seem like a roundabout way of achieving the same end means, peptide therapy is becoming increasingly more promising as it can allow for a more natural administration of HGH and avoids the complete bypass of important glands within the body.
Some HGH promoting peptides include ipamorelin, CJC 1295, and sermorelin. These are a great option for those that are looking for a more natural approach to elevating their hormone levels, especially if they’d prefer to avoid a higher dose of direct hormone injections. Rather than utilizing synthetically derived hormones, peptides allow you the power to utilize your own hormone-producing tissues to elevate HGH levels.
Like HGH, these peptides are typically only available as an injectable. The main reason is that the short amino acid chains are easily broken down in the digestive tract. Because of this, injections are the best way to deliver the most peptides to the intended cells.
Testosterone is a key hormone in men. Typically, testosterone is thought of as the “macho” hormone, but in reality, it is just like any other hormone in that it is a chemical messenger that is important in the optimal functioning of the human body. For men, testosterone plays a direct role in sex drive, sexual maturation, potency, and fertility.
In addition to its role in the sex organs, testosterone plays an important role in the feeling and appearance of youthfulness in men. The ability to gain muscle mass, proper fat distribution in the body, and overall wellness are partially attributable to testosterone’s role within the body.
As a man in their prime young adult years, testosterone is often at its peak levels, and by the age of 30, some people can begin experiencing decreased testosterone levels. Low testosterone can significantly reduce your quality of life and can accelerate symptoms of aging.
An increasing waistline, loss of muscle mass, low energy levels, and decreased motivation can all be experienced with low testosterone levels.
While a decrease in testosterone is typical in an aging body, especially as a side effect of prescription medications common in older men, you don’t have to let it impact your quality of life.
Thanks to testosterone therapies offered by Elite HRT, you can keep your prime years going for longer. The key to aging gracefully is having a positive outlook and maintaining your health and wellness. Testosterone can assist with just that.
Testosterone HRT is a treatment that focuses on increasing testosterone through the direct supplementation of testosterone. When dealing with testosterone, it becomes a little more involved as direct testosterone supplementation can lead to a condition known as testicular atrophy.
Essentially, if testosterone is supplemented for long enough, the testis, which naturally produces testosterone, will begin to atrophy. This testicular atrophy can result in a further diminishing of natural testosterone levels.
Elite HRT is aware of the shortcomings of direct testosterone therapy and can utilize Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) in addition to testosterone. HCG is a hormone that stimulates the testicles to produce testosterone. Utilizing HCG during testosterone treatment ensures that the high risk of testicular atrophy otherwise is lessened and that your natural testosterone levels remain intact, even after treatment.
Another aspect of testosterone treatment is to reduce the conversion of testosterone into estrogen. Testosterone can naturally convert into estrogen in a process known as aromatization. While a natural process, it can leave men with decreased levels of testosterone, and increased levels of estrogen. This phenomenon can become even more pronounced when increasing testosterone through testosterone therapy. This hormonal imbalance can lead to the enlargement of breasts, accumulation of fat in the midsection, and a number of other negative health outcomes.
Estrogen blockers work to counter the process of aromatization. By blocking the conversion of testosterone into estrogen, you can increase the availability of free testosterone in the body while also limiting the possibility of developing estrogen-associated features.
Nutraceutical treatments include various vitamin and amino acid supplements. While many of these can come from foods that we eat, they may not be absorbed in the right way through the diet, so by offering these as injections the body may be more able to absorb the substance and use it more efficiently in the body.
B12, MIC injections, branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), L-carnitine, L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-glutathione, and lipotropic injections are all nutraceuticals that can help to boost vitamin and amino acid concentrations in the body.
Vitamin B12 is a very important vitamin that many people fall short on. B12 deficiency can have detrimental impacts on your overall well being and B12 injections offer a quick and easy way to ensure your body gets its daily dose of B12. B12 can help the body combat fatigue, improve mood, and allow for a better night’s sleep when taken at the appropriate levels.
Methionine, inositol, and choline are three natural substances that are mixed together to form a therapeutic MIC injection. Methionine is an amino acid, inositol is a vitamin-like substance, and choline is a vital nutrient.
When these three are combined together they create a lipotropic formula, meaning they help to break down fat cells and promote weight loss. It does this by working in the liver to stimulate metabolism. This can help to improve energy levels and break down fat stores in the body.
In summary, Elite HRT has a number of different treatment options approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help fight back against aging and promote overall wellness.
Through HGH, testosterone, and nutraceuticals, Elite HRT can tailor a treatment plan to help you with your specific needs.
