Growth hormone is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth and cell reproduction. It is secreted by the pituitary gland and plays an essential role in regulating growth and development. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. They are involved in many biological processes, including cell signaling, metabolism, and gene expression.
Growth hormone peptides (GHPs) are synthetic analogs of growth hormone that mimic its structure and function. GHPs have been shown to increase muscle mass, strength, and exercise performance. They also have anti-aging effects, improve skin quality, and boost immunity. GHPs are commonly used as performance-enhancing drugs in bodybuilding and other sports.
The use of GHPs for non-medical purposes is controversial due to their potential side effects, which include joint pain, fluid retention, carpal tunnel syndrome, and high blood pressure. GHPs should only be used under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional.
