What exactly is hgh human growth hormone? Yup!I do know that HGH stands for human growth hormone and I have always equated that with "growth hormone" per se. It seems like I was wrong. HGH actually helps a person gain vitality, resilience, energy, youthful looks and beauty. HGH is naturally produced by the pituitary gland but by age 30,the production falls back considerably thereby accelerating the aging process. The less HGH hormone a person has, the more that person prone to weight gain, acne, muscle loss, wrinkles and aging. Ok...so where can I get this fountain of youth?
