Growth hormone is an amazing substance, thanks to which children grow. And synthetic analogues of this hormone are actively used by athletes, as it helps them to quickly build up their muscles and get rid of fat deposits.


In the human body, all processes are clearly controlled by the nervous and hormonal system. Under the influence of hormones is a huge number of processes, including growth.

For human growth, the hormone somatotropin, which is produced in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, is responsible. Under the influence of growth hormone, the body forms an insulin-like growth factor, which stimulates the growth and development of all tissues and organs in the human body.

Somatropin (Human Growth Hormone)

In addition to the growth effect, the hormone somatotropin also has anabolic properties, promoting the metabolism of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and increasing the concentration of glucose in the blood.

After the scientists became aware of the anabolic and fat burning properties of somatotropin, the synthetic analogues of this hormone became widely used in sports.

At the same time, one must understand that the introduction of synthetic analogues of somatotropin into the body is fraught with the development of a number of side effects, which will be discussed below.


The hormone of somatotropin is not produced continuously, but undulating. During the day there are several peaks, when the concentration of this hormone in the blood increases significantly. It is noteworthy that the greatest amount of the hormone is produced at night, when a person sleeps or engages in physical activity. That is why it is not for nothing that they say that children grow up in a dream.

The age of a person also influences the activity of somatotropin. Thus, during the fetal development of the fetus, the child's body has the maximum concentration of the hormone necessary for the growth and development of the unborn child. After birth, the maximum concentration of the hormone falls on the period when children are very actively growing. This is the first year of the baby's life, as well as the adolescent period. After 20 years, the development of somatotropin gradually decreases, which affects the physical condition.
