What is human growth hormone?

Growth hormone is a chemical substance produced by a gland in body and is needed for normal growth and development.

In addition to causing children to grow taller, growth hormone plays a number of other vital roles, including:

  • Ensuring strong, healthy bones
  • Regulating the body’s metabolism, specifically the balance between muscle and fat
  • Promoting general well-being and energy levels

In case the body is unable to produce the natural growth hormone, doctor may suggest the biosynthetic growth hormone therapy. For more specific information, please contact your health care provider.
