How to Slow Down Losing HGH as We Age


Notable Quotes

“At least in today’s medical space—this is not a generalization—we really overlook human growth hormone levels. Everybody’s focused on testosterone and estrogen, which are important, I’m not discounting that at all. Sometimes, you’re stepping on dollars, you pick up dimes, and we’re prescribing testosterone and estrogen drugs left, right, and center, and we’re forgetting you have to have adequate growth hormone levels even experience those kinds of benefits. ”
