HGH stands for Human Growth Hormone also referred to as Growth Hormone. You can take HGH in pills, powder, drops, or by injection.
What is HGH?
HGH is a hormone. While we are young and growing, HGH is produced by our pituitary gland. Adolescent secretion of HGH is about 700 μg/day, adult secretion of H GH is about 400 μg/day.
Does HGH help with weight loss?
Of the above effects of HGH, the one that would best relate to weight loss is that HGH promotes fat burning. In a small study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10352397 of 24 obese people, 22 women and 2 men, "GH treatment caused a 1.6-fold increase in the fraction of body weight lost as fat and a greater loss of visceral fat area than placebo treatment (35.3 vs. 28.5%, p < 0.05)."
The problem is that no other studies since, have been able to show that HGH has any weight loss benefit. In fact, the New England Journal of Medicine took a most unusual step regarding this study and that was to denounce the original study.
What this means is that the HGH claims that you read (by sites that want you to buy their products) are based on a study that has since been publicly declared wrong by the New England Journal of Medicine.
Nicholas Tritos, MD, who co-authored an analysis evaluating the effectiveness of HGH for weight loss in obese people says, "Our results showed small improvements in body composition, a small reduction in body fat and increase in muscle mass, but on balance, weight did not change," he says. "More notable changes are seen when an individual is deficient in growth hormone from true pituitary disease."
Other studies have concluded that HGH is NOT effective for losing weight.
In addition, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has warned against the use of HGH for obese patients.
HGH has no weight loss benefits.

The older you are the more profound the symptoms
According to science and research, HGH does NOT promote weight loss. Therefore, using HGH or products that stimulate your body production of HGH is a waste of your time and money. I give HGH for weight loss two thumbs down and recommend that you avoid it.
Thank you for reading, my friends, I wish you much success on your weight loss journey.

HGH to reverse aging or build muscle:
Synthetic HGH was developed and approved by the FDA in 1985. It has been approved to be used to treat shortness in stature in children and for other medical maladies such as:
HGH's effects on building muscle and anti-aging are yet unproven.
The HGH risks are too high considering the reward is probably a false promise.
