Health Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy in Women
There are supplemental hormones which are administered through hormone replacement therapy. In women, these can offer multiple benefits. But with many different treatment options of varying effects and processes, the choice of treatment must be specific to the needs of the individual. Hormone treatments vary and will depend on the diagnosis of a medical expert to determine what can best benefit a woman. One of those treatments is HGH therapy.
Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, is a hormone inherent in every person. It determines the way the human body recovers, how and how fast cells and tissues repair and regenerate. Both sexes experience a decline in HGH as they near their 30s or 40s, lowering cell regeneration and recovery rates. This is more visibly seen as the body’s aging process.
HGH therapy can be administered on both women and men. On each gender, the therapy produces both similar and differing effects and benefits. But how does this program benefit women in particular?
An increase in HGH levels has been shown to increase bone density, which is especially good for women who, in general, are more prone to osteoporosis than men are. Apart from maintaining a calcium-rich diet paired with exercise, women can protect their bones through supplementation of HGH.
To further increase calcium retention and keep the bones healthy, estrogen may also be applied through hormone replacement therapy. In women, the addition of estrogen to the program also offers a defense against the symptoms associated with the menopausal stage.
Women, young and old, generally have more fat and less muscle than men, and this only worsens as they age. Aging causes atrophy in muscles, organs and bones. It also slows down metabolism, which in turn makes it easier for women to accumulate fat. Excessive weight can make a woman highly prone to weight-related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
For middle-aged women who are already struggling to keep a healthy weight, HGH therapy is also known for its ability to retain healthy levels of muscle mass and also preventing weight gain due to a slower metabolism.
Finally, HGH therapy delays the signs of aging. Weaknesses of the body as well as the mind are slowed and lessened. So even in an advanced age, a person can remain in perfectly good health. The efficacy of the replacement therapy may differ from person to person and by dose, but whether in men or in women, it offers some general benefits.
These are just some of the effects of hormone replacement therapy in women. HRT can be tailored to a woman’s health needs through the expert diagnosis and administration of a medical professional.
