Genotropin and Weight Loss

Written by Author - Authors Medical experts of the National HRT Clinic - March 16, 2016

There are so many people struggling with obesity and fat retention in the US that it has become quite an epidemic. This is not the same thing as gaining a few extra pounds after a weekend binge. Women may be holding on to weight left over from pregnancy, members of both genders may have put on excess pounds as a result of stressful situations, sedentary jobs, bad lifestyle habits, or even as a consequence of an injury or illness. Genotropin and weight loss have been linked together due to the fact that human growth hormone plays a significant role in how the body metabolizes and burns food as fuel, rather than storing it away as unwanted fat.


The body has a number of essential chemical messengers – hormones – that stimulate a wide variety of daily functions, including how food that is consumed is processed and utilized. If any of these hormones are in a decreased state, the necessary stimulus to the metabolism does not occur, causing the body to transform the food into fat. Genotropin is biologically identical to the naturally occurring growth hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland. It increases the level of HGH in the body so that weight gain can stop, and fat loss can begin.

How Does Genotropin Help to Reduce Fat?

The way that Genotropin and fat loss go together is by increasing the amount of growth hormone in the bloodstream. This, in turn, helps to stimulate the way that protein, lipids, and carbohydrates are processed. Instead of a sluggish metabolism not utilizing these foods as readily available fuel, it transforms them into fat cells to be used at a later time – which, unfortunately never seems to come.

When Genotropin HGH is introduced into the body, it signals the metabolism to rev up and convert not only food taken by mouth into fuel, but it also starts the same conversion process with stored fat cells. While this process is going on, something else exciting is happening within the body that contributes to a change in overall physique:

Muscle Building!

HGH Genotropin helps to improve lean muscle tissue at the same time that it is stimulating fat loss. This process begins to transform the body into a well-toned rather than flabby physique. As lean muscle is gained, the body can burn calories at a higher rate. Energy levels are increased, and working out becomes much easier to accomplish.

How Much Weight Can I Lose with Genotropin?

Although each person’s body is different, using Genotropin for weight loss will result in some positive benefits. Now, please note that HGH therapy is not a diet, nor will a doctor prescribe Genotropin for the sole purpose of losing excess fat. Weight loss is a side benefit of a program that is designed to improve overall health and vitality when growth hormone levels are low.

The average person who is overweight will lose approximately 10% of excess fat during a six-month cycle of Genotropin HGH injections. A typical gain of the same amount of lean muscle mass tissue will also occur. This is where the tightening and toning benefits begin.

As we look closely at the process of using Genotropin, and weight loss occurring, we find that changes in diet and exercise are not needed for this to happen. That does not mean that we recommend people binge eating fried foods while spending all of their free time on the couch. The more effort that a person puts into making healthy lifestyle changes, the more weight loss he or she will experience.

Is Genotropin Safe to Use for Weight Loss?

One question that comes up on a regular basis is whether or not Genotropin is safe to use for weight loss. Human growth hormone therapy has long been shown to be safe for use by adults who have a verifiable GH deficiency. That is the only time when this medication should be prescribed. Once again, it is essential to reiterate that doctors do not order Genotropin for the sole purpose of weight reduction – there must be real reasons for this treatment.

When determining the Genotropin dosage, weight loss is not the focus of treatment. Restoring a crucial balance to the body’s hormone system is the goal. That is why doctors use blood analysis and physical examination results as a barometer for gauging the proper dosage to prescribe. Weight loss goes along with the process because of the role that growth hormone plays in metabolic functions.

When a hormone replacement specialist prescribes HGH therapy to combat a deficiency, it is safe to use as recommended. One of the best brands of HGH is Genotropin. Good weight loss is something that will occur as a result of providing the body with what it needs to perform at its best in all possible ways.
