jintropin-hghThe latest study on Human Growth Hormone (HGH) out of Standford University shows that it’s not possible to use HGH for performance enhancing reasons. It is more likely that long term HGH use will actually cause pains and hardships to the body – which would decrease athletic performance.

People who took human growth hormone, also called HGH, were more likely to develop joint pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Their fitness for an endurance bicycle race may have worsened and they had higher levels of fatigue-inducing lactate in their muscles, according to the study.

On top of the facts above, it’s clear that you can’t gain the muscle and strengh thought to be gained by baseball players in the steroid probes – the baseball players using anabolic steroids + HGH. It seems any muscle gains are all over the body and NOT in any specific parts, such as biceps or chest.

Healthy people from ages 13 to 45 who took human growth hormone gained about 4.6 pounds (2.1 kilograms), according to the study. That bulk didn’t translate to either stronger biceps or quadriceps in the two longest studies the researchers examined.

In fact, the latest study is showing that Human Growth Hormone may have actually hurt the career of baseball players who used it past the time they wanted to heal injuries. Thus, their talent was what made them great baseball stars, not HGH. Lesson learned, don’t use HGH, stick to good old anabolic steroids.

Sports stars linked to the use of human growth hormone, such as former New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens, may have risked their reputations for nothing, according to researchers who found the drug may not improve athletic performance.
