Intake of growth hormone does not result in improved physical performanceInjecting growth hormone (GH) expecting improved physical performance is a complete waste of efforts, as per a new dissertation from the Sahlgrenska Academy at Göteborg University in Sweden. It was revealed that growth hormone does not result in building muscle mass or improving the level of physical performance.

GH does not bring the same dramatic benefits as other anabolic steroids but can result in severe side effects such as damage to the blood vessels and heart.

Christer Ehrnborg remarked that athletes injecting growth hormones experience immediate effect in the body and are of the view that it will improve physical performance. But, this is not the complete truth as there are no effects of increased muscle mass from the growth hormone as per the conducted experiments.
