HGH Benefits for Men

HGH Benefits for Men include increase muscle mass, a decrease in body fat, improved exercise recovery, an increase in sex drive, a higher level of exercise capacity, and more.

HGH Benefits for Men Overview

So, what are the HGH benefits for men? There are several. Especially as men age. Particularly those who have made poor lifestyle choices along the way.

Research has shown the following HGH benefits for men:

  • Anti-Aging Benefits
  • Increased lean muscle mass.
  • Heightened sex drive.
  • Reduced body fat.
  • Improvement in sleep.
  • Increased skin thickness.
  • Increased bone density.
  • Improved exercise recovery.
  • More stamina.
  • Improved immune function.



HGH Declines with Age and Lifestyle

Human growth hormone is very high when we are initially born. It then remains high from birth, through adolescents. Most men begin feeling the decline in HGH sometime between the ages of 25 and 40 years of age. 

In Costa Rica, at our anti-aging clinic, we use IGF-1 to detect HGH production in the body. IGF-1 provides a reliable way to see where levels are, and what is likely needed in the form of supplements.

Measuring HGH Levels in the Blood (IGF-1)

There are three types of tests to measure HGH deficiency in men. The test we use and is most common is IGF-1. Below is a table representing the optimal levels of IGF-1.

The HGH benefits for men are most often observed when IGF-1 levels are at 300 or above level. 

High Cost of HGH in the United States

The following table provides a quick overview of the cost of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the United States versus one of our international treatment centers. This is for the exact same medication, but the exact same manufacturer. As you can see in the table, the price difference is significant. 

Thousands of Medical Tourists from the United States and Canada have traveled to our international clinics since 2013 to get HGH treatment. In doing so, they save $5000-$10,000 annually for treatment.

USA HGH VS. Abroad EXAMS/LABS Average Monthly HGH costs
Norditropin Price in USA $570.00 initial exams $1,295.00 monthly (10MG Injection Pen)
Norditropin Price in Mexico $550.00 initial exams $550.00 monthly (Out of Stock)
Norditropin Price in Costa Rica $550.00 initial exams $550.00 monthly (10MG Injection Pen)

Dr. Life's Plan - Popular Method for Indirect Assay of HGH and IGF-1

Pituitary Description of Blood Test IGF-1 Range ng/mL
IGF-1 IGF-1 levels are directly related to growth hormone secretion and/or HGH therapy. Best levels for healthy adults is in the upper physiological range (290-315ng/ml). Some patients will require HGH dosage adjustments to achieve optimal levels of IGF-1. 200-320 ng/ml

The HGH / IGF-1 table above was reconstructed from the book Dr. Jeffry S. Life, M.D. Ph.D., The Life Plan: How Any Man Can Achieve Lasting Health, Great Sex, and a Stronger, Leaner Body, Edition May 2011, page 323. HGH Benefits for Men are achieved when levels are optimized at the 300+ level. 

The TRIIM Study looked at the anti-aging benefit in men. They found that men on average reversed their biological age after taking HGH for 6 months. 

The men on average experienced 1.5 years of age reversal from baseline after 1 year of treatment (a −2.5‐year overall age reduction compared to no treatment at all).

For more information, review the TRIIM Study.  That study was released in 2019. Additional studies are being conducted as well to further the initial evidence learned from the TRIIM Study. The treatment protocol in the TRIIM Study consisted of the following:

  • HGH Injections
  • Metformin
  • DHEA
  • Zinc
  • Vitamin D
