As it turns out, I would probably spend the money a lot like the guys who are billionaires.

Weight Loss and HGH (Effects of Growth Hormone on Body Composition)

This study was published in 1990 in the New England Journal of Medicine. The ad­ministration of human growth hormone for six months was accompanied by an 8.8 % increase in lean body mass, a 14.4 % decrease in adipose-tissue mass, and a 23.2% improvement in overall body composition. There was a 1.6% increase in average lumbar vertebral bone density, and skin was transformed into a much more youthful appearance with significantly less wrinkles and increased thickness of 7.1 percent.

Low testosterone linked to long-term risk of death in relatively healthy adult men

This study is another major report linking deficiency of testosterone in relatively healthy men with increased death from all causes, over time. “We have followed these men for an average of 18 years and our study strongly suggests that the association between testos­terone levels and death is not simply due to some acute illness,” said Gail Laughlin, Ph.D., assistant professor and study author.

Bioidentical Hormones: Why are they Still Controversial?

As women enter the menopausal years, they face a difficult decision. Their body’s natural production of estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones needed to maintain health and vigor rapidly decline.

While individual effects of menopause vary widely, most women suffer because their glands no longer produce the hormones required to regulate critical physiological processes. Depression, irritability and short-term memory lapses are common menopausal complaints, along with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia and weight gain. Continue reading
