Nerd OUT! GH Review!


Ok all, I'm gonna have a nerd out moment. Most likely in a few days or a week I won't even remember I did this at all, as the pseudo-lycanthropic trance wears off and I come back to myself....

and Here. We. Go.

Review of GH regulation and pathways. Some really interesting figures (table 2, 3 for starters). An entire section is devoted to somatostatin and GH, and they cover a shit-ton of other regulatory molecules.


Here's an abstract on a review of GH and IGF-1 in myogenesis (muscle formation)


I can't find the damn full article because I don't have a subscription anymore >:O. If someone can link the whole thing it would rock.

Development of GH Secretagogues


He talks about the same four things that BBB has talked about in regards to GH action.

Chemistry of the GH and IGF-1 system in sports and exercise


GH in regards to physical impairments, functional limitations.


this has a good section on actions of GH at the beginning. Look at the contents.

Finally, our other "favorite", prolactin. Reviews functions, pathways.


...And I'm spent. Enjoy.


I love it when you talk dirty... :wink:


Thanks you for the tip :slight_smile:

lol. Glad I could help out guys.

X. Summary


I am going to have to allocate a vacation to digest this.
If your neuromuscular synapses are as good as your cranial ones you are gold, Mr Aragorn.
Thank you for sharing.


You are flirting - but that is ok..j/k

; )


They most definitely are. I will plan a vacation to England and you can confirm it :slight_smile: ...if you haven't run from the CCTV state just yet.


Are you flirting?

: D

I kid...unfortunately I am planted here for the next three years max. There is no amount of GH that will renew me when my environment is not conducive of freedom.

Captivity = aging.

The ageless are free-er beings. That is why I still behave like a carefree child on many a occasion. I make freedom my priority number one.

And here I am derailing the thread again with my free fluid thinking but it is still fundamentally on topic in a spiritual kind of way.

: )


Yes. Shamelessly.


Ok. Fearlessly.
