Caption: Human growth hormone (hGH) molecule, computer artwork. hGH is produced in the anterior pituitary gland of the brain. It binds to specific receptors on cells in the body to stimulate growth, especially in childhood. It is also involved in strengthening bone, increasing muscle mass, reducing glucose uptake by the liver and promoting the breakdown of body fat. hGH is frequently used as a nutritional supplement, but its efficacy and safety are debated.
