What does HGH mean?

Human growth hormone

HGH is a short form for human growth hormone. It’s a substance the body produces naturally, but it’s also used in medical treatments.

While some uses of HGH are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it’s most popular use is a bit more controversial. Athletes and fitness buffs often use it as a performance-enhancing drug (PED).

By using HGH, athletes aim to bulk up their muscles and improve their performance in their respective sports. However, this use of HGH is not FDA-approved and is considered illegal in most professional sports.
