Can HGH be used for bodybuilding?

HGH has been used for bodybuilding since the 80s when the purported benefits of HGH for physical performance were first published.

Following the initial research, there were new studies suggesting that the physical benefits of the therapy in healthy people may not be as significant as the scientists thought.

But nevertheless, the hormone has become one of the most commonly abused substances among athletes and bodybuilders and the illegal practice continues to this day.

Currently, HGH injections  are prescription medications and the FDA has approved the therapy for specific indications only.

Thus, HGH therapy is not recommended for healthy people and taking the medication without having a prescription is illegal.
