Hypothalamus and anterior pituitary (AP) gland function as a storage, releasing unite and secretion for several hormones; growth hormones (GH), thyroid hormone, gonadotropins (luteinizing hormones and follicle stimulating hormone), and prolactin, adrenocorticotropin.
The use of glandular therapy, in which specific animal organ and gland tissues are ingested for concentrated nutrients present in them. The basic premise in glandular therapy is that glands of animals will have a healthy effect on the same glands in humans.
Pituitary Desiccated Gland Powder from animal is used to support a healthy hypothalamus and pituitary gland and to promote and increase the secretion and releasing of growth hormones and thyroid hormones and so on. Hypothalamus and pituitary gland are the main gland of the body. The anterior portion of the gland secretes hormones that control growth. Growth is a very complex process, and requires the coordinated action of several hormones. The major role of growth hormone and thyoid hormone in stimulating body growth is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete IGF-1. IGF-1 is the key player in bone and muscle growth. It stimulates both the differentiation and proliferation of myoblasts (muscle cells) and bone cells. It also promotes the absorption of calcium, prevents excretion of calcium, and stimulates amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in muscle and other tissues. Moreover, IGF-1 stimulates proliferation of chondrocytes (cartilage cells), resulting in bone growth. So Growth hormone and thyroid hormone secretes by body has a direct effect on bone growth by stimulating differentiation of chondrocytes.
