- Growth Hormone (GH) is a protein of 191 amino acids that is produced in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland (or hypophysis)
- It has the important function of directing the growth process, especially during adolescence
- During the hours of sleep, particularly during the deepest phase, the Hypothalamus regulates the increase in GH production, which is a positive hormone since it stimulates protein synthesis and limits the ability to store fat in adipose tissue.
