is growth hormone?
growth hormone (HGH) is produced in the pituitary gland of humans,
and the hormone is secreted throughout a person's lifetime. It
promotes growth in children and plays an important role in adult
It was first isolated in 1956
and its structure was identified in 1972. Until the mid-1980's
the only source of HGH was from pituitary glands collected post
mortem. Today HGH is available in larger quantities through
the technique of genetic engineering and, consequently, a number
of conditions apart from the classical growth hormone insufficiency
can be treated.
Growth hormone insufficiency is
a condition caused by a deficiency of natural growth hormone.
Without treatment, hormone deficient males typically reach a
height of 130 cm at the age of 18, compared with a normal height
of 162 cm. If treatment with growth hormone is initiated at
an early stage, a final height close to normal can be obtained.
Turner's Syndrome is a genetic
defect associated with short stature. Turner's syndrome affects
girl's only. It is caused by a defect of one of the x chromosomes.
Chronic Renal Insufficiency growth
retardation is often seen as a clinical manifestation of progressive
chronic renal insufficiency in children. Since dialysis and
transplantation sustain the lives of more children with end-state
renal failure, short stature has become a prominent problem.
Growth hormone deficiency in adults
is either due to a pituitary surgery or onset of growth hormone
insufficiency during childhood. In adults secretion of growth
hormone regulates a number of metabolic processes.
these products contain growth hormone?
Our products are for many people more effective than even injected
growth hormone because these products can cause a sustained
increase in growth hormone levels. We want to help the body
to increase its own growth hormone production and release over
a long period, because HGH itself is very unstable and breaks
down in the body very quickly, no matter how it gets in the
big reason, though, why these products do not contain any human
growth hormone is that it is illegal to do so, and it is impossible
to get HGH into the human body with an oral delivery system.
Consider these facts:

a manufacturer claims to have a significant amount of HGH
in their product, they are either misleading you or they are
breaking the law.
HGH is dangerous, can be overdosed, and can have serious side
the math, and look at the amount of HGH in the products that
claim they have real HGH. One product claims it contains15,000
nanograms of HGH per bottle - this gives you less HGH in the
entire bottle than a normal 80 year old produces in one day.
is a big molecule. It simply will not pass through the membranes
in the mouth, stomach, or intestines. Some products claim
that they have a “polymer” that is able to pass, but a polymer
would be even larger than the original HGH, and cannot pass
through these membranes either.
is very unstable, that is, it is quickly broken down in the
mouth or in the stomach, and then absorbed into the body as
its simpler amino acid components. Even if a supplement did
have HGH in it, the HGH would go into your bloodstream as
simpler amino acids, just the same as if you had taken a protein
should take HGH boosters to increase their HGH and IGF-1 levels?
Klatz’s book, Grow Young with HGH, Dr. Vincent Giampapa
suggests that the optimum IGF-1 level is that of a healthy person
in their early thirties. “We bring them (IGF-1 levels) up to
a level of a thirty- to thirty-five-year-old. In general, the
overall concept … seems to be optimized” at that IGF-1 level.
Our overall health, and our immune system in particular, is at
a peak in our early thirties, according to Giampapa. This gives
a guideline for when to start taking these products boost growth
hormone levels, and describes the appropriate goals of such a
program. Of course, anyone considering such a program should
consult a physician.
benefits should I expect to see when I increase my level of HGH
1990, a human clinical study was published in the New England
Journal of Medicine that rocked the world of longevity research.
Elderly men, ages 61-80, were treated with synthetic human growth
hormone (HGH), and none altered their diet, exercise activity,
or lifestyle during the trial. All the subjects gained muscle,
lost body fat, increased their bone density, thickened their skin,
and expanded their livers and spleens close to 20%. The scientific
significance of that study was that restoring youthful levels
of HGH in the subjects effectively reversed their biological age
by 10-20 years!

of GH may reverse biological aging by:
Restoring muscle mass

Elevating mood and improving sleep

you remember these points, you’ll see great benefits. Always

optimal times to take these products are:
Below is an explanation of why each of the points above is so
the product right before bed, at least two hours
after eating, because large HGH pulses occur in the first
few hours of sleep, and these products assist the body in
releasing more HGH during these pulses. For most people,
this is the most important time to take the product.

body produces bursts of extra growth hormone. A good cardio
workout or a resistance (weight) workout can boost your hgh
the HGH boosters mid to late morning and mid to late afternoon

early in the morning (one hour before breakfast).
This is because your body produces more growth hormone when
insulin levels are low. Insulin levels typically reach their
low about two to three hours or more after meals. This helps
your body magnify the growth hormone pulses at these times.

Drinking lots of fluid before or after taking these products
dilutes down the solution and makes it less likely that the
boosters will get into your bloodstream.
on an empty stomach.
HGH surges typically occur when insulin levels are low. Insulin
levels typically peak within one hour after eating, then reach
a low level about two hours after eating. Also, effective
HGH boosters are very delicate and unstable, and quickly break
down among the digestive enzymes in the stomach. So, the
less food in the stomach, the more effectively the HGH boosters
in these products will pass into the bloodstream.
I do anything in addition to using the HGH boosters that will
help raise my HGH and IGF-1 levels?
but this takes discipline and work to accomplish. You may have
noticed that trim, active people tend to look and feel younger.
This is because vigorous exercise and proper eating habits tend
to raise HGH levels and keep them high. Research has found that
people following the steps below can effectively increase HGH
optimum body weight. Dr. Klatz writes in Grow
Young with HGH, “obesity is as great a factor
in the decrease of growth hormone as aging.” He explains
that “The more body fat you have, the lower the peaks of the
secretory bursts.” Therefore, to get your pituitary to secrete
more HGH, keep the weight to where it should be.
often, at moderate or high intensity. Klatz writes
“Aerobic exercise results in persistent long-term release
of growth hormone in the plasma for two hours or even longer
after you stop exercising.” He suggests including weight
training for optimum results, saying “The best exercise,
bar none for sending those GH levels surging is weight-resistance
training.” Dr. Klatz covers the topic of exercise in depth
in chapter 18 of Grow Young with HGH.
the right kinds of foods at the right times. Eat
plenty of protein and vegetables, and eat foods low in fat
and low on the glycemic index. Also, give at least four hours
between each meal or snack, and at least two hours between
your last meal and bedtime. This is because HGH production
surges in the early hours of sleep, and in the third and fourth
hours after your last meal or snack. So, if you eat too often
during the day or too close to bedtime, you may inadvertently
reduce or eliminate the main HGH surges. Dr. Klatz covers
the topic of diet and nutrition in detail in chapter 17 of
Grow Young with HGH.
plenty of sleep. HGH output surges when we are
in our deepest sleep. People who have restless sleep or who
don’t get enough sleep (for most adults, that is 7 to 8 hours
a night), are not going to get the most important surge of
growth hormone of the 24-hour cycle we call a day.
about oral sprays?
Most of the pre-2001 oral spray hgh formulations
simply were not effective and we strongly recommended against
their use. We still recommend powders and effervescent tablet
delivery systems as the first option for hgh boosters. These methods
allow a more concentrated amino stack to be delivered to the blood
stream with the least amount of dilution.
do have their place, however. In recent months the science of
formulating oral spays has improved to the point that effective
amino stacks can be suspended in liquid solutions without significant
degeneration of the ingredients.

between applications of a powder or tablet. We currently recommend
