The Miracles of HGH
written by Dr. Love
The revolutionary anti-aging Human Growth Hormone
discovery that is changing the future of medicine
It was a shot heard around the world. On July 5, 1990, the prestigious
New England Journal of Medicine published a medical study on an agent
that sent shock waves throughout the world. This substance was
instantly hailed as a "Fountain of Youth." In that study, Dr. Daniel
Rudman and his colleagues at the Medical College of Wisconsin injected
21 elderly men with a nutrient known as human growth hormone [HGH] over
a 6-month period. At the end of 6 months, the men gained 9% more lean
body mass, lost 14% body fat, experienced thicker firmer skin, and the
bones of their spines increased in density. Miraculously, this nutrient
had turned these elderly men into their sleeker, stronger, younger
Since Dr. Rudmanís study, several American and
international medical studies have consistently shown an increase of
growth hormone can reverse aging. In fact, of all the anti-aging
substances that have been hyped over the last 10-20 years, only HGH has
consistently passed the discerning eye of the placebo-controlled,
double blind clinical trials.
It may come as a surprise, but aging can be arrested
and actually reversed! Aging appears to be due, in large part, to the
sharp decline of growth hormone in the body after adulthood. It is the
falling levels of growth hormone that slowly rob us of our youth.
All of the current medical research indicates
increasing growth hormone is the ultimate anti-aging therapy. It
affects and regenerates every cell in your body, including your skin,
bones, heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys. It revitalizes your immune
system, significantly lowers your risk factors for heart attack and
stroke, and prevents loss of bone density.
The list of benefits seems to grow with each new
study. Here are just a few:
higher energy level
enhanced sexual performance
regrowth of heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, and other organs that shrink
greater cardiac output
superior immune function
increased exercise performance
lowered blood pressure
reduced LDL and higher HDL cholesterol levels
tighter, thicker skin and wrinkle removal
increased memory retention
Before you think about HGH injections, you should
first try safe, nontoxic supplements that allow your body to release
its own natural HGH. Supplements, when taken to naturally enhance
production of HGH, especially when taken in powdered form, has been
shown to be highly effective, and far less expensive than the more
painful injectable HGH. Growth hormone injections remain one of the
most expensive drugs costing up to $18,000 a year.
A number of amino acids, the building blocks of
proteins, have been shown to increase your release of growth hormone.
Additionally, supplementation with amino acids is adequate in producing
increased levels of HGH in most people. With HGH releasers, you simply
put back into your body what nature has taken away. Letís take a look
at 6 proven nutrients that have shown a positive impact on HGH
production and can be delivered through a teaspoon of powder dissolved
in water or juice, taken prior to bedtime:
ARGININE: a number of clinical studies have shown
arginine when taken by mouth, dramatically increases the release of
HGH. It keeps working even into old age. Arginine also helps improve
exercise performance because it is one of the main ingredients that the
liver uses to make creatine, which is needed within your muscles and
nerve cells for high-intensity, short-duration exercises. So with
arginine you get more bang for the buck---higher growth levels and the
raw materials for your cellular batteries.
GLYCINE: a nonessential amino acid that increases the
release of HGH from your pituitary. It also increases the output of
your heart during exercise workouts. People with multiple sclerosis
have found glycine is useful in alleviating muscle spasms of the legs.
OKG [L-ornithine-alpha-ketoglutarate]: a precursor to
glutamine, OKG has dramatic effects stimulating release of HGH. In
France, it is used to rebuild the body tissue after surgery, trauma,
burns, and other body-wasting conditions. There is reason to believe
combining arginine and ornithine has synergistic effects and will raise
insulin as well as HGH levels. This unique combination helps to build
muscle. By taking them together at bedtime, you stop the body from
breaking down muscle tissue as it ordinarily would during the 7-8 hour
period you are sleeping.
GABA [gamma aminobutyric acid]: a neurotransmitter
that is involved in the regulation of the anterior pituitary gland,
which secretes growth hormone. It is one of the most potent stimulators
of HGH release from the pituitary gland. It also stimulates deep sleep
also known as slow-wave sleep.
CHROMIUM: Chromium is effective in increasing your
tissue's sensitivity to insulin needed in the daily control of blood
glucose levels. It also overcomes the lessened effectiveness of insulin
that occurs after age 35. Chromium binds your insulin to receptors on
the membranes of your cells, and insulin acts with HGH to build muscle
protein. Vigorous exercise training, modern food processing techniques
and excess dietary sugar increases the loss of chromium up to 300%.
Chromium also helps metabolize carbohydrates and fats, as well as
NIACIN: believed to play a role in the release of HGH,
especially in conjunction with exercise. Niacin actually reverses
atherosclerosis by lowering serum cholesterol by an average of 25%,
lowering triglycerides by more than 50%, and raising HDL cholesterol by
33%. Few people know that niacin also increases cognitive skills in
young and middle-aged people.
The story of HGH supplementation is still being
written. Rudman's groundbreaking study inspired the National Institute
on Aging to conduct 6 unprecedented double-blind clinical trials
focusing on the role HGH supplementation plays in aging. Worried about
safety of HGH supplementation? A recent Denmark study completed over 3
years found no side effects. In a 1995 review paper on the use of
growth hormone doctors also concluded, "There is no evidence suggesting
that growth hormone supplementation causes any unfavorable long-term
side effects." Researchers in the National Institute on Aging study of
growth hormone have been quoted as finding "a complete absence of side
The consequences of not taking control of your health
are far worse than those of aging alone. The aging of your body is not
a benign process occurring in a vacuum. It takes a daily toll on the
cells, ultimately resulting in the loss of mental acuity and physical
It is true that smart dietary modifications and
regular exercise can delay or prevent the aging process, but actual
age-reversal requires putting back what has been lost over the years.
If we are to live long and prosper, we need to avail ourselves of
substances that will make our later years as vital and meaningful as
our earlier ones.
Everyone can benefit from replenishing their growth
hormone levels. Itís never too late to start.
Welcome to the medicine of the future!
