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 selves.

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 with age
greater cardiac output
superior immune function
increased exercise performance
lowered blood pressure
reduced LDL and higher HDL cholesterol levels
stronger bones
tighter, thicker skin and wrinkle removal
hair regrowth
sharper vision
increased memory retention
improved sleep

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 generate energy.

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 effects."

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 function.

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!
