Human Growth Hormone – Is it Safe?
It absolutely amazes me how many new dietary and workout supplements are on the market today.
Some promise to transform you into a superhuman freak of nature, while others promise to cure baldness and make you instantly desirable to any woman who walks past you.
Others promise to help you fill in that bald spot or even naturally give you a face lift. However, do any of these things actually work or are these products just feeding off of our desire to feel younger?
One particular segment of the workout supplement market that is experiencing huge popularity currently is the human growth hormone, or HGH, market.
The name sounds a bit ominous and instantly conjures up images of muscle-bound guys injecting this stuff into their veins to get “jacked” as if it was some new form of steroid.
Many of these HGH enhancer products promise to help you lose weight and feel younger by increasing energy levels. Sounds great doesn’t it?
But are these products and their associated claims just the latest scam to hit the market or do these supplements actually deliver results?
Human growth hormone, generally speaking, is a naturally occurring protein hormone in the human body which helps promote healthy cell production and metabolism. When we’re young, our veins are literally flowing with this stuff.
However, like everything else, when we get older, it starts to dry up but can be enhanced through a good diet and regular exercise. Eventually though, even strict diet and exercise regimens will not produce the results we want.
HGH promises to deliver the results we are all looking for; increased stamina, energy, weight loss, and increased muscle mass. After doing my homework, I realized that a growing segment of the health and exercise community is actually experiencing some amazing results with HGH supplements.
HGH is available on the market in the form of injections, oral sprays, and pill supplements known as HGH releasers. Injections, as the name would imply, involve directly injecting growth hormone into the bloodstream.
This method is known to be quite effective but is extremely expensive. Just one injection received each month can range upwards of $2000 and are not sold over the counter due to the potential risks involved.
Oral sprays are another alternative method of getting HGH into your body, but do they work? The prevailing consensus is that oral sprays are not terribly effective because they are not well-suited to pass through the membranes of the mouth or the intestines and will, therefore, probably never reach your bloodstream.
The third option, known as a HGH releaser, is typically sold in pill form. These pills are taken several times a day and facilitate your body’s increased production of HGH by stimulating the pituitary gland.
Although these pills are probably the most affordable, and successful, route to go about promoting increased HGH in your body, it is vital that you find a high quality product that uses natural, herbal ingredients.
