Human Growth Hormone and Dr. Oz
Human Growth Hormone Supplements
The human growth hormone (or HGH) is still something of a mystery. What we do know is that it is produced by the pituitary gland, and regulates growth in children and teens. It also regulates your body fluids, the growth of muscle and bone, as well as your sugar and fat metabolism. It also possibly regulates heart function.
Human growth hormone is traditionally used for serious medical problems, such as chronic kidney insufficiency or Turner’s syndrome, a condition that affects development in girls. It’s also used to help prevent muscle deterioration in HIV/AIDS sufferers.
Lately, the trend is that HGH supplements are being prescribed by doctors for other purposes. Supposedly, HGH can do much more than just help those that have pituitary tumors or short bowel syndrome. Many people believe that by putting more human growth hormone into your body, it can make you feel and look younger. Theoretically, it can give you a better sex drive, increase muscle mass and get rid of fat, improve the look of your skin and even give you more energy.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, who spent five years on “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, now has his own hour of television each weekday. Recently, he sent a reporter undercover to learn what doctors were saying to their patients about HGH.
It seemed that the doctors had no problem prescribing HGH supplements for non-medical reasons, despite the FDA’s declaration that prescribing drugs for their non-intended purpose is illegal. This is because the drugs have not been tested sufficiently for any purpose other than the one that it is designated for.
One of these doctors referred to HGH as “the fountain of youth.”
While synthetic HGH has its risks, such as increasing your likelihood of developing diabetes or potentially contributing to the growth of cancerous cells, there seems to be one way in which it’s possible to get the benefits in a natural way.
A product called Sero-Vital-hgh is a special blend of amino acids that, when introduced into the body, can stimulate your pituitary gland (a pea sized gland at the base of your brain) to produce its own human growth hormone. In a study done in 2012, both men and women involved in the study saw an increase of at least six times the previous amount in their system.
Supposedly, because Sero-Vital-hgh encourages your body to produce its own HGH, you do not become dependent on it as you might with regular injections of the synthetic injectable formulation. Dr Oz said to his television show audience “I have been searching for this from the day we started the show. I’ve been looking for ways of increasing HGH naturally…”
If you are considering HGH supplements as a way to improve your muscle mass, energy level and overall youthfulness, consider trying a homeopathic oral spray. Sero-Vital-hgh is an oral supplement that contains the amino acid blend that increases your body’s natural production. As always, please check with your doctor before you begin taking new supplements.
