Top HGH Supplements and Alternatives

Man’s quest for the fountain of youth dates back hundreds of years. The Spanish explorer, Juan Ponce de Leon, came to present-day Florida in search of this “Water of Life”. There was even an Indiana Jones movie The Last Crusade wherein the Holy Grail was the instrument or vessel by which it could transform water into a giver of “eternal life” or in effect, “eternal youth”. Such tales may be laughed at or even ridiculed. But secretly, many holds in their hearts they wish to be forever young.

Does the fountain of youth really exist, or is it just a lot of fictional nonsense? Scientists would say they have found the fountain of youth. It’s not in Florida or some hard to pronounce foreign land. It’s in our brain. To be more specific, it’s in our pituitary glands. Scientifically, it’s not referred to as “the fountain of youth”. It’s known as HGH or Human Growth Hormone.

HGH is a protein compound produced in the pituitary gland in our brain, believed to be directly responsible for the symptoms of aging. The younger you look and feel the higher your HGH level. The reverse applies. When science found this out, the race for the “fountain of youth” began.

The first problem researchers encountered was how to reproduce this compound. Early on, it could only be collected by extracting it from the pituitary glands of deceased patients. The natural HGH was then processed and injected into those who needed the compound. This was not only costly, but it was also labor-intensive, time-consuming and limited. Only medical professionals knew who should undergo this therapy, and at the time they limited the benefits. But this method, up to the present, is most effective on patients over 45 years old. They also discovered at the time: Very young children have an abundance of HGH in their bodies.

Another option became available: Homeopathic HGH. This method of HGH therapy is low-dose high frequency. This means you take in small doses of HGH frequently, about 1 to 3 times a day depending on the brand. Liquid Homeopathic HGH is sprayed and absorbed under the tongue. At present, it is good to take note that HGH works best on people between the age of 30 and 45.

Amino acid-based substances increase HGH secretion in the body. Studies show that taking 2 grams of L-glutamine in the morning and 10 to 30 grams of L-arginine before bedtime on an empty stomach is the most effective way to cause the secretion of HGH.

In order for HGH to be more effectively produced in the body with the help of amino acid substances, it is good to avoid these things:

  • Anti-cholinergic medicines or medicines that cause drowsiness and dehydration. Such are medicines such as antihistamines (Benadryl, Sominex, Nytol, Tylenol-PM, and Zyrtec).
  • Alcoholic drinks in moderate to heavy quantities suppress the natural release of HGH and blunt the HGH secretion effect of amino acid substances.
  • Protein and Carbohydrate intake with 3 hours before or 1 hour after will reduce effectively of HGH secretion induced by amino acids.
