Are Growth Hormone and Testosterone Testing in Major League Sports a Sham?

With New Technology Allowing for Enhanced Natural Production of Both hGH and Testosterone, Testing Procedures Have Likely Become Obsolete, says Novex Biotech®

NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While many sports organizations have agreed to conduct testing for "performance enhancing" drugs, some are calling this dedication to testing a sham. Why? Because new technology has made it possible for both professional athletes and men who are simply interested in improving their performance and physique to increase their hGH and testosterone levels naturally… without highly expensive, controversial injections or greasy gels.

Here are the facts: at a December 12, 2012 Congressional hearing regarding the NFL and hGH testing, it was made clear that increasing growth hormone levels naturally by nourishing the pituitary gland (the gland that produces hGH in the body) would not trigger a positive result on anti-doping tests.

Dr. Larry Bowers, Chief Science Officer for the United States Anti-Doping Agency who testified at the hearing, explained, "The body produces many forms of growth hormone in the pituitary gland," but synthetic, recombinant hGH (rhGH) injections involve only one form, called 22kD. rhGH tests work by flagging people who have abnormally high ratios of 22kdD… but science has already moved well past this. And the same holds true for increasing testosterone levels. A revolutionary new oral compound has been discovered that is actually capable of increasing serum testosterone levels by 42.1%... in just 12 days.

Because you can now increase your body's natural production of hGH and testosterone without synthetic injections or testosterone gels and creams — and therefore without getting caught — some are calling pro sport's dedication to testing a sham. And Novex Biotech®, one of the most aggressive, companies in the sports science industry, is helping to usher in an athletic performance revolution.

Novex has secured the rights to two amazing compounds: a proprietary, highly specialized, oral growth hormone booster called SeroVital®, and a clinically tested testosterone boosting compound called Testrothione™. Both are available in the sports science section of your local GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, and Lucky Vitamin under the trade names Growth Factor-9™ and TestroVax™.

How do they work? Growth Factor-9 (or GF9, as many are calling it) is a dietary supplement that promotes pituitary health to help maximize hGH production, which drops dramatically with age. This compound was first revealed at the prestigious Obesity Society's most recent Annual Scientific Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. There, a group of some of the most renowned researchers in the world revealed that this oral compound has been clinically shown to increase mean, endogenous, bioactive, serum (blood) growth hormone levels… by 682%.

TestroVax's key Testrothione compound was shown in a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to increase serum testosterone levels by 42.1%... in just 12 days. And what's more, subjects who took this compound enjoyed significantly increased testosterone levels as much as three days after they'd stopped taking it, which shows a lasting effect.

Many believe it's no coincidence that ever since the release of these undetectable hGH and testosterone boosters, professional sporting organizations like the NFL and Major League Baseball have finally begun getting serious about testing for synthetic hGH injections and testosterone gels on their players. After all, GF9 and TestroVax do NOT introduce synthetic forms of hGH and testosterone into the body. So what purpose will this testing serve now that growth hormone and testosterone levels can be increased in a natural, undetectable way? And — perhaps more importantly — why would any professional athlete risk his or her career by using synthetic forms?

"To put it bluntly, only the most 'old school' players will continue using synthetic injections and gels," says Gina Daines, spokesperson for Novex Biotech. "Those players who are keeping up on the latest in the sports science world will almost undoubtedly see the benefits of increasing their levels naturally."

But now a new controversy is arising: whether or not using "natural" substances to raise hGH and testosterone levels is still "cheating." "To call Growth Factor-9 or TestroVax 'cheat' pills is ridiculous," argues Ms. Daines. "Think of it this way… Before Gatorade® became widely available, the electrolyte-rich drink was used to give Florida State athletes an advantage, especially on hot and humid days. Were they cheating? Or simply taking advantage of something the other team neglected to emphasize?"

No matter which side of the controversy you're on, one thing is certain: Growth Factor-9 and TestroVax are selling like hotcakes. The products' exclusive distributors, GNC, Lucky Vitamin, and The Vitamin Shoppe (for GF9 only) are having trouble keeping them in stock. Still, some skeptics are saying they sound too good to be true. So, is there a catch? For TestroVax, some men find that raising their testosterone levels over 42% leads to more aggressive behavior and unexpected strength and musculature.

Does GF9 have a catch? Actually, it has three. First, as with hGH injections, Growth Factor-9 is not a "magic bullet" but one part of a total program — you still have to eat right and work out.

Second, unlike injections of synthetic growth hormone, the Growth Factor-9 pill needs to be taken on an empty stomach. That means you either have to take it first thing in the morning and then not eat anything for two hours, or take it at night, at least two hours after your last meal... before you go to bed. And last but not least, while Growth Factor-9 is far less expensive than prescription hGH injections, it's still not cheap… Growth Factor-9 will cost you about $100 a month.

But is it worth it? To most people, anything that may cut fat and build muscle while giving you plenty of energy and improving sex drive should be a no brainer. However, make no mistake about it, the "established" medical community (and, of course, they know everything) would say its benefits are largely anecdotal, with research that's preliminary. But there's no denying that something that has a chance of helping you get in the best shape of your life — without getting caught — is... at the very least... irresistible.

It should be noted that Growth Factor-9 is the only 100% SeroVital-hgh sports supplement currently on the market. GF9 and TestroVax are currently being sold exclusively at GNC, Lucky Vitamin, and The Vitamin Shoppe (for GF9 only).
