NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A United States Patent has been issued for Growth Factor™-9's growth hormone boosting compound. United States Patent Number 8,551,542 has been issued to protect Growth Factor-9's oral growth hormone boosting compound as "Methods and compositions for increasing growth hormones."

The background of the patent says, "The primary biological function of human growth hormone (hGH) includes stimulating growth, cell repair and regeneration. Once the primary growth period of adolescence concludes, the primary function of hGH in adulthood becomes that of cell regeneration and repair, helping to regenerate skin, bones, heart, lungs, liver and kidneys to their optimal, youthful cell levels… Some embodiments [of the Growth Factor-9 formula] include a method for increasing growth hormone (e.g., hGH) in a subject (e.g., a human subject) that comprises orally administering a nutritional supplement to a subject to improve one or more objective health metrics, including for example and without limitation: increasing lean body mass; reducing obesity, adipose tissue mass, and anxiety; supporting weight loss; decreasing appetite and atrophic processes in skeletal muscle, liver, kidney, spleen, skin, and bone; and improving at least one of energy, endurance, sleep, metabolism, heart rate, blood pressure, cardiovascular health, sympathetic nervous activity, thyroid response, glucose utilization, mental/cognitive function, reaction time, bone density, hair health and appearance, nail health and appearance, skin health and appearance, and libido."

"We are extremely excited about being granted this patent," says Chantelle Daines, spokesperson for Novex Biotech®, Growth Factor-9's distributor. "There are hundreds of products on the market that claim to increase growth hormone levels without injections. We're very proud to receive the distinction of having a United States Patent that protects our oral growth hormone boosting compound from imitators."

Growth Factor-9 makes it possible for people to increase their human growth hormone levels through an entirely different approach than hGH injections offer. "Rather than introducing synthetic hGH into the body via injections, Growth Factor-9 increases the body's own, endogenous levels of human growth hormone by promoting pituitary health, the gland that manufactures hGH," says Dr. Amy Heaton, PhD, Director of Scientific Affairs for SanMedica International.

In addition to allowing consumers to increase their hGH levels naturally, Growth Factor-9 offers another benefit. As the patent information points out, "Until recently, hGH was available only in expensive injectable forms, and benefits from the restoration of hGH levels available only to those with the ability to pay." But with Growth Factor-9, consumers can increase their hGH levels for a fraction of the cost of synthetic injections… about $100 a month rather than the $1000-$1500 per month they would pay for injections.
