NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While human growth hormone (hGH) therapy has become a staple among the rich and famous thanks to its notoriety for purportedly being able to reduce wrinkles, tighten saggy skin, decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass, boost energy, rev up sex drive, and make people look and feel decades — not years, but DECADES — younger, there has been a marked lack of clinical studies exploring these benefits. That's why a recent study on an oral growth hormone booster's effects on endurance garnered so much attention among experts attending the prestigious Obesity Week Conference held recently in Atlanta, Georgia.
The study revolved around SeroVital®, an hGH secretagogue that's been causing quite a stir at scientific conferences around the world ever since a group of some of the most renowned researchers in the world revealed that it was capable of increasing mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels by 682%. This was headline news, because up until this point most felt the best way to increase hGH levels was through expensive prescription injections (costs can run as high as $1500 per month). In addition to their high cost, these synthetic hGH injections are extremely controversial, because some experts fear that introducing synthetic hGH into the body may upset the natural production of hGH.
"That's what makes SeroVital so different," says Dr. Amy Heaton, PhD, Director of Scientific Affairs for SanMedica International™, SeroVital's distributor. "Rather than introducing synthetic hGH into the body via injections, SeroVital increases the body's own, endogenous levels of human growth hormone by promoting pituitary health, the gland that manufactures hGH. SeroVital not only provides a more affordable way for people to raise their hGH levels, but does so in a clinically validated way that allows users to achieve this naturally and without the risks associated with injections."
And now SeroVital is making news again with the release of a study analyzing its effects on endurance. The results of this study showed that after two weeks of daily supplementation with this patented hGH secretagogue, not only was subjects' VO2max (the established measure of endurance) significantly increased, but numeric increases in both resting metabolic rate and estimated daily calorie expenditure were also seen.
"Increased measures of endurance are a well-established outcome of synthetic recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) injections in adults," explains Dr. Heaton. "But our research on the SeroVital compound is so exciting because it's the first study of its kind to show that an oral growth hormone secretagogue may be capable of producing an expected benefit the same as that of synthetic hGH injections. And while the present study was not sufficiently powered to detect a significant change in mean resting metabolic rate and estimated daily calorie expenditure, these parameters showed increased values over baseline following the treatment period, evidencing the potential of the supplement to impart long-term fat burning effects."
The promise this research holds — especially because it doesn't require the administration of controversial synthetic hGH injections — could lead to an increased understanding of the ability of youthful growth hormone levels to impact excess body weight and fat mass, which is quickly becoming a major global health hazard. Dr. Heaton adds, "Further research in this area may provide insight to potential effects on body composition and weight regulation by the amino acid based hGH secretagogue. A larger multi-center study is being planned."
