NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Controversy has always swirled around human growth hormone (hGH) therapy, especially in the world of professional sports. So it's no surprise that the recent push by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to have the NBA conduct research into the ability of synthetic hGH injections to help injured players recovery more quickly is causing a stir, especially since Cuban himself admitted to USA Today, "The product has such a huge (public) stigma that no one wants to be associated with it." What Cuban doesn't seem to realize, however, is that many people — including athletes — have found a way to increase their growth hormone levels naturally... without using controversial, synthetic injections.
They're accomplishing this through a revolutionary new oral hGH secretagogue that's been stealing the show at scientific conferences around the world. The compound was first introduced at the prestigious Obesity Society's Annual Scientific Meeting introduced by a group of some of the most renowned researchers in the world, who revealed that the formula was capable of increasing mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels... by 682%.
And just last week at one of the largest international scientific conferences in the world, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, scientists presented research on the hGH secretagogue's effects on VO2max (the established measure of endurance). Study results showed that after two weeks of daily supplementation with this patented hGH secretagogue, not only was subjects' VO2max 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. Amy Heaton, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer for the Sierra Research Group. "But the research on this 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."
Although the compound's effects on VO2max are highly compelling, what may be of even greater interest to athletes — especially those competing on a professional level — is that according to a recent House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the NFL and hGH testing (click here for more info), this oral hGH secretagogue raises growth hormone levels in the body without triggering 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 injections involve only one form, called 22kD. rhGH tests work by flagging people who have abnormally high ratios of 22kD.
"That's what makes this compound so different," says Dr. Heaton. "Rather than introducing synthetic rhGH into the body via injections, this compound increases the body's own, endogenous levels of human growth hormone by promoting pituitary health, the gland that manufactures hGH. This compound 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."
This "natural" way of raising hGH levels also has another benefit. Growth hormone secretion in the body follows a rhythmic pattern, with dramatic fluctuations in the amount produced throughout a 24-hour cycle. This pattern is dictated by a complex system of hormone signals, and introducing one large burst of synthetic growth hormone by administering an injection can interfere with this highly sensitive cycle. In fact, some experts fear synthetic recombinant hGH injections can actually shut down the body's natural production of hGH. That's why the discovery of an oral hGH secretagogue that actually addresses the source of the body's decline in growth hormone levels and works to correct it by nourishing the pituitary gland is so compelling. In essence, it's the better way to increase your hGH levels because it helps your body make growth hormone the way it's supposed to.
This hGH secretagogue has even been granted a full United States Patent. U.S. Patent number 8,551,542 protects the compound as "Methods and compositions for increasing growth hormones." This highly specialized, oral growth hormone boosting compound is called SeroVital®, and it's been exclusively licensed to Novex Biotech® for sale to the sports supplement market. Novex offers the compound under the trade name Growth Factor-9™, and it's currently available at sports nutrition centers nationwide.
Despite the research behind Growth Factor-9 and the patent that protects it, some skeptics are still saying it sounds too good to be true. So, is there a catch? Actually, there are 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 authentic, 100% SeroVital, hGH secretagogue formula sold in the sports supplement market that's backed by all the research AND United States patent 8,551,542. It's currently being sold at sports nutrition centers nationwide. You can also purchase it directly from the manufacturer at www.NovexBiotech.com or 1-800-583-7136.
