HGH Supplements for Bodybuilders

Jul 25, 2008
Human Growth Hormone is prescribed by injection and is prohibitively expensive for most Americans. The therapy is not covered by insurance and can easily cost over $1000 per month; who can afford that. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that HGH supplements have begun to hit the market. A few pills or a nasal spray are a lot cheaper than thousands of dollars a month for injections.

FDA guidelines state that any product containing less than 2 micrograms of HGH are not considered drugs and therefore do not need FDA approval. So that means any legal supplement of HGH contains less than 2 micrograms of HGH. Most research on HGH has been done based on dosages up to 49,000 micrograms. So you would need to take something like 25,000 doses to equal one injection. Clearly this is not a significant amount of HGH.

So, is it really possible to raise HGH levels through the use of legal HGH supplements? Not significantly, but we can also raise HGH levels by stimulating our pituitary gland to produce more natural HGH. This is a much more effective way to increase HGH and get the benefits it provides. These supplements are HGH enhancers and can be more effective at raising HGH levels in our bodies.

The thing is you need to find a supplement that causes the pituitary to secrete more HGH. Some researchers tell us that certain amino acids can be used to increase HGH production in the body. Specifically arginine, glutamine and lysine have been claimed to increase HGH production in humans. Since some of these cannot be taken in pill form your best bet is to mix the powders yourself and then add them to your usual post workout protein drink. Since HGH is released mostly when we sleep a good solution is to take the aminos prior to bedtime.

There are also a line of homeopathic supplements that are available. The goal of these supplements is to enhance your HGH production as well. By introducing HGH into your body the claim is that it also stimulates additional HGH production. While this does make some sense it has not been proven yet by research.

There's no doubt that increased HGH levels provide great anti-aging benefits, even turning back the clock to some extent. The question is how do we get sufficient amounts of HGH into our bodies. The supplements available today do some good in boosting normal HGH levels and they are safe. Take the time to research any HGH boosting product you are considering to make sure that it lives up to it's claims.
