Fortunately, for anti-aging enthusiasts, there are a variety of
natural oral Hgh enhancers that are much less expensive.
Because they support, not replace, pituitary gland function,
they don't "shut down" your own natural production. These are
called "secretagogues" because they coax or support your own
glands to secrete their own hormones, not replace them.
Which Secretagogues Are Best?
As the oral Hgh enhancers (secretagogues) hit the market,
caveat emptor! (buyer beware!) Most marketers will quote study
results from Hgh injections and then claim them for their
Here are 4 important questions to ask:
Has the Hgh product been independently lab tested, proving
it raises IGF-1 by 50% or more on average? (IGF-1 stands for
insulin like growth factor and is the accepted way to measure
Hgh response to oral supplements and injections.) Were the
studies conducted by a M.D. with expert credential in anti-aging?
Has the Hgh anti-aging product been utilized by scores of
doctors for several years to insure safety and effectiveness?
Are there testimonials not only from lay persons, but from
M.D.'s from major universities with credentials in anti-aging
Does the Hgh enhancing product cost more than $2 per day?
My general opinion is to avoid legumes or bean based
secretagogues as they may increase estrogen. Oral recombinant
Hgh sprays and drops are very effective, but too expensive, and
too new to know about safety. Plus you don't support your own
production with oral recombinant Hgh, rather you are replacing
it. Generally, combinations of amino acids like glutamine,
arginine, orthinine ,lysine, flush free niacin and herbs are
best. Pick products that have been used safely for at least
several years, proven to increase IGF-1 levels by 50% or more,
have endorsements from well credentialed authorities, and cost
less that $60/month.
Do I Need To See A Doctor First?
My personal opinion is that anyone serious about anti-aging
should have a professional anti-aging health coach.
Unfortunately, medical anti-aging clinics with Hgh injections
cost about $20,000 per year, cash! Doctors like myself who try
to make available more modest longevity programs to fit to the
middle class budget are rare indeed. Generally however, the more
over 40 you look, feel, and perform, the more likely you could
probably benefit from high quality, proven safe and effective
Hgh secretagogues as described herein. But be careful. You
don't have too be much of an entrepreneur to figure out that
"youth in a bottle" is a marketer's dream. Buyer beware!
As you may recall from Part I, Hgh levels are affected by
stress, rest patterns, nutrition and exercise.
Stressful lifestyles tend to focus the body on producing stress
hormones like cortisol and ACTH . Too much stress hormone
actually breakdowns muscle tissue, inhibits repair, and
interferes with sleep. If a long, vital, and happy life is on
your busy agenda, then make fun, rest, play, and quiet times a
Hgh levels are strongly effected by our nutritional status. In
the infirm elderly Hgh levels have doubled from admittedly very
low levels by supplementing with 20 grams of protein from whey.
Correcting suboptimal zinc status in otherwise apparently
healthy subjects increased Hgh levels by 20%. As human growth
hormone's effect is to stimulate growth, it will maximize your
results if you supply yourself with the necessary protein and
mineral building blocks through a nutrient dense diet. A high
quality multi- vitamin/mineral, rich in anti-oxidants, is also
to your health's advantage.
Exercise stimulates Hgh by reducing stress and promoting
However, weight lifting and to a lesser extent running wind
sprints, directly enhances Hgh levels. Heavy weight lifting,
like dead lifts, squats, and bench presses are the best.
Performing 5 to 8 reps, 3 sets, at maximum effort is best.
Unless very experienced, be sure to get guidance from a trainer
at your gym or home.
