    Howdy, My friend is getting this prescribed to him. He's lost a ton of weight. It has all kinds of perks. ANyone heard of it or tried it?

    It's on amazon, NOT an HGH, just boosts your own production.

    There are only two things that directly increase levels of HGH (and one of its primary mediator molecules, IGF1):

    1) injecting real HGH (e.g. Serostim, Omnitrope, et al)
    2) injecting growth hormone releasing hormone, aka GHRH (e.g. Egrifta)

    Both medications have very specific indications from the FDA (usually HIV-related wasting or excess visceral fat) and are exorbitantly expensive. They are not benign drugs and should be used only under the supervision of a clinician skilled in monitoring their effects. People buy them on the black market but you never know what you'll get there.

    Everything else is a waste of moolah.

    These over the counter HGH products are largely bunk. The ingredients for this one:
    GABA
    L-Arginine
    L-Dopa
    L-Glutamine
    L-Isoleucine
    L-Lysine
    L-Leucine
    L-Tyrosine
    L-Ornithine
    L-Valine

    These are all common amino acids. A supplement like this should cost about $15, not $75 (on salefor 50% off!) as this one is sold for. This in itself should tell you it's a scam.

    HGH is released in spurts during specific times of the day and night. If you design a study on a supplement to 'prove' that it releases HGH, you could easily show that HGH is being released by doing blood draws during natural HGH spurts and claim that the elevated HGH is caused by your supplement. When in fact, it is just the bodies natural HGH spurt that is being measured. This is why there is so much bunk about HGH supplements out there.

    Wishful thinking good sir, simply wishful thinking.

    As other individuals have said, there is only one way to increase HGH. To either inject it directly, or to inject a promoter hormone. Both of which are expensive, hard to regulate (i.e. easy to overdue or waste), and are short lived. Unfortunately, no effective small molecule agonists for HGH have been developed. I know not if they are being developed (doubt they are, but it's possible).

    Sadly, there are no shortcuts for this. Take it from someone who knows quite a great deal about chemistry icon_smile.gif.

    Growth hormone won't cause hair growth, you need testosterone for that icon_smile.gif
