    Does anyone know if it's worth taking HGH supplement before bed? Does it work?

    Ya, I'd like to hear what y'all think. I'm talking about the OTC stuff, not the real hgh. It is pretty pricey, like $100/month American. Anyone have experience?

    I seriously doubt that you can buy HGH "over the counter." All those things with the big "HGH" on the label are just mixtures of ordinary vitamins and amino acids that are alleged to "support" production of HGH.

    Unless your diet is somehow deficient in vitamins and proteins, I doubt that they would have any special effect other than placebo.

    (BTW: If you had actual HGH, you would be injecting it, not swallowing and digesting it. And it would be very, very expensive.)

    Yup. Your body naturally secretes Growth Hormone in spikes certain times of day and night. If you measure it at the right time, you will see a rise in GH levels. The OTC products that show positive results have cheated by taking test subjects GH levels before a natural spike, then giving them the product and measuring again when their GH levels have naturally risen. Then claiming this spike was due to their product.

    Any oral supplement claiming to boost HGH is 100% worthless. HGH and HGH secretagogues are complex proteins that cannot survive the digestive process. They must be injected subcutaneously, and are very expensive.

    Real US pharma grade HGH will cost at least $500/week. Peptide secretagogues cost less-- about $100-200/week, but both require a doctor's prescription and both must be regularly injected for at least 3-6 months to produce results.

    Don't waste your $ on oral supplements-- they're all a scam.

    Yeah it seems most of the stuff out there is a scam these days. Looks like a simple whey protein, creatine and L-glutamine (not taken with the creatine)is still the best way to go combined with good old hard work!

    The product I was talking about is the USN HGH booster, it uses amino acids to naturally boost the levels of HGH so was trying to get an idea if anyone had used something like that. It can't hurt to have boosted hgh levels if they have found an amino acid which boosts it

    Find your local "anti-aging" specialist. He'll hook you up with the right HGH and HRT cocktail. icon_wink.gif

    Ya, I figured. Just wondered. I tried a test "support" product for a while to very little effect. Still, some logic in the idea of supplements. I also take a multivitamin and extra C and believe that helps. Same idea.

    Everybody cannot digest Whey protein well--and, it doesn't make a difference if it is the Isolate drink.
