    I have read some literature about the supplement, PoweFULL that is supposed to increase muscle mass and primarily increases your Growth Hormone (GH) naturally. I am interested in incorporating this supplement into my fitness/nutrition regimen. However, I am definitely going to meet with my general health practitioner first to discuss this. I also wanted any feedback/advice from you guys (good or bad) in regards to this product. In essence, does it WORK?

    I went to the web page from USPlabs to read about the product. There is no mention about what the ingredients are. Remember supplements are not tested by the FDA for safety or efficacy. The amino acid arginine, if given by a physician intravenously, will cause the pituitary gland to release growth hormone. Arginine has to be given directly into a vein to work. Arginine taken by mouth will not work since it is digested. Supplement manufacturers claim that arginine by mouth will work. These supplements are sold to guys wanting to build muscle or older men as a fountain of youth type product. The only way you can benefit from growth hormone is to be prescribed human growth hormone by a physician. It has to be given by injection since it is a protein like insulin and would be digested by the stomach.
    Here is a web page from Quackwatch about scams involving growth hormone. Most of the article deals with the fountain of youth claims but there is mention about bodybuilding. I could not find the ingredients but perhaps I missed that part of the ad. I myself would not take a product unless I knew what it contained. The decision however is yours. I agree that you should discuss it with your health practitioner first. Maybe he can find out what substances are in the product. You can ask the manufacturer also.

    This shit doesn't get studied. They basically make whatever claim they want.

    What DOES work is CALORIES, REST, TRAINING, REPEAT.

    Spend your money on FOOD.
