1) Oxidative breakdown at the cellular level, which leads to DNA damage, and
2) Decreased hormone secretion, including testosterone, progesterone, estrogen and growth hormone, among others.
Oxidative breakdown has now been proven to be slowed by taking nutritional supplements containing antioxidants and other cofactors, such as minerals and phytonutrients (see references). Likewise, hormone supplementation can slow, and in some cases even reverse, signs of aging. Of all the hormones that decrease with age, the one most commonly associated with premature aging is deficiency of Human Growth Hormone, or HGH.
Researchers in aging are becoming more and more convinced that supplementing vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients along with hormone replacement is the best way of slowing the aging process and keeping our vitality well into our 80's. (After all, longevity is not desireable unless it is accompanied by health and vitality.) HGH research is especially exciting, because studies have shown it to be able to actually REVERSE some of the signs of aging. Since our body does not secrete this hormone efficiently as we age (although it continues to produce it in the pituitary gland), it cannot repair itself to prevent a breakdown in many of our systems.

share with you the benefits of having higher HGH levels after age 40.
Increased energy and endurance are the results of many of the individual health benefits that restoring, or increasing, our HGH levels can bring about. Restoring our HGH levels can improve our cardiac system and lung function, we have a greater oxygenated blood supply. The result is more endurance to work or play harder and longer. If you are active in sports, greater endurance is one of the keys to greater accomplishments. If you are in the workplace, more energy and endurance are vital to doing your job well. If you are raising a family, more energy and endurance help you with one of the toughest jobs of all! If you are retired, more energy and endurance will help you enjoy your golden years to the fullest. The proven benefits of HGH replacement therapy in improved sleep, memory retention, weight loss, and cardio-vascular functions all contribute to giving us back the energy of our youth and the ability to maintain that energy into middle and old age.
For those who work out or participate in sports, HGH Replacement Therapy has been shown to lead to improved levels of sports and exercise performance. HGH Replacement Therapy will not, in of itself, increase your skill levels, but it will allow you to work longer and harder to develop those skills in your chosen physical activity. Currently injectable HGH use is outlawed in amateur competition due to it's anabolic-like activity. GH releasers are not banned, however, as they are not considered drugs and are naturally found in foods.
Increased Resistance To Sports And Other Physically Related InjuriesAnother extremely important benefit for anyone that is physically active, is that as your levels of HGH increase, your bones and ligaments and tendons will be strengthened. HGH regenerates the processes that builds healthy tendons, ligaments, and increases bone density. This can help you avoid common sports and exercise related injuries due to a weakness in any of these joint and bone related components. More recent studies have shown that neurologic injuries are also less likely with amino acid supplementation.
The Importance Of Exercise And Diet:It should be noted that to achieve the maximum benefits that come from higher levels of HGH, you should exercise regularly and have a sensible diet, although some benefits will be noticed even without them.
Studies by Keith Kelley, M.D.
have shown that by replenishing our levels of HGH, our Immune System
such as: the manufacture of new antibodies, increased production of

In a placebo controlled study at Thomas Hospital in London, of 24 adults with HGH deficiency, the hormone treated group had no net change in weight but they lost an average of 12.5 pounds of fat and gained an average of 12.1 pounds of lean body mass.
A study by Rudman on elderly men between age 60 and 81, found that after six months of treatment, the treated group gained an average of 8.8% in lean body mass and lost an average of 14.4% in fat mass. The lean body mass included and increase in the bone density of the lumbar spine by 1.6% and the liver and spleen grew by 19% and 17% respectively."
HGH May Be One Of The Most Effective Fat Loss Regimens Ever Discovered"In a double blind, placebo controlled crossover study of overweight women, HGH therapy caused an average loss of more than 4.6 pounds of body fat, most of this in the abdomen.
In two double blind, placebo controlled studies by David Clemmons, M.D., at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, HGH combined with dieting, accelerated weight loss. All of the people participating in the study were between 35 to 60% over their ideal body weight. In the studies, which were either for six or eleven weeks, HGH combined with diet caused a 25% acceleration in the rate of fat loss above and beyond the effects of diet alone. In the 11 week period, the HGH treated subjects lost 30 to 32 pounds, compared with 20 to 25 pounds in the controls. And while the controls lost muscle along with fat, the treated (HGH) group held on to their body tone."
HGH Controls ObesityHGH may well prove to be the answer not only in reducing body fat, but also for may of the problems that accompany obesity. It is well known in human physiology that muscle and fat tissue metabolism are directly influenced by the interplay between HGH, amino acids, exercise, insulin, stress hormones and fats. Little, if any, fat burning can take place in the presence of high insulin levels, such as those found commonly after eating a meal high in fat or carbohydrates. HGH may be the answer not only in removing fat, but all the problems that come with it. The message is clear, if you are obese, there are now, for the first time, proven methods for getting rid of the fat that poses such a danger to your health and life.
Important: "Most strikingly for
purposes, HGH treatment preferentially reduces abdominal fat that is
with increased risk of heart attack. The loss of abdominal fat
has implications for type 2 diabetes, since there is a close

In studies of HGH deficient adults, HGH significantly improved blood

Patients usually started noticing changes within a few weeks of treatment. Fine lines vanished, deeper wrinkles receded, and facial fat decreased so that puffs of fat under the eyes evaporated, while the facial muscles that lift and hold the skin became stronger. Another result is the elimination, over a period of time of Cellulite.

Three different studies in Sweden, Denmark, and England reported that HGH replacement therapy had dramatic, positive effects on patients suffering from low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
In a report by L. Cass Terry, M.D., Ph.D. to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in December 1996, Dr. Terry reported that his clinical group of 900 people, 300 or which were doctors, 80% experienced improved attitude toward life, and 67% experienced enhanced emotional stability.
A recent clinical study by

The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute claims that there are 97 million people in the United States alone that are Obese!

insulin resistance. By eliminating this form of fat, HGH improves

health and your life."
Many of the headlines and much of the copy for this page have been taken from the book "Hormones Of Youth" by Ronald Klatz, M.D. Most of the studies on Growth Hormone were done using injectable HGH, which has been approved by the FDA for many years. Growth Hormone Releasers do not put extra growth hormone into the body, they simply allow your pituitary gland to release it's own GH more effectively. Unlike the injectable growth hormone, no significant adverse effects have been reported from using the releasers. It is not recommended, however, for lactating and pregnant women or anyone with diagnosed cancer. HGH does not cause cancer, but there is not a concensus of opinion regarding its effect on those persons, and it would seem prudent to avoid them until more research is published.
(The above information is for educational purposes only and has not been evaluated by the FDA.)
We recommend taking the releasers vs. the actual injectable growth hormone because of their better safety profile. The body will not release an unhealthy amount of growth hormone.
We carry several different types of growth hormone releasers now on the market, including powders, effervescent tablets (Pro-HGH) and homeopathic releasers and true HGH sprays. The product we recommend is a powdered amino acid blend called Maximum HGH Plus, from New Sun, since it has been proven to be effective at increasing blood levels of IGF-1, an indicator of growth hormone levels.
