As we pass 20 years of age, our Pituitary Gland begins to slow down, producing ever decreasing levels of HGH. This decrease is, on average, 14% every 10 years. By the time we are 65, most of us are producing little or no HGH. It is this decline in HGH levels that lead to many of the symptoms that we all associate with aging; wrinkled skin, expanding waistlines, and less energy and vitality.
Since 1990, tens of thousands of studies have been published in medical journals worldwide, that show that increasing your own supply of HGH, either by injections, or natural nutrient supplements, can help you achieve dramatic anti-aging benefits. It should be noted that in all cases, it is recommended that HGH replacement therapy be accompanied by good dietary habits, and sensible exercise programs.

By restoring the levels of HGH back to the levels we had in our youth, has astonishing effects on people. Doctor Klatz's book is full of tested examples. The key to aging lies in our Pituitary gland. In our youth, this gland produced an abundance of human growth hormone. However, as we aged, our Pituitary gland's production of this vital hormone diminished. In fact, studies show that as we age, not only does our Pituitary gland produces less growth hormone, it also begins to produce Somatistatin. Somatistatin is a substance that inhibits our Pituitary gland from distributing, even the reduced amounts of HGH that it produces as we age.
Thousands of doctors world wide are prescribing HGH in injectable format, to treat patients who are successfully stopping and turning back Mother Nature's aging clock! Injectable HGH is a synthetic form of Human Growth Hormone. The only problem with Prescription HGH therapy via injectable format is the expense. Prescription HGH therapy costs about $1,000 A MONTH!
There is a clear and definite difference from obtaining pure Human Growth Hormones, which must be prescribed by a medical professional, and which is injected daily into the abdomen area of the body.
Here you would look at a product like Norditropin® made by the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk®.
Then there are a variety of supplements which claim to induce the pituitary gland to naturally manufacture increased levels of HGH (Human Growth Hormone).
These 'precursor' supplements normally contain a selection of ingredients, which we discuss below, but PLEASE NOTE that we do not support ANY claims made by these supplement manufacturers.
- Studies have show that L-Arginine improves immune responses to bacteria, viruses and tumor cells. L-Arginine has also been shown to promote wound healing and regeneration of the liver. It promotes the release of growth hormone. It is considered crucial to optimal muscle growth and tissue repair. (Austin Nutritional Research)
- Aids in the manufacture of other amino acids, and is part of the structure of hemoglobin and cytochromes. These are enzymes involved in providing energy. Also has a calming effect and is sometimes used to treat manic-depressive and aggressive individuals. Produces glucagon, which is an inhibitor of sugar cravings. Glycine helps trigger the release of oxygen to the energy requiring cell-making process. It is also considered a very important factor in manufacturing hormones that are responsible for a strong immune system. (Austin Nutritional Research)
- May help increase growth hormone secretion in high doses. Aids in immune system and liver function. Promotes healing functions. Ornithine's chief therapeutic value lies in its ability to enhance liver function, protect the liver and detoxify harmful substances. It has been used in the treatment of hepatic coma states. It also helps release a growth hormone that metabolizes excess body fat when combined with Arginine This growth hormone is also an immune system stimulant.
- Is a powerful amino acid that contributes to an anabolic state in muscles, improves immune function and enhances recovery. In addition to it being beneficial to athletes, it has now been shown to help the critically ill. IMPORTANT - Glutamine was added to the nutritional support that was given to critically ill patients who were suffering from various conditions, such as severe infections, pneumonia, burns and trauma. What they found was those who received the glutamine supplement had a 50% greater survival rate at six months than those who didn't receive glutamine.
- The reason that glutamine helped keep these patients alive is that it supports several important body systems. Glutamine is known to be essential to the immune system, which helps fight infection and disease in both critically ill and healthy persons alike. It is also known that the amount of skeletal muscle a person has is a critical determinant of life expectancy in severely ill patients. Glutamine helps prevent the loss of lean muscle mass and this greatly increases life expectancy. The bottom line is that if glutamine is so powerful an amino acid that it can increase survivability by 50% by preserving muscle and boosting immunity in the critically ill, imagine what beneficial effects it can have on a healthy body. (Griffiths RD, Jones C. Palmer TEA. Six month outcome of critically ill patients given glutamine-supplemented Parenteral Nutrition, Nutrition 1997)
- Recent studies have proven that L-Glutamine is one of two types of nourishes the brain. The other being Glucose. Your brain requires a constant supply of energy to think. L-Glutamine helps provide the fuel your brain cells need to help you fight fatigue and think clearly.
Without a doubt, the era of Anti-Aging is here. Clinical testing on thousands of people, has proven that we can age healthier, happier, with more strength and vitality than ever before.
