Why Oral "HGH" Does Not Work?

  Man is a creature of the age in which he lives; only a few are able to raise themselves above the ideas of the time, Are you one of them?  
Absorption - The reason that HGH is an injectable preparation is that it is not orally active. It is destroyed by stomach acids and is too large a molecule to be absorbed through the mucosa of the mouth and throat. Claims of making a polymer of this molecule would just increase the molecule size even larger and make it even less possible to be absorbed.

Monitoring HGH is done with a serum assay of Somatomedin - C ( also named Insulin Like Growth Factor-1 [IGF-1]). Without appropriate monitoring, there is no way of adequately evaluating progress or hormonal replacement.

At the present time, there is no proven replacement regimen for human growth hormone except injectable high.
Understanding the role of oral supplements and HGH amino acids

Studies in young adults show that at least four amino acids can cause the release of up to 9 times as much HGH over a short period of time. Those amino acids are :

  1. L-glutamine : 9 grams
  2. L-arginine : 4 grams
  3. L-ornithine : 4 grams
  4. L-lysine : 2 grams

There are two problems with these studies. First, the amount of increase in growth hormone is of short duration and no long term increase in IGF-1 has been reported. And more importantly, these studies have not been performed in men and women over 50 years of age. It is a fact that the best releaser of HGH is strong exercise, and secondly a good night sleep - yet, neither cause the additional release of HGH in men over 60 years of age.

There are now a number of advertisements for oral HGH preparations. The problem with these is that only a rare individual can raise his or her IGF-1 levels to 350 ug/ml, which is the target for replacement. Why spend hundreds of dollars if your IGF-1 level does not reach adequate levels?

Remember that saying : You Get What You Pay For!

Efficacy - No study has shown any substantial change in IGF-1 from a homeopathic or low dose oral HGH formulation. Small changes in IGF-1 exceeding 30% have been suggested and no study exceeding eight weeks has shown results. HGH therapy is a lifelong protocol, not just a few weeks.
