Essential facts about HGH supplements
1. Releaser type HGH supplements are safe.
The most common and safest supplements are called releasers and are similar to amino acid "multi-vitamins." They are combined with other ingredients to provide the most HGH benefits. They are safest because foreign hormones are not introduced into the body. The products we have reported are releasers.
2. Diets lacking essential amino acids can benefit from HGH supplements.
Low cholesterol and vegetarian diets that are not carefully planned can be deficient in certain amino acids that would normally induce the pituitary gland to release a burst of growth hormone.
3. Choice of supplement delivery is an individual preference.
Supplements are available in capsule, tablet, or spray form. Effectiveness depends predominately on personal preference and proper usage according to the manufacturer's instructions. Some manufacturers claim that certain delivery systems are deficient, but our research has not confirmed this claim.
4. Long-term storage tips.
Bottles can be safely stored in a cool and dry area away from direct sunlight for several months. For long term storage, bottles should be shielded from light, heat, and moisture. The best solution is to place bottles in a brown paper bag in the refrigerator. You should be able to store HGH supplements for up to 3 years with no loss in potency.
5. Results will vary.
Because releaser supplements rely on the user’s ability to release natural growth hormone, results will vary by individual. Consumer responses indicate that healthy diet and active lifestyle magnify effects of HGH supplements.
6. Effective only for those without growth hormone deficiencies.
No supplement alone will work for people suffering from growth hormone deficiency. Non-prescription supplements do not contain synthetic human growth hormone, but instead stimulate healthy pituitary glands to release additional growth hormone. This natural process of HGH supplements is safest and most effective for self-administered usage.
7. Be alert to fraudulent claims.
Prescription strength human growth hormone must be injected and costs thousands of dollars per year. Any manufacturer claiming that their product contains such human growth hormone in oral delivery is misleading the consumer.
Some consumers and manufacturers have made claims that certain individuals might develop a tolerance to HGH supplements if used regularly for more than six consecutive months. A few manufacturers even recommend that consumers take a break from the supplements after six months. The length of recommended breaks ranges from 1 to 6 months.
Consumer Products Review was unable to find a definitive answer on this matter. Given that the possibility for building a tolerence seems credible, we suggest that consumers monitor their own response and stop taking HGH supplements for a period of time if they feel that benefits have diminished.
