Your body's natural HGH is a complex hormone composed of 191 amino acids.
The first true synthetic human growth hormone (somatotropin) was first produced in 1986 by Eli Lily Corporation. In 1990, a ground-breaking study was published by Dr. Rudman in the New England Journal of Medicine. By using a controlled double-blind six-month study, Dr. Rudman discovered that between two groups of men with identical diets and exercise programs, the study group that was given injectable HGH had an 8.8% increase in lean muscle mass and a 14.4% decrease in body fat over the other group, as well as improvements in sleep, energy levels, skin and muscle tone.
While this was a revolutionary discovery under strict scientific scrutiny, the high cost and risk of injections prevented HGH from becoming widely accepted in the United States. Attempts to produce an oral form of somatotropin did not work as it was incredibly costly to produce. As well, the HGH molecule was too large to be absorbed through the lining of the mouth.
Real synthetic injectable hormone remains available today by prescription.
Releasers are the least expensive HGH products available today. Releasers provide the building blocks of the 191 amino acid human growth hormone; predominately L-group amino acids such as L-valine and L-arginine. While these are components of real HGH, they are several chemical conversion steps away from being completely real HGH.
