HGH Precursors

Monday Sep 29, 2008

The concept of human growth hormone precursor is based on the fact  that if essential amino acids that make up human growth hormone molecule, are supplied to the body then the body may use the additional supply of amino acids to manufacture human growth hormone more easily and quickly.

Only young athletic individuals benefit from the effectiveness of human growth hormone precursor. With this approach there are no undesirable hormonal changes with the no change in the HGH level. Very high HGH precursor doses may be required, necessitating a gentle approach in patients with decreased renal function, or who are on medications that require excretion by the kidney, especially aspirin related compounds. The response rates may be as low as 10%, with only a small increase in human growth hormone levels. The response rates and the amount of HGH levels declines with age. IGF-1 levels should be checked before administering the dose and after 5 to 6 weeks in order to check the response rate.

What HGH products actually provide you with is not in fact HGH, but the chemical ‘precursors’ to allow your body to produce more of it. People with big pockets have always received actual HGH injections, which are quite  expensive and is cannot be afforded by most people.

What are ‘precursors’.

‘Precursors’ are mainly proteins or amino acids that help the human pituitary gland to produce more of HGH hormone. These basic building blocks are what you need to give your body ample amounts of HGH , as well as provide harmonious internal body environment through sleep, exercise, and good eating habits that helps in the production of more HGH  hormones.

Though Medical science is still struggling to discover the role played by these hormones to help keep people young, it is clear that providing the building blocks is a step in the right direction.

HGH precursors are effective if the person is young, so if you desire to achieve good results begin with a supplementation plan.  

Three of the most effective precursors include Ornithine, Glutamine, and Arginine, which are all “L” types amino acids. Two of these amino acids, namely Arginine and Ornithine became widely known for their requirement in Growth Hormone production in a life extension book that appeared in 1987.  These two protein precursors have been credited with significant parts of any hormone supplementation program as valuable additions to fat-loss and muscle development (body-building in this case).

Glutamine, a common protein in the human body is responsible for a great effect on HGH production. It was seen in medical trials that an increase in the  daily intake of Glutamine (only 2 grams) had powerful effects that produced and measured over 400% more of HGH in their blood stream. Isn’t that a huge amount of increase.

Though clinicaly approved research still has a long way to go before there is absolute proof through the federal science channels, there are enough cases to prove that products like GenF20 are beneficial. 

There are “precursor” sprays, pills and powders as well.  These products claim to produce its own HGH levels in the body.
