Boosting Natural Growth Hormone in Our Body with Secretagogues



What is Secretagogues and its benefits in helping the body to produce natural growth hormone?

Because of the expense involved in using genetically engineered Growth Hormone (GH), scientists have tried to use cheaper substances which stimulate the body to boost its own natural GH production. These products are called secretagogues. You are going to hear more about these during the next few years.

Some of these newer products are based on herbal extracts or amino acid sequences (peptides). Amino acids used as secretagogues are arginine, ornithine, lysine, glutamine and tryptophan. These are best used in combination for maximum effects, not just on their own.

Another releaser of growth hormone is the chemical GHB which, in an experiment, was found to increase the level of growth hormone 16 times in a single hour.

The effectiveness of the secretagogues is still being scrutinized. This is an area of intense research at present and there are already several secretagogues on the market. Some laboratories have even produced homoeopathic GH, claiming that their product has a string of benefits: improvement of joint pains, night sweats, skin dryness, immune function and muscle strength.
