Default Hgh?

Has anyone used or have any info on HGH (Human Growth Hormone)? My Mother asked me about it and says she has heard good things about it, specifically for the elderly. The websites selling this stuff say it is the fountain of youth. Is this stuff for real? I would like to purchase some for my parents, but HGH is not cheap. I donít want to drop my hard earned money on a placebo.

CD, HGH is a prescription drug, so unless this website requires a script I wouldn't trust it. One of my buddies who' 46, is using 4iu's 5 days on 2 off and getting good results. He says he feels like a youngster, and I swear his skin looks alot better! If you can get legit HGH, it can be a great drug for people over the age of 35.

Thanks for the info Snatchito. Supposedly the best benefits come from the injectable version. Iíve seen spray and tablet HGH on the web and at the Vitamin Shoppe. This is the active ingredient in the spray:
Naturally Derived Growth Factor, 340 Ng
I guess Iíll drop the cash and let her try it. You hit the needle on the head saying "If you can get legit HGH" hopefully this stuff I buy is worth it.

It's bogus. Been there, done that. Don't waste your money or else take it back. The only place to get it legit would be to go to a hormone replacement therapy clinic and hope maybe insurance would cover it because it's expensive. But I guarantee you, any HGH from the Vitamin Shoppe is bogus homeopathic natural bullcarp. The recombinant rHGH from 191 amino acids is total bullshit.

The only oral version of any HGH is Oratropin-1, and that's Insulin-like Growth Factor-1, or IGF-1. I've put a link to a review I did in this column if you're interested.

But the homeopathic stuff that Larry Pepe is selling under Sprayflex and all the others is a total waste of money. What the hell does 340 nanograms measure out to be anyway?

I know nanograms are even smaller than micrograms! I don't like how the homeopathic medicines or whatever you want to call them are supposed to work.

Homeopathic products are supposed to work like small pox vaccinations, in other words your getting a little dose of the dog that bit you. The theory is you would build up a natural resistance as your body would build antibodies to the thing that got you sick or they would kickstart a hormone naturally in your body by primering it up. It's just a bunch of bull IMHO.

CD, they really are a rip off, I was disappointed when I found out that a company that I like and has good products, came out with this stuff. It just made me look at the company in a different way. The thing that bothers me is, do they really think this stuff will work or do they know it doesn't work and know that they are selling a bunk product. Good luck to you and your parents CD!

Thanks for saving me some cash guys. I'll buy them a gym membership that is probably the only thing that would really help them feel young again.

Reporter can you send me that link so I can check out your review.

Alot of doctor's are cool when it comes to stuff like that. If I was to ever try a cycle of gear (which I won't) I'd definately enlist my doctor's help with certain aspects of it. Try and see if your parents can get a prescription, then you can pay the surcharge.
