A recent Shape magazine article starts out with a very provocative statement: “When you see a 50-year-old actress who can pass for 35, you can bet that good genes aren’t the only things responsible for her youthful glow.” It’s no secret that the rich and famous of Beverly Hills have been turning to Botox® and plastic surgery for years in an attempt to hang on to their youth. But did you know that many among this “it” crowd have been visiting some of the most expensive clinics in the world for controversial human growth hormone (HGH) therapy?
Why? Because they believe HGH helps reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, boost mood, heighten sex drive, give them plenty of energy, get rid of wrinkles and tighten saggy skin... making them look and feel decades – not years, but decades – younger. In fact, some are even calling it the “Fountain of Youth.”
So what exactly is HGH?
HGH is a single chain peptide hormone that’s manufactured deep within the brain... in the pituitary gland. It’s released into the bloodstream and travels throughout the body. It passes into your fat cells and can actually cause them to shrink. It enters your muscle cells, stimulating lean muscle growth so you look more tight and toned, even if you haven’t been working out. When it reaches the skin it maintains healthy blood flow, ramps up collagen production and strengthens the underlying substructure of the skin’s critical architecture, keeping your skin firm, tight and smooth, which is why so many experts call HGH the “youth” hormone... and why some believe it’s the key to combatting aging. The problem is that while our bodies do manufacture HGH, our levels begin to decline rapidly as we age, and until recently the best way to increase our HGH levels was through expensive prescription injections (costs can run as high as $1500 per month). In addition to their high cost, these synthetic HGH injections are also extremely controversial, because some experts fear that introducing synthetic HGH into the body may upset the natural production of HGH.

"Even with more than 550 stores, we're still having a tough time keeping SeroVital in stock!"
Is there a way to increase growth hormone levels naturally?
Until recently, the answer to that question would have been a resounding “No.” However, in September of 2012, a group of some of the most highly respected scientists in the world presented their research findings at the prestigious Obesity Society’s 30th Annual Scientific Meeting. These research results made headlines, because they showed that for the first time, there was an oral compound capable of increasing mean, bioactive, serum (blood) growth hormone levels... by 682%. Since that time
The formula that was the subject of these research findings is now being sold by SanMedica International™ under the trade name SeroVital. And despite its much-hyped research, SeroVital remained an “underground” sensation... until the famed Dr. Oz discussed the product’s research on his show.
He introduced the show segment by asking his audience, “How many of you want to start feeling 20 years younger right now?” and then discussed what he called “a new frontier: stimulating your body’s production of growth hormones naturally with amino acids.” And when Dr. Oz told his audience, “I have been searching for this from the day we started the show. I’ve been looking for ways of increasing HGH naturally because I don’t like getting the injections,” you can imagine the frenzy he started.
Before long, SanMedica was having trouble keeping SeroVital– with its proprietary, highly specialized, patent-pending amino acid formula – in stock. It went from underground sensation to full-blown phenomenon.
Now, after more than 30 years of time-consuming, detailed research, there’s finally an affordable oral formula that encourages the pituitary gland to increase growth hormone production naturally, with out dangerous drugs or synthetic hormone injections.
Is it worth it?
To me, anything that may reduce wrinkles, tighten saggy skin, decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass, strengthen bones, and boost mood, while giving you plenty of energy and improving sex drive, is a no-brainer. However, make no mistake about it, the “established” medical community (and of course, they know everything) would say its benefits are largely anecdotal, with research that’s preliminary. But there’s no denying that something that has a chance of making you look and feel decades, not years, but DECADES, younger, is... at the very least... irresistible. Frankly, I’m ready to try it.
How about you?
SHAPE magazine says:
“When you see a 50-year-old actress who can pass for 35, you can bet that good genes aren’t the only things responsible for her youthful glow.”
So what’s the catch?
“There are three.”
“First, as with hGH injections, SeroVital is not a ‘magic bullet,’ but one part of a healthy lifestyle choice including a sensible diet and exercise regimen.”
“Second, for proper absorption, you have to take SeroVital-hgh on an empty stomach. That means you either have to take it first thing in the morning and then not eat anything for two hours, or take it at night, at least two hours after your last meal... before you go to bed.”
“And last but not least, while SeroVital is far less expensive than prescription hGH injections, it’s still not cheap. SeroVital will cost you about $100 a month.”
