The HGH Patches
There are now skin patches on the market which are claimed to increase growth hormone in the body. These products may contain herbs, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and/or homeopathic HGH.
The sellers may claim their product is the same as, or is better than the sublingual (under the tongue) sprays, and they say patches are much more convenient to take than sprays. Patches may be more convenient but they are not better than legitimate FDA registered homeopathic sprays.
Legitimate medical patches are used as a way to provide a constant and steady flow of the medication over a long period of time. The pituitary gland naturally releases human growth hormone in rapid spurts at various times throughout the day, it does not release it constantly.
The pituitary gland spurts the HGH into the bloodstream and then it is quickly taken in by the liver. This causes the liver to release growth factors such as IGF-1. Giving the pituitary gland constant stimulation to release human growth hormone goes against the body's natural process.
The body uses cycles, it has a certain time to release HGH and a certain time to rest. It does not release it constantly and so wearing a patch that constantly stimulates the pituitary gland is not a smart choice.
We need to observe the body's natural feedback mechanism. The cell receptor sites also need time to rest, they should not be forced to remain at a constant state of stimulation, which could occur by wearing a patch if it was actually effective. I reiterate that patches are intended to provide a constant flow of the ingredients while it is worn.
Our sublingual products are cycled, and we also recommend they be taken around the times the pituitary gland is known to naturally release HGH, which is upon awaking, with exercise or strenuous activity, and at the beginning of deep level sleep.
The optimum therapy is that which is the most similar to what the body does naturally so I see no medical reason why any type of patch would be better than sublingual sprays that are taken at various times to align with the pituitary gland's natural time of growth hormone release.
In my opinion the sublingual route is also better than any topical route because the mucous membrane under the tongue is very thin and blood rich so the ingredients enter the bloodstream more quickly and completely. The main purpose of the skin on the body is to keep things out and to protect what is underneath it.
