Amino Acid HGH Releasers - the Pill and Powder Products
All the non-prescription human growth hormone supplements that are digested; the pills, capsules, tablets, and powders are called releasers. They may also be called secretagogues, enhancers, precursors, or stimulators. Such products are dietary supplements that are regulated by the FDA's food laws.
The main ingredients in the HGH releasers are amino acids, and some also contain vitamins and herbs such as ginseng.
The Ingredients Contained in HGH Releasers
As previously stated the main ingredients in the pill and powder products are amino acids.
Amino acids are nothing new, they are the building blocks of protein. Bodybuilders and athletes have been taking the exact same amino acids in dietary supplements for many years, long before there were any HGH products, and they still take those same amino acids daily.
We receive amino acids in food and in various health supplements and protein powders.
As previously stated, many of the releaser type products contain vitamins, especially the B vitamins. Other ingredients commonly found in these products are herbs such as ginseng.
We know the B vitamins and ginseng can provide benefits such as increased energy, so it may be that these ingredients are added to a product to make it appear to be more effective.
For instance, increased energy is one of the most popular benefits of increasing human growth hormone in the body, so if the person taking such a product has an increase in energy he may think that his HGH level is increasing, when in reality he is only experiencing the benefits of vitamins and/or ginseng.
More About the Amino Acids in HGH Pills and Powders
Some amino acids have been found to help stimulate the release of growth hormone, however, the amounts needed of each of the amino acids are so much that they cannot be placed in 1 or 2 pills or capsules and so HGH releasers do not contain the recommended amounts of the amino acids they contain.
For instance, the recommended daily amount of arginine to take is 2 -3 gm per day, that's 2000 -3000 mg per day.
High doses of arginine can cause stomach upset and people with herpes virus should not take it because it can aid the replication of the virus. Also, people who take NSAIDS should be careful when taking arginine.
The recommended amount of Glutamine is 1.5 to 6 gms per day (1500-6000 mg).
People who are sensitive to MSG (monosodium glutamate) should be careful when taking glutamine because the body converts it into glutamate. Those who take anti-seizure medications and those with liver or kidney problems should consult their doctor before taking glutamine.
Above I included information about only 2 of the amino acids that may affect HGH release along with more information you should want to know about. You should also seek information about the other amino acids and ingredients found in any pill or powder product you are considering.
The amino acids that may be used in releasers:
**Before buying any HGH product that is in either pill, tablet, capsule, or powder form find out how much of each ingredient the product contains. Most products do not contain the recommended amounts needed to successfully stimulate the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.
HGH Releaser Sprays
Due to the great popularity and effectiveness of homeopathic HGH sprays over the years, there are now some spray products that contain amino acids, vitamins, herbs, etc., in homeopathic amounts (example: Sytropin). These types of sprays contain no homeopathic human growth hormone (the only form of HGH contained in any non-injection product).
Those wishing to supplement their amino acid and vitamin intake may do so at their local health food store without purchasing an HGH pill or powder product that doesn't contain enough of the amino acids to do any good.
In my case, besides the foods I eat I receive amino acids from the protein powder I take daily and I also supplement my diet with glutamine for its GI benefits, but I would not depend upon amino acids alone for my human growth hormone therapy.
I have spoken to numerous people who have tried the amino acid releaser pills and of those who said they received benefits many said the benefits only lasted for 2-3 months and then faded away.
I believe optimum benefits are received by taking HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 while also ensuring the body has the needed building blocks, which are the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids the body needs to actually build the new healthy cells the growth factors of HGH will ask it to build.
