Latest on the market for anti-aging supplements is the GenF20 Plus HGH Releaser product. For starters, the item in question comes in two options: pill form and oral spray. The merchandise is endorsed by three people with multiple doctorates: Dr. Steven Lamm, M.D, Dr. Jeff Hill, DPT, M.A., CSCS and Dr. Anna Lepeley, Ph.D., CSCS, CISSN.
According to the website, the GenF20 Plus HGH Releaser formula enables a stark increase in energy, libido, muscle mass and tone, improved metabolism, reverse gray hairs, replenishing sleep, fat minimizing, and promotes youth and beauty.
Right. So, how does this latest and greatest formula function to meet all of the above-listed claims?
Essentially, from birth, the body produces the complex chain of hormones known as HGH, or Human Growth Hormone, which slows in production approximately around the late 20’s for most people. This usually alludes to a higher rate of oxidation of the cells, skin losing elasticity (firmness), slower metabolism, sluggish rate of vital organ repair,
Science reveals that one of the main mechanisms that encourage high functionality of HGH production is exposing the body to high amounts of amino acid chains – you know them in the umbrella term ‘proteins’. By consuming quantitative amounts of proteins, this in turn, can signal the body to continue output of HGH (see PubMed for source).
What is found to inhibit the succession of HGH is a complex protein chain found in the digestive tract and the hypothalamus known as somatotropin. Somatotropin, also known as the somatotropin release inhibiting factor (SRIF), is the bane of HGH, as it shuts down receptor sites and minimizes the output.
GenF20 Plus HGH Releaser reveals that they limit the release of somatotropin via usage of various amino acids, particularly acetylcholine in order to support neurotransmission receptor sites.
As with most supplements, the base ingredients for GenF20 Plus HGH Releaser is herbs. The Chinese herbs which the company comments are the highest contributors are Astragalus and Deer Antler. Before diving into the “take my money” mindset, it’s appropriate that a little background information is provided for these herbs.
When it comes to astragalus, this plant is certainly a wonder herb. Astragalus is considered highly medicinal in Oriental medicine, and mainly its root is utilized. The root has been known to have anti-viral, anti-oxidative, tonifying, immuno-modulating, and somewhat helpful for the lymph system.
When we say anti-viral, its warpath includes the hotshot viruses like influenza, herpes, Lyme’s, etc. So what is GenF20 Plus’s spin on this powerful plant? It’s phytonutrients are utilized to limit oxidation in the body, support ATP (energy) production, boost the immune system, and has a ‘warming’ effect on the metabolism.
As far as Deer Antler, especially in Chinese Medicine, it is highly sought after (yes, it is an actual ground up antler). One of the primary reasons being that it is helpful for blood circulation in men.
This, in turn, segues to higher energy, stamina and of course, a more potent libido. Deer antler is thought to promote longer years and vitality to those who ingest it regularly. In terms of cognitive support, it stimulates a neurotransmitter pathway for one of the chains of HGH.
Another critical ingredient that holds significant purpose is Phosphatidyl Choline. This is another complex chain of amino acids which are imperative for suppressing the output of somatotropin, Remember, somatotropin limits the manufacturing of HGH in the body.
The last 5 primary constituents which are components of the GenF20 Plus formula is Gamma -aminobutyric acid (GABA), which helps to promote proper cycles of rest by way of “warming/cooling” cycles; this in effect stimulates HGH release in the pituitary.
Alpha GPC is the next contestant, which ‘turns off’ somatotropin and encourages dopamine production for those feel-good sensations. Lastly, chromium which triggers a cellular sugar uptake and allows for conversion to HGH, and colostrum, which also acts as a pathway for HGH.
Probably everyone’s biggest question while reading this review would be “Does it actually work?”. While there is no personal feedback of its usage from this end, there is the matter of the sordid history behind the Human Growth Hormone.
There is a background of abuse in people (particularly athletes and drug-addicts) arranging for illegal injections of HGH, hence why this product could certainly raise some eyebrows if one has any knowledge of the endocrine system. However, after doing some mindful research, it has become evident that this particular product may be one of the better supplements on the market in terms of their efficacy.
One of the major components of some promise for GenF20 Plus HGH Releaser is how this particular formula seems more bioavailable for individuals in regards to the quantity of proteins, the enteric coating, and the ingredients.
In addition, it is somewhat disconcerting as a potential consumer to read on their FAQ page what source GenF20 Plus ‘receives’ their HGH from, and there is essentially no answer to the question, only touted that it is ‘natural’. Questionable, at best.
There are multiple announcements in which the makers of the GenF20 Plus have remarked on what it’s benefits are, from reversing gray hair to tightening skin to increased libido, better sleep, so on and so forth.
Certainly, your immune system would likely improve just based on some of the ingredients alone. The amount of amino acid chains in the GenF20 Plus HGH Releaser is also a more positive indicator to bioavailability given that humans – especially Western civilization, suffer from malnutrition due to poor diet or malabsorption from chronic chemical exposure and/or health conditions.
The amino acids the ingredients label listed are correlated with promoting the body to go into a more delta state (relaxation), improving cognition, supporting the metabolism by replenishing the Krebs Cycle (energy cycle), supporting the uptake of collagen into the body, etc.
To date according to the claims on the GenF20 Plus’s website, there are no side-effects in lieu of the merchandise being comprised of natural compounds. Allow us to say this: whether or natural, there can always be a reaction, and potential side effect. Everyone’s biochemistry is different. Given that their clinical trials are not published in PubMed, the proclaimed benefits are questionable.
Overall, in lieu of the information on Human Growth Hormone, the blueprint of the product does seem fairly user-friendly. We digress, there are some holes in regards to their testing and some unanswered questions.
The jury is still out here, but there is a distinct possibility it could be a favorable supplement to add to your daily regimen. They do allow for returns, so if you feel comfortable being your own human test subject, then maybe there is some gain to be had.
