Why Oral HGH
Let's evaluate the choices we have when it comes to boosting the level of HGH (Human Growth Hormone). Medical injections of Growth Hormone are considered the gold standard by some, but they are out of reach for many people because of the high cost. However, I believe there are important reasons why injections may NOT be the best option, regardless of cost. A commonly given dosage is one I.U. (330,000 nanograms) which causes a very sharp spike in the blood level of HGH, followed by a plunge because of "negative feedback" inhibition of the pituitary gland. This approach of taking a huge morning dose of HGH (representing far more than the body would secrete in an entire 24 hours) is anti-physiological. Under normal conditions, HGH is secreted by the body in many little whiffs or puffs, or as they like to say, "pulses," throughout the day and night. Factors that trigger these pulses of HGH to be released include: deep sleep, intense exercise, and the consumption of high-protein foods. Blood travels fast, and once released, HGH is rapidly distributed to the tissues, and it very quickly binds with HGH-receptors in the cells, and then it's gone. That's why randomly checking the HGH level in the blood has little value because it fluctuates so widely over the course of the day. But, I believe that, as much as possible, we should try to mimic the body's natural rhythm when it comes to replacing HGH, and it is impossible to do that with injections.
The use of amino acid precursors/secretogogues to boost HGH is also very popular, and there has been some success with it. However, as with injections, there are problems with this approach. For one, it's only been proven to work well with young people who or are least in need of boosting their HGH. One Italian study showed no HGH boost at all among those age 60 and over who took arginine, glutamine, ornithine, and lysine in large amounts. And it's the large amounts that concern me. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and they each contain a nitrogen radical that comprises 1/6 of the molecule by weight. This nitrogen radial cannot be "burned." It must be removed from the amino acid by the liver and then converted from ammonia (which is highly irritating) into urea and then excreted by the kidneys. But it amounts to a significant amount of extra work for the liver and kidneys- over and above the normal work these organs have to do every day in processing the ordinary dietary proteins. There is also an acid residue left from the metabolism of these amino acids which lowers the ph of the body and strains the body's chemical buffers, which can lead to exorbitant calcium loss in the urine. All in all, the amino acid approach to boosting HGH is quite burdensome to the body, especially among older people, who have the least to gain from it. Be aware that the quantity of amino acids involved can be prodigious. For instance, the amino acid arginine is often used as an HGH releaser, but research has shown that 30 grams are needed to have any meaningful effect. The one gram capsule is the largest capsule made, and you'd have to swallow 30 of them, at once, in order to induce the effect. Obviously, that is not very practical. I should point out that any products that use tiny doses of amino acids as secretogogues are a complete waste of time and money.
The oral HGH spray, as developed by Dr. Robert Lawrence, uses real, pharmaceutical-grade, rDNA, bio-identical HGH and combines it with a patented, proprietary chemical transport agent that is referred to as the "polymer matrix." The polymer matrix microencapsulates the HGH molecule, which protects it and prevents it from oxidizing. As explained to me by Dr. Lawrence, the HGH molecule, although it is long (a sequence of 191 amino acids), it is conical in shape, and when reacted with the polymer matrix, it assumes a positive charge. The body itself is negatively charged, and the opposing magnetic fields have the effect to stretch or elongate the HGH molecule without breaking it. This is called "molecular folding," and it is much like putting a Nerf ball through a knot hole. The use of polymers to facilitate trans-membrane absorption is actually quite well known in Medicine. Pharmaceutical companies are rushing to come out with their own HGH mists which involve obtaining HGH from an inhaler (think of an asthma inhaler) and absorbing it through the tiny bronchioles, but the principle is the same. They already have such a method for insulin administration.
The effect of the oral HGH spray is far more physiological than the injections because the amount of HGH in one sprayed dose is comparable to a natural "pulse" that occurs normally in daily life. We generally recommend using the spray twice a day- first thing in the morning and last thing at night. However, that is partly for practical reasons because we realize that people have to go to work during the day, and we don't want them taking the bottle with them, thereby subjecting it to heat and light, and also there would also be the risk of breakage or loss. However, on the days that you are home, it might be better to take 2 sprays 3X daily, instead of 3 sprays twice daily, and apply the 3rd dose in the middle of the afternoon. That way you are adding three extra "pulses" to your diurnal cycle instead of two. The result is a "stealth" replacement of HGH that fits in neatly and precisely with the body's own rhythm. Nothing is disturbed. Nothing is disrupted. And there are no unintended consequences.
Please beware of so-called Homeopathic HGH. There is no such thing. It is just a gimmick. These homeopathic sprays often contain no measureable HGH at all. That's right; they may not contain one single molecule of HGH. But even if they did, the alcohol they contain would fracture the delicate HGH molecule and ruin it. In truth, the whole system of homeopathy is pure, unmitigated nonsense. I am not going to present all the reasons why that is the case, but if you are curious about it and need to know, then I recommend you read Follies and Fallacies in Medicine by Skrabanek and McCormick, which includes a chapter on homeopathy.
For me there is no question: even if I were as rich as Donald Trump, I would forego the injectible HGH and use the oral spray of Dr. Robert Lawrence because it is more physiological; it is much easier to take, and it is much safer. You may have heard that the injectible HGH has been associated with some problems, such as fluid retention, carpal tunnel syndrome, and joint pains. But no such problems have occurred with the oral HGH spray from Dr. Lawrence. It has zero side effects, and it is as easy as pie to take. I think it is the best alternative for HGH replacement, and that is why I use it, and that is why I recommend it.
