    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anti-Aging Proprietary Blend:

    L-LYSINE HCL

    An essential amino acid that affects bone formation, height, and genital function. A combination of lysine and arginine may increase thymic hormone secretion in older humans, partially reversing the immunodeficiency of aging. Again this could be HGH-related.

    L-ARGININE

    An essential amino acid, meaning that the body cannot create amino acid on its own but must get it from foods we eat. There is no doubt that arginine causes the secretion of HGH. Arginine appears to stimulate HGH by blocking the secretion of the HGH inhibitor somatostatin. It also greatly enhances the effect of growth hormone-releasing hormone when that are given together. Arginine increases fat burning and muscle building tissue through the stimulation of growth hormone, increasing the weight and activity of the thymus gland, boosting immunity, fighting cancer, promoting healing of burns and other wounds, protecting the liver and detoxifying harmful substances, and enhances male fertility. It also restores sexual function in impotent men.

    L-ORNITHINE

    A French designer nutrient that consists of ornithine bound to two molecules of alpha ketoglutarate, which is a precursor to glutamine and has HGH stimulating effects. It boosts glutamine levels even more than glutamine itself. In France it is used to rebuild body tissue after surgery, trauma, burns, and other catabolic (body-wasting) conditions.

    GABA (Gama-Aminobutric Acid)

    Gamma-aminobutric acid (GABA) inhibits cells from overfiring. GABA can be taken to calm the body in much the same was as valium, librium, and other tranquilizers without the fear of addiction. Take 750 milligrams of this amino acid for its tranquilizing effect. GABA is being recommended in place of many drugs. With niacinamide and inositol, it prevents anxiety and stress-related messages from reaching the motor centers of the brain by filling its receptor site. GABA functions as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system by decreasing neuron activity.

    GLYCINE

    Glycine retards muscle degeneration by supplying additional creatine. It is necessary for central nervous system function and a healthy prostate. Its inhibitory action helps prevent epilepsy. This amino acid has been used in the treatment of bipolar depression. Glycine is needed by the immune systems for the synthesis of the nonessential amino acids. Too much of this amino acid can displace glucose in the metabolic chain and cause fatigue. The proper amount produces more energy.

    L-GLUTAMINE

    The most abundant amino acid in the body. It is a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that the body may not be able to synthesize all it needs when it is under physical stress. The immune system and the gut practically live on glutamine. If the body does not produce enough glutamine, muscle loss and immune dysfunction can occur. Glutamine is the latest amino acid to generate excitement as a HGH releaser thanks to a 1995 study by Thomas C. Welbourne of Louisiana State University College of Medicine. Studies showed that a small oral dose of glutamine raised HGH levels more than four times over that of a placebo.

    L-TYROSINE

    L-Tyrosine is important in the treatment of anxiety, depression, allergies, and headaches. It aids in the production of melanin (pigment of the skin and hair) and in the functions of the adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary glands. Low plasma levels of tyrosine have been associated with hypothyroidism. It acts as a mood elevator, suppresses the appetite, and reduces body fat. It is involved in the initial breakdown of phenylalanine in the liver. L-Tyrosine can be produced from L-phenylalanine. A lack of tyrosine triggers a deficiency of the hormone norephinephrine at a specific brain location, which results in depression and mood disorders. In addition to being a precursor for norepinephrine, L-Tyrosine is also used to synthesize epinephrine and dopamine. It has also been used for withdrawal from drugs.

    VITAMIN B-6 (Pyridoxine)

    Vitamin B-6, known as Pyridoxine, acts as a co-factor in growth and repair of tissues. It plays an important role in the production of energy from protein. One’s Vitamin B-6 requirements are proportional to protein intake because pyridoxine is required for amino acid metabolism. Vitamin B-6 has been used therapeutically to ameliorate the effects of pre-menstrual syndrome, and nervous disorders.

    MUCUNA PRURIENS

    Mucuna Pruriens is a leguminous climbing plant, with long, slender branches, alternate, lanceolate leaves on hairy petioles, 6 to 12 inches long, with large, white flowers, growing in clusters of two or three, with a bluish-purple, butterfly-shaped corolla. The root is used as diuretic, tonic and stimulant. It is recommended for the nervous system, facial paralysis, hemiplegia, delirium in fevers, and dropsy, in decoction. The infusion of the pods is also good for dropsy. The hairs of the pods are given for threadworms. The seeds are considered astringent, aphrodisiac, tonic, nervine and nutritive. They are given in powder or in decoction in cases of leukorrhea, spermatorrhea, menstrual disorders etc.

    MANGANESE

    Inside bones is a collagen protein “matrix” that forms their “core.” The matrix must be able to support the minerals deposited around it and yet remain supple enough to prevent bone fracture. Manganese is the mineral that keeps collagen protein strong yet supple. Manganese also plays a vital role in maintaining joint flexibility and movement.

    CHROMIUM

    Works with insulin in the metabolism of sugar and helps the body utilize protein for growth and repair of muscle tissue.

    KELP

    Kelp is a group of brown algae with large flat, leaf-like fronds that are usually attached to rocks in 10-150 foot seas. Kelp is employed by herbalists as a mineral supplement. It is especially prized for its iodine content, for which it is used to treat hypothyroidism and obesity.

    L-Arginine can cause accelerated Herpes virus replication.
    CFS patients ofetn take Lysine, an amino acid that is thought to decrease herpes viral titers.

    I've read elsewhere about one or two others' w/CFS/FM experience with HGH -

    They said they did better, until they quit the injections. Had to have them every day, and it costs somewhere around $1,000/month, and no insurance covers it.

    Also have a doctor friend who tried it, altho he is 'normal', said he could really tell the effects but hated having to stick a needle in himself every day; he even complained about the $$ even tho he got it at cost, it was still $500/mo.

    Therre are boards I've heard about on the net of people who use it; apparently the cancer link is baseless, have read about people who have active cancer who have used it with no problem, and on the advice of their doctors.

    My husband wants me to try it, says it'd be less than what I spend now....!?! Tempting, but I'm not quite convinced yet to spend the $$.

    The HGH stimulants/precursors, as usual it seems to help some, not others; but it seems like you'd have to take a LOT to get the same effect as an actual injection of HGH, so maybe the cost would be the same in the end, if it worked.

    Hope this helps,
    Victoria

    if so I do know soneone who says it has done wonders for him.

    I've found a simpler and cheaper way around this usiong just a few amino acids and supps. Now I'm sleeping so much better, delta sleep is when the body makes it's own HGH.

    Sadly he was banned from this board for informing us of this, as was another board member who asked why the banning had happened.



    Love

    But have to agree Amino Acids ~ Essential Fatty Acids like Flaxseed, Borage, Olive Oil are a must for a healthy system.

    Will look into this product, thank you.

    Love Pat.
