Perhaps there is no buzzword in the health and anti aging industry having so many controversies around it as the HGH itself.
We all have been lured into all those fantastic product claims promising weight loss, better sex and overall health and what not. But are all the majority of those natural HGH products, “HGH releasers”,”Precursors” and “HGH Secretagogues” out there really the “fountains of youth” everyone is raving about?
Do they really work and if yes what products out there are actually worth your money ?
So, here we stand in the midst of all this “HGH and anti aging” confusion with never ending supply of Hgh supplements in the market:-
21st Century, Aeon 5000 HGH, Ageforce Continuous Sequence HGH Oral Spray, Hgh factor ,Hgh energizer, Androtropin Spray, Secratatropin, BioRenew Real HGH plus IGF-1, Kigtropin, Secretagogue gold/plus, Growth-FlexV, Humagro, Live Young Oral HGH, Now IGF-1 Spray and ProBLEN HGH
Comparing Top HGH Products – A thorough Analysis!
After analysis of around 60 different HGH brands in the market, there are some interesting findings.
Pills vs Sprays vs Sublingual liquid drops vs Powders vs Patch/gel
HGH products primarily come in 6 different categories – pills, sprays, sublingual liquid drops, powders, patch & gel. Below chart explains the number of different brands in each category, currently popular in the marketplace.
As the above Bar-graph shows, the greatest market-share and popularity seems to be with HGH pills. And there can be many reasons, because it’s the most popular & hassle-free way of consuming a supplement.
Also, HGH supplements in pills form have got the most press & publicity (like Serovital) and most popular among bodybuilders too. (Examples – Olympian Labs Dynamic HGH, HyperGH 14x, Natures Plus Ultra GHT, Purity Select HGH pills, Performix HGH etc. etc)
After pills, on second position, HGH Sprays seem quite popular. They are especially very appealing to those who believe in Homeopathy. Now, there are many people & medical experts bashing homeopathic medicine & supplements, but truth remains that even if the homeopathic theories fly in the face of science, people have got better with homeopathic treatments in real life, causing many experts to change their stance on homeopathy.
Sublingual drops and Powders seem to be holding 3rd & 4th position, leaving very few HGH supplements that come in the form of patches or gels.
Below chart explains, the percentage of total supplements, category-wise-
So, what are top rated HGH supplements for sale in the market?
Finding good HGH products requires the following insights:-
- Knowledge of individual ingredients in the product and how they work to enhance HGH production.
- There are 7 ingredients that are really good, top of the cream stuff, that have been proven to be most essential in enhancing HGH naturally. However, NOT all products in the market, have these. Besides, those who do have these ingredients might NOT have it in sufficient quantities to trigger a response from the body. Proprietary blends have become a marketing tactic to hide the exact quantities of ingredients used.
- An interesting aspect of HGH supplement industry is the fact that homeopathic HGH is still popular, even though FTC is considering requiring that all homeopathic products sold in the US come with a disclaimer on their packaging that there is NOT enough clinical evidence that they work.
- Since homeopathy defies rules of conventional medicine, it’s tough to recommend a homeopathic HGH supplement, however, just like in real-life, people are getting benefits from homeopathic medicine, a Homeopathic HGH may work for some people. Dr. Frank King explains the key to homeopathy’s great success is finding the right HGH formulas for each individual patient. We do have a recommendation though – currently, we recommend HGH.com’s 30000 nano spray as the best homeopathic HGH in the market. (contains not only true homeopathic HGH, but also combines the six most potent Growth Factors, and 8 proven amino acid releasers all into one oral spray! )
- Are these HGH products really tested clinically? (In my review of over 60 or so hgh products, I’ve found very few of them having completed successful clinical trials and actively backed by medical community.
- One of them is Genf20 Plus, which in my opinion is worth looking into. Then there are Serovtial, 21st century hgh, Problen HGH which have been clinically studied.
- Currently, I recommend Genf20 Plus as the best HGH for anti-aging, for both men and women. Women looking for hGH anti-aging supplements should look into Genf20 Plus. (clinically studied and recommended by Dr. Steven Lamm, of The View)
- Currently, HyperGH 14x is recommended as the best hGH spray supplement for bodybuilding & muscle growth. It has deer antler velvet, and comes with Alpha GPC spray. For homeopathic HGH spray for bodybuilding, check out HGH.com’s 30000 nano spray (it’s primarily targeted towards people looking for weight loss, and can be combined with their Somatropinne HGH for bodybuilding).
- Is the product really effective or over-hyped? There are certain reasons one feels that products like this one are hyped. Then there are products like Somaderm, which got cult like following and very actively promoted by those who joined their MLM program. But, then again, as said earlier, Homeopathic HGH still remains a mystery, and there can be unexplained/unidentified reasons why Somaderm gel works, if it does. However, there are alternate, more affordable Homeopathic HGH alternatives to Somaderm like HGH.com’s 30000 nano spray. (contains not only true homeopathic HGH, but also combines the six most potent Growth Factors, and 8 proven amino acid releasers all into one oral spray! )
- Analyzing real consumer reviews and identifying fake reviews on e-commerce websites is also crucial in finding out the best products.
- It’s a good idea to get full information on potential side effects of any of the below supplements. Each supplement has its own pros & cons and potential side effects depending on what ingredients it uses. Specifically make sure, you are NOT allergic to any of the ingredients mentioned.

|RANK||Product Name||Product Type||Full Review||Review|
|1||Genf20 Plus||Pills||Read review||The only HGH supplement that enhances growth hormone production via 7 mechanisms. Contains Deer antler velvet and anti-somatostatin compounds. Based on our research and analysis, we believe that GenF20 Plus has the potential to increase your HGH levels. However, as the studies we read included subjects ranging in age and weight, you have to keep in mind that your results may vary from what the supplement claims on its site and what the research shows. Having said that, if you are in the market for an HGH based anti-aging supplement, we recommend this as the no. 1 supplement in this category because of its high quality ingredients, clinical study done on it, and endorsement from medical community.|
|2||HyperGH 14X||Pills||FEATURES 15 POTENT HGH PRECURSORS, WITH 4,040 MG TOTAL PER DAY! In our opinion, HyperGH 14x has the highest quality of HGH boosting potential to increase your HGH levels. This is not a here today, gone tomorrow company out to make a fast buck. They’re the real deal, however you have to keep in mind that your results may vary from what the supplement claims on its site and what the research shows. Having said that, if you are in the market for an HGH based bodybuilding supplement or any legal steroid, we recommend this as the no. 1 supplement in this category for bodybuilding because of its high quality ingredients, clinical study done on it, and endorsement from bodybuilding community.|
|3||MHP Secretagogue-Gold HGH||Pills||Powerful supplement that contains all the different kinds of ingredients for enhancing HGH comprehensively. Don't be concerned by lesser number of reviews on e-commerce websites. This one is the real deal.|
|4||Source Naturals HGH Surge||Pills||One of the rare supplements to contain "Huperzine A" that is a potent anti-somatostatin compound. Overall, a very balance mix of amino acids and other ingredients to enhance HGH levels naturally.|
|5||Olympian Labs Dynamic HGH||Pills||Like Genf20 Plus, it also contains deer antler velvet and dopamine enhancing compounds like Mucuna Pruriens, along with regular amino acids. Good positive reviews on ecommerce sites like iherb.com and bodybuilding.com, although the product is relatively new to the market.|
|6||High Energy Labs HGH Complete||Pills||One of the most comprehensive ingredient profile, although the product doesn't contain Deer antler velvet. Hgh Complete™ with 7-Keto® & Aminotropin™ is one of the best Hgh and Ifg-1 products available. Like HyperGH 14x, it also acts as a mild Testosterone booster along with HGH enhancer. A scientifically developed precursor and releaser formula that is designed to increase your body's own growth levels naturally, increase energy levels, increase libido, help reverse the effects of aging and increase performance as well as maximize recovery and restoration.|
|7||Ageless Foundation UltraMAX GOLD||Pills||Sufficient quantities of amino acids + GABA, along with anti-somatostatin compound Alpha GPC and Acetyl-L-Carnitine makes it among the top 10 HGH supplements in the market. The product may improve physical performance and well-being, and supports a broad range of health benefits.|
|8||Natures Plus Ultra GHT Male||Pills||Once again, a good hgh bodybuilding supplement with solid ingredients profile that also acts as natural testosterone booster. But, it lags behind HyperGH 14x as a HGH booster, as it doesn't contain anti-somatostatin compounds like cholinergic supplements and then some.|
|9||Performix Super male T + HGH||Pills||Another HGH cum Testosterone booster, ideal for those into bodybuilding. The product has a diverse ingredient profile, although misses out on some like deer antler velvet. Moreover, the product is more expansive than other products in the same league (almost double priced) and the ingredients seem somewhat underdosed.|
|10||Natures Plus GH Male||Pills||Another product from Nature's Plus that focuses primarily on HGH. It has some antioxidants too like resveratrol, and overall seems an excellent anti-aging supplement. We'd have liked it more if it contained GABA.|
|11||Nutraceutics Pro HGH Symbiotropin||Pills||The product has a good mix of amino acids, dopamine enhancers and one anti-somatostatin compound Alpha GPC, making it through to the top 10 HGH supplements in the market.|
|12||HGF MAX||Pills||Like Genf20Plus, this product too contains all sets of ingredients require to enhance HGH via several pathways/mechanisms, although the ingredients seem underdosed for the price. That's why it ranks lower.|
|13||MHP Secretagogue-One HGH||Powder||Another good product by MHP that contains sufficient quantities of amino acids and growth factors compounds, although missing on other kinds of HGH boosting ingredients.|
|14||Pure Solutions Pure Factors Extreme Pro IGF 350||Drops||Pro IGF 350 contains various different growth factors(variants of IGF-1) and claims to be specifically designed for those looking for the competitive edge against the competition. The growth factors in Pro IGF 350 provide performance enhancement benefits to any type of level of athlete. The product has good reviews but we little skeptical because it is basically based on single-line of ingredients ie. growth factors. A good product must have diverse ingredients to influence HGH production via multiple mechanisms.
All growth factors found in Pro IGF 350 are 100% naturally derived. There are no illegal or synthetic compounds found in this performance enhancer.
|15||Pure Solutions Pure IGF||Drops||Pure IGF™ is basically a single-ingredient supplement ie. deer antler velvet extract that claims to combat aging at the cellular level. Growth Factors in Pure IGF are derived from the naturally balanced proteins found in Velvet Antler Extract. It misses out on all other kinds of ingredients required to work in synergy with the growth factors.|
|16||Nature's Youth HGH (RSF Amino Acid Booster)||Powder||The product only has amino acids including GABA that helps with deep sleep and cooling/warming mechanism to enhance HGH levels. Overall, a mediocre HGH supplement.|
|17||Serovtital-HGH Liquid concentrate||Drops||Liquid version of the original popular Serovital-hgh that is fat absorbing.|
|18||Serovital-HGH||Pills||One of the most popular HGH anti-aging supplements the study on which was showcased on Dr. OZ show, although he didn't recommend it by name. Serovital is based on a PATENTED AMINO RENEWAL COMPLEX – SeroVital is backed by 4 clinical trials and protected by 15 U.S. and international patents, but what we see is just another amino acids hgh supplement.|
|19||HGH Pill 30,000 Nanos by HGH.com||Pills||Purity Select HGH 30000 nano pill has good variety of ingredients, but amino acids seem under-dosed. Their HGF MAX seems a better product.|
|20||HGH Activator by Dee Cee Laboratories||Pills||A good HGH product based on amino acids and a choline supplement. Amino acids are dosed sufficiently.|
|21||Optim Metabolic hgh 8x||Pills||Good dosing of amino acids & GABA, but lacks other crucial ingredients like choline supplements or dopamine enhancers etc.|
|22||Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals Somatomax||Pills||Good dosing of amino acids, GABA, & Mucuna pruriens extract, but doesn't contain anti-somatostatin compounds like choline supplements.|
|23||Basic Research Growth Factor-9 Complex Hormone Antecedent||Pills||The bodybuilding/sports performance HGH supplement based on Serovital ingredients. Same product, different marketing. Overall, not a great hgh booster for muscles.|
|24||Thrive hGH||Pills||Thrive-hGH has the same patented formula that is found in Serovital or Growth Factor 9. The retail price seems to be little on the higher side as compared to the other 2 products unless you sign up for an autoship program.|
|25||Maximum International Max HGH||Pills||A potent HGH precursor with lots of amino acids and growth factors containing compounds and also has GABA. But, other kinds of ingredients are missing.|
|26||Youngevity HGH youth complex||Pills||Basically an amino-acids HGH supplement, but the ingredients seem under-dosed.|
|27||Vitamass HGH||Pills||A very simple combination of amino acids and GABA. Unfortunately, ingredients are under-dosed for the price.|
|28||Vigor Labs RAW HGH||Pills||A simple combination of dopamine enhancers, antioxidants and GABA, with no amino acids in the picture.|
|29||AI SPORTS NUTRITION HGH pro||Pills||A combination of Alpha GPC and GABA and with antioxidants. It works as a great sleep aid, but lacks in other important ingredients, although it also contains Shilajit extract, which is good for sexual health.|
|30||Growth Factor Plus by HGH.com||Pills||Another supplement from HGH.com that is targeted towards younger people looking for height increase via enhancing HGH. Ingredients seem underdosed for anti-aging purpose but might be good enough for it's target market.|
|31||HGH Complex by Vitabase||Pills||A simple combination of underdosed amino acids and growth factors containing colostrum.|
|32||Somatropinne HgH||Pills||Somatropinne HGH Just one amino acids, one dopamine enhancer and other potent sexual enhancement ingredients like Maca and Horny goat weed. It might be good as a sexual enhancer, not much as HGH enhancer.|
|33||Soma HGH 30000 nano spray||Spray||Probably the most popular HGH spray out there that has all the crucial ingredients required for HGH release. Soma Spray combines the six most potent Growth Factors, and 8 proven amino acid releasers all into one oral spray! Unfortunately, there is a lot of controversy regarding the functioning of "hgh sprays" and "homeopathic HGH", for example the dilution process. Due to these factors, we have to rank it much lower than what its popularity demands.|
|34||Crazy Bulk HGH X-2||Pills||Very underdosed ingredients- and besides it contains just one amino acid and one dopamine enhancer.|
|35||Always Young Renewal HGH Workout For Men||Spray||It contains real homeopathic HGH, IGF-1, Testosterone, growth factors along with amino acids and NADH. So, ideally this HGH spray should be ranking much higher on our list, but it's NOT - the ingredients are highly diluted because of the way homeopathic products are designed and there is lot of controversy over functioning of homeopathic HGH.|
|36||DaVinci Labs Cocoa HGH||Powder||Amino acids supplement with cocoa flavor but way overpriced.|
|37||GHR1000||Pills||A simple amino acids supplement with GABA and colostrum, that is way overpriced and the ingredients are underdosed too.|
|38||LA Nutrition Pro GHR||Pills||Another simple amino acids supplement WITHOUT GABA but WITH colostrum, and the ingredients are underdosed.|
|39||Beverly International GH Factor||Pills||Another amino acids supplement with only two amino acids but in good enough quantities.|
|40||Elemental Nutrition HGH||Powder||This so called HGH supplement has only two amino acids - L Arginine and L-Lysine and is way overpriced. The dosing of amino acids is good though, so it seems to be more of a protein supplement.|
|41||Goliath Labs Humoloid HGH Spray||Spray||This hgh spray contains Humoloid Liquid proprietary blend of 100,000 ng that have almost all ingredients required for HGH boosting via multiple mechanisms and some for Testosterone boosting. But, since this is a homeopathic hgh spray with relatively lesser number of user reviews, we can't recommend it much higher.|
|42||Always Young Renewal Hgh Spray||Spray||Real homeopathic HGH based spray with growth factors from Pituitaria Glandula & Colostrum.|
|43||TimeFIGHTERS® HGH Anti-Aging Drink Mix||Powder||An underdosed amino acids supplement with GABA that is marketed as an anti-aging supplement.|
|44||HGH Vitality from Deseret Biologicals (Desbio)||Drops||A real homeopathic HGH drops supplement that also contains real homeopathic Testosterone, estradiol, L Dopa, melatonin and growth factors from several sources. The ingredients look good on paper but all have been diluted to the extreme because of the way homeopathic hgh supplements have to be.|
|45||Life-flo Healthcare IGF-1 plus||Spray||This liposome sublinual vital spray formula from Life-Flo Health Care combines the power of potent herbs, IGF-1, IGF-2 and essential amino acids, but the ingredients are highly diluted and the working of homeopathic sprays is questionable.|
|46||Problen HGH Plus IGF1 & IGF2||Spray||This spray contains real homeopathic HGH along with Alpha GPC and several growth factors.|
|47||Hgh Dopa 400 by Americas Finest||Pills||A single ingredient based HGH supplement containing L-Dopa that enhances dopamine supporting healthy mood and mental alertness as well as stimulating secretion of Human Growth Hormone. Unfortunately, a good HGH supplement requires more sophistication.|
|48||Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum Antler Velvet||Pills||Another single ingredient based HGH supplement containing Deer Antler Velvet that has several growth factors stimulating secretion of Human Growth Hormone. Unfortunately, a good HGH supplement requires more sophistication.|
|49||Liddell HGH spray, Vital Age Defiance||Spray||Another HGH spray with real homeopathic hgh and pituitaria glandula growth factor.|
|50||DaVinci Laboratories Maxi-HGH||Powder||A simple amino acids based HGH supplement that claims to combine the proper quantities and ratios of L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Lysine and Glycine. Unfortunately, it seems to be more as a protein supplement, and also the price is far more expensive than other HGH products in the same league, not to mention it misses out on some crucial ingredients.|
|51||NewuLife Somaderm HGH Gel||Gel||NewULife HGH transdermal gel is a homeopathic product promoted through an MLM scheme and an overwhelming number of positive reviews floating around on the internet and video sharing websites like Youtube, are in fact, posted by the sellers/multi-level marketers of NewuLife. Under-dosed ingredients, and unjustified expansive price, NOT to mention no renowned homeopathic expert supports any homeopathic HGH on the market. (Some experts even claim there is nothing “homeopathic” about them!)|
|52||ISOTROPIN® TONE Oral Spray (Isotropin® HGH PRO 6X)||Spray||Another spray product with real Somatotrophin (HGH), amino acids and growth factors. There are not many user reviews out there.|
|53||Herbal Nutrition Muscle Force Extreme||Spray||This non-homeopathic HGH spray claims to be more Bio-available than pills/capsules and has 400mg Proprietary Growth Formula, Containing L-Arginine, Bulgarian Tribulus & Niacin. Dosing is good as compared to other similar products but way less than supplements in pills/capsules form, although the user reviews seem good.|
|54||Pride Nutrition G-Max Strength & Endurance Formula||Drops||A non-homeopathic liquid HGH drops supplement but with very underdosed quantity of amino acids and Tribulus extract. (At 30 MG only!)|
|55||Vitamass Homeopathic HGH Patch||Patch||A homeopathic HGH 9990 ng patch that has Transdermal Homeopathic Somatotrophin (HGH) at 3C/30C dilution. NOT very impressive compared to other HGH sprays.|
|56||Life Choice HGH+ Homeopathic||Drops||Another homeopathic supplement that contains growth factors BUT not real HGH. The product is from a company called Life Choice founded by a naturopathic doctor Eldon Dahl.|
|57||Athletic Edge HGH + Igf-1 by AnuMed International||Drops||A liquid HGH drops supplement called Athletic Edge eHGH Booster Liquid Drops that contains a proprietary blend. This is a homeopathic product from a company Anumed in which Dr. Rene Ryba MD. has played an important role as Director of R&D. After years of deep studies of the options offered by the alternative approach Dr. Rene found his passion in the scientific arm of Naturopathic Medicine which he views as a great “synergistic bridge”, a missing link in the contemporary medical care.|
|58||Maximum Result H7 Complex||Spray||H7 Complex is an homeopathic HGH spray and its natural formula does not contain any prescription HGH or Human Growth Hormone. H7 Complex has natural herbal ingredients and claims to help those seeking anti-aging benefits, increased muscle tone & fat loss, better sleep & memory function, and increased energy & sex drive. We think there are better HGH sprays with more comprehensive ingredients.|
|59||Swanson Rejuv HGH Vitality Renewal Formula||Drops||This liquid HGH drops supplement contains amino acids, GABA along with Alpha GPC and Mucuna pruriens (natural L-Dopa). This product is NOT homeopathic yet the ingredients are extremely low dosed. (in micrograms). So, this is a neither here or there supplement as it's NOT based on homeopathy and the quantities of ingredients are a fraction of what other amino acids based HGH supplements are offering.|
The truth about HGH – Is it any good?
Now, HGH IS truly an amazing substance that has been shown to have numerous, clinically proven benefits. Various studies have actually confirmed the facts. In fact, studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine prove that HGH can:
- Decrease Bodyfat
- Increase Muscle Tone
- Boost your Energy, Strength, and Endurance
- Reduce Wrinkles and Create Tighter, Smoother Skin
- Help sound healthy sleep
- Improve Sex Drive and Performance
- Improve Immune and Heart Function,
- Bone Density, Healing Time and Cholesterol
- Improve Brain Function, Memory and Mental Focus
HGH is produced by the pituitary gland in the center of the brain. Everyone naturally has human growth hormone in their body from birth.
During adolescence, when we are at an optimal youthful condition, production of HGH is high. However, your HGH levels peak somewhere between the ages of 21 and 30 and then aggressively decline at the alarming rate of 14% per decade.
Research has shown that virtually every adult is HGH deficient. By the age of 40 you may already have “elderly” levels of HGH production, down as much as 40% of youthful levels of human growth hormone.
So, this hormone also called “Human Growth Hormone” has lots of benefits.
Without going into more technical informative jargon, let’s find out what hgh products in the market have to offer.
What Are HGH Secretagogues (supplements) and Natural Releasers?
“HGH secretagogues” and “HGH releasers” are terms that you will come across very often in
your HGH research, because most HGH products are considered to be secretagogues.
A secretagogue, by simple definition, is any substance that can cause another substance to become secreted. Acting on the human body, the HGH secretagogues can cause release of HGH (human growth hormone) from the “anterior pituitary gland”.
As I said earlier, the pituitary gland is the one responsible for the generation of growth hormone in the human body.
So, an effective HGH releaser will NOT artificially inflate your HGH levels from outside,(like injections do) because it is not the growth hormone itself,
it is only a precursor to the growth hormone that causes the pituitary gland to produce its own growth hormone NATURALLY.
This strategy is much safer for the body as a whole than what injections have to offer.
HGH precursors (also known as HGH releasers) are the safest, easiest and effective
way to stimulate the pituitary gland to generate the release of more growth hormone
and feel its benefits throughout the human body.
This leads to the question, which supplements truly work for maximum stimulation of the pituitary gland?
Natural supplements that have been scientifically proven to help stimulate the release of the growth hormones in the human body are GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), deer antler velvet, Mucuna Pruriens and some other herbs or amino acids like L-Aginine, L-Lysine etc.
The questions remain:-
1). What products out there really contain the substances that can enhance hGH production in the body by the pituitary gland?
2). Do these products contain the ingredients in “good enough” amounts so as to produce desired positive effects?
3). What is the successful mechanism of transferring these nutrients to the body – the sprays or the pills?
4). Can anyone of these so called hgh products contain real HGH?
5). How long will it take to see benefits in overall health, fitness and energy levels after taking these products?
6). Are these products really tested clinically?
(In my review of over 60 or so hgh products, I’ve found very few hgh products having completed successful clinical trials and actively backed by medical community.
One of them is Genf20 Plus, which in my opinion is worth looking into.
In fact, Genf20 Plus(for anti aging) and Hyper 14X(for bodybuilding) are the only supplements influencing HGH release in the body by 7 mechanisms because they contain the 7 diverse and necesssary ingredients. )
It was a 12 week study on Genf20 Plus.

HGH SCAMS, Unethical Marketing practices & Unexplained Mysteries
There are plenty of scams when it comes to HGH products, and it is important to be able to identify some of the more popular ones.
Companies that manufacture and sell HGH supplement products sometimes resort to shady business practices to make their product more alluring to consumers. The best way to avoid these SCAMS is to be informed! Some popular HGH SCAMS include:-
1. Low doses of effective ingredients in the product
When looking for an HGH releaser you’ll find dozens of pills and sprays claiming to contain the ingredients needed to increase your HGH levels and although you’ll find that they may contain some ingredients that have been scientifically proven to stimulate the production of HGH, they are in such a low dosage they do NOT actually work.
Unfortunately this is common practice in the anti aging supplement industry since manufacturers want to be able to say their product contains certain ingredients while at the same time keeping their manufacturing costs as low as possible.
That is why most HGH products do not work.
2. They create a hype of the included ingredients in their product.
For example, any hGH product containing amino acids like L-arginine, L-glutamine etc. is definitely good for anti aging and enhancing hGH but it will NEVER have a dramatic effect.
Studies done on the usage of amino acids to increase hGH were done on intravenous “injections” that were several times the doses you receive in pills.
So, the supplement manufacturers create a HYPE around their hGH supplement that it contains such and such amount of amino acids proven to increase hGH.
However, they leave out the fact that amino acids were used via injections to increase hGH and that too in ridiculously huge doses. Such huge doses when taken in oral pill form will produce some nasty side effects like nausea, upset stomach, dizziness etc.
So, these supplement manufacturers hit 2 stones with 1 bird by having lesser doses of amino acids in their product.
They make their product safe to consume and also raise their profit margins in the process. It is another story that the product might not be that effective.
The consumer does not really feel the HGH effect and if there is any effect, it’s mostly placebo effect.
Besides, the homeostasis system of the body ensures that the effect of these amino acids is minimized. After a surge in growth hormone after taking in these amino acids, the human body produces “somatostatin”, a hormone that signals the pituitary gland to stop producing more growth hormone and also instructs the intestines to stop absorption of amino acids.
That’s why the most effective product will target the HGH secretion by various mechanisms. Amino acids are just one mechanism.
Other ingredients like Phosphatidyl Choline are important too, which blocks the “somatostatin” hormone and helps increase the efficiency of amino acids and also helps in maintaining healthy brain cells. (Growth hormone is made in the brain).
So, avoid the hype and ensure that the product you chose really has effective ingredients that work via multiple pathways to increase HGH in a synergistic effect.
3. Creative/Inaccurate wording in advertising
Many companies will try to fool their consumers by using creative or inaccurate wording to confuse them into thinking their product is not only legitimate, but the best on the market.
For example, some companies have been known to advertise that their product contains a “huge” dose of 1,500 to 2,000 ng (Nanograms) of “real” HGH.
Without the knowledge that a nanogram is only equal to “one billionth of a gram”, a consumer might take the company’s word for it, and get cheated considering 2,000 nanograms is actually a whole bunch of nothing!
The use of the term “Real HGH” or “Somatotropin” or “Somatropin” should also be a red flag to any consumer, as any product which is NOT homeopathic and uses this term is almost guaranteed to be a SCAM. Somatotropin used to be collected from human cadavers and is associated with mad cow disease.
While Somatropin is synthetically produced in laboratories but still a prescription based product to sell. So, any otc product or product sold online without prescription can’t really contain these.
These types of companies prey on the fact that most consumers don’t know the correct quantity of a nanogram or that the product can’t contain “real hgh”, therefore making their products look legitimate and top notch.
Editor’s note:- Homeopathic HGH products are an exception to the above rule, as they contain real HGH, but it’s usually been diluted 30x. At that dilution level, FTC & FDA don’t have problems with such products, as real HGH is in almost negligible quantity, and such homeopathic products work based on a theory called Water Memory. Otherwise, real HGH is something that can only be acquired with prescription, usually after visiting an anti-aging/HRT clinic.
4. Homeopathic HGH remains a mysterious proposition
Some medical experts believe that companies who use the term to promote their products are giving homeopathy a bad name by calling their HGH supplement products “homeopathic”, and then the product does not deliver.
Many of those who market these HGH products actually include dosages of other “filler” or “fluff” ingredients, not unlike those that can be found in cheap vitamin supplements.
This betrayal by companies is what is giving homeopathy a bad name, and consumers need to be aware that it is just a marketing tactic when it comes to HGH and HGH supplements.
Besides according to the principles of homeopathy, a “homeopathic hgh will be a remedy for “too much” HGH in your system and will work to decrease the hgh levels, rather than increasing it- the way some vaccines work. Clearly these companies do not know what they’re doing!

As said earlier, homeopathy defies rules of conventional medicine, it’s tough to recommend a homeopathic HGH supplement, however, just like in real-life, people are getting benefits from homeopathic medicine, a Homeopathic HGH may work for some people. Dr. Frank King explains the key to homeopathy’s great success is finding the right HGH formulas for each individual patient.
Homeopathy is a highly individualized healing art. Results vary depending on the individual, and whether the correct formulas are being used to address unique underlining causes to the patient’s condition. If you are not receiving the desired results, consider other formulas to directly address other underlying causes.
Various biofeedback response tests help the doctor and discern which products a patient needs and does not need. These procedures also empower the doctor to know when to change doses, or stop and/or restart a product.
The key to homeopathy’s great success is finding the right formulas for each individual patient. – Dr. Frank King
Homeopathic HgH may have the potential to maximize the positive effects of HgH through a number of advancements.
The unique triple-potency process that broadens the positive therapeutic potential of HgH on the body seems most interesting. The lower potency (10X) works at the more superficial levels of function of our bodies, such as the skin and hair. The middle potency (30X) works more in the intermediate-level functions of our body, such as our glands and organs. The higher potency (100X) works more within the deeper functions of our body, such as the mental and emotional functions.
Formulas with additional ingredients, including HgH, maximize the anti-aging potentials homeopathy has to offer.
There are homeopathic products like Somaderm, which got cult like following and very actively promoted by those who joined their MLM program. But, then again, as said earlier, Homeopathic HGH still remains a mystery, and there can be unexplained/unidentified reasons why Somaderm gel works, if it does.
However, there are alternate, more affordable Homeopathic HGH alternatives to Somaderm like HGH.com’s 30000 nano spray. (contains not only true homeopathic HGH, but also combines the six most potent Growth Factors, and 8 proven amino acid releasers all into one oral spray! )
5.You Get What You Pay For
If you are looking for a quality HGH product, you are going to pay quality HGH prices. Due to the ingredients and technology that go into HGH supplements, a very inexpensive HGH supplement is most likely a SCAM.
Any natural HGH product is only as good as its ingredients and the research and manufacturing methods that have gone into making it.
The bottom line is that inferior ingredients will yield inferior results. Companies sacrifice research and quality ingredients to make a product that is cheaper and will sell more easily.
Consumers need not make the mistake and they need to make sure that they are putting only the most researched, top quality ingredients into the body, no matter what the cost.
6. HGH Oral Sprays
The oral sprays are of 3 kinds – Homeopathic HGH sprays (real HGH with typical 30 x dilution), non-Homeopathic HGH sprays, and Nutrtional sprays.
Homeopathic HGH sprays (real HGH with typical 30 x dilution) fall in the category of Homeopathic HGH. Currently we recommend HGH.com’s 30000 nano spray.
- Non-Homeopathic HGH sprays
Those non-Homeopathic HGH sprays that claim to have “real HGH” , well you can safely assume are “guaranteed scams”.
Regarding the oral sprays that claim to contain real hgh or Somatotrophin or ingestible Somatropin – here are 3 points to understand –
a). You should know that there is no scientific proof that these sprays work. Growth hormone according to studies does not have the capability of passing through the membranes of the mouth.
b). There is no way to make a spray out of the real pharmaceutical growth hormone. No scientific method or formulation exists by now.
c). Even if they could make it somehow, how can a company legally sell a drug (real hgh) without a prescription. You need a prescription to purchase it. Have you heard of a viagra spray, alli spray ? A homeopathic HGH spray that has like 10x or 30x dilution of real HGH, can be sold however.
“Real HGH” like viagra is an FDA approved and monitored drug that requires prescription.
So Exactly why men and women get caught in this kind of “oral spray” scam ?
Given that they think that they are acquiring real hgh and considering that it’s in spray form, it’s a lot less expensive than the injectable alternative.
3. The third category of oral sprays is “Nutritional hgh sprays” which contain natural hgh releasers– those that are supposed to contain hgh releasing ingredients like pills.
Nutritional hgh sprays – Such products claim that you can get all the ingredients, required vitamins and minerals for hgh release in few sprays. It’s doubtful though not completely overruled!
According to anti-aging experts, only few sprays can’t provide you with adequate amount of such ingredients to make any positive changes take place. If you want to take such ingredients it’s always better to take them in pills form and that again puts the sprays under disadvantage.
So, my advice would be to stay away from any oral HGH spray product. Till date I haven’t found an effective working oral spray product with the only exception of “The Oral Spray With Alpha GPC” that is NOT sold as a stand-alone spray product but comes as a part of “Genf20 Plus triple advantage system”
Alpha GPC has a lot of physical and cognitive benefits to the human body including the increased release of growth hormone.
Other ingredients in this spray are GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), Mucuna Pruriens (seed), Moomiyo Extract, Ornithine Alpha Ketoglutarate, L-Glutamine, L-Aginine, L-Lysine, L-Valine, L-Isoeucine, L-Trysince, and Glycine.
This spray product provides better absorption of the ingredients, which is also a USP of their entire “Genf20 Plus triple advantage system”since they use “Enteric Coating” in the pills as well to ensure that the key ingredients are protected from stomach acid and make it to the small intestine where maximum absorption occurs.
The downside of using this spray is that you’ll have to use it 6 times daily to see the benefits and that too along with the pills.
7. Hgh injections have got some serious side effects with them.
As you know they are synthetic substances and are also a lot expensive. Single injection can cost $25 or more so regular usage may involve expenditures of thousands of dollars per month.
These are prescription medications that are not available over-the-counter. Insurance companies don’t cover the cost of these drugs.
Although it’s not a scam but spending thousands for injecting synthetic substances in the body that might have whole lot of issues tied with them is not a feasible option for many people looking to benefit from HGH.
HGH injections are known for potential side effects.
You have to understand that you are exposing yourself to several health risks if you decide to go through this path.
Besides the market is now quite saturated with “overnight” anti aging experts, endocrinologists who see a lucrative opportunity in marketing “HGH therapy” to people who want to be young again and a lot of these experts don’t have much experience and really don’t know the safest strategy to use HGH injections effectively.
However, if you chose this path of hormone injections therapy, there is one anti aging expert that I can safely recommend and that is Dr. John Crissler
If you want to build muscles quickly, using human growth hormone injections may sound appealing to you because they can certainly make your workouts more efficient. But if you are wary about the risks associated with HGH injections, you can try HGH supplements or releasers instead.
And it’s NOT a good idea to buy cheap HGH injections from the black market. There are many companies selling fake cheap HGH injections.
What HGH Product is Right for You? What are the successful methods of delivery?
Supplementing the human body with HGH (human growth hormones) offers exciting and successful possibilities, especially in the world of anti-aging and bodybuilding.
Most consumers in the market for HGH and HGH supplements are looking to reduce and rewind the effects of aging.
Recent years have given us new technology when it comes to receiving HGH precursors and supplements. In the past, human growth hormone was only available by injections but that is no longer true.
There has been much advancement in the delivery systems of HGH and HGH releasers that make them more accessible. Common systems of delivery when it comes to HGH and HGH precursors currently include pills and capsules that contain HGH secretagogues, and oral or sub-lingual sprays.
While the efficiency of nutritional sprays is still doubted by many anti aging experts, the latest research and standards in “pills manufacturing” have raised the bar to produce better quality products and those that are absorbed successfully by the human body for better results.
The leaps and bounds taken in technology, including the current technique of amino acid engineering, have made the slashing of prices for HGH supplements like GenF20 Plus TM Triple-Advantage System a reality in recent years.
This system consists of HGH releaser pills, and a spray and also uses “Enteric Coating” in the pills to ensure that the key ingredients are protected from stomach acid and make it to the small intestine where maximum absorption occurs.
This product contains all the necessary ingredients to enhance HGH naturally in synergy.
How long to see results with HGH supplementation?
The study done on Genf20 Plus took 12 weeks to gauge the positive effects.
Can a HGH pill make me young again?
Do you reckon that hgh products mentioned above could shave twenty years off your age?
Apparently that is not realistic. In fact, no product on earth right now can quite accomplish that.
However, if you follow a good anti aging lifestyle in combination with a good quality product, it can really work wonders in making you feel and look good and young again.
That would be the best strategy to ensure that a growth hormone booster could empower you to exist and work like you did when you had youthful levels of HGH, and will benefit to make a younger, stronger you.
Is aging inescapable?
For quite some time now, human beings have been believing aging is irreversible. We were accustomed to recognize that ageing was certain and nothing might prevent someone’s metabolism from moderating after the age of thirty, we could not avoid wrinkles and avoid signs of aging on skin and body.
Regardless of what men and women did to stop it, or even to ease it off, nothing seemed to prevent the determined walk of age. Even experts and fitness gurus, could not avoid aging.
Until the impact of HGH aging was well a disease whose cure was not known.
Notwithstanding, now experts and celebrities like Sylvester Stallone know for sure HGH can goad an expansion in lean muscle and minimize body fat, evolving an individual to look and feel more youthful.
According to the book, “Grow Young with HGH” by Ronald Klatz :- “If aging is a disease, then hgh might well be the cure!”

Note:- The study on Genf20 Plus did not measure for a direct increase in HGH. There was a 28% increase in IGF-1, not in HGH. (IGF-1 rises when HGH rises, and the test looked for IGF-1, not directly for HGH.)
