The Fountain of Youth has been sought after since the beginning of recorded history. Now in the 21st Century, has that time come? HGH (Human Growth Hormone) is being tossed about as the long sought after Fountain of Youth, the greatest thing to come along since the invention of the wheel. HGH seems to be talked about as the Medical Cure and the Fountain of Youth on every radio station, in every newspaper and in every magazine you can find.
So just what is this HGH? Human Growth Hormone is a molecule consisting of 191 amino acids arranged in a special way that is secreted by the pituitary gland, which is located at the base of the brain. The pituitary glandÂs function is to produce and then release HGH into the blood stream where it flows to the major organs of the body. One of these major organs is the liver. When HGH flows into the liver, the liver produces and releases IGF1 (Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1). Once released IGF1 attaches to the cells and initiates repair.
Since aging is the bodyÂs inability to repair cells, HGH becomes the most important factor in just how fast the human body ages. For instance a 25 year old would be at the peak of his or her HGH level. After that the HGH level starts to drop off significantly until our cells do not have the ability to repair themselves anymore. The faster HGH falls, the faster we age. Interestingly, the pituitary gland still produces HGH, it just holds on to it, not releasing it. Given the track record of medical science, extending life is probably a matter of when, not if, said Dr. Donald Louria, a futurist who teaches at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
Dr. Daniel Rudman, in 1985 speculated that there was a vital link between aging and HGH. He published his findings in the renowned New England Journal of Medicine. In 1990 Dr. Rudman showed, for the first time in a science paper, also published in the New England Journal of Medicine, that raising HGH levels not only slows but actually reverses many of the effects of aging. Dr. Edmund Chen and Dr. L. Cass Terry, from the Palm Springs Life Extension Institute and the University of Wisconsin studied 202 patients using HGH injections between 1994-1996 and to date have studied thousands more with staggering results.

Many snake oil companies are advertising creams, sprays and drinks saying HGH is in them, thus claiming The Miracle Cure of all time. ÂThe big joke is on the American peopleÂ, according to Rena Davis, an internationally known biochemist, because HGH is such a large molecule that it cannot be absorbed into the body with creams or sprays. If you drink it, the stomach breaks the HGH molecule into simple amino acids making it useless. There are only two ways you can get HGH. One is to inject it using outside HGH sources, the other is to use your own. You can also review this at http://www.reverse-aging.org. Click on Rena Davis.
However, Dr. Isadori, Dr. Lo Monico and Dr. Cappa of the University of Rome clearly demonstrated that oral forms of specific amino acids could, in fact, trigger HGH releases from the pituitary gland. Donald M. McLeod M.D. and Philip A White M.D. of Soma Life International Inc. have patented a scientific formulated amino acid that is taken orally that stimulates the pituitary gland, which then releases your very own HGH right into your blood stream.
It would appear that whether HGH is "Snake Oil" "Miracle Cure" or ÂThe Fountain of YouthÂ depends on how it is delivered.
