Various spray and/or nutritional HGH (Human Growth Hormone) product manufacturers, distributors, or resellers are now flooding the Internet with bulk-mail promotional advertisements. This Consumer Fraud Alert warns consumers on how to spot the misleading promotional methods that aim to legitimize bogus spray and nutritional HGH products.

The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M, Chicago IL; http://www.worldhealth.net), representing 17,500 physicians in 86 nations worldwide, has become aware that various spray and/or nutritional HGH product manufacturers, distributors, or resellers are now flooding the Internet with bulk-mail promotional advertisements that suggest that A4M and/or its president, Dr. Ronald Klatz, endorse their HGH spray or nutritional product. These statements are false and deceptive, and companies conducting these bulk-mail marketing campaigns may be guilty of misrepresentation and/or fraud. Neither A4M nor Dr. Klatz endorse any spray and/or nutritional HGH product.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH, GH) deficiency in adults is recognized by a cluster of cardinal clinical features, namely: increased weight and body fat mass; decreased lean body mass; decreased exercise capacity; decreased muscle mass and strength; reduced cardiac performance; reduced bone density and increased fracture rate; poor sleep; and impaired sense of well being. Because HGH sets the pace for all the other anti-aging hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, and melatonin, there has been an increasing interest in adult growth hormone replacement therapy (GHRT). Over the past decade-and-a-half, a wealth of peer review research in the medical literature demonstrates the positive benefits of injectable (pharmaceutical) HGH therapy in improving muscle strength and mobility, cognitive function, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, immune function, body composition, obesity and sarcopenia, fibromyalgia, Crohn's disease, other illnesses, and quality of life issues.

Only pharmaceutical-grade, physician-dispensed, injectable HGH is of benefit to patients with clinically defined GH deficiency disorders. There is a world of difference between physician-dispensed, prescription HGH and the concoctions offered by spray and nutritional HGH marketers. A4M alerts you to be wary of the misleading promotional methods that aim to legitimize bogus spray and nutritional HGH products.

Be mindful that the only scientifically validated, reliable method of human growth hormone replacement is prescribed, by injection, and administered by a qualified, trained physician. In contrast, over-the-counter homeopathic growth hormone secretagogues and oral sprays (purportedly boosting the release of growth hormone) and herbal growth hormone boosters (supposedly elevating HGH in the body), in the form of pills, powders, sublingual remedies, and dermal patches, purport to function as combination HGH stimulant and releasing compounds. These sprays and nutritional HGH products generally contain a combination of amino acids, other nutrients and in some cases, proprietary peptides purportedly aimed at enhancing the pituitary's ability to release HGH. There are no controlled and independently validated clinical studies that affirm that sprays and nutritional HGH products products are as efficacious as injectable (pharmaceutical) HGH in the treatment of aging-related diseases and disorders.

The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Inc. ("A4M") is a non-profit medical society dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on biomedical sciences, breaking technologies, and anti-aging issues. A4M believes that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human lifespan can be increased, and the quality of one's life enhanced as one grows chronologically older. A4M seeks to disseminate information concerning innovative science and research as well as treatment modalities designed to prolong the human lifespan. Anti-Aging Medicine is based on the scientific principles of responsible medical care consistent with those of other healthcare specialties. Although A4M seeks to disseminate information on many types of medical treatments, it does not promote or endorse any specific treatment nor does it sell or endorse any commercial product.
