HGH-191™ is a complete, extremely potent all natural growth hormone secretagogue. HGH-191™ is designed to maximize Growth Hormone (GH) production in order to promote the proper anabolic sleep environment for improved sleep patterns, faster recovery, increased lean muscle mass and decreased mid-section and body fat when used in conjunction with proper nutrition and a regular exercise program.
HGH 191™ is a supplement designed to support healthy GH secretion. GH, also known as Somatropin, is one of the most anabolic hormones and is considered by far the most powerful. GH is a peptide hormone group of 191 amino acids linked together in a specific sequence and released naturally by the anterior pituitary gland in small pulses throughout the day.
The pituitary gland is an endocrine gland affecting all hormonal functions in the body. And yes, the most relevant hormone secreted by the pituitary gland to an athlete or fitness enthusiast is GH due to its role in recovery, lean muscle growth, energy levels and metabolism.
HGH 191™ is also rich in Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGF-1, IGF-2), which include Transforming Growth Factor (TGF-α, TGF-β), Epithelial Growth Factor, Epidermal Growth Factor, Fibroblast Growth Factor and Platelet Derived Growth Factor. Growth Factors are peptides that function as intracellular signaling molecules to turn on or turn off the production of specific proteins in the target cells.
The level of GH in humans remains high until growth is completed and then declines preciptitously. By the age of 30, many individuals produce only approximately 20% of their peak levels of growth hormone. Skin begins to sag and energy starts to slip away. As the aging process continues, the immune system also begins to decline. Aging individuals have greater difficulty fighting off colds and flu, bones thin, hair loss is experienced, and stamina and vigor decrease. HGH is the closest therapy we have to a fountain of youth. No other therapy has the impact on the aging body that HGH has. It is great for increasing lean muscle, improving recovery time, weight control, and recontouring the body with loss of belly fat, particularly in the mid-section area.
Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA): HGH-191™ contains the potent Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA). GABA is an amino acid that signals the pituitary to release GH. This is shown to significantly increase plasma growth hormone levels that can rival the effects of potent pharmaceutical compounds. Now for those familiar with the actions of GH and the complexity of the endocrine system (the endocrine system is governed by an intricate set of checks and balances called “negative feedback”. Somatostatin is the negative feedback constituent to Somatotropin (GH). When somatostatin is released it triggers the metabolization and destruction of GH. As with any negative feedback mechanism the more GH secreted by the pituitary the more somatostatin is secreted to stop it and trigger rapid break down), here’s the added benefit. HGH-191™ contains
- Growth factors from Colostrum: IGF-1 is a truncated form of IGF that is 10 times more potent than IGF-2 in stimulating hypertrophy and cell regeneration. It is present in bovine Colostrum. (International Journal of Cellular Biology, 1996)
- Growth hormone levels decline with age. This may contribute to the decrease in lean body mass and increase in fat mass that occurs with aging. Levels of IGF-1 were measured in elderly men both with growth hormone supplementation and without. Results confirmed that growth hormone levels correlated with lean body and less fat mass. (New England Journal of Medicine, 1990)
- Insulin inhibits the breakdown of protein in muscle, thereby increasing protein through the creation of new protein by combining the constituent parts through the use of energy. IGF-1, on the other hand, promotes muscle anabolism by stimulating protein synthesis. Even in the case of an abundance of available amino acids, insulin continues to promote muscle protein balance solely by inhibiting the digestion of muscle, while IGF-1 combined with plentiful amino acids enhances protein synthesis (Journal of Clinical Investigations, 1995)
- Colostrum and athletic performance: Because of its ability to increase stamina and endurance, the effects of bovine colostrum on athletic performance has been the subject of many studies. Supplementing with Colostrum in combination with exercise training was shown to increase bone and lean muscle mass in active men and women after a period of eight weeks. (Nutrition, 2001)
- Bovine Colostrum supplementation during training significantly increased peak anaerobic power (Journal of Sports Science, 2003)
- Bovine Colostrum helped make distance cyclists retain more energy following a bout of intensive training. Those cyclists using Colostrum performed at a higher level with fewer signs of fatigue during tests taken after their 5 days of intensive training (Journal of Sports Medicine, September, 2006)
- Skeletal muscle is able to repair itself through regeneration. However, an injured muscle often does not fully recover its strength because the process is hindered. IGF-1 can improve muscle healing and regenerations (Muscle and Nerve, 2003)
Arginine Pyroglutamate: A substance in which the amino acid arginine is molecularly bonded to a pyroglutamate molecule. Pyroglutamate is a naturally occurring amino acid found in vegetables, fruit, dairy products and meat. Arginine Pyroglutamate stimulates the natural release of growth hormone. If you are taking Arginine with the sole purpose of releasing GH, the best form would be Arginine Pyroglutamate which is specifically designed for this purpose and requires a much smaller dose as opposed to 10 to 30 grams of traditional L-Arginine.
Mucuna Pruriens (standardized to 98% L-Dopamine): HGH 191™ contains a very potent, herbal adaptogen, Mucuna Pruriens extract of L-Dopa, a metabolic active precursor of dopamine, available by prescription only in many countries. Dopamine works as one of the best natural GH releasers by stimulating the pituitary gland to increase its production. Not only does dopamine have a direct and dramatic impact on the secretion of GH but there is ample scientific evidence that GABA’s effect on GH is mediated by a dopaminergic mechanism. This means that GABA may need dopamine to be present and active to elicit its powerful GH stimulating effects. High levels throughout life of the body’s own natural GH (not hormones from the synthetic injections) is known as a major key for human longevity. Dopamine also increases other youth hormones such as testosterone (it must be mentioned that these increases are never throwing the endocrine system out of balance, merely improving levels which tend to decrease over time in the average person). These resulting increased levels of these hormones from the use of Mucuna Pruriens extract explains its association with increasing libido, fertility, lean muscle mass, reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles and body fat, increasing bone density and even boosting overall energy levels. Animal studies have shown powerful results such as a tenfold increase in mounting (intercourse) frequency by male rats! Also a decrease in post ejaculatory intervals have been observed, meaning that the animals being studied are more quickly able to return to “the task at hand” with less “down-time” between ejaculations.
L-Tyrosine: A naturally occurring, non-essential amino acid that is a key component to just about each and every protein that our body has. The role that L-Tyrosine plays in the production of cells and the way our glands work is vital. Probably the most important role L-Tyrosine is responsible for is the release of GH which triggers decreased body fat and increased lean muscle. L-Tyrosine also helps to support the correct neurotransmitters for optimal mood, mental focus and sex drive.
4-Amino-3-Phenylbutyric Acid: Better known as Phenibut or less commonly Fenibut or Phenybut, is a derivative of the naturally occurring inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid). 4-Amino- 3-Phenylbutyric Acid is known for its ability to alleviate symptoms of anxiousness and sleep difficulties.
L-Theanine: An amino acid derivative found almost exclusively in tea plants. Its effects are basically directed towards the human brain, controlling serotonin and dopamine levels by means of aiding in the formation of Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA), an inhibitory neurotransmitter. GABA regulates dopamine and serotonin (neurotransmitters known to be partly responsible for mood shifts) levels along with other neurotransmitters, the outcome of which as a whole relaxes a person’s mental and physical state. Research on human volunteers has demonstrated that L-Theanine creates a sense of relaxation in approximately 30-40 minutes after ingestion.
DMAE & Choline: DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) is an antioxidant and a precursor of the neurotransmitter Acetycholine and Choline. Acetycholine is responsible for feelings of well-being, relaxation and as a memory supporting substance that may help stabilize cell membranes. Cell membrane degradation has been proposed as one of the prime mechanisms of aging. However, DMAE has been suggested to cross the blood-brain barrier faster than Choline. It is the Choline inside cells that is converted to Phosphatidylcholine, used in the building and repair of cell membranes. By supplementing with DMAE, athletes may also notice shorter recovery times and improved athletic performance.
Citrus Bioflavonoid: Bioflavonoids are a group of substances that possess antioxidant activities which help fight poor health and aging. Flavonoids are a subset of a larger group of beneficial plant substances known as polyphenols. By helping the body and mind relax and reach the deepest part of the REM (rapid eye movement) cycle, providing a reduction of stress and anxiety to support a more anabolic environment for sleep, you can optimally benefit from the recuperative properties of sleep and proper GH secretion to a more energetic, muscular, lean and youthful physique.
SOD: Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is a potent anti-inflammatory and one of the most powerful naturally-occurring antioxidants in your body that may help to prevent cell destruction and oxidative stress, neutralize free radical damage, reduce inflammation, prevent the breakdown of collagen fibers to help protect your skin from visible signs of aging. In addition, a lack of SOD may cause the acceleration of muscle mass loss attributed to age. SOD has been given the nickname “the youth molecule”.
L-Alpha-Glycerylphosphorylcholine (GPC): GPC is a naturally occurring Phospholipid and Acetylcholine precursor and metabolite derived from soy lecithin. GPC is shown to enhance GH secretion and activate cholinergic transmission which promotes the development of more strength from work-outs and training programs. GPC is believed to work by inhibiting somatostatin, a brain chemical that signals the body to shut down GH release. By getting in the way of this inhibitory signal, GPC can promote the continued secretion and circulation of GH.
N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine: A natural hormone that’s naturally produced by the pineal gland. As we age, our body produces less and less. Perhaps one of the most common benefits of N-acetyl-5-methoxytryp – tamine is its use to promote healthy sleep patterns. People who suffer from insomnia due to work, travel or stress (physical or mental) can take N-acetyl-5-meth – oxytryptamine to induce and sustain lasting sleep and promote healthy sleeping patterns which can assist with proper muscle recovery. This effect occurs because of N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine ‘s sleep-inducing and sedative effects that work naturally with the body’s sleep needs and rhythm.
Huperzine-A: Shown to boost Acetycholine levels which, as mentioned above, are responsible for feelings of well-being, relaxation and as a memory supporting substance that may help stabilize cell membranes.
Is it necessary to take HGH-191™ on an empty stomach?
Yes! The recommendation for HGH-191™ is to be taken at least 2 hours after your last meal for optimal results. Any insulin or excess lipids in your blood steam will interfere with HGH-191™ and hinder maximum GH release. Your nighttime, sustained release protein shakes are far more effective at creating an anabolic/anti-catabolic environment when taken at least 2 hours before bedtime when used in conjunction with HGH-191™ as GH promotes anabolism and prevents catabolism while you sleep!
Does HGH-191™ contain any sugars or carbohydrates?
No! Since the presence of insulin inhibits the release of GH and your results, HGH 191™ is 100% sugar and carbohydrate free to avoid an insulin release.
Is HGH-191™ safe for long term use?
Yes! The recommendation for HGH-191™ is to take it for 5 nights “on” and 2 nights “off” to avoid the negative feedback loop involving IGF-1 as high blood levels of IGF-I can lead to decreased secretion of GH. By cycling HGH-191™ accordingly, you will ensure that you maximize the benefits with long term use as the longer you take HGH-191,™ the more pronounced the effects will be.
Who can benefit from HGH-191™?
Anyone who is looking for faster recovery, improved sleep, increased lean muscle and increased fat loss. HGH-191™ should only be used by healthy adults who are 18 years of age or older.
Who Should NOT use HGH-191™?
HGH-191™ should NOT be used by individuals who suffer from sleep apnea, narcolepsy or any other sleep disorder, mental illness including bipolar disorder, alcohol or drug dependency or by individuals who are currently taking prescription or over the counter medication including but not limited to opiates or opiate derivatives, sleep aids, other GABA supplements, MAO inhibitors, SSRI or any other anti-depressant, alcohol or recreational drugs.
When is the most effective time to take HGH-191™?
HGH-191™ should be taken 30 minutes prior to bed time on an empty stomach and only when you can commit to at least 7 hours of sleep.
Are there any side effects associated with HGH- 191™?
Some individuals may experience a tingling sensation as well as a “heavy” feeling accompanied by deeper breathing after consumption which is normal and usually subsides after 5-15 minutes. If you are not able to get at least 7 hours of sleep, some users may experience drowsiness upon wakening.
Can I take more than one serving before bed?
Yes. Some individuals with a bodyweight in excess of 200 pounds may benefit from one and a half servings prior to bed. However, this is not necessary for the majority as one serving should suffice. Do not exceed more than one and a half servings in a 24-hour period.
NOTE: This product does not contain HGH. It is designed to support healthy, natural production of HGH within the body. Never take HGH-191™ if there is a chance that you will be driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery or heavy equipment within 7-8 hours of consumption as your reflexes may be impaired.
