Capros® Indian Gooseberry Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Capros® Amla Fruit Extract

Capros® is a multi-patented, standardized extract of the Emblica officinalis (Phyllanthus emblica) plant, which is more commonly known as Indian gooseberry or amla. Indian gooseberry extract is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine and is associated with numerous benefits, from supporting cardiovascular health to treating diseases. It is also believed to have anti-aging properties, which is why Capros amla extract is used in health, beauty and skincare supplements such as Skin Perfect Anti-Aging With Collagen and Skin Perfect Hair, Skin and Nails.

Functions of Indian Gooseberry

The chemical constituents of amla fruit extract include several vitamins (ascorbic acid, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin), tannins (Emblican A and Emblican B), gallic acid, diterpenes, triterpene lupeol, flavonoids and polyphenols. These active constituents appear to contribute to the antioxidant activity, antidiabetic and antitumor properties, and cardioprotective effects of Indian gooseberry extract.

Sources of Indian Gooseberry Extract

Amla extract is derived from the Emblica officinalis (or Phyllanthus emblica) plant, which is native to India and neighboring areas within Asia. While all parts of the plant may be used in traditional medicine, the Indian gooseberry extract found in dietary supplements is often derived from amla fruit.

Indian Gooseberry Benefits and Uses

The primary uses of Indian gooseberry are related to its antioxidant properties, meaning that it has the ability to protect cells from oxidation damage. This antioxidant effect contributes to other amla benefits, including Capros’ substantiated anti-aging, athletic performance and cardiovascular health claims. By inhibiting the oxidation reaction and preserving healthy cell function, Capros standardized amla extract has the potential to protect against the visible signs of aging, neutralize sweat-induced oxidative effects caused by the release of copper and iron, and maintain normal cardiovascular function.

Studies have also suggested that Indian gooseberry benefits may apply to the treatment of various medical conditions, such as diabetes, jaundice, headaches, inflammation, chronic ulcers and hyperlipidemia.

Side Effects of Indian Gooseberry and Potential Interactions

Supplements containing Indian gooseberry appear to be safe for most adults, and there are currently no known side effects of amla extract. NutraGenesis notes that Capros Indian gooseberry extract is GRAS-affirmed, which means it is “generally recognized as safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

No interactions have been reported between amla extract and other medications; however, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center cautions that the strong antioxidant effects of Indian gooseberry extract may interfere with chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Visit WebMD for the latest findings concerning amla extract side effects and interactions. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking supplements containing Capros or Indian gooseberry extract.

Amla Extract Research and Studies

A number of studies have been conducted concerning Indian gooseberry extract and its antioxidant effects. In the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers reported that Phyllanthus emblica extracts “have manifested protective effects on organs/tissues from damages induced by chemicals, stresses and aging in animal models” and “have potential in inhibiting the growth of cancer cells and reducing DNA damage induced by chemicals and radiation.”

An article in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine highlighted the anti-aging and skin-enhancing properties of amla extract. These claims have been corroborated by other research, including a study reported in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, which found that amla fruit extract “effectively inhibits UVB-induced photo-aging in human skin fibroblast.” A recent article published in Pharmacognosy Research highlighted the beneficial effects of Indian gooseberry extract in relation to cardiovascular health, while studies cited in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine and Phytotherapy Research demonstrated its effectiveness as an anti-inflammatory agent. For additional amla extract research findings, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

HGH.com and Skin Perfect Supplements With Capros Indian Gooseberry Extract

Consumers seeking anti-aging supplements with beneficial antioxidant effects may wish to consider products featuring Indian gooseberry extract. Capros standardized amla extract is featured in several health, beauty and skincare supplements from HGH.com’s sister company, Skin Perfect:

Skin Perfect Anti-Aging With Collagen – Capros amla fruit extract is featured among the proprietary blend of ingredients in Skin Perfect’s signature anti-aging supplement. Anti-Aging With Collagen harnesses the antioxidant properties of Indian gooseberry to help combat the visible signs of aging and strengthen the body’s resistance to negative stress.

Skin Perfect Hair, Skin and Nails – Featuring 30 active ingredients, this Skin Perfect supplement is formulated to improve the condition and appearance of hair, skin and nails. By leveraging the antioxidant activity of Capros amla extract, these powerful capsules are intended protect against cell and tissue damage caused by the sun’s rays, environmental factors and free radicals.

Endurance Workout Training Videos and Tips

Endurance Workouts to Increase Your Energy and Stamina

Do you participate in an endurance sport or just want to improve your staying power? By adding high-intensity interval training, such as endurance workouts, to your routine, you can increase stamina, build muscle and burn fat. As you use all of your body's major muscles simultaneously, you boost your metabolism, which fuels weight loss. To reach your optimal level of performance, you need to make sure to maintain proper hydration, keep up your protein intake, improve your warm ups, increase strength training and get the right supplementation.

We want to see you go the distance, so we explored all of the incredible information out there to find some great ways to help you improve your aerobic and anaerobic endurance. While aerobic exercises improve your body's oxygen consumption and enlist slow-twitch muscles to be active for sustained periods of time, anaerobic exercises do not require oxygen to generate force and use fast-twitch muscles for short periods of time. Ideally every athlete wants a good balance of aerobic and anaerobic endurance. To give you the motivation you need to go faster and farther than ever before, we put together a few videos along with a Pinterest board dedicated to endurance workouts

Do HGH Releasers Really Work for Bodybuilders and Athletes?

A Candid Conversation About HGH Releasers and Other Natural Bodybuilding Supplements

By Dan Smith of HGH.com

Growth hormones have always been a hot – and often controversial – topic in the bodybuilding and sports worlds. As the public voice of HGH.com and Purity Select, I’ve frequently addressed the benefits of HGH releasers and bodybuilding supplements through our blog posts, HGH community, social media platforms, sponsored events and news releases. But there’s nothing quite as inspiring as discussing the subject face-to-face with fellow bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts, as I was reminded during a recent visit to my local gym.

A few days ago, while I was in the middle of my leg workout routine, a guy at the weight machine next to me struck up a conversation. He told me that he used to lift in high school, and was slowly getting back into it again after a lengthy hiatus – and was finding it much more challenging than he remembered. When he noticed my HGH.com shirt, he asked, “Do you use HGH? Does it really work?”

I told him that I’ve been using natural HGH supplements for years; and in a nod to an old TV commercial, I said, “Not only do I run HGH.com, I’m also a client.” He got the reference, and we both laughed. Then I asked him, “You know that HGH and testosterone levels naturally decrease over time, right?” He replied, “Sure, that’s common knowledge. But…isn’t HGH illegal without a prescription?”

This is a question I’ve often been asked by those who are new to HGH; it seems that despite the steadily growing popularity of HGH supplements, many myths and misconceptions still remain. So I went on to explain the differences between prescription-only synthetic HGH injections and over-the-counter natural health supplements that contain HGH releasers. As I saw the awareness and interest dawn in my fellow weightlifter’s eyes, it occurred to me that many others have the same questions – and that I could play a role in educating the public on this topic.

In light of that goal, HGH.com recently issued a news release to the national media spotlighting how legal, non-synthetic growth hormone supplements provide an over-the-counter alternative to HGH injections. And I decided to write this blog post to address the questions I was asked by my new gym friend and by numerous bodybuilders, athletes and fitness enthusiasts before him. Without further ado, here are my answers to the most commonly asked questions about HGH releasers and HGH.com health and bodybuilding supplements:

Why is HGH so popular among bodybuilders and athletes?

Human growth hormone – better known as HGH – is a polypeptide hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. It is essential for growth and development, which is why the highest naturally occurring HGH levels are found in children and teens; and it is also involved in regulating body composition, metabolizing sugar and fat, and building skeletal muscle. After adolescence, HGH levels gradually decrease over time – and that’s where HGH supplementation comes in. Because HGH plays a role in growing and repairing muscle, many athletes, bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts rely on HGH supplements to help them build muscle and recover from intense training.

How are HGH releasers different from HGH injections?

HGH injections generally involve a synthetic form of growth hormones; each dose introduces HGH directly to the bloodstream through subcutaneous or intramuscular injection. By contrast, most HGH releasers – also known as HGH secretagogues – primarily feature natural ingredients that are consumed orally in capsule, liquid or powder form. Rather than elevating HGH levels with externally manufactured growth hormones, the HGH releasers in natural dietary supplements are intended to stimulate the body to produce more of its own HGH.

Why use natural HGH releasers versus synthetic HGH injections?

I personally prefer natural HGH supplements because I believe they are safer and easier to use than injections, as well as more affordable; and I know a lot of athletes and bodybuilders who feel the same way. Synthetic HGH can be very expensive, and it requires a prescription from a supervising physician. It has also been associated with a number of reported side effects, including joint pain, muscle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, edema, and numbness and tingling of the skin. And let’s face it – a lot of people simply hate needles, and would rather take supplements orally.

But perhaps the biggest argument in favor of over-the-counter natural HGH supplementation is that the FDA has only approved the use of injectable synthetic HGH for the treatment of specific diseases and medical conditions. Using HGH injections for “off-label” purposes – such as bodybuilding, weight-loss and anti-aging benefits – is considered “illicit”, and is therefore illegal if the synthetic growth hormone was not prescribed by a supervising physician. (The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has published a helpful HGH fact sheet with more details on the use and abuse of synthetic HGH.)

Since the majority of herbal dietary supplements are not FDA-regulated, consumers can legally purchase and use non-synthetic HGH releasers for muscle building, weight loss and recovery from intense workouts. And because HGH.com sells natural HGH and bodybuilding supplements rather than injectables, our over-the-counter products can be legally purchased and shipped anywhere in the United States – and in most other countries around the world.

Which HGH releasers are the best for bodybuilders?

HGH.com sells a variety of natural HGH releasers, including many “stackable” bodybuilding supplements that are designed to work together to produce visible results. But if I were asked to suggest just one product for someone who is getting started with HGH supplements, I would recommend our Purity Select HGF MAX supplements. These capsules contain a potent combination of natural ingredients that are formulated to naturally stimulate HGH production. Our proprietary HGF MAX blend includes L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-lysine, L-tyrosine, L-ornithine, glycine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), phosphatidyl choline, astragalus extract and deer antler velvet. Not only is HGF MAX designed to build lean muscle and aid in muscle recovery, but it has the potential to deliver a host of other benefits: enhanced metabolism and fat-burning capabilities; immune system support; increased stamina; anti-aging effects; more restful sleep; and improved skin, hair and nails. Other popular Purity Select HGH releasers include Somatropinne HGH, DBol-GH, Ana-GH, HGH Testosterone Plus, HGH 30,000 Nanograms Pills and 30,000 HGH Nanograms Spray.

Which HGH releasers are the best for recovery?

Most of the products we feature on HGH.com help support muscle recovery following intense training. If I were to narrow it down to my top three choices for hardcore bodybuilders, I would suggest Purity Select Somatropinne HGH, HGF MAX, and/or Cut and Ripped Plus. However, if anyone has questions about specific supplements or ingredients, we’re happy to provide answers. We have customer services representatives available via phone (888-399-5993), email (support@hgh.com) and live chat. Or you can connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and other online channels.

Any other advice?

Sure; there are a few parting points I would like to share:

  • First, always follow the usage and dosing instructions listed on the HGH supplement packaging. Our Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) labs carefully formulate the proper dosages of each supplement and explain how and when to take them for optimal benefits.
  • Second, be aware that heat can decrease the potency of certain supplement ingredients. So, be sure to store your HGH releasers in a cool, dry place. And whether you’re using capsules or powdered drink mixes, always take your supplements with cold (or room-temperature) liquids – save the hot beverages for well before or after your supplements.
  • Third, don’t hesitate to reach out to others for help and recommendations. We’re always here to answer your questions, and you’ll likely find that fellow weightlifters at your local gym are happy to share workout and supplement suggestions. Also, you can connect with bodybuilders you admire online. Our HGH.com-sponsored athletes – award-winning IFBB pros Richard “Tricky” Jackson, Ben White and Tara Silzer – regularly provide guidance and advice to their fans and followers. And finally, visit our HGH.com blog frequently; we often publish workout videos, articles and links to helpful resources.

L-Glutamine Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient L-Glutamine, or 2-Amino-4-Carbamoylbutanoic Acid

Glutamine – also known as L-glutamine and 2-amino-4-carbamoylbutanoic acid – is considered a conditionally essential amino acid. This means that while the body is usually able to produce sufficient amounts of glutamine for its daily needs, L-glutamine supplementation may be required in instances when glutamine is depleted due to stressors. Illness, injury, surgery, chemotherapy and intense exercise can all deplete glutamine levels. Individuals who need to replenish L-glutamine can obtain it through certain food sources as well as in natural health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGF-MAX, HGH 30,000 Nanograms pills and spray, and whey protein mixes.

Functions of L-Glutamine

Amino acids serve as the building blocks of protein, and glutamine acts as a precursor for protein synthesis. It is primarily produced by and stored within muscle, and distributed to other organs via the bloodstream. L-glutamine is believed to act as a human growth hormone (HGH) releaser, also known as an HGH secretagogue. In addition, glutamine is the major fuel source for enterocytes (intestinal absorptive cells) as well as lymphocytes and macrophages (white blood cells that play a key role within the immune system), and it appears to be required for healthy brain function and digestion. Furthermore, L-glutamine is involved in nitrogen exchange and plays a critical role in removing excess ammonia resulting from protein catabolism.

Sources of L-Glutamine

Dietary sources of glutamine include meat (beef, pork and poultry); dairy (milk, yogurt, ricotta cheese and cottage cheese); egg whites; leafy greens (raw spinach and cabbage); legumes (peanuts and soybeans); and grains (wheat, corn and barley). L-glutamine may also be consumed directly – in powder, tablet, capsule or liquid form – as part of a natural dietary supplement.

L-Glutamine Benefits and Uses

Considering L-glutamine’s role as an HGH releaser and precursor for protein synthesis, and given that glutamine levels typically drop following intense exercise, this amino acid has become a popular ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements. Rigorous workouts and lifting reduce intramuscular glutamine stores and can weaken the muscles if levels are not replenished. That’s why athletes, bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts often take L-glutamine supplements to aid in muscle maintenance, promote cell renewal and support the immune system – particularly when undergoing intensive training.

For many of the same reasons, L-glutamine can be a useful dietary supplement for individuals recovering from illness, injury, infections, severe burns and surgery. By strengthening the immune system, L-glutamine helps to fight off infections and neutralize excess ammonia and cortisol in the body. Its role in protecting the gastrointestinal lining may help individuals suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or short-bowel syndrome. It can help HIV/AIDS patients avoid weight loss, as it enables the intestines to better absorb nutrients. Evidence also suggests L-glutamine may be beneficial for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy by helping to combat cachexia (weight loss, muscle atrophy and fatigue) and stomatitis (inflammation and soreness in the mouth).

Side Effects of L-Glutamine and Potential Interactions

L-glutamine supplements are generally considered safe for adults, and no significant side effects have been reported in healthy users. However, L-glutamine may exacerbate symptoms in people with certain medical conditions, including liver disease, hepatic encephalopathy, kidney disease, Reye syndrome, seizures and mania.

Interactions are possible with some medications; for example, L-glutamine supplements may decrease the effectiveness of lactulose and anticonvulsants. There has also been conflicting evidence concerning the use of glutamine for cancer patients; while some studies confirm its beneficial effects, others indicate it may interact with cancer medications or potentially stimulate tumor growth. More detailed safety information on L-glutamine side effects and interactions can be found on WebMD. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing L-glutamine.

L-Glutamine Research and Studies

Numerous research studies have explored the impact of L-glutamine supplements on subjects ranging from healthy athletes to critically ill patients. In terms of its efficacy as an HGH releaser, an article published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicated that a small oral L-glutamine load is capable of raising alkaline reserves and increasing HGH concentration in plasma. Another study cited in Nutritional Neuroscience found that an oral supplement containing L-glutamine, glycine and niacin was shown to enhance HGH secretion in healthy middle-aged and elderly subjects.

According to the Asian Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers found that L-glutamine and carbohydrate supplementation improved the physical performance of athletes during repeated competitions by preventing anaerobic power decrease. An article published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition reported that L-alanyl-L-glutamine supplementation provided a significant ergogenic benefit by increasing time to exhaustion during endurance exercise. Animal studies also showed promising results; in Cell Biochemistry and Function, scientists examined muscle damage and inflammation in rats following prolonged exercise and found that L-glutamine supplementation diminished inflammation biomarkers and the inflammatory response.

Other research has explored L-glutamine’s effects from a medical perspective. A meta-analysis published in Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition & Metabolic Care concluded that L-glutamine has a beneficial effect on infectious complications and reduces the length of hospital stays, and noted that it may reduce morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. For additional L-glutamine research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
