Somatotropin/Somatropin Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of Somatotropin Supplements and Somatropin Injections

Somatotropin—also known as human growth hormone (HGH) or simply as growth hormone (GH)—is a polypeptide produced by somatotrope cells in the pituitary gland. It supports skeletal growth in children and adolescents, and plays a role in metabolism, body composition, muscle growth and tissue repair in adults. In addition to the somatotropin naturally produced by the body, a synthetic form of HGH called somatropin is available with a doctor’s prescription. Certain health and bodybuilding supplements may also help increase somatotropin production through natural ingredients known as HGH releasers. Many of these ingredients can be found in the proprietary-blend formulas of Somatropinne HGH, Growth Factor Plus, HGH 30,000 Nanograms, A-MAX 50, and HGF MAX, among others.

Functions of Somatotropin

Children and adolescents require somatotropin for proper growth and development; those with an HGH deficiency may require somatropin injections to achieve normal height. In adults, somatotropin helps maintain healthy tissues and organs. It can also increase bone density, muscle mass, and protein synthesis as well as decrease body fat and improve exercise capacity. Because HGH production naturally declines with age, some adults take somatotropin-boosting supplements to enhance their athletic performance and combat the physical signs of aging.

Sources of Somatotropin/Somatropin

For most individuals, the primary source of somatotropin is the body’s endogenous production by the somatotropic cells of the pituitary gland. The body produces its highest levels of somatotropin during childhood and adolescence; these levels significantly decline when the individual reaches full adult height. Scientists have also developed a synthetic form of somatotropin known as somatropin or somatrem, using E. coli or mammalian cells to create therapeutic proteins in a laboratory setting. Somatropin is chemically identical to the somatotropin that is produced by the pituitary gland and administered by subcutaneous injection. It is a regulated substance, which means it can only be legally prescribed for FDA-approved uses.

Since somatropin injections are not legally available to healthy adults, those seeking the benefits of somatotropin may opt to take natural supplements that are designed to boost the body’s own HGH production. Certain amino acids are recognized as natural HGH releasers—including GABA, arginine, ornithine, glutamine, lysine, tyrosine and glycine—so dietary supplements containing these ingredients may help increase somatotropin levels.

Somatropin Benefits and Uses

The pituitary gland’s secretion of somatotropin supports bodily growth and development throughout childhood and adolescence, so the most common reason for prescribing somatropin is to treat children and teens with HGH deficiency or specific medical conditions. FDA-approved pediatric uses of somatropin include idiopathic growth hormone deficiency, Noonan syndrome, Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, chronic renal insufficiency, short stature homeobox-containing gene (SHOX) deficiency, and idiopathic short stature.

Although HGH levels naturally decline with age, somatotropin continues to play a role throughout adulthood—helping to regulate metabolism and protein synthesis and promoting organ, tissue and bone health. Somatropin may be legally prescribed to adults who have severe HGH deficiency, which normally occurs due to a pituitary adenoma (tumor) or adenoma-related surgery or radiation treatments. It is also sometimes prescribed to prevent or minimize wasting in AIDS patients.

Somatropin injections can improve bone density, muscle mass and exercise capacity in adults with HGH deficiency, and they can produce similar outcomes in healthy adults. As a result, some bodybuilders and athletes take somatropin to enhance their athletic performance and physique. However, it should be noted that somatropin cannot legally be prescribed for such purposes. Furthermore, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), International Olympic Committee and numerous sports organizations have banned the use of HGH injections among athletes.

Given the potential repercussions associated with illegal somatropin injections, many bodybuilders, athletes and aging adults have starting taking natural HGH supplements to help the body increase its own somatotropin production. Proponents of somatotropin-boosting supplements report that these natural HGH releasers have helped them develop lean muscle, improve their strength and endurance, and recover from intense workouts and injuries more quickly. They also credit HGH supplements with enhancing their body composition and slowing the visible signs of aging.

Somatropin Side Effects

Individuals considering HGH injections should be aware of somatropin side effects and interactions. Some users have experienced an allergic reaction, with symptoms such as itching or rashes, chest pain, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face, tongue, or throat. Other possible side effects include headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, fluid retention, swelling of the hands or feet, muscle stiffness or pain, and burning, tingling or numbness in the skin. Somatropin may increase the risk of developing diabetes, cancer or pancreatitis, and it can cause dislocation of the hipbone that results in limping or knee/hip pain. Interactions have been recorded when somatropin is used with estrogen hormone replacement or glucocorticoids (such as prednisone or hydrocortisone), and somatropin can cause adverse effects in patients with diabetes, scoliosis, kidney disease and certain other medical conditions.

Somatotropin-boosting HGH supplements tend to have fewer and less severe side effects than somatropin injections; however, the side effects and interactions will vary depending on the supplement’s ingredients.

More detailed safety information on somatropin side effects, interactions and precautions can be found on the Mayo Clinic website. For natural somatotropin-boosting supplements, refer to the relevant ingredient articles on to learn about potential side effects and interactions. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before using somatropin injections or natural HGH supplements.

Somatotropin/Somatropin Research and Studies

Researchers have conducted numerous studies on both the natural and synthetic forms of somatotropin. Visit the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to explore the latest somatotropin research and somatropin studies. For research on specific ingredients that have been shown to boost somatotropin levels, refer to the corresponding ingredient articles on the blog.

Bovine Colostrum Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Bovine Colostrum

Bovine colostrum – also known as bovine immunoglobulin or simply as colostrum – is a milky fluid secreted by a cow’s mammary glands in the first few days after calving, prior to full lactation. Colostrum is also produced by humans and other mammals; however, the primary source of colostrum in dietary supplements is cattle. It contains a number of beneficial substances, including immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, proline-rich polypeptides, cytokines, growth factors, and other vitamins and minerals. Adults can obtain the benefits of colostrum through natural health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGH 30,000 Nanograms pills, DBol-GH, Growth Factor Plus and protein shake mixes.

Functions of Colostrum

The nutrients, antibodies and growth factors contained in colostrum contribute to the health and development of newborns. Similarly, these substances can have beneficial effects for adults when colostrum extract is consumed via dietary supplements. Immunoglobulin and lactoferrin have antiviral and antibacterial properties that support immune system function, while proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) and cytokines help regulate immune system activity. Furthermore, the cytokines and growth factors in colostrum appear to enhance the protective and repair capabilities of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Colostrum’s growth factors are also believed to improve athletic performance, increase lean body mass, and accelerate muscle recovery and repair.

Sources of Colostrum

Female mammals secrete colostrum from their mammary glands following the birth of a newborn, before full lactation occurs. Infants consume colostrum during their first few days of nursing. Adults generally obtain colostrum through health supplements that contain bovine colostrum – the extract of a cow’s first milk.

Bovine Colostrum Benefits and Uses

Evidence suggests that the health benefits of bovine colostrum include supporting and stimulating immune system function, preventing infections, providing GI protection, treating diarrhea and colitis, and accelerating healing. Bovine colostrum is also used as an ingredient in human growth hormone (HGH) releasers and bodybuilding supplements, as the naturally occurring growth hormones in colostrum are believed to enhance athletic performance, improve body composition, and promote faster recovery from injuries and intense workouts. These performance-related benefits derive from the growth hormones’ ability to help increase lean muscle mass, metabolize fat for fuel, improve stamina, and stimulate cell and tissue growth.

Side Effects of Bovine Colostrum and Potential Interactions

Dietary supplements containing bovine colostrum are generally considered safe for healthy adults, as few side effects have been reported. However, individuals who are allergic to cow’s milk may also have an allergic reaction to bovine colostrum. There have been rare reports of side effects in HIV-positive patients, such as nausea and vomiting. Colostrum may contain high levels of naturally occurring estrogen, so patients with hormone-sensitive cancer should avoid it. There are no known interactions of bovine colostrum with medications. Information on bovine colostrum contraindications is provided on the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center website, while details on colostrum side effects can be found on WebMD. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing bovine colostrum.

Colostrum Research and Studies

Considerable research has been conducted on the effects of bovine colostrum, particularly in relation to its health benefits and impact on athletic performance. Scholarly articles published in Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics, the Alternative Medicine Review and the British Journal of Nutrition explored the clinical uses of bovine colostrum and reported that hyperimmune bovine colostrum has been proven effective in treating diarrhea caused by rotavirus, E. Coli, cryptosporidium, shigellosis, C. difficile infection (CDI) and other GI infections.

In terms of athletic performance, body composition, and healing and recovery, numerous studies suggest that bovine colostrum can have positive effects. In the Journal of Applied Physiology, European researchers asserted that bovine colstrum has the ability to naturally increase levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which may promote protein synthesis. A review of studies published in Sports Medicine cited evidence suggesting that bovine colostrum supplementation is most effective during periods of high-intensity training and recovery from high-intensity training, producing improved intramuscular buffering capacity and increases in lean body mass. In the Australian Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, researchers noted that bovine colostrum improves recovery time. Scientists reported in Nutrition that when bovine colostrum is combined with exercise, it may increase bone-free lean body mass in active men and women. And in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, researchers stated that colostrum supplementation helped improve leg-press and upper-body strength and generated increases in muscle thickness, lean tissue mass and cognitive function in older adults during resistance training.

For additional bovine colostrum research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Supplements Containing Bovine Colostrum

Bodybuilders, athletes and fitness enthusiasts can reap the health benefits of bovine colostrum with these natural HGH releasers and bodybuilding supplements from

How do Natural Growth Hormone Supplements Work?

There are many different types of natural growth hormone supplements on the market and it's hard to know not only if they will work, but also how they work. Maybe by understanding how these natural supplements stimulate growth you can determine whether or not they are a scam, or if they indeed will work and work for you.

What do we mean by "growth hormone stimulation"?
Growth Hormone is not necessarily "growing taller", although that's definitely a possibility; but rather when we say growth, we mean muscle and bone growth and density. Other benefits that we won't get into include the known benefits of HGH such as:
  • Anti-aging;
  • Better sleep;
  • Increased memory;
  • Muscle growth;
  • Better bone density;
  • Increased Sexual Performance;
  • And about 25 other more...
Natural growth hormone supplements work in many different ways, depending on the ingredients of the supplement itself. The main purpose of these natural stimulators is to stimulate your natural growth hormone in your body. Simply put, they tell your body to produce more of the natural hormones that your body already produces. As you age past your mid to late twenties, your body slowly starts producing growth hormone (human growth hormone, referred to as HGH). Over time, this HGH decreases to almost nothing, causing your body to age, your muscles to weaken, and your skin to wrinkle. What keeps your body so young in your twenties and even thirties is the production of your growth hormone.

There are many different ingredients that can stimulate growth. Some are definitely better than others, and some will have different results depending on the person, their age, and also their genetic makeup. That's why there are so many alternatives available (at least one of the reasons). Some of the best natural growth hormone supplementswill include many different known growth factors that are scientifically proven to stimulate growth. An important note is that there are certain natural ingredients only effective if produced by a reputable company - this is due to the fact that those ingredients will only work when extracted in certain parts of the world and in certain ways. So a cheap supplement that shows you an ingredient might not be the same quality of supplement and will not work the same as the competitor. The phrase "you pay for what you get" is definitely true when it comes to Growth Supplements. At the end of the day, these are pills you're putting into your body - make sure you trust the quality.

You can buy our natural growth hormone supplements at or you can read more about Growth Hormone as a drug on Wikipedia.
