HGH.com Shares Top 10 Benefits of Natural Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Supplements

HGH.com Supplements Are Intended to Naturally Boost HGH Levels to Improve Health, Body, Mind and Strength

BOONTON, N.J., Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Human growth hormone (HGH) has been credited with a variety of positive effects on health and wellness; but since injectable HGH can only legally be prescribed for a limited range of health conditions,* many consumers have turned to natural HGH supplements. HGH.com, an established industry leader that manufactures a range of health and bodybuilding supplements in U.S.-based Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facilities, aims to leverage the advantages of HGH with a range of targeted products.

HGH.com began researching and developing HGH releasers in 1993 and selling over-the-counter supplements through its online storefront in 2003. Today, the company offers a wide array of HGH supplements and conducts ongoing research to drive product improvements.

HGH.com Lists Top 10 Benefits of Their Natural HGH Supplements for 2017:

  • Anti-Aging Supplements: The body's ability to produce HGH declines with age, so boosting HGH levels can help to reverse the visible signs of aging and support optimal physical condition. HGH.com's anti-aging formulations include Somatropinne HGH, HGH 30,000 Nanos pills and spray, HGF Max, Female Hormone Balancer with Sensoril and SkinPerfect Anti-Aging with Collagen.
  • Brain Health Supplements: Because HGH stimulates cell growth and regeneration, it has beneficial effects on the brain and can help improve memory, focus, learning and emotional wellbeing. HGF Max, Somatropinne HGH, and HGH 30,000 Nanos pills and spray all contribute to better brain health.
  • Cartilage Support Supplements: Athletes who engage in strenuous workouts can put a lot of strain on their joints. Consequently, many rely on HGH supplements such as Growth Factor Plus, Cut and Ripped Plus, Somatropinne HGH and HGF Max to promote faster recovery and support healthy joints, cartilage and bones.
  • Energy Boosters/Metabolism Boosters: Energy levels and metabolism often decline with age, so HGH's ability to boost energy, stamina and metabolism can help users maximize the effects of their workouts. Somatropinne HGH, HGH 30,000 Nanos pills and spray, HGH Testosterone, HGF Max, ClenXDV, Ana-GH, DBol-GH, and Cut and Ripped Plus are all formulated to deliver these benefits.
  • Mass Gain: Bodybuilders and athletes frequently turn to HGH supplements to help them quickly build lean mass and muscle. HGH.com's mass builder products include DBol-GH, A-Max 50, Dekka, RoidX Juice, Ana-GH, Cut and Ripped Plus, Somatropinne HGH and HGH Spray 30,000 Nanos.
  • Memory Support: To combat age-related memory loss, many adults take HGH supplements such as Somatropinne HGH, HGF Max, and HGH 30,000 Nanos pills. These products help support healthy brain function and improve memory, focus and sleep.
  • Muscle Growth: One of the reasons HGH releasers are especially popular among bodybuilders is their ability to promote rapid muscle growth. HGH.com muscle builder formulas include Growth Factor Plus, A-Max 50, Dekka, RoidX Juice, HGF Max, Winadrol, ClenXDV, Ana-GH, DBol-H, Cut and Ripped Plus, Somatropinne HGH, and HGH 30,000 Nanos pills and spray.
  • Skin Care, Hair and Nails: Among the key anti-aging effects associated with HGH are improved skin texture, elasticity and moisture, as well as longer and stronger hair and nails. SkinPerfect Hair, Skin and Nails supplements deliver these and other benefits, as do Somatropinne HGH, HGF Max, and HGH 30,000 Nanos pills and spray.
  • Weight Loss Pills: HGH supplements have the ability to boost metabolism and burn fat, helping users achieve rapid weight loss and long-term weight loss. HGH.com offers several formulas that can aid in weight loss, including Hydrox Slim, Female Hormone Balancer with Sensoril, ClenXDV, HGF Max, Somatropinne HGH, and HGH 30,000 Nanos pills and spray.
  • Height Growth Supplements: One of the primary uses of prescription HGH is to treat poor growth and idiopathic short stature in children.* Many adults have sought similar benefits from over-the-counter HGH releasers such as Growth Factor Plus and Somatropinne HGH.

"Our supplements are formulated with natural ingredients that are designed to increase the body's production of HGH, thereby maximizing these benefits," explained Smith. "Thousands of satisfied clients rely on HGH.com products to achieve different health, fitness and bodybuilding goals, and to help keep their mind and body in the best shape possible."

HGH.com is currently offering a special promotion of 20.17% off all orders over $100 with the promo code 2017. Explore the full range of natural HGH, bodybuilding and fitness supplements at http://www.hgh.com.

Cowhage Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Cowhage, or Mucuna Pruriens

Mucuna pruriens – also known as cowhage, cowitch or velvet bean – is a plant that grows in tropic and sub-tropic regions. It is classified as a legume and has seed-producing pods. If the hairy outer covering of the pods touches human skin, it can cause contact dermatitis and severe itching; however, extracts from the plant have long been used in traditional medicine. Today, Mucuna pruriens is often used as an ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, such as HGH 30,000 Spray, Somatropinne HGH and Anapolan-MAX 50.

Functions of Cowhage

While Mucuna pruriens is technically classified as a vegetable, its extract is more commonly consumed in the form of medicine or supplements. Cowhage is a good natural source of levodopa, or L-dopa, which in the human body serves as a precursor for the neurotransmitter dopamine. Since L-dopa is used in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, cowhage has been widely studied for its potential in this area. In addition, cowhage extract is noted for its anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and antioxidant properties, which are also believed to be due to the presence of L-dopa. And because L-dopa has been shown to stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) secretion and synthesis, some experts believe that the L-dopa in cowhage may act as an HGH releaser.

Sources of Cowhage

Indigenous to southern China and eastern India, Mucuna pruriens is cultivated in Asia, Africa, and parts of North and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and Pacific Islands. The plant is rich in protein and minerals; and in some cultures, cowhage pods and beans are prepared as food. In Mexico and Guatemala, the seeds are roasted and used as a coffee substitute known as “Nescafe” (though there is no relation to the trademarked coffee brand of the same name). However, in the United States, cowhage is most commonly used in extract form as an ingredient in medicines and dietary supplements.

Cowhage Benefits and Uses

As a natural source of L-dopa, cowhage has been most widely studied and used as a treatment for Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s disease. Evidence suggests it may also benefit other dopamine-related conditions, such as tardive dyskinesia. The plant’s L-dopa content has been shown to increase dopamine and testosterone levels in adult males while suppressing prolactin levels, which supports cowhage’s traditional use as an aphrodisiac and fertility enhancer. Studies have also shown it can reduce cortisol levels, which in turn may lower perceived stress levels and contribute to a sense of well-being. Because L-dopa has been shown to stimulate HGH levels, cowhage extract is frequently used as an ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, in which it is believed to promote muscle growth and act as a fat-burner.

Numerous other positive effects have been attributed to cowhage extract, including anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-epileptic, anti-microbial and antioxidant properties. Various studies have explored its potential for treating diabetes, skin diseases and other pathologies. Cowhage has also been successfully used as an anti-venom that counters the toxic effects of some snake bites, such as from cobras and other vipers.

Side Effects of Cowhage and Potential Interactions

Supplements containing Mucuna pruriens extract are generally considered safe for healthy adults. Some minor side effects have been reported, such as nausea and a bloated feeling in the abdomen; less common side effects include vomiting, headaches, jitteriness and insomnia. However, individuals with certain medical conditions or anyone taking medications contraindicated for L-dopa should exercise caution when taking supplements containing cowhage extract. L-dopa can cause low blood pressure, lightheadedness and fainting in patients with cardiovascular disease, and it may cause blood sugar levels to drop too low in people with diabetes or hypoglycemia. The L-dopa in cowhage may also worsen some conditions, such as liver disease, melanoma, gastrointestinal ulcers or mental illness. Cowhage supplements should not be taken in conjunction with monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) antidepressants or when taking methyldopa for hypertension. Moderate interactions may occur with other antihypertensive drugs (guanethidine), insulin, diabetes medications, antipsychotic drugs, tricyclic antidepressants or anesthesia.

More detailed safety information on cowhage side effects and interactions can be found on healthcare websites such as WebMD. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing cowhage extract.

Cowhage Research and Studies

Numerous studies have examined the pharmacological effects of Mucuna pruriens extract, primarily in relation to its L-dopa content. A 2012 review published in Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine highlights the plant’s medicinal properties and related research findings, many of which are summarized above in the “Cowhage Benefits and Uses” section of this article. Research published in Clinical Neuropharmacology, Parkinsonism & Related Disorders, and the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry have demonstrated the value of cowhage extract in treating the symptoms of Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s disease. In fact, some studies suggest that cowhage extract may have advantages over conventional L-dopa preparations, such as reducing the risk of drug-induced dyskinesia (DID).

Research dating from the early 1970s to present has established that L-dopa has the potential to stimulate HGH secretion and synthesis, as documented in Clinical Interventions in Aging and in several studies published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. One study featured in Nutrition and Metabolic Insights specifically investigated the effects of a Mucuna pruriens (velvet bean) and Chlorophytum borivilianum blend supplement on serum growth hormone levels in exercise-trained men, and found that it produced an increase in circulating HGH levels.

Other studies have indicated that cowhage supplements may contribute to a wide range of health benefits, from treating male infertility to improving sleep quality. Animal studies also suggest that cowhage extract may help reduce blood glucose levels and lower cholesterol, triglycerides and phospholipids. However, further clinical studies are needed to definitively support these findings and their potential applications in humans.

For additional cowhage research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

At HGH.com, we are proud to be recognized as the leading manufacturer and producer of natural natural bodybuilding, fitness, health and HGH supplements. Below you will find a collection of informative and educational HGH related articles to help our customers, patrons and end-users have a place to learn all about HGH.

HGH, Human Growth Hormone (Somatropinne) - How it works

"HGH" stands for "Human Growth Hormone". Growth Hormones are produced naturally by the body's pituitary gland at the base of the human brain. However, the body sometimes does not produce enough of the hormone, which can stunt growth. Further, the amount of growth hormone decreases exponetially (naturally) as you get older. This "aging" can take a toll on your body, which can be even more affected with unsteady or unhealthy diets or lack of exercise.

Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

The main purpose of HGH is to support human growth and development during childhood and adolescence, and this is the most common reason synthetic HGH is prescribed to young patients. However, human growth hormone continues to play a role throughout adulthood; it helps to regulate metabolism and protein synthesis and supports bone, tissue and organ health. - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/human-growth-hormone-hgh-benefits-uses-side-effects-and-functions

Somatotropin/Somatropin Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

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. 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 - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/somatotropin-somatropin-bnefits-uses-side-effects-and-functions

Human Growth Hormones - A Quick Primer

Human Growth Hormones are substances in our bodies that we should all value, greatly, but we probably never even think about them or hear about all the wonderful things they can do for us. As adults in crisis, either through an AIDS related disease, cancer, surgery, or the effects of too much radiation, these hormones can help us recover. As elder citizens, HGH can help fight muscle loss and other signs of aging. Read the full article at http://www.hgh.com/articles/human-growth-hormones/index.aspx

HGH Reduces Body Fat - Benefits of HGH

Upon turning 40, some people experience what is commonly called “middle-age spread.” Regardless of diet or exercise, it becomes harder and harder to keep the stomach area from storing up fatty deposits.HGH supplements are used to stave off the accumulation of fat around the stomach and vital organs, thus helping to avoid a potential heart attack or a worse health condition down the road.

How to Increase HGH Levels Naturally

In recent years, I’ve seen a growing level of interest in how to increase HGH levels naturally, particularly among bodybuilders and athletes. Given the controversy and issues associated with synthetic HGH injections, many people are seeking out natural ways to increase their body’s own production of HGH. This is something that I do myself, and it’s a topic I’ve often discussed with our HGH.com-sponsored athletes – IFBB pros Tricky Jackson, Ben White and Tara Silzer. So I decided to compile our top tips in one blog post, which highlights seven effective ways to naturally boost HGH levels - Read the full article at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/how-to-increase-hgh-levels-naturally

 




Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of Human Growth Hormone, or HGH, Supplements

Human growth hormone (HGH)—also known as somatotropin or simply as growth hormone (GH)—is a polypeptide hormone that is produced by the pituitary gland. It promotes growth in children and adolescents, and plays a role in body composition, metabolism, muscle growth and tissue repair in adults. Beyond the human growth hormones naturally produced by the body, synthetic HGH—or recombinant HGH—is manufactured in laboratories and may be obtained with a doctor’s prescription. Select health and bodybuilding supplements may also help boost human growth hormone levels with natural ingredients known as HGH releasers or HGH secretagogues. Many of these ingredients may be found in products such as HGH 30,000 Nanograms, Somatropinne HGH, Ana-GH, DBol-GH and Growth Factor Plus, among others.

Functions of Human Growth Hormone

HGH is required to support proper growth and development in children and adolescents, and it also plays a role in adult metabolism. Human growth hormone may help increase muscle mass, bone density, exercise capacity and protein synthesis, and may decrease body fat. It also helps maintain healthy tissues and organs. Since human growth hormone production naturally declines with age, many believe that HGH supplementation may help improve athletic performance and provide anti-aging benefits in adults.

Sources of HGH

As previously noted, the primary source of human growth hormone is the pituitary gland. HGH production peaks during childhood and adolescence, and substantially declines once full adult height is attained. Laboratory-manufactured synthetic HGH—also known as recombinant HGH, somatropin or somatrem—is another source of growth hormone available to some individuals. This injectable form of HGH may be prescribed to children and some adults that have been diagnosed with human growth hormone deficiency or specific medical conditions. Synthetic HGH is a regulated substance and may only legally be prescribed for FDA-approved uses. These include Turner’s syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, chronic renal insufficiency and idiopathic short stature in children, as well as HGH deficiency and AIDS-related wasting in adults.

Since recombinant HGH is not legally available to healthy adults, many individuals rely on natural HGH supplements that are formulated to increase their body’s own production of human growth hormone. A number of amino acids are recognized as natural HGH releasers. These include L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-glycine, L-lysine, L-ornithine, L-tyrosine and GABA.

Human Growth Hormone Benefits and Uses

The main purpose of HGH is to support human growth and development during childhood and adolescence, and this is the most common reason synthetic HGH is prescribed to young patients. However, human growth hormone continues to play a role throughout adulthood; it helps to regulate metabolism and protein synthesis and supports bone, tissue and organ health. Recombinant HGH may be legally prescribed to adults who have severe HGH deficiency, which typically results from a pituitary adenoma (tumor) or treatment of an adenoma with surgery or radiotherapy. Synthetic growth hormone is also sometimes prescribed to treat the wasting syndrome that may occur in individuals with AIDS.

Human growth hormone injections may increase muscle mass, bone density and exercise capacity in adults with HGH deficiency, and it may produce similar effects in healthy adults. For this reason, some athletes and bodybuilders take recombinant HGH to improve their physique and athletic performance, even though it cannot legally be prescribed for such purposes and is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), International Olympic Committee and numerous sports organizations.

In light of the controversy and legal restrictions surrounding injectable HGH, a growing number of athletes, bodybuilders and aging adults have turned to natural HGH supplements that may help boost the pituitary gland’s secretion of human growth hormone. Many report that L-group amino acids and other natural HGH releasers have helped them build lean muscle, enhance bodily strength, increase athletic endurance, tone their physique, recover faster from intense workouts and injuries, and minimize or reverse the visible signs of aging.

HGH Side Effects

Synthetic human growth hormone injections are associated with a number of side effects that may range widely in severity. Among the more serious HGH side effects some patients have experienced are atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), hypertension (high blood pressure), and abnormal growth of bones and internal organs such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. HGH may also increase the risk of developing diabetes and may cause cancerous tumors to grow in size. Other human growth hormone side effects include: edema (swelling caused by excess fluid in tissues); carpal tunnel syndrome; joint, muscle or nerve pain; numbness or tingling sensations in the skin; headaches; dizziness; blurred vision; chest pain; irregular heartbeat; and a rash or itching near the injection site.

Natural HGH supplements, in general, tend to have fewer and less severe side effects than synthetic growth hormone injections; however, the side effects and interactions will vary depending on the ingredients.

More detailed safety information on synthetic HGH side effects maybe found on the Mayo Clinic website under the “Growth Hormone (Parenteral Route)” entry. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before using synthetic human growth hormone injections or HGH supplements.

HGH Research and Studies

A wide body of research exists on human growth hormones, including naturally produced HGH, recombinant HGH and ingredients that function as HGH releasers. Refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for an overview of the latest HGH research or to search for articles highlighting the results of human growth hormone studies. For research on specific ingredients that function as HGH releasers, refer to the relevant ingredient articles on the HGH.com blog.

May 2015 Tips from IFBB Pros Presented by HGH.com

HGH.com Presents IFBB Pros & Tips: May 2015 Edition

IFBB Pros seem to know all the best workout tips and secrets for success. In this month's edition of Tips from IFBB Pros HGH.com presents three video clips and several more pins on the Pinterest board dedicated to IFBB pros and tips. We start this post with shoulder and back training with Phil Heath, followed by glute exercises with IFBB Bikini Pro, Annette De La Rosa. Then, we round out the video clips with a look at Victor Martinez working out six weeks before the 2015 New York Pro competition.

Phil Heath’s Back and Shoulder Training

As you aspire to build mountainous shoulders with an amped up back, you want to see how the pros make it happen. IFBB Professional Bodybuilder and Mr. Olympia Phil Heath gives us an inside view of a few shoulder and back exercises he does as he prepares for the 2015 Mr. Olympia competition. We get to see this IFBB Pro demonstrate several exercises, including:

  • Bent Over Dumbbell Rows
  • Plate Loaded Seat Rows
  • Roc-It Lat Pull Downs
  • Standing Military Presses
  • Plate Loaded Shoulder Presses
  • Lateral Raises
  • Reverse Pec Decks
  • Hammer Front Raises
  • Lateral Raises
  • Bent Over Dumbbell Reverse Flyes
  • Seated Dumbbell Presses

Glute Training with IFBB Pro Anette De La Rosa

Get the skinny on how IFBB Pro Anette De La Rosa trains her butt off. Typically, she does two leg days each week, with one of those days concentrating more on her gluteus maximus and hamstrings. One of her favorite exercises to do is the reverse half-squat, because it focuses on the hamstrings and glutes, both on the way down and the way back up. The apparatus she likes to workout on most is when gyms have the butt blaster. Even when she’s on the Stairmaster, she focuses on her glutes.

Victor Martinez Gets Ready for the New York Pro 2015

You know those times when you say, "Wow! I really wish I knew what he did to get such massive muscles." Well, this is one of those moments when you get to find out. Take a look at IFBB Pro Victor Martinez as he pumps iron. With only six week's left before the New York Pro 2015, Victor is on a mission to pile on the mass. What's his workout like? The video below provides a sneak peek inside one of his pre-competition workouts.

Great news! Victor placed 2nd at the New York Pro 2015 men's bodybuilding competition.

L-Ornithine Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient L-Ornithine, or (S)-2,5-Diaminopentanoic Acid

Ornithine – also known as L-ornithine, (S)-2,5-diaminopentanoic acid or (S)-alpha,delta-diaminovaleric acid – is a crystalline amino acid. Different sources refer to it as a nonessential or conditionally essential amino acid, which means that it is normally produced by the body in sufficient amounts; however, dietary supplementation may be beneficial in times of illness, injury or stress. L-ornithine is found in some food sources as well as in health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGH 30,000 Nanograms pills and HGF MAX.

Functions of L-Ornithine

Together with arginine and citrulline, ornithine is one of three amino acids that play a key role in the urea cycle. The conversion of arginine into ornithine and ornithine into citrulline increases urea production while lowering ammonia concentrations in the blood. Citrulline subsequently binds with aspartate to form arginosuccinate, which breaks down into free arginine and fumarate; through this process, ornithine is metabolized back into arginine by the liver. Because L-ornithine helps accelerate the excretion of ammonia, it is believed to promote proper liver function, prevent fatigue and enhance performance during prolonged exercise. Evidence also suggests that L-ornithine may stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) production, thereby serving as a natural HGH releaser.

Sources of L-Ornithine

The human body manufactures ornithine from the amino acid arginine as part of the urea cycle. Dietary sources of L-ornithine include protein-rich foods such as beef, chicken, pork, fish, eggs, dairy products, peanuts and soybeans. L-ornithine may also be consumed in natural dietary supplements.

L-Ornithine Benefits and Uses

Among the benefits of ornithine is its ability to detoxify ammonia levels in the bloodstream; because of this function, it can be used to treat hepatic encephalopathy (a brain complication caused by liver disease). It also appears to help reduce fatigue and mitigate the effects of alcohol consumption, improving sleep quality and decreasing negative feelings the next morning. In addition, L-ornithine may promote wound healing, contribute to immune system function, support weight management, reduce stress and improve overall mood. Some evidence suggests L-ornithine acts as a natural HGH releaser, or HGH secretagogue. Because of its ability to boost HGH production and reduce fatigue, L-ornithine supplements are often taken to improve athletic performance, enhance muscle growth and increase endurance.

Side Effects of L-Ornithine and Potential Interactions

L-ornithine supplements are generally considered safe for adults; no serious side effects or drug interactions have been reported at doses of 2 to 6 grams per day. However, excessive doses (more than 10 grams per day) may potentially cause intestinal distress or diarrhea in some users.

More detailed safety information on L-ornithine dosing, side effects and interactions can be found on Examine.com. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing L-ornithine.

L-Ornithine Research and Studies

Various research studies have shown that L-ornithine can be used therapeutically for certain medical conditions as well as to enhance overall health, well being and athletic performance. For example, a group of Polish researchers reported that L-ornithine-L-aspartate (LOLA) supplementation has the ability to lower blood ammonia concentration, eliminate symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy associated with liver cirrhosis and stimulate tissue regeneration, while a Japanese study determined that healthy office workers who consumed a combination of caffeine and ornithine had higher mood ratings, less fatigue and better concentration than those who consumed caffeine alone. Japanese researchers also tested the effects of L-ornithine on salivary cortisol, mood and feelings of fatigue the morning after alcohol consumption, and found that L-ornithine supplements lowered cortisol levels, increased sleep length and significantly decreased feelings of fatigue, anger/hostility and confusion.

Study findings published in the Nutrition Journal and Nutrition Research revealed that L-ornithine not only has the potential to relieve stress and improve sleep quality in fatigued office workers, but also to reduce physical fatigue during exercise. Researchers stated that the decrease in physical fatigue is due to L-ornithine’s ability to modulate lipid and amino acid metabolism, thereby increasing the efficiency of energy consumption. Furthermore, a recent animal study published in the Brain Research Bulletin found that L-ornithine reduced body weight, abdominal fat and food intake in rats.

Beyond the research indicating L-ornithine’s potential to reduce fatigue and overall body weight, several studies suggest that it can improve strength and HGH levels. A study published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness revealed that arginine and ornithine supplementation paired with a high-intensity strength-training program increased total strength and lean body mass in a relatively short period of time. The article also reported that the arginine and ornithine supplements aided in recovery from chronic stress by quelling tissue breakdown, as evidenced by lower urinary hydroxyproline levels. Furthermore, a double-blind study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that ornithine and arginine supplementation increased human growth hormone (HGH) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) serum levels after heavy-resistance exercise in strength-trained athletes. While further research is needed, the preliminary findings on L-ornithine supplements show significant promise for improving athletic performance, building muscle and elevating HGH levels.

For additional L-ornithine research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
