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).

The top 5 best natural growth hormone supplements

 
With all of the options for HGH supplements on the market today, we thought we would summarize the top 5 supplements that we think are the best natural growth hormone supplements available now. It's important to note that there are many different types of supplements available and all are meant to give you different benefits - not all are the same. It's especially important to note that since we are all genetically created differently, some pills work better for some people while other supplements are preferable to other people. Therefore, we at HGH.com try to develop supplements for all types of people and for as many functions as possible.

Our Top 5 Natural Growth Hormone Supplements (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER)
 

  1. Somatropinne HGH Somatropinne HGH is an HGH supplement that has dominated the industry for years. The proprietary ingredients are known to increase HGH levels in those who take it without side effects. Increasing your HGH levels will help rejuvenate your body and your muscle. -"This is by far the strongest HGH supplement I've taken. I'm very happy with this pill."
  2. "ANA-GH" - "ANA-GH" is a newer supplement that we created in late 2011. This revolutionary bodybuilding pills is designed to give you incredible mass gains with little to no side effects such as bloating, acne, upset stomach, headaches, etc...

  3. HGF MAX - "HGF MAX" is also a newer supplement that we created in early 2012. HGF Max is truly a revolutionary pill designed to increase your HGH levels to the Max!

  4. HGH 30,000 Spray - HGH Spray is a proven spray that will increase your HGH Levels and supplement your growth hormone. It is the #1 HGH Spray on the market and has a tremendous success rate, which is why we see so many reorders for the product by the same people. We modified the formula and improved it in 2010 by adding Deer Antler Velvet, which is scientifically proven to be similar to insulin like growth factors (IGF-1). Deer Antler Velvet simply increases the power of our HGH Spray.
    -"This product is truly great - I've seen incredible gains from it and I fully recommend it. I know that there are pro football players using this exact same spray!"
  5. HGH Testosterone 1500 - HGH Testosterone technically isn't a Growth Hormone Supplement as much as it is a Testosterone supplement. However, we have seen such amazing results with it increasing testosterone levels that we added it to our top 5. By increasing your testosterone levels, you can certainly improve your hormone levels. Our latest batch of HGH Testosterone 1500 includes "Long Jack" which is an incredible growth element. Added bonus for men - this pill will increase your libido!

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 sheetwith 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.

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.

The Importance Of HGH - Human Growth Hormones

Why HGH is So Important

A Quick Read on Why HGH is so Important...
 
There is a reason why a multi-million dollar industry has developed around human growth hormone and human growth hormone therapy treatments. Everyone wants this important hormone in their body and at sufficient levels. Otherwise, they may begin to experience ill health effects. Insufficient levels of human growth hormone may also be a problem as people age. They may be helped by supplementing their bodies with different hormones.
 
The Function of HGH and why levels fall...
 
Human growth hormone fuels growth in children and young adults. Produced in the pituitary gland - located at the base of the brain - the hormone spurs muscle, tissue, cell and organ growth among the other signs of growing older and maturing. Essentially, this hormone is responsible for keeping bodies young, vital, strong and healthy. This is why when levels of the hormone recede, a person may begin to feel old, weak and unhealthy.
 
When a man or woman reaches their middle-age years (around the age of 30), the pituitary gland begins to slow the production of human growth hormone. This is a natural process and one that many consider to be the aging process. When a person ages and begins to feel weak and no longer energetic, that may be due to the plummeting levels of human growth hormone.
 
While everyone experiences this decline, some men and women could even suffer from ailments that limit the production of human growth hormone even further, making it important to replenish the hormone. These ailments are rare, but can come in the form as such conditions as a tumor on the pituitary gland.
 
Supplementing HGH helps restore the body!
 
Decades ago, once a man or woman began to experience slowed production of human growth hormone, they were destined for a life of little to no energy with a weaker, frail body. Through medical breakthroughs, doctors can now supplement the body with human growth hormone to bring that youth and vitality back to a person's life. Through human growth hormone, men and women will discover more energy, stronger muscles, increased bone density and better performance in sex, which are all more akin to their younger years.
 
The mass media often refers to the use of human growth hormone as a means of anti-aging because may help restore some measure of youth and vitality to a person's life.
