BOONTON, N.J., Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine,(1) deer antler velvet has recently emerged in the dietary supplement market as a key ingredient in human growth hormone (HGH) formulations. HGH.com—a leading manufacturer of natural HGH supplements—has leveraged the advantages of deer antler velvet in its popular HGF Max pills and other stackable products, including HGH spray, ClenXDV, and Cut and Ripped Plus.
A review of pharmacological studies indicates that deer antler velvet offers a variety of benefits, such as anti-inflammatory, anti-fatigue, anti-stress, immunomodulatory and other effects that are attributed to its major bioactive compounds: amino acids, polypeptides and proteins.(1) Studies have also suggested its effectiveness in aiding fracture, injury and wound healing.(2, 3)
Deer antler velvet has been found to contain insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a precursor to HGH, and is used by athletes to improve heart function and muscle recovery. Several professional athletes made headlines for taking deer antler velvet supplements, since its performance-enhancing effects were considered similar to steroids; however, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) subsequently dropped deer antler velvet from its banned list.(4)
"Our over-the counter supplements are scientifically formulated with natural ingredients to deliver maximum benefits," explained Dan Smith of HGH.com. "Clients have praised HGF Max for its 'miracle' fitness and anti-aging effects, including improved stamina, energy, metabolism and muscle tone as well as better skin, hair and nails. Deer antler velvet is also featured in many of our other products, and I would encourage anyone interested in health, fitness and anti-aging to explore our wide selection of HGH supplements online."
Each product page on HGH.com lists benefits, ingredients, reviews and other resources to help customers make informed decisions regarding the most appropriate products for their needs. Ben Lee is among those who shared testimonials on HGF Max. After two months of use, he reported, "It is working out great. I am getting a youthful appearance, fuller hair and also much faster recovery after a workout."
Another customer, Lawrence Heckathorne, ordered HGF Max to help him regain strength and range of motion following a knee injury. "After taking the product, I noticed a gradual increase in muscle mass in my right leg. My orthopedic surgeon said because of the severity of my injury, I was only going to get back 60% use of my muscles. Today, I am walking backwards and even up and down stairs, which I was told I would never be able to do," he noted. "After a lot of hard work and using HGF Max, I feel stronger at 52 than I did at 30."
