The Truth about Anti-Aging & HGH

We are at the threshold of a new era, a new age. By this, the authors are not referring to future exploits in space; nor are we thinking of the coming marvels in computers. Rather, what we see before us is much more astounding than almost anything you can imagine and more important.

What lies before us is nothing short of a revolution; a revolution that takes place not in society or in world government, but within our own bodies. We are now at the threshold of halting, and even reversing, the aging process. We are at the point where we can now turn back the clock.

But wherefore do not you a mightier way make war upon this bloody tyrant time, and fortify yourself in your decay with means more blessed than my barren rhyme” - William Shakespeare (lived 52 years)

Turning Back the Clock

In the past we have all been subject to the inevitable creep of aging: the wrinkles, the aches and pains, the battle of the bulge, the loss of vigor, and so on. Now, for the first time, we possess the means of halting these scourges, of halting the aging process itself, and of greatly extending the human life span.

In the past there have been various anti-aging therapies-vitamins, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, etc. And, although many of these therapies may be efficacious in girding our defenses against aging, it is only recently that treatments have been discovered that can help to stop aging in its tracks.

The most recent and most amazing of these involve Human Growth Hormone replacement therapy.

So effective has Human Growth Hormone replacement therapy shown itself to be that once it becomes widely available we may well consider that we have embarked on a new era, a new age. Controversy at the Australian 2000 Olympics demonstrated that Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a powerful fitness enhancer, and with the use of HGH, we are now able to start the process of turning back the clock. For many of us, HGH therapy will likely turn back the clock a decade or two. Add one or two other minor measures, and we can probably make that a gain of two or three decades which will then take us to the future discoveries that will extend our lives still further. And on and on.

The results of HGH replacement therapy are nothing short of astounding. Not only do HGH treatments counter the effects of aging, they are also capable of reversing many of them. Experiments have consistently borne out the favorable results mentioned in the introduction-wrinkles gone or much diminished, fat tissue diminished, muscle mass increased, performance and libido increased in men, libido increased in women-and these are just a few of the positive benefits of this therapy.

“The fountain of youth lies within the cells of each of us,
All you need to do is release it.” Dr. Ronald Klatz

The Modern Miracle

Somatotrophin, or Human Growth Hormone, HGH

Suppose someone were to tell you there was a simple way to:

  • Increase muscle mass and lose fat, without dieting or exercising
  • Increase bone mass and reverse the process leading to osteoporosis.
  • Increase the thickness and elasticity of the skin, and improve skin tone.
  • Improve cardiac function.
  • Improve kidney function.
  • Strengthen the immune system.
  • Recharge sexual desire and performance.
  • Speed the healing of wounds.
  • Lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  • Promote regeneration of aged and weakened organs such as kidneys, liver, heart.
  • Diminish or eliminate wrinkles.
  • Improve cartilage formation in joints.
  • Replenish youthful energy levels, improve aerobic capacity.
  • Achieve better and more restful sleep.
  • Diminish or eliminate cellulite.
  • Regrow hair (in some cases) or reduce the gray.
You would say this was a miracle. You would say that no single substance could do all that. That it was impossible.

And you’d be wrong!

Human Growth Hormone, HGH, has been shown to do all of that. HGH is the modern miracle. It is here now, and it works. The data of the past few decades, particularly the last decade, confirms the amazing, anti-aging effects of HGH. The data continues to amass, further corroborating the previous studies.

What is HGH?

What is this amazing substance, HGH? As its full name suggests, HGH is a hormone. Ernest Starling coined the term “hormone” in his 1905 paper, On the chemical correlation of the functions of the body.

A hormone is a substance made in one part of the body that can affect the activity of cells in another part of the body, sometimes even in a remote part of the body. In a way, hormones are like messengers, carrying a message from a gland, for example, to other cells of the body, instructing them to affect a particular activity. In the case of HGH, as long as the levels are not excessive, the message is all good news.

HGH is produced in the anterior pituitary gland which is located at the base and towards the center of the brain, back in behind the eyes. The pituitary is one of the endocrine glands which means it secretes its “message” directly into the bloodstream.

“Envision HGH as a master key to a building.
The master key not only unlocks the main door, but it
can unlock every other door in the building…By opening
all doors, HGH allows in refreshing, invigorating and
rejuvenating influences that revive each organ in the
body.” - Dr. Edmund Chein

Increasing HGH Levels

By the time we reach the age of 25, the pituitary has already begun to release less HGH into the bloodstream. By age 40, our HGH levels are only about 40% of what they were in our prime, around age 20. Since the evidence strongly indicates that these lower levels of HGH play an integral part in the aging process and that elevating these levels of HGH back to where they were in our younger years can offset the effects of aging, the trick is to do that-to raise the levels of HGH.

Studies have shown that injections of HGH do that very effectively. However, this method of treatment has a number of drawbacks. For one thing, injections are very expensive, costing anywhere from hundreds of dollars to a few thousand dollars per month, depending on the individual’s requirement. Also, the injections are generally carried out in a clinical or hospital setting by medical personnel and require considerable testing and monitoring to keep the proper dosages on track to avoid side effects. This is necessary because when HGH is delivered to the bloodstream by injection, the feedback loop that keeps the HGH levels in the normal range is bypassed, and it is largely when the levels of HGH are raised artificially high that problems tend to occur.

The reason HGH cannot be taken orally as a pill or capsule is that HGH is a large protein. Inside the stomach and intestines we produce enzymes that break HGH down into its component amino acids, just as they would do with a nice steak or bowl of cottage cheese, or any other foodstuff rich in protein.

Also, because of the large size of the HGH molecule, it cannot be absorbed through the skin. Some preparations of HGH have been produced for absorption into the bloodstream through vessels under the tongue, but this method of delivery also has drawbacks, conferring results that are unreliable.

…And this brings us to secretogogues.

“The overall deterioration that comes with
growing old is not inevitable. We now realize that some
aspects of it can be prevented or reversed.”
- Dr. Daniel Rudman

A secretogogue is a substance, chemical, or nutrient which will by its nature encourage a gland to release a hormone. The consequences of achieving this with HGH, of course, are raised levels of HGH in the body.

As we go into middle age and beyond, the pituitary does not stop producing HGH, it just releases less of it into the bloodstream. A particular style of secretogogue can trigger the release of HGH and in this way is able to bring about higher HGH levels than were occurring previously.

This means for a forty year old, whose HGH levels have been on the decrease for about twenty years, a secretogogue can raise the concentration of HGH in the bloodstream to a more youthful level. In turn, this affords the possibility of halting much of the aging process and possibly even reversing some of it.

Because secretogogues bring about the release of HGH from the body’s own pituitary, at the body’s own rate, the levels of HGH remain subject to governance by the hypothalamus and its feedback loop. Consequently, there is little or no possibility of artificially raising the serum levels of HGH to anything above normal resulting in little or no possibility of bringing on serious side effects.

Another advantage to using secretogogues to achieve elevated HGH levels is that the cost of secretogogues is a fraction of that of injections. Also, there are no needles involved, and secretogogues can be taken at home without a medical presence on hand. Finally, because secretogogues are so safe, there is little monitoring required. In short, secretogogues are presently the safest, handiest and most cost effective means of elevating HGH levels in the body.

Amino Acids

There are a number of substances or agents that act as secretogogues. Some of the most effective and most commonly used are amino acids. Amino acids, we will recall, are the building blocks of protein. Of the twenty-one amino acids needed as part of our physiological requirements, nine of them our bodies cannot make on their own and must be supplied through diet.

Many of the amino acids that serve as HGH releasers have a synergistic effect when used in combination. Preparations of secretogogues that contain a number of amino acids are frequently referred to as amino acid stacks, the term “stack” having been borrowed from the weightlifting community, where it was used to signify a number of preparations used in conjunction with one another. The recent ability to produce crystalline free-form amino acids at relatively low cost has brought about a revolution in secretogogue technology.

However, many marketed HGH releasers are ineffective. To be effective HGH releasers, specific combinations and amounts of amino acid salts are required.

“The time has come when scientific truth must cease to be the property of the few-when it must be woven into the common life of the world.”

Asimov’s Book of Science and Nature Quotations, by Jason Shulman & Isaac Asimov, 1988.

What are the ingredients in the SomaLife gHP Youth Formula?

The ingredients are the purest free form crystalline amino acids consisting of L-Lysine, L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Glutamine, Glycine, Leucine, Iso-Leucine, and Valine. Magnesium stearate is a lubricant used in minute quantities to assist the encapsulation process of the amino acids.

The SomaLife Patent

SomaLife International was granted a patent on a combination of amino acids which were developed to support and encourage the pituitary gland in its secretion of the body’s own human growth hormone. There is no other patent of this kind anywhere else in the world.

SomaLife gHP Youth Formula is considered the safest product on the market because its support of HGH secretion is controlled by the individual’s own body and therefore the pituitary always secretes the exact amount the body needs; never too much and never too little.

SomaLife International Inc. is a nutraceutical research and development company founded in 1998. In reality SomaLife began some 30 years ago with medical research that reached well beyond the main stream.

Research by MDs, PhDs, Biochemists, Pathologists, Performance nutritionists, Veterinarians and Board Certified Anti-aging physicians continues to bring cutting edge science and technology to the field of Anti-aging and Longevity.

The journey of SomaLife began with the foundation of International Health and Longevity Centers, an organization that combines the very best of conventional and alternative health care. Their goal is to “minimize intervention by prevention”. SomaLife continues to be directed by professional health care providers and scientists with ongoing research on the topic of health and longevity.
