Despite the fact that human growth hormone (hGH) is highly controversial, an hGH-boosting product called SeroVital-hgh caused quite a stir at The American Academy of Dermatology's prestigious 72nd Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Why? Because human growth hormone is no longer just for men. Now that women are discovering its rejuvenating benefits, hGH seems to be going mainstream.
Everyone from soccer moms to Hollywood A-Listers have been visiting some of the most expensive clinics in the world for controversial hGH injections due to growth hormone's touted ability to reduce wrinkles, tighten saggy skin, decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass, boost energy, rev-up sex drive, and make you look and feel decades — not years, but DECADES — younger.

It seems everyone's been talking about hGH. It's been featured everywhere from The Today Show, CNN, and Fox News to The Dr. Oz Show, Vanity Fair, Shape, and more. And SeroVital-hgh itself has already broken records in Parade magazine, been featured in Shape, on Radar Online and New York Live, and been touted by celebrity makeup artists. Even the United States Patent Office has added to the SeroVital explosion by issuing U.S. Pat. No. 8,551,542 (for Methods and Compositions for Increasing Growth Hormones) protecting the SeroVital formula from imitators.
So just what is this hormone that's raising so much interest at one of the most talked about dermatology conferences in the United States? Human growth hormone is a single chain peptide hormone that's manufactured deep within the brain... in the pituitary gland. It's released into the bloodstream and travels throughout the body. It passes into your fat cells and can actually cause them to shrink. It enters your muscle cells, stimulating lean muscle growth so you look more tight and toned, even if you haven't been working out. When it reaches the skin it maintains healthy blood flow, ramps up collagen production and strengthens the underlying substructure of the skin's critical architecture, keeping your skin firm, tight and smooth, which is why so many experts call hGH the "youth" hormone... and why some believe it's the key to combating aging.
The problem is that while our bodies do manufacture hGH, our levels begin to decline rapidly as we age, and until recently most thought the best way to increase our hGH levels was through expensive prescription injections (costs can run as high as $1500 per month). In addition to their high cost, these synthetic hGH injections are also extremely controversial, because some experts fear that introducing synthetic hGH into the body may upset the natural production of hGH.
"That's what makes SeroVital so revolutionary," says Dr. Amy Heaton, PhD, Director of Scientific Affairs for SanMedica International, SeroVital's distributor. "Rather than introducing synthetic hGH into the body like the injections do, SeroVital raises the body's own, natural levels of human growth hormone by promoting pituitary health, the gland that manufactures hGH. Many of the dermatology experts at the AAD conference have understood for years what a significant effect hGH may have on skin health. In fact, a new study showing a rational link between hGH, collagen levels and younger-looking skin has helped change the attitude of many dermatologists toward the rising popularity of growth hormone therapy. Many of the experts at the AAD conference were excited to learn that SeroVital can not only provide the women (and men!) in their care with a more affordable way to raise their hGH levels, but can offer a clinically validated way to achieve this naturally, without injections."
SeroVital's research began making headlines when it was first presented at The Obesity Society's Annual Scientific Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, where a group of some of the world's most renowned researchers revealed that this tiny little pill was actually capable of increasing mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels... by an astounding 682%.
And although SanMedica is enjoying all the popular media attention it's received, the company was excited to get back to its research roots by taking SeroVital to the Dermatology Conference. "We were thrilled to have the opportunity to share our research with the highly respected group of dermatologists who attended the conference," says Dr. Heaton. "The research behind SeroVital is not only revolutionary because it proves there's an oral compound capable of increasing growth hormone levels naturally — without synthetic injections — but also because it was the first clinical trial of its kind to test a compound's growth hormone boosting effects not just on young males, but on both men and women across an appropriately wide age range. We think it's important to let women's health experts, including dermatologists, know just how well women responded to the SeroVital complex."
In addition to a study on SeroVital's ability to increase mean hGH levels by 682%, SanMedica also recently released studies analyzing its effects on endurance and sleep. "The results of our pilot study on endurance showed that after two weeks of daily supplementation with SeroVital, the study subjects' VO2max (the established measure of endurance) significantly increased. This is an important result because it shows that certain positive benefits of synthetic hGH injections can be achieved with use of SeroVital alone," Dr. Heaton explains. "And the preliminary results of our pilot study investigating SeroVital's direct effects on parameters of sleep efficiency showed that in subjects taking SeroVital prior to bedtime for twenty consecutive days, both time to fall asleep and time awake in the night decreased exponentially. These results make sense because natural hGH levels are known to be highest in the first half of sleep and play an important role in our ability to reach deep stages of slow wave sleep — the stages that we are less able to attain as we age."
Despite all the research behind SeroVital-hgh, some skeptics are saying it sounds too good to be true. So is there a catch? Well, there are three. First, as with hGH injections, SeroVital is not a "magic bullet" but one part of a healthy lifestyle choice including a sensible diet and exercise regimen.
Second, for proper absorption, you have to take SeroVital on an empty stomach. That means you either have to take it first thing in the morning and then not eat anything for two hours, or take it at night, at least two hours after your last meal... before you go to bed.
And last but not least, while SeroVital is far less expensive than prescription hGH injections, it's still not cheap… SeroVital will cost you about $100 a month. But is it worth it? To most people, anything that may reduce wrinkles, tighten saggy skin, decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass, strengthen bones, and boost mood, while giving you plenty of energy and improving sex drive, is a no-brainer. However, make no mistake about it, the "established" medical community (and of course they know everything) would say its benefits are largely anecdotal, and based on research that's preliminary. But there's no denying that something that has a chance of making you look and feel decades, not years, but DECADES younger, is... at the very least... irresistible.
