Dr Oz: HGH: Human Growth Hormone: The Fountain Of Youth?

Dr Oz: HGH Shots Pros vs Cons

In this segment, Dr Oz examined the risks of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Injections into your body.  Some health professionals consider HGH The Fountain of Youth, while other health professionals believe the shot could actually cause more damage than good.

The Human Growth Hormone comes from the middle of the brain (the pituitary gland).  Our bodies need the growth hormone to grow and maintain tissue.  It peaks during the adolescent years, decreasess in our mid-twenties, and continues to decline as we age.  Some people believe that boosting HGH levels will make you feel younger and live longer.  However, others believe the boost interferes with our bodies natural functions and may even shorten life.

    Hi, I’m your usual 84 year old health nut, taking vitamins, minerals and amino-acids. I take no prescription drugs. My Atria have been in continuous fibrillation for about 10 years.

    About 2 months ago, I started taking a mixture of equal amounts of Arginine Pyroglutamate and Lysine – 2.4 grams before sleep. It is said to release HGH. Observed increases in my vigor and sense of well-being are remarkable.

    Of course, I am not doing a controlled scientific experiment. There are other significant variables. If you wish, I will send more info or come to your show..

    Thank you for discussing unusual practices in a responsible manner.
