....Do Herbs Boost Growth Hormone? Or are They Worthless for GH?....
Real, pharmaceutical-grade human growth hormone (HGH) is hard to obtain in certain countries. Therefore, some people look for alternative sources to boost their growth hormone (GH) level and get benefits like fat loss, quality sleep, more IGF-1 production, and a youthful appearance.
Many turn to HGH supplements, which are completely worthless, because the growth hormone molecule can't be delivered through the nose (spray) or stomach (pill). This drug must instead be delivered through injection, with an authentic brand like Juvetrope.
Given that HGH supplements don’t work, some people use herbs to naturally increase their GH level. But is this a suitable way to boost your growth hormone? Find out as I cover the effectiveness of herbs that are widely thought to increase GH.
Ginkgo biloba is an herb that grows on older spice trees. Supplement companies sell a standardized ginkgo biloba extract (GBE) to customers. A study appearing in PNAS shows that this extract can upregulate the expression of growth hormone and give you a boost in this area (1).
Ginkgo biloba can also provide other benefits, including improved circulation to the brain, better memory, and healing effects. Drawbacks to this herb include medical complications for pregnant women or anybody with a history of blood clotting.
Ginseng is a famous Chinese herb that's widely sold by supplement retailers across the world. Research appearing in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research concludes that ginseng doesn't provide a measurable increase in growth hormone (2).
But this fleshy root does offer several other benefits, including anti-clotting, endurance, sugar-level regulation, antioxidation, and a stronger immune system. Side effects can include headaches, diarrhea, insomnia, nose bleeds, and blood pressure problems.
Mucuna pruriens, also known as velvet bean or "cow itch," is a vine that can grow up to 50 feet long. Researchers believe that this herb may have a positive effect on GH production.
It can also boost testosterone, help treat Parkinson's disease, and rid the body of damaging free radicals. Mucuna pruirens’ potential side effects include headaches, insomnia, nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, and sleeplessness.
Astragalus (Yellow Leader)
Astragalus is a Chinese plant that's also known as "huang qi," or "yellow leader" when translated to English. Certain extracts of yellow leader have been shown to stimulate HGH production (4).
Other benefits of astragalus include an improved immune system, anti-aging benefits, better digestion, stress reduction, and improved heart health. Side effects include blood sugar problems, diarrhea, and hypertension.
Final Thoughts on Herbs that Increase Growth Hormone....
Research indicates that ginkgo biloba, mucuna pruirens, and astragalus are three herbs that can boost your GH production. This is certainly a nice bonus if you want to use these compounds for their other health perks. But the growth hormone-related benefits that you receive from these herbs will be small.
Even the benefits that you gain from taking a legitimate HGH brand like Juvetrope aren't highly noticeable right away. Instead, you should use this drug for at least a couple months to experience serious fat loss, lean mass gains, anti-aging, and improved athletic performance.
Research shows that HGH is even better at producing fat-loss results than anabolic steroids (5). But this is a slow-acting drug that doesn't deliver immediate, explosive results like steroids. I assure you that the patience is well worth it when using real HGH.
But you're going to need extreme patience if you expect any serious results from herbs.
Herbs are nice, all-around health supplements. They’re not, however, intended for those who mainly want GH benefits. If you want to boost your growth hormone, the best option for doing so is taking HGH.
