Introduction of SeroVital HGH
SeroVital is an anti-aging concentrate that comes in liquid form and it is consumed orally.
The manufacturer claims that this product has a special mix of amino acids that help the human body to naturally boost the level of HGH(human growth hormone) by a whopping 682%.
This huge increase, in turn, helps the body fight better with the effects of aging(fewer wrinkles, less loose skin on the body, etc.).
Besides helping with the anti-aging process it can also help with the creation of lean muscle mass, lowering of body fat, increased levels of energy, improving the mood of the users, and a higher desire for sex. According to the official website of SeroVital, this is possible thanks to the 6 main ingredients.
Before SeroVital HGH, the manufacturer claimed that the only effective way of boosting the HGH levels in the body was by receiving injections from a doctor. But now, over 30 years later, after long and detailed research, they claim that they have finally found an effective way to boost your HGH levels without an injection. A simple oral consumption is all that it takes now!
SeroVital HGH is a dietary hormone supplement manufactured by SanMedica International. The product contains Japanese Catnip and amino acids. After Dr. Oz featured SeroVital on his show the sales of the product increased dramatically.
The manufacturer claims that SeroVital can:
Let's Talk About HGH, What is HGH?
If you go to WebMD, HGH or the human growth hormone is a naturally occurring hormone. Our pituitary gland releases it and HGH is important for many functions of the human organism. It helps with the regulation of our growth when we are young and that includes muscles and bones, it helps with our metabolism especially with sugar and fats, it regulates our body fluids. And in addition to all that it helps adults with muscle growth and it can make our skin firmer. Now the problem comes when we get a little older. When we come into a certain age our bodies gradually create less HGH. This results in clearer signs of aging.
A big number of women and men have been taking HGH injections at their doctor’s office in order to fight the unflattering effects of Father Time. Taking injections of HGH has very similar effects to SeroVital HGH. With injections, you are receiving synthetic human growth hormone, while with SeroVital HGH you are stimulating your body to produce it. SeroVital itself does not contain any HGH, but it does contain crucial amino acids that stimulate our bodies to produce more of HGH.
Have You Heard About Secretagogue?
This scientific term which refers to a compound or a chemical that stimulates your body to secrete something else. SeroVital is a product that is a secretagogue. The formula contains herbs and amino acids that stimulate the body to secrete more of HGH.
HGH and HCG are NOT the same!
HCG is a pregnancy hormone and its full name is human Chorionic Gonadotropin. We already explained what HGH is. But sometimes people confuse them because sometimes HCG is used for weight loss.
Ingredients of SeroVital
SeroVital can be purchased in powder, pill or liquid form. It is also available as an anti-aging facial cream or a serum fro wrinkles. The main focus is on SeroVital though.
The most important ingredients are a herb and 5 different amino acids:
Scientists still do not know a lot about this ingredient. It is a derivative glutamic acid. They are studying the effect this amino acid has on the brain currently. Many think that it helps with the transport of amino acids that are dependent on sodium. However, all the studies that have been done so far are inconclusive. And some studies that were done on animals even suggest that it might be harmful.
Some scientists say that Oxo-Proline might cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress means that there is an imbalance in the body between the production of reactive oxygen and the body’s ability to get rid of the intermediates in the process. This is what some of the studies imply. But the data gathered so far is insufficient to make a conclusive statement.
This amino is quite often used for the treatment of acetaminophen poisoning. It is also used to help and recover damaged kidneys and liver. The body breaks it down into a powerful antioxidant called glutathione. Glutathione fights free radicals in the body and protects cells from oxidative stress. Cysteine can help with any negative effects that might come from Oxo-Proline.
This amino acid helps with the removal of extra ammonia which the body creates during exercise. It lowers the soreness of muscles and helps people to work out harder and longer. The body turns glutamine into glutamate, and when it is combined with arginine and exercise it can boost the level of HGH.
This herb helps with the inhibition of cytokine release. Because of that, it can help people with allergies. Studies have shown that histamine and arginine work together to regulate HGH in the body. But even though there are implications the current studies do not have enough data to claim that this is proven beyond doubt.
These ingredients (first five) that we have talked about are essential amino acids, which means that our bodies produce them in very small amounts or not at all.It is known that supplements that are rich with amino acids can raise the level of HGH, but only if the dose is very high, probably higher than the dose contained in SeroVital.
The following products can also boost the level of HGH but only short-term. Other than aforementioned ingredients they also contain:
Benefits of Using SeroVital
Because it increases the level of HGH in the body, SeroVital has many benefits according to the official website.
The following benefits can manifest in both men and women;
But on the other hand, the fine print says that they are unsure whether the increase in HGH or other benefits will be present for a long period of time or not. Simply put, this means that there is an increase in HGH, yes. But whether there will be any other benefits they cannot claim with certainty. It is important to note that increased HGH in the body does not automatically mean that there will be other benefits as well.
About Potential Side Effects
Even though you will most likely not experience anything more severe than an upset digestive tract, there are some things worth mentioning.
WebMD says that L-arginine can is some rare cases cause; allergy, hypotension, inflammation of airways and for people that have asthma it some rare cases it might make it worse. It also says that sometimes Cysteine might cause; rash, headache, hypotension, fever, etc. Especially if taken in high doses. The same goes for Japanese Catnip, in high doses, it can cause liver damage.
It is also worth noting that oxo-proline is studied, but the studies have not given any conclusive findings. Some say that it can have a positive and some say that it can have a negative effect. So there might be some unforeseen side effects stemming from it.
HGH supplementation and therapy have many medical uses; treating kidneys, short bowel, Prader-Willi disease, muscle atrophy, etc. So when a doctor prescribes HGH to a patient they are very careful with the dose, and that monitoring of the dosage can prevent long-term side-effects.
Now, people that inject themselves with HGH for a prolonged period, like bodybuilders, a variety of scary side-effects might manifest; pain in the joints, nerves, and muscles, edema, numbness of the skin, carpal tunnel, high levels of cholesterol, and in the worst cases higher probability of cancer.
When used properly arginine is quite safe, but when taken in doses that are too high it can cause; diarrhea, allergy, bloating, gout, abdominal pain. hypotension, inflammation of airways. But we do not think that SeroVital contains doses of arginine that are too much. But just in case it is always better to start using small doses and see how your body reacts.
For People who Take Medication on a Regular Basis
We think that SeroVital is a very safe product. The doses of ingredients are not too high and if some side-effects occur they will most likely be mild and short-term while your body becomes accustomed to SeroVital. But some people should contact their physician just to 100% sure that it is safe for them:
After carefully looking into SeroVital we think that it is a perfectly safe product, but you should take precautions just in case. Our bodies are different and they react differently and because of that we say; even if you are completely healthy a short consult with a medical professional will not do you any harm.
How to Take SeroVital
SeroVital should be consumed before breakfast or after dinner (after the last meal). You shouldn’t eat for about 2 hours after taking the pill. That would be ideal because the amino acids in your meals might interfere with the amino acids in the pill.
You should take 4 pills in 24 hours, maximum. Do not go over that, we already talked about doses that are too high!
Do I Still Have to Exercise and Diet?
Well, yes! SeroVital can increase the level of HGH in your body, but if you lead a lifestyle that is not good for you, nothing can compensate for that! The production of HGH is at its highest when people are on a good diet plan, when people exercise and when people sleep well enough! Your life does not have to be perfect but you should put in some effort into your well-being in order to allow SeroVital to work its magic.
About People's Comments on SeroVital?
We could not find any testimonials on the official website when we’re doing our research, we found them on other websites like GNC.com and Ulta.com. The average rating is 4 out 5 stars and 3.5 stars on Amazon.com.
Some people have reported positive results and some have complained. Common complaints were about it not working, price and side-effects like; trouble sleeping, bloating, joint pain and redness of the skin.
About the Manufacturer
SeroVital is manufacture by SanMedica International. They are located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The better business Beraue gave the company rating A, and the only complaints they received were about refunds or the difficulty of getting one.
Kevin James Bennett, a famous makeup artist, highly recommends SeroVital.
About the Results of Using SeroVital
There is no magic when it comes to male enhancement pills or any other pills for that matter. That being said SeroVital formula can boost the production of HGH, especially if you eat well and exercise. It has the rating of 4/5 stars on 2 review websites and 3.5 on Amazon.com which is usually a good sign. Some people have reported their satisfaction other have reported the opposite.
So it probably won’t work for everyone, and exercise and eating well will maximize its effectiveness. If you want to try it we recommend using it for a prolonged period of time and combine it with the aforementioned diet and exercise in order to get all that you can from the product.
We do not recommend using it for a short period of time as this will limit the possibility of experiencing all that this product offers.
We have some reservations about SeroVital, but we have not tried it for ourselves, so our picture is not complete. Like we said before some people were happy with SeroVital others were not. And this can all be seen and found easily. So if you are thinking about buying it follow our advice to get all that you can from it! Diet, exercise, sleep well and use it for a prolonged period of time!
Final Words on HGH and SeroVital
The pituitary gland produces HGH. It has a very important role with growth and development, muscle and bone growth, metabolism and it plays a big role in repairing the cells. It can give us extra strength and boost our physical performance. It also speeds up the muscle recovery after strenuous physical activities.
It is closely related to the level of body fat. People with high body fat level usually have a low level of HGH. It can be naturally increased by weight loss.
HGH naturally increases after sleep and after working out. It gradually decreases in the body as we grow older, and because of that people try to supplement it in order to help the combat signs of aging.
The biggest claim that SeroVital makes is that it can boost the natural creation of HGH in the body without the injections. The claim is that it can increase the level of HGH by up to 682% in a matter of hours after taking the first pill. They also say that this was calculated among men and women of different ages and different BMI’s. This number comes from a study that they have conducted. The sample size was 12 men and 4 women which were all around 30 years old. So this is the only study done on this topic and there are no others that can prove or disprove their claim.
So to sum up everything shortly, we have some reservations about the product, but we haven’t tried it out for ourselves. The good things about the product are; it comes from a trustworthy manufacturer, it does have solid ratings on different websites, not stellar but solid. So it might not work for everyone, but it may be worth a try. Also if you are not planning on using it for a longer period of time chances are you will not be happy with your purchase. And we just want to reiterate once more time; it is extremely important that you combine SeroVital with a good diet plan, exercise, enough sleep, and usage over a prolonged period.
