The pituitary gland‚ which is a tiny endocrine gland found in the center of the skull‚ is far more essential to overall health than its small size suggests. This gland is responsible for producing growth hormone (somatotropin)‚ a substance that promotes repair and recovery. Perhaps most importantly‚ growth hormone may help replenish muscles and other tissues during physical exercise and sleep; it may also encourage your body to use fats for energy while discouraging the excessive breakdown of muscle tissue.
A supplement like Pure Encapsulations' Growth Hormone Support contains nutrients and compounds that can help stimulate your pituitary gland's own natural growth hormone production‚ which may be especially helpful as you get older because levels may naturally decline with age. The primary ingredients are two amino acids: ornithine and arginine. The combination may play a role in building lean muscle mass and strength--so you can look and feel better--when combined with a balanced diet and regular training regimen.
Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG) may further support the functioning of your muscles by working to maintain healthy nitrogen balance‚ while also promoting good levels of metabolites (such as polyamine and glutamine) that can support muscle protein. Meanwhile‚ arginine serves as a precursor for protein and growth hormone synthesis. One capsule provides 500 milligrams of arginine HCl and 250 milligrams of OKG.
Take two to four capsules daily on an empty stomach‚ with a glass of water or juice. You can take this supplement one hour before a workout or right before bedtime. At the recommended dosage‚ each 180-capsule bottle of Growth Hormone Support by Pure Encapsulations should last from one-and-a-half to three months.

Overall Rating for Growth Hormone Support - 180 Capsules
from BC, Canada
My doctors had me on and off these throughout my treatment over the past couple of years. They cost me a fortune through him ($110 w/o tax) so it was a huge relief to find them at less than half price through PureFormulas! Highly recommend - dont hesitate to purchase.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
