What You Should Know
Life is a roller coaster. We are born with fewer hormones than we have when we are 20 and end life with around the same amount of hormones we had when we were infants. Along the way estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH) rise to their peak and then steadily decline as we age. When the body reaches around 60 years of age, the HGH levels can be just ¼ what they were at the age of 20. HGH is released by the pituitary gland. There are many supplements that claim to increase HGH, but none are proven to do any such thing. Even prescription injections of HGH may not have some of the effects claimed on the GHR-15 website.
List of Ingredients
Anterior Pituitary – Bovine Source, Hypothalamus, Amino Acid Blend, Phytosterol Complex – Beta Sitosterol, Campestrol, Stigmasterol, Soy Phosphatide Complex – Phytosterol Serene, Phytosterol Choline, Phytosterol Ethanolamine, Phytosterolinositol, Panax Ginseng.
GHR-15 claims users WILL look younger, feel younger and lose more fat. Among the other claims GHR-15 lists as benefits of the supplement are improved mood, hair growth and return of natural hair color. This is a supplement and thus the company manufacturing the product should know these claims cannot be legally made. The Food and Drug Administration watches supplement companies closely and these statements, only a few among a long list, could likely result in a lawsuit. The creator of the GHR-15 supplement is Dr. Don E. Johnson. Affiliates sell the product on business websites as far as we can tell. There is no official website for Dr. Johnson.
Anterior Pituitary – Bovine Source appears to be pituitary gland material for a cow. Commonly organs are ground up and used in supplements for the claimed effects, but the digestive system breaks down the tissue and nothing happens in the body. Experts are quite certain that the body would recognize the fact that the tissue is from a cow and attack it anyway. Hypothalamus is in the same boat as the Anterior Pituitary – Bovine Source.
The amino acid blend is a healthy push for someone choosing a bodybuilding lifestyle, but most amino acids are derived from food or naturally synthesized in the body. Additional amino acids will not provide the benefits listed for GHR-15.
The remaining ingredients are phytosterols. Phytosterols are a healthy addition to any supplement and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States recognizes that fact. According to the FDA, phytosterols may lower the risk of heart disease when taken in appropriate quantities.
GHR-15 sells for $32.79 on some websites but the list price is $79.95 so the price may vary from one website to the next.
- Phytosterols may reduce the risk of heart disease.
- None of the claims on the GHR-15 website are true.
This is not a product a dieter or any other user should trust. The supplement is created from cow parts that will be digested in the body not transformed into some source of longevity and perfect health.
