Default Should You Take HGH (human growth hormone)?


Should people take hgh? Especially as they get older? Or just eat foods that promote hgh production? Like goji berries? (21 bucks a pound for dried goji berries at HEB)...pretty steep.

I don't think they should, You could try growing your own gogi berry, I did I got some berries from the supermarket and raised some of the seeds they grew allright, but i don't
Think the weather is right for here to fruit properly.

Yes, I certaninly would take HGH if I could afford it...to maintain levels of a 35 year old. Why not? It is an indentical hormone and your body knows exactly what to do with it.

You can grow your own gogi easily, in zone 4 or warmer, so even in quite cold climates. there are several websites that tell you how. I will be trying them next year but Ive never read that they will help with HGH but I might have missed it.

Unless I was guranteed to live an additional 20 years without any pain or suffering, there's no way I'd pay something that high.

Yay!! I love when exercise advocates come on board.
Mark's Daily Apple is one of my fav websites. He has quite an impressive bio!

Thanks Cookie! :kisses:

As I always say, your body is your resume when it comes to diet and fitness.

Chris Kresser and Byron J Richards are a few more of my favorites. Food Renegade is another quality site. No more updates on Junk Food Science, but if you haven't been before there is still a ton of good reference material.

To quote Laurel, publisher of Laurel's Kitchen Cookbook, "Exercise is so important it must be included as a nutrient."

HGH!! Hey, let's not be so hasty to dismiss the benefits of having a "Growth Hormome!" Some of us...need it more than others! (haha).
