HGHUP® was developed, sourced, tested and researched within Applied Nutriceuticals® cGMP-compliant laboratory and manufacturing facility located within the United States. HGHUP® contains ingredients that have been shown to help stimulate natural growth hormone secretion and support male reproductive health with the goal of optimizing the environment to support human growth hormone levels.†
1. Mucuna Pruriens is a herbal extract that is desireable in part due to the fact that it naturally contains concentrations of L-Dopa also known as levodopa, which is a precursor to dopamine. L-Dopa has been suggested to support a rise in natural GH levels in human subjects when ingested orally. L-Dopa can readily cross the blood brain barrier.†1
2. Huperzine-A inhibits the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine. Increased Acetylcholine levels allow GH levels to remain elevated instead of being reduced by somatostatin. †2-3
3. L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate is an amino acid derived from both L-lysine and L-methionine that supports the mechanisms for better fat metabolism. It accomplishes this by transferring fatty acids to the mitochondria of the cell where they may be utilized to produce energy which can be used for burning fat.†4
