Does SeroVital-HGH Really Work?
You may have seen recent commercials or magazine headlines promoting SeroVital-HGH, with claims that it can make you look younger by reducing the appearance of wrinkles; to make you stronger & increase lean muscle mass; reduced body fat; increase energy; improve mood; and heightened sex drive. The ads claim that SeroVital-HGH can make you look DECADES, not years, younger! Any one of those benefits could make the biggest doubter go out and buy it right away! But, does SeroVital hgh really work?
SeroVital-hgh is an oral anti-aging liquid concentrate, sold by SanMedica International™, that’s claimed to contain a special blend of amino acids that can naturally increase human growth hormone (HGH) levels within your body by 682%. Up until now, the only way to increase HGH levels was by injecting synthetic HGH into the body, which can run up to $1500 per month. SeroVital-hgh should be used in addition with maintaining a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and sensible exercise regimen, for full benefits. For proper absorption, SeroVital-hgh needs to be taken on an empty stomach, with 2 hours before your next meal or after your last meal.
What Is HGH?
HGH is a single chain peptide hormone that’s manufactured in the pituitary gland found in the brain. It’s released into the bloodstream and travels throughout the body. It passes into your fat cells and can actually cause them to shrink. It enters your muscle cells, stimulating lean muscle growth so you look more tight and toned, even if you haven’t been working out. When it reaches the skin it maintains healthy blood flow, ramps up collagen production and strengthens the underlying substructure of the skin’s critical architecture, keeping your skin firm, tight and smooth.
Low HGH levels cause erratic sleep patterns, bone loss, increased body fat and decreased muscle mass, strength and mental function.
Even though our bodies do manufacture HGH, our levels begin to decline by 50% every 7 years, after age 18-25. Until recently, most thought the best way to increase our HGH levels was through expensive prescription injections (costs can run as high as $1500 per month). In addition to their high cost, these synthetic HGH injections are also extremely controversial, because some experts fear that introducing synthetic HGH into the body may upset the natural production of HGH.
There are also some health risks with repeated use of HGH injections, such as joint swelling and pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and an increased risk of diabetes. However, since SeroVital-hgh doesn’t contain any HGH, the possibility of experiencing these types of side effects might be extraordinarily rare.

Since Serovital-hgh is a “proprietary blend”, we aren’t told the exact amount of each ingredient contained within the supplement.
Some other possible side effects that have been reported include:

Can SeroVital-HGH Really Increase My HGH Levels?
Bottom line, it’s unclear. I couldn’t find anything in my research that came out and said either way. There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot written about the correlation between the two. Even the manufacturer’s studies say that while SeroVital-HGH can increase HGH levels 120 minutes after administration, it is unclear whether HGH changes persist over a longer duration or have other positive effects and is being further examined.
According to Quack Watch, the short answer is, no. You can read for yourself.
What Are People Saying About SeroVital-HGH?
From all the comments from people around the globe that have tried SeroVital-HGH, I found it to be about a 50/50 satisfaction rate. Many of the people claim to have almost immediate positive results, especially with increased energy levels, better moods and sleeping better at night. Just as many people are saying that they saw absolutely no benefits or results.
There were more than a few 50+ women that complained of having break through menstrual bleeding after not having a period for a year or more. And, several complaints of having hot flashes after using SeroVital-HGH for several weeks.
Another common complaint among both men and women, were stomach issues, like cramps, gas and nausea. Some people felt relief of these symptoms by drinking extra water.

Natural Alternatives To SeroVital-HGH
Still not sure about taking SeroVital-HGH? Well, you’d be smart to question it and to continue researching for yourself. In the meantime, here are a few ways to increase your HGH levels naturally:
- Take in only low-glycemic or slow-digesting carbohydrates throughout the day. Low-glycemic examples are apples, pears, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, brown rice or wheat pasta. Simple sugars that are high-glycemic spike insulin levels. Not only does this lead to body-fat storage, but it severely blunts the release of growth hormone.
- Perform weight-training intensely with high repetitions. The burn you will feel in your muscles is the build-up of lactic acid. Lactic acid signals our bodies to produce more growth hormone. Try a range between 12 and 30 repetitions to reach the lactic threshold.
- Take the amino acids L-arginine and L-lysine together before exercise and sleep. The combination of these has shown to increase growth hormone production by up to 700 percent. As little as a gram will do, but take 3 to 5 grams for optimal results.
- Take 0.5 to 5 mg of melatonin before bed. A hormone that governs over sleep patterns, melatonin has been shown to increase growth hormone levels by up to 157 percent.
- Take 1.5 to 3 g of GABA immediately before bed. GABA, or gamma aminobutyric acid, has been shown to increase growth hormone production by 200 percent.
- Take 2 to 10 g of glutamine after a workout or before bed. As little as 2 g can significantly boost HGH levels.
- Get adequate sleep to ensure high growth hormone levels. Most of our HGH is produced in the first few hours of sleep.
- Consume a high-protein, low-carbohydrate snack before going to bed. The amino acids will help to boost HGH, while avoiding too many carbs will keep insulin at bay so that it cannot inhibit growth hormone production.
As usual, I choose the natural approach. There are too many uncertainties and limited research data available to come to a reasonable conclusion about taking SeroVital-HGH and whether or not it really works. There are no real statistics available that can say if taking SeroVital-HGH will make you look younger or not. It’s one of those things that sounds too good to be true. I’ve learned to live by that rule and always trust my instincts.
That being said, I’ve provided enough info, here for you to form your own opinion. Just promise that if you do decide to give it a try, please consult with your doctor first, and to search for other reviews to compare notes.
