The ingredients in GenF20 Plus

By | June 7, 2017

The ingredients in GenF20 Plus are all natural-based. All the ingredients are chosen for their ability to influence the pituitary gland in some way, as in to incite it to release more growth hormone or HGH. Most of the ingredients are amino acids that act as HGH releasing agents, but there are also ingredients that contain substances that directly impart a “growth” effect on the body.

Let’s look at these ingredients:

amino acid structure

General structure of an amino acid

Arginine: This is the most commonly used amino acid that has long been used in medical labs to stimulate HGH release. On its own, it is powerful, but in conjunction with other amino acids, even more so.

Lycine: Lycine is another one of those amino acids that work well with arginine. It is often combined with other amino acids in a “stack”. Bodybuilders should be familiar with this term. Amino acid stacks are routinely taken to boost muscle growth.

Glutamine: Another one of the main amino acids and is essential for the growth and maintenance of cells, tissues, and organs. It is the most abundant amino acid in the body.

Glycine: Glycine is a non-essential amino acid, but is needed for the improvement of blood sugar control. Blood sugar level is one of the inhibiting factors for HGH release, and therefore, taking glycine can only be helpful. It also has a role in the synthesis of other amino acids in the body.

deer antler velvet

Deer velvet antler from the growing antlers of deer.

Tyrosine: This amino acid is essential for the production of Thyroxine in the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is a key element in metabolism, and that is why a healthy thyroid gland is so important.

Valine: This branched chain amino acid cannot be produced in the body, and therefore needs to be obtained from external sources. It is useful for energy uptake in the muscles.

Ornithine: Ornithine is frequently combined with arginine, lysine, and glutamine to make a basic amino acid stack. It increases the effect of arginine on the pituitary.

GABA: GABA or Gamma-Aminobutryic Acid is another amino acid in the formulation, which is naturally abundant in the nervous system. It is in fact, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means it impedes excitement and has a calming effect. It has been found that GABA stimulates HGH release if taken after physical activity.

Colostrum: Colostrum is the first milk of newborn babies and contains a lot of IGF-1 growth factor, which assists in the growth of the newborn. IGF-1 is also present in our bodies, and was often used as a barometer of HGH levels in the body, until newer methods were adopted.

Deer velvet antler: This is the developing antlers of young male deer, and is also very rich in IGF-1 and other growth factors that help with bone and cartilage tissue development.

astragalus herb

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) herb.

Astragalus: The only herb in the line-up, astragalus was included probably because it is a potent adaptogenic herb which provides all the same benefits like ginseng, but minus the “heat” of ginseng.

Pituitary anterior powder: This powder is I believe of bovine extract, and contains a lot of growth factors and has a homeopathic effect on the pituitary gland, meaning just a little of it ingested stimulates your pituitary to work even better.

Two other nutrients in the formulation that helps it work even better are phosphatidyl choline which acts as an emulsifier and thus aids absorption, and chromium. Chromium helps insulin to metabolize blood sugar more efficiently, and is important because low blood sugar is what aids in HGH release.
