Are Pro-Athletes Cheating with Undetectable "Growth Hormone" Pill?

NEW YORK, Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone knows professional athletes are always looking for something to give them an "edge" over the competition. Anti-doping agencies have had to work overtime to prevent many athletes from gaining an unfair advantage through the use of banned substances like recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) injections. But in September of 2012 at the prestigious Obesity Society's 30th Annual Scientific Meeting, a group of some of the most renowned research experts in the world revealed that a tiny little pill called Growth Factor-9™ from Novex Biotech® was actually capable of increasing mean serum (blood) growth hormone levels… by more than 600%. This proven ability to increase mean hGH levels more than 600% without triggering anti-doping tests is causing such a run on the compound that GNC— Growth Factor-9's exclusive retail distributor—is having trouble keeping it in stock. And now rumors are flying that some big name sports stars are using the pill to increase their hGH levels and "cheat"… without getting caught.

The touted ability of synthetic, rhGH injections to increase heart, lung, and muscle function has made it a favorite among many pros and have caused it to be banned by virtually every major governing body in the sporting world. The NFL, one of the biggest sports franchises in the world, agreed to begin testing its players for rhGH in August of 2011, but now — over a year later — still hasn't implemented any testing. Many believe the league is attempting to hold out until a replacement for rhGH injections can be developed.

And it appears they may have held off just long enough. After over 30 years of research, experts have finally developed an oral compound capable of increasing growth hormone levels naturally in the body… without expensive, synthetic injections, and without triggering a positive rhGH test result. In fact, a December 12, 2012 Congressional hearing regarding the NFL and hGH testing made it clear that the increase in hGH levels offered by Growth Factor-9 would not be detectable by anti-doping tests.

Dr. Larry Bowers, Chief Science Officer for the United States Anti-Doping Agency who testified at the hearing, explained that while "The body produces many forms of growth hormone in the pituitary gland," synthetic rhGH injections involve only one form, called 22kD. hGH tests work by flagging people who have abnormally high ratios of 22kdD.

That's what makes Growth Factor-9 so different from banned synthetic rhGH injections. Rather than introducing a synthetic form of hGH into the body, Growth Factor-9 raises human growth hormone levels by encouraging pituitary health. This means there are no abnormally high levels of 22kD, because the increase in hGH comes from the body's natural source… the pituitary gland.

And now many fear Growth Factor-9 is rapidly becoming the "cheat pill" some high-profile professional athletes are looking for to give them all the advantages of increased hGH levels… without the fear of being sanctioned for illegal rhGH use. This could make Growth Factor-9 one of the most highly coveted sports supplements in the sports world… and it just might change professional athletics forever.

So What's the Catch?

Well, there are three. First, as with hGH injections, Growth Factor-9 is not a "magic bullet" but one part of a total program — you still have to eat right and work out.

Second, unlike injections of synthetic growth hormone, the Growth Factor-9 pill needs to be taken on an empty stomach. That means you either have to take it first thing in the morning and then not eat anything for two hours, or take it at night, at least two hours after your last meal... before you go to bed.

And last but not least, while Growth Factor-9 is far less expensive than prescription hGH injections, it's still not cheap… Growth Factor-9 will cost you about $100 a month.

But is it worth it? Cutting fat and building muscle while giving you plenty of energy and improving sex drive should be a no brainer. However, make no mistake about it, the "established" medical community (and, of course, they know everything) would say its benefits are largely anecdotal, with research that's preliminary. But there's no denying that something that has a chance of helping you get in the best shape of your life — without getting caught — is... at the very least... irresistible.

Growth Factor-9 is currently being sold exclusively at GNC. If it's sold out in stores, try buying it directly from Novex Biotech at www.NovexBiotech.com or 1-800-841-5007. Use promo code GFGH at checkout and get free shipping.Ɨ
