Secretagogue Gold: An HGH Review

This is another nutritional supplement from Maximum Performance (MHP) and Dr. Vincent C. Giampapa. We have previously done a review of their natural HGH releaser Secretagogue One.

A secretagogue is any substance that causes the body to naturally release more hormones, so all HGH releasers are secretagogues because they stimulate the pituitary gland to produce higher levels of HGH.

Secretagogue Gold Ingredients

Secretagogue Augmenting Factors
• Glycine
• L-glutamine
• L-tyrosine
• L-citruline
• Alpha GPC
• Pyroglutamic acid
• L-lysine
• Broad bean

Secretagogue Modulating Complex
• Choline
• Inositol
• Milk Thistle extract
• Shitake mushroom extract
• Maitake mushroom extract
• Reishi mushroom extract

Secretagogue Modulating Complex
• Banaba leaf extract
• Alpha lipoic acid
• + Chromium (as chromium dinicotinate glycinate)

Pituitary Support
• Magnesium oxide
• Niacin
• Zinc citrate
• D-calcium pantothenate
• Pyridoxine HCL
• Manganese sulfate
• Thiamin HCL
• Folic acid
• Cyanocobalamin

These are great ingredients in an HGH releaser. The only thing we are worried about is the lack of disclosure of the exact amount of each ingredient. These ingredients are part of a proprietary blend, which means that there is no way to tell for sure if there is enough of the important ingredients to make a difference.

The main difference between Secretagogue One and Secretagogue Gold is that Secretagogue One has anterior pituitary powder and Secretagogue Gold uses Alpha GPC. Alpha GPC is a form of choline that has been clinically proven to release growth hormone. The best option would be a product that contains both anterior pituitary powder and Alpha GPC.

The suggested retail price of Secretagogue Gold is $89.99. However, you can buy it online for $44.00. If you cycle your product based on a five days on and two days off schedule, one box will last for 1 ½ months, making it cost only $30.00. Compared to other diet pills, this is a great deal.

Unfortunately we have to mark the product down because of lack of full disclosure on the amounts of each ingredient in this proprietary formulation.

    You speak of STACKING! Just exactly what is STACKING and the purpose?

  2. hgh truths says:

    We added stacking to our list of posts to write. We will try to have at least a short version done by Wednesday.

    Basically it is the combining of different human growth hormone releasing agents into one hgh supplement.

  3. brian says:

    what is the site i order the secretagogue gold for $40.

  4. hgh truths says:

    Sites are constantly changing their prices. You need to do a search on google or try nextag to find the best current prices to buy hgh.

  5. Rich says:

    Thank you!!!!! I was searching all of the ‘crap’ websites which listed the same products over and over with no real reviews. Until I found this one. Ok so now that I am centering on Secretagogue gold is there a reason I can buy anterior pituitary (75mg) and add it to this product?

    Thanks again for sorting out the truth! Way to go!
    How do we support you?

  6. admin says:

    You are welcome.

    There is no reason you can’t go buy some anterior pituitary and take it also. I would suggest trying the Secretagogue Gold alone first then mix in the pituitary. This is just so you can know how it effects you.

    We will eventually do a few posts on how you can combine some different products together and get higher level results.

    First there are more reviews to post.

    As far as suport goes, any book marking or social media mentions that you feel like doing are greatly appreciated.

  7. Rich says:

    Brian, I don’t want to wear out my welcome. I am going to try secretagogue gold by itself (ordered already). Am I correct that pituitary gland as in RAW PITUITARY CONCENTRATE (BOVINE ORIGIN) is the same as anterior pituitary gland?

  8. admin says:

    The concentrate is a stronger than straight pituitary. There is also a more specific peptide complex but I do not know of any company that sells it on its own.

    Questions are always welcome.

  9. Rich says:

    Brian, is there a gain or loss to increasing the frequency of the dosages? I like to take stuff before my workouts. So should I take a dose (on an empty stomach) at 4 PM. Possibly take it in the morning 2 hrs before I eat breakfast? My thinking is that this is a relatively cheap product to be on if it can actually increase GH production. So I don’ t think that the cost per serving should be a limiting factor. Just the effect per serving. Have any of your testers played with the dosages and noted any effects?

  10. admin says:

    There would be no loss but there should be some gain. How much really depends on you. Age being the biggest factor. The older you are the more the gain because older people are starting from lower growth hormone levels.

    The best time to take the product is at bedtime on an empty stomach. Second best is in the morning at least an hour before eating.

    A minimum of 30 minutes before a workout on an empty stomach would come in third.

    I use value per serving when grading products. This takes into account both effect and price.

    One of my testers is in the middle of a three month cycle and using a product before bedtime and just as he wakes up. Says he is feeling great and getting excellent benefits from his workouts. Age 47.

    I personally have played around with different combinations of dozens ingredients.

    After more information is built into the base posts of this website, I will do some writing about various ideas for different products to take for assorted reasons at varying times of day.

  11. Rich says:

    I am also 50 and researching this pretty heavily. Which is how I got to you. I intend to follow your 47 yr olds pattern. At bedtime and at wakeup. I will chime in here every once and while, both to look for your advice and possible upgrades as well as to provide my anecdote.


  12. admin says:

    The only additional advice I have is that if this is your first time working with hgh supplements, take your time. Just take it once per day for the first month and maybe the whole first three month cycle.

    Be patient. You will end up with better results in the long run.

  13. Jason says:

    While researching HGR for the last two hours and finding only amino acid ingredients in most of the products, your website finally gave me the trusted information I needed to make a decision on which product to purchase. I am a forty one year old weight lifter searching for a non anabolic direction to take to obtain the results I am looking for. Any stacking suggestions would be appreciated.

  14. admin says:

    Since you are commenting here I am going to assume you are planning on buying this product.

    Secretagogue Gold is already a stack. The first suggestion would be to just take it for a month leaving the rest of your routine stable.

    This gives you a base line for developing a program.

    What I have done in the past is add 2 grams of OKG at bedtime three days per week. Just swallow the capsules with the Gold.

    Another thing that I have found effective is a combination of arginine and niacin in a 5 to 1 ratio. Take this 30 minutes before a workout on an empty stomach. Start with 500 mg of arginine to 100 mg niacin. Increase up to 4 times that amount.

    You want straight niacin here not the no flush variety.

    Remember to look at this as a program over time. If you try to just boost your hgh levels in one big shot your body fights back. If you cycle and vary how you are pushing, you end up with better results.

  15. Jason says:

    I already take arginine and glutamine. I will incorporate niacin into my routine. What is OKG? I appreciate the advice you have given so far. Any comments on Acetyl-l-carnitine? Thanks again.

  16. admin says:

    OKG stands for Ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate. Works better than either ornithine or glutamine.

    I associate Acetyl-l-carnitine more with non-stimulant fat loss and antioxidant support.

    Most important part about the arginine and niacin is the timing.

  17. Jason says:

    I have ordered the secretagogue gold and I will
    follow your suggestions and keep you informed of my progress.

  18. Mariane says:

    Thanks for good reviews but gosh it took me time to get to this page. All I was getting were bad reviews.
    Maybe you can arrange your topics in a way we can tell what is top in your recommendation and what is bottom.

    But thanks for your good work.
    For a 52 year old female what would you recommend on top of the secretagogue gold?

  19. Johnny says:

    Is taking MHP Secretagogue Gold any benefit to some one thats not into weight training, just cardio and standard push ups and crunches, I’m 53.

  20. admin says:

    I would put my money on there potentially being a greater benefit to you. People doing the right kind of weight training tend to have higher hgh levels anyway.

    The people who will get the greatest benefit from using Secretagogue Gold or any of the best hgh stacking products, are those that haven’t been exercising enough, are around 50, and have a bit of the middle aged spread starting.

    At 53 and being in decent shape, you should notice better performance and a feeling of greater physical well being in 1 to 4 months.

  21. admin says:


    One problem is that there are so many bad products out there. We have been brainstorming ways to have people find the better reviews faster. We also feel it is important for people to read some of the bad reviews in order to understand the difference.

    I think we are going to start with a page that lists all the reviews. Haven’t quite figured out how we want to mark them.

    Broad sugestions for women are tough. You have a much more fluid hormone cycle.

    The one thing I can definitely recommend is a good antioxidant. Not just the basic Vitamin C.
    Something with Alpha Lipoic acid and COQ10.

    I am also a firm believer in the greens. Spirulina, chlorella, kamut, etc. Just try to find something that hasn’t been mixed with a whole bunch of herbs.

    • Lisa says:

      Excellent advice. I practice naturopathic medicine and think your suggestions were spot on. Staying alkalized is so important!

  22. Nate says:

    Hey i have been reading all sorts of reviews on your site and im thinking this Secretagogue Gold is the best HGH supplement for the cost, but im 19 and mainly focusing on height increase as the main reason for taking HGH. Also i am a competitive basketball player and have great knee pain after games, icing and supplements like glucosamine and MSM have been my main treatment but would HGH help this also?

  23. admin says:

    Secretagogue Gold does top the list of the reviews we have done so far. However, it is pretty much a waste of money for a 19 year old.

    Not a bad health thing just nowhere near the impact a 40 year old, who is deficent in growth hormone, will experience.

    Costco sells a liquid glucosamine, chondriton and MSM product that is the best I have seen. I know people that have seen great results. I think the manufacturers name is Symtec.

    Chlorella might also be helpful. There is a killer liquid version but it is something north of $100 per bottle.

  24. Nate says:

    Thanks Admin, but i am having a difficult time finding a non scam website for HGH products, and if secretagogue gold has one could you pass the link, also thanks for the info on liquid glucosamine that sounds perfect!

  25. admin says:

    The manufacturers website does not contain much info. You can buy Secretagogue Gold from any number of reliable on line retailers such as the Vitamin Shoppe or Vitacost. Yahoo also has some highly rated merchants.

  26. BEAU GESTE says:

    Very happy to have found this site.

    If you build it , the right people will show up.

    To get an incredible boost in energy , you should all try “35% food grade hydrogen peroxide.”

    The best is sold at Guardian of Eden.

    I take 3 to 7 drops a day in a glass of water as a maintenance. I started with one drop per day. You wil notice a big difference within 14 days. of starting. You will need less sleep than before.

    You can all read about the benefits of this product in the book “FLOOD YOUR BODY WITH OXYGEN” by Ed Mccabe.

    If you are into endurance sports, this is the 1 % advantage you will gain to make you finnish 10th instead of 25th in a 40 mile bike race.

    If I try this Secretagogue Gold, it might put me in the top 5 in my next race. Bonne chance.

  27. admin says:

    Glad you like the site. It is nice to be able to make someone happy.

    We have pissed of quite a few people. But, we didn’t build the site for them.

    McCabe’s oxygen concepts have always been intriguing. I’ll let our readers do their own research on the subject.

  28. Sander says:

    I turned 20 on the 10th and like Nate am looking at hgh supplements in order to squeeze out the most I can at the tail end of my growing. The website says that secretagogue gold is for those 35 and older, is it possible I could damage myself or cause negative side effects by taking this? I understand I will not see the marked results an older man will but i want to see if I can stimulate my body to give me that last inch and reach 6’0″. If I were to start taking secretagogue gold would there be any particular guidelines I should follow or other supplements I should take in conjunction given my age? I am interested in hgh supplementation but I am not willing to take it if I could cause any bodily damage later on like cancer or glandular atrophy. At present I have just recently started taking hawthorn extract in order to assist in circulation and Gold Standard whey protein to drink after my workouts. I also drink goji juice in varying amounts daily.

  29. hgh truths says:


    Secretagogue Gold clearly says on the top of the package, ” Advanced Age management System”.

    The chances of you growing taller taking this hgh supplement are very slim.

    The chances of seeing any great workout gains from this hgh releaser are slim.

    The chances of any negative side effects from taking this hgh product are equally slim.

    We just want to make sure that younger people understand that a lot of the marketing hype about these hgh supplements is just that, HYPE.

    That being said, you are an adult. Free to make your own choices. We just want to make sure you do it based on honest information.

    A good thing for everyone to add to a vitamin program is a combination of spirulina and chlorella. Avoid those products that have all kinds of extra herbs thrown in.

    The short term benefits aren’t that huge but you will be thanking me when you turn 50.

  30. Scott says:

    It’s refreshing to come across this site. You are obviously very knowledgeable about the subject.

    I have a few questions:
    This product appears to be a leader, you marked it down for non-disclosure of ingredient amounts, which I tend agree with. But to what extent can the varying ratios and amounts determine the effectiveness of these products?

    So for example, in your opinion, if there are two products, each with identical ingredients but vastly different amounts, would this effect the level to which the products deliver on the same promise?

    And following that, what criteria are you using to rate these products? Is it the extent to which the product adheres to it’s claimed benefits? And if so, how do you measure this? Is it against known clinical trials with the product in question – or just the individual ingredients? Is there an element of anecdotal conclusion involved when issuing your rating?

    Again, thank you for this site, I’m sure you’re more than aware of the difficulty one encounters in researching a subject so vulnerable to Internet scams. I imagine you are ruffling quite a few feathers of the deceitful.

    I shall be submitting this site to social bookmarking sites.


  31. admin says:


    The ratio can make a big difference. Different amino acids require different dosages and some combinations can interfere with each other. Also a gh stack really needs to have at least one of the amino acids to be at or near the minimum amount required if that amino acid was used alone.

    Some of the non amino acids ingredients could also be named on the label but only be present in window dressing amounts.

    The rating is based on a combination of having the right ingredients and the value. We are biased toward the effectiveness for anti-aging as opposed to bodybuilding. Basically most products are just on the beginning of the power scale that most hardcore body builders are looking for.

    There are so few products that are going to be anywhere near their claimed benefits. Most of them are trying to claim the same benefits as injectable hgh. Actually, it is more accurate to say that the are claiming the benefits of prescription hgh as their own.

    I don’t know of a single hgh supplement on the market that has any real, verifiable, clinical trials. There are not even that many real decent studies on the pharmaceuticals.

    So we stick mostly to having the right ingredients. When we find products that look good , we also do some personal testing. There is enough experience around here that a week or two on a product is enough to know if it is working or not.

    The only anecdotal evidence we use is from our guinea pig group and reports from people we know personally.

    Your welcome and all social bookmarking is greatly appreciated.

    A little note to any of the deceitful whose feathers are being ruffled. One of our next steps is going to be using the adsense revenue to have some of the products lab tested. So don’t think just slapping up a product with the right ingredients is going to get you very far.

  32. Scott says:

    Thank you Admin,
    Great idea with the lab testing. I’ll be visiting your site for updates.

  33. Sam says:

    Is there anything wrong with taking this product at 17 years old? Just for the muscle/fat part, not the anti-aging?

  34. Scott J says:

    Hi – thanks for all of these reviews.

    I haven’t found on your site a review on the “Universal GH Stack” product, so wonder if you have any comments on that.

    Also – any comments on the use / effectiveness of these products on endurance athletes – triathletes / runners etc.


  35. admin says:


    I think the lab testing will be lots of fun.


    Nothing wrong with taking it but do not expect big results. You are in the peak zone for natural hgh production and supplements just will not give you a lot of kick. however, the ingredients can’t hurt your overall health.

    Scott J,

    We have a draft of a review for Universal GH Stack. We will post it this week. I’ll shoot for tomorrow.

    I personally have always been more of a fitness endurance athlete than a weight lifter. my favorite exercise was running barefoot in the sand.

    During my early days playing with hgh products, I used to take a strong hgh stack at the beginning of a run and another hgh concoction at the end. there were some amazing 12 mile runs were it felt like I was just floating. My recovery time was almost nothing. Went back out the next day and did it again.

  36. Scott J says:

    Hi – thanks, I’ll look for the review. It has been reccomended to me, as well as another product from somalife called GHP sport, which comes in capsule form. The people reccomending both of these products to me have similiar comments around being able to do their long runs / cycling with a much easier recovery, and improved performance during the workout. This site has been helpful, as most of what I find on the net is advertising, whcih of course is all positive.

  37. admin says:

    We have a draft of a review for GHP Sport also. I will add it to this week’s list. I will give you a three word sneak peak.

    “Significantly over priced.”

  38. Mike says:


    If I were interested in this for strictly looking better/losing weight would this be worth taking? I am 34 years old, 6ft, about 210lbs and run only about 5-10 miles a week for exercise. I would love to get down to about 180 lbs with something like this product. Would you recommend it?


  39. admin says:

    It will help.

    Up the exercise a notch to say 10-15 miles per week. Maybe add in a little Acetyl-l-carnitine and/or hoodia while managing the eating.

    I was a victim of suburban dad syndrome and have trimmed of 20 lbs. this year.

  40. Bill says:

    I’m I meant stacking it w/ secretagogue gold or would that be redundant?

  41. Bill says:

    My main goal is to lose weight and increase lean muscle mass so would i use okg and the secretagogue gold? And if so which brand of okg would you recommend?

  42. Bill says:

    What is Life Renewal’s hgh website ?

  43. Kevin says:

    I noticed that alot of the amino acids in this product(and many other hgh products)are the same as the ones in the whey protein powder I take.Can whey protein help with hgh production?

  44. admin says:


    I would recommend taking just the Secretagogue Gold by itself when you first start. See what that does for you and then consider if you want to add anything else.

    I would use a brand from any reputable company. I think I have Jarrow and Source Naturals on my shelf at the moment. But there are several other equally good brands.

    I believe the website is in the comments section of the Life Renewal Review.


    The amino acids listed on the whey protein package are the ones that combine together to form whey.

    While there is some evidence that taking protein after a workout helps slightly raise hgh levels, it is not the same thing as taking the individual free form amino acids on an empty stomach.

  45. David says:

    Instead of reviewing these hgh products for their benefits, why don’t you tell us the best formula and the amounts of each supplement you believe to increase hgh the most so we can try to purchase them either individually or in combinations to add up to the formula you think is most beneficial! I have personally wasted plenty of money trying some of the products you have already reviewed.If I could make up my own on a daily basis I would like to try. Thanks, David

  46. admin says:

    We figure that the reviews do a large number of people a big service by keeping them from wasting money on some of worthless products.

    Eventually we are going to talk in depth about all the different ingredients and ways to combine them.

  47. Jeff says:

    Thank you for your website. This has been the most truthful and helpful site I have found.

    I have looked at the ingredients from various supplements. Many list L-arginine, which I noticed at the top of the ingredient lists (a main ingredient). In Secretagogue Gold it is not listed at all. What does this mean as far as this gh stack? Is the benefits of L-arginine made up with a different amino acid?

    You also talk about cycling the product – 5 days taking it, then 2 days off. Is there a difference in overall feeling, amount of energy and other benefits from cycling the product versus taking it every day? Should you also cycle long term with this product, like 5 months taking it, then 1 or 2 months off? Does long term effect wear off or decrease without taking a break from this product?

    Thank you for your help.

  48. admin says:

    There are a number of different ways you can build an hgh stack. Some start with arginine and Secretagogue Gold starts with glycine. Either approach can get you where you want to go.

    The problem with many products is that they list a whole bunch of amino acids but there is no way that the product contains enough to do any good. Some products don’t even have the minimum amount of any one amino acid.

    Here it is easy to see that the minimum amount of glycine could be used and still have room for the minimum amounts of enough other ingredients for the product to be effective.

    Cycling is a longer discussion. I will see that a draft of a post on basic cycling gets a final edit and put on the site this week.

  49. Nicolas says:

    Hey guys! Im a big fan of your site and have been researching the right HGH formula to take as an athlete. I am looking for a great product that will help me in the weight room and on in competition. I was considering Secretagogue Gold as my choice… a good one? Please help me out guys! Thanks!

  50. admin says:

    Secrtagogue Gold is as good as any product we have reviewed so far. Somewhere, up above, I believe we discussed ways athletes can kick it up a notch if they want to.

  51. Brian says:

    Hello i dont get it, if these hgh
    stimulators work, why then do doctors and
    other fine peoble, still say that they
    dont work? if there are no real proof,
    where is the proof? if there is real proof
    it works why then why this problem? also would i at 29 profit from taking it?

  52. admin says:

    29 is a bit on the early side.

    As to doctors and fine people….. Well if everybody agreed about everything, the world would be a boring place.

  53. Nicolas says:

    1 more questions for the admins. I was looking for more stuff on the athletic benefits of this product but couldnt find any on your site… So here is my question… at 20 is it WORTH spending the money on and will it assist me enough to reach the peak of my game?

  54. admin says:

    At age 20, these kind of products just are not going to make a big difference. You are still in the peak hormone zone.

    A multi-vitamin and a good green drink will probably do more for your health than any sports supplements.

  55. Nicolas says:

    If they do not assist much, whats all the hype about then regarding the hgh in sports?

  56. admin says:


  57. susan says:

    I have only tried Secretagogue Gold for two or three days and already started to see some positive results. But I am concerned if there is any potential long term negative side effects…how long has this product been around ?

  58. admin says:

    Secretagogue Gold hasn’t been around for 10 years but I remember at least 3 years but it could be longer.

    Various kinds of hgh products have been around for over 20 years and I have never heard of any serious comments of negative side effects. However, everyone can react differently to any one product.

    I always suggest that people pay attention to the baselines of their health. Things like blood pressure, pulse rate etc. If you see any negative changes for you, stop.

  59. susan says:

    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our experiences. I imagine every one would have different sensitivity level. So would you recommend gradual/slow initial dosage level for those of us who are very sensitive, possibly even skipping few days between two packetes initially? I am 49 and started trying this product as a guinea pig before having my father (over 85) trying it. But the positive effects are so dramatic (greater performance during my workout, sense of well being, and motivation level, etc.) only after two packets/days that I wonder if I should take it slowly.

    I am also curious if one needs to increase the dosage level (in order to get comparable effect) after long term use.

    Is there any one who had used this product for over a year and then suddenly stopped cold turkey? What happens then?

    Will Secretagogue Gold help to increase or decrease the risk of cancer? Perhaps this is an individual dependent question.

    Again, thank you for this forum.

  60. Curtis says:

    I am 31, active, healthy. Just want something for myself and 41 year old fiance, also healthy. I do spirulina in the a.m with Q10. I would like to add something like the Secretagogue at evening before bed. Should I take it alone, or suppliment it? Only looking for anti-aging effects, not muscle building. Thanks for the info!

  61. Curtis says:

    Can you get this stuff in bulk? Or do you have to get 100 orders of individual 30 pack boxes?

  62. admin says:


    I don’t see any need to supplement it with anything extra.

    Off hand I don’t know of anyone who sells it in bulk. There might be a few online retailers that give a discount for multiple box orders.

    The best bet might be to negotiate with a local supplement retailer.

  63. admin says:


    Always error on the side of caution. However, some of the effects are not quite as noticeable once you are used to taking the product.

    I don’t see a big need to increase the dosage after long term use. Cycling is designed to help the product work better over time.

    There is kind of an s-curve effect. The benefit gains will not seem as great further down the road but you are making progress or maintaining at a higher level.

    When you stop taking it you will have a bit of a reverse s-curve effect.

    We are basically doing this to increase our health and well being until the scientific geniuses come up with something even better. That looks to be 5 to 10 year from now.

    Ohhh! The big C thing. We are going to be posting more on this but for now we’ll just give the short version.

    If I had cancer, I would not take prescription hgh or hgh supplements. Just to be safe because there is not a medical consensus.

    Otherwise, my personal opinion leans toward the camp that says increased hgh levels can help protect against disease. This is for responsibly increased levels not for people who are trying to see how high and fast they can jack up hgh levels.

  64. susan says:

    My father had been free from lymphoma for over six/seven years. Because of his recent lethargy, lack of interest in doing anything (simply staying in bed most of the time), losing much of his appetite, and eventually not being able to get up from the bathtub (from being so frail), that instigated my attempt in searching for something that might help to put some pep and strength back into his life. After just one packet of the Secretagogue Gold, he is getting up more, started to listen to his favorite operas and exercising again, having better appetite, and even smiling….I think we may have just found a way to buy him few more years on earth….due to your words of caution, perhaps we will reserve the use of this product only when he gets really frail and down.

  65. Jessica says:

    Question on the other end of the spectrum. My 14 year old step-son has been on the borderline of receiving hgh injections several times. Now it looks like it isn’t going to happen. I don’t know the exact numbers, but his hgh levels have been quite low for the last 4 years. He is 4’7″ (with a dad who is 6’4″), commonly gets mistaken for a 10 year old, and struggles with low energy. He plays some sports, and when he works out he clearly feels better. Whether or not it would change his final height, it would be really excellent if stacking for hgh meant he didn’t have such a battle with such low energy.

    Would you supplement your kid with something like Secretagogue Gold in this situation?

    Using the disclaimer that this is a personal and not a medical opinion,

    There is nothing in this product that would be harmful to a 14 year old. So trying a box and seeing how it makes him feel with careful monitoring, should not be a problem.

    A good chlorella product might also be a good idea.

  67. Jessica says:

    Thanks. Also, thanks for the great site. I really appreciate the work you’ve put into it. Like the previous writer, I’ll try it out on myself first. I’m 34 and a semi-serious field sports athlete interested in focusing on my power and sprint speed.

  68. Steve says:

    I would so love to purchase this product and I have tried ordering through the two websites that you mentioned but neither of them ship to Australia. Can anyone help me with this. Thanks for all the research you have made available, its the best HGH site on the web by far. Cheers.

  69. admin says:


    That is a good idea.


    Australia has some different rules than the USA. It used to be that they did not like products that combined herbs with amino acids. I don’t know what the current rules are. If I run across a firm that ships to Australia I will post it.

    Just received my secretagogue gold. Took it last night and swear I felt more energetic today but I am wondering if it is placebo or the effect of this supplement. A few qusetions:
    1. I am a 51 year old female and run 15-20 miles per week. I also do light weights. Is it necessary to do the strength training before bedtime?
    Do I need to start cycling in the begining or should I take this continuously to build up levels?
    I started taking this due to fatigue and just feeling like age was going to start becoming a factor in my well-being.
    When do optimal results show?

  71. admin says:

    Anything to do with strength training is a personal choice.

    You start cycling from the very beginning.

    Optimal results show up in 3 to 6 months.

    Hi guys. I am 24 years old and with a auto-inmune condition very similar to Lupus. Because of the pain that I have all over my body I haven’t been able to do exercise for over 8 years now ,because of that, my muscles are extremely weak and wasted. I would lke to know if Secretagogue Gold can help me gained some strenght back, to have a better looking body and help me in my overall health. Also it would be very helpful if you can tell me if taking this kind of supplements can increase the probabilty of me getting Diabetes or another kind of disease that a lot of sites claim that you can get by using this kind of products. Thank you for your great help and concern for all the people out there that wants to get a better health.

  73. naushPD says:

    Hi!, I’m so glad to have found this board. Can someone in their mid 20s try hghr? I recently ordered Longevity, If i had seen this page before I would have most definitely ordered secretagogue gold.

    I’m a very active person, work out more than 4 times a week, eat very carefully, but sometimes get real lazy and won’t go to the gym for a week and start eating BURGERS. lol. anyway,,,, i’m into my healthy lifestyle at least 9 out of 12 months a year so to speak.

    I suffer from eczema and recently my skin (especially face and back) would break out a lot which never ever happened before. I learned it was due to hormonal and stress related issues but I’m trying to take supplements like zinc, vitamin A and C for that. But because of age increase I feel like I need to be very careful with what I eat usually and work out so much in order to maintain a good body. Before this it wasn’t that difficult. I’ve also noticed that my skin healing takes longer for any prob than it would before. Ive realised that just after 25 your body starts showing signs of hgh lowered gradually.

    Anyway, cutting a longer story short now :) I want to try longevity, read all about the cycle and all. Also that best time is probably to take before bed. My only concern is, at my age, should I try a different cyccle like 3 days a week? Also, is there going to be any side effects?

    Any response and all comments (polite one ;)) welcome. :D

  74. admin says:


    We really can’t get into providing such specific medical advice but someone else might come along and make some comments.

    We would advise that if you try such a product. go slow and monitor yourself carefully.

    For people in general, proper use of hgh supplements probably does not increase the risk of diabetes. Most people I talk to actually think that it lessens the long run risk.


    Once again, we can’t get into the specific medical details.

    We would give you the same advice of going slow and monitoring yourself carefully. I would say take it for one day and then wait two days. Up it one extra day at a time and take two day breaks. If you notice any worsening of your eczema, stop immediately.

    Most of these products are not going to do a whole lot for people in their 20’s. Individual results will vary.

    A personal opinion side note: I know of people with both of these conditions who have reported positive results from taking chlorella and spirulina. Same slow and careful advice would apply.

    Oh, we moderate out most of the impolite comments.

  75. naushPD says:

    Thanks you :)

    just a couple more questions from the admin.

    which one would you rate a better hgh supplement?

    Secretagogue Gold or Life Renewal HGH?

    also, could you please direct to some online store where i could purchase some at a good price.

    thanks :)

  76. admin says:

    Life Renewal HGH still seems to be out of stock.

    I don’t know of any specific UK companies that sell Secretagogue Gold. You might want to contact MHP and see if they have a distributor list.

  77. Chris says:

    Hey Admin,

    I’m at 25 year old male who goes to the gym 3-4 times a week religiously and am in pretty good shape but wants to gain 15-20 pounds of muscle, and maybe lose a little fat at the same time. Will Secretagogue gold or Secretagogue One or Life Renewal HGH or even GH Stack help me in anyway to acheive my goal? Would stacking either OKG on top of Secretgogue gold or any other product, or using a combination of arginine and niacin in a 5 to 1 ratio 30 minutes before a workout on an empty stomach work to achieve this muscle growth and fat loss that I desire? Keeping in mind I’m only 25? Is there anything a 25 year old can do?

    ps: you guys are doing a great service to the general public and I commend you. Using your site has actually helped me dodge a 400 dollar GHR 1000 bullet earlyier today.

    pps: at 25, are there any products on the market that can help me achieve my goals, and if so what are they?

    Thank you Admin, your hard work and dedication is greatly appreciated, and hey if you ever are in need of a lab-tech to for concentration analysis using HPLC instrumentation for your upcomming studies give me a shout (I’m certified).

    Highest regards,

    Chris Bourdages

  78. hgh truths says:

    First off, glad we helped you dodge a $400 bullet. One of our main goals is to help as many people as possible not waste money on bogus products.

    Despite what the sports nutrition folks want to tell you, there really are no miracle muscle building products.

    At 25 you can try all of the different things you mentioned. They will not hurt but the beneficial results will probably be minor. Using extra aminos will help the kick but how much it does for you depends on where your personal hormone levels are.

  79. chris says:

    Hey Admin,

    you couldn’t recomend any products or stacks that would produce major beneficial results for a 25 year old looking male who is looking to build lean muscle and loose weight could you? also, just to be clear, a 25 year old male (like myself) shouldnt waste money on hgh products because they wouldnt do anything correct?

    again you guys rock

  80. naushPD says:

    Hello again,

    I was just trying to find some online store with the best price, I read in the review above where you have mentioned that this product maybe found for $44.00…. I can’t seem to find it anywhere for less than 54/55 :(

    Could you PLEASE advise what online store is offering that price?

    Thank you in advance.

    Also, all your advise is greatly appreciated :)

  81. admin says:


    Really nothing that is going to give the big kind of results. The products are not a total waste of money but a 25 year old can’t get the same percentage increase in results that a 40 or 50 year old would see.

    There would still be some results for a 25 year old but a good protein powder combined with a more effective mix of workouts would probably do better.

    You will probably also end up being a much healthier 40 year old than the norm. Just a question if you are ready to do it on the long term investment plan. most 25 year olds aren’t.


    The best price we currently know about is on Amazon. A friend just recently paid $40.19 direct from Amazon. Wonder if they read our reviews?

    We should probably be ambitious and put our Amazon associate link in here. I don’t think there is anything sleazy about getting 4% from something people are going to buy anyway. Do you?

  82. Eric says:


    Im a 33 yo male who just began taking this product a week ago. I seem to be feeling the benefits almost immediately. Is this all in my head or do physiological changes happen within the first week? Also, I recommended this product to my 63 yo mother, who is in excellent health. Should she see as many benefits as a 40-50 yo? Thanks in advance for your reply.

  83. admin says:


    Some of the initial effects are in your head, physiologically. Generally speaking it is usually a calm sort of energy.

    When you first start taking a product you do notice some effects the first week. The second stage is that you get used to these “surface” effects and it might seem like nothing is happening. The third stage is when you start to notice the deeper more long lasting effects.

    Your mother would probably see greater effects than 40-50 year olds because she would be starting from a lower hormone level.

  84. Dodgeybird says:

    Have just started with secretagogue gold and have noticed great changed straight away – any advice on where to get it in Europe – I am ordering from the US at the moment

    • netty says:

      Hey my boyfriend and I buy a lot of our vitiamins from puritan pride and we just ordered our first box of the secretagogue gold from them for around $45. They may ship to any place check out their website at Good luck.

  85. hgh truths says:

    The best thing to do is to contact the company, Maximum Human Performance ( MHP ), directly and ask if they have a European distributor.

  86. Blair says:

    Admin…I have been doing some research on supplements that can help me trim up and build lean muscle. I want to get your thoughts on a stack that I just started trying after doing some searching. L-Carnitine (1g three times a day), Green Tea extract (500mg three times a day), Caffeine (200 mg twice daily), Forskolin (30 mg twice daily), Creatine (5g before and after workout), Fish Oil (2g twice daily), and 2 scoops of Optimum Nutrition whey protein (twice daily). I figured that taking the ingredients in these amounts would be more beneficial than taking a pill that has a combination of these ingredients in smaller amounts. Am I on the right track?

  87. Cathy says:

    Wanted to thank you so much for your site. It is a new favorite of mine and I find I am back here almost daily to read new posts.
    Started taking secretagauge gold two weeks ago and I am feeling a sense of well -being and energy. My sleep, always a real problem is so much better.
    Is there anything else you would generally recommend for a 51 year old woman who eats well, exercises and is on no medication?

  88. admin says:


    I am currently enjoying getting my resveratrol the french way, from a nice bottle of Medoc. Not quite in the mood to be able to wrap myself around diet stuff but I’ll give it a quick shot.

    L-carnitine is good stuff. Subtle but helpful….. I like my green tea by the cup not as a extract…. I prefer my caffeine to be as espresso…Never been hugely convinced about large amounts of creatine for lean muscle……Fish oil is good stuff….I enjoy protein powders that have multiple sources of protein that digest over different times. They seem to be more energizing and good appetite suppressants.

  89. admin says:


    The best results are actually still two to five months away.

    Chlorella and spirulina are always really good bets and a good full spectrum anti-oxidant never hurts.

  90. James says:

    This site is very helpful in my research about HGH. One question, I am a 25 year old football player and I currently run the 40yd dash in 4.5 seconds and thought that HGH would help me run faster and get me down to a 4.3. Would this product help my speed or would any HGH product help me run faster?

  91. admin says:

    I seriously doubt that any hgh product is going to help you run faster.

  92. sylvain says:

    Hi thank for all your research ,it help me a lot for the choice of hgh that i would buy.After i mader my first order on the net,i did a little research about the side effect of hgh .Ibegan to regret the order i made.How could you recommend hgh use .The list of side effect is so long,begenning whith the bone structure of the face that can grow like you might have seen with Stallone on is last Rambo, even the hart the hands and foots can grow and that is none reversable.Your live could be shorter too ,who would like those side effect i think nobody .

    I will return my box of secretagogue gold when i receive it

  93. admin says:

    It is very easy to recommend because we are talking about vitamin supplements.

    You are talking about the side effects of the over use of injectable hgh. The side effects of human growth hormone abuse experienced by some bodybuilders.

    We are concerned with the much subtler benefits derived from dietary supplements.

    Even when we talk about using prescription hgh, we are talking about the responsible use in small dosages by informed and educated adults.

    Guess we are now forced to finish the side effects posts.

  94. Kevin says:

    Has anyone ever taken a before and after blood test to see how much,if any HGH is produced by the body by using this(or any other hgh releaser) product?

  95. sylvain says:

    Thank you for the fast commentary about the side effect

  96. admin says:


    The general answer is yes. The specific answer takes more words than I have the time for at the moment.


    I just wanted to clear that up. some time in the next week we hope to put up what looks to be a series of posts on hgh side effects that lengthens the explanation.

  97. susan says:

    Isariel and Admin,

    I came across this link and hopefully will help to answer some of Isariel’s questions.

  98. Carol says:

    I am a 58yr old female. No major health issues, just some aches and pains, but I do take a thyroid medication. I sleep well , eat ok, but I have very little energy or interest in doing anything. Do you think this product would benefit me?
    Thank you,

  99. admin says:


    I think it could. I know of people with low thyroid who have taken hgh supplements and are happy with the results.

    Since you are taking medication, start slow and monitor yourself well. If you have an open minded doctor, talk to them first.

  100. Matt says:

    I have been doing a lot of research on the hgh products and have been mostly been looking for height increase and muscle increase. The main thing I want is height and some of the hyped products say it can happen. Obviously I am skeptical and after reading all of the posts on this site I really doubt it. Im 18 and I figure I could just order the ghr1000 or genf20 and then return it before my 60 free trial is up. Do you think I should even waste my time? Is there some other product out there that would help me add some inches before my growing is over? thanks

  101. hgh truths says:

    It would be a total waste of time and money. There is NO PRODUCT that will help you grow taller.

  102. admin says:


    I should take this a step further. Growth hormone deficent children probably only see an increase in height of around 3 inches after long term treatment with prescription growth hormone.

  103. Dan says:

    If hgh doesn’t do anything for athletes, then why is it illigal?

  104. admin says:

    Hgh isn’t illegal.

    Distribution of pharmaceutical human growth hormone to people who do not have a prescription is illegal.

    The dietary supplements such as Secretagogue Gold are just that, dietary supplements.

  105. Dan says:

    Oh my fault, what I should have said was banned. If it doesn’t really give a competitive edge, howcome sports test for it, and crack down on those who test positive on it?

  106. Max says:

    i am 31 yrs old, i have only recently started exercising, last 3 months and few months last year , prior to that i have not been doing any exercises for 8 years. :( now coming back to sport is difficult and recover feels slow.
    do you think this lack of exercise lowered my natural growth hormones?
    and do you think this secreta thing would help me.?
    many thanks.

  107. Max says:

    if i could please some more questions,
    does this secreta gold thing have amino acid complex, and would that be also good to supplament it? i heard that all amino-acids are in meat, i eat a lot of meat and normally healthy food, do i need amino acids?
    also do you think this thing would help me: “Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex APS Rocky Road” .
    many thanks again.

  108. hgh truths says:


    Pharmaceutical HGH is banned because it is alleged to be a performance enhancer. In jectable hgh might not do much for a 22 year old rookie ball player but it could be of assistance in prolonging the career of a 35 year old.

    When we are talking about hgh not being of much use for athletes, we are primarily talking about nutritional supplement hgh releasers not being of much use to young athletes. Releasers just do not do much for people who are not hormone deficient.

  109. hgh truths says:


    At 31 it might be of some assistance.

    Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. The supplements we are talking about here are different than the food that you digest.

    The product you are talking about is a protein supplement. Protein is always helpful if you are trying to build muscle. We do not review protein supplements.

  110. Sammy says:

    have you reviewed Promino plus yet? seems similar to Secretagogue Gold.

  111. hgh truths says:

    Promino Plus is inferior to Secretagogue Gold and has one of the worst supplement facts labels in the industry. There is a review coming soon.

  112. Jeff says:

    Wow, this has been quite a find and quite a read. So based upon your reviews it sounds like you’re saying that 1/4 serving of Life Renewal combined with Secretagogue Gold would make a close to perfect supplement (an “A” by your standard)? Did I understand correctly?

    Secondly, is there any risk of conflicting ingredients or over-dosing if I’m currently taking a multi-tablet packet supplement such as GNC’s “Men’s Energy Vitapak”?

    And lastly, I’ve heard that it is a good idea to take a good broad-spectrum antioxidant supplement when using products such as these. Do you concur and do you have a product that you would recommend?

    Thank you so much for this valuable website, information, and all of your time to keep it going.

  113. hgh truths says:


    You understand correctly. That extra push of more amino acids lifts it over the top.

    I do suggest that you try Secretagogue Gold by itself first. That is enough for most people. Maybe test the boost in the second or third stage of the cycle.

    The energy pack is one of those everything but powdered kitchen sink extract products. However nothing is in real large quantities. Probably nothing would conflict but take each separately and then start mixing so that you have a baseline experience as a basis for your own judgement.

    Huge fan of antioxidants. I spread my antioxidants around. It is fresh berry season so I am getting most of them the old fashioned way. Piled on ice cream.

    The most frequent supplement I consume is alpha lipoic acid which boosts up the whole antioxidant chain reaction.

  114. Jeff says:

    HGH Truths,

    Thank you for such a quick response and for the useful advice. I promise these to be my last few questions as I value your time and opinion.

    Might you be willing to recommend a good multi-vitamin/mineral supplement that is more “focused” in providing the essential nutrients and that would be a good companion to Secretagogue Gold?

    Also, are you familiar with “Uber Greens” from Heartland Products and what is your opinion of it as a “green-food” supplement.

  115. hgh truths says:


    I eat a pretty good diet so have not been worried about multi-vitamins. A trade show vendor gave me a few bottles of Source Naturals Mega One. Seems to be OK but anything that is not overloaded with all kinds of herbs and things is OK. Stick to something that is more straight vitamins and minerals.

    We are huge believers in green food supplements. “Uber Greens” looks to be a decent product. Once again avoid the green products that stick in piles of extra herbs.

    Before somebody gets the idea that we are opposed to herbs we better expand the subject.

    Herbs Good. Herbs in daily supplements bad.

  116. Sylvain Beaudet says:

    Hi ,first of all thank you for all the good information that you are providing us.I am a 44 yrs old male who exercise 4 time a week.I sleep well eat well .I received my order of secretagogue gold on friday since there was 31 pouch instead of 30 i said i am gonna tried one tonight what a bad night of sleep i had.Last night i tried once again secretagogue and another bad night of sleep .I dont know if i am doing something wrong or does it take a certain time to get use to it thank you for your answer Sylvain

  117. Sylvain says:

    First of all thank you for good advice .i have received my order of secretagogue gold on friday ,i had to try one since there was 31 pack instead of 30,i had a very bad night of sleep .Then i tried it again on sunday and monday the samething happen lack of sleep ,i do wake up every 2 hours .How long does it take to get use to this product Sylvain

  118. hgh truths says:


    You are stimulating things in your body. Both hgh release and an increase in dopamine levels.

    Most people report better sleep but some people have more active dreaming. Everybody is different. If you are not experiencing any serious negative effects then just flow along for a while and see how it goes.

    There might be a chance that this is not the right product for you. A small percentage of people do not respond well to dopamine increase.

    If things do not settle down by the end of the box then try something different next time.

  119. Sylvain says:

    thank you very much for your fast reply Sylvain

  120. Nancy says:

    Thank you very much for all your ratings. I too have tried a couple of the “F”‘s and wasted money. I am now order the B+ product and look forward to the opportunity to maybe see some results. I am a 48 yr old woman, quite active, but just want a boost to help slow down the agining process and feel more energy to workout more. Thank you for your site!

  121. pat says:

    thanks !!!

    can you post the optimal HGH stack?

    supplements & dosages ?

    thanks again

  122. hgh truths says:


    Glad to be of service.


    We could design dozens of optimal versions. We eventually will talk about all the individual ingredients and dosages.

  123. kami says:

    First off, thanks for the great site.

    I’m curious about the stak I am taking. In the morning I take Animal Cuts and Animal Pak. At night I takesecretagogue Gold. How do these stak up on paper? My body acting normal with increased energy of course. I just don’t want to harm something internally. Thanks for all your help.

  124. Nancy says:

    I am taking Secreatagogue Gold. Is there a reason it is advised to take at night versus taking on an empty stomach first thing in the morning? Also, If I split the dose and take half in the morn and half at night, would that be less effficient?

    I am still trying to get Life Renewal HGH r by Reunion Health but they are always out of stock and I can’t find another source to purchase from.

  125. hgh truths says:


    I just looked quickly at both Animal Cuts and Animal Pak. So this is just a first impression opinion.

    Animal Cuts – At least they semi-disclose the ingredients. This is just another diet pill with a lot of extra stuff added on. Of course you would be feeling more energy because this is just basically low grade speed. It appears that a number of the extra ingredients are just there in label dressing amounts.

    I am not a huge fan of diet pills. I also don’t think that this is a great product for cycling 3 weeks on and one week of as they suggest. Since I don’t know your goal in taking Animal Cuts, it is hard to say more. Plus the whole discussion about diet pills and how to take them properly could fill several blog posts.

    Animal Pak – A lot of the comments about Animal cuts also apply here. There are some good ingredients combined with some window dressing. The case of an over designed sports supplement.

    There are a few ingredients in Animal Pak that lead me to say that this is NOT a good product to take daily.

    If one of my friends from Muscle Beach asked me about these products, I would probably tell them that these two Sports Supplements have good potential as a week before competition aids. Then I would want a report on the effects they experienced.

  126. hgh truths says:


    Taking an hgh supplement on an empty stomach right at bedtime is the best. This is because it stimulates an increased hgh release during the sleep cycle which is when the most hgh release natural occurs. Your body is also in a better state to make full systemic use of the hgh that is released.

    Second best would be on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Don’t eat or drink anything other than water for the next 30 minutes.

    A split dosage is not as good as either of the other two choices. I only suggest this to people who are extremely sensitive to the effects of a full dose.

    A month ago the Life Renewal people said that they would have product in a couple of weeks. I will attempt to check with them.

    Also, don’t worry about taking extra amino acids until you get through at least the first month with Secretagogue Gold. You might find that does the job all by itself. More is not always better.

  127. kurdt says:

    This is a fantastic, informative site. Thanks for all the hard work.

    Question: You mentioned you take alpha lipoic acid. I’ve heard nothing but positive things about taking a supplement. How much do you take daily and is a product you would recommend.


  128. hgh truths says:

    Always happy to help.

    Both bottles of alpha lipoic acid I have contain dosages of 100 mg.

    There is already some in Secretagogue Gold but we do not know the exact amount.

  129. Adam says:

    hi there i was about to purchase this ghr supplement until i read your website. i found your website very useful. can you plse tell me where i can buy liquid glucosamine from the internet? regards

  130. hgh truths says:


    Just plug liquid glocosamine into the search engine of your choice and you will get back all kinds of places to purchase it.

  131. Renee' says:

    I am a 48 yr old female and taking truwell hgh gold and it is giving me energy and I feel life in myself again. I also am taking DHEA, Pregnonlone, B5, magnesium, Sylmarian, and vitamin E for adrenal fatigue. I also take a supplement that has Alpha lipoic and acetyl-l-carnitine w/biotin for healthy cell function. Am I way overdoing it? Is the dhea and pregnonlone doing the same as what the hgh would do? Thanks

  132. c.j. says:

    Wondering about a product called Chrysalis. It has been getting stellar reviews both from those taking the supplement and from various talk show hosts. What do you think?

  133. hgh truths says:


    Dhea and pregnenolone are not the same as hgh and do not do the exact same thing. Both dhea and pregnenolone are adrenal hormones that are further down the hormone cascade than hgh. Theoretically, hgh stimulates an increase in both these hormones if that is what the body needs.

    Taking too much dhea and pregnenolone can actually increase adrenal fatigue. So watch your dosage and do frequent cycling.

    Truwell hgh would merely rate as an OK product. Secretagogue Gold is at least twice as good.

  134. hgh truths says:


    I think it is crap. The company that markets it is not even willing to list the ingredients or show the label on its product page.

    Enough people have asked about it that I think we will whip of a review.

  135. Steve says:

    What have you heard about velvet antler, and is that something I could take with HGH supplement? Do you think this would help a 32yr old man trying to become a long distance runner, and get back in shape?

  136. hgh truths says:


    Velvet antler is just that, the velvet scrapped off a deers antlers. Huh?

    It gets a lot of promotin but there is no solid research on whether or not it really does anything.

  137. Steve says:

    So is Secretagogue Gold a good thing for my goal, or is it a waste of money?

  138. hgh truths says:


    At 32, you are at the beginning stage of when these products work. Everybody is a little bit different. My best advice is buy one box and try it. Find out for yourself if it helps you or not.

    At the very least it should give you at least your money’s worth in health benefits.

  139. Sylvain says:

    Hi thank you for those unbiaise review .I have been taking secretagogue gold now for 4 weeks ,after 3 week i began to sleep better ,i gpt more energy and my cardio is a lot better .My question is i will be working night shift pretty soon(midnight to 8 in the morning)when will be the best time to take secretagogue then Thank you

  140. hgh truths says:


    Nice to hear that it is working for you.

    Those night shifts can be rough. Take Secretagogue Gold just before you go to bed. Whenever that might be.

    hi would you happen to know what hgh product OR amino acids that can promote heights?i am 24 years old and dont do smoke (well not anymore) and rarely drink. any advice would be appriectaed

  142. hgh truths says:


    There is no supplement in this solar system that is going to help a 24 year old grow even 1 millimeter taller.

    You could spend $50,000 on pharmaceutical injectable hgh and not have any results.

  143. A.ray says:

    I’m a 40 yr old female…..have started to notice
    in last couple of years a decline in energy, more fat in waist area ( more to eating crap and not working out)….I use to dable in weight training and would like to start it up again. Can this help me?

  144. hgh truths says:


  145. Sylvain says:

    thank you for the fast answer alway there to help us

  146. A.RAY says:

    Wow, that was a quick response! Thank you. One more question. Can I use this as a recovery drink after my evening workouts or should I get a separate drink for that?

  147. hgh truths says:


    Your welcome.

    I’ll take this opportunity to once again beg for all bookmarks and kind mentions on social sites that any grateful readers would be kind enough to give us.

  148. hgh truths says:


    The absolutely best time to take it is just before bedtime on an empty stomach. That is not having eaten anything for two hours.

    After a workout is just an OK time.

  149. Steve says:

    I am 21 and would like to get a little boost to my athletic ability. Will taking this product do that even slightly or would it be a waste of money?

  150. Javier says:

    First off, thanks for all the useful information. I too was going to waste money on a “hgh spray” until I found your website.

    Im 25 years old. Hit the gym 4-5 times a week. I do a lot of cardio and I’m planning to add some weight training. I am just trying to get lean.
    Would it be a horrible idea for me to buy Secretagogue Gold? I know it won’t have a big effect as I am 25 years old, but even if it is for the placebo effect I am thinking of trying it.
    It’s not expensive and I just want to try it out.
    I just want to feel like I like I have some sort of edge for my weight loss goal.

  151. A.ray says:

    ……Yes, but is it as good a a recovery drink or do I need something else?

  152. Karendw says:

    I am 59 yrs. old; post menopausal, with symptoms even though I am taking OTC Progesterone Cream and Phytoestrogen Creme, which seem to help me mentally, but not with hot flashes. Tests showed my Estrogen levels and Testosterone levels almost nil! My question is: I take Calcium/ Magnesium drink (A-B CALM) at night along with Psyllium Husks. Will that interfere with the Secretagogue Gold to take that at night as well? Also, will this HGH product also help increase my Estrogen & Testosterone levels? Thanks for the website! Karen

  153. Karendw says:

    I meant to mention that I also took Genf20 last year for about 6 mos. and didn’t notice any difference! Thanks again, Karen

  154. hgh truths says:

    So many comments at once on the same post. I’ll try to reply quickly to each in between platform dives. So far nobody at this Olympics has been busted for hgh use. Be interesting to see if it stays that way after the secondary post Olympic Games testing.

  155. hgh truths says:


    Read Javier’s post. If you want to give it a try you need to have realistic expectations. The emphasis should be on the word slightly.

  156. hgh truths says:


    It is not a horrible idea. You will get more than a placebo effect. You just need to keep those expectations realitic.

  157. hgh truths says:


    I have never tried to use it as a recovery drink. I am more of a water and protein person.

    It would probably be OK .

  158. hgh truths says:


    I will start with the easier parts.

    Your welcome.

    Genf20 is over priced and under powered.

    The combination part is a good question. I would try taking the Secretagogue Gold 15 minutes to 30 minutes before the other. See how that works.

    Then try taking both at the same time and see if you notice a difference.

    Pick the method that works best for you.

    Picture a beautiful multi stage waterfall. Hgh would start in the top of the cascade. As it comes down each level it is converted into other hormones and substances in the body. The body tends to use the extra hgh pulse to create what it most needs.

    Estrogen and testosterone are down near the bottom of the cascade. Theoretically there should be a boost. Many people experience this and test for it. However, there are no individual guarantees because everybody is different.

    Dhea can sometimes be a more direct help.

    Hopefully we answered your question in away that can’t be construed to be giving any kind of medical advice.

  159. Mark says:

    Just purchased Secretagogue Gold I’m 48 what plan should I use to take product?

    I take a daily vitiam pak at night
    I also take glucosamine 1500mg & chondroitin 1200mg at night

    also take 3 med’s from doctor at night
    niaspan 500mg
    allopurinol 100mg
    crestor 10mg

    Do you see any problems


  160. John says:

    Hi, I am 19 years old and I was wondering if you think this product would benefit me. I am currently losing weight and lifting weights but soon I will be taking MMA classes.

  161. Sundar Nathan says:

    This is the best freakin’ site on this subject I have yet seen. You need to be on Oprah, my man. I am planning to start Secretagogue Gold this weekend. Thank you for all the tips.
    I am 38, overweight and do cardio every day. I take Cymbalta for depression and unisom to sleep. Let’s see what Secretagogue can do for me.

    Keep up the great work. You are serving tons of people and I admire you.

    best regards


  162. hgh truths says:


    We can’t really legally sat much when pharmaceutical drugs are involved. I doubt Secretagogue Gold has been tested for drug interactions.

    This is where we are supposed to say check with your doctor even though most doctors don’t know the answer. They just normally say no to cover their own butts. I would say the same thing if I had all those malpractice sharks circling around trying to drive up my premiums.

    The best advice that I can offer is to start with partial dosages and carefully monitor how you are feeling.

  163. hgh truths says:


    The best thing you can do is work hard and find a good protein supplement.

    While not harmful, hgh supplements are mostly a waste of money for a 19 year old.

  164. hgh truths says:



    We would turn Oprah down. nobody involved with this site is in it to be a personality. We just want to do our small to reduce the level of internet scams while pointing people to products that can actually help them improve their health.

  165. Jeff says:

    Thanks so much for your site..I was doing a lot of googling looking for research and reviews on HGH..I’m 64 just recently retired and in good shape .Started to do some weight training just to keep in decent shape..3 days a week for around 50 minutes..Even at my age the workout is very intense..I’m hoping the Gold will help in recovery, stamina and just good over all of now I’m not taking any Vitamins, herbs or prescribed medicine…I think after reading about the benefits of the gold my goals will be attainable..Do you think I need a standard Multi-Vitamin or anything else that will be beneficial to continued good health or stick with the Gold and monitor my progress…great site

  166. Matt Tut says:

    Hey, I am an 18 year old male who is looking to lose fat and gain lean muscle. I am looking to become more cut and stronger without becoming bulky. I already take a mutivitamin and protein. I was curious if I would recieve any benefits from taking the gold product or the one product.

    Thank you for your help

  167. Diane N. says:

    Great website! I just got a flyer in the mail from Journal of Health & Longevity which talks about Secretagogue hGH Plus. Is there a difference between Plus and Gold?

    Also, what do you think about DHEA? My boyfriend takes 50 mg. daily. I’ve read some bad things about it, and that you should definitely not take it every day, but cycle. He’s been taking it for years and will not stop. Very stubborn. Do you think Secretagogue would do the same thing.

    Thanks for your time.

  168. Diane N. says:

    Want to know what you think about Longevity. It doesn’t sound too promising.

    Let me know.

  169. hgh truths says:


    I think you will see good benefits from The Gold.

    A decent multiple vitamin is never a bad idea nor is a good anti-oxidant blend.

  170. hgh truths says:


    Save your money.

  171. hgh truths says:


    Hopefully you discovered that we reviewed both Secrtagogue Plus and Longevity.

    The dhea would work better for your boyfriend if he cycled it.

  172. Paul says:

    I currently take bee poolen capsules in the morning, if I take the Gold, should I stop taking the bee pollen supplement? I’m a weekend bike racing worrier, I take Optygen capsules prior to training and racing, can I still take both products, Gold & Optygen?

  173. hgh truths says:


    No reason to stop taking either the bee pollen or Optygen.

  174. Chris says:

    Great site! I have started taking secretagogue gold for one week and have noticed that I’m feeling groggy. I’m 36, work out 5 times a week, and take it before I go to bed at night. I mix my work outs between cardio and weights. Is there something I can take to help with the tired feeling?

  175. Phil says:


    Firstly a great website and i can see it is much appricated by all. I have posted it to many others :)

    Secondly can people please reads others’ posts seeing as many questions are already answered! Save these guys some time lol!

    One that is not…im 26 so i get the point on HGH levels not being at their lowest, but was wondering if secretagogue gold or another product could help. I am an athlete (runner) and in the past couple years have been suffering more injuries and fatigue. I train carefully and diet well but was wondering if this whole aging process could be wearing me down and one of these products could help? Im just after a neutral opinion!

    Many thanks

  176. hgh truths says:


    The groggy feeling could becoming from the increase in dopamine. Some people have that initial reaction. Usually your body adjusts itself as it gets used to the increase.

  177. hgh truths says:


    It is not going to hurt. Just be aware that it will not give you anywhere near the same percentage level of benefits as a 46 year old would get.

    A green super foods product that is not loaded with a bunch of extra herbal ingredients might help. Something heavy on spirulina, chlorella, kamut or barley grass.

  178. Alex says:


    Thanks for the great site, goldmine of information . I have bought few packages of Isotropin, but now ordered Secretagogue Gold. Thanks for saving my money as I can stick to the product that is worth it. (I am going to use Isotropin on the days when I cycle (off) secretagogue.)

    I am 42 y.o., I train in martial arts 4 times a week and play tennis once a week. My goal is simply maintenance of my body.

    I wonder if any research was done on how quickly levels of HGH drop after a person gets off HGH supplement. Will it make sense to take Secretagogue, let’s say, three months a year, three out of six months or just keep on taking it permanently?

  179. hgh truths says:


    There is no real research on this subject.

    You start out taking these supplements using basic cycling as we covered in the post on cycling.

    Over time you continue as it feels appropriate to you.

  180. Matt says:

    I’m 4 days into take the product and I do seem to be sleeping better(i.e. deeper, waking feeling more refreshed). Can I take this everyday, without a break? I don’t see anything about cycling in the directions. Can you post the ideal cycle for a first timer and beyond?

  181. Mike says:

    Thanks for all the inforamation, Admin – it has helped a lot!

    How does Secretagogue hGH Plus (Institude for Vibrant Living) compare to
    Secretagogue Gold? I went ahead and ordered (from Amazon) the Secretagogue Gold. Hope I have not been taking the wrong product.

  182. hgh truths says:


    You bought the right product. We did a review of Secrtagogue HGh Plus and it is a substantially inferior product.

  183. Eddy says:

    Hi and thanks for all of the responses they have helped me tremendously,
    My question is than I am currenty taking tha Animal PAK as a multi vitamin, however, i see in of the post before that you said the this multi vitamin is not that good, what can you recomend to stack with Secrtagogue ?
    I am 38 and currently working out 3 days out of the week.
    In addition, I am taking protein shakes to gain some mass weitgh.. 3 times a day
    At night before going to sleep I drink 16 oz of egg whites how will this be with taking Secrtagogue?

    Thanks in advance for your response

  184. chris says:

    There are lots of posts about athletic type endevores. Thats all very well and good. I’v been a semi-pro athlete for most of my life. This means I’m in good shape and do it for fun (now, at my age, anyway). I wouldn’t cry if i lost the extra 10lbs around the middle or if I got alittle stronger, faster and had more energy. However that isn’t my interest. There are so many wild claims out there who knows what to believe. You folks seem reliable and honest though.

    So how does this product, or any HGH for that matter, affect hair loss, hair regrowth, wrinkles, skin tightness, exc. You know all those shallow non-health vanity related things.

  185. chris says:

    also i would ask if you guys could review the product Longevity

  186. chris says:

    oops never mind that last one about Longevity, just found it.

  187. Candy says:

    Started on Pro HGH, Secretagogue One and Secretagogue Gold ten years ago. Used a combination. Whatever I could find. Felt great. Looked great. Stopped about four years ago. Not sure why. Feel bad. Look bad. Hit menopause. Decided I wanted to take Hgh injections. Seemed like a lot of tests and money. Did more research and circled back to what I have in the house, Secretagogue Gold. Started again this week. Looking for improvement in mental clarity, skin tone and overall well being. I’m a study of one.

  188. Tufan says:

    My fater (73) is having rushes all over after taking Secretagogue gold for two months, can it be a side effect of this product? Any advise?

  189. Eddie says:


    I am considering on getting Secretagogue Gold product. My deal is that I need to lose some weight, and build lean muscle “faster” :) I am 32, 6’4″, about 215 lbs.

    Would Secretagogue Gold be the good product for my purpose?

    Thank you!

  190. Eddie says:

    Oh…I forgot to mentioned that I am in the gym 5x a week. 3x a week lifting, 2x a week fat burn/cardio. This is all as September.

  191. hgh truths says:


    Any basic multi-vitamin will do the trick. You don’t need an over hype version.

    The protein from the eggs will completely destroy the absorbtion of the Secrtagogue.

    You cold try taking the Secretagogue 30 minutes before the eggs.

  192. hgh truths says:


    It does help with those “vanity” things. The exact results vary from person to person.

    I have seen people with gray hair have it grow in with full color. But I have also seen people with gray hair have it stay gray.

    The body seems to use the hormone increase for what it feels is best for the individual.

  193. hgh truths says:

    I try all sorts of different products and seem to keep coming back to Secretagogue Gold for personal use.

  194. Dawn says:

    What do you think of Secretagogue Gold Advanced Age Management System? I just wonder if it would be something good for my 70-year old mother. It’s probably the same as the regular product, but with extra vitamins…and extra $$$…no doubt.
    Too bad SG is not in pill form…much easier to take while stationed in a big sand box.
    Amazon does have a sale at $45 a box. I’m trying to see if there is a bargain offeredto buy a year’s worth. Anyone out there know???

  195. chris says:

    Thanx! My first order should be arriving soon. Thankfully I’m not aging too badely so I’m realy hoping it stops things from getting worse. I realy think that regular excersise plays a big part in physicly staying young, but it seems to me that adding an “inside-out” rutine would be a good idea so I’m realy hoping the “hype” is true.

    On a different note I think you have a great sight here. I would like to suggest some links to other sights that take as honest and forthright aproch to similar things. Such as hair loss, skin care, and *cough* down stairs. Those are just a few areas I’m sure most of your readers are strugeling to find unbiast sorces of info. Just a thought, keep up the good work.

  196. Eddie says:

    One more “news”. I just started taking Whey Protein & Creatine on daily basis. Is that safe with Secretagogue Gold product? Thanks…hopefully you’ll bet my three posts together :)

  197. Eddie says:

    Ah…one more addition. I also included Lipo-6 as a fat loss product on top of Whey Protein and Creatine. Hope Secretagogue Gold will work with it the three. Thanks again!

  198. hgh truths says:


    I don’t know. I would think that rushes are more likely to be an initial reaction.

    After two months, the question would be does he generally feel better? Are the rushes an unpleasant experience or feel threatening?

    You might want to have him cycle off the product and see what happens when he starts up again.

  199. hgh truths says:


    You are at the age where Secretagogue Gold can start to help. Just realize that it will not be as impactful as for someone who is 42 or 52.

    Secretagogue should not interfere with the other three products as long as you are not taking them all at the same time. The whey protein would inhibit the uptake of the amino acids.

  200. hgh truths says:


    Secretagogue Gold Advanced Age Management System is the long fancy form of the Secretagogue Gold name as printed on the box. It is the same product.

    This would be an OK product for your 70 year old mother to try.

    I don’t know of anybody that has a special year supply deal.

  201. chris says:

    Eddie 215 at 6’4″ doesnt sound that bad. I don’t know what your body composition is but try not to be overly critical of your body. I know what a slippery slope that can become. I don’t know what kind of lifting rutine your on. One thing for me is that once I hit my early 30s I had to change my lifting rutine. I’m not entirely shure why but for some reason my body stopped responding as well to a “bulking” rutine, BUT when I started putting on size when I switched to a “tonning” one. Crazy but true. Also give yourself a day off every week. You will see better results this way. The 30+ body just doesnt work like a 20 year old one.

  202. Eddie says:

    The thing is that I will be taking all three products at the same time; which is daily. Secretagogue Gold, Whey Protein and Creatine. Would you still recommend it?

  203. hgh truths says:

    You can take all three on the same day. You just need to take the Secretagogue gold on an empty stomach. plus you should only take the Secretagogue Gold 5 days per week.

  204. Mega says:

    I am 30 years old, male and from Switzerland. I have read that the hormone levels about a 20 years old men is about at 500. How I can reach this level?

    I have alopecia and I have recently received more gray hairs. Thanks for your help.

  205. Eddie says:

    Thank you folks! I’ll give it a try!

  206. I am 42 and going through premenopose with typical Symptoms like unexplained weight gain, headaches, mood swings, irregular periods…. I started taking Secretagogue Gold at the beginning of August. After 3 weeks I had much more energy, my skin was smoother and my hair dresser was asking what special hair treatment I was using because my hairs were soft and more bright.
    My headaches are now gone.
    Regarding my premenopause symptoms, my doctor is suggesting me to do an hormonal treatment and take natural progesterone supplementation.

    Should I stop taking Secreatgogue Gold if I take natural progesterone supplementation?

  207. mike says:

    I’ve learned a lot from this website – good job!

    I’m a 38 yr old male who does moderate weight training ~4 times a week. I started taking Gold a week ago. I take it in the mornings, because I sometimes eat late in the evening and wouldn’t have an empty stomach before going to bed. The first few days, it seemed to put me in a little bit of a pissy mood. That’s calmed down, and I think I’m adjusting to whatever it was. About an hour after taking it, I get real sleepy for about 20 minutes, and then I’m fine. Other than that, I hope to start noticing the benefits soon.

    Would it be a waste to double the dose each morning?

    Also, there’s a new product out called Cryotest. Do you have any info or opinions about this product?


  208. Bruce says:

    Hi, I am 27 yrs old and was wondering if the secretagogue gold would be o.k to take with a test. booster (t-bomb 2), I am seriously into training… weightlifting. The problem is i made the mistake of taking deca durabolin at the age of 22yrs old and did not take any postcycle therapy. I feel that my test levels have decreased as well as my sex drive. Do you think this hgh product will help or the combination of the two?… or is it a waste

  209. hgh truths says:


    Actually the levels of a 20 year old are a little high. The best level to try and maintain through life is closer to that of a 30 year old.

  210. hgh truths says:

    Your welcome Eddie.

  211. hgh truths says:


    It shouldn’t be a problem. Give it a try and see how you feel. Then adjust accordingly.

  212. hgh truths says:


    See how you do for a month or more before doubling up. It frequently is not necessary to take more.

    At first glance, Cryotest looks underwhelming.

  213. hgh truths says:


    The two products together should work if that is your thing.

    Try it for a short period and see what you think it does for you.

  214. mega says:

    Can I reach this level 450 – 500 (like 20 years old man), if I take secretagogue for 4 or 6 months? Did you make also a saliva (hormon test for HGH-Level? Can you confirm it?

  215. barbra love says:

    where can i buy the product?

  216. jay says:

    First I want to say what a great site this is, I want to take secretagogue gold with anterior pituitary. I was wondering if the extra HGH has a side effect that will make my hands, feet, and head grow/get fatter. Thanks

  217. Lani says:

    Which do you recommend. HGH surge or Secretagogue Gold? I am a 43 yr old female looking for some energy to get back into my workouts.

  218. Old Man Greene says:

    Over the last 4 months I have been on a exercise program (I’m 64 yrs old)..3 days of solid, intense weight lifting and now 6 or 7 days of cardio for 50 minutes a day..I take the following each day,,,Extra protein, Chromium Picolinate, Ginkgo Biloba, Prostrate Formula (with Saw Palmetto), Animal Pak, extra Vitamin C, Fish Oil/Flax Seed Oil, ZMA and have been taking Secretagogue Gold for the last month and a half..I’ve never felt this great since I was much younger..My question would be am I duplicating any thing, is the Secretagogue Gold still necessary or essential in my life or are the supps, herbs and vitamin enough..I guess I’m trying to figure out what’s making me feel so great…Jeff…Thanks

  219. hgh truths says:


    It is really all up to you.

    Cycle off the hgh supplement for a while and see how you feel.

    Maybe start up again and take it less often.

  220. Olga says:

    Hi there,
    Thanks for putting together this website. After reading some of the postings I am beginning to wonder if it would not be just simpler and more convenient to take any amino (say arginine) in enough dosage (at least 3 gr) before going to bed and just forget about all the HGH releaser products which are not only expensive but also 99% of the time a scam. I know because I purchased 3 bottles of GHR1000 before I ever found your website…

    Thinking about this I have come across a website where there is some useful information about arginine formulation (do’s and dont’s) and quite a bit of talk about the incompatibility between l-lysine and l-arginine and how “L-arginine taken orally without necessary co-factors promotes herpes simplex viral growth”. Having had the Epstein-Barr virus this is definitely a no-go for me. Is there another amino that you would recommend to use as a straight-forward releaser and performance booster in work-outs? And how much would be necessary to see any effects?


  221. Matt says:

    Could you please send me the link where you talk about stacking with SG? I’m wondering what options are out there….Thanks!

  222. lei spender says:

    i’m a 54 year old woman, post menopausal, generally healthy, no meds, mod exercise, a bit chubby, but very low libido. would this product help in this area?

  223. lala says:

    I feel like I will never lose those flabby bits on the belly, thighs, waist etc. I’m a over 50 lady who weighs in at 170 and 5’4″, decent energy, low sex drive. Would this stuff help me get a jump start?

  224. rudi says:


    switched from GHR1000 to secretagogue gold.
    what an overnite difference. wow
    does it matter if you take it in the morning.
    does alcohol consumption affect the benefits ?


  225. hgh truths says:

    Skip the arginine. If you just want one thing go for a arginine pyroglutamte/lysine combination.

  226. hgh truths says:

    lei spender and lala,

    Yes, hgh supplements could assist you.

  227. hgh truths says:


    Bedtime is better than morning.

    Minor alcohol consumption is not a problem but it doesn’t help if it is an hgh chaser.

  228. Laurent says:

    Hi again,
    can i add alpha lipoïc acid (300mg), Coq10 (100mg) & selenium (200mg) to this treatment?
    Thanks for your answer!

  229. angelo says:

    Hi.1. I would like to know if for instance I were to take this Secretagogue Gold for about 6-12 months(of course cycling 5 days on ,2 days off as mentioned) ,and then coming off the SG product would my growth hormone levels decrease to even lower than before I started taking the supplements or what?2. And also are these substances in this product really all natural that help in releasing more of the body’s own natural growth hormone?3. Or is there any synthetic components of HGH in these supplements? Thank you.

  230. angelo says:

    Also are these really safe to take or what? Thank you.

  231. Phil says:

    I notice that the Secretagogue One Contains the anterior pituitary. Is it one of the most risky parts of a cow that may induce mad cow disease?

  232. ja says:

    hope u are truthful folk!If u are ,,,seems like u put eveything down ecept this gold stuff ,,maybe u just work ,,,for them,,,if im wrong ,,,,”strange “that there are “good” peps still,1Lov

  233. angelo says:

    Hi so is there any chance at all that negative effects that sometimes happen with injectables will possibly happen with these supplements…like growth of organs and hands, feet, etc , or is everything perfectly safe with these products? And upon stopping taking these products will the body’s human growth hormone level decrease below what it was at before taking the supplements or what? Thank you.

  234. Rider says:

    I’m 23 and since only 3 year ago I was 20 I presume that I’m obviously still too young to take HGH products and see any significant gains. Question 1 is what is the earliest you suggest taking HGH supplements? 2 what supplements would you suggest for a young guy that is looking to gain 20 lbs in muscle weight?

  235. hgh truths says:


    Go right ahead. I am a firm believer in alpha lipoic acid and CoQ10.

  236. hgh truths says:


    1. When you stop taking a product such as SG your levels will eventually start to return to their original levels.

    2. The products we are recommending are combinations of vitamins, herbs and amino acids.

    3. Technically, all vitamins, herbal extracts and amino acids are synthetic. It is not like you are eating broccoli. There are no synthetic components of hgh or weird chemicals if that is what you mean.

    I wouldn’t take them if I didn’t think they were safe.

    Reputable companies source there pituitary ingredients from suppliers who carefully test and source the pituitary so the risk is minimal.

  238. hgh truths says:


    We have no financial interest in any company that makes hgh supplements and don’t work for any. We do know people who work for such companies or have done consulting work for such companies but that has no influence on the information we are providing.

  239. hgh truths says:


    The side effects from injectables only come from the taking of to large a dose. This is generally an individual decision to abuse ones self. You would have to take an awful lot of supplements to cause any damage to your body.

  240. hgh truths says:


    1. The starting point would be between 30 and 35 years of age .

    2. Protein supplementation, hard work and patience. Interestingly, it can be easier to put on muscle mass after youthful hormone levells drop.

  241. angelo says:

    Thank you for the prompt responses as when I research something , I need to know everything about it before I make a decision. I really appreciate your help. So just to clarify one thing , all those cases of people getting those major side effects(organs growing, feet, hands) that you hear about are due not only to the fact that injectables of GH were used but also were taken too much or abused? Thank you.

  242. Phil says:

    I tried Secretagogue Gold for 3 months and found no results of any kind.I figured I would see something or felt something im 50 years old and could use some results.

  243. Laurent says:

    Hi Again,
    Many thanks for your answer!
    Ok, i will add Alpha lipoic acid, COQ10 and selenium to my program but should i also cycle these product?
    Thanks in adavance.

  244. Josh says:

    Hi I noticed you told someone else of my age group that this could be bad for their health. I was wondering what you meant specifically by that. I mean it kind of scared me. I am male, 24 and looking to lower my body fat to below 8%. It’s currently at a little over 10% and I can barely see my abs. Thanks.



  246. Ashley says:

    First let me thank you for this informative site!!! Since you are knowledgeable about vitamins and herbs I looked through the questions and no one has asked anything about Insulin Resistance (aka Pre-Diabetes) and using HGH supplements for fat loss with using vitamins to stabilize blood sugar I wanted to know if you could help with my vitamin protocol and adding Secretagogue Gold. I apologize as this is a complex question so it is long but other people may get a lot of use from your answer as Insulin Resistance is becoming a huge problem.

    I am 34 year old female that was a competitive athlete with low body fat in my youth and maintained a healthy body weight without diet and exercise for most of my life until after a very stressful year I gained almost 30 pounds in three weeks and my body fat skyrocketed to a whopping 44% – three years later after many tests to rule out Thyroid disorders, Pituitary Disorders, cancer etc and thousands of dollars in medical bills they finally said that my borderline high cortisol levels (no tumor present) and inability to lose weight on a strict 1200 calorie a day diet with 6 hours a week of cardio was due to PCOS with Insulin Resistance brought about by severe stress.

    I am now 5 feet tall and weigh over 165 pounds even with a strict diet and exercise regime I can not lose weight only maintain my current weight if I stop exercising I gain weight within a week. I tried to take Metaformin with awful results – so for the past 8 weeks after doing a lot of research I am controlling my blood sugar levels with supplements and it has stabilized my blood sugar better than the awful prescription medicine. My doctor was impressed but I am still fighting pre-diabetes and the only thing that will help fully reverse the insulin resistance is to lose weight by reducing my body fat – but it is almost impossible for me to drop weight even while being medically supervised so he tested my IGF levels – I am just on the border of being able to get a prescription legally so he suggested that I try a natural product. He had recommended that I try Trans-D Tropin but after a lot of research I found your site and wanted to try Secretagogue Gold instead.

    Since you have a lot of knowledge on natural vitamins I wanted to let you know what I am taking (also if you feel something is too high of a dose and it is being wasted please interject as my doctor knows absolutely nothing about natural products or vitamins and the doses I am taking are based off of my own research)

    I start the day with a complex sugar blocker and wait between 15 and 30 minutes before eating or taking my other pills – would you know if this stops absorption of my other vitamins by any chance since it is a soluble fiber – do I need to allow a longer period before I take other vitamins?
    WellbetX – PGX with Mulberry (soluble fiber -complex & sugar blocker) 2 pills before I eat in the am – 2 pills before dinner

    Then 15-30 minutes later I take

    To help with extra estrogen from PCOS I am taking ( I have not started to ovulate again yet but my PMS has been almost eliminated)
    DIM-Plus by Nature’s Way (Diindolylmethane) 2 caps in the morning
    Calcium D Glucarate – 250mg – in the morning

    To help control my blood sugar throughout the day and it has been working I take
    Alpha Lipoic Sustain 300 with Biotin by Jarrow Forumulas (1 pill am and then 1 pill at night) – TOTAL 600mg daily
    Ultimate Omega 1000mg by Nordic Naturals (3 pills am – 3 pills pm) TOTALl epa 1950mg, DHA 1350mg, Oleic Acid 168 mg AM I TAKING TOO MUCH OMEGAS AND WASTING THEM?
    Natural E-Gems Vitamin E by Carlson (1 pill am) TOTAL 400IU
    Chromium GTF 1 pill daily TOTAL 200mcg daily

    If I feel my blood sugar spiking on occasion I add Cinnamon Bark from NOW 600mg and I have cut out 90% of wheat, flour and sugar from my diet – shouldnt I be losing weight by now??? Hence I would like to add Secretagogue Gold to my protocol to see if it can help reduce my body fat.

    It seems from my research the the ALA supplement I am taking could either interfere or Secretagogue Gold or help it – any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thank you so much for time!

  247. ed says:

    Great website. Thanks for the good work. I am an old guy–68, but I feel young and i’m in good physical and mental condition, and I work out regularly. After completing my research I am down to HGH Surge and Secretagogue Gold. Which do you recommend? BTW, is Secretagogogue a tablet or a powder? Thanks!

  248. hgh truths says:


    Yes, all the nasty side effects come from large doses of injectables. Yes, you really have to make the decision to take abusive amounts.

  249. hgh truths says:


    Most people see results by the end of three months some take longer. Some people notice effects very quickly. Not knowing much about your situation, it is hard to say.

  250. hgh truths says:


    I believe in cycling everything. Even if it is just to take one day a week off from all supplements.

  251. hgh truths says:


    I never said it would be bad for someone in your age group’s health. We just say that it will not do much good for someone in your age group’s health.

  252. hgh truths says:


    Secretagogue K-28 looks to be just another total scam hgh spray product. Not even worth wasting review space on.

  253. hgh truths says:


    There is a lot of health stuff there that we cannot legally touch. We have to keep it kind of general.

    If your doctor suggested Trans-D Tropin, he does not know what he is talking about.

    Your taking a lot of good stuff and if it is working for you, keep doing it.

    Test the Omega consumption levels by taking less and seeing if you notice any difference. Self experimentation is the best way.

    Hgh supplements are not really weight loss products but neither are most weight loss products.

    Find any way you can to manage the stress. Also look around for a doctor who is trained in Integrative Medicine. They would be of better assistance in finding a more natural path. Search for Andrew Weil and see if he belongs to an organization that can recommend somebody good.

  254. hgh truths says:


    Take your pick. I can never decide which one I like best.

    Secretagogue gold is a powder. Hgh Surge is a big tablet.

  255. Francisco says:

    Thanks a lot!.
    I was just about to buy an hgh suplement and started looking through the web for some choices untill i found a web site that explained that most of these products could be real scrap, so i simply decided to go to GNC to buy L-Arginine and the lady offered me Secretagogue Gold, i didnt bougth it because i was already aware that most of these products couldnt work.
    These morning i decided to look through the web to look for these product’s information and my search took me to these site. At the beggining i had many doubts regarding if the intaken of arginine could cause any trouble with the benefits of Secretagogue, my doubts are clear now, and all i have to say is THANKS.
    I hope these kind of sites were more common.

  256. David says:

    I am so glad to have found this website.
    I’m shorter than an average 15 year old male and Im 5′ 1″.
    I feel the pressure being short socially and also especially since I’m playing Basketaball and recently I can’t do the things I used to do when I was as tall as everyone.

    I take Sytropin HGH but you gave that product an F. Can you tell me what is right for me?

    Is this something I wanna take to grow taller??

  257. hgh truths says:


    There is no such thing as a pill or potent that is going to make you grow taller. Anybody claiming that they have such a product is a scam artist.

  258. marco says:

    Ive read as many comments as i could possibly read without going insane.
    From my understanding this product is best for the older crowd?
    I am 21, and currently bodybuilding. Im against all steroid usage but my friend keeps telling me about hgh, which is why i came here. This product got the sites best reviews.. but now i learn that its now great at all for bodybuilding?

    Please and thanks for confirming

  259. lisa says:

    I just purchased secretagogue gold for weight loss purposes besides the other great benefits. However I would like to loose 25lb or about 3 dress sizes in the next six months . So can you also recomend a good fat burner that I may conbine with this product. Thank you for your input. Oh I forgot to mention I am 39. Thanks

  260. David says:

    Ok but isnt there somethin special I can do?

  261. hgh truths says:


    These products will not give much in the way of results to someone who is only 21.

  262. hgh truths says:


    I am thinking about the fat burner question but my first reaction is that you are giving yourself enough time to lose the weight without having to use one.

    A good and healthy diet combined with plenty of aerobic exercise should do the trick. Maybe try drinking a little more green tea.

  263. hgh truths says:


    There is nothing special you can do that is going to make you grow taller.

    If you think you are hormone deficient, see an endocrinologist but that is an expensive route.

  264. Tommy says:

    What is your thoughts on a daily regiment of Secretagogue Gold that also includes omaga 3, multible vitamin and mineral, glucosamine and flaxseed oil. The Secretagogue is taken at night while the others are taken in the morning. Is this to much?

  265. beth says:

    This is for Sylvain, or others, like me, who were unable to sleep taking the Secretagogue One or Gold at night.
    Take it in the morning when you first wake up.
    Wait at least twenty minutes before drinking or eating anything else.
    Better if you workout 1/2 hour to an hour later.
    I also called MHP and asked if they had others taking it in the morning and they said, “Yes, and they get basically the same results”.
    I know it’s worked for me by taking it in the morning.
    Hope this helps.

  266. hgh truths says:


    On behalf of everyone, thank-you for providing this information.

  267. hgh truths says:


    I don’t think so. It looks good to me.

    My own morning regime includes a protein shake with assorted goodies in it.

  268. Tommy says:

    Thank you and good health.

  269. Marianne says:

    I was wondering something. I am 50 years old and work out daily.I do aerobics and weight training. I have taken Ultra Max Gold for six months and have seen definite results. These being energy, strength , and leaness. Since i took this product for the max recommended time,I started taking Secretagogue Gold a few days ago . The ingredients are different but i was wondering if I needed to take a break . I hate to lose the strength and energy that i have gained. Is it ok to take the Secretagogue Gold?

  270. hgh truths says:


    I would suggest taking just enough time off to get to the point where you feel that you are starting to lose energy and strength. Then start up again.

  271. I took off for about a wk . Is there any concern about continuing this soon? Since taking the Secretogue Gold (which has been about a wk or two) i have noticed that i am retaining some water. When I wake up in the morning, my fingers are swollen somewhat. My muscles are feeling tight and when i work out i experience an almost immediate pump which i have not experienced before. It used to take some time before….Is this normal? Thanks for your help.

  272. Chad says:

    Hi, thanks for the info guys. Just started reseaching HGH products, and releasers. Probably would have wasted some hard earned had i not stumbled upon this site. My question is this: I’m 21 and as you say my hgh levels are probably too high to benefit from any ntaural releasers. I currently cycle creatine for strength, intake roughly my weight(175 pounds) in protien g’s a day, use an no product before workouts for increased energy and focus. I am basically looking for any edge I can gain in esthetics, and function what could you suggest to increase growth while staying healthy? Also define please: ” a good green drink”

    Thanks so much.

  273. Dean Schmidt says:

    After going through your reviews on hgh, I purchased a 3 months supply of Secretagogue Gold. I am considering buying
    HGH Surge and cycling between the two products. Is there a sensible method of cycling that comes to your mind? Thanks for the HGH reviews, I could not have made a good selection without it.
    Regards, Dean Schmidt

  274. Vitacost sells Secretagogue Gold the cheapest I could find. Think its 45.

  275. Mike says:

    Have you looked at GHR by BIEHealth? I took it for several months. It seemed to help with weight control, but not much else. I’m going to try Secretagogue Gold. Hope it is more effective. I’m 58 and fairly active, but have struggled with my weight my entire adult life.

  276. Phil says:

    Is Secretogue Gold safe to take with prescription drugs? Lisinopril for high B.P. and Xanax for anxiety?


  277. evan says:

    not to be ignorant or anything, cuz i personally take secretagogue gold, but after a while won’t it become ineffective? Our bodies eventually become resistant to any kind of drug, and doesn’t that apply to secretagogues?

  278. hgh truths says:


    You are to young to get much benefit from an hgh releaser.

    By a good green drink, i mean a product like Green Magic. A killer superfood product. We are going to do a review of Green magic in the next few days so we can better explain the whole green drink concept.

  279. hgh truths says:


    I just did a short round of switching every week. Previously I have switched off every month. But then I have also taken them together just for fun.

  280. hgh truths says:


    Vitacost often has pretty good prices. Amazon sometimes has a really good deal but it has not been available for the last couple of months.

  281. hgh truths says:


    We have reviewed a number of the different GHR products. GHR is probably the worst of the bunch.

  282. hgh truths says:


    Probably not a problem with the blood pressure medication but you should monitor your blood pressure daily just to be sure.

    Xanax is another story because because Secretagogue Gold contains ingredients to raise your dopamine levels. A pleasant experience for most people but not sure how that mixes with the Xanax. Probably a very case by case basis.

  283. hgh truths says:


    If you are taking a one ingredient this would be very true.

    Secretagogue Gold attacks at least three different path ways to hgh release. if your body adjusts to one then it gets pushed more by the other two methods.

    If you notice a resistance then switch up products for a month or two.

  284. Mike says:

    I started Secretagogue Gold 3 days ago. I read in post 283 that it raises dopamine levels. Could this be the reason for my increased dreaming?

  285. Anne says:

    I am a 40 year old woman with a regular cardio workout (3-5 times a week). I recently purchased Secretagogue Gold for myself and for my mother. I drank the mix the the first night and woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible headache which lasted the whole day. I didn’t take it the second night and my headache went away. I thought I would try it again to see if it was a coincidence so I tried it again and the headache was even worse the second time. My mother isn’t experiencing the headaches and I’m wondering why this is happening to me. Perhaps I’m not drinking enough water? I am going to try to take it in the morning to see if there is a difference. Have you had anyone else who has experienced headaches?

  286. hgh truths says:


    Thanks for identifying the post. I never would have dreamed that there would be that many comments on this whole site let alone a single article.

    Dopamine can definitely be a reason for increased dreaming as can a deeper, more complete sleep cycle caused by increased hgh release.

  287. hgh truths says:


    First I have heard of someone having a terrible headache.

    Let us know how taking it in the morning works for you. Meanwhile I will think about some other suggestions.

  288. Candi says:

    Awesome Job here !!! I am going to order this product today, I am 37 would this be the best product for me? Also where is the best place to purchase this product so that you KNOW it is authentic some sites are scary ya know? fake products and all. Also would there be another product that you would suggest taking along with this? I noticed my estrogen levels are alot lower then used to be, will this product help? Any suggestions on ,mixing this with another?

  289. hgh truths says:


    This would be a good product to try first.

    Vitamine Shoope is a highly reputable online retailer that has a good price, $45.99, on Secretagogue Gold.

    Start with just this one prouct. The increase in hgh should stimulate the entire endocrine hormone cascade.

    Check back after 4 to 6 weeks if you still want more.

  290. Anne says:

    I tried the product in the morning the last two days and I didn’t get any headaches. Thanks!

  291. kelly says:

    Hi I am taking chantix to quit smoking will this product intefere at all, chantix also causes dreams at night, just wanted to check if it was okay to take with

  292. hgh truths says:


    Thanks for the report!

  293. hgh truths says:


    I am not familar enough with Chatrix to comment on any interactions. This is one of those check with your doctor questions. Sorry.

  294. Sal says:

    First, I would like to thank you for the info you provide on this website. Everyother site I have come across have been nothing but scams trying to sell useless products.
    I have been taking this product for a couple of months now, and I would like to start stacking it. What do you suggest stacking it with?

  295. Sal says:

    I forgot to mention I am a 31 year old male.

  296. Sandra says:

    I have just started to take Secreta-a tropin by Elite nutrients. I am 61 yr old woman. When might I notice any change in the way I feel or look? I did not see it on the list of products that you reviewed. Can you tell me your opinion of the ingredients? It contains the following 5 amino acids:

    L- Glutamine……….6g
    L- Arginine………….1g

  297. Sandra says:

    Why would someone get a severe headache from Secretagog Gold?

  298. Whit says:

    I’m trying to gain some more muscle mass by lifting weights and was wondering if you would suggest using this product as a supplement, or would you think the sheer amount of amino acids in the Life Renewal HGH supplement would be more valuable.

  299. hgh truths says:


    We will soon be writing about a number of different possibilities. For now, try a couple of grams of OKG.

  300. hgh truths says:


    Secrete-a-tropin is close to Maxi-HGH but appears to be twice as expensive.

    You probably won’t really notice results for 1 to 4 months.

    I don’t know why Anne experienced a headache. She did report back that she had no headache when she took it in the morning.

  301. hgh truths says:


    That is an age dependent question. 35 and over, go with the Gold. Under 35, go with the straight amino acids.

  302. Gaz says:

    Hi all does anybody know anything about this product Longevity Real HGHR.

    I am coming up 39 and looking for a decent product that will show actually work.

  303. Brian C says:

    HGHT, I’m 37 yrs old, and I’ve been on Secretagogue Gold For 2 weeks now (5 on 2 off cycle) and liking the results. Have you ever gotten any more answers from MHP on exact amounts of ingredients? I’m just curious if you think an additional 500-1000mg/day of L-Lysine would be of any benefit(I have a full bottle). If so, would I take it with the SG or with my vitamins in the daytime? Also, I have a very hard time taking it on an empty stomach, since I get home late and usually eat 1 hr prior to bedtime. Thanks!

  304. Sandy says:

    Hi: First, like to say, Great Site! Unfortunately I found the site to late and bought GHR 1000 and Longevity but since bought Secretagugue Gold. How can I stack these products to get the biggest bang for my buck? By the way I’m 55. Thanks, Sandy

  305. hgh truths says:


    We reviewed Longevity months ago. You can find it on the Big List of HGH Supplement Reviews.

  306. hgh truths says:


    I doubt they will ever provide the exact ingredients.

    If you have some lysine to use up there is nothing to lose by taking an extra 500 to 1000mg and should be some boost.

    If bedtime just does not work, try very first thing in the morning trying not to eat or drink anything but water for 30 minutes.

  307. hgh truths says:


    GHR1000 is such a weak product that you could take a full dosage along with the Secretagogue Gold to use it up.

    Because if the pituitary dosage in Longevity, I would suggest half dosages.

    Maybe use up some HGH1000 for a week and some Longevity the next week then repeat the cycle.

  308. Candi says:

    Hi, Just to verify I started my cycle today so I want to do 5 days on and then 2 off for 30 days correct? also when do you stop and start after the whole 30 days of taking it or a total of 30 days which means you only did 20 packs? Probably confusing you but if you stop after 30 days that would be only taking 20 days worth, also I think I read in here somewhere something about taking whey protien while on segretagogue or did that mean together? I take whey at breakfast and sometimes luch this is okay or not?

    • hgh truths says:

      I would go the full 30 packets worth which would be six weeks.

      Protein supplements such as whey protein are fine as long as you DO NOT take them with The Secretagogue Gold. Breakfast or lunch, no problem.

  309. Candi says:

    thank you so much for all your info, I will be reporting back with results. talk to you soon.

  310. Shawn says:

    Hi, great site and many thanks for your dedication in providing extensive HGH information. Question: I’m about to start my first cycles of Secretagogue Gold and Maxi-HGH. Will taking Maxi-HGH directly after my workout (6:00 PM) interfere with the Creatine Monohydrate (Phosphorous HP) I’m taking just before my workout? Thanks

    • hgh truths says:

      I don’t see any problem. The creatine would have had full uptake into the system before the workout so there should be no conflict with taking Maxi-HGH after.

  311. Marianne says:

    After taking Secretagogue Gold for a month, I have noticed that my fingers are swollen in the morning . I seem to be retaining water. Is this normal? I take it for 5 nights and off for 2 nights.

    • hgh truths says:

      Hmmm… Some swelling and water retention would not be that abnormal. It depends on the extent and/or if the condition continues throughout the day.

  312. Keith says:

    Amazing site…

    Two quick questions. First I am 31, and know that this product is tailored to those over 35. Would it be a bad move for me to take this? I work out 4 to 5 times a week and looking for the positives that an HGH product such as this may bring…

    Secondly, if this is a good product for me to try how many packets a day would I take? All of the items written about the product state to take it at night or before meals, but how much?

    Thank you for the help!

    • hgh truths says:

      ALL growth hormone supplements should say that they are designed for people over 35. The ones marketing to people who are younger are just trying to make a buck.

      it is not a bad move to take the product if you are a little bit younger. You should just be aware that the results won’t be as great as if you were 10 years older.

      You really only need to take one packet per day. The best time to take it is before bedtime. Second best time to take an hgh hormone supplement is first thing in the morning. You want to take growth hormone supplements 30 minutes before a meal or two hours since last eating anything. Longer from a meal is better.

  313. Brian says:

    So if you’ve had a snack, a beer, anything within an hour or two of going to bed, wait til morning? Since taking it at night will help you sleep better, (I’ll vouch for that!) I don’t want to take it in the morning and be tired til noon. If I do, no food, coffee, anything for a 1/2 hour and it should work just about as well as taking on an empty stomach at night? Also, If I understand right, the proper cycle for most people is 5 on 2 off for 12 weeks(2 boxes of 30 pkts) then off for minimum 7 days to 30 max, or do you go 18 wks? Again, thank you very much for ALL the info on the site.

    • hgh truths says:


      You got the idea down perfectly. If you stomach is actively working on digesting something it will mess with the uptake of the growth hormone supplement.

      I would go for the break at 12 weeks. This will give you better long term results from your growth hormone therapy.

  314. Keith says:

    I really appreciate the help… Thank you again much appreciated.

  315. Scott E says:

    Thank you for the great site! I have found it very informative.

    I am 35, and have lost 85lbs over the past year. I am back to playing baseball in a mens semi pro league and am following an exercising program.

    I am 6ft tall and 212lbs. My Doc says with my stature I should weigh around 205. These final 7lbs are STUBBORN!!

    Currently, I am taking the following:

    1) Glucosamine (4500mg daily)/Chondroitin (3600mg daily)

    2) Omega 3 Fish oils (3000mg daily)

    3) Vitamin E (400 I.U. daily)

    4) 1 Baby Aspirin daily

    5) Multi Vitamin

    6) Reliv Now Supplement @ Breakfast (2 scoops with 20oz Green Tea)

    7) MHP’s “Dren” in the morning

    My meals generally include:

    Breakfast: Reliv Now with a banana

    Lunch: Reliv Now, and a salad

    Dinner: Baked Chicken Breasts (with sauerkraut 3x a week)

    Do you think adding “Secretagogue Gold” would be a benefit to my supplements? Would there be any adverse reactions to stacking it with “Dren”?

    And finally, have your “Test Subjects” notice any benefit of “Secretagogue Gold” aiding in firming up the skin?

    Again, thanks for the website, it has been very educational.


    • hgh truths says:

      Scott E,

      Those stature charts seem to want people to be ultra skinny. Recent reports seem to show that a small numbers of extra pounds actually make a person healthier.

      Secretagogogue Gold could be a good addition because it serves a purpose that is entirley different than the rest of the things you are taking.

      Drenbuterol-Dren is just one of those weird supplements so combining them is up to you.

      Growth hormone supplements have different benefits for different people. I have seen some people with gray hair get their color back when other people do not. Some people report firmer skin and some do not. The greatest number of reports regarding firmer skin seem to come from women. Maybe because they are paying more attention.

  316. Mark says:

    Well, to start, I’m a personal trainer and have seen people get mixed results from tons of different things, to the point that I’m unsure of what I should be taking. Currently, I take medication for ADD which is a pretty good appetite suppressant, I also take Clenbuterol and I’m planning on ordering some Secretagogue Gold. Should I be worried at all about the different things overlapping?

    • hgh truths says:


      Sorry. We are not going to touch this one with a 50ft pole. You are talking about whether taking a prescription medication with a controlled substance conflicts with a dietary supplement.

      Clenbuterol is iffy in the best of circumstances and can have some very strong negative side effects. Combining clen with an ADD drug probably means to forms of speed at once. Why not just snort crystal meth?

  317. Mike says:

    Can someone who’s 24 expect to see much benefit from using this type of product?

    I play semi-pro football and we don’t really get tested for anything so I’m looking to see what I can use to get a slight edge so I can impress some NFL scouts…

  318. byrd says:

    is this a good company to buy the MHP Secretagogue gold from?

  319. Shawn says:

    Thanks for the previous answer on the creatine question. One more for you – do you think taking Maxi-HGH and Secretagogue gold at night before bed is too much at once? Or should I consider taking them at different times throughout the day?
    Thanks again for this great site.

    • hgh truths says:

      Start with just one product and then add in some of another when you cycle later on. Do this at some point when you feel like you have plateaued. We keep saying that more is not always better.

  320. William says:

    i had started with secretagogue gold 4 weeks ago and im also using vit code 50 & wiser, gold at night and vits in the morning,for the past 2 weeks i have been having consist pressure in the back of my head ,lower left, and i take a little tylenol ,i have been taken tbomb 2 and my vit, and a herbal mix and with no negitive side affects , when i switched to the secret and just my vit’s ,the headache has come on any suggestions im white male ,46, and 255 lbs in good shape

    • hgh truths says:


      It is hard to say. A headache could be as much a result of having stopped taking products your body i9s used to as much as it is from taking something new.

      Stop for a few days and see if the headaches go away. If they do, start up again and see if they come back.

      Somebody else reported having a headache at night but it went away when she tried the product in the morning.

      I have never had this problem with Secretagogue Gold. I have gotten headaches from some testosterone boosters that increased blood pressure.

  321. Dan says:

    I’m 35 years old, don’t smoke, rarely drink, and in excellent heatlh, and I just started taking Secretagogue Gold. I hope to review this product for myself over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for my results! Thanks!

  322. Matt says:

    Is it ok to drink diet soda at night before taking SG, or does this violate the “empty stomach” rule?

    • hgh truths says:


      No soda would be better but it won’t be a big problem because their is nothing to digest with a diet soda. I sometimes use diet juice flavored powder to make some powder mixtures more palatable.

  323. Matt says:

    So if I take SG at 9pm, and I switch to just water at 8pm, am I optimizing benefits?

  324. Kingsley says:


    How’s it going with the HGH product?

    Can u provide any reviews? Would appreciate it


  325. Kevin says:

    Hello, I am a 21 year old male and I was looking into possible HGH supplements. I am looking for something that could help me get a little taller (I hit 5’10” at 14 and haven’t grown since) and could help in muscle building. I read your previous answers saying that for a guy my age results with Secretagogue Gold would be minimal. Is there anything you suggest that could help me grow an inch or two and add some muscle? Thank you so much for all your help!

    • hgh truths says:

      There is nothing that is going to help you grow any taller.

      The best thing for muscle building is extra protein and dedicated mixed weight workouts.

  326. anthony says:

    hi, im very grateful to this sight, i was wondering that if i keep eating protien, watch my carbs work out with cardio and resistence training would sg help me shed the fat and gain lean muscle in other words is this product for me
    im 28 years old, 6’1 and half 265 pounds solid but still with alot of excess fat
    thank you

  327. james says:

    can you please tell the websie for Secretagogue One ? iM JUST MAKING SURE THAT IM GETTING THE REAL THING..


  328. Gerry says:

    I’m 39 and started taking Secretagogue Gold a few weeks ago and am doing the 5 days on and 2 days off cycling.

    I’m in good shape and this has been awesome for me.

    I can tell you that I immediately started sleeping through the night much better. I also feel better overall. It’s hard pin it down but I’m sold on it.

  329. Rob B says:

    Hello All,

    I am 55 years young and started taking Secretagogogue Gold a little over a month ago. I am half way into the first week of my second months box. However, I missed a week in the first month as I went on vacation and was concerned about taken the packets through airport securities xray machine out of fear I would harm the contents. I take other supplements, but no other HGH enhancers.

    I have no reports of good or bad results at this point. And I don’t expect to see any notifiable changes until 3 – 6 months has passed and brought a six month supply to support this expectation. I will say I am surprised how good the stuff tastes compared to the straight amino mix I took for a short while twenty years or so ago. That stuff would gag a horse!

    I wish to address the issue of cycling Secretagogogue Gold. According to its developer, Dr.Vincent Giamapapa, Secretagogogue Gold does not have to be cycled and can be taken daily without interruption safely and effectively.

    The below is directly from Dr. Giamapapa’s FAQ Section, Question #10:

    10. Do you have to cycle Secretagogue-Gold™?

    Secretagogue-Gold is unique because it stimulates your body in a natural fashion. Because of this, there is no need to cycle Secretagogue-Gold. The daily use of Secretagogue-Gold is recommended for maximum long-term benefits.

    Up to this point, except for the period when I was away on vacation, I have been taking the product without any cycling breaks. Any comments regarding this is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks so much!


    Robert B.

    • hgh truths says:

      Rob B,

      Straight aminos are usually harder to get down that a shot of cheap whiskey.

      Despite what the brochure says, everyone I know says that you get better results with cycling. This has also been my personal experience.

  330. anthony says:

    was there something wrong with my question

  331. Rob B says:

    hgh truths,

    Thanks for your comments. For my clarification, how many days weekly do you cycle off of the product?

    What I didn’t say in my first post is in the first month I didn’t exercise at all. Now I am working out with an elliptical walking machine for fat burning. I am adding body weight toning exercises starting in a week or two.

    My plan is to ease myself into what will become a five/six days a week routine of three days of fat burning and muscle toning and two or three days of only fat burning workouts.

    Past experience tells me jumping into a full bore workout program will result in me burning myself out and stopping the exercise program.

    Been there, done that.

  332. hgh truths says:


    Nothing wrong with the question. We just missed it when answering a number of comments.

    At your age Secretagogue Gold won’t hurt but you are not in the sweet zone of age where it has the greatest effect.

  333. anthony says:

    i appreciate, what would u recomend for someone my age and my criteria to help my gain lean muscle and burn fat?

  334. hgh truths says:


    Just keep doing what you are doing. Make sure not just to watch the carbs but also the total calorie intake.

    One weight loss trick is to throw in some very low calorie days each week. Like ever second or third day. Take good protein supplement as shakes and keep the rest of your calories as low as you can handle. Your metabolism will still be burning calories like a normal day. You can probably drop an easy extra pound a week this way.

  335. Brian B. says:

    First of all, great website. A half hour on this website probably saved me couple hundred bucks.
    You mentioned several times that this isn’t really a product for young people. So what in your opinion is an optimal product for 19/20 year olds – be it for building some muscle, shedding some fat, or to crank out a couple last centimeters of growth?

    • hgh truths says:

      Brian B.,

      Glad we could keep you from wasting money.

      The best thing for 19/20 year old is exercise and plenty of protein. Nothing is going stimulate any extra centimeters of growth that are not already genetically programed.

  336. Ollie says:

    Once started, do you have to take this product forever?

    thanks for great website

  337. Ollie says:

    I should have been clearer, although i expect it’ll be a difficult question to answer..

    Once you start taking it, lets say for a few months and then stop, do you instantly lose any of the benefits that you may have got while on it?

    2nd. do your natural hgh levels fall back to a level that was below the level of when you started because your body has been relying on a booster?

    3rd, just asked a doctor about it, he said the ammount of hgh that would get through the stomach into the bloodstream would be so minimal, it would be pointless.

    What are your thoughts? thanks

    • hgh truths says:

      When you stop you do not instantly lose any benefits.

      Your levels do not fall below the levels were you started. They are usually higher but will start drifting to a new equilibrium after awhile. Only natural because you keep aging.

      With a product like Secretagogue Gold you are not taking any actual hgh. You are taking nutrients that stimulate the bodies own natural release of hgh.

  338. J Rob says:

    I’m 33, for the last 3 yrs I stopped playing basketball and working out, i’m 6’1 and weigh 220 lbs, will this product along with whey protein help me to achieve my ideal weight of 190 lbs, I’m currently working out but the problem is lack of energy, I know that it will take some time for this product to work but at 33 will I see any results?

    • hgh truths says:

      J Rob,

      I personally saw results taking hgh secretagogues at 33. (Secretagogue Gold did not exist then.) They were not as pronounced as the benefits I saw doing a cycle at 43.

  339. Ellie says:

    Hello, My Secretagogue Gold package arrived a couple of days ago. I wasn’t expecting such a large box!! In any event, I notice it says that the best time to take it is 2-3 hours after a meal at bedtime and that it is best to have an empty stomach. My question is really, is it the before bedtime or empty stomach that is the most important? I can take it 2-3 after a meal before bedtime but I don’t feel hungry at time so am guessing that I don’t have an empty stomach. Is this a problem i.e. do you have to take it when you are hungry? If that was the case then I would really need to take it in the morning but I would like to obviously get the maximum results. Sorry if this sounds like a really scatterbrain question! Am just conscious that for the price I’d like to get the most out of the product since it has such great reviews!

    Thanks, Ellie.

    • hgh truths says:


      You don’t have to feel hungry to take it. 2-3 hours after a meal is good enough because unless it was a huge meal your stomach is generally done with most or all its part in the digestion process.

      The bedtime thing is because the greatest natural release of hgh comes during the first cycle of sleep. So you are stimulating the pituitary to increase that release. Morning is not a bad time either just a few percentage points less good.

  340. Ellie says:

    Hi, thanks for replying so quickly! This site really is fantastic! I am a 29yr old female and predominantly wanted to start on SG for it’s anti-ageing benefits. Do you think it’s too early i.e. when I really need it my body won’t respond to this kind of supplement at a later date or do you think it will just slow the ageing process down? In terms of tiredness etc. I am always pretty shattered and I don’t know what other people my age feel like but I definitely don’t feel like a ‘spring chicken’ anymore! Thanks, Ellie

  341. Ellie says:

    Hi, Sorry for another question, can I just confirm that you take this for 12 weeks (5 days then 2 off) and then have a 12 week break and then start over again? Many thanks!

  342. Ellie says:

    Hi, thanks – the article was really helpful! I now have a good idea what I’m doing!

  343. Tonya Tyler says:

    I’m considering buying this for my 37 yr old fiancee who is always complaining of lack of energy and tiredness. He also complains of being cold all the time which I think is a result of low thyroid (even though that has come back normal). He drinks and smokes and I read on another site that doing so could keep these products from working. Is that true and if so is there anything else he can take to combat this.

    • hgh truths says:


      Drinking and smoking never really help anything. Well moderate drinking is Ok but regular smoking is just a one way path to rapid aging. These supplements will still work.

  344. dixon says:


    im 30 years old 5′ 6″ 185lb. I havnt worked out in 10 years and want to get back into it. I need to loss 20 lb but find my self unable to hole a good diet. will this product help jumpstart my body and get back on track with a good work out? also what could i combine to help me reach my goel? thank you

    • hgh truths says:


      You are just starting to approach the age bracket were these hgh supplements help. It is all a head game though. No supplement is going to manage your diet and get you working out. You need to make that choice yourself.

  345. Allen says:

    Are there any known issues with taking this product in conjunction with creatine mono-hydrate?

    • hgh truths says:


      No known issues with taking along with creatine though for effectiveness it is better not to take hgh supplement at the same time.

  346. Jan says:

    I’ve taken Secretagogue Gold for two nights and have had a hard time staying asleep. It seemed like I was awake all night or in some kind of light “twilight” sleep. Got through the day ok, but not looking forward to another disturbing half-awake night. Is this common? Is there anything I can do about it. My husband had the same thing the first night and I can’t get him to try it again. Help! We need our beauty sleep but want that fountain of youth.

    • hgh truths says:


      Secretagogue Gold tends to increase dopamine levels which can give some people the experience you are describing. Usually it goes away when you get used to the product.

      You could always switch to taking the product first thing in the morning.

  347. Lisa says:

    OK Guys I need some help here as I dont know what to do.I’m 40 years old and 5’2 weigh 139lb. I’ve been taking Secretagogue Gold steadily now for 3&1/2 months every night before going to bed on an empty stomach . I have seen some nice results as far as my skin looks better and I have lost 11lb . Also my muscle tone looks better and I have lost some inpressive inches. I go to the gym 3 times a week lift for 1 & 1/2 hr and I do the tred mill for 40 inutes . I have also cut my calories to 1000 per day and also cut my fat intake and no soda or soft drinks. Now for my big dilema for the past 2 weeks I get up in the morning and feel light headed most of the day. I feel as if I was out drinking heavely the night before and have a bad hang over. I dont drink alcohol at all. Also I have the shakes. Like my hands shake. And my ears buzz and they are clogaged as if when you climb the altitude all of a sudden . I have stopped taking the Secretagogue Gold for 2 weeks and the symptoms stopped . I started taking it again for the past 2 days and my symptoms came back. I also take a multi vitamin and fish oil. Can it be something else like the vitamins. I dont want to go to my doc and explain to him what I’m taking . Can you help me and give me some input or idea of what may be going on. Your advice would be verry apreciat it. Am I not eatting enough? I like this stuff but I cant keep feeling like this. Any sugestions? Thank you for your input. Lisa

    • hgh truths says:

      Strange that you took the product for months and were fine then have a reaction now.

      First thing to try would be to see what happens when you take it first thing in the morning. If that doesn’t cause a change then stop taking the Secretagogue for awhile and switch to a straight amino acid product like Maxi-hgh.

      1000 calories is pretty low. if you do that for very long, your body starts to slow down the metabolism which can make it harder to lose weight. One way to trick your body is to eat at a slightly higher calorie level for three days and then on the 4th day eat as little as possible.

  348. Tim says:

    Could you buy secretagogue one and secretagogue gold and use each product every other day? example one on monday, gold on tuesday, one on wed, gold on thurs, one on friday take the weekend off and start with gold on monday and so on so you would be taking both of the products because you said you liked them both but you wish there was a product that had the anterior and the alpha. and if you rotate it this way you arent taking the same one on the same day every week. Even if you dont know if this will work is it safe for me to try this?

    • hgh truths says:

      Start with one product. Take it for awhile and see what you think. Then try the second product for awhile and see what you think.

      Then get complicated if you must. Though it makes more sense to rotate on a monthly basis.

  349. Mike says:

    I got my first box of Secretagogue-Gold this afternoon. I’m trying to understand a few things. I eat dinner around 6pm. I have a handful of nuts around 8:30. so 10:30-11 is optimal time for me to take Secretagogue-Gold. That is no problem. I also take ZMA before bed. Is it okay to take ZMA at the same time I take Secretagogue-Gold?

    I also have a 1 scoop Casein Protein shake an 30 min. after I take my ZMA. Will my Casein Protein shake mess up the effects of Secretagogue-Gold?

    Any suggestions?

    • hgh truths says:

      ZMA should not mess with the Secrtetagogue Gold. It would be better to give a few more minutes before the protein or take it at a different time of day. #0 minutes would be the absolute minimum.

  350. Mike says:

    I should’ve given more info I think. I’m 36 years old. I work out 3 times a week. I have been working out for over 3 years now. I was 270lbs when I started and I lost 90 lbs. Now I’m right around 190lbs.

    Last night I had my Secretagogue-Gold 2 hours after dinner. 30 min later I took my ZMA. an hour later I had my Casein Protein shake right before bed. Do you think this is good? I know I read on here not to take Secretagogue Gold with the protein.

    My supplements:
    Whey Protein
    Casein Protein
    Tribex Gold – natural Test booster
    Secretagogue Gold

    • hgh truths says:

      The second comment you made some how got dumped into a spam filter.

      The routine you you describe is perfect. The same time thing means at the exact same time. Just like food, the protein would interfer with the uptake of the ingredients in SG. Most of the ingredients in Secretagogoue Gold are essentially into the syatem within 30 to 45 minutes.

  351. Mpstat says:

    L-Citrulline when combined with L-Arginine results in a benefit for cardiovascular health. I am taking Secretagogue Gold already. Does it make sense to start taking L-Citrulline&L-Arginine at different time of the day then SG, or SG already provides similar benefits and no extra L-Citrulline&L-Arginine needed. Thanks!

    • hgh truths says:


      The Gold does its thing pretty well. A large dosage of L-Citrulline and L-Arginine at another time of day is not a bad thing but might run into the zone of supplement taking for the sake of taking more supplements. So I would put it under the heading of being an individual call.

  352. Dan says:

    To all you short 20 year olds who want HGH to make them grow…
    I grew 3+ inches when i was 22 years old after being 5’9” for 8 years.
    Also I am different Dan from the “illigal” guy

  353. Lisa says:

    Thank you for you advice . I apreciat the fact that you got back to me . I will defenetly try taking the Secretagogoue in the morning. I didnt know I could do that. I really love this stuff. Like I sayd I’m 40 always had oily skin and acne even at my age , this stuff dried up my skin to a very aceptable level and my acne is soooooooo much better. My skin is much softer and britter. My hair which grows very slow has not only grown 2in in the last month but is also very soft even my hair dresser asked what em I doing. I have very nice muscle tone . I’m feelig overall better and more energy and my husband is extremely happy with my labido. I dont want to stop taking the Secratagogoue but I didnt have anyone to turn to. My husband who is 45 and has been a weight lifter since he was 15 and still has the body of a 30 year old is not an advocate of me taking anything even tough of course he takes stuff. So I cant talk to him. So thank you soooo much for your advice.

  354. Lisa says:

    Also where can I get the Maxi-hgh?

  355. Ron M says:

    HGH truths TEAM

    I take Casine protein (slow digest ) at 7:00 PM. When is a good time to take Secretagogue Gold -IS 9:00 -ok? or should i wait til later

    Thanks in advance.

  356. Kyle says:

    I am 19 years old and a college student. I’ve been doing research on HGH since I have to write a paper on it for one of my classes. After reading into it for countless hours I am now considering taking it to improve my overall lifestyle (energy, sleep, lifting, injuries, etc). However there is one more question I’d like to be answered before I would take serious steps in purchasing secretagogue gold. After taking this product, would my body stop naturally producing as much HGH and therefore ultimately be detrimental to my body?

    • hgh truths says:

      The answer to your question is no. However, you need to read a few more of the comments on this site. You will then find out that taking Secretagogue Gold is basically a waste of money for a 19 year old.

  357. Kyle says:

    yes thats the conclusion I ultimately expected to come to, however could you give any specifics on any even if minimal, benefits that would come from using it at this age. It would be great help as I have to compare and contrast the benefits at age 20, 35, 55, and 65. Thank you!

    • hgh truths says:

      The results for a 20 year old are so minimal that they are not really worth mentioning. A good protein drink with a dose of green super-foods would be much more effective.

  358. Fred says:

    Ok I am 20 years old and playing football for a JC and after you say that this is a waste of money for young people, what would you recommend to take to get stronger at a quicker rate? Or do we need to take various things together for this? as I am trying to get results asap due to the high competition. thanks

  359. christine says:

    i apply Emerita Pro-Gest Natural Progesterone Cream before the bed time, is that ok taking Secretagogue Gold at that time?

  360. Cheryl says:

    I have used Secretagogue Gold for the first time the past 2 nights and like Jan who posted earlier, I too experienced disturbed sleep. I felt wired both nights and just didn’t feel like I ever got into a deep REM sleep. Last night I tried taking 3 mg. of Melatonin for the first time but it didn’t seem to help my sleep at all. I will try taking the Secretagogue in the morning as you suggested to Jan. But I have also had another symptom that I could not see anyone else has posted about. I woke up this morning with an extremely aching shoulder joint. I have never had pain there before and did not do anything to strain or injure it. I had read that a clinical trial was done several years ago on another secretagogue product and a small percentage of the participants experienced transient joint and muscle pain. Do you know of anyone who has taken the Secretagogue Gold who have experienced this as a side effect? The clinical trial said the participants only exhibited these symptoms in the “initial” stages of taking the product, whatever that means. I am 46 years old, 5’3″ 110 lbs., exercise everyday and am in pretty good shape but I had a blood panel done because I was freezing cold all the time and my IGF1 level was in the very low but still normal range for my age. I want to give this product a chance. Would you recommend me continuing it for a month (5 days on, 2 days off) and seeing if I continue having the joint pain, or would you recommend me stopping it? I don’t know if this makes any difference, but I forgot to mention that I recently (three months ago) began HRT with bioidentical estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and T4/T3 for my thyroid as my blood panel showed I was extremely low in all of these. Under my doctor’s supervision I am also taking 50 mg. DHEA, 100 mg. 7 Keto DHEA, and 200 mg. Pregnenolone. Could any of these be interacting with the Secretagogue Gold to make me wired at night and/or cause joint pain?

  361. Cheryl says:

    I am 46 years old, 5’3″ 110 lbs, exercise daily and am in fairly good shape. However, I have been freezing cold 24/7 this past year and finally had a fairly comprehensive blood panel work-up to see why. It showed very low thyroid, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, IGF1 and DHEA levels. For the past 3 months, under the doctor’s supervision, I have been receiving hormone replacement therapy with bioidentical hormones, including my thyroid. As part of the doctor’s regimen for me, I am also taking 50 mg. DHEA, 100 mg. 7 Keto DHEA and 200 mg. Pregnenolone each morning. My question is about possible side effects of Secretagogue Gold. I just started taking it three nights ago and like Jan, who posted earlier, I found I am not sleeping soundly. I feel wired and just don’t seem to be able to get into a REM sleep. I will try switching to the morning as you suggested for her, but I have a question about another possible side effect. I woke up this morning and one of my shoulders was aching pretty badly. I have never experienced this problem before and have done nothing to strain or injure it. I had read on another site about a clinical study involving another secretagogue product in which 28% of the participants experienced “initial” transient joint and/or muscle pain. Has anyone ever mentioned to you about having aching joints or muscles after starting Secretagogue Gold and would you recommend I take it a bit longer–perhaps an entire month cycle (5 days on, 2 days off) to see if persists? One more question–would Melatonin cause any problems with the Secretagogue? I tried taking 3 mg. last night to see if would help balance out the “wired” feeling the Secretagogue gave me but it didn’t seem to do anything.

  362. John1104 says:

    Very nice site!

  363. Tony says:

    I was researching DHEA & came across your site. I’m 42 & have been training since I was thirteen I dabbled with gear (parabolin & testoviron depot – Scshering) in the early nineties & am still in good shape. Even today people accuse me of being on gear which is fantastic for my ego! Saw your superb write up on Secretagogue Gold & now want to try it. But, where can I order it & know it’s quality gear & not blank? I used to buy from my mates who were pro’s. Any advice given will be accepted without any liability on your part.

    Many thanks

    • hgh truths says:

      We are working on a list of good places to buy supplements but it is more US centric and I am not sure about the UK. Any reputable online vitamin supplement company that carries it should be selling the real thing. Not worth the trouble to counterfiet Secretagogue Gold. Not as profitable as fake steroids.

  364. Cheryl says:

    Sorry to ask again, but I posted a question yesterday and when I submitted it, it didn’t show that it posted–it just disappeared so I re-posted it without listing a website and the second post immediately came up. A couple of hours later my original post that was sent somewhere to cyberspace came up. Now I am back to check to see if you had an answer and my 2 posts have disappeared? I had asked about whether Melatonin would interfere with the Secretagogue Gold and whether or not anyone has posted anything about having aching joints or muscles after taking Secretagogue Gold?

    • hgh truths says:

      We have had a pile of comments with questions lately. We try to answer all the questions but only have the time to do so many. Currently we are running about 23 comments behind.

      Some people get energized by increased dopamine levels and have a hard time taking Secretagogue gold. This is a small percentage but it might apply to you.

      I have never heard of more than a very small percentage of people complain about aching joints or muscles from taking any hgh supplement. This symptom is more common in that kind of percentage for people taking hgh injections.

      I never have any problem when I take melatonin with hgh products.

      The wired effect could quite possibly have something to do with the DHEA and Pregnenolone. You are taking fairly good size dosages of these. Combined with the Secretagogue it just might not mesh.

      One of those thongs top discuss with your doctor. Women have a tough ride when it comes to hormones. Men just get declining levels.

  365. Cheryl says:

    Thank you so much for your reply. I hope you didn’t think I was complaining–just trying to figure out where my posts went. I just wanted to tell you that I decided to try at least one full week of taking the Secretagogue at night before I tried taking it in the morning or quit taking it all together. Last night I slept like a baby. I didn’t have that wired feeling I had been having so maybe I am past that now. Also, maybe this is all in my head but I wasn’t thinking about or expecting any results from the Secretagogue for at least a month, but I felt incredible at the gym yesterday. I had so much more energy than I normally do. I am really hoping I feel the same when I go this morning. I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to research all of these products and pass the information on to all of us. Your website is amazing. I’ve learned a ton from it. Thank you again for all the time you sacrifice to help all of us out!

    • hgh truths says:

      Do to the massive amount of spam we receive, comments don’t go up immediately.

      Glad to hear that things are working out for you. Most people who have wired or active dreaming experiences do see it go away once they are used to the product. It is only a small percentage that have a dopamine sensitivity.

    Hi Guys,
    Well its been about six weeks since I posted and figured its time for an update on my progress with Secretgogue Gold. Have been working out 3 days a week and have made good solid gains in muscle, for the first 3 weeks I lost a pound a week and then the last 3 weeks I lost 10 pounds. Definitley getting muscle and getting lean. At age 56 I truly feel like I’m back in my thirties physically and mentally. This has also been done with good nutrition but wow I am not going to change anything.

    Thanks Tom

    As a side note my other supplements are a men’s 50 plus multi-vitamin, fish oil capsules, creatine and an After Max shake only after training.

      Thanks but that is the top part of the label that just has some of the minor vitamin information for those ingredients that have an RDA reporting requirement. What we don’t know are the exact amounts of the ingredients most important to stimulating hgh release.

  368. April says:

    This is a really amazing site providing real info free of charge. Please let me share my experience to show my appreciation.

    I’m 40 years old asian female, started taking Secretagogue gold almost 2.5 months ago. I started taking half packet on empty stomach before bed 5 days on 2 days off for 2 weeks and then switched to full packet. I did’t have any problem in sleeping; actually I started to have better sleep. But I had the muscle pain in the first 2 weeks of taking it. I felt pain in my left shoulder on the 3rd day, in my left calf on the 5 or 6th day and in my back on the 9 or 10th day. Each time the pain went away the next day so I didn’t stop the cycle and switched to full packet. Luckily I havent’t had any pain since then. I wonder if what Cheryl experienced was similar to mine.

    Also, here are some beauty related info for female readers who seem to be the minority here. In the first 2 weeks with half packt I felt only better sleep and more energy, but after I started taking full packet, my cheek became fuller and hair softer. Sadly, under eye wrinkles, lines around mouth and grey hairs are still there. I hope I’ll see more results in the months ahead.
    Good luck everyone!

    • hgh truths says:

      Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences with everyone.

      We have a number of female readers but it does seem to be heavily weighted toward males. Particularly young males looking to grow bigger or taller. Probably our fault for not reaching out to a larger community. Going to do something to cure that.

  369. Tony says:

    Thanks very much for the reply. I have ordered some from Can I ask how the mechanics of this stuff works? Does it release the normal GH reservoir I (and everyone) has in their brain, so no antibodies will be produced? Or is it a mild synthetic form that is being introduced into my system? Do I start with half sachet per night & monitor for four weeks to see if I have any reactions? Is it best to take mon – fri & give my system a rest over the weekend?

    Thanks Again


    • hgh truths says:

      The ingredients in Secretagogue Gold stimulate your body’s own natural release of hgh. You can start with half if you want but a whole one should be fine.
      Any combination of 5 days on and two days off works fine . it all depends on what suits your schedule best.

  370. Tony says:

    Thanks very much for the help & advice.


  371. John W says:


    Finally, an unbiased review website, I was beginning to think such a thing did not exist!

    I am 32 years old and I go to the gym 3 times per week, mainly lifting weights, with some cardio work. I am really disappointed to hear your “F” rated review of the Proderm HGH (extra strength) patches, but I can confirm your findings, in that they are utterly in-effective and anyone who trys them is basically throwing money away.
    Having said that, I haven’t given up on the idea of trying another HGH supplement, the secretagogue “1” or “gold” perhaps. I just have a few questions: Firstly, for someone of my age, would I see any real difference – I am starting to go grey and started going bald at around 18 :o( ? Secondly, if I take the recommended dosage or a dose perhaps 1.5x or 2x the recommended dose would I be likely to experience any of the negative side-effects that you mentioned that can occur when using HGH? Thirdly, does combining a hgh supplement with other training supplements (i.e. creatine, BCAAs, natural testosterone boosters/estrogen blockers) adversely impact the outcome?
    Any assistance you can give with this would be really helpful.
    Thanks, John.

    • hgh truths says:

      John W,

      John W,
      For a 32 year old we would expect only a small difference but this would vary from individual to individual. You will get you money’s worth of benefits but they just won’t be as noticeable as for somebody 15 years older. Stick with the single recommended dosage for a month and don’t worry about stronger right now because stronger is not always better.

      There should not really be any problem taking this with other training supplements. Just take them at different times of day.

  372. Mike D says:

    Thanks for a great website, with very useful information!

    Would you recommend this product for an active 25 yr old male looking to increase energy and strength levels? I play soccer 2-3 times per week, and workout (cardio + weightlifting) 1-2 times per week minimum, but am still unsatisfied with the energy level I reach and would like a supplement that can help with that.
    Looking for suggestions before I make a purchase.


    • hgh truths says:

      Mike D,

      Seriously, try some kind of superfood product like green magic. Something based on spirulina,cholorella, kamut, etc without a pile of extra unneeded herbs thrown in.

  373. Nicole says:

    This is a great site! I have been reading the posts here and I am glad to see more women posting here.

    I’m a 42 years old Asian woman. I started taking S. Gold about 20 days ago, hoping that it would help with my hormones imbalance, menstrual problems, and my low energy level.

    After taking it for two+ weeks (5 days, 1 day off, empty stomach before bed), I did not feel that my sleep has improved (maybe because I have a 19-month toddler who still wakes at least once at night), nor is there more energy. My period came early this month at only 20 days since my last cycle, which is about 4 days earlier than normal. No weight loss experienced.

    I have endometrosis and painful but light period. I had a fibroid when I was pregnant with my daughter in 2007, and had to take progesterone injections daily for about 2 months during my 2nd trimester. The fibroid shrank in size and my menstrual pain returned 6 months after giving birth. I also had borderline hypothyroidism in 2005-6.

    Will S. Gold help me with the problems I described above? How will S. Gold affect a woman’s menstrual cycle? I intend to finish the first box I got. Should I try another box or two to see if I will get better results?

    • hgh truths says:

      Sorry but your question is way too loaded with medical condition information for us to handle.

      The only part I can answer is that no woman has ever said that Secretagogue Gold or any other decent hgh supplement has ever interfered with the menstrual cycle. The only products that would probably do that are the bodybuilding supplements filled with supposed testosterone boosters.

  374. Mike D says:

    I did some research on Green Magic, and it sounds like exactly what I need. I might give it a try.
    Thanks for the input.


    • hgh truths says:

      Mike D,
      Green Magic is a great product. It is very rare that we say something good about a product that comes from a network marketing company but it really is the best product of its kind out there.

      The company is run by nice, honest people and has some good products.

      If you search the internet you can find a couple of big distributors that sell it direct at the distributor price.

  375. Scott M says:

    Well I just wanted to say great site I’m 5″11 and 36 yrs old and was having trouble loosing weight and was on a diet and started at 210 I got down to 189 and fell off the wagon so I decided to start back up this year and ordered p90x the diet was the same thing the doctor had that I was on before so for 30 days I did it and dropped to 175 and was feeling great then I got some bad food and was sick for a week and hurt my leg so I looked into the HGH and have been on it for 2 weeks now what a differnce I dropped to 165 and didn’t really follow the diet that good last week with all the easter candy so I would say it’s working becuase before if I would have eaten any sugar I would gain weight fast. I can also notice the tighten up in the abs and legs. The engery level is also up a little bit. I can’t wait to start working out again and see how the next 60 days goes. Also I’m in 31 in pants now I haven’t worn this size sine 11th grade good luck with it.

  376. costa says:

    thx for exposing the bad sites,i nearly got taken,so u saved me hundreds of australian dollars…i would like to know how i can get the Secretagogue Gold as i am in australia…thx again

    • hgh truths says:

      I don’t know if Secretagogue Gold is available in Australia. Your government used to have some funny rules about what supplements could be imported.

      We did review one product that is available in Australia… SecretaGain. A passably decent product. We would review more but most of the Australian marketers don’t seem to like revealing the ingredients.

  377. Christopher says:

    Thanks for what appears to be an unbiased website (the skeptic in me says this entire thing could still be a ruse put together by one individual promoting SG, but the sucker in me jumped right in and bought a 4 mo supply).

    I am a 45 yo male, 185lbs, in good shape with graying and now receeding hair. I have seen no effects (good or bad) from taking SG for close to a month now and have a couple of quick questions about the product.
    1. Is there any reason that the powder cannot be added to hot water? I found that it dissolves much easier in hot as appose to cold water, and tastes much like hot Tang (the skeptic says “duh”).
    2. If for some reason I miss a night of taking it, am I better just skipping that day and saving the $1, or should I take it in the a.m. and resume the p.m. schedule that night?

    Note to Scott M. a couple of posts above: Congrats on SG working miracles for you, but one must wonder if your totally overhauling your lifestyle (new diet and P90X) might not also be a contributing factor in “it’s” success.

  378. Mike P. says:

    I am 6″5 250 pounds 37 yrs old do you recommend possibly taking 1 1/2 to 2 packs for someone my size or just sticking with the single pack of Secretagogue Gold ? Also can my wife take it in her 2nd year of breast feeding ? Thank you for your time.

    • hgh truths says:

      Mike P.,
      Start with just one. That is often plenty. Maybe try more a month or two down the road. However, more does not always mean better.

      Your wife should really wait until after she is done breast feeding.

  379. Candi says:

    Hi I am almost finished with my first cycle of the S.G. feeling great, everyday I wake with a little change here or there that I notice, just a small change but enough to notice, for example today I noticed my hands looked younger..I sleep like a rock and my hormones seem balanced, its a wonderful thing I did try a few weeks on the S.One just out of curiosity and did not like it as well I felt very tired through the day.

    So my question to you this time is what is your next suggestion for me take a month off and then when do you suggest I restart and with what product and maybe take twice a day both morn/even? I also have my parents now taking the S.G. It took them a little longer to notice changes then myself but they are older so I figured it would. Do you suggest they take a month off also?

    And one last question I know this is not a HGH product but what are your thoughts on the Mona Vie? I am sure you have heard of all the fuss and was just curious of your thoughts?

    Thanks again for your knowledge let me know where to let the tip. :)

    • hgh truths says:

      Here is a quote from the hgh cycling post:
      One school of thought is that you do not need to take the whole fourth month off. You only stop taking it until you can clearly notice the effect of not taking the hgh releaser. Plus you add on two additional days but the minimum time off should be seven days.

      Start back up with the SG. If it still seems to work, keep using it. You don’t need to switch or increase the dosage until it seems not to be working anymore.

      Everybody should cycle. it actually helps with the long term results and increases personal awareness.

      There have been so many of these latest juice things over the last decade or so. It is hard to get impressed. At the price,k I’ll stick to a good Bordeaux.

  380. jos says:

    im glad i found ur website its helping me a lot!!! im starting today with the program hope to see good results in a month or 2 , but my main question is, can a pregnant woman take secretagogue gold?
    and are there any risks?


    • hgh truths says:

      Hgh supplements should not be taken by pregnant or lactating women. Many of the products are not advisable for women who are thinking of getting pregnant.

  383. Tony says:


    I’ve got a couple of boxes of secretagogold on their way, so I’m going to clean up my diet (no alchohol at the weekend) & add an extra gym day. I’m going to try a eight week on, five week off course. I’m basing that on how I was told to take some gear back in the early 1990’s. Is that a good idea? Someone told me taking this stuff affects sperm count. I can’t find any evidence of this. As this will make me produce (release) my own GH, I don’t see how this is feasible.

    Thanks again

    Just wondering if the effects of using OTC Prilosec for heart burn would reduce the natural effects of Secretogue gold as far as leveling out the PH level in your stomach. I take Prilosec everyday, due to frequebt heartburn. Will the combiantion throw things off kilter?

    • hgh truths says:

      Eddie B,
      This is an interesting question. I have never heard anyone discuss having an issue with this. I occasionally take Pepcid for too much pizza syndrome and have never noticed a diiference.

  388. Chris says:

    Would this product be useful for a 13-14 yr old boy or is this type of supplement too advanced for him. Thanks.

    • hgh truths says:

      It is not that it is too advanced. it is simply a waste of money because he is in the prime zone for natural raging hormone release. Nothing short of major pharmaceuticals will make any difference. Stick to protein shakes and superfoods.

  389. Mike P. says:

    Hey resending this question cause it was never answered. Thank you for your quick responses much appreciated. Wanted to know about any info you have on if my father who has diabetes would be ok to take Secretagogue Gold or any recommendations or any experiences shared by others. Thanks for being such a great resource.

    • hgh truths says:

      Mike P.,
      I was probably just pausing to think about how to best answer a medical condition question. The basic answer is talk to his doctor.

      The more expansive “for informational purposes only” answer is proceed carefully. This is paticularly true if he has a very high level of condition.

      Hgh supplements can sometimes shift blood sugar levels. This is true of products like Secretagogue Gold that contain glycoamino acid complexes. Secretagogue Gold also contains ingredients designed to counter act this and help regulate blood sugar. Not all products do, so you might want to start with a product that contains no sugars of any kind.

      No matter what you choose, you want to start him off in the morning when it is easier to monitor blood sugar levels. Testing isn’t a bad idea but most diabetics I know are pretty good at tuning into their blood sugar levels.

      Start with a minimal dosage and work your way slowly to a full dosage.

      Many diabetics have reported that after a period of time on hgh supplements they have found it necessary to decrease the dosage of prescription medication.

      Basic advice is still to proceed slowly and pay attention.

  390. CM says:

    I just sent the following email to MHP: I have some concerns about this ingredient. Thoughts?


    Dear MHP,

    I just purchased Secretagogue Gold and have noticed that your product contains Acesulfame Potassium. There are potential safety concerns about this ingredient. What are your thoughts on this?

    Thank you for your reply as time permits,

  392. K B says:

    I have been doubling up on secretagogue gold and like the results. I was wondering about two things….. Pairing Gold with secretagogue One? And taking T-Bomb II with Gold.

    • hgh truths says:

      It is really all about whatever works for you. I am a firm believer in experimenting to see what works best for myself. Just take care to not over stimulate. The best dosages are those that are approximately right at the point where you feel something.

  393. Mike says:

    I’ve become completely overwhelmed by all of the information available.

    I’m a 23 year old male, and have just started working out at a gym.

    I’m looking for a product or products that will help me build muscle mass, and also increase sexual potency (drive, quality of erection, and lasting power).

    However I have no clue where to begin. Due to my age, I’m guessing HGH won’t be of any help whatsoever.

    I’m not trying to look like a body builder, just take a shortcut I guess, and get results faster and easier.

    What I don’t want are massive side effects, like a decrease in sex drive, grow man-breasts, or impotency, let alone mood issues, or any other long term heath risks.

    What are some products/compounds I should be considering?

    I’ve heard of DHEA, and am looking at steroid compounds, but again, sexual potency is of the utmost concern.

    Where should I begin?

    • hgh truths says:


      The place to begin is not to worry about it until you are older. None of the supplements will do much for a 23 year old.

  394. Mike says:

    So other than HGH supplements, what should I be looking at?

    Right now I use a protein blend called EAS, and it has a number of amino chains.

    I also taking creatine, the suggested is a loading dose of 20 grams, but I’ve been doing more like 10 grams per day.

    I mean, I saw above Green Magic was suggested.

    Obviously steroids probably aren’t a good idea for me, right?

    I’m 170lbs right now, and really want to improve my BMI, cut the fat, and look good.

    Just general energy level, decreased recovery time, increased results from working out, what if anything is worth considering?

    I’m not beyond accepting that at 23 there really isn’t anything that can help.

    I really just want to maximize my results over a minimal amount of time.

    Also while I’m 5′ 6″, and would love to grow a little taller, there isn’t a product out there that’s likely to help at all with that at my age, is there?

    I mean, I’m talking about any supplements, not just HGH.

    I love the idea of increased energy, mental sharpness, increased muscle mass, decreased recovery time, and increased sexual potency, but I really don’t think I’m going to see those results from HGH or testosterone, right? (not at my age at least)

    So what if any supplements can help me in those areas at my age, even if it’s just a supplement like Green Magic, or DHEA?

    Basically, what’s a good “stack” for me to be looking at? Even if it’s just a stack of vitamins, and other non-steroid/HGH supplements?

    Is there a safe/light steroid/androgen that I could take? (DHEA would fall under this as well, right?)

    Again the main things I’d like to see from a regiment/stack:

    Increased muscle mass,
    Decreased recovery time
    Increased energy
    Higher quality sleep
    Increased sexual potency (don’t know if this is really even an issue at my age, I don’t have problem lasting, or achieving an erection, but I can always perform better, and would love to)

    Most of all just general increased health, like living longer.

    I know we tend to focus more on HGH here, but what should be a part of my plan at 23? I know there’s more I could be doing.

    • hgh truths says:

      Protein, Green magic, and maybe a good multiple vitamin.

      Nothing is going to make you grow taller and if your worried about sexual potency, try taking a tantra course.

  395. makubex says:

    I don’t dare to try this product before there’s any positive testimonials on their site, they have none now, the testimonials column on official site of secretagogue gold still being updated/constructed…. I guess they still in stage of collecting good testi…..if they have…. what do you think admin?? and what the official web address of secretagogue one??? thanks

    • hgh truths says:


      You actually think that the testimonials on supplement websites are real? Did you know that if you lose a tooth you can put it under your pillow and during the night a nice fairy will leave you a shiny dime.

      Every month brand new products show up on the web with glowing testimonials. If it is a brand new product, how have people been taking it for years?

      It is all by the magic of the Testimonial fairy.

  396. secrenewbie says:

    i had the same intense headache as anne did the night after taking my first packet. the first night was fine but at around 6pm the next night i felt a throbbing pain in the left side of my head. the pain didnt go away until after i slept for the night and the dizziness lingered for about until 6pm the following night. im yet to try taking it in the morning

    but the weird part was other than the headache the rest of my body felt good and relaxed even. and i also had the most vivid dream i had in decades. so i havent given up on this product yet. i think the headache is due to the increased heart activity

    ill try anne’s approach tomorrow i guess, i dont feel the headache now

    o would it help if i try only half a packet a day?

  397. Kevin says:

    Would taking secretagogues as a 17 year have any effect on my workout goals? See different results from my research. Just want to clearify!!! Thanks!!!

    • hgh truths says:

      It would be a waste of money at your age. Stick to protein supplements and super foods like Green Magic.

  398. Tom says:

    Just finished my second box of sectetagogue gold and loving the results. Energy -Increasing lean body mass-mental clarity.
    A question though in a couple of posts you guys have said probably not enough aminos for the body building crowd. I have some maxi hhg that I had planned to stack with the gold, and on your advice did not. What in your opinion makes a high amino complex different than some of the other products out there?

    • hgh truths says:

      Glad you are having good results.

      The reason we would say not to stack maxi hgh with the gold is that often stronger is not better. You are taking the Secretagogue Gold and getting results. Those results will continue to build over time. If there is a time down the road when the results don’t seem to be happening, that is when you might do a stack. Going for a stronger release at the beginning can often cause your body to fight back against the increase in hgh and slow down the results rather than quicken them.

      I believe you are talking about the HGH Surge review. The name Surge is a little off. It will increase hgh and has many good anti aging ingredients but it won’t be that big push for results that body builders are looking for. Hgh Surge will have good results for the people looking for steady longer term anti aging benefits. If it took you 50 years to age what is 6 months to turn back the clock? Body builders want more results now. Even though HGH is not the great muscle builder that sports nutrition companies try to make it out to be.

    so how do canadians get any of these products?
    should we purchase the ingredients individually or is there a place to get these products?


    • hgh truths says:

      I don’t know the current state of Canadian laws. They used to frown on any products that combined herbs with amino acids. Call Swanson Vitamins and see if they ship to Canada.

    Hi. I am 33 and going to order this product thanks to you in the next couple days. I’m on a pretty stricked diet. I’m comsuming 4000-5000 cals and as much protien as posible and a pretty stricked workout plan. I’m trying to gain weight and mass. Will HGH and this product help me? Plus I have to eat right before bed so should I take it in the morning before I eat then. Thanks and great info!

  401. Thomas says:

    I just had one other question sorry. I’ve read that injectables and “oral” HGH is the way to go. A pill wont work cause the stomach acid will destore the HGH before it gets to the blood stream! Is there any truth to this?

      At 33 years of age, an hgh supplement can help some. Yes, take it in the morning.

      There is no such thing as oral hgh. Complete marketing BS. HGH Secratagogues don’t contain any “hgh”. they are made from vitamins and herbs that stimulate the bodies own natural release of growth hormone.

  402. Jon says:

    I am a 38 year male, and have been taking secretagogue gold for about a week and have been taking it at night before bed on empty stomach. Seems to be working my energy levels are alot higher and generally feel better, however my sleep at night has too many really active dreams. I am waking up alot since taking it, should I try to use it in the morrning after waking up? Is there any problems taking it in the morning instead will it affect its potency or whatnot?

    Also is it really necessary to take a couple of days off after 5 days or whatnot for some kind of cycling? What is the benefit of that?

    Thanks for any help

    Why no more responses since May? This is/was an incredible site dedicated to providing its guests with facts and not sales pitches.

    • hgh truths says:

      What was supposed to be a “We” project became mostly an “I” project and I have been taking a sabbatical. With nobody to answer comments, comments were closed. However, the 2000+ comments on the site probably answered over 90% of the questions people could have. Spam was representing 90% of the comments received, 9% were people asking questions that were already answered on the site and maybe 1% were something new.

      Most of the major products on the market have been reviewed and there are a few more reviews that are going to be staged to post. Plus there will be a number of posts on various ingredients and how to boost some of the better products or combine some of them together.

      Comments, however, will be turned off again soon.

  404. pat says:

    hello… would there be any benefit to doubling the dose of secretagogue Gold? 2 packets before bed …. would a cup of coffee with cream & sugar in the am before taking life renewal harm the desired affect? thanks for your time you’ve been very helpful

    • hgh truths says:

      Doubling the dosage makes no sense unless you have already done a full course of the product. Many times, taking more can reduce your results.

      In the morning you eat or drink nothing until 30 minutes after taking an hgh product. Even if the coffee was black.

  405. Pat says:

    I have already done a full course…

    my interest is in loosing fat & building muscle I am a 43 year old male

  406. Shane says:

    Is there anything in Secretagogue Gold that would be considered banned by WADA? IGF-1 is banned, but it appears the ingredient list says it has IGF-1 Co-Factors–does that mean “IGF-1 Co-Factors” are different than IGF-1?

    • hgh truths says:

      “IGF-1 Co-0 Factors” is a fancy term for marketing by means of the label. I don’t see anything on the label that conflicts with the WADA drug list. However, I am not an expert on the subject. The only thing I had a concern about was the l-dopa but that is not on the WADA list and while it can enhance mood, it is not a direct performance enhancer.

  407. Logan says:

    I am so glad that I stumbled across this site! I am 22 years old, am looking to loose about 50 lbs, and just recently starting working out (crossfit) on a regular basis, and changed my diet. I looked on the website for Secretagogue and they recommend it for people 35 or older. I am not looking for something that is going to change me overnight, but just for something to aid me in my venture to get back into shape, and live a healthier life style. My question is, would this stuff be safe/useful at a young age, and if not what do you recommend?


  408. Dewayne says:

    I have been taking secretagogue gold for about three weeks and getting good results. Would it hurt to take a little extra gaba just to help further enhance my mood. I don’t want to do anything that would interfere with my results. I plan on cycling the gaba as well. Thoughts? I take the gold before bed and was thinking about taking some gaba in the morning or at some point during the day.

  409. Gregg says:

    Thank you for this great website. I am a 52 year old male and because of your reviews, just purchased my first package of secretagogue gold. Due to coaching committments, I am not able to eat dinner each evening until around 8:30 PM. This doesn’t allow me time to take the product prior to going to bed (since it is best to take on an empty stomach). Instead I am taking it at 10 AM, about 3 hours after breakfast and a couple of hours before lunch. Will this have any major impact on the effectivness of the secretagogue gold? Based on my meal schedule, would you have any suggestion for a better time to take it?

    • hgh truths says:

      If that is the best you can do it is OK. Not as effective but you should still get reasonable benefits. If you could sneak it in first thing in the morning it would be better. Only need about a half hour before eating.

  410. Nick says:

    Just ordered Secretogue Gold. Thanks for all the info.
    My wife and I take 3mg. melotonin and a couple caps of calcium at bedtime. Are these OK to take with S.G.? We are each 51 yrs. old. We also often take a Tylenol PM to help us sleep.
    I took a HGH spray, Aeon 5000 for about a year and thought I was getting great results. I was just starting a workout regimen, so maybe that was it, but I am working out now without taking any product and am having a more difficult time losing about 15 lbs. that I gained. It’s interesting that this spray product got an “F” grade. Have you tried them or simply dismiss them because they “don’t make sense”?

    • hgh truths says:

      Basic vitamins and such will not mess things up. The melatonin will work better if you cycle it.

      I tried Aeon or one of its predecessors a number of years back. It is based on junk science. The makers and marketers of this product were subject of federal felony indictments earlier this year. The indictments related specifically to the Aeon product.

  411. Sean says:

    Hello HGHTruths,

    I’ll start with what looks like to be the traditional thanks from all your posters.

    My did I have to keep clicking past pages and pages of obviously endorsed websites full of BS to get to the real deal but now i’ve found it.

    I had this morning placed an order for six months of the systropin HGH spray. After reading your review I quickly cancelled. Lets see how good they are on the 90 money back promise.

    So now i’m right back to square one and must admit still pretty confused.

    I’m 26, 6ft3 and 15 stone and i’ve put on a bit of weight over the past few years(due to lack of exercise and bad food).

    I’m getting back into training and eating well again and I am looking for an alternative to anabolic steroids that will help me both strip weight, build muscle and improve fitness.

    Would you be able to recommend a product that would suit myself? (since technically it is your fault that i’m back to the drawing board!!;-))

    ps. keep up the good work!!

    • hgh truths says:

      At 26, hgh supplements don’t really have a big impact. Just doing the training and having a better diet should be enough.

  412. Mike says:

    can i stack the secretagogue gold and secretagogue one? if so how would you reccommend i do this and would it produce solid muscle mass by releasing hgh and causing musle build or will i notice muscle just beacause of it causing weight loss?

    • hgh truths says:

      Before you go stacking things together, try each one seperately first. More is not always better. Then if you want, you can stack them together. HGH is over rated as both a weight loss supplement and as a muscle builder. It can assist people who are employing a good training program toward both of those goals.

  413. Walt says:

    I am 65 and have been using secretagogue gold for several months. I tried the five days on two off but it didn’t seem to work well for me. I now take it every other day. Seems to work better. Is this counter productive?

    • hgh truths says:

      I always say that after you try ti the basic way, go with what feels bes for you. It is heavily about being in touch with your own body.

  414. Walt says:

    Should I try working back to five days on again?

  415. Edd says:

    If the reason for taking this supplement is to achieve the levels of HGH of an 18 year old then why cycle. I assume that an 18 year old’s body produces high HGH levels continuously without dramatic declines every three months for a whole month. I still plan to cycle but I would really like to know the science behind it because it doesn’t really seem to make sense to me.

    Thanks for all the time you have put into this to help us all out. It’s a very nice change from all the disinformation floating around out there.

  416. Casady says:

    I’m 57 and I’m currently taking injectable HGH under a doctors supervision, because my body isn’t producing any. It works as advertised but is very expensive. I intent to ask my doctor whether I might be able to transition to Gold after a time, but I’m interested to hear what you might know about the possibility.

    • hgh truths says:

      I know a number of doctors who use a protocol that combines low dosages of injectable hgh with hgh supplements. They claim it is less expensive and work just as well or better than large dose injections.

  417. Edd says:

    I dont think you understood my question. I was asking the reason for cycling. I’m not 18 or 19. I said that an 18 year olds body does not “cycle” the way it produces hgh so why should anybody else.

  418. sean says:

    is this product safe to take with an anti depressent?

  419. Mewdeedi says:


    i am female turning 40 soon. I have weight problem and also looking to stay young. I am gg to order 2 boxes of Secretagogue Gold to start with. My questions are should i continuously use this prdt or shld i alternate with another? Also will it be good for me to also supplement with Alpha Lipoic Acid? If yes, how much should i go for?

    Thanx a lot:)

    • hgh truths says:

      It is fine to just take the Gold through two boxes or even longer. Secrtagogue Gold already contains alpha lipoic acid.

  420. Kevin says:

    Great site! I am pushing 30 and use to be very active and a hard core athlete in great shape. However, through the sports and my time in the military, I have sustained injuries and I have lost alot of my former physique. I am able to workout but obviously not like I use to. I have been researching all kinds of supplements that will help me get back the look I use to have without the hardcore lifting. Any suggestions?
    Thank you in advance!

    • hgh truths says:

      Supplements don’t really do that. Try more injury friendly forms of exercise. Yoga, pilates, tai chi, etc. These can set you on the right path. Maybe combined with body weight workouts or low weights done with very slow reps.

      I was mangled at that age and discovered Rolfing. The deep tissue body work did wonders.

  421. Ben says:

    It’s stated on their official website that anyone over the age of 35 is the age for who should take it. Is it okay for adolescents to take it also from the age of 16+? Can this supplement be purchased at local drug stores or do you have to order online? ..and does it require prescription to purchase this supplement?

  422. Tom says:

    Hi Guys,
    I see that you will be signing off on the comment section, sorry to hear that but it makes sense most if not all of the new questions have been asked and answered. I just want to thank you again in helping with my selection of Secretagogue Gold. It has been 5 months since my last post and my results just keep coming. It was tough cycling off for a week, I felt like crap. My results have been fantastic I have taken off 50 pounds and really starting to get ripped. At age 56 I fell better now then when I was in my 40s. The secret formula Secretagogue Gold-Good Nutrition-Resistance Training.

    • hgh truths says:

      Thanks for the update. Comment replies aren’t gone but they are touch and go. We simply don’t have the time to reanswer questions so they have been getting deleted. We barely have the time to be running a week or two behind in answering the new posts.

  423. RichMc says:

    I am a 50yr old male and have been using supplements and lifting and running since I was 23. I’m well past past the need to “bulk up” and am focused on achieving better sleep, health, endurance, and tone. I am exited about finding this site as it seems to much more scientifically oriented and less about the hype. Before I found this site I started using Somatomax several weeks ago. It has helped with sleep, a feeling of well being, and certainly with energy level. I was surprised to not see it hear and am very interested in how Secretagogue Gold would compare. Thank you in advance for your comments.

    • hgh truths says:


      The Somatomax review is not here because it is not really an hgh releaser and while it does have some benefits, it’s main ingredient is essentially an unapproved addictive drug.

  424. Jeff says:

    Just started taking secretagogue gold the other day. From what I understand, I should take 5 days on and 2 days off, is that correct? Also, I tend to workout in the mornings or afternoon, but never before I go to sleep. Would I benefit more by taking it at another time of day like in the AM or afternoon just before or after a good workout?

  425. Eric says:

    I am 50 yrs young and weight 240, height 6′0.
    I woudl like to lose 40lbs and reduce body fat to 15%. I just order Secrtagogue Gold and GHR . With GHR Do I take the dosage for my desired weight or current weight. Can I take both at once? Or when should I cycle off Secrtagogue Gold and on with GHR? Please Advise
    Thanks Great Site

    • hgh truths says:


      No need to take both products at the same time. Stick to just one. If you want to cycle between products do it every three to four months.

  426. Jeff says:

    I think I know the answer, but didn’t see it specifically. On workout days, I eat at 6PM, and then workout 730-830. I usually have a whey protein shake. Does that disqualify me from taking until 11? If so, no biggie- I can take in the AM. What if I take at night sometimes and in the AM on other days?

  427. Garrard says:

    I used to take testosterone sublingual supplements and injectible HGH from a well-known hormone replacement doctor in L.A. Then, I worked in Europe for three years, and went off both HGH and testosterone during that time. Now I’m back in L.A. (and glad to be here.)

    I do wonder if Secretagogue Gold is as effective as HGH injectibles over the longer term. Plus, I wonder if you know of any supplements that can approximate the effects of doctor-prescribed sublingual testosterone replacements. Both these products had dramatic effects on my health, energy, and weight when I was taking them here in the U.S. I am now 63 years old.

    Many thanks!

    • hgh truths says:

      Lots of people take just the Gold and are happy with the long term results. However, the happiest people seem to be those that do low dose injections combined with supplements.

      Many of the tribulus based herbal products are supposed to help with testosterone. I say “supposed” because there needs to be more intensive research but tribulus does appear to work on that end of the hormone cascade. Dhea and pregnenolone can also be cost effective boosters. Start with low doses.

  428. Wendy says:

    Hi, I’m 46 years old and considering ordering Secretagogue Gold or GHR Essentialsnd for me and my honey, 41. We both have very low energy levels after a days work in construction and lack the motivation to exercise. After reading a good deal of posts, I understaqnd we need to incorporate an exercise program and have considered p90x program. My question is: If we take Secretagogue Gold or GHR Essentials without immediately incorporating a workout regime, will the product still help with fat loss and energy levels? Also, I have suffered with carpal tunnel and other tendon issues and nerve damage in my elbows, shoulders, neck and now seems my outer hips. Seems you are a fitness guru, and your opinion would be greatly appreciated. I refuse to go to the docs again for them to charge tons of money and give no lasting teatments. I suffer with pain everyday but I refuse to be a pain pill popper. It’s all caused form repetitive motion. Do you (not as a medical advisor, but in your experiences) feel this product and a good excercise program help with this? Also, what do you feel about the p90x program, Hype? Thanks in advance for your help. I actuually stumbled across you site searching for skin care products for premature aging skin and hope that one of the products will help with that along with some good vitamin supplements ex. a, d,e, and c for internal and topical treatments.I already take a multi-vit and b- complex. FYI has S-Gold for @ $46. And GHR Essentials for @ 15.50 / 120 caps.
    Any other suggestions would be great too.
    Oh I’m also going to research “Rolfing?”
    Thanks Wendy

    • hgh truths says:

      The products always work better with a decent exercise program. Considering you physical concerns, I would suggest starting with yoga, pilates or tai chi.

      A good superfood supplement like Green Magic would also be a good choice.

  429. Wendy says:

    opps, GHR Essentials at Swanson Health Products site for @15.50/120 caps. and Secretagogue Gold at for @$46/30ct .=)

  430. Dewayne says:

    I have Been taking the secretaggue gold and getting good results. I have been researching 7 keto DHEA and thinking about adding that to my supplements. Whats you’re take on this supplement? I know that I would never take regular DHEA because of the side effects. But research has been done on 7 keto DHEA by dr. Hardy at the university of Wisconsin and shown that it doesn’t mess with a persons hormones. Do you have any knowledge on the subject because all of the things that I have read says that it is safe. Unfortunately there are no long term studies on this supplement. There have only been short term experiments with human subjects.

    • hgh truths says:

      We are actually talking about messing with your hormones here. I also don’t believe that 7 keto dhea does not at some point stimulate the same pathways as dhea. Both are good products in low dosages. In fact I think it is time to add a little bit into my cycle again.

  431. Dewayne says:

    What would you consider a good dosage of 7 keto DHEA? As of now I’m taking 100mg per day. I know some manufacturers of the supplement reccomend 200mg per day but I always try to get results with the lowest possible dosage. I have only taken it for two days so right now I’m not sure what to expect.

  432. Daniel A says:

    hey I’m 24, going up in strength .. has trained in 5 years .. but the last 2 years I have endured with much pain in my shoulder .. have everyday sore
    on .. even when I sleep .. and my doctor said I will train the pain away but it seems that the pain will not disappear .. or I opreres the pain .. but
    heard that hgh will go in and help .. it is
    a go idea to start it quietly. Now when I want to train again ..
    i been very lazy after the injury .. I was very active in the training .. hope you would afford me, and many thanks for the good site

  433. Sharon says:

    Thanks for your website, Its is refreshingly honest. I am a 53 year old female in ok shape. I am on no medications, but I have low energy and I don’t always make good eating choies. I am trying to make some changes . I tried one of your “D” rated HGH products and was shocked when I began menstrating again. Is that normal?
    I want to try Secretagogue gold, but I enjoy not haing a period. Also I have a teen daughtern who is experiencing some ADD sytptoms. Could you suggest a good supplement for her?



    • hgh truths says:

      That is a new one. I would not expect you to have the same problem with Secretagogue Gold.

      I can’t legally answer the ADD question. Sorry.

  434. Mike B. says:

    I am 45 years old and a lifetime athlete. I am running and lifting weights, tennis, basketball, etc. a few times a week and beginning training for a half marathon. I am reluctant to try anything that could have a negative affect. I have irregualy used protein, L – Glutamine powders, joint health products etc. with limited results. I have tried Creatine years ago, when I was more into body building. I have NEVER taken steroids or HGH of any kind. I am looking to feel/look better and lose about 10 -15 pounds and decrease body fat. I am NOT wealthy so would this be the product you would recommend for me?

  435. Daniel A says:

    I will most use hgh to remove my injury .. to have heard that it had helped one with a shoulder injury .. and if it helps you as an advice what I can do to get the pain away .. so I can train a bit more without pain .. my injury states (rotator cuff) ..

  436. Mark S says:

    Im 20 years old and have been weight training for the last three years….Im trying to set up a proper supplement routine….I have arginine,BCAA’S, TRIBULUS 625, ZMA’S,Whey Protein,Glutamine,and BSN CellMass… Im trying to gain weight and muscle size as well..and I heard about the green magic superfood and wonder if that would work for me…. If you could can you set up a supplement routine from when I wake up until I go to bed using those products including Green Magic and before and after workouts.. I tend to workout at 8am everyday as well…Because I seem to can’t find the best supplement routine that benefits meet to gain mass…. 5″10 182ILBS

    • hgh truths says:

      Mark S,
      A good protein supplement and the weight training is all you really need. You are wasting your money on the rest of the stuff.

      Maybe throw some yoga into your routine. The extra stretching can actually help with muscle gain. At least that is what some of my Muscle Beach friends swear by.

  437. Roxanne says:

    I am 56 and athletic; I am an avid bike rider and do strength training twice/week. I cannot afford injectable HGH, though I wish I could – I would do it mainly for the added energy and mental boost. I have seen what it can do in my own boyfriend. I currently take 2800 mg (Douglas Labs) L-Arginine each night, based on the thought that this should boost my body’s production of HGH. However, I cannot say I notice much improvement and I’ve been doing this for one year. Do you think the Secretagogue Gold would be a better choice than the known quantity (of L-Arg) that take now? Thanks.

  438. Bob says:

    Also, I wanted to ask if you would recommend mixing Dr. Giampapa’s 2 creations together. I was considering accomplishing this by dumping a packet of “S. Gold” and a packet of “S. One” into a glass container, shaking it, then using half of the powder mixture each night with 6oz. of water. I was also considering adding in a quarter serving of Maxi-HGH to raise the amino acid content a bit. Am I a mad scientist??? :)

    I seek the elusive “A” rated product for myself, which would not necessarily be perfect for someone else, as you have alluded to in other posts.

    I just want to give myself the best chance possible of raising my HGH levels.
    I also have purchased some HGH Surge so let me know if I should add some of this in too…

    • hgh truths says:

      You would probably be reducing the benefit by that combining method.

      The mix in Maxi-hgh would require something closer to a half dosage to compliment the Secretagogue Gold. I would not recommend adding the additional amino acids until doing a second cycle. Most people will get all the benefit they need from the regular dosage. Oftwen times adding more can cause a decrease in results.

  439. Bob says:

    Oops, free shipping can be had from by using the code “FS50″
    which is short for free shipping when you spend $50.00.
    Thanks for this HGH Truths site and all of your motivation to keep it going.

  440. Mike says:


    First of all thank you for such a wonderful site it really give alot of ingo on GH.

    I do have a question about this product,
    actually I workout and secretagouge gold should be taken at night on empty stomach.But I take take it 2 hours before night meal and then go to bed.Is this routine ok

  441. Chris says:

    I was wondering if nicotine effects the secretagogue? I usually chew a piece of nicotine gum (4mg) when I read at night and then take the Gold right before I go to sleep.

  442. Bob says:

    I will take your advice and not add in the Maxi-hgh until my second cycle. I seem to be sleeping better when I take the Gold with 1 tablet of HGH Surge. Does this seem like a potentially decent combination – and would Secretagogue One and HGH Surge be a good combo too for a later cycle?

    The HGH Surge really seems pretty potent and messes with my brain if I take more than 2 at a time and also seems to have a carry over/accumulative effect, to the point where I have to cut back on it drastically and take only one half of a tablet some days.
    Thanks again for your motivation in keeping up with all of these questions – you “must” sleep pretty well yourself to have so much energy!

    • hgh truths says:

      We operate on the “whatever works for you”. We just want people to know the effects of each product before they start combining.

      Surge has an energizing effect on me so I take it in the morning. Some people have the opposite experience. Another reason to experiment.

      Due to children and pets, I operate on 6 hours of sleep.

  443. mike b says:

    How long should one expect to see/feel results from using this product 5 days on 2 days off?

  444. mike b says:

    next question… how long until one sees/feels results after use of this product has begun?

  445. Anthony says:

    I am a 36y/o male 5’9 200lbs quite muscular and in good shape. I do martial arts, kettelbells & traditional gym workouts. I have tried many products in my day, and I must say after on 1 week of usage I am noticing results. I have never had any problems sleeping but now when I wake up I am fully refreshed, after my workouts I have more energy and I am noticing some reductions in belly fat. I have been using a 1day on 1 day off for the Gold. Great website!! If it had not been for the reviews on this site I would have never bought this product..Thank you!! Fitness for life!!

  446. Devon Plumley says:

    Hey, I was wondering what the latest general consensus is on Arginine, I thought it, and or combined with ornithine was the standard base ingredient to any HGH releasing program. And I didn’t actually see any in the gold product that got the b+. However, I did notice OKG, and ironically I just– in scrolling up to find this interesting form of Ornithine, happen to see that you (admin) have practically already answered my question on arginine; someone else asked about its lack of appearance in this formula we are discussing. I guess I’ll still leave my question in case you feel like elaborating one more time on Arginine vs other alternatives for primary GH releaser ingredients. Thanks for your consideration!

    • hgh truths says:

      Arginine and ornithine are really old school ingredients for hgh release that require rather large doses. My business life slows down over the next few weeks so I will try to post a whole bunch of articles that have already been written on the various ingredients.

  447. joe m. says:

    I’m 49 years old and started working out with mostly wieght training about 4 years ago (wish i had starter sooner). About six months ago I started using whey protein powder drink and feel better recovery time after workouts. About six weeks ago I added secretagogue gold to my routine but feel little if any difference. Do you think the whey powder could be affecting the secretagogue gold benifits? I was thinking to switching from whey powder to a creatine power because I like to see some better results at the gym. Thanks for all the info on this site.

    • hgh truths says:

      joe m.,
      As long as the whey powder is taken at a different time of day, there should be no interference. Same goes for the creatine.

  448. Twineseekingmissile44 says:

    I was interested in a product of this sort, I am 20 years old and a hockey player. I have gotten the injury bug, and had it for the last 4 years lol, and I was hoping for something that might allow me to naturally increase my recovery times as well as increase general fitness and wellness. I know there are other products of different varieties other than HGH enhancers out there, but is an HGH enhancing supplement a viable option for me?

  449. bill says:

    has anyone took secretagoue gold over months time and got good results, does this increase test levels for limbido and good orgasms. also does this promote lean musle mass

  450. Robin says:

    just ordered my first box today. I’m 42 year old female with so many issues I cannot even begin to describe the torment of it all.

    All I know is that I need a miracle and the doctors do not help at all.

    I will keep you updated and according to the results will let you know what medical conditions i’m overcoming and if this works I will shout to the roof tops about this product.

  451. Anthony says:

    Hello and Thanks for your support!!!
    Can I take ZMA and S. Gold at the same time before bed? Also, can you combine a fatburner and S. Gold or should I wait until after im done with the cycle?

    Thanks Again!

    • hgh truths says:

      ZMA shouldn’t interfere with with the Gold. You can also do fatburners too if that is your thing. I do always recommend that you try things by themselves for awhile so that you understand what is going on with your body.

  452. Anthony says:

    Also, would you recommend MHP’s Thyro-Slim am/pm for weight loss? Many thanks!

    • hgh truths says:

      Not generally a fan of fatburners. If I was to take one, I would probably go for a weak traditional ECA stack and heavily cycle.

  453. Jeff says:

    Quick question – what’s your thought on combining Secretagogue Gold with a N.O. supplement? What are your thoughts on N.O., for example, something like Ripped Strength?

    Thanks for this great site….

    • hgh truths says:

      NO supplements are just basically 5 to 10 gram dosages of arginine. Not really a problem to take arginine with the Gold.

  454. Jeff says:

    By the way, I’m a 38 year old athletic male that’s been lifting for quite a while…..thanks again.

  455. Bob says:

    Joe M.,
    I am 49 too. I also take creatine and whey powder. As the truth says, you just need to have about a 2 to 3 hour period of time after you last eat before you take your S. Gold. I try to finish eating by 7:00 p.m, so by 10:00 p.m. I am ready for the Gold and then the pillow. I have been taking 2 HGH Surge tabs (somewhat stimulating for me) first thing in the morning and then eat about 2 hours later.
    Good Luck…

  456. kaz purdy says:

    What a brilliant website!! I’ve been trawling the net, trying to find a genuine site, who really do review & recommend products, without selling them theirselves!! Have just bought HGH Surge & Secretagogue Gold thanks to you. What a minefield of false sites & products out there. Thanks!!

  457. Brian says:

    Man Thanks for all you have done here, the time you have put in must be enormous, Merry Christmas

  458. Jay says:

    First off, I want to thank you for all the effort you put into providing consumers with accurate, honest information.

    Secondly, I am a 37 years old man that has a medical condition that has required me to be HRT for the last five years. My last IGF-1 test showed me at 210. I bought the Gold and was hoping it will increase my IGF-1 and HGH.

    I start using it tomorrow for the first time. My question is “Will this product raise my IGF-1 levels, even though I am in the normal range”?

  459. Ryan says:

    Are you suggesting this and HgH surge stacked together is the best possible non injection strategy for HGH success?

    • hgh truths says:

      I am suggesting that it is an interesting and probably additive approach. it is not necessarily the best approach for everyone.

  460. Marco says:

    Hello all, I’m about to buy a months worth of
    S-Gold fo myself and brother in-law, my good friend is interested as well, can I get some feedback from those of you who have been taking the stuff for a couple of months now, thanks a million.

  461. matt says:

    i am a healthy 32yr male, in decent shape, lift 3-4 times a week, just looking to shed those extra pounds of fat and increase muscle mass, is this product worth trying? i use NO now for pre-workout supplement and love the results. considering trying creatine again also.

    • hgh truths says:

      you are at the low end of the age range. You might not get the full results but you should get your moneys worth.

  462. Marco says:

    Hello all, I am about to purchase S-Gold for my brother-in-law and myslef and I would like to know if there is any feedback from those of you that have been taking it for a few months now. Thanks!

  463. Robert says:

    hey all i just wanna say the to admin you deserve a key to the city :) I do a lot of searching and come across a lot of bullshit and i have never come across such a web site so informative and just to the fact what a superb website no bullshit and all fact what more do you need

  464. hgh truths says:

    What part of worthless for people your age don’t you get?

  465. J Rob says:

    I’ve been taking secretogogue gold for the last 3 months, i’m 33, I cant say that it gave me energy but what I can say, but I was loosing hair, but now it’s stopped it seems like i’m growing hair, I’ve lost weight(from working out), i’m not as sore when I wake up in the morning so at 33 I can say it’s helping

  466. Lee says:

    Great site…thanks for your diligence. I’m 46 my workout is in the evening after which I have one of the popular pre-packaged high protein meal replacement shakes. Is 2-3 hours after the shake enough time passed to take the S-Gold or would it be better to take it in the morning? Thanks, Lee

  467. howard says:

    what side effects would Secretagogue have on a teenage female. My daughter plays basketball and wants an hgh enhancer is this safe

  468. Cheese says:

    Hello, I an 34, I workout 5 times a week (pretty intense) and eat well. I’m was looking for something that would help me recover better, get a little leaner and maybe make me feel better during my workouts. Will Secretagogue Gold do the trick? Thanks.

  469. Jody says:

    Kudo’s – I read more bad than good reviews today, and this was an eye opener and very helpful in my search for a good product! At 45, I don’t want to spend $ doing the research. Many thanks!

  470. Louie says:

    Yes, I have been researching and I saw this product, a quick question, will it be safe to take Secretagogue Gold with all my other supplements, like creatine, protein, nitric oxide, and other supplements? Also I’m 23, is it safe??

  472. Adrenalinex04 says:

    Dear Admin,

    I’ve just about finished my first box of Symbiotropin.

    I’m 30 years old, in good cardiovascular shape (still run 5-6 miles with ease at anytime), but over the last few years, I’ve accumulated some extra fat. I’m 5’8 and was at about 177 lbs, 18% body fat last month when I started my first box of symbiotropin. With minor tweaks to my diet, 3 cardio sessions per week, and two resistance training sessions a week I’ve dropped down to 170 lbs and 16.2% BF. I also noticed significantly less fatigue, and improved overall well-being.( I have a very high stress job)

    My questions:

    1) Since I’m seeing such great results with Symbiotropin, should I switch to Secretagogue Gold? I can’t seem to find Symbiotropin cheaper than 67$ a box, and I did find Secretagogue Gold at $45.

    2) Am I too young for Secretagogue Gold? How does it fundamentally differ from Symbiotropin? I noticed Symbiotropin mentions usage for people over 30 versus 35 for Secretagogue.

    Thanks for your info again!

    • hgh truths says:

      Secretagogue One is closer to Symbiotropin and usually a few dolars cheaper to purchase than Secretagogue Gold. 35 is generally a better, more honest estimate for any hgh product but the returns drop rapidlly for each year on the other side of 30.

  473. Mewdeedi says:


    is it safe to continue taking secretagogue gold if i m pregnant?


  474. Adrenalinex04 says:

    Oh, and another question–

    If I wanted to stack ZMA with a HGH protagonist, how would I do it? Since both need to be consumed on an empty stomach before bed? Would either affect the absorption of the other, and if so, how long of a gap do I need between the two.


    • hgh truths says:

      We are already on the record that there is no independent research that shows that ZMA does anything. However, it should not interfer with the hgh product.

  475. Larry B says:

    I have two full boxes of secretagogue gold on my shelf because every time I take it I seem to get diarrhea. I am taking HGH surge instead but would like to take the S. Gold. Have you ever heard of this problem with S. Gold and what are my alternatives.

  476. john r says:

    I am 26 years old and very athletic, will this benefit me ? Or should I wait until I am in my thirties?
    I am bodybuilding for mass.

  477. Clay says:

    I think I would like to try this product…I would have to take it before bed because my schedule doesn’t give me leeway to take it in the morning and then wait an hour until breakfast. My question is: I have trouble sleeping, and take a sleep aid about an hour before going to bed. Will this cause a problem when taking the Secretagogue Gold at the same approximate time?

  478. CW says:

    How does this stuff taste?

  479. adaboy says:

    hello hgh truths: Great website! I was looking all over the site for a summary of your top rated HGH releaser but couldn’t find one. In browsing the site everything was rated so low that I was beginning to think you didn’t give a positive review of any HGH releasers. I finally found mention of Secretagogue Gold which seems to be one of your highest rated GH releaser? A couple of questions: Is it still the overall best in your view? Would you consider Secretagogue Gold & other similar products to be safe & natural? I’m a big believer in natural organic foods & products that don’t put a load on the liver & kidneys & can be taken safely year after year. Thanks

  480. MR says:

    Any idea if this can be purchaced in Australia? almost everything is banned here !

    • hgh truths says:

      We did review a product that is sold in Australia. Just enter Australia into the search box at the upper right of this page. Not sure about Secretagogue Gold.

      The makers of GHR Essentials also sell Secreatgogue Gold and they might ship to Australia.

  481. johnny says:

    im 34 years old 275lbs my goal is to drop weight and build muscle will the Secretagogue Gold help me out doing this…..?

  482. James6speed says:

    I’m 36, excercise well-balanced diet and am planning on starting to use this product with magic green supplementation. Your thoughts on that please.

  483. Bonnie says:

    I am a 56 yr old woman. Came to your site in researching IVL Secretagogue hGH Plus TM. Thanks for steering me away from this one! My question: Does S Gold do anything for high cholesterol? (IVL claims) I’m not over-weight and exercise 4x/week but struggle with high LDL. Don’t want to take a statin drug.

    • hgh truths says:

      There is some evidence that it does but no great hard research. Plant sterols and various omega oil have more solid research.

  484. MR - down under says:

    update.. a week on the S-Gold so far. First few nights I had some weird dreams and woke up a few times with a headache right in the centre of my head, never had that feeling before. Now a week in its not happening so much but I feel groggy if the kids wake me up in the middle of the night..
    I am 40 and now training 4-5 times a week aftter 12 months of noting. Body fat is around 26-29% on the scales ( sounds high as I was once 10% but I dont look like a porker !) I perform heavy compound exercise training with the objective of gaining (lean) muscle mass and a bit of interval/sprint type cardio.
    So far its hard to attribute any feelings of well being or muscle gain to the product as I will have some muscle memory kicking in and am also taking Tribulus, Creatine and eating 5 times a day inc protein powders etc.
    Will update in another week or so.. I will be very pleased if it lives up to the hype !

  485. robert says:

    thanks for your time! I am a 63 yr.old male 1st time user of SG and want to pick up energy and lose 50 lbs.what type of hoodia would you recommend and anything else besides the SG for energy?

    • hgh truths says:

      I tried the hoodia from Costco and found that it worked and seemed to be quality. The kind I bought had a reddish label on a brown bottle and were capsules.

      An interesting tidbit is that the estimate sales of hoodia in the US vastly exceeds the amount of hoodia harvested.

  486. Larry says:

    What kind of effect will this product have on heart rate, are the effects anything like ephedrine?

  487. alex says:

    Hello: thanks for all the tips. Do you feel the Secretagogue Gold is as effective for women as men? thank you

  488. alex says:

    Maybe I should have given you specifics: I am a 47 y.o. woman in fairly good shape. Tried MediTropin for about four months and had good results, but have been looking for something cheaper. You review was very helpful. Before I buy this product I wanted to know if you think it is as effective for women as it is for men — it looks like most comments have been from men users. Thank you so much!

  489. Kevin says:

    I’m a 22 year old male and I was wondering if this product w0uld be good for dieting, weight lifting and would it help with the better memory and eye sight? I also have had 2 ACL injuries which is the main reason I am looking this up, will this help strengthen ligaments? One place I read it breaks down ligaments and another said it makes them stronger…please help!!! I just wanna get back to playin bball lol

  490. Hefe says:

    First off – thank you – this is really helpful as I start my search.

    Stats: 40 years old, recreational tri-athlete, medium weight training 3-4 days a week.

    My goal is to help recover, or prevent the minor aches and pains that have become more commonplace over the last 5 years (knee, back ankle etc.). Also a good side effect would be leaning up – although I really only have 5-7 lbs that need to be cleaned up but is harder at this age.

    I work out at 5:00 am and eat every 2-3 hours starting at 8:00 am.

    My question is, because I haven’t really seen it addressed here is, will this help with recovery or prevention of the “rib injury that happened while I was sleeping”.

    Thanks – this is much appreciated!

  491. Ruben says:

    I have been looking for hgh releasers, so many claim to be the best that if you’re not an expert in this subject it’s hard to know who is telling the truth, thus difficult to make a decision. I came across one product that caught my attention because of the following statement. Is it true?

    The formulation is supported by the grant of US patent number 6,346,264
    (this can be viewed on the Web, US patent and full text Database). Do not be mislead
    by other products with a “patent pending”. Anyone can apply for a patent, it’s easy,
    pending just means you have applied for one. Very few are ever granted. The SomaLife patent took over two years to get and cost in excess of a quarter of a million dollars.

  492. dennis says:

  493. razz says:

    hi.. just wanna ask u some questions.. what is the difference between UltraMAX HGH Gold and this SG? From what i overheard UltraMAX HGH Gold works well and better as compare to SG? because i went to many shop here in asia and it stated the same.. can you explain to me in details for both products? cause i am currently taking UltraMAX HGH Gold but for long run, it will be expensive as compare to Sg.. deeply appreciate it if you could reply me.. thanks!! =)

    I received information on the mail about a product called secretagogue hGH plus
    By the institute of vibrant living do you know anything about it?

    I’m a 62 year old male. Energy level could be better. I had an Achilles surgey two years ago that didn’t go well and I’m still recovering from that. I also have problems slepping a full night. I ordered Secretagogue Gold today and hope this product will help with energy, the remainig belly fat, skin tone — and all the other things people hope for with an hgh supplement.

    Highly descriptive post, I liked that a lot. Will there be a part 2?

  499. JeffDr says:

    I am a 39 year old man that is now hitting that point of life that our bodies begin to decrease in generating hormones that we all have when we’re younger. I have been using an HGH Spray from the Dr Max Powers brand for the past week now with fantastic results. The first thing I noticed right away was that I sleep much deeper and have restful nights. When Im running at the gym, I usually get winded after a short period of time but since I have been using the Dr Max Powers HGH, I can run 2+ miles with no fatigue. I have increased speed, strength, endurance and recovery time. The vital points of a mans body that always need focusing on trimmed down within this first week.

    I’m excited that I have found HGH and have already recommended it to all of my family and friends.

  500. matt says:

    do you see any pariticular problems with taking “Gold” at night and then taking “one” during the day?

    I’ve been taking GOld for a few months and was just thinking of add “one” for an extra kick.


  501. John Boyce says:

    I followed these guys when they were a team of 4 trying out these new products and watched as their reviews grew. Their honesty was was refreshing. Now, I see the gold standards of hGH have been reduced in the ratings and the highest priced product ($109) has the highest. Folks, these guys have been bought out and you must be more careful in what you read. The price of the product, so regular folk could afford it, was one of the evaluation criteria – no longer. The review for Secratatropin HGH reads like a marketing ad. And it this ad, it gives itself an A+. These guys would never have done that! I have a snap of this site from 2009 and Secreatagogue regular and Gold were the ONLY A rated hGH products. Now they have both been demoted to B?

  502. I used to be recommended this website by way of my cousin.
    I’m no longer certain whether this post is written through him as no one else understand such distinctive about my trouble. You’re amazing!
    Thank you!

  503. John says:

    Can we see a list from most recommended to least recommended HGH / Secretegogue products? This would make life sooooo much easier for those of us that can not spend hours reading all of the reviews.

    Thank you.

  504. John says:

    Better yet, could you send me an email with your top 3 picks?


  505. You now know consequently considerably in terms of this particular subject matter, taught me to for my part visualize them originating from a lots of many attitudes. It has the similar to individuals will not be interested until finally it’s something to perform along with Rhianna! Your individual products awesome. At all times handle that!

  506. Cecilia Ching says:

    I stumbled upon this website and found the earlier Q&As interesting. However, I notice there were no answers to all queries since late Feb 2010?
    May I know if the writer of this blog or administrator of this website is still around to answer questions about Secretagogue Gold. Please give us a reply to show that this site is still alive. Thank you.

  507. tom minor says:

    Can you tell me if Brewers Yeast such Lewis Labs or Solgar would be good for GH?

    The typical naturally occurring Amino Acids Profile seem to possess a lot of the ingredients found in you list of ‘B’ and ‘A’ graded products.

    Your help on this question would be appreciated.

  508. Winslow Foster says:

    Has anyone done IGF blood tests before and after using this or other products?
