After spending sometime reading and following the HGH threads and coming to the realisation that exogenous administration is simply not an option at this point.
Consequently, I have researched 'natural' methods of increasing HGH levels and it appears particular amino's appear to offer some merit under certain conditions.
Three in particular, arginine, ornithine and lysine, have supportive literature and may be more effective in conjunction with each other than when administered alone.
Here is an article which addresses these matters with references.
Now I know both Barr and TC have poo-poo'd this concept to a certain extent in past articles on this site. However, I feel they overlooked some key characteristics for this concept to be explored to its full potential in their writings.
Barr was concerned with the effect of arginine around workout time versus the rest of the day or long term sporadic administration.
TC was closer to the mark suggesting that for the amino concept to have merit users would have to take capsules multiple times a day to mimic natural GH release. His concern was based upon cost and adherence as arginine should probably be taken around 5-10 grams per serving which is certainly a lot of capsules (if you go the capsule way).
So the $10,000 question; do you think there is a possibility of getting a 'significant' increase in HGH levels from taking multiple (3-6 x day), upper limit doses of the three aforementioned AA's?
