Does GHB really increase growth hormone?

I think it has been shown that GHB does result in a brief increase in GH, but NOT that it increases total daily output.

In the real world, there are a lot of things that give this kind of pulse response of GH, for example arginine and OKG, and none of them have proven the slightest practical value in bodybuilding. Presumably because they give you a pulse now, but it’s just GH you would have gotten later anyway.

It may show an increase in lab tests, but it’s a lame product. Everyone I know who has tried it recieved zero results (except for drowzyness and the occasional hangover). If it worked well, all the club kids and rave goers would look like Andre the Giant or Tony Robbins (j/k).
