Is GenF20 Plus a scam? Why do they suggest that you use the spray and the pills at the same time? If you're worried that you're throwing your money away on HGH supplements that won't live up to the hype, read on. We've done a thorough investigation into the science so that you don't have to.
GenF20 Plus is a fairly famous name is the HGH releaser business. GenF20 Plus has been on the market for quite awhile now, and claims to have one of the best formulations (and best potency) out there. If you're in the market for a natural HGH releasing supplement, you have probably heard about GenF20 Plus, and are wondering if it will actually help you reach your goals for your life and your body, or if it is just another scam.
You're right to be suspicious; it's easy to make claims on the internet. The important thing to remember is that no matter what you're researching, there will be people devoted to it who think it is the best product on the market, and people who dismiss the entire category entirely (for example: “HGH releasers?
Everyone knows you have to inject the real stuff to get results!”) For this reason, the only thing you can do, before you spend your money, is to think about what you read very carefully and make up your own mind. And when it comes to products like GenF20 Plus, where everyone is making money off of selling them, you need to be especially careful. The author of this article came across several reviews that started off saying Genf20plus was terrible, and ended up saying “this is great, buy it.” What sense does that make?
There are substances which are proven to cause the pituitary gland to release HGH. In fact, doctors test individuals for HGH deficiency by giving them these substances and measuring how much HGH the pituitary releases in response. If it releases none or very little, the individual is diagnosed as HGH deficient. In healthy, ageing individuals, the pituitary gland will release more HGH in response to these substances. Therefore it is possible to raise HGH levels without injecting artificial HGH and risking serious side effects and potential legal consequences.
No one could blame you for thinking that it is. The website is overhyped and seems almost desperate. They make sloppy errors, such as showing endorsements by “doctors” where two of the doctors' testimonials contain the exact same two sentences, word for word. It's not uncommon for testimonials from real doctors to be scripted—much like celebrity endorsements, endorsements by doctors are paid gigs and any doctors you see on commercials are reading from a script. In fact, your family doctor might be receiving incentives to prescribe you one brand of drug over another. In other words, just because they were too lazy to write different scripts for the doctors doesn't mean they aren't real doctors.
Dig deeper into the GenF20 Plus website and you start to see a lot of transparency, which is refreshing from a natural supplement sold over the internet. Not only are the ingredients listed, but so are them amounts of each ingredient. That makes it easy to do some independent research and see if the daily dosing regimen actually contains enough of the active ingredients to boost your HGH levels...and surprisingly enough, it does. A good example is the deer antler velvet. Deer antler velvet is a natural source of IGF-1, a substance produced in response the HGH and responsible for many of HGH's effects. In an article completely unaffiliated with GenF20 Plus (found by the author) a doctor of sports medicine is debunking supplement sprays, claiming that they do not work because “A 154 pound (70 kg) man would need to consume 25.2 million nanograms of IGF-1 per day to have the same effects as taking growth hormone.” Well, a nanogram is a billionth of a gram. A milligram is a thousandth of a gram. That means that there are one million nanograms in a milligram. And in the daily dosing of GenF20 Plus, there are 200mg, or 200 million nanograms, of deer antler velvet. That is almost 8 times the dose needed to achieve HGH-like effects in the body of a 154lb male, and keep in mind that deer antler velvet is only one of many proven ingredients in GenF20plus.;
The author was confused as well. If the pills are so good (and they do seem to be—all the ingredients check out as proven effective, there are high doses in the supplement, the tablets are coated to make sure stomach acid doesn't destroy the ingredients before they get into the bloodstream) why is a spray needed, as well? Is this really just a way to make a few pills a day seem like a “system” and make more money off of unsuspecting people?
The site claims that when research came out about Alpha GPC, they knew they had to include it in their system, and so they created the oral spray. But other than Alpha GPC, most of the other ingredients in the spray are included in the pills! Why not just add Alpha GPC to the pills, then? Frankly, this author is a little sceptical. All the site says is to take the spray as well, for “maximum effectiveness.”
I do have a couple of theories, however. One is that oral sprays deliver medication into the bloodstream faster, so the spray would be fast acting while the pills would be longer lasting. On the other hand, as a customer, I could just buy more pills and space them out more. For example, instead of taking two pills twice a day, I could take one pill, six times a day. The extra two pills would make up for the dosage I'm missing from the spray, and spacing them out more would ensure a steady stream of the ingredients in my system.
Perhaps this dosing system helps balance out and account for the differences in individual customers. For example, someone with particularly strong stomach acid might eat through the enteric coating on the pills faster and destroy some of the active ingredients in their gut, but the spray would make up for that.
The answer probably just lies in marketing, however. A “regimen” seems more sophisticated and scientific than just a boring old pill. And that can help sell more units. There's really nothing wrong with that, however, as long as the product works. Retailers use similar tricks with everything from women's cosmetics to beer and deodorant. At the end of the day, if the product delivers results, no one feels “tricked” by the fancy packaging and over-the-top commercials. (Did you feel lied to the last time you cracked a beer and weren't immediately surrounded by gorgeous blonde 19 year olds jumping up and down in miniskirts and white tank tops? You probably still enjoyed the beer.)
The point is that, just because a company pushes hard to sell a product, doesn't mean the product doesn't work. Since GenF20 Plus currently offers free bottles of the spray when you order boxes of the pills, and considering they have a 60 day, money back guarantee, it probably isn't too big of a risk to give it a try and add the spray to your regimen.
