SOMASTATIN Helps Stop Growth Hormone Resistance
Just like insulin is the inhibitor to glucose, Somatostatin (the anti-growth hormone) inhibits Growth Hormone to cause premature aging.
Now, there's a clinically proven solution and it's called
Insulin resistance causes diabetes later in life. Growth Hormone resistance causes premature aging. Growth Hormone resistance is caused by rising levels of Somatostatin, and unlike insulin resistance, Growth Hormone resistance affects everyone. Now, there's SOMASTATIN.
Dr. Ronald Klatz, President of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, has this to say about GH resistance and its cause: "Studies have shown that the aging pituitary somatotrophe cell is still able to release as much Growth Hormone as the young cell if it is adequately stimulated. This means that the fault must lie somewhere in the factors that regulate its release. Something happens in the feedback loop between the release of IGF-1 in the liver and the hypothalamus. Ordinarily, a decline in IGF-1 tells the hypothalamus in the brain to direct the pituitary to make more Growth Hormone. But this critical feedback loop breaks down with age. Some researchers believe that the problem lies with Somatostatin, the unfortunate natural inhibitor of Growth Hormone. It has been found to increase with age and may act to block the secretion of growth hormone. When researchers knocked out the action of somatostatin in old rats, they had GH pulses that were as large as those of young rats. The effect in the body is similar to what happens with another hormone, insulin.
With age, we become less sensitive to insulin. As a result, we do not metabolize glucose as efficiently, and consequently there is a rise in blood glucose. In about a third of the older population, this insulin resistance, which is related to the kind of spare-tire obesity seen with aging, is severe enough to be a disease - type 2 diabetes.... The latest thinking is that a similar phenomenon happens with Growth Hormone. Not only does the amount of Growth Hormone available to the tissues decline with age, but, our tissues fail to respond to the Growth Hormone that is there. In this view, aging can be seen as a disease of Growth Hormone resistance in the same way that type 2 diabetes is a disease of insulin resistance."
SOMASTATIN comes in a combined two-part formula, the first part containing specially developed GH and IGF-1 peptides, and the second an anti-Somatostatin called Retrostatin (a powerful suppresser of an antagonistic hormone called Somatostatin, responsible for what is called the negative feedback loop for GH). The mechanism here is simple but important, and has been a problem area with synthetic injectables and over-the-counter GH products. No matter what form of GH product you use, SOMASTATIN makes it much more powerful. That's because, when the body perceives a rise in either IGF-1 (insulin growth factor) or GH, it responds by releasing the inhibiting agent, Somatostatin, which in turn shuts down the natural production and utilization of GH until the GH levels drop back down in one's system. When using a GH Supplement, such as our AEON, this allows you to use approximately twenty-five percent less SOMASTATIN. This process is called "potentiation" or "synergy."
Synthetic injectable HGH is today heavily prescribed, but it requires the supervision of a physician, and is prohibitively expensive ($1,200.00 to $3,500.00 per mo.). GH injections only address one aspect of Growth Hormone Therapy and are accompanied potentially by negative side effects. This is why many medical practitioners indicate the use SOMASTATIN concurrently with HGH injection therapy to help minimize the potential negative effects that high dosage injection therapy causes.
Essentially, with synthetic injectable GH, you are giving your body mimetic peptides that mimic Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH). These injections only work on the pituitary gland in the brain, (the reservoir for GH), neglecting the hypothalamus gland, where natural GH production begins. With SOMASTATIN, you are giving your body a small, concentrated, bio-activated formulation that strongly increases your natural production of GH by stimulating the hypothalamus with GHRP'S (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides). You are also blocking Somatostatin, so that your GH levels can keep rising to natural, youthful levels. SOMASTATIN has dramatically exceeded our expectations in unpublished animal studies at Harvard University where it was shown to increase GH levels by 800% in middle age rats.
SOMASTATIN is scientifically developed with specific Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRP's) which target the hypothalamic-pituitary axis (the hormonal system that regulates GH production). The transport mechanisms in this product are also quite critical because the GHRP fractions are unusually fragile and must be completely protected, quickly and efficiently absorbed, and then transported to the target cells where they will enzymatically lock onto receptor sites and activate GH production and utilization.
How do you take a powerful formula and make it even better? By applying M.A.P.S™ micronutrient delivery technology for improving transport mechanisms, absorption, bio-availability, concentration and purity. All ingredients are prepared with M.A.P.S micronutrient delivery technology, which provides them ultra concentrated, 100% pure, micro-activated, cell site specific, and so purely effective that only nanogram dosages are used. SOMASTATIN is absorbed transmucosally (through the inner lining of the mouth and cheek). The "Mucosa," as it's called, is a very efficient biological pathway, a pathway that the liver recognizes and does not 'barrier restrict' as it does many chemical substances. Since the enzymatically bound ingredients carry a negative ionic charge, they are efficiently absorbed from the bloodstream into the cells by electro kinesis, after the target tissue has been enzymatically locked onto. Our formulation, which contains the powerful key ingredient called Retrostatin™ (an anti-Somatostatin), effectively blocks the release of Somatostatin, .
Please note: Once you begin taking this product, and your body is generating/regenerating tissue, it usually requires more healthy nutrition, especially quality protein, and more sleep. Do you remember the hunger and extended sleep periods when you were going through growth spurts as a youngster? Be sure to meet these needs and realize that it is perfectly normal to desire an additional healthy snack and a short nap at times. This is a good indication that you are taking a very effective Growth Hormone potentiator.
