NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While the Obesity Society's prestigious 30 th Annual Scientific Meeting is the venue for some of the most cutting-edge obesity research in the world, at this year's conference the main highlight wasn't weight loss, but was instead — believe it or not — anti-aging. Research presented by a group of highly renowned scientists revealed an oral compound that experts are predicting could completely revolutionize both the anti-aging and weight-loss industries. How can one dietary supplement cause such a stir in two vastly different industries? It's because the supplement, SeroVital™-hgh from SanMedica™ International, was shown in a double-blind clinical trial to raise human growth hormone levels in the body. But what does this have to do with weight loss and aging? Human growth hormone has been called the fountain of youth. People say it can reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass, boost mood, strengthen bones, heighten sex drive, give you plenty of energy and get rid of wrinkles… making you look and feel decades — not years, but decades — younger. Athletes have been using it for years to give them a competitive edge… women are just now discovering its rejuvenating promise, and celebrities from L.A. to New York have been visiting some of the most expensive clinics in the world to get their monthly supply. Until this weekend's research presentation, the most effective way to increase your growth hormone levels was prescription HGH injections. The problem with this is that only the very, very wealthy can afford it… costs can run as high as $15,000 or more per year. But with the release of SeroVital-hgh, youthful human growth hormone levels will no longer be available only to the rich and famous. So What Is HGH? Human growth hormone is a 191 amino acid, single chain peptide hormone. It's manufactured deep within the brain… in the pituitary gland… where it's released into the bloodstream and travels throughout the body. It passes into your fat cells and can actually cause them to shrink. It enters your muscle cells, stimulating lean muscle growth so you look more toned, even if you haven't been working out. When it reaches the skin it maintains healthy blood flow, ramps up collagen production, and strengthens the underlying substructure of the skin's critical architecture… keeping your skin firm, tight and smooth… which is why so many experts call HGH the "youth" hormone.
