WASHINGTON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It's been called the fountain of youth. They 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, and now women have discovered 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. It's called human growth hormone, or hGH, and — believe it or not — it's been one of the hottest topics of conversation at The Academy of Women's Health's prestigious 21 st Annual Congress in Washington, DC. It's clear that human growth hormone is no longer the sole province of male athletes and competitive bodybuilders, and nowhere was this fact made more obvious than at the women's health conference. Although it plays host to some of the most renowned women's health researchers in the world, one of the most buzzed about exhibitors at yesterday's opening was SanMedica International™ LLC, distributor of SeroVital™-hgh, a revolutionary new oral human growth hormone booster. "Research is revealing that growth hormone is a vital aspect of women's health that could affect everything from obesity to skin and aging to sex drive," says Gina Daines, spokesperson for SanMedica. "Many of the women's health experts attending this conference have seen that research and are beginning to realize the huge potential increased hGH levels could have for the women in their care." And with the recent media frenzy surrounding hGH, it's easy to see how word about the importance of this vital hormone is spreading so quickly. Human growth hormone has been featured on The Today Show, CNN, Fox News, The Dr. Oz Show, and in Vanity Fair and Shape. And although SeroVital-hgh itself has only been available for about six months, it's already broken records in Parade magazine, been featured in Shape, on Radar Online, and on New York Live, and been touted by makeup artists in magazines like Star and OK! SeroVital began making headlines when the research behind it was first presented at The Obesity Society's most recent Annual Scientific Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, where a group of highly acclaimed research scientists revealed that this tiny little pill was actually capable of increasing mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels... by an astounding 682%. And although SanMedica is enjoying all the popular media attention it's received, the company was excited to get back to its research roots by taking SeroVital to the Women's Health Conference. "We've been thrilled about the opportunity to share our research with the highly respected group of women's healthcare providers who are attending the conference," says Dr. Amy Heaton, PhD, Director of Scientific Affairs for SanMedica International who has been available at the conference to answer any questions. "The research behind SeroVital is not only revolutionary because it proves there's an oral compound capable of increasing growth hormone levels naturally — without synthetic injections — but also because it was the first clinical trial of its kind to test a compound's growth hormone boosting effects not just on young males, but on both men and women across an appropriately wide age range. We think it's important to let women's health experts know just how well women responded to the SeroVital complex." Despite the double-blind, placebo-controlled research behind SeroVital-hgh, some skeptics are saying it sounds too good to be true. So is there a catch? Well, there are three. First, as with hGH injections, SeroVital-hgh is not a "magic bullet" but one part of a healthy lifestyle choice including a sensible diet and exercise regimen. And, just like hGH injections, you have to remember to renew your monthly supply.
