WASHINGTON, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Academy of Women's Health's prestigious 21 st Annual Congress in Washington, D.C. concluded yesterday, and while it was the venue for some of the most cutting-edge women's health research in the world, at this year's conference one of the main highlights was — believe it or not — an oral human growth hormone (hGH) booster called SeroVital™-hgh. So why was growth hormone such a hot topic at a conference for women? Because hGH is no longer just for professional athletes. In fact, everyone from soccer moms to Hollywood A-Listers have been visiting some of the most expensive clinics in the world for controversial hGH injections due to growth hormone's touted ability to reduce wrinkles, decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass, boost energy, rev up sex drive, and make you look and feel decades — not years, but DECADES — younger. "Human growth hormone is no longer solely the province of male athletes," says Gina Daines, spokesperson for SanMedica International™, SeroVital's distributor. "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." SeroVital began making waves in the research world when the results of the double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial on its highly specialized, proprietary, patent-pending key compound were presented for the first time at The Obesity Society's most recent Annual Scientific Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. At this exclusive conference, a group of some of the most renowned research scientists in the world revealed that this tiny little pill was actually capable of increasing mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels... by an astounding 682%. And it isn't just those involved with the world of clinical research that have become so interested in human growth hormone. It seems everyone's been talking about it; hGH 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! So just what is this hormone that caused such a stir at one of D.C.'s most talked about women's conferences? Human growth hormone is a single chain peptide hormone that's manufactured deep within the brain... in the pituitary gland. 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 tight and 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... and why some believe it's the key to combatting aging.
