Anyone use Sero Vital HGH "anti-aging" supplement?

There was an article in my local paper about this product. It's supposed to make you leaner and firmer by washing away the fat and increasing muscle growth. They were saying that it is the first non-injection type of HGH supplement that was showing some results. I'm not really familiar with HGH regimens but I have to admit that the idea of looking "decades" younger is appealing. They sell it at Ulta but it's pretty expensive so I was wondering if anyone has used it and what sort of results have you seen?

Made me sick to my stomach so I sold it on ebay. I guess a lot of other people didn't like it either, check out eBay's listings!

I have questions about whether or not this product actually stimulates enough HGH to have an effect on weight and aging. The double blind study to back up their scientific claims? Only 16 people were included in the study, meaning 8 tried Sero Vital and 8 got a placebo! This is an extremely small sample to base these kinds of claims on. Also, the study was conducted on two days one week apart, so there is no data for long term usage. http://www.serovital.com/the-science.html/

That said, if it does work, I'd be wary. While HGH sounds like the fountain of youth, it comes with side effects, some of them serious. It can cause weight gain and acne. It can cause pain, swelling due to edema, high cholesterol, increased risk of diabetes, and contribute to the growth of cancerous tumors.

Personally, I'd save myself some money and stay away from it.

Sometimes I think that the only anti-aging benefits from some of this stuff is an early death.

They made me change my name! So, I dropped an 'e.' Formerly Kathleen.

If it truly stimulates or even contains HGH, leave it alone.

I've been googling all of these HGH stimulator supplements and it sounds like they really don't do much of anything. Apparently it has to be injected to work and it does sound dangerous. Oh well...back to trying to age gracefully.
