There are many supplements on the market claiming to increase HGH levels miraculously and treat even severe GH deficiency.
But the reality is not as great as the marketing claims it to be. The first
piece of advice is to stay away from the products that hide under “proprietary blend” marketing and do not disclose their formula. All proven, well-known, and effective ingredients.
The most effective supplements for boosting HGH naturally are glutamine,
arginine, lysine, and ornithine amino acids, Deer Velvet Antler, GABA, and
There are decent complexes available on iHerb, just be sure to find the best price/value solution and not a shiny overpriced one.
SUPPLEMENTS’ PROS AND CONS
Peptide HGH Secretagogues
Another popular approach to increasing HGH levels is through peptide growth hormone secretagogues.
We briefly covered them before. Most of them work by activating the ghrelin receptor responsible for hunger. This, in turn, activates endogenous HGH production.
Most popular peptides include:
GHRP-2, GHRP-6, Ipamorelin, Hexarelin, Ibutamoren (Mk-677). Their intake leads to rapid and short spikes in HGH serum levels.
Another class of peptides influences growth hormone-releasing hormone, which in turn, leads to more HGH production. The secretagogues of this type are CJC-1295 W and without DAC, Tesamorelin and Sermorelin.
Note – those secretagogues are in the research stage and are not approved for human consumption but you can buy them online easily.

Exogenous HGH Injections
The most straightforward way to increase HGH levels is getting it from the outside. That’s when synthetic HGH comes into play. Initially developed to help kids with GH deficiency to grow and develop, HGH has become very popular in both sports and wellness communities.
The mechanism is simple – you inject growth hormone and it acts in your body just like your endogenous one.
