With endless weight gainers, protein powders and pre-workout drinks flooding the market, have growth hormone (GH) support supplements been lots in a sea of products?
Because GH production and its benefits are not one of the most easy to understand concepts is it ok to just sweep them under the carpet?
Adapt Nutrition brought us GH Assist in 2015 and if you haven’t done your homework let me bring you up to speed as to why this is the perfect addition to anyone’s supplement stack. The areas you are going to see clear benefits in are:
- Improved lean muscle mass
- Reduced body fat
- Overall better body composition
- Improved immune function
- Anti-aging effects
- Improved cognitive function
Making it a great addition to a cutting or lean mass protocol and ideal for anyone looking to take part in a full body re-composition.
So let’s dig down into how the product itself works……
GH Assist or is a Choline (ALPHA GPC, L-Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine) based product whose sole purpose is to help naturally increase serum GH levels when compared to baseline values. It indirectly does this by increasing the effect of GHRH (Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone), which stimulates increased production of GH by the brains pituitary gland.
There have been several studies undertaken which support this and when used as a pre-workout supplement specifically (which is when I used this product) levels have been seen to increase post exercise serum GHG levels by up to 200%. Now this may only last for around 60 minutes but when timed perfectly in line with your post workout nutrition and recovery window the potential for dramatic improvements in muscle repair and growth are huge. Couple this with GH’s ability to increase fat oxidisation and you have a recipe for a great overall change in body composition.
Lean muscle growth and fat loss are the 2 profound benefits you will see when taking one 900mg serving of GH –Assist pre workout. But don’t forget (and something I wanted to mention) the increase in immune function and overall general running of the body in my opinion this contributed massively to efficiently living an athletic lifestyle. With everything from deeper sleep and improved energy levels to better information processing and retention by the brain, which trust me when dieting is a huge benefit!
This year I will be stepping on stage at the WBFF in London and GH Assist is going to be a key part of my stack to help me dial in my physique for the muscle model class. Already feeling confident as I know GH Assist will keep my body in check and ticking over efficiently so that my prep runs as smoothly as possible.
