A friend of mine gave me a box of SeroVital capsules to try. She said she and her baby boomer gal pals swear by the results: more pep, fewer wrinkles, and feeling great.
Color me skeptical but I like to look into something I’m supposed to ingest before diving in. Plus, with a price tag of about $100 for a 40-day supply ordered online, I wanted to be sure the dietary supplement made by SanMedica International is worth the capital outlay.
It didn’t take long to find out what this product is all about and what it is supposed to do. Sharing is caring so read on to see if you might want to try this revolutionary therapy.
SeroVital is packed with five important amino acids – L-Lysine HCL, L-Arginine HCL, Oxo-Proline, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, and L-Glutamine – plus the Asian herb Japanese Catnip (Schizonepeta powder). The amino acids are essential or conditionally essential – the body can’t produce them or can’t produce enough of them.
Japanese Catnip is used medicinally in China and Korea to treat skin allergies and to fight infections.
Taken together, the ingredients inside SeroVital capsules allegedly stimulate the body’s natural production of human growth hormone (hGh).
The manufacturer claims that used as directed, age-defying SeroVital helps boost the body’s natural production of hGh, linked to:
- Reducing body fat
- Boosting mood
- Getting rid of wrinkles
- Tightening saggy skin
- Looking and feeling younger
SeroVital is also supposed to strengthen bones and increase lean muscle mass. An interesting fact is that people with higher body fat typically have lower hGH levels. After exercise and sleep, hGH levels go. The body produces more hGh at night than during the day.
One thrilled user named Shauna whose screen name is “chicover50” (chick over 50) gushed:
“This stuff is MAGIC… Yay for anything that helps us when it comes to the aging process!”
Women who included SeroVital in their daily regime slept better, had more energy and an elevated mood, experienced increased muscle mass, and reported reduced fine lines and wrinkles as well as radiant skin that became firmer and tighter.
The pituitary gland, located in the center of the brain, produces hGh which is key for bone and muscle growth, body composition, cell repair, and metabolism.
It plays important roles in bone and muscle growth, body composition, and cell repair and metabolism. It can boost strength and exercise performance and speed up recovery times as well.
A study reported in March 2019 showed that the 45 participants with low-normal levels of hGh who took SeroVital every day for 24 weeks benefited from increased production of natural hGh. The researchers reported excellent tolerability and safety of their product tested.
Over the course of the 12-week study, the participants made no changes to their daily routines except to add the SeroVital supplement. From the first week until the last week, the subject’s hGh marker (endogenous IGF-1, a primary mediator of the effects of hGH) rose steadily and stayed above baseline (the pre-test reading) throughout the study.
“In addition, the subjects experienced improvements in body weight, perceived stress, clinical symptoms, and fasting cardiometabolic markers,” the study’s lead author Dr. Susan Pekarovics noted on March 24 in New Orleans at the Endocrine Society’s annual conference called ENDO 2019.
Both men and women need hGh. It is an essential hormone involved in sleep, metabolism, mood, energy, concentration, sex drive, and a youthful-looking complexion.
The study participants had failed to benefit from “standard healthy lifestyle recommendations” such as a calorie-restricted diet and 45-minute daily walks. Dr. Pekarovics concluded that SeroVital supports natural hGH production with low risk and is cost-effective:
“I was originally introduced to SeroVital from a colleague and was interested in the science backing the product. The study results were impressive, and I thought this could be a great supplement to offer some of my patients. I was very pleased with the results that came from this new research and am glad with the response from my colleagues at this prestigious conference.”
Another name for hGh is “Youth Hormone.” We know that hGh production naturally falls off after our mid-twenties – and it can plunge dramatically. It would make sense that a human growth hormone supplement would make up for dwindling natural production in older age.
One Amazon customer left this testimony:
“After reading the reviews, it’s obvious that this supplement does not work for everyone. However, it works for me. I have been taking it for 9 months, and I am very careful not to eat for two hours before or after taking it [as directed]. I take it in the afternoon, so that eliminates any afternoon snacking. After about 3 months, I noticed that my face looked better. Wrinkles were not as pronounced and my neck looked firmer. My hair had been getting very thin on top. Now it looks and feels fuller. Best of all, I have much more energy than I had last year at this time.”
“I am on my third box of SeroVital-hgh. I am 55 years old and I have noticed more energy, better sleep, better muscle tone, and better-looking skin… I am a believer,” raved Laurie L.
Some reviewers said they got no gain from taking SeroVital and didn’t recommend the product. Others reported negative side effects, including:
- Swelling of hands and feet
- Achy joints
As with any dietary supplement, follow the directions and consult with your healthcare provider if you have special needs or known conditions. I am looking forward to sharing my personal findings in a future article after I product-test SeroVital – so stay tuned!
