SST-1: GH – Growth Hormone Mimic by Blackstone Labs
An IGF-1 precursor and growth hormone mimic, SST-1: GH will increase and develop new muscle. If improved sense of well being, increased muscle mass and protein synthesis, increased lean muscle, higher energy levels, increased endurance, increased flexibility, increased libido (sexual performance) and improved immune function are your goals – then SST-1: GH from Blackstone is just what the doctor ordered.
Mucuna Pruriens Extract (seed) (Yielding 500mg L-Dopa per serving) – SST-1: GH is based primarily upon the active ingredient L-DOPA (also called Levodopa) (L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine). L-DOPA is extracted from mucuna pruriens or velvet bean seeds. It is the precursor of the neurotransmitter dopamine which itself is the precursor of neurotransmitters nor-epinephrine and epinephrine. DOPA is consumed to generate dopamine; supporting healthy mood and mental alertness. It has been known for over 40 years that L-DOPA is an effective stimulant of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) which has many benefits including improved sense of well being, increased muscle mass and protein synthesis, increased lean muscle, higher energy levels, increased endurance, increased flexibility, increased libido (sexual performance) and improved immune function. However, the challenges such as poor blood brain barrier penetration always caused the ingredient to only be marginally effective.
Anterior Pituitary Peptides – The second powerful compound in SST-1: GH is anterior pituitary peptides. The pituitary gland is about the size of a bean, and it hangs by a stalk from the hypothalamus. Even though the gland is tiny, its power should not be underestimated. In fact, this gland is sometimes referred to as the ‘master gland’ because hormones from this gland affect your body’s metabolism, growth and development, and libido. Growth hormone is a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland that promotes growth. It does this in a number of ways, including stimulating cells to grow and divide, increasing bone and muscle growth, and increasing protein synthesis. The anterior pituitary has been shown to contain a wide variety of bioactive peptides. Anterior pituitary peptides contain GH-secreting peptides that trigger growth hormone release in the body. However, similar to L-Dopa anterior pituitary peptides have low oral bioavailability. However, when manufactured into a liposomal form anterior pituitary peptides promote natural production and release of HGH. Blackstone has developed the perfect one-two punch with respect to GH by using anterior pituitary peptides and Mucuna pruriens containing L-Dopa utilizing its proprietary liposomal technology.
