Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Aging is a disease, physician Klatz and science writer Kahn maintain, as becomes more obvious every time medical science discovers another way to reverse the effects of such severe age-associated afflictions as stroke and heart attack. They stress the benefits of human growth hormone--HGH. Aging typically begins when the body's production of HGH starts falling off, and it has been shown clinically and experimentally that injections of HGH have helped aging people lose weight and increase muscle mass, regain lost strength and endurance, resharpen memory and visual acuity, restore sexual function, and even bring hair back where it had fled. Thus, the first half of their book. The second consists of advice on finding an antiaging doctor, hormone therapy, and boosting natural hormone production through diet and exercise. In the epilogue, Klatz and Kahn predict that in 55 years, "physical immortality will be a reality." Many may scoff at that conclusion, but HarperCollins is betting a 150,000-copy first printing that those bent on getting better, not older, will find what precedes it irresistible. Ray Olson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read this book and, like so many other people, I was very impressed. I then went out and used Ultra Max hGH from The Ageless Foundation for six months at a cost of $600. I had absolutely no results. I waited a couple of months and then tried a subliminal homeopathic oral HGH from Icom Nutritional Research Labs. This cost about $190 and once again, I could discern no results. Then I went into Edwin M. Lichten, M.D.'s [website] which was listed on page 319 of Dr. Katz's book. In this website, Dr. Licten explains why oral HGH does not work!
In all fairness to Dr. Katz, I believe his book focuses on HGH injections. Only near the end of the book does he promote secretagogues. Dr. Lichten is highly supportive of the injections, but he claims that after age fifty (I was exactly that age when I tried this) the oral HGH will not get your hormones up to the point of being effective.
I know that there are many people saying how great it has worked for them and some of them may be telling the truth, but bear in mind that anyone selling these products can write a review and act like they are Jane or Joe Consumer. Never in the history of the world have so many people been out there trying to get your money. Get more information than I did before you throw yours out the window, especially if you are past fifty.

Dr. Klatz did an excellent job outlining the history and benefits of HGH role in age reversal. About a month ago I tried a high quality source of secretegogues. Secretagogue is a supplement that increases the production of HGH naturally. My results have been amazing...Within 3 weeks I lost fat, eliminated menopausal fatigue, depression and hot flashes. I am 48 years old and feel 10 years younger. But LET THE BUYER BEWARE - there is alot of junk out there masquerading as HGH precursor. Look for a reliable source of secretegogue in powder form... with no fillers and no animal HGH... A high quality formula is not inexpensive - but in my opinion it's priceless.

The book needs a revision - generally good, it is too much

on the pro-side and doesn't warn sufficiently against

taking too much and the possible cancer issues of too much

and why the natural turndown of GH by the body itself during

aging is an anti-cancer approach to permitting longer life

by preventing GH-caused cancer.

Nor does it adequately describe why it is important to

stay within range if you are low but not to supplement

beyond if you are normal or high.

Also, it is out-of-date with respect to suppliers as very

inexpensive injectable recombinant GH is now available from

major non-U.S. corporations that are as good or better than

U.S.-manufactured GH, for a fraction of the price.

We're all looking for answers and we are all trying to accept the fact that we are aging and losing the vibrant health we once had. This book tells you like it is. Open you mind and become aware that there is no need to age to the degree we once did. This book can be the solution to so many of our health issues. Wrinkles, lack of enery, libido, colds, allergies. I've used growth hormone for 8 months and have not had one cold or sinus attack. Have lost all cellulite, toned up my muscles and lost body fat. I'll never stop taking it. I'm 50 years old and before starting GH was about ready to give up. I've got a new life and I plan to feel and look good for many years to come.

..where are the results in real people? Not the 'real people' who rave about products in various venues, but people that you/I meet in real life. I'm involved with alternative medicine, and whenever I see anyone,(known to me or not), who appears to have improved physically,I try to find out how and why.My informal survey, which adds up to thousands of people in the last few years since this book has been out, comes up with a big fat -zero- for HGH and it's precursors,in any form except for injectable HGH itself. A little research of the good doctor reveals business affiliations with at least some of the companies whose products he recommends. I consider this book a catalog.(As for the latest craze, 'homeopatic hgh', please realize what homeopathic formulas actually are:_incredibly_ weak dilutions. That's why it's legal. If you ascribe to the homeopatic philosophy,fine, but I find that most people don't know what they're getting into:The theoretically perfect homeopathic dilution would have _none-of the original ingrediant left in it, just the 'energy pattern' formed from it's having once been there. Like I said, if you go for that, fine, but be forewarned.)

Format: Paperback
Whenever a new miracle wonder drug hits the market, the result is usally a wave of books written by pseudo-experts or health care professionals with a financial axe to grind. It is rare to find an objective and understandable text for the layman that outlines this new wonder drug's plusses and minuses. In the case of GROW YOUNG WITH HGH, Dr. Ronald Klatz has written a text that falls somewhere between the two. Much of Dr. Klatz's opinion is based on results that were obtained by the painful and expensive method of injecting HGH directly into the bloodstream. Those who had the tolerance for discomfort and high cost usually obtained impressive gains. No small wonder here, since the HGH injected was far more potent than what is available on the internet without prescription. Further, these recipients received their doses under a doctor's care. The problem with non-prescription HGH is that it is nowhere as potent as that delivered via injection. Additionally, the fact that those who buy HGH on the internet are not particularly well-versed on exactly what they are ingesting. In defense of Dr.Klatz, he makes these very points, even if in so doing, he still manages to disguise this warning under a heavy blanket of hype and blurb.
Those, like myself, who have read his book, need to do more than read it before purchasing HGH. Additional research is needed. In my case, I discovered that HGH is truly not a means to turn back the hands of time. Frequent visits to the doctor, a sensible diet, moderate exercise, and a non-stressful attitude toward life will accomplish much of what HGH promoters promise. HGH ought to be seen as merely one step on the spectrum to wellness.
