Shaquille O’Neal puts in the work to stay in shape years after retiring from the NBA. What many might not know is the inside look into his daily supplement routine. High on the list comes Novex Biotech’s GF-9, a growth-hormone booster that may lead to looking and feeling better on the daily.

GF-9 may inhibit somatostatin which is a growth hormone inhibitor. The supplement also combines lysine, arginine, glutamine, oxo-proline, cysteine, and schizonepeta which may stimulate your body’s pituitary gland into producing more HGH which potentially can cause greater muscle mass, lower body fat, high bone density, more energy, and better organ functioning. 

There’s a lot of misinformation regarding Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is made in your pituitary gland and is mainly responsible for childhood development. After puberty, your HGH levels can start to decline exponentially with age. The average male can lose around 14% every decade [1]. 

Adults with low HGH tend to have lower muscle mass, more body fat, lower metabolic function, and less healthy organs. Novex Biotech’s GF-9 has been designed and backed by scientific research to help increase your body’s natural growth hormone levels.  

Lysine is an amino acid that is not produced by the human body. Several scientific studies have shown increases in HGH as well as overall muscular strength. Arginine is an amino acid that increases HGH as well as muscle growth through vasodilation. One study has shown that arginine supplementation increased resting HGH up to 100% and post-exercise HGH between 300-500%. Glutamine is an amino acid that controls energy uptake. Glutamine supplementation coupled with intense exercise has been shown to help protein synthesis for muscular recovery and growth. Oxo-proline is a natural amino acid derivative that may function as a glutamine storage. Cysteine is a semi essential amino acid that helps with oxidative stress by decreasing inflammation [2][3].  Schizonepeta is a medical herb widely found in Asia that has shown some promising effects on the cardiovascular system as well as being an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative agent. This proprietary blend has shown a 682% increase in HGH [4].
