Not sure yet. I take so many supplements, I can't really say if this is doing me any good. I will try another bottle and maybe can make a better judgment then. I haven't had any negative effects, so I will see. April 15, 2014
Create an upward spiral! I loved being young and beautiful. I took joy in all of the springy, strong,flexible jumps, twists and turns I could do. I truly enjoyed having a bright mind that could take agile leaps creatively or logically from point to point. I was a fount of ideas and energy that I thought would go on forever. I concede to time that we must surrender but if I can bargain, even a little, I will, and I believe I should. It sounds like keeping our telemores from getting tattered is foundational to this endeavor. This quest is kind of complex but part of it includes increasing our bodies production of HGH. I am currently using my third bottle of this Swanson's HGH Releaser and will say that my sleep quality improves during use,including more vivid dreams. Sleep is one of the times that our pituitary secretes HGH. When we get a good night's sleep we build more muscle, produce hormones that help us fight fat; we awake feeling more energetic making us more likely to do something else that promotes HGH production-EXERCISE!!! Another benefit of improved sleep quality is feeling more alert and creative. I can't say that I have lost weight due to consuming this product but I do believe this product helps me sleep better putting me on an upward spiral like the one I just described. Life is a lot more fun on the upward spiral!!! December 12, 2013
Superior Product I have been using this product for quite some time. It does work. Give me more energy and stamina. Seems to make my hair grow and keeps my weight under control. I had open heart surgery and asked my doctor if I could keep taking this supplement and he said yes, so that was a very positive statement. The doctor's wife takes a similar supplement, of course, much more expensive, and when I looked at the ingredients in hers, the ones in Swanson supplements were so similar. Again, Swanson shows their competitiveness and quality. December 11, 2013
Great Product Finally my husband and I have found something that really works. I have more energy and feel great. This product really works and I would recommend this to anyone at any age. December 8, 2013
Yes! My friend and I tried this product at the same time to compare notes. We both notice more energy, firmer skin and muscles with a slight slendering of belly and waist. Others noticed it as well. At 43, I look great and feel sexy. Needless to say, we bought more. It's worth it! November 25, 2013
Good supplement to take to increase your HGH... I take this supplement before I exercise on an empty stomach and another supplement before I go to bed to increase my human growth hormone level. The supplement works for me and I feel good taking it. Try it and see if it is for you to. November 13, 2013
to earrly to tell, its my 1st month trying this product. October 17, 2013
Sleeping better than I have in years! I haven't been on this long enough to know how it works for GH releasing, but I'm young enough that it should work (44) so I'm giving it a few months for that. But what I have seen is an enormous improvement in my sleep. I've been doing melatonin and the Peak ATP at night, which both help. But when I added this I started sleeping through the night and sleeping deeply. I love this stuff and the value is incredible. October 13, 2013
So Far So Good I just started taking GHR Essentials last week. I had been doing tons of research on increasing HGH levels the "natural" way. So after looking at tons of ingredients and reading tons of info and feedback, I decided that Swanson had the best products for the best price. I did experience restless sleep for about 4 days. On the 5th day I slept like a baby and have been sleeping better ever since. I also have notices that my mood is more elevated and that I do have more energy. It does have a slightly pungent taste when you swallow it but that doesn't really bother me. September 17, 2013
Age defying! I haven't been using this product very long but I believe my skin is tightening and, based on what others have told me, I look forward to being the recipient of its other BENEFITS! August 31, 2013
Great Product I have been using this product for over a year now. It has helped me with my endurance during workouts. I did notice that a few months after I started taking it that my face and waist thinned out quite a bit. I did not notice that it helped me to sleep better but I take it first thing in the morning before my workout. July 19, 2013
Did not work well for me I was so excited about this product. I bought two bottles-one for me and one for my husband. I took it faithfully for 3 weeks or so and started getting terrible hot flashes. I had started getting them approx 8 months ago then found an herbal supplement that took care of them. This product seemed to interfere with the other supplement. I have stopped taking this and am now back to being as cool as a cucumber. July 14, 2013
I am sleeping better since taking GHR Essesntials July 3, 2013
Couldn't see much difference I'm a 25 year old male and decided to try this out to help with lean muscle. I'm not sure if it's because of my age, but I didn't see much difference while taking these pills. The price is great, so I may try another cycle to see if there is a difference. However, for me, there just wasn't much noticeable difference while using this product. But great reviews on here and great price, so could be a great product for others. June 27, 2013
Good Value Is a great product for the price. I will purchase again and again. June 6, 2013
Excellent Product I have been using this for over a year and it definitely seems to allow me to workout more intensely. I only use it on days when I lift (every other day) about 30 min before workout after not eating for at least 2 hrs. I think it probably gives me a leaner body also. I should probably use daily and would have even better results. Capsules are easy to take also. April 14, 2013
GHR works~~ I've been a loyal customer of Swanson Health Products since 2001 when I purchased my first bottle of GHR essentials..And only till recently when I reordered and You don't have it in stock,have I not used it..A great product for me in staying in good overall heath and it gives me my "Fresh "start of the day..I use it when weight-training and I do see a difference when I'm not using it..PLEASE notify me when it is back in stock..Appreciate it,Joe Werner April 13, 2013
Not for me Wanted to love this..it works for friends. Unfortunately I had a bad skin reaction which disappeared when I stopped taking the supplement and returned when I tried again. March 6, 2013
Just what I needed! Getting older left me with less energy then I was used to have. Then I found this Growth Hormone Releaser. Taking this for about a week I felt more energized and knew that it was really working. I keep on using it and feel like my 'old' self again.Thanks. February 21, 2013
great value I bought a similar product from another company and it cost 3 times as much. This works just as well and I save money. February 10, 2013
supplement seems to have helped my wieght stabalize. i was actually to thin. in the past months my wieght has returned to normal. January 24, 2013
Verdict is still out I am not sure if this works or not. I need more time to evaluate it. Once I know one way or the other I will report back. Great ingredients! January 5, 2013
GHR I am 75, I have been taking GHR since I found it available at Swansons. It produces excellent results. I am not trying to bulk up grotesque like you see in the muscle mags. I am however,able to maintain good muscle and skin tone and look 20 years younger. The price is great especially when you catch a two for one sale. Thanks Swamsons....I'LL BE..BACK December 29, 2012
Great Product! Heard about all the buzz in Hollywood with regards to HGH. Of course, many of these people were stars, and therefore had a larger budget to work with than myself. But thanks to Swanson, I can afford the HGH releaser and so far... I love the results I'm getting and seeing! It certainly helps with wieght loss and metabolism. I am 50 years young and I wouldn't be caught without these once I tried them. As for the weght goes, I take it in conjunction with Relora, L-Carnitine (another got2 have product!), African Mango and Raspberry ketones. I take some other supplements, as well. But these are my go2 guys for obtaining and maintaining my weight! December 4, 2012
