With MHP Secretagogue-One, the acidic stomach acids are buffered so they do not destroy the amino acids. This allows them to be absorbed into your bloodstream with extra (90%) efficiency. Then the amino acids are carried to the pituitary hypothalamus axis.
At the pituitary hypothalamus axis, the amino acids cause the pituitary to release the extra growth hormones. They do this by acting as Secretagogues, which is why the name of this supplement is Secretagogue-One.
In the pituitary, the growth hormone is released to the liver where it turns into IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factors).
The biochemists and researchers at MHP developed Secretagogue-One for its amino acid blend and Secretagogue activity. With Secretagogue-One, not only is IGF-1 produced, but also HGFs (Human Growth Factors).
