Q. Do GH-releasing supplements like SomatoMed have anabolic properties?
A. GH releasers would manifest some anabolic properties through enhanced muscle protein synthesis and reduced muscle protein catabolism, both of which would enhance muscle anabolism.

Q. Why should SOMATOMEDTM be taken on an empty stomach?
A. GH is released more reliably under conditions of low blood glucose and a low content of circulating free fatty acids in the blood. This means that such amino acid supplements work best if taken on an empty stomach.

Q. Why is it suggested to take SOMATOMEDTM at bedtime?
A. Taking amino acids or GH-releasers at such time is suggested as a way to augment the natural peak release of GH, which occurs during the initial ninety minutes of sleep.

Q. What is meant by a "growth hormone-releasing Secretagogue?"
A. Any natural peptide or amino acid chain, which augments both the amount of, and release of, existing GH in the brain's pituitary gland.

Q. What is the suggested dosage of SOMATOMEDTM
A. The schedule for SOMATOMEDTM calls for taking the supplement three tablets at a time, at bedtime, for five consecutive days, followed by a two-day break. The cycle is then repeated. After three consecutive months, it is recommended that one take two to four weeks off.

Q. Why is Insulin Like Growth Factor-1 measured in the plasma instead of GH?
A. IGF-1 levels are measured due to the ephemeral blood levels of GH. While GH is broken down in the liver about an hour after being released into the blood, IGF-1 levels (which are directly stimulated by GH) last for up to 18 hours.

Q. What makes SOMATOMEDTM superior to other technologies?br> A. The addition of more hypothalamic peptides, liver support, adrenal support and significant amounts of adaptagenic herbs make SOMATOMEDTM the state-of-the-art Secretagogue in today's medical marketplace. Additionally, two delivery systems optimize the delivery and absorption of these fragile constituents, first into the stomach, then past the intestinal wall for saturation of the targeted receptor sites by the amino acids and peptides.

Q. What are possible contraindications indicated by SOMATOMEDTM consumption?
A. There are no known medical contraindications. To receive maximum utilization and absorption, it is however, important to take the product on an empty stomach.

Q. May I take other supplements at the same time as SOMATOMEDTM?
A. The important issue is to not jeopardize maximize saturation of the intended receptor sites, so taking the product alone would be optimal. Any supplement that increases testosterone levels would be compatible with simultaneous ingestion. Supplements that increase insulin levels will interfere with the intended results of SOMATOMEDTM . Separate consumption of those supplements and SOMATOMEDTM by at least four hours.

Q. What patient profiles could expect to benefit from SOMATOMEDTM usage?
A. Cognitive function, muscle wasting, lean muscle conversion, bone density, Auto-immune issues, sleep problems, pre and post menopausal, sports performance and recovery, as well as body fat loss, all seem to be profiles which benefit from the SOMATOMEDTM> Secretagogue.

Q. Why might SOMATOMEDTM represent a superior alternative to synthetic growth hormone injection therapy?
A. SOMATOMEDTM stimulates the body's own physiology i.e. releasing our own growth hormone levels versus injections, which utilize synthesized growth hormone. SOMATOMEDTM enhances the existing pulsatile secretions of GH, while injections attempt to take the place of natural, pulsatile secretions. As regards the conversion of GH to IGF-1 metabolized in the liver: SOMATOMEDTM> addresses this conversion with substantive liver support constituents. Injections do not address this needed protective step. Patients find it difficult to be compliant and inject themselves daily. SOMATOMEDTM is delivered in a convenient caplet form. Finally, SOMATOMEDTM costs the physician and patient one-tenth the cost of synthetic GH injections.
