What Makes Ultra Prime™ Secretagogue HGH Enhancer Unique?
Ultra Prime represents the next generation of HGH-producing products that is far more advanced, concentrated and cost-effective than previous formulations. It uses a special blend of nutritional ingredients that will naturally increase the production and release of HGH by the pituitary gland. The very latest anti-aging neuroendocrine research reveals that hormone production is integral in maintaining optimal health. Market America is leading the anti-aging fight by developing a system of advanced nutraceuticals with scientifically based formulations.*
HGH, or human growth hormone, is the master hormone that drives the growth and development of the body. It causes the liver to produce powerful insulin-like growth factors (IGF), which contribute to the maintenance of lean body mass and the health of the body's vital organs.
Research has proven that HGH-secreting cells of the pituitary gland do not die; they maintain their ability to make significant amounts of natural growth hormone. As part of the aging process, less HGH circulates through the body, because the pituitary gland is not stimulating its production. A secretagogue enhancer stimulates the pituitary to naturally produce and secrete HGH, raising the level of this valuable hormone within the body. Ultra Prime serves as a trigger to safely and naturally stimulate the pituitary gland.*
The scientifically-based formulation in Ultra Prime Secretagogue HGH Enhancer features potent amino acids and nutrients that are combined in a precise peptide formulation with other biologically active nutrients. When taken as directed, these ingredients work synergistically as a powerful secretagogue to effectively raise HGH levels. Powerful amino acids such as L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Lysine, Glycine and Colosotrum, which have been shown to increase HGH levels, and nutrients from Prime Factor, are combined in a precise peptide formulation with other biologically active proteins to effectively raise HGH levels.*
Ultra Prime Secretagogue HGH Enhancer is a natural secretagogue that works as an HGH releaser, raising HGH levels in an entirely physiological manner. It gently stimulates the endocrine system to produce and release its own HGH naturally. It works with the body and not against it. The ingredients work synergistically to maximize the effectiveness of the potent amino acids and active nutrients. You can now give your body a firm push in the right direction so it can help itself.*
Ultra Prime Secretagogue HGH Enhancer is not only superior to similar products in the marketplace; it is in a class by itself. The specific amino acids and other natural ingredients are the result of years of study and research. The ingredients in Ultra Prime Secretagogue HGH Enhancer have been scientifically proven to raise HGH levels in the body. The amounts of these ingredients have been carefully selected to provide you with the most powerful and natural HGH Secretagogue formulation on the market today.*

L-Arginine Aspartate: 2.5 g, L-Arginine: 3 gL-arginine is an amino acid found in many foods such as dairy products, meat, poultry, fish, nuts and chocolate. It supports several processes in the body, including cell division, normal healing and immune function, and the secretion of important hormones in the body. L-arginine ultimately contributes to the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH) and prolactin via stimulating the pituitary gland and pancreatic release of glucagon and insulin. L-arginine also promotes the normal production of nitric oxide (NO), a substance that helps blood vessels remain relaxed (termed vasodilation). L-arginine supplements may prove to be a good way to maintain healthy circulation to the heart and other blood vessels. These effects have been exhibited in various double-blind, placebo-controlled studies.
Glycine: 4 g Glycine is the simplest amino acid used to make proteins. It works hand in hand with L-glutamine, another amino acid playing supporting brain function. Glycine has shown some positive implications in regard to supporting mental function. Another study hypothesizes that glycine may enhance memory and mental function. Glycine alone — and in combination with other amino acids — has shown to support normal healing.*
Proprietary Blend: L-Glutamine, Colostrum, L-Lysine (as L-Lysine HCL), Taurine, DNA/RNA (from brewer’s yeast) L-Glutamine is an amino acid derived from another amino acid, glutamic acid. L-helps maintain the health of the immune system, digestive tract and muscle cells. It acts as fuel for the cells that line the intestines. Heavy exercise, infection, surgery and trauma can decrease the body's glutamine reserves, especially in muscle cells.
Colostrum is the clear/cloudy pre-milk that female mammals secrete prior to producing milk. Colostrum for dietary supplements is usually derived from cows and contains lactoferrin, lactoperoxidase, lysozyme, lactalbumin, glycoproteins, cytokines, polypeptides, growth factors, and vitamins and minerals. Colostrum is claimed to help support the immune system, healthy bowel movements, support the gastrointestinal tract, and improve exercise performance and recovery.
L-Lysine is a protein amino acid, classified as an essential amino acid, which means that it must be obtained through the diet. Some proteins, such as those found in meat, poultry and milk, are rich in L-lysine. Wheat germ is rich in L-lysine. Small amounts of free L-lysine are found in vegetables, vegetable juices, and in fermented foods like miso and yogurt. In the liver, L-lysine and other amino acids support protein production. It may promote the normal formation of D-glucose and glycogen, as well as lipids. It may also help to produce energy.
Taurine is a nonprotein amino acid and found in high amounts in the brain, retina, myocardium, skeletal and smooth muscle, platelets and neutrophils. It is plentiful in the fluids of muscle, lungs and nerve tissue. Dietary taurine mainly comes from animal food sources. Taurine is also present in plant food sources, as well as seaweeds in smaller amounts. It is classified as an essential amino acid, and it supports normal micelle formation and fat absorption. It’s important in the hydration of the body and gives an energy boost by stimulating the cells’ nutrient uptake, as well as promoting physical reaction time. Further, it boosts mental alertness and enhances the ability to concentrate. Taurine also has antioxidant activities and supports stable membranes. It helps maintain healthy cholesterol and blood pressure. It may also help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system while delivering detoxifying activities.
DNA/RNA is the genetic material that we all have stored in our bodies at most cellular levels, governing a variety of body processes. DNA, which makes up the genetic material, is made up of units called nucleotides. Some recent research shows that the body may not always produce adequate amounts of its own DNA and RNA. There are certain conditions in which the body requires dietary nucleic acids and or nucleotides to meet its physiological needs. These conditions include rapid growth, limited food supply and metabolic stress. Under these conditions, metabolic demand exceeds the capacity of de novo synthesis. Under these conditions, dietary nucleosides, nucleotides and nucleic acids become essential nutrients. Dietary nucleotides may spare the energetic cost of de novo synthesis of nucleotides. Dietary nucleic acids are found in plant and animal foods. DNA/RNA supplementation may support the immune system and promote normal tissue-regeneration.
Folate (as Folic Acid): 150 mcg Folic acid is mainly found in fruits and vegetables. Dark, leafy greens, oranges and orange juice, beans and peas are the best sources, as well as Brewer’s yeast, which supplies additional B-vitamins.
Folic acid plays a key role by boosting the benefits of B12 supplementation. These two B-vitamins work together in maintaining normal red blood cells. Folic acid supports the normal utilization of amino acids and proteins, as well as promotes the normal construction of the material for DNA and RNA synthesis. Scientific studies have found that when working in tandem with folic acid, B12 is capable of promoting normal homocysteine levels. This works toward supporting a healthy nervous system.*
Magnesium (as magnesium citrate): 150 mg Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green, leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium. The average daily magnesium intake in the U.S. for males nine years and older is estimated to be about 323 milligrams; for females nine years and older, it is estimated to be around 228 milligrams.
Magnesium is a component of the mineralized part of bone and is necessary for the metabolism of potassium and calcium in adults. It helps maintain normal levels of potassium, phosphorus, calcium, adrenaline and insulin. It also promotes the normal mobilization of calcium, transporting it inside the cell for further utilization, thus making it helpful in maintaining bone health. It promotes the normal functioning of muscle and nervous tissue. Magnesium supports the normal synthesis of all proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, cyclic adenosine monophosphate, lipids and carbohydrates. This mineral also promotes kidney and bladder health.
Magnesium promotes normal energy release, regulation of the body temperature, and proper nerve function, helping the body handle stress and regulating metabolism. Magnesium works with calcium to support the regulation of the heart and blood pressure. Importantly, magnesium promotes the building of healthy bones and teeth, and proper muscle development. If taken in relatively high amounts, it works with calcium and vitamin D to help keep bones strong.
What will Ultra Prime™ Secretagogue HGH Enhancer do for me?Ultra Prime™ Secretagogue HGH Enhancer helps build muscle and increase secretion of human growth hormone (HGH), which governs the body’s growth, aging and health maintenance. HGH helps influence the growth of cells that naturally decline as you age.*
Are there any conditions where I cannot take Prime products?As noted on the product warning, if you currently have any cancerous condition, had a reoccurrence of a malignancy or have any benign tumors, we are recommending that you do not take Prime.
If you have a history of any cancer or tumorous growths and you are more than five years in complete remission, we are suggesting that you check with your personal physician before taking this product and monitor the condition closely for any recurrence.
People with severe liver or kidney disease, uncontrolled diabetes, or those who are pregnant, should not take this product.
If you are suffering from any other complex medical condition or endocrinological disorder, you should discuss taking Prime with your physician first.
If your liver function tests are above the normal limits, you should consult with your private physician before taking this product.
Prime products are natural. We are not providing specific medical advice for any condition.
If you have specific questions regarding a particular medical condition you may have and the use of this product, please take the Prime educational literature to your private physician and discuss those issues in detail.
Can I take Prime if I have diseases of the thyroid? If you are under the care of a physician for any medical condition, you should consult your physician before taking any dietary supplement.
Can I take Prime if I am on hormonal replacement therapy? If you are under the care of a physician for any medical condition, you should consult your physician before taking any dietary supplement.
Can I have my serum growth hormone levels done by my doctor to see if Prime is working? The best way to see if Prime is working for you is to give the product a three-month test trial and see how you feel. If you are seeing positive changes in the way you feel, continue taking the product.
Several Prime users have had their human growth hormone levels measured incorrectly. The measuring of growth hormone is very complex. Many labs use different techniques to measure HGH and due to lack of standardization, some of them may not be valid. Serum HGH must be measured while fasting in the early morning without any carbohydrates taken within three hours of the blood being drawn. It must be handled and processed correctly and is a very costly test. HGH surges in the blood stream throughout the day. It enters and leaves the blood stream quickly. Blood tests may miss that surge and show a low level.
If you decide to get your blood tested, it is important to measure Insulin-like Growth Factor type I levels to see if they are being increased. Remember that Human Growth Hormone stimulates the synthesis and release of Insulin-like Growth Factors of which IGF-I is the most abundant.
Most importantly, if you wish to have your blood tests done, you must first get baseline blood levels of HGH and IGF-I while off of Prime. You should stop the product for at least two weeks and then start Prime after your baseline blood tests have been done. After staying on Prime consistently for one to three months, you should get your blood test done in one to two hours after Prime ingestion.
Measuring HGH and IGF-I levels at different intervals while on Prime will serve no purpose. What you want to see is an increase in HGH and IGF-I levels in your blood while on Prime compared to while off Prime.
How is Human Growth Factor different from HGH secretagogues? HGH secretagogues function as combination HGH stimulant and releasing compounds. These generally contain a combination of amino acids and peptides designed to enhance the pituitary gland’s ability to release HGH. Human Growth Factors are soluble proteins, vitamins and botanicals that act as humoral regulators, which modulate the functional activities of individual cells and tissues throughout the body.
