  • Aids muscle and protein metabolism and contributes to the repair of skin, bones, tendons, and connective tissue.
  • Promotes healthy liver function and helps boost protein production.
  • Stimulates healthy brain function.

Product Information

People not only produce less human growth hormone (HGH) as they age, but they also fail to adequately release what is available in the pituitary gland, hence available HGH decreases in our tissues. HGH stimulators are considered to mimic the way a young body secreted HGH in the past, thus providing a much less expensive and more natural way to counter aging than artificial replacements.*

Twenty amino acids form the building blocks of all proteins and, as such, are needed for the body to make the proteins of enzymes, many hormones, muscle, bone, skin, organs, etc. 

Research widely supports the combination of, at a minimum, arginine, lysine, ornithine, and glutamine.

Arginine is an essential amino acid, meaning that the body cannot create arginine on its own, but must get it from dietary sources. Arginine appears to stimulate growth hormone release through secretion of the growth hormone inhibitor somatostatin. Arginine is found in high concentrations in skin and connective tissue and contributes to the repair of skin, bones, tendons, etc. It is vital to muscle metabolism and helps boost muscle mass while burning fat. Any type of stress, including exercise or trauma, increases our need for arginine.

GABA is an amino acid which serves as a neurotransmitter and plays a vital role in brain function, as well as calming the nervous system (it is considered a natural tranquilizer). GABA, or gamma-aminobutyric acid, is considered a significant stimulator of HGH release from the pituitary gland, because it breaks down into a metabolite called GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate). Clinical studies have proven GHB's ability to increase plasma levels of growth hormone and another substance called prolactin. GHB also is associated with the release of prolactin and cortisol during sleep, which contributes to enhanced protein metabolism in the liver and promotes the release of fatty acids from fat cells.  GHB's activity is connected to rapid eye movement (REM sleep) and has also been linked to further increasing the release of growth hormone.

Lysine is another essential amino acid, which affects bone formation, height, and genital function.  In the liver, lysine, along with other amino acids, supports protein biosynthesis and can help produce energy. It is also considered an arginine booster. Lysine may also facilitate the absorption of calcium from the small intestine.  

Ornithine is a nonessential amino acid, which means the body can synthesize it from food sources. Ornithine supports liver function and helps boost protein production that replenishes skin and connective tissue cells.  It is a powerful contributor to cell replacement. Ornithine is similar in structure to arginine and is considered by some to double the effectiveness of arginine.

Glutamine is the most plentiful free amino acid found in muscle tissue and is particularly required during times of stress on the body. Glutamine is converted to glutamic acid in the brain, and helps fuel brain function by increasing the amount of GABA, which supports neural activities. Found concentrated in muscle tissue, glutamine plays a vital role in creating muscle protein on demand. For older people, glutamine helps maintain muscle health throughout the aging process. Because it is considered a primary source of energy for rapidly dividing cells, it supports the actions of the body's own growth hormone by helping restore muscle mass. Additionally, the immune system and the gut practically live on glutamine!

Glycine is a nonessential amino acid that is considered one of the stimulatory agents inducing the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone. Glycine has been found to be useful in increasing output during exercise workouts as well.

*Genuine HGH can only be provided through a physician's prescription injections, so no over-the-counter product is genuine HGH. Physician prescriptions are very costly, often thousands of dollars per year. Oral drug forms, incidentally, are not particularly effective given HGH is broken down during the process of digestion and thus loses its effectiveness. Using HGH therapeutically, finally, is still considered somewhat risky. Many prefer to stick with nutritional supplements to avoid reported side effects and long-term risks.


  • Arginine and ornithine should not be taken by pregnant or lactating women, or people suffering from schizophrenia.
  • Glutamine should not be taken by anyone with kidney disease, liver disease, or Reye's syndrome.
  • GABA is considered non-toxic, but may cause a totally harmless face flushing or tingling effect.

    Hormones and amino acids
    We ordered it because my wife has been doing a lot of research lately into bio-identical hormones, and she has seen talk of the amino acids that are in the HGH/Amino Enhancer used to help people''''s natural HGH levels increase.We get pretty much all of our supplements from OurHealthCo-op, and when I saw the HGH/Amino Enhancer, I grabbed it, because I knew we wouldn''''t find it anywhere else for less. And, because I don''''t question the quality of what we get from Guido. He''''s the man. ;-)We both do applied kinesiology (aka muscle-testing) for whatever we ingest

    Amino Enhancer back in stock, yeah
    I started using HGH Enhancer some years ago, because of what I had read about human growth hormone and about how it''''''''s increasingly not produced in bodies as they age. I''''''''m a vegetarian and eat healthily, but I figured it wouldn''''''''t hurt to take these amino acids as a boost. I justput in a new order to the Co-op today, and it includes this product under its new name. Glad to have it back! As usual, thank you very much for all you do.

    Hot Flashes
    My wife had been having severe hot flashes, the kind that occur several times in the night and leave the sheets soaked with sweat by morning. She is taking several things for this (including your Menopause Formula) but they offer little relief. After taking the Amino Enhancer before bedtime in just three days she noticed a dramatic decrease in both the frequency and intensity of her hot flashes. She is sleeping much better at night now. Thank you!
