Whether or not you agree with Ms. Daines about the ethics, it's clear that GF9 is being seen by many as a way to boost their hGH levels without the fear of being sanctioned for illegal rhGH use. In fact, a December 12, 2012 Congressional hearing regarding the NFL and hGH testing led to a discussion about this very thing. Dr. Larry Bowers , Chief Science Officer for the United States Anti-Doping Agency who testified at the hearing, explained that while "The body produces many forms of growth hormone in the pituitary gland," synthetic rhGH injections involve only one form, called 22kD. hGH tests work by flagging people who have abnormally high ratios of 22kD.
That's what makes Growth Factor-9 so different from banned synthetic rhGH injections. Rather than introducing a synthetic form of hGH into the body, Growth Factor-9 is a dietary supplement that raises human growth hormone levels by encouraging pituitary performance. This means there are no abnormally high levels of 22kD, because the increase in hGH comes from the body's natural source... the pituitary gland.
No matter which side of the GF9/professional athletics controversy you're on, one thing is certain: Growth Factor-9 is selling like hot cakes. GNC, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Lucky Vitamin, GF9's exclusive distributors, are having trouble keeping the growth hormone booster in stock. Still, some
