The short answer is: NO!. Here’s an explanation of where this fear comes from.
GenF20 Plus® is what’s known as an “HGH releaser,” which means it encourages your body to produce more of its own HGH rather than injecting a foreign source of HGH into your body.
Because your body is naturally producing its own HGH, it absolutely cannot cause Mad Cow Disease. It’s arguable the safest way to increase your HGH levels.
That said, between 1958 and 1985, thousands of growth-hormone-deficient children were treated with injections of HGH taken from the brains of cadavers shipped out of Africa. Unfortunately, the pasteurization technique used to make the hormone safe turned out to be ineffective.
As a result, an abnormally high number of the children they treated developed Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, also known as “Mad Cow Disease.” When this discovery was made, treatment with HGH injections taken from human cadavers stopped.
Then, in the mid-80s, a drug company based in Indianapolis came up with a way to create synthetic HGH that was 100% identical to the 191-amino-acid growth hormone naturally produced by the body.
It’s this synthetic HGH, also known as somatropin, that’s now given via injections by medical professionals to successfully treat dwarfism in children. This is the same synthetic HGH that’s also used to combat aging.
It’s only available by prescription, and treatment with injections typically costs $10,000 to $30,000+ per year.
But again, GenF20 Plus® is an “HGH releaser.” It encourages your body to naturally produce more of your own HGH. And, it involves no costly injections.
