DR Oz and HGH

The HGH part of this article is of interest to me as muscle mass preservation is important to my physically active lifestyle.

Posting a naked link like that is frowned upon here. Is there a point you want to make?

Anyone who even listens to Dr. Oz should be given some leeway... at least, until they wakeup.

Sorry, I didn't want to copy the entire article.

Given the number of complaints, I will refrain from such efforts.

Well, don't be too upset. This was nothing compared to the responses I received to my first like post... it was brutal.

No need to refrain from posting links--but people are unlikely to visit a link if they don't know what it is about and why it piqued your interest. This is one of the reasons the community rules include:

I did click on your link above, and it is about four amino acids that may foster HGH production by one's own body. I'm refraining from mentioning Lance Armstrong. Oh wait. .

I guess I am still figuring out what kind of content is appropriate. I am 50 and am struggling with some issues related to being 50 and being as active as I was when I was 30 or even 40.

I have just started taking testosterone injections and generally like the results. But I hate being dependent on a chemical. I am interested in sharing my journey, but this may not be the place.

The HGH article is of interest to me as muscle mass preservation is important to my physically active lifestyle.

Oh, this is definitely the place for you. Just hang in there and you will find there are more knowledgeable people (and some extremely so) here on a very broad range of subjects as you will find anywhere. You will, further, find that (for the most part) they will all have your best interests in mind -- and/or they will be actively searching and struggling for answers same as you. Either way, they we are your peers.

If you'd posted this when you posted the link, you would have likely gotten the discussion you're looking for. There are several health-related threads going about low carbs, work outs, etc., and I imagine some of those posters would be interested in your progress.

No I haven't. That's for old people

But I do take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral. I also take 4000IU vitamin D daily.

The orginal Geritol looks like more fun... that's when the tonic contained 12% alcohol.

The multi-vitamin is good.

That is a lot of Vitamin D though... unless you live in a cave. And even if, Vitamin D still needs direct sunlight to activate in the body. I don't have evidence at my fingertips but I seem to recall that bad things can happen with excess artificial Vitamin D.

It is not an accidental number. I had my blood tested before taking this amount and had a measurement of 32. I am now at 67... which is where I want to be.

My target range is 60-80.

I will probably go to 5000 daily during the winter as my sun exposure will be minimal during ski season.

Not sure about the activation. Sunlight is required to convert Vitamin A (edit... cholesterol ) into Vitamin D.

Also, the vitamin D I am taking is the D3 variety.

I am curious why you know you blood levels of vitamin D. Do you know other blood levels for other assorted vitamins and substances? How do you pick which ones to test and how often do you need to measure them?

Supercharge Your Body: 5 Ways in 5 Days | The Dr. Oz Show
After following the link, my first impression was SPAM. However, it didn't tell me to buy this or that 'here'. Not sure what is being recommended.

I'm assuming, of course, that if I ask my MD for HGH, I'll get laughed at (as I think I should).

So, you want it, how do you get it?

Vitamin A cannot be converted into vitamin D.

My bad. Cholosterol is the precursor to Vitamin D.

Since sunlight is required to turn cholesterol into vitamin D, avoiding the sun will likewise undermine our ability to synthesize vitamin D.

Vitamin D is Synthesized From Cholesterol and Found in Cholesterol-Rich Foods

The point is Vitamin D is made from the sun. Once it is made, it does not require further activation.
