GHB effects on growth hormone

Posted by in Doctor X files, Other drug question

 

What in your opinion is the medical status of GHB use for recreation and for Human Growth Hormone increases/releases? (This could be anything from positive/negative/neutral)
Speaking directly about the powder variety which is dissolved into a liquid like juice or water.

 

 

There is some evidence that GHB increases the release of GH (Growth Hormone).

But these studies are done in experimental conditions, and only give a few doses of GHB. It is not clear if this effect is sustained in time or not, and what should be the dosage to achieve a noticeable physical effects. In fact long term administration studies have failed in demonstrate an effect related to this theoretical GH release, at least in some populations: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10530806 So the significance of this increase in GH release is unclear to the moment…
