1Genf20 PlusPills + SprayRead reviewThe only HGH supplement that enhances growth hormone production via 7 mechanisms. Contains Deer antler velvet and anti-somatostatin compounds. Based on our research and analysis, we believe that GenF20 Plus has the potential to increase your HGH levels. However, as the studies we read included subjects ranging in age and weight, you have to keep in mind that your results may vary from what the supplement claims on its site and what the research shows. Having said that, if you are in the market for an HGH based anti-aging supplement, we recommend this as the no. 1 supplement in this category because of its high quality ingredients, clinical study done on it, and endorsement from medical community.
2HyperGH 14XPills + SprayFEATURES 15 POTENT HGH PRECURSORS, WITH 4,040 MG TOTAL PER DAY! In our opinion, HyperGH 14x has the highest quality of HGH boosting potential to increase your HGH levels. This is not a here today, gone tomorrow company out to make a fast buck. They’re the real deal, however you have to keep in mind that your results may vary from what the supplement claims on its site and what the research shows. Having said that, if you are in the market for an HGH based bodybuilding supplement or any legal steroid, we recommend this as the no. 1 supplement in this category for bodybuilding because of its high quality ingredients, clinical study done on it, and endorsement from bodybuilding community.
3MHP Secretagogue-Gold HGHPillsPowerful supplement that contains all the different kinds of ingredients for enhancing HGH comprehensively. Don't be concerned by lesser number of reviews on e-commerce websites. This one is the real deal.
4Source Naturals HGH SurgePillsOne of the rare supplements to contain "Huperzine A" that is a potent anti-somatostatin compound. Overall, a very balance mix of amino acids and other ingredients to enhance HGH levels naturally.
5Olympian Labs Dynamic HGHPillsLike Genf20 Plus, it also contains deer antler velvet and dopamine enhancing compounds like Mucuna Pruriens, along with regular amino acids. Good positive reviews on ecommerce sites like and, although the product is relatively new to the market.
6High Energy Labs HGH CompletePillsOne of the most comprehensive ingredient profile, although the product doesn't contain Deer antler velvet. Hgh Complete™ with 7-Keto® & Aminotropin™ is one of the best Hgh and Ifg-1 products available. Like HyperGH 14x, it also acts as a mild Testosterone booster along with HGH enhancer. A scientifically developed precursor and releaser formula that is designed to increase your body's own growth levels naturally, increase energy levels, increase libido, help reverse the effects of aging and increase performance as well as maximize recovery and restoration.
7Ageless Foundation UltraMAX GOLDPillsSufficient quantities of amino acids + GABA, along with anti-somatostatin compound Alpha GPC and Acetyl-L-Carnitine makes it among the top 10 HGH supplements in the market. The product may improve physical performance and well-being, and supports a broad range of health benefits.
8Natures Plus Ultra GHT MalePillsOnce again, a good hgh bodybuilding supplement with solid ingredients profile that also acts as natural testosterone booster. But, it lags behind HyperGH 14x as a HGH booster, as it doesn't contain anti-somatostatin compounds like cholinergic supplements and then some.
9Performix Super male T + HGHPillsAnother HGH cum Testosterone booster, ideal for those into bodybuilding. The product has a diverse ingredient profile, although misses out on some like deer antler velvet. Moreover, the product is more expansive than other products in the same league (almost double priced) and the ingredients seem somewhat underdosed.
10Natures Plus GH MalePillsAnother product from Nature's Plus that focuses primarily on HGH. It has some antioxidants too like resveratrol, and overall seems an excellent anti-aging supplement. We'd have liked it more if it contained GABA.
11Nutraceutics Pro HGH SymbiotropinPillsThe product has a good mix of amino acids, dopamine enhancers and one anti-somatostatin compound Alpha GPC, making it through to the top 10 HGH supplements in the market.
12HGF MAXPillsLike Genf20Plus, this product too contains all sets of ingredients require to enhance HGH via several pathways/mechanisms, although the ingredients seem underdosed for the price. That's why it ranks lower.
13MHP Secretagogue-One HGHPowderAnother good product by MHP that contains sufficient quantities of amino acids and growth factors compounds, although missing on other kinds of HGH boosting ingredients.
14Pure Solutions Pure Factors Extreme Pro IGF 350DropsPro IGF 350 contains various different growth factors(variants of IGF-1) and claims to be specifically designed for those looking for the competitive edge against the competition. The growth factors in Pro IGF 350 provide performance enhancement benefits to any type of level of athlete. The product has good reviews but we little skeptical because it is basically based on single-line of ingredients ie. growth factors. A good product must have diverse ingredients to influence HGH production via multiple mechanisms.

All growth factors found in Pro IGF 350 are 100% naturally derived. There are no illegal or synthetic compounds found in this performance enhancer.
15Pure Solutions Pure IGFDropsPure IGF™ is basically a single-ingredient supplement ie. deer antler velvet extract that claims to combat aging at the cellular level. Growth Factors in Pure IGF are derived from the naturally balanced proteins found in Velvet Antler Extract. It misses out on all other kinds of ingredients required to work in synergy with the growth factors.
16Nature's Youth HGH (RSF Amino Acid Booster)PowderThe product only has amino acids including GABA that helps with deep sleep and cooling/warming mechanism to enhance HGH levels. Overall, a mediocre HGH supplement.
19HGH Pill 30,000 Nanos by HGH.comPillsPurity Select HGH 30000 nano pill has good variety of ingredients, but amino acids seem under-dosed. Their HGF MAX seems a better product.
20HGH Activator by Dee Cee LaboratoriesPillsA good HGH product based on amino acids and a choline supplement. Amino acids are dosed sufficiently.
21Optim Metabolic hgh 8xPillsGood dosing of amino acids & GABA, but lacks other crucial ingredients like choline supplements or dopamine enhancers etc.
22Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals SomatomaxPillsGood dosing of amino acids, GABA, & Mucuna pruriens extract, but doesn't contain anti-somatostatin compounds like choline supplements.
23Basic Research Growth Factor-9 Complex Hormone AntecedentPillsThe bodybuilding/sports performance HGH supplement based on good ingredients. Overall, not a great hgh booster for muscles.
24Thrive hGHPillsThrive-hGH has a good patented formula. The retail price seems to be little on the higher side as compared to the other products unless you sign up for an autoship program.
25Maximum International Max HGHPillsA potent HGH precursor with lots of amino acids and growth factors containing compounds and also has GABA. But, other kinds of ingredients are missing.
26Youngevity HGH youth complexPillsBasically an amino-acids HGH supplement, but the ingredients seem under-dosed.
27Vitamass HGHPillsA very simple combination of amino acids and GABA. Unfortunately, ingredients are under-dosed for the price.
28Vigor Labs RAW HGHPillsA simple combination of dopamine enhancers, antioxidants and GABA, with no amino acids in the picture.
29AI SPORTS NUTRITION HGH proPillsA combination of Alpha GPC and GABA and with antioxidants. It works as a great sleep aid, but lacks in other important ingredients, although it also contains Shilajit extract, which is good for sexual health.
30Growth Factor Plus by HGH.comPillsAnother supplement from that is targeted towards younger people looking for height increase via enhancing HGH. Ingredients seem underdosed for anti-aging purpose but might be good enough for it's target market.
31HGH Complex by VitabasePillsA simple combination of underdosed amino acids and growth factors containing colostrum.
32Somatropinne HgHPillsSomatropinne HGH Just one amino acids, one dopamine enhancer and other potent sexual enhancement ingredients like Maca and Horny goat weed. It might be good as a sexual enhancer, not much as HGH enhancer.
33Soma HGH 30000 nano spraySprayProbably the most popular HGH spray out there that has all the crucial ingredients required for HGH release. Soma Spray combines the six most potent Growth Factors, and 8 proven amino acid releasers all into one oral spray! Unfortunately, there is a lot of controversy regarding the functioning of "hgh sprays" and "homeopathic HGH", for example the dilution process. Due to these factors, we have to rank it much lower than what its popularity demands.
34Crazy Bulk HGH X-2PillsVery underdosed ingredients- and besides it contains just one amino acid and one dopamine enhancer.
35Always Young Renewal HGH Workout For MenSprayIt contains real homeopathic HGH, IGF-1, Testosterone, growth factors along with amino acids and NADH. So, ideally this HGH spray should be ranking much higher on our list, but it's NOT - the ingredients are highly diluted because of the way homeopathic products are designed and there is lot of controversy over functioning of homeopathic HGH.
36DaVinci Labs Cocoa HGHPowderAmino acids supplement with cocoa flavor but way overpriced.
37GHR1000PillsA simple amino acids supplement with GABA and colostrum, that is way overpriced and the ingredients are underdosed too.
38LA Nutrition Pro GHRPillsAnother simple amino acids supplement WITHOUT GABA but WITH colostrum, and the ingredients are underdosed.
39Beverly International GH FactorPillsAnother amino acids supplement with only two amino acids but in good enough quantities.
40Elemental Nutrition HGHPowderThis so called HGH supplement has only two amino acids - L Arginine and L-Lysine and is way overpriced. The dosing of amino acids is good though, so it seems to be more of a protein supplement.
41Goliath Labs Humoloid HGH SpraySprayThis hgh spray contains Humoloid Liquid proprietary blend of 100,000 ng that have almost all ingredients required for HGH boosting via multiple mechanisms and some for Testosterone boosting. But, since this is a homeopathic hgh spray with relatively lesser number of user reviews, we can't recommend it much higher.
42Always Young Renewal Hgh SpraySprayReal homeopathic HGH based spray with growth factors from Pituitaria Glandula & Colostrum.
43TimeFIGHTERS® HGH Anti-Aging Drink MixPowderAn underdosed amino acids supplement with GABA that is marketed as an anti-aging supplement.
44HGH Vitality from Deseret Biologicals (Desbio)DropsA real homeopathic HGH drops supplement that also contains real homeopathic Testosterone, estradiol, L Dopa, melatonin and growth factors from several sources. The ingredients look good on paper but all have been diluted to the extreme because of the way homeopathic hgh supplements have to be.
45Life-flo Healthcare IGF-1 plusSprayThis liposome sublinual vital spray formula from Life-Flo Health Care combines the power of potent herbs, IGF-1, IGF-2 and essential amino acids, but the ingredients are highly diluted and the working of homeopathic sprays is questionable.
46Problen HGH Plus IGF1 & IGF2SprayThis spray contains real homeopathic HGH along with Alpha GPC and several growth factors.
47Hgh Dopa 400 by Americas FinestPillsA single ingredient based HGH supplement containing L-Dopa that enhances dopamine supporting healthy mood and mental alertness as well as stimulating secretion of Human Growth Hormone. Unfortunately, a good HGH supplement requires more sophistication.
48Planetary Herbals Full Spectrum Antler VelvetPillsAnother single ingredient based HGH supplement containing Deer Antler Velvet that has several growth factors stimulating secretion of Human Growth Hormone. Unfortunately, a good HGH supplement requires more sophistication.
49Liddell HGH spray, Vital Age DefianceSprayAnother HGH spray with real homeopathic hgh and pituitaria glandula growth factor.
50DaVinci Laboratories Maxi-HGHPowderA simple amino acids based HGH supplement that claims to combine the proper quantities and ratios of L-Glutamine, L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Lysine and Glycine. Unfortunately, it seems to be more as a protein supplement, and also the price is far more expensive than other HGH products in the same league, not to mention it misses out on some crucial ingredients.
51NewuLife Somaderm HGH GelGelNewULife HGH transdermal gel is a homeopathic product promoted through an MLM scheme and an overwhelming number of positive reviews floating around on the internet and video sharing websites like Youtube, are in fact, posted by the sellers/multi-level marketers of NewuLife. Under-dosed ingredients, and unjustified expansive price, NOT to mention no renowned homeopathic expert supports any homeopathic HGH on the market. (Some experts even claim there is nothing “homeopathic” about them!)
52ISOTROPIN® TONE Oral Spray (Isotropin® HGH PRO 6X)SprayAnother spray product with real Somatotrophin (HGH), amino acids and growth factors. There are not many user reviews out there.
53Herbal Nutrition Muscle Force ExtremeSprayThis non-homeopathic HGH spray claims to be more Bio-available than pills/capsules and has 400mg Proprietary Growth Formula, Containing L-Arginine, Bulgarian Tribulus & Niacin. Dosing is good as compared to other similar products but way less than supplements in pills/capsules form, although the user reviews seem good.
54Pride Nutrition G-Max Strength & Endurance FormulaDropsA non-homeopathic liquid HGH drops supplement but with very underdosed quantity of amino acids and Tribulus extract. (At 30 MG only!)
55Vitamass Homeopathic HGH PatchPatchA homeopathic HGH 9990 ng patch that has Transdermal Homeopathic Somatotrophin (HGH) at 3C/30C dilution. NOT very impressive compared to other HGH sprays.
56Life Choice HGH+ HomeopathicDropsAnother homeopathic supplement that contains growth factors BUT not real HGH. The product is from a company called Life Choice founded by a naturopathic doctor Eldon Dahl.
57Athletic Edge HGH + Igf-1 by AnuMed InternationalDropsA liquid HGH drops supplement called Athletic Edge eHGH Booster Liquid Drops that contains a proprietary blend. This is a homeopathic product from a company Anumed in which Dr. Rene Ryba MD. has played an important role as Director of R&D. After years of deep studies of the options offered by the alternative approach Dr. Rene found his passion in the scientific arm of Naturopathic Medicine which he views as a great “synergistic bridge”, a missing link in the contemporary medical care.
58Maximum Result H7 ComplexSprayH7 Complex is an homeopathic HGH spray and its natural formula does not contain any prescription HGH or Human Growth Hormone. H7 Complex has natural herbal ingredients and claims to help those seeking anti-aging benefits, increased muscle tone & fat loss, better sleep & memory function, and increased energy & sex drive. We think there are better HGH sprays with more comprehensive ingredients.
59Swanson Rejuv HGH Vitality Renewal FormulaDropsThis liquid HGH drops supplement contains amino acids, GABA along with Alpha GPC and Mucuna pruriens (natural L-Dopa). This product is NOT homeopathic yet the ingredients are extremely low dosed. (in micrograms). So, this is a neither here or there supplement as it's NOT based on homeopathy and the quantities of ingredients are a fraction of what other amino acids based HGH supplements are offering.

List of some HGH products we reviewed

Pills vs Sprays vs Sublingual liquid drops vs Powders vs Patch/gel

HGH products primarily come in 6 different categories – pills, sprays, sublingual liquid drops, powders, patch & gel. Below chart explains the number of different brands in each category, currently popular in the marketplace.

As the above Bar-graph shows, the greatest market-share and popularity seems to be with HGH pills. And there can be many reasons, because it’s the most popular & hassle-free way of consuming a supplement.

Also, HGH supplements in pills form have got the most press & publicity and most popular among bodybuilders too. (Examples – Olympian Labs Dynamic HGH, HyperGH 14x, Natures Plus Ultra GHT, Purity Select HGH pills )

However, one HGH supplement that doesn’t come in pills form, and which has got Huge press coverage and almost cult like following is Somaderm gel.

After pills, on second position, HGH Sprays seem quite popular. They are especially very appealing to those who believe in Homeopathy. Now, there are many people & medical experts bashing homeopathic medicine & supplements, but truth remains that even if the homeopathic theories fly in the face of science, people have got better with homeopathic treatments in real life, causing many experts to change their stance on homeopathy. Homeopathic HGH may work for some people. Dr. Frank King explains the key to homeopathy’s great success is finding the right HGH formulas for each individual patient. We do have a recommendation though –  currently, we recommend’s 30000 nano spray as the best homeopathic HGH in the market.

Sublingual drops and Powders seem to be holding 3rd & 4th position, leaving very few HGH supplements that come in the form of patches or gels.

Key Points on HGH releasers & secretagogues

  • Finding good HGH products requires knowledge of individual ingredients and secretagogues (hgh releasers) in the product and how they work to enhance HGH production.
  • There are 7 ingredients (HGH releasers) that are really good, top of the cream stuff, that have been proven to be most essential in enhancing HGH naturally. However, NOT all products in the market, have these. Besides, those who do have these ingredients might NOT have it in sufficient quantities to trigger a response from the body. Proprietary blends have become a marketing tactic to hide the exact quantities of ingredients used.
  • An interesting aspect of HGH supplement industry is the fact that homeopathic HGH is still popular, even though FTC is considering requiring that all homeopathic products sold in the US come with a disclaimer on their packaging that there is NOT enough clinical evidence that they work.
  • Low doses of effective ingredients in the product:- When looking for an HGH releaser you’ll find dozens of pills and sprays claiming to contain the ingredients needed to increase your HGH levels and although you’ll find that they may contain some ingredients that have been scientifically proven to stimulate the production of HGH, they are in such a low dosage they do NOT actually work. Unfortunately this is common practice in the anti aging supplement industry since manufacturers want to be able to say their product contains certain ingredients while at the same time keeping their manufacturing costs as low as possible. That is why most HGH products do not work.
  • Always check if the product is overhyped:- For example, any hGH product containing amino acids like L-arginine, L-glutamine etc. is definitely good for anti aging and enhancing hGH but it will NEVER have a dramatic effect. Studies done on the usage of amino acids to increase hGH were done on intravenous “injections” that were several times the doses you receive in pills. So, the supplement manufacturers create a HYPE around their hGH supplement that it contains such and such amount of amino acids proven to increase hGH. However, they leave out the fact that amino acids were used via injections to increase hGH and that too in ridiculously huge doses. Such huge doses when taken in oral pill form will produce some nasty side effects like nausea, upset stomach, dizziness etc.(So, these supplement manufacturers hit 2 stones with 1 bird by having lesser doses of amino acids in their product. They make their product safe to consume and also raise their profit margins in the process. It is another story that the product might not be that effective. The consumer does not really feel the HGH effect and if there is any effect, it’s mostly placebo effect.Besides, the homeostasis system of the body ensures that the effect of these amino acids is minimized. After a surge in growth hormone after taking in these amino acids, the human body produces “somatostatin”, a hormone that signals the pituitary gland to stop producing more growth hormone and also instructs the intestines to stop absorption of amino acids.That’s why the most effective product will target the HGH secretion by various mechanisms. Amino acids are just one mechanism.Other ingredients like Phosphatidyl Choline are important too, which blocks the “somatostatin” hormone and helps increase the efficiency of amino acids and also helps in maintaining healthy brain cells. (Growth hormone is made in the brain).
  • There is no way to make a spray out of the real pharmaceutical growth hormone. No scientific method or formulation exists by now. Even if they could make it somehow, how can a company legally sell a drug (real hgh) without a prescription. You need a prescription to purchase it. Do we hear of a viagra spray, phentermine spray ? A homeopathic HGH spray that has like 10x or 30x dilution of real HGH, can be sold however, because it’s almost negligible. “Real HGH”, like Viagra, is an FDA approved and monitored drug that requires prescription.
