Healthy 'N Fit Nutritionals GH Enhancers: The Growth Hormone Booster that Definitely Worth Trying

In a double-blind study, adult males participating in a 5-week progressive strength-training program who consumed 2 grams of L-arginine and 1 gram of L-ornithine experienced significantly higher total strength and lean body mass scores and excreted less urinary hydroxyproline than placebo-treated subjects.
