GHR 15

I have heard quite a bit recently (maybe they are just advertising more) about GHR 15 as a Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Releaser & Anti-Aging Formula.

It sounds attractive except for one of the ingrediants a "purified powder form of the hypothalamus gland" obtained from sheep. The other ingredients seem to be amino acids in certain amounts and in a set relationship.

Do you think there is any danger in the hypothalamus ingredient since there is no telling where the sheep came from or what type of infections or things that they might have encountered?

Is there a safe source of these glandular products?

Do you think that HGH releasers by oral preparations are a viable approach rather than HGH injections?

I am partial to real HGH and real human GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) is not yet available. The animal fragments of GHRH seem to potentiate HGH when used together, but you may (do) have considerations about purity.
