THE NANOGRAM HOAX
Many companies make claims about the amount of nanograms of growth hormone contained in each dose of their homeopathic growth hormone products. These claims are very misleading and inappropriate for homeopathic products for two reasons:
1.) The basic erroneous argument boils down to “more is better.” In homeopathy, it is well known that this is not the case. The effectiveness of homeopathic formulations is not dependent upon how much of an active ingredient is present is a formula. The goal of each homeopathic product is to include ingredients in the concentrations that will best stimulate the body. In many cases, the most effective concentrations are the higher dilutions. Thus, the most effective dilution of a homeopathic ingredient may be very dilute.
2.) A nanogram is 1 billionth of a gram. So the 100 to 1,000 nanograms of growth hormone claimed by various companies are, in fact, very close to nothing in terms of actual growth hormone content. As an example, Dr. Rudman, in his landmark study on human growth hormone is adults, administered doses of 2,750,000 nanograms per dose.
In clinical studies a homeopathic dilution of 30X to be a very effective dilution of human growth hormone. (At 30X, the growth hormone has been serially diluted 30 times.)
3.) It is important to realize that human growth hormone is a federally regulated drug and can not be sold over the counter, but by prescription only. Therefore, any company claiming to sell human growth hormone over the counter would be in fact breaking the law!
