A releaser is a substance that causes a gland to release, or secrete, one of the hormones it produces. However, in the case of growth hormone, a releaser does not cause the gland to make the hormone. The word "releaser" can be interchanged with the word "secretagogue".
In the case of a growth hormone releaser, we are referring to the signal the *pituitary gland receives from the **hypothalamus to release or secrete growth hormone. The signal is referred to as GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) comprised of GHRP (growth hormone releasing peptides).
GH-Elite is designed to mimick or duplicate the releasing signal that originates at the hypothalamus, a process that slows down starting as early as late 30s.
(*pituitary gland referred to as the master gland of the endocrine system because its hormones control other parts of the endocrine system. Has anterior and posterior lobes that produce 8 different hormones regulated by signals from the hypothalamus.
**hypothalamus: portion of the brain with primary functions of linking the nervous system to the endocrine system via the pituitary gland, maintaining the body's internal balance or homeostasis and producing hormones that regulate other hormones throughout the body)
GH-Elite is a "GH Releaser"
