Supplement Amino Acid
The purpose of the study is to confirm the results of a prior study that demonstrated pills containing two amino acids which are in foods increased growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
|Official Title:||Growth Hormone 120 Minutes Following a Single Low-dose of Amino Acids in Healthy Subjects.|
- Quantity of Growth Hormone [ Time Frame: 3 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Measure human growth hormone at times -30, -15, 0, 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes on two occasions about one week apart. On one occasion, the proprietary amino acid derivative blend will be given orally at time 0 in capsule form, and on the other occasion the capsules will contain no amino acids.
- Insulin-like growth factor 1 [ Time Frame: 3 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Measure IGF-1 eight hours following the administration of the capsules containing the proprietary amino acid derivative blend or placebos.
