Are you deficient?: Hi. If you're GH-deficient, I would suggest you try it. Most of my hypo pit patients like it and stay with it. Benefits include muscle mass/lean body mass/strength, bone health, sense of well being, energy level, endurance, etc. If you don't feel better, you can always stop taking it.
