It’s the new year which means all of us are back on diets and trying to make things happen. I know I will be going back to my Hgh booster/BCAA supplement for that extra boost. I have been using a combination of SeroVital, Ageless Foundation Ultra Max Gold Powder and Optimum Nutrition AminoEnergy for several years. Serovital works the best but is pricey at $90 a month. The others range between $35 to $50 a month. Last month I saw a new product at Trader Joe’s called Collagen Hydrolysate by Great Lakes Gelatin, so I picked one up.
This product has a similar formulation of amino acids that the other products have, plus collagen! Trader Joe’s sells a 15 day supply for $15. You can go direct to the company and get anywhere from a 30 day to six month supply starting at $23.99 (plus free shipping).
Now, the bad. This comes in a powder form, but it’s very thick. After some trial and error, I found it dissolves best in hot water. If you try to put in a warm or cool water, it doesn’t dissolve and you end up with thick gloppy remnants in the bottom of your bottle. I think it would work blended in a smoothie, I am just not a smoothie person. I still noticed similar results compared to the other booster supplements I use, but for now I am sticking with the Ultra Max Gold. It sells for $59.99 on the company’s website, but I have got it for around $35 at sites like(I may get a commission from these links) AllStarHealth.com and Amazon.com. If you want it right away, try visiting your local The Vitamin Shoppe, it seems like they always have it in stock.
Serovital, the popular hgh boosting supplement is now being offered at home shopping network Evine. Serovital is a complex formula of amino acids that provide great anti-aging benefits like boosting collagen and elastin production, energy and lean muscle mass. You can read my review here. I love this stuff but it can be pretty pricey, retailing at $99 for a 30 day supply.
Evine is offering Serovital for 30%-44% based on how often you order. It is available in 30, 60, and 90 day packages, all available with auto-delivery options. You can also use an installment program called value pay to cushion the blow. I found a couple of other ways you can save more. When you go to the site you’ll get a pop-up to join the mailing list- complete with a 15% coupon. You can also get a code for 20% off by referring a friend!
Botox is great! But the price, not so much. I am always looking for alternatives so when I saw this forehead smoothing kit, I had to try it out. The “Wrinkles Schminkles Forehead Smoothing Kit” is $30 and comes with two forehead patches, each good for 20-30 applications. There is also a men’s kit which I assume includes bigger patches?
How to use: Apply patch to a clean forehead before bed and sleep wearing it. In the morning, remove it and place it back in the plastic bag. The thick silicone patch works by preventing your forehead to wrinkle in the night and providing extra moisture to skin. The adhesive helps to hold it in place and life of the patches can be extended by using the brand’s cleaning solution.
The good: The patch is comfortable to wear at night but as the night wears on, it can slip a little. It does help to suppress wrinkles but not necessarily remove them. The patch is like anything, if you don’t religiously use it, you won’t see results. At $15 a month, it’s cheaper than Botox.
The bad: I wish it would have come with separate storage for each patch. When you open the bag to replace the first patch, the other one is exposed to the air and probably dries out faster. I also wish it adhered a little better. I was hoping it more like the SiO Beauty Chest Patch, a thick silicone (more like the blister band-aids) that totally adheres to the skin. I have also used Furlesse patches and Frownies (I may get a commission from this link). The Furlesse patches are a little too thin. Frownies are essentially craft paper with a vegetable based adhesive. They fit really snug and are supposed to “train” your muscles back to their original condition before wrinkles. If you can keep up with them (they are hard to remove and sometimes cause pimples) they work great!
Wrinkles Schminkles also sells patches for eyes, chest, lips, hands and the neck. They are an Australian company but you can find them at Macy’s, Amazon (I may get a commission from this link) and direct at wrinklesschminkles.com.
Serovital-hgh will be 50 percent off during ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty
In between hunting for eggs and enjoying Easter Brunch, you’ll want to head over to ULTA for a big sale on the hgh booster Serovital. On Sunday, April 1 Serovital hgh will be priced at $49.50 for a 30 day supply instead of the regular $99 retail price. This is the best deal I have seen on the product since I started using it in 2013. The ad does specify any limits on purchase, so if you really love it I would get as many as you can. All ULTA deals are usually available on the website as well – her is the link.
Serovital is supposed to naturally boost your body’s own hgh levels that dip with age. The boost gives you more energy, improves sleep, skin and mood. You can read my review here.
I am always looking for alternatives to my favorite hgh boosting supplement, SeroVital. This powder by Optimum Nutrition is equivalent to half of the effective ingredients the BCAA or Branched Chain Amino Acids. It contains a mix of amino acids and 160 mg of caffeine from natural sources (see below).
You mix it with water and can consume it once daily or prior to workouts. It is formulated to give you more energy, improve focus and help you recover faster from workouts.
I used it for a couple of weeks and I liked the fact that it helped me workout longer without feeling as tired. As for building more muscle, I’m not sure if it made a difference. It can make your heart race a little if you are sensitive to caffeine. I had to STOP using it because something in it messed up my digestive system (I won’t give you the gory details). I was dairy free and I had to go back to eating probiotic yogurt to get back to normal.
So suffice to say, I won’t be consuming this anymore. I wouldn’t discourage others from trying it. It comes in 16 flavors and is priced at about $19 for 30 servings and $35 for a 65 serving container. You can find it online at Amazon (I may get a commission from this link), Allstar Health and many other health stores.
