Ageless Foundation UltraMax Gold is still on backorder

If you have come to my blog looking for a hgh booster similar to SeroVital, you have probably come across my many posts for Ageless Foundation UltraMax Gold Powder. I’m sorry to say that for the past 60 days or so, it has been impossible to find. I reached out to the parent company Naturade to find out the status and here was their response:

In the meantime, I know we all need our hgh amino acid blends to stay in shape! so I made a list of alternatives you can try in the meantime. (I may get a commission from these links).

SeroVital Dietary Supplement, 160 count (of course)

Ageless Foundation Laboratories Ultramax Gold Caplets – This is a weaker formulation of the powder. Find it at  AllStarHealth.com.

Great Lakes Gelatin – Collagen Hydrolysate Kosher – Unflavored Protein – 16 oz – You can also find a smaller version of this at Trader Joes.

Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy Orange is the best flavor.

Nature’s Youth RSF Amino Acid Booster, Anti-Aging Powder – I haven’t tried this one yet. It’s a powder just like the Ageless Foundation product.

An hgh Booster at Trader Joe’s?

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.

Collagen Hydrolysate by Great Lakes Gelatin

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.

Review: Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy Powder

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.
