Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban recently informed reporters that he has made a significant financial contribution to fund a potential two-year university study on the possible benefits of using human growth hormone (HGH) in the recovery process with certain types of injuries. Cuban announced the news prior to the Mavericks/Los Angeles Clippers game on April 4.(1)
“We commend Mark Cuban on his proposal to help fund a prospective HGH study,” said Dan Smith from HGH.com, a leading provider of Purity Select bodybuilding and HGH supplements. “Our company has long recognized the positive effects of natural HGH supplementation, so we’re pleased to see this level of commitment and interest in HGH as a way to help injured athletes.”
Cuban’s pledge to support the HGH study revealed his pursuit to help the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the general public understand the truth about HGH and its potential future role in helping injured athletes achieve faster recovery times. NBA writer Zach Harper of CBSSports.com noted that with advancements in medical technology and injury recovery methods, HGH is “a topic worth exploring for a league looking to protect the [players] on the court.”(2)
The question of whether or not human growth hormone (HGH) should be included on the NBA’s list of banned substances was initially raised by Cuban at the NBA’s Board of Governors meeting in October 2013.
While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to approve the most common uses of HGH, some athletes use growth hormone (GH) injections to attain larger muscles, enhance strength, increase energy, reduce body fat and speed up muscle recovery to perform at optimal levels.
Even though the use of HGH in its synthetic-injection form requires a medical prescription from a licensed physician, there are many over-the-counter HGH supplementation products on the market that claim to work in a way similar to pharmaceutical HGH.
“Unfortunately, very few companies offering HGH products have appropriate scientific research supporting them,” stated Smith. “At Purity Select, we’re always working with our Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) labs, which research and develop ingredients to help us deliver the best natural HGH supplements, sprays and shakes that science and technology can offer.”
Smith continued, “We applaud Mark Cuban for his efforts to educate the public and find the truth about the benefits of HGH. Hopefully this will help spark a broader conversation on which type of performance-enhancing drugs (PED) should or should not be banned from sports.”
Currently, Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Football League (NFL), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) have all banned HGH. “Nevertheless, it is our human nature to continually move forward in medical advancements and discover the hidden potential and best uses of HGH supplements – not solely as a performance enhancer, but more importantly as a natural way to improve our body, health, strength and overall quality of life,” added Smith.
In response to the controversy concerning human growth hormone injections, Smith stated, “Some experts argue against the use of synthetic injections because they fear introducing synthetic HGH into the body may upset natural HGH production and has been shown to have certain side effects. It is for these reasons we would like to see more long-term studies on the benefits, effects and uses of all-natural, injection-free HGH supplements like the products we offer at HGH.com.”
Smith concluded, “We have thousands of loyal and satisfied customers who use HGH products from Purity Select, and a diversity of controlled studies from accredited universities is both paramount and welcomed.”
