We are always on the lookout for interesting ingredients and new products to try and review. Several of our staff has been trying out Labrada’s Humanofort and although the results produced are subtle we think it is a decent product.
Realistically it is not a big muscle builder but probably more appropriate for keeping testosterone levels high during intense training. Often intense training can cause a drop in testosterone levels which obviously isn’t ideal for someone looking to maximize performance. Humanofort is a supplement that could help keep test levels from being comprised during this type of training. Recovery could also be enhanced by this product as well. By optimizing testosterone and growth hormone levels users should be able to recover more quickly leading to more frequent and more intense training sessions.
The other role we see this product playing is as a PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) component. It should not be run on its own but could be run with other post cycle products to help bring back hormone levels more quickly.
See below for a more detailed description of Humanofort.
Humanofort is a powerful, pharmaceutically standardized chicken embryo extract that contains naturally occurring growth factors. These growth factors are made of clusters of low-molecular weight oligopeptides, which, by their very nature, are quickly and easily assimilated and transported to their specific receptor sites. Each of the growth factors in Humanofort has unique, bio-stimulating properties:
IGF-1, IGF-2 (insulin-like growth factor-1,2)- a family of peptides that play important roles in growth and development. IGF-1 mediates many of the growth-promoting effects of growth hormone, while IGF-2 is essential to liver, kidney, and brain function.
FGF (fibroblast growth factors)- a family of peptides that play a prominent role in the development of the skeletal and nervous system.
NGF (nerve growth factors)- peptides that promote neural cell survival.
EGF (epidermal growth factors)- polypeptides that promote skin tissue growth and development as well as wound healing.
CTGF (connective tissue growth factors)- peptides that promote collagen accumulation in the body. Experimental and clinical tests have revealed that
Humanofort induces a highly significant increase in key adrenal hormones like 17-ketosteroid sulfates and 17-hydroxycorticosteroids.
Humanofort has also been shown to increase plasma concentrations of DHEA, DHEA-S, and testosterone—all while normalizing elevated cortisol levels.1
Initial Clinical Trial: Twenty-eight healthy male rugby players (age 20-32) volunteered to participate in a 21 day clinical trial.1 Blood was drawn and hormone levels measured before the start of the trial to establish a baseline for each of the players. After 21 days of consuming 600mg of Humanofort per day, with no modifications made to their diet or training, hormone levels were again measured in the rugby players. The results confirmed that Humanofort significantly increased key anabolic hormones while improving recovery by reducing oxidative stress.
