Sylvester Stallone and HGH

Sylvester stallone has been in the news this week as at the age of 61 he is starring in a new Rambo movie and again talking about the benefits of taking human growth hormone.

As you may or may not know human growth hormone, also known as HGH is a supplement that raises your testosterone level and  is also suspected of creating side effects like cancer and lower natural testosterone output.

Sylvester Stallone has spoken out in defence of human growth hormone, saying it has increased his quality of life, and everyone over 40 should use it and says it “increases your quality of life”.

The 61-year-old action star – who was convicted in May 2007 for importing human growth hormone product Jintropin into Australia – insists the substance is “not a steroid”, and claims “everyone over 40″ should try it.

He told Time magazine: “Human growth hormone helped me to get up to 209lbs for the new Rambo movie, which is 40lbs heavier than I was for the last one 20 years ago.

“Human growth hormone is nothing. Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed. Testosterone to me is important for a sense of well-being when you get older. Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases your quality of life.

“Mark my words, in 10 years it will be available over the counter.”
