Description
CLINICALLY TESTED HORMONE SECRETAGOGUE MAXIMUM STRENGTH FORMULA*

682% MEAN INCREASE IN SERUM LEVELS*
In a recent, randomized, cross-over, double-blind clinical trial, men and women between 18 and 70 years of age were recruited. Subjects were scheduled for two testing sessions a week apart where, after an overnight fast, blood samples were drawn over a period of 120 minutes after consumption of either the proprietary Growth Factor-9 blend or placebo capsules. Neither the subjects nor the investigators knew at which session the subjects received the GF-9 blend and at which session they received the placebo. At the end of the study, the samples were tested for serum hormone levels, and the results were independently analyzed. The results: the GF-9 blend led to a 682% increase in serum hormone levels at 120 minutes, which was significant above and beyond placebo.*

Health Notes

Amino Acids Overview

Amino Acids Overview
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Aspartic acid is an amino acid that participates in many biochemical reactions relating to energy and protein. Research suggests that it may help reduce fatigue during exercise.(more)
Schizophrenia

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAspartic acid is a non-essential amino acid that participates in many biochemical reactions relating to energy and protein. Preliminary, though conflicting, animal and human research suggested a role for aspartic acid (in the form of potassium and magnesium aspartate) in reducing fatigue during exercise.1 However, most studies have found aspartic acid useless in improving either athletic performance or the body's response to exercise.2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Schizophrenia
Dose: Refer to label instructionsL-Theanine is an amino acid present almost exclusively in the tea plant. It has been found to have mood-enhancing and relaxing properties. In a double-blind trial that included patients with schizophrenia or a related condition (schizoaffective disorder) who were taking antipsychotic medications, the addition of 400 mg per day of L-theanine for 8 weeks significantly improved anxiety and various other psychiatric symptoms, compared with a placebo. L-Theanine was safe and well tolerated.1

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Twenty amino acids are needed to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of body tissues. Eleven of these amino acids can be made by the body itself, while the other nine (called essential amino acids) must come from the diet. The essential amino acids are isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Another amino acid, histidine, is considered semi-essential because the body does not always require dietary sources of it. The nonessential amino acids are arginine, alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. Other amino acids, such as carnitine and taurine, are used by the body in ways other than protein-building and are often used therapeutically. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea that is said to help relieve stress. Beta-alanine has been used to prevent fatigue during exercise.

Comments about BIO MINERALS Novex Biotech™ Growth Factor-9™:

I take it at night. You have to wait 2 hours after you take your last bite . That is not so easy some times. I do sleep much better. I am 77 years old. I do have more energy. I will keep taking it. I have been on it for 2 months. I will take it for at least 2 more months just to see if I keep my energy level up.

    Comments about BIO MINERALS Novex Biotech™ Growth Factor-9™:

    After reading every review I could find during the course of a month, I decided to purchase the product. I have been taking it for 7 short days. I can attest that it works! I work out with weights in the gym and have had a hard time getting over my plateau. This has given me the extra boost I need to go the extra mile in the gym. I work midnight shifts so sleep proper sleep has always been an issue-- not in the last 7 day. I feel amazingly youthful and energized. I have had little to no muscle soreness at all and I workout a lot with weights. The recovery process is undeniable. Also in just a week, I am beginning to see the formation of my abs peaking through and I have not added any additional ab work. On the scale I have dropped one pound but I feel its actually more due to the little muscle growth I can see and measured (muscle weighs more). Did I mention how wonderful and glowing my skin is???Some are skeptical because of the price but I care more about the results. I have wasted ten times that much on there products that I've thrown away that don't work at all. I cant wait to see even better results as time moves along. I would suggest taking at night only because I get up early and 2hrs is so long for me to wait to have breakfast after I take them.

    Comments about BIO MINERALS Novex Biotech™ Growth Factor-9™:

    Haven't been taking this long enough to notice any muscle gains or fat loss yet, but my workouts are way better with this and the testrovax. I have always had trouble with sleeping and energy levels due to the shift work, but since starting this I sleep through the night and wake up feeling good.

      Two weeks today and having better workouts, which is key; certainly not a miracle drug but it does boost your workout and I already see some muscle build and definition. I will say, it's somehow leveled my mood and sleep pattern. No issues falling asleep or remaining asleep.

        This product works but it takes time ( I have been on for 6 months) I have noticed a reduction in wrinkles and body mass (muscles) is slowly getting thicker . If you can afford this supplement I would recommend this product.

            Well, before i started on this stack i was taking the asteroid stack. I switched over to this product,Testrovax, and Thermodyne. Now there wasnt a thing wrong with the asteroid stack, but the Ultimate stack has something in it that i never got from the Asteroid... I feel AMAZING! In side and out!! even if i don't exercise i can feel it working. I feel ready to accomplish things i usually put off. I go the extra set and i go again. This stack is simply worth every penny. Yesterday i was doing a little landscaping, i moved approximately 2000 pounds of material in under an hour. My friends and family were in awe. Im sold and hooked. I will be on this product until my body adapts to it.
