VPX Hemogex Review
Product Information (as stated by VPX)
Potent GH and IGF-1 inducer in proprietary scientific oral polylipid delivery system. HEMOGEX keeps GH and IGF-1 blood levels elevated long after injectable pharmaceutical synthetic Growth Hormone has quit working. The scientific Polylipid breakthrough delivers D-ALA-D-BETA -NAL-ALA-TRP-D-PHE-LYS-NH2 (Z-11) into the bloodstream completely intact, bypassing the destructive effects of the liver and heads straight to the anterior pituitary to induce massive amounts of Growth Hormone, which is then converted into potent levels of IGF-1.
Clinical trials prove that HEMOGEX can increase serum Growth Hormone levels up to 4,120 ng/dl and in other clinical trials up to 718% above baseline levels and for an extended period of two hours! Further, HEMOGEX has proven to increase serum IGF-1 up to 10,000 ng/dl above baseline levels in clinical trials.
Dispense entire content of one vial of HEMOGEX into mouth and swallow. Best results are achieved when HEMOGEX is taken on an empty stomach one hour prior to resistance training. HEMOGEX is also highly effective when consumed prior to sleep on an empty stomach. For rapid accrual of lean muscle, always consume CEX and/or a NITRONX protein shake 20 minutes following training. For individuals strictly focusing on reducing bodyfat levels, consume a Zero Impact MRP protein shake 20 minutes after resistance exercise. Additionally, a high protein meal, rich in essential fat along with copious amounts of fibrous vegetables should also be consumed during the one hour period following a workout. Because growth hormone production is dependent upon adequate levels of Zinc, Magnesium and Potassium, the patented CMZ mineral formula by VPX should also be added to one's supplement protocol. Always consult a nutritionist, dietitian, licensed medical practitioner and professionally certified personal trainer prior to taking any supplement, modifying your diet and/or beginning any exercise program.
Hemogex by VPX represents and extremely fascinating and obscure ergogenic aid that is actually quite difficult to categorize. The product is essentially VPX's answer to HGH manipulation. Hemogex is not a synthetic preparation of human growth hormone or insulin-like growth factor 1, rather it contains the peptide GHRP-6 (growth hormone releasing peptide - 2) that allegedly causes the pituitary gland to release HGH, which thereby in theory should positively influence body composition.
I was extremely fascinated by this product, as GHRP-2 does have some scientific merit. Unlike disappointing mega doses of arginine, advocated to increase HGH levels. In actual studies published in clinical journals, GHRP-2 has be shown to increase food intake and serum levels of HGH. Please observe the following abstract.

Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2 (GHRP-2), Like Ghrelin, Increases Food Intake in Healthy Men

GHRP-2 is a synthetic agonist of ghrelin, the newly-discovered gut peptide which binds to the growth hormone (GH) secretagogue receptor. Ghrelin has two major effects, stimulating both GH secretion and appetite/meal initiation. GHRP-2 has been extensively studied for its utility as a growth hormone secretagogue (GHS). Animal studies have shown its effect on food intake. However, whether GHRP-2 can also stimulate appetite in humans when administered acutely is not known. We subcutaneously infused 7 lean, healthy males with GHRP-2 (1 ug/kg/h) or saline for 270 minutes and then measured their intake of an ad libitum, buffet-style meal. Similar to what has been reported for ghrelin administration, our subjects ate 35.9 +/- 10.9% more when infused with GHRP-2 vs. saline, with every subject increasing their intake even when calculated per kg body weight (136.0 +/- 13.0 kJ/kg [32.5 +/- 3.1 kcal/kg] vs. 101.3 +/- 10.5 kJ/kg [24.2 +/- 2.5 kcal/kg], p = 0.008). The macronutrient composition of consumed food was not different between conditions. As expected, serum GH levels rose significantly during GHRP-2 infusion (AUC 5550 +/- 1090 ug/L/240 min vs. 412 +/- 161 ug/L/240 min, p = 0.003). These data are the first to demonstrate that GHRP-2, like ghrelin, increases food intake, suggesting that GHRP-2 is a valuable tool for investigating ghrelin effects on eating behavior in humans.
Alleged Effects of Product Compared to User Results
Please note that VPX does not suggest Hemogex will result in these effects, rather they state that the following are effects of HGH and IGF1.
Effects of GH/IGF 1 include:
More muscle (anabolism)
I did not notice any increase in lean body mass during the use of this product.
Lower body fat
No fat loss was observed
Joint healing and recovery
About a year ago I experienced a devastating rotator cuff injury. Also, my hip joints are somewhat tender. I was especially hopeful that Hemogex would result in some sort of improvement, however, no benefit was observed.
Less muscle breakdown (anticatabolism)
It is difficult to comment on this since I was not dieting and restricting calories, which would induce a catabolic state.
VPX Hemogex is a promising product with actual scientific merit and is legally and easily obtainable. Despite this, I really didn't see any difference in body composition, strength, pump, or any other criteria. As intriguing as the product is, it suffers from a major downfall. The price of Hemogex is approximately $100 for a 20 day supply. Now, that may be acceptable to some, however due to the nature of this product, such a price is borderline absurd. Allow be to elaborate. Even if one were to inject HGH daily, it would take much longer than 20 days to notice and tangible benefit. Users of inject able HGH report that the hormone must be taken for at least a couple months to notice any real difference. So, unless you plan on purchasing 4 or 5 kits of Hemogex, I don't really see what benefit one kit would have. Therefore, although I believe this product might have some use to a person interested in leaning out, perhaps better pumps, and ultimately accrual of muscle tissue, I can not justify the current price of Hemogex. If the price was dramatically lower, I would purchase this product as I believe that it may have some benefit if consumed for extended periods of time.
