Avatropin is a supplement produced in the US by Cellusyn Labs. Several contact options are available for customer services, but neither the company website nor the Avatropin product website provides any information about Cellusyn or where the company is based so first impressions are not good.
Avatropin is designed to encourage the body to release an increased amount of human growth hormone (HGH).
Promised benefits include:
- Increased energy levels
- Sexual vitality
- Diminished facial wrinkles
- Greater memory and focus
- Stronger immune system
HGH products are usually favored by two main user groups—bodybuilders and people who are trying to fight the ageing process. The prominent picture of an elderly man displayed on the Avatropin website strongly suggests Cellusyn are marketing Avatropin as an anti-aging product, but if it really can increase the body’s level of HGH it would be equally suitable for bodybuilders.
There are so many products like this, it’s hard to pick a good one. The best products we have seen are detailed in our reviews. Just follow the link below to read some.
What is Avatropin and how does it Work?
HGH is an important hormone produced in the pituitary gland. As the body ages the amount produced decreases. This results in a slowed metabolism and weight gain. The sex drive decreases, muscle mass becomes harder to retain, and wrinkles and hair loss/greying becomes an issue.
Avatropin has been designed to stimulate the pituitary gland and get the all-important juices flowing again.
Avatropin contains a few vitamins and minerals that may help give a little pep to the day, but everything else is hidden in a proprietary blend that contains a large number of ingredients. The Avatropin website indicates seven of them are considered to be of key importance:
- L-Dopa: Several studies suggest L-dopa can stimulate the release of HGH, but side effects may be an issue.
- AstraGin: A patent-protected formulation that can increase the absorption rate of other ingredients.
- Tonalin: A patent-protected formulation made from safflower oil. Tonalin is unlikely to provide HGH, but the ingredient is known to be an effective weight loss inducer and to also promote the growth of lean muscle tissue.
- Forskolin: An extract, taken from the Kenyan plant coleus forskohil, often used to promote muscle growth.
- Fenugreek: Some studies suggest Fenugreek may stimulate the release of HGH and also boost energy levels.
- Resveratrol: A healthy ingredient sourced from grapes and high in antioxidants. Resveratrol is often touted as a HGH releaser, but this cannot by backed up by scientific evidence.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid: An antioxidant manufactured by the body. It appears to have the ability to lower blood sugar levels, and may assist weight loss, but does not have a proven ability to stimulate HGH production.
Independent reviews are hard to find, but the Avatropin website contains several glowing testimonials that are attributed to satisfied customers.
Two example testimonials read:
As always, testimonials from such a biased source are not to be relied upon and in this case the accompanying small print reads: ‘Results in Testimonials are atypical and individual results may vary.’ The Merriam Webster dictionary defines ‘atypical’ as ‘not typical, irregular, unusual’. So the small print pretty much blows the big boasts out of the water.
Cellusyn says Avatropin is 100% safe, but several of the blend constituents have known side effects.
- L-Dopa: Hypertension, nausea, gastrointestinal bleeding.
- Tonalin: Nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, high blood pressure.
- Forskolin: Increased heart rate, low blood pressure, stomach problems.
- Fenugreek: Not suitable for pregnant women because it may encourage uterine contractions and induce labor.
- Alpha Lipoic Acid: Headaches, muscle cramps, skin rashes.
Product Availability and Pricing
Avatropin can be purchased from the Cellusyn website or the Avatropin website. In both cases the price ranges from $59.95 (1 month supply) to $139.95 (3 month supply). Worldwide shipping is available and customers who purchase two or more bottles receive complimentary bottles of companion products, along with free shipping (US customers only). Pricewise Avatropin gets a gold star because some manufacturers charge ridiculously high prices for HGH products—often up to three times the price of Avatropin.
Avatropin is also available from eSupplements.com and Amazon. Customers who choose one of these options can secure savings of $10 to $15.
All purchases of Avatropin are protected by a 90 day money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
Cellusyn may be targeting an older crowd, but the Avatropin formulation will probably work better for bodybuilders than it will for people trying to recapture their lost youth. L-dopa is the only ingredient that offers any real potential as HGH provider, but the inclusion rate is unknown, so the blend may not contain enough of it to be of any benefit.
Several of the ingredients encourage muscle growth, but again the lack of inclusion rates is an issue, as is the possibility of side effects and the lack of independent customer feedback. Avatropin may offer some benefits as a HGH provider, but it’s a gamble. There’s a money back guarantee in place though, so it may be worth a try.
