  Boost Your Immune System before Flu Season

There is much speculation about the potential for a significant flu outbreak this season. In view of this it makes sense to keep your immune system as strong as possible.

Reduced immune system effectiveness may be one of the consequences of reduced HGH and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) levels in human aging.

Growth Hormone Replacement is thought to boost immune system functioning that has declined with age.

Now is an excellent time to start or re-commit to your antiaging medicine program.

Here are some studies that examine the role of IGF1 and the immune system:
