Dopalean-GH is yet another controversial supplement in that supposedly helps you naturally raise levels of anabolic hormones for better bodybuilding results and improved performance. Unlike many products in this category however, Dopalean-GH is also formulated to burn fat as it simultaneously triggers growth hormone production. Their aim in this is to pare away flab to sculpt muscle and provide heightened definition. These are obviously exciting benefits but does Dopalean-GH have the ingredients to realistically make this happen? Let’s find out.
What is in Dopalean-GH?
One of the two main ingredients in Dopalean-GH is Mucuna Pruriens. Mucuna Pruriens extract is a good source of compound called L-Dopa. According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, researchers at Kobe University School of Medicine found that injections of .5 grams of L-Dopa could cause “a significant increase in both plasma hGHRH-LI and GH levels in normal subjects.” Higher GH levels result in improved muscle growth, enhanced performance and output, and better stamina. However, Dopalean-GH only contains 150mg of L-Dopa. We haven’t seen clinical evidence that would indicate how much effect this low amount might yield.
The other ingredient in Dopalean-GH is Svetol, a patented form of green coffee extract. Svetol’s effectiveness has made it a popular ingredient common to several supplements. In fact, it’s currently one of Hydroxycut’s staples. Clinical research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry showed that Svetol can inhibit glucose-6-phosphatase, the enzymatic process that converts breaks carbohydrates into glucose. By blocking this process, less glucose reaches the blood and less glucose is stored as fat. One study showed that overweight subjects on a low-calorie diet lost 4.97kg more than the low-calorie diet subjects taking a placebo over a two month period.
This supplement has solid ingredients. Sadly, it doesn’t necessarily contain them in the right amounts. It has 200mg of Svetol which is ample but it only contains 150mg of L-Dopa. Most studies we’ve seen require higher concentrations to really produce noticeable results. In the end we would recommend looking into GH supplements that contain a more comprehensive blend of amino acids anyway.
