I am 30 years old and my boyfriend got me settard on saizen a hgh and I was wondering if it is the best product for me myself to take. I weigh 143 and am wanting to tone up, increase my energy and overall feel better and healthier. I take the dosage requested by or representative, I feel healthier but it doesnt seem to be helping with weight loss or toning. Is there something better specific to my needs that would work more efficiently for me?
