Ten months ago, I was introduced to SomaDerm when a homoeopath in her late fifties recommended the gel, saying it works wonders for midlife men and women with weight gain, dwindling libido, and ageing skin. I went online and saw self-described ‘sellers’ of Somaderm who see it as a miracle elixir and a fountain of vitality.
To put this into perspective, over the years, I have tried and been offered a shedload of stuff to boost my well-being. So, my initial response was an apprehensive curiosity with ‘eyes rolled to the sky’. I wished to believe that this gel was the ‘midlife tune-up’ just like a car service. However, a Google search revealed a four-year-old Guardian article that completely slammed the gel, its users, and its creator, Alexy Goldstein.
Newspaper headlines change how we think, which can be far from the reality. The article’s number of words was most notable, over 3,000. At the same time, most pieces are between 750 and 800 words. Leader articles usually contain around 1,200 words. The main thrust of the article contained statements such as:
“Never felt worse on that stuff”, “Whatever it is, it is awful and perilous”, and “I attempted it. I am dissatisfied and have returned four bottles ($600 worth of product), but they will not issue a refund, return my phone calls, or respond to my emails. It is, at the very least, a fraud.”
But an alarm rang in my head: why was the article still on page one on Google after four years? I learned that the piece was instigated by a disgruntled former employee who now works for a rival company that pays to keep the article alive on page one of Google.
SomaDerm has little recourse because they cannot make a newspaper delete an article; that would be censorship. And its removal is down to the discretion of the newspaper, who are loathed to remove articles.
No matter how much the guys at Somaderm pay to remove it, their rivals pay to get it back up there. I call that a masterstroke by SomaDerm’s competitor.
Each stage of our life is a life lesson, and we all go through numerous phases. These experiences shape us into the person we are now. I usually give things like foodstuffs and supplements three months before I decide to stay with it or move on.
My SomaDerm phase is ten months strong, and I’m not alone; people have voted with their wallets and have bought nearly 15 million bottles of the gel, and the numbers keep rising. Like other users, I believe it contributes to health and longevity.
What is SomaDerm?
Faster metabolism, cellular repair, muscle growth, an excellent immune system, and stabilised moods are benefits of having healthy human growth hormone levels (HGH).
The pituitary gland produces HGH, one hormone you need; however, as you age, your body produces less and less HGH. As a result, you will notice signs of ageing weight gain, deeper wrinkles, thinning hair, physical health, and decreased libido.
Human Growth Hormone stimulates childhood growth and cell regeneration, and it is illegal to use without a prescription in the United States. The only known method of administering HGH is via injection, so users must have access to syringes.
The FDA has prohibited the use of HGH except for specific medical conditions, including short bowel syndrome and HIV-associated muscle wasting disease. Most professional sports organisations in the United States and the International Olympic Committee have banned its use as a performance enhancer.
Fortunately, SomaDerm, created by herbalist, nutritional consultant, and homoeopath Alexy Goldstein, is a “homoeopathic transdermal gel with the effect of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) product available without a prescription”.
SomaDerm contains a “homoeopathic” dilution of Somatropin, a synthetic form of HGH, as well as Glandula Suprarenalis Suis and Thyroidinum and 8 “inactive” botanical constituents, such as liquorice root and epimedium, also known as ‘horny goat weed’. Studies have demonstrated its safety and efficacy.
‘Every SomaDerm user wants to be a Meta-Ager.’
I have been using the gel for nearly ten months, during a very stressful period that usually results in psoriasis. Somaderm did not stop me from getting psoriasis, but it made my skin heal quickly and look years younger. Other noticeable changes have been similar to those experienced by other users.
When I met with Alexy Goldstein for an online Q&A Zoom call, it was destiny, and we had a mutual admiration – I wanted what he had, and he loved what I had. He said: ‘Every SomaDerm user wants to be a Meta-Ager.’ I replied every Meta-Ager should use Somaderm. We had a common goal – a Midlife Extension, Not Old Age.
I asked Alexy about the Guardian article, and his response was priceless. He succinctly summed it up: “I feel honoured to be devoted over 3000 words in the UK’s National Press on just one of my products.”
Don’t rely on headlines that are more interested in causing controversy. Nearly fifteen million bottles of SomaDerm have been purchased, including by me. I have bought it, tried it, and now believe in it.
