Muscle Building HGH Supplement Human Growth Hormones For Anti Aging
Is human growth hormone effective for anti aging?
Every time this question is answered on the internet it is always
along the lines of "there have been no studies" or "there is no
conclusive proof". This is correct, if you want studies you will
probably die of old age before you see them. If growth hormone was
actually proven to repair the body and slow the ageing process that
would be against the "big pharma" interests as their business
depends on people constantly requiring medicine, to fight off all
the aging related illnesses.
The levels of naturally produced growth hormone in humans are
reduced in half every 10 years of life. This means a 10 year old's
body produces 50% less HGH than a baby's body. A 20 year old person
would then have only a quarter when compared to the growth hormone
levels in babies. In old age, there is barely enough HGH produced
to keep the metabolism going. As the human body declines into old
age, so do the levels of growth hormone (as well as several other
hormones like progesterone, melatonin, DHEA, etc).
Anti aging is the second most popular use for HGH
There has to be a reason for all the anti aging clinics to keep
prescribing it. If injectable growth hormone showed no results it
would be long abandoned.
Here are some of the observable effects of HGH (which even the "nay
sayers" cannot deny):
- smoother (baby like) skin, initially noticeable on the back of
one's hand and later on throughout the body
- faster hair and nail growth
- higher energy levels
- faster energy recovery after physical activity
- muscle growth
- reduction in body fat reserves
I have personally been using it for over a decade (on and off). In
addition to the above listed effects I have observed that my
overall body physique improves within a few weeks of starting my
cycle. Even though the face wrinkles do not disappear, or even
drastically improve the rest of the body does. I would say I look
and feel about 20% better within 3 weeks of starting my cycle. I
usually take 4IU per day split into two daily injections. I keep my
cycles between 3 to 6 months long, after that I pause for at least
2 months to let my thyroid rest a bit.
How do I reconstitute and inject the growth hormone?
When in liquid form, the somatropin molecules are very fragile.
They easily get destroyed by heat (even room temperatures) and
vigorous shaking. Some precautions are necessary - do not inject
the water directly into the powder with force, do not drop or shake
a reconstituted vial, do not freeze it and do not leave it out of
the refrigerator for longer than a few minutes. Keep the freeze
dried (lyophilized) growth hormone vials refrigerated as well.
Human growth hormone can be reconstituted with several types of
water, including sterile bacteriostatic water (0.9% sodium
chloride), normal saline (0.9% NaCl) or plain sterile water for
injection. Any will work, but if possible the plain sterile water
should be used.
Although HGH can be mixed and injected with any type and size of
syringe, the Insulin type syringes are the most suitable. If
possible get the ones with 100 markings on the side. It will make
it easier to properly determine the dosage of HGH.
3. HGH mixing (reconstitution) instruction:
Remove the plastic cap from the top of the vial and clean the
rubber with a medical alcohol pad/swab. Take and insulin syringe
and pull 1 ml of water (100 markings) into it. Note: regardless of how much water you use (be it 1ml or 2ml) the
mixture still has the same overall strength. Water is just a
transport method for the HGH. If you used double amount of water
when reconstituting the HGH, you would have to use double amount of
mixture when injecting yourself to get the same dose. People
usually use 1ml because it fits fully into a standard insulin type
You now have 1ml of water in the syringe. Push the needle through
the rubber cap of the vial, but position it sideways so that the
water will slide down the inside wall of the vial. Do not inject
directly into the powder with force, rather let the water slide out
Majority of the white powder will dissolve within seconds, but
there will be some lumps left over. Do not shake the vial in an
attempt to get them to dissolve. If you are in a hurry, you can
gently roll the vial between your fingers. If you do this for a few
minutes all of the powder will dissolve. Alternatively you can let
the vial sit in the refrigerator for 15 - 30 minutes. By that time
the somatropin will dissolve completely.
Before pulling the liquid HGH into the insulin syringe, give the
vial a few turns between your fingers to gently mix the solution.
The HGH vials are under vacuum (negative air pressure) which makes
it harder to pull the liquid out. To relieve the vacuum inject a
full syringe of air into the top of the vial (do not make the
Some people use a new syringe for each injection, others pull the
entire content of the HGH vial into the syringe and reuse it
several times until it's empty. The choice is yours.
4. HGH Dosage:
If somatropin was prescribed to you by a doctor follow his dosage
instructions. If you are self prescribing/administering the general
dosage guidelines are as follows:
- 2 IU per day is used for anti aging purposes. You can inject it any
time of the day or a full or empty stomach - it does not matter. It
might be the most beneficial to take it in the morning, or at least
a few hours before bedtime because the body releases its own
endogenous growth hormone after a person falls asleep. Injecting
before bedtime might reduce the body's own release - robbing you of
a free bonus dose.
- 4 IU per day is usually used by athletes for bodybuilding, fat loss
and general fitness. Some people take 6IU per day, however the
higher the dose the more annoying the side effects can be. Carpal
tunnel syndrome being the side effect which usually forces the
athlete to lower the dose or pause the cycle for 2 - 3 weeks until
the carpal disappears. It is preferred to spread the daily dose
into multiple injections throughout the day. For example 2 IU in
the morning and 2 IU in late afternoon.
- 8 to 16 IU per day is used to speed up recovery after severe burns
or injuries. This is a pretty high dose and it should not be
continued for more than a few weeks. The carpal tunnel syndrome
will probably bother the user, but in the name of faster recovery
some discomfort may be tolerable.
