Everything the beginner should know on how to use HGH
Everything the beginner should know on how to use hgh
1. What can you understand with an analysis?
2. The use
If you are reading this article, then you know what growth hormone is at a minimum.
Let's clarify the terminology just in case.
- Other names of the human growth hormone: somatotropic hormone, somatropin, HGH, growth hormone
- Insulin-like growth factor: aka IGF-1, somatomedin C
We won't explore the history of the drug. We will look at the pros and cons of using hgh in sports and in everyday life.
• anabolic action (causes muscle growth);
• anti-catabolic action (inhibits muscle destruction);
• reduces the fat layer;
• regulates the use of energy;
• accelerates the healing of wounds;
• rejuvenating effect;
• triggers the re-growth of internal organs (what atrophies with age);
• promotes bone growth and prolongs until the age of 26 (until the growth zones are closed), strengthens bones;
• positively affects the condition of ligaments and joints;
• strengthens the immune system.
• increases blood glucose levels;
• high doses can deplete the pancreas;
• depresses production and conversion of thyroid hormones;
• theoretically, due to stimulation of IGF-1 production, can cause or accelerate tumor growth.
The stories about the growth of ears, nose and jaw because of the use of hgh are not true. Take it as a joke, but in the presence of painful conditions like acromegaly it is possible. This is an entirely different kind of problem.
A healthy person would have no problem with it. Problems are only possible with superdose of somatropin, but 99.99% of people don't have enough money or courage for that. Real facts of the growth of huge noses, ears and jaws from the use of growth hormone were not exist.
So, you have decided that you are going to use human growth hormone. We are not going to talk about whether you need it or not. There will be no discussion of the reasons for this decision or any attempts to talk you out of it. We will simply tell you what to start with and what not to do.
If you have already researched the Internet about the use of growth hormone in sports and other practices, then you know about the necessity of getting tested for "sugar", thyroid hormones and even cancer-markers.
Let's start with "sugar," i.e. fasting blood glucose. What will this test show? It means that your pancreas is working and producing insulin. If the test is not normal, then the person should consult a doctor for diabetes. However, most people would have known this a long time ago because of a problem with insulin production. Most likely, this test would not be helpful.
Thyroxine (T4), and triiodothyronine (T3) thyroid hormones. This test will show the condition of the thyroid, as well as the function of the pituitary gland to produce thyrotropic hormone (as well as the function of the hypothalamus to synthesize thyroleiberin). If you are not obese (hypothyroidism) or Basidi disease (hyperthyroidism), the test will show you normal levels of thyroid hormones.
Cancer markers. This is a separate story. This test is used to detect recurrence of cancer. If you haven't had problems before, it's not particularly important either.
What does all this mean?
Unless you are clearly suffering from any pancreatic, thyroid, or cancer disease, do the above tests solely at your discretion to self-monitor your health.
Buying hgh. Buy from trusted suppliers is the only rule.
You will find different brands and forms of somatropin on the market.
For information on the brands, study everything yourself, or use the recommendations of experienced users.
Currently, there are two forms of somatropin: powder (lyophilized powder in 3-ml vials) and liquid. The packaging depends on the manufacturer.
Keep in mind that all growth hormone in 3ml vials is 99,999% Chinese human growth hormone, which is produced in the same factories, both official and semi-official. The difference is in the degree of purification from extraneous impurities due to the growth hormone production process.
Liquid hgh are officially registered brands, licensed, approved and clinically tested. They are essentially powdered growth hormone diluted in water with added preservatives and stabilizers.
There is also clandestine liquid somatotropin from Chinese raw materials, using the same preservatives and stabilizers according to the claims of "manufacturers".
What form of growth hormone should you use? Any form. Choose according to the price and the label.
A growth hormone with the necessary purification level and full content of the active ingredient will work equally well. Or it will have a bad effect if the raw material is not of proper quality.
Surely you could read that liquid growth hormone is 2-3 times more effective than powder hgh. The illegal product from China in powder form is really much worse than any European product by an order of magnitude. Under equal conditions there is absolutely no difference.
How can we evaluate the quality of human growth hormone without chromatography? You have to do a blood test for growth hormone. This is done after an injection of 5 ME or 10 ME after 4 hours.
What can you understand with an analysis?
You will understand the presence or absence of growth hormone. You can also roughly see if the amount of growth hormone is what the manufacturer says it is. You have to make some adjustments for weight, body constitution and other similar parameters.
Also, the IGF test is used to evaluate somatotropin function. Yes, it helps to determine the degree of sensitivity of the liver and tissues to growth hormone, but nothing more. IGF-1 is the most important mediator of growth hormone action, which is responsible for anabolism and muscle hyperplasia.
There is a legend that one brand of somatotropin strongly stimulates IGF-1 production and another brand does not stimulate it at all. This is possible if the "another brand" contains no active ingredient, or the raw material is of inadequate quality. If it is a complete growth hormone made of 191 amino acids, the effect on the body is always the same.
The production of IGF-1 is provided by the liver. Its state determines the degree of growth factor in the blood. If we take two people of approximately the same weight and constitution and start taking a growth hormone of the same brand in the same dosage, follow the caloric intake, food quality, etc., we will almost always get different test results for growth hormone and IGF-1. It's all about the body's genetic potential, the condition of the organs, the endocrine system, the sensitivity of the receptors and the presence or absence of any previous diseases. Even the highest quality and super pure growth hormone will not raise IGF-1 to the sky if the organism cannot react adequately.
Usually the body responds by increasing IGF-1 by about 5-6 days from the start of taking it. Depending on the characteristics of your body, it may take longer, 10-20 days or more.
Bacteriostatic water is mandatory to dilute powder hgh if you plan to store the drug in diluted form for more than 3 days. Store HP in dry or diluted form in the refrigerator at 2-8 degrees Celsius. Ready liquid form can be stored at room temperature, but it is better not to risk. Just keep somatotropin in the refrigerator.
How to calculate the dosage? It's very simple! Pour 1 ml of bactericidal water into a vial of 10 units to get a 1 ml solution with the amount of 10 units of growth hormone. We take a 1 ml insulin syringe with 100 divisions. If we need 5 units of hormone, we draw the solution to the 50 mark on the insulin syringe. If we need 3 units, we draw up to the 30 mark.
If you still have questions about the dosage, use our dosage calculator.
It is important to follow the rules of antisepsis. Wipe the cap of the bottle and the injection site with alcohol.
Start using human growth hormone with minimal dosages. In the first stages, use 2-3 IU once a day. Forget about huge doses of 10-20-30 IU at the beginning. It is important to understand that all injected exogenous growth hormone in such big doses will not be processed by your body. Only a small part will be taken up, and the rest will be fermented and broken down into amino acids. 15 IU of the 20 IU will not be actually used.
You should read about side effects like tunnel syndrome or water retention separately.
You should know about somatostatin, which is released when hgh is administered externally by the feedback principle. You are unlikely to have heard this information before.
Somatostatin suppresses all processes in the digestive tract.
Somatostatin suppresses hypothalamic secretion of somatotropin-releasing hormone and anterior pituitary secretion of somatotropic hormone and thyroid hormone.
Somatostatin inhibits the secretion of various hormone-active peptides and serotonin produced in the stomach, intestines, liver, and pancreas. It reduces the secretion of insulin, glucagon, gastrin, pancreozymin, secretin, cholecystokinin, vasoactive intestinal peptide, and insulin-like growth factor-1.
Somatostatin also causes inhibition of glucose and protein absorption, decrease of blood flow in abdominal organs, decrease of gallbladder contractility and suppression of intestinal peristalsis.
Together with a course of growth hormone, especially for 5ME+, the use of ipamorelin is essential. It blocks somatostatin as well as digestive enzymes and choleretic agents.
Otherwise constipation, heartburn, belching, and heaviness in the stomach will bother you constantly.
Many people have heard that it takes 2-3 months to get a clear effect from using growth hormone. If the somatotropin is of good quality, the effect will appear in a couple of weeks or earlier. Basically, you will see a fat burning effect and improved skin condition. After 2 weeks you will not get +10 kg of muscle and will not lose 20 cm in the waist. However, the result will be noticeable unambiguously. If it is not there, then you have bought something useless.
For those who want a rejuvenating and fat-burning effect, it is enough to take 2 milligrams per day.
Treatment of injuries and joint diseases with the help of growth hormone takes a long time. It takes more than one month of application to get a regenerative effect. The doses in this case should be small, 2-5Me per day. If you are willing to spend, you can try 5-10 milligrams.
Full disclosure of growth hormone potential requires a combination with thyroxine, but not triiodothyronine. The whole range of positive effects on the organism is synergistic in combination with T4, when there is a conversion of T4 into T3 against the background of increased GH content. It is the process of conversion of T4 to T3 that promotes anabolism and increased synthesis of IGF-1. After 2-3 weeks after you start taking hgh, start taking T4 in an amount of about 1 mcg per 1 kg of weight. By that time the intensity of thyroid work will decrease, and you will have to inject small amounts of T4 from outside (read more about the use of growth hormone, insulin, T4, and T3 in our other articles).
Growth hormone is always combined with anabolic to build muscle mass. In this case use your favorite combinations, but do not forget about testosterone. Long testosterone esters are the best choice when combining with growth hormone. Long testosterone esters aromatize well, and estrogen is just as necessary for the anabolic qualities of somatotropin as testosterone.
Aromatization should not be suppressed with aromatase inhibitors or anti-estrogens, except in cases with hypersensitivity to high estrogen levels and gynecomastia. A good addition to testosterone would be nandrolone decanoate. It exhibits progestin activity, which also contributes to the manifestation and enhancement of anabolic properties of human growth hormone. Dosages and combinations of anabolic steroids are a separate topic. Use your favorite combinations of anabolic, but be sure to use flavored long esters of testosterone.
That's all for now.
