Throughout this introductory guide, you’ll gain a basic understanding of human growth hormone and how to intelligently use it to improve your overall level of fitness. Rough estimates of 80% of professional athletes have at the very least experimented with or actively use HGH as a compliment to their training regime, but it must be used with caution. When following our HGH cycle directions properly, you’ll be able to see results no matter what your fitness goals are – fat loss, toning and muscle mass gain for example.
What is HGH and is it natural?
HGH (Human Growth Hormone), also sometimes referred to as rHGH or simply gh, is naturally produced in the pituitary gland. Its name is quite self explanatory; the hormone is responsible for the growth of bone, muscle and other tissues. When we are young, it is what causes natural development, but at later points in life, its natural production slows down and drops off in our 60s. As we become adults, HGH takes on the role of maintaining our muscles and regulating metabolism – these are the 2 functions that make increasing your HGH levels so valuable in improving fitness.
How do you increase HGH levels?
Younger people looking to take advantage of HGH are in luck since they don’t need as much of a boost to see its benefits. Adding a couple grams of Arginine and Glutamine to your supplement program gives a significant boost in HGH for young people, but for truly remarkable results, you’ll want to use the lyophilized powder form of pure HGH.
HGH should be handled with care in an area protected from light and heat. It’s best to just keep it in the fridge to be safe. Lyophilized powder must be reconstituted with a base to be used for injection – most commonly bacteriostatic water (BW), but sometimes sterile water or liquid vitamin B12 are used.
Bacteriostatic water is almost the same as sterile water, only with 0.9% Benzyl alcohol added. This is the recommended method since this alcohol prevents bacteria from growign in the water, making your solution safe for use for up to 3 weeks. Generally, 1mg is about 3 IUs and bodybuilders will use an average of 2 to 5 IUs per day. However, as a beginner, you should start out with 2 IUs in your first 4 weeks and add an extra 0.5IU per injection each following week.
How long should your HGH cycle be?
We recommend you consult with a personal trainer or trained professional to create a personalized plan and follow their HGH cycle directions meticulously. HGH cycles are entirely dependent on body type, age and training regime of an individual. HGH affects the body differently at different ages, as discussed earlier. Average cycle lengths are roughly 50 days and the time between cycles is typically 20 to 40 days.
Unfortunately, a certain number of HGH users will quickly realize their bodies are allergic to the injections, in which case you should immediately stop your supplements. Side effects of allergies may not come up immediately, so it’s important to closely monitor for potential symptoms in your first week of dosage.
