Growth hormone, or somatotropic growth hormone, is a polypeptide anabolic hormone of the human body consisting of 191 amino acids. It is produced by the anterior portion of the pituitary under the control of somatoliberin and somatostatin. Its main function in the body is to ensure the growth and development of the whole body during the puberty period. That is why its production peaks in teenage time. However, this hormone is also important for adults, as it is responsible for regeneration and renewal of the musculoskeletal system, cartilages, joints and ligaments.
Thanks to a huge number of useful properties, this hormone has found wide application in bodybuilding and professional sports. It will be of greatest benefit to those on dry and sitting on a tough diet. His anticatabolic abilities will help cope with the regime and help protect muscle tissue from destruction. However, it should not be forgotten that HR can disrupt potassium-sodium balance by delaying sodium in the body, which can cause water delay in the body.
How to use?
The intake of growth hormones depends largely on the purposes of use. Okay, a solo course will be suitable for “drying.” For other cases it is advisable to take in combination with other drugs. It is best to start with a minimum therapeutic dosage of 4-5 U anyway. in day. It is better to use growth hormone in the morning, either immediately after night sleep or immediately after training, this is due to the fact that after night rest, blood glucose level is minimal.
The standard course of administration of this preparation lasts from 3 to 6 months. Taking it less makes no sense, as no visible results will be obtained. Due to the fact that somatropine does not best affect the thyroid gland, it is better to accompany it with a course of tyroxine in a dose of 25 mcg per day. This will make the hormone course safer for your body. Also when taking growth hormones, anabolic steroids can be used, the main thing is to correctly select them and strictly observe the dosage of application.
