Somatropin is a synthetic 191 amino acid chain sequence rhGH produced via Protein Secretion Technology or Mouse-Cell Technology. Both methods create HGH that is exactly the same as GH which is produced in every human body. While GH therapy has been practiced since 1958, synthesizing GH into rhGH did not take place until 1981. Since this advance interest and purchases of rhGH have increased significantly over the years.
Somatropin is typically used to treat growth disorders in children and hormone deficiency in adults. Natural GH is depleted during the aging process of all people, particularly those in their 30’s whose natural GH drops off significantly as they age. GH levels may be as low as 10% of what they once were in youth by the time you reach your 60’s. Recently Somatropin has had great use and success in the body building circuit but many people may benefit from other effects of this supplemental treatment.
In 1990, Dr. Daniel Rudman conducted a study on Effects of Human Growth Hormone in Men over 60 Years Old which was published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Twelve men aged 61 – 81 received human growth hormone therapy for 6 months in a double-blind placebo study. Those who received the placebo continued to age naturally while those who received human growth hormone therapy injections experienced what appeared to be a reversal of the aging process.
Great care and professional consultation should be sought before starting a supplement program including seeking advice and discussing your personal health history with your doctor. Always check with your doctor or health care professional before starting or adding any supplements to your daily routine.
Somatropin has been shown to increase muscular hypertrophy and hyperplasia. Anabolic steroids can only enlarge existing muscles but Somatropin has been shown to increase the number of muscle cells. Using rhGH results in stimulating IGF-1 production in the liver. IGF-1 is a hormone that promotes cell growth in just about every cell in the body particularly muscle, cartilage and bones. It also stops insulin from storing glucose in cells so your body burns fat for energy which will result in weight loss.
Potential benefits of Somatropin may but are not limited to:
- Leaner body/muscle mass
- Faster recovery after working out
- Cardiovascular improvement
- Organ repair/regeneration
- Fat Loss
- Smoother skin
- Stronger bones
- Greater libido
- Higher energy output
- Lower blood pressure
- Enhanced immune system
- Better cholesterol levels
- Increased bone density
- Stimulated cell growth
Potential Side Effects
Negative side effects fro Somatropin are rare. Persons with Prader-Willi syndrome have reported lung and breathing problems while taking Somatropin. Though this side effect is not common, you should call your doctor immediately if you have any breathing problems.
Acromeglia – This is an abnormal bone growth disease. While rhGH Somatropin cannot cause this, those who are pre-disposed to this disease can see it progress faster if taking rhGH.
Extended belly – This side effect has been reported in rare instances. It usually occurs when the product is not used as directed.
Hypoglycemia – This is the opposite of diabetes. The body produces too much insulin and not enough glucose. Use of rhGH produces increased levels of insulin in the body and not enough glucose.
Other side effects may include but are not limited to:
- Pain or swelling at injection site
- Muscle ache or pain
- Joint pain
- Allergic reactions
If you experience any adverse side effects, no matter how mild, while taking Somatropin seek the medical advice of a professional or your personal doctor.
Always follow the recommended dosage for any supplement based on the information provided with your product and/or in conjunction with your health professional or doctor. Each person may be using a supplement for different desired effects and/or reasons.
For body builders and those looking to increase lean muscle mass 4 – 8 IU’s per day is common for a 5 to 8 month cycle. Persons taking Somatropin supplement for anti-aging and general health can get by on 1 – 3 IU’s per day. When starting it is best to start with the minimum and ramp up to the desired amount so you can monitor effects.
A suggested ramp up plan to follow might look like this:
- Weeks 1 – 2: 1 IU, 1x per day
- Weeks 3 – 4: 2 IU’s, 1x per day
- Weeks 5 – 8: 3 IU’s, 1.5 IU’s 2x per day
Additional guidelines for Somatropin dosage vary depending on your intended purpose.
