Growth hormone (GH, growth hormone, STH, HGH, growth hormone, somatropin) is a peptide hormone of the anterior pituitary gland, which is used in sports to form muscle relief.
Growth hormone can be used both separately from other drugs, and used in combination, for example with anabolic steroids. Consider the course of the drug for men:
The duration of the course can vary from three to six months. This is the optimal time, which is enough to feel a noticeable effect. A longer course is addictive and stops showing proper results. Moreover, some side effects may occur and may be required after a course of therapy (this mainly applies to the use of poor-quality drugs with poor purity, after which antibodies can even be produced with their own growth hormone);
The first week of the course should begin with a dosage of 5 units / day of the drug. It is rational to make one injection in the morning, immediately after waking up. This time is most favorable for an injection, since the concentration of glucose in the blood is at a low level;
The first week of the course is experimental. If during this time the reaction of the body to the introduction of growth hormone is adequate, then the dosage can be increased to 10 units / day. It is optimal to divide the injection into two, 5 units per 1 time. The first administration is also after sleep, the second after training, or in the middle of the day, during low blood sugar (at least 1-1.5 hours before meals, and after 1.5-2 hours after meals). Or before bedtime;
Sports nutrition and specialized training will help you get the most out of your course
When using growth hormone, such side effects as nausea, headache, hyperglycemia, increased intracranial pressure, development of diabetes mellitus, excessive growth of cartilage bones can occur, which leads to enlargement of facial features and an increase in the lower and upper jaw.
