Somatropin is nothing more than human growth hormone, a synthetic version created by humans in laboratory conditions. The hormone contributes to the growth and development of children; it is naturally produced by the pituitary gland. With age, there is a loss of muscle mass due to decreased levels of HGH in the body. Somatropin is used in most cases by athletes to increase and develop muscle mass, but in some cases this product is assimilated with the “elixir of youth” which means that it is used for anti-aging treatments. In fact, somatropin was created for medicinal purposes, namely to help children in the process of growth and development, but also for adults suffering from muscle loss disorders. Somatropin Hilma Biocare comes in the form of a sterile white powder that dissolved with bacteriostatic water is administered subcutaneously or intramuscularly. We can also find on market Somatropin Liquid Hilma Biocare, which means that the bottle already contains somatropin dissolved in bacteriostatic water, ready for administration. This product is recombined, which means that it is not made of human or animal tissue. Each vial contains somatropin – 3.33 mg (approx. 10 IU) lyophilized with mannitol – 90 mg, sodium phosphates (manobasic and diabase) – 3.4 mg and glycine – 3.4 mg.
Somatropin has the following function in the body:
• in young people who still have skeletal growth completed, growth hormone causes bone growth in length;
• activates the biosynthesis of protein and stops its breakdown;
• promotes the breakdown of adipose tissue;
• increases the glucose content in the body, growth hormone is an insulin antagonist;
• accelerates the growth of many internal organs;
• promotes the absorption of calcium and other macro- and micro elements, vitamins, due to which the bone tissue is strengthened, the condition of the hair, skin integument, nail plates improves;
• increases the body’s resistance to infectious diseases;
• accelerates the healing of damaged tissues.
How it works
The hormone is composed of amino acids and is secreted by the pituitary gland. The hormone reaches its maximum level in the blood approximately one hour after we fall asleep, at the same time it is released every 3-5 hours. Once we supplement the body with somatropin, we will notice a constant and high level of HGH in the blood. Its positive effects are diverse and beneficial, both for athletes and for ordinary people, it strengthens both muscle mass and bones. During the use of Somatropin muscle mass will increase faster due to increased absorption of proteins in muscle cells. Another positive effect is that it releases fat from fat cells into the blood to be burned. With somatropin we get what every athlete wants, to develop muscle mass, and at the same time to burn the fat layer. It also improves sleep, strengthens bones and joints, increases libido.
The optimal dose is 4-8 iu / day. The injections of Somatropin should be done slowly subcutaneously in the abdomen, backing 8 cm from the navel. This drug is recommended to be administered on an empty stomach or before sleep, in this case the injection will be more effective. The optimal interval between the next administration of this drug should be at least 4 hours. Somatropin can be administered both in the phases of definition and in the muscle mass accumulation phases, it can also be taken concomitantly with both oral and injectable steroids. In the phases of muscle mass accumulation it combines wonderfully with anabolic and androgenic steroids, so you can opt for your favorite combination, but do not forget about testosterone. The best combination of Somatropin are with testosterone esters (Enanthate, Cypionate or Sustanon).
Is contraindicated to administer Somatropin if observed malignant neoplasms, diabetes, dysfunction of the pituitary gland and adrenal glands, period of pregnancy and breastfeeding, age younger than 25 years. Somatropin promotes rapid muscle growth, helps to create a clear muscle profile, but before starting to use it, you need to make sure that there are no contraindications to this drug.
By administer Somatropin there are not so many side effects, but in cases of overdoses or due to problems with the hypothalamic-pituitary system can cause undesirable effects, especially if the drug is administered for more than six months. Some of side effects are: hypertension, vertigo, headache, nausea, swelling of the hands and feet, lowering the level of glucose or it’s increase, diabetes mellitus and hypothyroidism, water retention in the body, gynecomastia.
As a minus of this product we can deduce that Somatropin is a very expensive drug and not everyone can afford to buy it. Given that it is one of the most effective and expensive products, there is a risk of buying a counterfeit product. Somatropin 100iu by Hilma Biocare is definitely an original one because it has undergone many laboratory tests before being marketed.
