Somatropin is by far the most highly desired hormonal compound the world over, as its desire runs high not only in the performance enhancing world but in the lives of many everyday people who could care less about performance enhancement in the traditional sense. While Somatropin is its official name more than likely you know it as Human Growth Hormone or simply HGH. Commonly referred to as the Fountain of Youth by that label alone it should be easy to see why so many desire it. However, the benefits of Somatropin, while greatly anti-aging run far deeper and as it is generally side-effect friendly it is without question nearly a perfect hormonal compound.
Human Growth Hormone is a protein based peptide hormone produced naturally in the human body regulated by the hypothalamus in the brain. Actual production itself takes place in the pituitary but it is the hypothalamus that regulates how much will be produced in the end by the amount of Human Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (HGHRH) and Somatostatin (SST) it releases thereby stimulating production. However, the amount of release will largely be dictated by individual overall health, as well as age; production will inevitably decline as one advances in years.
As by its nature HGH plays a key role in cell repair and regeneration as well as production throughout the body, thereby providing increased productivity and efficiency within the cells for work to be done. In short, HGH structurally enhances the cells of the body as well as provides new cells in order to promote the desired task responsible to the cell(s). Moreover, HGH greatly enhances the rate in-which amino acids are converted, thereby again increasing performance within the body. With these traits metabolic efficiency is highly regulated as the hormone plays a key role in how body-fat is utilized as an energy source. However, the benefits in-terms of the importance of the hormone do not end there as by its cell structure enhancing and protein efficiency the healing process is greatly enhanced playing an active role in the process.
While only a brief overview of the hormone as it pertains to its functions within the body this should give you a fairly good idea as to why Somatropin is so highly desirable, for when HGH levels are increased beyond what it naturally produced the aspects for which it is responsible for are enhanced. While Somatropin is HGH the name refers to the synthetic version or HGH produced by recombinant DNA technology to be precise. While Somatropin is the synthetic form of the hormone, once present in the body the body will not distinguish one from the next; naturally occurring HGH and Somatropin will perform the same tasks in the same manner. Look at it like water; you can drink water from a spring or out of a bottle and as long as it isnt full of bacteria you have the same product at hand.
By supplementing with Somatropin the benefits in-which may be obtained are truly great. Largely the benefits provided by Somatropin include but are not limited to:
- Muscle Growth
- Increased Fat Burning
- A Leaner and Tighter Physique
- Increase Recovery Time
- Healthier Skin
- Age Reduction (staving off the effects of age)
- Muscle, Joint and Bone Repair
- Decreases Stress
- Improved Focus & Clarity of Thought
- Increased Energy
Based on the benefits that are in most all cases guaranteed to occur the most obvious question is why wouldnt you supplement with this amazing hormone? When we begin to look at the aspects revolving around side-effects then the question becomes obvious yet again, as side-effects are in most all cases non-existent when Somatropin is used responsibly.
Somatropin is not only side-effect friendly it is in most all cases very well-tolerated in both men and women; a claim not too many hormonal compounds can make and a claim no hormonal compound can make to the extent of Somatropin. Nevertheless, there can be negative adverse side-effects; although rare they will be highly dose dependent, meaning, those who take too much will be more susceptible to such affects. Such side-effects may include:
- Water Retention
- Bone Growth
- Carpal Tunnel
- Tingling of the Hands & Feet
While slight water retention is the most common and tingling is very common in performance enhancing level doses, bone growth and carpal tunnel are only concerns when such doses far exceed personal responsibility.
Unfortunately Somatropin is a very expensive hormone to obtain and as it is in very high demand it is often counterfeited. In the performance enhancing world it is by far the most commonly counterfeited hormonal compound on the market; so much so that there is more garbage on the market than true blue Somatropin. Further, there are many what one may call partial HGH or many times referred to as peptide fragments based on the HGH hormone. Lets be clear, most of these are garbage and a complete waste of money; most of these fragments are akin to buying a hamburger with no meat; thats not a hamburger. If you desire the benefits of HGH be it for performance enhancement or a boost in your overall quality of life only Somatropin will provide such an end.
For most the main question regarding Somatropin is how much to take in-order to provide benefit(s) and remain safe. Most therapeutic level doses will be in the 1iu per day range and quite often as it pertains to women a dosing of 1iu per day is all they need even in-terms of performance enhancement with 2iu being optimal for superior results. For the average man, 4iu per day will prove to be the perfect dose, providing all the metabolic benefits and muscularity and healing attributes associated with it. However, inevitably many will want more; especially when we enter the realm of physique sports. While 5iu or 6iu per day may provide a slight added bump it will largely be inconsequential as massive changes will not occur until you reach double digit doses. However, as discussed, once you enter into high Somatropin doses you open the door for negative side-effects. By-in-large most all men, even those who are in the physique world will find 4iu per day to be nearly perfect. It is important to note, for both men and women to receive any benefit Somatropin must be used for an extended period of time; results will not appear overnight. Most will find 16 weeks of use to be the minimum with 6-8 months at a time to be far more effective and efficient.
