How to Use HGH
The proper HGH can only be administered through intramuscular or subcutaneous injections, and it is supplied as a lyophilised powder. If you are offered any other form of HGH then it isn't the real thing.
It's important to store HGH correctly as it is fragile and needs protection from heat and light. The best way to store it is in a fridge that has a temperature of between 2°C to 6°C both before and after it has been reconstituted. There are only two products that don't require continual refrigeration and these are SAIZEN and JTPN as these can be shipped without refrigeration, but must be stored in a refrigerator once they have been reconstituted or mixed. All brands of HGH need to be refrigerated once they have been reconstituted, a process that involves mixing the lyophilised powder with the bacteriostatic water.
Instructions for injecting HGH
Before beginning, make sure your hands are scrupulously clean by thoroughly washing them with soap and water. It's best to carry out your injections in a clean, well lit room with a hard surface. Check you have everything you need to reconstitute and measure HGH. This should include your box of HGH containing one bottle of bacteriostatic water, and one bottle of somatropin. You will also need a mixing syringe, and HGH administering syringes and a sharps container for safe disposal of the needles. The steps for injecting yourself are as follows:
- Remove the cap or break off the top of your bacteriostatic water vial, and using the mixing syringe carefully remove 3.0 cc. Double check this procedure by making sure that 3.0 cc has been removed from the vial of bacteriostatic water.
- Remove the cap from your ampule or vial of somatropin. Using your mixing syringe slowly insert the bacteriostatic water into the ampule as a rate slightly faster than a drop by drop pace.
- Once all the bacteriostatic water has been inserted into your ampule, then slowly and carefully turn the bottle around until the liquid mixes with the powder, taking care not to shake it as this could damage the protein mixture.
- Once the mixing is complete, the resulting liquid should be clear without any signs of the powder. The liquid should not be cloudy.
- Prepare an administering syringe through removing the plastic caps from the administering syringes or small insulin syringe.
- Carefully insert the administering syringe into the mixture of bacteriostatic water and growth hormone, and slowly but steadily extract the liquid until you can read 40.0 units on the syringe, as this is equal to 2 IUs of HGH.
- Inject the extracted liquid containing the growth hormone into your inner thigh or stomach.
- Make sure you dispose of the mixing and administering syringes in the sharps container.
- Store the bacteriostatic water mixed with the growth hormone in your refrigerator. While it's important to store it at a temperature between 2°C and 6°C, it's equally important to make sure this liquid never freezes.
- Place all your HGH ampoules or bottles in your refrigerator, and make sure it is running at the correct temperature. The reconstituted HGH solution will last for up to 14 days provided it is kept in the refrigerator.
It is recommended that you take your HGH last thing at night before you go to sleep, as this will help enhance the overall efficacy of therapy.
Reconstituting and Measuring HGH
Your ampule or vial of HGH will contain lyophilised powder, and comes with a bottle of bacteriostatic water so it can be mixed. If you look at the vial, it should state the amount of powder contains in either milligrams or Units (IUs). If the amount is in milligrams then 1 mg = 2.7IUs, but it's generally stated that 1 mg = 3 IUs which would mean that 1.33 mg = 4 IUs. The bacteriostatic water is added to the lyophilised powder, although some people will use liquid vitamin B-12 to reconstitute the powder in preparation for their injection. It depends on how quickly you intend to use up your growth hormone.
Bacteriostatic water is sterile and contains 0.9% benzyl alcohol, which prevents anything from growing in the water. This ensures the water is safe for injection for approximately three to three and a half weeks. If the amount of growth hormone contained in your ampule or vial is sufficient for several weeks then it is best to use bacteriostatic water to dilute it, and most users will finish the vial long before bacteria has a chance to grow in the reconstituted HGH.
- Use some alcohol to swab the top of the bacteriostatic water and the top of your vial of HGH.
- Use a 3 cc syringe with either a 25 or 23 gauge needle to draw out your bacteriostatic water or whichever dilutent you prefer to use. It doesn't matter how much you draw up, but it is essential to make sure you know exactly how much has been used. For this reason it's best to pick an amount that makes measuring easy. For example:
- If you use 1ml or 1cc per 10IU vial of HGH, then each 10 mark on a U100 will be equal to 1 IU of HGH.
- If you use 2ml or 2cc per 10 IU vial of HGH, then each 20 mark on a U100 syringe will be equal to 1IU of HGH.
- If you use 3ml or 3cc per 10 IU of HGH, then each 30 mark on a U100 syringe will be equal to 1 IU of HGH.
Measuring out Reconstituted HGH
- Use a U100 insulin syringe to draw out the correct amount of HGH and to inject it. You should already know how many IUs are contained in your HGH vial along with the amount of dilutent used. It's just a simple matter of division as listed below.
- 1 ml = 1cc = 100 IUs
- Look at the number of IUs of HGH on the label of lyophilised powder. It is usually either 4 or 10 IUs, and divide that into the amount of bacteriostatic water or other dilutent used. For example:
- If you used 1ml or cc of water, with a 10 IU vial of HGH, then you already know that 1ml or cc = 100 IUs. The next step is to divide the 100 IUs (the amount of the water) by 10 IUs as this is the amount of HGH, which will give you a figure of 10.
- If you now look at your U100 insulin syringe, then you should see it is marked out in series of 10. Each unit of 10 on the syringe will give you 1 IU of HGH, so if you wish to take 2 IUs you simply draw out enough reconstituted liquid up to the 20 mark.
- Read your vial to see how much HGH you have; it's likely to be either 4IU or 10IU
- Make a note of how much dilutent is added to the HGH
- The next step is simple and involves dividing the amount of dilutent in units, by the amount of HGH in units
- This will show you the measurement marked on your U100 insulin syringe that will be equal to each unit of the growth hormone
- Multiply this result by the number of units you wish to inject, and this will give you a final number of the amount you need to draw out in your syringe
Now you know how to reconstitute and measure HGH, so the next step is to look at the strategies for utilising this therapy to your advantage.
