HGH (Human Growth
The most potent anti-aging hormone.
A natural substance
produced by the pituitary gland in the brain, HGH controls muscle and bone growth
and reduces the amount of fat circulating in the body. Again, combined with exercise
it causes muscle growth.
Often abbreviated to HGH, this hormone as its name
suggests it is responsible for growth during puberty. The remarkable clinical
action of HGH has meant it is now a front line treatment in the battle against
aging. This is because HGH levels dramatically decline in aging. Look at the chart
to see a figure depicting the decline of HGH levels with advancing age.
Daniel Rudman discovered in 1988 that when HGH was administered to his elderly
patients, that within several weeks they all noticed significant improvement.
The benefits included enhanced well being, lessened depression and over a few
months noted increased skin thickness and improved elasticity, as well as a decline
in fat cells and an increase in lean muscle mass.
Since then HGH manufacture
has improved and expanded to enable a significant decrease in cost, although it
still remains "not cheap." The correct chain length of this amino acid
is 191 and it is ONLY effective when taken as a subcutaneous injection.
physician's guidance and blood monitoring is essential on a program of hGH, and
as usual amounts of this hormone are highest in our early twenties and decline
rapidly as we age. Physicians administering HGH for preventative/ anti-aging purposes
utilize in the region of 0.01mg to 0.02mg of HGH per Kg of body weight (that's
2.2 lbs.) per week. This is injected subcutaneously (just under the skin) divided
into 3 to 5 injections per week.
the precise protocol has not been confirmed, most of the physicians we deal with
adopt this type of program. However, it is important to ensure that blood levels
of HGH are monitored before and during the program and that a full check-up by
an Anti-Aging Physician is performed before the course of HGH injections begin.

Human growth hormone supplements decline in frequency and sometimes
stop for a period once the patient has reached a IGF1 blood plasma test equivalent
to that of a 21 to 31 year old, again physicians differ on the line, some advocate
early twenties, others early thirties measures.
We are now providing the
Serono Human Growth Hormone called Saizen ®. This product has some advantages
in shipping. Firstly it is stable at room temperature (before the product is constituted),
and it also lasts longer once constituted (when it has to then be kept in a fridge).
Once constituted, the product should be discarded after 30 days.
below is the translation of the manufacturer's insert. It is provided under the
supplying company's terms and conditions and should not replace the advice of
your personal physician.
SAIZEN ® 1.33 mg
bottle with lyophilised powder contains:
Somatropin .........1.33 mg
to ......... 4 IU
Excipient ......... s.q.
The small ampoule of diluting
agent contains: 0.9% sodium chloride solution .........1 ml
main active ingredient of Saizen ® is Somatropin, a biosynthetic human growth
hormone produced from mammal cells through genetic engineering. It contains 191
amino acids, in identical sequence to that of the natural hypophysiary hormone.
Saizen ® brings about an increase in the average growth rate by means of Somamedins
or growth factors similar to insulin.
hypersensitivity to the active component in the product. Diabetes mellitus must
be considered as a relative contraindication. In subjects suffering from diabetes
mellitus, treatment should be carried out under strict medical and laboratory
supervision. Saizen ® must not be used when there are progression data of
a concomitant cerebral tumour.
Adverse side effects
and toxicological studies carried out with Saizen ® and pit-hGH have confirmed
that the safety of the recombinant product is similar to that of the natural growth
hormone, with no side effects produced by the drug itself. However, treatment
with human proteins can cause reactions as a result of hypersensitivity (such
as redness and itchiness in the area of the injection site), the formation of
antibodies with or without the attenuating effect of growth, or both.
a small number of patients, where short stature is due to a genetic defect (depletion
of the gene complex for hGH), Somatropin treatment can stimulate the production
of antibodies which attenuate growth in the majority of cases.
must be carried out under strict periodic medical supervision. Patients with a
deficiency of the growth hormone secondary to an intracraneal lesion should be
examined frequently in order to follow the progression or recurrence of the underlying
pathological process. Administering Saizen ® subcutaneously in the same site
over a prolonged period of time may cause lipoatrophy. This can be prevented if
the injection site is changed each time.
therapy with corticoids may inhibit the growth promoting effect of Somatropin.
Saizen ® can be administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously,
preferably at bedtime. The contents of one ampoule bottle must be reconstituted
with the diluting agent, by inserting the liquid into the ampoule bottle and gently
shaking it until it is completely dissolved. Do not shake it vigorously, as this
can cause a slight darkening of the solution.
® can be administered intramuscularly or subcutaneously, preferably at bedtime.
The dosage and method for administering Saizen ® must be adapted to the needs
of each patient.
Dosage: Follow your doctor's instructions
in the refrigerator at 2ºC to 8ºC. Do not freeze.
Do not use if the
seal has been broken.
Do not use after the expiry date.
Once the mixture
has been made, the product can be stored in the refrigerator at 2ºC - 8ºC.
