Here’s a little background on how HGH was developed. The first growth hormone samples were extracted from cows and human pituitary glands. However, it was later found that this manufacturing method enables the transmission of rare “mad cow” disease to patients.
So, in the next few years, a synthetic growth hormone molecule was developed. It was made by genetically engineering DNA of E.coli bacteria. The bioidentical form of human growth hormone was thus developed.
The production method with few changes is the same now. Technologies are advancing. HGH is becoming easier and easier to produce and is getting more affordable every year.
