Taking HGH To Achieve Specific Goals: Tips And Best Practices

Due to the wide range of benefits, HGH is being used across many fields – sports, hormonal replacement therapy, weight loss, muscle building, and post-surgery recovery.



HGH is a compound that takes time to fully
kick in and show its effects.

So, you cannot expect amazing results after just a 1-month cycle. The minimal length of treatment is 3 months and the most common is 5-6 months. It’s usually better to run HGH for a longer period and on a lower dosage than the other way around.

Be aware of your natural HGH production.

For young people, it’s around 1.5 IU per day, for the elderly – 0.5-1 IU per day is equivalent. So, following the previous rule, make sure your dosage is enough, so you don’t waste HGH by using the dosage that is close to your natural production. Like with other hormones, exogenous growth hormone tends to suppress endogenous production, so the exogenous HGH doesn’t add up to your natural production. However, the regular HGH production restores 72 hours after the last HGH injection.

Split the daily dosage to maintain the stable
HGH levels.

HGH peaks in the blood within 2-3 hours after the injection. So, to get the most out of it, consider splitting the daily dosage into two injections – one
in the morning and one before bed.

Understand the role of HGH and IGF-1.

Many effects attributed to HGH are in fact mediated through IGF-1 – a byproduct of HGH. IGF-1 is responsible for protein synthesis – muscle
growth, skin improvement, and joint regeneration. IGF-1 is accumulated during the HGH cycle after the first 3-6 weeks and remains stable until you
stop taking HGH and gradually declines in the weeks after you stopped taking HGH.

Growth hormone itself is responsible for other effects, most notably – fat loss. So, in order to maximize it, you need to split the dosage and retain high HGH levels for as long as possible. It means that everyday protocol is essential. For IGF-1-related effects such as muscle gain, you can follow 5 days on, 2 days off, every other day, and everyday protocols depending on your budget and other reasons.
