Steroid Cycle Guide - HGH is a hormone that is in a natural way produced by our bodies. It is synthesized and secreted by cells in the anterior pituitary gland located at the base of the mind. hGH stimulates many metabolic processes in cells. hGH impacts protein, fat, carbohydrate and mineral metabolism. The major role of HGH is to stimulate the liver to secrete Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-I). IGF-I stimulates production of cartilage cells, resulting in bone growth and also plays a key role in muscle protein synthesis and organ growth.
Many pro athletes in every sports use HGH. No wonder the players of today are far bigger, faster, and stronger than they were 20 years ago. Heck, just look at how they are able to recover from injuries faster.

Human growth hormone may cause a number of side effects for healthy adults, including: Carpal tunnel syndrome, Swelling in the arms and legs, Joint and muscle pain, For men, enlargement of breast tissue (gynecomastia). And may also contribute to conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease.
In addition, long term exogenous HGH use has been linked to organ growth. Ever see professional bodybuilders with 4% bodyfat and 8 pack abs, but their stomachs that look like beer bellies? Well, that’s growth hormone abuse showing itself (growth gut).
The recommended dose of human growth hormone (HGH) is 1-5 I.U. every day when administered via a 1 mL disposable syringe. A dose of 4-8 IUs per day is advised to those looking for lean muscle gains and improving body composition. The addition of insulin, testosterone and low-dose T3 is highly recommended to reap the optimum advantages of human growth hormone.
HGH is safe for women at lower dosages, and they can see some nice results concerning increased energy levels, fat loss, healthier skin and wrinkle reduction. A good HGH dosage for women without major side effects ranges from 0.5 – 1.5 IU’s per day.
HGH makes for a good drug to stack with AAS. Plus, because this compound doesn’t shut down your natural testosterone production like anabolic steroids, you can run it far longer. It’s recommended that you use HGH for a minimum of 20 weeks to get solid bodybuilding results. A HGH only cycle is best done every day for the first two months to elevate IGF-1 levels and then the dosage scheduled can be rearranged to five days a week. Injectable HGH may be used once or twice a day for a normal cycle of 5-8 months in length. Of course, many advanced bodybuilders will stack anabolic steroids, HGH and insulin for maximum growth potential.
