to Safely Inject Human Growth Hormone
Growth Hormone is one of the most effective longevity treatments
available in America today. If you suffer from the effects of HGH
Deficiency, Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy can lead you far along
the path toward a longer and healthier life.
HGH Hormone Treatments are highly effective, many people are put off
by the idea of subjecting themselves to a daily injection. Although
you will be required to administer injections multiple times per
week, we would like to comfort you by reminding you that
self-administration of Human Growth Hormone is simple and relatively
of this article is to provide a general set of guidelines on how to
properly give yourself an HGH Shot. This guide will focus on the
simplest and most common method of HGH Administration, the
reconstitution and injection of Growth Hormone via needle and
syringe. Many pharmaceutical companies provide their own medical
equipment which has its own particular methodology. These pieces of
equipment are more expensive, but they do provide a number of unique
benefits in regard to ease-of-use.
we provide this guide as a source of helpful information, your
physician will also provide instructions, and answer any questions
you may have about injection protocol.
Human Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy is a relatively new medical
treatment, there is a large and growing contingency of individuals
which stand by the therapy as one of the most effective health and
longevity treatments available in the world today. HGH Injections
have the ability to improve physical and mental health in various
ways which benefit the entire body. Among the benefits of Human
Growth Hormone are:
Breakdown of Adipose Fat
Improved Recovery Time from Injury and Exercise
Memory and Cognitive Abilities
Human Growth Hormone is often abused for its ability to increase
physical stamina, improve bodybuilding results, and optimize energy
capacity, there is mounting evidence that outside sources of Human
Growth Hormone become increasingly beneficial to the human body as we
age of thirty, our natural production of Growth Hormone declines, and
we begin to experience the myriad of Symptoms of Human Growth Hormone
Even though Human Growth Hormone Injections are
not that difficult to self-inject, it is important understand the
official protocol for injection, because if HGH Shots are not
administered following these simple guidelines, it is possible to
severely reduce the effectiveness of therapy.
Human Growth Hormone?
people only understand HGH from two perspectives. Most people
understand that Human Growth Hormone is the chemical signal that the
human body produces during puberty that causes a child to grow. HGH
Hormone Replacement was first approved by the Food and Drug
Administration in 1959 for the treatment of Childhood Growth Hormone
Deficiency. For young patients with HGH Deficiency, Human Growth
Hormone injections have the ability to help these patients grow to a
normal Final Adult Height.
understand the second, more pernicious use of Human Growth Hormone
Injections as well. Beginning in the seventies and eighties, Human
Growth Hormone Shots began to be used by a growing number of
professional and Olympic Athletes in order to bolster physical
performance and aid them in their attempts to be the strongest and
fastest athletes in the world. Beginning in the early nineties, the
public, as well as the United States government, began to take
notice, leading to severe restrictions regarding the sale and usage
of Human Growth Hormone in an attempt to limit its use for purposes
not intended for health improvement.
HGH Legal for the Treatment of HGH Deficiency
although Human Growth Hormone Injections are not legal for use by
young and healthy patients, there is still a large portion of society
that qualifies for the immense benefits provided by HGH Hormone
Replacement Therapy. If you are over the age of thirty and you have a
clinically diagnosable deficiency of endogenous Human Growth Hormone,
you qualify for life-enhancing Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Human Growth Hormone is produced naturally by the anterior pituitary
gland, which is located near the base of the brain. HGH enhances
physical health primarily by increasing internal cellular metabolism,
as well as increasing rates of cell rejuvenation and multiplication.
allows the body to more efficiently protect itself from damage and
decay, while also enhancing the ability of the muscles and bones to
maintain and rebuild themselves by providing a steady stream of
nutrients. Human Growth Hormone has the ability to increase
physiological efficiency throughout the body. This optimizes organ
function, increasing overall health and drastically reducing
Injection: Easier Than It Seems
Human Growth Hormone Injection Therapy might seem like a complicated
ordeal, but after only a few injections, most patients find that HGH
Administration quickly becomes second nature. HGH Hormone Replacement
Therapy is injected via a method known as Subcutaneous Injection.
This means that the needle does not puncture completely into the
inner workings of the human body, but the needle only descends just
below the skin.
of injection is much easier than other forms of injection such as
Intramuscular Injection, making it both more painless and easier to
perform. Human Growth Hormone is injected into the body in a manner
which is incredibly similar to insulin. If you have a friend that
uses Insulin to protect his or her body against Diabetes, they will
tell you that subcutaneous injection is very easy to perform.
people think about injections, they think about intravenous
injections. These are the types of injections that make certain
people develop needle-phobia. There is no searching for veins when
using Subcutaneous HGH. There are a number of areas around the body
which are prime injection sites, and there is no specific target to
aim for once you have selected a location. Although it is a bit more
difficult, after a few injections, it won't be much more complicated
than constituting the solution and selecting a suitable patch of skin
Intramuscular Testosterone Injections : How to do them
is primarily delivered via Intramuscular Injection. In this form of
shot, the needle is injected through the skin and into hard muscle
tissue. There are many medications and vaccinations which are also
injected in this manner. Intramuscular Shots use larger needles than
Human Growth Hormone Injections, so the pain is slightly greater, but
is still generally not more than a modest stinging sensation.
Testosterone is different than Human Growth Hormone, because there
are multiple potential methods of Testosterone application outside of
gels, creams, and dermal sprays are all valid and effective methods
of Testosterone Application. To this date, HGH is only available via
injection. Human Growth Hormone is literally the most complex hormone
produced by the human body, and cannot easily or effectively pass
through the same physiological barriers as Testosterone or other
hormones. Human Growth Hormone cannot effectively break the barrier
of the skin.
HGH Only Effective as an Injection
cannot break nasal barriers, and the stomach digests Human Growth
Hormone, rendering it ineffective. Pill forms of HGH can actually be
dangerous over time, because the body breaks down the Growth Hormone
into component amino acids which are further digested and broken down
by the liver, which is very sensitive to fluctuations of these amino
The act of
self administration actually makes injections less painful, because
your hand is in control of the needle. The vast majority of patients
do not quit using Testosterone Injections because of needle anxiety,
and the proportion that end up quitting Growth Hormone Injections for
the same reason is even more miniscule.
to Inject Human Growth Hormone: A Simple Guide
order to prepare HGH for Injection, you will need a small set of
needle (Normally a 5/8 inch 25-27 gauge needle)
Human Growth Hormone
Never reuse needles. After being removed from packaging, needles
are very prone to contamination, and you put yourself at risk of
infection if you reuse your needles. Although the upper layers of the
skin are very resistant to infection, the subdermal layers of the
skin are not as well protected from outside dangers, and using a
tampered needle can put your health at risk. Only remove the cap from
your needle just before you plan on injecting your HGH.
The barrel of your syringe is a small tube made of
plastic which will hold your Reconstituted Human Growth Hormone. The
syringe is notched with measurements in order to allow you to easily
inject your exact dose of medication while minimizing error. The tip
of the syringe will have a cap in order to preserve the stability of
the contents throughout the steps of administration. In your effort
to inject Bio-Identical HGH, you will only use one syringe during the
syringe will be used to mix the lyophilized HGH with sterilized water
in order to rehydrate the Human Growth Hormone for injection.
Pharmaceutical Recombinant Human Growth Hormone comes exclusively in
Lyophilized Form. This means that the HGH is freeze dried in order to
increase its stability in transport and storage. Human Growth Hormone
is naturally a liquid, and in this form, the hormone is very
sensitive to tampering.
Growth Hormone Damaged Easily
hitting the side of the syringe too hard can upset the chemical
stability of the hormone, reducing its effectiveness. Liquid Human
Growth Hormone is even more sensitive to temperature variation. By
freeze-drying HGH, the hormone is rendered more stable, and can be
stored in a wider range of temperatures for a longer period of time
before the effectiveness of the medication begins to deteriorate.
Bacteriostatic Water? What is Sterilized Water?
Growth Hormone is reconstituted in water which is either sterilized
or Bacteriostatic. Sterilized water contains a small amount of sodium
chloride in order to help maintain the sterility of the liquid.
Bacteriostatic water contains a small amount of Benzyl alcohol in
order to further preserve the sterility of the liquid both before and
after reconstitution. Bacteriostatic water is generally used for
larger vials of Reconstituted Human Growth Hormone, and is not
necessary for smaller amounts of the hormone.
Almost all steps surrounding injection
protocol are necessary in order to minimize the risk of
contamination. Merely touching the tip of the needle against an
article of clothing has the capacity to greatly increase the risk of
contamination. These rules to prevent infection are non-negotiable.
When the rules are followed, HGH Injections are both safe and
effective, and there is no reason to subject yourself to risk which
is completely unwarranted.
Should I Prepare My HGH Injection?
place to prepare for Growth Hormone Administration is on a large,
flat surface which can be easily disinfected. If your bathroom
counter is large enough, this is the perfect area to prepare the
treatment, although the kitchen table, or any other similar surface
will also be acceptable. When choosing a location, make sure that the
area is well lit, so that you can easily see what you are doing.

administer your injection, especially when you are still getting used
to the procedure. It is also important to set up your staging area
somewhere where there is little outside interference. You need to

I Need Alcohol Swabs When Injecting HGH?
swabs are important, because you will use these swabs in order to
disinfect both your skin, and all surfaces which your needle WILL
make contact with, such as the top of your Human Growth Hormone Vial
and your syringe. Before you begin your routine for HGH
administration, collect all of the equipment you will need in order
to perform the injection. As soon as you have everything organized,
wipe the vial top with your alcohol swab in order to sterilize it. If
you make any physical contact before you pierce the top, be sure to
disinfect the top once again.
Supplies after HGH Injection
choose to cover the injection site after you complete your Growth
Hormone Administration, make sure you have your bandage and gauze
handy as well. Most patients find that they do not need to use these,
but you may feel more comfortable further protecting your body or
easing routine needle irritation by minimizing outside contact with
the area where you delivered the HGH Shot.
individuals may prefer to have their injections sometimes delivered
by a partner. If you are engaging in self-administration, there is no
inherent need for disposable gloves, but if another person will be
delivering your HGH injection, or you will be delivering a Growth
Hormone injection for a friend or family member, it is imperative
that you use gloves in order to minimize the risk of cross

injection? Is your staging area clean?
Wash your hands one more time in the sink, with hot

containing the HGH. Immediately set them aside to be thrown away. Use
an alcohol swab to disinfect the stoppers covering and protecting
both vials. After using the swab, set it aside for disposal as well.

syringe from its package, as well as the long, larger needle. The
syringe should have a cap on it. If so, remove this cap. If not, the
syringe has not been properly protected and you should not use it.
Take the syringe firmly and twist the needle onto the tip of the
syringe, without touching the end of the syringe or the end of the
needle. After attaching the needle to the syringe, remove the cap
from the tip of the needle. Do not dispose of the cap of the needle.

on the plunger of the syringe, injecting the one CC of air into the
container. This equalizes pressure in the vial, making the sterilized
water easier to draw in. While the plunger is still completely
injected, turn the vial of sterilized water upside down, holding the
syringe with one hand and the vial with the other. Make sure that the
tip of the needle is completely submerged.
point, draw in the sterilized water slowly until your syringe
contains one CC of the liquid. If you see bubbles of air within the
syringe, rap the side of the syringe lightly with your fingers in
order to agitate the bubbles upward. After trapping the air in the
tip of the syringe, depress the plunger and inject the air back
inside the vial. After you have ejected all air from the syringe,
carefully take the needle out of the vial, being careful not to make
contact with the tip of the needle.
will reconstitute the dehydrated Human Growth Hormone by mixing it
with the sterilized water within your syringe. Take the tip of the
needle at the end of your syringe and press it through the rubber cap
protecting your HGH dose. Your needle should press gently against the
outer wall of the HGH container. Depress the plunger and deliver the
sterilized water into the Growth Hormone vial. Release the sterilized
water slowly, so that it flows down the wall of the HGH Container.
injecting the sterilized liquid into the vial, remove the needle from
the rubber stopper and place the syringe to the side. Agitate the
mixture of sterilized water and Bio-Identical Human Growth Hormone,
gently mixing the two components together into a single solution. It
is important to do this with care, so that you do not damage the HGH
as it becomes rehydrated. Mix in a slow and circular motion. Take the
syringe and retract the plunger once again, taking air into the
syringe. Pierce the cap upon the vial of Human Growth Hormone with
on the plunger in order to inject air, building the pressure inside
of the container. Just as before, this is to make it easier to draw
solution. Draw the plunger back, pulling your Human Growth Hormone
dose out of the vial. After you draw your dose, make sure that you
have ejected all air from the syringe, then pull the needle out and
sit the syringe down on the hard, flat surface so that the needle
points upward and does not make contact with anything around it.
the needle cap and place it back onto the tip of the large needle.
After doing so, remove the needle from the tip of the syringe and
place the needle aside for disposal. Take the smaller administration
needle and carefully twist it onto the tip of the syringe. Again,
make sure that there are no air bubbles inside the syringe. If there
are, gently press down on the plunger until any air present in the
syringe is evacuated. At this point, it's time to inject!
location you will use for injection. The easiest spot to engage in
self-injection is into the stomach, but not immediately in the
vicinity of the belly button. After selecting the location, take a
new alcohol swab and disinfect the area where you plan to inject. Let
the area dry through contact with the air.
opposite hand and gather up a patch of skin and squeeze it so that it
raises slightly. Take your primary hand and lift the syringe. Steady
your hand and position it directly over your raised skin. If you
have pinched a one square inch area of skin, aim the needle at a
forty-five degree angle. If you have a two inch square area of skin
pinched, aim the needle at ninety degrees, perfectly perpendicular to
skin quickly and completely with your needle, which will breach the
sub-dermal layer beneath the skin. After quickly inserting the
needle, inject the HGH Solution slowly. After you have released the
dose of Growth Hormone, pull the needle out swiftly, yet carefully.
After you have pulled the needle out of your skin, place the syringe
to the side and wipe the injection site with another alcohol swab in
order to provide the area with one last round of disinfection.
that you dispose of all materials that are intended for single use,
such as needles. All needles should be thrown away into an approved
SHARPS container. Never throw needles in the trash can. If your
Growth Hormone vial still contains reconstituted Growth Hormone, take
the vial to your refrigerator and store it properly, and only keep
the Rehydrated HGH as long as recommended before disposing of it.
Never release air from the needle after you have injected the
administration needle into the skin. This can cause bruising,
hematoma, or tissue damage.
Do not massage the area where you injected the Bio-Identical HGH.
This may increase the rate at which the injected Human Growth Hormone
processes into the body.
