ZPtropin is the brand name of the ZPHC Human Growth Hormone.
Growth hormone is a polypeptide hormone consisting of 191 amino acids. It is produced by the human pituitary gland and is released during appropriate stimulations (for example: exercise, stress, sleep, irritation, low blood sugar). It is important to understand that the Growth Hormone produced as a result of these stimulations does not have a direct effect on the body, but only stimulates the release of insulin-like growth factors and somatomedins into the blood, which then start to do their job. The problem is that the liver can only produce a limited amount of these substances. And if the Hormone is injected from the outside, it only induces the liver to produce and release these substances, without having a direct effect on the body.
The action of Growth Hormone on the body is diverse. Firstly, it has a strong anabolic effect and promotes increased protein synthesis, which is expressed in muscle hypertrophy (increase in muscle cell size) and muscle hyperplasia (increase in their number). The last property of Growth Hormone is unique. Anabolic steroids do not have a similar effect. This is probably the reason why growth hormone is called the most powerful anabolic hormone. Secondly, somatotropic hormones have a strong effect on the fat burning process. It intensively "burns" fat, which allows the athlete to consume more calories. Third, and often overlooked, growth hormone strengthens connective tissue, tendons, bones, and cartilage, which is probably one of the main reasons for the incredible strength gains that some athletes experience. Some bodybuilders and powerlifters are convinced that in this way Growth Hormone protects them from injuries, that's why they usually increase dramatically the working weights. In addition, the increase in bones, cartilage, tendons and internal organs makes the athlete REALLY MASSIVE.
How to take Growth Hormone? The usual option for athletes is subcutaneous injections, which are administered daily. The dosage of top athletes fluctuates around 8-24 IU of Growth Hormone per day. Since the half-life of Growth Hormone is less than an hour, many athletes prefer to divide the daily dose into two parts, which are administered in the morning and in the evening before bedtime - this time is considered optimal.
Although some athletes swear that they have achieved amazing results by taking just 2 IU of Growth Hormone daily. If you are serious about working with this drug, you should still count on at least 4 U per day. Growth hormone should either be taken in large quantities, or not taken at all, because in a small dose it simply will not work. As for the duration of the cycle, it should be at least six weeks and can last several months. It is believed that the risk of side effects increases if the duration of use exceeds six months. The effect of Growth Hormone does not decrease several weeks after the start of administration, so you should not increase the dosage, as is customary with steroids. The positive properties of Growth Hormone also lie in the fact that the strength and volume of muscles achieved with its help, as a rule, do not decrease after the end of the cycle. This is due to the increase in the number of muscle cells. Due to this, many athletes manage to progress many months after the end of the somatotropic hormone. Another interesting property of Growth Hormone is that its frequent injections in the same spot can lead to "burning out" of the fat layer in this place. This is what athletes use during pre-competition training.
How does growth hormone interact with insulin? Not too advanced athletes are not recommended to supplement the intake of Growth Hormone with Insulin - it is enough to fully eat every 3 hours. Thus, insulin levels will be maintained at a sufficiently high level. In addition, it should be noted that too much insulin provokes the growth of body fat. On the other hand, too low insulin levels in the blood, which most often occur during the "cutting" period before competition, dramatically reduces the effect of Growth Hormone on the body. The ideal option is to do blood and urine tests and determine how much insulin you need.
The main problems with Growth Hormone are, as a rule, a possible lack of sugar in the blood (risk of developing diabetes) or a possible hypofunction of the thyroid gland. As for the increased growth of individual organs and limbs, if they occur, then in the pre-pubertal period, or in the post-pubertal period, but only in people who suffer from hypofunction of the gonads (hypogonadism). In people suffering from endogenous hypersecretion of Growth Hormone, acromegaly may occur in the post-pubertal period. The bones become thicker, wider, but not longer. There is an increased growth of the hands and feet, as well as an increase in facial features due to the growth of the lower jaw and nose.
The diseases described above are extremely rare, and even then in the case of long-term use of Growth Hormone in very large doses.
