What is growth hormone?

Growth hormone (HGH) is a peptide hormone that stimulates development and cell reproduction and regeneration. HGH is produced by the somatotrophic cells of the pituitary gland and plays a very important role in the body. It is classified as a mitogen, a substance that stimulates cell mitosis. It is also known as somatotropin (STH), even though the somatotropin is the international most common denomination of the pharmacological name of the hormone. Somatotropin is obtained for a genetic recombinant process, thats why you can find it in scientific texts as recombinant human Growth Hormone (RHGH). Many people on the Internet get confused about the somatotrophin, referred to as growth hormone, with chorionic somatotrophin (CHT), a hormone produced by the placenta in pregnancy.


HPL and growth hormone have a similar structure and similar effects. The action of the HPL is weaker, but it can ensure fetal nutrition even in conditions of maternal malnutrition. PLH, together with HGH and prolactin, form a group of lactogenic and growth promoting hormones encoded in related genes. Growth hormone has a predominantly anabolic effect on tissues. HGH stimulates the biosynthesis and development of cell components, and to accomplish its action, the HGH is attached to specific receptors on the surface of the cells. There is no doubt that the most wellknown function of HGH is to increase height during childhood and adolescence. Other effects of growth hormone on the body are: stimulates liver gluconeogenesis, stimulates protein synthesis and increases mental and emotional health.


The levels of growth hormone in people, both in excess and deficiency, are significant. Persistent HGH excess produces acromegaly in adults and gigantism in infants from excessive bone growth, particularly in the jaws, hands and feet. It is often associated with pressure on nerves, muscle weakness, and insulin resistance. The impact of growth hormone deficiency is very variable at different ages. In children the main effect is a delay in growth and in development of sexual functions. In adults, HGH deficiency increases osteoclast disease activity and bone resorption. In conclusion, we can see that it´s important to keep the levels of the hormone under control by an expert in the field to avoid the risks mentioned above.

Reviews from customers


Thank you guys! I have been ordering HGH for almost 3 years now from other sites online, and I had gotten used to waiting 3-6 weeks for my order to arrive. You can only imagine my excitement to receive my package at my doorstep the very next day. You guys are awesome!

I've been treating my patients with Humatrope HGH vials for about 4 years now, it's the only drug I recommend for kids, including of course the Norditropin pens. These guys have prices that can't be beat, a high quality product, and amazingly overnight shipping, the days of waiting a month for my product are over, thanks!

I just cant believe how good I have been feeling since I started taking HGH, I bought the Norditropin pen for my children and then after doing some homework I realized the somatropin is also good for anti-aging purposes so I started taking it myself too! I received my package in a well-done packaging and the best part is that they give me a discount because Im buying for me and my kid.

It´s crazy how my kid started growing and taking advantage of this Norditropin pen so fast, it took him only 6 weeks with a dose of 4 iu´s a day so I could see results. These guys have been amazing with the prices and also their customer service is superb. I was buying product from Russia and waiting 3 weeks to get it but with them I only waited 24 hours. Thanks for the fast shipping you guys! Im so happy I found you.

I found these guys 3 years ago and at the beginning I was skeptical about buying HGH online but these gusy exceeded my expectations with a fast shipping and the best prices. I had to buy multiples pens for my kids as I have 2 kids that need to take 3 iu´s each everyday 7 days a week. And hghforsale.co gave me the price I was looking for for buying in bulk. I bought the 10mg Norditropin Nordiflex pen and Im very happy with how easy is to get the correct dose.
