What You Need To Know About Human Growth Hormone

Factors determining HGH dosage

Health state.
Using solo or in combination.
Cycle duration and
Financial capacities.

Different quantities of the hormone show different results. To improve your skin, and, feel younger, and general healing 2 iu/dialy is enough, 4-5 IUs provides significant fat burning results and HGH dosage for muscle gain starts from 5 IU and rise up to 10 and more IUs.

Experience and HGH dosage

Effect of HGH depends on both – your bodybuilding experience and experience of using growth hormone.

Beginner will have better results from the same HGH dosage than an experienced athlete, because he is much farther from his maximum muscular potential and so can build muscles easier.

If you use HGH for the first time, 5 IUs of quality pharma grade growth hormone will be enough to obtain noticeable muscle gain and burn fat. "Veterans”, who had several growth hormone cycles in combination with AAS and insulin, will be satisfied with 10 IUs daily.

HGH dosage depends on cycle duration

The longer your cycle is, the less dosage you need. Although, optimal duration of HGH cycle is 3 months, 2 or 4 months are effective too.

Short cycles with high hgh dosages can help to heal injuries, strengthen joint and ligaments. Increase in strength observed in the first days of using HGH is connected with this effect.

Another use of short cycles is cutting. HGH help to prevent muscle loss during low-carbohydrate diet and to accelerate fat lose.

Experiments comparing women with diet restriction using HGH and with diet and placebo, showed that growth hormone accelerate fat burning by 30%.

Long cycles with relatively low hgh dosages gives ability to burn fat without diet restriction and to build muscles at the same time. Another advantage – long usage increase growth hormone potential to induce hyperplasia – increasing the number of muscle cells by their division. However, muscle hyperplasia is a controversial topic among the scientists. Also, long cycles provide access to long-term effects of growth hormone – its influence on the skin, nails and hair.

Last but not least, short high-dosage protocol shows more side effects than long, but less risk of antibodies appearance.


There are many methods of using HGH – every day (ED), every other day (EOD), 3 times a week, by single injection a day or divided by several doses.

Every day protocol is classical and the most common – injections of growth hormone every day during the cycle. ED keeps GH and IGF-1 level at the same level and is the most effective protocol for fat burning and the best idea for the short cycles.

Every other day (EOD) shows good results in muscle growth, but because of changes in serum HGH level, fat lose isn’t so significant as in ED. EOD protocol allow to use HGH for the long time without rapid formation of antibodies, that decrease efficiency of the hormone.

Interesting study that evaluated long- and short-term effects of ED and EOD protocols for children with growth hormone deficiency [2]. First ED group had their week dosage divided on 7 parts and the second EOD group injected the same dosage for 3 times.

Initial 6 months resulted in 3,9 cm in ED group and 0,2 cm in the EOD group. However, 4 years of treatment showed that EOD group is averagely 6,5 cm higher than ED group.

This experiment shows that ED injections are more effective than EOD for the short cycles, but are worse in the long perspective.

3 times a week injections aren’t effective for bodybuilding, but are usually used for growth hormone deficiency children. This protocol helps to prevent antibodies appearance during threatment continuing for years, but is ineffective in short perspective.

Do I need to split my daily HGH amount?

Yes, you do. Several injections during the day helps to keep growth hormone level smooth and thus, provide better ability for protein synthesis and building muscle.

Second argument – liver cant converse huge amount of growth hormone into IGF rapidly. HGH has short half-life period and excess amounts of it can be destroyed by organism without transforming to IGF-1.

Another «pro» – risks of side effects appearance diminishes if HGH dosage is divided.

Weight and HGH dosage

Effect of the same amount of growth hormone is correlated with your weight, especially muscle mass. GH serum level is measured in nanogramms per milliliter of blood, so the bigger you are and the more blood you have, the more HGH you need. Mass of blood is about 7 percent of the whole body weight. 70 kg man has about 4,9 liters of blood and 100 kg man has 7 liters. 30% difference!

Consider this, choosing your HGH dosage.

How HGH dosage changes in combination with AAS or insulin?

Although some people claim that growth hormone solo without AAS or insulin – is the waste of money, growth hormone alone can give you good gains, which won’t be lost after the cycle ends, without side effects and suppression of your testosterone.

But to get significant effect from HGH only cycle dosage should be higher than if you take several steroids.

The scheme looks like this:

But to get significant effect from HGH only cycle dosage should be higher than if you take several steroids.

The scheme looks like this:

HGH – 10 IUs/ day.

HGH + insulin = 7-10 IUs/day of HGH + 10-15 IUs of rapid- or short-acting insulin

HGH + testosterone = 5-7 IUs/day + 500-1000 mg of testosterone enanthate/week

HGH + testosterone + insulin = 5 IUs of HGH, 500 mg of test-e, 10-15 IUs of insulin

Obviously, the more anabolic agents you use, the less quantity of each you need to build muscles.

In combination cycles, instead of using only, the main purpose of HGH is to burn fat, help to stay lean, prevent joint injuries. Muscle building function is executed by AAS and insulin, which are more potent but also more dangerous.

How to correct HGH dosage due to health state?

Although, HGH has few side effects, you should consider them. I wrote comprehensive article about side effects of HGH here.

Blood sugar
The main issue you need to pay attention is your pancreas and blood sugar level. Check, whether you have any close relatives with high blood sugar or diabetes. In this case you shouldn’t use high dosages (upper 8 IUs) and you need to inject insulin during the cycle to help your pancreas.

Before starting your HGH cycle, you should necessary pass test for blood sugar.

High level of glucose shows that your pancreas can’t produce enough insulin, so using HGH is undesirable, because it increases blood sugar.

If your results are 3,9-5,5 mmol/l, you can use HGH dosages up to 7-10 IUs without exogenous insulin.

High pressure. Growth hormone usually causes water retention, thus increasing blood pressure. That is why, people who have problems with hyper tension, should gradually increase HGH dosage, starting from 2 IUs up to your desirable amount. Also, use quality growth hormone brands with high purity, which don’t retain so much water as underground products. The best choice is Jintopin and Ansomone.
As I wrote in the article about side effects, HGH can’t provoke cancer occurrence, however, can accelerate development of tumor that already exists.

Don’t use HGH in any dosage, if you have cancer and pay attention if you relatives had this disease. In the last case you need to check yourself before using.

The best cost-to-quality HGH are Jintropin, Ansomone and Hygetropin.

For a woman I'd do 2iu first thing in morning. Gh takes time. Be consistent month to month and you'll see results. Don't look for any results the first month.
