The human growth hormone (GH) is produced by the anterior pituitary gland, present in brain. This hormone is responsible for controlling some physiological processes such as growth in children and adults. It also helps in regulating body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, fat metabolism and heart functions.
However, some people face deficiency of growth hormone, which affects the growth and overall body functions. Sometimes, this problem is caused due to an injury or any medical condition and may be present at birth as well. Some people, facing this problem, turn to a substance called human growth hormone (HCG) after seeing what it could do to the body. Synthetically formed growth hormone is referred to as HCG, which is present as an active ingredient in a number of drugs and products available widely. This is the reason why, it is important to know about different ways to take HCG:
Somatropin or HCG injections are synthetically made hormone that can provide full HCG replacement therapy. This is the most potent and accurate way to use HCG. These injections should be taken on the advice and management of a qualified physician because they may cause serious side effects. If you have the right equipment and prescribed dose by any doctor then you can take this at your home too. Make sure you have sterilized all the equipments before using them otherwise it may cause infection. HCG injections are the most expensive drugs available and its effectiveness depends upon the functioning of the pituitary gland.
Sprays contain the homeopathic HCG, which is the safest and most poplar type of non-injection HCG therapy. You can spray right into your mouth. This is very convenient method of HCG therapy. Homeopathic HCG is considered as the releasers because they can help the pituitary gland to increase the release of its own growth hormone to a more healthy level.
This is the good and most convenient method for people, who are on the go and wish to take their HCG with their meal. Pills and capsules are the most popular way to take HCG so this is the most common form available in the market. They are also sold online and health food stores. Pills and capsules of HCG are absorbed in the digestive tract and is the easiest way to start your human growth hormone regimen. This is least expensive form as well.
Powder: This is the convenient form for those who have problem in swallowing pills. This is also an easy method for those people, who want to take all their medications and supplements through shakes and smoothies. It costs the same as the pills and capsules.
Elixir: This is the liquid form of HGC, which can be used in your favourite beverage.
Some companies have brought out patches and creams and they claim that their products are as good as pills or powders. Such products may be either herbs or homeopathic. You can take the HCG in any of the given forms, but before you do anything, it is better to talk with your health care provider to avoid any genetic abnormalities, allergies and other side effects.
