Growth Hormone Manual
by Death on the field
With special thanks to Ironmaster's for all his HGH Knowledge and words
this is an article on GH I have been working on, it takes all the advice from
the top vets on Growth hormone and has been thoroughly checked and also provides
u can look at the info and studies yourself if u want. this was made to benefit
all who are looking into starting GH or need basic info on it. i am not trying
to take credit for it since most of the ideas in here are either common
knowledge or by MOD or Ironmaster, this is only till ironmaster can get a book
out with all his info on it. If anyone has anything to add to it please do so,
its only to help out the iron brotherhood, enjoy, and merry xmas

Hypoglycemia- due to lowered insulin levels.
Aromeglia- (abnormal bone growth) GH does not cause it, but if you are
predisposed to it, it will speed it up.
GH gut- if predisposed and taking large doses of GH
Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
Soreness in Joints
Benefits of GH:
New Muscle Cells
Smoothing and improving the skin
Leanness, it is a potent fat burner
Joint and ligament strengthening
Where to Inject, How, and How to Make:
You can site inject anywhere you can reach the subcutaneous layer. Pinch the
flesh and pull back, then insert the needle in the "pocket" underneath. Doesn't
absorb quick enough if you inject into the adipose tissue. Do not inject
intra-muscular, though it can be done, it is not recommended. GH is a site
injection, where it is shot is where it will burn the most noticeable fat. Most
people do it in the stomach since that is a typical sub q shot with most of the
fat being in that area. GH should be kept in a fridge; freezing will destroy the
GH. On your kit it probably says to use the kit in 18-24 hours, remember these
are for AIDS patients, not bodybuilders or athletes. Mixing the GH can either be
done with sterile water or bacteriostatic water. The kit with water will be fine
for 3 days in the fridge, even with the sterile water, but you should not take
this chance, rather you should use bacteriostatic water and play it safe. This
will keep it fine for a couple of weeks. When mixing the GH, let the water slide
down the side as to not pulverize the GH wafer. Do not spray it directly against
the wafer with any force. Before reconstitution and even after GH is fragile!!!
Also once the water is injected into the bottle gently swirl the vial to
reconstitute, do not shake or swirl violently!!!!
1 ml = 1 cc -/+
100 units per 1 cc
6 mg = 18iu
1 ml = 18iu
.50 ml = 9iu
.25 ml = 4.5iu
Some people choose to only do it in cc's but here is how you can do it in units
on a slin dart
5.5 = 1iu, so 2iu = 11 on a slin dart
Differences Between Kits:
The main difference between kits is how many IU's they make when reconstituted.
For example, Serostim re-constitutes to make 126iu, while a Saizen kit.... also
made by Serono.... makes up 15iu. Another of their kits makes 54iu. It better be
way cheaper than a Serostim kit! Humatrope is fine, but costs too much. The
other main concern would be fakes; Lilly is the most often faked one. Some older
GH kits do not have holograms on them and are legit, but they are usually only
less than 100 dollars than new GH kits with holograms, and I would rather be
assured of the hologram and legitimacy of the kit. Best buy currently is Serostim 126 iu kits. These are made for people with wasting diseases like AID's.
Many of these patients got infected because they are IV drug
addicts..........they sell the Serostim on the street for drug money.
4 to 6 i.u ed is sufficient. Most people take it 5 days on 2 days off at their
designated dosage. There is no reason or evidence why you cannot stay on for
various lengths of time; there is no need to go 5 on 2 off other than cost.
Considering that our natural production is only .5 to 1.5iu a day, this is still
a huge bump for the body. Research has shown that the body's natural defense
systems render mega doses of GH ineffective, anyway. GH does not cause gains in
mass...it allows you to put on a great deal of lean mass in combination with
proper steroid and insulin use. The user before taking must know this. One or
two kits are not enough, you need at least 3 to make you happy, GH takes a while
to make its effects, but remember they are long lasting, what you see is what
you keep. It takes 6 to 8 weeks to notice a dramatic change in body comp using
GH on an ED or 5/2 split. Lighter doses for long periods of time are better than
large doses for short cycles. Like any other drug, the more you take the more
the benefits, but likewise also more risks. 4-6 i.u is a standard dose but many
people take more, the most repulsing side effects happen at or beyond 12 i.u a
day but like anything else it depends on your predisposition for it.
How to Stack:
GH is best taken in conjunction with insulin, anabolic steroids, and t3. Insulin
is extremely effective with GH, as anyone here who has tried it will testify.
This is because GH injections cause a down regulation of insulin sensitivity in
GH alone causes little growth of lean mass, however, when combined with insulin
and steroids (and IGF-1 if you can find it), the results can be down right
remarkable...esp. in the older bodybuilder. Start light with the Humulin...5iu...and
work up 1 iu a day till you get use to it. 7 to 10iu in the AM and 7 to 10 i.u in
the late afternoon, with split doses of GH is your best bet. When splitting
GH/insulin doses, I use mid-morning and late afternoon after lifting.... both
flat times in our natural GH production. The insulin overcomes the
insulin-resistance caused by exogenous GH supplementation. If you are scared to
take insulin thought, then GH with Test and Glucophage is good. GH is good for
cutting if used alone. Glucophage allows for improved glucose and amino acid
absorption by the muscle tissue and does it safely. This is what you want. The
half-life of GH is only 2 hours so spread it out. Avoid bedtime injections since
we produce the bulk of our own GH in the first two hours of sleep. Since
exogenous GH suppresses this, you should not take it before bed. For best
results, use a 17aa oral during the cycle to stimulate the release of natural
insulin growth factors. I would run the test throughout. GH/insulin/test is the
proven synergistic combination.
It is also wise to preload with testosterone before starting GH if you are going
to do it. You should preload with the amount of time it takes for that
testosterone to kick in, since most of us take longer acting esters for
testosterone you should usually start taking the test 2 weeks before GH use.
Likewise, you can accommodate it to fit your needs; the key is for the test to
be kicking in the same time you are starting to run your GH. You can cycle you
steroids however you want to depending on your goals, if you are going for a
more massive look than you would run insulin for most of the cycle and use high
androgens, but if you are looking for additional leanness at the end of a cycle
you should stop the androgens and run a higher dose of GH or run less androgens.
T3 is also another substance that should be used during human growth
hormone cycling since GH
lowers thyroid hormones. T3 should be used for shorter periods though, because
it can permanently alter the endocrine system. The magic of GH for men is the
ability to gain mass without fat or bloating when stacked properly with insulin,
and steroids. GH also makes for amazing improvements in skin...smoothes
wrinkles, burns stubborn spots of adipose tissue, gives that paper-thin contest
look...and also gives one a real mood lift, a feeling of well being.
Major Difference Between GH and Steroids:
Steroids can increase the size of your muscle cells, but cannot I repeat CAN NOT
increase the number of muscle cells in your body, which to start with is
governed by your genetics. However Growth hormone CAN increase the number of
muscle cells in your body, which goes beyond genetics.
Half-Life of GH:
Exogenous (injected) GH has a "half-life" of approximately 2 hours . . . a
4-hour period of activity during which there is a suppression of naturally
GH Naturally Produced:
We release the most of our naturally produced GH during the first two hours of
deep sleep...you may take a little time to adjust.... your body thinks you
should be in bed when that big influx hits. It is good to take a nap, that's
when you grow anyway. It always helps to take naps after workouts and injections
GH Causing Acromeglia:
Acromeglia is a disease...you either have it or you don't. Supplementing
growth hormone will
not cause it. Persons suffering from acromeglia, like Andre the Giant, lack the
natural defense mechanisms of the body to regulate the production and effects of
GH secretion in he pituitary. It is well established in the medical literature
that exogenous GH will not cause the disease.... of course it would worsen the
condition in those who had it.
GH Gut: Myth or Reality?:
Some researchers claim that any gains in weight experienced by subjects using
alone was due to growth of internal organs and connective tissue, which could
cause some problems. Most studies do not agree with this theory and consider "GH
gut" to be a myth. Some people are allergic to synthetic test, this is something
you have to find out for yourself. Some people also feel intestinal discomfort
from time to time, if so take it down to one item at a time to see what is
causing you discomfort; creatine, glutamine, protein products, orals, and dirty
gear have all been known to cause this, so find the problem early.
GH and IGF-1:
Perhaps the most relevant effect of IGF-1 is the ability of IGF-1 to increase
protein synthesis by increasing cellular mRNA formation (mRNA makes protein) as
well as increasing uptake of amino acids. This effect on protein synthesis can
lead to increased lean mass. The research indicates that this effect is
dependent on GH presence as well. So IGF-1 alone does not promote such effects.
Nor does GH. It appears the combination of the two most consistently lead to
increased protein synthesis.
GH and IGF-1 are negative regulators of growth hormone release so an increase in either
(from a GH injection) reduces the secretion of GH. IGF-1 is very difficult to
obtain in a useable condition.... it must be handled very gently and have bee
kept at a rather precise temperature at all times. One can stimulate IGF
production through the use of an oral steroid during cycle. Dianabol, for example,
causes a rather extensive release of IGF during the first pass through the
The leading studies in this area: (Ney, 1999, Yarasheski, 1994.... Am J. App.
In the Yarasheski study, no increase in lean muscle mass was noticed in the
subjects using GH alone, but significant gains were found in subjects that
supplemented with IGF and GH...add in the steroids and look out! Yarasheski
studied weight trained athletes, supplementing one group with GH alone, and one
group with GH and IGF. "So IGF-1 alone does not promote such effects. (Leanness
and increased lean mass) Nor does GH. It appears the combination of the two most
consistently lead to increased protein synthesis." Both seem to negatively
downregulate the other over time, so as to lead to diminishing returns. Cycling
would be in order for that reason. Also supplementing both is necessary because
one or the other alone will suppress the natural production of the
non-supplemented Latest study by Yarashevski - with GH alone...8 to 12% change
in lean body composition. 6% increase in muscle mass.
