SOMATROPO® (Somatropin, rhGH) Product
Just as the name implies, the human growth hormone (HGH) can be described as a naturally occurring peptide which is secreted by the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is located in the brain, and it is responsible for the overall cellular and muscular growth of the body. Even though the hormone is made up of heterogeneous components, it is imperative to note that it contains about 191 amino acids which are stabilized by two disulfide bonds. Before now, the significant sources of hGH was from human cadavers. This source of rGHG brought about some diseases which later led to the creation of the recombinant hGH (rhGH) in the 1980s. The recombinant hGH was created from through the genetic modification of the naturally occurring hGH, and this has dramatically produced better results than those harvested from human cadavers. After its successful introduction in the market, rhGH has been utilized for the treatment of patients with deficient quantities of hGH and has been shown to improve bone growth and thus, dramatically affects the final stature of the individual. SOMATROPO® (Recombinant Human Growth Hormone) comes with other forms of applications such as those involved in sports for bodybuilding or as a performance-enhancing drug. It is an injectable oil which can interfere with the normal growth process to increase the body mass while depleting the general fat mass.
SOMATROPO® (Recombinant Human Growth Hormone) comes in different concentrations such as 3,7 mg (100IU Package) and 3,33 mg (200IU Package). The concentration of these determines the level of results obtained by the individual. Although the widely accepted of rhGh today has been based on its anabolic properties, it has also been shown to have a positive effect on fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Presently, the use of rHHG has been documented among swimmers, dancers and other athletes who are interested in building their muscles or increasing the level of muscular health. The ability of rhGH to replenish the levels of naturally occurring hGH in the body has come in handy in its utilization as bodybuilding supplement.
The results of the interaction between rhGH in the body have been widely documented by a wide range of individuals. The higher the concentration of hGH present in the body, the higher the level of results obtained. The activities of hGH can be increased up to ten-fold during prolonged moderate workouts. This shows that the levels of hGH present in the body can be significantly affected by the level of exercise conducted.
Recombinant Human growth hormone produces a variety of side effects in individuals. These side effects range from swollen hands and feet, dentition challenges, fluid retention in the body system, and excessive production of sweat by the individual. The continued use of a high dosage of rhGH can lead to the diabetes mellitus and a disturbance of the lipid profile in the body.
In summary, each 10 IU vial of SOMATROPO® (Recombinant Human Growth Hormone) contains 3.7 mg of hGH. The side effects recorded have significantly been linked with prolonged usage and administration of the wrong dosage.
