First Time with HGH, Dosing Question


For my first hgh cycle y gonna take 5iu daily.it is better to inject one or two times a day ???


Its half life in serum is a few minutes. But transport from injection site will take some time.

In the liver it is converted to IGF-1 that has a long half life.

Once receptors are saturated, more may not be efficient. So one could argue for two doses per day.

In a hormone replacement context, it is well known that the benefits do not become fully evident for 6 weeks. But the action on muscles may be immediate in terms of growth potential.


So if y understand its not necessary to do 2 time a day.I can do my 5iu when i wake up ?
