HGH is typically sold in powdered form, and there is a good reason for this. When it is in liquid form, the somatropin molecules (the active “ingredient” of HGH, if you will) are incredibly fragile.
Freezing HGH can damage them, and they are also easily damaged by exposure to sunlight, heat (they begin to break down at room temperature), and vigorous shaking.
When you buy HGH you will be sent it in powdered form, and you mix up the powder as and when you need it, then inject it immediately afterwards.
You can store small amounts of mixed up HGH in your refrigerator, but you should not store it for more than 24 hours at a time.
Take out the mixture and inject it immediately, then put the remainder back. Do not keep it out of the fridge for more than a few minutes at a time. Keep the lyophilized (freeze dried) vials in your refrigerator as well, to ensure that they last until the use-by date on the label.
What Should You Mix HGH With?
One thing that many people fail to think about is what kind of water to mix with HGH. Most HGH makers recommend that you use sterile “bacteriostatic” solutions, which are essentially distilled water with 0.9% sodium chloride.
Normal saline solutions will also work, as will plain distilled water. Ideally, you should use the solution recommended by the pharmacy that sold you the HGH, but if no recommendation is made, choose plain sterile water. Do not use tap water.
How to Mix HGH
Start by removing the plastic cap from the top of the vial. Wipe the rubber down with a swab and some medical alcohol.
Next, pull 1ml of water into the syringe (this will be easy to measure if you are using an insulin syringe) and then push the needle through the rubber cap on the vial.
Do this at a slight angle so that the water sill slide down the inside of the vial. Slowly inject the water into the vial, so that it runs into the powder. Do not inject the water onto the powder with force.
You should notice that most of the white powder dissolves almost immediately, but there may be a few lumps of powder left over. You should never shake HGH solutions. Instead, hold the vial in your hand and slowly turn it upside down, then turn it the right way up again.
After a minute or two of slowly rotating or rolling the vial all of the solution should have dissolved. If you do not want to do this, another option is to put the vial in the fridge for 30 minutes, by which time the remainder of the powder should have dissolved.
Once the powder has dissolved into the liquid, you should give the vial a couple of extra turns to ensure that the solution is properly mixed. It is now time to pull the HGH into your syringe. Vials of HGH are under a vacuum, so it is hard to get the liquid to come out.
You can relieve the pressure of the vacuum by injecting a syringe full of air into the top of the vial. Take care, however, to not put the tip of the syringe into the liquid when you do this. Inject the air over the liquid, so that the liquid itself does not bubble.
Pull a single dose of HGH into the syringe, and then inject it into yourself. Some injections are given intramuscularly, while others are given subcutaneously. Check the prescription that your doctor gave you to confirm what you should be doing.
The dosage of HGH that you should take will vary depending on why you are taking HGH. As a rule of thumb, most doctors prescribe 2IU per day for people taking HGH for anti-aging purposes, and 4IU per day for athletes using HGH for fitness, muscle building or fat loss.
People who are taking HGH to recover from injuries or burns may be prescribed much higher doses. Again, these are just rules of thumb and you should speak to your doctor or visit a specialist for advice on exactly how much HGH you should be taking and how long you should take it for.
If you have any concerns about side-effects or your general health while you are taking HGH, stop your injections and seek professional medical advice immediately.
If possible use insulin syringes with the 100 markings on the body to inject your HGH. Be sure to dispose of the needle immediately after use, and do not re-use or share needles under any circumstances.
Technically, you can use any syringe to mix and inject HGH, but you will find it easier to mix the correct dose if you use an insulin syringe.
