You can just drink milk and get a nice dose of bovine growth hormone.

I'm not sure what your goal is. But my advice is to stay away from the major supplements like HGH. My nutritionist thinks of it this way...

Food always comes first: So this would be like your diet obviously. Eating healthy's more important than anything. If you train regularly try to keep your protein powders as a normal part of your diet. (i do three meals a day, plus 3 protein shakes = six meals)


Supplements: The only one i use would be Glutamine. Its great also if you train regularly. It helps your muscles regenerate much faster and you feel more energetic.

But my goals may be different from yours. My goals just to train and work out and gain size slower but more naturally. i just think its a healthier way to go than bulking up extremely fast.

umm basically if you want mad side-effects like a giant ******* head....maybe some baldness...other things i can't remember right now you should go right ahead and take it

honestly it's banned in ammateur comp too...i used to have to pee in a cup for kayaking and it's serious shit.....don't gamble with your health with supplements like that it's just a waste

It is more expensive than Steroids but side effects are still there, but much less that Steroids.

Somatropin is among the more popular brands of HGH.

Secondly you can't just walk into a Nutrition Store and buy it.

You can, like all steroids and Hormones, get them at an Anti Aging Clinic or South of the Border.

Either way if you're looking for something to get an edge in MMA. I'd recommend EPO. It's not illegal in MMA, and it can't be detected at all, although you need to be monitored while you use it or you could kill yourself.

Also lastly I should mention that HGH is for experienced users, if you REALLY want to build muscle and decrease recovery time, you should start out with a novice steroids cycle.

I for one have never taken any steroids or even any hormonal products, but I know people who do and I am educated on the subject.

But if you're looking for advice about this stuff you need to look elsewhere because people (or some) on this forum don't really know what they are talking about.

There is a safe way to use these chemicals if you do it right.

Plus side effects like growing of the bones from HGH comes from long term use of the drug.

And when you're Testes Shrink, they don't stay that way, and you can even prevent it by using proper PCT.

Some other things. Sorry if I'm Double Posting but I don't care.

Now that I re-read your post. I have some questions and some things to tell you.

First of all, how old are you? - Because if you're anywhere under 21 you don't need to be taking anything related to Hormonal Regulation. Wether it be Steroids, HGH, or even a Testosterone Booster at GNC.

Secondly. Anything that they sell at GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, or BB.com with HGH written on it, is not real HGH. It's either just a substance that causes you to produce more (which is usually minimal) GH, or it's complete garbage. If it was real HGH, they wouldn't be able to sell it, because Steroids and HGH are illegal without a prescription.

Lastly. Don't ask for sources or websites where you can buy it. Because nobody will give it to you, and if they do- they're idiots. Check out Operation Raw Deal if you don't believe me.

So if you go to a BB site and ask about Roids or HGH and they ask you whats a source, it's because they are trying to protect the Labs from getting raided by the DEA.

Yeah but HGH(human growth hormone) its a hormone that stimulates cell reproduction. a lot of athletes use it. it increases physical appearance and injury resistance. this and traditional steroids have been in the light of baseball allegations as well as other sports.

It's not a steroid but a peptide, not that its chemical structure is what ultimately decides whether it's legal or not. It's a prescription drug in Europe, and I can only assume it's the same in America.
