Arctotropin 191aa HGH, Northern Pharma, Europe, 10iu/vial x 10 vials (100iu - 1 kit)
Somatropin, also known as growth hormone, is a peptide hormone produced by the pituitary gland that regulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration. Its effects include increased muscle mass and decreased body fat. Somatropin is used medically to treat a variety of conditions in adults and children including GH deficiency due to diseases or treatments that damage the pituitary gland, Turner Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Short Stature at Birth with No Catch-Up Growth, Chronic Renal Insufficiency, HIV/ AIDS-related Wasting/Cachexia and more. Somatropin can also be prescribed off label for anti-aging purposes and performance enhancement in athletes.
The primary action of somatropin is increasing the availability of IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1) in the bloodstream through stimulating liver production of IGF-1. In turn this helps increase lean body mass by stimulating protein synthesis in muscle cells while also positively affecting bone mineral density by promoting calcium uptake into bones. Studies have shown that it can also improve exercise tolerance and cognitive function by improving glucose uptake into cells and helping with energy metabolism in neurons. As well as these anabolic effects it can also reduce fat mass through mechanisms such as increasing fatty acid oxidation which leads to increased metabolic rate. Additionally somatropin has been found to have positive impacts on healing time from injury as well as on skin health due to its ability to stimulate collagen formation making it useful for cosmetic procedures too.
Due to its wide range of applications somatropin has become increasingly popular among medical professionals around the world both for therapeutic uses such as treating growth dysfunction disorders and enhancing quality of life in individuals with chronic illnesses such as HIV/AIDS; but also for performance enhancers amongst athletes seeking an edge over their competition.
