Biotropin is the name of the drug that contains recombinant human growth hormone. The active substance is identical to natural growth hormone. Biotropin is prescribed in medicine in case of growth hormone deficiency, growth deficiency due to kidney failure or Turner’s syndrome. This drug is used in surgery and traumatology for the treatment of burns and wounds (surgical or traumatic wounds). Also, Biotropin promotes fat-burning processes, promotes muscle growth and increases libido.
Biotropin is available in the form of white soluble powder for injections. This drug promotes the growth of cartilage cells and accelerates protein synthesis.
Biotropin is effectively used after burns, surgeries and injuries. It increases the body’s resistance to various infections. Also, Biotropin reduces protein density and regulates cardiac and renal function, as well as fat metabolism in adults.
Important information about Biotropin indications
In medicine, Biotropin is used to treat growth failure, growth hormone deficiency in adults, certain disorders associated with chronic heart failure (prevention of aneurysms and myocardial ischemia), as well as in case of chronic emphysema, heart transplantation, chronic pulmonary and cardiac diseases, burns, injuries, severe infections. At the same time, Biotropin therapy helps regulate weight and improve physical skills.
Today, Biotropin is actively and successfully used in cosmetology. Biotropin injections are used to improve skin elasticity and muscle elasticity, as well as to reduce wrinkles. The drug allows preserve the youthfulness of the skin without surgical intervention. There are good reasons why hgh is called a hormone of beauty in the whole world. Being used alone or in combination with other agents, growth hormone provokes metabolism and regeneration of skin cells. In addition, as a result of hgh therapy, your skin becomes more elastic. And most importantly, growth hormone has absolutely no dangerous side effects.
Biotropin in sports
Biotropin (growth hormone) is a polypeptide hormone consisting of 191 amino acids. It is naturally produced by the pituitary gland. Also, hgh can be synthesized artificially. In fact, Biotropin is a synthetic version of growth hormone.
Growth hormone (hgh, somatotropin, somatropin) is a peptide hormone of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, which is used in sports to add more muscle mass. Growth hormone promotes linear growth (mainly due to the growth of long tubular bones of the extremities).
The usual concentration of growth hormone in the blood is 1-5 ng/ml.
- Anabolic effect – somatropin causes muscle growth;
- Anti-catabolic effect – somatropin stops the destruction of muscles;
- Somatropin helps burn fat;
- Hgh strengthens the bones and causes bone growth in young people up to 25 years of age;
- Somatropin can affect blood glucose levels.
Some effects of somatropin are associated with insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which stimulates the growth of internal organs. Virtually all the effects of hgh in sports are associated with IGF-1.
Hgh injections are highly popular in sports (mainly due to the ability to quickly reduce the amount of subcutaneous fat). In addition, studies have shown that somatotropin leads to an increase in muscle mass due to fluid accumulation.
Moreover, reduction in the incidence of injuries is another example of useful effects of somatotropin. Hgh injections help strengthen the bones and connective tissue (tendon, cartilage) after trauma.
Synthetic versions of growth hormone have a strong anabolic effect. Thus, Biotropin causes increased synthesis of protein, which leads to muscle cell size growth. Another big plus is that Biotropin significantly enhances fat-burning processes. It allows your body use more fat to produce energy. Moreover, it strengthens ligaments and cartilage tissue.
Biotropin causes an increase in the level of somatotropin in case of hgh deficiency. Moreover, this drug strengthens immunity, stimulates lymphoid formation, improves the contractility of the heart muscle, regulates fat metabolism, etc.
Other benefits of Biotropin: the drug increases mental and physical skills, effectively burns fat, improves sexual libido.
According to certain studies, Biotropin has some of the following cosmetic effects:
- The skin becomes smooth;
- Biotropin therapy helps achieve faster growth of hair and nails;
- Biotropin therapy helps achieve reduction of fat mass;
- The drug promotes muscular growth.
Rapid muscle growth with Biotropin depends on many factors, including physical activity, diet, age, quality and duration of sleep, lifestyle, etc. It may take several weeks before you feel the effect of Biotropin therapy. The result comes gradually: increase your chances of getting a positive result by using Biotropin every day.
Biotropin effective dosages
Most athletes take from 4 to 16 IU per day. The minimum dosage is 4 IU per day. The amount depends on certain conditions – training, sleep, stress, etc.
Biotropin injections are often given in the abdominal region.
Recommended doses for athletes: you should use growth hormone in the morning before meals, 2 hours after meals and half an hour before meals, during or immediately after workouts. In other words, injections should be given when you have low blood sugar. You need to use the drug at the same time every day.
Duration and dosage: the duration of the course is from 2 to 6 months, and dosages range from 5 to 25 IU per day. Dosages above 10 IU per day are for professionals only. The duration of the solo course is 2 months. Long-term courses (for 4-6 months) should be avoided.
It should be noted that Biotropin therapy is a slow process. If you want to gain muscle mass or burn fat in two or three weeks, then the remedy is worse than useless. Biotropin is one of the strongest agents: it has a number of unique positive effects. Of course, the effect is individual: it depends on many factors (active lifestyle, diet, etc.). But in most cases it is necessary to wait for several months in order to obtain the desired results.
Learn about Biotropin side effects
Biotropin can cause certain side effects. Some of these side effects can occur extremely rarely. Be sure to contact your doctor immediately in case of serious side effects.
Common side effects of this drug: upper respiratory tract infection, gastroenteritis, ear infections, abdominal pain, arthralgia, headache, gynecomastia, excessive sweating.
Biotropin interaction with other drugs
The effectiveness of Biotropin therapy may be lower if you take other drugs or supplements concurrently with this drug. Tell your doctor about other drugs, vitamins and supplements you use to avoid negative interactions. Biotropin should not be used with the following drugs and products: corticosteroids, glucocorticoids, anticonvulsants, cyclosporine, insulin.
Somatropin has a synergistic effect. It can be used with certain types of sports nutrition, as well as products that promote muscle mass. Therefore, an integrated approach is recommended in order to obtain the maximum effect.
Biotropin therapy is not allowed if you have the following conditions: hypersensitivity, malignant tumors, diabetic retinopathy, Prader-Willi syndrome (in children).
