A Beginners Guide to HGH

The introduction of HGH into bodybuilding and pretty much all competitive sports has been a game changer. The positive effects it has on athletic performance, anti-aging and all around better well-being is nothing short of amazing. I want to take a moment this month to review some of the basics with HGH as we’ve been asked by a lot of customers for guidance in this area.

Preparation / How to Mix / Storage
HGH comes in many different preparations. The majority of guys have found the generics coming out of China are potent and reasonably priced. Please note, there are literally 100’s of different China HGH generics being sold out there. Many of them are garbage, but there are definitely some that are potent and have a long established track record of being tested in the lab and in the cycles of athletes. The majority of HGH comes in 100iu kits. They include 10 small vials containing dry lyophilized powder of 10iu per vial totaling 100iu per box. HGH generally comes in these multi-vial preparations to ensure it stays stable after being constituted. To constitute the HGH you will add sterile (or bacteriostatic) water to the individual vial. If mixing the HGH in the 10iu vials, you will want to mix 1cc of water into the vial. You only want to mix one vial at a time. Once that vial is used, you can then mix another one. Store the entire kit in the frudge, even before each vial is mixed. Once the preparation is mixed together you still want to keep it in the fridge (do not put it in the fridge door where it will get agitated, its best to leave it on a shelf and not disturb it unless your drawing out your dose).

Dosage / Administration
The dosage will depend on each person and is highly individualized, but if you are new to HGH and this is your first time using it, I would recommend starting off with a 3iu dose 1x per day, 5-7 days per week. I often get asked what is the best time of day to take the HGH injection? I have tried administering my HGH shot about every way you can imagine, and have settled on doing it either post workout  (whatever time that may be) or simply doing it before you go to bed. I tend to prefer the bedtime routine as the HGH makes me a little tired. Starting with a 3iu injection daily and then moving it up or down from there depending on your effects/side effects is best. The injection is administered using an insulin syringe. I recommend getting a 29-32 gauge needle (the larger the gauge #, the smaller the diameter of the needle) that is 1/2″ long. I prefer the 1cc volume syringes but the 1/2 cc will work also. You will pull the correct dose into the needle from the sterile HGH vial, pull out of the vial and clear the air from the syringe, then pinch the skin of your belly, thigh or anywhere you can find some pliable skin and stick the needle into the skin, careful not to let the needle enter the muscle. This is a subcutaneous injection.

Benefits of Taking HGH
The benefits of taking HGH are numerous. Many people use HGH for general wellness / anti-aging and see benefits in their skins vibrancy/elasticity. Increased energy levels, decreased pain around joints and connective tissue, increased muscle mass and decreased fat are common benefits of HGH. When you stack HGH with other AAS these results are magnified. If you’re not able to use the HGH for at least 3 months I would not advise taking it. HGH seems to have a more cumulative effect, meaning the longer you use it the better it works and the more/better results you see. Most people will not see fat loss or increased muscle in the first few weeks, it takes a month or two to begin seeing these results.

Side Effects
The side effects of HGH are generally dose dependent, meaning the higher the dose you are taking the more of these side effects you will see. Reports of swelling in the hands and joints are common in the beginning, as your body gets used to the dose and acclimates itself. I have experienced achy joints/body aches with higher doses as well. If you experience side effects, you can mitigate them by decreasing the dose.

What to Stack with HGH?
I think men should stack HGH with some kind of testosterone. The dose will depend on your goals if you are just doing it for general wellness and anti-aging, or if you are using it for extreme performance enhancement and want to maximize the synergistic effect that HGH and AAS have together. Using HGH on its own will work great, but stacking it with some kind of AAS, preferably testosterone, seems to have a synergistic effect (think 1 + 1 = 3). I don’t know the science on how this synergistic effect works, but it is well documented in the bodybuilding world.

HGH has one of the safest track records of any drug you can use for performance enhancement or general well being. The price has come down significantly in the last 10-years so it is affordable for most people who can shop around for a good deal. HGH is unique in the fact men and women can both use it with minimal side effects. Another benefit of using HGH is you don’t really need to ‘cycle off’ of it, you can stay on year round if your finances allow for it.

I hope this article helps to give some more basic insight on HGH. If any of you want or need more information on this please feel free to reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help.

Thank you,

G and all of Team GearDepot!

Is My Humatrope Legit?

I want to take a moment and explain this to our customers. We have been selling the Humatrope 72 iu kits for several years now. I believe these are the highest quality HGH kits I am able to procure and we pay top dollar to get them. Several months ago, I was made aware of some counterfeit or non-authentic Humatrope kits going around. At first this caught me off guard, as I would not think a Humatrope kit would be something profitable to fake, as there are many components to the kit including the HGH cartridge vial, the pen filled with BAC water, the packaging, etc. Going through the effort to produce all of these different elements in the kit would cost a small fortune and you would have to do this in China or some other country with lax controls on copyright and counterfeit policies. I was immediately skeptical of this and began to do some research to ensure the kits we have been buying are in fact real and authentic.

I believe 100% of the Authentic Humatrope HGH kits being sold on the black market are produced in Turkey. I believe Lilly has a production facility there and this is why the majority (if not all) of the Humatrope we see on the black markets are from Turkey. One would figure that buying from a source located in Turkey would guarantee you a legit kit, but I found this not to be the case. I obtained, what I know for certain is a real authentic Humatrope 72 iu kit. I also procured what I suspected was a non authentic Humatrope 72 iu kit. While looking at them both side-by-side, you’d be hard pressed to ‘see’ the difference in the packaging, as they are almost identical. Here are the main differences I am seeing as I inspect these both. Please note, this is not a be all end all for this subject, just what I am observing as I research this topic online and while holding the 2 kits side by side.

Key differences:

– the authentic kit’s box has a matte finish on it; the non-authentic one has a more glossy finish.

– the authentic kit’s label on the HGH cartridge holding the HGH powder has a few key differences.

a) the non-authentic kit’s label can be easily peeled off, the corners are not firmly glued on.

b) the non-authentic kit’s label has a slightly different color of yellow on the side closest to the rubber stopper you draw out off.

c) the authentic kit has the brighter, more pronounced yellow; the non-authentic has a more transparent slightly dull color. (see image below)


– the cylinder cartridge with the HGH powder in it has far less powder in the non-authentic vs. the authentic kit. In some of my research, I have seen others say the non-authentic cartridge has more powder, (less puck) in the HGH itself. In my experience, the HGH in the authentic kits have almost always been in a ‘puck’ form, and not powdery or loose.

The price would be the biggest red flag that I see differentiating these the most. I am seeing the non-authentic kits being sold for about 30-40% less than what we normally pay for them. I have also seen an abundance of sources offer to ship these kits from within the US (and still for 30-40% less cost). Normally we import these kits from Turkey into the US. Anyone claiming they can ship these from within the US for much cheaper than normal is most likely selling a non-authentic kit.

So are the non-authentic kits all fakes and useless? This is a very good question and one I cannot easily answer; however, I will give some info here that may help. We recently purchased about 50 of the non-authentic kits. A source we had used in the past was selling these trying to pass them off as authentic. We purchased them and, upon receiving them in, realized they are not identical to those that we have purchased previously. This situation was the genesis of this article and the research we have been doing on this topic. I wanted to see if the non-authentic product we purchased actually had HGH in it? I know many many products that are ‘faked’ or counterfeit, that we have personally tested have been found to have the correct active ingredient in it and at doses matching the label claim. Others will have authentic product, but less potent then the labels claim. Upon administering this HGH for a few days myself, I feel confident that it contains real HGH, as the immediate effects are felt by me and several others. We’ll be sending these out for testing as well, but the HGH testing takes longer to complete then other AAS. Once we have those results back we can formally report on this matter and help to fill in the gaps of information.

In conclusion I want to be as transparent as possible with our customers and anyone reading this. If you are purchasing Humatrope 72 iu HGH kits from Turkey, please make sure you know what you’re buying and do some research so you are fully aware of the hazards. We have a limited stock of the authentic Humatrope 72iu kits in now, and we will also be selling these non-authentic Humatrope kits as well– for a significantly reduced price until we are out of them. I feel confident that this batch of non-authentic kits we have in now do contain HGH, but I cannot confirm the exact amount yet, so please be aware of this.

SuperBlueTop HGH testing off the chart!

The Super Blue Top HGH has been selling off the shelves faster then we can stock them, I know why now!? We received some blood work from our testing program showing 38.5 on the Growth Hormone test! For those that are not familiar with the blood tests on HGH, anything above 20 would be considered good, above 30 is great, and 38.5 is stellar! The current ‘Super Blue Tops HGH’ batch is what was tested in this report, so if you order within the next few weeks, you will have the same batch that is extremely potent. Please have a look over the test result, it was done with 10iu injection and blood levels were tested 3 hrs after injection, I would recommend testing in the 2 hrs post injection range as I feel the result could have been even higher. Regardless, these are some potent kits, buy them while we have the stock.

Why do you carry so many different HGH kits and what is the best?

As many of you know, we have carried many different brands of HGH like riptropin kits, black tops, grey tops, nuptropins, angetropins, humatrope, etc etc..

Many people ask which HGH is best? There are so many HGH kits being sold right now its hard to know what is good and what is bad. I want to explain why we carry several different brands of the HGH, and the differences between some of them.

We have been ordering HGH for over 13 years now. The majority of the HGH on the grey market comes from china. We have a few products like Humatrope that don’t come from china, but for the most part all HGH is coming out of china now. HGH is made in large batches. many things can effect the potency of the HGH like

  • Manufacturing processes
  • Light exposure
  • Heat exposure
  • Temperature stability
  • Time the HGH is in liquid form

We are seeing a lot of HGH come out of china that has been widely different batch to batch. 9 years ago we got burned on a large shipment of HGH we had ordered. We placed a test order with he supplier, sent the stuff off for testing and it came back on point so we placed an order for 500 kits. Once we got them we had some more tested and realized we got screwed. Since this incident 9 years ago we have been testing each batch we receive to ensure its up to par. The reason we carry different types of HGH at different times of the year is simple, we test each batch, and only buy the batches that test high. By doing this we can assure the quality of the HGH is on par with our standards. So if you see a HGH product listed as ‘in stock’ on our list, you can rest assured its been tested and the potency is on point.

when we are looking to buy more HGH we contact several of our HGH suppliers and will have them send off kits for testing to an independent lab for analysis. If the tests come back on point we place the order and buy. Many times the tests will come back 2 weeks later and show unusually low values, when this happens we just pass on that batch and buy another suppliers HGH that has tested out high. By doing this we are able to sure the HGH we are selling is potent and dosed correctly.

I am proud of the HGH we have on the site right now. The manufacturers in China have come a long way with this over the past 10 years when we first saw HGH coming from China. Many of them now know they can’t pass off low dosed HGH to anyone as we are able to easily test it to confirm its legit. If you have any other questions or comments on this please don’t hesitate to let us know.
