Preparation, Mixing & Care
HGH usage requires care: molecules of somatropin are extremely fragile and can be ruined by severe shaking, light or heat. That’s why make sure you store HGH in a cool place, preferably refrigerator, and act carefully when reconstituting the hormone vial. The best way to store it is in a fridge that has a temperature of between 2°C to 6°C both before and after it has been reconstituted. All brands of HGH need to be refrigerated once they have been reconstituted, a process that involves mixing the lyophilised powder with the bacteriostatic water.
To prepare for growth hormone use and to administer it properly, you will need two important things:
True growth hormone comes in the form of dried (lyophilized) powder that needs to be reconstituted with water. Several types of water will work for this: sterile bacteriostatic water, normal saline, or plain sterile water for injections. In general, the choice of water for HGH usage depends on how soon the vial will be used up: bacteriostatic water stays sterile for the longest period of time (3 – 3.5 weeks), but if the dosage is higher and the vial will be used up sooner, other options can be chosen.
For HGH usage, it is recommended to prepare two types of syringes: one for mixing the vial, and the other for administering it. Insulin type syringes work well for HGH injections, especially the ones with 100 markings (they make it easier for you to determine the dose).
