What is Somatropin?

Somatropin 6x is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring Human Growth Hormone (HGH).

Somatropin is artificially produced using a method called “recombined DNA technology”. The human body isn’t at all able to distinguish Somatropin from the naturally occurring HGH. They both provide the same results and perform the same bodily tasks.

Our products are shipped directly from our warehouse in North Carolina from our GrowthMountain.com offices.  Nowadays Somatropin is one of the most highly desired hormonal chemical compound. The synthetic version of the HGH has been often referred to as “the Fountain of Youth”. And although Somatropin is currently highly used by athletes and body builders in order to boost their performance and strength, it is not by any means a form of anabolic steroid!

The naturally produced Human Growth Hormone, as well as its synthetic version – the Somatropin – are both protein based peptide hormones.

And although it is true that both Somatropin and HGH induce a strong anabolic affect, this doesn’t make them steroids! Anabolism is the natural process through which new cells are produced within the body. Even food has an androgenic effect.

How Somatropin works?

As we mentioned it before, Somatropin is the synthetic version of the The Human Growth Hormone. This is a protein based peptide hormone which is naturally produced by the human body. The HGH secretion in our body is typically regulated by the hypothalamus gland. The hypothalamus is located in the brain. However, it is another gland – the pituitary – the one responsible for producing this hormone.


The Human Growth Hormone is mainly responsible for metabolic processes such as the production and regeneration of cells throughout the body. And that is not all: HGH works by enhancing the pace of conversion of the amino acids. This helps the body to function and perform at an optimal rate. The Human Growth Hormone also plays a crucial role in converting body-fat into energy, thus increasing the metabolic efficiency of our bodies.

However, our body’s natural secretion of HGH will decline with age. And it is also dictated by the general state of a person’s health. By supplementing with Somatropin, we can enjoy the same benefits of the naturally occurring HGH. The synthetic version of the hormone performs absolutely the same and it is indistinguishable from the natural version. Therefore it will give you the same benefits and more.  This is mostly because when supplementing with Somatropin, the HGH levels are increased beyond normal levels and thus the metabolic processes for which the HGH is responsible are also enhanced.

What are the main benefits of taking Somatropin supplements?

The benefits of Somatropin are truly great. Somatropin is considered a nearly perfect hormonal compound: it provides great benefits with minor to no risk of side-effects. The benefits provided by Somatropin include:

  • Muscle tissue growth
  • Increased energy levels
  • Increased stamina and endurance
  • Increased metabolism
  • Increased fat burning
  • A decrease in the percentage of body fat
  • Increase recovery time from injuries or diseases
  • Healthier, younger looking skin
  • Less age-related health problems
  • Faster and more effective muscle, joint and bone repair
  • A decrease in stress levels
  • Improved focus and clarity of thought

Am I eligible to take Somatropin?

Before considering supplementing with Somatropin, you should consider your past and present medical conditions. You should be particularly careful if you suffer from any form of allergies, if you have breathing problems or asthma or if you suffer from high blood pressure. You are not a good candidate for Somatropin if you have cancer, liver or kidney disease or any form of pancreatic disorder.


You should not take Somatropin if you recently suffered a trauma, if you had open heart or stomach surgery or if you suffer from lung failure. You should consult with a physician if you want to take Somatropin and you have hypothyroidism, if you take diabetes medication or if you are on steroids.

Also, you should tell your physician about any other medication that you currently take, including birth control. You might need to modify the dosages of these medicines while you use Somatropin.

What is the recommended dose of Somatropin? What is the recommended duration of a Somatropin cycle?

While many other popular performance enhancing hormonal compounds (such as the anabolic steroids group) show very quick results and are not recommended for long cycles, Somatropin must be used for much longer periods of time in order to show its true benefits. Somatropin takes time to induce its positive effects on the body.


Four months of use (16 weeks) is generally considered to be the minimal amount of time needed for it to show its positive effects. However, Somatropin can be taken for up to 6 or 8 months consecutively, or even longer. In this case, longer cycles have proven to be far more effective. The prolonged use of this drug is considered very safe and without risks – Somatropin is without a doubt the most mild and friendly hormonal compound on the market in terms of side-effects.

As long as Somatropin is taken responsibly and the user is not suffering from any other underlying medical conditions, the negative side-effects of this drug are practically non-existent.

Somatropin also works great when combined with many anabolic steroids. That’s why many individuals use Somatropin during an anabolic steroid cycle. However, if you continue to take the Somatropin after completing the cycle, the positive results and the muscle gain will become more permanent than if you were to take steroids without Somatropin.

Somatropin standard dosage:

In terms of dosage, 1-2 IU is considered to be the perfect daily dose for most women looking to enhance their physical performance and increase their strength. This dosage is satisfactory for those in search of a leaner physique and for those looking to boost their metabolism or stave the negative effects of aging.

For men, the recommended dose is considered to be around 4IU per day. Smaller doses – 1-2 IU can still prove beneficial for a patient looking to correct a HGH imbalance, but 4IU is considered to be the standard benchmark. Slightly bigger doses than this will not prove significantly beneficial.

However, for those looking for a major improvement, the doses can be upped to double digit numbers.This, however, increases the risks of developing negative side effects.

How do I take Somatropin?

Somatropin is typically injected into a muscle or under the skin. Most people taking Somatropin learned how to self-medicate. However, you should not self-inject this medicine if you do not fully understand how to administer the injection and how to properly dispose of used needles and syringes.

When you inject Somatropin, try to use a different place each time you administer the injection. It is best if you do not administer the shot in the same place two times in a row. Also, you should avoid injecting any medicine into a muscle that is sore, injured or infected. Use any disposable needle and syringe only once!

Also, be careful about the way you dispose of the used needles: use a special puncture-proof container and keep it out of reach of any children or pets. Do not throw used needles in the garbage dispenser or in the garbage bin!

Very important: Do not shake the Somatropin bottle! This can affect the chemical composition of the drug. If you need to mix Somatropin with another liquid or diluent, use a swirling motion rather than shake. Also, do not use the mixture if it has changed color or if it has particles in it.

Depending on the Somatropin brand that you are using and the diluent that you are mixing it with, you may need to use the mixture right away or you may be able to store it for later use. Carefully read and follow the instructions to learn about proper storage of your Somatropin before and after it has been mixed.

What are the possible side effects of Somatropin?

Somatropin is definitely the most side-effect friendly hormonal compound available! It is in very well-tolerated by both men and women and, as long as the user does not suffer from any underlying medical condition, this drug is perfectly safe! Not many hormonal compounds can make such claim! Somatropin is generally regarded to be as safe as Aspirin or Ibuprofen.

Nevertheless, as it is with all drugs, some negative side-effects can manifest. However, these side effects are very rare and are in most cases dose dependent: people taking large doses of Somatropin are more likely to experience these side effects. They include:

  1. Water retention
  2. Headaches, nausea, vomiting
  3. An increase in heart rate
  4. Dry mouth syndrome
  5. Increased thirst and/or hunger
  6. Blurred vision
  7. Tingling or swelling of the hands & feet
  8. Irregular bone growth
  9. Carpel tunnel syndrome
  10. Cold-like symptoms (stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat)

Water retention, headaches, palpitations and the sensation of tingling are the most commonly experienced side-effects. They are also the mildest.  The more severe side effects are rare and are often associated with careless use, unhealthy dosage or other factors.

In conclusion:

Nowadays, Somatropin is considered one of the most popular and in the same time highly desired hormonal compound available. And its popularity far exceeds the performance enhancing world. More and more everyday people are seeking this hormone in order to improve their general health and to increase their endurance, their energy levels and their stamina.

The benefits of Somatropin may be enjoyed by almost anybody, including children (under strict medical supervision, of course!). And because it is almost side-effects-free, Somatropin is considered by many a nearly perfect hormonal compound, with great benefits for the human body.
