    Dosing HGH - one shot vs multi shots

    Question for you guys that are doing 3 ius or more.

    Are you doing one shot in the morning, or spacing the shots out during the day? Does it even matter? For example if you have worked up to 4ius or more - is there an advantage to having one large "blast" or more frequent smaller blasts...

    Re: Dosing HGH - one shot vs multi shots

    I've done it both ways (shooting 5IU daily) and haven't noticed a difference other than when I do all at once I feel quite a bit more lethargic post injection.

    The half life of HGH is (biologically) between 9 and 17 hours so theory would tell us that injecting twice a day would create a more steady level in the body. BUT you have to remember that GH within the body is only secreted in spurts as well, so there may not be a need for "steady" levels, as opposed to a hormone like testosterone.

    HGH spikes quickly after injection, then gradually declines so, in a sense, you can "spike" it twice a day.

    All this is speculation at this point as there is no hard, fast study on HGH injection timing for anti-aging purposes as it is not an FDA approved practice (yet). Lots of broscience backed by interpretations of previous studies.

    ^^^ steady levels of HGH is termed a GH "bleed" and is a feminized pattern of release.

    My theory behind why I hit 4iu at once is because I want to take it when cortisol is at it's highest. Post workout or mid afternoon.

    Re: Dosing HGH - one shot vs multi shots

    this actually makes a lot of sense. I take mine at night right before bed just because i hate feeling lethargic lo. That's about as technical as I've gotten with it.

    Re: Dosing HGH - one shot vs multi shots

    Over 4iu I break it up into two shots one in the morning when I wake 5am. I read this is when you natural GH is lowest and also one of the peaks for cortisol.
    I workout at 6:30am. I take my 2nd shot at 2-3pm this is another point when cortisol hits hard.

    I have doNe it all in one shot. The issue I have as mentioned above is I become lathagic. I have a hard time staying awake.

    Re: Dosing HGH - one shot vs multi shots

    i had done both ways but ran serostim (pharma grade) hgh at pretty low dosage for 6months. i liked and would do it gain.

    BUT there is a whole HGH protocol where guys blast all weeks dose in 1 injection per week. So they would take like 20iu 1x per week instead of 4iu a day

    this speaks to the natural growth "spurts" that you have when you are in puberty growing ...

    guys swear that they get good gains like this.

    Sounding even better. Off the sleeping meds but not sleeping yet. This could be the secret.

    Not every hgh thread needs an old fart chiming in since much of this stuff is opinion based.

    With that said as long as you are actually taking hgh, life is good!

    but damn I could talk about blasting! Attempting to mimick puberty and whether or not our body continues to produce gh when we inject it from the outside.
