Why You Should Never Buy Human Growth Hormone Online

Updated on January 29, 2015


HGH is a natural sourced hormone that can be found in the pituitary gland of the human brain. Made up of 191 amino acids, encoded by DNA combined together for to make a protein sequence. In the body, the function of HGH is to promote growth in children, regulate fat and sugar metabolism and muscle and bone growth. HGH can be artificially synthesized by pharmacies and selectively used in certain drugs therapies.


  • Prior 1985: HGH extracted from human cadavers, running the risk of cross-contamination of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease
  • Recombinant DNA developed, so genetic material taken from different sources can be combined together
  • Choh Hao Li. Genentech pioneered and led the first wave of artificial HGH being produced successfully
  • Process to synthesize artificial HGH is through “inclusion body technology” using E.coli bacteria to mass-produce the hormone. HGH is then extracted and purified, with only one additional amino acid when compared to the naturally occurring hormone in the body
  • “Protein secretion technology” developed in 2010 so the E.coli bacteria naturally push out HGH without an extra amino acid
  • Recent technology developed have mouse cells that create HGH identical to hormone in human body


The online market has thousands of websites that claim they have credible overseas pharmacies producing HGH. These “black market” sources should be avoided as many companies dilute, or contaminate HGH with other chemicals. The reason? Purely financial, as authentic natural HGH is very expensive to produce and maintain in a sterile environment. Some reports indicate that chorionic gonadotropin is used instead, as it can easily be mistaken as HGH. You need laboratory testing to tell the two apart.

Synthetic HGH is really difficult to get a hold of in North America. Only a legitimate doctor is able to secure a prescription, after rigorous evaluation. If rejected by a doctor, many individual mistakenly try to go through unreliable sources of HGH. Most of these sources are not real HGH and instead contain mystery drug cocktails sold so overseas pharmacies can make a profit.

Even if you are getting your HGH source from a supplement or health store, beware that many companies exporting these products do not include the illegal chemicals on the label. HGH can ONLY be prescribed my medical practitioners.

HGH is extremely popular drug, ordered by people all around the world. The organization, Partnership for Drug-Free Kids reports around 11 percent of kids in grades 9-12 have taken synthetic HGH at least once. This number is astoundingly high, indicating that body concerns are a growing issue in North America. Individuals want a quick answer to change their body. HGH is reported to give you accelerated growth so you can grow taller or gain muscle mass.

Human Growth Hormones - Does it work?


The only source of pure legitimate human growth hormone is through a doctor’s prescription. Strict FDA controls make sure only regulated pharmacies that use strict quality control procedures can develop the drug. Inspections are common and ensure that you are getting a genuine hormone.

Despite the FDA’s control, there are thousands of sources that are trying to sell the product online. Any supplemental pills that claim to contain HGH are false. HGH molecules are and must be injected, as any oral or skin absorbance destroys the structure.

Yet, the road to get taller is not lost. There is reliable HGH stimulating choices that can be made. A unique combination of nutrient supplements such as glutamine, arginine and other amino acids can be used to stimulate your body’s own HGH production effectively in individuals after puberty. This should be used in combination with exercise, quality sleep and healthy life choices.
