Eutropin LG 4IU (GH, somatotropic hormone, STH, HGH, somatotropin, somatropin) is the peptide hormone of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, which is used in sports to form the muscular relief. Growth hormone or somatotropin (from the Latin soma – body) gets its name because in young people it causes a pronounced acceleration of linear (long) growth, mainly due to the growth of long tubular bones of the extremities.
The basal concentration (norm) of growth hormone in the blood is 1-5 ng / ml, during the peaks can rise to 10-20 and even 45 ng / ml.
Pharmacological properties of Eutropin LG 4IU
- Anabolic action – causes muscle growth
- Anti-catabolic action – inhibits the destruction of muscles
- Reduces the fatty layer
- Regulates the use of energy
- Accelerates wound healing
- Has a rejuvenating effect
- Stimulates the repeated growth of internal organs (atrophy with age)
- It causes bone growth and increases growth in young people to 26 years (before the closure of growth zones), strengthens the bones
- Increases blood glucose levels
- Strengthens immunity
Some effects of the drug itself, but a significant part of its effects is mediated by the insulin-like growth factor IGF-1 (formerly called somatomedin C), which is produced by the action of somatotropin in the liver and stimulates the growth of most internal organs. Virtually all the effects of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in sports are associated with the action of IGF-1.
Eutropin LG 4IU in Bodybuilding
Initially, growth hormone drugs began to be used for medical purposes, but almost simultaneously this hormone was widely used in sports, which is associated with its ability to increase muscle mass and reduce fat. The first preparations of growth hormone were an extract of the pituitary gland of corpses and only in 1981 a recombinant drug of somatotropin was made.
In 1989, somatotropin was banned by the Olympic Committee. Despite the fact that the use of somatotropin for athletic purposes is prohibited, in the last decade the sales of the drug have increased several times. Mainly, growth hormone is used in sports, especially in bodybuilding, where it is combined with other anabolic drugs.
