    Is HGH worth the price?

    I'm flirting with the idea of HGH. I only have a couple of friends that have used it, but they say the best thing about it is that its more than just the results in the gym, it's that they feel f---ing great all around, like they're young again. I'm 30 and I've found that my years of playing football through college, lifting, doing MMA and being active in general are taking its toll on my body. Back in the day, I thought about working out pretty much 24/7 but now my joints ache, I'm sore a lot more often and my work sucks (60 to 80 hours a week). I'm losing that drive that I used to have.

    I've done pro hormone cycles before, but I hate the drop in motivation I get during PCT, which I'm sure is partly a mental thing. But anyways, I want to give HGH a shot.

    I know it's a lot more expensive than AAS, so I might hit up this anti-aging clinic in San Jose, Costa Rica that looks fairly legit and prescribes Norditropin pens. It's still expensive, but a lot cheaper than in the states. My question to those that have used HGH before, is it worth the price?

    Any other tips or advise would be greatly appreciated.

    my .02

    change the title to "is LEGIT HGH worth the price" (don't actually change the title, just critiquing)

    that out of the way, I imagine it really depends on what the actual price is.

    If I could take 2~3 iu/day and keep it to around $200/mo, I'd consider, although I'm not considering ANY hgh right at the moment

    Yeah, probably should have led with LEGIT.

    This clinic is about double that price, they said to expect $500/month

    Like all drugs in this sport, there is no silver bullet. its a combo of genetics, diet, lifestyle and of course workout frequency/intensity etc.

    Im no expert but I would say gh before 40+ is an overkill as the body still produces some gh at 30 and lower so it would be a waste. but then again bodies differ and this blanket statement could be valid for some but not all people.

    I have been on gh for a year (as of yesterday May 10th) and I cannot complain. it did a lot in terms of fat burning especially around the middle (love handles etc). I take gh along with T4. but then i also changed my diet, cut down on alcohol consumption and eradicated white bread from my diet. first period i almost eliminated all carbs but then, with the help of the nutrition section I was able to dial in a diet which was inline with my lifestyle. I combined AAS with gh (this is my second AAS cycle within the gh cycle) and my gains were very good compared to previous cycles I did without gh.

    as for feeling well and all that...IMO its a mental thing and related to many factors....working out makes me feel great...add to it the fact that I know I am taking something to make me better, it boosts my spirits even more. I do go through periods when I feel bad and such...this would be related to work/family etc as any normal man does. also by nature I am someone who usually has an optimistic look on life so I cannot say if gh helped in that area or not...

    many will tell you that you feel great etc but I think you cannot take a manic-depressive person, pump them full of gh and expect them to become joyfull and happy people overnight....

    one thing i can say: in the last couple of months I was having to work 30 hours non stop with around 4 hours of sleep every 28-30 hours in a not so good environment (Baghdad/Iraq)...at 44 i was surprised at my energy and capability to do so when other my age would be dropping off like flies but then again I cannot say for sure it was the gh...it could be but there is no scientific proof of this...at least none that I know of so I will not make bro science statements here...

    I also agree with TR as to the importance of having LEGIT/REAL gh and not some knockoff cooked in some backhouse clinic...

    hope this helps sheds some light.

    I agree it helps a lot after 40. I'm 52 and been on GH for 3 years. Helps a lot with aging. I look better at 52 then at 42. But also cleaned up my diet, work out and cut back on the beer. I flip between 2-4ius 5/2. I take 30 day breaks when side effects kick in. Mostly CTS and Edema are my typical sides.

    I've been reading on the HGH vs. TRT debate, and there are some that have taken the position that you can achieve the same results with TRT as you can with HGH. For a much lower price.

    Something to consider and learn about.

    ^ this debate is occurring in the Anti Aging community, and not so much in the BB community.

    You need to give full spectrum blood work a thought. It's where you start.

    ^^^^^^^ that.

    self medication might work in some cases but never in HRT and TRT. with these things one cannot go by feeling and using without a blood pannel defeats the purpose of the medication in the first place which is to live longer, healthier and eventually happier

    hgh does have some great benefits but I think it is only a piece of the puzzle. I feel better on trt then I did on hgh alone but that is just me. And yes......at the time it was legit hgh. I was curious about it and was able to do 9 months worth both on cycle and off.

    I'm 54 and been on TRT for about 8 years. After 2 years on TRT I went on HGH. I've been on HGH for 6 years 5iu/ed. I feel GREAT!!!! The main thing I notice is that HGH keeps belly fat off. That's me in the avatar when I was 53. I still look the same. HGH is amazing stuff along with TRT.

    That's awesome, your avatar might as well be an ad for HGH. Keep up the good work

    For about $10-12/iu, that's not a bad price.

    Which type of GH is the Clinic Offering?
