    Was talking with an old friend, he rushed, pledged, I didn't.

    2 years later the dude is 2 inches taller, and 40 lbs heavier. Almost no fat. He attributes it to cheap HGH from the house dealer.

    Apparently, most frat guys are on it.

    What are the side effects?

    Tried to get him to stop, but you know...

    Doesn't HGH cost a fortune?

    Doubt the kid's getting actual HGH. Probably getting some horse testosterone from Mexico. The legit stuff from anti-aging clinics isn't cheap. It also happens to work on everything, not just muscles.

    I doubt there is any epidemic but the majority of PED users are recreational gym rats just looking to get huge or lift heavier shit. Check out the documentary Bigger, Faster, Stronger some time. Its good stuff.

    Less than it used to, but yeah. You're probably looking at $20k for a year, minimum.

    The side effects are pretty obvious, as it tends to make everything grow, it will enlarge organs which can always cause problems.

    But as has been stated here, he probably isn't on actual HGH.

    Apparently, the undersized AEpi kid gets it from his doc. Lie or not, probably a bad idea injecting yourself with anything

    I've been doing research on all supplements, including HGH, and the truth is that the body's organs only grow in a very, very small sample of people. In fact it's fairly rare. However, that is just one of the main reasons you should never do it without medical supervision. Other reasons are dormant cancer cells in your body and the heavy tax burden HGH has on your liver.

    Peptides are far safer and much better then HGH.

    Turns out it was beta agonists

    And pro hormones

    Only a couple have HGH, but verry rare.

    If you have a Rx from your doctor, for hormone replacement, then it's legal. And it is real HGH. FACT.

    A coworker of mine ran out of his stuff and ordered jintropin online. They mailed it to Texas and put art supplies on the package. He is doing 6-8 iu a day and the only bad side effect thus far is carpal tunnel.

    HGH is a chain of 191 amino acids, after it goes though your liver, and other organs, it's broken up into smaller chains called peptides. The HGH doesn't do any work, it's the peptides that do all the work in your body. Peptides are the actual chains of aminos that go into all of your cells and does the building and repairing of your skin, muscles, hair nails and vital organs etc, etc..

    You can get them everywhere. Google peptides for sale. But, I wouldn't mess with them... Not worth it, IMHO.

    It's not HGH. HGH, by definition, must come from a human. Most therapies with molecularly similar or identical makeups are generally referred to as GH or sGH.
