Panda,

Okay, let me first say that I am not a doctor or scientist, and I have not tried this product.  Nevertheless, it appears to be some kind of supplement that is marketed as "homeopathic" human growth hormone, whatever that means. 

I would stay away from anything like this.  Note the disclaimer at the bottom of the page that says that the claims made in the ad have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  Note also the statement that: "This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."  So basically you have a product that (1) admittedly isn't true human growth hormone, (2) is completely unregulated in the United States by the F.D.A., and (3) is not intended to treat or cure any disease.  To me, it's nothing but snake oil, and I'd never waste my money on it.  Supplements like this exist in a legal grey area here in the U.S., and unlike drugs, they don't have to meet any standards, so you have no idea what you're taking.

If you think human growth hormone may help you, then discuss that with your doctor and get a prescription for the real thing.  At least then you will have the assurance that what you are taking is a medication that has been tested and certified as safe and efficacious for its intended use.  A person with a weakened immune system really should be careful about ingesting products about which almost nothing is known.

Just my two cents . . .

Panda,

If you're planning on getting pregnant, then that's all the more reason *not* to try something like this.  As I said, it's an unregulated supplement, and you won't be able to tell your doctor what's in it because the manufacturer is under no obligation to disclose that kind of information.  (At least not here in the U.S.  Things may be different in Israel.  I don't know.)  I think the possible risks to you and your baby aren't worth taking, since it's almost certain that this stuff is probably the equivalent of a sugar pill, and that's if you're lucky.

Note that a number of people in the U.S. have suffered adverse events from taking unregulated supplements.  There's just no way to tell with stuff like this.  I advise you to save your money and work with your doctor using medications that have proven their effectiveness.

Panda:

Studies of body builders have shown HGH to be of minimal value in building muscle... especially when compared to steroids.   High doses of HGH have been shown to strip fat.  If you want volume, my advice would be intensity, supersetting your legs to complete fatigue.  If you want weight gain, eat more.

u say eat more as if I didn't try this already , come on ! Don't u know that even if I eat all they the fat / weight wont go to the right places ? This wont do any good. The only way I thought I will be able to get some volume is for what I read here by taking HGH .

Dear Panda,

So you realize this thing called Homeopathic HGH is not HGH but a trumped up marketing substance that is akin to snake oil? Right?

Once again Panda, even if you went on HGH, your going to need to build muscle. You need protein, (lots) and exercise. You can't get that in a pill. Even if you took steroids, you have to exercise those legs if you want something to happen. You might want to ride a bike, which I do, great results on the legs. Or In Line Skating, really works the thighs. (Have you seen speed skaters thighs?)

You can do it!

Panda:

You say:  "I want so bad to start exersice and give my leggs a at leat some volume but i think without hgh it wont be shown much of difference..."
Believe me... it WILL make a huge difference without the HGH as long as you eat properly and put some real intensity into your exercise program... and, above all, be consistent and patient.  I've been exercising on a regular (about 4-6 times/weekly) for 25 years.  I've watched women come into the gym, and with patience, transform their physique.  But it takes time... about one year of dedication to complete the transformation.  This depends on your age, of course. 
I actually do use HGH... the real thing... but not for the gym... I am using it to boost my CD4 count.  Also, I'm "microdosing" it... which is to say I'm not looking for physical enhancement because my daily injection is really small.  It does seem to have boosted my CD4 after using it for over a year now. Without HGH, my CD4 had slowly risen over a 2 year period from 112 to 360, but then began dropping again.  At 280 I started the HGH.  My CD4 as of 3 months ago had reached 440... a record high for me!  I'll get another result in a couple weeks and hoping the trend continues until I real that "normal" range point of 500+.
I would NEVER take the pills.  The molecule for HGH is too big to survive the digestive tract and that is why the pills are a whoax.  It will take you all of 15 minutes of Internet research to verify this.  Please don't waste your precious $$$.

Panda,

Homeopathy is a load of malarkey. Click here for the skinny on this notorious form of quackery.

Don't waste your shekels.
