Jintropin is a growth hormone drug (hormone) that can have a wide range of medical and sporting uses. It is produced by GeneScience Pharmaceuticals Co in China. In sports practice, growth hormone injections are regularly used by athletes to achieve high quality muscle growth, weight loss (fat loss), strengthen ligaments, joints and bones.
In turn, for medicinal purposes, this agent can be used in replacement therapy of endogenous growth hormone deficiency in adults and children, with osteoporosis, cachexia, significant loss of muscle mass due to the disease, with Shereshevsky-Turner syndrome and other cases.
The active ingredient of the drug, as already noted, is growth hormone (growth hormone or simply somatropin). Natural GH is one of the products of the anterior pituitary gland and is a polypeptide (such as prolactin or placental lactogen). In structure, it is a protein, composed of 191 amino acids. Its production in the body takes place in peaks (maximum secretion is observed at night, after an hour or two since falling asleep).
Jintropin growth hormone, if you follow the recommendations, has a pronounced effect on the user's body. It has anabolic and anti-catabolic effects. When injections are performed, there is an increase in protein production and inhibition of its decay, a decrease in subcutaneous fat deposition, an increase in fat burning processes and an improvement in the ratio of muscle to fat mass.
Fact: In children / adolescents with uncovered growth areas, jintropine (somatropin) can cause an increase in growth in length. This is due to the development of long bones in the limbs. It is known that growth hormone improves the absorption of beneficial elements (minerals and vitamins) in the body, in particular the absorption of calcium by bone tissue. The results of its use are the strengthening of bones, ligaments, joints and skeleton in general, and it also has a positive effect on immune defenses.
At moderate doses, there is a risk of developing the following disorders:
- altered appetite
In case of hormone abuse, the athlete can face much more dangerous deviations:
- impairment of natural thyroid function
- deterioration of pancreatic function
- overgrowth of bone and/or cartilage tissue
