Soma-Max human growth hormone was developed and is manufactured by Maxtreme Pharma. Maxtreme Pharma was established in 2011 to produce high-quality pharmaceuticals which are manufactured in a WHO-GMP certified facility to ensure their production quality. Soma-Max HGH (human growth hormone) represents one of the pre-eminent versions of injectable human growth hormone. Normally, HGH, or somatostatin, is produced by the pituitary gland during normal growth and stimulates muscle growth, bone development, tissue repair, and metabolism. However, as we age production of HGH declines, decreasing 15% every 10 years after the age of 25. Indeed, while the pituitary gland produces 500 mg a day at the age of 20, by age 40 it is only producing 200 mg a day. Human growth hormone has also been demonstrated to be produced at lower levels in obese individuals
By providing the body with additional human growth hormone, it is possible to replace or supplement the effects of the native hormone, including:
Decreasing fat. A New England Journal of Medicine article from 1990 showed a 14% loss in body fat as a result of HGH treatment, and a recent article from Germany describes a 7% loss of subcutaneous fat following 12 weeks of HGH treatment
Tendon and ligament injury repair. An article from Denmark demonstrates that HGH can stimulate both Type I and II pro-collagen production, key peptides in the repair of connective tissue injuries.
Muscle growth. Growth hormone works to stimulate the production of Insulin Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver. IGF-1 has in turn been shown to stimulate uptake by muscle cells of both glucose and amino acids, improving muscle protein synthesis. Indeed, the same New England Journal of Medicine article above describes an increase in muscle mass of 8.8% following HGH treatment.
However, as a polypeptide HGH is broken down in the stomach and intestine. Therefore, oral supplements of growth hormone will not be absorbed into the bloodstream in an active form. By providing the HGH in a purified injectable form, Soma-Max HGH is delivered in a maximum bioavailable form.
