MedHead Message:

Buying any type of Human Growth Hormone online is one of the biggest wastes of money. There are precisely ZERO physiologic, biochemical, or pharmacological ways for HGH to absorb through the stomach (gets instantly destroyed by stomach acid). “Homeopathic HGH” is especially egregious, since it has no actual active component at all. Do yourself a favor and save the $1200 per year by buying yourself a gym membership, then go work out a few days per week. You can thank me later.
