Why HGH costs as much as it does

HGH price? Just how much does Human Growth Hormone cost?

The HGH price when it first came onto the market several years ago was astronomical. At first it was only Hollywood stars that could afford it. And although the price has steadily come down over the years it can still be out of the range of a lot of people.

A bit about the historic price of HGH

A little over thirty years ago, the only place you could get HGH was from cadavers, yes dead people. This meant it was very rare and only ever used for research and in treatment of growth disorders. Its no use even mentioning the HGH price because you just couldn’t get it. This was probably a good thing in hindsight because it turns out cadaveric HGH was found to be infected. It was found to contain prions which caused Creutzfeldt Jakob disease. So the unavailability of HGH at this time probably saved a few lives.

Genetech was the first one to make it synthetically

Then in 1979 Genetech came up with a way to make limitless amounts of the stuff. And, although expensive, anyone could see that the price would soon come down as others began to make their own HGH.

Powder form HGH is cheaper

HGH Powder prices are less than those of pens

This is the best value HGH. Its in powder form and you have to mix it yourself. And so the price is reflected in this and its usually much cheaper. A box of good quality HGH can cost in the region of $300-$600 for a 100iu box. Bear in mind the equivalent cost of the same amount of HGH in pen form could be 2-4 the cost. The small inconvenience of having to buy some bacteriostatic water and syringes (which you can get from ebay) would seem to be well worth it then.

 

 

 

Cost of HGH pens is more than powders

The Nordipen is used to inject HGH made by Norditropin

The price of HGH is considerably more than the pens for a couple of reasons. First of all these pens are quite sophisticated bits of equipment. Designed to hold and mix the HGH powder and solvent and then deliver it  in an exact amount. Secondly the pens are usually made by major pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, Eli Lilly and Novo Nordisk etc. These companies always charge more for their HGH than the others anyway.

 

 

A look at some of the prices of several HGH brands


Ansomone HGH price  $250-$300 per 100iu box

Ansomone comes in boxes of 100iu and is manufactured in China by Anhui Anke. Anhui Anke is a massive company in China and Ansomone is just one of the products it makes. The quality is excellent. A lot of people make the mistake of think that because a product is made in China it must be inferior. This is not the case with Ansomone. Typically in the west a box of 100iu will set you back about $250. It can be purchased more cheaply in bulk and several websites offer bulk deals.

Riptropin HGH price $150-200 per 100iu box

Riptropin hails from China and comes with mixed reviews. Its made by an unknown manufacturer so its probably re-labelled generic HGH. However some people give it great reviews and constantly buy it. For others though they often complain of sore injection sites so it could be contaminated with some 192 amino acid HGH (Somatrem) And this is reflected in the HGH price of this particular product, being one of the cheapest on the market.

Biotropin comes in different size boxes with different names Wellness is a 60iu box, Fitness is a 100iu box and Performance is a 120iu box. Its made by Life-Tech labs from Hong Kong and is making quite a splash on the HGH scene. It has excellent reviews and is easily authenticated on the companies website. Life-Tech are fully ISO 9001 Certified and are not some fly by night operation. We would recommend this product to anyone. They have been around since 2006 but only in the last few years have people began to notice how good their HGH price is.

Biotropin from Life-Tech labs continue to make a great contribution to quality HGH at a fair price

Getropin HGH price $220-$290 per 100iu box

Generally regarded as a “value brand” Getropin still remains popular. There was an issue back in 2010 as regards purity and it took them a long time to get back their reputation. However there have been no problems since and I wouldn’t hesitate to use Getropin myself if there was nothing else available.

Getropin is seen as a value brand and the HGH price reflects it
  • Manufactured by: Unknown Chinese Lab
  • In production since: 2007-up to present day
  • Originating from: China, Chongqing
  • Cost: $2.20-$3 per IU
  • HGH variant: 191/192? amino acid (has had some purity issues)
  • Purity: 3/5
  • Availability: 4/5
  • Value for money: 4/5

Hygetropin HGH price $300-$600 per 100iu box

Ive always remained mystified why hygetropin is so popular. Don’t get me wrong its sort of OK on the quality fronts but there are much cheaper and better options available. Maybe its first timers using it because it seems to have a memorable name. Hygetropin is also one of the most faked HGH products around today, just because it has a well known name. It comes in different sized packages. 200iu kits 25x8iu vials which blue tops. And 100iu kits 10x10iu which have yellow tops.

Hygetropin comes in 2 different box sizes 100iu and 200iu
  • Manufactured by: Hygene Biopharm Co., Ltd.
  • In production since: 2008-up to present day
  • Originating from: China
  • Cost: $3-$6 per IU
  • HGH variant: 191 amino acid
  • Purity: 3/5
  • Availability: 3/5
  • Value for money: 1/5

Hypertropin HGH price $350 -$600 per 100iu box

Hypertropin HGH is made by NeoGenica Bioscience and is shipped from China. We consider the price of this HGH to be fair. Although as its shipped from China it can take a couple of weeks to arrive and when it does it could have been subjected to heat degradation. Maybe this is an issue the NeoGenica will resolve in the future. The company itself is made from ex staff of Gensci which stopped production for a while.

HGH prices for hypertropin are OK, not a bargain but you are not buying an inferior product
  • Manufactured by: NeoGenica BioScience Ltd.
  • In production since: 2007-up to present day

  • Availability: 3/5
  • Value for money: 4/5

Jintropin HGH price $400-$800 per 100iu box

What can I say about Jintropin that hasn’t been said already. Jintropin was one of the first HGH products on the market that people could afford in meaningful amounts. GeneScience Pharmaceuticals Ltd (Jinsai) make this product. It ceased production for a certain period. It was during this time that fakers somewhat ruined its name with inferior imitations. The real Jintropin is a quality product and so prices are a little higher than others.

Jintropin the HGH which started it all (for us mortals anyway) $400-$800 per 100iu box
  • Manufactured by: GeneScience Pharmaceuticals Ltd (Jinsai)
  • In production since: 1996-up to the present day
  • Originating from: China
  • Cost: $4-$8 per IU
  • HGH variant: 191 amino acid
  • Availability: 4/5
  • Purity: 5/5
  • Value for money: 4/5

Kigtropin HGH price $200-$300 per 100iu

Have you heard about the mystery of Kigtropin? No! Well the mystery is that nobody knows who the manufacturer is. Its probably a Chinese underground lab. Even so it consistently gets both good and bad reviews. This is probably because its easy to fake (being unbranded) So you take a bit of a chance buying this product. The only thing we can say is it should have blue tops.

Kigtropin is usually $200-300 per 100iu box but it is susceptible as its not known who the manufacturer is.
  • Manufactured by: Nobody knows (maybe more than one)
  • In production since: 2005-up to present day
  • Originating from: China
  • Cost: $2-$3 per IU
  • HGH variant: 191 amino acid (supposedly)
  • Purity: variable
  • Availability: 4/5
  • Value for money: 2/5

Serostim HGH price $600-1200 per 126iu box

Serostim is slightly different in that it comes in boxes of 126iu. It comes in other sizes too but the 126iu box is the HGH price we are mostly familiar with. This is one of the more trusted HGH brands being from a major pharmaceutical company. So you know if you buy Serostim you are getting a quality product thats been made in a certified laboratory rather than being mixed up in someones bathtub.

Serostim costs a little more than underground HGH powders. And so the price reflects this at $600-1200 per 126iu box
  • Manufactured by:MD Serono, Ltd. A subsidiary of Merck KGaA, Germany
  • In production since: 2006-up to present day
  • Originating from: USA/Europe

  • HGH variant: 191 amino acid (pure somatropin)
  • Purity: 5/5
  • Availability: 3/5
  • Value for money: 4/5

Taitropin HGH price $250-400 per 100iu

Taitropin from the Hong Kong pharmaceutical holdings company started off as an average sort of HGH with an average sort of HGH price. But over the years Taitropin has become more refined and the quality is now very good. A lot of HGH brands start off with a good reputation then fakers ruin the name. It hasn’t really happened with Taitropin as they have improved the product and the packaging. The take product authentication seriously which helped keep imitators at bay.

Glotropin HGH price $250-400 per 100iu

Glotropin is often overlooked in favour of some of the more well known brands but it shouldn’t be. It regularly gets good reviews and feedback especially on HGH serum tests. It was made by  Global Biotech Ltd but now it seems to be manufactured by Global Anabolic Org. Its probably them same company but just changed the name for legal/business reasons. It can be found for sale in certain licensed pharmacies in Thailand where you can buy it without prescription.

Genotropin HGH price $350-1500 per 36iu 

Genotropin is one of the most sought after HGH brands. Its made by Pfizer. It is pharmaceutical grade and its is the purest highest quality HGH you can get. The price of course reflects this. The reason you can see such a spread in the HGH price for Genotropin is because you can find it for sale online from foreign pharmacies. In particular you can find Genotropin made for the Turkish market which is a fraction of the USA or European price. The only difference is that a sticker in Turkish has been placed on the packaging. You can easily just peel it off to reveal the English underneath.

There is a large spread in the price of Genotropin. This is because it can now be sourced from Turkey where it is much cheaper

Gen-tropin AQx comes in a box of 5x3ml cartridges, each cartridge contains 3ml of solution  containing 30iu of product. So the whole box contains 150iu. The HGH price of this product differs from vendor to vendor so its worthwhile shopping around if you want to buy Gen-tropin AQx. It is designed to be used with a cartridge but its other selling point is that it can also be used with a syringe. Its pre-mixed and in liquid form when you buy it.
