Getropin started to become very popular back in 2008 and has remained so ever since. Its availability and price were the best selling point about this brand of HGH. It comes from China, where most underground HGH comes from but its remained a favourite of body builders worldwide so the makers must be doing something right.
There have been some slight issues with purity. Or perceived issues at least. Some batches of getropin (though not all) seem to have caused an immune response in some users, this manifested itself in causing a redness near the injection site. This could have been caused either by the getropin not being properly purified after production (recombinant HGH production uses bacteria to make the product) or it could have contained some of the older style 192 amino acid variant of HGH.
Its more likely though that there was some problems with purification and some bacterial cellular debris had been left in the final product rather than 192 contamination. We say this because the problem seemed to affect only one batch back in 2010. Since there would be no point in using the old method of making HGH (the 192 method) then returning to the better 191 method, we say it was probably a purification problem. In any case we haven’t heard of any problems with it for several years now.
Getropin comes in boxes of 10x10iu vials with the accompanying water to mix it with. The vials are blue tops and this has led some users to say that in fact getropin is a high quality generic HGH product that has just been relabelled as getropin. If this is the case then this would explain the very decent price tag. And, as long as it seems to be of good quality and without any purification issues we see no reason not to use it.
