How much does HGH Cost in Mexico?
A typical month's supply will cost $450. The same HGH from the same manufacturer as in the USA.
If you buy it in the USA, you pay $1250 on average for the exact same medication from the exact same manufacturer.
The leading brand of human growth hormone now in Mexico and the United States is Norditropin.
Norditropin is the only leading pharmaceutical brand of growth hormone that comes premixed.
It can go 14-21 days without refrigeration due to the proprietary preservation technology of Novo Nordisk.
Why is HGH so expensive in the USA?
HGH is 3-times (or more!) in the United States than in many other countries. The main reasons for this are:
1) pharmaceutical middlemen called "Pharmacy Benefit Managers" (PBMs)
2) and the list / retail-pricing strategies set by big-pharma companies.
This is why many states are looking to send their government-insured workers to Tijuana and Canada for some medications. Utah just passed the "right to buy legislation" so it's governement-insured workforce can get reimbursed for their prescription medications if purchased in Tijuana.
For more information on how Pharmacy Benefit Managers drive up the price of HGH and other medications in the United States, please visit our HGH Cost webpage.
How do I know the medication is not counterfeit?
We only prescribe name-brand "FDA Approved" pharmaceutical HGH from major manufacturers like Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, and Merck.
The old back alley days of counterfeit medications don't exist with the major brand name manufacturers. Our doctors are licensed, medical professionals. We only work with legitimate pharmacies.
In the modern era with Google search and social media, these black market online internet pharmacies are rapidly exposed.
We use real doctors and we promote our doctors. You get to know them and they get to know you. They are professionals and they want you to be healthy so that you tell others about our services.
Unfortunately, the United States health care system is broken. It's too expensive for insurance to cover HGH treatments, so they've made it extremely difficult for patients to qualify. Metabolic health related to hormone decline with aging is not yet supported by the U.S. health care system.
Insurance companies developed more on serving acute injuries, such as serving the needs of patients suffering from acute injury either by accident or a chronic condition. Insurance companies are less enthusiastic about metabolic wellness related to hormone decline, insulin resistance, and obesity. This leads to accelerated age-related chronic diseases like heart attacks, cancers, diabetes, and strokes. To a large degree, it is the primary reason health care expenditures amount to over 17% of the US GDP.
We operate very openly on the internet and through promotional material like print media. We've advertised in Airline Flight Magazines, major Newspapers and on Television. We've been caring and treating medical tourists since 2013 from all over the United States and Canada.
We only prescribe the same FDA approved pharmaceutical HGH brands that you find in the United States. The only difference is the USA must pay 2 or 3 times the price. Why? Because of big pharma's global pricing models and the problematic insurance model which exists in the United States. Both Republicans and Democrats have demonized big pharma for its inflated pricing, but nothing ever seems to get resolved.
Recently, some states have begun to take action. Utah recently passed "Right to Shop" legislation which allows its public employees to buy legally lower-cost prescription medications in Tijuana Mexico. Click the link. It is widely reported in some of the press. Other states are looking at similar legislation: . Mexico has very good control of their legal prescription drug programs.
We work closely with only the leading pharmaceutical companies. The process has a complete and safe chain of custody when it comes to name-brand prescription pharmaceuticals.
Is it illegal to use HGH?
No, it is not illegal to use human growth hormone with your doctor's prescription.
HGH is an approved medication for certain medical conditions such as an HGH deficiency. It must be prescribed by your doctor.
Border patrol, as well as the FDA, require international travelers to carry their doctor's prescription and keep the medication in its original packaging.
How long does it take for HGH to start working?
HGH begins working almost immediately. Most long-term improvements are seen within 3-6 months.
Men given HGH from ages 61-81 were given HGH over a 6 month period. At the end of the six months, they had approximately 15% body fat loss, an 8.8% increase in lean muscle mass, and an increase in bone mineral density.
What's a typical adult dose of HGH therapy?
Most adults on our program range between 1-2 IU between 3-5 days per week.
Common protocols call for one daily injection each evening 5-days per week. However, some research shows similar benefits may be achieved from a less frequent dosing schedule of only 3 days per week.
Most adults on HGH replacement therapy will settle in between 1 and 2 IUs for each injection.
HGH is further enhanced by following an intermittent fasting protocol.
And for those who may be overweight and have some degree of insulin resistance, metformin may be prescribed. Berberine is also a good over-the-counter substitute.
Most individuals on a 3-day injection dose will see a slower degree of fat loss. But when combined with intermittent fasting, metformin, and/or berberine, results on fat loss will accelerate in most individuals.
What does HGH Cost in Costa Rica?
A one month supply of prescription HGH in Costa Rica will cost approximately $550 USD per month for Norditropin Growth Hormone.
What is the price of HGH in the United States?
HGH in the United States generally is three times the amount in Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama.
Typical price for one month's supply of HGH at a U.S. pharmacy is approximately $1,250 USD.
Only name-brand (non-generic) versions of growth hormone are legal. Name-brand prescription medications are generally always 3 times more than in other countries because of the retail price set by large pharmaceutical companies and middle men known as Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs). See our video at the top of this page.
Is it legal to travel with growth hormone?
Yes. As long as you have a prescription. If you are traveling internationally you will want a letter from the doctor. We have all of the legal paperwork from the major manufacturers so if TSA or US Border Patrol is concerned, you can show them the information.
Keep in mind, according to the Center for Disease Control, most adults over 40 years of age are on 2 or more prescription medications. International travel would cease to function if you were not afforded the basic human right of crossing borders with your prescribed medications.
Always carry your prescription and your letter from the doctor to avoid confusing border professionals and TSA.
Is HGH a real anti-aging drug?
No. HGH is not an anti-aging medication. What HGH does is it supports the growth pathways in support of normal energy metabolism.
Growth hormone works closely with the regenerative growth cycle of your body. However, it is now much more understood that this energy state is not ideal 100% of the time.
In order for patients to see the best benefits related to anti-aging at the cellular level, they need to understand what the research on longevity and aging shows.
The body operates best with it goes through natural anabolism and catabolic states (i.e., feast and famine). This reproduces a growth, cleanse phase at the cellular level.
HGH used in combination with metformin, and DHEA, did show an age reversal in epigenetic markers. The research was published in 2019. It is linked to on this web page.
However, we think this study can be improved upon by mimicking some of the new research by Dr. Sinclair of Harvard and Dr. Valter Longo of USC. They both promote the benefits of triggering mechanisms that influence AMPK and mTOR. To key elements of the longevity pathways. They do this with time restricted feeding and in some instances metformin.
Will HGH give me Cancer?
Currently nearly 590,000 Americans die each year from some form of cancer. What doesn't give you cancer?
Probably one of the most associated element we would guess is related to cancer is poor energy metabolism.
One of the major reasons HGH is criticized for potentially promoting cancer in adults is that it increases IGF-1. Elevated IGF-1 is often associated with those with cancer. It's an insulin like growth factor, so for a tumor, it is simply assumed its going to feed growth.
To some extent, we agree. In an overfed, processed-food rich lifestyle, with poor glucose regulation, we think it is a reasonable fear people should have. But with that said, if you follow the recent works of researchers into aging and longevity like Dr. David Sinclair and Dr. Valter Longo, you learn that we need to be attentive to the AMPK/mTOR pathway.
If you go to our Metfomin Blog page, you can learn a little about this pathway as well as how metformin is being studied as an anti-aging drug because of its ability to regulate this pathway for those eating and living the standard American lifestyle.
Our goal is to help you understand as best you can what modern science is saying about this and its role in cancer. We are no longer living in the 1990s and this information is much better understood than ever before.
With that said, we recognize there is much more research required to draw any conclusions. What we can say is that cancer is a big problem in the world, especially the United States. Those who are in better shape, have a better body composition, and have excellent blood markers are less likely to get cancer. Our role as a medical treatment center is to help you achieve this goal. We want to see your risk factors for all these age-related metabolic diseases decline.
