has anyone used PG-H
- 09-08-2005, 07:20 PM
Additional question for Mr. universe and other users,,,,,,,
Since pGH seems to improve sleep benefits I was wondering if it has to be taken before bed or can it be taken during the day without causing sleepiness/lethargy? Also has anyone experienced Carpel Tunnel type symptoms with pGH? I have them bad from my current IGF and hGH regimine and I am about to stop. I would like to stop and switch to pGH and stilll have the hope that the Carpel Tunnel effects will go away. As a side note I don't think it is true Carpel Tunnel but rather an impingement of the Median nerve by the brachialis or the pronator teres. Any thoughts or techniques to release such impingement?

Mr.50 have you tried everything possible to not have to stop your supplementation? For example, devil's claw root, cissus and turmeric/curcumin all have anti-inflammatory properties or soft-tissus healing / pain reduction abilities. I'm betting that you'd do just fine with those. Here's a couple review summaries for ya. Enjoy.

Safety and anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin: a component of tumeric (Curcuma longa).
Department of Stomatology, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143-0658, USA. [email protected]
INTRODUCTION: Tumeric is a spice that comes from the root Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family, Zingaberaceae. In Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine), tumeric has been used for its medicinal properties for various indications and through different routes of administration, including topically, orally, and by inhalation. Curcuminoids are components of tumeric, which include mainly curcumin (diferuloyl methane), demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcmin. OBJECTIVES: The goal of this systematic review of the literature was to summarize the literature on the safety and anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin. METHODS: A search of the computerized database MEDLINE (1966 to January 2002), a manual search of bibliographies of papers identified through MEDLINE, and an Internet search using multiple search engines for references on this topic was conducted. The PDR for Herbal Medicines, and four textbooks on herbal medicine and their bibliographies were also searched. RESULTS: A large number of studies on curcumin were identified. These included studies on the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal properties of curcuminoids. Studies on the toxicity and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin have included in vitro, animal, and human studies. A phase 1 human trial with 25 subjects using up to 8000 mg of curcumin per day for 3 months found no toxicity from curcumin. Five other human trials using 1125-2500 mg of curcumin per day have also found it to be safe. These human studies have found some evidence of anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin. The laboratory studies have identified a number of different molecules involved in inflammation that are inhibited by curcumin including phospholipase, lipooxygenase, cyclooxygenase 2, leukotrienes, thromboxane, prostaglandins, nitric oxide, collagenase, elastase, hyaluronidase, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), interferon-inducible protein, tumor necrosis factor (TNF), and interleukin-12 (IL-12). CONCLUSIONS: Curcumin has been demonstrated to be safe in six human trials and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity. It may exert its anti-inflammatory activity by inhibition of a number of different molecules that play a role in inflammation.

Analgesic, antiinflammatory and antidiabetic properties of Harpagophytum procumbens DC (Pedaliaceae) secondary root aqueous extract.
Mahomed IM, Ojewole JA.
Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Private Bag X54001, Durban 4000, South Africa.
South Africa is blessed with a rich floral biodiversity of medicinally useful plants. One such plant is Harpagophytum procumbens DC (Family: Pedaliaceae). H. procumbens is widely used in South African traditional medicine for the treatment, management and/or control of a variety of human ailments. In the present study, the analgesic effect of H. procumbens secondary root aqueous extract was evaluated in mice, using the 'hot-plate' and 'acetic acid' test methods; while the antiinflammatory and antidiabetic effects of the plant's secondary root extract were investigated in rats. Fresh egg albumin-induced pedal oedema and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes mellitus were used as experimental test models of inflammation and diabetes Diclofenac (DIC, 100 mg/kg i.p.) was used as a reference analgesic and antiinflammatory agent for comparison. Chlorpropamide (250 mg/kg p.o.) was used as a reference hypoglycaemic agent for comparison. H. procumbens root aqueous extract (HPE, 50-800 mg/kg i.p.) produced significant (p < 0.05-0.001) analgesic effects against thermally and chemically induced nociceptive pain stimuli in mice. H. procumbens root extract (HPE, 50-800 mg/kg i.p.) also produced dose-related, significant reductions (p < 0.05-0.001) of the fresh egg albumin-induced acute inflammation of the rat hind paw oedema. Furthermore, the plant extract (HPE, 50-800 mg/kg i.p.) produced dose-dependent, significant reductions (p < 0.05-0.001) in the blood glucose concentrations of both fasted normal and fasted diabetic rats. The results of this experimental animal study indicate that H. procumbens root aqueous extract possesses analgesic, antiinflammatory and hypoglycaemic properties, and lend pharmacological support to the suggested folklore uses of Harpagophytum procumbens root in the management and/or control of painful, arthritic and other inflammatory conditions, as well as for adult-onset, type-2 diabetes mellitus in some communities of South Africa. 2004 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

High GH levels will do that to you, wether from p-GH or from hGH doesn't matter. If you're prone to it, then a higher GH level will do that. But I tell you from experience, these herbal anti-inflammatories help tremendously.

50 mcgs per day IGF (5 on 2 off). 3ius per day GH (4th month, 5 on 2 off)
I have to go to the local health food store and see if they have some of the anti inflammatories toill I can order some from a board sponser.

Hey mr.universe my question is, on your site it says "Please note: All kits come with an extra month supply standard or one extra bottle." Does that mean that if I want to run it for 2 months, I only need to purchase one month and will get the second free? Thanks, I think this has been covered before but couldn't find it when searching or remember what you answered.
09-09-2005, 05:45 PM
I am interested too. Does "extra month supply" also go for the transdermal?Originally Posted by BOHICA

to MR 50: have you noticed the pain just from the GH or from the combintaion? how long did it took to manifest? also, do you shoot the IGF IM or SC?
also SS01, curcumin is not that orally available, look up pubemd, and its antinflammatory action is limited to the intestisines and (maybe) liver
09-09-2005, 09:02 PM
To judge-mental: Ah. I haven't tried it. Harpagophytum procumbens, aka devil's claw root, works wonders for me.
09-09-2005, 09:39 PM
For this type of carpel tunnel type symptom or just in general. I bought both the Devil's Claw and the Curcumin today and started taking them. Hopefully this will help. I am about to quit because I can't sleep.

I actually noticed it about 2 weeks after I started the Gh and it has gotten progressivly worse. This week I started the IGF at 50mcgs per day 5 on 2 off and I also dropped the GH to 2ius per day 5 on 2 off. I think I just realized yesterday that I had to reduct the GH to 2ius per day rather then 3 as I am running out and I want to finish the IGF and GH at the same time. Since starting the IGF this week the numbness has gotten worse.
My plan is to finish the IGF and the GH and switch to pGH to get things started again.
I have been using the GH sub-Q in the abs and IGF IM in various body parts.

Hm, liver anti-inflammatory... Sounds interesting. I wonder what that does when one has abused orals...
Mr.50, Devil's Claw Root is a systemic anti-inflammatory. I have joint pain from my bad knee that has some extensive ligament damage and this in turn makes my cartilage wear very quickly. I also tend to have a pain in the forearm when doing curls.
Devil's claw root cures the latter and greatly helps the former. I do not know ONE person who does not report feeling much better after taking it. It is extremely underrated for some unknown reason. Maybe the word "devil" scares people off. Seriously though, to notice immediate results, you might want to triple-dose for the first 3 days or so. It is harmless. Have you gotten it in liquid, caps or tabs?
09-10-2005, 12:21 AM
I'd check that one out first. There are studies that have shown liver damage in poor little research mice that have been given doses >14 days.Originally Posted by ss01

I would love to try PG-h but am going into pct soon and money is an issue. May have to stick with what I know works.
Anyone use this for PCT with good results? Besides MR. Universe. (no offense, but you are alittle biased, as you should be with your product )
09-10-2005, 04:04 AM
pgh is awomse...i didnt use it durning pct....for a while after my last cycle my sex drive was very low....once i started running pgh ...everything came back to normal...i am running it during my pct and i suggest you do if you are going to be on a long cycle
09-10-2005, 04:17 AM
Buy in replace of Nolva/ retain? seems these would be much more effective for PCT and again, money is an issue or I would run both.
09-10-2005, 10:05 AM
when i purchased it a few months ago i got two bottles for the price of one so yeah he gives u a free months supplyOriginally Posted by BOHICA

09-10-2005, 12:06 PM
no it CANNOT replace nolva ... pgh would be a nice addition, but will do NOTHING to bring up natty test levelsOriginally Posted by workin2005
09-10-2005, 12:59 PM
Ok thanks....I would love to try it and report back on results but I cant afford both nolva/Retain AND pg-h so I think I will have to drop the pg-h
Wish I was rich!!!!
Thanks for the feed back guys....
09-10-2005, 02:01 PM
Mr. 50 thanks for the info... did you have any previous CPT before that? do you work in front of a computer? any joint pain that started besides that?
09-10-2005, 02:02 PM
09-12-2005, 01:18 AM
Actually Judge I did not have any prior CPT. But I do work in front of the computer a lot and also I have had other joint soreness/aches since starting the hGH. I will look into the high dose Celedrin and Cissus but what is ART???
