Does the HGH Patch Work?

Written by Author - Authors Medical experts of the National HRT Clinic - October 26, 2015

In looking for shortcut ways to increase growth hormone, many people fall victim to products marketed as HGH that actually contain absolutely no human growth hormone at all. One such product is the HGH Patch. Unlike other types of patches that provide actual medication – testosterone, nicotine, pain meds to name a few – HGH patches have zero human growth hormones in them. In essence, they contain a variety of amino acids.

HGH Patch

Why doesn’t the concept of a human growth hormone patch work?

The answer lies in the actual growth hormone molecule itself. The molecular structure of GH makes it too large to pass through the surface of the skin. This makes it impossible to enter the bloodstream where it will be transported to the various receptor sites in the body.

Since HGH cannot enter the bloodstream via an HGH transdermal patch, anything that is applied to the skin’s surface will not accomplish any positive results.

Is the HGH Transdermal Patch Real HGH?

The HGH transdermal patch also does not contain any real human growth hormones because the molecular structure of HGH is extremely fragile. It typically degrades at room temperature – with the exception of a few injectables that have been specially formulated for short term – up to three months – stability.

The HGH molecule is also extremely sensitive to movement, and shaking will cause it to break down. This will inhibit its ability to adhere to the cellular receptors in the body.

Close HGH patch review shows that this product does not contain real HGH and is promoted as being able to stimulate the pituitary gland into secreting additional growth hormone. This is a message that must come through the bloodstream – something that patches of this nature simply cannot provide.

HGH Patch vs. HGH Injection

The best – and only legitimate – way to get real human growth hormone therapy is with HGH injections. HGH cannot pass through the surface of the skin, oral or nasal membranes, or be ingested. The body’s own digestive processes will nullify and destroy anything consumed orally.

HGH patches are a waste of money and time. A person who requires treatment for adult growth hormone deficiency is typically dealing with a number of adverse symptoms that are interfering with daily activities and life in general. Putting off proper treatment in order to try something that will not work, such as an HGH patch, will only lead to increased symptoms and a longer treatment recovery period of time.

At National HRT, we never recommend a product such as a growth hormone patch to individuals who have had blood tests that show they are GH deficient. The goal of treatment is to provide positive results. That is why our doctors prescribe only injectable HGH. This medication will come direct from licensed US pharmacies. Safety is a primary concern here at our national hormone replacement therapy clinic.

Please contact us with any questions about HGH treatment options or to schedule your blood test. We are happy to offer complimentary, confidential consultations by phone to men and women throughout the US.
