Ingredients that have gone through the proper homeopathic process will always be measured in potencies because what is being measured are the electromagnetic energies of the ingredient, not the pre broken down pharmaceutical form of the ingredient, as is the case with allopathic products.
In allopathic medicine the body has to try to break down the ingredient itself into its usable form, and then try to dispose of the remainder. Homeopathic medicines have already been broken down.
Succussion and Dilution
In homeopathic measurements you will see a number in front of the letters X or C. This is the potency (strength) of the ingredient.
For instance, on the label of our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product you will see this:
Human Growth Hormone 30X, 24X
Deer Antler Velvet 8X
Pituitary Extract 5C, 7C, 9C
Liver Extract 6X
This means that the product contains the ingredient human growth hormone at 30X and 24X potency, it contains the ingredient IGF-1 at 8X potency, etc.
The number in front of the letter is the number of times the ingredient has been succussed and diluted. The letter "X" indicates a 1 to 10 dilution and the letter "C" indicates a 1 to 100 dilution.
As per our example the human growth hormone ingredient was succussed and diluted 30 times using a 1 to 10 dilution.
By succussing the mixture we are able to excite the electrons in the active ingredient. This causes the molecules of the active ingredient and base solution to mingle and exchange information, at which time the energies of the active ingredient are transferred into the lattice (honeycomb) of the base solution.
An ingredient is succussed by agitating it through the use of shaking the bottle and tapping the end of the bottle on the heel of the hand, as is shown in the image.
This entire time consuming process is what makes a homeopathic product effective.
As a general rule, the potency of an ingredient increases with each succussion and dilution.
The key to effective homeopathic medicine is finding the potency that the body responds to best.
Some Products Are Not Real Homeopathics
When looking for any health product or supplement please read the product information and labels carefully and understand what they mean.
FDA registered homeopathic products will always give the potency (X and C) of the ingredient on the label, which is what makes the product effective.
Instead of stating the proper potency of the ingredient some companies will claim that their product contains a certain number of ng (nanograms) of the ingredient. A nanogram is 1 billionth of a gram. Such a product is not a real homeopathic. If the HGH hasn't gone through the homeopathic process to build up and harness its energies such a small amount still in allopathic form will be useless.
As was previously stated homeopathic products are not measured in nanograms, milligrams, grams or other similar measurements and you should not find this on the label of a true homeopathic product.
Please note that even if a product is not homeopathic it still cannot contain any more growth hormone than that of a homeopathic product. The makers of such products are just trying to fool the customers.
