How HGH Gels Compare to the Sprays

By Lisa Wells, RN

HGH Gels

Over the past 24 years I have seen topical/transdermal HGH products that are placed on the skin come and go. They have not lasted long on the market because absorption of a formula that contains homeopathic HGH via the sublingual route (under the tongue) is always superior to the topical or transdermal route. Now new gels such as Somaderm are being sold via multi-level marketers.

Browse the web for all types of real homeopathic products and see all the sprays, pellets and liquids that use the sublingual route.

FYI - The only form of human growth hormone that can enter the body without injection is the homeopathic form.

Perhaps the makers of gels and creams believe that many people will not understand the difference in homeopathic and allopathic products and they won't take the time to educate themselves.

The HGH Must Be Homeopathic

All non-injection products can only contain HGH in homeopathic form and there are two reasons for this:

#1: Human growth hormone in its pharmaceutical state cannot be absorbed through any type of skin because the molecule is too large. That is why it must be injected.

#2: Only HGH in homeopathic form is allowed to be sold without a prescription.

Perhaps the sellers believe that some potential customers will believe that they can rub the hormone HGH onto their skin the same way that the estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone can be applied to the skin and it will be absorbed. However that is not the case. The aforementioned bioidentical hormones are not homeopathic. They are still in their pharmaceutical state yet their molecules are small enough to be absorbed topically. Not so for human growth hormone. Due to the large size of its protein molecules HGH in its original form must be injected. Only HGH in homeopathic form can be absorbed without injection.

Homeopathic HGH - The Best Method of Absorption

In order for homeopathic HGH to be effective the energies/frequencies of the large molecules must be transferred into the lattice of the water base solution.

In one of my articles about homeopathic HGH and how it works I provide this information:

When making homeopathic HGH the pharmacist or physician starts with recombinant human growth hormone (Somatropin) and a special base solution. The HGH is then put through the extensive homeopathic manufacturing process of succussion and dilution.
During this process the essence (electromagnetic energies) of the HGH molecules are transferred into the water lattice of the base solution. This homeopathic solution is then sprayed into the blood rich, thin skinned area under the tongue and is absorbed into the bloodstream successfully.

Dr. Howard Davis, who wrote the book Feeling Younger With Homeopathic HGH stated:

Some believe that when human growth hormone is combined with a sublingual homeopathic preparation the results are on the leading edge of anti-aging therapy.

Why is Sublingual HGH Better Than Transdermal?

The sublingual route is better than any transdermal route due to several reasons.

First, the mucous membrane under the tongue is very thin and blood rich so the ingredients enter the bloodstream more quickly and completely. The main purpose of the skin on the body is to keep things out and to protect what is underneath it. Of course many substances can be absorbed via the skin but it is not the best route of administration when you want the substance to be quickly and completely absorbed.

I used to work in the hospital in the emergency department. Whenever we had a patient come in with chest pain usually the first thing we did was to place a small nitroglycerin tablet under their tongue. Within about two minutes the patient would get relief. Now later on the doctor may order a nitro patch to deliver a low and steady dose of nitroglycerin to the patient but when the doctor needed immediate and complete absorption the choice was sublingual.

Second, I assume they are making their homeopathic HGH formula using a water base since the electromagnetic energies of the growth hormone molecules must be transferred into the lattice of the water molecules. If not then they are not making the homeopathic formula correctly. Even if they do begin with a water base that water is either being removed, and along with the water goes the HGH energies, or it is being mixed in with the gels and other ingredients, which will not hold the HGH energies.

Third, if you place a homeopathic formulation into a cream or gel then the homeopathic energies are being combined with various non-homeopathic ingredients. Such ingredients may interfere with the potency. Such ingredients may also be at a different frequency than the homeopathic ingredients and so may impede or disrupt the energies of the HGH.

But What About the Saliva Claim?

I've heard that people selling Somaderm have claimed that saliva damages the HGH. This is nonsense. If this were the case then there would not have been numerous homeopathic sprays on the market for years, our independent randomized double-blind placebo-controlled IGF-1 clinical studies proving effectiveness would not exist, and we wouldn't still be here after 24 years and still be offering sublingual spray products, especially since we offer money back guarantees on all our products.

Also, if saliva were to destroy the homeopathic HGH what do you think the oils in the skin would do to it?

Our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 Product is Better and Costs Less!

In my opinion some gels are overpriced. For instance, Somaderm contains only one potency of human growth hormone at 30X and the other ingredients are non-homeopathic ingredients that don't cost much.

Our HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 product contains two potencies of human growth hormone at 30X and 12X so we have to purchase more injectable recombinant HGH to make our product. It also contains recombinant IGF-1, which is the main growth factor that comes from HGH and it is actually IGF-1 that provides most of the benefits associated with human growth hormone.

IGF-1 - the Growth Factor of Youth!

Our product also contains recombinant IGF-2, alpha GPC, pituitary extract, liver extract, and velvet deer antler, which is the best known natural source of growth factors, all in homeopathic form. We do not mix homeopathic and non-homeopathic ingredients. These ingredients cost more than the herbs, vitamins, and minerals found in the gels and yet our product costs less! I invite you to compare the ingredients in any gel with our ingredients.

Did you know? Some gels contain a wide range of ingredients that have nothing to do with increasing HGH.

Some gels and other products contain ginkgo and/or ginseng. We know that increasing HGH in the body can help to improve memory and increase energy. We also know that ginkgo can help to improve memory and ginseng can increase energy. These valuable herbs provide other benefits as well. However, if the gel were to really increase growth hormone in the body then such ingredients wouldn't be needed.

This is nothing new in the HGH supplement industry. For years the makers of other products have added ingredients that can mimic some of the benefits of HGH. The problem is that the customer may be feeling the effects of these other ingredients and so may believe that their growth hormone level is increasing when it is not. The benefits of such herbs are great, however, if the person's growth hormone is not really increasing then they will be missing out on other internal and external benefits that effective HGH therapy can provide.

The HGH Patches

I want to also mention the skin patches that I have seen come and go over the years. The sellers claimed their patches were better than the sublingual sprays, and a big selling point they used was that patches were much more convenient to take than sprays. They may have been more convenient but they were not better and that is why you don't find many patches around any longer.

My Closing Thoughts

If the makers of the gel products believe their products are so good and are better than sprays where are the independent double-blind placebo-controlled IGF-1 clinical studies proving their product's effectiveness?

If they are so sure that it is better then why don't they offer a 100% money back guarantee like we offer? We allow our customers to try our product for a full three months and if their blood IGF-1 level doesn't improve we will refund their money for all three bottles. We even offer a money back guarantee for those customers who do not want to check their pre-therapy IGF-1 blood level. All our customers are allowed to take one bottle and return the empty bottle within 30 days if they are not satisfied, with no blood tests required. Please click for detailed information about our money back guarantees.

By the way, from what I understand the sellers of a certain gel product had been selling the sublingual sprays for years. I understand they are offering a multi-level marketing plan with the gels so MLMers who would like to make money selling a product will probably be excited, but if you are looking for the best non-injection HGH therapy available it will be a sublingual spray.
