Note: Zomacton is one of the new HGH medications recently approved by the FDA for adult human growth hormone deficiency <Link>. Zomacton is rapidly becoming a popular choice in the USA since its price is lower than most of the other alternatives. The disadvantage of Zomacton is it is not as convenient to use as some of the other medications. Norditropin HGH is our choice for the easiest and most convenient HGH therapy program.
Note: Norditropin is by far the best option, but its HGH-price-point makes it unreasonable for most patients in the USA. Most patients who choose Norditropin will find a better value by working with one of our international treatment centers.
Norditropin HGH Replacement Options
As mentioned above, Norditropin HGH is manufactured by Novo Nordisk. Novo Nordisk is a multi-national pharmaceutical company with its headquarters in Denmark . It is by far the most widely used global brand of HGH therapy in the world with an estimated market share of over 35%. Its closest rival is made by Pfizer with an estimated 21% market share. Norditropin used to be a commonly prescribed in the United States, but that has been changing over the past 5-7 years due to its high cost in the states compared with other brands, like Zomacton HGH.
Norditropin is more reasonably priced and affordable at our international treatment centers in Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama. In fact, Norditropin HGH in the premixed pen form-factor is at least 50% less through our treatment programs. At our treatment centers, our doctors are board certified in anti-aging medicine. Some holding US citizenship in Costa Rica and Mexico.
Medical Tourism is a big part of our business at our Anti-Aging and Wellness treatment centers. The primary reason for this is patients trust us when it comes to their bio-identical hormone replacement and HGH replacement therapy. Whether it is domestically prescribed here in the United States, or abroad at one of our medical tourism treatment centers, patients receive the same level of care and attention they expect in the US. Nearly 85% of our patients originate from North America, primarily the US and Canada.
Norditropin HGH is considered the “gold standard” for adult human growth hormone replacement. It comes in a convenient pen form factor, is premixed, and can even go without refrigeration for 7-14 days when traveling.
Anti-Aging and Wellness Treatment Centers are the No.1 choice for bio-identical hormone programs that include HGH replacement as part of the therapy. For 50% less than any inflated big-pharma rates in the United States, patients can save thousands of dollars in a relatively short amount of time.
Why is HGH so expensive in the States? Watch the video below to learn about the attention this issue is finally getting in Washington D.C. The USA is getting fleeced with prescription drug prices, especially HGH.
The United States pays an artificially high price for Human Growth Hormone Therapy. Trump: “The same drug, with the same ingredients, manufactured in the same production plants, yet Americans pay more than everyone else.”
Norditropin HGH Pens & Dosing Instructions
There are two styles of Norditropin HGH Injection Pens. There is a Norditropin HGH Injection Pen called the FlexPro, and a Norditropin HGH Injection Pen called the Nordilet. The primary difference between the two pens is mechanical in nature and where they are distributed from. The medication is exactly the same inside the pen. The only difference is how the dosage is dialed in before injecting.
The Norditet HGH Pen – 10MG/30IU Version (Available in Costa Rica & Panama)
The Nordilet HGH Pen is shown in the image below. This pen is available in Costa Rica, Panama and other parts of Central America.
A common HGH replacement dosage for adult human growth hormone deficiency is 1.5 IU per day 4 or 5 days per week. Some dosages may run a bit less or a bit higher depending on the patient. The ultimate dosage any patient receives is based on the individual’s medical examination and how their body metabolizes the medication. Dosages are prescribed conservatively initially, and then optimized to precise levels by follow-up blood tests and how the patient responds to treatment.
Below is a short video showing how to inject the Norditropin Nordilet Pen. The same medication, the same manufacturer, but at 50% less with us at our international treatment centers.
For calculating dosages, the pen cap is turned and makes a click sound.
To the left is a table of the Pen-Cap-Click-Dose versus the resolution related to milligrams and IU dosages.
Note – this for the Norditropin Nordilet Blue 10mg/1.5ml pen. Note, mg is the HGH milligram amount, dose is the click amount, and IU is the standard international unit amount.
Norditropin HGH comes in two other sizes and colors. Those pens are green (15mg) and yellow (5mg). This table is only for the Norditropin Nordilet Blue Pen (10 mg).
For other Norditropin pen colors, contact one of our service representatives for accurate dosing and calculations.
Currently we only prescribe the Blue Norditropin 10 mg size pens.
The Norditropin FlexPro HGH Pen (USA & Mexico)
The Norditropin FlexPro HGH Pen differs from the Nordilet version. The HGH medicine inside is exactly the same medication as the other Norditropin Nordilet Pen. The only difference is the mechanical design and how the dose is adjusted.
To calculate IU dosage with this pen, you will need to do a simple calculation to convert milligrams to IUs. The dial on the pen is in milligrams, so to convert milligrams to IU’s, you simply multiply the milligram value on the dial by 3.
Common dosages are listed below.
International Units (IU)
Americans deserve fairness with prescription drug prices. Even politicians are finally realizing that it is unfair that US Citizens pay more for common medications than other countries. Now there is a choice. Contact one of our trusted treatment centers and learn how to get started for less.

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.
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.
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.
HGH is 3-times (or more!) in the United States that 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.
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:
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.
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.
A one month supply of prescription HGH in Costa Rica will cost approximately $550 USD per month for Norditropin Growth Hormone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
