In this blog post, you’re going to find out why ordering powder form hCG is ideal, what kind of process hCG undergoes to maximize its storage life and maintain its efficacy, and why it is NOT advisable to purchase liquid or premixed hCG.
So you’re ready to order your hCG injections?
When we are speaking of ordering real hCG online – that is, the real, prescription, actual hCG hormone, wherever you get it from, it needs to arrive to you in powder form, not liquid. Why is this?
Listen to Michael the Pharmacist’s explanation of this in the video above. Finally, the mommy blogger is proved sane and true! 😉 I’ve been saying this for a few years now.
Before you get your powder form hCG, it is a liquid solution that undergoes the process of lyophilization or, in layman’s term, freeze drying. Lyophilization improves the storage life of hCG, ensuring that you get your product with its maximum potency.
You can check out my other blog post Turning hCG from A Liquid into a Powder to Maintain Potency where I go into geek mode and discuss the process of lyophilization.
hCG as Liquid = Potency Degradation
Essentially, the moment hCG is put into a solution, it starts to experience potency degradation. How much? We can’t really be sure. But the point is to minimize this by making sure that the hormone is processed so that it is in it’s most stable form, as powder, until you are ready to mix it for your hCG round.
With the powder form hCG, you can rest assured knowing that its potency is preserved as opposed to the pre-mixed or reconstituted form which has a very limited shelf life. The longer storage life of powder hCG is very convenient in the event that you receive it and decide to put off injecting it. Just make sure to use it WITHIN THE EXPIRY DATE listed on the vial. And just to clarify, the expiry date specified on the vial does not necessarily mean the date after which your hCG is no longer potent. It’s just that pharmacies are legally required to indicate the date that signifies THE LENGTH OF TIME THAT THE hCG HAS BEEN TESTED FOR and they cannot put a date beyond that period.
By having the hCG arrive at your home as a powder, which you then mix yourself (don’t worry it’s EASY PEASY with my hCG mixing tutorials), you can have a good 4 weeks or so to use your batch of hCG with sufficient potency to do it’s work in your body.
I have so much to relate to you all from my pharmacy tour so check out my other hCG Pharmacy 101 posts and find out more about the very strict processes that go into making real, potent, and safe hCG injections!
