To get more info, you can read my article “HGH PRICE: HOW MUCH DOES HGH COST REALLY?»
- Manufacturing expenses. In Western countries all manufacturing expenses, including labor, facilities, building, licence etc are higher. It leads to the high price of the products. But it isnt the main reason
- People are rich and ready to pay this price for growth hormone. HGH is used mostly to treat GH deficient children and for anti-aging therapy. This purposes require fewer dosages comparing to bodybuilding and people are ready to pay money for HGH.
- Companies use their reputation as international pharmaceutical companies with long history to increase the price of HGH brands
- The demand on white market is low, so companies need to compensate low selling volume with high price

Genuine and fake Jintropin
Because Jintropin is very popular there are many fake Jintropin on the market. The most common fake is Jintropin with Chinese hieroglyphs on the kit. Sellers represent it as Jin for domestic usage in China, which was taken away from the country. In the most cases, it is lie and you get fake. The laws that regulate HGH usage are very strict in China and it is impossible to get HGH if you don’t have prescription as GH deficient. Also, it is very hard to take growth hormone out of China – it is violation of laws and is punished.
So, if you buy Jintropin with Chinese hieroglyphs, 95 % you get fake kit with underground somatropin of awful quality or peptide inside the vial.
The only genuine Jintropin available is Jintropin Europharm. This type of Jintropin is produced especially for export and sale to other countries. Now, it is allowed for sale in 7 countries.
The legit kit has Russian letters on it. Also, each kit of Jintropin has a sticker with unique fibers and 17 characters code. You can check it on GenSci website on Anti-Counterfeit page.
