    Has it been mixed yet?

    If it has been mixed its useless i think the tops for HGH in bac water is between 36-48hrs but i could be wrong but i definitely isn't a few weeks.

    If its still in powdered form then IMO i should be ok and i would use it but that's me and just my opinion.

    There's people who say you should keep it in the fridge at all times and I'm one of the people that do, but i know plenty that only fridge it when its mixed and in liquid form ans have never had problems

    Hope this helps you make up your mind but if you have your doubts then id leave well alone its not something that should be injected just because its lying around

    Cheers

    Never tried it. But was doing a little research the other night and on one of the manufacturers websites the advice for storage was:-

    Storage: before dilution, keep it at 2-8℃ (room temperature) and avoid cold storage. Notice the period of validity printed on the label. After diluted with water: it must be used within 72 hours. It must be kept at 2-8℃ (room temperature) and avoid refrigeration

    This was a surprise as it is not what I have read everywhere else.

    I feel sorry for the person who lives in a house with a room temp of 2 degrees my fridge is showing that temp rite now hence why mines in there as we spk

    Room temperature is standardly defined as around 21degC.  2-8degC is defined as in the fridge.   That info is misleading.

    In all honesty, as a powder lyophillised and unmixed, the HGH is fine at room temp for a couple of years.  It is very stable in that form.  However as soon as you mix it with the water, it should be kept in the fridge, not frozen, and used within ideally 72 hrs.

    would that apply to peptides too mcl? - Just got a couple bottles ghrp and I don't need to mix one yet so okay to leave at room temp for the unmixed?

    The general consensus for storage and shelf life of rHGH in a white lyophilized 'powder' seems to be:

    Keep at 2 ~ 8 degrees centigrade ( 35.6~46.4 degrees Fahrenheit )away from light. The valid period is 24 months from the date of freeze-drying. The reconstituted solution can be stored at 2 ~ 8 Centidegree for 48 hours, do not freeze.

    I would deduce from this that in lyophilized form and stored in room temperature the shelf life would become significantly reduced.  However, I dont have my hands on a study to support this.

    The thing with the way they make the HGH and other peptides now is that you see a wafer - a volumising substance if you like is added/dried down with the peptide in the lyophilisation process.  This prevents much movement of the peptide and stability.  8IU of HGH for example is only a couple of mg's of the peptide, that is barely a speck of powder your eye can see.  This "wafer" adds extra stability.  

    Of course if you have the capacity to and are able to keep it in the fridge it will be better, but it does last a good while at room temp if unmixed.

    it will start degrading as soon as you mix it. In Nacl solution  you need to use immediately. In BAC water I'd use within 3 days max, of course stored cold.
