What is Somaderm? SOMADERM is a transdermal, somatropin based gel with homeopathic glandulars and botanicals created and brought to market by New U Life. Somatropin is a synthetic growth hormone that mirrors a natural hormone produced in your pituitary gland. This active ingredient is diluted to a 30X dose, which makes SOMADERM available without a prescription. SOMADERM also contains Glandula Suprarenalis Suis 6X to support proper adrenal function and Thyroidinum 8X to support a healthy thyroid. SOMADERM is safe and effective for men and women over the age of 18.
