IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1 or IGF-1), sometimes called Somatomedin C, acts as a metabolite of human growth hormone (GH). IGF-1 is a hormone that has structural similarities to insulin. Insulin-like growth factor-1 is very important not only for children, it also contributes to the anabolic effect in adults. IGF-1 contains 70 amino acids, which form a chain with three intramolecular bonds-bridges. IGF-1 forms a bond with the target receptor IGF-1, which is found on almost all cells of a living organism. Due to this binding, the main anabolic effect of insulin-like growth factor-1 is realized. This compound with the IGF-1R receptor generates intracellular signaling based on cell growth and division. In addition, it acts as a strong inhibitor of cell breakdown (affects the cell life cycle). In fact, IGF-1 is the main binding agent for the effects of growth hormone. The anterior pituitary gland produces GH, which enters the liver from the blood, where it is converted into insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), and then IGF-1 stimulates the appearance of major anabolic effects in the body.
Insulin-like growth factor-1 has an excellent effect on the level of growth of skeletal muscles, cartilage, bones, liver, kidneys, nerves, skin, lungs, as well as hematopoietic cells. It should be noted that the insulin-like growth factor has a beneficial effect on the level of amino acid metabolism, stimulation of protein synthesis, increase in ribonucleic acid synthesis, promotes fat metabolism and glucose transport, improves protein production and prevents its destruction.The insulin-like growth factor is in high demand among people involved in sports. The main reason is hidden in the fact that IGF has beneficial anabolic properties, it is widely used as a non-dangerous doping. Due to the fact that IGF-1 is a substance of natural origin, it is almost impossible to prove the fact of its use. Interest in taking this particular substance is constantly growing among athletes.
Among the benefits of IGF-1, there is also a positive effect on the human cardiovascular system, including the effect of the drug is aimed at restoring the heart muscle. In this case, the effect of the use of IGF-1 is similar to the treatment with nitroglycerin in people suffering from heart disease. The insulin-like factor stops the angina attack, but it can also significantly increase the myocardial oxygen demand.
Another advantage of IGF-1 is its beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system, in particular, the recovery of the heart muscle. But here everything happens in much the same way as in the case of the use of nitroglycerin by "cores" - this drug can stop an attack of angina, but it can provoke a sharp increase in the oxygen demand of the myocardium and lead to collapse.
- IGF1 lr3 is recommended to apply 50-200mcg daily subcutaneously or 100-400 after training locally in the muscle to activate the point effect.
- IGF1 DES(1-3) is recommended to apply 200-400mcg after training locally in the muscle to activate the point effect.
- It is also possible to use two forms of IGF together for a stronger effect.
- The maximum result is shown by the combined use of IGF with growth hormone, peptides and anabolic steroids.
