Insulin-Like Growth Factor Recombinant 3
IGF1 stands for insulin like growth factor. It mimics insulin in the human
body and also at the same time makes the muscles more sensitive to insulin�s
effects. It is a growth factor and is the most potent one in the human body at
that. IGF causes muscle cell hyperplasia, which is an actual splitting and
forming of new muscle cells. This was thought to only be possible during
puberty. IGF is much more potent at this effect than growth hormone is, in fact
almost all of the effects you see from growth hormone come from the increased
amount of IGF that your liver produces when the GH is destroyed. So it would be
very easy to say that IGF is a much more potent and cheaper alternative to GH
use, although GH is more effective for fat loss than IGF due to some other
effects that it causes such as metabolism increase and the ability to
effectively use more insulin, T3, and anabolic steroids.
Another advantage that IGF has over GH is that it has much more of an
affinity to attach to muscle cells instead of bone and organ cells. Growth
hormone has been know to cause a lot of organ enlargement and bone elongation
since it attaches to all types of receptor cells. IGF is much more likely to go
where we want it, our muscle cells. IGF-1 attaches to myogenic stem cells which
are only located in muscle and connective tissues. These myogenic stem cells are
responsible for the production of myoblast cells which in turn are responsible
for the buildup and repair of connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, cartilage,
and joints to a certain extent).
So from this you can see that IGF-1 is great for increasing the strength of
tendons and also for helping to heal existing injuries while at the same time
helping to prevent them. IGF-1 is also responsible for increased protein
synthesis and amino acid synthesis.
IGF does not have to be used along with anabolic steroids, GH, insulin, or
thyroid hormones to be effective. It causes muscle growth on its own. In fact
some people prefer to use it during their breaks from steroid cycles since IGF
has no effect on natural test production. It could effectively be used along
with HCG, clomid, and PGF2a for a hell of an off cycle stack which would allow
your body to return to normal and still allow you to grow!! On its own IGF will
give an increase of around 2 lbs. of new solid lean muscle tissue every two
weeks, and is also is know for its ability to strip off body fat and GREATLY
increase vascularity, body fat decreases of 5-8% over a 50 day cycle are not
uncommon. But, of course you will be much happier with the results if you use
the IGF along with anabolic steroids, testosterone, and insulin.
The use of steroids along with the IGF allow you to quickly mature and
strengthen the new muscle tissue that the IGF has formed, and may also speed the
process of hyperplasia. If you need any help setting up a great stack to
use along with the IGF just let me know and I can help you out. I speak with
lots of top bodybuilders and guru�s so I am very knowledgeable.
The dosage issue for IGF is where the most controversy lies. Dosages used by
competitive athletes most commonly range anywhere between 60mcg/day to
100+mcg/day. The trick is finding the dosage that works best for YOU. For most
the best results appear when you reach a dosage of 80mcg/day, while some do
receive good results from only 40mcg/day. I personally feel the best results
begin to be noticed at a dosage of 100mcg/day. I personally am using 150mcg/day
during my current cycle.
Also I should let you know that the form of IGF is the Long R3 analog. It has
been chemically altered and has a longer half-life than regular IGF, which only
lasts about 10 minutes in the human body once injected. The Long R3 IGF-1 has a
half-life of 6-10 hours, so you will only need to inject once or twice per day.
The best time to inject is after lifting and in the morning, so it would be best
to use half the dosage in the morning and the other half after lifting. This
will take maximal advantage of IGF�s insulin
