IGF-1: What it is, What it does; Relationship to HGH
After growth hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland it is then taken into the liver where it is used to produce IGF-1. It is this substance—Insulin-like Growth Factor-1—which is responsible for many of the effects usually attributed to HGH. It increases lean body mass, reduces fat, builds bone, muscle and nerves.
Those few body builders that have obtained real IGF-1 report muscle gains of 20 lbs. and more. The magazine Muscle Media 2000 headlines IGF-1 as “Possibly the Most Potent Body-Building Drug Ever!” The article claims that body builders report a 5% drop in body fat in a month! Increases in lean body mass/strength are described as “incredible.”
Not only is IGF-1 responsible for stimulation of muscle mass formation, but it works in conjunction with HGH to bring the cells in our body the raw materials they need for renovation and repair.
IGF-1 has also been shown to repair nerve damage, which not only occurs from accidents, but also from poor nutrition, stress, disease and pollution. Since our nervous system powers all the other systems in the body it is important that we receive the proper nutrients for this, which includes IGF-1.
According to researcher Eric Dupont, Ph.D., “Growth hormone is the general and growth factors are the foot soldiers.”
Since HGH and IGF-1 work so closely together in the body they could be an unmatched team when used together as a homeopathic system. They work together in a synergistic manner enhancing each others abilities, and although they both do many of the same things, there are also functions each of them performs that the other does not.
The price for IGF-1 is currently very high, but the homeopathic version is able to alleviate a good portion of this cost, and brings with it the added benefit of safety.
