IGF I (1-3) 1mg
Firstly, IGF 1 (1-3) is a naturally occurring, endogenous protein, and truncated analogue of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) are key growth-promoting peptides that act as both endocrine hormones and growth factors. Above all, the IGF protein family consists of signaling proteins, cell membrane receptor proteins and IGF binding proteins.
How IGF 1 (1-3) works:
(1-3) IGF-1 lacks the first three amino acids at the N-terminus of IGF-1 (for a total of 67 amino acids, relative to the 70 of IGF-1). As a result of this difference, it has considerably reduced binding to the insulin-like growth factor-binding proteins and enhanced potency relative to IGF-1.
Another peptide hormone that is similar to IGF 1 is IGF 2. Likewise, both of these growth factors have a similar structure to insulin. They’re both produced primarily in the liver, as well as in other tissues, in response to the release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. Both are considered extensions of human growth hormone because they have many of the same effects. For example, both bind to and activate different receptors, causing the growth of different cells and tissues.
- Protein synthesis in the body
- Fat storage transfers for energy production, which results in a noticeable fat loss.
- Positive effects on metabolism, increasing lean body mass and decreasing fat
- Increase in regenerative properties of the body’s nerve tissues
- Upregulates antioxidant benefit and ligament strength
- Boosts hyperplasia in muscle cells, which leads to fuller muscle tissues.
- Improved cognitive function
