IGF-1 – insulin – represent a hormone similar to Human Growth Hormone, but first one being more important and powerful. IGF-1 – Insuline Growth Factor is one of the most important hormones in the human body, affecting almost all cells (muscle, cartilage, bone, liver, kidney, nerves and skin).
This hormone is widely used by athletes and bodybuilders.
Advantages that can be achieved at time of taking IGF-1 LR3 make it popular in bodybuilding. Sportsmen usually report muscle growth, regeneration of nerve tissue, fat burning, reduction of protein breakdown, improvement of the production of white blood cells.
IGF-1 destination is muscle repair after injury and increase the rate of muscle growth from training.
The results of IGF-1 are seemed for months after the athlete/bodybuilder stopped taking this drug. There are more other reason why it is well known in bodybuilding. Here are some of them. IGF-1 can be injected directly into the muscle; it never enters the blood stream. The better thing about this supplement is that it is undetectable by both blood and urine testing. That is why bodybuilders who have to pass the drug test can take it.
Effective dosages of IGF-1 are about 20mcg up to 120mcg during 4 weeks. But beginners are advised to start with 20-40mcg.
Many athletes like to take IGF-1 as a post cycle therapy (PCT). It is used to be taken in stack with other drug.
Side effects that can appear after taking IGF-1 are headaches, nausea, and accelerated growth of existing tumors. For this reason it is recommended for people who are somehow linked to tumor growth/cancer not to take this supplement.
