IGF-1 LR3 greatly boosts muscle mass by inducing a state of muscle hyperplasia.
Purchase a 30 ml of bacteriostatic water separately. One 30ml bottle will be enough for multiple vials of peptides.
Similar to insulin in its molecular properties, IGF-1 is a polypeptide hormone. IGF stands for insulin-like growth factor. IGF-1 LR3 is the primary protein when it comes to the responses of cells to growth hormone (also known as GH).
In our bodies, IGF-I is produced as a direct response to growth hormone and subsequently motivates cellular activities. An example of these cellular activities is hyperplasia (or muscle growth). IGF-1 has been pinpointed as causing muscle cell hyperplasia (the splitting and forming of new muscle cells). This particular compound also makes the human tissue more sensitive to insulin.
Amongst its different forms, IGF-1 LR3 is considered to be the most effective since the formula has been altered chemically to avoid the possibility of attaching itself to proteins in the human body. Its chemical reformulation also increases its half-life, bringing it up to 20 to 30 hours.
This IGF-1 analogue has been created to increase and improve the biological activity of the peptide. The benefits of this format of IGF-1 are an increase in amino acid transported to cells, increased protein synthesis, a decrease in protein deterioration, and a rise in glucose transport.
It has been noted that IGF behaves differently based on what kind of tissue it is active in.
When in muscle cells protein, and its associated cell components, is stimulated. It will also increase protein synthesis and amino acid absorption. Finally, IGF acts as an energy source as it mobilizes fat in adipose tissue to be used as energy.
When active in lean tissue, IGF-1 LR3 stops insulin from taking glucose through cell membranes. This forces cells to burn fat as an energy source instead of glucose.
IGF-1 LR3 also works in building new muscle tissue since it actively promotes protein synthesis and nitrogen retention which causes the growth of muscle through hyperplasia and mitogenesis (the new muscle fibre growth). In practice, this means that IGF-1 LR3 will grow muscle both in size as well as quantity.
