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
Those few body builders
that have obtained real recombinant 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
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
According to researcher Eric Dupont, Ph.D., "Growth
hormone is the general and growth factors are the foot soldiers."
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.
