The benefits of IGF-1 in GenF20 Plus
Did you know that Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (or IGF-1 for short) is actually very important if you desire to reap any benefits of a HGH based anti ageing based program? IGF-1 is the metabolite of HGH, and the main way the body derives any benefit from HGH. Any HGH that is secreted by the pituitary gland needs to be turned into IGF-1 in the liver before it can be used by the cells and the body. This is why GenF20 Plus has ingredients that contain a high level of IGF-1.
IGF-1 exerts most of the effects we see with HGH. The benefits of IGF-1 are similar to what you would get with HGH. There are the usual benefits like:
- Reduce fat
- Increase lean body mass
- Improve glucose metabolism
- Assist in healing of wounds and tissue wear
- Help to regenerate nerves
- Rebuild bone mass
- Help with muscle growth
IGF-1 acts like a regulator of HGH; when IGF-1 levels rise to a certain level in the loop, it signals the shutdown of HGH. But a “lag time” in this cycle means that HGH levels are usually highest at night, and IGF-1 levels are usually highest during the day. By supplementing IGF-1, many anti ageing experts believe this can boost the overall HGH cycle.
There are two ingredients in the GenF20 Plus formula, which naturally contain high amounts of IGF-1. These are colostrum and deer antler velvet. Colostrum is the first milk that mammals (including man) receive from their mother. It is naturally fortified with antibodies and growth factors which aid growth, like IGF-1.
Deer antler velvet is the immature antlers of deer which is harvested just before they mature. During this stage of its development, the IGF-1 level in the antlers is at its maximum. The high content of IGF-1 in the antlers explains why they grow so fast; in fact, deer antlers are the fastest growing type of mammal bone in the world.
Bodybuilders and athletes are firm believers in IGF-1, and that is why many take supplements to do just that (legally or otherwise). By taking GenF20 Plus which contains these two nutrients, you are also increasing your own IGF-1 levels, which in turn should help bring about the results you desire (although you are doing it the all natural way)!
