IGF-1, also known as Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 is a peptide that belongs to the growth hormone family. IGF-1 is a hormone that looks similar in structure to the hormone insulin. Your body naturally produces IGF-1, primarily occurring in the liver.
IGF-1 is a nutrient pusher just like insulin does, it moves nutrients into the muscle cells. The difference, however; insulin pushes nutrients through your whole body, not only to your muscle tissue. IGF-1 only pushes nutrients through your muscle tissue. Because of this, IGF-1 is extremely anabolic and effective.
When using IGF-1, your body will stay lean and will create muscle mass much easier. Your body will recover faster because of the nutrients that are pushed to your muscle tissue after your training.
20-60 mcg after your work-out in the muscle(s) that you have trained.
