IGF-1 is a biologically active peptide mainly produced in the liver and muscles; it’s a major mediator of the growth hormone. It has an anabolic effect and triggers muscle hyperplasia. The IGF-1 molecule consists of 70 amino acids and has a short half-life in the body (about 10-20 minutes); that is why it has a short period of action.
As IGF-1 has a short half-life, its molecule was modified, and a long acting form (IGF-1 LR3), with a half life of 20-30 hours and more than two times activity, has been received. IGF-1 LR3 more effectively inhibits cellular uptake of glucose, thereby causing the body to burn fats for energy.
IGF-1 LR3 is ideal for those who want to increase lean muscle mass. This peptide works incredibly quickly, so you will see results immediately.
IGF-1 LR3 has a high anabolic index. The main effect is expressed in muscle hyperplasia (increase of muscle fibers). As studies have shown, hyperplasia manifests itself even in the elder athletes.
The effect of the drug on the human body is similar to that of the growth hormone; 100 micrograms of IGF-1 LR3 is equivalent 16.25-25 IU of the growth hormone.
The main effects of using IGF-1 LR3 are as follows:
- Stimulates muscle fiber hyperplasia;
- Reduces fat deposits;
- Increases energy reserves of the body;
- Improves glucose and amino acid transportation.
IGF-1 LR3 outweighs the action of the artificial growth hormone in fat-burning properties.
