What is IGF-1?
IGF-1 is produced by the liver and triggered by HGH (growth hormone). IGF-1 mediates the anabolic effects of HGH; it promotes growth in muscle cells, cartilage cells, bone cells and tissue cells. However, levels of IGF-1 decrease as you get older.
What Are the Benefits?
Research continues to be conducted about this injectable peptide. Some studies suggest that IGF-1 could help increase your muscle mass, reduce inflammation, decrease body fat and promote a healthy cardiovascular system.
Does It Need to Be Injected?
Yes, IGF-1 does need to be injected in order to be effective. Otherwise, it breaks down in your GI tract into ineffective fragments.
Do I Need IGF-1?
Not everyone needs IGF-1 therapy. To determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for IGF-1 therapy, HealthGains runs a number of diagnostic tests. If you’re not a suitable candidate, we offer several other options that may help you get to your goals.
Is IGF-1 FDA approved?
A branded form of IGF-1 called Increlex has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of severe pediatric IGF deficiency. Other variants if IGF-1 have not been approved by the FDA to treat or diagnose any disease and have not been determined by the FDA to be safe for any use. As with any medication, regardless of the conclusions of any peer-reviewed, independent investigational studies, the off-label prescribing of a medical product cannot be considered safe or effective for a particular use.
