IGF-1 LR3 is a polypeptide long-chain amino acid peptide hormone. Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1 Long-Arginine 3), an 83 amino acid analogue of IGF-1, is a highly anabolic hormone released primarily in the liver with the stimulus of growth hormone (HGH).
IGF-1 LR3 plays an essential role in cell proliferation, cell-to-cell communication and cell division.
IGF-1 LR3 is a derivative of IGF-1. Due to its structural adjustment, IGF-1 LR3 has a much longer half-life, and results may persist in the bloodstream for up to 120 times longer.
IGF-1 LR3 is primarily used to increase the biological activity of IGF. When IGF-1 LR3 is mobile in the body, it functions differently in individual types of tissues. For example, muscle tissue forces the muscle to be more sensitive to insulin’s effects, such as decreased fat storage.
IGF-1 LR3 is recommended to patients with the following conditions: hormone deficiency in children that results in short stature, adult growth deficiency, short bowel syndrome, short stature due to Turner Syndrome, adult deficiency associated with pituitary tumours or treatment of these muscle-wasting diseases
Mechanism of Action
IGF-1 LR3 binds to cell receptors in the muscle cells and activates cell communication, which then improves the growth rate of muscles.
IGF-1 LR3 obstructs the movement of glucose into the body’s cells, which facilitates fat burning and the use of fat in the body to produce energy. IGF-1 LR3 has a life in the body for about 20-30 hours and therefore enhances muscle growth for a whole day.
