IGF-1 is a polypeptide hormone, very similar to insulin as far as molecular properties go, hence the “IGF” standing for “insulin-like growth factor”. IGF-1 LR3 is a chemically altered form of IGF-1, only more potent. It is also debated as to if it creates muscle hyperplasia, which would increase the total number of new muscle cells created into the muscle it was specifically injected into. This makes it ideal for bringing up lagging body parts.
Benefits of IGF-1 LR3:
Increased Muscle Mass
Reduced Body Fat
Reduction in Age-Related Atrophy
Growth of New Muscle Fibers
Reversal of Testicular Atrophy
Mixing, Storing, and Dosing IGF-1 LR3
Mixing of IGF-1 LR3 should be done as many other peptides, by mixing in bacteriostatic water carefully down the side with an insulin syringe. Store the dry, unused powder at room temperature in a dark, dry place. Once mixed, it must be stored in a dry, cold place such as the refrigerator. When mixing, it is important not to shake the vial too hard, or this will cause the hormone to become denatured and unstable.
A common dose for IGF-1 LR3 is 20-60mcg per day. The best method of injection is intramuscular. Because of IGF1 lr3’s ability to increase the total number of muscle cells, it’s also suggested to inject it into body parts that you wouldn’t mind growing, or the muscle group being worked. Users have said to have increased muscle pumps when injecting it pre-workout into the muscle group they’re working for that day. The most optimal times for injection are during the morning after waking, and immediately post workout.
