WHAT IS LR3 IGF-1?
Long R3 IGF-1 is an 83 amino acid analog of IGF-1 comprising the
complete human IGF-1 sequence with the substation of an Arg(R) for the
Glu (E) at position three, hence R3, and a 13 amino acid extension
peptide at the N terminus. This analog of IGF-1 has been produced with
the purpose of increasing the biological activity of the IGF peptide.
ok.... now in plain english:
Lr3igf-1 stands for insulin like growth factor. It mimics insulin in
the human body and also at the same time makes the muscles more
sensitive to insulin's effects. It is a growth factor and is the most
potent one in the human body at that. IGF causes muscle cell
hyperplasia, which is an actual splitting and forming of new muscle
cells. This was thought to only be possible during puberty. IGF is much
more potent at this effect than growth hormone is, in fact almost all
of the effects you see from growth hormone come from the increased
amount of IGF that your liver produces when the GH is destroyed. So it
would be very easy to say that IGF is a much more potent and cheaper
alternative to GH use, although GH is more effective for fat loss than
IGF due to some other effects that it causes such as metabolism
increase and the ability to effectively use more insulin, t3, and
Another advantage that IGF has over GH is that it has much more of an
affinity to attach to muscle cells instead of bone and organ cells.
Growth hormone has been know to cause a lot of organ enlargement and
bone elongation since it attaches to all types of receptor cells. IGF
is much more likely to go where we want it, our muscle cells. IGF-1
attaches to myogenic stem cells, which are only located in muscle and
connective tissues. These myogenic stem cells are responsible for the
production of myoblast cells, which in turn are responsible for the
buildup and repair of connective tissues (ligaments, tendons,
cartilage, and joints to a certain extent).
So from this you can see that Lr3igf-1 is great for increasing the
strength of tendons and also for helping to heal existing injuries
while at the same time helping to prevent them. IGF-1 is also
responsible for increased protein synthesis and amino acid synthesis.
IGF does not have to be used along with anabolic steroids, GH, insulin,
or thyroid hormones to be effective. It causes muscle growth on its
own. In fact some people prefer to use it during their breaks from
steroid cycles since IGF has no effect on natural test production. It
could effectively be used along with HCG, Clomid, and PGF2a for a hell
of an off cycle stack which would allow your body to return to normal
and still allow you to grow!!
On its own IGF will give an increase of around 2 lbs. of new solid lean
muscle tissue every two weeks, and is also is know for its ability to
strip off body fat and GREATLY increase vascularity, body fat decreases
of 5-8% over a 50 day cycle are not uncommon.
But, of course you will be much happier with the results if you use the
IGF along with anabolic steroids, testosterone, and insulin.
The use of steroids along with the IGF allow you to quickly mature and
strengthen the new muscle tissue that the IGF has formed, and may also
speed the process of hyperplasia. If you need any help setting up a
great stack to use along with the IGF just let me know and I can help
you out. I speak with lots of top bodybuilders and guru's so I am very
Also I should let you know that the form of igf-1 is the Long R3
analog. It has been chemically altered and has a longer half-life than
regular IGF, which only lasts about 10 minutes in the human body once
injected. The Long R3 IGF-1 has a half-life of 6-10 hours, so you will
only need to inject once or twice per day. The best time to inject is
after lifting and in the morning, so it would be best to use half the
dosage in the morning and the other half after lifting. This will take
maximal advantage of IGF's insulin mimicking effects.
Each one of our kits comes in a 2ml vial containing 1000mcg of LR3
IGF-1, and is the highest quality media grade IGF-1.
