Insulin Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1)
IGF-1 LR3 | Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 Long R3
IGF-1 Long R3 is a synthetic injectable form of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), used by bodybuilders to increase muscle mass. The IGF-1 Hormone was discovered in 1957. It was initially thought to aid cartilage regeneration. At the end of the 1970s, the name IGF-1 was adopted and its effects began to be studied.
Active Substance: Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 Long R3
Commercial Names: IGF-1 LR3, Igtropin
Drug Class / Purpose: Hormones / For Muscle Mass Gain And Fat Burn
IGF-1 LR3 is actually the synthesized variant of IGF-1, but it is active in the body for a longer period of time and is 3 times more potent than normal IGF-1. It belongs to the same family of hormones as insulin and is actually the anabolic mediator of human growth hormone (HGH).
IGF-1 LR3 promotes development in almost all tissues. Not only the muscles but also the internal organs, brain and eyes. Although IGF-1 LR3 promotes anabolism throughout the body, it cannot be said that it is dangerous to use to increase muscle mass (but the danger of increasing internal organs cannot be ignored).
IGF-1 LR3 helps in better muscle cell activity and a better concentration of protein in muscles. Human growth hormone and IGF-1 LR3 are potent hormones that manifest their anabolic properties differently from anabolic steroids.
The main benefits of IGF-1 Long R3:
- Gain of smooth muscle mass
- Strength and stimulation of thermogenesis (fat loss)
- Increased appetite
- Better pumping
In a 30-day cycle can earn an average of 2-3 kilograms of quality muscle mass. Some bodybuilders have claimed they gained 6-8 kg using only IGF-1 Long R3 in 4-week cycles. However, taked solo, it is not as effective as steroids, but it is powerful enough for a non-steroidal anabolic substance. Also keeping the muscle mass gained after the cycle is very high, which cannot be said about steroids. This is due to several factors, including the lack of hormonal crash.
IGF-1 LR3 Dosage
The dose for IGF-1 LR3 is 20mcg-80mcg/day. The daily dose can be divided into two, one injection every 10-12 hours. Some bodybuilders take doses greater than 100mcg/day, and top professionals use even over 200 mcg per day. Amateur bodybuilders take 30mcg/day, which allows that a 1 milligram vial to be enough for 1 month.
