Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1, commonly referred to as IGF-1 is a polypeptide hormone that belongs to the growth factor hormone family. This is a naturally produced hormone in all human beings with production primarily occurring in the liver, and to a degree in the peripheral tissues. However, synthetic versions do exist and are produced by recombinant DNA technology.

IGF-1 is a highly anabolic hormone that affects numerous areas of the human body. It also shares an important relationship with Human Growth Hormone (HGH), and on a structural basis is similar to insulin. There are several synthetic IGF-1 products on the market, but perhaps the most well-known is Increlex manufactured by Tercia INC.

In a therapeutic setting IGF-1 is primarily used to treat IGF-1 deficiencies. However, it is also used in patients who do not respond to HGH. With this type of therapy, the individual may very well have plenty of HGH in his system but for one reason or another is not responding to the hormone. IGF-1 treatment for this purpose is FDA approved, but it is considered very controversial by some medical professionals due to the possible metabolic effects that could occur. Then we have performance enhancement, and in recent years IGF-1 has become an important hormone in this arena. It is powerfully anabolic, will carry strong recovery properties and has become a favorite of many in bodybuilding circles.

IGF-1 Administration:

IGF-1 doses and specific protocols of use is a bit of a controversial topic in both the medical and performance enhancement community. In a therapeutic setting, IGF-1 doses will normally fall in the 40-80mcg ranges and may be given 1-2 times per day. This is undoubtedly a large, very large dose, and it can be hard to control for some when we consider hypoglycemia. Most physicians will not have the individual start above 40mcg and levels will be monitored closely. Dosing may be increased by 20mcg if needed but will not surpass 120mcg for any reason as this will be extremely difficult to even impossible to control regarding hypoglycemia.

In a performance setting, 50-60mcg per day is very common, but it’s also often overkill. It will not take a lot of IGF-1 to produce phenomenal results if the individual is eating enough food and using anabolic steroids. Add in the recommended HGH use with your IGF-1 and the results will be remarkable. Most individuals could easily start with 15mcg per day once per day and slightly increase the dose if needed, but this is an excellent starting point and will be all the IGF-1 many ever need.

Then we have total use. In a performance setting, IGF-1 will be used for 2-4 weeks flowed by 2-4 weeks of no IGF-1 repeating as many times as necessary or desired. Many, as briefly discussed early on will continue their IGF-1 use past their anabolic steroid cycle into a bridge phase where a low dose of testosterone and HGH is maintained. This is, however, only something the hardcore and experienced hormone user will undertake. If you are coming off cycle and entering the PCT phase, IGF-1 use is not recommended as the promotion of excess body fat will be a great risk.
