IGF-1 Extreme By APS Nutrition - 60 Caps - Muscle Builder
What Is APS Nutrition IGF-1 Extreme?
APS IGF-1 Xtreme is a growth factor which is very closely related to insulin. It carries the same amount of amino acids as insulin and responsible for the anabolic reactions to GH. IGF-1 is highly anabolic in adults and can help build lean muscle and help recovery times from grueling workouts. APS IGF-1 Xtreme with Deer Antler has been traditionally used for muscle strength and increased athletic performance, post workout recovery, anti-aging, improved sexual performance for men and women, joint support, and immune system operation. APS IGF-1 Xtreme contains 100mg Deer Antler Velvet Extract (30 to 100 times more than the competition) and is harvested from the antlers of growing deer, moose, caribou, and elk prior to hardening, with no harm to the animal. Deer Antler is a potent source of IGF-1, a growth hormone beneficial to muscle, nerve, and cell repair.
How Does APS Nutrition IGF-1 Extreme Work?
IGF-1 is released in the liver and binds to the IGF receptors within the cells, which ultimately causes a stimulation of cell growth (both causing new tissue formation and existing tissue growth) and an inhibition of cell death. It is a highly anabolic and anti-catabolic compound. For the athlete or bodybuilder, this had many positive effects: increased nitrogen retention and protein synthesis because it is highly anabolic. IGF-1 (in the presence of sufficient protein) actually promotes growth of new muscle cells, which increases the overall number of cells in the muscle. IGF-1 is also responsible in connective tissue production, improves collagen formation and aids in cartilage repair.
In a study done on young adult mice, a compound responsible for increased secretion of IGF-1 in muscle fibers was administered. There was an average increase of 15% in muscle mass and a 14% increase in strength. When the study was then conducted on adult mice, there was a 27% increase in strength in the injected muscles as compared with non-injected muscles. It was also found to prevent aging of the muscles. Muscle mass and muscle fiber growth were similar to the levels found in young adults. These effects are most likely due to the ability of IGF-1 to activate satellite cells, therefore stimulating muscle rejuvenation.
IGF-1 transports glucose and amino acids into muscle while stimulating muscle DNA. This results in a muscular development in youth and muscle preservation in old age. For the athlete it means peak performance and quick recovery from intense training or injury. Other tissues of the body benefit from IGF-1 because of the affect on DNA and RNA (Ribonucleic Acid and Deoxyribonucleic Acid - are nucleic acids that are an essential part of every living cell). This tends to stimulate a faster production of proteins such as enzymes that help conduct normal metabolism.
What Makes APS Nutrition IGF-1 Extreme Better Than The Rest?
APS IGF-1 Xtreme utilizes the purest form of Colostrum on the market and is a highly-concentrated source of powerful immune and growth factors and as a nutritional supplement, bovine colostrum provides exceptional, synergistic support. APS colostrum is 200-400% stronger than any other version on the market! Immunoglobins, the most abundant types of immune factors in colostrum, are large protein molecules that include Immunoglobins G (IgG), A (IgA), E (IgE), D (IgD), and M (IgM). APS Colostrum 80% also contains extremely high levels of proline-rich polypeptide (PRP's) and proteins to help aid in recovery and immune health. Each has a specific role in natural defense, including activation of various immune cells. IgG is found in the highest concentration and helps to neutralize toxins. Proline-rich Polypeptide (PRP) is a hormone produced by the thymus gland to help balance and activate the immune response. Growth factors include insulin growth factors (IGF-1 and IGF-2) and transforming growth factors (TGF-A and TGF-B). These growth factors, identical in composition to human growth factors, have the potential to enhance immune cell function and to nutritionally support healthy connective and nerve tissues in the body. Furthermore, growth factors promote glucose metabolism for fuel, support protein synthesis, and help maintain lean muscle. This supports healthy body composition and has demonstrated the ability to enhance speed and strength training. In fact, many world-class athletes are known to take it regularly. The reason it is receiving so much attention lately is due to the rapidly growing body of clinical evidence that demonstrates how it can support athletic performance.
All the technology above insures all of APS IGF-1 Xtreme and its ability to harness the power of Insulin Growth Factor-1 Xtreme from Deer Antler and colostrum's unique anabolic/anti-catabolic components not only survive, but are biologically active. Research has shown that most colostrum and IGF-1 is degraded and mostly destroyed by human stomach acids and digestive enzymes. To insure that APS IGF-1 Xtreme with Deer Antler and colostrum would make it into the GI tract APS developed the technology bove to provide a special delivery system that protects the active ingredients so they can survive the stomach passage intact and improve their absorption of Insulin Growth Factor-1 into the blood stream for significantly enhanced performance.
APS IGF-1 Xtreme also only uses Deer Antler that is derived from cold processed, concentrated Conu parvum deer velvet antler grown in New Zealand. APS IGF-1 Xtreme holds the worldwide rights to this unique product and advanced technology protein/peptide delivery system and is in the process of getting a patent for the above technology.

Overall Product Review
I'm in my bulking phase so carbs have increased and so did the weight. In a result of joints starting to ache a bit. But with IGF-1 my joints haven't really been aching and I've been adding on quality muscle. (Posted on 8/12/2016)
