What is IGF-1 Deer Velvet Spray?
IGF-1 is the ultimate health, muscle and anti-aging factor. Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) is made primarily in the liver in response to Human Growth Hormone (HGH) release. Unfortunately as we age we experience a relative HGH deficiency due to a lowered release from the pituitary resulting in a concomitant loss of IGF-1. The vast number of benefits of IGF-1 centers around muscle development and performance. 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. Other tissues of the body benefit from IGF-1 because of the effect on DNA and RNA. These nucleic acids are an essential part of every living cell.
How is Deer Velvet Produced?
Deer antlers grow at incredible speed and, after several weeks, as the antlers reach their final size, the cartilage within them gradually converts into bone. In the final process, the antler's blood supply and nerves are lost. When the antlers have fully hardened, the stags rub them against trees or rocks to remove the skin that remains. As a result of this rubbing, the deer develop sharp bony weapons for combat against threats to their harem of females during the autumn rut or mating season .Each Spring the antler cycle begins anew and the skin around the pedicle expands and grows, initiating new antler growth. The hard antler from the previous season is cast off and the growth of the new season's velvet crop begins. It is then that the velvet is harvested for its medicinal and performance qualities.
A new miracle molecule of the 21st century
Culminating over 20 years of development, research and recent clinical testing, IGF-1 uses a cold processing extraction. When combined with a liposome-based spray, it has a greater potential to permeate all tissues, even the blood brain barrier, as well as becoming a factor in the anti-aging movement. Where anti-aging is concerned, IGF-1 may be considered as a new miracle molecule of the 21st century. Our Liposome system delivers IGF-1 directly into the bloodstream with a 98% absorption rate.
