We are sure that, by now, plenty of California residents have heard about the new supplement IGF-1. However, many people don’t know much more than what has been reported in the news. And unfortunately, the information in the media is not always correct. At BioProtein Technology, we are here to set the record straight about this ingredient, what it can do, and how it should be taken. We also want people to realize that not all IGF-1 is the same! Some manufacturers have begun to create synthetic versions in order to save money. However, at BioProtein Technology, you can be confident that our mixtures are all natural and never have artificial fillers or additives.
What is IGF-1 and How Does It Work?
Whenever a new supplement is first on the market, people want to learn everything they can about it, which is the smartest thing you can do. At BioProtein Technology, we encourage people to learn about every ingredient listed, since you should always know what you are putting in your body. That is why we have strived to keep all artificial fillers out of our products.
IGF-1, or insulin like growth factor, has been becoming increasingly more popular in California over the past few years. Although it has been used as a main ingredient in Eastern medicine for over 2,000 years, it is still relatively new in the Western world. This growth factor is actually naturally produced by our bodies, although levels do start to decrease as we age, which is what leads many middle aged people to start feeling more tired and less motivated to do the things they love. Humans are not the only ones to produce it though; the Cervidae family, including deer, moose, elk, and reindeer all use IGF-1 to grow their antlers at such an amazing rate of over 1 inch per day. Once the antlers become too large or heavy, they will fall off and begin the growing process all over again. This amazing feat is what drew Eastern medicine practitioners to start using deer antlers as supplements, unknowingly discovering the insulin like growth factor that we use today.
In fact, at BioProtein, we still continue to follow the ancient recipe, just with a few improvements. Instead of using deer, we use elk antler, since elk are larger and generally healthier than deer. We believe that using the antlers of healthy, happy elk will allow us to extract a higher quality of IGF-1.
Many doctors around the country have begun offering our products to their patients as an alternative to pharmaceuticals with great success. Medical Age Management out of Southern California uses Sub Mic and Sub D with positive results in weight loss and hormone support for their patients.
When you start supplementing with our IGF-1 products, some of the effects that you will experience include:
- Build muscle mass quicker
- Lose fat easier
- Less joint pain
- Anti-aging effects
- Stronger immune system
- Quicker workout recovery
At BioProtein Technology, we know just how beneficial it can be to start supplementing with IGF-1, which is why we want all residents of California and the United States to learn everything they can about it. It is almost important to note that many of the negative side effects that the media focuses on are attributed to the synthetic versions, not the natural one. When you take the natural version, any excess is filtered out through your kidneys; when you take the synthetic one, your body does not know what to do with the excess, so it stays in your body, causing a myriad of problems.
We are currently looking for doctor’s offices and health practitioners to offer our all natural products to their patients in California. If this is something you are interested in, contact us today for more information.
