People often debate about post-cycle therapy (PCT, Recovery): Clomid, Nolvadex, or both?
IGF-1: still called somatomedin C this abbreviation comes from the English insulin-like growth factor-1 which could result in insulin-like growth factor 1.
The IGF-1 in the "PCT"
Research has shown that theHGH (growth hormone) is of vital importance in testicular function, but it is generally accepted that the beneficial effects are directly brought about by the conversion of HGH to IGF-1.
As many of you already know, IGF-1 is secreted by the liver when stimulated by HGH. We will therefore focus on the benefits associated with the use of IGF-1 rather than HGH in post-cycle therapy recovery after a steroid cure. The IGF-1 generates better results.
The IGF-1 Increases STAR (acute steroidal regulatory protein) and cholesterol chain (enzymatic cleavage CYP 11A). These are two important steps that are major factors in the conversion of cholesterol into hormones, especially testosterone.
IGF-1 also has the ability to increase the concentration of steroidal enzymes in the testes, such as the progesterone synthesizer enzyme. It can also increase testicular sensitivity to LH (luteinizing hormone) and HCG (gonadotropin) by increasing the number of LH receptors.
People who have used the IGF1 in their PCTs know the incredible speed at which the testicles recover their size after the cure. Those who used it during one cycle noted very little atrophy
The benefits are many:
- More anabolic effects
- Better preservation of your gains
- No side effects
So the REVOLUTION for recovery.
OTHER PEPTIDES IN THE "PCT"
IGF-1 is not the only useful peptide for the PCT, two other peptides also have some interest.
- First, let's talk about theIpamorelin :
It should be known that in case of increased production of prolactin * or cortisol *, there is an inhibitory effect on recovery. TheIpamorelin Has no direct effect on these 2 hormones and is therefore beneficial to the secretion of HGH.
That said increase in secretion of natural HGH says increase in natural production of the IGF-1. Ipamorelin is therefore the known marker to improve the production of HGH.
- Now it's the turn of CJC-1295 DAC :
The half-life of this product reworked compared to the initial (CJC-1295) is eight times as long.
The version CJC-1295 DAC therefore increases the purge HGH and can be used to enhance the effects of IGF-1. Indeed, a constant release of HGH significantly increase the amount of IGF-1 secreted by the liver.
The combination of these two peptides gives you every opportunity to maintain your gains and prevent catabolic effects due to increased cortisol. Keep this important aspect in mind.
BETTER CONSERVATION OF YOUR GAINS!
It is important to add that DHT (dihydrotestosterone), secreted by IGF-1, combines with the SHBG (Sex Hormone-binding globulin) and leaves testosterone free, to lengthen its anabolic effects. In this way, you do not kill estrogen but you prevent them from binding to receptors.
It is thus of gold and already a most important advantage between a re-launch to the peptides and a re-launch by conventional protection. Indeed, we know that the latter has a tendency to limit the gains. Estrogen can play a role in the proliferation of androgen receptors.
This may explain why some experienced steroid users say they get a decrease in results when adding an anti-estrogen in their cycle ...
Perhaps the reason why many of today's bodybuilders may have a slight gynecomastia because they do not use anti-estrogens for maximum gain.
Add to that the increased sensitivity of LH (Luteinizing Hormone) and the anabolic effects of IGF-1, and you are already understanding that with peptides, you have a much better PCT.
One last tip: eating more cholesterol-rich products while using IGF-1 will help you produce more testosterone.
IT'S SIMPLE AND ESPECIALLY.
Do not hesitate to come and discover our range of peptides.
*Cortisol : Steroid hormone (corticosteroid) secreted by the cortex (the outer part) of the adrenal gland from cholesterol.
*Prolactin : hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary that primarily allows the initiation and maintenance of lactation. It also acts on the secretion of progesterone in women, and testosterone in men.
*Acute regulatory protein steroidal : positive nitrogen balance, allows the assimilation of proteins by the muscles.
