IGF-1?


#1

Hey,

I was wondering, what exactly is IGF-1? I have read a bunch of threads on use and experiences but haven't really found a lot telling what it really is. Is it a steroid? Is it legal? I'm just trying to gain some knowledge on this. Thanks for any help.

When one takes human growth hormone, the hGH will act upon the liver to produce the hormone responsible for the desired effects, which is IGF-1. It stands for insulin growth factor-one, the more anabolic hormone of the pair created.
