A Synergistic Combination That Promotes Dramatic Growth!
You've got to do a lot of things right to get the massive muscle size, density, strength and hardness you see among the nationally-ranked and pro-level bodybuilders. You've got to keep you protein intake high, train aggressively, manage your carb intake, get sufficient rest, etc. But let's face it - you can do everything right and your gains will still be limited unless you also do something to increase your testosterone and growth hormone levels.
Only IGF-2 "Immediate Growth Factor" provides the mechanisms to trigger exponential increases in both serum testosterone and human growth hormone levels. The effects of this ground-breaking formulation can be felt just days after starting. Even hardcore bodybuilders rave about this formulation, reporting that it keeps them from "crashing" during off cycles, allowing for continuous, compound muscle growth! Every component of this revolutionary formula either directly or indirectly promotes testosterone and/or HGH production, while also triggering powerful fat-burning mechanisms. The result? Everything you want: Massive increases in muscle size, strength, leanness and density!
The synergistic compounds contained in IGF-2 stimulate a variety of complex reactions and messenger systems in the body, and promote healthy testosterone production. IGF-2 contains large amounts of Spirosta-steroidal saponins which are intermediates to numerous hormonal pathways in the body, including testosterone production. When ingested, desoxydiosgenin that is contained in Applied Nutriceuticals IGF-2 is enzymatically converted to 11-oxa-5 alpha-androstane-3,17-dione, a portion of which is then converted to testosterone through the testes. Increased levels of testosterone signals the muscles to increase protein synthesis and nitrogen retention, leading to greater strength, size and recovery.
IGF-2 drives other dynamic biomechanisms including L-Dopa-induced growth hormone release, and increased testosterone secretion through prolactin inhibition. Prolactin is a hormone that regulates testosterone production, and too much of it can suppress the secretion of gonadotropins, which ultimately hinders testosterone production. The variety of Mucuna Pruriens used in IGF-2 is standardized to 25% L-Dopa, delivering large amounts of this ingredient per capsule. L-Dopa is a precursor to Dopamine, a powerful biogenic amine, and L-Dopa is the only method of transport of Dopamine through the blood-barrier. L-Dopa-induced GHRH release (growth hormone releasing hormone) signals the pituitary to release HGH. HGH is essentially a polypeptide hormone that stimulates skeletal muscle cells to grow and divide; providing for significant, permanent muscle hypertrophy in adults. HGH also aids in cellular recovery and acts synergistically with testosterone to provide a highly anabolic muscle-building environment.
IGF-2 also stimulates the production of cyclic AMP (cAMP) from ATP. cAMP generation has a variety of effects on tissues, but the most notable is the stimulation of the thyroid to produce thyroxin, which promotes fat metabolization. The increased cAMP levels activate the protein kinase enzyme, which in turn activates hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) in target tissues. cAMP also signals for the production of luteinizing hormone (LH), which helps support healthy testosterone levels in males. Elevated levels of cAMP and LH stimulate a marked increase in the use of fat as body fuel, and are strongly correlated to increased testosterone production.
In a study conducted at the Tomsk State University and Medical Institute in Russia, the form of rhodiola rosea found in IGF-2 demonstrated the ability to stimulate greater ATP enhancement and creatine phosphate storage. Mice were administered rhodiola supplementation and made to swim to exhaustion twice a day for six days. At the end of the testing period, muscle biopsies were performed, and the mice were found to have 17% greater ATP levels, 45% greater creatine phosphate stores and 53% greater muscle glycogen levels. Decreased intramuscular concentrations of lactic acid and ammonia were also observed. Human studies suggest rhodiola may have significant stress reduction effects, which helps control muscle breakdown during training and/or stress. In short; IGF-2 delivers the goods: Explosive growth. Accelerated recovery. Fat metabolization. Anti-catabolism. If you are serious about results, there really is no other choice.
