Pure Solutions Pure Factors Premium provides 120% more Growth Factors for people looking for maximum support resulting in an enhanced metabolism, additional energy, increased libido, fat loss, muscle tone and overall well being.
We know that extreme exertion can accelerate the aging process, which in turn can cause a rapid breakdown in hormonal/Growth Factor production. The Growth Factors and anabolic compounds available in the Cellular ProFormance Complex in Pure Factors Premium come from natural sources such as Velvet Antler and Tribulus and, thanks to a revolutionary discovery, the Growth Factors in Pure Factors Premium are available as a pure, high potency extract.
These Growth Factors play important roles in the following:
- Muscle Growth/Support
- Immune Support
- Libido/Sexual Function
- Bone Density
- Joint/Connective Tissue
- Fat Loss
What Do Growth Factors Do?
Insulin-like Growth Factors 1 and 2 (IGF-1 and IGF-2)
- IGF-1 and IGF-2 has been shown to help increase lean body mass, reduce fat, build muscle and build bone while also assisting in the metabolism of glucose.
- Research has indicated that IGF-1 is involved in the absorption of glucosamine sulfate and chondrotin sulfate, two well known nutrients used for joint health.
- Research has also shown that a decrease in IGF-1 levels is a contributing factor towards the development of bone disorder.
- Additionally, many scientists consider IGF to be an indicator of growth hormone status. IGF-1 acts in a manner very similar to insulin, to the point that cell receptors can become suppressed, which can in turn cause growth hormone to release stored fat. The result of this is that cells will burn fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.
Transforming Growth Factors A and B (TGF-A and TGF-B)
Through a combined effort with Epidermal Growth Factor and Platelet-Derived Growth Factor, TGF-A promotes normal wound healing. TFG-B has an anti-inflammatory response to cytokine production and mesenchymal (MHC) expression. This promotes wound healing in a combined effort with TGF-A, EGF and PDG. Without TGF-B, wound healing would, as with TGF-A, be extremely difficult and an important "feedback loop" for cytokine anti-inflammatory production would be missing. It should be noted that TGF A & B needs to be in a natural matrix of co-factors for normal tissue development to occur, regardless of whether this occurs through wound healing or regeneration.
Absorbing Growth Factors & Receptors
Growth factors (purple and yellow) bind to receptors (blue and green) on the surface of a cell. Looking at cross-section view shows how the opposite end of each receptor reaches the inside of the cell (deep red area).
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
EGF promotes healthy tissue development while slowing abnormal growth. In addition, EGF has been shown to reduce the production of gastric acid as well as promoting mesenchymal (lymphatic), glial (nerve), and epithelial (skin) cell proliferation.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
By providing the essentail co-factors for repair and restoration of damaged vessels, VEGF promotes arteriole, capillary, venous and venule health.
Neurotrophin Growth Factor (NGF)
NGF works with nerve growth factor to promote neurite and nerve survival and development.
