Promotes muscle development
Long arginine 3-IGF-1, abbreviated as IGF-1 LR3 or as LR3-IGF-1, is a synthetic protein and lengthened analogue of human insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). As a result, it is approximately three times more potent than IGF-1, and possesses a significantly longer half-life of about 20–30 hours (relative to IGF-1’s half-life of about 12–15 hours). IGF-1 LR3 has many benefits ranging from its cardio-protective ability to improving neurogenesis and cogitative function. It will slow down muscle tissue degeneration and it will also assist with the synthesis of proteins.
IGF1 LR3 allows for many of the growth-promoting effects of growth hormone insulin-like growth factors also know as IGF’s. IGF-1 LR3 comprises a family of peptides (protiens) that play important roles in mammalian growth and development. IGF1 LR3 is also known as Long R3 IGF-1 or Insulin-Like Growth Factor-I Long Arg3.
The Long R3 IGF-1 version is significantly more potent than regular IGF-1. The enhanced potency is due to the decreased binding of IGF1 LR3 to all known IGF binding proteins. These binding proteins normally inhibit the biological actions of IGF’s therefore IG-1 LR3 has been shown to have increased efficacy and function .
