Increases protein synthesis
Stimulates muscle growth (hypertrophy)
Promotes creation of new muscle fibers (hyperplasia)
Promotes nitrogen retention
Mechano growth factor (MGF) is a novel splice variant of the Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1), also known as IGF-1 Ec in humans and IGF-1Eb in rodents. It is actually originally called MGF because the RNA form of it is expressed in muscle tissues in response to the overload or/and damage of muscle growth tissue. MGF is produced naturally when muscle fibers are broken down through resistance. MGF stimulates muscle growth, creates new muscle fibers, promotes nitrogen retention and increases protein synthesis thus aiding in recovery.
