What is IGF-1?

In a interview, Dr. Spyros Mezitis of the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York explained that IGF-1 is a growth factor that acts like insulin - a naturally occurring hormone that circulates in the human body. He further explained that our endocrine system’s pituitary gland produces growth hormones, which help children grow and make their bones stronger as their bodies mature. The growth hormone stimulates the liver to produce the chemical called IGF-1, which binds receptors in the muscle cells, signaling the cells to grow and multiply. Dr. Mezitis adds that IGF-1 helps in boosting muscle strength, as well as increasing the metabolism to bring more sugar to the muscle cells.

In a scientific article published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information, it was concluded that IGF-1 is an important growth hormone as it mediates linear growth and protein anabolic that promotes the effect of the pituitary growth hormones. IGF-1 also has a stimulating effect on growth hormones in respect to cartilage cells.

IGF-1 & Injuries

IGF-1 affects the body’s capability to repair itself. The insulin hormone helps in the building of essential protein block matrices or bases that are needed in cell growth. IGF-1 increases the number of fresh cells accumulating on the matrix, which the body uses in healing injuries. In a scientific research article published in the FASEB Journal, researchers found that the treatment of injuries with high levels of IGF-1 significantly increased the rate of muscle regeneration.
