Claimed to be the secret to dramatic increases in muscle mass, fat burning, and anti-aging, IGF-1 Protocol offers everything you need to achieve ultimate health.

According to the official site, this supplement was developed after years of research and features a wide array of clinically proven ingredients.

When used regularly, IGF-1 Protocol provides a “never-ending list of benefits.”

But is IGF-1 Protocol an ideal choice?

Key Ingredients

As with any performance enhancing supplement, the secret to IGF-1 Protocol’s success lies in its formula. When I first looked at the label, I was impressed to find the following ingredients:

Deer Antler Velvet. Deer antler velvet is quickly becoming one of the most controversial ingredients in athletics. While legal to use in sports competitions, it contains the component IGF-1, a precursor hormone which mediates muscle growth and is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency. In fact, studies have shown IGF-1 stimulates muscle growth by inhibiting protein breakdown. [1]

Mucuna Pruriens. Also known as cowhage, this herb supplies a healthy dose of levodopa (L-dopa), a compound which stimulates the release of human growth hormone (HGH) [2]. Additionally, researchers have found mucuna pruriens doubles as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease. [3]

GABA. GABA plays an important role in nerve transmission in the brain, but it has a more powerful effect on HGH. Studies show GABA supplements stimulate HGH secretion, resulting in significant increases when subjects were given 300 mg after an overnight fast. [4]

Alpha GPC. Alpha GPC is a powerful antioxidant commonly used to improve carbohydrate breakdown and boost energy. Additionally, researchers have found alpha GPC enhances growth hormone function, especially when given to elderly subjects. [5]

L-Glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue, and it is a powerful immunity booster. In a recent study, oral glutamine increased HGH secretion within 90 minutes after consumption. [6]

L-Arginine. Arginine is an amino acid that improves blood flow. Recent research has found it also has a positive effect on growth hormone response. Subjects taking dose-dependent arginine supplements experienced an increase in growth hormone levels by at least 100%. When combined with exercise, this production percentage doubles. [7]

L-Isoleucine. Isoleucine is a branched chain amino acid, or BCAA. According to WebMD experts, BCAAs stimulate muscle growth and reduce muscle breakdown. [8]

Epimedium. Also known as horny goat weed, epimedium is popularly used as an ingredient for male enhancement due to its ability to promote blood flow and support sexual function. Epimedium features the chemical icariin, which mimics testosterone and increases the production of NO for improved pumps. [9][10]

L-Tyrosine. Tyrosine is an amino acid popularly used to reduce stress. As stress has a negative impact on HGH production, this ingredient could be a useful tool for improving its secretion. In recent research tyrosine effectively reduced blood pressure and cognitive performance in subjects under physical stress. [11]

As you can see, each of these ingredients is clinically proven to boost HGH production or improve muscle growth.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

A few of IGF-1 Protocol’s ingredients are known to cause mild side effects. For example, arginine reduces blood pressure, and when taken with blood pressure medication it could cause blood pressure to drop to dangerous levels. [12]

Fortunately, IGF-1 Protocol utilizes ingredients in safe amounts and there are no side effects reported from IGF-1 Protocol use.

Recommended Usage

To maximize results, use IGF-1 Protocol before bedtime and in the morning before breakfast. Spray 3-6 times under the tongue, hold for a few seconds, and then swallow. Shake well before use.

As with any supplement, it’s best to combine IGF-1 Protocol with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Is IGF-1 Protocol A Good Choice?

IGF-1 Protocol offers a good selection of ingredients to maximize workout results. It is backed with plenty of research, making it a reliable supplement for any user.

I think IGF-1 Protocol looks like a great deal, but what do you think?

    • Mariana,
      Yes this product is safe for both men and women. The bottle does warn though that if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking any medications that you should consult your doctor before use.
