IGF-1 as “a peptide hormone that mediates the function of growth hormone; responsive to protein-energy status”. In other words, IGF-1 assists growth hormone in its function and is itself influenced by protein and energy intake.
A primary mediator of the effects of growth hormone (GH). Growth hormone is made in the anterior pituitary gland, is released into the blood stream, and then stimulates the liver to produce IGF-1. IGF-1 then stimulates systemic body growth, and has growth-promoting effects on almost every cell in the body, especially skeletal muscle, cartilage, bone, liver, kidney, nerves, skin, hematopoietic cell, and lungs.
In addition to the insulin-like effects, IGF-1 can also regulate cell growth and development, especially in nerve cells, as well as cellular DNAsynthesis.
Through the IBP molecular testing, the level of IGF can be traced and titrate accordingly via the proper diet based on your cellular test.
There are several food that can increase your IGF level in your blood and it can be identified through the IBP molecular testing. Get to know your IGF level first, Then it is easier to solve your problem.
