IGF-LR3 is an engineered variant of the human insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) protein. It diverges from the natural IGF-1 by having an arginine instead of a glutamic acid at its third amino acid position, as well as an extra 13 amino acids at the beginning of its sequence. These changes result in a total of 83 amino acids, compared to IGF-1’s 70. These modifications allow IGF-LR3 to maintain the biological activity of IGF-1, while exhibiting low affinity for insulin-like growth factor-binding proteins (IGFBPs) and enhanced metabolic stability. Consequently, it is about three times as potent as IGF-1 and has an extended half-life of 20-30 hours, compared to IGF-1’s 12-15 hours. Due to its low affinity for IGFBPs, IGF-LR3 remains biologically active much longer—up to 120 times longer than standard IGF-1. This extended activity leads to benefits like enhanced cellular growth and division, improved fat metabolism, and increased muscle repair and growth by inhibiting myostatin. Additionally, IGF-LR3 restricts glucose uptake into cells, promoting fat utilization for energy production.

Benefits Include:

  • Helps production of protein synthesis in the body
  • It regulates the storage of fat and distributes it to be used for the production of energy.
  • Increases lean body mass and decreases fat
  • Increases the rejuvenating properties of the body’s nerve tissues.
  • Up-regulates anti-oxidant benefits
  • Helps in the development of hyperplasia in muscle cells, which lead to fuller muscle tissues

Frequently Asked Questions:

Pharmaceutical HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone that naturally occurs during the last trimester of pregnancy. In the context of weight loss, it’s used in its pharmaceutical-grade form, administered through injections, to aid in rapid and consistent weight loss when combined with specific meal plans and under medical supervision.

HCG works by altering the body’s chemical environment. While it doesn’t directly cause weight loss, it facilitates the process by reducing appetite, making the muscle more resistant to losing mass, and changing how the body loses weight. This means that with HCG, the body can target fat stores more effectively, leading to rapid weight loss.

The result timelines vary based on individual goals and adherence to the program. However, at Complete Medical Weight Loss and Anti-Aging Clinic, many patients have reported losing up to 45 pounds in 45 days or 28 pounds in 28 days.

Yes, the weight loss achieved through the HCG program can be sustainable. The key is the comprehensive approach taken at Complete Medical Weight Loss and Anti-Aging Clinic, which includes nutritional coaching and lifestyle guidance. This ensures that patients not only lose weight but also acquire the knowledge and habits to maintain their goal weight.
