PEG-MGF - increase your recovery potential

There is no doubt that - in order to increase muscle strength and size - you need to stimulate them with regular training. The more you optimize the effort you subject your muscle fibers to, the more likely it is that they will grow, and you will achieve the desired results.

But you can't forget about a key issue, without which, even after training to muscle failure, you wouldn't experience the effect of muscle tissue growth. We're talking about regeneration, because it's really only during the regeneration process that our muscles grow, tendons and joints strengthen.

During training, our tissues are exposed to micro-damage, which then need a long enough recovery period to rebuild stronger. During rest, there is a release of growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor type 1 (IGF-1), which provokes anabolic processes that rebuild tissues. It is then that we observe what we can be proud of - progress in virtually every sport.

Unfortunately, as we age, our endocrine system loses its earlier effectiveness, and even at a young age we would like to ensure the best possible recovery. The answer to these ills may be PEG-MGF.

What is PEG-MGF?

PEG-MGF is a pegylated mechanical growth factor, or anabolic peptide, which results from the cleavage of IGF-1 during increased muscle activity. The main function of this peptide is tissue regeneration. Thanks to the pegylation process (the addition of polyethylene glycol), the half-life of MGF has been increased from 5 minutes to as much as 48 hours, which is the ideal time between exercising a specific muscle part. This makes it possible to use it before a workout.

PEG-MGF is used not only for post-workout recovery, however. Thanks to its properties, the peptide will also prove useful for accelerating the healing of wounds or bone injuries, and will even help increase skeletal density.

How to use PEG-MGF?

In our store, the peptide comes in liophilized form, which should be mixed with water for injection before use, and then stored in the refrigerator for a maximum of 6 months. The forms of administration of the agent include intramuscular injection, subcutaneous injection and injection into fatty tissue. Regardless of the injection site, the substance will get into the muscle receptors just as effectively. When it comes to PEG-MGF dosage, information on the Internet is not always reliable, so it is best to talk about it, for example, with your attending physician.

It is worth adding that the PEG group is excreted entirely in the urine, and this is due to the fact that it does not bind with other substances in the body. When using the above agent, blood sugar levels should be checked from time to time, as a side effect may be a slight hypoglycemia, caused by an increase in cellular efficiency. This effect should not worry especially lovers of all kinds of desserts, and also lovers of healthy food will certainly not disdain a reason to eat an extra apple or orange.
