IGF-2 Review

  1. IGF-2 Review


    Applied Nutriceuticals IGF-2 Review

    Preface:
    -I began IGF-2 on day 1 of my cutting phase in hopes of strength retention while on a reduced calorie diet, aid in preservation of LBM, loose body fat at a controlled rate, and to help with sleep and overall well being. Was used in conjunction with AP (which I have used before so results were easily separated between the two.)

    -I ran 1 bottle for a total of 24 days with a dosing pattern of:
    4 pills pre-workout. 3 pills midday, and 3 pills 45 minutes before bed.

    Body Changes (Initial ---> 3 weeks after)

    Weight : 220 -----> 200.2 (-19.8 *Water and Glycogen loss attributes to this as well.)
    Body Fat %: 14%---->12% (-2%) *this is done by my idea of bf. Judge from pictures for personal thoughts.
    Waist just below navel: 38in ---> 36.5 in (-1.5 in)
    Arms: R:15.5 L:15.5 ----> R:15.25 (-.25) L:15 (-.5)
    Calves: R:15 L:15 ---> R:14.875(-.125) L: 14.5 (-.5)

    Strength/Cardio Endurance:
    -Throughout the 3 weeks I noted all lifts remained within 5% of their pre cut PRs. Although no strength was gained I was not surprised as I was not taking this product for that intention. I am very pleased with knowing abnormal strength loss (which in turn would lead me to believe LBM loss was occurring) did not occur at any point while taking IGF-2.

    -Despite some peoples success with IGF-2 and endurance/cardio benefits I personally experienced little/no benefit. I noted from the first dose that while doing empty stomach cardio I was sluggish and tired easier than normal (I am assuming this is from the gh release?)

    -However abstract from the results I saw from endurance during cardio I saw immediate benefits in recovery and endurance during strength training. Within the first week time between sets and exercises were drastically reduced. I give myself 2-3 minuets in between sets on smaller muscle groups and 3-4.5 minuets on larger muscle groups (and typically go towards the latter allotted time.) While on IGF-2 and keeping weights high I was barreling through rest times and there fore also cutting down on overall time in the gym.

    Fat Loss
    -I can't directly attribute fat loss to IGF-2 since I saw no remarkable jumps compared to previous fat loss periods without it, but LBM retention was definitely seen; namely dosing 4 caps prior to empty stomach cardio. I use to do empty stomach purely on an empty stomach and although fat loss was solid muscle loss was always in the back of my head. With IGF-2 I felt no adverse sides to emtpy stomach cardio and felt like it was almost a "armor" protecting muscle from unneeded breakdown.

    Overall Subjective Feelings
    -Drastic increase in anaerobic recovery time, but no increase/slight decrease in aerobic exercise.
    -Acne noticed on chest 7 days in, subsided by day 14.
    -Increase in nail growth as well as hair growth after 10 days remaining for the rest of the products use.
    -Much improved sleep. Within 45 minuets of taking IGF-2 before bed I was out like a light. Vivid dreams and deep RPM sleep was noted. Woke up resfreshed and ready to go every morning.
    -No mood elevation that people report while take GH/Test boosters.

    Overall Ratings:
    Strength Retention: 8.5/10
    Endurance/Recovery 8/10 (loved the lifting benefits, not a fan of cardio results)
    Sleep: 9.5/10
    Pumps/Vascularity: 7/10 (Pumps and vascularity where there, but no different than when I was taking AP solo, so I attribute vascularity and pumps to AP.)
    Product as a whole: 8.25/10

    Overall I very much enjoyed IGF-2 and its benefits. I recommend it too anyone considering trying it out and would love to see what someone could do on a purely LBM/strength gaining period.

    Agreed very solid review

    I really enjoyed your log and good detail and clear explanations. Looks like it treated you very well. I see noticeable fat loss, especially in the waist area. Glad you enjoyed it and i look forward to whatever you review in the future!

  4. Thanks Guys.

    Yea I like to explain as much as I can, or just to the point that I would want to read up on a supp if I was thinking of buying it

    Yea I really leaned up well for 3 weeks with these products. You can't see it but my shoulders leaned out a lot too but I can't get a good angle on them. I was surprised I saw any lose in the midsection (it usually is the LAST place I see it.)

    IGF-2 is a solid product and I really enjoyed it.

    Honestly bud, this was a fantastic review. Personally I think this would be the kind of review AN should use on its site to help promote IGF-2. Its unbiased, to the point, and you had solid results with it...Great job bud!

    That should be a very promising stack. I've used all of the above and have solid results.

  8. Definately a solid review brosif!!
    E-Pharm Rep... PM me with any questions or concerns

  9. good stuff!

  10. Agreed...nice review. My 8 weeks of IGF-2 was one of the best supplement experiences ever. I'd run this stuff every 2 months if I could afford it. The mental and physical benefits in all aspects were awesome. I'm surprised you didn't notice an increase in cardio....lol - I also really liked the improved sleep...and the vivid dreams!

    Thanks for the feedback, Ninja! IGF-2 is truly a compact and potent punch. Nice that you mentioned the cardio aspect. It can be overlooked sometimes due to the IGF-2-induced general improvement in markers of physical and mental well-being. Nevertheless, the cardio aspect (phosphocreatine/ATP synthesis/VO2-Max) is due to the overall synergy with Rhodiola Rosea at the core. The sleep-vivid-dream aspect is another type of synergy triggered by the L-Dopa from Mucuna Pruriens. Great remarks, Ninja

  12. Nice addition Ninja. Everyone is different when it comes to supplements so its great to add a different perspective as well for people to see.

    Strategic ~ you been mia a little? lol.

    Also I just started Lipotrpohin-PM last night. Not going to lod daily notes but will be doing an overall review following completion of the product.
