    Rolling with IGF-2


    Applied Nutriceuticals IGF-2



    Overview:

    Product Overview:
    The compounds contained in IGF-2™ stimulate a variety of complex reactions and messenger systems in the body, most notably through direct gene activation and the second messenger system. Safed Musli, Mucuna Pruriens, and Dodder Seed all have been shown to increase testosterone production in the body via a number of different mechanisms.


    FAQ

    Q: When is the best time to take IGF-2?

    A: Take first dose on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, 45 minutes before a meal. On non-workout days, take second dose in same fashion. On workout days, take second dose 45 minutes before workout, on an empty stomach. Take third dose on an empty stomach 45 minutes before bed time for maximal effectiveness.

    Q: How long will it take me to notice the positive anabolic benefits from IGF-2?

    A: You will begin to feel the testosterone and growth hormone increases from IGF-2 about 7-10 days after beginning the product, at which point you will notice measurable increases in strength and size. By the end of the third week, you’ll be feeling the full effects of this amazing product with ever-increasing gains in strength, size and density.

    Q: What makes IGF-2 different from other anabolics on the market?

    A: Not to be cynical, but this one actually works. We are proud that this product delivers exactly what we claim it to. The specifically titrated ratios of the compounds in IGF-2 trigger enormous increases in growth hormone and testosterone production, while serving a critical anti-catabolic function as well. Users of IGF-2 generally report lean body mass gains of 5-7 lbs. over an 8 week cycle, with even greater gains being reported when stacked with NeoVar, our advanced creatine product.

    Q: How does IGF-2 boost testosterone levels, and how does testosterone grow more muscle?

    A: The safed musli componet of IGF-2 contains large amounts of spirosta-steroidal saponins (desoxydiosgenin, tigogenin and neotigogenin) which are intermediates to various hormonal pathways in the body. When ingested, desoxydiosgenin from the safed musli is enzymatically converted to 11-oxa-5 alpha-androstane-3,17-dione, a portion of which is converted to testosterone through the testes. The testosterone produced binds to the androgen receptor, which signals the muscles via mRNA to increase protein synthesis, increased nitrogen retention and muscle cell hypertrophy; leading to greater strength, mass, and recovery.

    Q: How does the L-Dopa in IGF-2 help with testosterone production and growth hormone secretion?

    A: The variety of mucuna pruriens used in IGF-2™ is standardized to 25% L-Dopa, delivering large amounts of this active ingredient per capsule. Two important mechanisms of action of L-Dopa is increased growth hormone (GH) release, and increased testosterone secretion through prolactin inhibition. Prolactin is a hormone that regulates testosterone production, and too much of it can hinder testosterone production. By inhibiting prolactin, IGF-2 increases endogenous testosterone levels dramatically. L-Dopa is a precursor to Dopamine, a potent GH and testosterone agonist, meaning that dopamine inhibits prolactin release and somatostatin secretion in the hypothalamus, which allows for a greater stimulatory effect of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) and secretion of testosterone by the testes. GHRH signals the pituitary to release GH, which is produced by the pituitary gland. GH is an important anabolic hormone that stimulates skeletal muscle cells to grow and, in some cases, divide. Acting directly, GH also mobilizes fats from fat depots and decreases the rate of glucose intake and metabolism.


    Q: What anabolic and energy-enhancing actions does rhodiola rosea have?

    A: Rhodiola rosea has been shown to increase ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) production in the mitochondria of the cell. ATP is an energy molecule that allows for muscle contraction to occur. In a university study, mice were administered rhodiola and made to swim to exhaustion twice a day for six days. At the end of the testing period, muscle biopsies were performed, with the rhodiola-treated mice having 17% greater ATP levels, 45% greater creatine phosphate stores, and 53% greater muscle glycogen levels, along with lowered intramuscular concentrations of lactic acid and ammonia. What this means to you is stronger muscle contraction, allowing for improved energy and stamina.

    In human studies, the rosavin and salidroside found in rhodiola rosea have also been shown to have significant effects on stress reduction. This is accomplished by reducing cortisol release, while optimizing levels of key brain chemicals involved in mood, such as serotonin and dopamine, which function together to maintain a healthy response to stress. Blocking cortisol is important, as cortisol tends to break down muscle tissue, increase body fat stores, slows the metabolism and lowers immune function. Rhodiola has been shown to have adaptogenic qualities, meaning that it allows humans to work harder during stress, while at the same time maintaining higher energy reserves.

    Bulk BCAA

    Main Supplement Dosage Protocol:

    Day 1-14 IGF-2
    Day 15-Onwards IGF-2 and RPM


    Goal:

    I'm trying to shed some fat in this log after a 6 month bulk in which I've gained a little bit too much fat. One of the biggest problems with a cut for me for has been a loss of libido and strength. With the IGF-2, I want to get stronger during this log and maybe even add some muscle. I'm only cutting 300 calories off maintenance and losing the rest through cardio. Cardio will be consistent and trying to get in 4-5 days a week.
    I want to try to drop 1.5 lbs a week. If that could happen, I would love to drop 9 lbs over the course of 6 weeks, and increase my strength...any bonus lbm would be icing on the cake

    And finnaly, I would like to thank AN for sponsoring this log and allowing me to test IGF-2!

    Good workout, good intensity. Strength is still rising and hasn't slowed down yet.

    Can’t really say much...just started up on the IGF-2. It's supposed to take 7 days for effects to start hitting. Got to say, I love AN's pills. The IGF-2 are a cool looking white and blue pills and the RPM are a really awesome looking shiny red. (Won't start RPM for another 2 weeks)

    No, I have not unfortunately.

    MY previous supplements include a bunch of different creatines, bcaa products, x-factor, activate, and e-bol.

    Yeah, man, I really want to focus on my back more. It's my weakest and most underdeveloped body part. On my next bulk, I'm going to try to dedicate an extra day to the back.

    When I played football, the coaches never stressed working out our back, and I wasn't really introduced to bodybuilding at that time. Coaches stressed lots and lots of power cleans, squats, and bench. Hell, really those were all I needed back then...power cleans are amazing in football. But, now, I'm just going to bust my ass to get the "back" back where it should be.

    And I appreciate it for everyone following along...always good for the motivation!

    What position did you play?

    I love cleans- they help a TON with track and football b/c they teach you how to generate force through correct body position.....

    I played outside linebacker and tightend. I wasn't much of a tight end with my brick hands and would only come in during our two tight end sets for blocking. But, wow, there was nothing better than playing linebacker.

    Yeah, man, the cleans were the best in quickness, speed, and gaining the extra explosion for tackling.

    I love cleans, and snatches (both kinds!). I was also a tightend, unfortunatly I never got to play because my coach would not p[lay me because I was a fat kid in HS, he said if I ever came in first for the 10 laps we had to do pre-practice he would start me. I was always last

    I know...a leg workout without squats..blasphemy. I tweaked my hip flexor 2 weeks ago, and I don't want to aggravate it by doing heavy weights with squats or front squats. I'm sticking to the heavy weight on the leg press for the time being.

    Haven't noticed anything of the ordinary while being on IGF-2. Yes, it is day 2, but I'm just noting the effects of my body for the log. Sleep has been the same, and libido has been the same. I was unusually extremely sore in my chest, but the DOMS subsided after a couple hours of waking up.

    Damn, 10 laps before practice? Was that around the football field...because damn, jogging somewhere around 2 miles before football practice would be terrible.

    ahs4n,

    Sorry for being so late to the party! I'm excited to follow this log. Ask here or PM me if you have any issues or questions that I could help out with

    I'll tell you what man, you and I have a very similar build..... and I had the back development problems as well. It took me a couple years of hard work and focus.... but I've recovered somewhat nicely I'll try to get pics up somewhere for you to see what I mean.

    Suggestion: Superset some pullups with wide grip deadlifts.

    Undercover back mass-builder combo.

    started out at tight end- moved to receiver- I like flanker more than slot- more of a one on one game out there, rather than having to pick through zones off the slot

    Yeah, being a tightend, I liked my simple routes. Either a flag, drag, post, or just settling down for a screen pass

    Everything is still going great. DOMS has been unusually more sore than I usually experience. Not complaining because DOMS is always a good feeling in my book.

    Sleep, mood, libido has all been the same.

    I'll do some cardio tonight. I haven't been posting the cardio because it's not really a routine...just sporadic whenever I get it done. Sometimes 45 min walk in the mornings, sometimes a quick 25 min jog, or even some hiit. I'll start including them in my daily postings if anyone wants it, though.

    Pretty good intense workout. Strength is still going up even with the weight dropping. I ran out of Green Mag, so I'm using 5 g creatine mono in my PWO shake.

    Anyway, DOMS is still been the same increased soreness the last couple of days. Really sore when I wake up and then it goes away. Libido and mood has been the same.

    Sleep was amazing last night. I went a straight 9 and half hours without even waking up to go to the bathroom. I believe the IGF-2 is kicking in now.

    few more days and the strength gains will kick in! How's the libido? I get extra hard, and extra horny on IGF-2.

    Ehh, so far I haven't noticed anything different in that department.

    But, I am moving back to college on Sunday...so lol, I'll be able to report on how the libido has been. The ex wants to come over to my new apartment and "sleep over."

    Sorry for the lack of updates...I've been moving to my college apartment...and I couldn't exactly have my diet spot on. I don't workout on the weekends anyway....but I feel worn out from moving desks, sofas, tvs, chairs from my house and then up 3 cases of stairs in an apartment. I might have to skip my workout today because my entire body is sore from head to toe, and I really need a rest day.

    Haven't really felt anything different the past couple of days. My diet hasn't been perfect but I have been doing so much work that I could afford to cheat.

    I took today off, and I'm going to head strong into the gym tomorrow.

    Side effect wise, everything has been normal...even the sleep(no insane dreams or deep sleep the past couple of days). Basically, I haven't had any sides at all.

    Great workout. I was back in my gym at the college rec center. It felt awesome being back and having the machines that I'm used to. Also, felt great hitting the squats, front and hack squats. Overall great workout.

    Side effect wise...not libido or mood differences. But, I had a much better sleep tonight. It was deep and I didn't wake up at all and got a great 9 hours. This was much different then the past couple of days.

    Also, I really feel that I'm looking leaner. I know I promised measurements, but I've been real busy with school, having to get books, and dealing with fraternity stuff. I'll def get measurements this weekend and try my hardest for pictures.

    DOMS was pretty intense today. I'm still sore today.

    Sleep was nice and deep and I'm finally feeling the increase in the libido now.

    Also, I'd like to note that I'm doing different machines in college which is why my lat pulls and close grips were lower. I'm actually getting stronger while on a calorie deficit. I got some extra reps on the dumbbell curls. I know its not much...but I always get weaker on a cut...and this is good!
