Below are listed the homeopathic ingredients and components found in ProBLEN HGH Plus IGF-1 & IGF-2 with a description of each. Some are components found in the deer antler velvet.
Human Growth Hormone (Somatropin): a synthetic hormone prepared by recombinant means and having the same 191 amino acid sequence as the hormone made naturally by the body, which is called Somatotropin. HGH is a major polypeptide hormone that is secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland; promotes the growth of healthy new cells by stimulating the release of somatomedin (IGF-1 and IGF-2), influences the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. Known as the hormone of youth.
IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1, Somatomedin C): the most important growth factor of human growth hormone. It is 10 times more potent than HGH, and it is actually IGF-1 that gives us most of the benefits associated with HGH. IGF-1 is found in most every cell of the body, it regulates cell growth and proliferation, promotes cell differentiation, enhances cell specialization, and stimulates glucose transport and amino acid uptake.
IGF-2 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-2, Somatomedin A): another important growth factor of HGH. A mitogen for many cell types and an important modulator of growth and differentiation, essential for maintaining organs such as the brain/nervous system, liver and kidneys. IGF-2 is vital to the repair and maintenance of nerve cells.
EPO (Erythropoietin): a glycoprotein hormone that is a growth factor for red blood cell (erythrocyte) precursors in the bone marrow. EPO is a red blood cell growth stimulant, it stimulates stem cells to increase production of erythrocytes. EPO is being used to treat various conditions such as anemia. Athletes and bodybuilders also use EPO to increase the amount of oxygen carried to muscles, organs and tissues of the body thus improving performance and increasing strength and stamina.
LH Stimulator (Luteinizing Hormone): a hormone synthesized and secreted by gonadotropes in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. It is one of the gonadotropins that is necessary for proper sexual function and reproduction. LH stimulator stimulates the production of Luteinizing hormone (LH). In men LH acts on Leydig cells of the testes to increase testosterone synthesis and release and increases interstitial cell development, in women LH promotes the transformation of the graafian follicle into the corpus luteum, an endocrine gland that secretes progesterone.
TGF (Transforming Growth Factor): is being seen as a significant growth factor in reversing the effects of aging. TGF is an ubiquitous growth factor implicated in the control, migration, differentiation and survival of many different cell types. TGF regulates cell proliferation activated by other growth factors or hormones. It aids in the differentiation of cells, inhibits unspecialized cell proliferation such as occurs in tumors, stimulates significant collagen and elastin production, aids in tissue repair, skin cell formation, immune function, and regulation of inflammatory conditions. TGF has also been shown to affect libido and mood.
BMP-4 (Bone Morphogenetic Protein 4): bone-growth regulatory factors that are members of the transforming growth factor-beta super family of proteins. BMP-4's induce bone and cartilage formation, are being used in spinal fusions and for Osteoporosis.
FGF-8 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 8): an androgen induced growth factor that provides broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, involved in a variety of biological processes such as hematopoiesis and tissue remodeling and maintenance. FGF's are potent physiological regulators of growth and differentiation for a variety of cells of mesodermal, ectodermal, and endodermal origin, they are involved in normal development, wound healing and repair, angiogenesis, and a variety of neurotrophic activities. They help nourish the peripheral and central nervous system nerve cells and are essential for the development of the skeletal and nervous systems.
EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor): a growth factor that plays a role in normal cell growth; promotes the proliferation and differentiation of mesenchymal and epithelial cells. EGF accelerates cell growth for wound healing, and has negative growth effects on certain carcinomas.
NTF-3 (Neurotrophin-3): a target-derived growth factor that neurons of the dorsal root ganglia require for survival. NTF-3 promotes the differentiation of muscle spindle afferents in the absence of peripheral targets. NTF-3 stimulates the growth of nerve fibers and is being used to treat spinal cord injuries.
Spermine: a polyamine involved in cellular metabolism found in all eukaryotic cells. Formed from spermidine, it is found in a wide variety of organisms and tissues, associated with nucleic acids and is thought to stabilize helical structure.
