How IGF-1 Boosts Your Immune System

How IGF-1 Boosts Your Immune System

Insulin-like growth factor 1, also known as IGF-1, is a hormone that offers a number of different benefits for our bodies. Athletes regularly utilize IGF-1 as it’s known to promote bone and tissue growth as well as muscle development. One of the lesser known benefits of IGF-1 is the impact it can have on our immune system. There are multiple studies that show that IGF-1 can help improve the function of our immune system. Additionally, there are a number of other hormones and supplements within IGF-1 products, like Glutathione, that have more direct effects on the immune system. In this post from the Nutronics Labs blog, we’ll discuss how IGF-1 can boost your immune system. 

IGF-1 And Your Immune System 

Scientific studies show that there is a beneficial relationship between IGF-1 and the immune system of mammals. In 1992, studies were performed on immunocompromised mice. Within this study, IGF-1 was administered to these immunocompromised mice. It was found that the introduction of the hormone to the immunocompromised mice helped enhance the reconstruction of their immune systems. Immune reconstruction, also known as immune restoration refers to the improving of the body’s immune system. This terminology is most often used when discussing HIV or AIDS, but it can be used to refer to the immune strengthening of anybody. 

Further studies in 2008 pointed to IGF-1s ability to modify several aspects of inflammation, in particular, how the body responds to the actions of cytokines. Cytokines are proteins that affect the growth of all blood cells, and help the body’s immune and inflammation responses to function. While cytokines regularly attack the infection and cause inflammation which helps healing, they can also go overboard and cause what’s known as a cytokine storm. Cytokine storms often occur in immunocompromised individuals, and they can result in your body’s immune system attacking your tissues and organs. These cytokine storms can be worst case scenarios for immunocompromised individuals, and can result in serious injury or even death. Studies performed in 2008 show that IGF-1 can increase survival in immunocompromised mice experiencing effects similar to that of a cytokine storm. While similar studies could be too dangerous to perform on humans, the current evidence points to IGF-1 having a beneficial effect on the immune system of mammals, and especially so in those that are immunocompromised. 

Glutathione And Your Immune System 

At Nutronics Labs, we proudly offer IGF-1 Plus Glutathione in our product line. Liposomal glutathione is an underappreciated and underused supplement, but it has a number of different benefits. Glutathione is composed of three amino acids: glutamic acid, glycine, and cysteine, and is also referred to as GSH. GSH is a protein that has its highest point of concentration within your liver, and assists the liver in cleansing toxins and other particulates from your system. GSH works in conjunction with the natural functions of your liver to improve its cleansing ability and boost filtration on a daily basis.

Glutathione Improves The Body’s Ability To Absorb Vitamins 

Essential vitamins that you ingest daily are also assisted by GSH. Vitamins C and E require a catalyst to ensure that your body can effectively dissolve and absorb the essential portions of these vitamins. Vitamin C is widely known to be one of the most beneficial vitamins when it comes to protecting your body from germs, bacteria, and viruses. GSH is one of the catalysts for this process, allowing your body to more efficiently break down and absorb these vitamins during digestion.
