In this industry the term game-changer has been thrown around so much so that I think people forget that health and physique enhancement isn’t really a game. Now everyone wants an edge over their competition whether it’s up on stage or the guy lifting 10 pounds more on the bench next to you.
Regardless whenever a company slaps game-changer on a product we generally raise an eyebrow. After all Silk Amino Acids were a ‘Game Changer’ at one point.
After thoroughly reviewing the ingredients on the Bio-Gro it is definitely worth talking about. However unless you can start buying Bio Active Peptides and Concentrated Colustrum in Bulk you may want to wait for the first round of reviews to come out on this one.
iSatori Bio-Gro Bio Active Peptides from Colostrum
Proline Rich Peptides- These naturally occurring peptides are found throughout the body and are the main regulators of cell protein synthesis.
IGF-1 Insulin Like Growth Factor- is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. It plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.
TGF beta-2 Transforming growth factor-beta 2- is a secreted protein known as a cytokine that performs many cellular functions and has a vital role during embryonic development.
EGF- Epidermal growth factor- is a growth factor that stimulates cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation.
PDGF- Platelet-derived growth factor- is one of the numerous growth factors, or proteins that regulate cell growth and division.
Immunoglobin G (IgG)- Immunoglobins A (IgA)- proteins with potent immune enhancing effects.
Lactoferrin- Lactoferrin belongs to the innate immune system. Apart from its main biological function, namely binding and transport of iron ions, lactoferrin also has antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitic, catalytic, anti-cancer, anti-allergic and radioprotecting functions and properties.
Fibroblast-GF- FGFs are multifunctional proteins with a wide variety of effects; they are most commonly mitogens but also have regulatory, morphological, and endocrine effects. They have been alternately referred as “promiscuous” growth factors due to their multiple actions on multiple cell types.
To be honest Colostrum and its derivatives have more of a place in overall health rather than muscle building or increasing muscle protein synthesis. The neuroprotective and Immune System enhancing benefits are undeniable. So in that regard adding this to a protein shake here and there during cold season could prove beneficial.
When it’s all said and done anything that claims increasing IGF-1 through something you take orally should be taken lightly as there is simply no evidence anything natural doing this effectively. All in all we will probably chalk this one up with MHP Myo-X in terms of what kind of results you can expect. As always we would be more than happy to be wrong on this one, but at the end of the day we have seen and tried a lot of game changers and well, were still playing the game aren’t we….
Some athletes have used colostrum in an attempt to improve their performance decrease recovery time, and prevent sickness during peak performance levels. Thus, supplementation with bovine colostrum (20 g/d) in combination with exercise training for 8 wk may increase bone-free lean body mass in active men and women.
Although IGF-1 is not absorbed intact by the body, it does stimulate the production of IGF-1 when taken as a supplement.
