Elk Velvet Antler and Increase in Muscle Mass

IGF, EGF and amino acids play important roles in building muscle mass. Here is an overview of how each of these components contributes to muscle growth.

IGF has several mechanisms by which it promotes muscle growth. IGF enhances protein synthesis, which is the process by which cells build proteins. This leads to an increase in muscle protein content and muscle fiber growth.  Elk velvet antler contains various growth factors, such as insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β), which play a role in cartilage maintenance and regeneration.

EGF is a growth factor that plays a role in tissue regeneration and repair, which can speed up the recovery process after intense exercise or muscle damage. Faster recovery allows for more frequent and intense training, leading to better muscle growth over time. EGF stimulates blood vessel formation and this enhanced blood flow supports muscle growth and tissue repair.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and they are crucial for muscle growth and repair. Specifically, the essential amino acids (EAAs) are particularly important for stimulating muscle protein

synthesis. Amino acids provide the necessary components for repairing and rebuilding muscle tissue which is important if muscle is damaged during exercise.

While IGF, EGF, and amino acids can support muscle growth, they are most effective when combined with appropriate exercise, proper nutrition, and sufficient rest and recovery after exercise.

Individual responses to Elk Velvet Antler may vary, and it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or a qualified practitioner before starting any new supplement or treatment for joint health.  They can provide personalized guidance and help to determine if Elk Velvet Antler is suitable for your specific needs and circumstances.
