PEG-MGF, or Pegylated Mechano Growth Factor, is a peptide mainly used for recovery after effort. It is known for being able to repair damaged muscle tissue much better than IGF-1.
It’s also proved that PEG-MGF helps grow the satellite cells found near damaged muscle tissues that act as substitute cells in the damaged muscle. This means that PEG-MGF creates new cells close to damaged muscle tissue while helping the muscles grow. This also means that it’s possible to build new muscle tissue while repairing existing muscle.
Since PEG-MGF is a variant of IGF-1, it’s known for causing superior growth in adult muscles despite any lack of genetic predisposition. Certainly creating new muscle cells helps muscle growth by favoring increased protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. In summary, PEG-MGF is above all to help someone looking to stimulate delayed muscle growth.
Effects of PEG-MGF
- Stimulates muscle growth
- Creates new muscle fibers
- Increases muscle recovery
- Favors nitrogen retention
- Increases protein synthesis
- Long-lasting in the body, from 30 minutes to several days
It’s advised to use PEG-MGF after exercise or during rest days because IGF-1 is lower at this time and the peptide can be mainly used for recovery.
