    Lightbulb From Dr. Reicher: HGH and IGF-1 and penis enlargement

    Note: This is NOT an instructional post on how to inject/ingest HGH
    or IGF-1 for the purposes of enlarging your penis! This post is
    merely an informational post that MAY show how such applications MAY
    be used to treat penile "deficiencies" in the future (once more
    research has been done to establish that there are no or minimal
    side effects and that HGH/IGF-1 does actually enlarge the penis.)

    There is a lot of excitement about Human Growth Hormone. It is
    available by
    injection only and is very expensive. It turns into IGF-1 after
    injection
    and the study below shows that it GROWS cells in the Penis EnlargementNIS. There
    are plans
    to release IFG-1 for injection ... could be a new method ...

    Here is the ABSTRACT from 2001

    Insulin-like growth factor-I promotes proliferation and migration of
    cavernous smooth muscle cells.
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2001 Feb 9;280(5):1307-15 (ISSN: 0006-
    291X)
    Liu X; Lin CS; Spencer EM; Lue TF
    Knuppe Molecular Urology Laboratory, University of California, San
    Francisco, California 94143-1695, USA.
    To better understand the physiology of cavernous smooth muscle cells
    (CSMC),
    particularly their regulation by IGF-I, we isolated CSMC from rats
    of
    various ages and grew them as cell cultures. CSMC from very young (1
    week of
    age) and very old (28 months of age) rats secreted the least amounts
    of
    IGF-I, and those from 16-week-old rats the most. IGF-I stimulated
    growth of
    CSMC at an optimal concentration of 12.5 ng/ml. At this
    concentration, CSMC
    from 11-week-old rats showed the highest growth rate and CSMC from
    28-month-old rats showed the lowest. The optimal IGF-I concentration
    for
    migration of CSMC was 10 ng/ml. At this concentration, CSMC from 4-
    week-old
    rats showed the highest migratory rate and CSMC from 28-month-old
    rats
    showed the lowest. IGF-I also stimulated VEGF secretion from CSMC at
    an
    optimal concentration of 10 ng/ml. At this concentration, CSMC from
    16-week-old rats secreted VEGF the most and CSMC from 28-month-old
    rats
    secreted the least. The expression levels of IGF-IR paralleled the
    IGF-I-regulated growth rates of these cells. Expression of IGF-IR
    was
    identified in the cavernous smooth muscle and the urethra epithelium
    of the
    penis.

    IGF-1 is produced naturally.

    It is one of the hormones in the body that makes you grow.
    If it gives you cancer, then why doesn't IGF-1 give bodybuilders cancer, who are people who will have elevated levels of IGF-1?

    You obviously don't know what you're talking about... IGF does not give you cancer but it does cause hyperplasia so if you have cancer while taking it, IGF will provide an environment that will allow the cancer to flourish.

    Re: From Dr. Reicher: HGH and IGF-1 and penis enlargement

    I have read a lot on IGF-1 and most of what I read said that 15mins of very intense exercise will raise natural IGF-1 levels for most of the day. Also I have read a few times that testosterone levels are elevated to maximum after only 30-45mins of intense exercise and that longer periods of exercise actually lower testosterone levels for up to 3 days. So I would say for maximum HGH,IGF-1, and testosterone release 30-45mins a day of running or weightlifting would be the best way to gain over all benefit of those hormones.

    That may be true but the increased levels from intense exercize is nowhere near what exogenous application of IGF/test provides. The increases from exercise alone is a drop in the bucket compared to the levels that one can expect from injecting.

    Yes, but the suppliment L-Arginine will also raise it. The question is how much would L-arginine along with weight or isometric exercise (to increase testosterone) raise HGH? Excess Aerobic exercise lowers testosterone levels. L-arginine is not expensive and does not have adverse effects on the body. When I first started taking it (along with other herbs and suppliments) I could actually feel new sensations at the end of the urethra at the tip of the penis. These suppliments alone have helped to give me gains.

    Why take the chance ? You can make good gains without igf-1, with natural Penis Enlargement

    The anabolic steroid Trenbolone acetate by itself increase hepatic IGF-1 levels by 150%. All androgens increase IGF-1 levels so the same argument can be said about any androgen. The only studies that show IGF-1 linked to cancer are ones that people had existing prostate and/or breast cancer and their was increased growth. In breast cancer its logical that there is increased IGF-1 since there is also an increase in estrogen. The only other explanation is that since IGF-1 can cause hyperplasia, you have an increased chance of new cells being cancerous. But that is really random chance just like mutations and the creation and death of new cells happens regardless. There is no direct connection.

    Bottom line, don't take steroids or GH, or IGF-1 if you have cancer. You have bigger fish to fry.

    http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/...er_dhea_02.htm
    Stephen Cherniske: First of all, the widely cited association between IGF-1 and prostate cancer has been debunked.106,107 That said, the concern for tumor acceleration does make sense because IGF has angiogenic activity that would favor tumor growth. But IGF-1 has only been shown to accelerate tumor growth in test tubes. Test tubes and petri dishes do not have immune systems, which are upregulated by IGF-1. In fact, the preponderance of the evidence shows that IGF-1 does not promote cancer in any living organism, whether animal or human. Even direct injection of IGF-1 does not promote tumor growth in animals.108 In Europe, IGF-1 is routinely given to cancer patients to help them gain weight.

    Aside from this, it is important to note that increases in IGF-1 after DHEA supplementation are significant but modest, and there are no published studies in which DHEA administration caused IGF-1 to rise above the normal range. Moreover, scores of published studies demonstrate the essential role that IGF-1 plays in the repair and regeneration of the brain, skeleton, and cardiovascular and immune systems.109-112 Conversely, low IGF-1 levels have been associated with dementia, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, and sarcopenia,54,113 and a study in the journal Gerontology shows that men who maintain youthful levels of IGF-1 do not experience the decline in testosterone or muscle mass, or the accumulation of fat, that has been considered an inevitable consequence of aging.114
    There are many cancers that feed off of IGF1. Colon cancer is one such cancer. Prostate cancer, at least according to studies, is another such cancer. The IGF1 doesn't cause the cancer, it just makes it grow faster.

    Where did you find that arginine raises test??? It does not from my understanding of the compound. Arginine is a vasodilator not a testosterone booster. What it does is raise nitrous oxide levels in the body. This helps to get more blood to the tissues resulting in more intense pumps when working out and should also help get firmer erections similar to how Viagra (another vasodilator) does.

    Larginine does not raise testosterone directly...it allows for more natural HGH to be produced in the body which in turn allows less DHT to be produced and this indirectly keeps testosterone at higher levels in the body...weight/resistance exercise increases testosterone (herbs like tribulus also increases testosterone)...I was talking about two separate things...

    Arginine can but not very effective by itself. It is believed that it works better in combination with Lysine and Ornithine. Alone they do not increase GH levels from oral consumption. Ornithine does not induce GH release even intravensouly. The studies showing any GH release from individual aminos is from intravenous administration or in old men (effect not shown in young men).

    The only combination that has been shown to work with oral doses in young men during basal conditions is arginine/lysine. Although certain combo's definitely have biological activity, Arginine has been shown to inhibit the reduction of GH due to increased IGF-1 levels. In terms of growth it would be mostly indirect by reducing catabolic/proteolysis activity. It also helps with blood glucose and nutrient partioning and also increased lipolysis.
    Acute effect of amino acid ingestion and resistance exercise on plasma growth hormone concentration in young men.

    Suminski RR, Robertson RJ, Goss FL, Arslanian S, Kang J, DaSilva S, Utter AC, Metz KF.

    Human Performance Laboratory, University of Houston, TX 77204, USA.

    Sixteen men completed four trials at random as follows: (Trial A) performance of a single bout of resistance exercise preceded by placebo ingestion (vitamin C); (Trial B) ingestion of 1,500 mg L-arginine and 1,500 mg L-lysine, immediately followed by exercise as in Trial A; (Trial C) ingestion of amino acids as in Trial B and no exercise; (Trial D) placebo ingestion and no exercise. Growth hormone (GH) concentrations were higher at 30, 60, and 90 min during the exercise trials (A and B) compared with the resting trials (C and D) (p < .05). No differences were noted in [GH] between the exercise trials. [GH] was significantly elevated during resting conditions 60 min after amino acid ingestion compared with the placebo trial. It was concluded that ingestion of 1,500 mg arginine and 1,500 mg lysine immediately before resistance exercise does not alter exercise-induced changes in [GH] in young men. However, when the same amino acid mixture is ingested under basal conditions, the acute secretion of GH is increased.
    Current Medical Research & Opinion

    Vol. 7, No. 7, 1981

    A. Isidori M.D. A. Lo Monaco, M.D.& M. Cappa, M.D.
    Medical Clinic V. University of Rome, Rome, Italy. Received: 13th March 1981

    Summary

    A study was carried out in 15 male volunteers to evaluate qualitatively the secretion of growth factors following stimulation by oral amino acids. the results showed that oral administration of a combination of two amino acids (1200 mg l-lysine plus 1200 mg l-arginine pyroglutanate) provoked a release of pituitary somatotrophin & insulin. This phenomenon was reproducible & the growth hormone secreted in response to this stimulation had biological activity (as demonstrated by radiorecepter assay & somatomedin induction). The effect appeared to be specific to the combination of the two amino acids; neither of the amino acids demonstrated appreciable stimulating activity when administered alone, even at the same doses.

    There is also another intersting study in whic ARG blunted the inhibitory effect of IGF-1 on GH release

    Arginine counteracts the inhibitory effect of recombinant human insulin-like growth factor I on the somatotroph responsiveness to growth hormone-releasing hormone in humans.

    Gianotti L, Maccario M, Lanfranco F, Ramunni J, Di Vito L, Grottoli S, Muller EE, Ghigo E, Arvat E.

    Department of Internal Medicine, University of Turin, Italy.

    Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) exerts a negative feedback effect on GH secretion via either direct actions at the pituitary level or indirect ones at the hypothalamic level, through stimulation of somatostatin (SS) and/or inhibition of GHRH release. In fact, recombinant human IGF-I (rhIGF-I) in humans inhibits spontaneous GH secretion as well as the GH response to GHRH and even more to GH/GH-releasing peptides, whose main action is on the hypothalamus, antagonizing SS and enhancing GHRH activity. The aim of the present study was to further clarify in humans the mechanisms underlying IGF-I-induced inhibition of somatotroph secretion. In six normal young volunteers (all women; mean +/- SEM: age, 28.3+/-1.2 yr; body mass index, 21.3+/-1.2 kg/m2) we studied the GH response to GHRH (1 microg/kg, iv, at 0 min), both alone and combined with arginine (ARG; 0.5 g/kg, iv, from 0-30 min), which probably acts via inhibition of hypothalamic SS release, after pretreatment with rhIGF-I (20 microg/kg, sc, at -180 min) or placebo. rhIGF-I increased circulating IGF-I levels (peak at -60 vs. -180 min: 54.9+/-3.9 vs. 35.9+/-3.3 mmol/L; P < 0.05) to a reproducible extent, and these levels remained stable and within the normal range until 90 min. The mean GH concentration over 3 h (from -180 to 0 min) before ARG and/or GHRH was not modified by placebo or rhIGF-I. After placebo, the GH response to GHRH (peak, 23.6+/-2.9 microg/L) was strikingly enhanced (P < 0.05) by ARG coadministration (69.6+/-9.9 microg/L). rhIGF-I blunted the GH response to GHRH (13.1+/-4.5 microg/L; P < 0.05), whereas that to GHRH plus ARG was not modified (59.5+/-8.9 microg/L), although it occurred with some delay. Mean glucose and insulin concentrations were not modified by either placebo or rhIGF-I. In conclusion, ARG counteracts the inhibitory effect of rhIGF-I on somatotroph responsiveness to GHRH in humans. These findings suggest that the acute inhibitory effect of rhIGF-I on the GH response to GHRH takes place on the hypothalamus, possibly via enhancement of SS release, and that ARG overrides this action.

    Herbs used to raised test has been somewhat hit or miss. Some claim good results while others get nothing from them. It can't hurt to try them but i wouldn't place too much hope on them. I'd also like to add that any result from natural supps like trib, ZMA, TongKat Ali and all the other are marginal at best. If they did i fact raise test levels, i doubt that it would raise it above the upper limits of normal test level otherwise you would most likely get HPTA suppression.

    Yes if you inject hormones in your body, your body will stop producing those same hormones but depending on which hormones you inject, recovery after is very quick. IGF and HGH rebound very quickly typically within a wek or two. Testosterone can take some time to recover depending on how long your therapy was. Test suppression can be minimized and recovery accelerated by using propper post cycle therapy and HCG during the cycle.

    ...also what's the point can't you just makes gains over time and be happy with that, Why do you have to gain so fast and how do you know it works in humans for Penis Enlargement anyway?
    As Ulcasterdropout explained, the ability to accelerate gains is great as it will allow us to achieve our goals sooner than later. I'd rather have a big dick now as opposed to next year or the year after.

    We know from studies that exogenous applications of certain hormones do in fact work on certain types of human tissues. We know that testosterone WILL help to increase muscle size, we know that HGH/IGF-1 WILL decrease bodyfat and increase lean body mass, We know that mystatin anti-bodies WILL increase lean body mass, but what we're not sure of is if these same hormones/polypeptides will do the same for our penis'. That is where the study that Big Al posted comes into play. That study has shown that IGF/HGH has been effective in increasing penile tissue in mice. Yes' i know that we aren't mice but none the less this study is encouraging as we now know that it is possible to increase penis size thru hormone therapy (as alot of people have theorized). Now, it's just a matter of testing this out on humans.

    ... another interesting point about the rat study is that young rats experienced much better gains than the older rats.
