What is topical IGF-1? I mention ‘topical IGF-1’ a lot when I talk about my eBook because it’s one of the key parts of my instructions. Someone emailed me the other day asking me what it is… IGF-1, or Insulin-like Growth Factor 1, is a hormone that causes growth in humans. We can use it in the scalp to stimulate hair growth. It’s difficult to get hold of the hormone but we can use the extract of velvet from deer antlers, which is high in IGF-1 to increase IGF-1 in the scalp. This is a very simple way to stimulate hair regrowth, by increasing the number of hairs per follicle from 1 to up to 5, thus increasing hair density by up to five fold. Velvet deer antler is something you can find on Amazon, eBay and loads of other websites. In my plan I speak in plain English and explain a very simple method for using IGF-1 topically to cause increased hair growth. The technique increases IGF-1 levels in your scalp and the Dermaroller causes the body to have to grow new cells to fix the damage caused by the Dermaroller. In combination, we can trigger the body to grow new hairs instead of just skin, when it heals. This is the key factor that all our research has led up to.
How does IGF-1 Cause Hair Growth?A team conducting a study at the Division of Molecular Neurobiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine discovered that the use of topical ‘IGF-1’ triggers hair regrowth in the scalp. The scientists in Cincinnati have made a significant breakthrough in the history of hair loss, which I believe is going end hair loss completely in the next five years — for people who use the treatment. I’ve taken their amazing work and developed an innovation that enables anyone to use their treatment, safely and cheaply from home. IGF-1 binds in the scalp activating receptors that trigger new hair cell growth (cell division) – effectively causing the growth of NEW hair. Additionally, the anti-apoptotic function of IGF-1 seems to prevent cell death, which may be important for preventing hairs from entering the resting phase – therefore prolonging hair growth and effectively reducing hair loss.
The growth factor is also produced in the hair follicle and promotes hair growth by proliferating keratinocytes, thereby improving alopecia. IGF-1 is decreased due to any reasons such as stress and aging, which induces hair loss. Therefore, promotion of IGF-I production by the safe method is critical for maintenance of normal hair growth and also for restoration of hair growing power in patients with alopecia.
