MaxLife’s IGF-1 Plus
Revolutionary Anti-Aging Formula
Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) is the ultimate health, muscle and anti-aging Telephone: (210) 447-9651 factor. IGF-1 is made primarily in the liver in response to Human Growth Hormone (HGH) release. Unfortunately as we age we experience a relative HGH deficiency Staff Members:
due to a lowered release from the pituitary resulting in a concomitant loss of IGF-1. Alex Duarte, O.D., Ph.D. The vast number of benefits of IGF-1 centers around muscle development and Nutrition Consultant performance. IGF-1 transports glucose and amino acids into muscle while stimulating muscle DNA. This results in a muscular development in youth and muscle Ranya Alexander, Ph.D. M.D. preservation in old age. For the athlete it means peak performance and quick Endocrinologist, Biochemist recovery from intense training or injury. Other tissues of the body benefit from IGF-1 because of the affect on DNA and RNA (Ribonucleic Acid and Deoxyribonucleic Acid V. James DeFranco, M.D. - are nucleic acids that are an essential part of every living cell). This tends to Medical Diversified stimulate a faster production of proteins such as enzymes that help conduct normal International
metabolism. Rick Lentini, Ph.D Vice President/Product One of the most important functions of IGF-1 is the improvement in blood sugar Development utilization. IGF-1 improves insulin receptor sensitivity. This means insulin has an easier time getting blood sugar into the cells where it can be utilized for energy Joel Sauceda-CEO production. This may improve blood sugar levels in people with abnormally elevated blood sugar. This also has been shown to help preserve muscle tissue in animals Sonny Melendrez that were given Prednisone. Prednisone desensitizes insulin receptor sites, which are President
overcome by IGF-1.
Brad Harris - Chief Financial Officer One of the most exciting discoveries about IGF-1 is its ability to stimulate repair of damaged nerves. In culture tubes containing spinal cord motor neurons, IGF-1 111 Soledad Ste. 825 stimulated a 150% to 270% increase in activity. In animal studies IGF-1 repaired and San Antonio, TX. 78205 reconnected nerve endings up to a distance of six millimeters. This is astounding when one realizes that severe nerve damage of more than one inch may result in For More Information permanent damage. In other animal studies IGF-1 increased intramuscular nerve Visit Our Website at: sprouting tenfold. www.MaxLifeResearch.com
IGF-1 also has a profound effect on the heart muscle. In a randomized, double blind human study IGF-1 stimulated a significant increase in strength and efficiency of
heart function. These people had severely damaged hearts but still realized an increase in blood volume pumped through the heart. IGF-1 also helps preserve cardiac function in normal, healthy people as well.
For those interested in achieving lean body mass, IGF-1 is the supplement
of choice. IGF-1 shifts fuel utilization from carbohydrates (sugar and starch to
fat-stores in the body. Thus, your body will burn more fat regardless of what kind of
weight-loss or exercise program you are on. When people try to loose weight they
loose muscle as well as fat but with IGF-1 muscle tissue is preserved while fat is
preferentially lost. Additional metabolic benefits of IGF-1 include:
? White blood cell production including T Lymphocytes and B Lymphocytes
which kill microbes and produce antibodies.
? Restoration of immune supporting lymphoid tissue.
? An increase of the uptake and degradation of the dangerous LDL cholesterol
by macrophages (a type of white blood cell).
? Helps to preserve healthy bone density by improving Parathyroid/Vitamin D
interaction and reducing urinary hydroxyproline excretion.
? IGF-1 may be one the most important anti-aging compounds ever studied.
IGF-1 initiates the transport of nucleic acids into the nucleus of the cell where
the DNA resides. It provides these raw materials for the DNA to repair itself
and it helps initiate cell division. Telephone: (210) 447-9651 ? Thus, IGF-1 actually helps the repair of the blueprint of life. When DNA is kept in a state of good repair it is better able to resist carcinogenic toxins, Staff Members: viruses and radiation

Telephone: (210) 447-9651 CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE is a problem of epidemic proportions. About 960,000 Staff Members: Americans die of this disease every year, representing more than 40 % of all deaths. Its prevelance, morbidity, and mortaliry have encourages millions of Americans to seek prevention Alex Duarte, O.D., Ph.D. and treatment by focusing on the modification of known cardiovascular risk factors. We now Nutrition Consultant know that some of these risk factors can be modified by the utilization of micro-nutrients and antioxidants.

Endocrinologist, Biochemist VITAMIN B3: (as niacinamide), chemically this is one of the co-enzyme forms of the vitamin V. James DeFranco, M.D. known as niacin. The coenzyme forms of this vitamin are involved in more than fifty metabolic Medical Diversified reactions in the body especially those that provide energy to the cells. They metabolize a International number of drugs and toxicants and are involved in a number of other biochemical tasks within the cell. One of the more important tasks is to inhibit pro-inflammatory interleukin-1 (1). It is Rick Lentini, Ph.D en established fact that inflammation is at the heart of most degenerative disease. Vice President/Product Development RED YEAST RICE: There are thousands of different strains of yeast (which, surprisingly, are a type of fungus related to mushrooms). In addition to the economically important varieties, Joel Sauceda-CEO such as brewer’s yeast and baker’s yeast, one species in particular has important medicinal value and has been used safely in China for centuries. A Purple-colored yeast (Monascus Sonny Melendrez purpureus) grows on rice and gives it a red color when the rice ferments. The resulting President product, appropriately called “red yeast rice”, is used in the Orient as a food, therapeutic agent and for food-coloring. At the University of California’s Center for Human Nutrition in Los Brad Harris - Chief Financial Angeles, a recent review of various herbs with cholesterol-lowering abilities confirmed the Officer value of re yeast rice with natural antioxidant properties (2). Red yeast rice contains a compound called lovastatin as well as a number of related compounds such as simvastatin, 111 Soledad Ste. 825 mevastatin, pravastatin, atorvastatin, and fluvastatin, all of which are in a class of compunds San Antonio, TX. 78205 called statins. These compounds are highly effective in reducing blood cholesterol levels and are, in fact, the basis for several pharmaceutical drugs. Statins lower blood cholesterol by For More Information inhibiting an important enzyme called “hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase” that is Visit Our Website at: required for the synthesis of cholesterol in the liver. This protein (all enzymes are proteins) www.MaxLifeResearch.com usually goes by the simpler name HMG-CoA reductase. If your cholesterol level is too high, inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase is a good thing to do. The scientific literature shows that red yeast rice, with its low-to-no toxicity profile, is similar to the prescription drug lovastatin in its cholesterol-reducing effects (3). Recent research also indicates that statin therapy can reduce
the level of another protein, called C-reactive protein, with consequences that may lower the risk of several additional types of coronary events (4). Because red yeast rice is a natural product, it is a much more complex mixture of compounds than the synthetic pharmaceutical
drugs such as lovastatin. While red yeast rice contains lovastatin, it also contains eight other
statins, all with the ability to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase (5). It should come as no surprise,
therefore, that scientific studies have demonstrated that red yeast rice extracts significantly
reduce LDL levels. One of these studies was conducted at UCLS and showed that red yeast
rice extract (2.4 g/day) lowered total cholesterol by 16% after 12 weeks of treatment. The
health benefits or red yeast rice are further enhanced by the presence of certain isoflavones
(cholesterol-lowering compounds found in soy products) and phytosterols (compounds that
inhibit cholesterol absorption in the digestive tract). Because of the popular use of “statin”
drugs (Zocor?, Lipitor?, Pravachol?, Lescol?, and Mevacor?) it is important to emphasize
that all statins (natural and synthetic) act by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase, the rate-limiting
enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis. Inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase activity decreases CoQ10
levels (6) because HMG-CoA reductase is required for CoQ10 synthesis. Therefore,
individuals using statins must increase their intake of CoQ10 to negate this decrease in CoQ10
