What is Tesamorelin?

Mechano-growth factor (MGF) is an anabolic peptide found in muscle, bone, tendon, neural, and cardiac tissue following periods of increased stress. It is a split variant or isoform of insulin -like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), also known as IGF-1Ec. MGF functions to increase stem cell proliferation in given tissues, allowing for more rapid recovery.

How does Tesamorelin work?

The hypothalamus releases GHRH and stimulates the pituitary glands production of Growth Hormone (GH). As an analog of GHRH, Tesamorelin with “Trehalose” is able to stimulate the production of GH by the same mechanism. GH goes on to stimulate IGF-1 production in the liver. The resulting increased levels of GH and IGF-1 in the blood results in a variety of beneficial growth effects in tissues.
