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.
Another advantage is that PEG-MGF’s half-life is extended from half an hour to several days.
Positives 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
Negatives of PEG-MGF
- Requires injection just after workouts
- Redness in the face
- Itchy skin
Advice for PEG-MGF Usage and Cycles
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.
Due to its long life in the body, it can be injected subcutaneously in fatty areas of the body like the stomach, thighs and buttocks. It’s long life allows to stay reactive long enough to make it to the muscle receptors and continue its restoration.
The powder vials can be stored at room temperature for 1-2 months. Beyond that, they should be kept in a cool place at a temperature between 35 and 45 degree Fahrenheit. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 18 months. Once mixed, the vials should not stay at room temperature but directly stored in a cool place. It’s also suggested to only mix the vials one-by-one when they are used. It’s also recommended to either make a single injection after exercising several muscles or make two injections laterally in the body (equal doses on the right and left sides).
