Next Level Athletic Performance
The connection of colostrum and enhanced athletic performance is in part due to the growth factors IGF-1 and IGF-II naturally present in bovine colostrum. These are pro-insulin hormones that have anabolic (muscle promoting) effects. The primary function of IGF-1 and II is to promote rapid tissue growth, an important factor to athletes whose muscles have resulted in soreness due to hard training and those who rely on tissue repair for increased muscle growth. IGF-1 is associated with increased physical performance, mental performance, physical endurance, lean muscle tissue growth and wound healing and repair.
