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.
