How Does Rewind IGF-1 Work?

Rewind IGF-1 will dramatically support health, vitality and quality of life, using a naturally occurring IGF-1 formula.

It is a little known fact that the reason people are experiencing most of the symptoms of aging is due to their decreased levels of hormones. Pretty much from the age of 30 onwards every hormone in our body starts to close down. Its sounds depressing but the good news is we now know, because of extensive science-based research just how to switch these hormones back on again.

The secret to Rewind is the high dosage of naturally occurring IGF-1 extracted from New Zealand Red Stags using a unique proprietary process that leaves the delicate structure intact (and the Stags unharmed).  IGF-1 is created naturally in your body and is produced as a result of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) being triggered. Research suggests most of the feel good look good benefits of HGH come when it actually converts to IGF-1.  The Hollywood stars and well-to-do have been paying thousands for HGH therapy. Not only is it way out of most people’s price league but now with the discovery that IGF-1 is actually the magic behind this hormone’s healing and rejuvenating properties there is no need to take Human Growth Hormone (which, some say, has some negative associations with it).  The naturally sourced IGF-1 in Rewind gives all the good, none of the bad, is priced affordably and is a yummy tasting sub-lingual lozenge – no need for nasty, painful injections!

When IGF-1 is released in the blood stream it also sends a global message to other hormones in your body to be released. If your IGF-1 level is increased to that of a youthful person your other hormones will also increase to match it, hence why some have dubbed it the ‘Master Hormone’. Celebrities and Elite Athletes alike have known for some time that the answer is IGF-1. Using IGF-1 they are managing their weight and appear to have the energy levels of someone 20 years younger. But not just ‘Vigor in a bottle’ IGF-1 research suggests it can also support your immune system and heart health as well as maintain bone mobility and density. You’ll look younger, feel stronger and have the energy to do the things you used to enjoy when you were young.

According to Dr Giampapa and Thierry Hertoghe, MD, a physician specialising in hormone replacement therapy in Brussels, the latest European research shows that human growth hormone and IGF-1 can go further than antioxidants and can do what antioxidants cannot. Human growth hormone and IGF-1 act like carriers to bring the cell the raw materials it needs for renovation and repair. IGF-1 launches delivery of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA, right into the cell nucleus, where the DNA resides. The nucleic acids are used to repair damage to the DNA and stimulate cell division. Growth hormone initiates the transport of amino acids, the building blocks of protein, and nucleic acids into the cytoplasm of the cell, the area outside the nucleus. This includes the cell membranes and intracellular organelles, such as mitochondria.   In this way, human growth hormone and IGF-1 don’t just minimize the damage to the DNA and cellular structures, they help heal the cell and the DNA. These two hormones actually treat the blueprints of aging.


Anti-oxidants – The Real Truth

What I’m about to say will not be very popular, the truth often is not but use your intelligence and make up your own mind before you spend more money on anti-oxidants.

For 50 years, it’s been thought that oxidative stress was a leading cause of chronic disease and aging. Oxidative stress, it was said, occurs when “superoxide” free radicals — toxic oxygen molecules produced by normal body processes but also via external sources like stress and pollution — spiral out of control and cause molecular damage.

Countless anti-aging products and diets have been created based on the theory of oxidative stress — and the notion that antioxidants could counteract some of the damage.

Now researchers at the Institute of Healthy aging at UCL (University College London) have found that the theory may not be right after all.

“It Just Doesn’t Stand Up to the Evidence”

In the study, published in the journal Genes & Development, Dr. David Gems and colleagues manipulated certain genes in worms in order to control their ability to “mop up” surplus superoxide free radicals and limit damage caused by oxidation. They found that the lifespan of the worms was relatively unaffected by their ability to get rid of free radicals.

“The fact is that we don’t understand much about the fundamental mechanisms of aging,” Dr. Gems said in Science Daily. “The free radical theory of aging has filled a knowledge vacuum for over 50 years now, but it just doesn’t stand up to the evidence.”

The implication is, then, that if oxidative stress is not a major cause of aging, then antioxidants would not play a major role in preventing the aging process.

“A healthy, balanced diet is very important for reducing the risk of developing many diseases associated with old age, such as cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis,” Dr. Gems told Science Daily. “But there is no clear evidence that dietary antioxidants can slow or prevent aging. There is even less evidence to support the claims of most anti-aging products.”

If free radicals don’t play a role, then what IS the cause of aging?

“One of the hallmarks of aging is the accumulation of molecular damage, but what causes this damage?” says Dr. Gems. “It’s clear that if superoxide is involved, it only plays a small part in the story. Oxidative damage is clearly not a universal, major driver of the aging process. It is pretty well accepted among the scientific community that the mechanism that drives aging is telomere shortening. At the ends of our DNA are repeating sequences of redundant nucleotides called telomeres, every time our cells divide these strands shorten until finally they are too shorts to maintain the chromosome and the cell senses and dies. While we don’t have a cure for aging, we’re working on it!  In the mean time we do know that supporting healthy hormone levels is useful in the natural aging process.

Think about it. It doesn’t make any sense at all oxidative stress is caused by oxygen so it would logically follow that the more oxygen we use up the faster we would age, right? Is that right? Do we see that athletes tend to age faster than everyone else? Of course not, in fact the opposite seems truer. Would the healthiest thing we could possibly do be to just sit around not breathing much? Maybe if we cut our oxygen even more by smoking? Surely using the oxidative stress model of aging that would add years to our lives wouldn’t it? And if we could manipulate the speed at which we age by something as variable as our levels of anti-oxidants then surely there would be a huge difference in the rate that people age but the fact is there simply is not.

The reason this ridiculous theory emerged in the first place is that all the experiments done on oxidative stress were, like most science, done on mice, now mice don’t have the inbuilt ability to deal with free radicles that humans possess and in humans our ability to deal with free radicles increases with exercise which is why we get healthier rather than unhealthier when we exercise, make sense? Back to the poor mice, almost all mice eventually die from cancer caused by free radicles due to oxidative stress so it makes a lot of sense to make sure that your diet is full of antioxidants and to take a good anti-oxidant supplement daily. IF YOU ARE A MOUSE! If not do some exercise and save your money for something that might actually have some benefit.
