MGF is available as an injectable peptide, and it has been anecdotally shown that injecting it will cause a response in the area resulting in localized muscle growth.
It would also appear that with regards to age, the young have a better ability to respond to MGF (4), and that the elderly experience a decreased response to MGF which results in a decreased ability to stimulate the growth of new muscle tissue.
It is actually originally called MGF because the RNA form of it is expressed in muscle tissues in response to the overload or/and damage. The C-terminal peptide of the mechano factor (MGF) is a crucial region for the alternative splicing of the peptide. The alternative splicing in the MGF is brought about by the shift in the reading frame in which a specific C-terminal sequence (E-domain) is econded by exon 5 and the first part of the exon 6. Another interesting point in MGF is that, because of the E domain it contains, MGF can act on muscles independently from the rest of the molecule.
Product Name: MGF
MGF Synonyms: PEG MGF
MGF MF: C121H200N42O39
MGF MW: 2867.2
MGF Assay: 99% min
MGF Appearance: White powder
MGF Storage: Lyophilized peptides although stable at room temperature for 3 months, should be stored desiccated below -18° C. Upon reconstitution of the peptide it should be stored at 4° C between 2-21 days and for future use below -18° C.
After you have broken down muscle tissue (post training), you can use the peptide PEG MGF and reap the benefit of its response to damaged muscle tissue. In addition, it will help you signal growth in nearby undamaged muscled cells. This gives it the unique ability to grow lagging body parts in areas where muscle growth is desired. Doses and Usage Using PEG MGF on cycle or off cycle, you are going to experience recovery that is far superior to any generic peptide available. Just like normal peptides, remember that PEG MGF comes in the form of a white delicate powder that needs to be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water and kept in the refrigerator.
I have personally ran PEG MGF and administered into the quad regions after very long sessions where my quads were ripped to shreds. The recovery time and muscle growth in those areas was noticed after one week of use. Duly noted was the recovery time after a 100+ mile ride. On the recovery day, I administered 200mcg of PEG MGF and rested. The following day muscles felt recovered and soreness was not present for the next training ride. An insulin syringe needs to be used to inject subcutaneously or intramuscularly with a dose around 200-400mcg. Bilateral dosing can be used.
How much MGF should be used ?
A typical protocol would be:
100-300mcg of MGF divided into 1-2 bilateral administrations in 2-5 different areas of the muscles approximately 5-7 days a week - intramuscular injections.
Example, if you want to administer 200mcg of MGF into the chest and biceps muscles 2 times a day and 3 different areas of the muscle then you would need to divided the dose as follows:
200mcg / 2 times per day = 100mcg per administration
100mcg per administration / 4 muscles (2 chest and 2 bicep muscles) = 25mcg per muscle
25mcg per muscle / 3 different locations on each muscle = 8.3mcg per injection
Theoreticall, the more locations used to administer the MGF into the muscle the more places for muscle growth.
How to reconstitute MGF ?
MGF is typically manufactured in 2mg amounts and is reconstituted with sterile water.
If 2ml (2 full - 1 ml U-100 insulin syringe) of sterile water is added to the vial then each unit of the syringe will equal 10mcg.
If the syringe is filled up to 10 units (up to the number 10 on the syringe) it will equal 100mcg of MGF.
How long should MGF be used ?
In most studies on MGF no adverse side effects were reported with use for 4-8 weeks (per the dosage limits in the above answer) followed by 4 weeks of non-use.
