IGF long R3
I would like specific information on the igf1longr3. How much of the water do you mix in the powder and What amount is given daily? any advice would be appreciated.
Try this from datb:
1. Divide the total mgs of the powder in the vial by the amount you want an individual dose to be. That gives you the total number of doses available per vial. So for example if you want a 100mcg dose and the vial is 5mgs:
So 5mg (5000mcg) divided by 100mcg = 50 doses per vial.
2. Now no matter how much liquid you add you will always use 1/50th of the liquid for each dose (if you want a 100mcg dose)
So if you added 100 gallons of BW to 5mg of powder your dose is going to be 2 gallons (1/50th of 100 gallons).
If you add 1ml of BW your dose will be 1/50th of 1ml which equals 2iu on a slin pin. Why 2iu? ...because 100iu is 1 CC which equals 1ml. 100iu divided by 1/50th equals 2iu.
The amount of liquid NEVER matters. It is the amount of powder that is in the liquid that matters. That is the concentration. You could have a teeny tiny bit in a 100 gallon drum of liquid OR a whole bunch in a shot glass.
If you reconstitute that 5mg vial w/ 1ml of BW then a 100mcg dose equals 2iu (1/50th of 1ml).
If instead you decide to reconstitute that 5mg vial w/ 2ml of BW then a 100mcg dose equals 4iu (1/50th of 2ml).
Remember- Google is your friend.
also depends on where you've got the IGF from & how quickly you intend to use it- some IGF needs acetic acid for reconstitution; some has AA residues left over from manufacture so saline is fine; if you have the 100mcg vials then it will probably keep for a few days in BA. Lots of confusion & different opinions on IGF reconstitution, sometimes its hard to know what to do other than trial & error. check with your source
thanks for your reply it has been very helpful. how do you know how much to adminster? I was told to use 1.5 units of the saline solution to reconstitute. use .1 units with .2 units of saline injected directly in to a muscle for up to 30 days. than take a equal amount of time off before beginning another cycle. what has been your experience? 5'10/170/41 very active.
some very good igf info, thanks Deno
