0:20 IGF-1 is insulin-like growth factor 1.
0:45 The paper states that low protein intake is associated with a major reduction in IGF1, cancer and overall mortality in ages 65 and younger.
1:43 The data set for the study is small, making relative risk appear to be worse.
2:20 Low levels of IGF-1 are as bad as having chronically elevated levels of IGF-1.
3:00 IGF-1 increases as much as 20-fold during exercise.
8:15 IGF-1 is increases are triggered by the brain.
8:45 If testing IGF-1, you may also want to test the relationship with binding protein.
10:50 Low levels of IGF-1 correlate with chronic disease.
12:30 IGF-1 is neuroprotective, through repair processes and preventing chronic neuroinflammatory processes.
12:56 IGF-1 mediates the expression and release of the protective molecule, nitric oxide.
14:30 Your protein intake should match your activity levels.
15:20 Make exercise the foundation of your life.
