Humanofort contains natural endogenous pep-tides and growth factors. This includes; IGF-1, IGF-2, FGF (fibroblast growth factors), EGF (epidermal growth factors), CTGF (connective tissue growth factors), Follistatin and Thymosin B4.

The natural growth factors in HUMANOFORT are low molecular weight oligopeptides (amino acids), which are quickly and easily assimilated and transported through the bloodstream to their specific receptor sites.

Humanofort`s extract containing naturally occurring growth factors (not to be confused with growth hormones), pass intact through the gut into the blood stream, mainly by pinocytosis.

Pinocytosis [pin″o-si-to´sis]

a mechanism by which cells ingest extracellular fluid and its contents; it involves the formation of invaginations by the cell membrane, which close and break off to form fluid-filled vacuoles in the cytoplasm (see accompanying illustration). adj., adj pinocytot´ic   

This peptides are characterized as an adaptogenic on (i.e a product that helps to modify the equilibrium of hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex). This adoptogenic activity is a consequence of fine-tuning exerted by the growth factors from the standardized oligopeptides extract on the adrenal cortex. Due its mechanism of action (regulation by the growth factors in a paracrine manner of adrenal cortex activity) the growth factors from the oligopeptides supports to modify the equilibrium of all the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands.

Also these peptides supports to stimulate the division of mature cells and significantly supports to decrease the mortality of older cells, and assist the body in normalizing numerous cellular processes by activating the fibroblast growth factor receptors. When this occurs, healing is accelerated and a variety of cellular processes are normalized/ stabilized.

Humanofort helps bring balance to the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis. This assists the entire endocrine system in achieving homeostasis and efficient operation. Next, the endocrine system secretes hormones at optimum levels resulting in improved cellular signaling. Improved cellular signaling results in cellular rejuvenation and ultimately translates to optimal health longevity and restoration of youthful vitality to the body.

These peptides have a demonstrated adaptogenic effect and act at

TWO levels:

1) Normalize the adrenal cortex activity (androgens, gluco-corticoids, and mineral-corticoids); and
2) At the cellular/tissue level, exert cyto-stimulating, cyto-protective and anti-oxidative properties).
