More information on compounds

I wish someone would respond to my message concerning taking Finiplix orally! On to more important things--I have imported and
tried Long R3 IGF-1. I bought 10 mgs from the company in Australia that produces it (the only one in the world). To prepare it,
I went to the local university and used some of their equipment. I dissolved the peptide in some very, very mild acetic acid
(IGF dissolves better and is more stable in a low molar acid solution). I then aliquoted 50 mcg amounts of the IGF into
microtubes using a micropipette. I quickly put the microtubes on ice and kept them frozen in a deep-freeze freezer.
I injected the IGF solution straight (like insulin) but the solution was harsh being that it was not isotonic. I ordered some
buffered saline and right before injecting I diluted the mixture with the buffered saline--this gave a pain-free injection.
Results: I went from 178 to 195 in about 6-8 weeks. The first few weeks were the best--I felt anabolic and pumped all the time.
As time went on the effects seemed to diminish. At first, I was using only 50 mcgs every other day. At the end I was using several
hundred per day without much results. I imagine the IGFBP3 downgraded and I had little of my own IGF floating around in my
bloodstream. Also, my muscles became extremely hard--like a rock. The whole effect was different than A.S. A.S. tends to cause
body proportions to change (certain muscles gain mass over others). However, IGF-1 caused a whole body response. My proportions
looked the same at the end as the beginning--I was just bigger. I did not notice any leaning out effect as purported in the
literature. In fact, my percentage of fat slightly increased (I ate a lot due to it greatly increasing my appetite). Finally,
my libido was pretty darn high while on it. Negative aspects: none to speak of except, believe it or not, it seemed to cause
a slight bit of acne on my back--must have caused some changes in skin or sebaceous glands. It wasn't bad at all--just a few
pimples. I did not notice any rebound effect coming off the IGF-1. I remained in the 190's for quite a few months before I
went on the oral Finiplix--when I went up to over 205 pounds. I suspect a lot of the anabolic action of the IGF was due to
an insulin response or it affecting the insulin receptor in some way. Some of the growth might have been IGF type anabolicity
but I suspect much of it was through the insulin receptor. Was it worth it--yes and no--I feel A.S. work better as demonstrated
by the oral Finiplix. I spent literally hours and hours resourcing and then preparing the IGF. It worked but not where you
would say WOW. Of course, combined with other growth promoters, the IGF-1 might have been very synergistic. I used it all
by itself. I hope this information is helpful and insightful--in the future I will give my insights and experiments with
cimaterol, finasteride, ketotifin, Teslac and other interesting compounds. Question: I have easy access to Dinitrophenol--
has anyone tried this or know how to use it?
