IGF-1: Fundamental for Muscle Growth

Several key growth factors and hormones control muscle development. Of these, testosterone and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) are extremely important.
Testosterone & IGF-1 Stimulate Muscle Growth
Testosterone is a steroid hormone that triggers the reading of genes coding for proteins essential for muscle development. By mechanistic contrast, IGF-1 promotes the physical elaboration of these proteins once [...]

Muscle Volumizing = Muscle Anabolism

It has been known for quite some time that cell swelling provokes a biosynthetic response. That is, giving cells an agent that makes them take up water from their surroundings (to the point where they actually inflate with water) also causes them to increase their production of new proteins as well as to retard the [...]

Insights Into Creatine Anabolics

Anabolism: The set of metabolic pathways that construct molecules from smaller units (Wikipedia).
Let me expand this rather abstract definition of anabolism to better suit our purposes.
With reference to muscle development, anabolism is the combined set of cellular and hormonal circumstances that cause muscle growth to out weigh muscle breakdown following exercise.
With reference to creatine supplementation, [...]
