Humanofort is a pharmaceutically standardized and purified chicken embryo extract that contains various natural growth factors (not to be confused with growth hormones) and amino acids in a endogenous form. These growth factors are made of clusters of low-molecular weight oligopeptides, (An oligopeptide consists of between 2 and 20 amino acids and includes dipeptides, tripeptides, tetrapeptides, pentapeptides, etc.) which are quickly and easily assimilated and transported into the body to their specific receptor sites.
This oligopeptides pass intact through the gut into the blood stream, mainly by pinocytosis. This peptides are characterized as an adoptogenic 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 helps to modify the equilibrium of all the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands.
Also these peptides help to stimulate the division of mature cells and significantly help to decrease the mortality of older cells as well as assisting 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. Also, 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.
Mechanism of Action
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).
