This makes this hormone one of the best growth hormones and a facilitator of general cell growth which it does by targeting different specific tissues and in more autocrine cell communication processes, it facilitates cell division. Some Benefits of the Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 and some of the reasons why it has substantial advantages include:
