The Top 5 Ways to Increase Your Growth Hormone
Last year, we reported about an Al-Jazeera documentary that accused several American sports stars of using growth hormone, or HGH. The most prominent figure among those accused, Peyton Manning has denied the charges, and has since been cleared by the NFL of any wrong doing.
There are two things to take away from these most recent stories of athletes and the use of growth hormone. One, of course, it is good to know that these accusations are false, and these highly-paid and well-known athletes are not “cheating” by using HGH.
More importantly, the idea that professional sports prohibits the use of HGH, speaks volumes about what it can do to boost performance.
The reason growth hormone is barred from professional sports is because of its known abilities to increase strength, stamina, and endurance.
In a professional athlete, HGH can give an unfair advantage over his or her competition, but for you, it can give you a much needed advantage over aging!
5 Ways to Boost Your Growth Hormone
- 1) High Intensity Exercise – All exercise is good for you. But, certain types of exercise are known to increase your body’s production of HGH, specifically high intensity workouts. Researchers have found that even as little as 10 minutes of high intensity exercise significantly increased the serum levels of HGH.
- Cardio, weight training, and High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) are some of the best exercises to boost HGH levels. High intensity training has the added value of also increasing your testosterone levels.
- 2) The Right Amount of Sleep – Sleep and HGH levels are intimately related. It has been found that HGH production occurs during your periods of deepest, or “REM,” sleep. Many of us do not get enough sleep, or enough restful sleep to maximize our own HGH production. Eight hours of sleep a night is recommended for optimal results.
- 3) Vitamin Supplementation – There are certain vitamins and minerals that can increase growth hormone production. Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin is one such vitamin. Other vitamins and minerals that can improve growth hormone release and production include: melatonin, Vitamin D, and the amino acids L-arginine and L-lysine.
- 4) Diet – Eating a healthy diet can increase HGH levels. Intermittent fasting has also been shown to increase the production of HGH. There are also certain foods that can help your body produce more HGH. These include fish, pineapple, cruciferous vegetables, red meat (in moderation) beans and legumes.
- 5) Lose weight – Of course there are many good and healthy reasons to lose weight, but among its other health risks, obesity also has a negative impact on HGH production. Fat slows your metabolism, lean muscle raises your metabolism. Lean muscle “craves” HGH. The more lean muscle you have, the higher your metabolism, and the more HGH you will produce.

There is a sixth, and probably the most effective way to achieve the many anti-aging benefits of HGH and that is with growth hormone therapy. Studies have found that HGH therapy promotes the building of lean muscle and helps to burn excessive fat.
Any fitness professional will tell you that burning fat and building muscle also raises your metabolism, which helps you to get in shape, and stay in shape.
Growth hormone also plays an important part in promoting overall health and longevity.
There are many benefits of growth hormone therapy. Supplemental HGH can:
- Help you build muscle and burn fat
- Improve your vitality and energy levels
- Improve sleep
- Improve cognition
- Improve libido or sex drive
- Provide an increased sense of overall strength and well-being
Anyone over who is experiencing symptoms that may be related to low HGH levels such as, fatigue, weight gain, sleep disruption, seek the advice of qualified medical professionals who are experienced with the symptoms of low HGH levels, and the proper administration of growth hormone therapy.
Only through proper analysis and diagnostics, can doctors get at the root of your aging issues, and then prescribe the most effective treatments for your individual needs and lifestyle.
