You don’t need to be a pro­fes­sional ath­lete to real­ize the mag­i­cal ben­e­fits of HGH, or Human Growth Hor­mone.  This lit­tle ana­bolic hor­mone is used for mus­cle building/repair, skin and tis­sue strength­en­ing, mobi­liza­tion of fat stores, and shifts metab­o­lism to the pref­er­en­tial use of fat. Whether 2011 National League MVP Ryan Braun, was increas­ing testos­terone nat­u­rally or syn­thet­i­cally is yet to be deter­mined, but there is no doubt­ing the SUPERHUMAN effects these hor­mones can do for you when work­ing in your favor.

HGH is like your very own FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH, located in your pitu­itary gland.

You also don’t need to be a pro-athlete to want to have HGH work for you. As we get older, our HGH lev­els sub­stan­tially decline, and sub­se­quent declines in mus­cle mass and other aging effects take place.  Many of our lifestyle changes as we age affect our HGH pro­duc­tion. We eat more crap, we sleep less, we stress out more, we laugh a lot less, and we can’t even find time for the gym.

Ladies, don’t look at the word growth hor­mone and think this arti­cle isn’t for you because you aren’t inter­ested in GROWING giant mus­cles. Growth hor­mone, does a lot more than build mus­cles. It also decreases body fat, makes bones stronger, and thick­ens up your skin (for real, not metaphor­i­cally.) And you won’t grow giant mus­cles unless you are injecting/ingesting male hor­mones or ana­bolic steroids.

A com­mon com­plaint among those who are reach­ing their 30s is that their metab­o­lism SUCKS and that every dessert goes right to their ASS now that they are get­ting OLD!  Metab­o­lism and age have become the scape­goat for blame when we allow our health to dete­ri­o­rate.  Now that you’re not 16 years old any­more and you’re not grow­ing like a weed, HGH’s release isn’t nat­u­rally called upon like it was before. The dis­par­ity between 30 year-old us and 16 year-old us isn’t in the amount we have, but in the RELEASE of the hor­mone. And there are cer­tain things we can change to con­trol the release of HGH.  

Here are 6 ways to nat­u­rally increase your HGH pro­duc­tion in your body.

  1. Eat Paleo! It is this sim­ple: Our diet is stunt­ing our growth! Our west­ern diet, which con­sists mainly of large meals and high car­bo­hy­drate con­tent, forces the body to flood the blood­stream with insulin. The large amounts of insulin inhibit the amount of HGH that will enter the blood­stream. We opti­mally want HGH to flood the blood­stream, then our body has no choice but to grow stronger!  We do this by restrict­ing car­bo­hy­drates and increas­ing our pro­tein intake.
  2. Do intense work­outs! You have to per­form a work­out that is tough enough to illicit a growth hor­mone response. When we strain our mus­cles dur­ing lifts, we develop micro­scopic tears in our mus­cle tis­sue and this calls upon HGH to repair them. Not only does this repair the mus­cles, but it also stim­u­lates the growth of new mus­cles fibers, and pro­motes the release of fat from your adi­pose tis­sue, encour­ag­ing (my three favorite words) LEAN MUSCLE MASS. Focus on lift­ing heavy weights in lifts that recruit a lot of dif­fer­ent mus­cle fibers, such as bench press, shoul­der press, squat, dead­lift, and clean. Also, limit car­dio work­outs to a half hour but up the intensity.
  3. Mon­i­tor what you eat before and after work­outs!  Towards the end of a work­out and imme­di­ately after is when your body gets the memo to pour that HGH out into the blood to repair and rebuild. You don’t want to be down­ing a power bar or fruity drink post-workout that will inhibit this response. I like to leave an hour before work­out and a half hour after where the only thing I take in is water. Then it’s a pro­tein rich shake or meal that will help rebuild the muscles.
  4. Eat pro­tein rich foods! Amino acids from pro­tein rich foods will nat­u­rally raise HGH pro­duc­tion. Amino acids like Argi­nine, Glu­t­a­mine, L-Lysine, and L-Glysine are extremely impor­tant to HGH, and very ben­e­fi­cial to over­all health.  Seri­ous ath­letes and lifters should sup­ple­ment their diet with these amino acids to inten­sify results.  This diet will also induce the pro­duc­tion of lots of good eicosanoids. These cell-to-cell mes­sen­ger micro hor­mones come in two types, they can be “good” and be ben­e­fi­cial to your health or they can be bad. A healthy, protein-rich diet will make sure you are pro­duc­ing a lot more “good” eicosanoids.
  5. Don’t eat before bed! Those late night cook­ies, I’m look­ing right at you Santa Claus, are hurt­ing you more than you think. An increase of blood glu­cose lev­els by way of eat­ing sweet, starchy carbs late at night, will inhibit the release of HGH and end up in more stor­age of fat. Resist eat­ing at least two hours before bed­time. If you have to sat­isfy a talk­ing tummy late at night, a whey pro­tein shake (with lit­tle or no carbs) will do the trick.
  6. Get some sleep! Your body needs 7–9 hours of sleep every night.  HGH is secreted in stage III and stage IV of the sleep cycle, after the first hour or two into your sleep. You need to make sure you are get­ting a deep, sound slum­ber every night.

By being in con­trol of our diet, rest, and phys­i­cal activ­ity, we ARE in con­trol of our body’s aging. If we change the lifestyle fac­tors in the pos­i­tive direc­tions, we can reverse this course of aging and increase our bod­ies’ HGH pro­duc­tion nat­u­rally. How does more mus­cle, less fat, and a more effi­cient meta­bolic sys­tem sound?
