Human growth hormone isn’t some miracle drug or idea cooked up in a pharmacy. This is a real hormone that the body produces naturally while sleeping.
It is responsible for several important jobs in the human body, such as. Improving tissue repair, growing muscles, some brain function, stabilizing metabolism, and assisting growth.
That’s a lot of work for a simple hormone. While it may be responsible for growth, it is not responsible for weight gain in adults. As a matter of fact, higher HGH production is shown to assist in weight loss by a few pounds.
You really have two options when it comes to human growth hormone. There are synthetic HGH products, such as Hygetropin, which claim to perform the same jobs as natural HGH.
Studies have shown that HGH injections do help weight loss goals, but only by a few pounds and there are some potential side effects.
Of course, science is constantly improving and new techniques are always being discovered, but for now, there are better methods for getting more HGH into your body.
Rather than use a synthetic HGH product, you can naturally boost your own HGH production within your body.
This doesn’t require any shots or medications, any visits to the doctor, and now questionable supplements to get the job done.
This is all about you and whether you are willing to make the necessary changes to produce more HGH. These techniques work perfect alongside an existing fitness schedule.
Losing weight helps HGH production and HGH production helps lose more weight. The cycle can continue as your work yourself into shape.
Did you know that over 80 percent of your total HGH level was produced while you were sleeping. To be exact, your body produces human growth hormone during 7-to-9 hours of consecutive sleep.
Consecutive hours means no waking up or slipping in an hour here and an hour there. This is the time that your body is recharging and producing more human growth hormone for the following day.
Improving your sleeping habits will actually improve your overall HGH production dramatically. Try getting a new mattress if you find that you aren’t getting a long, comfortable sleeping period.
The mattress is usually the first problem when you are suffering from too little sleep. It’s also a good idea to cut caffeine off around 4 PM.
The body does a lot of its necessary work while you are sleeping, not only HGH production. Improving sleep habits will improve your health in general. More sleep usually means less stress.
Stress causes certain hormones to be produced which cause weight gain. Weight gain also restricts HGH production. Focus on improving your sleep quality and life will seem to improve in general.
A sleep mask can help cut away the distractions of the night, especially in a noisy environment.
While you are working on building a new sleeping schedule, remember two important things: no caffeine after 4PM and no eating 2-to-3 hours before bedtime.
Eating foods, even healthy foods, causes the body to produce more insulin. Science has shown that insulin levels and HGH production are related to one another inversely.
When insulin is high, HGH is low and when insulin is low, HGH is high. If you eat shortly before you sleep, you will still have high insulin levels as your body begins to produce more HGH.
As mentioned, those increased insulin levels will cause the body to create less HGH than normal
If you are building a diet that takes HGH into consideration, then avoid foods that are high in protein in the evening time. High-protein foods cause more insulin production in the average man and woman.
No food, however, causes the body not to produce insulin. Insulin is the body’s response when you eat anything, even expensive health foods. Don’t confuse the word ‘insulin’ with ‘blood sugar level’.
Many people make this mistake, but they are actually two similar, but different things.
Fasting may be beneficial if you can handle long hours without eating. Don’t go overboard, but a simple fasting routine where you don’t eat for 15-20 hours of the day is perfectly fine and healthy.
This type of schedule will limit insulin production to a minimum during certain periods of the day.
Your body experiences something known as a exercise induced growth hormone response when you partake in serious physical activity that uses multiple muscle groups.
This is one of the few other times outside of sleep when the body naturally produces HGH.
Pull-ups are great for getting the maximum effect. Cardiovascular training is great for losing weight, but won’t effect your HGH levels by much. Instead, work all muscle groups in the body.
Since weight loss was the original topic of discussion, it’s important to understand how weight loss will improve your HGH production. Obese patients have an increased resistance to insulin.
This means that the body must produce more insulin than normal to perform the exact same job. Once again, high insulin levels means low HGH levels.
This is the cycle that was mentioned earlier. As you lose more weight, your body can produce more HGH naturally during sleep.
As you produce more HGH, your metabolism increases and you lose more weight and build more muscles faster. It’s a perfect plan.
These tips are fairly simple to follow and will get the job done for everyone. Don’t wait until next week to begin, get started tonight and enjoy more HGH tomorrow.
