Hormone Replacement Therapy
Tips for Increasing HGH Levels
you may not realize it, Human Growth Hormone is incredibly important
throughout the lifespan, not just during puberty. Biological HGH is
secreted by the Human Pituitary Gland and is distributed throughout
the body before it is ultimately absorbed by the liver.
childhood, an absence of Growth Hormone prevents the human body from
growing properly, and there is growing evidence mounting that shows
that a childhood deficiency can lead to a number of medical problems
later in life. Natural HGH also promotes optimal health throughout
the body via a number of different mechanisms.
Does HGH Encourage a Healthy Body?

increases metabolism, burning adipose fat and contributing to a
healthy figure. Without healthy Levels of Growth Hormone, the body
loses an important mechanism to get rid of excess fat, and it makes
losing weight through diet and exercise much more difficult.
is intimately involved with bone health, encouraging a process known
as bone remodeling, which is how bones maintain optimal bone mineral
density, preventing fractures and breaks.
Growth Hormone promotes healthy organ maintenance. Because HGH has a
stimulative effect upon cell metabolism and division, Normal Growth
Hormone Levels are largely responsible for the renewal process which
keeps the organs healthy and functioning at high capacity
Growth Hormone even encourages the healthy growth of both nails and
hair. Although these cells are technically dead skin cells, the body
generates them more quickly, because Human Growth Hormone speeds up
healthy cellular replacement.
streamlines the circulatory and cardiovascular system, controlling
triglyceride levels while reducing the influence of LDL Cholesterol.
In addition to this, it also increases levels of healthy
cholesterol, known as HDL Cholesterol. Through these means and
others, Human Growth Hormone reduces the risk of heart attack and
stroke while strengthening the heart at the same time.
Growth Hormone also acts as an important buffer against cognitive
decline. Patients with low levels of HGH are much more likely to
experience symptoms related to cognitive decline than patients with
levels closer to normal.
benefit directly related to cellular metabolism is that Human Growth
Hormone bolsters the function of the immune system. Individuals with
low HGH Production are much more susceptible to illness.
Growth Hormone is even more important in another aspect of health:
rehabilitation. Biological HGH helps the body recover more quickly
from simple cuts and bruises, as well as more serious issues, such
as broken bones. Human Growth Hormone Levels are correlated with
general recovery time from surgery as well.
just an abridged list of the benefits of healthy Human Growth Hormone
Production. Researchers are just beginning to fully understand the
broad importance of this undeniably vital hormone.
Growth Hormone Production Slows with Age
Although HGH is incredibly important, and sustains human health in so
many ways, the human body starts to lose its ability to secrete Human
Growth Hormone effectively as we grow older. This progression from
hormone balance to imbalance is an inevitable factor which occurs to
all peoples and even all species. HGH is released at peak levels
during puberty, and after puberty, HGH production decreases from a
level which encourages growth to a level which encourages health.
Growth Hormone Levels remain consistent from the end of puberty until
the late twenties or even the early thirties. After this point,
however, Endogenous Human Growth Hormone Production starts to
decline. This decline is slow, but steady, and over the course of
years or decades it can start to have a significant impact on overall
health. As Human Growth Hormone Levels decline, a number of changes
Deficiency Plays Major Role in the Aging Process
The more that we study the aging process, the more that we realize
that so many factors of that process are actually the result of
Hormone Imbalance and Hormone Deficiency. Hormone Deficiency leads to
a number of symptoms. In hinders the body's ability to sustain muscle
mass, it encourages fat accumulation and it weakens the bones, heart,
and cardiovascular system.
HGH Deficiency leads directly to increased risk of numerous health
issues which can hamper your life or even contribute to your own
HGH Deficiency Diagnosed?
There are two important means by which physicians diagnose Human
Growth Hormone Deficiency. One way to diagnose Low Growth Hormone
Levels is through pituitary stimulation. This form of testing is used
to diagnose HGH Deficiency which is caused by an insufficiency of the
pituitary. Most people have healthy pituitary glands, however.
The second way that Growth Hormone Deficiency is diagnosed is
indirectly by means of measuring biological IGF-1 Levels. IGF-1 is
also known as Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 HGH is delivered quickly
to the body in pulses, making it hard to directly measure. Luckily,
HGH is quickly converted into IGF-1, where it remains in the blood
stream at relatively steady levels.
Most people experience HGH Deficiency as a result of reduced
stimulation by a hormone known as GH-RH, so pituitary testing is not
an effective means of establishing Human Growth Hormone Deficiency
for most patients that are experiencing flagging HGH Levels. By
utilizing both tests, doctors can more effectively establish the root
cause of your Growth Hormone Deficiency.
IGF-1 Levels Indicate HGH Deficiency?
of IGF-1 in the bloodstream correlates effectively with internal HGH
Levels, making it a useful means to accurately diagnose Human Growth
Hormone Deficiency. When testing IGF-1 Levels, the key operative
value is 200. Patients with IGF-1 Levels below 200 are generally
considered to be Deficient in Human Growth Hormone. Of course, the
exact need for HGH varies according to age, but 200 is an ideal rule
I Restore Healthy Human Growth Hormone Levels?
patients that have very low levels of HGH, the most effective means
to quickly restore optimal hormone balance is through the use of
Human Growth Hormone Injections or Sermorelin Acetate Injections. HGH
Shots restore Human Growth Hormone directly, supplementing the
production of HGH by the pituitary. Sermorelin Acetate restores Human
Growth Hormone by mimicking the function of GH-RH by the
hypothalamus, increasing the rate of natural secretion of
Testosterone by the Pituitary Gland.
and Sermorelin Acetate Shots are delivered on a daily basis in order
to restore healthy HGH production. Both forms are very effective, and
it is up to you and your doctor to decide which form of treatment
will likely provide the best benefits.
Ways to Boost HGH Production
Of course, for patients under the age of thirty, or patients with
mild HGH Deficiency, you may wish to supplement your HGH Production
naturally until an age which you qualify for Human Growth Hormone
Replacement Therapy. In addition to simply aging, there are numerous
factors which contribute to optimal hormone balance, including:
Physical Activity - Human Growth Hormone is stimulated directly by
strenuous physical activity, and hard exercise like weight lifting
or sprinting stimulates HGH production effectively.
Weight - Body fat naturally suppresses Human Growth Hormone
Production. People that weigh more produce more insulin. Increased
Insulin production has a negative effect on HGH Secretion, and it
also reduces the benefits of Secreted Growth Hormone.
Stress Levels - High Levels of Stress correlate with many negative
health factors. Production of Cortisol can hinder Optimal Hormone
Sleeping Habits - Human Growth Hormone is produced primarily when
we sleep, and when we sleep poorly, our HGH Production Suffers
Nutrition - Diet is incredibly important for Healthy Hormone
Levels. Without providing the body with the nutrients that it needs,
the body will not be able to produce HGH as effectively, or it may
choose to divert existing resources to other aspects of health.
have a number of other recommendations when it comes to naturally
restoring hormone balance. Below are Ten Effective Tips on How to
mentioned above, intense exercise is an amazing way to stimulate HGH
Production. The best type of exercise is known as Burst Training. In
this form of exercise, you encourage your heart to work extra hard
for short periods of time, around thirty seconds per burst. Engaging
in 5 or more 30 second bursts per workout will provide you with a
significant boost in HGH. This form of exercise stimulates fast
twitch muscle, which is the most effective way to stimulate Growth
Hormone through exercise.
in touch with your Circadian Rhythm. Sleep is arguably more
important for healthy hormone production than any other single
factor. Make sure you get eight hours of sleep per night, or even a
bit more than eight if it is what your body requires. Also, try to
fall asleep at the same time every night, when possible. By adhering
to a schedule, you make it easier for your body to enter the deepest
phases of sleep responsible for Maximum HGH Release.
Melatonin. Consider taking melatonin before you fall asleep,
especially if your sleeping habits aren't as regular as you'd like
them to be. We believe that a dose of melatonin between one and five
milligrams just before bedtime can help you get the most out of your
nighttime HGH Release. Studies have shown that a dose of Melatonin
before bedtime can boost HGH Production by more than 150%.
your diet with GABA. GABA is an amino acid known as Gamma
Aminobutyric Acid. Like Melatonin, research has shown that GABA
Supplementation can increase Human Growth Hormone Production. GABA
can increase HGH Production by as much as 200% for some patients.
GABA is incredibly effective if taken just before engaging in
exercise. It also provides benefits if taken before bed as well,
especially for patients that have trouble sleeping.
More Protein. In order to maximize HGH Production, engage in smart
eating. Choose foods that give you the most bang for the buck in
regard to protein. In addition to this, be conscientious about your
carbohydrate intake. Don't go to sleep full, but we recommend eating
a small snack before bed which is both high in protein and low in
carbs. The amino acids within the protein will increase Human Growth
Hormone Production, and by restricting carbs, you can prevent
insulin from counteracting the productivity of Human Growth Hormone.
your Vitamin D. Although the body can create Vitamin D through
contact with sunlight, most people don't get enough Vitamin D in
their diet. Even if you do get an adequate level of exposure to
sunlight, we still recommend that you take in around 100
nanograms/milliliter of Vitamin D per day. Great Vitamin D sources
include fortified milk, flounder, salmon, tuna, mushrooms, and
exercise, do not eat or drink sugar. Studies show that ingesting
sugar in the two hours after a workout will encourage the release of
Somatostatin by the hypothalamus. High-Glycemic foods also lead to
insulin spikes which can decrease the effects of HGH Production.
Excess consumption of simple sugars and carbs lead directly to
inhibited HGH Release.
L-Lysine and L-Arginine. Although both of these amino acids provide
benefits when taken separately, the body treats these two nutrients
as component parts, and combining the two can stimulate HGH
Production significantly. In order to maximize the benefit, take
three to five grams of each. When taken alone, these two amino acids
do not significantly stimulate HGH Release.
your diet with Glutamine. We recommend taking up to ten grams of
Glutamine per day, either after exercise or just prior to bed. There
is evidence that Glutamine can increase Human Growth Hormone
Production. This benefit is apparent even at levels of two grams per
supplementing your diet with Alpha-GPC can also encourage healthy
HGH Production. Alpha-GPC is a natural compound that is present in
milk and is also naturally synthesized by the brain. Research shows
that taking Alpha-GPC before engaging in anaerobic exercise
stimulates HGH release. In addition to benefits related to HGH,
there is also evidence that Alpha-GPC has beneficial stimulative
effects on the brain which limit cognitive decline with age.
Alpha-GPC may also protect the brain against neurodegenerative
diseases like Alzheimer's.
