5 Steps to Boost HGH Naturally

Boosting HGH

Middle age is the time when most people have settled into their career, family, and home. It’s also around this time that people begin to notice changes in their fitness level, appearance, and health. In case you haven’t heard, human growth hormone is the key to optimal health, especially during this challenging life stage. Human growth hormone, or HGH, which declines around 30 – 55 years of age, can be administered by injection if you have a growth hormone (GH) deficiency. But if you’re simply low in GH, you probably don’t need the injections. You may simply need to boost your fitness regime up a notch for your body to produce HGH naturally.

All middle-aged people don’t need Human Growth Hormone treatment. Only people who are deficient in HGH should seek HGH injections from a medical doctor. Some of us just need a little change to our fitness lifestyle for the extra boost of natural HGH. For this change, there are five steps you can take to increase your HGH levels and improve your life.

Get Fit with Your Body’s Own Natural HGH

Human growth hormone is produced and processed naturally in the body. But when you hit middle age, your HGH levels decrease quite substantially. If you’re GH deficient, you’ll need to seek medical advice from a doctor to obtain HGH treatment.  However, if your levels are just low enough to make you feel and look sick, you can’t get a prescription for HGH treatment. The best thing you can do is use these steps to get your body to increase its own production of human growth hormone.

Hormones & Aging

The role between hormones and aging was discovered many years ago, but it wasn’t until 1990 when a doctor named Daniel Rudman published the results of his findings in the New England Journal. Using a group of elderly men, he administered HGH to compare the positive effects of that group with a controlled test group that didn’t receive human growth hormone. What he found resulted in what we know and do today – hormone replacement therapy.

1. Increase Exercise to High Intensity Workouts

Everyone knows that exercise is good for you. But did you know that exercise, specifically high intensity workouts, will increase HGH? Research proves that HGH boosts when exercise intensifies. Some hardcore exercises that raise HGH include:

  • Biking – for outdoor cyclists
  • Stationary biking
  • Sprinting
  • Rowing machine
  • Running up a hill
  • Elliptical trainer
  • Running up and down stairs
  • Swimming

There is a particular way that you have to exercise for HGH production. You don’t exercise every day and it’s only for a certain amount of time. The exercise plan for HGH production is as follows:

  • Warm-up using a moderate exercise of your choice for 2 – 5 minutes.
  • Intensify your workout as hard as you can with a strenuous exercise for 30 seconds.
  • Slow down for 90 seconds (no longer than two minutes).
  • Repeat the strenuous exercise eight times, but not for longer than 30 minutes when you need to stop.
  • At the end of the process, slow down for recovery for 2 – 5 minutes.

Only exercise every three days. Use those two days off to allow your body to recover. If you follow this HGH production exercise regimen, you’ll get and see the results you want for a better, healthier life.

2. Get Lots of Sleep, But Only at Night

Studies show that GH is secreted in bursts during sleep, especially during the night. It’s when you’re in deep sleep that growth hormone produces the most in the body. Most growth hormone releases in pulses when you sleep. The pulses are released according to your body’s internal clock and circadian rhythm. The largest pulses occur before midnight, with some smaller ones early in the morning. Getting poor sleep at night reduces the amount of GH produced. Long-term GH production occurs when you’re in deep sleep. You’ll need a total of 7 – 10 hours of sleep to achieve positive results.

Use the following tips to optimize your sleep:

  • Avoid blue light exposure before bedtime.
  • Read a book at night.
  • Make your bedroom a comfortable temperature.
  • Don’t drink caffeine in the late afternoons.

If you follow these sleep guidelines, you’re sure to find yourself more rested and with more energy throughout the day.

3. Lose Body Fat, Especially in the Belly

That flat tire around your waist could be decreasing your GH production. Losing that bulge goes hand in hand with upping your fitness game. Intensifying exercise burns fat. Having fat around your waist is probably the worst thing for your health. Belly fat has been found to contribute to disease, as well as low GH production. A study has shown that the participants with three times the amount of body fat compared to those with less body fat had less GH production, especially those with larger amounts of belly fat. 

4. Fast Periodically

Fasting every now and then is one of the best things you can do to increase GH levels. First, it will help facilitate the loss of belly fat. Second, it will reduce insulin-release levels and this, in turn, will raise HGH levels. A study has shown that after three days of fasting, GH levels increased by 300 percent. After one week of fasting, levels increased by 1250 percent. 

Since it’s difficult to fast for long periods of time, it’s best to fast for 12 – 16 hours, with an eight-hour eating period in between. It’s also best to only fast intermittently.

5. Limit Your Sugar Intake

What you eat has a profound impact on your health, and sugar is no exception. One of the best things you can do to increase HGH levels is cut out the sugar. This is because refined carbohydrates and sugar raise insulin levels in the body. And, insulin significantly reduces GH production. One study indicates that those individuals with diabetes have a 3 – 4 times decrease in production of GH, more so than healthy individuals. 

This doesn’t mean you have to cut out sweets all together. Just limit your intake and you’ll find your body responding positively in many ways, including reduced body fat, which also increases GH production.

If you follow these five steps, you’re soon to notice small changes in both your appearance and health. Muscle mass will build, you’ll feel more energetic, and you’ll suffer from less disease. Take control of your health and life by increasing your HGH levels with diet, exercise, and sleep. This lifestyle combination will give you the life-changing results you want and need.
