The Human Growth Hormone, commonly called Hgh is considered to be a very powerful anti-aging hormone. It helps you to avoid many age related diseases and slows down the process of aging. |
You probably would have noticed how some people age better than the rest of us. This of course is a genetic factor but if you can produce more growth hormones, then you too can age better with less of the pains, wrinkles and age related diseases. Now you can unlock the secret of looking and feeling younger by increasing your hgh levels.
You produce Hgh in abundance during your growing years as this hormone also helps you very much in your growing up process. Alas, your natural production starts to decline when you are in your 20s and that is why henceforth, you are getting older. Your natural production can actually decreased by about as much as 15% per decade and by the time you reach 45 you will have already lost a significant amount of your HGH level. This is when you begin to age even faster. Frightening, isn't it?
There are several ways you can increase your growth hormones such as human growth hormone replacement therapies that can only be administered by qualified medical practitioners and which is also very expensive which makes it out of reach for most people. Also, this method comes with many unwanted side effects.
Another controversial method is to take supplements that can help your body to produce more of its own natural hgh. However, this method has yet to be empirically proven. So the safest and cheapest method is to increase your hgh by natural means. Fortunately, there are many ways for you to increase your hgh production levels naturally.
Exercise - If you want to really increase your HGH production it's important to start a regular exercise routine. In case if you have not noticed, people who exercise regularly do look and feel younger. This is largely due to their increased hgh production.
Any exercise that are of higher intensities will work but some will work even better. One of the better exercises is intensive aerobic workouts. Weight training will also increase your production of hgh and also testosterone, another important hormone.
Furthermore, when you lose weight through exercising, your hgh level will further be increased because obesity inhibits your hgh production and so losing some body fat can help significantly.
Weight training with quick and high reps until muscle fatigued is an excellent way to increase hgh production. This is because this type of training produces lactic acid in your muscles which is a natural by product of muscle contractions and reduces the pH level of your muscles, which is why you get the "burning" sensation once you reach muscular failure.
The lactic acid built up will actually damage your muscle tissues if not dealt with by your body and so your body is forced to increase your hgh production as one of the mechanisms for helping your muscles to recover faster and shuttle out the excess lactic acid.
What to eat - Along with a good exercise regimen, you should also watch what you eat. Your diet should consist of good quality proteins and low on saturated fats. Monounsaturated and omega 3 fats are good fats to be added in your diet to replace saturated and trans fat.
You will also want to avoid high glycemic carbohydrates and sugary foods because these foods will stimulate insulin spikes which will interfere with your human growth hormone production.
Sleep - Our bodies produce the most hgh when we are sleeping. Many studies have confirmed that hgh is produced during the later stages of sleep and thus if you are sleeping less than 8 hours a night, you are short changing your hgh production process. That is why people who sleep a lot always look younger and refreshed.
So now that you know the secret to looking and feeling younger, why not start with the above program to produce more human growth hormones?
