Human Growth Hormone (HGH) And Why It’s Important To You

I’m sure you’ve heard a little about Human Growth Hormone (HGH) before.

Maybe for its infamous use in elite athletics, as a prospect to be genetically engineered in copious amounts, or perhaps just it’s noteworthy presence and immense power on the human body.

Here’s some background:

Human Growth Hormone is an anabolic hormone naturally produced in the human body. It is created by something in your brain called the pituitary gland which is responsible for the various outputs of hormones.

HGH stimulates the growth of muscle, cartilage and bone. Referring back to its given name, human growth hormone, it literally makes the whole human specimen flourish in stature.

Back in the mid 50’s scientists first learned how to isolate HGH, and use it for several things such as treating children who were deemed too small for their gestational size.
In those days, the only way of getting your hands of the hormone was to extract the pituitary gland from deceased human corpses, and subsequently the hormones were processed and made into injectable form.

Nowadays, HGH can be made in mass amounts throughout varying laboratories in the world. Thus the use and misuse of the hormone has gone up significantly.

In the sporting world, it has become increasingly popular to supplement HGH with other illegal performance enhancers such as anabolic steroids or EPO (Erythropoietin).

Usually when an athlete gets nailed for the use of drugs, it is not solely for human growth hormone, but instead a stack of various illegalities.

Another reason being that HGH is already naturally produced in the body, and thus hard to differentiate what is synthetic and what is natural in each individual.

In particular this is true because your HGH levels can vary drastically, up to 100-fold by the results of some studies depending on your sleep, exercise and nutritional habits.

Most of us here though aren’t concerned about that side of the story. Let’s talk about what HGH means to you, what happens if you’re deficient in it, and what you can do to stay at your peak in this area of health.

Having an HGH deficiency can be quite a serious problem. Take a look at some of the symptoms, and you tell me how concerned you should be:

-A higher level of body fat, especially around the waist, anxiety and depression, less strength/stamina and ability to get up an exercise, less muscle mass, fatigue, feelings of low self esteem, reduced bone density (higher risk of bone fractures), decreased sexual function and interest

DAMN! I don’t know about you, but after reading those symptoms…that sounds like a roller-coaster straight outta hell.

Mental, emotional and physical discrepancies…all bundled into one package is not something I want on my horizon.

While it is inevitable for some individuals to experience low levels of human growth hormone, there are some ways you can stimulate its production, therefore doing your part in day to day life to help maintain a healthy balance in your body.

Similar to efforts to boost testosterone and short bursts of high intensity training will make an environment where HGH is stimulated and welcomed.

GETTING ADEQUATE SLEEP. This has gotta be the foundation of curing almost anything. ESPECIALLY if you feel you might be lacking in hormone production, sleep is #1. Get your 8 hours.

Interestingly the amino acids in a high quality, protein packed meal will also boost your production of human growth hormone.

Also, avoiding too many bad sources of refined carbohydrates (i.e. breads, pastas…) will keep your insulin levels low, consequently allowing growth hormone to do its work because there won’t be any inhibition from the insulin response.

It’s been seen at the age of 20-21, approximate HGH levels are around 10 milligrams per 1 blood deciliter. At age 61 HGH levels dropped to around 2 milligrams.

Big red flag here…what does that mean? As you get older, HGH levels tend to drop DRASTICALLY.

As you age, being more aware of your hormones and what is really taking a hit is crucial in maintaining optimal health. Keeping your body in a healthy state THROUGHOUT life, whether your young or old is something to be prioritized.

If you are young, don’t abuse your youth and only sleep 4 hours a night, train 4 times a day, never work on your mobility…just because you CAN.

In doing this, you will never know what your body and your mind can do in a time where health is at its peak.

But even more importantly, the breakdown and damage that is occurring on a consistent basis as a result of your poisoned lifestyle, is going to catch up with you later in life. If you’re young, be smart.

If you’re OLDER, I’m talking over 35, closer to 40, and you’re starting to feel these side effects of running down your systems, poor diet etc. etc. Not to worry.

It’s never too late to make some changes.

Even more powerful is that we can ALWAYS improve on something. You can analyze your lifestyle, set some goals and start hitting them immediately.

Prioritizing your health and getting the most important things dialed in, so that you can perform in the gym, at the job, in the bedroom and life in general.

You gotta be feeling good to help serve others in the best way, and make your contribution to the world.

You can’t give what you don’t have. Make these lifestyle factors a priority, and your on your way to a more fulfilling life. Attention to your health is going to become unavoidable at some point.

Just an FYI…

The same things that boost testosterone naturally also raise HGH
