In an earlier post, we have discovered the high ratio of fibro-fighters who have low levels of five important hormones. This includes the Human Growth Hormone.
The deficiency of HGH is going to surface with low energy levels, muscle weakness and a weak memory among other symptoms.
In order to increase the body’s production of HGH, you need to exercise with intensivity and get a good night’s sleep.
Exercising your body to go beyond the anaerobic level, means to push yourself to a level where you are unable to have a conversation. This will raise your HGH tremendously.
Avoid any sugars after your workout or it will diminish the secretion of HGH.
Getting a good night’s sleep is also very important because HGH is at its highest secretion level when our body is in deep sleep.
For those who are unable to get into a deep level of sleep, you might want to consider eating foods rich in Melatonin content. These foods include raspberries, pineapples, bananas, oranges, oats, sweet corn, rice, tomatoes, and barley. Studies have placed raspberries and pineapples at the top of this list.
Another promising way to increase your production of HGH is to have certain amino acids included in your dietary plan. While most of the AAs work in synergy to produce HGH, arginine works on its own as does ornithine. However, if combined, there is a huge jump in the levels of HGH produced. Fortunately, most high protein foods contain fair amounts of both AAs – such as lean meat, fish, dairy products and also soybeans.
Other AAs of benefit will be a combination of lysine, glycine and glutamine. Frankly, for this category of needs, our body is best served with and by eggs, lean meat and fish.
