Starting at age 25-30, the body’s level of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) begins to decline, so that by the time we are age 65, many of us have little or no HGH. The decline of HGH is accompanied by many of the miseries we associate with aging; lack of strength, lack of endurance, potbellies, saggy skin and the lack of our vitality.
For women, the extra fat on our triceps or back of our arms is a sure sign of not releasing enough growth HGH along with declining Estrogen.
You can increase your HGH level naturally at any age; by exercise .HGH is released in response to intense and strenuous activity. This activity is exclusive to weight lifting or resistance exercises. Two or three times a week is particularly effective. Running, Pilate’s, jogging, walking and yoga does not give the greatest benefits of HGH release.
Start your weight lifting program at 12-15 repetitions and work your way to heavier weights at 6-10 repetitions. Lower repetitions and higher weights are the goal for maximum HGH release. Adding lower body exercises to your routine will give you an even greater boost.
Numerous clinical studies have shown the HGH can help men and women gain lean body mass, loss unwanted body fat, and improve the markers of heart health. Several additional studies have found that restoring HGH levels to that of a more youthful state will increase lean body mass along with shedding unwanted fat mass.
By doing so, this can help people maintain their independence with a higher quality of life alone with reducing the number of visits to the doctor.
Just remember to eat 20-25 grams of protein with a low glycemic fruit ½ hour to 1 hour before you start your exercise program. Not maintaining a controlled blood sugar level during your workout will minimize the release of HGH during your workout. If you blood sugar drops while you are working out, your insulin levels will rise and in response to the insulin then HGH will not be released.
