The No. 1 FREE Hack to Increase the Human Growth Hormone for Better Health

The Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a hormone that plays a huge role in the normal development of children and adolescents as the name implies. However, it also plays a role in adults.

obeseHGH deficiency in adults typically leads to

  • Higher levels of body fat,
  • Lower lean body mass, and
  • Decreased bone mass (osteopenia).

HGH only lasts a few minutes in the bloodstream.  It goes to the liver for metabolism, where it is converted into a number of other growth factors, the most important of which is Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF1).

Scientists first harvested HGH from cadavers in the 1950s, but only synthesized it in labs in the early 1980s.  Soon afterwards, it became a popular performance-enhancing drug. Normal levels of HGH peak in puberty (as you might expect) and gradually decrease thereafter.

Growth hormone is typically secreted during sleep and is one of the so-called counter-regulatory hormones.  HGH along with cortisol and adrenalin tell the body to increase the availability of glucose – so it counters the effect of insulin.

Fasting – A History of it’s Spiritual and Health Benefits

A quick look at the history of fasting, both for spiritual and for health reasons. Fasting is not starvation. Fasting is a purposeful health habit with some serious benefits. We are hardwired for fasting too! It’s a total part of our DNA!

Fasting is a time tested and ancient tradition.  It has been used not only for weight loss, but to improve concentration, extend life, prevent Alzheimers, prevent insulin resistance and even reverse the entire aging process.  There is much to talk about here so we begin a new subsection “Fasting”.

There is nothing new, except what has been forgotten – Marie Antoinette

So the forgotten question of weight loss is “When should we eat?” We don’t ignore the question of frequency anywhere else. Falling from a building 1000 feet off the ground once will likely kill us. But is this the same as falling from a 1-foot wall 1000 times? Absolutely not. Yet the total distance fallen is still 1000 feet.
