The Hidden Truths of the Human Growth Hormone

The human growth hormone (HGH) is a vital protein that is produced and secreted into the bloodstream by the pituitary gland. It is responsible for growth and development in children and the maintenance of a healthy and youthful body in adults. You won’t live long without it and its deficiency is responsible for hormonal imbalance, which can lead to depression and a general lack of motivation in your endeavors in life. You can get the sense that this hormone is essential for a healthy life as a human being and that’s why I would like to let you know just a little bit more about its significance in your life.


The HGH is responsible for so many essential things in our lives. It helps our bodies with vital things like,

  • Body mass
  • Quick muscle buildup and development
  • High testosterone levels
  • High libido
  • High metabolism; hence, maintaining a good body weight
  • Faster weight loss (when you work out and eat right)
  • Quick healing process from injuries and even broken bones
  • Stronger Bones
  • Less risk to heart diseases and heart conditions, and
  • A good hormonal balance; hence, often being in a good mood

However, past the age of 30, the production of the HGH goes down and keeps at it as we age. Hence, it is common for some people past 30 to find themselves in the need of a way to boost the level of their HGH. Please note that it doesn’t necessarily mean that you will automatically need a boost in HGH levels once you reach 30. People are different and as such, our bodies don’t function exactly the same way. There are those who will do quite well without the need of HGH boost past 30, and there are those who will desperately need a boost of the hormone.

Do You Need a Boost?

There are several ways of increasing the levels of HGH in your body in the event you find yourself in the need of a boost. You can consider HGH Therapy. According to National HRT, HGH therapy offers both men and women an opportunity to protect what nature gave them – the capacity to function and perform at their optimum throughout life. There is also HGH injections, which can be given per the prescriptions of a physician who specializes in HGH.


Please note that HGH injections are not something that should be used casually by individuals below 30 years old. Under thirty, our bodies usually produce enough HGH to keep us functioning at our optimum. According to WebMD, too much HGH in the body could lead to:

  • Edema
  • Muscle, nerve, or joint pain
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Carpal syndrome
  • Numbness and tingling of the skin

Therefore, if you are under thirty and suspect that you have an issue that may be related to a deficiency in the HGH, consult your doctor for professional examination and advice.

Natural Ways of Boosting HGH

Be that as it may, there are natural ways of boosting your HGH levels, provided you are healthy. The following methods will work best when you are still below thirty and will keep working for a significant period past your thirties, provided you are consistent.

  1. Adequate sleep – the prime time for the production of the HGH is when we are asleep. If your mother ever told you to get enough sleep while you were a child so that you grow taller, she was right. Children should have adequate sleep to encourage the production of the HGH to facilitate their growth and development. Adults should also get enough sleep to allow the production of a sufficient quantity of the HGH for them to enjoy the benefits highlighted at the beginning of the article.
  2. Exercise – according to an article by Harvard, sufficient exercise coupled with a good diet will help your body make the most of the HGH levels in your body. Furthermore, lower levels of body fat encourage the production of HGH, and higher levels discourage it. A good diet and regular workout will maintain a healthy body, which will encourage the production of the hormone.
  3. Fasting – yeah, depriving your body food helps. Just don’t overdo it. Healthline suggests picking a workable fasting routine and sticking to it. Don’t do it too often though. Let it be one of those things you do sometimes.
  4. Avoiding sugar and high carbs – decreasing the amount of sugar you take as well as high carb diets help in the production of the hormone. This is a no-brainer. Just avoid the high carb diets you know you should stay away from and you should be fine. Nonetheless, life is too short to deny yourself sweet stuff indefinitely. Don’t eat ice cream too often but it is okay to spoil yourself once in a while or on special occasions; for instance, birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations, and alternative special occasions.

And that’s it. I hope you get the significance of the human growth hormone in your body and will ensure you have a sufficient amount. In case of any concerns, consider your doctor. It is my sincerest wish that you keep living a healthy and happy life.
