HGH: Why this Little Hormone is Crucial for Breast Growth and How You Can Get More of It
You already know that HGH, or human growth hormone, is one of the most important hormones in breast growth and it’s small wonder why. HGH is aptly named – it’s the “growth” hormone because it stimulates the growth of cells, tissues, organs, cartilage and more.
It also stimulates another group of hormones called somatomedins, which promote cell growth and division in response, ultimately helping with tissue repair, cell replacement and growth.
And the role HGH plays in our bodies is quite extensive. Weight loss is one – researchers at Harvard reviewed over 30 studies testing the effects of human growth hormones in healthy adults and found that people who were treated with HGH gained 4.6 pounds of lean body mass and lost a similar amount of body fat.
A large part of this has to do with the fact that HGH allows our cells and tissues to quickly grow – an important function necessary to breast enhancement. It’s the hormone that’s hugely responsible for the growth spurts we went through in our younger years – especially our teens (that’s when HGH is at its peak level in our bodies).
The problem, though, is that although our bodies produce HGH our whole lives, our body starts to produce less and less as we get older. After age 30, the secretion rate of HGH drops around 14% per decade – seventy five years of age, you will have around 75% less HGH in your body than when you were in your twenties.
But don’t worry – all is not lost. There are a number of ways to ramp up your body’s production of HGH. And no, these don’t include taking HGH pills or shots…
How to Boost Your HGH Levels
There are a few things you can do to increase the production of this growth hormone. For instance, start with the basics.
Do daily exercise…
This doesn’t mean you have to become a gym bunny to boost your HGH levels – studies show that short but intense bouts of exercise are the best for HGH release – aim for high intensity exercises for at least 10 minutes per day.
Get enough sleep…
Sleeping here is one of the most important things. HGH release is highest during the first part of the night, which is why it’s crucial to make sure you get to bed at a decent time so you can take advantage of this.
Deep sleep is also key – most HGH production in your body happens during REM sleep, which can be affected by stress. Taking care of yourself and trying to lead a stress free life as much as possible can help your levels of HGH go up during that great night of deep sleep.
Interesting, women naturally produce more growth hormone than men – so most of us already have that advantage to begin with. But what’s even more interesting is that levels of estrogen are positively correlated with levels of human growth hormone. Yea, that’s right – the more estrogen we have circulating in our bodies, the more growth hormone our bodies produce.
So do amino acids…
You know how we’re always trying to promote more protein in your diets? That’s ’cause another great, natural way to boost your bodies production of growth hormone is with amino acids.
Why is this, you ask? Well, protein are the building blocks of hormones – including the human growth hormone. And proteins are made up of amino acids, so if you add certain amino acids to your system, this can drastically enhance your growth hormone production, thus increasing your chances of turning the breast growth back on.
According to Dr Oz – the best amino acids you can take for this are glutamine, ornithine, arginine and lysine. He points to a new study that shows that these four amino acids in particular have the potential to spike human growth hormone levels by more than 600% – it’s currently the most powerful amino acid combination and pretty easy to remember by the acronym G-O-A-L:
- Glycine allows you to store more energy and promotes a good night’s sleep.
- Ornithine helps remove toxins from the body, which can otherwise zap your energy.
- Arginine keeps energy levels up by helping to regulate blood pressure so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard. This amino acid may also help decrease body fat, another energy drain.
- Lysine aids in turning fatty foods into energy.
If you want an example of what foods might have these amino acids, apples have high quantities of lysine, while blackberries and blueberries are high on arginine content. If it’s difficult for you to get enough amino acids from foods alone, this amino blend has a potent mix of all four G-O-A-L amino acids.
Okay, the top 4 ways are fairly easy, effective ways of boosting your HGH levels to promote breast growth. As easy as they are, though – remember that the key is doing them every single day!
