ANTIAGING - let's talk abit about Growth Hormone (GH) 🏋️‍♀️

The major role of growth hormone in stimulating body growth is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete IGF-I, that produces cartilage cells. This plays a part in bone, skin and organ growth, as well as muscle protein synthesis. It also promotes lipolysis, thereby limiting visceral adiposity, and regulating carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular system function, aerobic exercise capacity, and cognitive function. The liver that cannot perform effectively if not allowed rest. So what should you take into account for a healthy liver? -People who's gallbladder has been removed for examples liver functions at 80%. -Alcohol consumption is not ok. -Becareful because betacarotenes in excess can harm the liver. -Augment general antioxidant consumption. Amoungst a well-orientated meal plan, aid to your liver's health by detoxing properly with high quality well-rounded liver regenerating supplements. Detoxing can boost GH by up to 400%. In relation to exercise, high intensity interval training (HIIT) also boosts GH synthesis post workout, while sheading a small amount of body fat. Cortisol, being the fat promoting hormone increases after 30 minutes of HIIT. Remember that as we age, cortisol levels rise. So the trick is to keep cortisol levels low and GH high. The only so called 'exercise' that lower's cortisol is Yoga, which does not raise GH. I would suggest a day or every two days alternating practicing one or the other.

Supplementation with L-arginine, growth hormone releaser, is most effective for people between 25 to 45 years of age and on taken on an empty stomach. Mamy people look to up their GH with the consumption of whey protein. Soy protein is not a good source. Beware because some whey protein powders may contain soy proteín.
