Does G H make you grow?

If you're a child, yes.

If you're an adult, no. It actually
makes you drop inches!


It's like clock work. When I'm a guest on a radio talk show, invariably, someone will ask, “Will G H make me grow? I don't need to grow!”

I'll spend valuable air time explaining the history of G H esearch rather than explaining what the audience really needs to know -- how to get the body fat cutting, muscle toning, and metabolism synergizing benefits of exercise-induced G H.

Most middle-age and older adults I know have experienced all the growth they want to see. They want the opposite. And that's what increasing exercise-induced G H will do for most people.


G H changes roles in adulthood

For children, G H is truly the “hormone of growth” as it was initially named by Dr. Harvey Cushing in 1912. It makes children grow. Once we reach adulthood however, G He changes roles and it actually becomes the adult “fitness hormone.”

If you think about it, after puberty and the final teenage growth spurt, G H doesn't make adults “grow." Researchers show that when G H is released during fitness training, it targets body fat like a heat-seeking missile for two hours and reduces inches. Sounds more like the “fitness hormone” to me!


How to increase G H

There are four ways to increase G H. Well, actually there are five ways - if you count getting G H injections from an Endocrinologist, but I wouldn't recommend that route. It's very expensive, and there are risks of serious side-effects.

There are four main ways to increase G H ... NATURALLY.

Researchers show that anaerobic, high-intensity sprinting types of fitness training, some inexpensive supplements like 2-grams of L-Glutamine before training, adequate fluid during workouts, and adequate "deep sleep" will increase your body's natural release of growth hormone.

The take home

Make sure you are getting adequate "deep" sleep, drinking plenty of water (especially during workouts), and reaching all of the G H release benchmarks during exercise.

Have a great day!
