Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is considered to be the fountain of youth by many people. This is because higher levels of HGH have been correlated with decreased body fat, increased muscle mass, and looking younger.
In other words, higher levels of HGH is a really good thing, for both men and women of all ages. Like testosterone, HGH is a hormone your body naturally produces.
Here are 5 ways you can help your body make more human growth hormone.
Improve Sleep Habits
Healthy sleep is a fundamental part of any successful fitness program. It’s crucial for normal bodily functions, including (you guessed it) producing HGH.
Getting less than 6 hours of sleep a night has been shown to dramatically decrease human growth hormone levels. Sleeping at least 6 hours a day should be a top priority.
Quality of sleep is also important. There are a bunch of tactics you can use to improve your sleep quality. A couple simple ones: foam rolling for at least 10 minutes before bed, and avoiding screens for at least 30 minutes (ideally 2 hours) before bed.
Sleep and HGH levels are intertwined. If you improve one, you improve the other.
Fast in the Morning
Intermittent fasting is gaining more and more attention all over the health community. Even in the change-resistant mainstream medical tribe. There’s a good reason for this: intermittent fasting has been linked to numerous health benefits, the most impressive being the ability to help fight cancer.
Intermittent fasting has been shown to cause a 2,000 percent increase in HGH, according to researched published by cardiologists at the Intermountain Heart Institute.
Talk about a game-changer.
While you can choose any 8-hour window to eat, eating at night makes it much easier to follow through. The two most popular eating windows for my clients are noon to 8 PM and 2 PM to 10 PM.
Bottom line: If you can consistently fast for 16 consecutive hours a day, your HGH levels will skyrocket.
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are the building blocks of protein. Along with other essential amino acids, they provide vital nutrition to keep your body functioning properly.
Chances are you’re not getting enough BCAAs through diet alone. Even people who might be—like powerlifter and clincal researcher Dr. Dom D ‘agostino—still take a BCAA supplement daily.
A BCAA supplement can help optimally calibrate your hormone levels. This includes a natural increase in your HGH levels.
I use and recommend Xtend BCAAs. Xtend contains the added benefit of electrolytes. So it’s like your favorite sports drink—only good for you.
Take a serving of Xtend BCAAs before or during your workouts and watch your performance—and HGH—increase.
How you exercise can have a dramatic impact on your HGH. Long distance cardio, for instance, can actually cause your HGH levels to plummet.
Conversely, using the SlowGo system, as explained in Weight Lifting Essentials, can spike your human growth hormone. My system consists of a few key tenants:
- Form matters infinitely more than rep count
- Prioritize time-under-tension
- Use a moderately heavy weight, go ‘til muscular failure
- Fewer, more intense sets
Lifting heavy—in a safe, form-friendly fashion—and high intensity interval cardio are both great ways to increase your human growth hormone.
Use an HGH Supplement
The last and perhaps easiest way to increase your HGH levels is to use a topical HGH supplement.
Maybe you don’t have time to sleep more at this point in your life. Or maybe you’re not ready to make a drastic life change, like starting a new fitness routine. Maybe you’re using all 4 previous tactics and still not seeing the results you want.
I get it. The last reason perfectly describes me a few months ago. I was in a funk. Despite eating right and getting after it in the gym, my mood was pretty gloomy.
Then a close friend told me I should check out Somaderm gel. At first I was skeptical, but because this friend is a respected fitness professional, and because I knew something was missing, I decided to at least do some research.
My findings were impressive. Somaderm is the only FDA-registered transdermal HGH gel. It’s a safe, easy-to-use solution.
The results were amazing. Within a month I felt better, stronger, and more energetic. My physique improved as well. Friends and clients I’ve turned on to Somaderm (including my own mother!) have experienced similar results.
This exclusive product is distributed only by qualified professionals, including yours truly. It has the potential to transform every aspect of your life. I tell you this from personal experience.
If you’re interested in learning more about Somaderm, contact me. I’d be happy to further explain its benefits and tell you why I’m proud to endorse this game-changing product.
The closest thing we have to an actual fountain of youth is human growth hormone. When your body produces more of it, you look and feel younger.

Using any of these tactics can significantly raise your HGH levels.
