No one can deny the beneficial effects of the HGH (Human Growth Hormone), yet the respective hormone can be very harmful when supplements or injections are taken without actually following some safety standards and instructions. At the same time, it does pay off to make some changes into your lifestyle too. Such changes will naturally enhance the natural production of HGH, which is imperative to obtain the required results faster than normally. So what kind of changes should your make?
Try sleeping more
You may not be aware of it, but around 75% of your natural HGH production occurs while you sleep. From this point of view, sleep deserves a special treatment in your lifestyle. Make sure that you give yourself around 8 hours of sleep every night for the best results. Adjust your lifestyle accordingly. If you experience problems with such things, you can rely on a few simple tricks – specific foods to enhance sleep, physical activity to feel more tired, no caffeine (sodas, coffee or energy drinks) after 4PM and perhaps a cooling mask too.
Avoid eating a few hours before going to sleep
To a lot of people, dinner is served one or two hours before heading to sleep. This is a terrible mistake. They probably imagine that they might feel hungry overnight, which is only a misconception. Instead, try to have dinner at least 3 hours before heading to bed. If you go to sleep at 10PM, have dinner at 6PM. You will not feel hungry as you sleep, but when you wake up. Since the breakfast is supposed to be the most nutritive meal of the day, you will practically shoot two rabbits with one bullet. Eating so early implies keeping the levels of insulin at very low levels. The HGH production is reversely proportional with the insulin. The more insulin you have in your blood, the less HGH is produced and vice versa.
Insulin is not blood sugar
Most people do make a confusion between insulin and blood sugar, yet they are completely different. Keeping the blood sugar under control is mostly related to your body capability to burn fat and grow muscles. On the other hand, the insulin will be triggered by absolutely everything you eat. Generally speaking, the more protein you have, the more insulin you produce too. Learning how to differentiate these two elements can help you make wiser decisions regarding your diet in the future.
