The Importance of Growth Hormone

Growth hormone is the master hormone produced from the Pituitary Gland; known as “the fountain of youth” or “the hormone of youth”. Growth hormone is essential to the growth of our body, especially for children and teenagers. Growth hormone controls the growth, as well as osteogenesis, regeneration, immunity, brain development, rejuvenation and even sexual performance. Hcowever, at the age of 30 this hormone secretion will be lessen by 40% from the age of 20. Unfortunately for some, there might be no hormone secretion at all. This would result in an imbalance and the weakening of our body causing us to get sick easier and start to age. Apart from the natural process, how we live our daily life also differentiates the hormone secretion.

For example, exercise and adequate sleep would result in the secretion of more hormones. Lack of sleep or daily exercise, overwork, or substance abuse lessens hormone secretion. This affects your ability to work, makes you feel fatigued and may advance osteoporosis, heart disease and stroke. These symptoms are also found in teenagers who lack of growth hormone. Medical scientists have found that growth hormone helps with anti-aging and the progress of disease. Growth hormone helps eliminate free radicals, restores brain and body function, enhances regeneration, and boosts the immune system to strengthen our body. Injection of growth hormone may only be done by doctors. Too much hormone causes certain diseases, such as diabetes and colonic cancer. Growth hormone that comes in a tablet or an insufflation (inhaling a powder or aerosol), it is considered to be a supplement and is different to that given by doctors.

There is also a safe and inexpensive way to increase the growth hormone level in your body. This is by stimulating the pituitary gland to naturally produce and secrete growth hormone more.

For example:
– Exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, 5-6 days per week.
– Adequate rest and sleep around the same time every day. From 10 pm to 2 am is the time that our bodies secrete growth hormone the most.
– Stress will lessen the level of growth hormone secretion and cause your body to age faster.
– Meditation will help adjust and restore the function of pituitary gland.
