Because HGH increases metabolism, individuals can eat more and still not run the risk of gaining weight. - See more at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/hgh-helps-you-build-muscle-use-hgh-for

How Should You Take Somatropinne HGH?

Perhaps you are committed to a Somatropinne HGH 3 month supply and now you need to know how to take the pills that you have purchased. It is best read and follow the following tips:

  •     Always read the directions on the bottle for the most recent instructions.
  •     In the morning, take a single capsule.
  •     It is best to take the capsule with a healthy breakfast, not just with coffee.
  •     At night, take a second capsule. Again, taking it with food is recommended.
  •     Continue this every day for three months or more.

Human growth hormone treatment can be powerful and effective. It can increase muscle mass, burn adipose tissue, and cause you to feel healthy and awake. However, make sure that you give Somatropinne HGH enough time to work or you will not see the results you want. - See more at: http://www.hgh.com/blogger/post/how-to-best-take-somatropinne-hgh

A Quick Read on Why HGH is so Important... 

There is a reason why a multi-million dollar industry has developed around human growth hormone and human growth hormone therapy treatments. Everyone needs this important hormone in their body and at sufficient levels. Otherwise, they will begin to experience ill health effects.

L-Glycine Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient L-Glycine, or Aminoacetic Acid

Glycine – also known as L-glycine, aminoacetic acid or aminoethanoic acid – is the smallest of the 20 amino acids in the human body. It is considered a nonessential or conditionally essential amino acid, which means that it is normally produced by the body in sufficient amounts; however, dietary supplementation may be beneficial in times of illness or stress, or for the treatment of certain diseases. L-glycine is found in some food sources as well as in health and bodybuilding supplements such as HGF-MAX, HGH 30,000 Nanograms pills and spray, and whey protein mixes.

Functions of L-Glycine

As an amino acid, glycine is involved in protein synthesis. It appears to work in concert with L-glutamine to improve brain function, and it is one of three amino acids – along with proline and hydroxyproline – that make up the triple-helical structure of collagen. Evidence also suggests that L-glycine may stimulate human growth hormone (HGH) production, acting as a natural HGH releaser.

Sources of L-Glycine

The body manufactures glycine using another amino acid called serine. Dietary sources of l-glycine include protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, dairy and legumes. L-glycine may also be consumed as an ingredient within natural dietary supplements.

L-Glycine Benefits and Uses

Therapeutic uses of L-glycine include the treatment of schizophrenia, stroke and leg ulcers. It also appears to enhance wound healing, and may help protect the liver and kidneys from the harmful effects of certain chemicals. Evidence suggests that L-glycine functions a natural HGH releaser, or HGH secretagogue; as a result, it may have a beneficial effect on athletic performance, such as helping to build muscle and increase endurance.

Side Effects of L-Glycine and Potential Interactions

L-glycine supplements are generally considered safe for adults; no serious side effects have been reported, even at doses as high as 60 grams per day. A small number of people have experienced stomach upset, nausea or vomiting, which ceased as soon as L-glycine supplementation was discontinued.

While L-glycine appears to enhance the beneficial effects of most drugs used to treat schizophrenia, it has been shown to decrease the effectiveness of one particular antipsychotic drug known as clozapine (Clozaril). Patients taking clozapine should avoid L-glycine supplementation.

More detailed safety information on L-glycine side effects and interactions can be found on the NYU Langone Medical Center website. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing L-glycine.

L-Glycine Research and Studies

In addition to research on the use of glycine to treat medical conditions such as schizophrenia and strokes, a number of studies have explored the impact of L-glycine on HGH secretion. One such study published in Acta Endocrinologica found that intravenous glycine infusions produced a significant increase in serum HGH levels. Another study cited in Nutritional Neuroscience indicated that an oral supplement containing glycine, glutamine and niacin increased HGH secretion in healthy middle-aged and elderly subjects. In Nutrients as Ergogenic Aids for Sports and Exercise, the author conducted a research review and summarized his findings; he noted that a number of studies concur that glycine appears to stimulate HGH release and promote creatine synthesis, which can be beneficial for athletes undergoing progressive weight training.

Several other studies have examined the effects of L-glycine supplementation in relation to athletic performance and recovery. In Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, researchers found that an oral treatment of glycine and L-arginine salt of alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium (GAKIC) increased muscle torque and work sustained during intense acute anaerobic dynamic exercise, and enhanced overall muscle performance by delaying muscle fatigue during the early phases of anaerobic dynamic exercise. A recent animal study featured in Connective Tissue Research explored the effects of green tea and glycine on tendinitis, which commonly afflicts athletes, and determined that a green tea and glycine diet has beneficial effects that aid in the recovery process of the tendon after tendinitis.

For additional L-glycine research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

HGH.com Supplements With L-Glycine

Athletes, bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts can experience the beneficial effects of L-glycine for themselves with natural HGH releasers and bodybuilding supplements from HGH.com:

How to Increase HGH Levels Naturally

Top 7 Ways to Naturally Boost Your Body’s Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Levels

By Dan Smith of HGH.com

In recent years, I’ve seen a growing level of interest in how to increase HGH levels naturally, particularly among bodybuilders and athletes. Given the controversy and issues associated with synthetic HGH injections, many people are seeking out natural ways to increase their body’s own production of HGH. This is something that I do myself, and it’s a topic I’ve often discussed with our HGH.com-sponsored athletes – IFBB pros Tricky Jackson, Ben White and Tara Silzer. So I decided to compile our top tips in one blog post, which highlights seven effective ways to naturally boost HGH levels.

HGH Basics and Functions

Before I get into our recommendations, let’s start with a quick review of the basics. Human growth hormone, also known as HGH, is a type of polypeptide hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. As the name implies, HGH triggers growth and repair of bone, cartilage, tissue and muscle. It also helps to improve body composition by increasing muscle mass and metabolizing fat. The pituitary gland produces its highest quantities of HGH during childhood and puberty to support the body’s growth and development. Once a child has reached full adult height, HGH production decreases substantially. In adulthood, HGH tends to be secreted in smaller bursts at specific times – during sleep, after exercise and in response to bodily stress or trauma.

Top 7 Ways to Naturally Increase HGH Levels

While the body generally follows its own set patterns for HGH secretion after puberty, there are a number of proven methods for boosting production on an ongoing basis:

1. Seek alternatives to synthetic HGH injections. While injectable growth hormones have been shown to increase HGH levels, there are a number of issues associated with this practice – including the high cost of injections as well as the fact that they are illegal without a prescription. Another lesser-known caveat is that pumping the body with high levels of artificial growth hormones may actually cause the body to decrease production of its own natural HGH. So, in the long run, it’s better to find natural ways to stimulate increased HGH secretion.

2. Get enough sleep. Since the majority of HGH production in adults occurs overnight during slow-wave sleep (or “deep” sleep), it is essential to get sufficient high-quality sleep – ideally, 7 to 8 hours per night. To help elevate HGH levels, try to adhere to a regular sleep routine: go to bed at the same time every evening and wake up at the same time each morning. It’s also important to have uninterrupted sleep, so avoid consuming alcohol or caffeine before bedtime, as they can interfere with normal sleep patterns. Try to minimize light and noise to avoid interruptions to your sleep schedule, and keep your bedroom at a comfortable temperature so that you don’t awake in the middle of the night shivering or sweating.

3. Adhere to a healthy diet. There is an inverse relationship between insulin and HGH – higher levels of insulin suppress HGH production. Therefore, it is critical to consume the right foods at the right time to regulate insulin levels and promote HGH release. Many experts recommend eating multiple small meals over the course of the day, and the majority agree that it is best to limit your intake of highly processed, complex carbohydrates (like white bread and white rice) as well as sugary food and beverages (including soda and sports drinks made with high-fructose corn syrup), as these can trigger a spike in insulin.

Your best bet is to build your diet around high-fiber, protein-rich foods, such as vegetables, fruits, nuts and beans/legumes. Opt for low-glycemic, slow-digesting carbohydrates like oatmeal, pears, apples, sweet potatoes and brown rice. To help minimize insulin secretion, try eating a low-carb, high-protein snack a few hours before bedtime – think nuts like almonds, pistachios and walnuts; pumpkin or sunflower seeds; edamame; hummus; yogurt; or cottage cheese.

4. Engage in high-intensity interval training. While proper sleep and nutrition are both effective ways to support a natural increase in HGH levels, exercise also plays a critical role. Many different types of exercise can help maintain a healthy body and regulate insulin levels, but high-intensity interval training in particular has the potential to naturally boost HGH levels. This occurs in direct response to the stress on your muscles, signaling the pituitary gland to secrete more HGH to repair the tissue. Several studies have examined the effects of this exercise-induced growth hormone response (EIGR) and determined the associated benefits.

5. Consume whey protein before and after exercise. Research has shown that consuming a rapidly absorbed protein, such as whey protein, may help promote optimal muscle building after resistance exercise. Another study found that consuming whey protein half an hour before resistance training can accelerate metabolism not only during exercise, but up to 24 hours after a workout. HGH.com offers several high-quality whey protein mixes designed to enhance muscularity and stimulate HGH production, including CytoSport Vanilla Whey Protein, Elite Chocolate Mint Whey Protein, Elite Butter Toffee Whey Protein, IsoBolic Vanilla Whey Protein and Multi-Pro Chocolate Whey Protein.

6. Practice occasional fasting. A healthy diet is vital to provide the energy you need to complete intense workouts. However, some studies have suggested that intermittent fasting may be an effective way to balance blood-sugar levels and trigger HGH release. If your workout schedule allows for it, you might want to try periodic fasting on any off days in your training.

7. Add natural HGH releasers to your dietary supplements. Unlike injectable HGH, which introduces synthetic chemicals into your system, natural HGH releasers stimulate your body to produce more of its own HGH. Look for HGH supplements that contain proven natural ingredients, such as L-arginine, L-glutamine, L-leucine, L-tyrosine, bovine colostrum and others. You’ll find many of these naturally derived ingredients in Purity Select health and bodybuilding supplements from HGH.com, including HGH 30,000 Pills, HGH 30,000 Spray, Somatropinne HGH, DBol-GH, Ana-GH and HGH Testosterone Plus.

Following these recommendations will help you increase HGH levels naturally and in a healthy way while also enabling you to attain peak physical condition. Are there any other tips and best practices you implement to boost your HGH production? We invite you to join the conversation and post your comments below!

Whey Protein Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions

Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Whey Protein

Whey protein and casein are the two major types of proteins in milk. While casein is digested more slowly, whey is a quickly and easily digested source of protein. It contains essential amino acids, including branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and its amino-acid profile is similar to that of human skeletal muscle. While whey protein is naturally found in dairy products, it is also available in a more concentrated form in dietary supplements. These include health and bodybuilding supplements such as CytoSport, IsoBolic, Multi-Pro and Elite whey protein powders.

Functions of Whey Protein

Protein contributes to the growth, development and repair of human tissue, so consuming whey protein can help to support these functions. The amino acids contained in whey protein play a critical role in regulating protein metabolism, and are believed to aid the body in transitioning from a catabolic state to an anabolic state following exercise. Furthermore, studies have suggested that whey protein may decrease fat stores in the body and increase feelings of satiety (fullness), thereby helping to regulate weight and body composition.

Sources of Whey Protein

Dairy products are a natural source of whey protein, which separates from milk during the cheese-making process. Among food sources, ricotta cheese contains the highest levels of whey protein; however, it can also be found in milk, yogurt and other cheeses. When whey protein is extracted and processed for use in natural dietary supplements, it can take one of several forms, including whey powder, whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate. Of these, whey protein isolate contains the highest protein content, followed by whey protein concentrate and then whey powder.

Whey Protein Benefits and Uses

Consuming whey protein elevates the body’s overall levels of protein and essential amino acids, which help to maintain human skeletal muscles. As a result, whey protein is a popular ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, where it is used to increase muscle mass and strength as well as improve athletic performance. Because whey protein appears to decrease fat stores and create feelings of fullness, it is also used as an appetite suppressant and may be included as an ingredient in weight-loss supplements.

Another benefit of whey protein is its ability to lower blood-sugar levels, which may be helpful for individuals with milder cases of diabetes that can be controlled with proper diet and exercise. Whey protein is also used as an ingredient in baby formulas because it is an easily digested form of protein and provides important nutrients needed for growth and development. There are many other purported uses of whey protein – ranging from acid reflux to chronic lung conditions to psoriasis – though evidence in these areas is currently inconclusive.

Side Effects of Whey Protein and Potential Interactions

Whey protein is generally considered safe for most adults; users should follow the recommended dosage and directions listed on dietary supplements. Those who are lactose intolerant or have a known sensitivity to milk may find that some whey protein formulas can cause similar symptoms, such as bloating, cramps, diarrhea or nausea. When taken in high doses, whey protein may cause headaches, fatigue or thirst in some people.

Individuals taking certain types of medication should be aware of potential interactions. Whey protein may decrease the absorption of levodopa, alendronate and some antibiotics (including quinolone, fluoroquinolone and tetracycline). Since whey protein has been shown to lower blood-glucose levels, it can cause hypoglycemia when it is taken in combination with diabetes medications. When whey protein is taken in combination with blood thinners, it may increase the risk of bleeding.

More detailed safety information on whey protein side effects and interactions can be found on the Mayo Clinic website. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing whey protein.

Whey Protein Research and Studies

Numerous studies have examined the effects of whey protein on muscle mass, muscle recovery, athletic performance and body composition. For example, recent animal studies published in the journals Nutrition and Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that resistance exercise combined with whey protein led to significant muscle weight increases in rats and that whey protein supplementation improved exercise performance, body composition and biochemical assessments in mice.

Human trials also support the use of whey protein for post-exercise recovery and improved body composition. Research published in Amino Acids determined that whey protein may accelerate the muscle regeneration/remodeling process after high-intensity exercise, while the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism reported that whey protein supplements taken by runners facilitated their recovery from strenuous training. In the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, researchers analyzed 14 randomized, controlled trials on generally healthy adults and found that whey protein supplements – either combined with resistance exercise or as part of a weight-loss or weight-maintenance diet – improved body composition parameters.

In addition, research findings suggest that whey protein supplements are beneficial for overweight and diabetic individuals. In the Journal of Applied Physiology, researchers studied overweight/obese adults who consumed whey protein supplements either with or without exercise and found that all of them lost body weight, fat mass and abdominal fat. Among those test subjects, the group that took whey protein supplements in combination with a multimode exercise training program lost significantly more body weight and gained a greater percentage of lean body mass. An article published in Diabetologia examined the impact of whey protein on diabetics, and determined that taking whey protein before breakfast helped to increase insulin levels and decrease glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes. For additional whey protein research reports, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
