What guy trying to build muscle doesn’t want to maximize the amount of human growth hormone that he is producing? Ladies, growth hormone isn’t just for men. Growth hormone plays a vital role in many bodily processes and helps to boost your recovery after your yoga or kickboxing classes. When you want to make sure that your body has healthy levels of growth hormone, you don’t need to turn to illegal substances. Let’s review 4 easy ways you can naturally boost your growth hormone levels.
Most commonly known as H.I.I.T., high intensity interval exercise is one of the best ways to burn fat, build muscle, and promote growth hormone production. Studies show that subjects who performed H.I.I.T. had higher levels of growth hormones than those who did not.

As an athlete or avid fitness enthusiast, have you ever wondered why so many experts stress that you must get into the routine of healthy sleeping patterns?
Sleep is where all the magic happens. It’s when your body does repairs and recovers. Most importantly, it is when your body releases its highest amounts of human growth hormone. During your deep sleep cycles, your body releases growth hormone in gigantic quantities. Skip on sleep and you skip on getting the growth hormone you need. Aim for the standard 7 to 8 hours each night.
This has become one of the biggest fitness trends since the Atkins Diet. Intermittent Fasting holds many benefits, one of which is the increase in growth hormone production. If you want to try to fast, we recommend trying the 16 hour fast. Eat your last meal before 8 p.m. Don’t eat again until 12 p.m. the following day. Water, tea, black coffee and calorie free drinks are okay.
The easiest way to boost your growth hormone levels is to simply wear a suit… a sauna suit.
The Kutting Weight sauna suit captures the same benefits as a real sauna at a fraction of the price and it’s far more convenient. Studies show that when you wear the neoprene sauna suit as directed, you can tap into the proven benefits of growth hormone amplification. Dr. Rhonda Patrick reviewed several studies and determined that those exposing themselves to a sauna-like environment saw an increase in the amount of growth hormone their bodies produced.
The sauna suit is also an excellent way to stay in shape, lose weight, and boost your endurance.
