Doctor Oz: What is HGH?
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is found in the pea sized structure known as the pituitary gland at the base of your brain. You need HGH in order for your body to grow into adulthood. It is also essential to keep your muscles strong, your organs healthy and your energy up. Many doctors believe it is the key to the Fountain of Youth, but as you age your natural production of HGH drops.
Researchers developed a synthetic version of HGH, but there is a new frontier with the theory that you can encourage the production of HGH with amino acids. Recent studies have shown an increase in endurance and a faster metabolism in those given amino acids. Are amino acids the secret to boost your HGH and recharge your body?
Dr Oz HGH Natural Sources: Resistance Training & Deep Sleep
Resistance Training – Resistance basically means lifting weights, according to Leslie Bonci, who is the Director of Sports Nutrition at UPMC Center for Sports Medicine. She says the good news is that you don’t actually have to do it for a long time, just a few minutes a day, to reap the benefits. The key is to use actual weight or resistance bands.
Deep Sleep – Leslie Bonci says the key is getting eight hours of sleep a night, but the body actually produces more of the growth hormone in that first hour, so that means sound asleep. She emphasizes no exercise two hours before bed, no caffeine drinking past the afternoon, no eating two hours before going to bed, and a comfortable sleeping environment.

Human Growth Hormone: Amino Acid Supplements
Amino Acids – Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, found in sources like eggs, fish, meat, and poultry – even found in soy, nuts, and beans. It is critical to be taking amino acids into your body so they can also produce those growth hormones. Leslie says that if you are not getting enough amino acids naturally through your food, then you may need to consider taking a supplement.
