HGH - Growth Hormone Enhancer for Youthful Vitality
By: Get Nutri
HGH (Human Growth Hormone) (also called somatotropin) is a hormone produced by the brain's pituitary gland, it controls muscle and bone growth and lowers the amount of fat in the body. HGH is the primary hormone responsible for growth in humans and it helps regulate metabolism. Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) and ghrelin (a hormone produced by the stomach) stimulate HGH release. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) is produced by the liver in response to HGH. Most of the growth promoting effects of growth hormone are due to the action of IGF-1. Human Growth Hormone is released primarily during slow wave sleep and in response to exercise. Many factors lead to variations in the amount of growth hormone released including levels of glucose, fatty acids level, levels of various neurotransmitters, hormones and amino acids.
HGH plays major role to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete IGF-1. IGF-1 stimulates the proliferation of chondrocytes (cartilage cells), resulting in bone growth. IGF-1 also appears to be the key player in muscle growth. It stimulates both the differentiation and proliferation of myoblasts. It also stimulates amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in muscle and other tissues.
Growth Hormone Release
Various amino acids have been tested for stimulating growth hormone release including arginine, ornithine, citrulline, glycine and lysine. Studies have shown that when these amino acids are taken orally they can stimulate secretion and release of HGH (Human Growth Hormone). HGH Surge includes a combination of these amino acids because research has shown that there is a synergy between many of them that maximizes their effect.
Fatty Acid Metabolism
Reducing fatty acid levels in the blood is associated with increased release of HGH. Acetyl L-carnitine and niacin are potent nutrients that help to metabolize fatty acids. Inositol hexanicotinate is a slow release form of niacin that does not produce a flushing response, and has been demonstrated to produce a significant reduction in fatty acid levels over the course of the entire night.

Lifestyle Tips for Growth Hormone Enhancement
Get plenty of sleep: Deep, uninterrupted sleep is needed for optimal HGH release. Also, try not to eat within 2 hours of bedtime so the body isn't digesting during sleep time.
Exercise Regularly: Studies show that HGH is released in response to exercise. Try to get 20-45 minutes of aerobic exercise at least 3 days a week.
