You will know the HGH precursors, homeopathic alternatives to synthetic HGH and also the lifestyle changes you must do that will also affect the natural HGH levels.
Introduction to HGH
As you may know, HGH is a protein-based polypeptide hormone that stimulates growth and cell reproduction and regeneration in human beings. HGH is used in different medical conditions and used by athletes to enhance their athletic capability since 1970. As of now there are no known negative side effects of HGH, according to medical aspect but they generally believe that there is an increased risk to diabetes and cancer, swelling of the joints, joint pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Besides the fact HGH is being used to improve athletic performance among athletes, it is also believed that it can slow down the aging process of an individual by enhancing the immune system and by increasing metabolism. Due to the side effects as mentioned above, you may want to consider the possible alternatives to HGH injection that can also enhance the body’s ability to create and sustain HGH production.
Possible Alternatives to HGH
There are HGH supplements available in the market that can help the body produce HGH. These products are referred to as “precursors” because their primary concern is to help the body stimulate its own HGH production.
There are two factors involved with these products that make it hard to deal with. First, the body should be able to continue in producing HGH. The production level may vary from one individual to another and there is no guarantee that these HGH precursors can stimulate hormone production. The second thing is there are many products being sold in the market that claim they are HGH precursors. In this case, it is hard to distinguish which actually works and which does not.
Homeopathic remedies like HGH precursors are said to increase natural hormone levels. However, some arguments exist whether or not the time and money spent for these remedies are worth enough. The main purpose of homeopathic HGH remedies is to stimulate the master gland to increase natural HGH production. The process of balancing HGH production is known as homeostasis. Likewise, there are plenty of products that claim to raise HGH levels through homeopathic processes being sold in the market making it difficult to find one that is really effective.
The last one that can be used as an alternative to HGH injections is changing your lifestyle. According to Ken Kashubara who is an expert of health, fitness and nutrition, the body never loses the ability to produce high levels of HGH. What one needs is to exercise at least 6 days a week to naturally increase HGH levels. A combination of cardiovascular exercises, weight training and stretching stimulate HGH production. Kashubara also mentioned that one must rest at least 30-45 seconds in between sets when training with weights. This is a natural way of keeping HGH levels high.
At the same time, a proper diet and rest is also important. To know whether this lifestyle changes really work as a natural method to keep your HGH level, why not try to check your HGH levels before starting a lifestyle change regimen, then after 6 months to one year, check your HGH levels again if there is any improvement. The increase of HGH level depends on your fitness level and it may occur quickly that results can be noticeable at once.
Since there are possible side effects of HGH injections, why not try the above mentioned alternatives to HGH which can be a natural means of producing hormones. Though they can be successful through trial and error, you can be sure that your body can be less in danger because of less harm from side effects from these alternatives.
