Fasting, Youth Hormone and Weight Loss

Human Growth hormone (GH), also known as somatotropin], is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. It is thus important in human development.

Growth hormone fuels childhood growth and helps maintain tissues and organs throughout life. It's produced by the pea-sized pituitary gland — located at the base of the brain. Beginning in middle age, however, the pituitary gland slowly reduces the amount of growth hormone it produces.

HGH deficiency in adults typically leads to higher levels of body fat, lower lean body mass and decreased bone mass (osteopenia)

While there are artificial HGH for specific condition and to merely increase muscle mass, Intermittent fasting has the potential to unleash the anti-aging properties of HGH without any of the problems of excessive HGH

Improving Human Growth with intermittent fasting can:

  • Increase exercise capacity
  • Increase bone density
  • Increase muscle mass
  • Decrease body fat
During intermittent fasting (12+ hrs fasting), HGH has shown to increase as much as five times over. This hormone is produced by the pituitary gland, and increases glucose levels, and is therefore suppressed during feeding. Fasting is a great stimulus for secretion of HGH. This particular hormone is important for adults due to its anabolic effect and its ability to help muscles recover quickly.

Easy Intermittent fasting (If needed consult with your physician before starting fasting):
The easiest way to practice Intermittent Fasting Daily for the health benefits (not only for the initial weight loss) is:

  • Stop eating at no later than 8pm 
  • Drink Water, Tea or Black Coffee (no sugar or dairy added) 
  • Start Eating your first meal after 11am
