5 proven ways to increase growth hormone naturally.

 Growth hormone or somatotropin, also known as human growth hormone in its human form, is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. It is thus essential to human development. -Wikipedia-

The GH hormone is also used in the bodybuilding domain because it is the one that helps us builds muscles and helps us recover from high-intensity workouts.

Therefore, we find some athletes who get hormone injections and take the synthetic Growth Hormone, but this one has many side effects on our body; we mention:

  • Nerve and muscle pain.
  • Swollen legs and fluid retention because growth hormone causes increased intestinal water absorption and sodium retention.
  • High cholesterol level in the blood.
  • Increased risk of heart disease.
  • Increased risk of diabetes because growth hormone interferes with the action of insulin and raises blood sugar levels.
  • Mood changes.
  • Numbness and tingling of the skin.
  • Breast enlargement in men.
  • Cancerous tumor growth.
  • Cardiac hypertrophy.
  • Feeling sick.
  • Liver cirrhosis.

We have a long and scary list, but there is no need to worry since we can help you increase the Growth Hormone levels naturally without needing synthetic Growth Hormone and all its scary side effects.

Let us walk through the article and learn the five ways we can use to increase the Growth Hormone naturally.

Sleep well at night.

Do you want to know why sleep is essential for increasing the GH hormone? You have to know something important first, what time is Growth Hormone produced in our body? 

It is released intermittently, approximately 6-10 times daily, and each period's production varies depending on several factors. The peak of it is during the night while you sleep.

Experts say: "we produce 75% of our daily hormone production at night when we are asleep" according to this, sleeping at night is very important for us. 

Therefore, I think no one would like to miss this period and spend it watching some movie or any Netflix series, so make sure to sleep well.

Control your insulin production.

Insulin, and although we need more studies to find out the final truth, however, many experts have linked the relationship between insulin and growth hormone as an inverse relationship.

The national center for biotechnology information posted a study that says that insulin can affect in both a wrong way and a good way on GH production. Still, since there is a bad result, we would like to avoid it rather than fall into it.

How can I limit my insulin production?

You can follow those easy steps and be able to achieve that.

• Intermittent fasting.

• Avoid all kinds of sugar.

• Reduce fat.

We already have an article about the effect of insulting on fat burn. You can find it here: What is the role of insulin in fat loss?

Do HIIT exercises.

High-intensity interval training is a kind of training that makes our heart and breathwork doubly to provide our body's oxygen and energy needs.

Researchers have linked it to the increase in Growth Hormone.

As Dr.Eric Berg mentioned in one of his videos, sprinting has a huge impact and helps us increase GH hormone levels to 771%. Such a vast increase, isn't it? The Video


Fasting and besides that helps reduce the insulting level, but it also helps us increase the Growth Hormone level.

And according to the US National Library of Medicine posted recherche, we can see that people that have fasted for five days in a row started noticing an increase in their GH hormone levels.

We must not forget the other benefits of fasting can count from them.

  • Reduce bad cholesterol in the blood.
  • Promoting mental health and improving our mood.
  • Boost our immune system.
  • It cleans the digestive system.
  • Help us burn fat.
  • Fasting regulates blood sugar levels.

It became clear why many religions adopt fasting, the most famous of which is Islam and Hinduism.

Just lose fat.

The relationship between fat and Growth hormone is a bit complicated because Growth hormone helps our body lose fat naturally.

Well, when we have a lot of fat in our bodies, we will not be able to produce a good amount of GH hormone, which means we will have to reduce our body fat % to 14% or 12% to get the best production.


I can tell you now that the fact that you're suffering from a low-growth hormone is a bad thing for you since it is the hormone that repairs our body and builds our muscles.

You must seek for the peak of it, try every natural way you can apply in yourself because the more it increases, the more result you will see in the gym.

Avoid hormone injections; you will get fast results, sure, but you will also suffer side effects that can destroy your life.
