Constantly tired? Can’t sleep?

Then keep reading, and learn how to defeat these health robbers

No question about it. Many Americans suffer from an endless cycle of having to do more and more with less and less sleep and rest…with devastating consequences to their health. Going through life constantly fatigued is no fun. Moods plummet, productivity suffers, and the quality of life is miserable for those who have sleep problems and are always tired.

Keep reading and discover a few common causes of why this is such a problem, and more important, what you can do about it.

The importance of sleep

overcome fatigue by learning about sleeping disordersThe number one cause of fatigue is a lack of sleep. This is admittedly in the “DUH” category. But as obvious as it may seem, all too many people neglect sleep, much to their detriment. As little as three hours’ sleep loss has been determined to result in a 50% reduction in the immune system’s efficiency. Also, uninterrupted sleep is the key to fighting fatigue. Research has shown that by interrupting deep sleep over several nights, subjects developed the classic symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Here’s why you should make sleep an important priority in your good health plan.

Consider this analogy from your neighborhood movie theater. When the film is rolling, and the show is packed full of people, the floor becomes a mess. Spilled popcorn, discarded candy wrappers, and empty soda cups are tossed to the floor. Naturally, the floor becomes a total pigsty. But it is impossible for the ushers to do anything about it as long as the movie is playing. However, when the movie is over, and the viewers leave, the ushers can go to work and sweep away all of the trash.

Researchers have proved how important sleep is, and the vital functions it accomplishes. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, they have discovered that during sleep our brains sweep away a type of toxic detritus that builds up while we are awake. This nasty stuff has been associated with the formation of Alzheimer’s disease and other brain disorders.

In another study using sleeping mice, scientists observed that the flow of cerebrospinal fluid had a massive increase, which removed harmful toxins that had built up throughout the day. They also noted that the brain cells shrank, allowing for more fluid to move throughout the brain, removing the waste products. One of the substances removed was beta-amyloid, which is a harmful, sticky plaque associated with Alzheimer’s.

The biggest implication of the study, assuming that the same toxin-removal process occurs in humans as well, is that insufficient sleep could increase the likelihood of Alzheimer’s later in life.

The important thing to remember is this: the cleaning and sweeping process that happens during sleep change the cellular structure of the brain similarly as the movie analogy. So, in addition to helping us think better, keep our blood sugar in check, build muscle tissue and releasing growth hormone, a good night’s sleep may be our first line of defense from the feared, hideous Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

So what steps can you take to get more sleep? For starters, be aware of sleep’s importance, and make it a conscious priority to get seven to eight hours per night. Keep a regular sleep schedule, make sure that your bedroom is dark, calm your mind by telling yourself that your problems will be dealt with tomorrow and watch your beverage intake at night, especially caffeine and alcohol. Also, you could also consider melatonin supplementation.

What is melatonin?

Melatonin helps with sleepingMelatonin is secreted by the pineal gland from deep inside the brain. Melatonin is derived from the amino acid L-tryptophan, and its molecular structure gives it incredible anti-oxidant capabilities. The biggest influence on melatonin is light, which suppresses the secretion of melatonin. Darkness has the opposite effect by signaling the pineal gland to release the hormone.

The pineal gland does not produce melatonin during daylight hours. But at night, the suprachiasmatic nucleus stops receiving sufficient light signal. This tells the pineal gland to start producing melatonin.

When melatonin is produced, it enters the blood stream and immediately begins to circulate. Once the pineal begins to secrete melatonin, it will continue to do so until the first light of dawn, when the levels of melatonin drop, and this encourages wakefulness.

The key thing to remember is this: it is not just time that is the only consideration for melatonin release. Even if it is night, if there is light, the pineal gland will be active, but no melatonin will be disseminated. This is why it is of vital importance to sleep in total darkness, with no television, computers, cell phones, or glowing clocks in the bedroom.

The regular cycles of melatonin production and release tend to slow down, due to several causes: aging, medications, and exposure to light in the evening. The potential health consequences appear to be devastating. In fact, some scientists have suggested that years of working the night shift can lead to several harmful effects, even cancer.

This is why melatonin supplements are worth their weight in gold. Supplements of melatonin can regain the body’s circadian rhythm in balance, which is the key to melatonin’s ability to deliver deep, restorative sleep….and several other benefits. This is especially important to older people since the production of melatonin declines with age. This leaves older folks with less protection from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke.

The bottom line? If you are having trouble falling asleep, consider giving melatonin a try.

Dehydration – a hidden cause of insomnia

It’s a simple equation. The more you are dehydrated, the harder it is for your body to recharge and detoxify. The longer it takes to detoxify, the more sleep your require. Dehydration can adversely affect your ability to sleep, thus resulting in a vicious circle.

overcoming sleeping problemsMost people know that they should stay hydrated during waking hours. But your body needs to stay hydrated during sleep. Also, research indicates that dehydration may cause your mind to be over-active. This can result in you having trouble getting to sleep.

Dehydration…a hidden cause of fatigue

When we are dehydrated, our internal cleansing system can’t work anywhere nearly as efficiently as it should, which overloads our organs and increases their workload. The result? Feeling tired. Most of our bodily functions operate best when they are in proper fluid balance. In fact, minute changes in fluid balance can affect us far out of proportion to what we may think.

If our fluid balance doesn’t return to right levels, our blood volume can drop. This makes our heart work harder, which causes the heart to draw blood from the muscles and organs. The result? Muscle cramps, light-headedness…and fatigue.

Finally, there is one more thing to consider. Dehydration causes poor digestion. This causes the digestive system to work harder, resulting in…(drum roll)…FATIGUE!

Other causes of fatigue and trouble getting to sleep

  • Sleep apnea. This condition briefly stops your breathing during the night, which disrupts your sleep for a quick moment, even though you are usually not aware of it. The result? You guessed it…fatigue the next day. The solution is to lose weight, stop smoking and consider obtaining a CPAP device that will keep your air passages open during sleep.
  • Eating habits. Eating too little and eating the wrong foods can wreak havoc on your blood sugar level, which will make you feel sluggish. Make sure you are eating breakfast and load up on protein and complex carbs at each meal.
  • Anemia. This is a particularly common cause of fatigue with women. Low red blood cells lost to menstruation can rob a woman of iron, which creates an oxygen deficit, which causes fatigue. If you have this condition, iron-rich foods such as liver, lean meat, beans and enriched cereal can be combined with iron supplements to attack the problem.
  • Depression. This is all-too-often overlooked, but it shouldn’t be since it can contribute to fatigue. If you can’t improve on your own, consider obtaining professional help.
  • Hypothyroidism. The thyroid rules your metabolism, which is how fast your body converts food into energy. When it is under-active, and your metabolism slows down, you can feel tired and start gaining unneeded weight. If a blood test discovers that your thyroid hormones are low, synthetic hormones can work wonders.
  • Hidden Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). This affliction can be painfully obvious. But it may be hidden as well, with fatigue as the only symptom. Check for it, and the right news is this: antibiotics can usually return you to normal within a week.
  • Diabetes. Add fatigue to another one of the parades of horrors that this disease brings. Too much sugar remains in the bloodstream instead of going into the cells, where it would convert into energy. If you are pre-diabetic, make immediate changes in nutrition and exercise. If that fails, consider insulin therapy and medications.
  • Heart Disease. If your stamina is not what it used to be, and fatigue is almost constant, check with you doctor about heart disease. Lifestyle changes and medication can right the ship.
  • Shift Work. Working nights or rotating is another factor that can knock your internal clock out of whack. You may be fatigued when you need to work and be awake when you need to sleep. Try to sleep in as dark room as possible, even if it is during the day. And don’t forget melatonin.
  • Food Allergies. Believe it or not, this cause of fatigue is another thing that is often overlooked but can be the culprit for your feeling tired. If you are always tired after meals, maybe it is something you are eating on a regular basis. Try to eliminate foods one at a time and see how you feel. Also, consider a food allergy test.
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia. Last but certainly not least, these twin demons can cause fatigue that lasts more than six months and can make your daily activities seem like you are walking around with 50-pound weights attached to your ankles and a 100-pound weighted vest. Consider professional help if you cannot see improvement on your own.
  • Medications. Make sure you read the label on any prescription or over-the-counter drug you take; it may contain caffeine. These substances can also cause internal changes in your body’s mechanism that play key roles in sleep. Here is a list of drugs and supplements that may interfere with your ability to fall and stay asleep: beta-blockers, alpha-blockers, corticosteroids, anti-depressants, statins, Alzheimer’s and dementia drugs, ACE inhibitors, allergy medicines, and joint pain supplements glucosamine and chondroitin. There is more than a bit of irony about this problem: insomnia aggravates many of these same conditions that these substances treat! This is, sadly, the beginning of a vicious cycle of additional drug use, more side effects, and more insomnia.
  • Bad bacteria in your gut. Parasites residing in your digestive system could be the culprit keeping you awake. These creatures are often most active in the early morning hours of 3 to 4 a.m. To prevent parasites from gaining a foothold, pay strict attention to eating gut-friendly foods (kefir, Sauerkraut, yogurt) to increase the good bacteria residing in your gut, and consider supplementing with both probiotics and prebiotics. Some researchers feel the link between the brain and the gut is so strong that the gut is often referred to as “the second brain.” This guarantees that digestive distress will wreak havoc on your sleep, so do all you can to prevent it.

Remember this: we are constantly reminded of the importance of correct nutrition and exercise…with good reason. We are what we eat, and staying glued to the couch or recliner is a guaranteed ticket to an early sleep with the worms. But the formula is not a duet. It is a tripod, with sleep being vital if an often neglected member of the team.

The final thought is this. Here is the perfect excuse to get more sleep: “I’m sorry; I have to get enough sleep tonight, so I don’t get Alzheimer’s.”


Female Hormone Blood Panel

Fully Comprehensive Female Blood Testing Battery

  1. TSH Free T4. T4 is the primary hormone produced by the thyroid gland. Its function is to navigate through the blood to particular targeted cells, then convert to triiodothyronine (T3). T4 is not as active as T3. A good analogy is this: T4 delivers the instructions from the thyroid, then T3 gets to work to carry out the mission. However, you need both T-3 and T-4 at optimum levels
  2. Complete Blood Count With Differential/Platelet  Comp. This test screens for anemia, and can also detect infections. The CBC covers everything related to your blood: both red and white blood cells, platelet levels, hematocrit, and hemoglobin.
  3. Metabolic Panel. The metabolic panel test is a crucial, comprehensive blood test. This test acts as an early warning system for severe diseases such as liver disease, kidney disease, and diabetes. The metabolic panel test also measures essential electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride, and CO2 (carbon dioxide and bicarbonate) and proteins (albumin and total protein).
  4. Cortisol. Cortisol is the so-called “stress hormone.” As the name implies, stressful situations result in a blast of cortisol. This release served us well in caveman times when we had to go into “fight-or-flight” mode in a second to avoid a Saber-toothed tiger or battle another tribe. But we are not designed to deal with traffic jams, constant lack of sleep, demanding bosses and annoying co-workers and the constant noise of contemporary society. Excess levels of cortisol result in a broad range of adverse health consequences, some potentially severe. If your levels are in the danger zone, treatment may be needed.
  5. DHEA Sulfate. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is commonly and mistakenly thought to be a male hormone. But that’s wrong. Both men and women produce DHEA. Like so many hormones that play a vital role in our health, DHEA begins to drop around age 30 at a rate of approximately 10% per year. Too little DHEA can deplete our energy and cause weight-gain. However, too much DHEA in women can result in a host of unwanted issues: excess hair growth, irregular periods, and fertility problems. The key idea here is a balance.
  6. Estradiol. This test is just like it sounds: a measurement of the estradiol levels in your blood. Why is this important? Because Estradiol is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries and plays several vital roles in a woman’s internal body processes. Estradiol can help to ease the symptoms of menopause (Vaginal dryness, hot flashes, weight gain) and provide protection from osteoporosis.
  7. Ferritin, Serum. The Ferritin Serum test checks your iron levels by measuring the amount of ferritin in your bloodstream. Ferritin is a blood cell protein that stores iron.  If your levels are too high or too low, further testing will be required to determine the cause.
  8. FSH, LH. The Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and the luteinizing hormone (LH) all play a role in the menopause puzzle and the menstrual cycle. The LH blood test measures the amount of luteinizing hormone in your blood and is helpful in dealing fertility issues and menstrual problems. An FSH test is given for the same reasons as the LH test.
  9. Hemoglobin A1C. The hemoglobin A1C test measures your blood sugar levels over the last 2-3 months and is an excellent diabetes screen.
  10. Insulin Growth factor-1 (IGF-1). The IGF-1 test measures the amount of insulin-like growth factor in your blood. IGF-1 plays a critical role in controlling the function of human growth hormone. This test provides valuable information on your current levels of growth hormone.
  11. Fasting Insulin Level Test. The fasting insulin level test is a useful tool in the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome and prediabetes.
  12. Lipid Panel With LDL/HDL Ratio. The lipid panel with LDL/HDL ratio test is a comprehensive cholesterol test that measures the proportion of the “good cholesterol” HDL and the “bad cholesterol” LDL. The levels of both these cholesterol types are reliable predictors of heart attacks.
  13. Pregnenolone. A pregnenolone blood test can help diagnose deficiencies of other hormones or enzymes. Researchers have concluded that pregnenolone is so essential to our continued good health that it is often referred to as “The Mother Hormone.” Without this “mother hormone,” your body could not manufacture other vital hormones. Your pregnenolone levels can also help detect rare forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH).
  14. Progesterone test. The progesterone test measures the amount of the hormone progesterone in the blood. The test is administered to determine the cause of infertility or detect problems with the adrenal glands or various types of cancer.
  15. Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) test. The sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) measures the levels of SHBG in your blood. This test is given in conjunction with a total testosterone level test to determine if your levels of testosterone are abnormal (high or low).
  16. Testosterone Free and Total. The testosterone free and total test measures both “free” and “bound” testosterone. A little-known fact is that most of the testosterone circulating in the body is bound to proteins in the blood (SHBG and albumin)…as much as 96%. That leaves as little as 4% of the body’s testosterone circulating as beneficial free testosterone. This condition must be addressed to ensure you receive maximum benefit from hormone replacement therapy.
  17. Thyroid Panel with TSH. When testing for thyroid functioning, physicians start with TSH. If the TSH number is high, it is an indication that the thyroid gland is working harder than normal, to maintain the correct level of thyroid hormone. In the worst case scenario, this could be a precursor to a heart attack or other types of coronary artery problems called sub-clinical hypothyroidism (SCH).
  18. Triiodothyronine, Free, Serum. As mentioned in point number 1, T-3 (triiodothyronine) is the key to the health of your thyroid. The tri-iodothyronine, free, serum test measures the level of T-3 circulating in your body.

An Introduction to Nootropics

 An Introduction to Nootropics

      The word Nootropics is from the Greek words nous, or “mind,” and trepein meaning “to bend/turn”. Nootropics are also referred to as smart drugs, memory enhancers, neuro enhancers, cognitive enhancers, and intelligence enhancers, are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals and certain foods that have shown the potential to improve mental functions such as cognition, memory, intelligence, motivation, attention, and concentration.

    The term nootropic was invented in 1972 by Corneliu Giurgea, a Romanian psychologist, and chemist. According to Giurgea, nootropic substances should have the following characteristics:

  1. They should enhance learning and memory.

 2. They should improve the resistance of learned behaviors/conditions which tend to disrupt them.

 3. They should protect the brain against various physical or chemical injuries.

 4. They should increase the efficacy of tonic cortical/subcortical control mechanisms.

 5. They should lack the usual pharmacology of other psychotropic drugs, and possess very few side effects and extremely low toxicity.

 Are Nootropics for you?

      Perhaps. If you have an interest in any of these areas…

  • Increasing your alertness and energy levels.

  • Improving your memory.

  • Increasing your IQ.

  • Develop greater clarity of thought and sensory awareness.

  • Fight Alzheimer’s disease, and possibly slow the aging process.

  • Perform better on the job, in school, or anywhere else where your intelligence is critical.

  • Light a fire in your libido.

  • Improve your concentration and problem-solving abilities.


     And you would like to know more, then the topic of nootropics is something you should learn more about. But before you begin, let’s take a brief look at how nootropics work, the right way to start, the right dosage and potential side effects.


 How nootropics work

  • Increase synaptic receptors and organic molecule production. Many nootropics work by increasing the production of acetylcholine and glutamate in the brain. Acetylcholine is an organic molecule that acts as a neurotransmitter and works directly with the central and peripheral nervous systems. Increasing the production of acetylcholine has been shown to improve our brain’s ability to concentrate and make our decisions far more logically. Glutamate is an amino acid that plays a vital role in memory formation.

  • Increased brain flexibility.Another theory states that nootropics can ease communication at cortical synapses that use glutamate as a neurotransmitter. This promotes plasticity at the synapse, resulting in better cognitive performance. In plain English, this means that the brain’s nerve cells can pass electrical or chemical signals to each other, quickly and accurately. Aging slows this process down, and nootropics can help the cells regain their youthfulness.

  • Protect the brain from toxins. Let’s face facts. Our immune systems are under a constant barrage of toxic substances. Bad news: many of these toxins are a direct result of our conscious decisions. Alcohol, drugs, tobacco, and a high-fat, sugar-loaded diet are choices that we make. Worse news: many of these toxins fly under the radar screen: food additives, pesticides, aluminum in our drinking water and lead in the air we breathe all take a toll – on our brains as well as our bodies. Good news: we can take steps immediately to minimize or eliminate the devastating effect of these toxins. Changes in what we eat, air and water filters, stopping smoking, drinking alcohol and ingesting recreational drugs are a good start. Adding certain nootropics to the mix will bump our protection efforts up to the next level.

  • Increase blood flow to the brain. The brain needs oxygen, and this oxygen is delivered by blood flow to the brain. As we age, circulation becomes sluggish. The result is predictable: less blood flow = less oxygen to the brain = lowered cognitive performance. Certain nootropics have been shown to increase this all-important blood flow.

  • Rebuild Myelin, the white matter that protects the nerves in the brain. Picture myelin as a rubber hose. As it ages, it becomes stiff, cracked and frayed. Naturally, when this happens, the water flow is nowhere near what we would like. Myelin protects the nerves in our brain, and as with so many things, as we age, the myelin wears out and gradually loses its ability to protect our brain nerves. The result? The nerves don’t communicate as well, leaving you more and more forgetful. But, help is on the way. There are nootropic nutrients that have the ability to rebuild worn-out myelin…which stops your mental decline as it has run into a brick wall!

  • Stress reduction. It’s common knowledge that some pressure is normal. But continual stress without let-up is a killer. Headaches, digestive problems, insomnia, high blood pressure and heart disease can take a terrible toll on the body. Also, stress can also release chemicals – especially norepinephrine and cortisol – that negatively affect our ability to think. This is still another area that nootropics can help.

  • Increase production of Aminobutyric Acid (GABA). This miracle substance is an important neurotransmitter that calms us down and allows us to focus and concentrate. As our levels of GABA drop, due to stress and aging, it becomes harder and harder to think coherently. But a nootropic herb has shown for centuries that it can work wonders in soothing our stressed-out minds.


The right way to begin

    As with all new actions you take to improve your health, a discussion with your professional health care provider is the first step. Continue your research, stay abreast of current developments, and start slowly.

      In fact, the best course of action is to add one nootropic at a time. See how you feel, and how you react. It is also a good idea to mention to your friends what you are doing, and solicit honest feedback from them.

The right dosage

    This is without a doubt a frustrating area of nootropics. To put it simply, the various nootropics have different effects on people. For example, studies show that for any particular compound, the optimum dosage may vary from person to person by as much as twenty times!

      Here is another thing to keep in mind. Most nootropics have a bell-shaped dosage. What this means is that for each substance, there is an optimal dose, and above or below this dose, the effects are not as profound. Therefore, more is not necessarily better.

     There is also the issue of synergy to consider. Synergy is defined as “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” Keep in mind that if you are taking a few different nootropics, you may be able to lower the optimal dose.

     It’s similar to the amount of coffee or tea consumed during the day: the best way to learn what is right for you is by trial-and-error. One cup may work for you, while your neighbor may feel comfortable with two or three. Experiment, and listen to your body’s feedback.

     When you begin to use a nootropic or a combination of them, look for changes in your alertness, concentration, memory, verbal fluency, organization, and your problem-solving ability.

  Side effects

     Although most nootropics are safe and have been shown to be free from adverse side effects, any new substance (by itself, or taken in combination with other substances) has the potential to produce unknown detrimental effects. As recommended earlier, always consult with a knowledgeable health-care professional to discuss your plans and get the green light. Don’t go it alone.







HGH Levels

Hormone Replacement Therapy > HGH Levels

Human Growth Hormone Declines with Aging

The decrease of growth hormone with age is directly associated with many of the symptoms of aging, including cardiovascular disease, increased body fat, osteoporosis, wrinkling, gray hair, decreased energy, reduced sexual function and interest, and other aging archetypal symptoms. Many of these symptoms have been found in younger adults who have growth hormone deficiency.

Research over the last 40 years confirms the decline of HGH as we age in our adult years and the decline of HGH production accelerates as we age. Therefore, after the age of 30 our bodies are not stimulating the regenerating new healthy cells as fast as they are dying off, and as a net result, aging seems to be the process of our bodies slowly dying faster than it can replace itself at first and the dying process accelerates as we continue to age.

HGH is produced at a rate that peaks during adolescence when accelerated growth occurs. Growth hormone secretion decreases with age in every animal species tested thus far. In humans, the amount of growth hormone after the age of 25 to 30 declines about 14% per decade (or 1% to 2% per year), so that total daily growth hormone production is reduced dramatically with age. In numerical values, we produce on a daily basis about 500 micrograms of growth hormone at age 20, 200 micrograms at age 40, and 25 micrograms at age 80.

Age 40+

At age 40 our growth hormone production is only 40% of what we produced at age 20. The fall in IGF-1 levels with age is identical to the decline of growth hormone.

Another research has shown that by the age of 40, our HGH production is down to 50% of youthful levels. By the age of 55 it sinks to 20%, which is not much more than someone in their 80’s can produce.

Human Growth Hormone Decreases Significantly after the age of 35 to 45. Scientists do not know the exact reason why persons over the age 35 to 45 tend to incur such a significant decrease in HGH growth hormone secretion from the pituitary gland, with the result causing symptoms of aging, andropause ie human growth hormone deficiency.

Some medical research has revealed that the aging pituitary somatotroph cells can still secrete as much growth hormone as the young somatotrophs cells if they are properly and adequately stimulated. As a result some researchers have come up with several theories regarding aging resulting from HGH related deficiency.

HGH Blockers Increase with Age

HGH “Blockers” (called Somatostatin) increase with age
Some research scientists believe the problem lies with somatostatin (HGH “blockers”), the natural inhibitor (blocker) of HGH Human growth hormone. Somatostatin has been found to increase in population within the body with age and may act to block the pituitary’s release of HGH Human Growth Hormone. When researchers eliminated somatostatin production in old rats, they found growth hormone secretion as great as those of young rats. This might indicate theoretically the Pituitary Gland has a life long ability to produce any healthy level of HGH we might desire.
HGH Stimulator’s Decrease with Age

Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone

A second theory is that the precursor hormone, growth hormone-releasing hormone (GH-RH), which stimulates hgh human growth hormone release by the pituitary gland, becomes less sensitive to signals from the hypothalamus. Hence, insufficient GH-RH is released resulting in a decrease of growth hormone secretions over time and age.

Decreased Ability to Process HGH

The Body Requires More HGH as we Age or the Body loses its ability to utilize HGH as we age.

A third theory is that, not only does the growth hormone secreted and available to receptors in our cells decrease with aging, but that the cell receptors become more resistant and less responsive to the human growth hormone. Under this theory, aging can be viewed as a disease of growth hormone resistance within our cell receptors similar to the way in which diabetes is a disease of insulin resistance

HGH Dosage

How much HGH does one use?

Typical Protocol of Human Growth Hormone

A standard protocol utilizing low doses has shown to have the best effects.

A standard protocol for someone over the age of 35, deficient in HGH / IGF-1, and showing signs of Andropause (see symptoms of andropause) is approximately 1IU per day, with 5 days on (Monday through Friday using 1IU per day) and 2 days off (Saturday and Sunday no usage of HGH).

What is the Best time of Day to Inject Human Growth Hormone

Some research has shown the best time to take HGH injections is in the mornings, upon awakening. Other research has also demonstrated the majority of naturally produced HGH is pulsed from the Pituitary Gland at night. This has lead to further studies showing that a once a day injection at night seems to have the most beneficial effect, while some have found doses in the morning provide the best results. A third option is distributed dosing.

Spread Dosing: Using 2 or more injections of HGH a day

Some researchers have administered Human Growth Hormone injections twice daily. A typical dose is split up, once in the morning upon awakening, and once at night before going to sleep. However, most common protocols recommend one time per day.

HGH and Bodybuilding

It is illegal to use Human Growth Hormone for bodybuilding or sports performance enhancement. However many people are buying HGH on the black market for these purposes with growing popularity amongst athletes, Olympians, and Hollywood actors.


It has long been recognized by bodybuilders (even if illegal for this purpose) that growth hormone (GH), a polypeptide hormone secreted in a burst-like manner from the anterior pituitary gland, is enormously important to the growth, development and rejuvenation process of muscle tissue. The following are several reasons why many bodybuilders use HGH.

1. Increased protein synthesis
2. Increases utilization of fatty acids
3. Increases amino acid transport across cell membranes
4. Increases lipolysis (fat breakdown)
5. Increases availability of glucose and amino acids
6. Increases collagen synthesis
7. Stimulates cartilage growth
8. Increases retention of nitrogen, sodium, potassium, and phosphorus

HGH and Recovery Time

Many people have reported excellent recovery time when using human growth hormone and exercising intensely. HGH is very popular among body builders and professional athletes because it significantly improves muscle strength and endurance. HGH also helps to increase the metabolism, promote fat burning, the regeneration of muscles, bones, ligaments, joints, skin, brain cells and organs.

HGH Athletes and Controversy

There is a log of discussion in the US Congress over HGH because many professional athletes are using HGH to gain an advantage over competitors. Athletes who have admitted to using HGH have been fired or suspended from sports.


HGH is used by people with HIV / AIDS to help overcome muscle wasting and degeneration of body parts. More documentation and research is coming out confirming the positive and regenerative results of using HGH for HGH patients.

Positive Results from HGH for Men and Women

Males and females over the age of 35 who have used HGH for genuine medical purposes have reported increased muscle strength and a loss of muscle fat – especially around the waistline.

Do not ask a legitimate doctor for HGH because you want it for bodybuilding. HGH is forbidden for use in competition.
