The link between water, HGH, and Testosterone

Our clinic specializes in hormone replacement therapies: Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Replacement Therapy, and Sermorelin Replacement Therapy.

We focus on hormone replacement therapies for one reason: THEY WORK! That’s right. The replacement of the loss of our vital hormones due to aging is an essential component of any anti-aging or longevity regimen.

And we don’t stop with administering hormone therapies. We are a holistic clinic with a multi-faceted approach to our treatment programs. Nutrition, stress reduction, exercise routines, supplements, sleep, methods of detoxification, and another topic that is all-to-often overlooked: Staying adequately hydrated.

Why water is critical to your continued good health

Water is so essential for our body’s functioning at the highest level. Even a tiny amount of dehydration (1-2%) can impair our ability to concentrate, lower our energy levels and endurance, increase cortisol (the “stress hormone”), lower testosterone, and affect our digestive system.

The lowered testosterone from dehydration is due to the increase in cortisol. Remember the simple equation: more cortisol = less testosterone.

Our bodies are approximately 80% water, and our cells need water to function efficiently. Here are a few of the benefits of maintaining sufficient hydration:

  • Weight loss. Water is a great appetite suppressor that is especially helpful for folks who are cutting calories.
  • Improved cardiovascular health by lowering LDL (the bad) cholesterol and boosting HDH (the good) cholesterol levels.
  • Improved skin tone
  • Sharper thinking. Dehydration has been called the number one cause of brain fog. This makes sense when considering that the brain comprises around 75% water. Hydration is crucial for delivering nutrients to the brain and toxin removal.
  • Smoother digestion. Water plays a crucial role in absorbing the nutrients from our food.
  • Longer stamina when exercising
  • Boosting energy levels
  • Easing headaches
  • Flush toxins from the body
  • Cellular health
  • Improve gallbladder function
  • Kidney stone prevention
  • Improved temperature regulation
  • Healthier joints. Our joints are 80% water – keep them lubricated to reduce joint aches and pains.


How to stay hydrated

The typical article of faith promoted by “the experts” is to “drink eight glasses of water daily.” However, research has concluded that things are not that simple. The key is how much water you drink enters your cells and how efficiently the cells put that water to good use. This is a case of quality over quantity.

Mitochondria are defined as the powerhouse of the cells since they produce our energy. A vital ingredient in this process is the hydrogen in water is used by the mitochondria to pump out more energy.

Hydrogen in water also acts as a “Pac-man” by gobbling up free radicals, which is crucial for lowering inflammation.

Here is where water quality plays a significant role in our cell’s ability to perform as needed. Electrodes help to boost hydration, and essential electrodes are sodium chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.

What is Mineral Water?

 Mineral water is also spring water because it comes from natural springs. A natural spring is a natural groundwater flow from underground sources rich in natural minerals.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines state that water must contain 1,500 milligrams per liter of total dissolved minerals to be classified as mineral water.

Since the mineral content widely varies depending on the type of mineral water, there is no recommended daily amount. However, the two most common nutrients in mineral water are calcium and magnesium. The intake guidelines for calcium are up to 1,200 milligrams daily, while the intake guidelines for adults are up to 420 milligrams daily.

The Mineral Water Difference

As the name implies, mineral water contains sodium, magnesium, calcium, and sulfur minerals. Minerals play a significant role in cell absorption of water. If our cells are sluggish, absorption will be affected. Due to its mineral content, mineral water assists this absorption process.

Health risks of water

As with many beneficial nutrients, water can become “too much of a good thing.” It is possible to drink too much water, leading to a condition known as water intoxication. Gulping down copious amounts of water quickly could lower the amount of sodium in the body. This is critical since sodium’s job is to monitor the amount of water in the cells. Too much water in our cells can cause an imbalance and lead to a condition called hyponatremia.

On rare occasions, water intoxication can lead to comas and seizures and can prove fatal.

Mineral water may be a problem for people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is due to the carbonation of mineral water, which can lead to uncomfortable bloating.

A common downside to drinking water is a four-letter word for health-conscious people: plastic. Bottled water from plastic bottles may contain tiny pieces of plastic debris known as microplastic. This toxic substance has been shown to damage human cells and even cause cellular death.

Another problem with plastic water bottles is a chemical called polyethylene terephthalate (PET), otherwise known as plastic #1, which is the main component of plastic bottles. PET can wreak havoc by disrupting our endocrine system, which causes an adverse cascading effect on our hormones.

Still another issue with plastic bottle water is a nasty chemical called plastic #7 that contains bisphenol A, also known as BPA. The side effects of BPA are respiratory irritation, fertility problems, and long-term exposure to BPA may cause liver and kidney damage. The issues with BPA become worse when the bottles are hot or stored for an extended time.

To avoid these issues, be sure to install a reverse osmosis water filter, drink well water, filtered water, or glass bottled water.
