If you're going to optimise growth and repair with HGH increasers, all the hormonal values should be supported so the HGH can heal the beat-up glands and let them start to restore their normal output in balance too. Hormonal balancing nicely complements increasing growth hormone to youthful levels for the reversal of several so-called degenerative diseases, age-related complications, and in anti-aging programs.
The aging process is inextricably tied to a decrease in beneficial hormones, the repair hormones, especially growth hormone (somapause), thyroid, sex hormones (andropause, menopause) and DHEA, and an increase in hormones whose elevated levels are clearly harmful, such as insulin. Low DHEA, a sex hormone building block, is associated with accelerated age-related disease, depression, and cancer risk, as is low growth hormone. Balanced hormone levels are vital to our health and well-being; minimizing the effects of their slackening output is becoming a science but has been done for perhaps thousands of years.
Vitamins and minerals are essential in promoting a healthy glandular and reproductive system; they are involved in numerous physiological processes, one of which is to facilitate the production of hormones. A study published in Fertility and Sterility found that men who received both folic acid and zinc sulfate increased their sperm counts by as much as 74 percent. In a study on menopausal women, vitamin E provided significant relief. Data shows that vitamin E enhances the ability of selenium, an essential mineral, to prevent breast cancer. Both vitamin E and selenium also promote fertility. Essential fatty acids, as found in fish oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Flax Seed Oil, not only help relieve PMS and painful menstruation, but they are necessary for the production and balance of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances which regulate all body systems and functions, including the reproductive system.
Plants contain phytochemicals that support the body's healing and or hormonal balance by supplying raw materials. Tribulus terrestris for example has been proven to improve sexual desire and enhance erection by increasing DHEA. Maca contains l-dopa, a growth hormone increaser and neurotransmitter. Damiana had been used for men due to its testosterogenic properties; however, research shows enhancing testosterone activity just slightly in women improves sex drive dramatically. Similarly, though Siberian ginseng has long been considered an aphrodisiac for men, reports show that women have also felt greater sexual responsiveness after using it. Dong Guai, one of the most widely used herbs in Chinese women's medicine, is an all-purpose sexual and reproductive tonic. Sarsaparilla has been used as a tonic for sustaining youth and sexual vigor. Saw palmetto, which is now mostly used by men, was used by nineteenth-century herbalists to help restore libido in women and to increase breast size. Epimedium species, called Horny Goat Weed, along with Maca and a few others are actually classic adaptogens to both sexes and it's inaccurate and a disservice to categorise them as sex herbs. Noni, Ginseng, Black Cohosh, Eurycoma longifolia, Pimpinella pruacen, Muara puama, Ginkgo biloba, Yohimbe, and others have also been used for centuries.
Dr. Philip White and Dr. Donald McLeod, the continent's most sought-after anti-aging speakers, go into this important subject by bringing decades of medical expertise to the table. They speak on the importance of raising growth hormone levels and hormone balancing, free radical damage and antioxidants, nutrition, the immune system etc., in the context of your own anti-aging program, which is what this personal tweaking is really all about, isn't it? They use amino acids for the growth factors and the herbs as an adjunct.
Jo and I took SomaLife gHP to increase HGH for awhile before we switched to arginine pyroglutamate, l-lysine and phenyl-ethylamine and only occasionally pregnenolone now.
