Human Growth Hormone is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth and regeneration in humans. It is an important hormone that has an influence on how tall we are. Human growth hormone is produced in the pituitary gland and many different factors are known to influence growth hormone production.
Age, gender, diet, exercise and stress as well as other hormones influence the secretion of this valuable hormone. In general young adolescents will produce a lot more growth hormone than adults as secretion rates decrease with increased age. Whilst there are certain factors that influence the hormones secretion that we cannot control such as age and gender we can certainly influence and maximise output.
A protein rich diet will increase human growth hormone levels. Whey protein for example as well as fish and meats should be a staple of a diet for someone who wishes to gain height. This is because protein is made up of certain amino acids that are used by the body to produce human growth hormone. Important amino acids proven to do this include – l-glutamine, l-arginine, l-leucine and l-tyrosine. Supplementing with small amounts of these amino acids will help in attempting to grow taller.
Make sure to consult with a doctor before beginning an intensive exercise regime. One exercise regime that is proven to help increase human growth hormone is high intensity interval training. This is when you train in intervals alternating between periods of rest and periods of maximum exertion. Sprints are a good HIIT exercise routine. Run as fast as you can for 15-20 seconds, then rest for a few minutes and then repeat. Ever wonder why sprinters are so big and muscled at the Olympics?
