Often touted as the fountain of youth, human growth hormone (HGH) has a powerful influence on how much fat or muscle your body has. The secret lies in finding a source that’s both natural and affordable.
Synthetic HGH, for instance, is extremely expensive. In fact, those who have an HGH deficiency could spend between $10,000 and $30,000 a year to replace it. This is obviously cost prohibitive for most people and, unless you have a pituitary deficiency, completely unnecessary.
Fortunately, two lifestyle modifications can optimize your body’s natural production of HGH: How you exercise and your nutrition status. This is where WinFit can really help.
The WinFit Exercise Approach Naturally Elevates HGH
Studies and practical experience show that doing an exercise with greater intensity induces a greater HGH release than workouts using lightweight at a lower intensity. Likewise, this is why the WinFit System includes HIIT and Tabata training as part of its regimen.
In fact, a recent study conducted at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, shows that sprinting for 20 seconds, resting for one minute, and then repeating this two more times (one minute of exercise) provides the same amount of fat loss as 45 MINUTES of walking. Importantly, this repeated exercise-rest cycle also promotes very large releases of growth hormones, which is the most efficient way to train your body.1
We also recommend consuming protein and carbohydrates immediately following your workout to enhance your training. This will help maximize muscle building, while reducing cortisol, which is known to increase blood sugar, suppress the immune system, and decrease bone formation. But to stay on track with your WinFit results, make sure this protein and these carbohydrates are only consumed during your Eight-Hour Eating Window.
Theta One Also Naturally Elevates HGH
Nutrition also plays a role in HGH production. For instance, Our Theta One nutrition formula (also included in the WinFit System) contains L-arginine, which improves HGH response. And research shows that HGH helps build lean muscle and metabolize fat.2
