How To Increase Growth Hormone Levels (Science Backed Tips - Best of Andrew Huberman)

Here are the four topics of Andrew Huberman's advice on podcasts on Human Growth Hormone, each focusing on "How to increase growth hormone levels naturally":

1. SLOW-WAVE SLEEP / DEEP SLEEP and INSULIN/GLUCOSE LEVELS TO BE LOW at time of sleep: In this interview, Dr. Huberman emphasizes the importance of deep sleep, also known as slow-wave sleep, for the release of growth hormone. He suggests that blood glucose levels should be relatively low at the time of sleep, recommending not to eat within two hours of sleep. He also mentions that small doses of melatonin can increase growth hormone release as it can shift the pattern towards increased slow-wave deep sleep.

2. FASTING & GROWTH HORMONE RELEASE (CONVERSATION with Dr. Kyle Gillett): In this interview with Dr. Kyle Gillett, role of fasting to stimulate the release of growth hormone was discussed. The body typically responds to fasting by releasing growth hormone to preserve muscle tissue and glycogen stores while using stored fat for energy.

3. GHRELIN (binds to same receptor as GHRH): Ghrelin, often referred to as the 'hunger hormone', has a role in stimulating the release of growth hormone. It binds to the same receptor as Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone (GHRH), thereby promoting the secretion of growth hormone. Ghrelin levels typically increase before meals and decrease after eating. One product that mimics ghrelin's effect in stimulating HGH levels is MK-677 or Ibutamoren -

4. PEPTIDES (SOME PEPTIDES LIKE GP 157): Peptides, short sequences of amino acids, can mimic the effect of hormones in the body. Some peptides can change gene expression and set pathways for continued production of the hormone of interest. Dr. Huberman mentions that peptides can increase healing rates, weight loss, recovery, etc. and are used by actors, athletes, etc. However, he also cautions that any time you inject something, your body may stop producing that hormone on its own.

How Are Scientific Papers Published?

How Are Scientific Papers Published?

Did you know I'm a published researcher? That's right, I have my name on at least 6 published scientific studies and at least 1 book chapter. So this week, we're going to talk a little bit about the publishing process, review boards, the peer review process, and journal impact factors. We don't go into detailed information, I just wanted to give a little look behind the curtain about how studies make it into the world.
