HGH for Cholesterol

What is cholesterol and what is HGH?

People hear the word "cholesterol", understand that they have to keep their cholesterol in check, but react somewhat negatively to the word. However, there is no real need for that. A good example is that of temperature.

An outdoor temperature of 45C would be considered "bad" temperature because it is excessively hot, while an outside temperature of 20C would be considered "good" temperature because it is comfortable weather, but "temperature" itself is neutral.

Cholesterol is similar to that. There is "bad" cholesterol (technically known as low density lipoprotein or LDL) and "good" cholesterol (high density lipoprotein or HDL) because of their respective impacts on the functioning of the heart.

However, "bad" cholesterol may be bad, but it is still necessary. To ensure the optimal functioning of the heart, the ratio of your total cholesterol number to your "good" cholesterol number should be 3.5:1 or less.

For example, if your total cholesterol number is 200 and your HDL is 50 then you have a ratio of 4:1. In such a case, it is theoretically possible to increase your HDL (and thus lower the ratio) but it is better and easier to lower your total number.

This can be done by not eating foods high in LDL such as beef, butter, cheese, fats, meat, pork, refined and processed foods, and fatty sausages, and by exercising.

HGH is Human Growth Hormone. It is one of several things that the body needs and which can be considered a panacea (much like vitamin C and omega-3 fatty acids).

It has been called the master hormone, is used in anti aging therapy and is needed to help get and maintain healthy levels of cholesterol, to improve heart functions, to forestall signs of aging, and to minimize fat in the body.

HGH and cholesterol

Earlier, it was mentioned that, although you can raise your HDL, the usual procedure is to lower your LDL. However, numerous studies have shown that HGH does both. In other words, HGH can bring and keep your cholesterol ratio to safe levels far more efficiently, effectively and quickly that doing just one or the other.

Although this is extremely beneficial in maintaining a healthy heart and lowering the risks of heart attacks, strokes and other medical illnesses, diseases and conditions, there can be side effects to the use of HGH. Long term and continuous use of HGH has been shown to be harmful to the kidneys and to the liver, unless you make use of natural supplements instead of injections.

HGH and cholesterol in relation to You

There are some things that you can do whilst taking HGH to continue to maximize the benefits and to limit your dependence on HGH in order to avoid the long-term deleterious effects. These things include:

Drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Dehydration often leads to a decrease in the body's ability to produce HGH. There is a great deal of variance into what constitutes "lots" of water. A good rule of thumb is to drink enough to need to urinate every 3 hours.

Eat enough good food. Earlier, it was mentioned which foods to avoid. The foods you should consume more of include fruits, green leafy vegetables, whole wheat and others.

Exercise. It is not material whether it is aerobic or strength exercises; the important thing is to exercise which helps produce HGH in the body and, on its own, improves the health of the heart by lowering LDL.

Get enough and good sleep. Studies have shown that your own body creates HGH naturally about one hour after entering deep sleep. Increase your chances of getting such sleep by eliminating light, noise and other distractions for about eight hours.

Stop smoking and drinking alcohol. Some studies have shown some health benefits to moderate amounts of alcohol. However, if you are concerned about your cholesterol, the bad may outweigh the good. Never smoke. There has never been and never will be any health benefits to smoking tobacco.
