HGH supplements don't compare with the natural Growth Hormone created during strength training

MSNBC is taking a closer look at Human Growth Hormone (HGH) with a roundup of research on the substance. Their bottom line? HGH is somewhat effective in enhancing lean body mass and reducing body fat, especially in men, but the best bet is to stick with diet and physical exercise.

The real story? For once, I agree with the information found in the mainstream press. HGH is a phenomenal substance for longevity and health, but only if you create it yourself. I don't believe in taking Human Growth Hormone shots. They're extremely expensive, for one thing, and they simply don't compare with the results achieved by a good strength training program.

I engage in strength training activities on a regular basis, and in my experience, there's simply no better way to get HGH coursing through your veins than to leg press half a ton (which I exactly what I leg press right now in a partial-range rep, by the way). Yes, you can't walk the next day, but you've just generated perhaps $3,000 worth of HGH the natural way, and no needles were required. Add some outstanding nutrition -- with whey protein, quinoa and spirulina -- and you've turned your own body into a Growth Hormone generation machine.

HGH supplements are only for people who want a shortcut. If you're one of those people, hey, I don't blame ya. Try all the shortcuts first. Then, after you've spent a small fortune and still haven't achieved the results you were looking for, you'll have to do it the hard way -- the way the real athletes do it. And that's accomplished by avoiding all processed carbohydrates and refined sugars, eating superfood supplements like spirulina and chlorella, drinking nothing but pure water, and engaging in at least two hours of physical training every single day. For me, it's around one hour with cardiovascular exercise, and another 90 minutes or so with flexibility training and lifting weights.

Yes, it's the hard way. But it's the only way that makes you healthy. Still, if you're skeptical, go ahead and try the HGH supplements first. If you stay away from the needles and just take pro-HGH pills, they won't hurt you (they're mostly just amino acids), and in fact, they may help you in other ways. Just don't expect a whole lot of HGH from a pill. You've got to create it yourself... the hard way!

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
