It's well known that human growth hormone (HGH) is essential for achieving optimal health. Falling HGH levels result in premature aging, loss of lean body mass, lower levels of energy, and a whole host of other aging-related symptoms. But getting a boost in growth hormone should come from natural sources, not drug injections, say an increasing number of doctors and nutritionists. In other words: if you want the anti-aging benefits of HGH, you'll be far better off finding ways to allow your body to create the substance on its own. But how do you do that?

There are all sorts of nutritional supplements that serve as precursors to HGH synthesis in the human body, and that's a good place to start. But supplements alone will do you little good if your body isn't primed to use the raw materials and actually start building human growth hormone for you. There are many ways to convince your body that it needs more growth hormone, but none of them involve sitting on the couch, punching away at the TV remote. If you want HGH, you have to earn it.

The number one method for convincing your body to generate HGH is high intensity strength training. It's yet one more good reason to start a program of strength training, and it doesn't mean you need to join a gym or start pumping weights, either. You can get a fantastic, high-intensity workout using nothing but your body and a mat on the floor if you learn about something called "body weight training." It means using your body as the weight. For starters, try a one-legged squat. Just stand on one leg, lower yourself to the ground, then raised yourself back up without using your other leg. Not so easy, is it? Learn more about Pilates or get involved in adult gymnastics to discover even more ways to practice strength training using your body weight.

Nothing beats strength training for creating human growth hormone, but there's another factor that's just as important: adequate sleep. Studies show that growth hormone is produced during the later stages of nightly sleep, and if you cut your sleep short (five or six hours instead of seven or eight), you short-change your HGH production. Sleep is absolutely essential for staying young, healthy, and vibrant. Aim for eight hours each night.

Lack of stress is also critical for proper human growth hormone balance -- a body that's under constant stress will experience a decline in HGH production. (That's due to the interaction of stress hormones like adrenaline.) So, in a very real sense, staying relaxed and stress-free will make you live longer. Good ways to reduce stress include meditation, cardiovascular exercise, and my favorite: laughter.

Get lots of laughter in your life. Or do what I do and join a comedy improv group so you can have a good hour or two of laughter each week -- even if you're laughing at yourself! A famous person once said, "He who can laugh at himself will never suffer from a lack of entertainment." Dr. Patch Adams was a strong advocate of laughter for healing, and if you pick up any books by Dr. Bernie Siegel, you'll learn even more about the healing powers of laughter. Laughter is great medicine, and it's fantastic for generating HGH.

The bottom line: there are all sorts of ways to get more HGH into your bloodstream, and injecting prescription growth hormone is the worst way to go about it. Instead, create your own HGH naturally. Engage in high-intensity strength training, take nutritional supplements that promote HGH production, get plenty of sleep, reduce the level of stress in your life, and find a way to engage in regular laughter. The result? You'll add years to your lifespan and biologically reset your present age, too! A mere 30 days of stress reduction, laughter, sleep and exercise can literally make people act and feel two decades younger!

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.
