As its name implies, growth hormones stimulate growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in humans.
Growth hormone diminishes as you age, but there are steps you can take to make sure that your hormone levels remain in check as you get older.
The following steps will help you manage your hormone levels and may even promote weight loss.
1. Eat Less Sugar
Elevated insulin levels can lead to reduced levels of growth hormone, especially in overweight adults(1). Obesity is a major factor in stifled growth hormones, so make sure you drop the sugary treats.
Cut down on foods with added sugar. And if you’re insulin resistant, be wary of higher-sugar whole foods like bananas and grapes.
Focus instead on lean proteins, whole grains (like quinoa), and leafy green vegetables; one study found that losing weight led to increased growth hormone levels(2).
