While it may seem harmless, the reality is, it is not!Over the years I have discovered the number one reason people fail to get results from HGH – hydration. If you ask the average person if they drink enough water the typical response is, yes.
The truth is as we age we may drink enough water but there is something else going on that may be causing some problems.
HGH is not the only thing that declines as we age.
There are several compounds in the body that have a direct influence on how efficient our cells function.
Potassium is a very important compound that can be directly responsible for getting the water you drink to make it to the inside of the cell structure.
Number one reason HGH supplements fail – hydration / cell volumization.In an earlier article I wrote how in recent years, scientists have learned that changes in cell volume regulate cell function. In fact the emerging view is that hormones and nutrients exert their controlling influence on cellular activities by altering cell volume. Cell volume is a function of the hydration state of the cell.
The key to obtaining better results from your HGH supplement is “cell volumization.”
Studies have clearly linked the importance of the sodium/potassium ratio in connection with growth hormones.
By increasing your potassium intake and reducing your sodium intake, you shift water from the extracellular compartments of your body into the cells.
A high-water low-sodium intake coupled with a diet high in potassium-rich foods is a sound strategy for hydrating the trillions of cells in your body. As you increase cell volume you increase cell function.
