1. Fava Beans
Fava beans occupy the number one spot for food that promotes increased HGH production, they are jammed with L-Dopa which has been shown to cause a large increase in HGH and they also raise testosterone and dopamine.
The JCE (Journal of Clinical Endocrinology) has endorsed pineapple as a top way to increase HGH production and they recommend the most efficient time to eat it is prior to bed. JCE reveals that it is packed with natural substances that encourage release of melatonin and serotonin during sleep, which then stimulates HGH production.
3. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is packed with nutrition and in addition is capable of elevating HGH levels for up to four hours. 1g per kg of your bodyweight in pre-workout shake should do the trick according to the Journal of Endocrinology.
Research out of Department of Physiology, Louisiana State University indicates that even as little as 2g of foods high in the amino acid glutamine, like yogurt, is enough to increase HGH. Research suggests that after dinner consumption is best.
5. Goji Berries
Goji berries are are considered a high dense nutrient food. The berries have an impressive nutritional resume including vitamins, high amino-acid content, and essential fatty acids. Your hormonal profile include elevated HGH can be positively influenced by eating them. In addition they contain a particular phytonutrient, Sesquiterpenoids, which singularly acts to stimulate HGH production.
More accurately, raw cacao (ONLY when it’s raw) signals a significant release of endorphin, serotonin, and dopamine. This leads to increased stamina & elevated human growth hormone, HGH levels.
7. Organic Chicken
Organic chicken is rich in the amino acid glycine. Recent studies have shown that glycine does indeed boost growth hormone levels. Researchers have know for sometime about the use of glycine to increase muscle strength and now they confirm it is the direct result of its HGH elevation capabilities
Eggs have high levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA which triggers the pituitary gland to produce HGH. The added benefit of GABA is that it is a neurotransmitter which can block nerve impulses, which has a relaxing and calming effect and tends to inhibit pain.
9. Raw Nuts
Raw nuts are high in L-arginine, an amino acid that stimulates increased natural HGH. L-arginine’s promotion of increased HGH production also helps to lower total body fat. Other nuts high in L-arginine include Brazil nuts, peanuts and walnuts.
10. Whey Protein
Research proves that whey protein increases HGH production. While that is not a surprise because whey is full of growth enhancing amino acids that trigger muscle growth. Only purchase whey that is undenatured and has NO fillers.
