Low Bodyfat for more HGH

Bodyfat Correlates with less HGH

Staying slim is great for your long term health as well hormonal profile.

Aim for 15% bodyfat or lower as it negatively correlates with HGH and Testosterone whilst increasing estrogen.

Stay lean for HGH

As well all know, it is a good idea to keep the fat off for help reasons.

Obesity over a lifetime is terrible for your health. It places a pressure on almost every aspect of health.

It lead to diabetes, heart disease, stroke and joint problems. It’s also a risk factor for many diseases as well as breast and bowel cancers

Even being a bit overweight has been shown to contribute to some issues.

Too much fat does not favour your hormonal profile either.

More fat leads to leads to less testosterone and more estrogen as fat cells convert or “aromatise” testosterone into estrogen.


Bodyfat Correlates with Reduced HGH

A range of studies (1) (2) indicate that being obese and having BMI correlates with decreased HGH secretion and even cases of adult growth hormone deficiency.

The authors comments suggest that these obese subjects could be deemed to have a HGH deficiency leading to unnecessary HGH treatment.

So it seems a good idea to keep your body fat below as low as possible.

Probably  below 15% if you want to optimise your natural testosterone, estrogen and HGH levels.

You don’t want to get too lean as some body fat is vital for the functioning of your body and organs.

The Verdict

Keep it lean for longevity, body aesthetics and HGH levels.
