    A new study reveals that a special blend of four amino acids has the potential to spike human growth hormone (HGH) levels by more than 600%. To boost your HGH levels naturally, try taking this supplement that researchers have deemed the most powerful anti-aging amino acid combination. Remember the acronym G-O-A-L when shopping for this supplement, and make sure it contains the following:
    • Glycine keeps muscles strong and allows you to store more energy. It also promotes a good night’s sleep.
    • Ornithine helps remove toxins from the body, which can otherwise zap your energy.
    • Arginine keeps energy levels up by helping to regulate blood pressure so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard. This amino acid may also help decrease body fat, another energy drain.
    • Lysine aids in turning fatty foods into energy.
    Look for a supplement that contains at least 2,000 mg of these amino acids combined.
