How can I increase my human growth hormone (HGH) naturally?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

There are safe alternatives to naturally boost your growth hormone. In addition to the following, remember that exercise, especially strength training, is also a powerful stimulant for growth hormone secretion:

Natural HGH Booster #1: Fenugreek

Early studies show that this vegetable, popular in Asia, stimulates the release of growth hormone and can boost energy levels. Steam fenugreek herbs or enjoy as a tea.

Natural HGH Booster #2: L'Arginine

This amino acid stimulates the release of the growth hormone from the pituitary gland. Take it in supplement form: 2 grams, three times a day.

Natural HGH Booster #3: A Sleep Mask

You release the most growth hormone while you sleep. Use a sleep mask to block out light, allowing melatonin, the sleep hormone, to surge, and get a deeper, more restorative sleep.
