Better Body After 50
Your Step by Step Guide to Naturally Boost Growth Hormone and Testosterone
You can have a better body after 50 . . . and the benefits of a hormone profile like you had in your twenties! Lose fat, gain muscle, slow down aging … proven science changes everything!
Men Over 50
Men, it’s time to stop beating your head against the wall trying to lose weight, look younger, be more virile. The answer is not the latest weight loss fad. It’s not an exercise program. And it’s definitely not a drug.
Want to feel like a kid again? That bouncy, feel good, take on the world feeling. I’m not talking caffeine, sports drink, 5 hour energy, racing heartbeat crap. I’m talking “fix it at the source” all systems go.
Your best body after 50 is an all natural, safe, easy to follow plan. And it just doesn’t cost that much either. You can feel the effects start within a week!
Hormones are the culprit and the answer. Changes in your hormone levels are identified as the cause of the changes you see in your body and your health. For example:
* increased body fat
* muscle loss
* low energy
* decreased sexual function
* decreased skin tension
* weakened immune system
* memory loss
* heart disease
* prostate disease
What’s The Natural Part of Aging?
Whew! What you might not realize is that these symptoms are not natural at all, but rather an insidious attack on your male hormone balance caused by outside forces.
What’s worse, mainstream medical advice tells men to accept this decline as a natural part of aging. Lose your manliness, accept getting old.
But don’t worry. I’m here to tell you (from personal experience) you CAN get it back. Here’s why. Your body can produce youthful levels of male hormones throughout your life. It just needs to be stimulated to do it. You can have a better body after 50.
I’m a firm believer in Minimum Effective Dose (MED). Do the least amount of anything needed to achieve your goal. No more, no less. And right now I’m having fun naturally coaxing changes to my system, safely and with no side effects (except great sex). It’s inexpensive, it’s easy, results come quickly, and the effects have gone way beyond physical. Mentally, I act, think and feel very different – empowered, happy.
Better Body Plan
This simple and inexpensive step-by-step plan is your shortcut to boosting free testosterone and human growth hormone naturally and enjoying the results – lose abdominal fat, gain muscle, regain the sex drive you had as a teenager, more energy, better memory, and self confidence.
In addition, I’ll show you how to reduce estrogen and cortisol, two other critical hormones to control. So here’s the plan to be fully male . . . to feel like a kid again . . . and to have a better body after 50.

Better Body After 50: Boosting Human Growth Hormone Part 1
It’s funny. When we’re young, we have no idea how great it is to actually be young. No matter what an older person tells us, we just don’t appreciate or accept what getting older means. As we age, the “all too real” changes show up and before we realize it, our youthfulness is gone.
We see changes like low energy, loss of memory, weight gain, loss of muscularity, decreased immune function, lost sex drive, and a decrease in our general feeling of well being – all seemingly inevitable results of getting old. A major reason for the negative effects of aging, is the gradual loss of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Sadly, HGH starts dropping off from the time we turn 20 and by the age of 40, you see pronounced negative effects of aging. After age 40 we tend to see decreased muscle, thinner, more fragile bones, and thinner skin.
But what if I told you this “natural” loss of Human Growth Hormone can be prevented or even reversed? Take nutritional supplements and make a few lifestyle changes and actually boost your own normal production of HGH! I’m going to share with you a comprehensive plan based on the latest scientific studies that show how you can boost your HGH naturally and safely. This is the primary key to a better body after 50.
Human Growth Hormone – Your Most Powerful Anti-Aging Secret
The pituitary gland, the “master gland” located in the center of the brain, produces Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH stimulates production of another hormone, IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1), by the liver. Together, HGH and IGF-1, increase muscle mass, bone density, reduce body fat, and strengthen the heart. Some studies show increases in skin thickness and enhanced immune system.
HGH production peaks during adolescence and then slowly decreases with age. When we are teenagers or in our early 20s, HGH releases in “pulses” every few hours. By the age of 40, HGH production has dropped off significantly. And at 60, our bodies produce 75% to 80% less HGH than they did when we were 20.
Growth hormone secretion may decline as much as 50% every 7 years after the age of 20. If you’re between the ages of 35 and 70, you are only producing a small fraction of the HGH you once did. European studies actually have shown that adults whose HGH production has been shut down or minimalized due to pituitary surgery survive, on average, no more than 10 years.
However, your body produces HGH throughout your life and, in fact, never loses the ability to produce high levels. Research has shown that the pituitary can be stimulated to produce levels of HGH that you had when you were young. The results are more lean muscle, lower body fat, tighter skin, more energy, and a better immune system – the key to a better body after 50.
Natural HGH Release
Along with diet, exercise, and stress control, a program of Natural HGH releasers can be employed to induce the pituitary gland to secrete extra growth hormone. And according to Mauro Di Pasquale, M.D., an expert in the area of growth hormone releasing compounds, “You don’t have to increase growth hormone very much to get a 10 to 20% rise in IGF-1 levels, which can have a definite effect on the body.”
IGF-1 (Insulin-Like Growth Factor – 1)
You’ve probably heard of athletes and bodybuilders injecting IGF-1 in order to grow huge. IGF-1 is a natural hormone chemically similar to insulin. Fact is, insulin has an amazing impact on muscle growth. The body takes much of the HGH produced up into the liver and converts it to IGF-1.
IGF-1 isn’t a top secret chemical nor is it a steroid. It’s a polypeptide protein hormone that plays a vital role in children’s growth and in muscle growth in adults. IGF-1 is produced when the liver is stimulated by Human Growth Hormone. When HGH levels rise in the bloodstream, the liver responds by producing bursts of IGF-1. These bursts then stimulate cell growth and regeneration, especially in muscles.
IGF-1 lives much longer in the blood stream than does HGH. For this reason, IGF-1 levels are actually what is measured to determine how much HGH you have. The following informational guide will show you how to increase Growth Hormone and IGF-1 levels naturally and safely through exercise, lifestyle, and supplements available from your local or online health food store.
Along with growth hormone releasers, you should also take recommended daily minerals, antioxidant complex, and multivitamin.
Note: You should not undertake self treatment without medical supervision. Even though the suggestions in this guide are natural, there is the potential for adverse side effects or contraindications. Contact your health care provider for their input on the course of action you plan to pursue.
HGH Release – A Complex Process
Natural HGH releasers can play a huge role. However, for HGH to effect anti-aging benefits, other organs and hormones need to be working optimally – specifically, the pancreas, hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the liver. This understanding is critical for a better body after 50.
The process requires:
• Pituitary and hypothalamus for HGH release.
• Healthy liver function to convert HGH to IGF-1
• Regulated pancreas function for optimum insulin and blood sugar levels as well as regulated glucagon and cortisol levels.
Pituitary And Hypothalamus
Combinations of amino acids, discussed earlier, along with other nutrients like niacin, have been shown to trigger the release of HGH by the pituitary. At the same time, they can suppress another hormone called somatostatin, also known as GHIH (Growth Hormone-Inhibiting Hormone) which is known to inhibit HGH release.
Your liver is responsible for filtering toxins from your system and is continually stressed. Your liver filters everything you eat, drink, inhale, or inject. As we age, the liver becomes damaged and less effective. One important impact of this how it affects the conversion of HGH to the hormone IGF-1.
HGH only lives about 30 minutes in your bloodstream. During this time it can perform its magic. It takes about 30 minutes for HGH to reach the liver. Once there, it converts to IGF-1 to continue the tissue rebuilding, growth, and cell repair that comes from aging or injury.
IGF-1 stays in the bloodstream much longer than HGH. And an optimally performing liver is vital to convert HGH to IGF-1.
Pancreas / Insulin / Cortisol
Blood sugar levels have a great impact on HGH and its actions. Therefore, as we age, glucose intolerance may increase. Glucose intolerance leads to high blood sugar levels and high insulin levels. When blood sugar levels are elevated, the hypothalamus signals the pituitary gland to shut off production of HGH. Concurrently, the pancreas is triggered to release insulin. High insulin effectively stops HGH production.
Also, as insulin increases so does another hormone, cortisol. If growth hormone is the anti-aging hormone, cortisol is just the opposite. High cortisol levels are linked to several major factors of aging:
• Reduced immune function
• High cholesterol and triglycerides
• Skin problems including wrinkles and hair loss
• Poor sleep
• Memory loss
• Decreased cognitive function
• Reduced hormone receptor sensitivity, affecting insulin levels as well as testosterone and estrogen levels.
Now when blood sugar levels are low, the hypothalamus does something different. It signals the pituitary to produce HGH which in turn stimulates the body to burn stored fat. Moreover, this usually happens at night while your body is effectively “fasting” during sleep.
It’s obviously quite important for HGH release to stabilize your insulin release and blood sugar levels. And how do you do that – with diet, exercise, and supplements. Keep reading to see how.
