Supplements continued (Part 2)

Omega-3 fatty acids or the “good fat” as some people call it, are essential fatty acids that numerous researchers have found to have positive effects on the body. There are four main types of fat found in food: Mono and Polyunsaturated fats, and Omega 3 and 6 fats, these are the good kinds, but then you also have Saturated and Trans fats, which are the bad kinds. Your body requires 12%-20% of your diet to come from fat if your eating right, so you cant cut them out if you want to have a healthy diet, you just have to take charge and try to meet those requirements with the “good fats” so you can have a healthy body. You can find these healthy fats in some fish such as salmon, halibut, cod, shrimp and tuna, plus in many other excellent sources such as, tofu, cauliflower, scallops, collard greens, Brussels sprouts, soybeans, cloves, kale and cabbage. 

Omega-3 can reduce inflammation throughout your body, lower the fat from cholesterol and triglycerides circulating in the bloodstream, help prevent cancer cell growth and reduce your risk of obesity just to name a few. You should increase your omega-3 intake if you have Type 2 diabetes, suffer from depression, if you have joint pain, are often fatigued or have cardiovascular disease as omega-3 has been proven to help with these issues. You can also increase your omega-3 to prevent these medical problems from ever happening.

HGH or human growth hormone, is produced by your anterior pituitary gland under the stimulation of the hypothalamus, or in simple terms, its produced in your very own body. HGH has many amazing effects and I am going to share them with you. HGH promotes and increases the synthesis of new protein tissues, or in other words, it acts just like when your muscles repair themselves after a workout,  which is how you build muscle, plus it helps with the metabolism of body-fat and converting that fat into energy, it also helps the development of tougher bones, it promotes the quality and healthiness of the heart and kidneys and can even help better your sleeping patterns, it does this by helping you achieve a deeper sleep and entering REM cycles, also you hit REM faster and longer in duration.

So how do I get it or more of it? one way is training, GH is released naturally when training or working out, the key for maximum HGH promotion is long periods of intense training. Another way to produce HGH is quite simple, while your resting, 75% of your total HGH production of the day is produced while sleeping, getting 8-10 hours of rest is best if you want to get lean muscle mass in a quick manner. The most important and the best way is to get HGH is in nutrition or your diet, which is also a major key to the results you can expect from the gym. HGH building starts with maybe you guessed it “Amino acids” (protein) but for this to work, your diet must have 12%-20% of good fats, other dietary sources that promote HGH is Vitamin C, Vitamin B3 and most anti-oxidant carrying foods and the last way is in Supplementation, which for the most part is illegal and can be very harmful if not correctly taken, so I do not suggest this in anyway whatsoever. Too much natural HG  can bring on a condition called acromegaly, your muscles will grow, as well as your intestines, your face and your bones, and to boot the muscle is non-functional so messing around with supplemental GH can be devastating. 

I was going to also tell you about Chromium, but its going to have to wait till my next article, as well as steroids. I will cover these in the next issue and then we can move on to my next dose of information I want to share with you.
