The pituitary gland produces human growth hormone (HGH). It is one of the essential hormones in the human body.

Human growth hormone can be called growth hormone. This is because it plays a vital role in body composition, growth, metabolism, and cell repair (1, 2).

Human growth hormone boosts muscle strength, growth, and performance during exercise and facilitates recovery from disease and injury (3, 4, 5).

A person deficient in human growth hormone may have a decreased quality of life, a high risk of disease, and gain plenty of fat (6).

A person must have optimal growth hormone levels during injury recovery, athletic training, and weight loss (7, 8, 9, 10).

Studies have shown that a person’s lifestyle choices and diet can affect the levels of HGH in the body (11, 12).

This article will discuss seven evidence-based ways to boost your growth hormone levels.

Natural ways to boost your growth hormone levels

Let’s discuss seven ways to boost your human growth hormone levels. I’m not a fan of taking synthetic growth hormones. However, there are excellent natural ways to increase your growth hormone levels.

Get plenty of sleep

Most of the human growth hormone is released during sleep. And they’re released in pulses. These HGH pulses are based on the circadian rhythm. Your circadian rhythm is your body’s internal clock.

Giant HGH pulses are released just before midnight. Smaller pulses are emitted in the early morning (13, 14).

Some studies have shown that inadequate sleep or poor sleep quality can reduce the amount of HGH produced by your body (15).

Studies have also proven that getting enough deep sleep will boost the long-term production of HGH (14, 15).

Here are some tips to improve the quality of your sleep:
