On this website I like to talk about some of the top muscle-building supplements that you can use to help give you some impressive gains, and some of these include HGH supplements.
However in this article I want to discuss some of the HGH-related stories that have been making the news just recently because there have been quite a few this month, and not all of them have been positive either.
Here are three of the biggest stories this month:
1. Teen Usage Of HGH Is On The Rise
HGH supplements always state that they are only to be used by people over the age of 18, but worryingly it seems as if more and more American teenagers are experimenting with HGH.
A national study that was carried out in 2013 shows that 11% of high school students have used synthetic HGH at least once, which is more than twice as many as previous years, which was always around the 5% mark.
I guess this is hardly surprising because society as a whole is becoming obsessed with looks and physical appearance, and this is even more so amongst young people in particular.
Plus of course these HGH products are widely available nowadays and are very heavily advertised in a wide range of different places, which is another factor that may have led to this sharp rise.
2. Tiger Woods Linked To HGH Guru
Tiger Woods has recently put in a fairly dismal showing in the 2014 Open, finishing in 69th place, 23 shots behind Rory McIlroy (watch the video below to see him reflecting on his overall performance), and the news doesn’t get any better because there has recently been some speculation regarding links between himself and the disgraced Canadian HGH guru Anthony Galea.
Despite having never failed a single drugs test, a new book reports that Tiger Woods paid nearly $200,000 to Galea and an associate for 63 visits between 2008 and 2009.
However both parties claim that Woods was treated with platelet-rich plasma injections to speed up the healing process, which is the story I want to believe because Woods has always been one of my sporting heroes.

3. Intermittent Fasting Boosts HGH By 2000%
Intermittent fasting is said to be great for weight loss, which is why Michael Mosley’s Fast Diet book has become a best-seller in both the United States and the United Kingdom. It is also said to help regenerate the immune system, prevent the brain from shrinking, and provide you with a number of health benefits.
However it was a study by the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute in Utah, referenced here, that really caught my eye because they found that fasting for 24 hours can dramatically increase human growth hormone by as much as 2000% in men and 1300% in women, which is a remarkable finding.
So this appears to be another effective way you can boost your HGH levels.
